Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OP CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. A Modern Engagement. Seens—hotel piazza. Moon is shining bright; Time—about eleven, Of a summer night. Dramatis pertotxw — Maiden of the day, And a college student, Handsome, wllty, gay. Object—a flirtation; Hours to beguile; Reason—time is heavy, And to be in style. So they sit together, In a quiet nook; Compliments exchanging, She with downward look. Till ke—blame the moonlight- Calls her his adored; She—the moonlight also— Takes him at his word. So their troth is plighted, Lightly woven strand. Holding them united As a rope of sand. Carelessly they wear it For a month or more; Then their chain is broken, All is as before. Both of them delighted To be free again; Each has learned the lesson, Love is hard to feign. Among the Scottish Hills. In fome parts of Scotland there are a gTeat many high hills or mountains, crowded together, only divided from each other by deep valleys. Th...

For the Ladies. Indians never kiss their wives; kissing is one of the Christian graces. White is again in favor for ball toi lettes, especially for young ladies. Ladies, when driving, have a bow of blue or cardinal libbon fastened to the whip. If doctors keep on with their warnings against baby-kissing, lots and lots of big girls will be driven to kiss babies older grown. Since the doctors began to agree that tight-lHcing didn't hurt women a bit, but had a tendency to make them healthy, you can't hardly find a pinched waist in a day's travel. An Erie Railway conductor seized a woman's baby when she wouldn't pay her fare, but she was so glad to get rid of the child that he paid her two dollars to take it back. An exchange says: "Girls, if you knew how men disliked slovenliness in women jou would keep yourselves asneataswax all the time." Are men worth taking all that trouble for?" Visitor —"I see you have a new girl." Housekeeper—"l took her a week on trial." Visitor —"And how do you...

The Independent. LOCAL. New Safe.—Dr. David Wall, proprietor of the Vancouver Druj Store, received per steamer Vancouver last Monday evening, a new safe. It weighs is 1,800 pounds and was shipped from Cincinnati, Ohio. Grain Crop Lost.—We are : vformed that J. T. Lovelace has 200 acres of wheat still standing iv the fields on Mill Plain, 50 a?res of which are cut and shocked. Mr. Lovelace postponed too long the cutting of this grain, and now it is feared the whole crop will be lost. He has sustained a similar loss the two preceding years. Arm Broken.—One day last week Mr. G. T. Lambert, who lives about one half a mile bulow town, had tlie misfortune to break, his right arm just below the elbow. At the tim j of the accident ho was working about some trees; one of the props falling, struck him ou the arm. The blow rendered htm insensible for som-j time.

Seraphina's Sister Jaue. Soraphina loves me dearly; I love Seraphina, too, Oh, her form's divine (or nearly) That's of course 'twixt me and yon. Lots of blisses Fate has sent us, And we'd really not complain. But for one who will tormeut u«- Seraphina's sister Jane! Small is Seraphina's sister, Six years old, or thereabouts; But, by jingo! she's a "twister," Full of noise and tiny shouts. Often when I'd gently whisper, Scraphina's kiss to gain, In runs that iutrudiug lisper Seraphina's sister Jane! When we iv the garden wander, Just to view the plants you know, As our words are getting fonder, And my loved one listens —lo! In she rushes, hair a tangle, Like a doll that's gone insane; Then I feci I'd like to strangle Seraphina's sister Jane! When I next behold her figure, At her 1 will make a spriug, And I'll say: "When you get bigger, You won't like this sort of thing! 4Jourting has a brief existence— Don't you iuterrupt again, "When I'm here just keep your distance, deraphina'ssist...

