Mr. Jerry Borst and the superintendent

The Kittitas Localizer has learned re

discovered on the east side of the Cascade
mountains, and not over a day's ride from
Ellensburg. The coal resembles the Cum

are interested in the field. A cabin is be
ing built at the mine, and preparations are
making for its development. The seam is
some six feet in thickness. Sixteen loca

which about covers the whole discovery.

The Eugene Guard of last week says :
On last Tuesday night near Cottage Grove
Posy Veatch, while on his way home from
church was ordered to throw up his hands
by some unknown person coming from the
brush close by, which he refused to do, at
the same time drawing his pistol and both
commenced shooting, the Iir3t shot of the
robber cutting out the buiton hole of Mr.
Veatch's overcoat. Veatch thought this a
pretty close callbut stood firm and fired a
shot at the robber, who responded by tiring
another, but missing his aim tried it again
and his pistol snapped, when Veatch turned
loose on him with two more shots making
him hunt his way into the brush. Should
the party be found he will likely be found
looking up a tree for breath.
Without a Paper.
An exchange publishes the following for
the truth : "Once upon a time a certain
man got mad at the editor and stopped his
paper. The next week he sold his corn at
four cents below market price. Then his
property was sold for taxes, because he
didn't read the Sheriff sale. He was ar
rested and fined eight dollars for going
bunting on Sunday, simply because he
didn't know it was Sunday; and he paid
three hundred dollars for a lot of forged
notes that had been advertised for two
weeks and the public cautioned not to ne
gotiate them. He then paid a big Irish man,
with a foot on him like a forge ham
mer, to kick him all the way to the Dews
paper office, where he paid four years sub
scription in advance and made the editor
sign an agreement to knock him down and
rub him if he ever ordered his paper stop
ped again." Such is life without a news
"My Dear," said a fond father to his
yungest daughter, "come hither and sit

