Toiiring in Klickitat and Yakima. On the 21st day of June we were at Pine Creek in the high altitudes of Klickitat County. At this solstitial period of the year, when we generally expect hot weather and dnst in the valleys, it is an agreeable and a health ful change to don the garb of the tourist and go into "the country of magnificent distances," east of the Cascade Moun tains. Here is the steppe of Washing ton Territory, with its nutritious herb age and pure air, and here are the sleek cattle and white sheep, Angora goats and prairie chickens, ami the pert robin who twirls his notes from the pine branches. Here, also, comes the chinook wind like a special messenger from the regions of upper air, diffusing its balmy presence over the plains, the name great equalizer of heat and cold for summer and winter. Sometimes in summer it blows hard and cold, but is often zephyred and comes soughing through the pine leaves with a weird song, relieved only by the rustling leaves of the aspen a...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL FAPES OF CITT AUD COUNTY. Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash iztfrton Territory. Beautiful Things. Beautiful faces are those that wear- It matters little If dark or fair- Whole-souled honesty printed there. Beautiful eyes are those that show. Like crystal panes where hearth-fires glow, Beautiful thoughts that burn below. Beautiful lips are those whose words Leap from the heart like songs of birds, Yet whose utterance prudence girds. Beautiful hands are those that do Work that is earnest and brave and true. Moment by moment, the long day through.

Hungarian Grass. The following, by a correspondent of the Western Farm Journal, will answer some questions asked by our readers con cerning this grass. We think a little heavier seeding than he proposes woulJ produce a finer crop of hay: "Having grown it for the past eighteen years, I am consequently a friend to Hungarian hay. It stands with me as No. 1 for cattle, old or young. Nothing in the West is equal to it for calves or sheep, if properly handled, cut in proper time and cured properly. The preparation of the soil is one pre requisite for a good crop. To secure the most satisfactory re sults the ground should be plowed in the spring, and cross-plowed just before seed ing. That time with me is from the first to the tenth of June. After being croßß-plowed the ground should be well harrowed. If the twice plowing and harrowing are well done a good Beed bed is provided for the seed. Sow one-half bushel of good seed to an acre if for hay, if sown for seed one-third of a bushel. As t...

The Independent. THURSDAY, JULY 12. 1877. Touring in Klickitat aud Yakima. Last week when we closed the story of our trip, we left the reader at the Pine Creek Ranch, in Klickitat Coun ty. Pine Creek is so called because in its winding way down atrong the mountains, its banks and the sloping hillsides adjacent, are covered with a luxurient growth of pine timber. This pine is of the yellow variety hand gome to look at, makes good wood, and now and then a tree can be found that nature has not so twisted as to make it impracticable to split it into fence rails. The crickets ravaged this section of country in the spring. They came in a mighty drove and ate up people's gardens and injured the bunch grass, and so filled up Pine Creek with their clumsy bodies as, at one time, to make it seem necessary for the residents on the creek to vacate their premises, but fortunately a heavy rain flooded the creek, sluiced out the masses of dead and dying crickets and the people were, we trust, duly ...

The Wife's Reverie. 0 Heart of mine, is our estate, - Our sweet estate—of joy assurtd? It came so slow, it, came so late, Bought by such bitter pains endured; Dare we forget these sorrows sore, And think that they will come no more? With tearful eyes I scan my face. And doubt how tic can tind it fair; Wistful, 1 watch each charm and grace I see that other women wear; Of all the secrets of love's lore, I know hut one, to love him mote! I see each day, he grows more wise, His life is broader far than mine; I must be lacking in his eyes, In many things where others shine. O, Heart! can we this loss restore To him, by simply loving more V I often see upon his brow, A look half tender and half stern; His thoughts are far away, I know; To fathom them I vainly yearn; But nought is ours which went before; O Heart! we cau but love him more' I sometimes think that lie had loved An older, deeper love, apart From this which later feebler moved His soul to mine. 0 Heart! O Heart! What can we do?...

