We were doomed to drift about some

would whistle softly and enticingly or
would change his tone and with pouted
lips whistle angrily and viciously for
Kie wind that would not come to help
us on. I have often wondered what
can have been the origin of whistling
for the wind. That the custom Is of
undoubted practical'utility is the firm
belief of many races of seafarers, from
the English sea captain to the bumble
Malay kamudi. I was on one occasion
very roughly spoke a to by a captain In
the Irish channel for casually whistling
In a gale of .wind. He thought It a
piece of gross carelessness on my part
which might lead to serious conse
quences. Here in Celebes, too, I was
Warned to be careful not to laugh when
the kamudi screwed his face up into
an intensely ludicrous expression of
feigned passion and whistled angrily
for the wind to come, for the Malay
seaman's belief la the efficacy of this
mode of raising the wind is a serious
one and will not brook being made an
object of derision. Soon after midnight
a favorable breeze sprang up, and by
Bunrise we were passing the little is
lands of Ganga and Tindela. Sidney

Into graciousness. Once a junior mem
ber of a British consulate was sent to
Interview the viceroy on some matter.
In the vast audience hall he found no
one to receive him, so he took a chuir

following appeared at, the other end of
the hall on some lofty seats, and the
viceroy started shouting to him in the
difficult Anhui accent To the utter
dumf bunding of every one present, 'con
trary to all principles of Chinese eti
quette, tke young Englishman shouted
back his answer in the same loud,
rough voice as far as he could imitate
it in which LI had spoken to him. Ev-
ery one in the suit was stricken with
horror. Even Li started and spoke low'

A Defense of Slang-.
So fAr from being an evidence of a
national levity and lack of seriousness
slang is the language of sincerity. It
Is the result of an instinctive effort to
get as far away as possible from every
thing like pretentiousness. It la the
antipodes of bathos. It Is the lan
guage of the whole people, because It
Is expressive of the national sense of
humor that Is neyer so keen as when
It contemplates with a joy likewise
unutterable the spectacle presented by
a fake exposed. It Is blunt, it Is crude,
it is brutal sometimes, but It is always
sinocre. It directs against the citadels
of evil the mighty enginery of laugh
ter. It does for our nascent abuses

In his memoirs Adolf Kussmaul re
lates a curious story of a Heidelberg
banker. This banker was known for
his haughty, forbidding manners; con
sequently Dr. Nubn, the professor of
anatomy, was much surprised one day
when the banker came and sat with
him in a railway car and, after a pleas
ant chat, asked him all sorts of ques
tions, especially, about the anatomy of
the heart. The next day he even called
by permission In the medical depart
ment and watched the professor dis
secting one of those organs. Then be
drove home, and a few hours later It
became known that he had committed
suicide by skillfully plunging a dagger

,. Editor Courier: Permit me to occu
py space in your valuable paper to reply
to a "bluff" of Sheriff Shaver in the last
issue qf the Enterprise in which he "of
fers to pay to any 'reputable', 'represen
tative' Democrat the sum of $100, who
will prove by the records of Clackamas
county, that the Sheriff's office under
his administration, from ( July 1,1902,
until July 1, 1903, hbs cost the taxpay
ers within $350 of what it cost from July
1, 1901, to July 1, 1902, under Ex-Sheriff
To beuin with Mr. Shaver, let me say
that you are not willing to accept the
figures of your own County Clerk as evi
dence in the matter, and are not willing ,
to stand by your own repoits, after your
officers Lave certified to them as being
correct, and have;published in the coun
ty paper, paying the taxpayers money
therefor. It would, Indeed, be difficult
to produce any evidence which would .
convince vou that your administration
of the Sheriff's office has been more ex
pensive thanjthat of Mr. Cooke.
In your statement of the expenses of
your office you see fit to estimate from
July 1, 1902, to July 1, 1903, possibly ',.
for the reason that, we have no Official .
report at the present time covering that ;
period of your office, although such re-
ports have been made by all your pre
decessors in the Clerk's office; and
since you are 10 anxious to reckon from
these dates, it woulH seem to a reasons- .
ble.person that we should have some of
ficial figures covering theee dates you
have prepared, especially for cam
paign purposes, a ."statement?" and
you ask the voters to believe this "state
ment", rather than your own official re
ports, which seems very .unreasonable
I have not had the opportunity of ex
aminiig the statement you have had
"prepared," but have no doubt it makes
the showing whlch you claim for it, as
you had it "specially" prepared for this
campaign ; but I do say, it does not agree
with your official reports, which reports
WERE NOT MADR FOR CAMPAIGN THUNDER,
but were made as a part of your official
duties, and which ought to be correct.
I lake from the official reports the
following figures : Costs of Sheriff and
Clerk's office from April 1, 1901, to
April r, 1902, $6982.78; to April 1, 1902,
till April 1, 1903, $7120.87; to April 1,
1903 to April 1, 1904, $8103.10.
Will you dar deny these figures?
You claim, and so does the Clerk, to be
saving money, and yet your own reports
show that these offices, as Bhown above.
have cost more than $1200 more from
April 1, 1903, to April 1, 1904. all under
the present administration,they did from
April 1, 1901, to April 1, 1902, under
Cooke and Cooper's administration.
Furthermore, during the last year of
Cooke and Cooper, aa shown above,the7
conducted a sale of old taxes, known as
'junk" taxes, which required great
deal of labor and clerical work in both
offices; the same being taxes for the
years 92, 93, 94 and 90, and yetlyou and
the present clerk are over f 1200 more
expensive than they were.
I submit that from April to April, next
year, is no greater duration of time that
from July to July, and it ought to be
practically the same amount of money
to run these offices during the one time
as the other. I further submit : The rea
son that you are not willing to figure
from April to April, next, ia because we
have official figures covering that period.
while for the dates you use we have not
which gives you a chance to make an
"estimate" of your, own liking, and
which' contradicts the certified report of
the County Clerk.
From a careful perusal of the figures
and facta herein set forth, I think any
"reputable, representative" Democrat,
or Republican, would lay that I am en
titled to. your $10o; TROVIDED, of
course, you think me a "reputable,
representative" Democrat, of which fact
you would have been a competent judge
while In the party?
