WHAT HAT BE EXPECTED. A STOBY IN SBTHR. Kate was tall and handsome and stately, and then She greatly affected the costuoie of men; With a Derby like hat of her brother Ben Which she wore to a little one-sided, when She walked in the streets, so admired by men; And coat of a masculine pattern —Ben Often said he oould not tell girls from men. And calling one day on her friend, Miss Wren, She stood with her hands in her pockets, when Behind her approached a youth—"Ha, Ben!" He shouted, aud 0, such a thump! All then Arose thrieks that would never, he knew, from Ben Be heard, and down she fell in a hoap. No pen Can describe the youth's consternation,when He discovered the sister instead of Ben. He begged her forgiveness again and again, But she could nok have granted forgiveness then. Unfortunate girl, even il she'd not been As mad as she was aud as weak as a hen — For her voice was non est, and in truth she did then Make a vow to herself that she'd never again Say one word to " that hat...

The Native Hoodlum. An entirely original product of San Francisco is tho hoodlum. He is c. cross between tho New York street Arab and the Sixth avenue coiner f statue." Ordinarily, he is ragged and dirtv. On Sunday, however, ho is ar rayed in short black sack coat, old fashioned ''spring bottom 1 ' trousers that cover three-quarters of his high heeled boots, a felt hat with a sugar-loaf crown, and a necktie so lurid that it would light np the Harlem tunnel. His fuco is iren erally meagre, sallow and unwholesome. His shock of long hair shines with nn odorous imitation of Macassar. He walks with the Bowery swagger, and usually hand in hand with the female of his specie. She is coarse, loud tongued, gypsy-faced, in cheap and gaudy dress, a "Pinafore" hat, with a flaming ribbon, set jauntily upon her head. She chews gum with stolid contentment and the rotarv jaw motion of the domestic cow. She rattles off glibly the slang of the street, and, if vexed, sho shows unex pected resources in ...

Me was brought to that city, uiul carried to Providence hospital. He could read, and eagerly pursued every book and paper lie could get hold of. One day lie chanced to get hold of a New York paper, and in purusing it his eye uauglit upon an item concerning his native town. Looking further be found an account of a local opera per formance, in which a Miss Martin took an active part, and he thought to himself t hat she might possibly be a relative of his; so he wrote, and a few days ago he got a letter stating that lie had long been considered dead, and bearing the joyful tidings to the poor old man that ipiite an estate had , been left, and that he was one of the | most direct heirs to it.

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL rAPEHOFCITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, AVaslnngton Ter ritory. A Brakeman at Church. On the road once more, with Lebanon fading away in the distance, the fat passenger drumming idly on tlie window ]>ane, the cross passenger sound asleep, and the tall thin passenger reading "Gen. <!rant's Tour Around the World." and wondering why "Green's August Flower"' should be painted above the doors of a "Buddhist Temple at .Be nares." To me conies the brakeman, and seating himself on the arms of the seat, says : "I went to church yesterday." "Yes?'' I said, with that interesting inflection that asks for more. "And what church do you attend 1" "Which do you guess?" he asked. "Some union mission church," I haz arded. "No," he said, ' I don't like to run on these branch roads very much. 1 don't often go to cuurch, and when I do, I want to run on the main line, where your run is regular, and you go on schedule time and don't hare to wait on connection...

Snow Bound. Were you ever snow bound 1 Di<l you ever look out upon a world of great white drifts rearing their walls upon overy side, and realize that you were as helpless a prisoner as the poor little linnet beating its heart out against the gilded wire of its pretty nun-lighted cage? Did you ever sit for days and weeks staring into the glaring eyes of an only companion until you hovered over the dying embers of your last fuel, and not a beaten track in tho neighbor hood 1 Did you ever feel that gnawing at tho stomach which proclaims the re gency of Prince Starvation, and yet know that between you and a morsel of bread, or even the nearest help, lay a waste as trackless as the ocja», as soli tary as a desert, and as treacherous us quicksand ? Well, if you have not, de spair lias not tugged at your heait strings as i' has at mine, and you can havo no adequate realization of what it is vo be snow bound.

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, APRIL 22, ISSO. The giant powder works near Berke ley, California, blew lip last Friday, killing: It? white men and twenty Chi nese workmen, besides demolishing the buildings of the works. The steamship City of Pckin recently arrived from China in San Francisco with small-pox ob board, and the ves sel remains in quarantine, and will be kept there to prevent the disease from spreading to the city. A frightful hurricane passed over a portion of south-western Missouri on Sunday last, utterly destroying' the town of Marshfield, where JO" persons were wounded and fifty killed. Other towns and the farmers suffered se verely. The last ten days have been noted for severe storms in California, the Roeky Mountains, in the great lake region and on the Atlantic Coast, as well as for a continued wet spell on on this coast, and our people are no worse off than the balance of the na tion in this respect. A "Walla Walla dispatch of Monday says that Sheriff James Tho...

