Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AMD COONTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash Ington Territory. The Heart's Deception. Be still, oh, yearning heart, be still; I will not to your teachings hark; For when no joy niv pulses thrill, You tell me all the world is dark. While reason whispers all is fair As when no sorrow filled mv breast, That summer's fruits are rich and rare, And earth is still in beauty drest. You chill me with your dark forebodings, And tell all is gloom without; Yet when I sit in reason's teachings, I find that you are prone to doubt. Ah, heart, you are an erring preacher; I will no more confide in you; Wisdom shall henceforth be my teacher. The life will wear a sunnier hue. All joy from earth has never fled, Though youth and summer must depart E'en when the flowers we love are dead, .j "fia winter only in the heart. — A Danish Legend. Once upon a time a Danish kuiglit was about to be married to the prettiest dam- j sel in all Denmark, and, according to the c...

Mrs. Stoddard's Trial. 11Y I?ADOKK IKIOKKB. Bill Stoddard is just the meanest man that ever drew the breath of life. I wouldn't shed a tear if lightnin' would strike liim and knock him iuto the fur thest corner o' kingdom come. I didn't 'spose that there was a man in the world that could be so everlastin' mean and ag gravatin'. What has he done? He's done that that lie ought to be hung for. You see there was another fellow paying at tention to me when 1 lirst saw Will, and I never told of it before, but the actual fact of it is that I had about half a no tion to marry the other fellow, for he really was handsomer thau Will, but he didn't seem to feel so bad when 1 went with Will as Will did when I went with him, and I finally got to thinkin' that miubc Will cared the most for me, and if (lure's anything in the world that it pays a woman to look out for when she's inakin'a bargain for life, it's to be sure to get a husband whose love will be true, and lastin', and constant as the lit...

"VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, MAY J.t, IS7S. VP THE KlM.lt. Last week we went a short distance into the upper country in company with N. H. Bloomtield, Prosecuting Attorney of the 2d district, and W. H. Small wood, Register of the Van couver Land Office. The trip up the Columbia on the steamers U7</e Went and Mountain (Jueen, was very pleas ant, rendered more so by the politeness and gentlemanly attentions of the "minions" of the "grinding monopoly," which furnished the boats and railroad on which we made the journey. THE DALLES, Our first stopping place, we found to be a busy, thriving town, full of strangers, and many new buildings going up in the business part of the town. Here we came across Ben Kor ten, Fred Delim and Hiram Cochran, former residents of Vancouver. Ivor ten is doing a good business in the saloon way, keeping a very nice place. Dehtn is carrying 011 the jewelry busi ness—and Cochran was at work on the O. S. N. C'o.'s new steamer, which is rapidly approachin...

The Latest Invention. Not content with inventing the phono graph, Mr. Edison has just perfected an other coutrivance which he calls the' Aerophone. What it is and what it will ! do are told by an "interview er" connected ! with the New York World: "I am very sorry," said Mr. Edison, I "that I cannot show you the aerophone) to-day; I have just sent the application i for a patent to Washington, and have j taken the machine I had here to pieces." That he has invented a machine which, placed upon a locomotive, will raise its j voice and announce in giant tones,that can I be heard for miles, "I am engine Manni-I duke, and will stop at Boonton Station,"! or whatever'other warning or inform a-1 tionit chooses, there is um the least reason | to doubt. The vibrating diaphragm principle in use in the marvellous phono graph is made a key to the mystery. I The vibrating-plate which in the phono graph moves a sharp point, over a revolv ing cylinder, in the aerophone operates] as a valve to shut ...

