Edward, aged 3J, asked for more
cookies. "Have you an appetite, Ed
ward?" says his father. Edward, re
flecting that if he answered "yes" he
will be given graham bread, and that
if he says, "no" he will be told he
doesn't need anything more, replied to
Eis father (a minister,) "well, pa, God
has given me an appetite for cookies
and not for qraham bread."
Sixteen years ago Gen. Garfield
stood face to face with a furious mob
that surged through the streets of New
York excited almost to madness by the
dreadful news of the assassination of
Lincoln, and cried out with sublime
faith and thrilling power. "Fellow
citizens, clouds and darkness are round
about Him; righteousness and judg
ment are the habitation of his throne;
his pavilion round about him are dark
waters and thick clouds" of tho skies.
Fellow citizens, God reigns, and the
Government of Washington still lives!"
Tho American Consul at Aix-la-Chapelle
estimates that two hundred
thousand emigrants will leave Germany
for the United States during tho pres
ent year. Political economists estimate
the value of emigrants at $1,000 each.
At this rate Germany will contribute
$200,000,000 to tho wealth of this
country through the muscle and skill
of her immigrants, besides which it is
probable they will bring an average of
$70 each, or an aggregate of $14,000,
000 in money.
The Richmond Christian Advocate
says: The "Dunkards" have just closed
their annual convocation, held this
j'car at Ashland, Ohio. One of the
exciting questions before the body was
the relief of the sisters in tho matter
of the old-fashioned Quaker bonnet.
It was moved by some kind hearted
brother that "they be allowed to wear
a plain hat." One delegate who evi
dently had studied the subject, said:
"If these sisters are allowed to wear
a plain hat, before we know it there
will be a feather in it." That settled
the business. The old bonnet still
Dr. J. R. Page, of Baltimore, in the
New York Medical Record, May 7,
1881, invites the attention of the pro

On the 4th of August, 1763, Thomas
and Richard Penn and Lord Baltimore,
being together in London, agreed with
Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon,
two surveyors, to mark, run and settle
and fix the boundary line between
Maryland on one hand and Delaware
and Pennsylvania on the other. Ihey
accomplished their work to within
thirty-six miles, six chains and fifty
links, when they were told by their
Indian escorts that it was the will of
tho Six Nations that the surveys
should cease, and they terminated ac
cordingly. " Mason died in Pennsylva
nia in 1787; Dixon died at Durham,
England, in 1777. And this was the
origin of Mason and Dixon's lino.
Mormonism has absolute control of
Utah, and holds the balance of power
in Idaho and Arizona, and menaces
Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming and
Montana. Polygamy is a foul system
of licentiousness practiced in the name
ot religion, hence hideous and revolt
ing. It should not be reasoned with,
but ought to be stamped out. There
is no territorial law of Utah against
adultery, lascivious cohabitation, seduc
lion or incest. The leaders of Mormon
ism, the great aDostles of lust, are
preaching the doctrine of polygamy
throughout the territory with renewed
vigor. Mormonism is hostile to our
institutions and disloyed to our Gov
ernment, declaring by its former Pres
ident, Brigham Young, that the poli
tico ecclesiastical government of the
Mormon Church "circumscribes the
governments of this world," and again
declaring by the chief of its 12 apos
tles, "that all other governments are
unauthorized and illegal, while any
people attempting to govern them
selves by laws of their own making
and officers of their own appointing
are in direct rebellion against the king
dom of God." Mormonism nullifies
the laws of the land, controls elections,
and protects its followers in the com
mission of the most heinous crimes.
Mormonism teaches that any crime
may become a virtue if it is only done
fer Christs sake.

