Tho ball And supper given by tho ladies' guild last Friday evening was a j success in every way. Nearly fifty dollars was realized. Dancers were present from Baker City, Union, La Grande and otlior parts of tho country.

This fowl was possessed of almost human intelligence and could be taught near ly anything, oxcopt to talk. Among her accomplishments was that of sing' ing in a good mezzo-soprano voice up on command. This hen would also, when told, go through all tho motions of scratching for food whon placed on a bare tablo or floor, but was always very indignant and scolded in a harsh voice if not properly rewarded whon her performances wore over.

Tho solicitors say that tlft) Covo is in great danger -of being almost entirely ' duihjpulated next spring as nearly ovory man thoy ap proached was intending to movo away early next year. However, the people want tho road bad and many sub scribed liberally. CORNUCOPIA. Bright outlook for the Mines and a General Air of Pronperlty Everywhere Manifest A correspondent writing to tho Ua- kor Domocrat, says: The mines of Cornucopia, novor showed up better than thoy do to-day. Jiusines is good and tho camp wear an air of general prosperity which inspires tho visitors to believe that Cornucopia lias a bright future and an assured purmaunucy. Tho O. G. M. Co. are improving their facilities for handling and work ing their ores at tho loast possible cost. Tho t mm way from tho lowor tunnel of tho Ued Jackot to the mill is almoU completed and when fin hi hod will save at least (K) cents per ton on trasnporta j tion of ores over traveling by freight I i Silverware, buns teams. In addition to this the ore bins arc built nt the mill in such ;t manner that the ores are dmpp 1 fr un tli train bucket into the bins and from the bins directly into the rock cruxher which Mives the handling of all ores by hand-car. Uy theso two improvements nt least $1.50 jver ton i saved, which j is n hiff item when it is known that the mill has crushing capacity of forty five tons per day mid ore in sight to keep it running for years. The com pany have been very fortunate in sec uring Capt. .1. U. Smith as the mana ger, and it is hoped by nil who are in terested in the success of the rump that he will remain as superintendent of the company's vast interests. To a.groat extent the camp owes its . , ... i r ' presents prosperity to the O. G. 31. Co.. . , , tor no other eomrwnv lift's spent so , . , , . . ; much money, and the Red Jacket is ', the best developed mine in the district. 1 s. W. Reers has had chargo of the J n,ino and the work is all done in the i very host style. J. L. Alborson, Thos. Turner and J. j T. Rolles are the lending merchant of tho ntC9 and they are all doing ft nice ; business. one a clean bed, Mrs. Tumor also, as proprietor of the Cornucop;a hotel, is doing a good business. Cornucopia certainly has w very bright future, and with the judicious management of many other valuable properties there it will yet bo the ban ner gold producer of Eastern Oregon.

Editor Scout : As the writer has been absent from tho burg tho greater portion of tho week, ho has gathered up but very few items. Wo were blessed with another good rain Thursday night. Wood haulers roport about three inches of enow in the mountains. Gillis Uros., formerly building super intendents of tho U. l Elevator Co., have opened up a large and complete stock of furniture at this place.

MiVs Peterson gained niKiiy friends while here and was bur icd in tho most respectful manner in tho Contervillo cemetery. M. D. What Is a Mow Sack. A dear friend of oum who lives in Honolulu has latoly "got on" to tlm tonn "mo&sback," which seems to bo entirely American in ita origin, and wishing to know its full meaning and application, ho wiote tho editor of th5 Heppencr Gazette. Eor a time we were entiroly troed, luta tramp printer happened along last week and holped us out on tho subjoct. He mid: "A mossback, my dear air, is acros between a coyoto and a cayuse with a largo per cent, of the oayiuo predominant in his make-up. tie lives, moves and has his being in nearly ovory town in tho U. H, Ho kicks at ovory improvement, raibos liiH rent, detests a boom, loves to have others boar all tho taxes, hateu a now enterprise, dctpiscs anything that smacks of progress, and won't help a tmnor if ho can help it, even when it is to his own interest. Thero are toy oral varieties of this animal, but none i aro worth much to a town and aro an a d ron o to a busy hi vo of Ih-os, and like I to turn their coats for a political ap the industrious inwet of the be family, jHjintmont.