The Happy Holiday. Happiness on Christmas day is both a tradition and a habit. Of old, when men were rougher than they nre now,and enjoy ment was of a more boisterous sort than it is in our time, it was the custom to cultivate merriment more than now, and we have a survival of the old notion of happiness iv the universal Christinas sal utation which is still in use among us; but whether we are literally "merry" or not, there are very few tolerably well consti tuted persons who fail to draw some kiud of genuine happiness from the day of our great feast. We do good deeds on that day for one thing, and the doing brings delight. We remember the poor and endeavor in some way to brighten the day for them; we give gifts to our friends and have joy in the giving; we warm our hearts iv the glow of the Christmas fires, aud there is comfort in such warmth. The traditions of the tlay are all unselfish, and even without in ten ling it we grow generous at this season, making ourselves happy in tr...

The Profit From liood Stock. Now for a practical illustration right at hand. In my neighborhood two fanners fattened li> head of cat tie each. One sold his cattle for 14.50 per hundred pounds, the other for *d. The former obtained *1, ."27 per he id, averaging 1,050 pounds, and the lot brought $75b. The other rot brought $40 per head, averaging 1,000 pounds, or 50 pounds less per steer, amount ing to $Lo-40, a difference of $110 in favor of the heavy lot. The 50 pounds less at 4 cents per pound, amounts to $■* per head, but the extra fifty pounds which the owner received on the first lot amounted to 144 cents per pound, or in other words, the extra 50 pounds brought him $7.25 per head over his neighbor's lot. Thus he pocketed $5.- --25 per head for the same weight of beef because he obtained 50 cents per 100 on the weight of the whole lot. The question arises, how can we gain the e.\tra 50 pounds of beef per bead to secure the 50 cents per 100 o:i the aggregate weight? It will be...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITT AND COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. My Barefoot Boy. BY E. E. BKOWX. Skipping alontr through the narrow street Of a country village quaint and neat, With torn hat pushed from a freckled face, And every motion a wave of grace; With heart brimful of untainted joy, Who is more blest than ray barefoot boy? See the clouds of dust that are gathering fast Round the little form, as it hurried past, Hiding the delicate limbs from view, Far more than the tattered garments do. Yet poverty cannot his peace destroy— Ah! who is so rich as my barefoot boy? Now he has mounted a wayside gate, And ie shouting his call to some far-off mate; With the air of a leader he issues commands, Using for trumpet his sunburnt hands. Now holding to view some newly-bought toy- Proud as a king is my barefoot buy. Earnest of purpose, and strong of limb, What is the pomp of the world to him* Scarcely deigning to turn his eye Toward the rich man's co...

Artichokes for Live Stock. Mr. E. F. Brockway of Washington •county, lowa, writes to the Patrons Helper on this subject as follows: "Some time last spring one of your subscribers, writing for your paper on the subject of "Artichokes for hogs," suggested that some one that was able to do so would try the experiment aud re port. At that time I had planted seven acres, intending them for my Poland China pigs, of which I am raising 150. Although this is ouly the second year I have planted, I no longer consider it an experiment. Three of my neighbors have raised them; one of them several years rather exteusively, and it was his success that induced me to try it. He is one of our most reliable men, and says he considers oue acre of artichokes equal to ten acres of corn; he has raised 170 pigs this summer, aud has scarcely had any loss of pigs or trouble with his sows, and he thinks much of his good luck due to his fields of artichokes. I would have plauted a year or two sooner, but I fear...

The Independent, THURSDAY, OCToBKU 1\ 1677. "Not ft (iood Selection." Such is the head which our neigh bor of the Oreyonian has seen tit to place over an associated press dis patch from Washington, which an- : nounces that General Harlan, of Ken tucky, will probably be appointed to the vacancy on the supreme bench. Iv venturing- the opinion that the ap pointment of lion. John M. Harlan is "not a good selection," the is probably following the advice once given by the "Faf Contributor" to editors; and which was this: **If you don't understand the subject, the best way to do is just to pitch in ami discuss it as naturally as though you know all about it, aud most of your readers will be satisfied." If the Ore gonian would only spare a moment, now and then, from its frantic abuse of Senator Mitchell, to inquire into general politics, it would not so often be driven to the dire necessity of so far presuming upon the stupidity of its readers as to hazard opinions where it is ignorant of f...

