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 young friend, 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. M. W. Jordan. A man most ask his wife if hemay be rich. "J?IorIey'i " Inciters from Kew Yorlc. 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 food ? 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 ? MORLEY. f From the Orep-onian, "Rand Contest" at the State Fair. Eugene City, March 10, 1878. E. M Waite, Esq., Secretary O.S.A. Society: Can you arrange it that there may be a band "contest" between the bands of Oregon and adjoining territories at the next State Fair ?

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. February, 1879'. D. Newsome. FOR SII'SKAXUS. 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. They satupon the uridge watching the silent tide as it flowed past, making soft rip ples against the pier, like distant music, the restless ferry-boats sped back and forth like giant spectres in the moonlight the distant hum of the great city became fainter and fainter, still the maiden spake not. Placing his arm softly around her waist in accent of the deepest love and interest be whispered : " What troubles thy thought, my darling ? art thou chewing the cud of sweet or bitter fancies?" " Neither," she replied ; "it's my apron string. " Caurt Journal. " It was simply an informal affair," wrote the editor, of a little strawberry party at a neighbor's house.

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." .. " Success to thy ingenuity, 0 woman ! 1 . , - . ., ., l..'.viu..!f - " T saiu tne rejoicing .urn .... , should never have thought of such an expe dient." , . , 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.

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.

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.

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 lowing : 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.

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 Governor Thayer. Oreyonian.
