Bill Dumpman began to miss

the "calf bro'vpin 2 around there,

the light of a deadly enemy to the

be required of the voters of this
next eiect:on. -A good idea woJlIng r..se, cried and fell, and Bill
uc ti yinvr. vii nic iiuuub wie wiirus. I allied
"f or an euut&tinnal qualification
requiring every voter to be able to
write his nnme at dread any sec
tion ot the Constitution in toe Eng
lish language," or against it. It
not seen what value to the elector
ate a man can be who can't write
his name, and read in English a
section of the Constitution that
maybe selected. A rule of that
kind ought to encourage those
, whose early education has been neg
lected to quality theinselvps lor tru
. duties of ftitizenship. The adu?
who cannot reaj -or write can lv a
dftermrned eflorv speedily inquire
. thoKe accomglithmcnt?. It is too
much tlt-ftuSlthtv to believe! thai
tH? illiterate person cannot improve
himself no mattr to what age he
has attained. It is generally be
lieved that tp this inquiry a thun
dering response in the affirmative
will be returned. But that alone
will not bring about the change. A
constitutional amendment setting
up the new rule will subsequently
have to be formulated and submit
ted to the people for ratification.
It is ot interest to review the his
tory of early events in Oregon. The
Salem Statesman is authority for
the statement that George Winslow
was the first colored man to reach
Oregon. He came .from California
in 1834 , with Ewing Young. In
1810 the ship Albatross, from Bos
ton, entered the Columbia river
and sailed up as high as Oak Point,
when the captain erected a house,
after having cleared the land. So
far as any record goes this was the
first houi built in Oregon. Lee,
Parker and Whitman were the first
missionaries. They came in an
swer to a call from the Indians made
in 1832. The first printing press
tionrom the American board of
foriegn missions in the Sandwich
islands to the mission of the board
of Oregon. It reached its destina
tion at Lapwai and was put in
operation by E. O. Hall, who print
ed hooks in theNez Perce language.
Both Mr. Spaulding and Mr. Rogers
-soon learned to set type. This was
if?".i and this same press is now

Dr. Geo. A. Betlirine, State Cliemist
of the State of Washjnuton, has examin
ed the various baking powders of the
market, and p peaks' emphatically as to
whirh he considers the best. He says:
. A aerie" of carefully made tests of the
.hakiiijf powders sold in this market
i-hows that the Royal yields the largest
perci rt.-ge of leavening gas. This pow
lt-r is hisq found free from any harmful
o" even Objectionable, ingredients; itw
constituents' are of exceptional purity,
so combined that the powder produces
tlie purest and most wholesome food.
There is, therefcre, no question but
the Royal is the strongest, purest acd
most wholesome baking powder in the
market. Geo. A. Bethune,
