Astoria, Oregon, Sunday Morning, January 8, 1882 $o. 83. l aw -- SS Jr JM Jr Jf -Jill' J. t THE FUTURE OF THE MORMON the January Century, the "Legal Aspects' of the Mormon f roblem" are discussed bv Arthur vr. bedgwick. who concludes as ioiiews: The failure of the attempt to break up the Mormon system by Congressional legislation does not, by any means, show that the Mor mon system will ultimately prevail in Utah. The operation of natural causes Is certain, in the long run, to sap the foundations of polyg amy. The railroads have already brought the Territory into commu nication vfith the rest of the coun try, and the development of the mines must ultimately bring in a large Gentile population almost altogether male. A strong ten dency in the direction of marriages between Gentile men and the daughters of Mormon parents must spring up. Indeed, this is said to show itself already. There is no surplus of women in the AVest from which to recruit polygamous households; the birthsvof the two sexes are always very nearly equal and the Mormon population is no longer being -rapidly increased from abroad, as it was in the times of the early persecution of the church. It is now stationary, or nearly so, and being rapidly hem med in by a community having a social system which all experience shows is the only one permanently adapted to modern industrial life. As the Territory fills up, and the Mormons are brought more and more into relations with the rest of the world, one of the strongest in ternal causes of disintegration will unquestionably be the sense of shame operating upon the younger female generation. In the natural course of things, some of the daughters of Mormon kouseholders must marry Gentiles, and others, who do " not marry outside the church, will bo made keenly aware that they are surrounded by a community which regards their position as a, degraded one. As long as they could keep them selves separated from tho rest of the world, this Gentile feeling was of Tery little consequence to them. It did not affect them in their daily life; it was something remote from them, which they did not even need to disregard. This cannot continue forever, and indeed a change must begin, if it has not be gun already, as soon as the sur rounding inonogamic Gentile sys tem of marriage has a fair oppor tunity to enter into competition with its rival. Under these circum stances, there is nothing to be done with tho Mormons but to let them alone. Persecution has been tried, and has only served to strengthen and increase them. Law has been tried, and has proved of no use, because it has not been enforced. From the circumstances of the case, it cannot be. A Stranger's Mistake. A Western merchant, who want ed to do some sight seeing and buy his fall stock at the same time, entered a dry-goods jobbing-house on Broadway, and accosted the first person he met with: 'Are you the proprietor here?" "Not exactly the proprietor," was -the reply; "at present I am acting as shipping clerk, but I am cutting my cards for ju partnership next year by organizing noon prayer-meetings in the basement." The stranger passes on to a very important personage with a dia mond pin,.and asked: "Are you the head of the house?" "Well, no; I can't say I am at present, but I've hopes of a part nership in January. I'm only one of the travelers'just now, but 1 am laying fof a$2,000 pew in an up town church, and that will mean a quarter interest here in less than six months." The next man had his feet up, his hat back, and a 20-cent cigar in Iiis mouth, and he looked so solid that the stranger said: "You must run this establish ment?" "Me? Well, 1 may run it very soon. At present I am the book keeper, but I am expecting to go into a church choir with the old man's darling, and become an equal partner here." The stranger was determined not to make another mistake. He walked around until he found a man with his coat off and busy with a case of goods, and he said to him: "The porters are kept pretty busy in here, I see?" "Yes," was the brief reply. "But I suppose you are planning to invest in a gospel hymn-book and sine: the old man out of an eighth interest, aren't you?" "Well, no, not exactly," was the quiet reply; "I'm the old man himself." And all the stranger said, after a long minute spent in looking the merchant over, was: Well, durn my buttons!" Haw Oysters. Dr. William Roberts, in an; interesting series of lectures on di gestive ferments, published in the Lancet, says: The practice of cooking is not equally necessary in regard to all articles of food. There are important differences in this respect, and it is interesting to note how correctly tho experi ence of mankind has guided them in .this matter. The articles of food which we still use in the un cooked state are comparatively few, and it is not difficult in each case to indicate the reason of the exception. Fruits, which we con sume largely in the raw state, owe their dietetic value chiefly to the sugar they contain; but .sugar is not altered by cooking. Milk is consumed by us both cooked and uncooked, indifferently, and ex periment justifies this indifference; for I have found on trial that the digestion of milk by pancreatic extract was not appreciably hast ened by previously boiling the milk. Our practice in regard to tho oyster is quite exceptional, and furnishes a striking example of the general correctness of the popular judgment on dietetic questions. Tho oyster is almost tho only animal substance which we eat habitually, and by prefer ence, in the raw or uncooked state, and it is interesting to know that there is a sound physiological reason at the bottom of this pref erence, ine lawn-colored mass which constitutes the dainty part of the oyster is ils liver, and this is little else than a heap of glyco gen. Associated with the glyco gen, but withheld from actual contact with it during life, is its appropriative digestive ferment the hepatic diastase. The mere crushing -of the dainty between the teeth brings these two bodies together, and the glycogen is at once digested, without other help, by its own diastase. The oyster in the uncooked state, or merely warmed, is in fact, self-digestive. But the advantage of this provis ion is wholly lost by cooking, for the heat applied immediately de stroys the associated ferment, and a cooked oyster has ,to be digested like any other food, by tho eater's own digestive powers. -A Nasal Injector free with each bottlo of Shiloh's Catarrh.

