Petunias. All who have cultivated Petunias have seen flowers with a margin of green, more or less wide. The seeds are offered in all catalogues under the name of P. mar- Several years ago we experimented with Petunias for the purpose of ascer taining how far they could be improved by crossing aud selection, an account of of some of the results of which was given in this paper at the time. For the second year we obtained monstrous flowers, both as regards bizc and markings. The most striking of these were marked aud the seeds (where perfected) saved. But the third season, instead of coming at all true, or of being improvements in any way upon their parents, they were all in ferior to those of the second season, and, concluding that little was to be gained by further experiments, we gave up Petu nia culture for that of other plants with which we had less to do. Among them, however, was a plant that we watched with a good deal of interest. In early summer it bore flowers that, when spr...

Fun and Sentiment. It is not impolite to eat the corn off the cob, but it is impolite to watch any one else doing it.— Phila. Press. From a boy's composition on hens: "I cut my Uncle William's hen's head off with a hatchet, and it scared her to death." Where one woman scans the horizon for signs of the dawn of a brighter era, ten are scouting among their neighbors trying to borrow saleratus. A Philadelphia dancing master is about introducing a new dance expressly for fat people. All the performers have to do is to sit on the floor and kick. "I should have no objections to my wife's reigning," said an affectionate hus band, "if it were not for the fact that when she reigns she is apt to storm also." In Cincinnati, almost every portion of the hog is put to some valuable use. A distinguished philosopher of that city is now trying some method of turning the sequel to some account.

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. The Minstrel. I am no gifted child of song, No harper old and gray, To win the smiles of courtly throng. With some enchanting lay; Yet still to friendship old and true, I'll touch the tuneful string, And o'er thy heart as blissful dew. Its music softly fling. I would bring back the youthful page, His true love, time and place, The proud old father in his rage, And put ihem'face to face; And humbly though the gift may be, And weak my minstrel skill, Tis all I have to offer thee, And am thy debtor still. Lady, the silent hours of night, When starlets twinkle free, Are fraught with visions of delight, And memories of thee; And when the pale moon softly smiles, Upon the other main, And glides among the starry isles, I list thy voice again. 1 would recall some lovelit green, Where island lovers smiled, And bring again the festal scene. At Moorish Ivsnlid; I'd bring them from earth's f...

The Independent. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 33, 18T7. House Bill SO. H. B. 80, relative to Clarke County orders, seems to have a strange effect on some of the citizens in Vancouver and vicinity. They have mustered up courage to ejaculate —"Repudiation!" and roll off* tirade about ''sending hoys to the legislature,*' and about "the tax pavers' right to Mile," and the consti tutionality of special legislation,'' kc, gs& Some of them have never been known to do anything but grumble and find fault, and generally to cast what little influence they possess against all efforts to better the social and financial condition of the community, If any thing ol a public character is done, they grumble because they wore not consult ed. When, after a long series of yean, Clarke County has undertaken through her representatives in the Legislature to deal honestly with her creditors, these men set up a howl and endeavor to excite the people against their pub lic servants. The opinions of such men are not...

The Steeds of Sin. Ride not the sUed of sin, my hoy. The wildly steeds of sin- In some abyss of darkness lone They're sure to plunge you in. Their tramping hoofs move swiftly on; Theil* is a fiery breath — They'll bear thee downward to despair; The destiny is death. Intemperance, with gory eyes Is speeding o'er the earth; A death In all his pathway lies- He's of 8 fiendish birth. Ride not this fleet and foaming steed, The victory he shall win; What rein or bit can stay his speed To doom of deadly sin. Oh, there are other dreadful steeds That man oft dares to ride; That work upon this beauteous earth. Invasion dark and w ide; Ride not the steeds of sin, my boy. Of their swift hoofs beware!

Railroad Intore Jts. Over thirteen years ago tbe Con- j gross of tbe United States chartered the Northern Pacific [Railroad,theob jeet of which was to construct a line of railroad from Lake Superior to Pu get Sound on the northern route. At that time nobody thought of any plan ra connection with the Northern Pa clfic, save thai of a through line on the shortest practicable rout". The charter and the land grant were given for the double purpose of opening up this vast extent of country to settle ment and creating a national highway to compete with its Southern rivals— the Union and Central Pacific. With this idea iv view the company has done a large amount of valuable work on the road, the charter has been amend ed from time to time to suit the de sires of the company, the alternate sections of land have been withdrawn from the market, and the settlement of the country ami the general prog ress of events all along the line of the projected road have been based upon the theory or hone...

As it burst from the mighty hill, 'Tis pleasant to know, Wherever I flow, The pastures grow greener still.

Though the drops are small, Yet, taking them all. Each one dointr all that it can To fulfill the design Of its Maker Divine, What lessons they irive uuto man !
