The New Italian Gun. The correspondent of the London Timet at Spezzia gives the following ac count of practice with the great 100 ton gun of the new Italian iron-clad Duilio: "Conceive a shell weighing 2,000 pounds, and moving at the rate of 1,374 feet per second —much faster than sound, travels through the air. Yet the deter-4 ruination was arrived at to go a step far ther (the guaranteed velocity having al ready been considerably exceeded) and try a charge of 330 pounds. All being arranged accordingly, the new cartridge was brought up, looking considerably thicker, and being the same length of the shot —four feet. Once more the snarling sound of the rushing water was heard, the rammer drove home cartridge and shot together, aud the deck was cleared. For some reason everybody seemed a lit tle more anxious about this round, and many hands were held over ears when the trumpets sounded, Fire! The awful bel low of the big gun seemed to shake the ground, and was reverberated from moun t...

The Burden of the Wind. Oh! wind, fresh wind of springtime, What hast thou borne away? A burden of light-winged moments That hovered aud would not stay; The music of children's laughter From meadows alt dewy and sweet, When primrose buds and cowslips Are trodden by joyous feet. Oh! wind, soft wind of summer, What hast thou borne away* A burden of love and longing, The dream of a golden day;— The murmurs of passionate voices, The exquisite perfume pressed From the heart of the rose, that nestled In the beloved one's breast. Oh! wind, wild wind of winter, What hast thou borne away? A burden of mournful remembrance, The sign of the year's decay;— The skeleton leaves of the forest, The drift from the chill snow-wreath. And the prayer to a soul that is passing Into the shadow of death. Seals and Sealing. By the natives of the higher wastes of Norway, and the wild, barren, rugged shores of Greenland, the sea is looked upon in the shape of a harvest; for the Oreenlauder feeds <m him, dr...

Little Darling. Come to my arms, my baby! My bonnie, beautiful girl! For my lips are heavy with kisses sweet For your dimpled face and your dimpled feet, My lily, my rose, my pearl! Ah, I have you, I have you, my darling! Sweet shall your slumber be, The long bright night, while the starbeams hold Their hands with mine in your locks of gold And shadows are over the sea. Soft and sweet while the night goes by— And what is the night to us? And what if the moon go under a cloud, And what if the wind cry long and loud, If I have and hold you thus* This is your world, my baby! And what is the world to me, But the pretty wee lamb that is mine, my sweet, From the curly crown to the cunning feet? What else is the world to me? Hestkk A. Benedict. The Lover's Leap. "The Lover's Leap," said I, as I stood on the north shore of Cornwall, looking up at a picturesque headland a consider able number of feet above the sea's level, and hanging threateningly over its foamy surface.

The Independent. FRIDAY, MARCH Ui. HIT. The Political Outlook. The work of President making which began actively a year ago last December at Washington, spreading from thence to the fartherest corner of the land, has proceeded etep by step, through one of liveliest, and in some respects the bitterest campaigus the country has ever known, to the conclusion of the whole matter which ended in the inaug riatiou of President Hayes on the iih instant. As in all political contests there were many issues of a fictitious nature which occupied public attention, but the main substantial Issue, or rather eoutroling idea of the campaign, was that of ot reform. Aside from the dem agoguery of politicians in uttering the reform cry, there was, and is still a sentiment pervading the whole country favoring the improvement of the meth od ol admiuUtcring the government, and the general conduct of the civil ser vice. This sentiment is grounded upon the real necessity for such improve ment, an improvemen...

The Independent. LOCAL. Nocturnal Prowler.—During the past week the nocturnal prowler has been going the rounds, great to the annoyance of divers and sundry lone women. He studiously avoids all habitations where any able-bodied men are known to be about, and vis its the widows and fatherless, taps on the windows, doors and fences, and even in some cases tries to effect an entrance to the house, generally through the window. He seems to be a very erratic individual in his movements, and no one need be tut prised to see him coining down the chimney next. He has secreted his identity successfully so far, but it is most time he was boffinninjr to take warning, for we know of several doub le-barreled shot guns in readiness for instant use, and their owners know how to handle them. Later—That mischevious wretch who has been paying nocturnal visits about town had better be a lit tle careful. His identity is better known than he imagines it is.

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY. Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. The Three Horsemen. BY KMILB LILIAX WHITING. Three horsemen halted the inn before, Three horsemen entered the oaken door, And loudly called for the welcome cheer That was wont to greet the traveler here. "Good woman," they cried as the hostess came, A buxom, rosy, portly old dame— "Good woman, how Is your wine and beer? And how is your little daughter dear?" "My house is ever supplied with cheer, But my daughter lieth upon her bier." A shadow over the horsemen fell. Each wrapped in thoughts he could never left; And silently one by one they crept To the darkened room where the maiden slept. The golden hair was ripplinglow Over a forehead pure as snow. And the little hands were idly pressed, Clasping a cross to the pulseless breast. 'I loved thee ere the death-chill lay On thee, sweet child," and one turned away. "I would have loved thee," the second said, "Hadst thou learned to l...

Iron in Hallway Structures. During the first few days after the dis aster 10 the Ashtabula bridge, there ap peared frequent and very positive state ments in many newspapers to the effect that extreme cold always made iron brit tle. Ou the other hand, a few equally positive statements were made, based upon certain European experiments, af firming that the strength of wrought iron was not in the least reduced by cold. The Tribune mentioned at the time the results of certain experiments in this country. From these it seems evident that bad iron may become brittle in cold weather, while there is little if any danger of the kind with tho best of iron. The testimony thus far obtained at the inquest aud before the Legislative Committee, furnishes already a variety of explana tions respecting the disaster. There is some evidence that a part of the wrecked train was off the track; some evidence that the plan of the bridge was of doubt ful merit, it being au attempt to substi tute iron for wo...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY. Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. The Little Daughter. Oh, she's a flower! —within our home So dainty-sweet, so gently glowing, That every day, new petaled blooms To our delighted eyes are showing. And she is a bird!—for in her voice The tiny music-tones are hiding. Whene'er she speaks, they just peep out And gaily call, our fond search guiding. And she is a star!—her bright, pure eyes Are beaming in their azure setting With grave, reproving, mild surprise, At all our worldly wise forgetting. And she is a blessing!—ere she came. Our boys were rough and often ready For cruel sports, but now, they're tame; Dear little Eva has made them steady. Is she an angel ?—Ah, no, I say,— I'd rather think the angels brought her, For their strong wings can fly away; And we would keep our little daughter. The Golden Fish of Owari Castle. In nearly every large city in Japan there is, or was, a large castle, in which the prince o...

Laying: Hens in Winter. From the letters we receive, and the personal inquiries made, we judge that with the majority of those who keep hens, egg ß are s o * l ' o6 fr (),n November until April. We have heard such comments as these on some statements we have made: "I do not understand how hens can be made to lay as many eggs in the winter as in the summer. I have never had such experience." We have been asked by several subscribers to give full and definite directions for the care of laying hens, especially in the winter. We are glad of the interest manifested in this branch of productive industry, and will give some directions, which, if followed in the care of any breed of healthy fowls, will give the owner, on the the average, at least fifteen eggs per month. The first thing is light, warm, healthy quarters. The windows iv the hennery should be low, and on the side for the morniug sun, so the fowls can take an early bath iv the sunlight. The temperature should be such that the co...
