The Walla WaUa Statesman says
that -ve visited the railroad depot
one day last -week and found the
glut of grain even greater than at
a corresponding period the week
before. On some of the platforms
it is stacked eighteen and twenty
sacks deep, and the open prairie
for blocks around is covered with
grain. It is now quite evident
that the means for moving the
crop fall short of the demand, and
that a very considerable amount
of grain must remain over to an
other season. Monday last the
Oregon Steam Navigation com
pany placed a third boat on the
river, and these three are equal to
moving fifteen hundred tons a
week. It is a great misfortune
that the means of transportation
should be short, but it is now too
late in the season to remedy the
evil, and so our producers must
oinn rmrl liov if.
Q. . V-. .LU.
Delicacy ix Women. If there
is one trait in a woman's charac
ter to be loved and admired above
another, it is true, modest, unas
suming delicacy. The true deli
cacy of a woman consists in ad
ministering to the wants of the
distressed, giving counsel and
good advice in a friendly manner,
and in not seeming to know that
she has done anything but her
duty, and it in a very unobtru
sive way. True delicacy will
I never give offense, yet tell us of
our worst faults at all tinies. Ave
have known ladies with such a
natural delicacy that our admira
tion of that most estimable trait
of character though they were
very plain and not riQssessed of
nature's beauty caused them to
seem to us the mo-t beautiful of
women. Delicacy made them so
pure in thought, word and act,
that our admiration did not allow
us to see the fault of nature's
adornement after we had known
them a day. A delicacy that is
natural is ever moddest, retiring
and full of compassion a.nd human
sympathy, it is possessed of a
heart that is ever open to others'
woe and sorrows.
