Yanconver Independent OFFICIAL PAPIR OF CITY AMD COUITY VueouTtr, Clark* County. Wash ington Territory. The Baby for Me. I have heard about babies angelic, With heavenly look in their eyes, And hair like the sunbeams of morning When first they appear In the skies; And smiles like the smiles of a cherub, And mouths like the buds of a rose, And themselves like the lilies and daisies And every sweet flower that grows. My baby's the jolliest baby- That any one ever did see; There's nothing angelic about him, But he's the right baby for me! His smile's not all like a cherub's, But rather a comical grin; And his hair—well, it favors the sunbeams, When sunbeams are wondrously thin. His eyes, though they're blue, like the heavens, Are remarkably earthly with fun; And his mouth's rather large for a rose-bud Unless 'twere a half open one. His hands don't resemble a fairy's In the least. They're a strong little pair, As you'd think, I am sure, if he'd got you, As oft he gets me—by the hair! An...

Mangel Wnrzel Beets. I wish to describe how I raise this very valuable root crop, and give a few reasons why I adopt the course of culture I have leaving room for each reader "to think their own thought" in the matter, and follow or not, as they see cause. I till a farm garden, a single acre of good clay loam, which descends five feet, in a hundred, and it is moderately dressed with stable manure in the spring by spreading out well and ploughing in five or six inches deep. The dressing gets a coat of air-slaked lime immedi ately before turning under. I also use bone flour and unleached wood ashes on the surface before I harrow or smooth off. For beets, renew the process, bone and ashes first, and the lime last, before harrowing; then smooth with a drag and back of the harrow through which the teeth project one inch. Then the whole is hand-raked and leveled. My best bed is 180 feet long and 23 feet wide, one-twelfth of an acre, aud has eleven drills, 160 feet long aud two feet apart—...

Literary Ambition. Stage-struck young men and women are well-understood incidents of modern society. They are impressible young people who have acquired a fondness for the theater, and perhaps cherish a belief that they resemble some popular actor. Nowadays it is Booth whose style is most affected. You may have seen several young men who, it might be said, look more like Booth than he does himself, es pecially since he has been wearing his hair shorter. Or perhaps the stage-mani ac is the product of private theatricals, or of the declamation class, or of the de bating society. These amiable youths sometimes hire a hall or a provincial the ater, and come out as Hamlet, for one night only. * Sometimes they go on the regular stage in a subordinate capacity, and soon become disillusionized, as it is called. The stage-struck youth is more easily cured of his folly thao the youth who is, as you may say, stage-struck for litera ture or for painting. 1 wonder whether leading actors are not ...

A True Bear Story. A large part of Michigan is still new, and is covered with forests, among which are scattered the log cabins of tbe hardy pioneers. Game of various kinds abound. The lugubrious howl of the wolf is some times heard, calling up in imagination of the startled listener pictures of danger, which, it must be confessed, have very little foundation in reality. Not unfre quently, at certain seasons, bears come out of the deeper recesses of the forest, affording the opportunity of an exciting and usually unsuccessful chase, but sel dom doing any damage more serious than lifting a fat pig out of the sty and taking a huge mouthful or two out of his back. A few years ago a curious event hap pened in connection with the visit of a bear to the settlements in Mason county, not far from the shore of Lake Michigan. In that region are extensive tracts of open pine woods, in which a moderately luxuriant growth of wild grass, not un like some of the famous grasses of the Western prair...

The Independent. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1577. New States. The Oregcmian criticizes the ambi tion of Washington .Territory to be -enrolled among the sisterhood of States. Refers to the time when Or egon was admitted into the Union, and calls it a job put up by the poli ticians, but does not go on to say, as in candor it should, that such admis sion was, and has continued to be, a great benefit to that State, and no detriment whatever to other States iv the Union. Why should not Wash ington Territory seek admission as well as Oregon? There are quite as many, if not more, people here now than there were in Oregon when that State was admitted; there is as much whealth here as there was in Oregon at that time, and quite as many other reasons in favor of Washington Ter ritory as there were in favor of Ore gon. Oregon was benefitted by the change, and no evil done to the coun try at large, why may not Washing ton emulate the ambition of Oregon to become a State? In the policy of the gover...

Diseases of Sheep. The Journal of Agriculture gives the following as the causes and cure for the more terrible diseases of sheep: 1. Rot—Caused by feeding on wet pas tures. The animal may die almost im mediately, or continue declining from three to six months. Dullness, loss of condition, and paleness of the mucous membranes are symptoms of the disease, followed by loss of wool and a yellow or blotched appearance of the skin. Put tbe sheep on dry pasture, and give abundance of clean salt to effect a cure. The dis ease is not infectious, but it is better, if possible, to separate tbe sick from tbe well. 2. Seab —A cutaneous disease which frequently affects entire flocks — some what similar to the mange in dogs or hogs—caused by a small insect. The sheep will give evidence of the presence of scab by rubbing against posts, trees, stones, etc., and unless relieved soon die. As soon as the disease is discovered in the flock, shear closely, and dip each an imal in a strong solution of tob...

Southdown Sheep. To Mr. Wim.iam Cisco, White River, Kings Co., Washington Territory:—ln reply to your query about Southdown Bheep--it is certain the pure-breds are the best mutton in the world, without any exception, and the other Down sheep, which have been produced by crosses with other breeds, are also valuable, bat they are one or two degrees removed from the peculiar fiavor of the Southdowns, which good judges among mutton-eating communities pronounce to be unrivaled. Probably all this exquisite taste and in comparable flavor is lost on a population not accustomed to having their meat cooked iv the same way as those do who so highly appreciate pure Southdown mutton. The Lincoln!, Cotswolds and Leicesters are all much larger sheep and shear much heavier fleeces, and in this country, where tho primcst meat is not paid for in proportion to its tine quality, the meat from these heavier frames is thought by a great many to bo equal to any either. Mr. Cisco should obtaiu, through som...
