THE BAD HEART.
The Oregonian says : "The Dalles
.Chkoniclk must have a bad heart. It
c-an only see wickedness in everything.
It abuses all government officials and
railroad corporations, esjiecially the
Union Pacific," and then the Oregonian
quotes a few lines from the Oheonicle
in which this journal intimated that the
old O. S. & N. Co. were accessory to the
wreck of the Great Republic that was
lost on a sand bar near the mouth of the
Columbia, about twelve . or thirteen
years ago. If the writer of the para
graph in the Oregonian is old enough to
remember it, lie will remember that
the pilot of the Great Republic was
. accused of criminal connivance at the
wreck of his vessel and that the courts so
far held hi in guilty that he was suspended
for a year. No one thought for a moment
that the pilot wrecked the vessel of his
'own accord. There was no conceivable
reason for his doing so. Everything' in
. dicated that he was hired to do it by the
O. S; & N. Co., and that the company
and its successors have reaped the bene
fit of it ever since. If it is an evidence
of .a bad heart to believe thus then the
Oregonian had a touch of the same
disease when it reported simple
acts at the time of their occurrence, and
it criminally transmitted the disease to
the writer from which alone he learned
Jthe facts of the wreck and the judgment
of the court on the pilot.
If it be. a proof of a bad heart to
charge the government officials at the
Cascades with criminal delay in opening
up the Columbia river then the Oregon
' ian should know that the people this
side of tne mountains have the disease
in the form of an epidemic. A gentle
man second to none in this community
in cool judgment, intelligence and social
standing was yesterday overheard by
the writer addressing some half dozen
acquaintances in these words-; "I Major
Handbury should continue to superin
tend the works at the locks for the next
hundred years, and the appropriations
continue to be made as they have been
in the past the work would never be 'fin
ished. Thus we all have the bad heart.
It is the heart sickness of deferred hope
and we have it in an advanced state of
The editor of The Dalles Chko.viclk
is not made of the stuff that meekly
bears insult and ridicule forever without
kicking back. Scarcely a number of the
Times-Mountaineet appears without some
insulting reference to this journal. How
long is this to continue? Is there not
common deceucy enough left in the ed
itor of the Times-Mountaineer to let a
man alone who wants no fight with him?
Before ever a number of the Chkoniclk
was issued under our direction we per
sonally begged of Mr. Michell to be al
lowed to conduct a gentlemanly rivalry
with hi ili. He has chosen his own path
and we are most unwilling to follow him
in it. Both he and us can find much
more profitable employment than seek
ing to belittle one another. .Whatever
may be true of the readers of the Times
Mountaineer those of the Chkoniclk
have no interest in editorial fights. For
ourselves we are sick and weary of them.
Will the Times-Mountaineer let us alone
to pursue the tenor of our way or will
- it again force us, in common defense, to
a warfare that we are egotistical enough
to believe will bring no" glory to that
The Spokane Review,' a thoroughly . re
publican journal and one as ably con
ducted as any on the Pacific coast has
earned the gratitude of all honest men
with in or without the republican party
, for its fearless and manly exposure of
the corruption and dishonesty of acting
Governor Laugh ton. It is refreshing in
these days of truckling subserviency to
party and party interests to find a man
honest enough to boldly' rebuke the cor-.
mption of the leading men of the party
to which he belongs. The time has fully
come when integrity and unswerving de
votion to truth and righteousness should
be the grand qualifications for political
preferment and not the mere party
badge that so often covers a multitude of
The farmers' movement has a future
of grand possibilities before it if it shall
refuse to follow the ignis fatuus of third
party political autonomy. So long as it
remains non-partisan so long will it be
feared and respected, a terror to evil
doers and a priiise to them that do well.
So long as it remains in this condition
its power for good is incalculable. .The
secret of its strength will lie in its inde
pendency. Political conventions will
dread a power that will inevitably crush
corrupt nominations. To appoint bad
men for office will be to court defeat.
