A little of Everything.
Those who write correct and elegant
English confine themselves to English
words. A violation of this is significant
ly called a barbarism. The compound
er of this Hash can read neither French
nor Latin. There are a great many other
people who are equally "unrefined"' and
"unaccomplished," and who know
equally well how annoying it is to be
come interested in an article, the pith
and point of which is lost in "Uic jacet
hiyu cult us scribendi entente," or some
other equally unintelligible word, phrase
or sentence. But it is evident that
some writers would rather be considered
learned than have their writings under
stood by the majority of English read
ers. There was a fierce fight among a num
ber of patriotic aspirants in Walla Walla
over a paltry deputy collectorship.
"Col." Parker of the Statesman was
one of the hungry candidates, and work
ed for the place with all his infatuated
energy. But, remember, he did not
want the positiou. He said so repeated
ly; aud, surely, a "Col." is an honora
ble man. Weil, he did not get the posi
tion, and now he raves about bio disin
terested service to the Democratic party
in keeping some other unworthy person
from securing it. To those who have
known the callant and modest "Col."
for years, it is necessary to state
that ever since Cleveland's election the
"Col." has been a "Simon pure" Dem
ocrat. Having been defeated in his
frantic endeavors to obtain an
office, which he did not want, he is now
lashing himself iuto an agonizing fury
about certain other offices; and, through
the distorted medium of his imbecile
anger, he actually fancies that he is
hurting some one else, and so sore is he
that he does not realize the fact that
the idea of "Col." Parker's posing as a
civil service reformer must be extreme
ly ridiculous to every intelligent man
who knows him. But the poor "Col."

It may be true that "it takes all kind
of men to make a world," but the same
cannot be truly said of building up a
town. There are some men who are of
no use, earthly or otherwise, in building
tip a town. They are a detriment, as
far as such small men can be. Take the
conceited ignoramus who yesterday was
in great exultation, boring his neigh
bors with lna a'ufeurd notions f the
town's future greatness, aud who to-day
in the sillisat despondency is i regaling
every stranger with the most, woful
tales of the town's present condiUon
and the direct predictions ot its future.
He should by ordinance be declared a
public nuisance. Take -the sour-souled
ly, socially aud every other way, who
has just sense enough to he dissatisfied
with everybody, his little self included,
who is insane enough to think he is of
suificient force aad importance to have
"everybody down on him," who is nev
er satisfied with what anybody else
does, who curses the town because of bis
owu inability to gtt along well, aud
who stoops to the lowest resorts in his
futile ettorts to "get even -with the
blank place." It requires no ordinance
to suppress him. He is always down
low down. Then there is the mau who
attempts to do business on the spider
priuciple. He spreads his net in some
dark corner, that is, avoids publicity by
not advertising, waits tor the unwary,
unsuspecting flies, that is, people who
never read newspapers, and when they
stumble into his den sucks the life blood
out of them by exorbitant charges.
Sometimes, though not often, through
peculiar force of circumstances,
one of these spiders becomes
bloated with ill-gotten gains; hut being
devoid of local pride, or energy he sim
ply hoards his wealth and spends his
time in abusing his victims and cheat
ing the taxgatherer. The hungry spi
ders, and small as they are they are al
ways hungry, talk o dull times, abuse
the place, and are cliracic growlcr9.
These are a lew samples of men who
do not help to build up a town. The
last mentioned are the ones who do
most to retard it3 progress. They are
cumberers of the ground. The others
arc too insignificant to be obstruction
ists, even vhen thut is their aim. 15ut
in the m'arcli of progress the spiders
get brushed aside and are forced to get

