Editor Gazette: As it is Christmastime,
the season that, perhaps', more than any
other, brings to our minds memories of other
days and friends most dear ; it would seem
si lit time for correspondence.
It has been my intention, ever since I
came oil this reservation, as soon as I was
sufficiently acquainted to enable me to give
a correct statement, and put a just estimate
on the condition of things hire, to write an
article for your paper ; and light here I am
admonished, by a correspondent of the Sa
lem Statesman, " that no reliance whatever
can be placed in statements 'that go out from
this reservation," they being such exagger
ations. I shall feel somewhat relieved from
any fear orr this point in writing for your
paper, knowing that most of your readers
are sufficiently acquainted with mo to enable
them to make all due allowance for the " ex
aggeration." As a general rule, the Indians here
are industrious and are trying to make
a living for themselves ; they no mor
live in groups, as separate tribes, but
have, nearly all of them, or at least the
heads of families, taken their land as sur
veyed, and have built houses on the same
and are making, some more and some less,
improvements. I cannot say just how many
houses there are, I counted something over
a hundred and twenty, last Summer, soon af
ter I came here, and they are constantly build
ing as fast as the mill cau supply lumber.
These houses range all the way from twelve
to fourteen feet square, up to one eighteen by
thirty-five, with a kitchen running back
with porch and woodshed. Quite a number
of them have good barns, with granaries to
hold their crops. Some of them still make
their beds on the floor, while perhaps one
half have bedsteads and tables, and perhaps
one-third of them have their cooking stoves;
and, indeed, some of their houses would
lose nothing by comparison with many of the
whites. As a gtneral rule they go decently
dressed, and many of them are extravagant
in dress, wearing clothes that are more costly
than their circumstances would justify ;
in this respect they arc about like white
The school is in a prosperous condition, j
for an Indian school ; an average daily at- j
tendance of over fifty children, five or six
of these are white children, belonging to j
employes. As for the progress of the chil- j
dren, all things considered, it is all that j
could be expected. In order to obviate the
difficulty arising from the distance that i
many of the children have to come to school,
provis'on is made to furnish them their din
ners, in the shape of a lunch, and they are
furnished, to some extent, with clothing,
and the little girls are taught to make their
own clothes. Steps are being taken to build
a boarding house, the material for which is
mostly on the ground, and, as I understand,
the carpenters are only waiting for the foun
dation to be laid, to raise the building; when
this is done the school will be converted in
to a manual labor school, where the girls
will be educated in all the arts of house
keeping while the boys will be required to
work on the farm, or at trades, and all will
be kept at the school and away from the in
fluences of their former Indian habits.
We have a well organized church, under
the efficient and zealous labors of Rev. T.
F. Iioyal. aided and sustained by most of
the employes, in which our excellent agent
takes a very deep interest, and is a most ef
fectual worker. I cannot see but the In
dians are as orderly in their deportment as
the whites, and asSlncere in their profes
sions. I know of but one standard by which
we can judge of the genuineness of any
man's religion, and 1 did not make that
standard. "Judge the tree by itsfruits, " is
the only rule I know, and tested by this rule,
the Indians here lose nothing by comparison
with whites. In the application of any rule,
we must ever bear in mind "that where
little is given little is required." As for the
progress in industrial pursuits, it is certainly
onward. By a late circular to the agent,
each employe is required to take two ap
prentices, to be instructed in the different
departments of labor.
We also have, by instructions from Wash
ington, a police force, whose duty it is to
keep order on the reservation, which is di
vided into districts, and each district is as
signed to a policeman, who reports to the
Chief of Police, who is a white man and one
of the employes. The remainder of the
force are Indians. This works admirably.
It has had a good effect, so far, in checking
crime on the reservation, and we recently
had a fine illustration of its beneficial effects
on a certain class of white men. Not long
since a white man came on the reaervation
about noon, and stopped at an Indian house,
in sight of and within a mile of the agency.
The Indian tried to get him- to ge- to the
agency, but he refused. So when it was
dark the Indian, fearing that this man was
after no good, gave notice to the police,
whereupon he was arrested, and in the ab
sence of the agent, brought up to head-qtiar-tera
and not being abie to give a satisfac-

tion. Wnile on-his way, ne conie3sea to w
Indian that his object was to get a squaw
for a wife, and live among the Indians ; that
he had had one squaw wife and wanted an
other. This is the man that the correspond
ent of the Salem Statesman 'says got "lost
and wandered here," and gives a doleful ac
count of our unchristian treatment of a
poor wanderer. If the3e lines should c hance
to be read by that correspondent, who signs
his name " A-meri-cus," or any other cus, be
it known to him or any such sympathizers
with this class of persons that get lost and
find their way here, on the same business,
that they shall be furnished with the same
kind of quarters. Whether the 'Indians
here are making advancement iu other res
pects, or not, they do not propose to furnish
any more wives to men that call themselves
white, and yei are too low down to get
wives among their own people.
