YELLOW STONE COl.VTKV.
From the Uintah, mountains Prof.
Greigie fount his way North into the
Yellowstone country, and examined
the fading traces of volcanic action.
The volcanos seemed in that region to
have confined themselves very much to
the valleys. The heights on either
hand consisted of crystalline rocks; the
bottom of the valley had been laterally
deluged -with sheets of lava. These
were examined with"considerable care.
In the course of the examination, huge
mounds of gravel and stones were met
with, which, at the first glance, were
evidently moraines. The first was
marked by a huge block of rock, an er
ratic of coarse granite, different from
the rocks round about Such blocks
he found to increase in number as he
went up the valley; and on entering
the second canyon, or gorge, he found
the sides exquisitely glaciated. It was
clear, therefore, that not only was this
second canyon old ; it was older than
the glacial period ; it supplied a chan
nel for the glacier that ground its way
out of these mountains.
Endeavoring to estimate the mini
mum thickness of the ice, he traced
strias up to 1,000 feet, and they evi
dently went higher than that But in
going further up the valley, he found
that the erratic blocks of granite and
gneiss dropped by the glacier as it
melted went far above the 1,000-ft
limit; he got them on the shoulder of
one of the great hills overlooking the
valley 1,600 or 1,700 feet above the
bottom of the valley; the ice, therefore
must have been 1,600 or 1,700 feet
thick. It thus appeared that not on
ly did those mountains possess glaciers,
but somo of these were of such thick
ness as to deserve the name of ice-sheets
covering the whole surrounding region.
As to the volcanic phenomena of the
district, he saw evidence separated by
prolonged intervals, during which the

lavas, the sewer lava? filling up the
hollows eroded by the river. In the
grand canon of the Yellowstone, he
saw the most marvelous piece of min
eral color anywhere to be seen in the
world. It was cut out of tuffs of lavas
showing sulphur yellow, green, Vermil
lion, crimson, and orange tints, so mar
vellous that it was impossible to trans
fer them to paper. Prof. Geikle'a lec

So Christmas dawned upon us, and
all the world was rejoicing, and tie
jolliest portion of it was wrapped up
warmly and shooting about under the
stars to the music of sleigh-bells. Lit
tle they carpd for the sorrows of others;
yet scarce any could be so hard-hearted
as to refuse a tear for the sad tale I
have to tell. It seems that the night
before Christmas an industrious man,
who worked at a furniture establish
ment here in Portland, but whose home
was over on Sandy, 25 miles away,
made Christmas purchases for his wife
and children and started homeward
afoot. It was a long walk, but he
thought it would be more comfortable
to walk and keep warm. He did not
reach home and the next morning was
found, with all his Christmas gifts up
on him, lying dead in the snow within
two miles of his home and waiting
ones. What a sad Christmas that
must have been. He probably under
took to go home through the woods
the nearest way and got lost and so
perished. There is something sadly
pathetic at such a death, such a desola
tion as must have come over the house
hold so suddenly and so terribly be
reaved. But the father died with
Christmas in his heart, and there must
be a pleasing remembrance in their
hearts of one whose last act was a
thought and deed of holiday kindness
for those who waited for him at home.
Portland Cor. "Record-Union."
The term "Badger," applied to the
people and State of Wisconsin, arose in
a singular way. In the lead regions,
in early times, there were two classes
of miners those who remained at
the mines the year round, and those
who came up from Illinois to operate
only during the summer. The perma
nent residents were accustomed to dig
burrows in the hillside, where they
cooked andslept, while the Illinois it
inerants lived in pits. The residents,
therefore, wero called "Badgers" on ac
count of of their burrows, and the II
liuoi&ans "Suckers," because their mi
gration coincided in time with that of
the suckers of the river, which appear
ed in the Spring and went away in the
Fall. Both of these, names have stuck
and are now in general use.
Breeders of domestic animals should
make it a rule at all times to breed up
their stock that is, to keep it on the
improvement Every cross should be
for the better. This idea can be carried
into practice most certainly and eco
nomically by the exclusive use of thor
oughbred sires. It is a well-known
rule in breeding that the sirn is more
potent in establishing the characteris
tics of the offspring than the dam.
This is more certainly so if the sire be
a thoroughbred and the dam a cold
blooded animal, or part cold-blooded.
The first cross between a cold-blood
and a thoroughbred produces a half
breed. Sometimes these half-breees
have almost all the characteristics, ap
parently, of thoroughbreds, and farm
ers are so well pleased with their first
effort that, if it be a male, they are in
duced to stop their breeding up right
there and use the half-breed as a sire.
We care not h'ow fine in appearance a
half-breed may be, he is after all but a
half-breed, and his get with a cold
blood can only be a quarter breed.
With such a sire the cold blooded dam
is very likely to have the most potency
in shaping the characteristics of the
progeny; so that, in all probability,
more will be lost in the second cross
than has been gained in the first. On
the other hand, a cross has been gained
in the first In the other hand, across
of a thoroughbred with a half-breed
produces a three-quarter-blood, and
thus, by continuing to use a thorough
bred sire with the progency of a thor
oughbred, the process is continually up
ward, or towards the thoroughbred.
Breeders of horses and cattle, if their
aim be improvement should use only
thoroughbred sires. "Record-Uiion."

