A MOTHER'S VOICE.
There's music in a mother's voiee,
More sweet than breezes sighing;
There's kindles in a mother's glance,
Too pure for ever dying.
There'B love within a mother's breast,
So deep 'tis overflowing.
And care for those she calls her own.
That's ever, ever growing.
There's anguish in a mother's tear,
When farewell fondly taking.
That so the heart of pity moves.
It scarcely keeps from breaking.
And when a mother kneels to Heaven,
And for hercbild is praying,
O, who shall half the fervour tell
That burns in all she's saying!
A mother! how her tender arts
Can sooth the breast of sadness,
And through the gloom of life unce more
Bid shine the sun of Waduess.
A mother! when, like evening's star.
Her course hath ceased before us,
From brighter worlds regards us stilL
And watches fondly o'er us.
"There is nothing in ploughing
the fields to make men cross, cruel
and crabbed. ''So sayssome one whose
occupation does not lead him to fol
low a plow through new ground
where rugged stumps abound and re
bounding roots try their powers on
sensitive shin bones, where yellow
jackets and bumble-bees claim pre
emption rights and start the plough
man in one direction and horses and
plow in another, and where, when
everything else is lovely, copper
heads spit their venom and rattle
snakes shake defiant candal appen
dages at the lonely ploughman. Let
the mild mannered author of the
the above extract follow the ploy
from breaking up "till laying by
time" and occasionally get the fret
ted edge of a corn blade drawn
across his cheek, nose or eye ball, in
addition to perils from sudden lurch
es ot the plow in contact with
stumps; perils from returning roots;
perils from snakes, yellow jackets,
etc., and then when his crops are
maturing and full of promise discov
er his neighbor's stock holding high
carnival in his cornfield. (A farmer
heard a preacher discourse on the
mild manners a farmer should culti
vate toward depredating stock in his
fields. That night he was aroused
from his slumbers to find his own
predatory cow running riot in a favo
rite corn patch. Alter chasing the
boviue round and round in the dark
and ov r the maturing corn, medita
ting the while lo some extent, on the
morning's discourse, he at last ex
claimed. "Blame your old hide. 1
wish that preacher had you.")
Let the mild mannered writer
quoted above, after chasing catUe
rom his fields or swine from his gar
den, then go to his melon patch to
refresh his wearied self with a choice
melon sheltered from the suu and hid
from view by crass and weeds clever,
ly spread over it, and discover that
somebody has been there since he's
been gone, and taken that and sun
dry other choice melons, and that
somebody a thief, then let him re
turn to his house, sie7e his pen and
write a cursory view of the shady
side of a ploughman's life. If it does
not turn out to be a curseri view,
both his spouse and the printer may
be thankful. Still there is no profit
in wrath and profane adjectives on
the part of the farmer, and it is well
to subdue his temper and control his
tongue on all occasions.
Who Should Seep Bees?
It is the man or woman that is not
afraid of them, enjoys their company,
and never becomes 60 engrossed in
other business but that they can at
tend to them punctually, just when
they need attention, and who have
seuse enough to help them in their
labors rather than retard them.
They shou'd be kept at rural or
country homss, away from all noise
and commotion; and even at our
county homes they should be kept as
far away from all cider presses and
fruit driers as possible, for they both
mean death to bees.. Is the imported
superior to our native black bee? In
many respects they are, as from
their construction they can gather
honey from a number of blossoms
that the black bee cannot reach, and
their size enables them to gather
more honey in the same time. Then
they are not near so excitable.
Why, even the queen of .the much
dreaded hybrid, on opening their
hive, will go. right on with deposit
ing her eggs while the black queen
seems all excitement. Can our coun
try be overstocked with bees? It is
with them just as it is with other
stock, or even with the human family.