Wxsiuxotox. D. C.. Novembers, 18S0. lSntTou Oitnuox Scout: The leading Ropublidans now in the city are busy explaining tho whole sale defeat, of Tuesday. The President . . ., . , , . . , himself is silent and refuses to talk for ... . . . .. publication as to the occasion of this .... , , . . , . " atenoo. Among his supporters and ong his support especially such henchmen as tho In dianapolis contingent, thero aro noth ing but long faces. Of course, it is natural to say that a defeat of tho ad ministration party in an off year is duo to the personal unpopularity of tho President, but that excuso cannot fully account for the result of last Tuesday. One must look further to discover tho true reason. Corporal Tanner, erstwhile Commis sioner of Pensions, with characteristic modesty, ventures tho opinion that tho result in Ohio is to be attributed to tho rage of ex-soldiers at tho way ho has been treated by tho administration, a reason most comforting to that gentle men Assistant Postniastor General Clarkson believes that fraud ruled in Virginia ami vadieal laws had disgusted tho people in Iowa and Ohio. Ho believes that Mr. Eoraker's popularity is matchless and that ho madon superb fight. All those who care to talk, and they arc not many, say that tho failure to divide all tho spoils has had a great influence upon tho rank and file of Kopublroau party workers. E.v-1 'resident Cleveland, who arrived Wednesday night to attend tho Uay-ard-Clyinor wedding and who is accom jwnicd by his wife, as beautiful as over, is delighted with tho result, and regards it as all the other politicians do from a personal standpoint. Blind to all tho surrounding circumstances, ho attri butes it all to the tariff question. Ho says, "itis evident, Ibat tho leaven of tariff reform has leavened tho wholo mass. Tho West suffering from tho unjust burden of thrift taxation, has awakened. Tho work goes on and tho people havo given their verdict Against the robbor tariff." Tho mob is no rcipoctor of pcrsans. On Tuesday night a vaut crowd surged about tho Post ibuildjng awaiting tho returns, which tsro at. tho hour all in favor of Forakor, T.o roliovo tho mon otony, the storeopti'-;ou man displayed tho pictures of well 'Known .public men. Whon tho crowd roc ognizod Grant thero woro deafening oho crs, which only in creased whon-Gurli eld's picture appear ed on tho canvas. When Cleveland's features wero displ ayed tho cheering became deafening. This continued whon tho pleasant faco of Vice-President Morton was v iowod. The opper ators had saved P resident Harrison's picture for tho last and whon it flashed upon the transpare ncy, a low murmur ran through tho cro-wd. A Jew spasm odic cheers horo and thero in the-crowd woro hoard, mingled, with hisses. Can it bo that President JTarrison is not ex actly tho god of tho common people? Tho Jtopublicans of Virginia,, of wlKm it may bo said that a grcator number are fed at the public trough than aro thus supported among the members of tho party in othor states, aro .not east down by thoir dofoat, but rathor go about tho public places tell ing of tho "splendid light" thoy miulo. Exactly what splendor is to bo attached to a tight in whi;h ono is defeated by an increased majority is hardly visiblo to tho miked eye. Tho truth is that tho voters of Virgiuia aro tired of Will iam Malionc. A boss who has nothing to offer but the chance for spoils, can not hold a largo party together becauso it is not possible for him to keop his promisos. For niuo .years Mahono, during tho Republican administration, has buon filling tho executivo dopart- t with , ltIcal j , , , ,. ... . . b-o 110 ctmi" " Virginia, WHO cared rh I I a mm Keceived at A, N. on joint ballot will be Democratic, is welomed with joy by the friends of Senator Payne. Mr. Payne- has never expressed himself definitely us to the probability of his being u candidate for re-election in the event that the legis lature should bo Democratic, but tilth) doubt is felt as to his course in such an event. He would undoubtedly seek the vindication that re-election would assure. Cot. Oliver l'ayno con- ! tnbutctl a vast sum to tno Ohio cam- paigu with probably no other view than to secure Senator Pavno's'seat to him for another term. An Indianapolis aquisition to the White House stair is a gentleman of unusual gravity and zeal of purpose, aided and abetted by a magnificent i ignorance of everything outside that enterprising city. A month or so ago thero was a reception to tho diploma-, tic corps, and toward the windup a dazzling diplomat in a wealth of gold laco asked our Indian friend to call his carriage. "Who is his whiskers with the green pants"? He asked of a fol low messenger. "Oh, the green pants", responded tho other, "that is tho Irish minister". And without further cere mony the Hoosier stepped out to tho lino of carriages and cried aloud "Tho Irish minister's carriage this way! "Thero wore a laugh of surprise among tho coachmen, while someone down the line yelled "some-body stole it." J. II. C, A PLIA Foil SCHOOLS. Sectarian Schools Entirely Uoeloss and a Monaco to Our Froe Institutions. EuiTOK Scout: With tho proposition to erect a Pres byterian seminary in tho i ity of Union, thero arises a wide and varied rango of questions to bo considered by her intelligent citizens. Tho erection of tho school, at a glanco, is a judicious and generous idea. Tho fact that Un ion is to possess an institution some thing higher in grade than tho com mon public school, is a good substan inl nilvnrtiK(mont for tho advance of tho city and her people. This is noth ing more than what every town should have. Tho question of schools and school erection is grand in itself, but thero is an objection to bo raised whon a school setting forth a mode of belief and religious doctrine is raised by a town. If tho Jpeoplo of a town want a sectarian seminary, and can raise funds to build such, it is their right to havo it, to believe in it, to patronize it; but on tho other hand, all schools aro founded for tho common good of all citizens. Thoy aro calculated to advanco tho civil onlightonmcnt of the rising race. In tho school houso and collego aro framed and formed thoso stays and props that lift tho grand superstructure of government to a model plane, and abovo tho level of tho gross intrigue and scheming fa c. tions that so often dissolvo and des' rojr tho fabric on which wo depend f jr 0U1. rights our protection. Schr lirc. designed for tho advanco 0 nim(j. Children aro sont there to fCceiVo train ing that will benefit th MU for til0 purposo of acquiring a knowledge of p system or a plan 'dn wi,jcu to ijj ftn education of worldly affairs. Tho graduate in. yollcgo is just tho child in tho wider and deeper department of datum's school, Tho school room is tho moulds whoroin are fashioned tho motors that urge upward tho march of civil granducr, of political purity and national onlightonmcnt. Thero tho finger that guides nations on to ft glorious destiny, first grasps tho pon, and tho tonguo that pours in tho aro nn, of thought, its versatile volumes of nciincss and beauty, first lisps its dmplo sentences. Thorn tho men that Uini tho wheols of commorco learn tho art of calculating gain and loss, profit and expense Bclioolsaro strictly and should bo conclusively non-roligious. When it comes to mingling tho question of re ligious belief and religious doctrino with tho highor branchos of learning, it looks like doing away with states manship and establishing in it's stead a grade of priesthood and priest-craft. Itoligionis a fireside attribute. Tho family altar is tho placo to confino tho private worship of God, if thero bo a God. At homo belongs tho ritos of worship.
