IN THE WI.OAMISG. Framed by the French window in which she stood, Helen Hanson glanced within, and then without. Behind her was the dimlv-lighted drawing-room, in its pretty summer dress; and at its fur thest end, a man, seated at a piano, and lightly running his Angers over the keys. Before her, the green, sloping lawn, on which the cool, entrancing moonlight played bo-peep with light and shadow. Perhaps because her gaze turned here —perhaps because it rather touched some übtle cllord of sympathy —she turned her face away from the first picture, and stepped out upon the velvety sward. The moonlight instantly bathed her in a silver light of welcome. Here was something better worthy of its embrace than flower, or tree, or shrub. Lovingly it rested upon the little head, crowned hv its chestnut braids, kissing the azure- j tinted eyes, and shadowing, just for #j fleeting moment, the low, white brow; or. hiding in the exquisite bloom of the fair, rounded cheek, laughed in mockery from t...

Reserve Power. In the great boat race which occurred some years ago on the Thames between tho clubs of Harvard and Oxford, tho boat manned by tho former took the lead almost from the start, and to a super ficial observer seemed likely to win tho race. Put suddenly their stroke, hith erto so impetuous, began to slacken and look distressed. Oxford moved victori ously ahead, and, in spite of the last des perate "spurts" of Harvard, maintained her superiority to the goal and won the race. Tho secret of the victory was found in what Americans are so apt to despiso and neglect—reserved power. At the bar, in the Senate, in the pulpit, in the fields of business, in every sphere of human activity, he only organizes victory and commands success, behind whose van anil corps of battle is heard the steady tramp of tho army of tho re serve. Wo must be prepared for the unexpected crisis and incredible emer gencies. Let 11s consider some of tiie reasons why we should collect and train the reserved ...

Vancouver Independent. Official Papbb of City and County. Vancouver. Clarke County, Washington Territory. POKER. BY MATTHEW ARNOLD. "To draw or not to draw, that is the question, Whether 'tis safer in the player to take The awful risk of skinning for a straight, Or. standing pat, to raise Vm all the limit, And thus, by bluffing, get it. To draw—to skin; Xo more —and by that skin to get a full, Or two pairs, or the fattest bouncing kiugs That luck is heir to—'tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished. To draw —to skin: To skin! perchance to burst—eye, there s the rub! For in the draw of thre* what cards may come When we have shuttled oil 'he uncertain pack, Must give us pause. There's the respect Which makes calamity of a bob-tail flush, For who would bear the overwhelming blind, The reckless straddle, the wait on the edge, The insolence of pat hands, and the lifts That patient merit of the blufier takes, When he himself might be much better off By simply passing? What would trays up-...

ULONDIS'S ESCAF.VHE. BY GEOItOE 11ENTON. The gay season at the numerous water ing places along the sea -hore had been ushered in by the usual tide of pleasure- | seekers and invalids who cannot rest un der July's fiery rays in the stilled atmos- , phcre of the closely-built cities. Even the mania spread through the rural re gions, and many a lad and lassie sighed because they did not happen to be among those whom the daily trains carried through tlio green meadows to old ocean's breezes. Among the latter may we reckon Blon din Hale, the eldest son of a wealthy farmer living some miles from the city of Brotherly Love. Blondin had always been noted for his restless disposition and a desire to rove. However, having been reared by careful parents who al ways impressed upon his mind from his earliest recollection, the precept, "Obey vou parents," he had been restrained from openly declaring his desire to liar take of the opportunities of the world, by abruptly leaving. Ho had often throw...

Logging l»y mil is pnivvd to be a success nt Oiyuipia. lion. Turner is having all he can do to supply the logs as fast as they can be brought to the bay. There are three cars now in use which carry about 10,000 feet at a load, or from 3,000 to 4,5(H) each. Three trips per day are now made, and aver age about 30,000 per day. All has gone smoothly, without accident of any kind, since the new cars arrived from California. These cars cost about $555 each, and are of a pattern in use in that state, and proven well adapted for the purpose. Mr. Turner and the railroad folks are in gooil spirits over the success of what has hitherto been an experiment but what is now shown to be one of the practical industries of the country.—Olympia Courier.

THE WELL'S SECRET. BY JOHN B O'RKILLY. I knew it ill! my boyhood; iu u lonesome valley meadow, Like a dryad's mirror hidden by the wood s dim -ches near; lis eye tin d buck the sunshine, and grew dark and sad with shadow; And 1 loved its truthful depths where every jiebble lay so clear. I scooped my hand and drunk it, and watched the eonsate quiver Of the rippling rings of silver as the drops of chrvstal fell; I pressed the richer grasses from its little trick ling river, Till at last 1 knew as friends know, every se cret oi the well. But one day I stood beside it, on a sudden, unex pected, When the sun had crossed the valley and a shadow hid the place; And i looked in the dark water—saw my pallid check reflected — And beside it, looking upward, met an evil reptile face. Looking upward, furtive, startled at the silent, swill intrusion; Then it darted toward the grasses and 1 saw not where it tied; But I knew its eves were on me, and the old time sweet illusion Of the pure and perfec...

