Vancouver Independent. Official Paper of City and County. Vancouver. Clarke County, Washington Territory. A CHI'RCn MOUSE. "I must trust to your instinct," mut tered the traveler, letting the briillo fall upon his horse's neck. "The eyes of an owl would be at fault ou such a night as this. Be quiet, you brute! Do you mean to repay my confidence by break ing my neck ?" The animal had shied so violently as nearly to throw his rider, and stood trembling in every muscle. His master peered through the darkness in the en deavor to make out the cause of his ter ror. He could perceive before him the dim outline of a dismantled ehurch, with its brood.of gravestones clustered about it. Beside the road, so close that he could have touched it with his whip, he discovered an indistinct white object crouching upon one of the graves. Resolved upon knowing what it was, he dismounted and approached it. As he did so, it arose and tied rapidly away. With his curiositv no fully arosed he fol lowed it. ...

1)1 vtTslfliMi Agriculture. Coleman Younger, one of the most ex perienced and successful stock growers on the Pacific coast, contributes to the Press the following 011 the above theme: The great interest of our farmers should be to know what to do and liow to do it, to make their labor and capital give tho largest return. They have • tried wheat and barley raising until many of them have been compelled to mortgage their farms. This single cropping can succeed only in iso lated instances, and then only when the crops are good and prices high. Meat, bread and vegetal >les have to bo pro vided M families, either by raising them or by purchase. Any farmer in any por tion of Pacific Coast can produce meat, bread and vegetables in great abundance for family use; in some sections with but 1 little labor, and in others it will require more, but it can be done, and ought to bo bv every farmer on the coast; and tho sooner this course is adopted will pros-; perity follow. The three articles...

During the l;nt fiscal ycnrthc inter nal revenue office collected the vast sum ot SIL'3,!KS2,(H)O, not a dollar of which was lost by dishonest officials. Since the present commissioner took charge of the bureau four thousand il licit still-* have been suppressed and seven thousand arrests for illicit dis tillation reported. The great moon shiner*' industry in Tennessee, Geor gia and tlte Carolina* has been in a great degree destroyed.

Vancouver Independent. Official Pater of City and County. Vancouver. Clarke County, Washington Territory. AT THE GARDES GATE. Janet Dudley stood at the garden gate that lovely evening in September, gaz ing up the road with anxious eyes. The faint light of the rising moon lay like a blessing on the golden head, and the air, filled with the fragrance of niw-mown hay, caressingly touched her fair young face. Never prettier maid awaited lover. And yet John Hallam's step was slow and his face clouded as he emerged from the shadow of the trees and came to ward her. Janet opened the gate and stepped out to meet him. "Well, John?" she said, and her voice trembled ever sc little. The young man took her tiny hands in his, and looked down upon her—she was a wee thing—with almost a frown upon his brow: "Uncle Roger is as obstinate as a mule," he said. "I lmve just come from a most wearisome interview with him. He insists that I shall either tako lip my drudgery again at Mink A Otter's or some o...

Love on the Illgh Seas. "Now," % said the captain, "wo shan't sec any more land for a week, and you young ladies'll liavo nothing to do but let some of these young fellows fall in lovo with you." "Fall ill love," cried Hetty, her tip tilted nose curling with incredulity and disgust. "Who could fall in love at sea, I'd like to know?" "Who could?" asked tlio captain, in innocent surprise. "Why, everybody does. Why not?" Hetty smiled in evident unbelief, but glanced futively across the deck toward the handsome voung officer whore ho leans on the rail blowing rings of smoke into the deep blue sky. Mischievous Deb and the quick sighted captain defect both, and laugh unmerci fully. Hefty blushes, and the first officer uncompromisingly turns his buck and a' deaf ear to the captain's guffaws. i It is evening on shipboard, dinner is | over, the day's work is done, and all are I assembled on deck.

