The Independent. THURSDAY, MAY 10, 1877. The War in Europe. From all appearances the war in Eu rope bids fair to spread into a general Maze throughout the continent. The Russians are pushing on actively into the Turkish country, and now that they are fairly organized and under way, they are beginning to make the nervous Turk feel the force of their strong and well disciplined soldiery and generalship. The Turkish strength has been tinder estimatatod, for that nation is really more powerful than the world is led to believe. The help they will receive from Egrpt and oth er friendly powers will also be con siderable. Sympathy is most alto gether with the armies of the north. There is a powerful party in England whose influence is cast against the dusky Turk. The Democratic masses of that country do not seem to be in accord with Turkey. The threatening reply of Lord Derby, on behalf of the British Government, to the Russian declaration of war. has caused dessen sion in the councils of E...

Trying His Men. The battle of San Jacinto, by which Texas gained her independence, was fought on April 21, 1836. Gen. Houston commanded the Texans and Santa Anna the Mexicans. On the morning of the battle, Deaf Smith, the commander of a spy company, suggested to Gen. Houston that it was ex pedient to burn a bridge over a bayou, some eight or nine miles distant, to pre vent the advance of reinforcements to the Mexicans. "Can you do it?" asked Gen. Houston, without being cut to pieces by the Mexi can cavalry?" "Give mesix men," replied Smith, u aud I will try." "Take them." Returning to his company, Smith said, "I want six men. lam going to burn the bridge. I want six men who arc willing to follow me through, or perish in the at tempt." Six horsemen rode forward as volun teers. They passed within guv-shot of the rear of the Mexican cavalry, reached the bridge, burnt it, and set out on their return to camp.

Tancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITT AMD CODMTT. Tsaeoavsr, Clavrka County, Wash inffton Territory. A Welcome. Open the window this cheery morn, Enter, O sunshine, rare; Seek out the couch of the invalid, And kiss her forehead fair. Come in,thou breexejrom the tropic clime, Give hope to the fainting heart, Light to the eye, and bloom to the cheek, For these thou canst impart. Out on the green this golden morn, The children shout with glee, For the air is warm, and the daisies smile, While leaflets deck the tree. Over the pebbles the clear brook falls, With soft and silvery gleam; Its tone is sweet as a seraph's voice, That comes in a peaceful dream. Dull is the sense, and cold the heart, And the lips that fail to sing, With earth and air, an anthem of joy, To welcome the dawn of spring. Gladstone's Account of Montenegro and its Inhabitants. In a popular lecture, delivered recent ly, Gladstone, tbe ex-premier of England, gave the following terse account of Mon tenegro : The h...

Effects of Potatoes on Milk. We do not think the partial experi ments upon this matter are properly in terpreted, even by those who have made them. It has been found tbat a large feed of potatoes lessens the percentage of hay digested; but we think the large amount of starch contained in the potato causes a looseness of the bowels, and thus impairs the digestive function. We httve often fed potatoes to cows in milk with great benefit. Our plan has been to run potatoes through a root-slicer, and feed four quarts at a time, mixed with cut hay aud a pint of oil-meal or pea-meal,or a quart of oats. And since the experi ments mentioned, we have again tried this mode of feeding and found it to work admirably well. The potato is a very imperfect food alone, being principally starch, having too little nitrogen and phosphate of lime to make milk; but it is the richest root raised on the farm, aud when fed in a small quantity, raw, will regulate the bowels and have a similar effect to green g...

The Independent THURSDAY, MAT 24, 1577. Counlry Notes. Sheriff Fletcher returned last weik from an official business trip through the comity. He reports crops on the bottom lands looking thrifty and rank, promUing an abundaut har vest in the full. Notwithstanding the uuusu&l dryness of the spring, the crops on Hill Plain look quite as well as at this time last year. The acreage also, is quite up to any former yeur. The Fourth Plain fields do not look as thrifty as those ot their neighbors on Mill Plain, but promise a good yield. New land in the outer districts is being cultivated this season. Immigrants are coming in slowly, and every section of the county can name additions to its pop ulation this year. On balraon Creek a company of thirteen men, n-lives of Switzerland and lately from Nebraska, have purchased the saw mill and about 600 acres of land of Lewis Leiser. They engage in varions agiicultural pursuits and the manufacture ot lumber. They are a valuable aqnisition to the...

