Be a Woman.
Oft I've heard a gentle mother,
As the twilight hours began,
Pleading with a son on duty,
Urging him to be a man.
Jjut unto her blue-eyed daughter,
Tho' with love's words quite as ready,
Points she out the other duty
' Strive, my dear, to be a lady."
AVhal's a lady Is it something
Ma'ue of hoop?, and silks, and airs ;
CJJsed to decorate the parlor,
G Like the fancy rings and chairs ?
Is it one that wastes on novels
Every feeling that is human ?
O If 'tis this to be a lady,
'Ti5 not this to be a woman.
Mother; then unto your daughter
Speak of something higher far
O q Than to be mere fashion's lady
Woman is the brightest star.
If ye, in your strong affection,
Urge your son to bo a true man,
Urge your daughter no less strongly
To arise and be a woman.
Yes, a woman brightest model
Of that high and perfect beauty,
Where the mind, and soul, and body,
Blend to workout life's great duty.
O Be a woman naught is higher
On the gilded list of fame;
On the catalogue of virtue
There's no brighter, holier name.
Be a woman ou to duty
O Raise the world from all that's low,
Place high in the social heaven,
Virtue's fair and radiant bow !
Lend thy influeucc to each effort
That shsH raise our nature human ;
Be not fashion's gilded lacy,
Bt a brave, whole-souled true woman.

y commencement and long contin
uance of tho rains of the past fall
and winter, which prevented the
fanner from preparing and seeding
his ground, as the reason. Others
declare that their is no use of thow
iriT away labor to produce wheat,
when there is so large a quantity
On hand and the price of (lour so
nominal why not wait until the
scarcity increases the price ? The
latter argument or suggestion is not
original with Southern Oregon, it
having had its origin in the Web
fuot district, located far north of
this, and, peihaps, as fine a grain
growing country as can be found
on tho Pacific slope ; yet from its
earliest settlement it has been the
generul custom of the farmers and
settlers to abstain trom trie pro
ductions of any of the necessaries
of consumption, until the price would
justify a full compensation for the
labor required to produce or ob-
tain the commodity ; hence, in many
::ucs, the fanner turned his grain
fields into pastures, because he could
not realize a price for wheat aud
other products ; the stock raiser
oven ceased to make butter, for his
own family's use, and turned his
cattle all out to run wild together,
lus depending upon the growth and
.he increase of his stock for a support
9ind income ; and in many cases the
farmer has been compelled to ship
his flour, potatoes and cftbbage from
California the stock raiser his but
ter and cheese, evvhen, in fact, he
owned from 50 to 100 milch cows.
This is no romance but a simple
statement of stubborn facts. Our
advice to the farmers of Southern
Oregon fs, not to be deterred from
producing your regular annual crops
on account of loio vrlces. A market
may bo found when you have your
granaries full to overflowing, which
will add much to your wealth and
prosperity, and a regular low pnco

HOW TO DETECT CoPPEli IS PlCK
LE3. A writer gives the following
simple aud easy method to ascertain
if pickles contain any portion of
The test is made by simply thrust
ing a bright needle into a pickle
and al lowing it to remain there for
several hours. If there is any copper
present it will be deposited on the
needle, giving it the characteristic
red eoIor of the metal. From one
specimen of pickles, which were
warranted not to contain any copper,
a heavy deposit of the metal was
obtained by this test within six
hours. The copper is present as an
acetate, and may come from boiU
ing the vinegar or pickles in a brass
for copper boiler that has been al
lowed to become coated with the
acetate of copper, or verdigris. Some
manufacturers have been known to
usa this pigment in the manufacture
of pickles, to produce the fine por
manetij gr&en color which by some
is thought to be so desirable in this
O article of diet. It may be taken as
a rule that pickles with a perma
nent greeh color contain copper.
The test is the needle, and any one
can trv it.
Influence of wooded Districts on
the Descent of Rain. M. Becqnerel
and his son have laid before the
French Academy the results of sever
al observations conducted in the
environment of Montargis. They
conclude that wooded districts draw
down a l irgtr amount of rain than
plains. Remembering the fact that
when the clouds approach a mountain,
or even a simple-hill, they ascend and
then meeting a colder stratum of air
become converted into rain, one is led
to think that lofty woods may have
the same effect. "This view the auth
O ors tested by establishing five observ
atories in the district named, cf the
rainfall. They found that far more
falls in the wooded than in the un
Why Orchards Deteriorate.
Fruit trees, like every thing else whose
sustenance is derived from the earth,
are subject to decay, but by improper
management they are often killed
before their natural productive power
is half exhausted. This is not the
fault of the variety planted, the local
ity, nor the severity of the weather,
except in rare instances, but of those
who have the care and culture of
them. The trouble generally arises
from tho want of thought or the.
cupidity of the owner. He plants an
orchard, the trees perhaps twenty feet
apart. In a few years, if they grow
well, their branches will cover a large
portion of the intervening space. But
some ground is still unshaded, an
orchardist thinks it is a pity that thi
should lie waste. The plow is intro
duced, and whatis the result? Simply
this, hundreds and hundreds of the
small fibres, reaching out from the
main toots in search of sustenance for
the trunk, are severed; their absorbing
aud conducting power is destroyed,
and the trees and branches, sustained
by their active functions, wither; it
ceases to yield its wanted burden of
fruit, and, after a few years of languid
life, permaturely does.
Ihe truth is, the farmer asks too
much of his soil; wants it to impart
vigor and fruitfulness to from fifty to
eighty trees to the acre, oesides giving
hicn a crop of corn and potatoes an
nually. To secure tho last he cuts
the thousands of fibres of his trees
with the plow, and then' wonders why
his orchard decays and dies prema-.
turely! This is bad policy and poor
practice. Do not ask too much from
the soil. Give it a chance to nourish
and sustain one product to a full
development, rr.iher than by a
multiplication of them, to secure
stinted sa moles cf immature ones.
The earth, properly manured and
tilled, is munificent in its gifo to
man, but when over tasV.cJ by a
multiplicity of exactions its response
to his labors will be feeble and unsat
isfactory. Rural New Yorker.
Pretty Good. The Press of Jack
sonville tells the following :
A certain professional gent in town,
who has turned his attention to
horticulture, for the benefit of his
health and as a means of recreation,
went into one of our stores a day
or two ago to purchase some seed
peas. The peas were delivered and
the Prof, departed ; in a little while,
however, he returned, terribly indig
nant, and berated the storekeeper
soundly for imposing on him by
selling him peas that were full of
worms. As most of our readers are
aware, a sort of grub infests all
dried peas in this valley, but that
dots not impair their virtue for
seeding. When this explanation
was made to our professional friend,
he appeared to be satisfied, but
feL anything but proud of the huge
"mare's nest" he had dicovered.
Playing Cards. Cards- were in
vented in 1391 by Jaccmemin Grun
genumour, to amuse King Henry
YI., of France, who at that time
was mad. The ace was made the
best card in the pack, being deriv
ed from the French word "Argent,"
signifying the money, and to show ihat
a king could not get along without
it, as a menial cvd backed by the
aee would triumph over a king. The
kings were called David, Alexander,
Qcsar and Charlemagne ; the queens
were named Argine, Rachel, Palles,
and Judith; the varlets or knaves
represented the squires to the kings,
and were named Launcelot, Ogier,
Renard, and Hector ; tens, nines, &e.,
represented the' foot soldiers'. The
ace of clubs was bo named and form
ed to represent a clover leaf, and to
signify to the king that a good
general would encamp his army
where pasturage was plenty. The
ace of spades represented the haU
berts carried by the foot soldiers ;
the ace of diamonds represented the
heads of the arrows used by cross-
bowmen, and the ace of hearts
represented the courage of the knight
Deodorizers. The following arti
cles are easily available for the sup
pression of noxious gasses, so fatal to
health and lif :
Two pounds of sulphate of iron
(coperas) dissolved in a pailful of
water, and poured into a vault, will
prevent the formation of sulpeuretted
hydrogen gas for some time, and wdl