Whenever we put so many sheen or
cattle on a field that they eat the
grass all up, and keep them there,
they will starve; "and when the bese
become so numerous that there is
one for every clover blossom, they
may live for a - while, bat after the
honey season is over they will have
to succumb. J3c
The love of money has been and
is to be the root of all evil. If the
same had been said of intoxicating
drinks it would have been nearer the
truth. It has been left to the present
generation to make liquor a greater
curse and evil than ever before. Not
only is this the case in America but
also in Europe. The energy, enter
prise and go-a-head character of the
nineteenth century, un'orlunately,
not only illustrates itself in the de
velopement and improvement of
manufactures and the cultivation of
the arts and sciences but also in the
increased consumption of liquors.
A good many theories Lave been
propounded on the subject of abating
or doing away with this great curse,
but one only would be really satis
factory and effectual viz: the total
suspension by law of the retail liquor
traffic except for medicinal purposes.
Until this is obtained but little good
will be accomplished. Tea-total
societies do more good in their way
but three-fifths of their members be
long to the other sex and are chiefly
old women and the remaining two
fifths are children and a few re
There are a great many men who
have very good intentions but un
fortunately have not sufficient force
of chnractor necessary to sustain
them. Such men might never be
able to break away entirely from
drink although thoroughly persuaded
themselves that abstinence was best
for them. In such cases joining a
temperance society or becoming tea
totaller is generally thought, of
course there are exceptions, of no
avail for they soon break away and
their last state is too often worse
than their first. The only way to
stop these men from drinking is total
suspension. Nothing else will help
them. There are others who drink
from force of habit. Do they really
enjoy drinking ? In most cases not
in the least, but there are a few who
reallv do. There are those too who
drink for the sake of company and
of pleasing their friends as they call
them, but who are really it they
could only see it, their worst enemies.
Most of the afore-mentioned would
have uo objection to total suspension
but would welcome the passing of
such a law. As for saloon-keepers
and those who sell liquors, confirmed
drunkards and those who having
drank moderately for years cannot
or imagine they cannot do without
it, these of course naturally kick
against total suspension. But law
should be made to benefit the ma
jority and not to suit a minority. It
is almost certain if it were to be put
to the voters of Oregon a large ma
jority would decide in favor , of total
suspension of the retail liquor traffic
except for medicinal purposes, and
it must be taken into consideration
that ninety-nine hundredths of the
women of Oregon would also bo in
favor of it. And why should not
women have a voice in a matter
which 60 closely effects them as the
liquor question ? In many cases they
see their husbands, brothers, lovers
and friends fast going down to their
ruin but yet hiive no power given
them by law to check the tide.
When the women of this great na
tion are allowed to vote and their
angelic qualities are brought to bear
on social as well us political questions
then the good influence will be felt
by the whole community and the na
tion at large will be benefited. May
the people of Oregon soon decide
this rnomentious question and decide
it aright. If the farmers of Oregon
were to spend the money they now
spend on liquor on the improvement
of their farms and building houses
what beautiful farms and comfort
able good looking farm houses there
would be in this beautiful fand feitile
country. Yours truly,
Corvallis, Sept.13, 1882.
Geo. M. Casey of Clinton, Missouri,
one of the firm of Casey, Adair &
Salmon, near Colorado City, was in
our city last Wednesday, and paid
us quite a visit. His firm has ship
ped from their ranch near Colorado
City, up to the 1st of August, 1,400
beeves, which netted $25 per head.
Last spring they offered these cattle
at $25 per head, but could not find a
purchaser at that time, by which they
saved the snug little sum of $14,000.
This firm will brand on the above
ranch duringjhe present season 7,000
calves, which to say the least, is an
annual income of $70,000. We sug
gested to-our friend Casey that yel
low fever was at Matamoras, but he
assured us that he had no fears of it
whatever; said he had quit fleeing
from diseases since his hasty flight
last spring from smallpox near his
ranch. He looks well and is happy.
