i The members of the Oregon Pioneer
and Historical societ', deeming the dis
covery of the Columbia river by Capt.
Robert Gray, of the American ship Col
umbia, on the 7th day of May, 1792, an
event of national importance and worthy
of centennial celebration, has appointed
a special committee to issue a circular to
all pioneer and kindred societies existing
within the lxrders of the territorv ac
quired by the United States as the result
of this discovery, and now comprising
the important states of Oregon, Wash
ington and Idaho, inviting and urging
the said societies and organizations to
appoint and send delegates to Astoria
May 12th next, for the purpose of aiding
in the forraulatingand adoption of a plan
and programme for the centennial cele
bration of this important event in the
national history of our country, on the
7th day of May, 1892.
Eastern Catholics are greatly aroused
over Archbishop Ryan's order against
Sunday funerals. The archbishop's or
der is based upon the belief that the
habit of interring the dead on the sab
bath day has a tendency to distract the
faithful from the proper performance of
their religious duties, while at the same
time it is also said that a 'good many
Sunday f itnera Is of late have not been
conducted with that decorum due both
to the event and the day. But poor peo
ple object most vigorously to the arch
bishop's order as it appears that Sunday
funerals are cheaper than week day fun
erals, while they also involve no loss of
wages on the part of attending friends.
The opposition is taking the form of a
remonstrance that is being ' signed by
The Washington tiZ3.MartB&&y'up
ex-Senator Ingails about right when it
says that he is a sample of the treacher
ous politician that has been a curse to
this country. The revolt of last fall in
Kansas from the republican . ticket is
evidence the people have lost faith in the
bosses. The speeches of Ingalls now
show he has all his lifetime in a public
capacity been misleading the masses of
the people and doing the bidding of the
corporations, trusts and other money
- combines. Had the gentleman been an
honest man and led the people from un
der the yoke of bondage, he could today
be warming a seat in the senate. He is
shedding penitent tears, but the ieople
will trust him never more."
The Century and Harper now run
about 130 pages of advertising each issue.
.Eac h page pays them $3,000 a year
$780,000 a year for the two. The adver
tisements of these magazines, like the
adverteements of daily newspajiers, are
the most interesting part of the ieriodi
cal. Gladstone, for instance, subscribes
for Harperx and the Century just to read
the advertisements. He says that noth
ing gives him so good and complete an
idea of this country's growth and indus
Co-ojeration is one of the pricipal pur
poses of the alliance:
If every alliance would co-operate in
securing a reduction of the indebtedness
of its membership to make the present
crop, it would prove a boon this fall
when the debts will have to be paid with
lifty cent wheat.
Every farmer should conduct his oper
ations tor profit. It is not what is pro
duced, but the profit that the production
will yield that renders farming success
ful. One of the greatest factors in this
problem is to secure the production at as
little cost as ponsible, and have it cum
bered as little as possible with debt when
it shall be harvested.
Wisdom' From Nye.
Bill Nye has been noticing the farmers'
movement and also studying its princi
ples. . The follow'iug allusion to it in his
last week's letter to the public is char
acteristic of him" and put in his inimita
ble style. He says :
"Mr. Simpson is the humorous feature
of the new and powerful movement
which seems te create general mirth;
but there is a power and a principle be
v hind it all to which it will be profitable
to pay attention. It may not win this
time, but when it does win the profes
sional politician will do well to get into
his cyclone cellar and spread his um
brella. . .

Fruit Tree Vests.
D. M. Jessee, of Walla Walla, Wash
ington, gives the following remedy
which has proven by experience to. be
effectual in destroying all insects and
fruit pests thus far known, to the North
west Horticulturist, published at Tacoma.
This will hereafter be known as "Solu
tion No. 1."
For summer spraying : Take two gal
lons of water, put into this one pound
sulphur, one pound concentrated lye;
boil for two hours, then add one half gal
lon fish oil ; boil until it makes a hard
soap ; add one half gallon kerosene oil,
stir well and boil a few minutes. Add
to this twenty-five gallons cold water.
For winter spraying double all the in
gredients for the amount of water used.
This solution, - ith a sprayer, will be
effective in destroying the Aphis.
2nd. "Two pounds of rosin ; three
pounds of sal soda, or one of concen
trated lve; water to made thirty-six
pints. Dissolve the sal soda or lye in a
few pints of water. When thoroughly
dissolved add the rosin. Heat until dis
solved and add water finally. Use one
and one-half pints of solution to the gal
lon of water. Use at a temperature of
one hundred degrees Fahrenheit."
Baby is sick. The woeful expression
of a Des Moines teamster's countenance
showed his deep anxiety was not entire
ly without cause, when he inquired of a
druggist of the same city what was best
to give a baby for a cold"? It was not ne
cessary for him to say more, his counte
nance showed that the pet of the family,
if not the idol of his life was in distress.
"We give our baby Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy," was the druggist's answer.
"I don't like to give the baby such strong
medicine," said the teamster. You know
John Oleson, of the Watters-Talbot Print
ing Co., don't you? inquired the drug
gist. '"His baby, when eighteen months
old, got hold of a bottle of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy and drank the whole of
it. Of course "it made the baby vomit
very freely but did not injure it in the
least, and what is more, it cured the ba
by's cold. The teamster already knew
the value of the Remedy, having used it
himself, and was now satisfied that there
was no danger in giving it even to a
baby. For sale by Snipes & Kinersly.