When the hunter has found a rubber tree he first clears away a space from the roots, and then moves on in search of others, re turning to commence operations as soon as he has marked all the trees in tho vicinity. He first of all digs a hole in the ground hard by, and then cuts in the tree a V shaped incision with a machete, as high as he can reach. The milk is caught as it exudes and flows into the hole. As soon as the flow from the cuts has1 ceased, the tree is chopped down, and the trunk raised from the ground by means of an improvised trestle. After placing large leaves to catch the sap, gashes are cut throughout tho entire length, and the milk care fully collected. When it first ex udes the sap is of the whiteness and cousistence of cream, but it turns black on exposure to the air. When the hole is "filled with rub ber it is coagulated by adding hard soap or the roots of the mechvacan, which have a most rapid action, and prevents the escape of the water that is always present in fresh sap. When coagulated suffi ciently, the rubber is carried on the backs of the hunters, by bark thongs, to the banks of the river and floated down on rafts. The annual destruction of rubber trees in f:rtln,liln Jo fori- itrnqt inl Ytn . , J ' industry must soon disappear alto-' nether, unless the Government. puts in force a law that already j exists, which compels ,the hunters to tap the trees without cutting tliem ClOWII. It ttllS law Were strictly carried out there would be a good opening for commercial enterprise, for rubber trees will grow from eight to ten inches in diameter in three or four years from seed. The trees require but little attention, and begin to yield returns sooner than . any other. These that yield the jrreatest amount of rnbber flourish on tho banks of the Simu and Aslato rivers. The value of tho crude india rubber imported into the States ' annually is about $40, 000,000. juo ui me tun vniuic papers . .... ... Ki;cl,n.i ;., vnnf :,t i . i published in kgypt said lately:!

One of the interesting speciila- j tioti recently started in England )MS for a subject the present value , .... , ... . , 'of lilu as compared with its value when "mankind did not spend half ' of its time in studvinf the nmhlnm of ptolonging life. One of the leading London pliy&icians declares that men were happier and better, and lived nobler lives, before the pursuit of health and the yearn ings for longevity became a craze almost amounting to madness, and before the questions what to oat, drink and to avoid, and what to wear, and how to live, by what means to avoid infection, to keep off disease, and to escape death for a few weary and wearied years, were the all-engrossing ones. An other urges that the "survival of the fittest," so far as the race is concerned, is a great mistake; and that humanity in general would bo a great deal better off if there were less of the loving labor now expended in prolonging tho lives of the weak, diseased and crippled. There is no danger that either of these views will find general acceptance. The world has be come so accustomed to studying the laws of health and long life, and enjoys the study so much, that it is not likely to abandon it, even for the purpose of bringing back the happy days when then didn't care anything about diet and drainage and pure air. There is just as little danger of any re trogression in thi! mailer of caring for the sick and helpless. It may be worse for the race, in one as pect of the case, to prolong lives of suffcring-iruu'tonntcrfcre' with, the natural process which extin guishes fjic weaklings in a few generations. But what the race loses in this way it is repaid an hundred fold in the cultivation and expansion of its finer emotions. ' n - -- I" A CARD.