of health and strength, yet, if one of
them receives a serious injury, it is
nearly always necessary to amputate,
in order to give him the most distant
chance of life. The draymen have
the unlimited privilege of tho brewery
cellar. Sir Ashley Cooper was called
to a drayman. He was a powerful,
fresh-colored, healthy-looking man,
who had suffered an injury in his fing
er, from a small splinter of a stave,
the wound, though trifling, suppurated.
He opened the small abject with his
lancet He found on retiring, he had
left his lancet Returning for it, he
found the man in a dying condition.
The man died in a short time. Dr.
Gordon says: "The moment beer-
drinkers are attacked with acute dis
eases, they are not able to bear deple
tion, and die. Dr. Edwards says of
beer-drinkers: "Their diseases are al
ways of a dangerous character, and, in
case of accident, they can never under
take even the most trilling operations
with tho security of the temperate.
They most invaribly die under it."
Dr. Buchan says: "Malt liquors ren
der the blood sizy and unfit for circula
tion; hence produces obstructions and
infiamation of the lungs. There are
few great beer-drinkers who are not
phthisical, brought on by the glutinous
and indigestable nature of ale and por
ter. These liquors inflame the
blood and tear the tender vessels of the
lungs to pieces." Dr. Maxon says:
"Intoxicating drinks, whether taken in
the form of fermented or distilled
liquors, are a frequent predisposing
cause of disease." W. Hargreaves,
From what wo know of our own
personal knowledge, and that which we
gather from others, we are convinced
that no country excells Oregon in the
production of the several varieties of
roots, and certainly there is no crop so
much neglected and none that is so
profitable. Many prefer the Swede
or rutabaga turnips to almost any other
kind forstock. Our experience, how
ever, is decidedly in favor of the Eng
lish beet or yellow globe mangolds or
the sugar beet. We saw on exhibi
tion at the recent Mechanics' fair beets
of three varieties that yielded from 50
to 60 tons per acre. There is no food
so profitable for cows, sheep, or for
stock hogs, and yet but few farmers
seem inclined to adopt this production
as a necessary crop. "Resources of

A. O. U. Wi
There having been organized recently
in this city a Lodge of Ancient Order
of United Workmen, and many of our
readers having become interested in the
organization, sufficiently to desire
better knowledge of the objects sought
to be accomplished by the order, wo
have endeavored to obtain from its
members sufficient knowledge to justify
us in giving to our readers a brief syn
opsis of the objects of the order, vis
The order has been in existence .for
about eleven years, and has made rap
id progress during that time, and now
has lodges in thirty-three States and
Territories numbering a little over 80,
000 in membership. Ten States have
been sat apart as separate financial
jurisdictions, which leaves twenty-three
under the jurisdiction of the Supreme
Lodge. In the order you receive equal
protection in sickness and at death.
By the constitution there is no provis
ion for sick benefits, but a lodge may
in its by-laws constitute one. In this
order you not only obtain benefit dur
ing life, but at death your wife, chil
dren or any person you may designate
will obtain the sum of 2,000. Poli
cies of this kind are exempt from exe
cution, therefore the amount is sure to
go to the person to whom it is bequeath
ed. The initiation fees, including
medical examination, 13, nnd the
monthly dues are fifty cents, and the
assessments to pay death policies has so
far amounted to about SI 5 per year, or
S1.25 per month. These assessments
and dues distributed through the year
fall lightly upon each member, and
adapt the order to the wants of the
masses, more particularly to the labor
ing class, nnd renders the payments no
hardship to those in most humble fi
nancial circumstances. The order is
composed of men of every class of in
dustry. Most of the prominent men
of Portland, Salem, and Qther jiTomU
nut eiii-. C nor --. nnna, -
members. This feature alone commends
it to all. In Portland there are threo
Lodges, and in Salem there are two.
Outside of the financial benefits of
the order, the moral teachings are of
tho highest grade, and the brightest
form of Christian belief. In most Life
Insurance companies there are avcnucB
left for those in the lead to swindle,
while in this there is no possible show
for swindling. There is no officer
holding, or managing the finances of
the order who is not under heavy
bonds, and who is so guarded as to avoid
all liabilities of swindling.
The Grand Lodge of Oregon and
Washington was instituted March 4th,
1879, and in the nine months in which
the Lodge has been in full force, there
have been two deaths in this jurisdic
tion. Those two are A. L. Stinson of
Salem, and W. M. Evans of Portland.
A medical examination for admission
is required under such rules as general
ly adopted by life insurance companies.
The character of the applicant must ba
investigated, and tho lodge pass upon
his application by ballot. Persons be
tween the ages of twenty-one and fifty
are only admitted. The A. O. U. W.
is strictly a Business Institution. It
dispenses benevolcnco in a practical,
business like manner, conducting all
its financial matters with as much
strictness nnd system as does a bank.
The business features of the order re
quiring promptness and liability on tho
part of the members, have tho effect to
slough off all careless and improvident
material, so that the order maj safely
challenge comparison in the quality of
its membership, with that of any other
organization in existence. Its councils
are guided by somo of the wisest and
most eminent men of the State and Na
tion. It is believed that no other or
ganization, during so brief a period of
existence, has ever gathered to itself
so much talent and real moral worth.
The order has already paid to families
of deceased members over two millions
of dollars and will doubtless have a
membership of one hundred and fifty
thousand before January first 1881.
Between the first five and twenty
years, as a general rule, the character
is determined for life. The young sel
dom realize the importance of this for
mative period, and how much their fu
ture success depends upon the utiliza
tion of their present opportunities. In
tho trying scenes of after years, what
will be your character and reputation
if you are now seen hanging around
saloons, drinking, smoking, indulging
in profane and indecent language, and
frittering away tho golden hours of
youth? A cultivated mind and sym
metrical character are perpetual letters
of recommendation and within tho
reach of nearly all the youth in our fa
vored land. Will you secure them