B. Denny, a well known dairyman of

LESLIE BUTTLER, The Dalles, Or
One of the most curiouaj" natural pro
ductions of the West Indies is the famed
vegetable fly, an insect -About , the size
and color of a. drone bee,bnt ,rwithopt
wings. In the month of May it' buries
itself in the earth and begins to vegetaiej
By the beginning of 'JTune'. . sprout has
issued from the creature's ' back ' and
made its appearance above this surface of
the ground. By the end of July the tiny
tree, known on the islands as the fly tree,
has attained its full size, being then
about three inches high, but a perfect
tree in every ' particular, much resem
bling a delicate coral branch.' Pods ap
pear on Jits, branches as' soon as it ar
rives at its full growth; these ripen and
drop off in August.
Instead of containing seeds, as one
would naturally suppose, these pods have
from three to six small, hard worms upon
their interior. The pod soon shrivels np
in the hot sun and bursts open on about
the third day after becoming detached
from the parent stem. The little worms
roll out and bury themselves in the sand,
and after undergoing the change inci
dent to all caterpillars become flies,
which, when the proper time comes, bury
themselves in the ground to furnish nour
ishment for another miniature "fly tree."
.. Dr. Martanisque, of the Royal institute,
who has received several boxes of these
flies upon winch he has made repeated
experiments, gives a long scientific ex
planation for the seeming impossibilities
attributed to this insect, which is, at
best, wholly unsatisfactory to the general
reader, even though his coworkers in
that branch of science may consider, it

Something A boat Coal.
It makes the present generation smile
to read the accounts which have come
down to us concerning the prejudices
which were formerly entertained against
certain articles which are at every day
For instance, it is said that when coal
was first used in England the prejudice
against it was so strong that the house
of commons petitioned the king to pro
hibit the use of the "noxious' fuel.
A royal proclamation having failed to
abate the nuisance, a commission was
issued to ascertain who burned coal
within the city of London and its neigh
borhood, to punish them by force for
the first offense, and by the demolition
of their furnaces if they persisted in
transgressing. A law was finally passed
making it a capital offense to burn coal
in the city, and only permitting it to be
used by forges in the vicinity. It is
stated that among the records in the
tower of London a document was found
according to which a man was hanged in
the time of Edward I for no other crime
than having been caught burning coal.
It took three centuries to entirely efface
the prejudice. Texas Sittings.
The Band Kiss.
The kiss of the hand is undoubtedly
ancient, and therefore is not derived
from that of the lips, but probably the
converse is true. The hand kiss is
loosely asserted to be developed from
servile obeisances in which the earth,
the foot and the garments were kissed,
the hand and cheek succeeding in order
of time and approach to equality of
rank. But it is doubtful if that was the
actual order, and it is certain that at
the time when hand kissing began there
were less numerous gradations of rank
than at a later stage.
Kissing of the hands between men is
mentioned in the Old Testament, also
by Homer, Pliny and Lucian." The kiss
was applied reverentially to sacred ob
jects, such as statues of the gods, as is
shown by ancient works of art, and also
among numerous etymologies by that
of the Latin word "adoro," and it was
also metaphorically applied by the in
ferior or worshiper kissing his own hand
and throwing the salute to the superior
or statue. Popular Science Monthly.
California's Gold T
Never in any other country has a change
in the political dominion been followed
feo promptly by so marvelous an increase
of wealth and population, of productive
industry and general intelligence. Never
did a province repay new masters more
liberally for their trouble in its acquisi
tion, nor did any other conquered terri
tory ever receive greater benefit from
conquest. The most notable instances
in history of triumphant invasions re
warded with great sums of precious
metal were those of Babylonia by Cyrus,
of Persia by Alexander, of Mexico by
Cortez, and of Peru by Pizarro all pop
ulous empires, with wealth accumulated
through centuries of prosperity. Yet
not one of them yielded to its conquerors,
within a generation, so much treasure as
did desolate California to the Americans.

The Fly Had the Nerve.
Allan Forman, the publisher of The
New York Journalist, went out one day
not long ago to take lunch with a friend.
This friend had a glass eye, a calamity
Mr. Forman knew nothing about. When
they had finished their meal they walked
up to the cashier's desk to settle. As the
gentleman was paying the checks the
newspaper man noticed a fly calmly,
coolly and deliberately walking across
the ball of his friend's eye. That indi
vidual seemed not in the least disturbed,
and when Forman spoke to him. about it
he said, "Oh, that's nothing." Forman,
naturally astonished, said in reply,
"Well, by gracious, you must have a
nerve." "Oh, no," answered his friend,
"it's the fly that has the nerve." Arkan-
