An ear of corn eight and one-half

tops on L. M. -Sterlings ranch, adjoining

It is from a volunteer ten acre field, and
was never hoed, cultivated or watered.

It would be a valuable find to the
fleece masters of the plains to discover
some variety of grass which shall prove
to be capable of growing in in alkali
soil. ' On this depends ' the reclamation
of - hundreds of thousands of acres,
which otherwise are likely to. remain
forever worthless. A California writer
states that he found the danncl or rye
grass, loliuin ferenne, growing thriftily
on a piece of very bad alkali soil, where
nothing else would flourish, and that it
made good pasture. .Bermuda grass is
another that will grow in alkali soil and
it has proved valuable for, sheep grazing

The Ciieoniclk believes that it is un
necessary to answer fakirs of any kind,
whose ambition it is to provoke a wordy
war. Groundless and false charges
against anyone, from even a man repre
senting himself as a minister of gospel
truths, especially when directed to mem
bers of another sect, in the vindictive
style of bitterness belonging to the fa
natical bigot, does not carry with them
that conviction which ehould incite the
intelligence of men-to a discussion of
the ridiculous and vulgar assertions.
The Sisters of Most Holy Names, whose
lives have been devoted to good works
and the kind offices of charity .the world
over, would nurse back to life the man
who smoto them with his vile ravings,
or forgive him for his abuse of them, on
tho same principle which once actuated
Christ himself to plead for his perse
cutors, as they knew not what they
were doing.' All who have a heart in
them capable of sympathy with the un
fortunate and sorrowing elements in hu
manity, can appreciate the position of
Thk CimoNicxE on this subject. Every
one of us will have an account, finally,
to Him,who deals justly by all, and the
Borrows caused -by unlicensed speech,
even though it be in a -pulpit (so-called)
may be punished as a crime.

B. F, LAUGHLIN,
How Some-of tlie Youths of Enscne.Are
Taught jto Act.
During the Turner's festival in Port-
laud recently visitors froui The Dalles
greatly admired the drill of a corps of
youths from Eugene, and Mr. I. C.
Nickelson brought with him a large
sized photograph which presented a
view of the boys, together" with others,
which has since then attracted consider
able .attention. It will be interesting to
many of our readers to know more of
them as they are being recognized by
military and athletie companies from
California to Washington. Nearly two
years ago a boy named Emil Baker, son
of Chas. Baker of Eugene, says a corres- j
pondent, wanted a gun. Mr. G. A. j
Sachs, who was an officer in the royal
Saxon artillery, began teaching the little
fellow the tatics of the German army.
Soon Emil's friends who saw his rifle
made after the Prussian gun model,
wanted to learn to be soldiers, too. It
was not long before Mr. Sachs had his
bauds full, for as fast as the boys came
he made them guns and drilled them
until he now has a" company of sixty
boys and sixteen young ladies, who drill
with lances and calisthenics, exercises
tending to physical improvement. The
training which the boys receive are the
German army tactics : - 1,- German gym
nastic, whiclrcpnsists of sixty different
movements of the body, developing
every member of,. the body 'uniformly.
2, gymnastics with rifles. 3, manual of
arms. . 4, marchifig. 5, field tactics.
The suits are made like sailor suits,
therefore the name Marine Cadets was
adopted. " ' ..
The Guard gives the following as the
rules and conditions on which a boy
may join the Marino Cadets: ' Cleanli
ness, he must not come to drill with
soiled hands or face ; he must not use
tobacco in any form; he must not use
profane language and must be attentive
to all commands of his instructor.
When the boys have learned the drill
and have conducted' themselves like
soldiers, their guns are given . to them.
The organization is free to all boys rich
or poor, bad or good. The boys who
would be on the streets and in mischief
may be. yours. - Idleness makes' bad
boys, bad boys makes bad men and they
fill our jails." The cadets are taught to
use their comrades like ' gentlemen, and
care is taken to develop them morally
as well as physically. We who have
watched with pleasure, the work of Mr,
Sachs, know he has spent all., his spare
time and money on our children and
brought them to their present condition
with but little aid, and starting in after
today provision has been made for a
comfortable hall, for their use, and Mr
Sachs will spend eighteen hours each
week drilling the boys and girls as he
has heretofore. It is a credit to Eugene
Land a model worthy of imitation in
other cities. . .

An interesting Meeting.
Those who attended the TeachersTu-

evening, listened to a very, entertaining
debate between chosen sides, under the

than the city schools."--. -

To Prof." Gilbert was assigned the

Knot.t, J. A.; Haylock, F. G. Conley,
Miss Charlotte Roberts, Mrs. Dr. ' In