PAKSI'S BIRTHDAY. That isn't her real name, oh, no ! but we call her so. She has such large, lus trous eye 9, and when she opens them wide it makes you think of those great, beautiful pansies that look at you with so much intelligence. We have a bed of them out in the garden, and, though Pansy dearly loved the rest of the gar den flowers, yet she lingers longest by the side of these. She will talk to them and pat them lovingly with her little hand, and when they turn their almost human faces toward her, and look at her with their pleading eyes, she says : "Yes, my dear little darlings, sister will give you' some water," and away she goes for her little watering-pot." But our little Pansy was to have a "real truly birthday" all her own. She had had these before, but the first two happened when she was so much of a baby that she had no remembrance of them; and the next one came when she was sick, so sick that we feared our dar ling's next birthday would be in Heaven among the angels.'...

VANCOUVEH INDEPEX DENT. THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 1881." There was a great thaw in the upper country last week, and great waters, but the weather suddenly turned cold, and now the snow is as deep again as ever, stock suffering, the river closing up, and the entire population will sit and .shiver until the next Chinook wind comes to liberate them from the grip of Jack Frost. The people of Puget Sound are greatly exercised this week by the failure of the steamship Dakota to put in an appearance, yesterday being four days over due. A steamer that left San Francisco two days after lias arrived, reporting fair weather, but saw nothing of her. There is great anxiety concerning her safety. "Ex-Gov. Woods in an address re cently made at Reno, Xev., stated positively that the narrow guage rail road would have its terminal point at the Columbia." Whereupon the St- Helens' paper dubbs it "'the Reno & St. Helens R. R.;" thereupon the torian accuses St. Helens of stealing the Astoria enterprise:...

Vancouver Independent. i .i Official Pafbb or Crrr aho Corsrv. Vancouver. Clarke County, Washington I Territory. TIIE QUAKER HETEITH E We were five passengers in all —two ladies on the back seat, and a middle aged gentleman and a Quaker on the middle, and myself in the front. The two ladies might have been mother (ind daughter, aunt and niece, governess and charge, or ulight have sustained any other relationship which make it proper for two ladies to travel together unat tended. The middle-aged gentleman was sprightly and talkative. He soon struck up an acquaintance with the ladies, toward whom, in his zeal to do, ho rather overdid the agreeable—bowing, and smiling, and chatting over his shoulder in a way painfully suggestive, at his time of life, of a "crick" in the tick. He was evidently a gay Lothario, i The Quaker wore the uniform of his sect, and confined his speech, as many a parliamentarian would save his credit by doing, to simply "yeas" and "nays."

Misnomer-. The word misnomer is defined by Wor cester as "a wrong name." It is sur prising to notice how many of tho ob jects and events familiar to us all are thus miscalled. Dr. £. Cobham Brewer, in his invaluable "Dictionary of Phrase and Fable," devotes a considerable space to the consideration of this subject, and jie is not the only distinguished writer %ho has considered it worthy of his at tention. A few of the most common er rors aro these: Irish stew is a dish never seen in Ire land. Turkeys do not come from Turkey, but from North America, through Spain or India. The French call them "dindon," i. e. d'lnde or coq d'lnde, a term which is equally incorrect. Turkey rhubarb neither grows in Turkey nor is it exported from Turkey. It grows in the great mountain chain be tween Tartury and Siberia, and is a lius sian monopoly. Turkish baths aro not of Turkish ori gin, nor are they baths, but hot-air rooms or thermae. In tho "Ode to a Mummy" is the query, "Is Pompey's PillaV really...

The United States are feeding and clothing many nations of the world and in payment for these commodities we are tilling our treasuries with gold and depleting those of evere other country. The picture, accompanied by the real facts, is a very clever one to enjoy on our part, and the time is not far distant when the older nations will beg in to acknowledge that the United States is considerable of a coun try after all. The degree of mortality among the Indian population of the various res ervations 011 the Sound is truly alarm ing and out of all proportion, as com pared with the white population. There is scarcely a week or month but we hear of some departure to the happy hunting grounds on the part of our dusky brethren of the forest and stream. Their indifference to the laws of health is of course the cause.— Pugct Sound Mail. The "true inwardness" of De Les -Beps' Panama canal scheme is found in the nineteenth article of the com pact of the association, which provides that ten pe...
