Our Salmon Fisheries. It is not difficult t>> predict that at no very distant day the salmon fisheries, of the Pacific (.'oast will return p. rl>• ■ conn try an immense revenue and that tho yield of salmon from the various streams now stocked and being stocked will be enormous. The attention of some of our wealthy men has been given to the matter, ami Governor Stanford and Charles Crocker have rendered vast ser vice to the State by their successful ef forts in propagating salmon in the vari-1 ous rivers and lakes. The official statistics of the Govern ment fisheries on the McCloud river present some astonishing figures. Dur ing the past year it is estimated that 8,- --000,000 salmon have been hatched in these fisheries, the eggs for which weighed eight tons. This establishment is the largest of its kind in tho world, and from it all the rivers and lakes in the United States will eventually be stocked with salmon Governor Stanford, at bis own ex pense, ordered a million youn...

Legends an! Superstitions. Traditions, legends, nnd superstitions, closely linked us they often ure, remain very distinct ill themselves mid in their influence. A tradition may be true; a legend is not only untrue, but improbable; and n superstition is a fool ish belief in the supernatural and im possible, The first two are apt to lie full of interest und charm; the lust is always n blight, wherever it nmy settle. The world abounds in wild and'marvel ous stories that are believed in by the uneducated. I'or instance, in nfmost every country there are legends about long-sleepers. According to them, Charlemange sleeps in Hess, seated on his throne, with crown on head and sword in hand, waiting till Antichrist shall come; the seven youths of Ephe sus, who refuse to bow down to the idol of the Emperor Deoius, sleep on, their faces fresh as roses till the resur rection day; Epimeuides slept forty seven years; a Christian priest sleeps in St. Sophia till the Turk shall be cast out; three B...

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 5, l*7tt. Mormon Women*' Petition. The Oregonion of the ist instant contains an article upon the petition of the twenty-three thousand women of Utah, lately presented, asking Congress to repeal all laws against polygamy in that territory, and com ments thereon as something very re markable, that there can be found so many women who prefer a fraction of a husband to a whole one. Now we do not believe that the Mormon women of Utah arc in favor of the measures the petition calls for, or that one in a hundred, or one in five hundred believe in their hearts what their petition alleges to be their con scientious faith. The fact of the matter is no doubt just this; that those women have been coerced into ■igning the petition by their tyranical and brutal husbands. In holy fear and constant dread of the displeasure of the ciders and other knaves in an thority, they, as a majority will do anything, or sign anything, which they think will keep their overseers and masters go...

Wmwvtv £nflf|mtdent, PUBLISHED EVERT SATURDAY WASHOUGAL.—We greeted tbe gen ial face of oar friend Mr. C. T. Stiles, of Washougal on Tuesday. From a somewhat wayward youth of a few years ago, he has solidified into a sub stantial yeoman of the country. lie reports times prosperous up at the creek, the farmers indulging in jubilant hopes of an early spring. He says the Washougal bridge has been very much weakened during the winter by the action of the high water upon the rock with which the abuttments are filled. It seems the rocks used were too small and the water has washed them away, leaving the structure without a solid foundation. The attention of the au thorities is called to this matter in tin hope that it will receive immediate at tention. Of late tite Washougal coun try has been brought into general notice, and all new comers seeking government lands have first inquired at the Laud Office relative to the Wnshougal coun try. It is therefore of double import ance that the brid...

Surprised Them. One of the oldest and best know n of the Brooklyn amateur dramatic associn- I Hons had among its members a gentle man well known as a "society man." who was almost always called upon to j officiate at the receptions, but who im agined that he possessed dramatic talent and desired to distinguish himself upon the stage. At last the " play commit tee" ca:it him, giving him the part of a I captain of a troop of soldiers, and all that he had to do was to march at the head of his troop and upon the tiring of a gun to exclaim, " Ah. a gun!" As the story goes, for several weeks he was to be seen of mornings leaning over tho railing of a Wall street ferry-boat, whispering to himself the words, " Ah! a gun. Ah! a gun." The long looked-for evening came at last: the captain, resplendent in a gaudy uni form, marched in with bis troop, the report of the gun was heard in the wings, nnd, with a start, the captain cried out, "Hello! what's that?" The audience perhaps were not startle...

Vancouver Independent. OFFICIAL PAI'EU OF CITY ANI> COUNTY. Vancouver, Clarke County, Washlng- ton Territory. Religion nnd Business. Quito a number of years ago a Meth odist clergyman, well known in those parts, took up liis quarters tor a time In a leading town <>f the western region of one of our Middle States. Mr. Bur ehurd was a revival preacher, nnd ho hoped t<> animate the people to a warmer interest in the cause of religion. Before beginning his labors lie politely called upon the respected Episcopal minister ami other clergymen of the place to ex plain hia viewa and to obviate any pos sible objection to the somewhat irregu lar course he intended to pursue.

Hut the spell of that voice was a potent spell, An.l its muatoal cadences rose ami tell In dreams and iv day's eestacyj Till the iiraln gave heed t" no other tone, And the soul was in bondage to this alone, Nor mourned i',,r its lost liberty.

SATURDAY", FEBRUARY 12, 1876. The Ideal Home. Elevate your ideal home. Whatever practically your home may be,remember that tbe ideal is always above it. The ev er present and important sphere of life is the home .sphere. Being as it is the nursery of men and women, it becomes the most important of ull other consid erations, and the one deserving of the most care aud thought. The sunniest spot on earth is the beautiful home, it may be humble and yet beautiful. Wealth may help to constitute a place ef habitation but it is not the element to make the happiness of home. Love, concert, peace, each preferring one an other among tbe household members; these are the elements of tbe ideal home. Order and neatness are second to these, and are of great importance. The surroundings must be pure and elevating, and this can only be possible where all are imbued with the spirit of a just appreciation of the true and beau tiiul at home. Attend strictly to the duties of tbe household. The small thin...
