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 night?" . "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 jerking soda. "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 rolling hen never catches the early angleworm." I), but I am all .right now.

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, here-once " "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 . - t . . - r. . - city ot: Rome iriy RjaSttNvpieee. 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 lb church, and before they realize that I am,, only assnpe I have the car pet unhooked and march out the way i ..i.'pui lum imci uoes wneu ne goes, out jbet weerithe acts at church v.uauri ins sinri. iney never gay' me, cause I act well my part. .

I shall be glad when the 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 ought to bring up personal reminiscen ces before a class of children, do you ? Well, some time next fall you put on ! :. j- a ciean snirt ana a pair ot sheet iron pants, with .stove legs on. -the. inside, and I will take, you behind the scenes to see some good moral show. In the meantime, if you have- occasion to talk with pa tell him that Booth, and Barrett and Keene commenced on the stage as supes, and Salvini roasted peanuts in the lobby of some theater.

Ann Eliza (No. 19) the apostate, who took the lecture field', is said to be married end living in Chicago, but I could not learn the husband's name. Some of the wid ows live with their families in the "Lion House," so-called from the carved stones that cap the pillars ol the entrances where they lived dur ing Brigham's lifetime, and the main building in which he lived., is new the headquarters of the church. None ol the widows have remarried, reports to the contrary notwithstanding. Amelia, it ipH be remembered, was the most attractive of BrighamV plurality, and was the recipient of the most conspicuous favors. She was too good to liye. iu the prophet's r t 1 1 n 1 narem, anu ne omit ior ner, across the street from- the Lion house, au elegant maBsion of stone, similar to some of the residences that adorn Prairie avenue, in Chicago.' It was furnished by him with-costly luxuri ance, and here he abode, during the last years of his life, in the bosom ot his favorite, while across the way - in the old adobe structure, which was erected soon after the exodus from Nauvoo, the .other seventeen re mained wilhouta murmur. .... Courtiers came to woo her, and it was reported at one time that she had been "sealed" to-one ot the apostles, a business man who lives at Ogden, but she rejected his addresses, and still wears a widow's Weeds. . The Gentiles know little about her, but the Mormons say she is true to Brigham, and believes that she will sit with him in' glory. She was the wife of his old age, and never had any children.

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 ment roll of i882.of $2,357,692, and 1 . j . . . is located in tne neart ot the Willam ette valley. It is bounded on the west by the Pacific ocean; on the east by the Willamette river and Linn county; on the south by Lane counry, and on the north by Polk county. This county is celebrated for its richness of soil, min erals, timber, and healthful temperate climate. 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, 1 85 1. The county seat was established at Marysville on January 23d,"r8s 1, and the name changed tc Corvallis De cember 2oth, r85?. - ' - : The State Capital was located at Corvallis, January 16th, 1855, and re located atSalem, Decmber 12th, 1855. During that time the Oregon Statesman was published at Corvallis by Ashael Bush, State Printer. . ' . ' There were four or five claims taken in the county in the fall of i845, but not mcved upon until 1846. During the latter year the following named persons made bona fide settlements: C.
