Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AMD COUHTT Vancouver, Clarke County, Waah * injrton Territory. The Wind"* Mischief. The wind was out for a frolic, And a merry wight was he; With flying w ing and whistling mouth Ip he came from the far warm South, To see w hat he could see. And he saw in Hold-Locks' garden A full-blown apple tree; And where the leavus were cosiest With leaf and blossom, he saw a nest, As cunning a* could be. And he paused in his mad.cap flying, And murmured roguishly: "Oh, what will happen to that bird-house If I toss, and tumble, and shake tbe bows? I'll do it,just to see!" 80 he caught the blossomed branches, And shock with a wicked glee; Shook aud shook, again and again, And down there sprinkled a rosy rain Out from the apple tree. But the birdlings in the bird's nest Slumbered so cosily That the mother sung in words like these: "Oh, what a loving, beautiful breeze To rock mv babies for me t" The Little Match Girl. It was dreadfully cold; it was snowi...

Homely Hints. Now it is Mr. Moody who is reported as "giving way from over-work." That sort of obituary over a publio man's dead body or his ended usefulness is as com mon nowadays as in tlie last generation was "died from the visitation of God." The popular lay preacher has an excep tionally healthy organisation and stock of animal vitality, but not enough, it appears, to stand the incessant tremen dous strain be has laid upon the netves. He is, we believe, however, too wise and too good a man to Commit this common menial suicide in tlie pursuance of any duty, however high it may seem to him. It is not over-work which kills the American ; it in an incredible lack of pru dence ami common sense in the doing of the work. Stout, beet-th inking German scholars go through more hard grinding labor in study in a year than our students in s life-time.

"I Miss Thee." I miss thee, when the evening Comes down with dusky wing, Its cool and darkeningshadows A flood of metn'ries bring. It calls to mind an evening, At twilight long ago, When passing by the river We watched its ebb and flow. Hand in hand we lingered there, Till o'er the waters wide The blue and misty shadows Bespoke the eventide. Then turning slowly homeward, Our last "good-bye" was said, Little dreaming that such hours For us had ever fled. Lonely now I clasp my hands, And gaze far over the tide, And long to join my loved one Upon the other side. I miss the touch of fingers, I ne'er again will hold. And miss the tender love-tones, That snake to me of old. 1 miss thee at the dawuing, 1 miss thee, dear, at noon; The gloomy shades of evening Fall round me, all to soon. Reginald's First School Days. Oue frosty morning id January, two delicate-looking children were sitting be fore a bluzing tire iv a long, low nursery, with oak ratters running across the ceil ing. Between tl...

Tancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUHTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash- ington Territory. A Song' of a Leaf. BY JOHN FKAXCIS WALLER. I flung a leaf on a summer stream. That 1 plucked from the alder-tree; And I watched it dance in the sunny beam Where the eddies played rippingly. "O! for a life like the leaf," I cried, "Floating along on the sunlit tide.'' Over the water came a breeze, And it hurried the leaf along; Down to the margin stooped the trees, And they whispered a gentle song. "Ol for a life like the leaf," I cried, •Ever in sunshine and song to glide."' Fast sped the leaf on its joyous way. Till it reached the rocks in the river; Over the ledge, amid foam and spray, Went the leaf—and was lost forever. "Ah, me! Is life like the leaf?" I cried— "Like the leaf" the echoing rocks replied.