Now, I would liite to tell you .T gre:it deal
more, but I have already made this article
too long ; but next time you visit the Bay,
just come up and see us, and we will show
you over the re ervation, and then you can
j-udge for yourself. We cordially invite all
candid persons, that desire to know how
things are managed here, to come and see
for themselves. This is the way to get at
the truth. Those persons who are writing
against the Agency and representing it as a
failure, as a rule, will te found to be either
employes that have been discharged for
cause, or persons aspiring to places here and
have failed to get them. Yours truly.

A Eiirallc on Tobacco.
Then shall the kingdom of Satan be lik
ened unto a s;rain of tobieco seed, which,
though exceedingly small, being cast into
the ground, grew and became a great plant,
and spread its leaves rank and broad, so that
huge and vile worms found a habitation
thereon- And it came to pass, in the course
of time, that the sons of men looked upon
it, and thought it beautiful to look up
on, and much to be desired to make lads
look big and manly.
So they put forth their hand, and did chew
them. Ami some it made sick, and others
to vofuit most filthily. And it further came
to pass, that those who chewed it baeame
weak and unmanly, and said, We are en
slaved, and cannot cense from chewing it.
And the mouths of all that were enslaved
became foul, and they were seized with a
violent spitting ; and they did spit even in
ladies' parlors and in the house of the Lord
Ami the saints of the Most High were
greatly plagued thereby.
And, in the course of time, it came also
to pass that others snuffed it; and they were
taken suddenly with fits, and they did sneeze
with a great and mighty noise, insomuch
thai; their eyes were tilled with tears, and
they did look exceedingly silly.
And vet others amusingly Wrought the
leaves thereof into rolls, and did set fire to
one end thereof, and did look very grave
and cali-like ; and the smoke of their tor
ment ascendeth up forever and ever.
And the cultivation thereof became a
great and mighty business in the earth ; and
the merchantmen have waxed rich by the
commerce thereof. And it came to pass,
that the saints of the Most High defiled
themselves therewith, and said, Wherefore
this waste ? and why do these little ones
lack bread and shoes and books ?
Turn now your fields into corn and wheat,
and put the evil thing far from you, and be
separate, and defile not yourselves any
more ; and I will bless you, and cause my
face to shine upon you.
But, with one accord they all exclaimed,
We cannot cease, from chewing, snuffing,
and puffing ; we are slaves. Rligious Telescope.
Evils among Young Mem. Of a1! the
evils prevalent among young men, we know
of none more blighting in its moral effects
than to speak lightly of the-virtues of a
woman. Now is there anything in which
young men are so thoroughly mistaken as
the low estimate they form as to the integ
rity of women. Not of their own mothers
and sisters, but of others, who, they forget,
are somebody else's mothers and' sisters.
As a rule, no person who surrenders to thi's
debasing habit is to be trr.stcd with an en
terprise requiring integrity of character.
Plain words should be spoken on this sub
ject, for the evil is a general one and deep
rooted If young men are sometimes thrown
into society of thoughtless or depraved wo
men, they have no more right to measure
all other "women by what they see of these,
than' they have to estimate the character of
honest and respectable citizer.s by the de
velopments of crime in our police courts.
Let onr young men remember that their
chief happiness in life depends upon utter
faith in women. Ho worldly wisdom, no
misanthropic philosophy, no generalization,
can cover or weaken truth. It stands like
the record of itself for it is nothing less
than this and should put an everlasting
seal upon lips that are Wont to speak slight
ly of women.
Golden Moments. How sorry one would
be- for a man who, starting out upon a jour
ney, had his pockets full of golden- coin
which, one by one, had slipped through
some unmeiutett hole or rent, so that wnen
he came to the end of his trip he had no one
left, but lay down upon his bed a beggar.
How strictly we would look to our own
pockets after hearing the tale, and make
verv sure that what coin we have should be
well spent, or hoarded carefully, and not
scattered in the roadside dust. iet we start
out upon our lives, each one of us with" a
store of golden moments of which we keep
little account. Kapidly they slip avay
through the rents of sloth or ignorance.
