THE OWL ANP SPIDER.
In an old belfry tower,
A dry, cosy bower,
Dozed an owl by the hour.
Bat the bell's sly old chipper
Was a mischiie vous rapper.
And soon waked the napper.
"Mr. Owl, don't yon mind him;
With cobwebs I'll bind him,
And round and round wind him"
Thus up spoke a spider,
Stripped like an outrider; -f
The owl sharply eyed her.
And said: "If he cheat yon,
I'll not scold nor beat yon,
I'll just merely eat yon."
The owl saw her spin
Her web, frail and thin,
Round the bell, out and in.
But, next Sunday morning,
Without a word of warning,
The bell went sv-storming.
With a cling and a clang.
With a boom and a bang.
The old clapper rang!
The owl didn't chide her,
Rebuke nor deride her.
But he ate up that spider.
Here is a moral, dear children, for you:
Never promise a thing you're not able to do.

A NEW LQDQER.
He was jaded, and looked like he
had been knocking sap out ot cross
lies from Louisville to Biioxi. His
eyes gave evidence of many nights
of restlessness; you could gather a
bucketful of wrinkles off of bis weary
brow; and altogether he seemed like
he had been sitting up at- night with
his sick mother-in-law for three weeks.
He walked up to the desk in the
Bossel House, and ic a Pinafore voice
asked for the clerk.
''You have the honor to be in his
oily presence, sir," said the clerk'
"Eh?" inquired the queer man,
somewhat perplexed at the Latin ot
"I am the juy," continued the man
at tbe desk, in a joking way presuru
ing that the queer man was au agent
for tbe New Testament, or was try
ing to borrow a dollar and a halt,
"Don't understand the dialect,
partner; never spoke tliat way," said
the queer man.
"I am the clerk," answered the
"Oh, hoi!'' exclaimed the queer
fellow; and be continued, "Well, I
want a nice, cool and quiet room."
"Well, sir," said the clerk, as he
shaped up for business, "1 have a few
choice rooms left; something that
will just suit you."
"Any dogs about your house?"
asked the qu er fellow.
"AU killed," answered the clerk.
"Ah, ha; got any babies; crying
babies?" inquired Mr. Queerfellow.
"All drowned, sir." replied the
"Drowned!" cried the queer fellow.
"Yes, sir," continued tbe clerk: "we
drown them in this house tbe moment
they begin to annoy our people."
And with an air of satisfaction the
queer fellow assured tbe clerk that
drowning squalling babies was a good
idea, and he would atop with him
for -the season.
"You see," commenced be, "I have
been boarding with Mrs. . Her
old man has only one eye, and is
always repairing something about tbe
place; and having orly one eye, and
that ore only good to see an object
as large as a circus bill, he goes
around with a Christmas hammer
driving nails; and of course hits all
around the, nail and then swears loud
enough to be beard in Mobile, He is
also very tond of "Kioodles," and
has about sixteen of them prowling
about the house. So, between the
howling ot ihe dogs, the swearing of
the old gentleman,, and the croaking

New York, Aug. 11. A telegram from
president's bedside states that Dr. Bliss de
clares that the president is better to-day
than he has been since the shooting.
The Times says: The condition of the
president continues to excite uneasiness in
spite of the declarations of attending phy
sicians that the symptoms of his case are
entirely satisfactory. There is much reason
for the disquiet over the slow recovery of
the president, that the copious discharge
-from the wound, however salutary from the
surgeons point of iew is nevertheless a con
stant drain on the strength of the patient
and that the waste of pus must be steadily
repaired to afford any prospect of recovery,
but no evidence whatever that either the
discharge from the wound or incissions now
which have been found necessary to facili
tate that discharge, have made any fatal in
roads on the president's strength.
The Herald still finds fault with the man
agement of the president's case. The very
weak and debilitated condition of the presi
dent is an unfavorable sign. The attending
physicians predicted that such symptoms
might be expected two or three days after
the operation. Why not state that the
last seven days have been as bad as the first
or second weeks, and that three weeks in
tervened before the unfavorable conditions
were renewed and the president's improve
ment was said to be as marked and as satis
factory as it had been at any time since he
The Herald's Washington special says:
Dr. Agnew says the president is not out of
danger but says: "I believe he will recover."
Hamilton says: "I shall continue to have
faith in his recovery until all the evidence
is against hope."
Bliss says: "I have never doubted for a
moment that he would get well. That con
fidence increases every day."
Doctors Reyburn, Barnes and Woodward
concur with Bliss.
The secretary of the navy said to-day: "I
believe, and so do all the members of the
cabinet, with implicit trust, that the presi
dent will recover, not tomorrow or next
week, bnt in nature's own time."
Lynchburg, Aug. 11. The coalitionists
adjourned at 2 a. m sine die, having endors
ed the regular readjuaters platform. The
straight out convention assembled at nine
o'clock to-day. The platform was read and
after much discussion of the debt plank, was
adopted, 56 to 32.
The platform reaffirms adherence to re
publican principles, than which none is
more sacred than the meeting of contracts.
The republican party of Virginia should
therefore especially protect the state credit,
which has been besmirched with repudiation
by the gross mismanagement of the democ
racy. The republican party pledge them
selves to redeem the state from the cloud
hanging over her on account of monies loan
ed and misapplied, and most solemnly pledge
payment of the whole state debt save one
third which justly falls on West Virginia.
There is a strong protective plank and a
strong elective trancnise plank, demanding
manhood as the only qualification,- and op
posing the prepayment of capitation tax as
requisite to voting, but demand a cavitation
tax for the support of schools without its de
franchising effects.. It opposes the whip
Chicago. Aug. 11. The Times' Niagara
Falls special says: Geo. S. Coe will read a
paper before the banker's convention to
morrow declaring that state bank notes
based on commercial assets will be the mon
ey of the future. The reduction in volume
of the public debt and the increased price of
bonds have already destroyed the profits to
be derived from the issue of the note cur
rency, and must soon put an end to the
whole national bank system.

