A GUEST OP NATURE.
"Written for The Astoiuax. Uy the O:rtsop
Sonic folk think that I must he lonely ;
But I don't see the good reason why ;
"With my hook and the Muse
I would often excuse
The gayest of gay company.
"With the first golden ray in the morning
That gilds the green top of the trees,
My companions troop in,
"With their clatter and din,
And hegrudge me one moment of ease,
And chalk out the routine of business
For performance thro'out the whole day,
With sometimes a broad hint
That time lost, or mis-spent,
Is a loss to us ever and aye-
I live on the proceeds of labor
Performed by own willing hands;
That, with thought, care, and toil,
1 extract from the soil
And the cattle that brouse o'er my lands.
Though 1 have no human companions
I mentally see them all 'round,
In their hurry and strife
Through the battle of life,
And in mis'ry enough, I'll be bound.
I love to commune with my fellows,
When harmony plays her whole part;
Then each grip of the hand,
As by magical wand,
Stamps its friendly impress on the heart.
And why should they think me so lonely
When a neighbor like Nature it near.
To remind us each hour
In the dew drop and flower, sphere ?
Of the grandeur that decks the whole
And Fancy paints millions all "round me,
And I'm thronged with a vast company,
"When I watch the bright stars,
Or the sun's golden bars
When lie dips his bright disk in the sea.
In Natufe there s much to amuse us
And afford us the best company,
From the first bud in Spring
To the last leaves that cling
In the clear, to the hoar silvered tree.
No lover of Nature is lonely,.
If he's blessed with the organ of sight
lie admires the gay tints
That the bright sunbeams glints
From his warm golden chariot of light.
All sounds, toned by Nature, is music
To the ear that can catch the rich strain
From the echoe that fills
Each concave in the hills
To the waters that sing on the Maine.
In Nature, there's much to inspire us;
"With awe, as the seasons roll round
hi the lightnings bright Hash,
in the thunders loud crash.
And the hurricane's terrific sound.
In Nature there's much to Inspire us
"With thoughts most grand and sublime:
Of the first, or great cause
Of infallible laws time.
By which form'd, and exists, throughout
Encourage Strangers. The fol
lowing excerpt from the Statesman is
worthy of reproduction. The words ap
yy to Astoria, ius well as "Walla "Walla.
The Statesman taj's: "When strangers
come here with means and propose Xo en
gage in business, encourage them in all
poisible ways. If they desire a lot for
building purposes, sell it to them at a
reasonable rate. If they with to esUblish
a manufacturing enterprise, and require
water power, don't ask them three times
as much as the privilege is worth. If you
do the chance is that they will seek tome
other locality, and leave you with unpro
ductive property on your hands. Owing
to want of foresight the woolen mills were
diiven to Dayton, and in the end have
hucn the means of building up a iormida
hle rival to "Walla "Walla. The origina
tors of that enterprise desired to locate
here, but finding that water power could
only be had at an enormous outlay, they
accepted, the donation ol a mill site from
Jesse Day, and built their factory at a
town that then only had an existence on
paper. The sure.-t way to build up a
town is to deal liberally with strangers.
In the early settlement of the northwest
const, Oregon-city lmd the lead and
promised to be the chief town in the
country. Holders ol town lots taking
advantage of this, held their property at
extravagant figures. The result was the
location of a town named Portland, and
Oregon-city speculator.- were left out ii
the cold. Like begets like, and if a sellMi
policy killed Oregon-city, it nny piovc'
jnjuuous to other towns.. "Hc'io-no He
stranger within your gale." is an o'd i -junction,
the wisdom of which is just :
apparent now a- when first uttered. Let
its welcome new comers, aid them in se
curing locations, and in all suitable ways
make them feel that we are joined with
them in the bonds of a cominu'i hu
manity." The love of lifer the desire for health
and pasion for wealth, are three of the
.strongest laws that operate in tlm hrpnt
oMhe human family. AVherever life can
be most prolonged, health bcM. secured, !
and wealth most easily nequhed, there the