Many a one, rich it a 1 the golden moments
of severity years, lies down at last scarcely
able to remember how he has frittered and
scattered them; knowing only that he has
no more that all are gone, and that he can
not say that he has purchased anything ot
use to himself or another with what might
have bought so much.
Starting m the World.- Many an un
wise parent labors hard ami lives sparingly
all his life lor the purpose ot leaving enougn
to rive his children a start iu the world, as
it is called. Setting a young man afloat
with money left him by his relatives is like
tying bladders under the arms of one who
cannot swim ; ten chances to one he will
lose his bladders and go to the bottom.
Teach binvto swim, and he will never need
the bladders. Give your child a sound ed
ucation, and you have done enbugh for him.
See to it that his morals are pure, his mind
cultivated, and his whole nature subservient
to the laws which govern man, and you
have given what will be of more value to
him than the wealth of the Indies.
VW TO' THE TEST.
" But, suppose he should recognize
me after all, Helen?"
" Not a bit of danger of that, May,
you are too well ' got up,' thanks to
your humble servant."
u Well, let n.e take a long, last lin
gering look at myself, and I'm off"
and she stepped to the glass and sur
veyed herself. She gave a little laugh.
" Ugh ' how my teeth gleam through

diess and worn cotton gloves. Who
would look for the ' rich and flattered
heiress ' in this guise ? Here, let me
adjust your veil. There, you'll do now
for a poor widow of 35, I think."
" Well, Helen, I hope that we may
find that Henry Smith has been slan
dered," -was the rejoinder ; " but I
could never promise to marry him with
such a doubt unsolved."
"No indeed. May. But go, my
blessings will follow you," she added,
Down the back stairs stole the qui
et, poverty-stricken looking little wo
man, and gained the street by a back
alley. Draw-in" her rusty crape veil
elof-ely down over her face, she walked
slowly alonf till she reached the door
which bore the name of " H. Smith,
Solicitor." Ascendinp-, she stood at
the office door and tapped timidly.
' Come in," was the rejoinder from
Timidly and tremblingly May push
ed open the office door of the man who
but the day previously besought her to
become his wife.
Henry Smith sat at a table which
was strewn with law papers, his feet
thrown over the arm of a chair and a
half consumed cigar in his teeth.
Ctisting a glance at the meek looking
little figure bt fore him, which glance
seemed ro assure him that there was no
call for politeness on his part, he leaned
back in his chair and remarked:
" Well, madame, what do you
" Can this be the exquisite Mr.
Smith, who is so courteous to ladies in
society V thought she. But she said
in a "voice that trembled from sup
pressed excitement, " Will you please
let. me be seated a moment, sir (1 am
not strong, and the stairs have taken
" Chairs over by the window there,"
was the reply, but he never lowered
his feet from- the one oil which they
rested, or laid aside his cigar.
After a moment's pause, in which
the pale, dark woman seemed to collect
breath and composure, she said, draw
ing a paper from her pocket :
" If yon please, I called to see you
for chanity. My husband was killed
six months ago by a fall from a build
ing, and left me penniless. I worked
and earned a meagre support for my
self and little ones by copying, until I
was no longer able to get even that to
do. Being ill with overwork and anx
iety, I could no longer support my lit
tle family and my children have been
taken to the work house. People who
had known how hard I had worked for
them have helped mo a little, and so I
have been saved from going there too.
If I can succeed in keeping along for a
few days, until I have a little more
strength, I hope to obtain work, and
be afcle to take care ot mysell again.
Here is a paper with the names of those
who knew me, and know that I am uot
an imposter, and who have helped me
in my illness and poverty."
Not a word from Henry Smith all
the while, but he coolly puffed the
" Will you help ne a little from your
abundant means ?" pleaded the poor
" O, dear '" yawned he " I wish
beggars could be abolished by statute."
Then to the woman, - Really, madame,
your story is well got up ; but so far
as I am concerned, no beggars need a p
plyf If yon can't support yourself,
why, go to the work house. That's the
place for such as you."
' But sir "
" My dear woman, there's the door,
I can't be bothered any longer."
Slowly and sadly the poor woman
wended her way down the stairs and
down the street until the corner shut
her from sight, and then fairly flew un
til she reached the residence of one of
wealthiest gentlemen in the city.
