An Independence correspondent to
the Oregnnian writes us follows: -Di
versified farming has received a Muck
eye in this country. One farmer, who
lielieves and swears I y the Oi'egoniun,
took itsndviee last year, with the fol
lowing result: Hups, ten acres, not
worth picking; liulter from ten cows,
A No. 1 quality, no market fur it; egns
from fifty hens, worth 12 cents in
goods; bacon from fifty hogs, can't get
any cash for it; only trade nt less than
bacon cost; rye, 1200 Inishel-i, worth
loss than wheat and no market; hurley,
800 bushels, can only get nn oiler of
45 cents delivered in Portland less
than wheat would have brought at tin
same place. Add to this dried fruit,
which he always had, but which will
bring nothing this year, and see what
diversified fanning comes to. Please,
tell the editor to sing a dill'ereiu song
until Portland or some, other town gets
enough f-nterpriso about it to build
somu factories awl bring some peop'ie
to the, country that will consume, pro
duce. Wheat raising as a specialty
will hold out just as long as cent per
cent holds out in Portland.

Tlm newly developed mines in linker
county, known ns the Pine Valley
mines, arc thus reported by a Portland
merchant, lately returned from that
section, in tlm News:
Tlm mines are situated sixty miles
from Baker City, and are reached by
stages. Tlm fare is $6. Nothing much
is doing at present, and only a few men
are at work. They make from $3 50
to 85 per day, although $10 and $15
to tlm man per day has leen made.
But few buildings lire going up at pres
ent, and everybody is taking it easy
and preparing for a rush later on, prob
ably next Spring. Cornucopia is the
urnst important place in the mines and
has probab'y not fur from L'UO people.
There ure also three hotels, two meat
markets, three stubles, three grocery
stores, und about a dozen saloons. The
inhabitants of the town are orderly,
and ns yet no iroubln has occurred.

A snake of a very rare kind is no '
nt the Smithsonian Institute. It cam
there on Friday, having been capture
near the famous Black Horn wall, :;
the line of the Baltimoie and Ohi i '
railroad, near Deer Park. Marvland'
The peculiarity of the snake is that i
can and does whistle and sing like i
young mocking bird. In general ap
pearance it m like the ordinary snake
except its head is shaped sotnethinj
like a pug dog. In length it measure! '
futir feet, and tlm largest part ot 1U
body is 4 inches in circumference.; j
When it whistles or Mnrs it makes a
series of jumps liko a frog. The head j
snake professor of the Smithsonian In-' '
stitution is now at Wood's Hall, Mass.,' j
and it will probably lie Bent there for j !
his examination and classification. It ';
is in shape and color altogether differ-; ) ,
en,t from the African singing snakes,
and besides issues a louder and more ; t
mi I'oinii ii. nnmiri rit u'lu.i n nun ,a M.
corded of any of tlm classes of snakes,
that are found in the East Indies. A j
similar character of a snake is said in
the books to be frequently seen on the '
island of Sumatra. So far this is the
first singing or whistling snake that
has been found in this ctuury. The
man who caught it supposed he was
chasing a young mocking bird.
llheem, of tlm Smithsonian Institute,
has contradicted much of the popular 1
belief concerning snakes. The venom
ous hoop snake, which takes its tail in '
its mouth and rolls along liko a hoop,
and tlm blow snake, the breath of which
is deadly, exist only in the imagination.
The idea that Rerpents sting with the
tongue is erroneous. An impression
prevails that the number of poisonous
snakes is great, but in North America
there are but three species the rattle
snake, the copperhead or moccasin, and
tho coral. Snakes do not jump; they
reach suddenly forward perhaps halt
the length of their bodies.
The Ohio llepublicans are beginning
to get in a state of mind over the pros
pect of losing the bulk of the 20,000
or 25,000 colored voters in that State.
At seme time in the past it seems that
Judge Foraker, tho Republican candi
date for liovcrnor, opposed the admis
sion of colored pupils to the public
schools of the State, while Iloadly, his
probable Democratic competitor, acted
as volunteer counsel in their behalf,
The colored men have not forgotten it,
and, in case of Hoadly's renomiiiation,
are threatening to go over to him in a
body. In case this threat is carried
out Hoadly's election would be assured,
and it is not to be wondered at that
the prospect gives the Republican lead
ers a bad attack of tho shivers.
The Oregoniuu Railroad Company,
who are now running regular trains on
thn east side (narrow gauge) road, have
issued a list of freight tariffs making
rates on grain between Portland and'
points on the narrow gauge. The rates'
in car loads from Coburg, the southern
terminus, to Portland, iB 20 cents per
100 pounds, from Brownsvillo 16 cents,,
from Lebanon Junction 13 cents.
And now the Mugwumps o? Indian
apolis are excited because the new
Democratic postmaster is turning out -Republicans
and filling their places
with Democrats. President Cleveland
has been appealed to. t Perhaps the
new Democratic postmaster was aston
ished when he went into his office and
saw none but Republicans on guard.