San Francisco, Aug. 11. Charles Crocker
president of the Southern Pacific railroad,
was interviewed by a Bulletin reporter to
day. He said the company waa laying a
mile of track every day beyond El Paso;
Texas. They are grading from the other
end of the road, and have the road graded
125 miles, and 60 miles of track laid west
from San Antonia, and will have the entire
line completed by July 1882. When this
work is finished it will give the Southern
Pacific a line through to within a few miles
of Galveston, Texas, and 100 miles of New
Orleans, where connection with the Morgan
road will probably be made. Crocker
thought the plan of consolidation between
the Union Pacific, Atchison and Topeka and
Texas Pacific, recently telegraphed, was
possible, bnt said it was improbable. : ,.

She obeyed and tbe lady brought a quilt and

Lexington, Ky., Aug. 12. Gov. Black
burn believes that the president's wound
will prove mortal without a doubt He
discusses the wound from a professional
standpoint, and says nothing but injury to
the great nerve of the spinal column could
produce the pains he had in his feet.
Buffalo, Aug. 12. Mrs. Fillmore died to
day. New York, Aug. 12. The Tribune hav
ing interviewed John Roach, the latter said
he estimated that the total amount paid
annually to foreign ship owners for carrying
American products abroad is 9150,000,000.
The amount paid for passenger fares added
to that, spent by Americans travelling in
Europe, he thinks more than equal the sur
plus in trade in our favor.
Hartford, Aug. 12. Ex-Congressman
Origen Seymour, formerly chief judge of the
supreme court of this state-, died at Litch
field this morning.
Detroit, Aug. 12. Albert Pulsipher,
cashier of a private bank, died to-day of
what is pronounced cholera,
Omaha, Aug. 12. The supreme court at
Lincoln to-day decided that the high license
liquor law is constitutional in every partic
ular. It compels saloon keepers to pay
$1000 license and give bonds in the sum of
95000 in lities of over 10,000 people, and in
cities under 10,000 the license is 9500.'
San Francisco, Aug. 12. In consequence
of the quarrel between the Ypsemite and
Manhattan wings of the city democrats, the
state central committee on Wednesday night
last ordered both conventions- to adjourn.
They partially oomplied. To-day the state
central and county committee met and pass
ed a resolution to meet again to-morrow for
the purpose of appointing a new nominating
convention from which all members of state
and county committees and of both of the
present conventions are to be excluded.
This resolution was sent in to the Yosemite
and Manhattan conventions, which met this
evening, 'and by both it was promptly tabled.
The Yosemites then sent a compromise
proposition to the Manhattans, offering to
give them half the members of the new con
vention, but recognizing the bargain of the
Yosemites with the Workingmens' wings to
give the latter the sheriff, and auditor, tax
collector, two supervisors and two school
directors. The proposition was accepted by
a large majority. In view of this compro
mise it is expected that more of the state
and county commissioners will come to grief.

