.. THE BAD BOY. :
"You look sleepy," said the gro
reryman to the bad boy, as. he came
in the store yawning, and stretched
himself out on the counter on a pile
of brown wrapping paper, iti rach of
a box of rasins, "what's -tlte matter?
Been siting up with j-our girl all
"Naw! I wish I had. Wakefulness
with my girl is sweeter and more
restful than . sleep. No, this is the
result of being a dutiful sun, and I am
tired. You see pa and ma have sep
arated. That is, not for., keeps, but
pa has got frightened about burglars,
and he goes up into the atiio to sleep.
He says it is to aret fresh air, but he
knows better. Ma has got so accus
tomed to pa's snormg that she can't
go to sleep without it, and the first
niglit pa left her she didn't sleep a
wink, and yesterday I was playing on
an old accordean that I had traded a
dog collar for after our dog was pois.
oned, and whn I touched the low
notes I noticed ma dosed off to sleep
it sounded so much like pa's snore
and last night ma made me sit up and
play for her to sleep. She reste
splendid, but I am all broke, up, and
I sold the accordean this morning to
the man who watches our block. It
is queer what a different effect music
wiil have on different people. While
ma was sleeping the sleep of innocence
under the influnce of ray counterfeit
ol pa's snore, the night watch was
broke of his rest by it, arid he bought
t of me to give it to the son ot an
enemy ot ins. Well, 1 have quit
"No, you don't tell me," said the
grocery man, as he moved the box
of raisins out of reach. "You never
will amount to anything unless you
stick to one trade or profession. A

feels that he is a fraud, and when he
puts a little syrup in a tumbler, and
fires a little eweetened wind, and
water in it, until the soap suds fill the
tumbler, and charges ten cents for
thai which only costs, a cent, a sensi
tive soda jerker who has reformed,
feels that it is worse than tbee card
monte. I couldn't stand the wear on
tn' conscience so I have got a perma
nent job as a super, and shall open
the first of September.
Say, what's a super? It isn't one
of these free lunch places, that the
mayor close's at. midnight; is it?" and
the groceiyrnan looked sorry.
"O, thunder, you tvaot salt on you.
A 6uper is an adjunct to the stage. A
super is a fellow that assists the stars
and things, carrying chairs and tak
ing up carpets, and sweeping the sand
off the stas;e after a dancer has -danc
ed a jig, aud he brings beer for the
actors, and helps lace up corsets, and
anything that he can do to add to
the effect of the play. Privately,
now, 1 have been acting as. a super
for.a long time, on the sly, and my
folks did not know,, anything about
it, but since I reformed and decided
to be good, I felt it my duty; lo tell
pa .and ma about it. The; liews broke
ma all up at first, but pa said some
of the besi actors in the country were
supes once, and some ot them were
noy7 ind he thought euping
would be . -the making cf me.
Ma thought going on the
stage would be .mj ruination.
She said the .theater was the hot-bed
of sin, and brought more ruin than
the chnrch could head off. But when:
I told. her that they always gave-a
supe two or three extra tickets for
his family, she said the theater had
some redeeming features, and when
I said my entrance upon the . stage
would give me .a splendid opportunity
to. get ihe recipe for face powder
from the actresses, for ma, and I
could find out how the actresses
managed to get .number, four . teet
into number one shoes, ma said she
wished I would .commence euping
right off. Ma says there are some
things about the. theater that are not
so all-rfired bad, and she wants me to
get seats for the first comic opera
that comes along. Pa wants it un
derstood with the manager that, a
supe' father has a right to go be
hind the scenes toisee that no harm
befalls him, but I know what pa
wants. . lie may seem pious, ard all
that, but be likea to look &V ballet
girls bftter than any m?ek and lowly
follows r 1 ever see, and some dav
you will hear music .i a the ,air. Pa
thinks theaters ire very bad when he
has to pay a dollar for a reserved
seat, but when he can get iu for noth
ing as a relative of one of the
'perfeshy"Jtlie theater bask many re
deeming qualities. Fa and. ma think
I am going into . the business fresh
anu green, nut i Know all about it.
When I played with McCulloush,
"Ohj what you giving us, said the
gi-ocery man in disgust, 'when you
played with McCuliough 1 What "did
yon do ?"
"What did I do? Why, you old
seed cucumber, the whole play cen
tered round me. Do you remem
ber the scenes iu the Roman forum,
where McCuliough addressed the
populace of Rome. I was the pop
ulace. Don't you remember a small
feller standing in front of the Roman
orator Vakhig it in; with a night shirt
on, with bare legs aud arms? That
was me, and everything depended
on me. Suppose I had gone off the
stage in .. that . critical moment, or
Ifed when t should have looked
fierce at the inspired words of the
Roman senator, it would have been
a.diad give away on McCuliough.
As the populace of itome I consider
myself a glittering success, and Mc
took me by the hand when they
carried Caesar's dead body out, and
he said, 'us tfcree did ourselves proud.'
Such praise from McCullouo-h is sel
dom accorded to a supe. But I don'
consider the populace of the irunerial

