Where the tar-head maiden reposes,
Where the proud Columbia dashes,

As well as Johnny knew bis Daddy, '

Flying off to Acropolis -
How absurd and very silly .
While the Glassy Umatilla m
And the classic Longus Thomas
And the grassy Tuda-Willa
All do flash and flow befoto us.
Well, my hero Kamiakin
Was iu lovo ; you know such folly
Must go in, or something's lacking
In all great good rhymes emctie.
Now, she dwelt in Walla Walla
But her Ma was awful stuck up;
And her pious dad, ascetic,
'Gainst our hero got his back up ;
Aud he swore on stacks of bibles
Higher thau the hay you stack up.
He would sue for breeches, libels ;
He would sue him, shoot him, boot him
That iu fact ho didn't suit him
Did'nt vote the proper ticket.
Now it cost him like the nation
Going from the land of cider,
(You know how these Navigation
Fellows charge a horse aud rider,)
And, though bo was law-abiding,
To be treated thus about her
He declared was rather binding
And that he wouldn't go without her.
So ho strode a Cayuse charger
With white eyes; and also whits as
Foam of creamy, dreamy lager
From her nostrils to her caudle ;
W.th a wooly sheepskin lolding
Back behind his jockey saddle
WJiere tho girl could ride by holding ;
Then while Dad on the piazza
Read the latest act of Andy
And the maid on her piana
Trilled a ditty lor some dandy,
"Chaco, chaco, cumtux, mike?"
From afar in tones cayotc.
"Ah, you bet you, cumtux, nika,"
Sang the maiden sotto vo-ce.
With this sign the chieftain sought her
For tho old man's bull-dog Touzer,
Would have made it rather hut for
Kamiakin, Thaue of Chowder.
Night and day they flew like arrows
'Till they passed by sweet Celilo
' Bully," ciicd the ehie, " tomolio's
Sun will see us bias lolo."
But tho old man missed his daughter,
Vowing he would catch aud score them,
Took the btcuiner, and by water
Reached the Dalles the day before them.
" Stop, you bummer," yelled the Daddy,
While the chief lied to the river,
And the Dad pursued and had a
Henry rifle, bow and quiver.
Then the chief wished him a beaver
Big or little, didn't mind him
But the gal, would you believe bcr,
Stuck like wax, tight on behind him.
Then she waved a wand of willow
And behold the mighty river
(For the inaider was a fairy)
All did surge and shake and shiver.
Till the bunks did kiss, or nearly.
And confine the foaming billow,
So they crossed without a ferry.

Them Lamps. Mr. Murray, of the
"Overland," recently had manufactured a
good sized lamp, to be bung in front of
the hotel to afford travelers and pedes
trians light in navigating the streets
thereabouts these dark nights. The
lamp is six feet in hiirht .and two feet
wide at the bulge, and when painted and
the glass put in ready fur use, will be a
huge affair. It was manufactured by O.
P. Tompkins & Co., and of course is well
got up. Messrs. Ilauek & Mycr, of the
new hotel directly opposite the "Over
land," we understand, have given orders
to the same firm to manufacture a lamp
at least one-third larger than Murray's,
and when the two are lighted npo nights
people in that vicinity will have no trouble
in navigating the streets, no matter bow
dark it is. Bully for the lamps.

"Come back, come back, O Piccaninny
Back serosa the stormy water,"
Cried the old man like a ninny.

While the other-held ber garter

And the river so is flowing.
Though wider washed a foot or so.
For this was in the gleaming, glowing.
Gilded, golden long ago.
Then they fled far down tbe river,
But the old man came upon them.
And she cried ' O Lord, deliver;"
And she blew a silver trumpet.
And she cried, "O hiac jump it,"
Till tho Cavus i jumped the river
Jumped the awl'ul yawning chasms
With tho lovers both astride her
Ah, enough to throw in spasms,
llelles of this sweet land of cidar.
But the Daddy, but and marling
At. the' chief and chieftain's darling,
Itip and thigh smote with his sabre
While the cuitn was crossing.
And her silver tail was tossing ;
And her long tail, white and shaggy,
Cleft, where Tarn O Shantcr's C'arlin.
Caught the tail of faithful Maggie.
And that horse tail still is flowing
.From the dark rim of the river,
. Drifting, shifting, flowing, going,
Like a veil or vision .flurried,
But is never combed or eurried.
As a body can diskiver. -

As she with her lover vamoosed ;

And is known onto this bonr

Then the maiden cried ont ' dam it,"
And the stream was dammed instanter.
So the cbieftain'reached his nation
And his mother gave a party
Gave a July celebration, -And
they dinnered very hearty
All on koose and salmon smoky.
And then danced the boky poky.
But her troubles grew the thicker
As in truth so did the maiden.
For the chief began to lick her
And distract her with upbraiding;
But she had to grin and bear it .
For the gods had got so mad, they
Said she never should repass tbe
Place she left her dear old Daddy.
So she went up in the hill-tops

Singular Occurrence. Under the
heading " Spiritual Manifestation" the
Salem Statesman tells the following : An
engineer running a steamer on one of the
tributaries of the Upper Willamette was
Beizcd by the coat collar by some spirit
ual influence and shook nearly out of his
boots. The shaking up process ceased
but to commence again, each time being
more prolonged. Finally the engineer
recognized the proceedings as " spiritual
influence." and rushing to the boiler
found it empty and an explosion immi
nent. Of course the boat was run ashore,
and all escaped, except those who remain
ed to throw water.on the fire and hoist the
safety-valve. The escape of the boat and
nassensers- was most fortunate, and if
spiritual manifestations always result as
beneficially as iu this case, count us ia
favor of " spiritual manifestations.

Thk Swedish Licenbe System. In
Sweden the licensing of dramshops is
controlled in this way : The public-house
licenses for the sale of liquors are put up
at auction, and are sold for cash to the
highest bidder, thus becoming a consid
erable source of revenue to the commu
The hours or cloiirg ate nxea ana
strictly adhered to. bo liquor may be
sold to a child or a drunkard, and money
cannot be recovered for liquor sold oa
credit. The bars provide warm food, tea
and coffee, and these to a certain extent
supplant intoxicating drinks.
This plan has been in operation for
some years in different parts ef Sweden,
with the following results : ; Twenty-five
years ago the -annual consumption of
home-made - brandy in Sweden was 25,
000,000 gallons ; now it is not more than
6,000,000. The purchases of licenses
by companies began in Gottenburg in
1854, and in 1867. the Company Jiad se
cured all the licenses in the city, with en
tire control of the retail sales. Figures
show the result in 1865, according to
the polioe reports, 2,078 persons were
fined for drunkenness ; in 1866, 1.423 .
in 1867, , 1.375; and in 1868, 1,372.
The eases of delirium tremens in the
hospitals have diminished in proportion,
and in this seaport of 60,000 inhabitant
cases of intoxication are noW rarelj seen
in the streets. .' V- , '. ; ,
