Vancouver Independent! OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITT AND COUNTY. Vancouver, Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. Time Enough. Two little squirrels, out in the sun. One gathered nuts, the other had none; w Time enough yet," his constant refrain, "Summer is still only just on the wane." Listen, my child, while I tell you his fate; He roused him at last but he roused him too late; Down fell the snow from a pitiless cloud, And gave little squirrel a spotless white shroud. Two little boys in a school-room were placed; One always perfect, the other disgraced; "Time enough yet for rr.y learning," he said, "I will climb, by and by, from the foot to the head." List en, my darling; their locks have turned gray; One as a governor sitting to-day; The other, a pauper, looks out at the door Of the alms-house, and idles his days as of yore. Two kinds of people we meet every day; One is at work, the other at play. Living uncared for, dying unknown— The business hive hath ever a drone. Tell me, my child.i...

How to Drive. It makes a great difference in the travel of a team, or even iv their drawing, whether they are driven by one who uu derstauds his business or by one who has never takes the pains to inform himself how a horse should be driven. We have seen a teamster try in vaiu to start a heavy load, whan another, who better under stood the nature of a horse, would take hold of tho lines and make them start the load with but little difficulty. The following, "How to Drive," is from the Western Farm Journal: The art of driving a horse or pair of horses correctly is learned by few. To be an expert driver requires tact, and it is of the utmost importance that tlie tem per of the horse be fully learned. Not every one possesses tact, and in its ab sence, careful study of the disposition of the horse coupled with practice are re quired. Auy horse, no matter how stu pid he may be, becomes disgusted with a noisy driver. He soon learns not to re spect his commands, aud does so prompt ly only ...

The Independent. FRIDAY, APRIL 87, ISTT, Let Patience have her Perfect Work. Patience to have her really perfect work in the human heart must not k assume that form of resignation which enervates the ambition and pales the resolution to do and dare, and to meet difficulties and overcome them. The domain where patience should rule is not confined altogether to the inner consciousness of one's defects and short comings, but also to the state of outward conditions, and should there fore enter in as an element of perse verence in all good work and honest industry. The injunction, "be patient" does not mean, be satisfied with things as they are, but to be calmly submiss ive to that which is at present inevi table; thus affording an equanimity of mind and temper congenial to el ective labor, looking to the better ment of all unpleasant conditions, whether of the outward, or an inward and personal character. The perfect work of patience is therefore first, to lend peace of mind, and second...

Webster's Personal Appearance. Mr. Webster was a model of manly excellence, of the highly civilized type; he looked the gentleman perfectly. His person represented the highest style of artificial breeding. Though the son of a plain farmer, he was, physically, the im personation of the form produced by a descent from a long line of conquering, intellectual, out-of-door exercising race. His body was strong and muscular, his chest full, his head large and firmly set upon his shoulders. His back was deeply indented, and his most careless pose sug gested pride of carriage, which idea was confirmed by the natural elevation of his face. His manners, nevertheless, were singularly unpretentious, almost child like. He never strode into the Senate, j but sauntered in, as if personally anno- i ticed, and himself without a care or pur pees. This manner, really so fascinating, j concealed all outward show of his passing thoughts, or immediate intentions. He was so conscious of his power, and had ...

Yanconyer Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITT AND COUNTY. Vancouver, Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. From Six to Sixteen. Like a garden of flowers Was the girlish procession, As pretty a picture as ever was 6een, Like lilies and roses And fairest of posies— A phalanx of beauty from six Is sixteen. Admiring we stood, For my friend was beside me, Entranced by the merry ones tripping along, When a sight more elysian Burst forth on our vision, Another procession with banner and song. Not mere little ones, With their sweet, budding graces And clear, childish laughter that rung on the air, But maidens in plenty, From sixteen to Ueenty, Like freshly blown roses, so free and so fair. My friend, who was young, With a youth's tender ardor, And heart that beat hard for the love that wa6 true, Declared each sweet maiden With more beauty laden Than hosts of fair children now passing from view. Ah! tastes—how they differ According to ages! My eyes sought the little ones brightening the scene...

