A FABLE OF THE FOURTH.
A Pendleton barber died the morn
ing after the celebration and went
up down to his reward.
When he arrived at the pearly hot
sates the Devil was busy preparing
3(i other sinners for Initiation and
pointing to a white-hot stool near
by, said jocularly, "Sit down and
smoke awhile. 'You're next.' "
The barber looked around for an
soestos protector to placo on top of
the stool, but they were all in use, a
Pendleton bootblack who had just
preceded him having two protectors
on top of his stool.
One by one tho applicants for ad
mission were disposed of, and the
iarber's turn came. While he wasn't
in a hurry, he thought it a mean,
trick for Satan to say lie w'as "next,"
when there were 1C ahead of him.
As ho arose to bo branded and
dressed for entrance, Satan yelled to
an attendant inside:
"Go and pile up a thousand car
casses of Mad Mullah's soldiers under
that premium furnace. If they won't
Sum, I don't know what will." He
remarked to tho barber that It always
rained on the Fourth and his fuel was
Then Satan stopped with his hand
jesting on tho door, to explain,
"You see wo liavo a contest hero

inow how hot the stall is, for tho
man who wins it will be selected for
his special sins and the thermometers
will all be removed."
"What Is the contest to decide,"
timidly asked tho barber.
"Wo are voting to select tho man
who perpetrated the greatest wron i
on his follownion on earth, on the i
Fourth of July," replied Satan, j
Just then tho door was opened from j
-within and an Imp said softly to Sa-1

"This will stop their jangling,"
said Satan, as he opened tho door
ind pushed the barber In.
Another vote was taken Immediate
ly and the barber who charged his
patrons, double price for a sliavo on
the Fourth of July, won tho prlzo.

RESURRECTION OF THE RANGE.
A number of years ago, the Mon
tana legislature onacted a law com
polling owners of all abandoned min
ing shafts to fonco these pits, as a
means of proventlng stock from fall
ing Into them. Some of the owners
obeyed tho law, and somo of them
proud AmorlcnnB that they woro,
Among those obeying this humane
law woro some largo English mining
companies, who not only fenced tho
abandoned shafts, hut built a tight
fence around n lot several rods in ox-
Soon tho tramplcd-out bunchgrass,
famishing for a rest, began to grow
luxuriantly In theso protected lots,
and the result of this law is, that
many ncres of despoiled range has

process goes on wltliout rest. No
seed is matured to bo scattore- by the
kindly winds to propagate tho grass.
Nature struggles hard to perpetuate
tho specie, but the destroying ravages
of cutting hoofs and nibbling teeth
outdo all her efforts at rebuilding.
There Is a lesson for Oregon stock

Important subject now before him.
The little expense of.enclng off tracts
of bunchgrass land for seeding pur
poses should not stand in the wny of
tho final reclamation of tho entire
range districts of the state. Seed
from theso small lots on tho Montana
ranges has matured and scattered
over a largo adjacent territory, until
many parts of tho destroyed range
has been restored.

ono or two seasons, It ripens, and
scatters seed over tho ground In such
quantities that tho range nppei-3 oven

method yet suggested for the restor
ation of Western ranges,
Let every stockman of tho range
districts fence off lots of bunchgrass
land in 10 to 20 aero tracts, just as
tho farmer would summer (allow his
wornout wheat land. This rest will
ronow the old stock of gra.w and ma
ture seed for a new crop on the land
This process followed closely for
10 years, will restore tho foothill
ranges to something near their olden
value and tho cost will be so trifling
thnt it would not stnnd in the way,
This Is a subject for discussion nt
tho coming convention of the wool
growers in Uaker City. It is a sub
ject for discussion wherever the
stockmen of the Inland Emplro con
gregate to talk over plans for tho
perpetuation of thler business. It
stands ahead of the introduction of
new species of grass, or any other
plan for tho rejuvenation of Western
ranges yet proposed.

A somowhnt pompous individual
was once talking to a friend about

to become accustomed to being hail

offered me at frequent Intervals dur

Queen Elizabeth, once admir

on It, begging at tho same time to

said he, "a lover risks too much on
such an occasion; but your mnjesty's

I fear to name her, but request your
majesty's acceptance or her portrait."
He sent her a looklngglass.
Cardinal Mazarin, durjng his reign
or power, wus told that two ladles or
tho court had had a bitter quarrel, in
tho course of which they accused ouch
other or crimes and sins such ns no
lady's character could bear without
dishonor and disgrace. The cardinal
listened attentively, and than quietly
asked: "Havo they called each other
ugly?" ' No, Monslgnor," wns the re
ply. "I have not heard that either
of the ladles made this reproach."
"In that case," rejoined the cardinal,
"I dare say I can reconcilo them."
