TOO MEAN TOE HANGING.
Burdetts Finds the Meanest Man in the
The meanest man in all this land of
United America went down from Lin-
coin. Nebraska, into Kansas, the other
day. Mind vou, he wasn't Nrbras-
kan; 'he ffas an inter-statft immigrant,
coming from somewhere, east of the
Mississippi. At Wymoro, theio is a
uierchaiit who carries Lis stock in a
basket, and he is famous; all the land
over for his pop corn. He came on
the car with his wares, and this mean
man, who was traveling with his wife,
1 i 1 1 i e c h i 1 J c&pvrifti ps t h r ee ye: i and
liis father-in-law, asketl the price of
popcorn. "Five cents - a package."
That vvw 3 too much. He didn't want
any. Afu v the merchant left the car,
the mean man said: "I want some .o
that 'ere popcorn, bat I kin get it
clieaper'ii . that." Presently he went
out on the platform and said to the
dealer iu the fruit that cheers, but not
inebriate. ' "Sav mister, I want some
o' that pop corn, bnt 1 hain't got only
three ce.its. Now if you kin iemme
have a paper of it fur three cents, all
right; but I can't give no more fur it,
becuuse I hain't got only that much
monev.;' Well after someiiekering,
the merchant finally let him have a
paper of popcorn for three cents, and
the mean man came into the -car, sat
down beside his wife and little child,
and began munching his popcorn.
Never a crumb did he offer to anybody,
lie was just enjoying it. He said: "I
had enough money to buy his whole
basketful," but I knovved I could git
some fur less 'en live cents." As he
munched, hi father-in-law and wife,
seemed "'to understand that they were
not in, on that treat, but the child be
gan to iTach up its little dimpled
lands, and in the sweetest, childish
I," neg . tor son.e popcorn.
to hold the package out of the reach of
the pleading little hand?, 'the man paid
not the slightest .attention to the baby,
lint kept on eufing. Presently lilt;
mt)thcr spoke to iTiin"" and "said the
child wanted some of the corn. "Well,"
he replied," "if the child is any hungri-
er en l am, an wants this popcorn
n'Oie'n .1 do, he'd cught to have it,"
but he kept on eating it himself, and
never a griin ,did the child get. Pret
ty soon the littltt ftd'ow bfgan to ci
for the corn. This inav have annoved
the father, because lie soon j-rose, put
the popcorn up in the rack out of the
child's reach, and went into another
car. lule I.e was gone, the child
continued to cry and reach after the
banquet, and the mother took the pop
corn down ann gave some to the little
one. While 'this was cm 112 on. the
mean man came back. Furious! You
never saw anything like it. He
snatched the popcorn away from the
child and poured a torrent of abuse
upon his wife for daring to touch his
popcorn. Then he put it back into the
ack, and at intervals got up and ate
some of it until it was all gone.
Now in a case like this, and the
above is a truthful narrative of an ac
tual occurrence, 13 vo't. lynch law
justifiable Is not that kind of a man
more valuable and useful as a fertil
izer, than anything else ? Is nt he a
curse to society so Ions as he lives 1
And might he not prove a blessing to
the medical student and barren land,
when he dies 1 Then why not kill him
and make a Llessinar of him 1 Th
world has no use for a mean man. A
drunkard, a liar, a swearer, a tramp,
a swindler, a murderer, may have
some good traits, and have some sphere
of usefulness in this world, but a mean
man, pure and simple, Nature wasted
mud when it made him.
A scientist lecturing in Philadelphia
on coal, says it takes a prodigious
amount of vegetable matter to form a
layer of coal: that it is estimated that
the present growth of the world would
make a layer onlv one eighth of an
inch thick, and that it would take one
million years to form a coal bed 100
feet thick. The United States has an
area of 440,000 square miles of ccal
fields: 100 million tons of oal were
mined in this 1 country last year:
enough to run a ring round the earth
ac the equator, five and a half feet
... . i
wide v five and a half feet thick.
an i there is enough coal in the United
States to supply 'the whole world, for
a period of from fifteen hundred to
2,000 years. When coal is burned for
illuminating purpose?, at least ninety
per cent is wasted.
