all owning homes. The strike
among the printers of this city some
years a 0 did 710 pood. The papers,
.undiminished, continued on. They
ouiethjies have valued reading, equal
'(to" volumes of books. It is desirable
jlhat all laborers should have books and
papers. .Combinations will prevent
this. If laborers will not become capi
talists, .they have to submit to thoj-e
who are sucb. Without the rich the
poor can't live j without the poor the
rich must work. To combine will les
sen their sales and be unjust to those
who get little pay and do not combine
the shoemakers of this city have had
their wages increased by a strike,
which will be the means of increasing
the difficulties of other laborers to
purchase their shoes! If these in
retaliation, increase their wages, the
shoemakers have gained nothing. Tor
many generations, strikes have been
made without any benefit. The molders
have an association tor getting higher
wages. When they forbid others to
work for the employer?, and say they
shall only have one apprentice to ten
workmen, they do what they have no
right to do. Men are born free. What;
right has any Legislature to pass or
make laws to dictate that 8 hours, or
10, shall be a legal day's work ? If
workingmen combine and demand such
restrictive laws from our Legislature,
then, I say, the Legislature has the
same power to fix or make laws to 12
or 14 hours per day. In short, this 8
hour movement, should it ever bo car
ried out, it is my belief that misery and
crime willi increase. It might benefit
few, buc the majority will hang
around , the. -whisky shops, and. other
bell holes. If one class of mechanics
. combine to raise their wages, all others
should d the same to be equal. If
stove molders combine the stove must
sell high, and less will be sold. If the
m older has to pay the carpenter the
increased, rates of wages, he will see
the absurdity of tho strikes. Tho
injury workmen do themselves by strikes
is to see their work done somewhere
else. Strikes diminish their employer's
capital, his machienry goes to ruin, and
aftor a strike tho employers uies fewer
workmen, and due3 not employ tho
leader. This fact shows that; the
strikers accomplish nothing. The
Scotch miner's strike was the most ex
tensive and bitterly contested in Scotland
40,000 were engaged in it. The loss
of wages was 82,600.000. The meu
have returned to work in a very gloomy
mood and a burning sense of injustice.
Harpers, iu early life, worked sixteen
hours a day, which caused them to own
the largest publishing house in I this
conntry. Their ambition is to supply
us workingmen with good and cheap
books. There are some mechanics who
earn fifty cents an hour attheir labor.
There aro others who endure the fierce
heat, tho bitter cold, and work for
twenty cents an hour. There are boys
who wish to be earning and dearning
something. If employers choose to
e mploy these, and il they can "be taught
to do the work, who has the right to
interfere? Why should the men who
dj the fcovete .work .have the .least
amount of comfort? Tho minds erf
the good and bt novoleot are continually
pained by the sight of human sorrow,
caused by want. This comes from man's
ignorance, and . from one mao oppress
ing another und bliodiu ,h.is Reason.
The Creator of the universe has done
his part well ; nothing is lacking to
complete man's happiness. ,

The reader will observe that in the
third item.it is stated that the weeds
are destroyed with great facility. This
is because the seeds are sown in straight
lines, and at regular distances apart.
Room is thus afforded the cultivator to
pass through it, stir the soil with a hoo
suited to the work, and destroy all
weeds. In broadcast sowing, this can
not be done, so that our fields are
frequently badly robbed by weeds of
the nutriment which the grain j needs
and when harvested its price is much
reduced by false and worthless seeds
mixed with it. This is the "process of
hoeing" alluded to the item five, as not
only greatly benefiting the grain, hut
as an important preparation of the
land for succeeding crops.

