in a large factory in Philadelphia,
working at the same trade. JIaving
an hour for their nooning every day,
each undertook to use it !a accom

and each one succeeded at last. One
of these two mechanics used his daily

vention of a machine for sawing a
block of wood into almout any desired
shape. When his invention was com

changed his workman's apron for a

mansion. The other man what did

difficult undertaking of teaching a little

sided at the Cascades and was a crip
ple. He was not ho badly brok
sn up, however, but that he was still
able to furnish bad whisky to the poor
Indians who would get beastly drunk
and raise particular Sheol on the shoals
of the Columbia. Billy was over
hauled and brought to Portland and
paid a fine. He went hack again a
wiser man, supposedly, yet a short
time ago he wss again caught, and the
austere Judge sent the festive William
to the Ten for a year. Tho second day
after ho entered his new secluded life,
he fell heir to 1 10,000 in gold while
his father was enriched to tho tune of
175,000. Alas poor William, with
that amount of wealth in hank and so
much able bodied mirth floating around
waiting to be taught by just such fel
lows, it must be hard indeed.
In a recent article in the North
American Review Dorinan B. Eaton
shows that the classified service for
which competiva examinations are
required, includes 5,650 places in the
departments, 5,600 in the postal ser
vice, or nearly half the whole number
of postal clerks and carriers, and
2,700 in the customs service, or five
sevenths of tho cuntom officials; making
a total of 13,950. Since July 16,
1883, when the system went into
operation, more than 11,000 persons
have been examined in diiluront parts
of tho country, and from those who
rank highest upwards of 2,600 have
Inen appointed. The average age of
applicants was thirty years. Out of
5,556 whose records are complete,
3,920 received their only education in
the common schools, w hile but 449 had
been educated in college. These facts
dispone of certain foolish sneers. Col
lege graduates do not appear to be
crowding into the service. The sue
coHttful contestants hnvn been divided
about equally lietween the great politi
cal parties, and this result demonstrates
the fairness of the system.

Tbi CbiGfit Language.
A language which has onl some
400 and odd distinct sounds with which
to express 10,C00 words would appear
at first sight to be a very anomalous
condition. And as a matter of fact,
many of these words are synonomous
although by an ingenious system of in
flection of the voice tho number of sep
arate sounds to a Chinese ear, at
least is morn than trebled. These in
flections aro the tonesr In Feking
there are only four of them; but in the
south those who are knowing in such
matters declaro there are twelve or
more. It is obvious that where the
sense of a word depends on such a nice
distinction as the tone of the voice in
which it is uttered, the opportunities
for making blunders become boundless,

faula, Alabama, i; one hundred and
three years old. His present wife is
fifty years old, he having married her
when she was a "gal," as he expressed
it. She is his ninth wife, and, in
reply to the question of hoar many
children he had, he said he had been
accused of having one hundred and
seventeen and it was not for him to
dispute it. Last year ha cultivated
twenty acres of land and raised an
abundance of peas, corn and potatoes.
This year he is cultivating cotton. H

he has been for the past eleven years.
He labors during the week and

Horace W. Ogilbie has finished the
survey of the Oregoniun Railway Co.,
limited, to Dundee, The distance as
surveyed is 2Gi miles to South Fort
land and is 28 miles to the heart of the
city. This is orin mile shorter than
was expected. The lino as surveyed
will pass through Elk Rock through a
tunnel 180 feel long. This rock is
situated 5 miles south of Portland,
near the White House. It rises per
pendicular to a heiuht of 350 feet, and
its lase is submerged by 90 feet of the
Willamette river. It is the intention
to commence work on ar.d finish tho
tunnel this winter, and push the road
to completion in the spring. .
The most sagacious sheep in North
Carolina is an old ram that belongs to
J. A. Adoock, in Sandy creek town
ship. He cannot only distinguish the
persimmon trees from trees of other
growth in the pasture, but has learned
to get the fruit down from thorn. This
he does by buttiug the tree. He gets
off a suitable distance, stands on his
hind legs, as if in the position of fight-
ng, and strikes the tree a vigorous
blow with his head. When he hs
shaken the persimmons off he quietly
eats them and goes on his way until
his appetite demands more. This wise
old ram used to rob the apple trees in
the same way.
