Don't Take it to Heart. There's many a trouble Would break like a bubble. And iuto the waters of Lethe depart, Did we not rehearse it, And tenderly nurse it, And give it a permanent place in the heart. There's many a sorrow Would vanish to-morrow, Were we but willing to furnish the wings; So ssdly intruding, And (piietly brooding. It hatches out all sorts of horrible things. How welcome the seeming, Of looks that are beaming, Whether one's wealthy Or whether one's poor; Byee bright as a berry, Cheeks red as a cherry, The groan, and the curse, and tbe heartache •an cure. Resolved to be merry, All worry to ferry Across the famed waters that bid us forget, Aud no longer fearful. But happy and cheerful, We feel life has much that's worth living for vet. — ('ton/iatui V. dark. Chad and Seth.

All For Nothing. One of the most unfortunate men of our acquaintance is a good-looking cler gyman, a widower, who has six grown-up daughters. Of course they are violently opposed to the thought of having a step mother, and their poor father is subjected to a cruel espionage, and is compelled Ay take one or more of his daughters wfwi him wherever he goes. The other day, however, he succeeded in escaping to a neighboring town without the presence of a daughter or two, and after an ab sence of several days, a message came to the daughters that their father "had married a widow with six sprightly chil dren." Had a bomb-shell burst, greater consternation would not have been caused. The intelligence also was con veyed that the clergyman would return at a certain time. Those girls held a coun cil at once, and it was unanimously agreed to give " the widow with six sprightly children" an exceedingly warm reception —so hot, indeed, that the house and village could not hold them. The well-regu...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AMD COUNTY Yaneouver, Cfcarke County, Wash ington Territory. A Vintage Song-. BY E. D. R. BIANCIARIH. Once more the year its fullness pours To cheer the heart of toil; Once more we take with gratitude The blessing of the soil. I hear the children laugh and sing,— They pull the grapes together; And gladness breathes from everything in this October weather. The winter days were long and dark, The spring was slow to come; And summer storms brought fear and doubt To many a humble home. But rain and sunshine had their will And wrought their work together, And see! we heap our basket* still, In this October weather. My heart has had its winter, too, And lain full bare and gray; I did not think ■ spring would come, Much less a summer day. How little did I dream that life Would bring us two together, And I should be a happy wife in this October weather! Doubtless the frosts will come again, And some sweet hopes must die; But we shall bear the pas...

Dutch Bulbs. There are few ornaments of the flower bed or of the winter window so easily managed and so deservedly popular as tbe various Dutch bulbs, and as this is the best time to prepare for planting them, we will have a few words to say as to their management. The bulbs may be planted in October—those that start early should be planted first, such as Snow drops and Crocuses. And first as to out of door planting. The spot chosen for the bed should be sheltered from the cold winds of spring, so that the first warm, sunny days in March may bring up the Crocuses and Snowdrops in a joyous promise of com ing spring. The ground should be spaded up deeply and a good dressing of fine stable manure worked in, and if the soil is at all inclined to be stiff and heavy a good inch or two of sand should be worked into it. Most of the smaller bulbs will do best by planting them in little clumps or clus ters about two inches apart each way. The snowdrop and crocus and scilla will thrive in this...

The Independent. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1677. Endorspd. In proof that a "new-comer" may happen to be right now and t i3n, we copy tbe following from the haling republican (anti-administra tion) piper of one of the strongest re publican states in the Union; "If it is true that the President has concluded to appoint General Harlan, of Kentucky, |o tbe supreme bench, in tbe place ot Senator Davis, elected senator from Il.inois, he has done well. We had feared, that a southern states rights lire eator would secure the af> pointment, or Bristow, or some one ot t'l it class oi po'iticians, and are happily disippointed. John M. Harlan is for ty yeirs old, six feet high, weighs 22G paunds an I always has good health. A sau orator he has no supeiior and but few equals. Ho is a well read, sound lawyer; and has been a life-long, consistent republican, with republican views of the rights of states and the powers of the different branches of the government. That is what is needed on the suprem...