Last Saturday a steamship line to
run between Portland and 'China and
Japan, was incorporated in Portland,
to be known as: "The Oregon and
Chinese Mercantile Company," with a
capital stock of only $40,0001 From
the articles of incorporation, ten in
number, it would appear that this
company, be side engaging in the car
rying trade, proposes to enter largely
into the mercantile business, that is,
of buying and selling anything of a
merchantable nature, at wholesale or
retail, and at such places as may be
deemed fit and convenient; to purchase
and employ vessels and ships of all
kinds to run to and from any port or
places in the world, etc. The articles
of incorporation are published entire
in the Oregonian of last Monday, and
if the various objects mentioned in
them should ever bo carried into effect
no doubt a corporation of vast powers
will grow out of it. Our San Fran
cisco brethren are some what miffed at
the amazing audacity of Portland for
putting on metropolitan airs and for
wanting to establish a direct steamship
line to China, and possibly wrest a por
tion of the tea trade from S. F. It
is said that the new company will soon
develop into a full fledged ocean steam
ship line, speedily to be placed under
the protecting wings of Henry Villard.
But Mr. Villard, when asked about
the matter of establishing a steamship
line to China the other day was non
committal and evasive, probably for
the reason that ho was not ready to
talk. A Dakota paper reports the
following interview with him:
"Do you propose putting on a line
of steamships for the China and Japan
"I am now running eight ocean
steamships over there."
"But these are running from Port
land to San Francisco."
"That is true; but they are large
enough to run to China and Japan, if
necessary. Let me say to you one
thing in this connection, however: We
don't want a pound of tea from China
or Japan. The business we will get
in Oregon, Washington Territory and
the Pacific coast generally, will bo am
ply sufficient to keep the road busy
for the next ten years."
rrenldznt Garfield's Case.
On the forenoon of August 8th the
President was placed under the influ
ence of ether and an incision to facili
tate the escape of puss was made. The
incision extended downward and for-
mat it was not a difficult or danger
ous one and the patient bore both it
and the etherization extremely well.
There is now an opening to the deeper
parts of the wound which does not pass
between the ribs and which can always
be kept free and unobstructed, and no
further trouble from accumulation of
puss is anticipated. His pulse rose to
108, temperature 102, respiration 20.
It seems whenever the flow of puss is
checkid the President's condition grows
worse. Previous to this operation his
symptoms became complicated, but
since this operation he is again im
proving. Since the recent apparent relapse
and surgical operation the President
has improved far more rapidly than
expected. The bulletins of the doctors
in attendance at the White House, up
to the 11th, a"re of the most assuring
Vfnson Itoart to the Coast.
W. J. Wimer, one of the well to-do
miners and business men of Waldo,
came up on Monday. He says Mr.
Gasquet started in with 20 Chinamen
to work on the wagon road grade be
tween Waldo and tho California line
with J. P. Knight as superintendent
of the gang. Twenty additional China
men were in readiness to be placed on
another section of the road. Mr.
Wimer says, Gasquet is determined to
push the construction of the road with
all the energy at his command, and he
hopes that the people of Jackson county
will come up manufully with their
promised aid. The road should be
ready for wagons to pass over it by
the middle of May next.
What if the main line of the O. t C.
Railroad does run 35 miles to the west
of us (Wilderville, Waldo, the coast to
Clorerdale), Jacksonville is going to
be happy any how. Th PnrH-.,,
Standard of August 10th is our au
thority for saying that Jacksonville is
going to fare one better. The Stan
dard speaking of the surveying party
that left Portland on the 8th inst. to
locate the road from Roseburg to Go
verdale says: "Although Jacksonville
will not be a railroad station by the
new appearance of things, we are in
formed that it will fare eyen better; by
being made a terminus, as a branch
road will be constructed from the
most practicable point on the O. A- f!
J Railroad to that important centre."

The July number of the West Shore
has an exhaustive article on tea cul
ture, showing the manner of growing
and curing the leaves of this much
used plant. Tho writer contends that
the soil and climate of Jackson, Doug
las and Josephine counties are admira
bly adapted for its culture and urges
our planters to give this industry a
fair trial. Seeds can be obtained free
of charge from the U. S. Agricultural
Department through our representa
tive at Washington.
The best location for a tea garden is
a fertile hillside with a southern ex
posure, such as are found in the vallies
of all the creeks emptying into the
main Roguo river. A rich sandy
loam in the vicinity of some small
cre?k if the land is not subject to over
flow will also make a fine tea garden.
Seeds should be planted in a hot bed
or cold frame about December, and in
early spring plants will bo ready to set
out. Before planting the land should
be deeply plowed and thoroughly pul
verized by repeated harrowing and
checked off into squares 4 by 4 feet:
By April or May when the plants.will
be about 12 inches high, they should
be carefully moved from the frame
with a ball of earth attached so as not
to expose the roots to the sun and one
planted in each corner of the check,
using for the purpose an ordinary gar
den trowel. In the early stage of the
growth of tho plant shading with pine
branches will be found advantageous.
After the first year the plant supplies
its own shade.
Parties wishing to engage in tea
culture had better send for the July
number of the West Shorse, L. Sam
uel, Portland, publisher. Single copies
are sold at 25 cents. This number
furnishes the details of planting, tend
ing, curing and preparing for market.
What a Raving to our people it would
bo if we would raise enough tea to
supply even our home market? Let
some one start in.
Some days ago the ratification of
the Chinese treaties was exchanged at
Peking that is to say, our Minister
presented copies of the treaties ratified
by the Chinese Government. This is
the last step in the formalities usually
observed in the making of treaties.