The Domestic Sphinx. Compared to a cat, a dog is very sim ple aud transparent creature. Some times, indeed, he is guilty of acts of de ception and hypocrisy,but they arecrudc and ingenuous compared to the unfath omable wiles of a cat. Mr. North's dog, for instance, who ate the pigeon out of the pic and stuffed up the hole with Mr. North's ink-sponge, was not an adept iu the art of theft; and a fox-terrier with whom the prescut writer enjoys the inti macy of a common household has dis graced herself this last week by what was, to all intents and purposes, a lie, when a little more astuteness would have shown her the futility of falsehood in the face of an alibi. She had been tear ing up paper and strewing it about the floor, with fine literary freedom, when the servant whose duty it was to clean the carpet asked her, with magisterial se verity, "B'Ao tore tlioso letters!" The culprit looked at first terribly abashed, and hung her head and tail in expecta tion of chastisement, till he...

American Traits. Rev. 11 W. D.ile, au English preacher and lceturer, who spout tcveial months last year in iliis country delivering in the time a course of lectures before tlie Yale Theological School, is writing his ''Im pressions of America." He slates, as one of the results of his visit, that he was convinced that some of the representa tions of the American people ftliich have become popular in England are gross and slanderous libels. We quote a few paragraphs from his first paper in the "Nineteenth Century:"—"lt is true.no doubt, that the kind of respect which the people in an English agricultural village sometimes show to their pastors and masters is not to oe found, as far as I know, iu the Uuited States. The little girls do not draw up against the wall and make a respectful courtesy to every well-drifisd stranger the? meet.

The Dairy System of England. A peculiar method of making butter is very largely iu vogue in England. In stead of skimming the milk and using the cream only in the process, the milk aud cream together are reduced to a low temperature, and after remaining in the miltt-room for from five to seven days, it is, by the use of warm water, raised to a temperature of from seventy to five degrees, and is then churned altogeth er. It takes some labor to produce but ter alter this fashion, and the churning is usually done in quantities of from fifty to sixty gallons, iu large barrel-chums run by a pony or dog power. When cream only is used to make the butter, the milk remaining after the butter is gathered is often used to make cheese — but when the milk and cream are churned together, as above described, the residu um is fed almost without exception to hogs—although it has string nutritive qualities, and when allowed to ferment becomes more or less intoxicating. Butter in England is a product ...

Fierce Fislit With a r.ear. [From the Tacoma Herald.] On last Monday, the 13th iust, sev eral young men went out hunting on horseback, and when near Win. Nel son's farm they suddenly came upon two large bears, they tired upon them and succeeded in killing one, but the other ran for the timber and passed out of sight, notwithstanding that one of the boys, Johnny Noithover, put four charges of buck shot into him at short range. As the bear seemed likely to escape, Adam Benson said he would ride around the thicket, which was a short distance, and head him otF. He accordingly started oil alone and reached the other side of the wood before the bear. He dismounted and tied his horse to a tree, and had waited but a few moments when the infuraited beast broke from the timber and rushed for him. He fired two shots, but the bear was upon him. The beast rose upon his hind legs, as Adam struck at him with his ritle, and knocked the weapon from his hands. Then with a stroke of his paw he fulled ...

Home. flow pleasant is home When evening has come, And the lamp on the table is set: From labor we rest And feel we are blest, In the family group that is met. The children with books Are wise in their looks, As they talk of the stories they read With mirth and with song The time glides along, Aud our home is made happy indeed The cares of the day Are banished awav, And the mind for eujoyiu nit is rife.

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JUNE ti, 1878. The Potter investigation of Louisiana fraudshas commenced. The man Ander son was brought up to convict the Repub lican party, but so far his evidence has l>een so conflicting and contradictory that the whole thing is likely to prove a failure before it is fairly commenced. The New York Times of Monday last, ill editorially noting Anderson's testi mony before the Potter investigating committee, says, "Anderson referred in his testimony on Saturday to cer tain conversations with Gov. Kellogg. It turns out that Kellogg was absent from New Orleans during the time which Anderson specifically fixes for his dates. Anderson was appointed supervisor by Lieutenant Governor Antoine, not by Kellogg as he avers. These early refutations of the state ments of the man who concedes that he has lied with frequency and free dom do not promise well for the solid ity of a case which mainly rests upon his testimony." A sensation has been created in Europ...
