A MODERN DRAHA.
'The radiant rays of an afternoon
sun were shedding a sheen of bright
light o'er all around, when afar off
might have been seen an elegantly
attired, exquisitely dressed lady,
leisurely walking henceward. A sweet
kindly smile illumined her fine face.
A loving light, soft and assuring,
beamed from her beautiful eyes. At
3 g'ance it was to be seen that she
was a womanly woman, possessed of
that ever triumphant trio of traits,
lovely, loving and lovable.
A few squares from her, just hid
from sight around the corner, was a
wd-haired, dirty-faced, quick-eyed,
ragged, unambitious, bad little boy.
He chewed tobacco more naturally,
effectively and industriously than
ever a cow chewed her cud. He was
on the watch. As he peeped around
the corner and saw the lady ap
proaebing, he began tj distort his
features, spit upon his finger and
streak the dirt upon his f?ca so as to
give him the appearance of being in
The lady sees him. He doesn't
see her, of course not. He painfully,
arduously continues onward. As he
nears her, his distress unconsciously
increases. Yet it is suppressed. The
kind, good lady stops him. Sympa
thy and charity are written all over
her face. He knows it, though his
eyes are sobbingly shut. The lady
inquires the cause of his dire distress.
Slowly, Kobbingly, almost un will
ingly, he tells her. His poor sick
mother, very sick, sent him for tea
for herself. A big boy caught him
and took the money away. His heart
is broken. He cannot face his sick,
very sick motht r. He wants to die,
indeed he does. By more inquiry
the lady learns that the lad's life is
one of woe as is that of hisv poor
mother. She takes the number of
the miserable tenement where he
lives, hands him a dollar and hastens
lo his mother.
The boy hastens, too. He hastens
around the first corner he comes lo.
He hastens to a well known alley,
and whistles. Another and a bigger
boy soon appears, running. The
little sufferer calls out: "Hi, Bill, I
worked her for a dollar. Let's make
for the circus." The big boy seems
to take the matter cooly, as a matter
of course. He evidently has been
The kind good lady never found
the little sufferer's very sick mother.
In her heart, she has often wished
she could find the little sufferer him
self. She thinks she could make it
interesting for him. Ex.

Mrs. S. C. White writes the Stan
dard from San Francisco that she
was one of the five women three
of whom were married and two
single who came to Oregon from
Boston for the Methodist Mission in
1836. One of these single ladies
married the Rev. Jason Lee, and
died in little over a year, and the
rest have all past away except the
old lady in question. Mrs. White is
in good health, and thinks she will
live for twenty years more.
The Oldest Draft-Horse Record Lxtant.
One of the most interesting and
valuable additions to American liter
ature that it has been our pleasure to
examine is the Percheron-Norman
Stud Book, containing a history of
of the French 'draft races, also a rec
ord of all the Percheron horses ever
ported from France to the Linked
States, and all pnre-breds raised in
this country. And it is an interesting
fact in connection with this enterprise
to note that the first edition of Mr.
Sander's work is older than any other
Stud Book of any breed of draft
horses either in Europe or America.
This work, which may be obtained
by addressing the publisher, J. II.
Sanders, Chicago, III., and enclosing
the price, 13.00, will add greatly to
the general knowledge of this already
famous race of horses, and will prove
invaluable to those intending to buy,
or those who are breeding these hor
ses. This record will prevent the ex
tensive imposition which has been
practiced in many quarters, of selling
or offering for service as imported or
pure-bred Percherons, horses of in
ferior breeding, or those that are only
grades, hundreds ot which are thus
misrepresented throughout the coun
try. The Percheron horse in the few
yea.-s that have elapsed since the
first importation to this country has
established a reputation never equaled
by any other breed. Their fine forms,
great activity, and remarkable docil
ity, combined with an abundance of
courage and stamina, have made
them general favorites. But their
greatest value has been found in cross
ing them upon onr native marcs.
The remarkable uniformity, beauty
and quality of the progeny so marked
in every case, has made them favor
ites with breeders as well as buyers
whoever they are known. The de
mand for the pure-breds is so great
that their importation has assumed
immense proportions. Prairie Farm
Very serious charges are brought
by the Evening Star, of Boston,
against the financial writer of the
Daily Advertiser of that town. It is
alleged that he has. taken money,
stocks and stook privileges in return
for notices and puffs embodied in his
department of the paper.
Whether these charges be true or
false we have no means of knowing.
If they are false, the accused person
has the best ground for an action for
libel; if they are true, the accused
person is a scoundrel, betraying his
employer and deceiving the Dublic.
There is only one rule in such mat
ters. Nothing that is paid for should,
appear in a newspaper except with
marks clearly showing that it is an
advertisement. No journals whose
opinions are worth regard will allow
anything to be printed in its leading
columns or in its news columns on
any other terms. The advertis
ing space is for sale, and can always
be bought by those who wish to buy
it, at a fixed price regulated before
hand. The editorial space and the
news space are not for sale, and are
not to be bought at any prico
whatever. N. Y. Sun.
At an editorial convention recently
held at Wabash Ind., Mr. Richard
Smith of the Cincinnati Gazette deliv
ered an address, in which he related
the following as an incident in point.
"When the Gazette company chang
ed from credit to the cash-in-advance
system, there were $80,000 due on the
books from weekly subscribers alone,
that had been accumulating for a third
of a century. Of that amount not
80,000 cents were collected. We
employed a man and furnished him
with a good horse, and sent him off
on a collecting tour. In six months
the horse died, the saddle and bridle
were pawned for keep, and the man
returned a considerable balance against
the company. We sold the books for
old paper and called those credits
PROSPECTS' E.V ALASKA.
Joseph T. Kretzinger of Chicaqo
left his home in that citv about five
months ago, and, after organizing a
prospecting party, made a tour
through parts of Alaska and other
far distant points in the great North
west in search of gold. A Chicago
paper says that Kretzinger was ac
companied by A. P. Horlon, O. R.
Young and R. Hanehka of Dead
wood; E. J. Bronson of San Francis
co, and Charles Hay ward, Rotchford,
Dakota. The parly went directly
to Victoria, Vancouver Is'and, and
from thereto Fort Wrangel, Alaska;
thence to the Stickeen River and up
the Stickeen to Telegraph Creek.
From this point they crossed the
trail ir?ade ' a portage of seventy
four miles to the Dease Lake, their
guns, supplies and tents being carried
by mules. At the Deas Lake they
procured a boat an open one, about
forty feet long and in this boat
went down the Dease River about
two hundred and ten miles, or where
the Dease ernpties into the Deloir or
Laird River; and they floated down
the Laird about three hundred miles,
and to within about three hundred
miles of the Mackenzie River, and
eight hundred miles of the Arctic
Ocean. About two hundred miles
south of the Dease Lake was found a
region quite rich with gold dust,
samples of which Kretzinger brought
back with him. In tile spring the
same parties will return to the point
from which the gold dnst was
brought, and "work it" until cold
weather sets in again. San Fran
Three years ago M. Dunkin located
at Leadville the mine which still
bears his name. He was poor, but
he worked faithfully and hard in
hopes that he would strike mineral,
but his money gave out and he sold
his interest lor $2,3 00. The purchas
ers, after spending quite a large sum
in sinking another shaft on the prop
erty, which failed to disclosejnineral,
returned to that in which Dunkin
had buried his hopes, and in sinking
seven feet farther struck pay ore.
The mine was sold a year later for
An old-timer who was anions the
early arrivals at Rosita located the
Pioneer, and sank a shaft 123 feet
deep, He subsequently located the
Chieftain, adjoining the Leavenworth
and sold it for &5 in twenty years
time. The sum is not yet due.
Before selling he offered to give it
to Captain Lambert of the Pueblo
Chieftain, from which paper the mine
derived its name, but the Captain
declined the gift. The same pros,
pector discovered the Humboldt,
Pocohonlas, Leviathan and Invinci
ble mines, all of which he gave to a
man to whom he was indebted iri a
paltry sum. The first three named
have since yielded $700,000, and
bid fair to produce twice that sum
in the future, while the old timer is
rich prospectively in the owner

