A Friendly Game of Checkers, —— "Now, my dear," said Mr. Spoopen- ( dyke, as he drew on his slippers and set-1 tied himself for the evening. "If you will get the checker-board, I'll play you a game—you're learning so japidly that J it's really a pleasure to try quits with you." Mrs. Spoopendyke giggled with de light, kissed her husband on the top of | the Lead and fluttered away to find the 1 board and checkers. "Which shall I take, the white or the j red men ?" sl:e asked, as she plumped j down in a rocker about a foot and a half ' lower than his easy ,chair, and arranged i the apparatus at an angle of fifty de- J grees. "I think you misapprehended my sug- j goscion,'' retorted Mr. Spoopendyke. "I! didn't propose to go sliding down hill at j this season. My idea was a game of checkers, and if you think those men are 1 going to stand around on a board tipped j up on one end, and wait to be lr.oved, j you're not thoroughly acquainted with | their habits.

Fate, or What? No historian of the war will ever write of companies or battalions, and the strange fate which followed a com pany of infantry attached to a regiment from Michigan need not he looked for in history, although it would make an in teresting page in any history. The company was mustered into ser vice 100 strong, and a better lot of men nevor took the oath of allegiance to Uncle Sam. Before leaving the State three men died. On the trip from De troit to Washington two were hilled bv the cars. In marching along the stree.s of the capital another fell dead. In going into camp another was accident ally shot through the heart. Inside of three weeks there were seven deaths in this company, and not even a case of sickness in any other. The regiment was in camp near Washington for four weeks, and two men died out of this c ompany, a third was drowned, and the fourth was shot dead in a street brawl. This made eleven men, uid not another company lost a man. In the tirst skirmish the...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4. 1880. THE KI,i:«TIO\N. The result of the election for Presi dent and members of Congress will lie satisfactory to the people generally. With General Giirllelil at the head of the nation, and Congress republican again, the affairs of the country will go on without disturbance, and the era of prosperity will continue "with out doubt. The triumph of the repub lican party is great enough to bp ad mitted without any cries of fraud, and without resort to congressional action or an electoral commission. Garfield has 213 electoral votes, to 156 for Han cock, which will settle the contest without any quibbles. The solid south has been met by an almost solid north, of which it is possible that Hancock has carried California, Nevada and New Jersey. In Washington Territory Hon. T. H. Brents is re-elected by not less than 1,000 majority, and the balance of the Territorial ticket also. In the second district X. H. Bloomtield is re elected Prosecuting A...

Kate's Adventure. 1 am Kate. Ot course, I can tell you my own ad ventures a great deal better t an any one can tell them for me. That stands to nature. I'm not a practical writer, and [ don't know how to produce what the fashionable authors call ''grand pen effects," but I believe I can make ;ou understand how it was, and that is all that is necessary. Leeman had sprained his ankle— that's my brother—and he could rot go to town with the load of russet apples that was already piled into barrels and stood waiting under the big shed. "It's too bad," said hp. "Those rus set apples are worth a deal at this time of the year—and we shall miss the mar ket day." "Can't you ask neighbor Mutton to take them J' said my mother.

VANCOUVER INDEPEN I)EXT. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1880. The question of the division of Idaho by severing the northern counties is now being agitated strongly. The lat ter [Kirtiou of the Territory is almost a unit in favor of annexation to Wash ington. Bmall-pox has broken out violently in San Francisco, the cases discovered being quite numerous, and the eiti aensare somewhat alarmed over the situation. Precautionary measures have been taken to prevent a general spread of the disease. Two years ago the total vote cast in Walla Walla county was 1226. This year the vote of Walla AValla city alone is 1322, or nearly 100 more than the total in the county two years ago.

The county seat ot Pierce county is to be removed from Steilacoom to New Tacouia, which matter was de cided at the last election by a very large majority in the county in favor of Taeoma.

Singular c ustom. There are no wedding ceremonies among the Esquimaux and hardly any thing like sentiment is known. The re lation ot man and wife is purely a mat ter of convenience. The woman re quires food and the man needs some one to make his clothing and to take charge of his dwelling while he is huuting. Marriages are usually contracted while the interested parties are children. The father of the boy selects a little girl who is to be bis daughter-in-law and pays her father something. Perhaps it it a snow-knife or a sled or a dog, or now that many oi them are armed with tirelocks the price paid may be a hand ful of powder or a dozen percussion caps. The children are then affianced, and when arrived at a proper age they live together. The wife then has her face tattooed with lampblack and is regarded as fl matroh in society. The method of tattooing is to pass a needle under the skin, and as soon as it is withdrawn its course is followed by a thin piece of pine stick dipped in oi...

Some Turkish Intrigues. Perhaps the most striking fact to a stranger is the little interest Turkish women seem to inspire among the gal lant population of Constantinople. But such strangers are perhaps unaware of j the danger of a word or even a look; a » ' y '• e prolonged gaz? lato the carriage ot a grande dame Turque may provoke the ire of an attendant eunuch, ami cause liini to lay about right and left the lieavy wiiip with which he is often pro vided; but the greatest danger lies in \ tha treacherous encouragement of the | grande dame herself. Some years ago a Mr. B , a young Frenchman of this j town, became enamored of one of those j veiled Sunos, whose soft glances seemed j to reveal a reciprocal pasaion. Day af- ! ter day he awaited her carriage at a j corner of t'ae principale thoroughfare, and day after day the bewitching eyes drew him caressingly to his doom. Still no words were exchanged. Mr. B became more an! more infatuated, and, in spite of the warning of his friends,...

Sand in Sugar. 1 had read that sugar refiners used bullocks blood to clarify the liquor, and in my simplicity asked my friend where was the bullocks' blood, lie laughed very heartily at my ignorance, and told me there had not been such a thing used in Greenock since he had known anything about the trade, now over 30 years. What struck me most was the sand and mud that my friend showed me had been taken out of the raw ma terial when I saw it filtered; and I tha: day registered a vow that I would never again be tempted to buy "real raw sugai ' for domestic use. 1 shudder as I think of the quantity of mud I must have eaten in my time, and teel annoyed at having been deluded into paying a penny a pound more for the real raw sugar than I could have bought the pare refined article for. 1 told my friend what was passing through my mind, at which he again said: " Every one that comes t...

Her Reward. "O, Helen ! boarders !" exclaimed Josie Marsh, 'looking both indignant and ditftresssd. " I did hope we should never come to that," said Fanny in an injured tone. "And to think that father was once the richest man in Barville," almost sobbed Louisa. "I know it is very hard, girls,' said Helen Marsh, as she carefully darned a rent in a pillow case, "but it must be done, and we might as well face the fact first as last. We are in .sore need of money, you will all admit; and the only way we can make it is by taking boarders. We have four unoccupied rooms in this house, and we ought to Lave made something out of theiu long ago." "It does seem such a degradation, though, for v.s to take boarders," meaned Fanny. "And, of coure, Helen would think it improper to take iu any one else," said Josie. • "If by 'nice' you mean young gentle men, -Josie, you uiay be sure I will think it decidedly improper." "And imagine waiting on stuffy old women and catering to their whims," said Loui...
