Vancouver Independent. Official Pa tee of City and Cooktt. Vancouver. Clarke County, Washington Territory. HERMA, THE UO.N TASIER. It was in the beginning of the year 1859 when the famous Harsburg menage rie came to Bucharest for the first time-. All the town was in a state of great ex citement about the number and rarity of the animals, the beauty of the lions, and above all about the tamer, who perform ed some remarkable feats of strength. Herma Dalstrem was her name; she was a young Swede, beautiful, distinguished, hold and unapproachable. It is true that she was supposed to be the mistress of the owner of the menagerie; but the rich Boyards who lavished homage upon her in order to win her good graces were met only by a cold politeness and a sarcastic haughtiness which drove tliem away. She lived with the Hamburg family at the first hotel in the town, went to the menagerie and returned from it in a car riage. like a lady of high degree, re ceived no visits and was never seen alon...

BEHISI> A PANEL. A wide, white forehead; above, braids knotted with a white aster, pansy-dark eyes under curled black lashes. The lovely woman's face looking out of the oriel windows held Captain Gordon Homers captive. "Come, Captain," called a voice from the water below. He made no response to startle the girl, for she had not seen him. The cool, oval face rested on the slender hand, and she was looking dreamily over the water. "I say. Cap, what keeps you ? What have yon found ?" He could have strangled Low, with his impatient bellowing, for now the fair face started and flushed, and turning, Adelaide Westerly saw the intruder in the garden. Captain Somers stepped forth, but without lub usual grace and ease, and lifted his hat. "I beg your pardon. Could we get some water here ?" "Yes, certainly. Knock at the south door, and my man will give you all you want." She seemed startled out of an habitual serenity, yet her voice had strange soft ness and sweetness. "I—we," continued the...

New Government Tug.— Capt. D. F. Buchanan Ims gone to San Fran cisco under orders from Col. G. 8. Gillespie, to buy or make arrange ments to build a staunch sea going tug for the use of the government in harbor improvements south of the Co lumbia river. Heretofore the engi neers' department lias depended on private tugs, which could oftentimes not be secured when most needed, and important work was consequently de layed. The new tug will be used the conning summer in the improvements of \aquina and the Coquille, and in surveying Columbia river bar. It would appear from the results of the elaborate and exhaustive tests made by Mr. Marsjllion, that the Car bon Hill, (Taeoma), coal, for steam making purposes, has a value 40 pel cent. greater thah that of either Wil keson or Xanaimo, and 90 per cent, greater than that of Seattle coal; while the refuse of the Carbon Hill coal is but a trifle compared to that of any other coal mined on the Pacific coast, and compares favorably with any of...

"BUTTERNUTS." Butternutting in the woods! Lili Thorpe thought she had never known such picturesque delight. The Indian summer was in its glow and prime. The hilltops were wreathed in amber mist; the willowed murmured softly through its willow-fringed shores; the woods, all ritled of their l6afy hon ors. were like cathedral aisles, carpeted with gold,and russet ami crimson layers, and the butternut crop had never been so good up in Wrex's woods. Squirrels, school-boys, picnic parties and tramps all had their pick and choice of the huge brown-jacketed nuts, and yet, with every midnight frost and sun rise gale, the ground was strewn afresh with them, and any adventurous stick, thrown up into the branches, would bring down a shower of new treasures. "But why don't they bring butternuts into market';" cried Lili. Why don't we have them in New York." "Ain't enough of 'em," said Enoch Hawley, as he shoveled them steadily into his father's box wagon. "Besides, they ain't what you'd call a f...

FASHION BMVITIaJi. Mahogany-reil is a fashionable color. Gray rabbit is mnck used as a trim ming fnr. The hair is worn in a severely simple style. The "Restoration" is a popular bonnet shape. Flowers ornament nearly ail full-dress costumes. Yellow laces are more fashionable than white ones. Satin and satin surah are preferred to silk for rich toilets. Rich jet fringes have a cut-jet ball at the end of each strand. Marshal Kiel yc-llow is a favorite color, and it is either trimmed witli jet or pearl passementerie. Black satin de Lyon is preferred to black silk for rich costumes; it is often trimmed with cardinal or Marshal Niel ■atin. Plush bonnets are as popular as ever, and plush still leads in trimming materials, notwithstanding the fact that it is very perishable. Vermicelli lace is a cross between Languedoc and Breton. It has a pointed edge, and the pattern is run in no set way, but in serpentine windings. The "Charlotte Corday" is a new and stylish fichu, made o! a scarf of sil...