Miguel Mountains. Mining Gazette.
The Ghicago Inter-Ocean says that
one of the features of President Ar
thur's policy is to encourage young
men to take an active part iri politics
and he is making many appointments
with that end in view. He is select
ing old men for his cabinet advisers,
men of long experience and ripe wis
dom, bnt almost invariably does he
choose young men for minor offices.
When a Congressman goes to
him to consult about the appoint
ment of a Postmaster, or similar
official in the smaller towns, the
President says : "I want you to sug
gest the name of a young, active,
progressive Republican. I want to
encourage the young men. Aud in
this fie shows wisdom. In too many
cases, under past administrations, old
and broken-down politicians have
been preferred for positions in which
yonng and vigorous men were need
ed. The young men of the country
will soon be its. controlling spirits,
and it is well to have some of them

THE TEACHER A!YD THE ARTIST.
As Michael Angelo was passing
through an obscure street in Florence,
he discovered among the rubbish a
block of marble1 and stopped to ex
tricate it. His companions in aston
ishment laughed, asking t what
use lib could put so rough a stone;
He replied, "There is an angel in this
stone and I must get it on'f." Under
his hand it became a noble work of
In obscure places covered with the'
rubbish of bad habit and neglect pre
senting a rough, lintove'y exterior,'
the pure white marble of human char
acter lies concealed.
The teacher with the true artist's
comprehension di covers what to'
others is hidden, sees in the mind of
every jhild the possibilities for it
grandly developed manhood or
womanhood. With the image' of
what may be before him, he chisels'
h i th patience, letouching here and
there, again and again, till symmetry
is the result, and he has accomplished
more than di.l Angelo in the marble;
as his material is imperishable and ho
has produced the reality, of which the
image is the semblance. He has"
given to it an mpetus which shall
lead it forever onward, impressed it
with a charity that never varies and!
benevo'enee embracing all mankind;
kindled the spark of vivacity w;ithin
till the light of angelic purity plays"
about the brow, and right-actions'

Editor Gazettic. I wish to cor
rect a statement made in your issue
of the 13th, in regard to G. W:
Lagin the . young man who attempted
suicide at this place. I am reliably
informed that ho has never been
subject to fits of insanity, this being
the first attack. The facts' in the
case are these he came down hero
from camp to spend Christmas and
was sick when he came with some
thing like the bilious fever, and was
confined to the house for several
davs. When he got well enough to"
go about town he went to drinking
and the fit of insanity was undoubted
caused by the use of liquor when
his system was enfeebled by disease.
He has made many friends here who
sympathize with him and hope for
his speedy recovery.