Swift Bullock Dressing. The advertised bullock dressing match between Win. Kerry and Edward Hartin of the St. Louis Beef Canning Com pany, in East St. Louis, as a team against two men from tlio same estub lishment to lie produced, did not come ofT yesterday on account of the illness of one of the challenging team. Messrs. Kerry and Hartin, although disappoint ed at the non-appearance of the contest ing team, determined to maintain their right to tho title of the champions of tlio West by an exhibition against time, their intention being to lower the record of R. Lafferty and J. It. Ferguson, who, on April 19, 1877, at Brighton, Mass., dressed a bullock in four minutes and one and one-half seconds. A number of people, principally butchers from St. Louis and East St. Louis, were in waiting in a small slaughter house near the Richardson pork-packing establish ment, at 4 o'clock, the hour announced for the exhißition. Tlio bullock was to be dressed in the style usual to packing establis...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PATCH OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarko County, Washington Ter ritory. Fussing Children to Death. Opposite is a young woman with a little chikl. An angelic child. This is no common creature, and it would be dilllcult to exaggerate her beauty. She is as delicate atui dainty as a fairy. At tirst one only saw the lovely picture of rosv cheeks, deep blue eyes, made quite angelic by dark laches—the enchanting, laughing mouth, absolutely illuminated by tue sweet baby teeth, and the finish ing touch of a loose yellow curl showing below the vhite cap. Very soon, how ever, ar.y woman notices that the child is not onh becomingly, but very expen sively dressed, and when it becomes manifest that the mother is probably the wife of a mechanic, it occurs to *ne to wonder what would be the emotions of an European mother of this class on seeing a child of hers arrayed in all this lace, embroidery and the softest and snowiest of woolen wraps. At once all eyes were d...

Vlnnle Ream noxie's New Home. Among the iuany handsome residences erected here during the past year, one belonging to Lieutenant Hoxie, District Engineer,lias attracted much admiration. The house is built at the corner of K and Seventeenth streets, one side over looking Farragut Square, an open tri angle, upon which front many fine man sions of resident swells. A rounded tower tills the corner, and over a lower window, a brpnze tablet announces the studio of Vinnie Ream Hoxie, artist. When the bewitching little sculptor married, society wondered whether she would cast away her clay and hieak up her molding sticks, or still cling to her art. It was considered impossible for her to till the two rules of liomekeeper and modeler, but she has triumphantly carried one with the other and merges the two. Her marriage with Lieuten ant Hoxie has oroved a most happy and harmonious union, and her last and greatest work, the statue of Farragut, has just gone from her hands. On Wednesday afternoo...

VAM 1)1 7ER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, APRIL 29, ISSO. A San Fraueiseo paper says for the prist month the passengers who have gone east over the Central Pacific rail road have outnumbered tlie arrivals. 1 During January, February, and March the coast gained only 287 in population by this means. The Democrats of New York State held two conventions ut Syracuse on the 20th of April. One was a Tilden convention, and the other a Tammany or anti-Tilden convention. Each se lected delegates to the National Dem ocratic Convention, and each vowed war against each other to the end — which means that if Tilden or a Tilden man is nominated for president enough democrats will vote against him to de feat him, as was done in last hill's . election. The old quarrel will not die j out, and the republicans will rake in the proceeds. Charles DeYoung, the principal ed itor and proprietor of the San Fran cisco Chronicle was on Friday last as sassinated. The following "Associated Press" dispatch of Friday nig...

UIK LIMITATIONS.

Mother. There is one being in this world that can atl'ord comfort in the heaviest sor row and soften the most rigorous trials of onr life. We call this being mother. God gave her to us to sweeten with her kisser, of love the bitter cup that is often pressed to our lips. He sent her to our cradle with the wing.i of affection to liido from our view the dark future into which we are to be hurried to contend with death. He appointed her to fold our hands in the first prayer, and made lier smile the dawn of infinitude of our hopes. To us she is the incarnatiou of goodness, virtue and mercy, and in the liour of temptation we may hear her tender voice pleading to our soul.! Whenever wo feel a generous emotion, the desire to dry a human tear, to help the unfortunate, to break our bread with the hungry and to perform any noble act for our fellow-beings, we are often unconsciously impelled by the subtle power of the mother's influence, for it is she who fashions our charaoter and, stamps upon...