DALLAS, .OREGON; SATURDAY. JULY 20.
Changing Shirts In a Tunnel.
A Good story came iu with thoover
land train on Monday night. Among
tho passengws was a young mao j pos
sessed with a judicious share .of econo
my and a pardonable sh'ire of vanity.
The judicious economy was manifest to
the other occupants of the car by the
fact that the young man wore. ;plaiu
clothing aod-a trgla Cbeivot shirt all
the way from Chicago; and for the par
donable vanity well, how that became
apparent is where the joke cornea in
lie had only been ro tho East on a visit,
and the girl ho left behind hinil had
been notified in advance of his approach,
and in company with afew other'fribnds,'
was to meet hita at Niles' station, j
Visions of rapture floated through
his brain, and seated himself in a se
cluded part of the car, ho poured forth
his spirit's gladness of melody some
what as thu? : !
"Home again, home again,
From fob boh rrigo shore;
And oh! it Gila my o-o ul with joy,
To nm-at meat njy friends once more."
Suddenly he hushed hia notes of Joy
and reached for his carpet-bag. j
The appalling idea flashed across his
mind thai the shirt which had done him
so much .good ssrvice which had clungJ
to him during .his two thousand miles
of mountain, plain, and desert was
not exactly the thing to appear in when
one wished to intensify an already good
impression. It certainly wouldn't be
tho clean thing, he said to himself
it wouldn't be justice to the shirt, j So
he resolved to change if. "But' how?
The car contained several lady pnsi-en-1
gers, and they watched everything that
wasoin on around them with an as
siduity that did honor to the sex. Ah
ha! str-rratagy, my boy!" sail1 this
resolute young man to himself. Thi

the train was not far from the tunnel,
where thu metamorphosis was to take
place, so he turned !b back upon 'the
other passengers, and began to o).en
sundry button in short, prepired to
shuck himself. Presently the eventful
moment came, The iron hore phjnped
into the deep reee.es of the tunhel,
and the enr was surrounded in impena
trahlc darkness. .Presently a ray I of
light gleamed in fantastic shapes along
the ragged wall of the tunnel, and j by
its faint glimmer a struggling figure
was dhrernahle in the direction of the
young mnri's .cat As the light became
stranger its gyrations grew more frim
tic. Its grut long arm?, incased; in
white, thrashed wildly about, as though
in the agony of despair, and finally
when, with a shriek of joy the engine
dashed into the dazzling sunlight,! it
sank into its seat apparently crushed
with mortification and chargin.
The ladies screamed with terror, and
hid their blushes at the unusual appa
ration. Strong men crushed their
handkerchiefs into their mouths, and
ncarJy choked with emotion. t The fig
ure reclined motionless on the soft
cushion, until some one with more cour
age than the rest, advanced to ascertain
who and what" it was. Finally, the
terrible truth was revealed. The whie
covering was lifted, and from beneath
appeared tho features of our young
friend, clothed with carnktion's richest
hue. The mystery was soon explained.
He had gotten th Cheviot ott', but,
alas I in hisQjurry and excitement, he
had forgotten to undo the collar fasten
iog of the elegant white. frilled front.

The oieI Horn.
Our readers may remember the

story runs, when a certain revivalist
celebrity ook op the horn to summon
the worshipers to services, after din
ner one d iy, he blew a strong blast of
soft soap nil over the astonished audi
ence It is also said by the chronicler
of his item that the brother was so
wroth at this joke, that he cried out
aloud : ,4 Brethren, I have passed thro'
many trials and tribulations, but noth
ing like this. I havn served in the
miuistery for thirty years, and in that
time never uttered a profane word ,
but I'll be cussed if I can't whip the

quel to tfc same stoTy is as follows :
Some two days after the horn soaping,
a tall swarthy villainous looking des
perado strolled oa the grouods, and
leaned against a tree, listening to the
eloquent exhortation to repent which
was made by the preacher. After a
time he became interested, anally af
fected, aod theo taking a position on
the anxious seat commenced groaning
iu the very bitterness of his sorrow.
The clergyman walked down and en
deavored to console him. No consola
tionho was a great sinner, he said.
Oh, no ; there is pardon for the vilest.
No ; he was too wicked, there was no
mercy for him.
Why, what great crime have you
