A LH.TPUTIAN REPUBLIC.
Ono of the smallest republics in
the world lies nestled on the south
eastern elope of the Pyienees.
For many hundred years it has re
mained neutral, whilst Frenchmen
and Spaniards have waged war
after warywinning or losing the prov
inces around it. Dynasties have
risen and fallen, the star of em
pire has shone over many nations,
hut amidst all upheavals and
changes it has remained a repub
lie. Yes, fiail Andorra has clung
to its early independence and is
to-day a proof that in the political
as in the natural world the reed
outlives main' hurricanes which
uproot the oak. It is probable
that even now the existence of the
Andorresc would be wrapt in ob
livion to the outside world, had
not the French talked of annexing
the doughty little republic. The
possibility that their independence,
which has survived after its own
peculiar fashion since the days of
Charlemagne, is now in danger of
extinction, causes us to turn with
interest to inquire a little into
Andorra has long been under
the nominal suzerainty or protec
tion of France, and of the bishops
of Urgel Catalan ecclesiastics oi
the old Spanish type. Barely
larger than an ordinary county
its whole area is not much more
than 150 square miles its inhabi
tants are less than 12,000 in num
ber. Their occupations are cattle
raising and charcoal-making, and
they graze their Hocks on the sunm
slopes of the Pyrenees, from which
they cut down the forests for their
fuel. A council-general of twenty
four members, presided over by
two syndics, watches the material
interests of the people. Two
viguiers, or magistrates anu a
tMJgftschgrge the -judicial duties

nominated by France and the
bishop of Urgel, and- the latter
being appointed first by France
and then by the bishop. The
council holds its powers for four
3ears, and is elected in an old
fashioned way, reminding one of
the clan customs of the Scotch.
The heads of four families in each
parish meet together, and choose
one delegate to the council from
each locality. Here begin and
here end the political functions of
the Andorresc. The ballot-box is
as unknown to them as the poll
tax, and the other residents in each
parish are supposed to respect
without question the appointments
made by their patriarchial chiefs.
But the sturdy graziers and hardy
mountaineers are not always so
ready to acquiesce as they should
be, and into Andorra jealousy and
ambition have crept, causing dis
sensions to crop out amongst the
republicans, and transforming
what ought to be the most tranquil
of countries into a region seething
with discord. So bitter has the
conflict become that it has found
the frontier of the republic too
narrow to confine its violence, so
that the partisans on one side have
appealed to the bishop of Urgel
and Spain, while those of the
other have looked to France for
Among the Indian curiosities
which were unearthed where the
new warehouse is being built are
several mortars in fair condition
but with holes in the bottom.
Several pestles of very hard stone
were found that were broken.
These were evidently from the
grave of a chief, it being the cus
tom to spoil such things on the
death of their owner. Two very
small hammers, commonly called
sinkers, were also found and are
said to be the smallest in any col
lection in the state. An elongated
hammer, perlect in shape, and
made from a hard green stone, that
was used to pulverize dried berries,
was also found. Two pestles, one
a foot long and the other nine and
a. half inches, are perfect and good
specimens, also a stone ax as good
as when made. Oregon City En

A Good Little Boy.
Charles was a little boy who
loved his Mother deaily. and
whenever she told him anything
he was sure to Obey.
One day in the Spring, when
the birds were singing and the
buds on the apple-trees were al
most ready to burst into beautiful
white blossoms, Charles asked his
mother lor Ten Cents to buy
Marbles, for the ground was get
ting dry, and the other boys were
beginning to enjoy their faorile
Sport. "You can have the money,
my son' said the Mother, ''but
you must piomise me not to play
for Keeps, and evei night that
you come home and tell me truth
fully that you have not disobeyed
your Mamma, 1 will give you a
Large Bed Apple.' Then he
kissed him Fondly, and he went
gayly away to School.
But before Charley had gone
very far, he met Thomas Tough,
who was a Bad boy. Charles told
Thomas about the Ten Cents that
his Mother had give him to buy
Marbles with, and also told him
that he could not play for Keeps
unless he was willing to go without
the Bed Apple.
When Thomas heard this he
said: "Give me the Marbles you
aie going to buy, and 1 will play
with them for Keeps, and after
School is oflt we will Divide what
I have won, for 1 am a Superior
Player. Then you can truthfully
tell your Motiier that 3011 have
not been playing for Keeps, and
will receive the Bed Apple.'"
So Charles Cave his Marbles to
Thomas, and after School was out
asked him how 111:1113 larblcs he
"I didn't "Win," replied Thomas;
"I struck a Hard Crowd, and
lost." t g
" "Then Charles wafiJ-allfprjTl-o
was a prett3 Tight-Fisted little
boy, and began to Cr3. But
presently he said to Themas:
"You are a naught bo3, and I
hate you Very Much."
And then Thomas hit Charles in
the Nose, and threw him down in
the Dirt, making his new panties
look very bad indeed.
So when Charles reached home
he told his Papa all about his
troubles. When he had finished,
his Papa said to him: "You don't
know as much as Thompson's Colt,
and I'm going to take a Crack at

Charles had lain on his Stomach'

There is a vory marked differ j
ence between the value of exports
from this country during the I
eleven months endim; the 30th of
September last, and a correspond-,
ing period the year previous.
For the present 3car to September
oOth the exports were 4,4:27,000,
and for the corresponding period
last year, 0,1; 1,000 a falling off
of over 3,000,000. The only
article that shows an increase is
salted beef. Our imports continue
to be very large, and unless re
lieved by tho cotton crop now-
coming into market, tho balance of
trade will be against us, and there
must be the exportation of gold to
meet the deficit.
A Canadian medical journal is
the authority for the assertion that
acute articular rheumatism has been
cured by fasting from four to eight

moderate allowance of lemonade
was given to the patients. Dr.
"Wood, of Bishop's college, Mon
