As on the steps they sat in bh's", One Milliliter evening fair, lie claimed from her a lover's kNs Eor every falling star. The fair one llrst demurred to this, As became a modest maid. Hut what damsel e'er refused to kis When a darling lover prayed ? Her warm heart even prompted her To call her sweet-heart's eyes To every falling meteor That llashed along the skies. And when a lire fly chanced to flare Atliwart that Milliliter sity "There goes another falling star," Tlie artless maid would cry. At length her bright eyes saw a star, On the horizon beaming, Dancing and Hitting front afar, Xow lost then brightly gloaming. She got him down to steady gains By that illusive ray 'Twas hut a lantern switching train About two miles away. -H. 0. H. FOREST DELL DOTLETS. PlKK V.U.I.KY, Nov. L';t, 1S89. First snow storm of any consequence to day. A couple of inches fell, but is melting rapidly. Bert Curry, who recently had his breast bone seriously injured by the fall of a horse, is around again. Mr. John Irwin, who sold his farm of SO acres, a short time since, to a Mr. Ora, of Cornucopia, for $1000, has departed with his family for his old homo in Nebraska. We are informed by Mrs. Lama Ir win, who returned not long since from the funeral of her daughter, Miss Em ana Laura Coggan, of Tacoma, that although her daughter died Tuesday morning and she did not arrive in Tacoma until Friday morning, that she was still in time to attend the funeral which took place that after noon. All arrangements for tho fu neral were made before tho mother ar rived and were in harmony with tho mother's wishes as well as with tho circumstances of the youthful heiress thus cut down in the bloom and beauty of early womanhood. All that kind ness and sympathy could do was done to comfort the mother, who finds a melancholy pleasure in the thought that all that money and sympathizing friends could do was done to minister to her only daughter's last hours on earth. When Miss Coggan visited her home in Pino this summer she looked unusually well. One can scarcely realize that she sleeps now in tho silent tomb; truly has tho ioet said of Doath : "We know when moons shall wane, When .Summer birds from far shall cross the sea, When Autumn's hue shall tinge the golden grain, But wlx) shall teach us wJien to look for thee?" Mr. Wallaco Stalker, brother of A. R. StaJker of Halfway, recently arrived here from tho Willamette valley. Wo learn Unit Mr. Stalker has purchased forty acres adjoining tho little town of Halfwaj', of Mrs. Lloyd, for tho sum of $800, and will make that his future home. Married. At tho residenco of the bride's mother, Nov. 10, by Rev. Ira Wakefield, Presiding Elder of the M. E. church, Miss Susio Lloyd, of Pine, to Mr. A. W. Parker, of Eaglo valley. Miss Lloyd was ono of our handsomest and moat estimable young ladies. Mr. Parker is a successful teacher and prosperous farmer of Eagle valley, but for nil that tho beaux are growling around, saying, "What business hud ho to como over here and tako ono of 'our girls'?". However, all unite in wishing them smooth sailing on the nea of Matrimony. Mr. John McFndden, while working on a building a short timo ago, met with a serious accident which resulted in the loss of an eye. Ho was driving a nnil when ho probably gave it an ac cidental slanting stroke causing it to fly, and striking him in tho eyo burst tho eyeball. Could tho silicon) sympa thy of friends avail to restore his eye sight, it would bo restored. Itemizing is like you say, Mr. Edi tor: "No editor or correspondent can get all tho items going, unaided." Sometimes wo think thero isn't much to write, and in a retired place lilo this, and not "rustling for itoniH," wo don't always hear what there is until Silverware, Guns it is old. Poople know we corr.poad for Sconr. if they care towo nutrii ngos, births, death, etc, anionu the items to SrotT, it might not he n'ni- to let us know, unless tliry prefer t send them direct to the editor. And now Rumor My the king is not only "in the parlor et)tttitt out his money" to see if ho has enough to set up in housekeeping, but thit ho has already, on the sly, taken unto himself a queen of his heart and homo. Don't know how true it is, but just think it awful mean if he has. No chance for the fellows to charivari ("Miiveree") or the reporter to r port him until late in the day.

