The Dog Days and Hens, and Things.
The time of year has arrived when
youth becomes preternaturally buckled
with the colic the green fruit season.
The small boy scans askance the neigh
bor's cherry tree, aud calculates on the
peaceable disposition of his dog. He
eyeth the plum calculating when Dam
soon, Green Gage and Golden Drop shall
fall into his set fly-trap, and the verdant
apple, just tinged with the dawn of a com
ing rieness, fchall add to the exasperated
condition of the coat of his stomach;
meanwhile the anxious mother gathereth
together her store of jalap, paregoric and
pills, awaiting the climax or her cherub's
gorge, and ready to administer an anti
dote for a bursting angel; thus the hot
hottens, paper shirt collars wilt dur
idg the morning hour, leaving a drear
stretch of the day to necks weltering in
limp shirt tops (we refer to mankind);
woman's figure is shadowed through thin
twenty yards to the dollar calico, and it
isn't fashionable to wear stockings. Its
effect on that other feminine curiosity is
peculiar: hens set brick-bats are just as
comfortable for them as eggs, and if
neither is to be found, they incubate on
the bottom of a board, and would be just
as contented at the birth of a lumber-yard
as of a brick-kiln or stone-quarry. Jtis
noticed, however, that after two months'
patient setting on stone, they have more
of a look of in-quarry on their couute
teance than when cultivating bricks. They
give more trust tothe future on these, and
if, after months of weary waiting, the
legs cram pod, and the breast bone worn
through, there seems to be no result from
such industry, ifc is not bo wondered at
if tho hen concludes that this kind of nest
biding is not what it is cracked up to be
Tho only consolation left to her is to know
she has ' passed through the laze of Sum
mer with a virtuous object in view, and it
being through the time when eggs are
cheapest, she feels that she has done her
owner but little harm, saved herself much
misery, and falls to business again with a
good appetite. Eet us learn from the hen
to hatch out our plans at a time if we
can when labor isn't worth anything.
But after the languid days of Summer
comes the glorious benediction of tho
night: the fervid glow of the noon-time
pales to the mellow influence of sunset,
and then the quiet light of the stars in tho
cool balm of the evening energizes tho
languid pulse of nature into the
rippling of a limpid stream, re
newing us for the discomforts of the mor
row, and carrying our thoughts away
from the stagnant pools of the day-dream
in a progression onward to where the river
of time blends with the ocean of eternitv.
and all are swallowed up in the depths of
tne measureless nereaiter so musing, we
iau asieen, leaving tue coiicued boy, the
setting hen, men and women, and
other things to work out their destinv.
each for themselves, while we snooze the
uncomfortable hours away.
That Oregon City Sport.
EDrron Enterprise : It frequently
happens that persons who think them
selves shrewder than others get outdone
in the way of perpetrating pranks, or
playing games of deceit. A sharper of
Oregon City, paid a flying visit to Canby
on election dav . in order to extricate a few
"twenties" from the pockets of the
greenies of that place, by lietting on the
success of tho Republican candidates; but
it was not long before the sharper was
out-sharped by a friend vho was willing
to " buck the tiger," or some other beast,
for the sum of twenty. The Canby friend
suggested that he would be willing to put
up a " roll " which he held in his hand
against a double eagle, which oiler the
sharer readily accepted, and the stakes
were immediately deposited in the hands
of a holder. Now the joke comes in right
here: while the sharper was trying to in
duce some one to bet with him' the Canby
friend had stepped out, borrowed several
small iron washers, rolled them so as to
icsemble a twenty-daliar roll of silver,
returned ami made the oiler, which was
accepted. As soon, however, as the
sharper was informed concerning the con
tents of the roll," his piide wilted like a
pumpkin leaf in July, ami he was sud
denly sti nek with the idea that his valua
ble services were ncccicd in Oresron City.

Sittii errand's Campaign. Aide-de
camp Thos. Sutherland has published a
history of Howard's campaign aganst the
Nez Perce Indians, and details at lencrth
the conduct of the campaign, from its" be
ginning in Camas Prairie to its termina
tion a thousand miles awav to tho head
waters of the Missouri. It makes a verv
readablepamphlet.andwe would ad vise all
our readers t. procure it. Tom writes in a
free and off-hand style, and. in most res
pects, is inimitable. Tom is of a warlike
race, and he illustrated that trait of char
acter in a remarkable degree on his first
week's arrival in our city. Some ot tho
l)oyt imagined he was not true gric; and
the result was a scrimmage, in which Tom
cameout notvictorious.but full tooverflow-
mg with perseverance, a few days after
wards some how or othertherewasanother
rumpus, and loin s stai was in the as
scendant: by the end of the week there
was another difference of opinion, and.
somehow, Tom again crossed the Rubicon
and burned his boats. By this time he
Itegan to make inquiry as to the manner
and morals of Western people, and
whether or not such occurrences were in
digenous to tho soil. However, as the
bo vs learned that Tom would fight, from
that time all was quiet on the Potomac,
and when the alarm of war was sounded
on the frontier, who should buckle his
sword from these peaceful vales but Tom,
and, "away to the war he goes," and
gathered laurels of epistolary and mili
tary fame in that celebrated campaign.

