VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AN D COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. Forms Made BsautifuL "Some ladies ara terribly irregular and crooked in their shapes, and it is ray bussness to straighten ttiem out and make them look as though they had good figures," said an elderly lady to a repot ter who had called at her cot set manufactory to learn something of her art. "I doubt," she continued, "whether anybody else than the doctors and the corset makers—and, perhaps, 1 might even leave out most of the doctors —has any idea of the extent to which curva ture of the spine prevails. Well, if a woman has a backbone that is very eccentric, and a pair of shoulders that seem to have been borrowed from ill matched people, she cannot be expected to advertise the unfortunate fact. Siie comes to me, and 1 turn her out as straight and beautifully molded as Di ana. Where she has protuberant points that mar the general symmetry of her outlines, 1 repress tlieiu as fa...

THB POET AND 818 SOKUfI. Ah the birds come in the Spring, We know not from wtiere; As the stara come at evenuig From ikpth9 of the air; As the rain conies from the cloud, Ami the brook from the ground; As suddenly, low or loud, Out of silence a sound; As the irrtpea come to the vine, The fruit to the tree; As the wind comes to the pine. And the tide to the sea; As come the white sails of ships O'er the ocean's verge; A" conies the smile to the lips; The foam to the surge; So 1 ome to the Poet his'aoag*, All hither ward blown From the mist} land, that belongs To the vast C'nknowu. His, and not his, are the lata lie sings—and their fame is bis, and not his-and the praise Aiul the pride of a name. For voices pursue him by day, And haunt him by night.

John Williams, a merchant at Rut ledge, (ia., mi ml a desperado. The fel low entered the store in a furious pas sion, held out the summons in one haiul, clutched a long knife in the other, and said: "Williams, have you sued me?" Williams knew that an immedi ate "yes" would make him sure of a stab. "Lft me get my spectacles so that .1 can read the paper," he said. lie went behind the counter and came back, not with the glasses, but with an axe across his shoulder. "Yes" he said "1 have sued you." "All right," re marked the deperado, "1 guess I'll pay the bill." It is wonderful what fools boys are. A charming widow of our city owns a idee boy, and a man from St. Paid wants to be appointed deputy father to the lad. It was only last Sunday that, while the St. Paul man was strolling down Chestnut street with the lad, he asked: "Bub does your mamma bang her hairt" and that fool boy answered: "Oh no; but you ought to have seen her bang dad's head. Guess the min ister didn't know everything...

European Aristocracy. The feeling which gives rise at home in British circles to contempt of those of a different social stratum is apt to be intensified when directed toward for eigners. A young lady of my acquaint ance, bearing a family name well known in the English aristocracy, while sitting at a table d'hote dinner in Switzerland, next to a party of English tourists, heard one of the ladies, who had read her name on the hotel register, referring to herself, ask her companion, "Is the Honorable Miss of London V' "No," was the reply, in a pointedly contemptuous tone, "she's only an Amer ican," knowing and intending that her remark would be overheard by the lady herself. To give greater sting to the gratuitous impertinence, another added: "You know no American goes in good society in London.'' Comment is un necessary on this species of cultivated vulgarity in high life, which is tirst and worthy cousin to the women-beating of the lower classes. But how is it with ourselves ? Briti...

Bismark Meets His Match. Prince \J is mark made one huge mis take in his calculations. He believed he had reduced France to the rank o f a second rate power, at least, during his lifetime. *This opinion was shared to some extent by the rest of the world. But in Germany the sudden collapse of France was believed to be due in a large degree to internal corruption, and many doubted whether she would ever be a great power again. Bismark certainly pursuaded himself that the enormous in denmity which ho had imposed had so crippled France, that he need not trouble himself about her for the remainder of his life. For years to come the < rernian troor.s would be living, as he thought, 011 her soil without expense to the father land; and as there was 110 danger to be apprehended from any other quarter, it might be possible to relieve ill some de gree, by a reduction of armaments, the .strain and drain upon the energies and resources of the Geraan people!