V A VCOUVEK IN DEPEN DENT. THURSDAY. MARCH'IO, 1881. Gen. Jaiues A. Garfield was inaugu rated President of the United States i at Washington «n Friday last. Wash- j ington City was crowded with stran- j gers, 50,000 being in tiie city, about 100,000 people were in tlie crowd at the | Capitol building during the inaugura- ! tion ceremonies. The inaugural was j well received, and is commented upon j favorably in almost every instance, j The New York Ilercth/ says of it: The inaugural address of the new president was flowing, comprehensive 1 and graceful. It does not'rank with 1 Lincoln's addresses, but it would i hardly be fair to expect this. Gen. GarlicM addresses himself tothe south with a sternness which Lincoln did not use during the war, and which \ leaves no doubt that he will be a stal- 1 wart president. The president closes , his address with an expression of firm \ desire to do what he can for civil ser vice reform. The New York Tribune says: President Garfield's inaugural a...

Vancouver Independent. Official Papie o» Citt and Countt. Vancouver. Clarke County, Washington Territory. , A SCULPTOR'S LOVE STORIT. The capital of Aujou is preparing to do honor to one of its most illustrious chil dren. The sculptor David is to lie com memorated by a statue, th 7 work of an M. Noel, who obtained the first prize in the competition organized by the town of Angers. Baithelemy Saint-Hilaire lias been deputed to represent the Gov ernment at the inaugural ceremony, and the occasion will probably be seized to put forward a species of ministerial pro gramme. The life of David of Angers forms a fitting subject for republican panegyric, as he suffered persecution and banishment for the good cause. Posthu mous reward has come at last, and on the •pot where the embryo artist solicited the cliaritv of passers-by to take homo a few sous to his mother, the features of the powerful genius as lie developed in after years will serve to remind future generations of Angerins that the...

Taken for a Jockey. Any man who understands billiards and has seen Jacob Shaefer play, knows that he has the most rapid conception of any of the experts; but a stranger, un less an unusually good judge of a keen eye and sharp face, would never pick out Jake, as the boys call him, as a young man likely to handle a wizard's cue. He resembles a cross between a jockey and an overworked hall-boy. While watching the players in the pool tournament the other afternoon, an ac quaintance said to him: "Jake, what was the tightest hole you ever pulled yourself out of?" Jake brushed the hair out of his right eye, and replied: "I guess it was in New Orleans, about 1875. But Sam, here, was down the river at the time, and he can tell you more about it than I can." "Yes," said Sam, "I saw Jake pick himself tip and, I'll tell you how he did it. You know Harry Miller's old place?" "Yes; on St. Charles stjeet." "Poor Miller, he's dead now," said Sam. "Like most men who handle the ivories, lie went off ...

DROOP DOWN, LITTLE CLOUDLET. BV "ETnrcL." Droop lovingly down, oh cloudlet, Low down, iii the purpling west, Until your glowing sunbeams Rest on my dear one's breast— Until your rich hues darken And shimmer into gold, Then toucli with loving lingers, Her dear l'aco, oh so cold. So drawn, and white and death-like, Yet sweet as closing flower, And hands so still and nerveless, Holding my heart's best dower. Last eve, as the twilight shadows Soft o'er the mountains lay We drew her to the casement Where dewy breeies play. Her eyes, so soft and dreaming, Light "up with fitful glare. While o'er her cheek faint flushes O'or laid the lilies there. The lingering sunset's kisses Touched lips, and brow, and hair, leaving wealth of golden richness In my darling's tresses rare. When all the golden glory Faded out of the sunset sky. In the midst of fading splendors, We heard her last "good-bye;'' Ana when the morrow's sunlight, Light's up, this world 01 ours. We'll lav her 'neath cool mosses In a...

MISCELLANEOUS. "Yob," said the Texas man, "he's a preacher, but he's a level-headed fellow for all that. He had a flask o' the best liquor I ever got hold of in his pocket.' A French artist gave his last work to a porter to convey to the Salon. "Be carefnl," said he; "tjie picture is scarcely dry." " Oh, never mind," exclaimed the porter, "my clothes are old." A monster sewing machine, weighing over four tons, and run by steam, has been constructed for a manufacturing firm in Liverpool. The machine is tho largest in the world. John Bnll will continue to send for American beef until he finds himself confronted with the hind leg of a Ten nessee steer. Then diplomatic relations will cease.

