Buttes as full l promise. The wheat
is not so rank as ia this neighborhood
but it is healthy and headed out in good
sliniie. Some fields will ccrtainlv make
thirty bushels to the acre. Most of the
wheat, is too thin; and this will reduce
the general average, which, all over
that country, will be from seventeen
to twenty bushels to the acre. Barley
looks xceedingly well. Alfalfa has
been tried in several places and gives
promise of thriviug fairly. The experi
ment of farming in the Willow creek
country has proved a success. The
present crop prospects are encouraging
to the settlers and will give an eahanced
value to farms in that part of the coun
try. The Leader rejoices in their
Many years ago, so the legend runs
a party of army officers from Fort Walla
Walla, accompanied by guides and ser
vants, was jonrneyine along the trail
that then led to the Grande Ronde val
ley. The trail has almost disappeared.
Many men in those days were full of
ana pan were their ' constant compan
ions. The fitful fever of the mining ex
citement lingers still. It is no longer
epidemic; but sporadic case3 are not
nnfrcquent. The first night out the
party camped on the snmmit of a range
of hille somewhere between the Walla
Walla river and the north fork of the
Umatilla, and both these streams are
here to this dy. It was a dry camp.
rxot tar Jrora trie Halting place was a
little lake, or what had formerly been a
little lake. The exact location of this
depression is not now definitely known

being a scarcity of water, he
carried it with him the next morning
to the north fork of the Umatilla
Upon washing the dirt it panned out
fourteen dollars, or some other great
amount. The party was in the govern
ment service aud could not return. It
must have been during a Democrat ad
ministration. The party proceeded. Ia
an encounter with Indians the man who
dug the prospect hole was killed. He
is still dead . Thosa were stirring times
and he was probably soon forgotten, but
his rich find was held in sacred remem
brance by his surviving comrades.
'Twas ever thus. Ia a few years one
or two of the party returned to this
country. At least one of them settled
here. He is here yet. It was remem
bered by these men that Florence, one
of the richest camps on the coast, was
located on just such an elevated basi
as that on the Walla Walla trail that
panned out so well. Prospecting par
ties wire organized, lhe dry camp
could not be found. Tbe little lake
was lost also. It persists in staying
lost. But these men are industrious
and persevering at prospecting. The
hills along the trail are full of prospect
holes. The love of gold is potent in
the human breast. Not a summer passes
but some sanguine party prospects these
hills. Many have tried and failed. But
each vear adds new recruits to the num
ber of the faithful. He who formed one
of the original party is as hepeful as
ever. But looking for the last lake
lacked ene of the important elements
of adventure. There was little or no
danger attendaat npon it. Prospecting
parties sometimes ot gray headed men,
sometimes of sturdy youths used to
sneak off as if ashamed of their avari
cious credulity. The scene ef the search
was close to civilization and this robbed
the trip of much of its romance. The
incidental murder ef Hilton rhile on a
prospecting trip bas evidently added
the element of daDger to tbe uncertain
ty of riclies- A fresh impetus has been
given to the prospecting business. Be
sides, did not the Indians say that they
knew where there was pleuty of gold,
aud do we not know that tbe Redskins
are great prospectors and that they
never lie about such things. Here is
strong corroboration of the oldetury.
Of course there must be gold ifhero and
plenty of it, and who is afraid of Ia
disusl The conseonence of this logical
course of reasoning is that the woods
are full of prospectors. Mere than the
usual amount of interest is being taken
in the last lake. What will be the
r suit? The writer has no -stent tc d-