VANCOUYEK I MIEPENDENT. THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, IBSO. A portion of the Bender family, who made themselves so notorious in 1573 by murders committed in South-eastern Kansas, have boon captured in Ne braska, all expected to be soon taken. They will be sent to Kansas for trial. \ Business has revived to that extent in Chicago that a great scarcity of la borers prevails, and though wages are high they cannot get enough men to put up their buildings.

When you took a second look fit liim you could see a sort of grimness about him which convinced you that whatever he undertook to do he would accomplish or break his back in the attempt. About noon yesterday, when the rain fell fast, he appeared tit Woodward avenue under an old umbrella worth about the price of its ribs. At the opera house he placed his old rain-shedder in the doer way and took position in another not far away. In about two minutes along came a citizen with his left eye watching for iust such a chance, and pounced 011 that umbrella with a chuckle of the deepest satisfaction. He didn't wait around there for the owner to appear, and he didn't care a copper whether it belonged to a Sister of Charity or an over-crown bondholder. As he started off, rejoicing over his good luck, the grim man followed. The umbrella hooker had a walk of about...

Wanted—A Reversible Fat Man. There should be a law in this country to keep fat men out in the woods during the Summer. If it wasn't for fat men on the streets, on the cars, in halls and other public places, lean folks would never feel the heat half as much as tKey do. They are unabridged thermometers. Let two lean men make up to go fishing and along comes a fat man with his face as red as a beet, the sweat trickling down his back, and his collar looking like a wilted cabbage leaf, and he begins to tell how infernal hot it is and what danger there is of sunstroke, and how he wishes ho was an iceberg, and in two minutes he knocks the fishing business ia the head One fat man at a church festival will do more injury than a thunder storm. In the first place, he tries to discourage the committee from holding the festi val. When lie can't do that he goes and tries to shut out all the air by standing in the door.

A Woman and a Cow. It is now over one hundred years since an American philosopher pro pounded the query: "Why is a woman afraid of a cow ?" And yet no one has ever succeeded in giving a satisfactory answer; There is once in awhile awo ■wian who doesn't" seem to have the slightest fear, even when passing a cow with 0110 horn twisted out of place ; but follow that wouftin home, you will find that sho kicks the dog, cuffi the cliil- , dren, jaws her husband and knows how to sharpen a butcher knife and use an ax. Tho real woman has a mortal ter ror of cows, and the real cow seems to iiavo an antipathy for her. Friday forenoon a lady was walking down Cass avenue, when sho suddenly caiuo upon a cow. The animal was feeding on the other side of the street, and the boy sent out to watch her sat tinder a shade tree and played a mouth organ. The lady halted. The cow looked up. " Lost anything, ma am ! asked the boy, as he removed tho music from his mouth. " I—l'm afraid of that cow she re plie...

VANCOU VE R INDEPHN DKNT. THURSDAY, AUGUST 12, ISSO. An election was held in Alabama last week, and it is now announced that the State went democratic by 75,- 000 majority. In 1868, when the ne groes were allowed to vote, the entire democratic vote of the State was only 72,055, and in 1872 the total demo cratic vote was 79,444. The question arises with thinking men, where did they get a majority this year that is equal U> their entire vote of ten years ago! Was there a fail election in which the negroes were allowed to vote! When we remember that the negro vote ten years ago made the State republican by ten to twenty thousand majority the conclusion cannot be avoided that the negro vote has been utterly wiped out, and Alabama elections are no longer free and fair. Weaver, the Greenbackers candidate for president, went down to Alabama to carry that state for his party. General Weaver, on his way back from the canvass of Alabama, said to the editor of the Wheeling (West Va.) Intell...

A I-ii'»t-C'luMM Munke filory. Thomas Bedford, who lives near Baltimore, relates a first-class snake story, wherein a water snake fifteen inches long, which was found imbed ded in a cake of kxj gathered perhaps eighteen months ago, was restored to life on Thursday when exposed to the sun. The ice was taken from the ice house on the place, and the snake was seen in the center of a large block. It was cut out with a pick and was stiff as a bone. When exposed to the sun for some minutes, however, it began to wriggle, and after a time started off for the grass. It was cap tured and placed alive in a larye glass bottle, and will be shown to the incredulous.—Phi/adeljihia Times. The Walla Walla Watchman says: "Mr. D.
