Empty Hands. BY MRS. M ETTA S. HKNMON. Fear not, 0 hand* grown weary, That MM no good attained — With only Mending lingers And palms so torn und stained You've sought the deeps for treasures That vanished into air; Tou have gathered only ashes From fruit that sasesad so fair. You've climbed the highest mountain For the bloom you thought it bore. And found but a scentless blossom Faded forevermoi c. You've tried within the valley The golden grain to bind. And wept to know your hard-won sheaves Were only lares entwined. You've roamed through tangled fores :s For some sweet singer's home. Only to find it empty — Tho sweet-voiced siugor.rtotcn. You've sought for fruit and blossom. For bird and golden grain, And you've but torn and empty hand. For years of toil and pain. Hut know, O l ands grown weary, That hold no well-earned alms, The King, when he seeks His nerib ra, Will look for deip seer red palms. A Story of the Border. Leslie C tchrane was only twenty years old when he became a p...

The Cost of a King. The Italian Parliament has been re cently occupied with the discussion of the delicate subject of the King's income. Tbe Ministry, has preseuted a bill to raise the sum from twelve to fourteen million francs annually, three millions of which are for the King's personal expenses. One would think that six hundred thousand dollars was a liberal annual allowance, but it seems that the head of this nation feels the want of money as much as any of bis subjects. When we remember that bis expen ditures are very great und most be pro portioned to those of the other monaichs of Europe; that bis gifts and his char ities are made in sums adapted to the magnificence iv which he lives, and that be has au army of servants and depend ents, the wonder disappears, aud we are only surprised that be can live ou so lit tle. Mosaic tables aud pictures that cost tweuty or thirty thousand dollars; sets of jewelry at sixteen thousand dollars each; one hundred and fifty watches at once fo...

A Vnique Poem. Rev. YV. S. Ralph, of Columbus, Ohio, has ' a unique poem in Harper' M othly, • which he writes the foiluwinj;interesting history: Br. H anson:— * * * It relates to an actual occurrence that took place between the family of Mrs. R . and that oi one of their neighbors, a Mr Blair, and to Mrs. Blairs saying ever alter that the should »ever be sat is tied with the music ot heaven unless there was whist ling there. The event occurred Bear JocvMville, Mieh.. and "Josie" ; lives now in Beckeilridfle, Mo., and it ;.•> a little funny that it should have been printed immediately on its appearance by the papers iv those places Without ihe editors' knowing . anything about the circumstances.

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITT AND COUHTY. Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. The Boy that Langhs. I know a funny little boy, The happiest ever born; His face is like a beam of joy, Although his clothes are torn. I saw him tumble on his nose, And waited for a groan; But how he laughed! Do you suppose He struck his funny boner There's sunshine in each word he speaks, His laugh is something grand; Its ripples overrun his cheeks, Like waves on snowy sand. He laughs the moment he awakes, And till the day is done; The schoolroom for a joke he takes, His lessOns are but fun. No matter how the day may go, Tou cannot make him cry; He's worth a dozen boys I know, Who pout and mope and sigh. — George Cooper. A Winter in the Polar Region. The Rev. Charles E. HedsoD, chaplain of the Arctic exploring vessel Ditcowry, has written an account of the voyage, from which the following is an extract: "When the sea was completely frozen over the sleighing parties set out on t...

The Independent Farmer. The following is the experience of a thorough farmer, one who farms to profit. He says, "I have farmed thirty years, and always had a large family, and kept a large stock, but I never yet bought a bushel of corn, except for seed, aud but one barrel of flour. Possibly at some times I would have made money by doing bo, but you see when fall comes I have forty bushels of wheat in my bins and two hundred bushels of corn iv my corn barn, and then I haven't got to keep looking around all winter to see where I am going to get the money to pay my meal and flour bills with; and, furthermore, I feel better to be independ ent. I can show you a neighbor who thinks he can't afford to raise wheat er corn, and who has not now a bushel of either. He wdll tell you that he raised other crops in the place of them, but be fore he gets through will probably groan over the war in Europe, which has lifted the price of graiu; and I doubt mightily whether he don't owe at the store fo...

"Broken Links." Tell me not tbe ebaiu is broken. Golden links of kindred ties. While it ever binds us nearer To our loved ones in the skies: For 'Us like the mystic cable, Slumbering 'neath the ocean's roar, HUI from sight, yet ever joining Closely, strangely, shore to shore. Only shifting, never broken. Is the chain forever bright; Links, though darkened to our vision. Gleam with a celestial light; While from earth we glance along it, Ruptured seems the golden line; Lookiug from the gates eternal. Links imsevered softly shine. Yes, we count them sadly over, One by one, the links, we say, How they're breaking ever from us. How they're passing all away; Only changing are our loved ones. Only goue from eurth away ; Dwell they not, more dear than ever, lv our hearts from day to day'- Kindred ties, with links eternal, Wrought and woven at our birtb, Were they only made to bind us While we linger here on earth! Tell me not the. chain is broker.. For I only look the more. As my loved ones...

