Samuel Neat, one of Boston's wealthy
young men, Las been mulcted $3,000 in
a breach of promise suit and subjected
besides to the reading in the court of bis
love letters, which were addressed like
this: "My own and only precious little
sweetheart,'' "My own dearly beloved
loved one," "My own beloved one," and
"Sweet, precious darling." Mr. Long
fellow was so affected by the fate ot this
gentleman that he at once composed the
following beautiful and intensely practi
cal verses, which should be pasted in the
hat of every young man in the country :
In the twilight aolemn gloaming
Stood a maiden youn; and lair,
Watching anxioiuly (or tome one
Who was certainl? not there.
Long she peered into the darkness.
Whl'.e her mind was fraught with (ears.
And her heavy hanging eyelids
Showed the marks of recent tears.
Oh, the woe that wonun suffer ;
Oh, the heart-aches and the pangs;
Only partially atoned for
Br her bangles and her bangs.
Faithless man, come to the maiden
Who is waiting there tor you.
Clasp her gently to your bosom
Te l her s.ie is life to you.
Let her rest upon your kneecap,
Sitting in the old arm chair,
While the end of your coat collar.
Tangle 5ently in her hair.
,; "I don't see the use of making such a
fuss over a thing you don't really need,"
sobbed Mrs. Spoopendyke through her
indignant tears. .
"Oh, you don't !" raved Mr. Spoopen
dyke. "You don't see any use putting
things where they belong, either, do- you!
How d'ye s'pose I'm going to know when
it's my turn to show what Christianity
has done for me unless you can tind that
dod-gasted book for me between now and
the resurrection J" and Mr. Spoopen
dyke spun round on his heel like a ' top,
knocked Over a Parian jar.
"Wait a minute, my dear," said Mrs.
fpoopendyke, Lokiag at hiui earnestly.
Then she went behind him and fUhed out
the prayer-book.
"Got it, didn't you," he growled.
"Had it all the time, I s'pose. Where
was it, anyway?"
"In your coat-tail pocket, dear," and
Mrs. Spoopendyke jabbed the powder
purl' in her eyes, and stalked down stairs,
leaving her lipge to follow. Brooklyn
Flay it fine, mi-guided creature;
Tell the maiden on your knee
That to you a guardian angel
Will her love forever be.
Then be sure to get your letters,
(On this point depends your fate).
For in case you shake the maiden
She may choose to litigate.
Never let a heartless jury
Sec those notelets where you say
That the girl's your tootsey pootsey;
For it gives you dtad away.
When you have those precious missives
Burn thtm, ere the sun ha set.
Then steer clear of guileless maidens.
And you may be l.appy yet. ,

