An Exhibition of Edison's N underfill Talking Machine. One of Edison'a phonographs made an appearance before a large audience yes terday afternoon in the F.r*t Methodist Episcopal Church, ami talkid and sang itself hoarse -or rather talked and sing until its little diaphragm became crack ed. The exhibition was intended to lie for the benefit of the press and various gentlemen of the city interested iv sci entific appliances, but there was a great demand for invitations, and at the hour appointed for the performance the audi torium of the church was tilled uearly to tho extent of its capacity, many ladies being present. Mr. George H. Bliss, a well-known electrician, a.-sisttd by Mr. George R. McDonnell, manipulated the instrument, which was placed on a table upon the pi itform. It was not a very formidable-looking machine, being easily lifted, and not oc cupying more than two Mjmre feet of space. There was an iron cylinder about five inches in diameter and tix in length, havii g a th...

Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Wash ington Territory. Edna's Answer. Yes I did say when you whispered Words of love so sweet aud low, "Oases to me upon the morrow And 1 answer yes or no?" Now you've come, you're bending o'er me, Swearing too by heaven above, That the one to whom you're pleading Is your first aud only love. Rolliu Howard, you've deceived me, You have played the coward's part, You must go, I trust no longer He who trifles with my heart. Just an hour ago I listened While a maiden, bowed with shame, Told a story fraught with sorrow, Told me of a tarnished name. Told how lured by one's sweet pleadings, Left her sunny southern home; Now forsaken, hopes all scattered, She is left alone to roam. Standing there, her dark eyes flashing, Anger stamped upon iter face, With her arm upraised to heaveu, Tom nhe cursed and all your race. Think you now I'll trust my future Unto you? no, never.' Then This my answer to your question, ...

A Fearful .Swing. The "shaftmen" at our collieries are selected for their physical strength and pluck, iv addition to the skill and prac tical knowledge required for their partic ular work. Tlie incident we are about to relate will show how severely the former of these qualifications may at times be tested. The work of these men is confined to the shaft of the pit,aud consists mainly in repairing the "tubbing" or lining of the shaft, stopping leaks, or removing any obstructions interfering with the free passage of the cages up and down the pit. The coal-pit at N has a double shaft, divided by a "bratticing" or wooden par tition. These divisions we will call A and B. Two cages vehicles of trans port up ami down the pit) ascend and descend alternately in shaft A. At a cer tain poiut the shaft is widened, to allow the cages to pass each other, and their simultaneous arrival at this point is in sured by the arrangement of the wire ropes on the wiudiug-whcels over the pit-mouth.

Vancouver Independent. THURSDAY, AUGUST S, 187$. The farmers of Ohio, Indiana and some other of the middle States, are meeting with considerable losses by the breaking up and injury of their reapers and farm machinery in tlie field. Many farmer! have received notice to abandon labor-saving machin ery or they will be burned out. If it is the "labor reform party that is en gaged iv this movement, this action will soon prove the fallacy of their pretenses, and be the cause of sudden downfall. If the tramps are at the bottom of it, as soon as that fact is fairly established the farming districts will prove very unhealthy tramping ground, and full of fatal accidents, This state of affairs has its lesson for the people of this coast. Tramping has only just commenced here, and this terrible nuisance with all its at tendant evils can very easily Ih? reme died if commenced upon soon. Two things a tramp detests—to be kept in one place over forty-eight hours—to perform labor of any kind which ...

Beautiful Things. Beautiful faces are those that wear- It matters little if dark or fair— Whole-souled honesty printed there. Beautiful eyes are those that show. Like crystal panes where hearth-tires glow, Beautiful thoughts that burn below. Beautiful lips are those whose words Leap from the heart like songs of birds, Yet whose utterance prudence girds. Beautiful hands are those that do Work that is earnest and brave aud true. Moment by moment the long day through. Beautiful fee t are those that go Ou kindly ministries to and fro— Down lowliest ways, if God wills it so.

Josh Billings on Birds. THE QUAIL. The quail iz ft game bird, about oue siae bigger than the robin, and so sudden that they hum when they fly. They have no song, but whistle for music, the tune is solitary and sad. They are shot on the wing, and a man may be good iv arith nictic, fustrate at parsing, and even be able to preach acceptably, but if he ain't studied quail on the wing he might ns well shoot at a streak of lightning in the sky ns at a quail ou the go. Brilcd quail, properly supported with jelleys and a Champagne Charlie, iz just the most difficult tiling, in my humble opinion, tow beat in the whole history ov vittels and something to drink. I am no gourmand, for I kan eat bread and milk five days out ot seven, and smack my lips after I git thru, but if I am asked to eat briled quail by a friend, with judishous accompniiymeut, I blush at fust, then bow my head, and then smile sweet acquiescence—in other words, I always quail before such a request. the r ahthidoe.

The Olympia Tnuitcript Says thai tho hoatilesprocureamraunitionfri m beneath our very noses. It states as follows: "During the week several Strang*. Indians are hero in town, whom our Indians report to be messengers from the hostile camps east of the moun tains. They are here, no doubt, to create sympathy among those here for the hostiles, and to procure guns and ammunition to carry bat k. There are many of our Indians who sympathize with them, and are doubtless assisting them to secure what they want.' We ate told that white parties at Steilacoom ami Se attle are believed to have supplied these Indians with huge quantities of ammunition. If such is the case they should be severely dealt with and no one should be allowed to sell these articles to Indians at such a time as this, when they may got into the bands of those savages who will murder our friends and people in ex posed parts of the country." Judge Lynch ought to attend to such fel lows. Under tho head of"Major Nicker ton'a T...

Can tlie Indian Be Civilized. American people are apt to think that our civilization is a tiling so simple in its character, so manifestly beneficial in its effects, that contact only is needed to mak" the barbarian desirous of embrac ing it. Consequently, it is the opinion ol a large class of citizens, that if the right course was taken with the Indian, he might soon he made a useful and edu cated member of society. It i- true that after two hundred years oi labor and a vast expenditure of money the red man remains now as ignorant of the law s con trolling a respectable white community, nnd as far from bee..mini; a civilized being, as the day of the landing of the pilgrim lathers. A recent writer upon the Indian sub ject at tempts to account for this. First, the tribal relation yet in full forceretards progress because it perpetuates barbarous customs. As individuals, the red men arc entirely different both mentally and morally from their white brethren, and the attempt to engraft ...
