\ ancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AMD COU¥TT. Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. Love's Reveille. Love in lethargy once slept A week without waking; And day and night his mother wept As if her heart were breaking. The graces pinched the boy in vain: He never felt their stinglngs; They sang to him a Paphian strain; He sleeps through all their singings. Tc Jove at length the goddess soared, Most miserably crying: "Oh, save my son, heaven's mighty Lord! The God of love is dying!" "To earth," said Jove, "once more repair, And cease your cries aud weeping; A friendly leech will meet you there, Who'll cure love's oversleeping." Venus flew back; the boj was free; For Jove, on special mission, Had sent him green-eyed jealousy, Juno's own state physician. The cure, much worse than the disease, Olympus shook with laughter; For love was never yet at ease, And never slumbered after. Seveuteen-Year Visitors. New Jersey people are not usually lacking in hospitality, but ...

Points in Breeding Poultry. Every variety has some one point or points which demand long breed ing and patience to acquire, aud on these should attention first be fixed, and kept there, gradually giving attention to others, not hy turns, but as fast and no faster than the increased number of birds are good in the first point, and therefore admissible to breed from, enable selec tion for the second and subsequent points to be made. In this way every year will show a steady improvement in the pro portion of birds tit for exhibition, and after the tirst two seasons that improve ment will be so rapid as to be almost be yond belief. One thing, however, is obvious. The best birds, from the breeding point of view, must never be sold, but kept for the breeding yard, for a man cannot reason ably expect to make any marked progress who is constantly selling what represents neaaly all the ground he has gained. And on the average this will not be found to sacrifice eveu in the shape of sales, si...

Tlie Independent. THURSDAY, JULY 20,1877. The Riots. The great riots which have been in progress in the East during the week have been the all-absorbing theme of conversation and the burden of the telegraphic dispatches. It originated in a strike for higher wages by rail road employes, and in Pittsburg, Bal timore, Chicago, Cincinnati aud other cities, has extended to take in nearly all trades union. The maddened mobs have, in some localities, demor alized travel, suspended business, de stroyed millions of dollars worth of property, and taken several hundred lives. The strike for higher wages has degenerated into a mob, and not only the trades union men, but the lowest roughs to be found in eastern cities, are availing themselves of the opportunity for lawless raiding and plunder. It is estimated that over 350 lives have been lost in the various conflicts of the rioters with the author* ities, the military and citizens endea voring to preserve the peace and pro tect property. Procla...

When Wheat is Green. When wheat is green in furrowed fields. And forest lanes are lined with leaves, And passion unto pleading yields, And every matcless maiden grieves For lark of love, at such a time My pleasure will be in its prime. The clouds that keep away the sun, And cover up the moon at night. Before the strong March wind will run, And leave the heavens blue and bright, The sun will shine upon the sea— The moon will light the wood for me. And then, ah, then! Oh, dearest days! Laburnum branches, tbiek with bloom, Will throw their gold garden ways. And kiss the windows of my room; And then the day! How will it be To line in such felicity f My brow with blossoms will be bound, Aud from my fears I shall be free; Oh, tardy time, bring quickly round The merriest month of all for me! That I may hear the church-boys sing, And on my finger see the ring! The Boy Hero. It was ou Saturday morning,the fifteenth ot* DecemlKT, that little Paul Lavere sat by a low, smouldering fire in the o...

A Rnssian Land-Holder of the Old Regime. The following extract from Tourgue neffs story, "The Nobleman of the Steppe," in Scribner, is quite in keeping with recent accounts of the improvidence and bigotry of Russian noblemen of the last generation: Pantalei Jeretneitsch's father had re ceived his estate in a broken-down con dition. In his turn he had lived in a free and ea*y way, and at his death had left to his only son and heir, Pantalei, the mortgaged village of Bessonovo, with thirty-three male and seventy-six female serfs, and fourteen and one-eighth desso tinesof badly located land in the wilder ness of Kolobrod; moreover, no deed of this tract was found among the papers of the deceased. He had, it must be admit ted, succeeded in ruining himself in the most singular manner. According to his views, a nobleman ought to have nothing to do with tradesmen, bourgeois, and "rascals" of that stripe. In his house he established work-shops for mechanics of all kinds. "That is more prope...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITT AND COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. Such Is Life. Oh, the hurry and the worry Of this ever changing life, Pushing, crowding in the struggle, Fainting, falling 'mid the strife. Ob, tbe sighing and the weeping In the sad and broken homes, Where are hearts that once were joyful, New to them no gladness comes. Ob, the watching and the waiting For the brighter days to dawn, For the dark and weary shadows, To give place to beauteous morn. Oh, the hoping and the wishing ' For the storms to pass away, When the suu in all his splendor, Ushers in the new-born day. Oh, the dreaming and the waking, As on wings of time we're borne, Dream, that loved ones still are near us, Wake, to struggle on alone.

Use the Whole Farm. Farming must be conducted on busi ness principles or it cannot be successful. The first endeavor of a shrewd business man is to keep all his capital profitably employed. He is not satisfied to make large profits on a part while the greater portion is lying idle, nor will he allow lack of care or capital to rob him of profits which he might otherwise have made. Too many farmers, on the con trary, think they are doing well when they make large profits ou one or two •crops, or fields, though other parts of their farm may not be paying anything. Often on the cultivated parts of a farm the results are satisfactory enough, if it were not that these were so small as not to pay necessary expenses of conducting it. The farmer (finds himself as badly off as the merchant who made a disastrous failure while sel ling all his goods at one hundred per cent, profit. The explanation is, that the mer chant kept a peanut stand and his receipts wereonly fifty cents per day. The twen...