Clear, Creek Camp Meeting. Rev.
John Flynn, writing from Clear creek,
says: "The campmeeting on Clear creek
will commence Wednesday, July 11th,
and continue over the next Sabbath.. The
ground is pleasantly situated, hear the
town of Viola, Clackamas county, twelve
miles back from Oregon City, or Marsh
field ; both air and water pure and good.
Our brethren and friends from Portland,
Oregon City and Canbv, will find this a
pleasant and healthful retreat in which to
worship God for a few days in the tented
grove. All are cordially invited."
Cacgitt an Otter. Two young men,
while coming down from the falls in a
small boat last Tuesday, succeeded in
catching a young animal, with which they
have been mystifying the knowing ones
aiiout town. According to the answers
they received to the question, "What is
it 7" it is either a beaver, sea lion, seal,
walrus, panther, dog, or something else.
At last old Indian George came along and
gave tho information that it was an otter.
How is This for High. Mr. A. R.
Stroup, of Boone's Ferry, called last Mon
day, and gave us a look at some speci
mens of, his rye crop, which measured
eight feet, eight inches in height. He has
ten acres of rj'e, and the entire piece will
measure eight feet in height. The pros
it? for crops of every description in the
vicinity of Boone's Ferry never were bet
ter, and the farmers are happy.
Going to Astoria. Prof. W. L. Wor
thington, principal at the Seminary for
two years past, has been offered the same
position at Astoria, with a larger sal
ary than he has received here; and we
understand that the offer has been ac
cepted. Mr. Worthington was principal
ol the Astoria school for several years,
and his services are highly appreciated.

O think of me when light of morning
Proclaims the day;
When fhxHls of sunlight bathe the woodlands
And kiss the dews away.
Remember, then, there's one whose bosom
Only throbs for thee :
When morning floods of suniinht glisten,
O remember inc.
O think of me when folds the evening
Its robes of balm -,
When stars hiirh up In heaven whisper.
And shines the moon so calm.
Remember, then, there's one whose dreaming
Ever is of thee :
At morn, at noon, at eve's declining,
0 remember me.
When clouds of sorrow hover o'er thee.
And press thee down ;
When fortune's star grows dim around thee,
And fate doth on thee frown.
Remember, then, in joy or sorrow,
1 am true to thee :
Where'er o'er earth thy footsteps wander
O remember me.

Xow digs the boy the garden plot
With energy Intent,
Until he bags a tribe of worms.
And then he skips the fence.
Then off he scoots to where the stream
lot,h ever gently swish ;
And with much patience, and his hooks,
Enticeth sundry fish.
And then with slow and wary steps,"
Homeward doth he wend
When he is led to a back shed,
And frightful cries ascend.
To save ye small boy's breeches back
From gouge and hard Indent,
Iiet him, before he flshward track.
Procure his dad's assent.
Successful Affair. The Sunday
School excursion and picnic to the Cas
cades last Thursday was a grand success.
The excursionists started oil" about 6, A.
M., on the City of Salem, arriving at the
Cascades shortly ofter noon, where thev
enjoyed the magnificent scenery for an
hour or two, and arrived home about 10
o'clock in tho evening. Everything
passed off pleasantly, and the excursion
ists were all well pleased with the trip.
The three Sunday Schools Methodist,
Congregational and Baptist, netted (05
each as their share of the profits.
Casdade Road and Bridge Company.
From information received, we learn that
the road across the Cascade mountains,
via Mt. Hood and Barlow's Gate, is now
open, and wagons and droves of cattle
and sheep are on their way to bunch
grass. A great many improvements have
beeh added to the road, in the way of new
grades and bridges. Some of our best
citizens sav that this is the best and short
est route over the mountains. The dis
tance across, we understand, from settle
ment to settlement, is only 44 miles. -
Heavy Loss. XV. 15. Magers, living
near Gervais, had his barn destroyed by
fire last Sunday. The barn contained all
of his farm implements and five head of
horses, all of which were destroyed. The
loss was about $2000, with seven or eight
hundred dollars' insurance. It is sup
posed to be the work of incendiaries.
Opicm Smokers. Parents would do
well to look after their boys who are con
tracting the fearful habit of opium smok
ing. INight after night these boys can be
seen at a Chinese deh kept by Sing, and it
is high time the city authorities were
looking after this matter.
Official Returns. Owing to a num
ber of errors in our official returns for
Clackamas countv, caused by lack of time
and tvne. we publish it again this week
With'the proper corrections. It is a val
uable table for future reference, and
should be carefully preserved.
Bilks. The Rose Manning Opera
Bouffe troupe have started up the Colum
bia, and will not play in this city, as ad
vertised, and, in all probability, will
never pay us for said advertising. We
advise our newspaper friends to collect in
advance, as we intend doing hereafter.
TnE Fourth at Mew Era. An excur
sion from this citv to New Era park is pro
posed for the Fourth of Julv. Orator,
music, etc, have been secured for the oc
casion, and a grand time may be expected.
Full particulars hereafter.

A Remarkable Itesult.
It makes no difference how many Physi
cians, or how much medicine you have tried,
it Is now an established fact that German
Syrup is the only remedy which has given
comolete satisfaction in severe cases of Lung
Diseases. It is true, there are yet thousands
of persons who are predisposed to Throat
and Lunjr Affections, Consumption, Hemor
rhages, Asthma, Severe Colds settled on the
Breast, Pneumonia, Whooping Cough, &c,
who have no personal knowledge of Boschee's
German Syrup. To such we would say 60,000
dozen were sold last year without one com
plaint. Consumptives try Just one bottle.
Itegular size 75 cents, jold by all Druggists.
If any Dealer Informs
You that he has for sale a dentifrice identical
with or containing Ingredients equalling or
superior in efficacy to those of SOZODONT,
discredit the statement and insist upon hav
ing that alone. By doing so you will secure a
dentifrice par excellence the best in the mar
ket, containing botanic elements of rare
preservative influence upon the teeth, and
one which will endow them with most becom
ing whiteness. Another desirable feature of
this staple toilet article is that it imparts fra
grance to the breath. Sold by druggists.
To all who are suffering from the errors and
indiscretion of youth, nervous weakness,
early decay, loss of manhood, Ac, I will send
