Mrs. Harby Lambert.
The rocks and things up Iiei-e, give
a peculiar interest to this valley.
Among the specimens that prompt
thiB writing is the fishery at Mr. My
ers a where the East Umpqua falls
about nine feet at a jump-off. The
silver tailed salmon find an ob&ticle
that they surmount only by exposure
to the grab hook that pulls many of
them ashore. There was an idea
among the Indians that to spit in the
river above the fall not a fish would
show himself for a period, and the
primitive people made rules that the
water should not be tampered with in
the fishing season. This idea obtains
at present, cvs experiments of the "whites
to prove its falsity, have never been
repayedia fish.' The fact looks like
moonshine, but there is truth in moon
shine and seeming terror in reason and
every wise man is a loony when he
Near the falls is a ietiified log about
two feet in diameter; some say it was
sawed off; it is of oak. You can see
the seams and count the rinra of
growth plainly as in a newly cut stick.
There is a mark near one end as of an
ax chopped into split, but who did it
I wont say. This speciman was dug
out by Mr. Horton, some feet beneath
a deposit. They knock pieces off the
log and found in them tine grained
Some less than a mile north of Win.
Swdbden's house stands a column of
atone thirty feet in diameter and three
hundred feet high. About eighty feet of
its lower partis of hard dark colored ig
neous rock, then about fifty feet of
conglomerate, which presents a white
appearance at a distance, but nearer
speckled with bowlders; on top of this
is a strata of more durablo deposit as
it has stood the action of tho wind
better and bulces somewhat to the
next layer which is also light colored
and of a less resistable composition
than the sjray cap rock it supports; for
the wind has worn it smoother and to
a less diameter, or else the lower part
of the cap rock was high water mark
when other billows surged around it
than those of air. Retiring from its
immediate piesence I noted its marked
divisions and viricle position like the
time candle that told the hours to
a romantic king, it would tell the ages
to a curious world; and what's its
name, calls it comical rock.
There is a natural biidsje a few rods
distant from the tower with an arch
about sixty feet high. You can cross
over by holding on to mansoneta that
grows upon its span, from this position
you can look over an extensive forest
principally fir, but millions of sugar
pine, cedar and maple besides a long
list of rare varieties that workers in
wood beyond the plains are only wish
ing for material for a new export en
terprise, or profitable neutralization by
more thrifty local industry.
On Mr. Engles place there are iiles
of iron; and Mr. Stephens cau show a
vein of as s;ood coal as can be produced
anywhere. We use lime that comes
across the contiocut ov from islands in
the Pacific, aud who cares where iclse
and leavo unnoticed and unkown,
millions of just as good lime within
our'limits that could be made a souio
of profit to many in need of employ
ment, if a board of trade or some other
fixing would attend to the market of
home production. There is capital
enough in this country but moth and
rust is upon it, and these cascades sing
on and on to no purpose, power wasting
and only wanting direction of human
will to lighten the burden of men. Too
much of the country is under the
blight of speculation the spirit of live
and let live is too retiring, the flame
of mutual interest of the country neo-
pie but makes a shadow in the blaze
of political ambition that rages in the
cities, and we read too much in the
light of pretended Tenefactors. The
country homes of a prosperous comma.
iiy is somctning more tuan camping
grounds of necessity but the fault is
not all on one side. I have in my
mind many illustrations that will base
the kingdom of labor upon industry,
skill, economy and foresight.
Will II. Walker.
A Spotted Ieer.
Two young ladies were examining
the animals in Central park, New York
"U, what a beautiful spotted dcci :
The other young lady, bowed her
head and wept.
Why, what is the matter with you
"xou don t know how it hurls my
feelings to have yon talk about Bpotted
deer. I once had a spotted deer." .
"Yes; my dear was a street-car con
ductor and we were going . to be mar
ried; but the company spotted him, and
my dear had toremVn his position, and
ever since T hr fn
1 hear anybody talking about a spotted
peculiarly sharp tone, to have my name
placed upon my arm. I wish it placed
across the 6houlderi where it will not
show much, and it must be in small but
distinct letters. I wish my full name,
not the initials. But will it hurt
much?' she asked, with a little shrink
ing back and a slight start.
"I assured her that the operation
would not be painful, but she sat a mo
ment in thought and then arose and
went to her dressing-case..
