A CHARACTER SKETCH. Tbe nuilc seemed pensive, even sad, As if by conscience pricked; But when they came to share his woes, lie raised objections—kicked. The cat came up to sympathize, With mew and gentle purr; Alas! she cot within his reach, When—fiddlestrings and fur. The dog, in Pity, neared him to Alleviate his care; He tried to pass around him once, Bi»t—sausage meat and hair. And John, the honest farmer boy Who had the boast in charge, Tried recklessly to harness him— His funeral was large. Oh, trifling were the causes which His flexible legs unfurled; And many were the quadrupeds That sought another world. He never did a decent thing; He wasn't worth a ducat; He kicked and kicked until he died And then he kicked the bucket HIS REWARD. "You are most unjust, Charles, and I know the Lord will one day stiug your conscience for your cruelty, and for your lieartlessness toward that dear child." The speaker was a comely lady of abont fifty, tall, slim and upright, and neatly clad in ...

The Jews In Germany. It may seem strangs that the English, who are not at bottom a tolerant race, should be distinctly in advance of their Getmau relatives in their attitude toward the Jews. Even when they were doing their best to keep Baron Rothschild out of Parliament, Englishmen spoke with genuine reverence of his vast wealth. Ho was so very rich that he ought to have been an orthodox Christian. Surely, Divine grace could not in the end be withheld from a man with such a busi ness. It was necessary to oppose his entry into the House of Commons in the interval; but it was a necessity that gave pain, not pleasure to those who felt its force. For many years past all that we have done in the way of persecuting the Jews has been to try to convert them; and, though a good deal of money has been spent on this ex cellent object, we never heard that a sin gle Jew objected to this outlay. Noth ing came of the effort, and the Jewish race have always been content to put up with it 011 the fa...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, MARCH 31, ISSI. Great floods are prevailing on the Platte river in Nebraska, and its trib utaries, greater tlian were ever before known since the country has been set tled. The valley is one vast lake, and great "damage to property is the re sult. There has been much talk in the | east for four weeks past concerning an extra session of congress, which some of the politicians, not the people, have been clamoring for. President Gar field lias very properly refused to call au extra session. Gov.

Vancouver Independent* Official Papib or Citt add Codntt. Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Territory. IJT THE OLOAMim "You are the best judge of your own eart, but I do not think your future promises much happiness us the wife of feodfrey Hope. Remember who and what he is." These were the words over which Alice Hope j-ondered as she walked through he grove at Bellows Falls. It was her favorite walk when she wished for soli tude, though it lay at some distance from her home, the stately house that crowned an incline stretch of ground overlooking the village. Remember who and what he is! Mrs. Hope had said these words very slowly, and with due emphasis, only a few hours before, when Alice had read to her a letter in which Godfrey Hope had asked her to be his wife. Who was he, then? He was the second cousin of Alice, a man about twenty-seven, who had been brought up by his grandfather in the house at Bellows Height, and had supposed his inheritance of house and furniture assured.

THE WIFE'S SECRET. Can I bear it?" asked George Chester field's wife, of her own heart, as she knelt beside the bed, her arms upon it, her face hidden upon them; "can I bear it? can I bear it?" Then her own heart answered, "You can, for if he does not love you, you love him." And she arose and stood beside her baby's cradle, and saw its father's eyes look up at her from this, his tiny miniature, and took upon her gentle shoulders a burden she had never thought to bear. That morning a letter had been brought to her —an anonymous letter, accompanied by a packet. The letter ran thus: Dadam —A friend who does not wish to see you imposed upon sends you these to show you what a man may be. They have boen stolen from the person to whom they were written, but the good intention sanctifies the means used to further it. A Well Wisheb. The wife of two years reads,this and had opened the packet. There she found love-lettors, written to'some woman ad dressed as Olivia, and dated one year be fore...

A peculiar case of Tannerism is un earthed. Nothing like it litis been heard of before. Most reputable phy sicians of lowa City have examined thecase. Miss Hattie Dent, a sister in-law of Dr. Ay 1 worth of that city, who lias not eaten a morsel for 2.> days nor has she spoken a word for ;i years. She abstained from food 011 the ground that it was her religious duty to do so, and from talking tor the same reason. Persuasion of friends is useless, and she is slowly wasting away. Miss Dent is a maiden lady 52 years of age, and has always been highly respected. Near the camp of the workmen on the new toll road, near Yankee Forks, Nev., quite a curiosity was recently found. It was a mountain ram's heail deeply imbedded in a pine tree, and about six feet from the ground. The right horn is outside, and curls partly around the tree, while the front of the skull and most of the left horn is cov ered with the growth of wood. The tree is a thrifty pine, fifteen inches through. How that ram'...

