and appeared twice a month.
the Oregon almanac "tor tho year
of our Lord and Saviour Jesus

No ono who has had any appre

or in art can fail to recognize tho
claim of fino manners in an indi
vidual. We rcjoico in them as wo
do in a lovely sunset view or a
beautiful pieeo of architecture or a
fascinating poem, for thoir own
sako and what they express; but
oven beyond this they have another
attraction in tho magnetic power
they exert upon, all beholders in
setting them ut eose, in sweeping
away shyness, awkwardness ami
restraint, and In stimulating them
to the expression of whatever Is
Is'st within them. It in nn. I. .i.l.l.

Wheat, after packing, goes

sweat it will thresh tough, and be

Harvest in season; secure it when

The newspaper pull' is something
that make men feel bud if they
don't get it. The, groundwork of
an ordinary newspaper puff consists
of a moral character and a good
bank account. Writing newspaper
pull's is like mixing sherry cobblers
and mint juleps all through the
summer months for customers and
quenching your own thirst with
rainwater. Sometimes u man is
looking for a pull' and don't get it.
Then ho says that tho paper is go
ing down hill, and that no would
stop subscribing if ho did not have
to pay his bill first. Writing a
newspaper jmffis like taking a pho
tograph: if it does not represent the
child with wings, haloa and harps,
it shows that tho artist does not
understand his business. So it is
with the newspaper pull": if the
puffed doesn't stand out like a bold
and fearless exponent of truth and
morality, it shows that tho puller
doesn't understand human na
ture. It is more fun to see a man
rend a puff of himself than it
is to boo a man slip on an orange
pool. Tho narrow-minded man
roads it over soven or eight times
and then goes around to the differ
ent places where tho paper is taken
and steals what ho can. The kind
hearted family man goes homo and
reads it to his wife, and then pays
up his bills on tho paper.

At Tacoma, ono night lust week,
tin attempt was made to scuttle the

lumber at Tacoma mill for Valpa
raiso. On going into tho hold in

inch auger holes bored in the ves
sel's bottom. Tho auger struck an
iron bolt after penetrating a dis
tance of seven inches. The villian
then attempted to uso a smaller
auger, but it was too short to pierce
tho thick timbers. Suspicion
points to tho Norwegian carpenter,
Christopher Anderson, who it is
said, had threatened to sink the
ship because Capt. Stanley refused
to advance him money for drink.

Hull (tcheine of 15,m),000 acres of

imported from China by Vog Yin
Wau, a San Francisco Chinaman:
"Tho proposition is absurd in tho
face of it. In tho first place, the
Chinese government will not per
mit tho emigration of Chinamen to
and country with which it has no
treaty between China and tho re
public of Mexico. Tho British au
thorities at Hong-Kong, by sjiecial
arrangement with the Chinese gov
ernment, will not give clearance pa
pers to any vessel carrying Chi
nese subjects away, contrary to the
laws of tho country.
"T ho only way in which China
men can reach Mexico, or any other
country with which China has no
treaty, is for them to first ship to
some port in treaty country, as for
instance, San Francisco or Liver
pool, and being landed there, to af
terward ship to tho country for
which they are destined. Any col
iniz.ttion scheme in Mexico that
would entail tho shipping of tho
colonists by tho roundabout route,
via San Francisco, would cost too
much per head to mako tho thing
"Anyway, I don't believe that
any Chinaman harbors any such
colossal project as this reported
one. Fifteen million acres is a vast
tract of country and unless Wog

A London dispatch says: Advices
have reached Cairo that the famine
which bus for some time past pre
vailed in tho Soudan ia increasing
rapidly. Thousands of natives are .
wit bout food of any kind, and the re
ported number of deat hs from starv
ation is appalling. With reports
of this dreadful state of affairs come
horrible stories of cannibalism,
which is on the increase.
It was reported not long ago that
the dead wero being eaten by the
famished survivors, but present ad
vices represent matters as still
worse. It is now asserted that large
numbers of women and children
are deliberately put to death that
they may serve as food for their
frenzied companions. Relief haa
been extended to these unhappy
people as far as possible, but not
sufficiently to allay the terrible suf
fering in tho interior settlements
which are beyond reach.
