18 HEAVEN WE'LL KNOW OUR OWN.
BY HANNAH J. M'lNTOSH
Thank God for the fajth that teaches,
When the struggles of life are o'er,
We shall meet our own our loved ones,
And shall know them ajl once more !
What matter though, life be dreary,
And we tread its paths alone ?
If, when the journey is ended,
In Heaven we'll know our own ?
Sometimes when fate's frowns are darkest.
And clouds hide the fair, blue sky,
For the tender love of the lost ones,
Our souls will vainly cry ;
Then, sweetly over our spirit,
Hushing the heart's wild moan, ,. .
Comes the whisper of faith be patient
And, in Heaven we'll know our own.
And life and its cares grow brighter,
In the light of this precious thought ;
When the conflict, at last, is over,
And the battle of life is fought,
If we work in faith and submission,
The victory shall be won ;
And in Heaven where rest awaits us,
We shall meet and know our own.
Ah ! how will it he, I wonder,
Shall those who were dearest here
Be dearest again in Heaven ? , '
Or think you when we stand so near
The throne of a loving Father,
That his children, every one,
Shall seem equally dear to each other ?
Can any be like our own ?
I wonder but there no matter ;
This belongs to the great to be ; t
And, we'll see these things more clearly
In the light of eternity.
'Tis enough to know if we're faithful,
Till the labor of life is done,
In the " sweet by and by in Heaven
We shall meet and know our own.
A TRIBUTE OF RESPECT.
Bellaire, Ohio, Feb. 26, 1S79.
To the Editor of the Coevallis Gazette :
Mr. W. B. Carter Dear Sir : Permit
me to write you a few lines in regard to the
sad death of mv young and esteemed friend,
Charles A. Brailley, for it is with deep and
painful regret I ask your permission to do
so. Having on my table a copy of the Cor
vallis Gazette, forwarded by His Honor
Judge MeFadden, of your place, to Mr,
Phil. Brailly, the father of the deceased,
and handed by him to me ; therein I find
yor article headed "Tired of Life Suicide. :'
That is bad it hardly could be worse. But
is it possible he was tired of life ? No, I
think not ; for he was like unto the rose just
bursting forth to bloom, but faded and died.
What, then, was the cause of his rash act ?
Was he sane or insane ? If he had been a
sane man he never could have performed the
act of self-destruction. But you say there
must be some cause at the bottom of it.
Yes, sir, I will give you the cause, and facts
in the case as near as I can. But first per
mit me to say that I have been acquainted
with the family for the last ten years, and
intimately acquainted with Charley for the
last three years ; so that there is not one
act of his life that could bring a blush to his
parent's cheek or a tear to their eyes until
he performed the sad act of his death. We
have here in this city, Mr. Editor, from
eight to ten thousand souls, and not one
among them that knew Charley but regrets
his death at so early an age ; as he was only
22 years and 4 months old at the time of his
death. He was a practical workman at his
trade, being taught by his father, who is a
practical workman and draftsman in the
stair building and cabinet line, and has a
large factory here for manufacturing coffins,
on which he has a patent right. But depres
sion in trade during the last four years, set
his father to thinking that the best thing he
could do for his sons was to get them to take
hold of the laud ; and for that purpose sent
his son Charley to Oregon, so that he could
rjport to him what prospect there was in
that State for emigrating. It is true, also,
that he did not want his son to marry a cer
tain young lady of this township on account
of hereditary consumption in her father's
family. Charley did not insist on a mar
riage with her, for if he had, he need not
have gone to Oregon ; nor did his father in
sist on him doing so; he went voluntarily by
the consent of his parents. But Charley
was of a sensitive nature, and his perception
must be great, indeed, at the time he com
mitted the rash act. God grant that his
soul had time to reflect and call on his Ma
ker for forgiveness, before it departed from
the body, is the prayer of all who knew him.
But, Mr. Editor, you say on the the fatal
day of his death, he mailed a letter to his
father ; if so, his father never got it. The
only intimation his father had of his leaving
Corvallis, was a postal card dated January
7th, stating that he had made up his mind
to leave there, and that he had just enough
of money to take him where he was going,
but would need some more. So his father
cent him five dollars in a letter, which must
have got there on or about the fatal day of
his death. The next letter his father got
was dated January 25th, post marked Janu
uary 27th, asking for a ticket to come home.
That letter got here six days after his death.