Jay Gunid's Mouse-Trap. My first visit to New York was during the Crystal Palace exhibition. I was a mere boy. I was full of ambition, andl brought a little thing with me from my country liame that I thought was going to make my fortune ard revolutionize the world. What do you suppose it was ?" "I am sure I do not know.'' "It was (laughing heartily) a mouse trap. That mouae-trap was to me the greatest thing in New York. It was not very big, but I took so much pride in it —it was so precious to me —that I had a very handsome mahogauy box made in which to carry it. I remember very well getting on one of the street cars —I think it was on the Sixth avenue line. I was a little more unsophisticated in the ways of New York then than I am now. I was anxious to seo the city. It was a wonder to me, and I stepped out on the platform to look at its blocks and blocks of houses. In my innocence I left my mouse trap on the seat. When I got to the street where I wished to get off I stepped inside ...

VANCOUVKU INDEPENDENT. | THURSDAY, APRIL 7, 1881. t ■ i After the reiterated assertions of the ' ( journals in the interest of tin 1 O. U. & 1 N. Co., it seems to be finally settled! that the bold m >ve of Mr VilUrd and his associates to get control of the N. P. R. R. has failed, as we had pre- j' dieted. It failed for no want of deter- ; | mination on the part of Mr. Villanl, i 1 j < who really supposed a few weeks ago, ] th it he had succeeded in getting more | than one half the stock in the market, j But, like many others before him, he \ had reckoned without his host, and i bad crowed before he was fairly out of |' the woods. Hail he kept silent, had he continued to buy quietly all the Northern Pacific shares as they floated upon the market, and kept his own counsel, tlserc seems to be no reasona ble doubt but that he might have sue-, ceeded in his designs, But he was too eager to proclaim his supposed victory to the world. By so doing, he woke j up Frederick W. Billin...

Vancouver Independent. OvnciAL Pani of Citt ann County. Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Territory. A War Reminiscence.

True, the final and bloody repulse of the rebels at Malvern Hill had cheered us np somewhat, but it was plain to en listed men as well as officers that the oc cupation of Richmond would have to be deferred for a long time. It was during our first week's occupa tion of this prehistoric spot that I en joyed the first and only opportunity I ever had of seeing President Lincoln, who visited the army shortly after its ar rival in order to ascertain its exact con dition and decide upon its future move ments. As the writer of this was the orderly of Maj. Gen. Sumner, whose guest the President was during his brief stay, he had more than ordinarily good advan tages for observing his peculiarities, which, it is needless to say, he improved to the utmost.

Historic Battle Flip. It is nearly 20 years since Colonel H. C. Lee led a band of 980 gallant men, known as the 27th regiment Massachu setts volunteers, through the streets of Springfield, on their way to that un known locality, fraught with so many dark forebodings, "the front." The Wen, women and children of the city and Western Massachusetts who saw that march from Camp Reed, on the Sixteen Acres road, to the depot, that November Saturday alter noon, have by no means forgotten it, or the subsequent history of the regiment. The tattered flags once comprised three stands of colors, one national and two state, two of which, a national and a state flag, were the origi nal colors which the regiment carried to the war, and were provided by the com monwealth. The other banner, bearing the Massachusetts coat of arms on a silk fabric, was presented by the women of Springfield in the early summer of 1802, as a mark of their appreciation of the meritorious services rendered by the regiment ...

Tiie Orai-li.T.i JiliJl The Greeks number a million and a half souls. By the terms of the Ber lin conference the Greek boundary was to be extended, as was the Mon tenegrin, at the expense of the Turk. When the Turk had the Russians off his hands, and had time to rest and get his wind, lie cooly refused to con tract his lines so tiiat those of the Greek and Montenegrin might be ex tended. The latter seized his musket and knife, and was ready in a mo ment to tight for his rights. After a certain amount of threatening the Turk gave way, which, however, he Immediately after tlately refused to do for the Greek. The latter has been preparing to follow the Montenegrin example. The army has been worked up to a force of s(),0iill men, which is a stupendous force for so little a king dom. King George demands the exe cution of the Berlin decrees, and de clares his readiness to light therefor. He also relies upon Europe for protec tion, and Europe is more or less bound to give it.

SOOTHING SENTIMENT. The stars sent forth their lambent flame, Or burning suns their fiercer light; Ere planets filled the vast inane, And starless yet the brow of night. There stretched thro' countless fields of space, The nebular, unformed and dim; Till condensation, in his place, Arose and calmly said "too thin.'' And straight the primal atoms rushed Into molecular embrace; And molecules, in masses formed, To till the worlds with waiting space. A mere hypothesis is this: The facts as yet wo don't possess; The nebular hypothesis Gives all who choose the right to guess. From nebular to star there's room For guessing and fane* 's play; Imagination has its "boom" .lust now in. scientific way. But I'm digressing 'Tis a fault Of mine, this tendency tostrav: My whim I'll have, I must not halt, At least this side the nebular. That far off gaseous domain. Where Stardust thickly strewn doth lie; And where the potential once had lain, The stellar growths that gem the sky. And when new suns a...

The nihilist prisoners who were concerned in the assassination of the emperor of Russia have all been duly tried, found guilty, and sentenced to be hanged.
