What Was in the Overcoat. It was during the late war, and imme diately after one of those sharp, hotly contested skirmishes which arc so apt to befall the thinks, or outposts, of big, op posing armies. Having been mostly a cavalry scrimmage, there were an unusual number of bad-looking wounds as com pared with the number of deaths. As soon as tbe tight was over, the wounded were borne from the field, and a hospital improvised in an old barn, which offered plenty of room, though not much pro tection from the weather. Among the wounded was Corporal Silas Tirana, one of the very bravest and best natured of our men. A bullet had shut tend one of the bones of the leg, between the knee and the ankle, but he had man- ' aged, with the aid of two muskets for crutches, to make his own way to the barn. When there, however, the dibit told upon him so severely that he fainted dead away, and was lifted by some of his comrades to a grain-chest which chanced to stand near. Not long before this event...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. Patient. 1 was not patient in that olden time, When my unchastened heart began to loug For bliss that lay beyond its reach; my prima Was wild, impulsive, passionate and strong; I could not wait for happiness aud love. Heaven scut.to come and nestle in my breast; I could not realize how time might prove That patient waiting would avail me best. "Let me be happy now," my heart cried out, ''In mine own way and with my ehosei lot; The future is too dark and full of doubt For me to tarry, and I trust it not. Take all my blessing, all I am and have, Hut gije that glimpse of Heaven before the grave!" "Ah me!" God heard my wayward, selfish cry, And, taking pity on my blinded heart He bade the angel of strong grief draw nigh, Who pierced my bosom in its tenderest part. I drank wrath's wine cap to the bitter lees, With strong amazement and a broken will; Then humbled, straightway fell upon...

Wit and Humor. How far may a widow go in providing for her children? If left to the widow, she would probably think it right to go one step-father. Spkiggins says he once prevented a severe case of hydrophobia by simply getting on a high fence and waiting there till the dog had gone away. Somebody tried to excuse a liar to Dr. Johnson, saying, "You must not believe more than half he says." "Ay," replied the doctor, "but which half ?" "Pouter," said an old lady to an Irish railway porter, "when does the nine o'clock train leave?" "Sixty minutes past eight, ma'am," was Mike's reply. The Boston Gazette tells of a young man who inquired at a Winter street store for a pair of "undressed gentleman's kids." Of course the female attendants giggled. A good little boy who was kicked by a mule did not suy naughty words or go home crying to his mother. He just tied the mule within live feet of a beehive, backed him round to it and let him kick.

In this way the re storation of harmony and good will and protection of every citizen in the full enjoyment of every constitutional right will surely be attained.

Alice Cary's Sweetest Poem. Among the beautiful pictures That hang on Memory's wall, Is one of a dim old forest That seemeth the best of all; Not for its gnarled oaks olden. Dark with the mistletoe; Not for the violets golden That sprinkle the vale below; Not for the milk-white lilies That lean from the fragrant hedge, Coquetting all day with the sunbeams. And stealiug their golden edge; Not for the vines on the upland, Where the bright red berries rest; Nor the pink, nor the pale, sweet OOWtlipt, It. seemeth to me the best. Fanny's Flirtation.

Abundance of Russian Transport and Forage. The weather, which has been eplen did here since the 12th, changed again last night to rain, with storms aud cold. Many tents were blown down, aud general discomfort prevailed. However, five days of dry weather have made au im mense difference on the roads, which are easily traversable again—a perfect god send to the cattle. I cannot find any reason for the idea that the cold and wet, when they do come in earnest, need close the campaign, certainly not as far as siege works arc concerned. It is wholly and solely a question of trrnsport, and this, on tbe other hand, when the cattle are good, simply means forage. I have never seen an army with such an cverplus of transport means as this. Where we should use three horses, or even two, tbe Rus sians employ four or five, and so on in proportion. Tbe horses arc all of hardy race, accustomed to just such a climate, or one rather worse. Then, a 9 to forage, tho couutry literally overflows with it— ...