An Object Lesson for Imciigrants.
Under the inspiriting influence, of
the motto "A Head of Wheat is Better
than a Book," and with the commend
able" enterprise and energy in behalf
of the best interests of the sUte that
has characterized the action of those
who manage the affairs oi the Board cf
Immigration, details have been put
afoot which, when complete, will result
in thoroughly advertising 'Oregon, at
least to the people of some of the west
ern states. As soon as it is possible to
obtain spe.ci mens of grain from the
harvest fields of the current year, a
car will be handsomely fitted out - with
samples of what OregonY So fti the
way of cerealsj minerals, woods, fruits,
vegetables and descriptive matter; a
thoroughly informed man will take up
his abode therein, and the whole will
be started, on a missionary tour. This
is only made possible through the cour
tesy of railway managers, who control
roads to this point and those ra liatiu g
from Chicago, Des Moines, Detroit and
other points, have offered gratuitous
transportation for Oregon's specimen
car. It is the idea- to side-track the
car at conntv fair towns, and ,othor in
ferior places and make and' exhibit, or
give a sort of illustrated lecture from
the platform of this traveling immigra
tion board. Nothing educates like an
object lesson; 'nothing converts like
visible and tangible things;-and we
think our Board of Immigration have
wisely chosen among ways of doing
good to the state. Indeed -we think
this plan could be pursued profitably
even at the curtailment of expenditure
in the rooms iu this eityl We should
maintain our immigration headquarters
here, but au immigration board in the
iisld will make converts more rapidly,
and mako them out of a better class we
apprehnnd. Our Iowa visitots are en
thusiastic over the plan of the Oregon
car, and promise it a splendid reception
at state and county fairs. We hope
that our fanner friends will aid in this
good work b; for ward iwg .choice sam
j!es of grain, grasses, etc. to t!io State
lioard in Portend. E.t. " '
A Plucky Baak Cashier.
A few weeks, ago a bank at Mitchell,
Dak., P.nsf ended, and the affairs were
placed in the hands of en assignee. The
bank had a branch at White Lake, and
the cashier oe. the latter was ordered to
close it up and turn over the cash to
the assignee. But the cashier refused.
He said the White Lake branch did
not owe the Mitchell bank a cent, but
that, on the contrary, the bank at
Mitchell owed his bank $11,000. He
said he could not see why the money of
his depositors should be taken to pay
the debts of the Mitchell concern.
The assignee of the Mitchell bank
went over to White Lake, aud posted a
notice on the bank that it was closed.
But the cashier, aided by depositors,
tore down the notice. The cashier then
took one window and his assistant an
other, and they began to pay off the
depositors. The assignee jumped over
the counter and ordered a halt, but,
instead of halting, the ctowd took the
assignee and fired him out of the build
ing into the street. The cashier then
paid off the depositors in full, and put
the key of the bank in his pocket.
That ts the kind of a bink cashier to
have around. Perhaps the vigorous
action of the depositors may have had
something to do with this mode of set
tling up. It is an example worth fol-
Seventeen Year Locusts-
II. H. Ragan, of Salem, recently
received by mail from J. S. Ragan,
Indiana, one.of the "17 year locusts,"
now paying their visits to that afflicted
country, after an abscence of 17 years.
The Statesman says: He is of small
size, about twice as large as a horse-fly.
On each wing there is a natural letter
W, which supersticious people think is
omnious of and means "war." He
sleeps in his shell for seventeen long
years, then comes forth to make up for
the time which he has lost He tackles
all kinds of growing trees, and inserts
his stings into the bark, and deposits
her 02:2. The sting thns inflicted is
poisonous, and when frequently in
flicted in the same altitude around a
tree is death to the tree. Whole or
chards and forests are thus destroyed
They always come in big audiences,
there being billions of them now in
Indiana, They keep np an awful hum
ming noise, and are good flyers.
WHAT WU LACK.
