There is only one industrial in the
city at present. His name' is '.Sam
Kline, a stationary engineer of Portland,
who belonged to Co. H, the first to
leave for the east. He resigned at Pend
leton and came home, at the solicitation
of his father. He will join the Coxey
reserve at Portland, which is variously
estimated to consist of from 3,000 to
7,000 men. This reserve furnishes the
money to Col. Scheffer with which to
move the army.
Co. II reached Pendleton at 5 p. m.
yesterday, and did not encounter any
more U. S. troops, as they fully ex
pected. At Arlington, a point they
reached' at 9 o'clock in the forenoon,
they met Marshal Brady, bat all he did
was to inspect . the cars to see that they
were not abused, and let the 'wealers
pass unmolested. ' His company left
Pendleton just before he left for home
and had no trouble getting out. Com
panies E and M are now in Pendleton,
as is Col. Scheffler who went up on a
paesenger train and is looking out for
their interests there.
Co. C. passed through The Dalles this
morning without stopping, and Co. L
will follow next. There are eight more
companies to come. ' On leaving Port
land they are supplied with two day's
rations, and are supposed not to stop
until they reach Pendleton. One com
pany will leave each day, consisting of
forty men and a captain.

MEN OF MANY WORDS.
Vocabularies of Kdncsted 3Ien Kcmcn H
UiBb as Twelve Thousand words.
How many words are included in the
vocabulary of ordinary persons? Prof.
Max Muller thinks a farm - laborer
would not have more than 400 words
in actual use, and the same writer de
clares that a well-educated man, who
has been at the university and who
reads the Bible, Shakespeare and the
daily papers, together with circulating
library books, seldom uses more than
300 or 400 words in actual conversation.
A contributor to Cassell's Saturday
Journal has been at considerable -pains
to check these theories, and . thi con
clusion he arrives at is that the figures
criven are too small. - Farm hands, he
finds, are able to name all the common
objects of the farm, and to do this in
volves the use of more than the entire
number of 300 words allotted to them.
Then, by going through a dictionary,
and excluding, compound words, or
words not in pretty constant use, he
found that there were under the letter
"s" alone 1,018 words that nre to be
found in ordinary people's vocabulary.
It would be nearer the truth, we are
told, to say that the agricultural
laborer uses 1,500 words, and knows or
can guess the "meaning' of 1.500 more,
and that intelligent farm hands and
artisans eommand 4,000 words, while
educated people have at call from
8,000 to 10,000. Journalists are credited
with 13,000. : :
