An Irishman in The Dalles said re
cently: "Faith, Americay has some
great presidents. There was Abe Lin
coln he was a great president he
frayed the nigger ; Cleveland is a great
president, too he frayed the laboring
'man. Tkey are both fray from labor."
Mr. J. H. Crooks of Prineville re
turned from a trip with two -cars of
horses which he took to North Carolina
to sell. His experiment was entirely
satisfactory. Mr. Crooks is firmly pur
suaded that Oregon is ahead in every
thing and that he would not exchange
situations with what he saw east of the
Rockies. Oregon, while we complain of
dull times and depression, is not a cir
cumstance to the Eastern states.
Mr. E. Schanno has received a letter
from Mr. Carpenter, a pioneer hop
raiser of North Yakima, containing full
instructions 'as to the best method of
raising hops. . Mr.' Schanno believes
that the Tygh Valley country is especi
ally suited to hop raising, and being
near to the reservation, there are always
plenty of Indian pickers to be secured.
At some future time we will perhaps
publish Mr. Carpenter's letter. At
present no one is engaged in raising hops

The price quoted for prunes in San
Francisco by Mr. Meins was a retail
j, price, atus explanation is made because
some growers are of the opinion that
-Mr. Jtteins meant market nrice. Mr.
Meins' real words were that he had only
succeeaea in nnaing lt&lian prunes for
sale in one grocery store and the mer
chant asked 15 eents per pound for them.
The Spokane markets are conceded to

ligion, Mrs. Williams, has recovered
from her remarkable fast of 'nearly 110
days 70 days on the body and the
blood, and 40 days on absolutely nothing
but water and has gone to eating again.
In the regeneration of the' body ' Mrs.
Williams was asked toy "a Telegram re
porter to describe her sensations. It
was a graphic recital, but there was
much iu it that would floor the un

of the earthly clay into the spiritual
body, and many of the pains and aches
accompanying the leavening process
were so strikingly and accurately por
trayed that the unregenerated would rec
ognize in them symptoms of la grippe.

Ib.e Queer Story Related of Two Con
'Hon. Joseph C, nendrix, representa
tive in congress from New York, and
Hon. Richard Bartholdt, representa
tive from Missouri, used to be fellow
reporters in Brooklyn years ago. Hen
drix represented the New York Sun
and Bartholdt the Brooklyn Freie
Presse. The latter, in the course of
time, drifted west and rose to be a
prominent figure in local politics in
St. Louis, where he now edits an influ
ential German paper. Hendrix stayed
in New York, but m a general way ex
perienced the same disposition of a
benevolent providence as his former
colleague of the press. They turned up
in Washington about the same tune,
and there was a cordial greeting as
they shook hands. ' . ,
"What are yau doing in Washing
ton?" asked Hendrix. -
'That's- a fair question," said Bar
tholdt, "but suppose you tell me what
you are doing- here?"
. "Why, I'm a member of congTess,"
said Hendrix. - - .
"So am I," said Bartholdt. "How did
you get into politics?"
"Oh," said Hendrix, "I was elected a
member of the school board."
"So was I," said Bartholdt.
"Then I was elected president of the
school board," said Hendrix. .
"So was I," said Bartholdt. '
"Then'VI was elected to congress,"
continued Hendrix. ,
"And so was I," -exclaimed Bar
"Well," said Hendrix, "you and I
must have been born under the same
conjunction of planets." - "
Both had reached congress by pre
cisely parallel lines, after separating
in the reporters' room in the Brooklyn
city hall building, aud met after a term
of years in which they 'had completely
lost trace of each other.
T,HE. SPANISH BULL.
tbe Animal Is Developed Into a
Fighter for the Public Arena.
The bulls used for ' fighting purposes
are a specially -selected, specially-cared-for
class, t They are all pedi
greed. Andalusia 'is- especially the
district of the bull. Here, at the age
of one year, the , young bulls are
separated from the heifers, branded
with the owner's mark and turned out
loose on the plains to graze with others
of their own age.
: When a year older the young bulls
are gathered together in order that
their mettle and righting qualities may
be tested. One of them is separated
from the herd and chased by a man on
horseback, who, by the skillful use of
a blunted lance, overthrows the escap
ing bull, whereupon another rider
comes in front of the animal with a
sharper lance to withstand the ex
pected attack. . If the bull, on regain
ing his feet, attacks the rider twice it
is passed, as a fighting animal; but if
he turns tail and runs off then it is set
aside to be killed or to be used in agri
cultural, work. - And so with each ani
mal, until the whole herd of two-year-
olds has been tested.
Each - bull that has stood the test
successfully is then -entered in the
herd 'book with a description of its ap
pearance and receives a name such as
Espartero, Hamenco and the like. This
process of careful selection goes on
from year to year mtil the bull is five
years old, when, should its mettle still
prove true, it is ready for the arena,
and flaming posters appear on the
walls of Madrid or Seville announcing
that Espartero (or whatever his name
is) will, on such and such a date, make
his first and final appearance.
A 3ood "warrantable" five-year-old
bull for the fighting ring costs from
70 fts 80.
At Borne Do as the Romans Do,
Amhrose, bishop of Milan in the
fourth century, was once visited by
Monica and her son Augustine, the
celebrated bishop of Hippo, in North
.Africa. There was one point as to
which Augustine was in some trouble.
and he therefore asked Ambrose for
his guidance in the matter. At Rome,
he said, at was the custom to fast on
Saturday, while at Milan they fasted
not; what course was he, Augustine,
to take? "Well," replied Ambrose,
"when Ii am - here, I dine as they are
in the habit of doing, but when I go
to Rome I do as the Romans do." This
sensible saying has passed into a prov
erb, and means: "Fall in with the cus--
toms of those with whom you happen
to be living."

highly important that the farmers be kept
promptly and fully informed as to what is being

has better facilities than any other papers for

great amount of valuable information that they
can get in no other paper. . . ,