" 'I . must make a confession, she
said, suddenly turning and displaying in
her hand a small bottle, which she nad
taken from a drawer. 'I must tell you
that I am a confirmed opium-eater. I
acquired the habit some years ago, when
ill and taking morphine as a medicine,
and I have never been able to break it
off. I feel the need of the drug at this
moment, and I fear the pain of the op
eration of tattooing. Bnt I shall soon be
beyond the reach ol pain. V
"So aaytag, -she-HeJ- the1 noHowtjf
her palm with morphine from the
bottle and swallowed the huge dose at
once with th aid of a little water taken
from a glass.
" 'I wish yoa to stay,' she resumed,
until I am fully under the Influence of
the drug, and then proceed with your
work precisely as I have directed. It
will be an hour or more before the
drugtakes full effect.
"Then she threw herself upon the
bed, and I watched her silently from my
chair. She lay quietly for a long time
with her eyes fixed on the ceiling, out by
and by the lids drooped over the great
black eyes, and the long lashes lav on
the marble cheeks, and she slept; but it
was not a healthful sleep. .She
scarcely seemed to breathe, and I
could perceive onlvi the . faintest
movement of the white robe across
her breast as it slightly rose and felL It
seemed like the sleep of death. At length -I
arose, and, arranging my tools and
colors, went carefully to work. It was
fully an hour, and perhaps two, before
my task was done, for I took the utmost
pains. But through it all she made not
the smallest movement nor uttered the
slightest sound. At last the work was
done, and I arose and looked around
me. The lamp still burned brightly,
and the little clock on the mantel ticked
briskly. Just as my eye fell upon it it
struck three with a peculiar, soft, far-off
sound, like a distant cathedral chime. I
can not tell why, bnt a kind of terror
seized me. I stared about me and lis
tened, but heard no sound save the lick
ing of the clock. Then I realized where
I was, and a dozen fears suggested
themselves to me. Who was this woman?
Was she married or single? Was this a
trick to entrap me? Had &he taken too
large a quantity of the drug, and was
she dead or dying? I shook ner slight
ly, but her hand dropped limp upon the
bed. It was long past midnight, and I
was in an rmfamiliar part of the city.
Had she a husband or brother who would
pounce upon me in a moment? If she
was aeaa would l be held responsible r I
glanced at the silent form upon the bed,
and then, packing up my tools, hurried
ly left the house. . --
4 The next afternoon, whik working
in the museum, I chanoed to look - upl
and my heart leaped to my mouth, for
before me stood the lady of the night be
fore, her great lustrous eyes gazing
down upon me. Calling me aside, she
commended my work, paid me gener
ously and disappeared. I have never
seen her since.1'
"It is said that ladies often have the
initials or monograms of their lovers'
placed upon their arms?" was sug
gested. Oh, frequently! They often come in
their carriages and have It done. Once
I put tie words 'Dear Harry on a young
, "Do they ever come afterward and
wish it erased or changed?"
"Ch, often. I had a curious case
once. A very pretty and stylish young .
lady came here in a Heretic cab. She
said she had left her carriage standing
near the Public Garden ana had taken
the Herdic to avoid notice. She wanted
the initial T in a fancy letter placed
upon the top of her shoulder."
" 'You see,' she explained,: P stands
for Paul, the the gentleman whom I
I am to marry. I don't want it where
it will show, of course; but put it Just
where the shoulder band will cover it
When I am in full dress. Make it blue,
shaded with red,'
I "She screamed a little when the
needle made the first prick, but she soon .
discovered that the pain was insignifi
cant, and the work was soon done to
her 8ati?faction. '
i . " 'How pleased he will be,' she said,
when it was over. 'But he shan't see it
until after we are married,' she added, .
as she went out '
"A few months afterward a Herdio
stopped at the door and the same lady
alighted and entered. 'You see, sha
explained, with a very slight blush, 'that
the gentleman whose initial you put on
my shoulder doesn't doesn't come any
more, and I want it changed. Do vou
think do you think you could change
it to a B?' 6
" 0h, yes,' said I; 'that can be done
very easily.' - -
" 'You see this gentleman's name is
Bashford, and I thought yoa could
Change it easily.
! "So I changed the P to a B, and put
on a few flourishes, and she left. I
thought I bad seen the last of her, until
a few months ago she came again and
blushed in earnest.
i " 'Well,' said I, laughing, 'must I
change it again! What is his name
j " 'His name is Mortimer, and oh! we
are to be married next week, and my .
dress and veil are all done, and I am
afraid of making him angry, for be
knows nothing of the others. Do you