If he had only waited for the answer of that
letter, he would have received all he asked
for. His elder brother is now preparing to
leave here for Oregon, to fulfill the mission
that Charley failed to fulfill. The parents
and friends of the deceased return their
thanks to the citizens of Corvallis, for the
respect paid to their son, particularly to Mr.
August Knight, undertaker, Judge McFad
den, and Timothy Donohne..
I mus now close this, bidding my deceased
Farewell, my dear young friend, farewell.
No more shall we meet on earth,
But in that land where angels dwell,
Our greeting will be next.

from our regular correspondent. J
New York, Feb. 27, 1879.
ACTOR and preacher.
Moralists can strike an easy balance be
tween New York's regard for recreation and
and religion respectively, by comparing ac
tors' earnings with preachers'. Beecher gets
$20,000 ; Edwin Booth, $100,000 a year.
Dr. Hall, of Fifth avenue, and Dr. Dix, of
Trinity, get $15,000 ; while E. A. Sothern
earns over $150,000 as Lord Dundreary, and
John E. Owens plays thirty weeks annually
for $90,000. Tallmage preaches for $12,000,
and Joe Jefferson plays forty weeks at Rip
Van Winkle and earns $120,000. The
scholarly and gifted Dr. Storrs has $10,000
salary, and Maggie Mitchell earns $30,000 to
$50,000. Dr. Cuyler works hard and faith
fully for $8,000 a year, and Dr. Hepworth
for $5,000, while Dion Boucicault has just
finished a season as the " Shaugraun," etc.,
at $3,003 a week, and his mairger3 scold
him iii the public prints because he would
not plav longer at the same price.
Dr. Potter, of Grace Church, has $10,000
and a parsonage ; the eloquent Dr. Tiffany
has $10,000 ; the once vigorous, now vener
able, Dr. Chapin gets $10,000 : while pretty
Miss Jveilson makes over jl.u,00Ua yenr,
and Fanny Davenport earns $ 1.000 a week,
every week she plays. Common players
get starvation wages, and so do common
ministers. I know preachers, within 75
miles, who work like beavers for $300 to
$400, while the averape salary of American
clergymen is about $500 equal to the pay
of a horse-car conductor.
A FIRM OF CHILD POISONERS.
At Bliss vile, L. I., is a stable, containing
800 cows who never see the sunlight, never
breathe the outer air, take no exercise, stand
month after month in a stall 42 inches wide,
live on hot distillery swill and furnish
milk to our children. Their food and mode
of life have an effect upon the poor creatures
which I dare not describe ; hut it produces
what the sanitary officer calls a " filth -sod
den atmosphere," which the cows breathe
over and over until their lungs become dis
eased and their bodies heated by a consum
ing fever. In a manly burst of indignation
this official exclaims :
"Could any device of man or fiend be con
trived which would sooner or more effectu
ally depopulate a community ? " The offi
cers asked to see the sick cows, and were
promptly told there was not a sick one in
the stables. They searched till they were
wearied without finding one well cow ! Sev
eral had plenro-pneumonia, others had fe
ver, all kidney and In.wel trouble, the
cows never leave the stables after entering,
until, giving no more milk, they are " fat
tened," driven to the slaughter-house and
we eat their poisoned bodies ! Previous at
tempts have been made to suppress this aw
ful business, but the firm is immensely rich,
and our local laws proved "ineffective."
Now the Governor has taken the case in
hand and the Legislature will be asked for
necessary authority. Indignation finds no
words scorching enough to apply to the men
owning and operating these stable3.
ANOTHER OPENING TRADE HONEY.
England was startled a few weeks ago by
the arrival of 80 tons of American Honey in
the comb, which was landed in good condi
tion and sold at a fair price. No attempt
had heretofore been made to export honey
in comb, and this successful venture is due
to the enterprise of Messrs. H. K. & F. B.
Thurber & Co. , the leading wholesale groc
ery house of New York. From them I
learn the surprising fact that bee culture is
not carried on to any extent in America,
except in New York state and California ;
that California honey, after paving threo
cents per pound freight, brings about ten
per cent, less here than state honey, and
that it can be produced profitably at three
to five cents per pound under prudent man-:
agement. If this be true what a vast and
profitable industry it might be made to
America ! What other sweet can be pro
duced at that figure ? Honey is equally de
sirable for a score of uses with either sugar
or syrup. Why, if it is so much cheaper,
should it not lor many purposes supplant
those costly sweets, and become with us, as
with the ancients, an important article of
England cannot help buying our honey,
for her flora is far inferior to ours in honey
producing qualities and her farmers still use
the old conical hive and kill their bees to
jet the honey. Our clover fields are limit
less and every state is capable, without di
minishing its other products, of growing
more honey than New York state now does.