A New Use for Tomatoes. "I planted a peach orchard," writes M. Siroy, of the Society of Horticulture, Valparaiso, "and tlie trees grew well and strongly. They had but just commenced to bud when they were invaded by the curculio (pulgon), which insects were fol lowed, as frequently happen*, by ants. Having cut some tomatoe j , tlie idea oc curred to me that by placing some of the leaves around the trunks and branches of the peach trees I might preserve them from the rays of the sun, which were very powerful. My surprise was great, upou the following day, to find the trees entirely free from their enemies, not one remaining, except here and there where a curled leaf prevented the tomato from ex ercising its influence. These leaves I carefully unrolled, placing upon them fresh ones from the tomato vine, with the result of banishing the last insect and enabling the trees to grow with luxuri ance. Wishing to carry stilt further my experiment, I steeped in water some fresh leaves of the t...

Thirty miles below Portland, en the Columbia River, in Columbia county, Oregon, is the town site known as Columbia City. A digni fied name lor so unpretentious an ap pearing place, but quite in keeping with the expectations of those whose destinies have been cast with the town.

Toy-Land. Wood-carving ia the chief occupation of many a mountain village both in the Tyrol and in Switzerland; but in no place has it been carried to greater perfection or been entered into more thoroughly by the inhabitants than at St. Ulrich. One branch of it, indeed, the manufacture of wooden toyß, particularly dolls, may be considered almost a specialty of the district ; for the little town of St. Ulrich is the great storehouse from which the chief toy-traders of Europe, we might al most say of the world, draw those rich and inexhaustible supplies which brighten so many nurseries and gladden the hearts of so many little ones. The art is said to have been introduced into the valley about the beginning of the la*t century, since which time it has been the principal em ployment of the inhabitants, male and female, young and old alike; for ancient grandfathers and grandmothers may be seen steadily pursuing the vocation that has been theirs from their earliest years; and as soon as ...

Facts About Whipping Horses. Horses are whipped a great many times when the w hip should be well laid on the person instead of the horse. A great many horsemeu seem to think that a spirited animal must be whipped and clubbed until his "will is brokeu." Prof. D. Magner, the illustrious horse tamer, used to say to his class in New York City thatuo mistake can be greater than this; aud there is nothing that so fully exhibits the ability, judgment and skill of the real horseman as the care aud tact displayed in wiuniug, instead of re pelling, the action of the miud. Al though it may be necessary to use the whip sometimes, it should always be applied judiciously; and meat care Bhould be takeu uot to rouse the pas sion or excite the will to obstinacy. The legitimate and proper use of the whip is calculated to operate upou the Bense of fear almost entirely. The affections of better nature must be ap pealed to in training a horse as well as in training a child. A reproof given may he intend...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITT AMD COUHTT. Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash infrton Territory. The Dying Rose to the Nightingale. HY ALICE WILLIAMS BROTHERTON. What were the gifts of a thousand lovers To that one perfect song of thine, Whose liquid cadence around me hovers, Steeping my soul in bliss divine? Oh to live and to love forever! Out of my petals fades the red; The night and thy song, O love, are over; I am dying, and thou art fled. Fled! Live on, then, —and leve another; That cannot rob me of my bliss. Though thou shouldst woo a hundred, no other, Never a one, wilt thou love like this! Thou, too, must pass death's shadowy portal; Naught will remain but this song of thine. Life is fleeting,but 6ong is immortal; Half of thy fame is also mine. I dare not weep though 1 fade forever; More from a century none could win. This is my joy, that never, oh never, Save but for me, love, thy song had been! — Atbmtu- Montnly. Queen Isabella's Dwarf. In one of the broad avenue...

Farming on Shares. This used to be a very common pro ceeding amongst us, but is falling into disuse, and the renting system is taking its place. There were two reasons for the share system. One was that many young men, excellent farmers, had not stock enough to commence for themselves in any profitable way; and another reason was that by this plan the owner kept con trol over the ground, and prevented the farm from being run down by over-crop ping and insufficiency of manure. With proper safeguards in the shape of contracts, however, the latter evil can be measurably avoided; and in regard to the first, the number of those with a fair stock to start with, and who would as soon rent as own the ground, is large enough to secure fair tenants for auy offer that may arise. The Southern States are now going through the same experience. At the end of the rebellion the freedmen had no cap ital. For those who had land, but did not desire to farm themselves, there was no way but to put it out...
