A Grateful Remembrance.
In the early part of the year a devot
ed mother and her consumptive attiicted
boy came here faun Roseburg, Oregon.
hoping that in the dry, pure climate of
this region her son, then nlxmt 22 years
old, would be saved to ber for some
time to come. The lady had means and
secured two comfortable rooms at the
Imperial Hotel, and daily, while the son
could stand the effort, she drove him in
the couutry herealiout. While retain
ing her rooms at the hotel the couple
lived in a tent on Duncan hill, and later
occupied similar accommodations in
lot on the wet side of the railroad
track. The lady has a pleasant, sunny
way about her. and nianv seeing her
sympathetic condition, extended that
comfort which a stranger is always glad
to receive from a goid heart. During
their habitation of the tent people in
the neighborhood would call and chat,
and while the lady would not show or
express anv desire for aid, a cake or
weet loaf of warm bread, or pot of ork
and beans, a dish of ice cream or some
other delicacy" would find its way to the
tent, aud it is safe to say that the kind
ness of the donors was more appreciated
than the substantial worth or pleasura
ble qualities of the sweetmeats.

Wants Timber Land Protection.
The coming session of the Legislature
of Oregon should devise some legislation
calculated to more fnllv protect timbe
of the state from serious conflagration
A suggestion has been made that a hill
be framed with a view of instituting
. .. ....
tire patrol under the direction ol the
sheriff of each county, the tax to main
Lain the patrol to be levied by a s ecial
tax on each distru-t where the jwtrol
desired. The owners of timlier land
would generally be very willing to jay a
tax of this nature. If it were practica
ble to iass a bill restricting the time for
lawfully burning a "slashing" from the
month of Octoler to the 1st of May
much danger of destroying the green
timber would lie averted. While tl
farmer comes in for a considerable share
of criticism in causing conflagrations,
is well to keen in mind that many log
gers are almost criminally careless' i
their met hols, and many serious fires
are attributable to their direct negli
gence. The farmers in the burned sec
lions of Oiegon and Washington iiav
practiably in the aggregate been the
heaviest losers Irv the recent conflagra
tions, hence their assistance in urgiu
the Legislature to pass remedial fire
legislation vhould be easily secured.
Kins Tended a Cow.
The King of Italy is one of the most

peasant woman, who was milking her
cow by her riadside cottage, for a glass
"I can't give yon this," said the
woman, not knowing who it was that

the cow I will fetch you one from the
The King joyously agreed, and mind

"They've all gone to catch a glimpse
of the King," she answered.
"Well, little mother, you can see him
now," replied the King, " and that, too,
without leaving your work."
At this she laughed, thinking this
democratic, sirnple-garlied stranger was
trying to jest with her. The King
laughed, too, as he saw how she deceived
herself. Then, pressing a coin into her
hand for the milk, he sauntered off.

the sentiment of the committer was
that the Legislature should appropriate
