ORIGIN OF A POPUI AR TERM.
The way in whiehj the profane
term " printer's devil" originated is
this: Printing used to be called the
Black Art, and the boys who assist
ed the pressmen were called tbe imps.
According to the lesjend, Aldus Man
utius, a printer of Venice, took a li'
lle negro boy, left behind by a mer
chant vessel, to assist him in his bus
iness. It soon got Wind that Aldus
was assisted by a little black imp,
and to dispel the rumor he showed
the boy to an assembled crowd and
said: "Be it known to Venice that I,
Aldus Manutius, printer to the Holy
church and the Doge, have this day,
made a public exposure of the 'print
er's devil.' All who think he is not
flesh and blood may come and pinch
hira." The people were satisfied and
no longer molested the negro lad.
A WONDERFUL BRIDGE.
A remarkable bridge is now in
courte of construction over Kinzina
Creek, near Bradford, Pa., on the
line of the New York, Lake Erie &
Western Kail way. Tbe structure
has a total length of 2,051 from abut
ment to abutment, and the height of
the rail above the bed of the creek is
01 feet. It consists of one span 02
feet lon5, twanty spans 01 feet each,
and twenty spans 38 feet 6 inches
each. The trusses which extend
the whole length, are 6 feet high and
ten feet apart, made similar to those
of the elevated railroads, and are
known as the lattice gilder. The
spread of the posts at the highest
point is 104 J- feet being about one
third of the height, which gives base
and stability to the structure, and
prevents any vibration or laterial
motion. The bridge will be, it is
said, the highest bridge in the
world. It is 60 feet higher than
Niagara suspension bridge, 170 feet
higher than the great bridge across
the Ohio at Cincinnati, 189 feet
above High bridge, and 4-5 feet high
er than Portage railroad bridge over
the Genesee River. The bridge will
consume 40,000,000 pounds of iron,
and will require 30,000 yards of ma
sonary. The cost will be over $500,
POTATOES UNDER STRAW.
Several years ago there was much
said about growing potatoes under
straw. Interest in tbe subject ap
pears to be renewed, to judge from
inquiries. The method is very simple.
Tbe land is prepared in the usual
manner and the rows marked off; tbe
sets are dropped along tbe rows and
very slightly or not at all covered
with soil. The whole field, or bed,
is then covered with eight or ten
inches thickness of old straw. Noth
ing more is required until digging
time, unless some strong weeds should
make their way through the straw,
and these may be pulled. It is
claimed that the yield is larger and
the potatoes are much handsomer
than those treated in the usual manner.
Rev. H. M. Hudson, in tbe Journal
of Education, says that the schools
of sixty years ago were better than
those of to-day, because the educa
tion of tbe hand and heart was then
simultaneous with that of the mind, various universities,
ATEMDEEFOOT AT TOMCST0NE
A few days ago a flashy young man
from an Eastern college arrived at
Tombstone, Arizona; and registered
at tbe principal hotel. A socially
inclined person in a blue shirt and
wide rimmed hat who chanced to be
in the office, good naturedly answer
ed every question and volunteered a
vast amount of interesting informa
tion about Arizona in general and
Tombstone in particular.
"Do you see them hills?'' asked the
Tombstoner, pointing through one of
tbe office windows, "Well them hills
is chock full of pay dirt."
"My dear sir," he said proudly,
but kindly, "you should say those
bills are not 'them hills is.' "
Th Tombstoner was silent for a
moment. He looked tbe young man
from the East critically over as if he
was estimating the size of coffin he
would wear. Then drawing out an
ivory-stocked seven-shooter, elabo
rate style and finish, he said in a
soft, mild, musical tone of voice that
sounded like a wildwood brook
conning o'er its pebble bed; "My
gentle unsaltcd tenderfoot from the
land of the rising sun, this here's a
hint that you and me disagrees on
aod we might as well settle it right
now. I haven't looked in a gram
mar lately, but I'm going to stand
by that opinion while I've a shot
left. I'll give you jest three minutes
to think calmly on the subject, for
you piobibly spoke in haste the first
time, and then I'll bear your decision.
The young man from the East
looked down the delicately-chased
barrel of the revolver into the placid
eye of the Tombstoner and began to
feel that many points in the grammar
are uncertain and liable to grow
more so. Then be thought of the
the coroner's inquest, and of the ver
dict, "came to death by standing in
front of Colorado Tom's seven-stoot-er,"
and of the long pine box going
east by express with So9 charges on
it, and before half the three minutes
was up he was ready to acknowl
edge his error, "Since he had thougt
it over calmly," he said, "he believed
'them hills is,' right. He had spoken
on the spur of the moment ," he add
ed "and begged a thousand pardons
for his presumptuous effort to substi
tute bad grammar for good."
The Tombstoner forgave him free
ly, and, grasping bis hand firmly,
"I know'd you'd say you was wrong
after you thought a moment. I ad
mire'a man who gives right in with
out arguing when he knows he's
wrong. Come along and irrigate."
And they irrigated.

