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 Eagle. GAHBU.XG, 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).

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. Milton, Nov. 29th, 1880. Editors Leader: Gentemes: There is no time so ad verse to the formation of an unbiased opinion on any political topic as during the exeitement of a lively campaign. This is true also of those questions which, though not of a purely political complex ion, are apt to come up as side issues in the struggle for' political : preferment 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 broad countynor perhaps in the State wn ch gambling is not carried on in defiance of the law, and that frequently in the most open and barefaced manner, Of the many who stood aghast in holy horror at the bare idea of imposing a EASTEKS BEMX. Friend Morrison : I learn that you are frequently interrogated by persona residing east of the Rocky Mwrttung concerning the climate, soil and jrroducU of Eastern Oregon. Perhaps. few- words from your correspondent might impart some information to hem that the have not otherwise learned. . ., The , past season has certainly been rather an unfavorable one; crops being much below the average, while prices are still very low-wheat commanding but thirty-five cents per busheL There are two reasons for this; the surplus grown in many localities, and the present cost of transportation. A rail road is now being constructed between here and Portland, which, when complet ed, will afford us an outlet to the sea at a small part of the present cost. Emigrants coming here may choose cither a grain-growinrr district or a stock range. The prices for stock remain good. Some of our counties are as large as the State of Ohio, and vary much in climate owing to altitude. As a grain-producing eountry this certainly has no superior, and but few" equals. There is yet much good land to be taken under the homestead, pre-emption or timber culture acts, as well as ample opportunities afforded for purchasing, at low figures, railroad and school lands. . . Our bunch -grass is the most succulent wild giass known on the American Con tinent, and affords abundant pasturage during all seasons of the year. We are quite as well supplied with license on this iniquity not one. has in- churches and schools as many of the older vokeel the power and majesty ot t'ue law Western States, and. as a consequence, to restrain its corrupting influence on public morality. They have -, sat in silence under the shade of this giant and growing evil, raising neither hand' nor voice to impede its progress or stay its society is equally as good. . , The city of Walla .

The evil is greater to-day than it was then, and who has profited by the increase? Again, how much worse is gambling that affects only man's monetary and moral condition than the liquor business that ffects besides these his physical well being? And yet very few of those who opposed the licensing of gambling provements, and being surrounded, as it is, by the choicest agricultural country in. the State, its prospects for the future are, indeed, flattering. Persons coming here, determined to ' remain, to get possession of land and to improve it, may be sure of a good home, and a competence that will be a good friend in old age. - Our country will be permeated with would willingly see the liquor licenses railroads in a ew years coal is being l -.1 m, i ...... 1 . PO)R LaMAB. With all his guilt, we pity him still. During the week ' this unfortunate man has been tried; first,'- for robbing the TJ. S. Mail, by feloniously taking letters, be longing to different parties, out . of the 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, for one so young, doomed to enter the penitentiary for at least ten long and weary years, leter L.ajyiar, alter an, is but a foolish youth, whom strong drink has made reckless and ended his career as an attorney at law and as a man, in crime and in shame.

They claim that it is a 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 sure that this in accordance with your found in many localities; the mountain ous regions afford an abundance of tim ber, and the country is well watered, ex eept in a few districts.
