Wit and Humor. Whenever a man has "feathered his nest" he at once begins to "plume him self" upon it also. Two oysters in a gallon of lukewarm fluid at a church fair are no longer called stews, but aquariums. "The point is just this," says the Sub lime Porte, "I am Turkey, and Russia wauts to do the gobbling." A little girl, in describing a man whom she noticed in shoes but not socks, said he was barefoot with shoes ou. Whatever else may be said against the Chinese no one can truthfully say that he ever saw one who parted his hair iv the middle.

The Independent. THURBDAY, DE< IEMBEB 2ft 1877. Glitter, Not Gold. In "Roughing It," Mark Twain tells a good story on himself, how when he first went to the Nevada mines and with ecstatic delight gath ered a great quantity of mica and other glittering stuff and thought he had made u astrike-" lie joined his comrades at cam]) and thought to as tonish them with the revelation of his discovery. When apprised of the true character of his specimens he exolamined—"All that glitters is not gold." Whereupon one of his com rades, an old miner, told him he might go further than that, and lay it up among his treasures of knowledge, that nothing that glitters is gold. Mark then philosophizes as follows: "So I U*u*tod then, onoe for all. that gold iv its native state is but dull, unornanu utaJ stuff, and that only law-born metals Vxcite the admiration of the ignorant with an oaten tatious glitter.

The Empty Cradle. Sad is the heart of the mother, Who sits by the lonely hearth, Where aever again the children Shall waken their songs of mirth. And still through the painful silence She listens for TOiCC and tread. Outside of the heart —there only She knows that they are not dead! Ilere is the desolate cradle, The pillows so lately preset d. But far away has the blrdllng Flown from its little nest. Greening the lullabies over That once was her baby's delimit. All through the misty spaces She follows its upward flight.

Ludicrous Love Tale. A German author, who has written a ! book on America, tells a good tale of a ! case of breach of promise, which would not make a bad afterpiece for the Adel pbia. We shall endeavor to condense it, DQt cannot vouch for its truth. A pretty young girl of New York,well brought up, but poor, cast her eyes upon a smart, tal ented, and well-to-do young gentleman, and thought he wonlii make no bad husband. But how Io catch him was the question. A woman's wit came to ber i aid. One tine morning, putting on her best looks and prettiest frock, she called upon a young lawyer to ask his advice on the matter. The latter, who was not accustomed to receive such clients in his chambers, w as thrown in a state of grand confusion, and overturned no end ofj piles of law books and papers before be could find her a chair. Witli many blushes she told her tale. The lawyer entered heartily into ber case, and gave hi 9 advice. Itwaßto engage the young bachelor, for whom she sighed, in co...

A Chapter on Budding. The only trustworthy rule as to the time for budding is whenever tho bark of the stock separates readily from the wood, or, in technical terms, "the sap ruus," and when the shoot from which the buds are to be removed is sufficiently matured. Iv the Middle States, from the 13th of August to the Isth of September is generally the proper time, although frosts or even cold nights will frequently check the How of sap and cause the bark to lighten. When the latter occurs, how ever, a thorough stirring of the soil around the stock will usually cause the bark again to looien, provided warmer weather again sets in. Early iv the sea son some kinds of fruit trees, as the peach, will be making an exceedingly vigorous growth, so much so as to endan ger the success of the operation by the excess of sap. The latter may be checked by simply pinching oil" the tips of the growing shoots. Mahaleb cherry stocks are especially benefitted by this treat ment. The operation consists m...

The Independent. THURSDAY, JANUARY ;i, 1878. County Finance. If Henry Failing, the banker of Portland, or any other moneyed man of that city or of Vancouver, known to be a wise and honest man, should issue his notes of hand payable in two years for a sum equal to about one tenth of what he owns, the notes to draw interest at ten per cent, per annum, capitalists woidd esteem them very good debts td buy, and if they could be bought at five or six per cent, discount, would eagerly seek them as an investment. If the maker of these notes was of undoubted finan cial standing, the people would have such confidence in his intention and ability to pay, that they would en dorse his paper with alacrity. They would reason that ten per cent, is a fair rate of interest, two years not very long to wait, and this man's pa per bought at a discount sufficient to make the interest for the two years amount to twelve per cent, per an num, compounded at the end of the first year, would be a thrifty inves...