Pictures of Memory. katong the beautiful pictures That bang on Memory's Wall, Is one of a dim old forest. That a—eta best of all; Not for its gnarled oaks olden, Dark with tbe mistletoe; Not for tbe violets golden That sprinkle the vale below; Not for the milk-white llllies That lean from the fragrant hedge, Coquetting all day with the sunbeams, And stealing their golden edge ; Not for the vines on the Upland, Where the bright red berries rest; \or the pinks, uor the pale {sweet cowslip, It seenieth ;o me the best. i once had a little I rOther, With eyes that were dark ami deep; In the lap of that dim old forest He lieth iv peace asleep.

A Romance of Fort George Island. Fort George Island—a winter resort at the mouth of the St. John's river, Flor ida, which is coming into fashion—is the subject of an enthusiastic writer \nScrib ner's, who relates the followiug story: The young owner of the island, culti vating hundreds of acres and raising enormous crops of cotton and sugar, used to build schooners in a ship-yard of his own, and imported slaves directly from the African coast, selling to his neighbors such as he did not waut. He was un married. Perhaps no one of the daugh ters of the neighboring planters could be persuaded to share the lonely life which could hardly have appeared attractive in any woman's eyes; perhaps he preferred a life of freedom and independence. How ever that may have been, he was in the habit of going occasionally to Africa himself, aud of buying his slaves from the native chiefs, who disposed in this way of their prisoners of war. During oue of these visits, while en gaged in bargaining, he w...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AHP COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. A Farewell of the Period. Farewell, my dearest —nevermore. Hand clasped in hand, shall we together Roam o'er the breezy, broad sea-downs, All in the merry soft May weather! But then this thought occurs to me: "Twill save a trifle in shoe-leather. Farewell! for fate will have it so, Oh, fondest heart! Oh, tenderest, nearest! The hues of spring have lost their glow— The leaf—the leaf is at its searest, I may not wed thee, sweet—just now, Dry goods and things are at their dearest. Farewell, beloved—thou art free— A fearful dearth of funds had done it; I'll keep the ever in my heart— I'll put thee in rrry choicest sonnet: These will I, love—they little cost- Not so a Paris gown and bonnet! And now we go divided ways; Dead broke am I—that's all too certain; I take no more stock in boquete, Bonbons, and all that goes with ftirtin'; So now I drop love's pretty theme. And, so to speak, p...

The Steam Plough. Frater's Magazine, in an article upon the modern agricultural improvements, says: In the way of sheer downright force, few effects of machinery are more striking than a steam-ploughing engine dragging the shares across a wide ex panse of stiff clay. The huge engines used in our iron-clad vessels work with a graceful ease which deciivjs the eye; the ponderous cranks revolve so smoothly, and shine so brightly with oil and polish, that the mind is apt to underrate the work performed. But these ploughing -engines stand out solitary and apart from other machinery, and their shape itself suggests force, such forces as may have -existed in the mastodon, or other un wieldy monster of the prehistoric ages. The broad wheels sink into the earth under the pressure; the steam hissing from the escape valves is carried by the breeze through the hawthorn hedge, hiding the red berries with a strange, unwonted cloud; the thick, dark brown smoke, rising from the funnel as the stoker ...

Hie Independent. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1577. Proves au Alibi. The "smart Alec" who writes the heavy editorials of the Oregonian, has i evidently been reading Pickwick. In j our last issue we referred to the re- : markable reduction of the democratic j majority in Kentucky at the presiden tU election of 1872, but inadvertent- , ly named 1868, the first election of , Grant, instead of 1872, the date of his ■econd election. Taking advantage of this error of dates, the wiseacre who dispenses a daily morceau of wisdom through the columns of the Oregonian, after nearly a week of painful study and research, undertakes in a labored article to show that our statement is untrue. This petty attempt to evade the main question by a technicality, reminds us of the story told of a cer tain candidate for Governor: During the canvass he was charged with hav ing been seen drunk at a certain time and place. With a howl of virtuous indignation itis friends came forward and easily disproved the statemen...