One pound of nitrate of lead dis
solved in a pailful of water, is excel

If other things fail, chloride of
lime is always effectual, and may be

These substances are not expensive,
and will effectually destroy all the
offensive smells. The quantity to be
used will depend on tjhe quantity of
filth to be deodorized, and their per
manency of effect upon local condi
tions in each case.
Food and Warmth. It should

allowed to stand and shiver in the

amount of extra food to keep up

the Government has entered upon a a series
of works, which, with their garrison, will
involve the disbursement of millions of dol
lars. And, considering that this is the gate
to an interior country of three embryo States
besides Oregon, all glittering with veins of
gold and silver, no expense is likely to be
spared in guarding it. The travel and traffic
between that region and San Francisco is
already immense. It will never cease, nor
cease increasing. And there, at the gate,
will stand Astoria; and all the steamships
and river boats must come to her wharves
as they ply the ever increasing commerce of
five States. Three regular lines of steam
ships are now employed, and at certain sea

to Portland, in pursnance of a habit nat

the Willamette river, on which Portland is

The following extracts from a letter pub

made the tour of the Pacific States last sum

and impartial stranger:
Astoria, Oregon, Aro. 11th, ISStL
"I write trom this renowned place. As
toria stands upou the left bank of the Co
lumbia, ten miles from its final commingling
with the ocean. A narrow interval of level
ground, from tide to bluff, say two miles in
length bv two furlongs in width, affords, a
convenient and pleasant footing, for at pres
ent, about sev enty white buildings, including
custom house, court house, hotels, stores,
shops and dwellings. Several line dwellings
also stand high upon the hills in the rear,
enjoying a landscape in front of marvelous
beauty. Astoria enjoys a climate of remark
able salubrity. Diseases may exist, but I
hear nothing of them ; and tho atmosphere,
per fumed by the vast coniferous forests, or
purified by the expanse of the waters of. the
Pacific, brings only health and vigor to these
shores. Hence, it is a favorite resort for in
valids and tourists from the interior, in
search either of health or recreation. It is
occupied and controlled by a population

however, Portland is the nndor.bted metro
polis, a city located one bundled rrilos
this, not on the Columbia, but on its chief
niouiary, tne Willamette. This is an anom
aly yet readily explained. The valley of the
Willamette is by far the largest and best ag
ricultural district in the State, and Portland
is its mart ; while the region back of Asto
ria is yet forest, with only here and there a
small section subdued. For this good rea

inhabitants, while Portland has 8,000 ; and
for the other good reason, its commanding
position, this little citv is the only port of

FOUNTAIN OF LIFE!

IN EVERT PROGRESSIVE SCIENCE
periods arrive when a new direction is
imparted to its course. These epochs pro
ceed from discovery of new facts shedding
a light which changes the whole aspect of the
science. The present is an epoch of this
kind, and this great remedy now offered to
the public, in connection with the theory on
which it is based, is destined to effect an en
tire revolution in the treatment ot the dis

by eradicating the disease eutirelygfrom the
blood. The Fountain uf Life is composed
entirely of vegetable extracts; it contains no
mercury or other m neral substances.

what form the dreadful disease cf Scrouli

no way be more safely and certainly arrested
in its progress than by using Henley's Great

For Reference: I would refer you to L. L
