Tom is a genuine specimen of the
genus Piketus Oregoniauscs. He lived
at the Dalles, Oregon, where he had re
tired to enjoy city life, after having ac
cumulated a competency by lucky spec
ulations in cattle.
Tom was no foo on the contrary
rather sharper than the average of hi
kind, in matters and things that he
Oue morning Torn . walked up town,
as was his wont, to see what was trout"
on, and stopped in front of the "Mount
Hood" saloon to exchange salutation?
with his friends, Jim C. and Vie T.,
who occupied arm chairs near the door.
dj. ining the ''Mount Hood" was a
igar, fruit "and genuine meerschaum"
pipe stand, and among the multitude of
wares exposed for sale on the sidewalk,
was a huge pije of cocounuts, arranged
like cannon balls.
Whats them asked Tom.
Cocoa nuts4 replied Jim quietly.
f'AVhat aro they fur?" asked Tom.
To eat," you darned fool, said Jim ;
didu't you ever see a coeoaout be
fore?" 'IIow do you eat 'em?" continued
Tom, waiving the . reflection upon hi
Why, boil there," continued Jitu,
with great immobility of face.
So without further delay, Tom pur
chased the largest one he couM find,
paying six bits therefor, and made bee
line for home.
The evening Tom came up town, and
entering the "Mount Hood," said to
Vic. in a ouiet tone :
The old woman has been a bilin
. that cocoanut all day, and it 'pears like
it ain't done yet every once in a while
ahe makes a dive after it with a two
prong'd fork, and it cavorts all round
.the kettle. What do you think ?
"Why," said Vic, "perhaps you did
not put any saleratus in the water,
fhat's it j go home aod put a handful of
faleratns in it, and keep on boiling it;
it may be an old one.
The next morning Tom started up
Jlaln j-treet, walking quite fast, with a
yery excited air about him, and. going
toward Vic and Jim, and pale, with
half suppressed passion, exclaimed :
''You thiuk you are mighty smart,
tJoo't yon, to tell a feller to go and bile
a cocoanut? Here we've been a bilin
and a bilin the cussed thing all day any
all night, and the blamed thing ain't
done yet. Now I'll just let you fellers
know that I don't near believe that's
the right way to cook a cocoanut no

From the Sublime to the Rld'cutous.
Old Judge Barlojr, of Virginia, af
ter enjoying the highest honers and re
tiring to private life, was prevailed on
to be a candidate for a local office. The
opposition trotted out an illiterate-rough-and-tumble
polician named Hill
Maples, against the old man. In ac
cordance with the strict rules of con
ducting a political campaign in those
days, Governor Harbour had to take
the stump with Maples. Uut Maples
could always beat him in abusive har
rangues. The final speech of the cam
paign made by Maples was abusive be
yond all preeedcut. The following is
Harbour's reply, which we think is the
most complete thing in its way we ever
read. fc?aid the Governor :
Ftltow Citizens; When I was a
young man, now nearly forty years ago,
your grandfathers sent me as their rep
rescntative for four terms to the Hi. me
of Delegates, and I was chosen Speak
er of that body. At a subsequent pe
rioJ I was twice elected Governor of
Virginia. Afterwards aud for ten
years I represented this renowned com
monwealth in the Senate of the Uni
ted States, where I may say I was the
confidante and perhaps I may .ay the
peer of Macon, King. Gaillard, I'ick
ncy, Van Huren. Mr. John Quincy
Adams subsequently conferred upon
me a place in his Cabinet, and lor tluee
years I shared his counsels in conjunc
tion with Clay, Wirt and McLean.
I was then appointed envoy extraor
dinary and minister plenipotentiary to
tho court of t. Janice, where it be
came my duty to conduct negotiation?
with the conqueror of Napoleon. Judge
then, fellow-citizen, of the ineffable
disgust I fe:l. after Mich a career, ,nd
in my declining years, at finding my
self here ti-iay engaged in a Io-( piti

Farming Pno-rrcTs A year r.go,
the balance of trade with European
nations was about nincty-eiiiht trillions
in gfld against us, all of which had to
be drained from the country and sent
to Europe to. pay for articles that would
not yield a cent to us in return, j This
state of things has changed for the bet
ter. Last June the balance was two
millions in our favor. They owe us,
instead of our owing them. Now, this
means that there are sixty millions
which will be spent in Europe, much
of it in matters which wiil reproduce
itfdf. It is well known that the farm
er feedeth all." and in whatever way
this amount of money is-spent.' the per
son spending; it must be led -by the
farmer. He ultimately receives the
money which they spend.
The continued news from Europe is,
that the wheat crop is injured by
drought. The war, too, will cause a
great additional demand for whw.t.
Doubtless our firms are o be benefit
ed by this state of things. Prices or
wheat have advanced in all American
markets, and will advance more.
A Practical farmer informs us that
he intends this season to try an expe
riment in watermelon raising, which he
has heard produces remarkable results:
Uury a bottle at the stem of the melon ;
place one end of a small string,' woolen
is probably best, in the bottle and insert
the other end into tho stem. Of course
tho mouth of the bottlcshouldbe higher
than the stem of the melon. As the
water becomes exhausted a fresh snpply
must be added. The melon iu this way
is fed gradually by capillary attraction
and grows to a size something less than
that of a sugar hogshead.
An Arkansas paper says: "The
coming woman came yesterday. She
arrived at the railroad station. She
came alone all the way from Hoston.
She met a stranger ai she alighted
from the train, whom she had never
seen before. The stranger was fasci
nated by her. They were at once mar
ried by a Justice of the Peace, and set
out for home in an ox cart. Heaven
The people will nit foil to notice
that, on the passage of the bill : to. re
duce National taxation, and so ease the
taxpayers of their burden, all the votes
cast against reducing taxation, were giv
en by Democrats. Thirty-five Demo
crafi ccoogressmen voted against the bill
to diminish the taxes. i

Paris. July 20. The following
proclamation of the Emperor to the
army, on assuming com maim m pvisuu,
was "issued to the soldiers at Metz yes
terday : "I come to take my place at
your "head to defend the honor of the
flag of our country. You go to eoa.
bat against one of the best armed of
European countries, but other c un
triea as gallaut as this have not bceu
able to resist your valor. It will be
the same to-day. The war which now
commences will bo long and hardly
contested, for its theater will be places
hedged in with obstacles and thick
with fortresses, but nothing is beyond
perseverance aud the efforts of the sol
diers of Africa, Italy and Mexico.
