Vancouver Independent. Official Pap** of Citt akd Couktt. Yuesunr, Clark* County, Washington Territory. THE MEASURE OF LIFE. BY BAY A Bit, If lives were measured by the good In words or deeds that men achieye, How few of Adam's children could Expect the Psalmist's term to live. If lives were measured by the joys By nnu conferred 011 other men, How few could pass the ageot boys, How few would care to live again. If lives were measured by the sins And sorrows we scatter round. We might outlive the famous Pjinns, And with Methuselah be found. If lives were measured by mistakes. By bravo designs that come to nought, By all the countless pains and aches "Ourselves u|>ou our hearts have brought Then might we scoff at darts of death, The weight of growing years defy, ?srenelv draw our useless breath. And live till Time himself should die. TO*. Oh! but it was cold; freezing, bitting, bitter cold! and dark, too; for the feeble gaslights, leaping and ilamiug as the gale whistled by, hardly...

ON THE VERASDA. The people who owned it called it a porch, but Miss Hetherington thought that a rather depreciatory way of speak ing of her country resort, for the sum mer boarders lived there. The house might have been a very pleasant one wheu it was opened, but in the summer time it was virtually closed, because of the (lies, and heat, and dust, and sun, Mrs. Fries said. In tho morning the bed in the boarders' room was nicely made—too nicely for a considerate per son to disturb—the furniture all dusted aud put back against the wall, and tho furniture was solid mahogany; the blinds were stint, and indeed the win dows too, and coming in out of the sun light one had to grope one's way all over the house. So Miss Hetherington went out on the veranda immediately after breakfast and remained there, if she re mained near the house at all, till bed time. Just now it was delightful. She had just left the breakfast table, but by the little watch that hung Jrom her girdle it was already nine...

Salvage from Lima. Pern. 1 Colonist, Victoria, B. C.} The ship Herman, which arrived a few days ago from Callao, Peru, left that port about the date on which the Peruvians had been reduced to the direst necessity in consequence of their unfortunate war with Chili. The hos tile armies were facing each other a few miles from the rich city of Lima and the women and children' were (ly ing in every direction. Among the shipping in the harbor rode the Jhr man, and on board of her was sent the property of several of the richest and most influential families of Callao and Lima. The goods tilled fifty or sixty large cases, and comprised dresses and dress goods and the most costly fab ric; articles of virtu, oil paintings of antiquity, rare jewelry, watches, and sparkling gems «f purest water from Brazilian mines. These goods were stripped from wardrobes, walls and shelves, and hurried into the cases higgledy-piggledy, as household goods ! that are in the path of an appalling conflagration ar...

TIIE DISCONTENTED STAR. One niglit a little twinkling star, tirown weary of its sphere, With foolish thoughts and fancies wild Sighed out —"Why am I here?" "Why am I but a little star, * With a |<ale unsteady light, The least among the many lamps That light the hills of night? J'rn we.irv of my changeless life, Unknowing and unknown: I've nightly run the self same course Where I for years have shone; I've noted manv a sister star Bending lovingly to hear, The greeting of soma mortal tongue Where'er her smiles appear, But never was a mortal eye Gazed wonderingly on me; And never has a human sigh Been wafted up to nie. But onee a pair of mournfll eyes Looked up from grief and fear, To give me but a single glance, Then closed upon a tear! tVhv was I born a worthless thing V?ith nought of beauty'v ray? I cannot live this lonely life, No longer will 1 stay!" So saying did the foolish star The path of error take. And o'er her calm and simple life Her wild bemoanings make. Then turning,...

TO-DAY AND TO MORROW. BY KBBSC K. BKXKORO. If we could know what trials The future has in store — The pitfalls in the pathway, The thorns our feet before— We should sit down despairing, And count all struggle vain, And hearts that fight with fortune Would never light again. Thank God, He hides the sorrow It may l>e ours to share; We lace the future bravely, Not knowing what is there. Our hearts keep courage hoping For all glad things of life; We think of joy, not so'row— Of rest, and not of strife. Better to hope for sunshine Than (tread what days may bring; Better than sail forkoiling To keep up heart and sing. 'Tin wrong to cloud the sunshine God gives us for to-day With fancying that to-morrow May have a sky of gray. Bo never borrow troublo— The old advice is good; Don't battle with the lions Before you reach the wood. Be brave of heart, my brother— Be happ" while you may; The good things of the present Were given for to-day. A Real Romance. On a hot July day in the summer of ...

