Joaquin Miller in Wall Street. I.ast Spring I received a letter from ' the eiitor of the chief London magizine ■' asking me to write hiin an article entit- j led "A Week in Wall Street." I knew nothing whatever of Wall street then. I resolved, however, to oblige my friend. I went into Wall j street at once to get the desired inform- j ation and experience. This was six months ago. I have j got back. I have not yet written a line of that article. But I have material' enough to write a tiook bigger than; Macauiay's History of England. I know all I want to know about Wall street. And if you will pardon the di gression, I niav add that I am getting bald-headed. Finding but little interest in this maelstrom of excitement without raking part. I, under the advice of mv broker, bought a litile Wabash. I bought Wabash because it was the first stock on the list which I could distin guish from the mass of two hundred names. And I came to remember it be cause I had been born on its banks, as it...

Feminine Forces. A girl's mind develops very rapidly, much more rapidly than an average boy's; and when an intelligent girl shows any special ability in one direc- . tion, she improves in that especial direc- j tion so quickly that one is deceived into j thinking she has a genius for it: she herself becomes fired with ambition, wo/ks hard—and many girls can work in a way that would shame some bo*s— builds castles in the air of future fame and greatness; gives up other interests j and hopes for the one ai n, which, alas, ; is so often disappointed ! Nineteen out j of every twenty —might we not say ninetv-nine out of every hundred?—j girls stop when you think they are going to i'o something worth doing, and nev.r ge any further. They have talent, vAich education has brought out, and deceived them into mistaking for genius. There is, however, one very great ad vantage in the present rage for classes of all kinds, and in the facilities loi study in all directions; ic gives many girls an...

The assessor of San Francisco re cently tilcil a supplemental assessment roll, it having come to his knowledge that large amounts of personal prop erty were not returned by the owners. The list as published in the Chroniclc foots up $190,000,000, and is represented by about one hundred persons. Of this enormous sum not listed for taxa tion $70,037,900 is credited to 1 .eland Stanford. Charles Crocker, Mrs. Mark Hopkins and the Central Pacific Kail road Company, ami #'21,000,000 to the bonanza firm of Flood. Maekey and Fair. It is little wonder that taxes are high in the Golden State when six or seven persons own $91,0(H),0W worth of property upon which they pay no taxes.

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPKK OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. Forms Made Beautiful ".Some ladies are terribly irregular an<l crooked in their shapes, and it is inv bussness to straighten them out and make them look as though they had good figures," said an elderly lady to a reporter who hid called at her corset 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 Ims a backbone that is very eccentric, and a pair of shoulders that seem to have been borrowed from ill matchcd people, she cannot be expected to advertise the unfortunate tact. She 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 them as far...

THE POET AND HIS iQKW, As the birds come in the Spring, We know not from where; As tt»e stars come at evening From depths of the air; As the rain comes from the cloud. And the brook from the ground; As suddenly, low or loud, Out of silence a bound; As the erspes come to the vine, * The fruit to the tree; As the wind comes to the pine, And the tide to the sea; As comc the white sails of ships O'er the ocean's verge; Ah conies the smile to the lips; The foam to the surge; So come to the Poet his song®, All h.therward blown From the misty land, that belongs To the vast Unknown. llis, and not his, arc the lajs He Hint's—and their tame Is Ins, and not his-and the praise And the pride of a name.

VANCOU VF.U THUKSDAY, \OViC)•! B!"l! ISSO. The trial uf Thomas at NV'alia Walla for the murder of the Bruiniield family last .spring, has resulted in his eonvie tiou for murder.

The transfer of up river passengers at Celilo is now a thing of the par t, and travelers keep their seats in the cars to Blalock's, a station S3 miles east of Celilo.

A Base Deception. Nothing but our unshakable determi nation to expose fraud in important places induces us to forego our native gallantry sufficiently to relate the par ticulars of the following gloomy catas trophe : It seems that, not content with fraudulent appeals to the sympathies of mankind by means of "palpitators" and false calves, the ladies have recently in troduced a still more insidious delusion —viz., what are known to modistes as patent indiarubber inflatable hips. A voung ladv—who was doubtless driven to this artificial reliancc by stern neces sity, however—recently attended a large dinner party on Van Ness Avenue. Atter the meal the company retired to the library, and the young lady was handed to a seat by the host. Now, in this very chair a small boy of the family had placed a bent pin in readiness for hia French tutor. When the young lady sat down a sound ensued, which caused every person in the room to blush ■with embarrassment. The victim her self remained paralyz...

The doctor was of middle stature, with ruddy face and hands, closely shaven drab hair, and a common-place look. H3 felt quite at his ease, and the following dialogue ensued: " What is your name V " My name is Mr. Brearly." " Your name is not Mister, is it ?'' "Yes it is. Mr. John Brearly is my name."

TWO ELOPKMESTS. In a large, square, old-fashioned house ] —such as our fathers used to build when solidity was more sought after than util ity—lived Philip Manson and his sister Esther. Philip had reached the mature | age of 40, and Esther was close to him. j Still, each had pursued a solitary path- 1 way through iife, seeking no companion- | ship save that of the other till there was ; reason to believe that they would cou tinuo to follow the same course till in | tho fullness of timo they were gathered | into the family tomb -the receptacle of manv generations of the Mansodi family. There was moro reason to think so, since ' thevtook care to commend au unmarried j life", not only by example, but by pre cept. "No," said Philip, when assailed on this subject by a match-making lady; I "marrying may be very good for some people, but I could not bear to have my I habits broken iu upon, and my whole , house turned topsy-turvy by the iutro- i duction of a wife !" j "But by and-by, when y...

In the early morning, when the j peasant goes out to yoke his oxen, and the crow wakes up and the dog stretches j himself and shakes off the dust in which he had slept last night, the old monkey i creeps down the peepui tree, only half j awake, and yawns and looks about him, puts a straw in his mouth, and scratches himself contemplatively. Then one I>v one the whole family come slipping down , the tree trunk, and they all yawn and look about and scratch, lint they are , sleepy and peevish, and the youngsters get cuffed for nothing, and begin to think life dull. Yet the toilet has to be ' performed, and whether they like it or not, the young ones are sternly pulled up one by one, to their mother to under go the process. The scene, though re- ; ...