But ' let the movement descend to the
arena of mere partisanship and it will
become the pliant grain between the
upper and nether millstones of the two
The follwing persons have been inter
viewed within the past twq days as to
the condition of the crops in this county
lying between here and the Mutton
mountains. The general concensus leads
us to the opinion that in the country
described, spring sown grain, where it
was properly put in is in good condition
and with a. good rain rny time during
the next two or three will bring a good
crop. Volunteer and fall grain sown too
thick, is, (at least within ten miles 'of
The Dalles,) a complete failure. The
further one. goes south of the city
beyond Eight-mile the better the
prospect. Speaking for the Dufur
neighborhood Mr. Willis Hendricks says
that early sown spring grain, which
comprises a large majority of the grain
sown in that peipbborhood, has not suf
fered from "lack of rain and will stand
from two too three weeks more dry
weather without being fatally injured.
To insure a good crop, however, we must
Mr. Corson on the Thompson ranch
says he has about eighty acres of spring
grain that presents the poorest prospect
he ever had. It was sown about the
28th of March.
Mr. P. T. Sharp informs us that his
spring grain is in good condition and
with such rain as ordinarily falls about
this time a good crop is assured. Some
of his fall grain, where it is too thick, is
F. C. Clausen, whose place is near the
Deschutes r'ver beyond Nansene, says
that his grain looks well and that a good
shower of rain- will insure him a good
croo. ' Some fields of late sown grain
here and there has never come up, and
without plenty of rain will amouut to
Fall grain and volunteer, where it is
too thick, have suffered from the present
hot spell and some of it is past recovery..
The acreage, however, that comes under
this head is 'relatively small and is
chiefly confined to the countryjnear' The
Mr. P. P. Underwood says that in his
country east of Dufur the grain pros
pects are generally good. A good shower
of rain fell Mondav afternoon. There is
no fall grain in the neighborhood. Some
early sown grain that was sown too thick
is "fired" beyond redemption.
" Mr. D. Farrington, of Lower Fifteen
Mile says that in his neighborhood, and
between there and this city volunteer
grain is generally burned beyond
recovery. Spring grain is looking well
but we must have more rain to have a
good crop. - .-
Curious Animal Friends.
Residents in the lower end of town are
greatly interested in the curious affilia
tions of a young calf and two terrier pup
pies left to look out for themselves by
.their-owners. The animals are insepar
able, living, playing and sleeping to
gether. Whenever the puppies are en
ticed away in order that they may be giv
en food, they return to the calf as soon
as their repast is finished, and. lie down
beside it. The tender regard of the calf
and puppies for each other is as pathetic
as it is remarkable, - and has excited
much attention. East Oregonian.

'A correspondent asks. What is the
'dust destructor?" The dust destructor
is a group of furnaces set in an inclosed
space containing the requisite yards and
buildings used for consuming the rub
bish which is swept off the London
streets, which amounts to many thou
sands .of tons in a year. The furnace
house is approached by an incline-driveway
leading to a covered place above
the furnaces. - In this place the - scaven
gers' carts shoot their rubbish, which by
simple apparatus is dropped into - the
furnaces, where it is speedily converted
into "clinker." This clinker is then re
moved and broken up, Some of it is
ground, some reground, and some ground
a third time.
In the ward are seen' piles of broken
and ground clinker, some of course
lumps, some resembling gravel, some
looking like the finest sand. - For all
this material there is a use. Some of it
goes to form the foundation of roads;
some, mixed with tar, is made into a
durable pavement; some makes admira
ble sand for mortar and cement, and
some is made into imitation stone for
sidewalks. In the Buttersea district
of Loudon the parish wagon bouses,
stables, blacksmith shops, etc., have
been constructed entirely of this imita
tion stone made from the refuse of do
mestic dust bins and the streets.