V.IVi'OUVHK IXDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, MAY 'JO, 1881. Would it not be well for the public, forthe welfare of the country, if our moralists and censors should once in a while turn their attention from the hackneyed subject of the "(lowing bowl" on which they have been harp ing so persistently, and, if only for the sake of variety, turn their elo quence to the correction of other abuses? Let these self appointed cen sors look about them; they will easily discover other subjects of reform. In temperance is not the only cause of idleness and crime. Let us study the causes which lead to intemperance and, as sensible physicians, cure them. It is not enough to denounce intem perance. Let us investigate thecauses which lead to it and suppress them. We may howl at intemperance with the same persistence and variety of note with which dogs howl at the moon in the stillness of the night; but the howl pro 1 icjs about as much ef fect in one case as iu the other. It is not given to the noisy bipeds t...

Vancouver Independent. Official Papip. of City and County. Vancouver. Clarke County, Washington Territory. A NARROW ESiAPE It was dreadfully dull at Elderbush Farm. Mr. Poyntz had hired the farm for six months. "If my girls are so bewitched after the seaside," said he, "and the country, I'll toy and give 'em enough of it." Elderbush Farm was in the real estate market at a low rate, and Mr. Poyntz engaged it, ready furnished, with a gard ener, a cow, and the pony phaeton, with a blind pony thrown in. Mrs. 'Poyntz and the girls, however— such is the perversity of human nature —did not seem pleased when they heard of the bargain which had been driven. "But, pa," said Miss Imogen, "we didn't mean a one-storied house in a swamp of salt marshes! We meant Cape May, or Atlantic City, or else that dear, picturesque Deleware Water Gap!" "There's no society here," sobbed Alexia, the second daughter, a blooming girl just out of boarding-school. "Notliiug going on," said Mrs.Po.vntz, a stout mat...

"COLLECTING" A MI AWL FOR THE MmgTER'S WIFE. Our chapel is always more or less chilly, but I noticed that our new minis ter's wife wore the same thin sacque to the evening meetings that she did on Sunday, so I said to Mrs. Goodenougli — she is always first and foremost in all good works— ' "Wouldn't a nice, warm shawl be an acceptable Christmas present to the minister's wife?" and she jumped at the idea in a minute. "Just the thing!" she said, looking as S leased as if she was the one that was to ave the present. "And if vou : d like to have mo, I'll go round with you to-morrow afternoon, and see how much we can collect to wards it." Of courso I was glad of lier company and countenance, and we started out bright and early, for our plan was to go first to some dealer in shawls and see what we would have to pay for one, to start with. "Where shall we go first?"' I asked. "There's Smart & Co., —he's a member of our Church, and will be likely to give us a good bargain, seeing it's f...

i tin; luuiAL i ru.HM. A new sawmill w ill soon be in working or der ou the headwaters of the Ahtanum, Yakima county, capable of cutting 23,000 feet of lumber a day. The Colfax Gazette asserts that a regular organized band of horse thieves exist in Whitman county, and favors lynching as the best way to deal with them. A saw log was recently barked on the Skagit which measured 74 inches in diame ter and 24 feet iu length. The Port Blakely mill last week cut a log 111 feet long, which produced 13,000 feet of clear lumber. A Walla Walla man killed and ate five Bob White quail. He was arrested aud the proof of his guilt being positive was tined So for each quail, which, together with the costs of the suit, made the luxury cost him $43. He went to jail rather than pay the amount. The engineers of the N. P railroad, says the Klickitat Sentinel, have located the liue up the Yakima river, to a point about tive miles above Horse-shoe bend, and it is stated on good authority that grading on t...

"Devotedly yoUrs, "Eiiior Vane." This note was read by a gill standing in a flood of spring sunshine against a high, balconied window. When she had finished, she gazed long and wistfully upon the expanse of water rippling with a metallic gleam in the spring wind, across which boats were darting, rocking from side to side. She crossed the room to where a small woman with a face that bora tracus of a former negative pretti ness was seated, embroidering a table cover, with a cup of tea by her side. "Auntie, Mr. Vane writes to ask me to go to the Armenian Convent with him. May I ?" "How can you ask such a questio...

Tlie San Francisco Gallery. 1 From the Punday Welcome.l Within the last few years, and particu larly within the United States, the soience and art of photography have been developed to a wonderful degree of perfection.

LlJiCOiiVi LOVE. On thk Cabs, April 17.—1 loft, off jnst as our host, Mr. W. G. Green, was about to relate how the match between Abraham Lincoln and Mary Owens was broken oft. "It was this way," soid Mr. Green. "My cousin, Nancy Green, had a great, strappiug baby that she was in the habit of lugging about with her wherever she went. Possibly Lincoln didn't have a passion for babies; at any rate, he was not in love with this one, and I remem ber very well that when his own son Bob was in the cradle Lincoln used to lie on the floor reading, and let the future Sec retary of War split his lungs yelling to be carried about the house. If Mrs. Lincoln happened to arrive home about thib time there was trouble in the family for a few minutes, but 110 remonstrances or appeals could ever make him a good nurse. He would read, and, so far as appearances went, was deaf to all the in fantile cries that came from his hopeful heirs. When the babies grew up a bit, and knew something, they found in th...
