The Independent. THURSDAY, A.PRIL 18,1878. So much has been said about tho O. S. N. Company as being'a "grasp ing monopoly," that an officer of the Company has seen tit to give a few facts conoeruing the navigation of tho Columbia river, and rates of freight charged by the Company. We view the fact s as official, and in the light ol" t'.te information given, must pro nounce fairness on the putt of tlie Company towards its patrons, mid also distrust those persons who cry out against it as the "grasping- mo nopoly" without a proper knowledge of the subject. It is true that the 0 S. X. Co. docs a big business for itself —it has a tine paying business —but it is that Company thai: has made farming pay in the Eastern country, and to it that section of our Territory is indebted for all its pros perity. That is our judgment—now read tbe communication of S. G-, Reed in another column, aud judge for yourself. • A lew days since a party of sur veyors from Tacoma founds practi cable [railroad ...

A Woman's Choice. "I wish 1 knew what to do," said Kate Warfleld, sitting on a knoll in the cool, shadowy orchard, ou a warm, sunny afternoon. She was iv a Quandary; she had two lovers, aud she Wondered which it was best to choose. John Kuinst'ord was young ami had a lite lull of promise and great possibilities before him. Hut he was poor. Kate Warfleld knew that he loved her, as a strong man can love, but could she, used to luxuries of life, give up that which seemed necessary to her comfort and marry a poor man! Philip Leith was old and rich, und he, in this it iter which she had just been reading, made her the oiler of his heart —supposing such an organ to be in ex istence—and hand. He could give her the things she longed for, the glitter and show the coveted. Site heard some one whistling down the road, and, looking in that direction, saw John coining. Something seemed to tell her that she must decide be tween her lovers now, and in a swift way she looked the case over. On one s...

Fashion to the Last. We apprehend there is little reliance in this story, although it is Frenchy enough to be so: A French lady, distinguished in so ciety as having had more admirers than any other, woman, died the other day, leaving her husband a freedom he had long sighed for and an ancient hall. The beautiful lady was enrhumee (French for cold I from going to a ball. But then she must also'go to another ball two nights afterwards, instead of staying in her bed. In vain the doctor told her it would be her death. The lady coughed badly, but replied: ••Hut, my friend, do you not under stand that a woman of fashion can afford to die, bul cannot afford lo miss Count Hnpperiui's ball, where all the most grand world will bo?

Rotation of Crops. Among the essentials requisite to main tain a high degree of success in cultiva tion, a proper system of rotation of crops occupies a prominent place. The advan tages of rotation in farm crops ate well known; yet, in the garden, the. practice is very common to grow the same kind of crops lor years on tile sitne spot of ground. It is, perhaps, within the bounds of possibility to pursue this course suc cessfully, but to do so wiil require an an nual -return lo the Soil, iv s line form, of the several ingredients ox tr no ted by the plants. Our knowledge of the applica tion of science will not warrant much faith in this direction, even if chemists were decided as to exact respective amounts of the ingredients useel liy va rious crops. But allowing it to be prac tically attainable, and looking at it in the light of mete economy, a change of crop is every Way desirable; since by proper care two dissimilar crops may be pro duced un the same ground in the same season; um...