Services will bo held at Ascension , church Thanksgiving Day by Rev, Mr. Powell. i Everyone is going to tho thanks 1 giving ball at the Cove hull. Mrs. A. j J. Foster will furnish tho supyrr unit ; that speaks volumes. j Tho butcher shop has undergone a ! change of proprietors, Messrs, Keen & Haggcrty now being tho knights of tho cleaver. Tho teachcis and pupils of tho pul lie school are preparing for an enter tainment to be given at tho hull dur ing tho holidays. The young turkeys in Cove hao formed a trust and not one could be induced to partcko of a grain of corn for over a week. The result is thoy are not fit to kill and are granted u longer lease of life. Tho swine crop is ripe and is being gathered and cured. John Wagner sold a choice lot of hogs for 4 centH. Other transactions have taken place at 3 1-2 to 'I .'!;" cents per pound on foot. Mr. Win Sterling paid Covo friends a brief visit this week, lie is on his way east to see his father who is ueri ously ill. Win says he can't throw off on Oregon, so invested in a round trip ticket. There is some talk of arranging for a public Christinas treo in Cove. Wo havo musical talent, plenty of children and a good ball, so why not enjoy fes tivities appropriate to tho holiday sea son. Who will make a atari and start tho ball rolling? Win. Makin, of Wallowa county, has sold his farm near tho red bridge on tho Sand Ridgo to .Mr. A. II. Con ley at the rate of $lf per acre, amount ing to $l,Slf). Mr. Conloy has also bought of M. 15. Roes 200 acres lying adjacent at .$20 per aero. Mr. Eugene Holmes has renigned his position us manager of O. P. Jay cox's mercantile estubluhment and will accept a clerkship in the AL & M. Co's. storo at Island City. Henry Jaycox and Guy Ilridges aro now measuring calico at Jayeox's. The timb has como when tho old cow with one horn and a mild eyo standcth by the side of tho store and keeps careful watch for tho farmer to drivo in that she may climb into his vehiclo and modestly aaiist herself to whatever surplus food in the way of wild grass, hay, or an occasional cab bage or turnip ho may havo brought with him. Probably tho first' traction engine over seen in Covo steamed up main street Friday. It was Minnfpk'a wood , sawing outfit, and as it came puffing ! through town many thought it was I Hunt's train and that a day of deliver-; anco had at last como.

EirtToR Onr.csox Scorn With the rain fulling in a steady and relentless Hood nnd the wind sobbing j through the naked branches of the a it. -p . ..e it... , j tmivertity of America was dedicated on Wednesday. The ambitious pro - gram of outdoor exercises had to be I abandoned, but the interior cerenio ' nies lasted all day. The crush was tremendous. At 10:30 o'clock Cardinals Gibbons ; and Tascherenn nnd a large retinue of priivta arrived by special train and shortly afterward began the exercises. 1 Cardinal Gibbons, in his robe's of scar j let, heading a long procession of dis tinguished prelates, first blessed the ! building, sprinkling holy water on tho I walls and followed by a great choir ! chanting the "Miserere." Tho eernio ( nies seemed interminable. ' At the conclusion of the dedicatory ', services, the dignitaries of tho church ! and invited guests to tho number of I three hundred, repaired to the athletic , hall beneath tho chapel. Tho two Cardinals mt side by side. To their ; right sat Rev. .Mgr. Satelli, swarthy, j alow, dignified, tho Papal envoy. To ' their loft smiled the familiar face of j Secretary I'laine, Secretaries 'Windom, ! Noble, Tracy, Rusk and Proctor and I Attorney-General Miller. Postmaster i General Wanainaker's absence seemed i conspicuous. Tho fust toast was "Ilia (Holiness Popo Leo Nil I." Mgr. Sa J telli responded in Latin, which of course only the clergy understood well enough to appreciate. A wild burst of applause greeted Mr. Blaine when ho arose to respond to the toast of "Our Country and tho President." Tho speech was very carefully prepared and tho speaker took care to avoid any strong eulogy of tho Roman Catholic church. It was an ondotsement in a goneral way of morality