A Letter From a Member of the Iowa
May I be allowed to say a word through
your extenssivtly read paper to the farmers
of your great state! Through the courtesy
of-the railroad companies I have been per
mitted to ride through its entire length from
north to south. I have looked over your
beautiful valleys from a practical farmer's
stand point. Over fifty years of my life have
been spent on the farm . Born and raised on
a farm, among the rocks and the hula of New
Hampshier, and then for the last thirty years
on one iu Iowa, I claim that nn!ess I have
been a very dull student I should know
something of farming.
Unless I am greatly mistaken the farmers
of your tr te are having something of , the
same experience that was bo bitter to thous
ands of our Iowa farmers in not very recent
years. The great and fascinating idea with
many was. wheat raising. Coming mostly
from the New England states, where the
grain crops were always small, the ease with
which extended acres could be cropped with
grain carried most of the pioneer farmers off
their feet, and they continued in j the grain
raising-busiuess until many lost their farms.
Some eight or ten years ago we, began to ag
itate the stock and dairy idea among our
wheat growing farmers and those who had
enough left from the wheat failures to get a
few good cows, and go into dairy farming are
now out debt aud are getting ahead in the
The cow and tha tame grass have saved
thousands of Iowa farmers from utter bank
ruptcy. It has struck me while riding over
j our tine valleys so admirably adapted to
clover and the grasses, that if the Iowa far
mer, "000 miles nearer market, can not raise
wheat only at a loss that the Oregon farmer,
in this grand climate so wonderfully favora
ble to the manufacture of cheese and butter
might possibly be making a mistake in con
tinuing to hld on to the old time habit of
iirain raising. .We have to-day iu Iowa over
500 creameries where butter is made from the
cream gathered by teams from the farmers
for a radius of fifteen miles and upwards
around them .... Aside from thebe there are
Urge numbers of cheese factories that make
cheese and butter. Then again the number
of private farm dairies is legion, swelling the
dairy product of our state to an amazing
The product is always cash, and as a rale
very remunerative and sure. Another thing
in favor of dairy farming is the fact that the
dairy" ftrm always increases in fertility while
1 grain raising is always depleting, j Your
fountain , strfamsaud spring?, your cool
moist climate, and your iuxnriant growth of
clovers, all tend to make these valleys of
Oregon the very paradise of the dairyman
Your distance from the great markets of the
world gives a tremendous emphasis to the
lea of putting as much value I j a pound of
product as possible. It costs bnt very little
more to send a pound of cheese or butter to
Liverpool than it does a pound of wheat.
The fanner must always remember that he
must pay the freight from the farm to the
market, be that market where it may. With
the dairy will come the impoved hog and
the steer, and with these conies more and
richer gras?, r.nd this means more stock, and
moie stock means independence, and with
this comes schooling, refinement and good
I do not say yon do not now Lave refine
ment and good society in Oregon, but I am
writing for my fellow fanners. I have passed
through all the privations of pioneer life
Taking a pre-emption in Iuwa thirty years
ago made a small begining, for seventeen
years I lived in my little fourtsen-footprt
tmptionlogr cabin, and it was tho cow and
the milk pail that lifted me Out of it. .If I
road rightly what I have seen in you. state,
there are thousands of farmers who can see no
way to pay the debts hanging over them
and send their children to school, with grain
at present prices. 1 sympathize wiih these
har-Jy men, aud I frankly sayj I can see but
little hope for them unless they follow the
steps of their Iowa brothers and turn from
grain to dairy and stock. This is safe and
sure. . It may be slow at first, but in the end
there will be no disappointment.
Tho natural growth of your towns and the
increase of manufacturing industries which
would seem for your abundant water p war
and inexhaustible stores of fuel inevitable,
will give a ready market near at home for
the dairy products of your farms. - Pordon
me if I have been too forward in the expres
sion of my views but so intensely am I enlis
ted on the side of the best good of the farm
and the farmers families I could not well re
sist the desire to give the farmers of these
gr.-.nd valleys the benefit of the experience
we of Iowa have gone through.
As a member of the press excursionists I
tender you my sincere thanks for the cordia
good will and welcome yon have shown us,
Our visit among your pnople will be the
event of our lives to many of us.