A Folly of the Ago. Hunting the North Pole has boon a sort of mania with scientifically disposed persons for ft good many years, and especially so ever since Sir John Franklin got ice bound and took up his permanent abode some where up in the hyperborean re gions, which means beyond where the North wind comes front. Vast sums of money have been expended and several lives lost in the endeavor to find the "Northwest passage,' though no one seems to be able to give any reasons tor believing there is such u passage, and certainly no one has shown that if there is, its discovery would be of the smallest possible benefit to mankind. The idea of finding a route practicable for navigation north of the Ameri can continent, is surely one of the greatest absurdity, as such a passage would be nearly continuously ob structed by ice, and at all times would be attended with great danger to all who attempted to navigate it. The latest disappearance in the arc tic region, that of the Jeannette, unde...

The ledge is situated on Johnson's mountain, and inspires great confi dence among experts who have seen specimens of the ore. The ledge has been traced four miles, and twelve claims of 1")00 feet each, have already been taken. One ton of the ore has been sent to S:\n Francisco to he tested. It is the opinion of the discoverers that it is t\ ' soil roe from where all the gold has come, that has been found in bars, creeks, jrulehes, benches on both sides of the Coast range of mountains on the west in Coos and Curry, and on the east in Coos and Douglas counties. One nuirget of the value of SH3O has been taken out of the ledge. Claims have been staked ott' along the for seven or eight miles, and the dis covery is creating a great excitement.

"Wearing his eyes and health ' out writing sermons that nol.ody will ' take the trouble to listen to. For my ' part," pulling out the bows with a (lis- j contented air, "I don't see the least use i in his toiling and moiling over a new I sermon every Christmas, when he might just as well preaeli the same one every j year, anil nobody be any the wiser. Yes; in a minute!'" as she heard her brother's voice in the hall: and when, answer ugl his summons. she looked into his peace-1 ful. thouL,! : illuminated face, a flush of momentary shame overspread her own at the remembrance of those angry ques tionings a moment before.

Old Mil!. Prof. Huxley, who has rendered sc many valuable services to the cause ol science, has just added a new claim tu the recognition of the world by lending the weight of his authority to the opin ion that I>'J men out of 100 become sim ply obstructives after they reach the ttgi of' 09, and speaking for his own domain of science he is reported to have ex pressed the wish that any man who had taken any part in science might lie strangled as soon as he had reached that age. At first this sounds like an extreme opinion, and its nature wholly at variance with that dispassionate modera tion which marks the true philosopher. Persons who have not been excited by the search for molecules and protoplasm will suggest that old scientists and all other obstructives might be retired on pensions, with strict orders to prevent them from publishing any of their re searches. Superficial readers will ob ject that even if the majority of sexagen arians are obstructions,and consequently, detrim...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JANUARY tt, 1881. The wild Irishman of Lewis I'iver has written lis a letter backing up the land leaguers of Ireland, but for want of space we cannot publish it. The Mexican government has re cently granted concessions to Cnpt. Ends for the construction of his ship railroad across the isthmus of Teliaun tepec, and his friends are now very enthusiastic over the prospects of the gigantic project. The last of the Northern Pacific sur veying parties of lsso, that engaged in a survey of the newly discovered Sheets pass, was driven out of the mountains by deep snows about the middle of last month. Work cannot be resumed by the surveying parties before April or May. England has another war on her hands, the Dutch settlers_of the Trans vaal having declared their independ ence of Kngland, and commenced to fight the English troops occupying the country. England's possessions are so vast that it is a difficult matter to be at peace with all the world at once. —...

Ol'H LAST CIIKISTXAS. A lillil.'s STOKY. IIY Cl. UK I!. Last winter, when money was so "tight" and times so "hard" that it af fcctcil even "hearts" and "good cheer," we three girls, Lou, Nell and Susie Waters, agreed among ourselves that, we would have no '"tree" and make no holi day presents. We knew of several families, a great deal better oft' than we were, who had given out among their friends that they would "neither give nor receive, this year," so we thought wo i'iigilt as well follow their example. " t's nothing but an old heathenish custom, anyway." said Lou, the eldest of us three, and our walking encyclopedia. "The Romans, you know, gave presents of gold and silver fruits and coins to one another on the lirst day of the new year, and the old Germans used to burn the •yule log abfuit that time of year, and so, when the early Christians took the twenty-fifth day of December on which to cel. brate the birth of our Saviour, they adopted both customs, and in thai way wo get ou...
