Mary Francis Cubing, about 20 years
of age. living at Union Mills, Clacka
mas county, 'was brought to j this city
and taken to St. Vincent's Hospital for
treatment. About seven weeks :tgo
she gave birth to a child and immedi
ately afterwards Mrs. Cubing com
menced to act in such a manner as to
cnus- her husband and friends to believe
that she was sullering from a mild
form of dementia, and caused them
great uneasines3jy her sudden ftdiap
pearance fro.a home. On one occasion,
it. was after midnight before any trace
of her could be t jtind. Jn the hope
that a change would restore her to
peace and tranquility, she was brought
to St. Vincent's and placed under the
I carc ; nhu """""S '"S 1' thllfc
institution. She v.a,s laeed in the fe
unle ward, occupying Ited K . 5, and
for the j)ast twenty-one days has lain
in a tranc", h r intellectual powers and
sen-e of touch :r feeling haviijg been
emiivly suspended. 'JMie vital func

a ' ry sevt-iv i'ack of bruin lever, and J
j rtjdri when living at the Orphanage at
Vancouver, it is thouirht that she
uevi-r fully recovered from these attacks
and her pre.-ent condition i in a mens- j
ure thus accounted for. Dr. Jones,

Vincent's, ha charare or the case, and
both he and .1)-. Rex. who h also a
visiting physician at the hospital, are
making a study of it. Yesterday af
ternoon the woni'iu's face was n little
Hushed, but otherwise her condition is
the same as has been for twenty-one
davs. Portland Standard.
Overwork. Perhaps ihe overwork
cd man docs not perform an immense j
amount of labor.but he works after his j
strength has been reduced. This is like j
keeping a mill going when the water is
low. or when the water in the dam is j
nearly out. In the care oi the muscles,
avoids colds and rheumatisms. Thev i
make neorde stiff and lame. Thev take
away the natural ela'ticitv, which cives
so much pleasure, and substitute a
worn-out, tired, und exhausted feeling,
! which borders on pain, and is often
more difficult to bear. Plow very care
fnl the owner of a hoe horse is that it
shall not take cold ! Ho knows that if
j it does it will founder, and after this it
will never be a irood stepper. This
whole country is full of fouudered men
and women, who are stiff and lame,
rheumatic, old in feeling, inelastic.
As a rule, people do not bathe as much
as they should. The daily bathe is
W 1. &
; quite as important as any other duty.
: ft. requires but a few moments to take
it, and -when followed bv friction it
fortifies the skin airainst'cold.
What a Woman Can Do. As a
wife and mother, woman can make
the fortune and happiness of her hus
band and children, and, if she did
nothing else, surelv this would bestifii
ci :ut destiny. J3y her thrift, prudence
and tnct she can secure t her partner
and to herself a comnetencv in old age,
no matter how small a. beginning
or how adverse a fate may bo theirs.
Bv her ehecrfullness she can restore
her husband's spirit shaken by the
anxiety of business. ly her tjnder
care she can often rest re him to
health if disease has overtasked his
powers. Uy her counsel and lovj; she
can win him from bad company if temp
tation in an evil hour has led him astray.
By her examples, her precepts aid her
S'x's insight into chiractor she can mold
her children, however adverse their dis
position5, intT noble men and women.
Aral by, leading in all things a true and
beautiful life, she can refine, elevate and
spiritulize all who come within reach:
so that, with others of her ex emulating
and assisting her. she can do more to re
generate the world than all the states
men or reformers that ever legi lated.
She cat) do much, atas ! perhaps more to
degrade man if she chooses to do it.
Who can estimate the evils that woman
has the power to do ? As a wife she
can ruin horse1 f by extra vaganee. folly
or want of affection. She can m i:e. a
demon or an outcast of a man whytight
otherwise iMicome a good member of so.
cie'v. She can biing bickerings, strife
and discord into what has been a h tppy
home. She can change llo innocent
babes into vile men and even into vil
wencn. She can lower the moral ones
of cneirty itself, and thus pollute legisla
tion at the sprimr head. She can. in
fine, become an instrument of evil in stead
of an angel of good. Instead of
ma kin :r flowers of truth, purity, beauty
and spirituality snriuu up. in her foot
tupa. till the e;vth smiles with a Joveli
nes that is almost celestial, she can
transform it into a black and arid desert,
cove'ed with the so un of all evil passions
and swept bv the bitter blast of everlast
ing death. This h what woman can do
for the wrong a- well as for the riirht.
H her mission a little one lias she im
worthy work as ha5 1 ecome the cry of
hte I 3Ian may have a harder tisk to
perform, a rou:h mud to trael. but he
has none loftier or more influential than
woman's. London Journal.

prising men by the name of P. T. San
ders and d. (J llenriei left their homes
and took to the Blue .Mountains with
provisions and mining implements.
Alter weeks of privation and toil they
brought up at the noi th fork of dohn
Dav's river, about ten miles above
Texas Bar. Xow this stream tms been
inined more or less since 1805. and had
never thus far proved remunerative,
notwithstanding the gold ws worth IS
ami 10 dollars per ounce, every one who
had undertaken it had left sooner or
later in disgust. These men had tried
everywhere, and finally concluded as a
last resort; to go to the bedrock in one
of the numerous prospect holes on one
of the bars that had been abandoned
years ago they commenced and sunk
about six j'eet and struck bedrock, and
better yet. struck gold in paying quan
tities. After rocking out several dol
lars and satisfying themselves that the
mines were good, they came into the
county seatto record their claims and
purchase supplies. While here, they
informed Mr. J. ITathawav of their
luck and futureprospects, whose imagin
ation was soon wrought up to the high
est point. Dreaming nights, of untold
wealth lying buried in the solitude of
the Blue Mountains. It was too much

proceeded to make a personal examina
tion and now has returned and reports

the United States against Joseph H.
Brown, of Palouse City, for tresspass
I'tZ ujion the public lands and cutting
timhe-. timber was a jury ttial and the
case occupied two days. It was the
first case of this nature that has been
brought to trial in the territory and
therefore elicited more than uuusauai
attention. Tt was viewed by many as
a test eae, antl was watched with ordin
ary interest. The ease was ably proe-
outed and as ably defended, and after a
brief delay the jury gave a verdict for
Brown. There were indictments of a
similar kind aii'iinst Sexton and (J.idd