and education and religious liberty. Very clever, Mr. Iilaine. While Cardinal Tascherean wis speaking in French of "Sister Univer sities," President Harrison entered the hall and was greeted with iinnienso cheers. He was followed by Vice President Morton and Mrs. Morton. The president boro the expression that is generally attributed to a feline in a strango garret. Tho audience insisted upon a speech and in a few short hal ting sentences Mr. Harrison thanked them for their warm reception. It was a characteristic speech, spoken only in a sense of deep duty, and fell on the enthusiasm of tho crowd like a wet sponge. A child might have known that tumpost-tossed seas of old preju dice stirgod between tho speaker and hi hearers. After an iniinonso deal of painting and plastering and remodeling and furnishing, the old Seward mansion is again occupied and onco more by a secretary of state. Mr. Rlaiuo and his family moved in lust week. Tho de cidedly old fushionen exterior has only been changed by enlarging tho win dows. Inside changes necessary for extensive entertaining have been effec ted. The furniture is magnificent. Tho hougu is full of ghosts. From its windows, when it was a club houso, Barton S. lvey often signalled Mrs Gen. Sickles, and almost in front of it Sickles waited for Key to emergo and shot him to death. In tho very iooiii now occupied by tho Secretary of Stuto came tho assassin Payno to kill Seward, who lay ill in bed and who ciinie so near meeting his death that fateful April night nearly thrco decades ago. Tho International Amercan Associa tion oxournion parly steamed into the Pennsylvania Station Wednesday even ing after an ubsonco of forty-two-days.

A LECTURE Recently Dolivorod by J. Newman, of North Powdor. Wo publish by request the following lecture recently delivered by Mr. J. Newman. Ho said : L.iiiiKfeANn Gknti.kmkn: 1 wish to. tell you some things I heard and saw at the convention of tho Oregon State Secular Union held at Portland, Ore gon lust month. The object of this convention was to organizo what they call a State Secular Union, which was accomplished with great enthusiasm. Thoy propose next to havo county or ganizations and then town organiza tions. They had some of tho ablest speakers, both men and women, that California, Washington and Oregon could produce, and some from tho eas tern states. California and Washing ton, no doubt, will bo the noxt to or ganizo. The object of this organization is to oppose tho union of church and state. Mon and wonion of every faith and creed may join it. As I said, tho main object of tho or ganization is to maintain thu entire separation of church and state, and cultivate a lovo of liberty, of truth, jus tice, equity and country. Perhaps in the days of Saul tho son of Lish, tho first king of Israel, is tho first instance wo havo of tho connection of church and state, and it worked badly with Isreal from that timo on as long as sho was a nation. In spito of all tho prophets could Bay and do tho kings would go to battle. They would say, "Theso men of God prophesy evil," and two or thrco kings would get to gother and hold a council and say, "Wc can whip them anyway," and nino times out of ton thoy would got badly defeated. I do not know of a nation to-day in which church and state is not more or less connected except tho United States, and it appears there is somo effort being made to accomplish that in tin's country. Ono speaker in tho convention said' ho had beou put into prison in tho eastern states for not believing, and another man was put in tho same pris on for believing. When men aro put into prison for their religious opinions or belief, it looks as though church and state was getting very closo togethur. Thoy say tho declaration of indo poud'tneo is tho first declaration of Free Thought over given to the world, and must remain inviolate. They say .ye aro not afraid of free thought, but we are afraid of thought, bound, They had a beautiful banner on tho platform with tho inscription, "Uni versal Mental Liberty." That, frionds, Contiiiufd on lait pnyf. Gardner & Co's.