While the smile went around, the youth went on. Wife: "Well Jones, judging from yonr breath, I can't really...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, MARCH it, 1881. On Saturday and Sunday another great snow storm prevailed in the Mississippi Valley and the region of the great lakes, stopping all railroad trains and traffic of all kinds. It is re ported as the worst storm of the whole season. Hon. Mr. McMullen, of Milwaukee, | Wis., a lawyer of standing, is upon a visit to the Sound country, as a cor respondent of prominent newspapers in Chicago and elsewhere in that re gion. He proposes to make a thor ough investigation of the resources of this country, with a view to a full re port concerning it. During the past winter the family of Mr. James Harris, of Luckianuite, have with a small fruit machine dried nearly six tons of fruit. This fruit is now worth from 10 to 11 cents per pound. This makes the profit from his orchard equal to that from a mod erate sized grain farm in a successful year; and this without occupyingtime that could lie used for any other pur pose, as all the work, except gatherin...

BRIEF MENTION, All i* quiet again since court adjourned. The epizootic among Vancouver horses is rapidly abating. For the first time this year the streets showed dust this week. We hear of a number of new dwellings to be commenced soon iu Vancouver. There was only one book agent in town on Saturday, but lie was a gentleman. It is said tho P. T. Co. 's boat will be ready for the trial trip about April 10th. C. B. Wilcox has the contract for laying up the walls of John Jaggy's new building. The people should be delighted to know that poat-otlice box rent will be due next week. Now is the beautiful spring time of our discontent, for house cleaning time is almost at hand. Mr. Cottier, of San Francisco, the patent ventilator man, paid Vancouver a visit on Saturday. A. Cook & Son are shipping large amounts of fruit trees daily from their Vancouver Nurseries. The steamboat shed has been taken down this week, and is no longer a prominent landmark. Dr. Watts, of Oregon City, lcctured on ...

A fashionably dressed young man standing in the door way; an old man, in equally modern at tire, mounting the marble steps, and a very plainly dressed young lady passing on the pavement. The young man bowed to the young lady, and she timidly acknowledged the salute. The old gentleman took notice of the act, and turned very quickly to ward the young lady; but saw only a trim, ladyliko tigure gliding gracefully down the' street. He turned, quite im patiently, to the young man, and asked, sharply: "John, who is that?" "Miss Maggie Osborne, father." "Miss Maggie Fiddlesticks!" exclaim ed the old gentleman. "What do you mean, sir?" "That the young lady isnnmed Maggie Osborne." was the quiet reply. "No trifling" threatened Mr. Morton Talbot. "Now, what is she, and who is she?" "Your last question is answered. To the first I will answer that she...

THE POISONER. It was a badly frightened and very nervous woman that was ushered into a detective's presence early one morning in June, 1865. Her name was Mrs. Schwinke; her oc cupation that of a boarding-house keeper. Her complaint was of a very Berious na ture, being an accusation of contem plated poisoning on the part of one of her favorite boarders, a gentleman by the name of Frederick Sellers. The story she told the detective in a tremulous voice may be briefly summed qp as follows: Sellers was a dry-goods clerk, and had for a roommate a young mau named Abel Luther, a druggist's clerk. Both were Ameriean-born, but of Qerman de scent, the same as Mrs. Schwinke. Sellers had been an inmate of her household upward of a year, and was a general favorite with tliem all; Mrs. Schwinke especially regarded him as in deed one of the family. But " a change came over the spirit of her dream." On the previous night while doing some re pairing to some bed-linen in a room ad joining that of Sel...

To bo even with the white leaguers of Mississippi and Louisiana the col ored peopleof Virginia, taking pattern after the agitators, have formed a black league, the object of which is to force land owners to work their land on shares, and the leaguers pledge themselves not to work for any land owner for wages, and to prevent oth ers from doing so. It is feared they will engage in "Boycotting" in order to carry their point. The land own ers are thoroughly alarmed, and are organizing on the other hand and pledging themselves not to rent land to colored men. The land owners de clare that rather than yield they will import white laborers from the north ana from Euiope.
