THE GRANT COUNTf tlEE
December Jp IS 00.
The fact tlint sixty ur c?cnt of
the Bcnmoii, of the V. S. navy,
nrc foreigners, is not to bo deplor
ed when we consider tho tendencies,
of ft life in the nnvnl urviec, and
its elfect to disqualify men for
Latest advices from l'inu Kidge
agency Nebraska, arc to tho elfect
that the Indians continue to bring
in their Bqtmw and childron,
which is taken as a sure iu by
the army H:op!e that there will bu
no lighting at that point.
Tho Idaho legislature will ti.sk
congross to give ami grant the
arid lands in that state to thu
people to aid them in its irrigation.
It is claimed that they benefit no
one in their present condition, and
for this reason it is thought con
gress will not hesitate to turn
tiicm over to the people.
Attorney-Cicncral filler has
furnished PostmnHtor. (Soncral
Wanamaker with an opinion to
the elfect that guessing contests
aro not illegal under the lottery
laws. This will have a depressing
influence on the spirits of .Mr.
"Wanamaker's zcalotiB subordinates,
but they can comfort themselves
with tho reflection that tho church
fair is always with them.
The Kansas farmer- wjio was
elected a district judge will take
a sixty days' course at Ann Arbor
University to fit himself for the
bench. It used to bo considered
that, bcsiilo an elementary legal
education, it required tlie"lnRnbni
tions of twenty years" to make a
man a judge; lint tho Farmers'
Alliance of Kansas has quashed
all that old fashioned nonsense.
Kinncror William of Germany
is progressive, and his recommen
dation for the more extended into
of machinery in agriculture should
cause the maniifactureros of this
country to feel jubilant. All tho
great machines which have done
so much for the farmer all over
tho world were invented and are
manufactured in this country.
Tho active interests which the
Kmporor "William has taken in the
welfare of his subjects is worth
lnilliousof dollars to this country.
Vast and diversified aro the
material resources of Oregon.
Iloundless the opportunities pre
sented here for the profitablo cm
ploynicnt of capital and labor.
All our leading homo pursuits are
destined to undergo early and
rapid expansion. Tliero can bo
no doubt of this. Wo have
already entered on this the stage
of our second growth. Hut on
nonu of these domestic industries
does tliero await such phenomenal
growth as that reserved for the
business of quart mining. It is
the ono thing in which we have
the raw material without stint,
unexampled facilities for its pros
ecution and that cannot bo over
done. The question of free coinage of
silver is going to make a ruinpuc
in congress and tho general im
pression is that it will be adopted,
although it is still opjwsed by Mr.
Harrison and his Secretary of the
Treasury. Hut it is whispered
that Mr. lUaino has mado up his
mind to bring about frco coinage
at this session of Congress as a
special concession to tho Farmers'
Alliance, which ho is said to bo
particularly anxious to conciliate.
There will not be much dillieulty
in getting a bill through Congress,
us the Senato is already on record
as favoring it, and it was charged
that it was trickery that defeated
it in the House at tho last session.
Tho question of tho head of tho
next republican Presidential ticket
will bo considered this winter by
tho leaders of that paity, and tho
wirepulling they will indulge in
will add much interest to Washing
ton political gossip. Just now
Air. Hlaino has it all his own way,
but weather he can keep it that
way, ovon ir he desires the nomi
nation, is problematical. Mr.
Harrison thinks himself entitled
to a renoinination; Senator Slier
man has not abandoned all hope;
General Alger is still in the field,
and from tho Pacific Slope comes
the news that Senator Stanford
lias entered the lists and that his
platform will consist solely of his
proposition to loan out govern
ment money farmers at ii per cent
per annum. It has also been
strongly hinted by Farmers' Alii
anco men that iMr. Stanford win
lmvo the support of that organiza
tion if ho wantB it. Tako it all in
all, the jirospcct is for lots of very
lively political news this winter.

narrated in the Horn Magaalwe:
1 was tired of waahing dlahnat 1 was
lired of drudgery. I had always been
to, and I w disaaOafled. I never sat
down a moment to read that Jamie
didn't want a cake, or a bit of par' v

bubble. "1 d rather le lu prl.n. ' I
said one day, "lhan have my life toad

and presently rang out that metallic
croup cough. I never hoar that hymn
since that it doesn't cut me to tot heart,
for the croup cough ring out with it
Ho grew worse toward night, when my
bunband came homo and went for a
doctor. At first he seemed to help him,
but it merged into tnltammatory croup,
and was soon over.

said tho doctor.