To the editor of the Leader: -i
1 lett Weston August 2d t get a lit
tle nearer sundown, actuated by my
Puritanic blood which, since the days
of Miles Standi th, has been flowing
westward, likethn "Star of Fcpire,'
and now I am ntif enough to see old
Sol, as he sinks i lto the Pacific, wake
his mark tin the bosom of Paget' tioiiud.
15y private conveyance we ifach Mil
ton Saturday evening, and as we slowly
move over the dusty road I feast my eyes
on the prosperous scene spread out be
fore me, on the Umatilla plains, one
continuous wheat field extending as far
as the eye can reach in every direction,
telling me phtiuly that I am about to
leave a trood country, one in which the
people ought to be happy tilling the soil
and worshiping God. Spend Sunday,
Monday and Tuesday in Milton, visit
ing old frienJs, aud Wednesday take
the train, arriving at Walla Walla,
fr&m whence at 9 p. m. wc leave on the
Portland train. I get myself comforta
bly arranged for a good sleep when the
train stops and the conductor yells:
"Wallula. Junction! Change cars for
Umatilla, Portland aud all points on
the Oregon Short Line!" Now conies
the rush of passengers, both old and
young, tall and short, lean aud corpu
lent, all rushing to get the best seat,
like so many .school boys on the "first
day." After considerable enquiring of
brakeman, newsboy, Pullman porter,
etc., all sieceed in getting on the right
train, although one old lady after find
ing a seat seems to doubt, aud asks "if
this car goe3 to Alkali." When as
sured that it does she don't believe it,
for it is headed the wrong way, (this re
minded me of B. F. Taylor's "World
on Wheels") and when we began to
move backwards she wa3 very much
excited, and it took fourteen passeugers,
more or less, the Pullman porter and
several other dignitaries to quiet her.
Now we begin to move down the Co
lumbia, and as it is dark I again take
myself to sleep, and as I get one eye
asleep the the steam whistle gives a
screech, the train ceases to move and
the brakeman announces "Umatilla
I Junction! Change cars for Huntington
I and all points on Short Line!"
j Nothing farther happens to break the
j monotony of car riding until daybreak.

Tbcriis an excursion party aboard,
T'his consists of rti
o.d mau from IlhuohV, a young man, Ol
so very youug, with, spectacles, from
Dakota (th:t is. the 1 nan, and perhaps
the spectacles), a mid die-aged man from
the WTillainette valley , and two ladies
one old one and a i young one from
New York. This constitutes the sum
total of the Alaskan f, arty.
The old man is a very wise man, at
least he thinks so, ani l I am inclined to
believe ha knows gome things he
knows how to hragg t'.ll Illinoisans do.
He was very anxious ti- know if. there
were anyi other passengers on the train
belonging to the Alaskan- excursion, and
when it was suggested bj' the Willam
ette man that the old man canvass the
train, he objected for two reasons one
was that he was a Democrat and it
might seem too officious in hita to do no,
as that party was now in power; the
other reason he did not teU us.
At G:20 we stop at Taco na. The
brakeman announces, "Paoific Avenue!
Tacouia passengers leave cam! Sound
passengers keep your seatsj" As I con
sidered myself a Sound passenger
sound in body, sound iu mind, sound in
politics, etc. I kept my sesvt. In a few
minutes we reach the w'aarf. and take
the steamer for Seattle. As. we move
dwn the bay we have a :fine view of
Tacnina, The most conspicuous object
is the Tacoma House th at temple of
extravagance,, the white elephant of the
Northern Pacific. It reniiixds one of
some old castle on the Rhine. In full
view is the Anna,, Wright Se Quinary, a
beautiful building situated on the high
bluff between ")ld and New Tacoma.
At the old town are several vessels load
ing with lumber. Two large ships are
loading with coal at the "bunkers."
Lumber and coalr-the chief industries
of Puget Sound. Puget Sound is the
mwt .beauti'iul 'sheet of water that 'I
have ever genn. ,--7to-tshS"''if3' Surface'"
as smooth glass, and the land on eith
er side is covered with a luxurious
growth of evergreens, thus forming one
of nature's grandest sights.
Arrived at Seattle at 10 p. m., very
tired and sleepy, but well p leased with
what I have seen.

Beware ot debt. No work is so hard,
no work is so discouraging as working
to pay debts. Nothing is so easily

A newly-married couple wen en
route to Washington by the Baltimore
& Ohio Railroad. There are many tun
nels on this road en the other side of
the Ohie river. All through Ohio, the
face of the young man shewed looks
of pain, despite his great joy. He
seemed to want something. Apparently
he yearned. .
Over in West Virginia the train fil
tered a tunnel. Upon emerging into
the light, the young man's face was
seen to wear a studious expression. He
was thinking. At first he seemed per
plexed, then interested'then triumph
ant; He had had a revelation'. Then
he smiled with a firm, manly, continu
ous smile and his eyes peered ahead for
the first sign of a yawning cavern in
the mountain side. ,f
' T'u biide was happy and rleraure.
Whish shadow rumble darkness!
The veil is drawn. It is another tun
nel. Light again, and the young man
looks happier than ever. The bride's