Rubinstein. Anton Rubinstein is the Salvini of the piano. Horsed on that ungainly instru ment, he charges victorious through space and time; the world crackles with the noise of enthusiastic hands; nightly the artist strikes with sublime head some one or other set of stars. All who have seen him and heard him must retain the facts of his conformation, his appearance, his personality. The tall, gaunt figure; the ample fall, leonine and lustreless, of strong black hair; the immovable mask, yellow and course, like a new potato or an old marble; the long eyes, heavy of lid and bare of brow; the strange forehead, narrowed abnormally and deceptively by the broad and high cheek-bones on which it is based; the bull throat and great hairless chin; the uncouth and hurried gesture of saluta tion, with dangling arms and body bend ing from the shoulders—all these are fa miliar enough. In that slouching even ing dress, so full of semi-clerical effects, the white tie looking curiously dirty and gr...

Have you ever caught the secret Which the leaves for ever sing, Through each balmy day of summer, When the birds are ou the wing? Have you listened to their lauguage, And their laughter, soft and 9weet? Have you watched their shining glances Through the noontide's glowing heat? Oh! they make such merry music, Gayly dancing in the breeze, Every tiny leaf a-tremble On the solemu old oak trees, That you know some happy secret Must have stirred each winsome elf To those bursts of fairy laughter, Aud you fairly laugh yourself! Up and down they dance and quiver, Back and forth they sing In glee. While the whistling winds still louder Pipe their merry minstrelsy. All along the woodland borders, Past the reapers and their sheaves, Still the rippling music greets you, Of the laughter of the leaves. Ah! 'tis sure some lover's secret Which they whisper day by day; ...

Pure Water for Stock. Prof. Law, in a lecture on animal par asites delivered before the Farmers' Club of Itbica, N. V., a condensed report of which we find in the Country Gentleman, stated that intestinal worms might fiud ingress to the auimal through drinking impure water. These animals, known as pin worms, (Scieroftornum equinum and ti. tetracan thum, aud Oxyuris curvula and 0. vivi para) y and which are only an inch or two in longth, attack the mucous membranes, and bore their way into them, obstructing circulation, causing inflammation, and producing cramps, colics aud indiges tion. Other species attack swine, sheep aud poultry. Largely magnified repre sentations of their eggs were represeuted by charts. These eygs are swallowed by the animals iv drinking impure water, and beuce the importance of providing that which is pure aud free from them. The eggs will remain uninjured for a year, aud may be carried miles in streams and then be swallowed and hatch in the stomach and intest...

The Independent. THURSDAY, JULY 19, l±T>. Touring in Klickitat and Yakima. The log cabin at Pine Creek was frequent ly the scene of a merry gathering during the stay of oar party. When the cattle drivers had corns home, the chores done and the evening meaL with its after work of dish washing out of the way, tables and chairs were put one side, snd with good natured Ban Burch as the Knight of the Bow, the pine board floor rattled with the tripping of merry feet to the measures of a lively reel. Here were no heated rooms and dazzling lights, no dressing to death, no practice of giddy arts, no late hours with their after claps of headache or heartache, but serene and joyful for an hour or two in the compan ionship of friends, the time spiced and en livened with gay music, the inuocent amuse ment was consistent with the primitive sur roundings, and added much to the pleasure of our sojourn. At such times jokes were free, and though often of a practical nature, they were always given ...

V Bird Story by Thomas Edward. In tbe many long years that Thomas Edward spent in intimate fellowship with animate nature, he was a witness ot man ifold curious incidents happening in the history of birds and beasts, which he nar rates in a spirited and picturesque man ner. Among such anecdotes which Mr. Smiles has introduced into Edward's bi ography, one of the most interesting is that illustrating the surprising degree of feeling which the tern is capable of en tertaining. Edward was, one afternoon in August, watching tlie evolutions of a flock of these birds, which were engaged in fishing in the Fryth of Boyndie. He was seeking an opportunity to bag one of the beautiful creatures, when, as if in answer to his desire, a noble specimen directed its course to the shore, fishing all the way as it came. In the midst of a vivid description of the habits of the bird in pursuit of its prey, Edward relates — "Once more he soars aloft ou lively wing, aud, having attained a certain ele vati...
