AUGDST 18, 1894
A local editor on the Oregonian yes
terday tried his 'prentice hand on a bit of
a write-up for Frank Cr. Carpenter,
' the noted correspondent, . who is just
from Asia, and who will write a series
of letters during the Japan-China war
for a syndicate of American newspapers,
of which ' the . Oregonian is one. The
article alluded to is mentioned, and the
" appended quotations put in type, sim
ply to show that the said writer is the
least adjectiverous purveyor of news on
the coast. In applying a half column
of cold saliva to the well-polished repu
tation of Mr. Carpenter, he uses the fol
lowing wonderful language: "A series
of wonderful experiences." "The won
derful gun factories of China." "He at
tended a wonderful China banquet."
"It is only his wondertul letters.'.' "He
has' some wonderful things to tell."
"He can- use this wonderful material."
JThe embodiment of his wonderful re
searches." Bnt really the most won-
' derful thing mentioned is that Mr. Car
penter traveled in places that were so
eteep that he had to be carried up by
men, which is a pretty steep story.
We would advise our big contempor
ary to buy its reportorial force a diction
ary containing a table of synonyms and
nine bushels of adjectives, that he write
no longer 60 fearfully and wonderfully.
Falb's earthquake and tidal wave
have not shown up yet. We have
opened communication with Mr. Lord,
. who is at the seaside, to send us word as
soon as it arrived there, and will thus
j have the first news, because the Lord
; only knows when or how it is going to
' come. Just how that tidal wave is going
to get here is a myetery. It can't come
over the bar without a pilot, for that is
; contrary to the act of the legislature ; it
-can't be towed up the liver, for' that
would be undignified ; it can't be sent
' by express, for that would break it, and
if it came by freight it wouldn't stop
here anyhow for the O. R. & N. would
take it to Arlington at the same price.
In consequence of these things we ven
ture the prediction .that Falb is off his
We acknowledge the receipt of a com
plimentary ticket to the Oregon state
fair, to be held at Salem next month.
At the same time we received copy for
about 5 worth of free notices. We have
no use for either. Salem is more kinds
of ewine at once than any other town in
the state. Eastern Oregon has not for
gotten her action concerning the branch
insane asylum, and will see to it that
Salem and Salem's sideshows are let
Burely alone. The state fair is nothing
but a horse racing arrangement at the
best, and deuced poor horse racing at
that. There is one thing Eastern Oregon
would do for Salem cheerfully, and that
is to assist in making some other place
the capital of the state.- , -
Beloved brethren of the newspaper
fraternity, make a point of always giving
proper credit for the work of your
scissors. Sometime it happens that an
exchange might clip that same scissored
article and give you credit for it. This
would place you in a peculiar position,
for then well we have seen several
cases of that kind recently.
A FISH STORY.
Tout Men Did the Work and a Cat En
joyed the Benefit Thereof.
A Lewiston railroad man, - two
friends out of town and a local bag
gagemaster went fishing one night' and
early the next morning along the sinu
ous edges of Worthley brook, says the
Ijewiston (Me.) Journal. They lost
their sleep, walked thirty miles or less,
held their individual breath one hun
dred and sixty times by count at the
climaxes of the casts, and then came
home with one trout seven inches long
said trout having a sheepish look in
its face at being the only trout caught.
Their friends chaffed them, but they
said they had had a good time.
At dinner time they met and declared
that they'd dine off that trout, that
is, they would partly dine off that trout.
One of them cooked it and put it on the
table and then, while he stepped into
the kitchen for the salt box, the cat
jumped up on the table and ate the
trout. They returned in time to see
the cat washing her face and picking
trout bones from between her teeth.
They were philosophers, and their
philosophy alone saved them, but it
was rather galling to think that the
cat, that had sot lost any sleep, had
not walked thirty miles, had not stood
the gibes and slings of the multitude,
should eat the fish.
The eggs of the Florida chameleon
are hatched by the heat of the sun. If
kept in dry sand at a temperature of
not less than 98 degrees F. nor more
than 105 degrees F. they should hatch.

EVIDENCE OF THE PHONOGRAPH
The Court Finds It More Acceptable Than
That of the Plaintiff.
The phonograph is being -sised with
marked effect in English courts, says
the Washington Star. Recently a. rail
road company was sued by the- owner
of premises upon a street under . which
the road had run a tunnel. The com
plaint stated that the noise of the
trains going through the tunnel was
so great as to utterly prevent sleep,
while existence in daylight was. made
unbearable by the same cause. The
railroad company's attorneys produced
in court a phonograph which they had
managed to have placed in the premises
m question,, and when it was put in
motion, and failed to emit any of the
terrible noises alleged to have been
suffered by the complainants, and the
fact that it had been on active duty in
the building occupied by the latter
wasrufSciently established, the judge
dismissed the complainant without
further ceremony, virtually holding
that the evidence of the phonograph
was more acceptable than that of the
interested plaintiffs. '
An Old Song.
When giants lived In ancient times,
Sintr heigh, my boy, sing ho'.
In good old England, or foreign climes,
S ng t'eigh, my boy, King ho!
They carried things with a high old hand,.
Nor strong, nor weak, could before them stand.
And they killed whom they pleased throughout
Sing heigb, my boy, sing ho!
But the giants didn't have things their
own way when Jack-the-Giant-Killer
arrived on the scene. You remember
the story. Recollect, too, that every age
has its giant-killer. We have our giants
in the form of all sorts of dread diseases,
supposed to be incurable. Our Jack is
in the form of Dr. Pierce, who has proven
the expression "incurable diseases" '-to
be a fallacy. Can you imagine more
potent weapons to 'assist a woman in
killing the giant-disease, than Dr.
Pierce s Favorite Prescription? It's the
onlyguaranteed remedy for all functional
disturbances, painful .disorders, and
chronic weaknesses of womanhood. In
female complaints of every kind, ifit
ever fails to benefit or cure, you have
your money back. It's simply a ques
tion of the company you- prefer the
Giant or Jack?