Tlie Independent. THURSDAY, AUGUST -2, 1677. The Indian Policy. The Indian is the grext American elephant of this country. The vexed question, "What shall vre do with hint!" is constantly recurring. Every year some new phase of this question is presented, and the solution always seems difficult. One policy and another has been tried but as yet, if we may judge of the fruits of these poli cies, the true one has not yet been adopted. The nation is gradually learning by experience, that, to treat its Indians like a lot of children, by humoring them in their whims or cajol ing them with presents and fair words, or temporizing until everybody, even the Indians themselves, is out of pa tience, is not the true policy. Judi cious efforts to civilize them are wise and generous steps, and the peace poli cy, so far as it is concerned in this, cause, is to be commended; but when it introduces, among those who are appointed to deal with the Indians, a sickly sentimentalism averse to that firm au...

A Woman's Hand. Only a little, soft, white thing, Made for wearing the costly ring; Made for flirting the dainty fan As only the belle of the season can; Made for the stolen pressure or kiss (Long Branch fashion), raising to bliss. By merely tho touch of fingers white. Her escort down by the beach that nigh! Made for a "pri/.e" for the highest bic., (Aud uuder the rose a thorn lies hid>— A thing which the honest summer sun Has taught his honest beams to shun, Lest freckle or tan its beauty spoil, And make it too near a hand of toil. Instead of only a dainty thing, Madefor ease and the diamond ring. Only a sunburned, useful thing. To which the hearts of the needy cling; To which they turn who have learned *-he worth Of a womau's hand on this weary earth; Made for healing, lor smoothing o'er The hearts of those who are faint and sore; Made for honest work each day, For driving the shadows of life away; For holding the "cup of water" to all Who, faint and thirsty,for succor call; Ma...

The Steppes and Oases of Central Asia. The steppes are the bottoms of ancient seas which once rolled over a large por tion of the continent of Asia, and which, when swept by storms, rise in tumult uous waves, not of water, but of saud, the particles of which might be likened to spray, but that they burn like sparks of fire. The terror inspired by these storms is such as to deter even tbe most adventurous merchants from traversing the steppes in summer, unless under the most pressing necessity. The aspect, when covered with snow, is described as strangely awful and oppressive, exhib iting the expanse of the ocean without its animation, and the solitude of the Arctic regions without tbeir sublimity. Woe to the traveller who is overtaken by a snow storm in the steppes; his doom is inevitable, and tbe bodies of troops which bave essayed the perilous task of marching across tbe steppas in winter bave been overtaken and overwhelming by a tempest of snow. Dreary as are the steppes in winte...

Brief Mention. J. G. Blake, Quartermaster's Clerk, has gone again to Lewiston. Mr. Alfred Holman, Editor of the Bee, gave us a call la t Friday. He spent the day exploring in the interior of this county. We regret to announce the poor health of Mr. T. J. Thornton, one of our fellow townsmen. He is troubled with that dread disease, dyspepsia.

Vaneouyer Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AlfD COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County. Wash ington Territory. Hearkening for His Step. BY NATHAN D> CKXKR. She hearkens for his step In the hush of her lonely room, Yet starts with dread at each echoing tread That sounds from the outer gloom- As she rocks the cradle near With a tremulous hand and slow. "Ah, Heaven!" she sighs; "but the night is drear With the thoughts of long ago." She thinks of the rosy time, In the not so long agone, When she hearkened for the same swift tread With a heart like a summer dawn. How it spurned the pebble and shell— How it gamboled as it drew near! How her heart stood still as its music fell On her bowed and listening ear! Stood still, but not as now With doubt and misgiving—Hark! There it comes at last, now slow, now fast, And stumbling along the dark, She seizes the sleeping child, And gathers it to her breast- No; he's only merry, not bad and wild, And his greeting's a tipsy jest. But oh! when her tear...

Our Wool (Interests. From Messrs. E. Grisar & Co's report for six months ending July Ist, 1877, we take the following: The opening of this year had a most discouraging outlook for California wool growers; at home on the one hand they had every reason to dread a very scanty rain-fall, from which must result severe loss among their sheep, while on the other hand, to add to this, the Eastern markets were overstocked with fall wools, which could only be disposed of at prices lower than had ever been taken in late years. There was also an excep tionally large supply in this market. During the month of January the stock here was partially reduced by shipments on owners' account, and in February aud March a demand sprung up, which had the effect of clearing off most of the wools; at the same time the supply iv the East* crn markets went rapidly into consump tion. Contrary to general expectations, the market for spring wools opened at high rates compared with prices ruling the preceding...

Hood River is a small tributary to the Columbia, its mouth being about 20 miles weal from Dalles City and 24 miles from the Cascades, and is in the state of Oregon. It takes its name from that old white mountain of the Cascade range, whose perpetu al snows in summer supplies the stream with its almost milky white water. Its general course is north easterly, following a valley or depres sion in the mountains, which is sup posed to be the track of an immense glacier which had its flow hen in ages when, possibly,even the dashings'of the lordly Columbia had net yet bro ken the stillness of this western world. Hood River, at this season of the year, has a g ibd supply of snow water, whitened with the volcanic ashes .of the mountain until it resem bles, somewhat, the preparation of chalk and water supplied at hotel ta...