The Pall Mall Gazette commenting on this
initial shipment exclaims: "There seems
to be uo limit to the provisions with which
America is prepared to supply us. uur
honey crop amounts, with the business in
its swaddling clothes, to 35 million pounds
One firm paid to one bee-keeper for his sea
son's crop a sum larger than the salary of
President Hayes. Over half a bee's time is
consumed in building the comb cells, but an
enterprising Yankee, Mr. W. M. Hoge, has
invented a beeswax foundation for the comb,
which the bees work over into cells in a tri
fling time, and appear not to know the dif
ference. They insist, however, on pure
wax, and will not work any that is the least
adulterated. Hoge is smart I Any rnan
who can fool a bee deserves a monm'.-Vent !
Combs are, besides, lcing saved by a new
process. The caps or outer ends of the hon
ey cells are shaved off. the comb placed on
a revolving frame, and the honey is expelled
by centrifugal force, and the empty, unin
jured frame goes back to the hive for refill
ing. Is not this growing industry worth
careful consideration by our farmers ?

J. H. Brown,
Leader State University Cornet Band.
Editor Gazette : I have observed the
run of events for fifty yea-s past in refer
ence to persons living in towns and cities.
It is necessary and proper for mechanics,
merchants, professional men, and men en
gaged in commerce to congregate in towns.
But at least one-sixth of all the citizens in
our towns should be away from them. Day
laborers and teamsters incline to crowd into
the towns, and there are attractions there
for them. The glitter and show of citv life,
the amusements and sights to be seen there,
all attract and amuse the masses. And
there are many vices and habits in those
towns which allure young people to their
ruin unlesa their training is superior. Thous
ands of poor folks in those towns, forgetting
their depleted circumstances try to keep up
a show of grandeur far beyond their ability.
Many resort to gambling and other bad ways
of gain, and make shipwreck of their char
acters and scanty means. It is hard to in
duce people who have lived much in towns
to leave and take up with rural habits.
Thousands of them become hopelessly in
volved in debt and never pay. In this
country where there is land for the landless,
and homes for the homeless, all such persons,
should move into homes of their own, and
live above want.
Don't think when you have won a wife
that you have also won a slave.
Don't think that your wife has less feel
ing than your sweetheart. Her relation
ship to you i.s simply changed, not her na
ture. Dou't think that you can dispense with all
the little civilities of life toward her on mar
rying. She appreciates those things quite as
much as other women.
Don't be gruff and rude at home. Had
you been that sort of a fellow before mar
riage, the probabilities are that you would
be sewing on your own buttons still. ,
Don't make your wife feel that she is an
incumbrance on you by giving her grudging
ly. What she needs, give as cheerfully as
if it were a pleasure so to do. She will feel
better, and so will you.
Don't meddle in affairs of the house under
her charge. You have no more right to be
poking your nose into the kitchen, t.ian she
has to walk into your place of business and
give directions to your employes. .
Don't leave yoiw wife at home to nurse
the children, on the score of economy, while
you boit down town at nights to see the
show or spend a dollar on billiards.
Don't find 'fault with her extravagance in
ribbons, etc., until you have shut down on
cigars, tobacco, etc. :, ;.
Don't bolt your supper and hurry off to
spend your evenings lourging around .away
from your wife. Before marriage yon could
not spend your evenings enough with her.
Don't prowl in the loafing resorts till mid
night, wasting your time in culpable idle
ness, leaving your wife lonely at. home to
brood over your neglect and her disappoint
ment. t -,
Don't think that board and clothes are
sufficient for all a wife does for you.
Don't caress your wife in public and snarl
and growl at her in private. ;,. V
Don't wonder that your wife i3 not as
cheerful as she used to be, when she labors
from early morn till late at night,, to pander
to the comfort and caprice of a selfish man,
who has not soul enough to appreciate her.