Geneva, Aug. 11. Switzerland is begin
ning to suffer seriously from a drougth which

Grass is burned and there is no chance of
making the usual second hay crop. There
is a great scarcity of water in most parts of

St Johns, Aug. 12. A bottle picked up

London, Aug. 12. In the commons a di
vision was taken en the question in the house
to disagree with the amendment to clause 19
of the land bill introduced in the house of
lords striking out the words granting power
to the land court to render void any lease
obtained by a landlord by the threat of
eviction or undue influences, and the motion
to disagree was carried, 47 to 113. The
amendment of the house of lords to strike
out the house proviso that the land court
may stay proceedings for debt when the
tenant has applied for the fixing of judicial
rent was rejected, 227 to 113.
The land bill was sent to- the house of
lords, where it was received and ordered for

editor of the United Ireland newspaper, in
the interest of the land league, Bays: 1 am
much pleased that you intend to make the
development of the industrial recourses of the
country and the encouragement of native
manufactures a leading feature of your pa
per. I think the time fast anroaching when
Jrou might do much to assist in the re-estab-ishment
of Irish manufactures by encourag
ing our people to use home made in pref
erence to English made goods. I am dis
posed to believe in regard to articles not at
present manufactured to the extent at home
we might use the products of Americau fac
tories. This would tend to act as direct
protection to Irish manufactures as it would
encourage the origination of works for tbe
purpose of manufacturing such articles at

The erection of the mills by tbe
newly organized Salem Mills Compa
ny, indicates thet this city will con
tinue to be the grain center of Ore
gon, says the Weekly Talk. For
several years our business men have
chartered more sea going vessels than
Portland and alt other towns h the
state together, and now doubling
four times our milling capacity, can
not but result in a corresponding in
crease of our control of -Oregon com
merce. Both mill companies during
the coming year will have their own
steamboats on the river and meet
their chartered vessels at Astoria
thereby saving heavy expenses of
pilotage and towage, besides tbe for
mer charges of warehousemen in
Portland. This saving will of cours
be paid to the farmer in the way of
an increase on tbe price of grain. It
is also understood in addition to riv
er facilities for shipping between Ss
lem and tbe sea-board, there will, at
no distant day, be a railroad built to
Astoria, independent ot Portland, and
a distinct line between Salem and tbe
Yaquina Bay. Thus will the capitol
city gradually take wind out of tbe
sails of its principal rival.
G. W. Settfemicr. formerly of Al
bany, writes from Cheney, VV. T., to
the "State Rights Democrat," among
other things tbe following: Dayton
is the first town that I have seen
that in any way attracted my atten
tion as having any great future pros
pects. It is now the terminus of the
Dayton branch of the O. R. fc N.
Co's 1?. R. No place that I have ever
seen can surpass the country around
Dayton except it might be . this place
of Cheney. Finer grain fields I never
saw; some almost ripe, others green,
yet all looking well and indicating ft
very good yield. Gardens look ex
ceedingly well, while berries and
fruits, peaches, etc., seem especially
adapted to this climate.
Perhaps the next noted new town
of this territory is Cheney. It is
named after one of the stock holders
of the N. P. R. R. and is on the line
of that road, about 130 miles from
Ainsworth. The growth of this place
has been very rapid. Scarcely 9
months ago, there was nothing in this
pine forest but a solitary bat, while
now we have a town with streets over
a quarter of a mile long t has tbe
following business houses; Three large
dry good stores, 5 hotels and restau
rants, 2 hardware stores, 1 harness
shop, 2 drug stores, 2 blacksmith
shops, 1 carriage shop, 2 livery sta
bles, 1 bakery, 1 grocery store. 1
fruit stand, 2 butchers!) ops, i barber
shop, 1 grist mill (being constructed)
and one school house. A fine church
is being constructed hy tbe Congre-
gationa lists while two more will soon
be built by other denominations.
The railroad company is finishing a
very fine depot building that will
nrobably cost $4,000. We also bave
8 saloons. There is no less than a
dozen new buildings in course of con
struction now. Cheney claims to be-
a center for a large farming country,.
including the Spangle Four Lakes,.
Deep creek and Rock creek and
White Bluft' country. Crops look
very well, hat are a little late. I
have never anywbare seen more
thrifty looking gardens and grain so
far as I have seen, it surpasses any
portion of W. T. T. M. Callaway
has 8o acres of very fine land just at
tbe edge ot town.
Cheney seems destined to be quite a
town at no dixtant day. For my
part I think enough of it, without any
desire to see further. The country
offices are now located in Cheny in
stead of Spokane Falls, which will
have a tendency to make this a more
central point, though the falls will
always be a town of considerable
Journeymen tailors at work; on cus
tom trowsers are like jilted W4mer--sewing
breeches of promise.
