The bill prepared by Senator Sar
gent, authorizing the sale of certain
public timber lands, has been passed
by the Senate, almost insuring its be
coming a law. This bill provides that
any surveyed lands of California, Ore
gon and Washington Territory, not
reserved, and valuable chl< fly for tim
ber and unfit for cultivation, and
Oregon which have not been offered for sale,
may be sold in quantities not exceed
ing 1G0 acres to any one person or as
IS IN RECEIPT AND KEEPS CON- sociation at a minimum price of $2.50
1 stantlv <>n hand a lull and first-class as
per acre; and that lands chiefly valu
able for stone may be sold on the
same terms. Nothing in this act is to
impair any buna Ji de claim under any
United States law, or authorize the
LADIES & GENTS’ FURNISHING GOODS sale of any mining claim or mineral
I lands, or interfere with the rights of
ditch owners. Any person desiring to
buy such lands is to make very much
such an application and proof as to the
DRY-GOODS, CLOTHING, character of the lands and its being va
cant, etc., as in the ease of mining
land purchases. He is required to
subscribe to a stringent oath that he
buys for his own use and not for any
GLASSWARE, CROCKERY, CUTLERY, other
person. A provision Is made
lor hearing all adverse claimants.
Other sections of the bill make it un
lawful to cut or destroy any timber on
NUTS, CANDIES, FIGS, public lands with an intent to export
or dispose of it, under a penalty of a
fine not less than $100 nor more than
$1,000; but permission is given any
miner or agriculturist to take such

passage of the bill, and especially ol
the last section, without opposition,
was surprising, but was accounted for
by the fullness of Sargent’s explanation

California memorial on the subject re

Which will be sold at Lowest Rates.
A serious mistake is not taking
proper care of machinery purchased.
Take the country through, and more
is used up by neglect ami abuse than
by actual service. Another point on
which we may be well sensitive is that
farmers are not particular epoug+t in
learning how to use implements aftei
they are purchased. Anybody can
use a thing that will almost go alone,
but when repairs and a better ope-
operator is required, many lay them
aside and ortler new ones. To illus
trate: One of the first reapers owned
iu this vicinity was in use after other
farmers, who did not buy as soon,
with less acres to cut each year, had
worn out their second ones. It mere
ly belonged to a uian who would make
things work, and continued to do good
work with it until “extras” to replace
the parts worn out could no longer be
obtained. The same individual con-
structed a horse fork before patented
ones were known. It was meiely a
large fork made by a blacksmith, with
a lifting rope attached near the fork,
anil a cord attached near the end ol the
handle. In his hands this rude imple
ment was very effective until better
ones could be obtained. I have known
machines sol«l for a mere trifle to do
better work in new hands than the
new ones purchased to take their plac
es. The fault lies not so much in the
amount of the farm machinery made
ae the manner in which it used. While
it is always tho reverse of economy to
buy what ¡9 not actually needed, this
is especially true of expensive machin
ery. It is difficult to tell which error
is oftenest committed, buying too
largely (^ implements, or getting along
alter a Tashion without such as are
really necessary to profitable farming.
How W omen H ide their M oney .
—The ctwlotis ways women have of hid

“Mrs. Hansen put $30 in the oveu of
her stove one night to keep It safe.
Next morning after breakfast the na
tional debt had been reduced just that
much. A student of the curious would
find it interesting to note the place«
the women hhl# their money. One
excellent ar.d frugal dame used to tuck
her little savings away under a corner
of her carpet. The tiny roll of green
backs grew fatter in the course of a
year or two, when the day after it
counted $250 the house took Are, and
burned to the ground, anil again tha
national debt was diminished by a lit
tle roll of woman’s pin money. There
was that other careful lady, too, who
used sometimes to hide her diamond
rings between two tea-cups in Hu»
kitchen cupboard^ sometimes behind
a certain brick in tiie cellar, and again
under the lining of an old hat. She
had divers other places of safety for
her precious things, and about every
three months would fancy she had
been robbed, and the house would be
turned inside out and all therein tie
made uncomfortable until the missing
gems would be found carefully tucked
away in the folds of tho bottom towel
of the pile in the left baud corner of
the lower drawer in the clothes-press
at the end of the drawing-room.
T he S terling M ine .—By a letter
received from Southern Oregon, tho
Oregonian learns that the Sterling
mine is being worked to good advan
tage, and that the prospect is favorable.
Eighteen hundred inches of water are
running in the ditch, and it is believed
by the superintenduntof the mine that
there will be water enough to work
with a full head for two pipes until the
first of August. When the piping
commenced, about ten weeks ago, a
bed of boulders was struck which
threatened to retard the work. This
difficulty has been surmounted by tho
boulder-bed giving out, and the pipes
are now playing on a bank of splen
did gravel with a bedrock, which min
ers pronounce very promising. Hon.
D. P. Thompson, principal owner in
the mine, a short time ago sent out a
derrick to handle the boulders, but it
is no\v doubtful whether it will bo
needed. The dump for the tailings
in thia mine will increase as the
the work proceeds, and will in a short