Long may he flourish. He and his
associates are gentlemen of the first
water, and we are glad o number
them among our friends. Texas

A man came into the office on
Thursday with a black eve, a strip
of court plaster across his cheek, one
arm in a sling, and as. he leaned on a
crutch and wiped the perspiration
away from around his forehead with
a red cotton handkerchief, he asked
if the editor was in. Being answer
ed in the affirmative, ho said:
" Well, I want to stop my paper,',
and he sat down on the edge of a
chair as though it might hurt it.
"Scratch my name right off. You
are responsible for my condition."
"Can it be possible ?" we inquired.
"Yes," said he; "I'm a farmer
and keep cows. I recently read an
article in your paper about a dairy
man's convention, where one of the
mottoes over the door was, 'Treat
your cow as you would a lady ;' and
the article said it was contended by
our best dairymen that a cow treated
in a polite, gentlemanly manner, as
though she were a companion, would
give twice as much nulk.
" The plan seemed feasible to me,
I had been a hard man with my stock,
and thought maybe that was one
reason my cows always dried up
when butter was 40 cents a pound,
and gave plenty of milk when butter
was only 15 cents a pound. I decided
to adopt your plan, and treat a cow
as I would a lady.
I had a cow that had never been
very touch mashed on me, and I de
cided to commence on her, and the
next morning after I read your devil
ish paper I put ou my Sunday suit
and a white plug hat I bought the
year Greeley ran for President, and I
went to the barn lo milk. I noticed
the old cow looked bashful and fright
ened, but taking off my hat and
bowing politely I said, " Madam,
excuse the seeming impropriety of
the request, but will you do me the
favor to hoist V" At the same time
I tapped her gently on the flank with
my plug hat. Putting the tin pail
under her I sat down ou the milking
" Did she hoist ?" said we, rather
anxious to know how the advice of
President Smith, of Sheboygan, the
great dairyyman worked.
" Did she hoist ? Well, look at
me, and see if you think she hoisted.
The cow raised and kicked me with
all the four feet, switched me with
her tail and hooked me with both
horns at once, and when I got out of
the bedding in the stall, and dug my
hat out from under the manger and
the milking stool from under me, and
began to maul the cow, I forgot all
about the treatment of horned cattle.
Why she fairly galloped over me,
and I never want to read your paper
We tried to explain to him that
the advice did not apply to brindle
covs at all, but he hobbled out, the
maddest man that ever asked a cow
to hoist. Country Gentleman,

Advice From BUI Wye.
A recent letter from Michigan
written in lead pencil, and evident
ly during honrs when the writer
should have been learning her geog
raphy lesson, "is very enthnsiastio
over the prospect of coming OHt here
where one girl can have a lover for
every day in -the week. She signs
herself Rosalinde with a small r, and
adds in a postcript that she "means
Yes, Rosalinde; that's what we are
afraid of. We had a kind of vaguo
fear that yon meant business, so ws
did not reply to your lettes, Wy
oming already has women enough
who write with a led pencil. We
are also provided with pretty poor
spellers, and we do not desire to,
ransack Michigan for affectionate
but sapheaded girls.
Slay in Michigan," Rosalinde, nntit
we write yon, and one of these days
when you have been a mother eight
or nine times, and as you stand in
the golden haze ' in the back yard
hanging out damp shirts on an un
ce! tain line, while your ripe and
dewy mouth is stretched around a
basswood clothespin, you 'will thank
me for this advice.
Michigan is the place for you. It
is the home of the sweet singer and
the abiding place of the Detroit
Free Press. We can't throw any
such influence around you- here as
those,you have at home.
Do not despair, Rosalinde. Some
day a man, with a great, warm, man
ly heart and a pair of red steers will
see you and love you, and he will
take you on his strong arms and pro
tect you from the Michigan elimate,
just as devotedly as any of our
people here can. We do not wish
to be misunderstood in this matter.
It is not as a lover that we have said
so much on the girl question, but in
the domestic aid department, and
when we get a long letter from a
young girl who eats slate pencils
and reads "Onida'' behind her atlas
we feel like going over there to Mich
igan with a trunk strap and doing a
little missionary work.