shell-like ear. List to my gentle voice as
it goeth out to you in firm but kindly tones.
I observe with deep feeling of regret that
John Henry continues his visits here four
nights in each week, and I observe with
still deeper feelings of regret that you en
courage these visits. Nay, do not shake
your head. Mary Jane, for you meet him
with smiles, and it is not a woman's nature
to smile and smile and be unwillin' still.
Give the sombrehued past one searching
glance, Mary Jane. A few brief years ago
your eldest sister, Ann Elizabeth, brought
home on the eve of a sunlit day a blushing
young husbind and they still occupy the
parlor chamber. Then Catherine Maria
became a happy bride and when the joyous
couple returned from their wedding tour
they took my room, while I and your
mother moved to the attic. Next, Frances
Eugenia brought home a clinging, fragile
youth of dyspeptic mould and humorous
cast of countenance, and I had to plaster
the room over the summer kitchen . And
only a few short months ago, when the last
set of twins came, I was obliged to build
an addition to the south end. I feel now,
my beloved daughter, that I must protest
against a futher increase of family, except
by the hand of Providence. As much as I
would like to see you happily wedded 1
cannot consent to take John Henry in out
of the cold. There is no room to build
another addition, and your fond parents are
growing too aged and infirm to sleep in ,the
wood-shed loft. John Henry is doubtless
an attractive youth, but there is no vacancy
for him in the domicile."
There exists a degree of prejudice against
coloring butter. Persons not informed in
reference to this matter entertain the idea
that the coloring preparations are chemical
extracts of vegetable colors, and are per
fectly harmless. No one is afraid to eat
the red or yellow beet, on account of their
color. The extracts used for coloring but
ter or cheese are equally harmless.
Some say, why use color ! Why not
leave it as it is by nature ? In answer, we
say such is not the principle that we follow
ordinarily. We rather aim to remedy nat
ural defects. For this reason we trim the
trees in our lawns and the hedges that sur.
round thom, into fanciful shapes. We paint
our houses with colors pleasing to the eye,
although other colors might be more dura
ble, and preserve the building for a longer
time. We array ourselves in clothing of
varied hues, although scientists claim we
should wear pure white in summer and
black in winter . And they must be cut the
latest style or we are not happy. We all
have an eye to beauty. The taste demands
yellow butter. June butter by nature is
yellow. This is the standard natural color.
It pleases the eye. It looks better on the
table, if it tastes no better. Therefore,
those who purchase butter prefer yellow
butter, and will pay more for it. There is
no deception in the color, as it does not in
the least effect the quality. It does not
affect the taste, but it does improve the
looks, and iu that way adds to its value.
A tasty house-keeper wishes her table to
look well. She knows that a plate of nice
yellow butter looks much better than a
plate of white, lard -colored, and this is a
taste which is commendable, and which
butter-makers must not overlook.
Turned End lor End.
Many fancy stories have been told first
and last about Chinese cooks, and people
who have had dealings with this class are
generally firm believers in the old saying,
that "the lord sends victuals, but the devil
sends cooks." A case in point occurred in
this city a day or two since. A lady en
gaged a cook who had been represented to
her as an artist in his line. Her husband
who had tired of ill-cooked food, on hearing
of the new acquisition, determined to have
something a little extra in the grub line.
so carried home that evening a lot of brains
and some ox-tails. He delivered them to
John, telling him to fry the brains for
breakfast and make soup for dinner of the
ox-tails. Next morning he came down to
breakfast, his mouth watering in anticipa
tion; but what was his disgust when, on
removing the cover from the dish set before
him, he saw the ox tails fried brown. The
Chinese (cooks) must go, is now that man's
motto. It is, however, not so vary singu
lar that one of a nation who have no al
phabet in their language, who wear their
shirts outside their pantaloons and whose
compass points to the south, should expect
to rind the brains at the wrong end of an
Sixty Years in Oregon.
A Salem co rrespondent to the Oregonian
gives the following : "There has been con
siderable controversy recently as to who is
the pioneer resident of Oregon. I think
that Marion county has the honor of hav
ing the oldest settler in the state, if not on
the Pacific coast, in the person of Mr. John
B. Gobar, who resides near Brooks station,
about six miles north of Salem. Mr. Gobar
was born in Montreal, Cauada, in 1805,
and at the age of 18 enlisted iu the service
of the Hudson Bay Company, arriving in
Oregon in the fall of 1823. He was sta
tioned at Astoria (then called Fort George,)
engaged in the various duties of a frontier
trading post. Afterwards for a short time
he was in the company's employ at "Spo
kane House," a post near Spokane Falls,
W. T. With that exception he has re
sided in Oregon over sixty years. He has
been a resident of Marion county almost
half a century. Hon. B. F. Harding in
forms me that he saw the old gentleman a
few days ago at his farm and says that he
is hale and hearty for one of his age and
bids fair to continue for some time to be
the pioneer of this coast ."
Every fall finds the poultry -houses over
crowded, and even way up into the win
ter is this the case, until the flocks get
thinned down by gradually selling them off
or until the bulk of them are hurried away
by the annual slaughter just before the
holidays. When you commenced in the
spring with a few choice pullets and a cock,
the house was large enough to comfortably
accommodate them, but when the youug
birds are forced to shelter by the approach
of cold weather, having entirely out-grown
their mother's care, the house proves to be
far too small, though but few breeders
make any extra accommodations for them.
a3 they undoubtedly should do, to secure
them comfort and insure their health. If
sickness once gets a hold in such an over
crowded house, scarcely anything will stay
its ravages until there are few if any birds
left Even if they do not die under such
careless treatment, they cannot possibly
keep their hea th, and will become sickly
or droopy, and lose much of the weight put
upon them when they were not in such
close quarters, breathing the fetid atmos
phere of the overcrowded house.
EDITED BV THE W. C. T. V.
This word so hated and reviled in the
past, such a terror to evil doers and to a
large class of people who never want to
have present conditions disturbed has
grown very rapidly into general favor the
past few years. The two ponderous argu
ments used against it, "you have no right
to prohibit" and "you cannot enforce that
law," have been demolished as much by
their manifest absurdities, as by the testi
mony of experience and facts.
While men have been trying by weak
sophistries and false witnesses to continue
the reignjof ruin, the iaily news has been
every year more and more loaded with
murder, suicide, robbery and crime of
every awful type, caused entirely by the
1 dramshop. And the public cannot fail to
see it. This beautiful country where
every man and woman would live in com
fort and competence, but for the licensed
crime-schools is more cursed with tramps,
paupers, criminals and human wrecks of
, every type, than any country in the world
i that is not equally drunken.
I It is patent to everybody, that prohibi
: tion would do away with all but an insig
j nificaut fraction of this vice, crime and
misery. Where the crime-schools have
been driven out or never existed there is
virtue, comfort and uninterrupted peace
and prosperity. And honest upright peo
ple are becoming convinced everywhere,
that it is a crime for them and us to per
mit a foreign enemy to spread debauchery
ruin, misery broadcast over our land. They
know too that it is as easy to enforce a law
against a dramshop, gaming den and pest
house as against any other nuisance or
Wherever religious or other conventions
touch upon this question, they now call
for prohibition as a remedy for the evil.
As the world moves along, its thinkers
pick up and adopt every doctrine and
policy that the leaders of the temperance
reform have put forth in their platform
after it has been at tirst ridiculed and op
posed. Section by section the world of common
sense has accepted everything and rejected
nothing that has been declared a policy of
our reform. Therefore as prohibition, by a
party elected to enact and enforce it, has
for many years been the settled policy of
all the thinking men who have pioneered
and piloted the temperance program thus
far, we may be sure of the speedy general