"Now, dear," said Mr. Spoopendyke,
cheerfully, "be lively. It's twenty min
utes past ten, and we rousn't be late at
church. Most ready!"
"Yes, dear," beamed Mrs. Spo-.pen-dyke,
"I'm all ready. Got everything?"
"I think so. Hymn-book, umbrella,
and where's that prayer-book. I haven't
got the prayer-book."
"Where did you leave it!" asked
Mrs. Spoopendyke, turning over the vol
umes on the table .hurriedly.
"If I knew where I left it, I'd strut
right' to the spot and get it," retorted
Mr. Spoopendyke. "I left it with you.
Whre did you leave it? Can't you re
member what you do with things?"
'I haven't seen it since last Sunday,"
returned Mrs. Spoopendyke, faintly. "I
know," she continued; "perhaps it is at
church." '
"Perhaps it is," mimicked Mr. Spoop
endyke; "perhaps it got up early, took a
bath, and went ahead of us. Did you
ever see a prayer-book prowl off to church
all alone? .Ever see a prayer-book h'ist
up its skirts, and strike out for the sanc
tuary without any escort? S'pose a
prayer-book knows the difference between
a church and a ham sandwich? Where
did you put it."
"I mean you my have left it in the
pew-rack. You know you did once,
suggested Mrs. Spoopendyke.
"I didn't anvthing of the sort. I
brought it home and gave it to you.
Where, did you keep it? What did you
do with it? S'pose I'm going to swpsh
around throuh the service without know
ing whether they are, doing the Apostles'
Creed or an Act of Congress? Spring
around and find in, can't you? What are
you looking for? Don't you know the
difference between a prayer-book and
the 'Wandering Jew ? find it, xant you?"
"Never mind it, dear," fluttered Mrs.
Spoopendyke. "I know all tbe responses
and I'll help you along."
"Oh, yes, you know 'em all. All you
know about religion wouldn't wad a gun.
All you want is a bell and a board fence
to be a theological seminary. Think you
can find that prayer-book between now
and the equinoctial?" howled Mr. -Spoopendyke.
"Got any idea whether you
sold the measly thing for china vases, or
stirred it into the sweet-cake 1 Have I
len chewing divine grace all morning?
Where's that prayer-book? Going to
get that prayer-book before the Revela
tions come to pass ?" and Mr. Spoopen
dyke plunged around the room, tumbling
J books about and breathing heavily.
The much mooted question involved in
the granting of benefits intended by the
act of June 15, 1880, which refers especi
ally to the right of all persons who had
taken a homestead prior to June 15,
1880, has at last been decided by the De
partment in that the homesteader can,
if he so desires make proof ' by the pay
ment of 1 25 per acre in cash or by
Special Deposit Certificates at his option,
at the same rates less the amount of fees
which hud been paid at date of entry.
It is also further decided that all home
steads taken prior to the date of the
above act, whether settled upon now or
not, abandoned as well as homesteads
actually resided upon, can now be paid
at $1 25 per acre less the fees paid at
date of entry as above stated. This de
cision virtually leaves the homesteader in
position to buy the homestead, even if be
has abandoned it, and no further settle
ment is required. Applying only to the
advantage of those whose claims were
taken prior to June. 15, 1880, the many
whose claims were taken subsequent need
not expect or attempt to take advantage
of it. Great complaint has been occa
sioned by this recent decision, and it is
possible an attempt will be made to have
the act repealed thereby depriving all
those who have neglected in having their
homesteads paid for before of the benefits
intended by the act, and which repeal if
possible can only be taken advantage of
by an immediate proof on all the home
steads possible.

During the canvass preceding the June
election Mr. J. O. Franklin of Lena, a
gentleman of more than ordinary ability
and undoubted integrity, broached the
subject of licensing gambling. This was
in his speech at Heppner. I do not
know how the matter was regarded at
that end ot the county. Uut its an
nouncement here created quite a diver
sion. The idea of licensing gambling
was too heinous to receive an impartial
onsideration. Many good men were
terribly shocked at the proposition. Even
those who occasionally venture a little
were severe in its denunciation. . The
personal and political opponents of Mr,
Franklin did not hesitate to make capital
out of it, though none of them can be
less addicted to the vice or more opposed
to it than he is. But Mr. Franklin lost
votes on the issue. Now how does the
case stand? There is not to-day, in all
probability, a town or hamlet in all our

has been tried; first,'- for robbing the TJ.

postoffioe, among which was a check for
$343 03 in favor of W. N., Smith, of
Waitsburg, and Thich it-seems he was
about to convert into coin and appropri
ate to his own use. He was found
guilty as -charged in, thej indictment.
Next he was tried for grand larceny,
charged with having robbed Mr. McCam
mbn of about $85 in coin and a revolver.
The evidence in this, as in the previous
case bore hard against the accused, while
his defense was very lame. In the IT. '
S. Mail robbery he stated that he found
the letters, but it was too thin. In the
second trial he tried to make it appear
that he was drunk and knew not what
he was doing, but it sems the Ju Ige and
Jury thought it was about time for him
to learn right from wrong and he was
again found guilty as charged in the in
dictment. He has been also indicted for
forgery, but that case perhaps will be
quashed. It is enough, heaven knows,

restraint upon the business, as well as a
rich source of revenue. It seems to me
that those who discriminate between
the two are making a distinction without
difference, and a distinction that works
to the detriment of all but the gambling
trickster. If it is just and proper to
license liquor dealers why is it not
equally just and proper to tax gamblers
in the same way? Gentlemen, I am not