Out Of the madding crowd,
Away from wolfish care, .i
On the might of white-winged stream.
Away through the July glare;
What hope and promised peace,
In the stretch of the iron track.
To the north-land's wind-swept lakes.
And its hemlock shadows black.
Cast not a look behind
At the comSelds, waving black,
Or the white heat quivering o'er
The wheat-land's golden back;
And ne'er a backward thought !
Of the pulsing, dusty ways, j
Where thick walls mesh the sun,
And thrall the burning days.
But on, with deep desire, i
Where blue waves lap the shores
And jagged pines keep watch
By th' white beach evermore;;
Where Norway 'columns red,
Lift dusty arches high,
Murmurous as summer seas,
To north-land's violet sky.
There, where no axe hath cleft
In solitudes profound
The sinuous trout streams run,;
Darkling the rocks around; :j
And by some lonely lake
The red deer antlered stands,
'Mid flowering lily-pads, ,j
Beyond its hoof marked sands.
When evening's sun sinks lew, j
In deeps of rose and gold, j
When weird loons, shrills high,
In strong flight, swift and bold
When melhw whip-poor-wills j
Make sweet the thicket's gloam.
And through the clear, crisp dusk,
The whizzing night-hawks roam
Then pile the resined logs f
Till red flames flush the niirht,
And showers of sparks on high ;
Glow each tall pine alight: j
As jest or stories pass
From lip to lip with zest, ;
Like children out of school
Recline in careless rest. ' j
Then think, in blest content, j
Of summer's quivering heat, (
O'er field and' parching plain, j
And the pulsing, dusty street;
Fair gleams the forest tent
Against night's starry crown, j
And sweet its hemlock couch
As monarch's bed of down. i
Mas. M. E. Banta, in Forest and Stream,
JACK S AX'IIOK.
Little Ray Edmonds, tripping dowa
stairs in the August twilight, saw a
dark figure sitting en the doorstep, and
hesitated with a vague sense of pity
stirring in her heart.
Ray aud her father were ; boaiding
for the summer with an eld friend of
Air. Edmonds, and the figure on the
step was that of their host's son, a wild
young fellow of twenty, tall, graceful
having been ringleader in some wild
prank played iu the neighboring town
a few days before.
Ray had been a silent listener when
Mr. Grey told her father that he could
put up with Jack s lawless ways no
longer, and so had procured him a berth
on board a merchant ship which would
sail on the following day for China.
To sixteen-year-eld Ray, so loved and
petted by her father, this seemed a ter
rible thing to be separated from home
and friends, to be sent to that strange,
far-away country for an indefinite
length of time; and so she paused in
the doorway aDd looked gravely at the
youth, who, with his hands clasped
about one knee and his dark head
thrown back against the door frame,
was staring upward with wide, bright
eyes, seeing nothing and thinking unut
There was a bitter cutl on the proud
Some unaccountable impulse moved
Ray to say softly:
Do you remember your mother,
His face flushed and his lips quivered
as he raised himself to his feet before
"Oh, yes, Miss Ray; I was ten years
eld when she died."
He checked himself suddenly and be
gan to move away from the doer.
"Don't run away trom me, Jack,'' the
girl exclaimed, going down the steps
after him. "I am sorry for you, truly.
I haven't any mother, you know.though
papa is as good to me as he can be."
"Your life is not to be compared to
mine," said the young fellow, harshly.
"My stepmother thinks I am a bad lot,
and I suppose I am. It would seem
queer enough to have any one speak
well of me. 1 know I don't deserve it
"And why dou't you try to deserve
it?" asked Ray, gently. "I have been
thinking how badly your mother would
feel, were she alive, to know that you
were going so far away. Please don't
be angry, Jack but I'm afraid you
haven't done just right, and I do think
you owe it to the memory of your moth
er to be a good man."
Her falterins voice cropped into si-
The mist was rolling np from the
shore, and the clear, solemn sound of
the foe-bell at the Head was borne to
their ears on the evening air. :
The boy tossed the dark hair trom
his forehead with a quick motion natu
ral to hin, as he bent toward the young
girl, who made a pleasant picture to
look upon, with her earnest eyes, her
fair clustering hair, and her slender,
"Miss Ray, do you hear that bell! It
warns all mariners from the rocks. I
have been near the rocks a good many
times in the last two or three years,"
he shivered slightly "and you are the
first person who has taken the trouble
to warn or to pity me. There ire plen
ty to blame, plenty to prophesy that I
shall go to the bad, and I know that 1
have given them reason. But I loved
my mothers I loved my mother," he re
iterated with a hungry ewphasis "and
I have lain awake ?asny a ni?ht wih-

half proudly. "Then the next day per
haps, I would get off with soma ef the
boys and get into a scrape before I knew
it. I don't blame father for sendiag me
away. Indeed I am rather glad of the
chance to see something of the world.
But I might have gone away feeling
careless whether I did well or ill. I
dare not make any premises, but if ever
I return to America a man ef the right
sort, they may thank and bless yon for
it. I must say good-night and good
bye new, for I have to see about getting
my luggage t the city."
Ray smiled radiantly at Jack when
he held out his hand.
"Oh, I am so glad. Jack. If what I
have said to-night is any good, I shall
ha so happy." i
He laughed a little at her enthusi
asm, and said rather awkwardly:
"Miss Ray, may I will you give me
something to remember you by? A bit
He paused, thinking he had been toe
bold; lut sue caught at the idea eager
ly, and taking a tiny coral anchor from
the bunch af charms at her throat, she
fastened it to the lad's watch chain.
He watched her silently, a wistful
look gathering in his eyes, and when
the girl lifted her head and met that
gaze, she placed two white hands upoa
his shoulders and innocently raised her
mouth to receive wild Jack Grey's ado
ring, reverential, farewell caress.
Something more than seven years .la
ter, Ray Edmonds, a charming woman
with shining braids of hair and sweet
clear eyes, was spending some days of
mid-winter at an old-fashioned country
Children and grandchildren, uncles,
aunts, nephews and nieces, with a few
intimate friends, were gathered under
the nospitalible roef to celebrate the
golden wedding ef the aged couple who
had first settled there.
New arrivals came at intervals.
Outhe evening of the eventful day
Ray swept dowa into the parlor looking
exquisitely lovely in her soft, trailing
robes, the golden braids crowning right
royally the small, graceful head.
The children were playing games in
the great kitchen, and bursts ef neiny
merriment came in through the open
One of the elders glanced out and
then said with a smile:

