School directors. —The atten tion of School Directors is called to a provision of Section 8 of the 4th chap ter of the Territorial School Law, which reads as follows: "It shall be the duty of the directors to visit the school or schools of their respective districts at least twice each term." We fear there are many diicctors in this county who do not remember this law. The schools need all the aid and en couragement they can get, and those persons in tbe district, upon whom the law imposes ■ duty, should net forget what they have to do. The picnic season, the seasou when the young man's fancy lightly turns to to the sportive trout, has beeu in full bloom during tbe past month. Salmon Creek, Lacamas and the little Wash ougal are the favorite resorts. The two former are tbe easiest ot access, bat the latter, abounding with rapids and tumultuous falls, shady glades and deep pools, is a royal place for a day's fishing. Mr. Buchanan, lately from Missouri, called on us the other day with ...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY. Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. By and By. BY THOMAS S. COLLIER. What will the bright years give to me, The years that soon will come; Will they bring ships from a far sea, Bearing rich treasure home; Treasure of hope expected long, Born 'neath a brilliant sky; And tones of clear and ringing song, Will these come by and by? Shall I then see the sunny face, Seen in so many dreams, Lit by a loving, tender grace; And golden light, that gleams In shining hair; and feel the hand I wish in mine to lie; And with her walk the summer land In the sweet by and by? Ah, then the toil and care, 1 know. Will melt like morning mist, And the near hills will burn and glow In robes of amethyst; And, when we meet them, we shall meet Surcease from tear and sigh; For just beyond them lies the sweet, Fair lands of by and by. — Portland Transcript. Australian Fish Stories. This story.which is doubtless still told at the Bolivia stati...

Effects of Cold Storms on Ponltry. Each season of tho year brings its spe cial work and care, demanding the atten tion of the keepers of poultry. . Except ing the first bleak autumn storms, no period of the year is so trying to the con stitution of fowls as cold, spring rain storms. Birds that have stood the sever ity of winter without any apparent signs of disease, often succumb to the effects of a chilly rain-storm. The germs of dis ease, however, are sometimes contracted during confinement in winter, aud the sudden change of weather, experienced during a cold rain, will develop the mal ady, which is likely to become contagious. Fowls that have been highly fed and kept warm to induce laying, will, like a forced plant, be too tender to stand neglect dur ing the early, drenching rains that pene trate to their very skins. The danger need not be feared, how ever, by those who will take a little extra care of their stock during such weather. As soon as the earth softens under the first...

The Independent. THURSDAY, JI'NE 7, 1877. Learn Tour Boys to Work. If boys are too unruly to bo kept in achool with profit, they had better be put to work at something. Parents do their boys a great, wrong by permitting them to run in the streets. The first place for a healthy active boy is at school, the next best place is the work shop or the farm. They must, by all means, have employment of some sort. If not moral and profitable employment, it will be of an immoral and unprofita ble character. Whether a boy is pre (Manoaed to mischief or not, idleness and evil associations will soon trans form him into a hoodlum. Most, if not all boys, when left to themselves, will get into mischief. It is an old laying "That Satan finds work for idle hands to do,'' sorrowfully illustrated in the case of boys, whose parents have left them to take care of themselves. Boys should be early taught to have an Object in life, to which end, redeeming the time is the first requisite. An ac tive, growing ...

Disenchanted. Do I think of the past to regret it' Do I sigh for a bliss I have known" Is my mind by au image haunted Whose substauce forever hut- down*' In the stillness of night, when uo slumber Will rest on my wakeful eyes, Doea a voice thro' my chamber re-echo, Which gladdened mc oft with surprise? No! I look on the past as the sailor, Escaped from the wreck to the shore, Looks back on the perils that threateued But never will threaten him more. The vision, once bright, but now faded. That charmed iv delirious youth, I know as a mock'ry most hollow. Tho" wearing the semblance of truth 1 have bade an adieu to each feeling, That united that vision to me, Love, anger aud hatred ate banished. Compassion alone would not flee.

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY. Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. Consolation. Tiny fingers all too slight. Hold within their clasping tight Waxen roses scarce more white. Nights and days of weary pain, I have held them close—in vain: Now I never shall again. Crossed upon a silent breast, By no guttering distressed. Still they lie, iv silent rest. They shall ne'er unfolded be, Never more iv agony Cling so pleadingly to me. * • * * * * • Seltish heart, that thou shouklst prove So unworthy of the love Which thine idol doth remove.

American Grape Culture. To many readers it may be of interest to learn somewhat of the progress of the grape culture in this country. A little over a quarter of a century has passed when the acres devoted to grape culture numbered barely one hundred. True, almost every family had one or two vines; but its growth, as a market fruit, was little thought of. Time has passed, and we now stand to-day, ranging from Maine to Utah and California, with over one huudred and sixty thousaud acres devoted to vineyard culture. Add to this the private gardens iv which from ten to fifty vines are grown; aud we think a hundred thousaud acres will not more than cover the ground occupied. There are really no statistics from which to found any statement, aud the one made has been from forty years of records, observations, and memoranda of travel. The writer who has been working this up for the Wine and Fruit Reporter, of New York City, has taken all the States from Maine to California. The southern part...

The Consular Service. Besides the envoys whom the United States sends abroad to represent the country at foreign courts, a large num ber of consuls are appointed, to reside in different foreign cities and towns. The duties of the consuls, however, are very different from those of the envoys, or ministers. The hitter are employed to negotiate treaties, and to look after the general interests of their country. The consul«, on the other hand, have almost entirely commercial and maritime duties. There are two sorts of consuls in the service of the nation; those wdio reside iv inland cities and towns, and those who reside at seaports. The chief task of the inland consuls is, to see to it that goods sent from the place where they are stationed to the United States are properly "invoiced." Our revenue system requires that the •'invoices," or detailed lists and descrip tions of the goods entering American ports, shall truthfully state the prices at which they are sold to the American mercha...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY. Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. Brown Eyes and Bine. BY NANNIE SAHLEK. Under tbe shade of the sheltering vines, They met at the close of day; She fresh from the dairy, clean and sweet, And he from tbe Held of hay. She had brown eyes and a gentle smile, Brown eyes that were tender and true; And he a manly and graceful form, And eyes that were bold and blue. They spoke of the dairy, fresh and sweet, They talked of the field of hay; But the maiden's heart beat quick and fast, For 6he knew what he'd come to say. The moon shone out, with a clear, soft light, Blue eyes looked into the brown. And the youth could read a world of bliss In the maiden's eyes, cast down. Under the shade of the sheltering Tines, His arm stole around her waist; But the words that he spoke in her listening ear, Have never with pen been traced; For the moon went under a fleecy cloud. And veiled from her eyes the sight; And only the 6tars, and...

Wheat. The edge of the mania for speculating in wheat having been taken oft by the break in the market, which has brought considerable losses to over-sanguine op erators, it seems to be a proper time to consider calmly the prospects of the mar ket for the future. The causes which will operate to make an advance ia the price of wheat, and keep it up, are: 1. —The entire withdrawal of our great competitor, Southern Russia, from the lists, and consequently our being called upon to make good the deficiency. It is calculated that this will require about 72,000,000 bushels of grain, corn and wheat—equal to about 7-10ths of our av erage annual exports. 2. —The singular coincidence of partial and total failures of wheat crops in coun tries which have competed to a less im portant degree, with the Central United States in the business of supplying Eu rope with breadstufts. These countries are California, Chili, India and Australia, in all of which great diminutions are re ported, and which i...