If any of the resideuts of the parish
w;it any of ' the broken or ground
clinker for any purpose they are per
mitted to take as much of it as they can
carry away in barrows or carts. Noth
ing goes to -waste. The process of cre
mation is cheap, and this method of dis
posing of the refuse of a crowded dis
trict has had a wholesome effect from a
eanitary point of view. In Battersea
the death rate has gone down from
eighteen to eleven. New York Com

I give the everyday routine at Rugby
just as my young "Lower Middle" friend
rattled it off to me: "Well, the 6:15
morning bell wakes us, but we don't
want to get up. Then another bell rings
at 6:50 for five minutes. We've got to
get in our places in chapel in that time
to be 'called over, and if we are too lazy
tomakeit.it means a 'licking,' that's
all. After service we march in order to
our different 'form' rooms and say les
sons till 8:15. Then we have fifteen min
utes to buy any little luxuries, like penny
loaves the house bread's pretty dry
and then comes breakfast. From 9:15
to 1:13.' lessons; and dinner's at 1:30.
"We get a rest spell from dinner until
S, and then lessons go on again until 6,
except Tuesdays, Thursdays and Satur
days. - Them's naif holidays. Every boy
has got to join the games then, unless
he's got good excuse. Sometimes we get
off by shamming a sore foot - and many
other ways well known to us boys. But
whatever we're doing at 6 o'clock, games,
sauntering or study, everything's drop-,
ped, and we give a grand rush for 'tea.
After tea in winter, and after 7:15 in
summer, comes . 'locking up.' . Nobody
likes that. Then we have to pitch in
'on preparation' that's getting our- les
sons for... the - next forenoon until , 9
o'clock, when they give us a very light
supper that don't make anybody dream.
Then it's go to bed, and no fooling, or it
'means another 'licking,' sure as fees and
marshals, that's all!" E. L. Wakeman

The Sargossa sea is a region in the At
lantic, about midway between southern
Europe and America, extending from 21
to 23 degs. north latitude and between
29 and 45 degs. west longitude. It de
rived its name from a Portuguese word
signifying a grape, and was so called be
cause the seaweeds characteristic of the
region bear on their branches small air
cells, which in shape are not unlike the
grape clusters. The weeds themselves
are among the most peculiar of vegetable
productions, since they have no roots,
nor any signs of fructification, and are
propagated by division. They float in
the water, sometimes in dense masses ex
tending for miles.
This portion of the Atlantic is a great
eddy, - little affected by the currents
which surround it on every side, and the
stillness of the water, it is supposed, has
contributed to the development of the
weeds in the vast quantities in which
they are. found. The floating masses
were noticed by Columbus and bis men,
to whom they were a source of uneasi
ness, as the sailors supposed they indi
cated shallow water. Detached masses
of . the weed are often seen in the Gulf
stream, and the long, yellow lines of
floating weed are a sure indication of its
close proximity. St. Louis Globe-Demo,

A railroad man who knows Senator
Brice intimately told this story of him:
Mr. Brice for some time wanted certain
matters arranged at Sandusky, but his
desires were prevented by two of the
younger. Vanderbilts, and he finally
went to them. They laughed at him,
and Brice became quite angry. "Young
men,' said he sternly, "you must not
laugh at me; I won't permit it. Your
father laughed atme once and it cost
him nearly $9,000,000, and I Tcnow he
had a great deal more sense than you
President Brice in a month's time got
what he asked for at Sandusky. Indian
Many people consider that "bad tem
per" is entirely voluntary on the part of
the person who displays it. As a mat
ter of fact, it is often to a very great ex
tent involuntary, 'and no one is more
angry at it than the bad tempered per
son himself. Of course every one,
whether he is born with a bad temper
or has acquired one from habit, or has
been visited with one as the result of
disease or injury, should at least try tc
control it. But his friends should also
bear in mind that bad temper may be,
and often is, an affliction to be sympa
thized with, not' an oiTeuse to Uj pun