Here she rushed in the front door, and
unceremoniously up stairs into the
pretty room she had shortly before left.
Tearing off the widow's garment's, she
was soon engaged in telling her friend
Helen the result of her mission.
"It's just as you told me, Helen,
Henry Smith has no more heart than a
block of wood, and no more polite
ness ; " and her cheeks burned as she
thought of his rudeness. "And to
think he should come here and be so
devoted and polite to me, when it is all
false to his true nature ! Thank heav
en ! I've found him out in time."
Helen laughed softly and said :
" What answer shall you give' him
this evening, May i "
" Wait until evening, and see," was
the reply, as May went on with her be
Meanwhile Henry Smitli, after men
tally condemning all beggars to torture,
slowly betook himself to his lodgings.
and arrayed himself for the purpose of
calling to receive ins answer from the
young lady of his aifeetions ; but in the
midst of thoughts of her, the pale face
of the dark little widow would intrude
"Confound that creature?" solilo
quized he, as he neared the mansion.
" i can't keep her out of my mind.
There was something familiar about

for your answer. Don't keep me in
suspense another moment. Is the
treasure mine ? "
With painful distinctness every
word of the answer smote upon his
" O dear ! I wish beggars could be
abolished by statute."
He opened his eyes and stared at
her ; then the truth seemed to burst
" May ! Miss Bailey ! " he gasped;
" what is this 1 "
" Really, sir, your story is well got
ten up, but so far as I am concerned
no beggars need apply."
Catching up his hat, Henry Smith
left the house in such a hurry that the
hall door slammed. If he did not gain
the heiress and her money, let us hope
he gamed in wisdom and charity.
In damn houses lurk the causes of
many grave diseases. Many a valua
ble life has owed its extinguishment to
a damp bedroom. In the Southern
States, and in California, where the
winter is a "weS season " this portion of
the year, is that in which dampness is
generally prevalent. In the parlor
and the " spare bedroom " the damp
ness sometimes becomes so great that
it condenses in large drops upon the
ceiling and waHs. Mold frequently
makes its appearance, adding to tle
chilling dampness another danger, that
of germ poisoning Vapors laden with
organic matter ascend from the kitchen
arise from cooking vegetables and,
dispersing themselves through the
dwelling, condense upon the cold walls
of the unwarmed rooms. Soon- decom
position of the organic matter sets in'
and poisonous germs and gases are de
veloped. Colds, croup, diptberia, ca
tarrh, consumption, rheumatism, neu
ralgia, goitre, cerebro-spinal mfeningi
tis, and numerous other diseases, origi
nate in damp dwelling rooms.
During the damp season, which in
cludes in most localities, the autumn,
winter and spring months, every occu
pied room should be wanned and aired
daily. When possible, every room
should also be daily sunned. When
there can lie no stove in a room, it
may be warmed from an adjoining
room ; if a sleeping room, the bed'
clothing should be daily carried to the
fire to be warmed and aired. This
should be done in the afternoon, on-
damp days, so that the sheets may "not
become damp by absorption' of moisture
tefore the bed is occupied at night.
When this plan is inconvenient or in
expedient, the room' and Bedding may
be quite easily dried by means of a
small gas or .kerosene oil stove, several
very excellent patterns of which are
now manufactured. A man could
scarcely suffer greater abuse at the
hands of a friend than to be put into a
damp, musty spare bed, in a damp,
moldy, unsunned, unventilated spare,
bedroom. -Health A?mu(.tl.
Waste No Time. -Time lost can never
be regained. After allowing yourself prop
er time for rest, don't live a single hour of
your life without doing exactly what is to
be done irt it, and going straight through it
from beginning to end. Work, play, study,
whatever it is, take hold at once and finish
it ud souarelv and clearly : then to the next
thing, without letting any moments drop
out between. It i. wonderful to see how
many hours these prompt people contrive to
make of a day ; it is as if they had picked
up the moments that the dawdlers lost.
And if ever vou have so many things press
ed upon vou that you hardly hnow where to
begin, let usr tell you a secret. Take hold
of the very "first -ene" that comes to hand, and
you will find the rest all fall into file, and
follow after, like a company of well-drilled
soldiers ; and, though work may be hard to
meet when it charges in a squad, is easily
vanquished if you can bring it into line.
If it rests between a new hat and another
dog, get the dog and make the old hat hold
over. Economy is Wealth.
A man may have weaknesses of character
and yet be great; but no maa can be great
who has any littleness of mind.