Presently the "postmaster," a preco'
cious-looking lad of twelve, peered into
the room. '
"Is Cousin Ray here?" he asked, and
then as he espied her he annonaced
with a flourish, "a foreigu letter in the
office for Miss Ray Edmonds."
Ray, smiling graciously at the boy's
fun, proceeded to the "postoffice."
She opened the door of the little room
taken possession of by the youngsters,
entered and closed it carefully.
Then she saw, not a roguish and smil
ing little urchin as she had expected.
but a tall, broad-shouldered, bearded
man, whose dark, eager, questioning
eyes thrilled her strangely.
A faint flush crept into her fair cheek.
"I do not understand," she began fal
He lifted the dark hair from his fore
head with a quick, graceful gesture,
and like a flash her thoughts went back
to that August night seven years be'
fore, when she had given Jack Grey
her corul anchor.
Instantly her Islender hands went in
to the strong brown ones open to receive
them, and the flush on her cheek deep
ened to crimson.
"Jack! You are my foreign letter!"
"Yes, Ray. My chum's invitation to
come home with him was gladly accept
ed when I learned that yon were to be
among the guests. Ray, the memory
of your words to me when I was a wild
boy, and this little talisman, have kept
me from the rocks. It has been tbe
one ambition of my life in these years to
make myself worthy of your friendship
and your love. Will you say some
thing to me, Ray?"
For she had turned ber head aside,
aud he could see only a fair, flushed
cheek and one tiny year.
"I am net ashamed to woo yen for
my wife, Ray. If I am too late that is
my misfortune and my misery. But if
there is any hope for me, for heaven's
sake give me one little word. I am on
ly a rough sailer, dear, and have not tbe
knack of saying this sort ef thing in a
graceful way, but I love you and yon

Then Ray, smiling and blushing still,
lifted two levely, tear-wet eyes to her
lover's face, and said shyly :

who was not above peeping, presently
announced in disgusted tones that "Mr.
Grey and Ray Edmonds did not seem
to think anybody else wanted to play

out all alone."

Rice Laugtry and Sam Sample, two

have planted IS acres ef potatoes which
look well. They expect a yield of 1,000
to 1,200 bushels.
Frank Smith from Willow creek is
visiting frieuds and relatives on Cold
Spring. He tells us that the grain in
that part of the country looks well and
will average from ; fifteen to twenty
bushels per acre.
Horse racing has become quite pre
valent on Cold Spring. There will be
race Saturday, June 27th, between
Jim Clark's Buckskin mare and Cot
trel's Billy Button, i Ninety dollars is

J. G. Clark wishes to inform Horace
that the mule race that he refers to in

distant day, if he and his mule Benja

The President's House.
There are various projects entertain
ed for tbe building of a private house
for the President upon the high ground
north of Washington. This plan will
leave the present building simply to be
used as executive offices of the Presi
dent. It is not generally . known that
the White Houss was originally bnilt
of brownstone. It was called then "the
President's house," j a much better
name than the ugly one of the executive
mansion. After it was burned out dur
ing the war of 131? the brownstone was
painted white. Fr&m thr.t day it bas
been known as the W'liitc House. John
Adams was tltflfirst pre?i'i'.nt whoever
occupied this building. If. Was, hew
ever, only partially completed during
his term. The East room was not
lathed or plastered then. John Oimcyj
Adams was the first President whe oc--onrpied
it after it was resto-ed. There,
hlis been no change in it fhm thai time
until tnis, with the exception A adding
from time to time pieces of interior dec
oration or furniture. I i
Man and Woman.
In the material affairs of life it
is for the man to take the initiative
and for the woman to second his ac
tion. It is for him ta endeaver to
improve bad conditions, and for her
to make the best of what she has.
The man who would content him-
self with patiently polishing up a
few shabby old spoons when vigor
ous exertion would give him dozens
more would be a mean-spirited, un
enterprising fool who would never
gain success because he weuld nev
er deserve it. But a woman who
should leave the spoons she already
has tarnished, and; useless, because
uneleansed, while going ont of the
way to add to the amount of her al
ready neglected possessions, would
be just as far eut on the other side.
A woman who should neglect her
home and children that she might
make out of doors the money she
could save by personal superintend
ence within would be a mistake; but
the man had better go and dig his
neighbor's field for I wages than giv-
ng his time to trimming his own
home-bushes and j cutting his old
yews into fantastic shapes.
The only thing in which we can
he se id to bare any propeity are
our actions. Uur thoughts may be
bad, yet produce! no poison; they
may be good, yet produce no fruit
Our riches may Vie taken from us
by misfortune, our reputation by
malice, eur spirits by calamity, our
health bv disease, our friends by
death; but our actions must follow
us beyond tho grave. With respect
to them alone we cannot say th
we shall carry nothing with us when
we die, neither that we shall go na
ked out of the world. Uur actions
must clothe us with an immortali

are tbe only title deeds of which we
cannot be disinheritei; thev will
have their full weight in the balance
of eternity, when everything else is
as nothing; and their value will be
confirmed and established by those
two sure destroyers of all earthly
things time and death.
