Last summer, also, it was fashion
able here for the ladies of religious
and socio I standing to lead a so re
eved dog tied to a string, along their
daily walks in life. Today I see
them wheeling babies in their little
wagons. This struck mo so forcibly
that I asked a man of my acipiaiut
ance what was the reason the dogs
were not in it. lie recited the old
proverb thnt "every dog has his
day," and the dog days of the aris
tocratic city dogs are not the days
they used to bo. Formerly the
nurse was thought good enough to
take care of the babies of the bonne
hold, but the ludy of the house in
sisted on taking care of the dogs.
All kinds of dogs have ruled in
their tender hearts, and tho variety
of dogs is great. Hut there apM-ar
to be a painful monotony about
babies, and one cannot shear a baby
to resemble a lion, nor cut its ears
to make it look fierce. And again,
more than one baby in a family was
not considered "an fait," but the
more ntigs the letter.
Dogs, however, became common,
alinixil every family having one or 1
more, ami mku the ariMiMTacy ni
aUiul for something else to dote on.
A brilliant idea struck a leader of
fashion. She would do something
remarkable, and make a et uf her
child. The idea took like measles,

to be recherche and Knglish do
trop. Owing to a slight contraction
of the cornea or siderotic gland or
the trifolium folicle of my left eye,
I am deprived of the pleasure of
reading Ftench lluently, therefore
when I went to dine I sought eager
ly for Komcthiiig in the menu that
I could arbitrarily demand in the
noble but rapidly decaying Knglish
language. The only inscription
that fully met the plans and speci
fications was "Frogs a hi Potillet,
fl.UO." The price attached to this
luxurious dirih was ample assurance
that it was aristocratic in its nature,
and I, who al that moment felt no
thing but aristocratic, made a for
mal requisition ukjii thu congress
man, who waited liH)ii the table,
for a frog n la Potillet. As my re
lations with the frog had always
been of a most pleasant order I de
sired to further cultivate his ac
quaintance, and take him to my
liosom, so to sM-ak, literally. After
swallowing the frog and washing
him down with two goblet of ice
water I p'aced a silver dollar in the
baud of the congressman, who dis
apieared and is still at large. I at

Last week I tisik a trip to the wa-
coast north of Astoria, and wallow-

blow in with tho tide from the far
away Pacific isle. Thu treinend

fur rcllection (you will notice that
food for lellecliou at the seaside is
much chcucr than food for refec
tion). "Beautiful, sublime, and
glorious, strong, majestic, foaming
free. Over timu itself victorious
imago of eternity," is thu )HitIual
description given of the grnml old
ocean. It in ernnd indeed. And
they don't need any sea wrtwnt
liars to advertise Ion Bench, for
only n short time ago a whale was
branded and washed ashore at
high tide that measured IS
length, a sample oi wiiai our Tactile
waters can turn out. Bathers in
the surf were frightened when the
huge monster drifted in, each break
er bringing him higher upon the
beach, until finally the whnle strand
! ed. It was just at the turn of the
tide, and as the waters U-gan lo
recede there was general ama;cmcnt
at the huge proortions of the fish.
Ac. old Indian who has lived near
the ocean lcncli for many years
told me that large whales had come
ashore many years ago, but never
! had such a monster as this been
' seen. When I was at the lieach
I the whale had nearly all I icon re
moved, his blubU'r being ipiite
valuable. Therefore theeople who
; sought recreation did not have their
scum; of smell offended,

O. P. C'ltliSAP, Shurilf.
By W. S. Souruwoimi,
Iikk, Or., Aug. - I, ISfll.
Dear Kditor: We see by the
Sentinel of August l.'ith under the
caption "Contempt," that the im-
! aginatie I'alwr pusher of that sheet
attributed the nrliclos signed "Slick
Kar" to some intellectual gentleman
in Canvon City. Wo don't see
what there was in the Iieo items
that necessitated the thought split
ting reply which Mr. ltoyd stretch
ed over more than a column of the
Sentinel's very valuable (?) space.
Now we want to say lo Mr. itoyd
that the assertion he makes in re
gard to the lee items leing written
by some tntrty in Canyon Citv is
false, and, what is more, he proliab
ly knew it to be false, or, what is
equally as bad, made his assertion
without any foundation or reason
for so doing. "Slick Kar" is a resi
dent of the lienutiful South I'ork
valley, and has been for several
years and will probably eontintiu to
reside there fur some time to come;
he also pavs taxes anil has done so
ever since he has been in (Irani coun
ty, and no joint stock coniMny fur
nishes the capital for him to do
business with. "Slick Kar" also
siH-nds several hundred dollars a
thing but good will for the jK'ople of
John Dav. among whom be lias
: several friends.
' Ye, Mr ltoyd, the people of I zee
: appreiiote anything done for them
j in the way of mail facilities and !
we believe, in fact know, that the
1 Postmaster at Canyon Citv as well
as the editor of the Nkws have done
all they could to help thorn in the
matter, and im dear Mr. Iloyd we
also appreciate the good intentions t
' of the Sentinel in that matter and'
i would appreciate them null more, !
I but for, to use an old expression,
"the nigger in the wood pile." Do
j you think the eople of hoe are
, ignorant of the fact that your own
, interests and not theirs are at the
Itnttoin, and the reason why you
tisik the trouble to carry that
; s.'tilion around with you? Do you
sup'tosc for a moment that the peo
j pie of lzee believe, that if you hadn't
, ix'cii hunting subscribers, that you
, would have troubled yourself to cir
' eulate thai js'titiou on the South
! Fork? Do voii supiKvse that thev
are ignorant of the fact thnt your
main object was to cut them oil' as
much as orihlc from the count v
sent with which they especially wish
communication? Do you think
they do not understand that you
wish to hurt Canyon City us much
as toibe thereby hoping to bene
fit liy their injury " If you do, you
aro sadly mistaken, and the 'tcoplo
of Ixce are not quite so unsophisti
cated as you evidently suppose
them to be.
Mr. ltoyd says it is false that he
drew the jH-tition for stopping two
of the stages in John Day on any
one, or asked anyone living on the
South Fork to sign any such icti
tion. In making this statement
Mr. Ilovd has either forgotten at
""" l"-rly tt 1 '" ""'f "'
mail or else lias w iiiiuuy pruned a
falsehood! Why did you carry that
jM'titiuu with you Mr. Iloyd f Was
It for compum's sake, or was it not
rather with the cxcctatioii, that
with promises profuse and language
llowery, of being able to get several
signers, and is it not a fact that
after you had tried two or three
parties without results, you thought
it was policy to keep that j n-t i t loi i
in your isx'ket, or was vour bend
I yet so heavy and your bruin so bo
' fuddled that you were unable to
I distinctly remember w hat yon said
and done when on the South Forkt
; And now in conclusion, Mr. Fa her
I pusher, let us say that we think the
' man who would reply to little squibs
! like the Uee Items, in column edit
j orial must have a very light brain
indeed. Inmost such cases soak
I ing the bend is beneficial, but we
! don't think it would do vuu any
good. Probably soaking your feet
would bo belter.
