A FOLBIB Lur. A folded page, old, stained and blurred, I found within your book last night. I did not read the dim, dark word I saw in the slow wanikg light; So put it back, and left it there As if in truth I did not care. Ah! we bare all a folded leaf That in Time's book of long ago We leave: a half-relief Falls on us when we hide it so. We folded it down, then turn away, And who may read that page to day? Not yon, my child; nor you, my wife, AVho sit beside my study chair; For ell have something in their life That they, and they alone, may bear— A trilling life, a deadly sin, A something bought they did not win. My iolded leaf bow blue eyes gleam And dot the dark brown eyes I see; And golden curls at evening beam Above the black locks at my knee. Ah me! th't leaf is folded down, And aye for me the looks are brown. And yet I love them who sit by, My best and dearest—dearest now. They may not know for what I sigh, What brings the shadow on my brow. Ghosts at the best; so let them be...

Vera Sassulitch. Few things which of late • oc curred in Russia, where stirrifents succeed one another with stai); ra pidity, created so great a seniu as the Vera Sassulitch episode.

She was the school fil of the sister of Netchaieff, the comtor whom Switzerland refused to exite. Miss Netchaieff was thrown intQiou for the offense of being her btr's sister, and Vera Sassulitch was liise imprisoned for being the triendthe conspirator's sister.

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, APRIL 1, ISSO. Howlish Wampo, the head chief of the Cay Use Indians on the Umatilla! reservation, died march 10th. He was ' the Indian who furnished the money when Moses and his party went to Washington a year ago, and was among j those who stopped at the post in this city when preparations were making for the journey. It is a matter of some surprise to an Intelligent public when they reflect upon some of the laws passed by the last legislature and approved by our Territorial Governor, that they were ever allowed to be entered upon our statute books. And after reflecting thus, it is not surprising that this in telligent public come to the conclusion that our executive was either asleep or did not read the laws to which he artlxed his signature. And another surprise is, that this same executive is using every means to secure his re-ap poiutiueut. Verily this is an age of surprisingincidents.—CofM»)6i'a Chron icle.

YANCOUYER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AN D COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. Lost In the Forest of Western New York. BT L. B. PROCTOR. In the discharge of their judicial du ties the early judges of the Supreme Court of the State of New York were compelled to travel—often on horseback —to the most distant counties. Their route often lay through forests opened by the thoroughfare except what were known as "bridle paths." Among these early judges was the il lustrious James Kent, afterwards Chan cellor of the State and author of those incomparable law lectures and commen taries, "distinguished alike for classic elegance and deep erudicatian," which unite his name with that of Montes quieu, Blackstone, Coke, and other great legal commentators. He was appointed a judge of the Supreme Court in Febru ary, 1798, Chitf Justice in 1804, and Chancellor in October, 1814. Before his elevation to the bench he attained a peerless position at the bar, while he was equal...

I am rather new, you see ; this is my first journey wi'h a lady. Do they al ways eat like this?" "She does it to occupy her mind, 1 suppose," said the Bag. "1 have often noticed that people eat when there is nothing else to do. 1 saw it on the steamer when we went abroad." "Well, I hate it," said the Basket "It looks so greedy, eating all the time. I don't think I like traveling with ladies, anyway." "Liko it!" said the Bag. "I should think not, indeed! They are never puiet a moment.

Oil SHIPS AT SKA. How many of us have ships at sea, Freighted with wishes and hopes and fears Tossing about on the waves, while we Linger and wait on the shores for years, Gazing afar through the distance dim And sighing, will ever our ships come in? We sent them away with laughter and song, The decks were white and the sails were new. The frsgrant breezes bore them along, The sea was calm and the sky was blue. And we thought as we watched them sail away, Of the joy they would bring us some future day, " Long have we watched beside the Bhore, To catch the gleam of some coming sail, But we only hear the breakers' roar, Or the sweeping night winds' dismal wail, Till our cheeks grow pale, and our eyes grow dim, And we sadly sigh, will they ever come in? O! poor Bad heart with its burden of cares, Its aims defeated, its worthless life, That has garnered only the thorns and the tares, That is seared and torn in the pitiful strife, Afar on the heavenly golden shore Thy ships are anchored ...

American Alum Eaters. Dr. Mott, of this city, who deserves great commendation for his untiring efforts in exposing tho various processes of food adulteration and who has done much toward remedying tho evil, has recently demonstrated by a series of ex periments the pernicious and even dan gerous effects of alum introduced into the stomach in any kind of food. And yet lie informs us that most of the bread, cake, crackers, puddings, etc., that we eat every day, contains an in gredient of more or less of this un healthy drug. Most of the common baking powders are prepared with Bome alum. But tho unfortunate American stom ach is not only compelled to receive its regular daily quantum of alum, ' but much of the tea, coffee, sugar, butter, etc., for which that inoffensive organ is the receptacle, is rendered highly dele terious by foreign substances put into those articles of diet to give them color, flavor or weight It should not, therefore, be a matter of wonder that we are a nation of d...

TAIfCOUYKE INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL FAFER OK CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, 'Washington Ter ritory. The tiondon Times. The Fin»3t Newspaper Establishment in the World. London - , Jan. 20.—Printing House Equate, which sounds so from across the seas, is in London so modest a place that one can readily pass it by unwit tingly, as I did, after having tixed its general locality from the map and started out to find it. This, however, is becaus? of the magnitude of London, which is so immense that one only comes to a conception of it slowly and by expe rience such as this. The Times building is really a massive pile of solid brick of fair architectural effect, which in New York or Philadel phia might be one of the features of the «itv.

Rev. Mr. Cowley's Punishment. Yesterday morning the Rev. Edward Cowley had eaten his thick slice of prison bread and drunk his cup of coffee, condensed milk and sugar, and was stretched on his back on the cot in cell No. 19 in the Tombs, reading a news paper. He wag disturbed by a visit from Under Sheriff Joel O. Stevens and Deputy Sheriff C. K. Smith, wiio noti fied him that he must hurry hi? prepa rations for transfer to the penitentiary. " Does my counsel know 1" he asked, without coucealing his surprise and agi tation. " I suppose ho does," was the reply. " And am I to go with—with the — others V he asked, referring to the jour ney that many fellow prisoners were about to undertake in the prison wagon. He was told that he would go by street car with the Deputy Sheriff. J lustily gathering his belongings and making a bundle of them, he put on a rusty black overcoat and a small derby hat. Then he stepped out on the prison Door. The Under Sheriff, who had shown the War den the comm...

Old Newspaper Habitß. When the British burned the Capitol and public buildings in Washington in 1814, they destroyed tho public records. Among the debris a few papers were found and preserved, but, in the Senate and House libraries the ollicial record only goes back to 1815. Tho Senate library, however, contains the files of newspapers running buck lo 1800, und in the afisenco of the ollicinl records they become very valuable. These files are an interesting study, especially to a citizen of Washington. The oldest jiaper on file is tho "National Intelli gencer and Washington Advertiser, printed by Samuel Harrison Smith, New Jersey avenue, near tho Capitol/' The first issue was on Friday, October 31, 1800, and it contains a lengthy apology for delay in getting the paper out. Tho mission of the paper, so the editor statos in a double leaded salutatory, ' is to dif fuse correct information through the whole extent of the Union."