At the recent Educational Con
vention which was held at Frankfort,
Ky., an address to the people of that
State was prepared, which is a ring
ing demand for a reform in the meth
ods of education now in vogue. It
concludes as follows: The sluggish
stream of public sentiment must be
agitated by tbe pulpit, by the press,
by the school commissioner, by the
lecturer and by the politician. All
candidates for the Legislature and
for the State offices should be re
quired to announce their views on
this Vital subject in unmistakable
terms, and no enemy of the schools
should be honored by the suffrages
of the people. We are aiming for
progressive legislation, backed by an
educational ballot. With a vjw,
therefore, to systematic organization
and continuous agitation, the Frank
fort Convention adjourned to meet
in LouisviHe at a date to be fixed in
September, when the work now in
augurated will be enlarged under
the auspices of the forthcoming
Southern Exposition, and we respect
fully insist that proper steps be taken
in every county of the State to secure
representation in the Louisville Con
vention, irrespective of race, of party
and of vocation. The movement has
been auspiciously begun, and now
let every friend of the cause push
onward without fear, doubt or hesitation.

and found dinner was not quit;
ready and he fussed about it, she
"Well, get a girl to help do the
work and then I will guarantee your
meals ready for you when you hap
pen to come home on time."
"That's all right!" says he; Til do
so. Now there's Mollie O'Rearn,
she is out of employment now, and
I believe we could get her."
"Indeed, and you'll not get her.
You are a little too Well acquainted
with her already, I'm thinking."
"Well, how would Jennie Friel
do ? She's a nice, well-behaved girl
and a splendid cook."
"Splendid cook, eh ? and how do
you know that she's a fine cook
pray ? Wnere have you been to sec
her cook ?"
"Never saw her couk; just heard of
her cooking, that's all."
"No, sir. I'll have none of your
Mollies and Jennies about me. I do
not want any girl. If I get any help
I'll do the selecting, and you can bet
all you are worth it won't be any
"Not any girl, eh ! Oh, I see !
You want a man servant."
"No, I will get no man servant;
but if I get any, I will get some
dried-up, snaggy-toothed old
woman, with a breath that will
knock you back like a shock of elec
tricity should you go near her. I've
got no time to lose watching you
and the hired girl of your own selec

and walked out of the kitchen into

"What for?" asked a friend who
happened to be present.
"It did not occur to me until just
now, but I disturbed them a few
days ago, and I ought to apologize."
"How did it happen ?"
"Well, yon see I went there and
ang the bell for fifteen minutes, but
no one came to the door. At last
one of the young ladies came and
'So it is only yoti, is it ? We
thought is was a tramp," and then
she shut the door in my face. I feel
sorry that I disappointed them and
I would like to tell them so."
And he said ibis without the slight
est intention of being sarcastic.
Cooking forms part of the regular
education of "oung ladies in Vienna,
but they do not learn tbe art at
cooking clubs, or at public lectures,
as in England and this country, and
they are rarely taught in their ov;n
kitchens. It is the custom to go 'to
some great house- that of a princess
or some very rich banker, where
there are famous chefs, who give
lessons in cookery. When a chef
engages to cook for a nobleman he
usually stipulaies thai he is to have
the privilege of teaching a certain
number of young ladies. These young
ladies need not even know the mis
tress of the house, and they make
their arrangements with the cook

HISS FRANCES E. WILLARO OF CHICAGO.
The Leader of the Hosts of Hiriam and
of Deborah, in a new Crusade for
Gad and Kraf and BBSive
Miss Frances E. Willard is of New
England parentage, her parents be
ing natives of Vermont. She is now
President of the National Woman's
Christain Temperance Union, and
has held the position lor nearly four
years past, having been unanimously
re elected at Louisville by delegates
from thirty states. She is a highly
educated lady, a graduate of an East
ern college, and has studied in Paris
and traveled extensively in Europe.
After returning to the United States
she was President of the Woman's
College at Evanston (the leading
suburb of Chicago), and editor of the
Chicago Post, having taken charge
of that paper on the death of her
brother, who was its editor until his
death. Miss Willard and her broth
er's wife took editorial charge of the
paper and displayed a high order of
talent in its conduct. After retiring
from editorial work she took the field
as a lecturer in the temperance
cause and worked with Mr. Moody
for a time in Gospel tempi ranee work
in the City of Boston. While en
gaged with Mr. Moody she met Miss
Gordon, her efficient secretary.
Miss Gordon is a native of Massa-
uhusette, the daughter of a former
treasurer of the American Missionary
Board. Miss Willard recognized in
her the one sho needed as a c. -work-er'in
her temperance labors. Since
that time she has been the private
secretary, beloved friend and con
stant companion of Miss Willard in
her labors in behalf of temperance.
She is a skjlliul organizer, as is
shown by her great success in enlist
ing the interest of young ladies in
the cause. She is also a very inter
esting speaker, and recently address
ed tho young ladies of Cleveland,
Ohio, by invitations, from one of the
pulpits of that city with great effect.
She is enthusiastic in her devotions
to Miss Willard and tho great work
she is accoinp ishing.
After finishing her labors with Mr.
Moody, Mis Willard returned to
her work in the W. C. T. U, and in
the fall of 1880 was elected to the
position of President of that organi
zation, which office she now holds.
In this position she has shown re
markable statesmanship and nneqiial
ed executive ability. To her energy
is due to the prosperous condition of
tbe organization which she represents
and which has now attained to a pos
ition to accomplish the greatest possi
ble amount of good, and is the larg
est society ever organized and con--trolled
exclusively by women, num
bering 50,000 members in the United
States. She has organized for tem
perance work thirty-two committees
which are planned to represent and
care for every possible phase of tem
perance work and under her manage
ment there are now stale auxiliary
societies in thirty-five states and
several territories, all of which are
fully equipped for labor, and each
state has its own sub-committees
which report to the nalioual society,
that it is "doing more for the tem
perance cause to-day than all others
Miss Willard's object in coming to
Oregon is to strengthen the work
already done and assist in every way
in advancing Christain temperance
work. As a leader and organizer
she ha3 displayed an ability not
equaled by any other leader who has
ever been engaged in temperance
work, and her generalship has not,
been excelled by any teacher on any
moral question. She has conceived
the necessity of employing adequate
means for overthrowing the traffic,
and of establishing uational sobriety;
of eradicating the fountains of eviL
which are sapping the life of the na
tion. She advocates total abstir.ance
for the individual and prohibition for
