This space is jdven for the ifc and
benelit of our local writers of verse,
and we hope to make It a pleasing feature
of the paper. To that end contributions are
solicited, but they must povsetK undoubted
literary merit to ohtiiin place and recogni

Ah Poey I like some sweet floivrct newly
Tiiat dheds its yagrance throng b tho am
Thou b' eatliest thy music through the soul,
tin ugii torn
With bitter grief, and sublunary care.
Thy spirit li t me .share.
From tkv nweot fountain sip its dewy balm
Soothed by the .strains Castalia'.s Nymphs
Whence nothing comes to mar its holv calm,
Or turn astray the kindly feeling heart
With sly ensnaring art,
Tis time to weave thv hoft, enchanting spoil.
Through souls that's tarnished with the
world's dark stain ;
Teach them to raNc their voices, and to swell
, Their songs in harmony with God's own
Through Nature's wide domain
List to the murmur of the ocean's voice.
To hear a' pooivt in the wind's low wail,
'Neath the sweet .strains of I'liilomella's
Divine instinctively her former tale,
And with her to bewail.
And then again, Oh Poesy! 'tis thine
To rouse tri'tn out its listless npatuy,
The latent tire in the soul divine.
To love, to grandeur, and to peace, and
And .sweetest melody!
Nor is this all ! with ringing voice and strong
'Tis thine to drive dark Error from the
Aud with fairTruth to overpower the wrong
And to Mclcheedco restore his ancient
E'en to the cuds of earth !
Amos K. Jo.nbx.
Washington, Nov. 12th, 18S7.
To the editor of the Oekuon Scout. 1
Iu no citv of the United Stsiteii was
there more general and profound in
terest in the recent election than in
Washington, for here are temporarily
domiciled representatives of every
State and Territory of the Union, uh
u cenerul thinir their tenure of nlacu
being in a large measure dependent
upon the changing fortunes of politics.
Realizing the force of thin truth, your
correspondent, on liiht Tuesday night,
strolled out ou Pennsylvania avenue,
and joined a throng of over one thous
and men, who were tolidly ninptfod iu
frout of the Daily I'ost building, where
the election returns weie displayed in
an upper story window by means' of a
stereoptieon. The crowd was us good
humored as it was largo and was per
fectly orderly; as (he news was blazon
ed forth there were Republican cheers
and Democratic cheers quickly follow
ing each other.
At the White House, President
Cleveland had a special wire, and toon
after the New York figures began to
flush forth, the Chief Magistrate face
.was wreathed in a smile that was
child-like and bland, and when lie re
tired to rest for the night, he doubtless
had bright visions of a second term in
the historic mansion.
It is lets than a month now till the
meeting of Congress, and the popular
interest is focused upon the probable
course of that lody, in regard to econ
omic questions more especially the
taiifT which over-shadows all others. I
believe there will be a substantial re
duction, both in enstom duties ami in
ternal revenue taxation, for unless
both are reduced, neither is likely to
be as fetich legislation will probably bo
in the nature of a compromise. That
the present tariff should be re-adjusted
is the opinion of the brightest states
men of both parties the only question
being the desiied method.
Other important mutter that will en
gage the attention of our national law
makers, will be the proposition to
change the term for which Congress
men arc elected, and ulso to change
the time of meeting of Congress from
the first Monday in December to some
time in January. Under the present
system of Congressional service that
is, members of the House of Represen
tativer they are elected thirteen
months before taking their seats.
Thus a member's encccesor is elected
before the incumbent's term in half
out. This old-fogy plan aho tends to
destroy our theory of popular represen
tation, which is the cornei-stone of
true republican government, for a
Congressman, who reflected the wishes
of his constituents thirteen montlm ago,
may have drifted away from their
views upon vital questions by the pres
ent time. Evidently there is need of
real reform here, and it is to bo hoped
that u result tu greatly desired may bo
V Spicy Letter t'mm Our Ki-Riilnr
No sleigh-riding yet.
Everybody beginning to "hole up."
The water that supplies Kudus &
Co's saw mill is causing tome trouble
now, by freezing up.
Pyle Canyon school is running along
nicely at present ; the fair representa
tion of thoughtful parent.-, and the
choice of an excellent teacher.
Mr. James Ilaynes, a resident of
Riiino Klat, near this place, moved in
to Union a few days ago on account, of
Mrs. Ilaynes' health; she is troubled
with consumption in a slight form.
Well, how lonely it seems here, this
winter! Our duneiiig people have all
gone ; our old dissipating friends have
become too pious to indulge in tho in
nocent sport any more, and we have
no literary organization yet. What,
shall wo do?
Miss Emily Ashbey, our over wel
come friend, returned from North Pow
der a few days ago, where she has been
working the past summer. She will
attend school in Pylo canyon, until
some young fellow, with silvery tongue
and pleading accents, happens along
to prevent it.
Mr. Ashbey and sons returned from
Jordan Valley I. T. where they have
been hunting and trapping for several
months. They report game very
scarce, and fur bearing animals not
very plenty, Our game is not as a
bundant as it u.-ed to be: the game
law should bu enforced more strictly.

THE WAY TO DO IT.
If you want your town to improve,
improve it. If you want, to make your
town lively, make it. Don't go to
sleep, but get up and work for it.
Puch. Advertise it. Talk about it,
and talk favorably. If yon liavu any
property, improve it. Paint your
houses; clean up your back yard.
Make your surroundings pleasant, and
you will feel better, and your property
will be wortli more dollars in the mar
ket. If you are doing reasonably wdl,
advise your far-away friends to come
and invest near you. Work steadily
for your home place and hoine inter
ests. Trade at home; help your homo
dealers. Keep your money at home
as much as possible, and it will bo like
ly to help you in return. Public im
provement is an investment that pays.
Don't waste your time over some dirty
neighborhood quarrel, and hold buck
your aid fiom some good object
through spite, but work for some good,
and you will find yourself benefitted.
Get at it. Wake up, rustle. There is
no time to be lost, and every little
helps. Toot your horn and toot it
The mastodon hones now on exhi
bition iu one of the cabinets of the
Alturus hotel are well worth examina

eight feet in length. There are two
molars or grinding teeth of enormous
size, a femur or thigh bono, a kneu
cap, and several smaller hones.
They wero found in the gravel on
Snake river by somo placer miners.