Afraid or Being Kissed. A rnan was
once walking along one, road and a woman
along another. The roads finally united,
and man and woman, reaching the junction
at the same time, walked on from there to
gether. The man was carrying' a large iron
kettle on his back, in one hand he held by
the legs a live chicken, in the other, a cane,
and he was leading a goat. Just as they
were coming to a deep, dark ravine, the wo
man said to the man, "I'm afraid to go
through that ravine with you ; it is a lonely
place, and you might overpower me and kiss
me by force. "
"If you were afraid of that," said the
man, " you shouldn't have come with me at
all ; how can I possibly overpower you and
kiss you by force when I have this great
iron kettle on my back, a cane in one hand
and a live chicken in the other, and leading
this goat ? I might as well be tied hand
and foot ! "
" Yes." replied the woman ; " but if you
should stick your cane into the ground and
tie the goat to it, and turn the kettle bot
tom side up and put the chicken into it,
then you might wickedly kiss me, in spite of
my resistance." ..

And when they came to the ravine he
stuck his cane in the ground and tied the
goat to it, gave the chicken to the woman,
saying : " Hold it while I cut some grass for
the goat," and then lowering the kettle
from his shoulders, imprisoned the chicken
under it, and wickedly kissed the woman,
as she was afraid he would.

Lecture to ISoys on Smoking:.
In its deleterious effects upon the human
system, tobacco ranks next to the great evil
of intoxicating beverages. No close observ
er can fail to mark its baneful influence upon
"our boys. It is time that parents and
school teachers were a unit in discountenanc
ing and prohibiting it3 use among the boys.
The Salem Statesman has the following sug
gestive article on the use of this "filthy
weed," which is worthy of careful perusal :
Boys, if you were German boys ai.d
should be caught smoking, you would be
locked up.. In Germany the governirient
has become anxious about the injurious e -fects
of tobacco on the physique of soldiers
in coming days, and in order to rectify in
some measure the evil, has ordered the police
to arrest all under sixteen found smoking 011
the streets, and to have them punished by
tine and imprisonment. This will have a
beneficial influence in more ways than one.
According to reports resulting from govern
ment investigations among the boys attend
ing the Polytechnic schools of Paris, a
clearly defined line has been discovered be
tween the smokers and the non-smokers, the
latter being decidedly superior to the former
in general scholarship and in mental vigor.
The poisnous nicotine, so far counteracted
in the adult smoker by the resisting forces
of his matured physical , constiiution, lays
hold of the forming nerve tissues of the
young, and does its injurious work without
hinderance. Smoking cannot be put down
by an act of congress, but. it would be a
great improvement if the German custom of
apprehending all under sixteen found smok
ing in the streets could be put in force.

It ha been slated that the trne
name of James Johnson, now in the
county jail under sentence of death,
is Frank Taylor, and that he came
from Belfast, Maine, where his family
now lives. He has refused from the
first to give any information regard
ing his family in the hope that his
desperate career and disgraceful death
might never be known to them. The
following item, in which there are
some errors of statement, appeared
in the Belfast Journal of the 6th inst S
Wholsiic? A letter recently received
from a person in Oregon, by a resident of
this city, has the following item :
" There is a culprit in Portland (Oregon)
jail, under sentence of death. He was arr
rested under an assumed name, but since he
was convicted says his true name is Frank
Taylor. Do you know anything of his his
tory ? He hails from Belfast. Says he be
longs there. He and an accomplice go to'
their account together at an early day."
We are unable to say to whom this refers.
A family of that name, having a large num
ber of boys, lived in this city many years
ago ; but the members are all respectable,
and quite unlikely to be connected with
crime. Can any of our readers shed any
light on the subject ?
The next issue of" the same paper,
published a week later, has the fol
It is believed that the man Taylor who is
to be hung at Portland, Oregon, and who
hails from Belfast, has been identified. If
this opinion is correct, twenty-five or more
years ago the family lived on Bridge street.
The father of Taylor was mme I George, a
caulker by trade, and a good citizen. A sis
ter of -Mrs. Taylor lives in one of the towns
near this city.
A brother of Johnson seeing the
paragraphs above, started immedi
ately for this city and arrived about
ten "days ago. Not desiring to be
known, he assumed a false name ;
but introduced himself upon his ar
rival to a prominent gentleman and
stated that the object of this visit
was to attempt to save his brother's
life. He was assured that there was
no hope, but lias not entirely relin
quished his plans, and lastveek vis
ited Salem to personally interview