Homicide by an Infant. A dispatch from Boston to the New York Herald says: A homicide most peculiar in the cir cumstances surrounding it, owing to the extreme youth of the parties concerned, occurred this afternoon on Holyoke street, at the South End. The murderer was a little boy named Dudley Kimball, four years old, and tbe victim Stephen Cox, two years his senior. Both boys belong to families of respectability, living oppo site each other on the street mentioned, the Kimballs being on the west side at No 26 and the Coxes at No. 28. It ap pears, from all the information gleaned, that the two boys, with a large party of children, early in the day were at play together, and that for some trivial cause they quarreled. The little Kimball boy, who is com monly called "Major," said he would "fix him," meaning Cox; but no trouble of a serious nature occurred until afternoon, when both boys again met on the side walk, in front of the garden of Mr. Kim ball's residence, a large party of ch...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITT AND COUNTY. ▼aneoavtr, Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. Water Lilies. I wandered once through garden bowers All gemmed with jasmine and with sprays Of coral buds, while gorgeous flowers Bent o'er the leaf-strewn fragrant ways; Yet none were fair, their heavy scent, Their brilliant bloom confused the mind; My heart kept asking, as I went, For something of a purer kind. A bueh of roses, full and grand, • Held me to view its burden sweet, While an unseen but blessed hand Laid a fair offering at my feet! Soft trailing buds, half hid in green, With glistening jewels overwrought— Tbe beauty that my mind had seen, The pureness that my heart had sought! Fresh water lilies, dainty white, All gleaming through a veil of dew; They seemed a vision to my sight, Yet breathed a language that 1 knew. Through many a day these lilies bright Have wafted fragrance o'er my way; And in the darkness of the night Their whiteness makes it yet seem day. Oh, ma...

Seventeen Thousand New Farms Started Within a Year. Does any one know how many new farms have been opened in the United States and their Territories this year; how many new log cabins have been built; how many acres of virgin soil plowed up for the first time? It is not probable that any one does know with ex actness, but there is a little table in the report of the Secretary of the Interior, presented to Congress recently, which furnishes material for an approximately correct answer to these questions. Dur ing the year, ending with June last, there were taken up, under the home stead law, 2,875,909 acres. New land taken up under the homestead law is for actual cultivation, and it is generally taken iv lots of 100 acres. It would ap pear, therefore, that more than 17,000 new farms were commenced last year under the homestead law alone. But this is not all. There were sold during the year 640,691 acres for cash, and 137,- --040 acres were alloted on military land warrants. It i« no d...

The Independent. THURSDAY, MAY 31, 1877. County Fiuances. An examination of the Auditor's an nual exhibit, published this week on the lirst page of this paper, reveals the fact that during the past year the county has added $1,833.10 to its in debtedness. Compared with the reduc tion of the debt in 1876 by 8992.07 the inquiry, why this difference, becomes pertinent. A comparison of the pul>- lic expenditures in 1876, with those of 1877, shows that in the fiscal year now closed, they exceed those of 1876 by $3,296.59.

Six Little Feet on the Fender. In my heart there ttveth a picture Of a kitchen rude and old, Where the firelight tripped o'er the rafter, And reddened tbe roof's brown mould, Gilding the steam of the kettle, That hummed ou the foot-worn hearth, Throughout all the livelong eveniug. Its measure of drowsy mirth. Because of the three light shadows That frescoed the rude old room — Because of the voices echoed Up 'mid the rafters' gloom— Because of the feet on the fender, Six restless, white little feet— Tbe thoughts of that dear old kitchen Are to me so fresh and swevt When the first dash at the window Tells of the coming rain, Ob, where are the fair young faces That crowded against the pane, While bits of firelight stealing Their dimpled cheeks between, Went struggling out in darkness, In shreds of silver sheen f Two of tbe feet grew weary, One dreary, dismal day, And we tied them with snow-white ribbous, Leaving them by the way. There was fresh clay on the fender That weary, wintry ni...