San Francisco and Kalloeh's Temple. Arriving on Sunday, in the even ing we found our way \o church. Just now the leading attraction ec clesiastical is Isaac M. ka Much, (Bap tist,) and the most popular place of religious resort is his new Metropoli- j tan Tcinp'e on Fifth street. This church is the one founded in 1863, by i J. P. Ludlow, now of Olympia. The j new temple is a pretentious edifice—r i a music hall rather than a cathedral— three stories in heights. The lower floor is leased at good round figures for worldly purposes, business estab lishments. The two upper stories are the auditorium, main hall - and galleries. The good judgment of the builder is displayed in the location, which is in the elite part of the city, in near proximity to Baldwin's Hotel and Academy of Music, and opposite the new U. S. Mint. There is no pul pit—only a platform and stand. No j pews, but iron chairs, 1,200 in nuiafg ber. Every one of those chairs whs | tilled when we got in and nearly all j the ...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. Joy Cometh in the Morning. I know there is pain in the weary night, And we're filled with a sad unrest; But ob! there is joy when the morning light In glorious splendor and beauty bright, We see in the brilliaut east. Our cad hearts long for the sunny day, When the troubles of life shall cea6e, When the murky shadows 6hall flee away, And the hopes we've cherished no more de cay— # In the reign of eternal peace. 1 know there is grief in the night of pain; There are sorrows and bitter tears, Our bark is tossed on the billowy main— But the gloomy shadows begin to wave, For the glorious day appears. I know we are sad wben the chilling hand Of the angel of Death is laid On the cherished foims of the household band, And we long and for the better land, Where the flowers shall never fade. I know there is peace in the "by and by," When the saints shall be gathered home. We shall lift our...

Broom Corn Culture. I advise no one to raise broom corn us less he is fully posted. More men have been broken up, financially, by it, than by almost any other crop. A man raises a little patch on choice land, which does well; he then figures what au acre will produce, and is astonished. He at once concludes that he will plant largely, and get rich. He does so, expecting to tend as much land in broom corn as he could in Indian corn, and therefore do the la bor himself, and save the profits. The result, summed up in a few words, is that for lack of proper care iv hoeiug and harvesting he has about half a crop of brush that is worth about half the market price; and when sold will just about pay the extra help that he did not expect to hire. Broom corn should be planted about the same time as Indian corn, but the earlier kinds will mature a good crop of brush on rich land from Juue 10. It will do well on any land that will pro duce a good crop of Indian corn, but a sandy loam is prefera...

A Wayside Flower. Xl ROSE OEKANH M. On the brink of the dusty highway It stood and blossomed alone. It drank still dew In the darkness— Its root grew under a stove. Brave was its heart at morning, And patient in noou-day heat— While coming and going, going. Forever went busy feet. And some bore hurdens of Sorrow, And some were weary with pain, And others kept happy rhythm To many a glad refrain. Not large was IU gift to offer. Yet gladly the weary while It gave to the high and lowly Alike of its all—a smile. And many a sad heart blessed it, And never a voice could chide, Till frost from a dreary heaven Fell over it and it died. Stanley's Orett Exploration.

Jesli Billings' Philosophy. THE IIOKSK. Next to the cow, 1 konsider the horse the kiudest and most valuable ov all tbe animal gifts to man. They are ov all colors, shapes, sizes, tempers, and capasitys, from the lean and lithe built Arabian, to the solid and sturdy Suffolk Punch. The horse II the fasstest animal on the footstool, for enny distance, and probably the most easy one to domestikate. The valuable karackteristiks ov the horse are bone, muscle, formnshun, temper, courage, and the adapt ash Un ov muscle to his formashun. There is probably nz much real differ ence in the value ov horses as ov enny other ov the animals, and thare iz none who has so menny good, and in other cases, so menny bad qualitys.
