VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Faneonvtr, Clarke Conuty, Washington Ter ritory. Some Raven Stories. A few years ago a gentleman, near Chapel-le-Frith, in Derbyshire, took a young raven from its nest, anil kept it in an outbuilding for some months ; its •wings were then clipped and it was al lowed to go at large. It soon became well known for a mile around, regularly visiting every farm-house within that distance whenever a pig was killed, when it was always rewarded with some tit-bits. After the death of its owner the raven was given to a surgeon, resi dent in Stockport, Cheshire, who kept it chained by the leg for about twelve months; he then gave it its liberty, and as before it wandered about near home, but rot with the same success, for its thigh was one day broken by some idle, thoughtless boys, who threw stones at it. The fracture was reduced, the raven recovered, and then again took to ram bling about for a few weeks, when it disappeared altogether, ...

Outbursts of Heat in the Sun. Lately many scientific journals have contained accounts of the observation of new and suspected variable stars. The more carefullv we study the stars the more evident it becomes to us that a large proportion of them undergo and exlrtjbic changes of light with a certain degree of regularity. Very few stars change their brilliancy so quickly as Al gol, tho "winking demon." in Medusa's Head, but there are many that wax and wane in a remarkable manner. This subject becomes especially inter esting, remarks a writer in the New York Sun, when we consider the fact that reasons have been shown why our own sun may be regarded as a variable star. Prof. Proctor, in his essay on the "End of Many Worlds," suggests that periodical outbursts of heat in the sun may account for the curious traditions running alike through the Indian, Egyp tian, Chinese and Greek mythologies, that the eath at certain epochs under goes destruction and renovation by lire. On such a supposit...

Who Invented the Steam Engine ? To what man and to what nation is the world indebted for the invention of the locomotive engine ? The Philadel phia North American claims that honor for the little known name of Oliver Evans of that city, and courteously cor rects the Times for a recent incidental allusion to the invention as having its origin in England, and be in,' only after wards brought to higher perfection in the United States than it has elsewhere reached. We have not at hand that number of the North American, printed in 1878, in which Evans' claims are set forth at length, but upon investigation of other authorities it appears clear that sufficient credit has not been given to this candidate for Stevenson's, Trevith ick's and Vivian s honors. Thus it is beyond a ouestion that so early as 1787 he obtained a patent from Maryland for steam carriages on common roads, and thereafter developed his idea until his Oruktor Amphibolos was complete. Kven now it is difficult to see what h...

The Powers of a Hymn. In one of the hospitals of Edinburgh lay a wounded Scotch soldier. The sur geons had done all they could for hiin. He had been told that he must die. He had a contempt for death and prided himself on his fearlessness in facing it. A rough and wicked life, with none but evil associates, had blunted his sen sibilities, and made profanity and scorn his second nature. To hear him speak, one would have thought he had no piously-nurtured childhood to remem ber, and that he had never looked upon religion but to despise it. But it was not so. A noble and gentle-hearted man came to see the dyint; soldier. He addressed him with kind inquiries, talked to him tenderlv of the life beyond death, and offered spiritual counsel. But the sick man paid no attention or respect. He bluntly told him that he did not want any religious conversation. " You will let me pray with you, will you not 1" said the pious gentleman at length. " No; 1 know how to die without the help of religion...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County. Washington Ter ritory. An Independent Press. Mr. Smith used to live in n small town in the interior of Texas which we will call Smithville, but he 4 moved to Galveston a few years ago and is now a resident of this city. He has kept him self well posted, however, as to affairs in his former home by subscribing to the Smithville Torpedo, the local paper, which is edited with signal ability bv Colonel Bangs. A few days ago Smith happened to be at the railroad depot when the train came in, and whom should he see among the passengers but Col. Bangs, the editor of the Torpedo. Of course Smith was glad to see the edi tor of the Torpedo, and Bangs was glad to see a regular subscriber like Smith. They greeted each other •warmly, and after having taken a few drinks sat down quietly to talk over affairs in Smithville. "You get the Torpedo regularly, 1 suppose i" said Bangs. •'Yes, it comes to hand regularly ever...

ANovki, Fish-hook. Mr. Snyder, of Seattle, while trolling forsnlmon :i few days ago. in that harbor, met with a singular mi*luy>. Ho had placed his hand in the water, alongside the boat when he suddenly experienced a painful sensation in that member. Upon drawing liis hand back he found that a large silver salmon hud caught hold his thumb, the salmon refusing to let go until after being hauled into the boat. His thumb was badly lacer ated. There was lately a wedding in Wal lowa, Ogn., bin the parties sent out no invitations. The "boys" took the matter in their own hands and played the joke of sending nice cards of invi tation nil around, and the folks were much astonished at having a great many guests, but they took the joke kindly and treated them as well as they could. Gen Hancock promises that he will defend the country against the demo cratic party. Since actual security against these contingencies may be had through the republican party, it would seem unnecessary to take ris...

VAlfCOmn INDEPENDENT. OTTICXAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. Australian Women Our hostess is a specimen of the rare womanly beauty vhich lifens into such perfe:tion beneath theaident Australian sun. Indeed, the traveler cannot fail to j be struck with the general appearance of the Australian women. I think they possess greater charms of face and figure, and a more delicate, refined style of beauty, as a rule, than their Northern sisters. The Australian-born woman is generally tall, well-proportioned, agile, lithe of limb, and has her features cut in a classic mold of rather a Grecian or aristocratic type. In plain words, I think Australian women are more gen erally graceful in figure, than English women. The climate has doubtless much to do with this, but beauty is not by any means confined to the wealthier «.!asses. The free out-of-door life, the abundant fare, the freedom from many kinds of conventionality which handi cap the English gir...

Newell, the newly appointed Governor of Washington Territory, arrived in Port land on Tues day, and is now at Olynipia, having assumed the duties of his olflco. On Tuesday evening lie attended a meet ing of the Garfield & Arthur club, and made one of the finest political speeches of the campaign in Oregon. Lieut. Symons when up the Skagit river saw many miners, and learned much about the country. Most of the miners have left in disgust, abandon ing their claims, and there is but one paying claim at the present time in the whole Skagit region. Some min ers still have hopes of striking good pay ground there on a new creek. Pilot Doig was finally discharged in San Francisco on a writ of habeas cor pus, and will not be sent to Oregon for trial, getting out of it on some techni cality in the law proceedings.

Women's Pockets. One of those moat popular journals which are the organs of feminine cloth ing has recently begun to agitate with much earneßtneta and eloquence in be half of. the rights of women to have and enjoy pockets—exclusive of over coat pockets —woman has either one solitary pocket or none at all. The withholding of pockets from women has -undoubtedly had its origin in the tact that among girls of tender years there lias been no apparent desire for pockets. The boy is eminently a string consuming auimal. In his sports and occupation he has a constant need of strings, and hence he is properly provided with a pocket in which to carry kite strings, shoe strings, top strings and general strings. The girl never uses a string in any form, and therefore does not feel the need of a pocket. As the boy grows to be a man his pockets increase aud expand *with constant use, so that he is finally able to use ten or fifteen all at once. The girl, on the other hand, growing up without pocke...