Kitchen Vegetables. In England, kitchen vegetables were very scarce until the end of the sixteenth century. No salads, carrots, turnips or other succulent roots were, cultivated by tbe inhabitants of Great Britain till the close of the reign of Henry VIII. Po tatoes and yams were introduced later. Up to that time the little they had was imported from Flanders and Holland. Our ancestors in the old country had winter-cresses and water-cresses, and used a variety ot' the Smyrnium instead of celery, together with the rampion and the rocket. Goose-foot or pig- wood, and sprout-kales were used instead of greens, and they put tbe young leaves and the pretty blue flowers of the borage into their tankards. They had very few fruits, and those not very good—gooseberries, currants, strawberries, apples, pears and cherries. The latter were bad, though they were introduced from Italy, aud planted as early as the year 800, A. I), j They resembled our wild cherry, though tbey were larger and more t...

A Correction. Speaking of ths Dalles City contest with the Method.3l Missiona- ety, the "Moun-1 taineer"refers tothc Miss r:iClaim as follows: The Catholic Mission at Vancouver, W. T., have offered to settle for from ?3 to $16 per lot, which appears reasonable, while our "poor unfortunates" have offered from $200 to $400 per lot and their oiler is called "paltry/ We have made inquiry and do not find that the Catholic Mission ever made any such offer, or any offer whatever to settle with the people of Vancouver. In some instances parties have bought off the Misaion Claim, but the price paid lias generally approximated closely to the value of the premises so bought. | The "Mountaineer" must remember that greed and the love of gain are the same the world over. Church societies, as such, are oa the same par with other societies and or ganizations composed of men, and all these are what the individual members make them. The average man will take all he can get, his j only concern being t...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AUD COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. *. Diffidence. Tm afther axin', Biddy dear—" And here he paused a while To fringe his words the merest mite With something of a smile, A smile that found its image In a face of beauteous mold, Whose liquid eyes were peeping From a broidery of gold. "I've come to ax ye, Biddy dear, If—" then he stopped again, As if his heart had bubbled o'er And overflowed his brain; His lips were twitching nervously O'er what they had to tell, And timed their quavers with the eyes That gently rose and fell. "I've come—" and then he took her hands, And held them in his own, "To ax—" and then he watched the buds That on her cheeks had blown, "Me purty dear—" and then he heard The throbbing of her heart, That told how love had entered in And claimed its very part. "Och! don't be tazin' me," said she, With just the faintest sigh, "I've sinse enough to see you've come, But what's the rayson why?" "To ...

License Laws in New York. The temperance pfople have been very active in their efforts to have the liquor laws enforced, and in Brooklyn it is said they have been successful in reducing the number of saloons by several hundred. In this city the Rev. Dr. Howard Crosby, as president of the Society for the Pre vention of Crime, is actively engaged in the endeavor to lessen the number of sa loons, by compelling those who are de termined to sell liquor to comply with the terms of the law, which requires them to keep an inn with at least three beds. The consequeuce will be that many will give up the business, and many others will cause a temporary increase in the bed and bedstead business. In the opin ion of ex-Judge Culver, there are enough laws against rum-shops. What is needed is the enforcement of them. There had not been, he said, a legal license granted in the last seven years. The Society re ceives many letters calling its attention to abu-es of one kindor another. Among them is on...

Tho Character of Mahomet. In forbidding tbe use of wine, Ma homet denied them a gratification for ys .ich they had no special craving; but he not only permitted, he gave, a divine sanction to the unbridled indulgence of their characteristic vices. The Arab in herited a supreme contempt for human life; Mahomet made bim gratify it to the top of his bent, on the sole Condition that tbe life sacrificed should not be that of Mussulman. The Arab was the most vain-glorious of human beings; Mahomet told him that he had a divine right to his self-conceit, since it was written in the Book of Fate that the Arab race was the predestined ruler of the world and heir to all ages. The Arab was proud of bis language. Mahomet said that it was the language of heaven, ami was conse q icntly so sacred that its use was forbid den to all but the True Believers. The Arab was an inveterate freebooter; Ma homet opened up to him an endless vista of predatory warfare, with spoils iv abundance, of all that coul...