W here I excel is in coming out be
fore the curtain between the acts
and .unhooking the carpet. Some
supes go out and turn their backs to
the audience, showing the patches on
their pants, and rip up ..the carpet
with no style about them, and the
dust &'fsx and the boys yell 'supe
and the mtpe gels nervous and for
gets his. cue and goes .off tumbling
over the carpet, a-id tha ru-cheatr
leader is afraid the supe will fall on
um. But I co out with a auint
dignity, that is,only gaiiied by
peneuce, and I take hold of the car
pet the way Hamlet takes up the
iuire,ira me auaiencf is
paralysed- I kneel down on the
carpet, to unhook.il, in a devotional
sort of way that makes the audience
bow their heads as though they were

that I am,, only assnpe I have the car

theatrical Reason opens, cause we act-
Lors get .tired: laying off.
'-'Well, I'd like to go behind the
scenes with you some night," said the
groceryman, offering the had boy an
orange to get solid with him, in view
stf future complimentary tickets. "No
danger .is there?" ,. . . ; ,
"No. danger if. you keep off the grass.
But you'd a did to see my Sunday
school teacher one Saturday night last
su.mmer. He keeps books in . a store,
and is pretty soon week days, but he
can tell you more about Daniel in the
lion's den on Sunday than anybody.
Re knew that I was solid at the thea-.
ter, and wanted me to get him behind
the. scenes one night, and another supe
wanted tj go to the sparing match,
and I thought it wouldn't be any harm,
to work my teacher in, so I got bim a;
job . that night to hold the dogs for the
Uncle Toms Cabin, show. He was
in one of the wings holding the chains,
and the dogs were just anxious to eo
on, and it was all my teacher could do na OLeei company it about 1500
to hold them. I told him to wind the conla of wood by fir.
chains around his wrists,, and he did
so, and just then Eliza began to skip
across the ice, and we sicked the blood
hounds on before my teacher jcould
unwind the chainsiipom his wrists, and
the dogs pulled him right out on the
stage, on his stomach, and drawed him
across, and he ieried one dog and
kicked him in the stomach, and took
mouthfull of his coat tail and shook it
and I guess the dog got some meat.
anyway the teacher climbed up a step
ladder, and the. dogs, treed him, and
the step ladder fell down, and we
grabbed the dogs and put some court
plaster on the teacher's aose, . where
the fire extinguisher peeled it,, and he
Said he Would go home, cause the
theater was demoralizing in its ten
dency. I spose it was not right, but
when the teacher stood up to hear our
Sunday School lesson the next day
cause he was tired where the dog bit
him, J said 'sick-em,' irf a whisper,
when his back was turned, and hie
jumped clear to the Bible class, and
put his hand around to his coat .tails as
tho' he thought the Uncle Tom's Cabin
party were giving a matinee in the
church. The Sunday ..schocl lessen
was about the dogs licking the sores of
Lazarus, and the teacher .said we juust
not confound the good degs of Bible
time with the- savage beasts of the
present day, that would shake the
daylights out of Lazarus and make him
climb the cedars of Lebanon quicker
than you could say Jack Robinson
and go off chewing the cud of bitter
reflection on Lazarus' coat tail I
dont tjiirik a Sunday school teacher

DESCRIPTION pF BENTON OOTNTY.
Benton county is situated in the
heart of the Willamette valley; describ
ed by old voyagers as one bf the most
fertile and charming valleys of the
world, the scenery not excelled by any
the growth of grass luxeriant, in which
the wild deer gamboled; the margins of
all the streams skirted with evergreen
trees, often reaching to the hight of
throe hundred feet; the air balmy and
delightful , to .the .senses;, in .the back
ground rises imposing mountains, cloth
ed with living, green, until their sum
mits are lest in perpetual snow. Such
was the land descrided which brough
so many early pioneers thousands of
miles away from their native state.
to tix their habitation and. build up
homes lor themselves and their poster
ity in this lovely dime and laud, then
far away from civilization, arid on the
most western verge of he. Continent of
America. The rail, roads whirh Qr
being builtall overthis fair-land; and the
many thousand busy hands we find en
gaged in the active industries of life,
prove that their effort in coming to
this favored garden spot of the world,
was', not a failure, but, 4 grand, success.
Benton County contains 1,110 square
mrt.es, a-.. population of about 8,000 a
valuation of taxable property exclusive
of indebtedness according t3 the assess

by the Pacific ocean; on the east by the
Willamette river and Linn county; on
the south by Lane counry, and on the

celebrated for its richness of soil, min
erals, timber, and healthful temperate
Benton county was organized under
the provisional government, on Decem
ber 23d, 1847, and extended from
Polk county to the Callifornia State
line. The present sooth; line of the
county was established Janusrv 15 th,
