Astoria, Oregon, Thursday Morning, August 17, 1882
The harvest in eastern Oregon
and Washington is nearly complet
ed and the result is much more
favorable than was anticipated.
In most places the very late spring
sown wheat is short, but early
seeding and fall crops are "good,
and may be said to be of a fair
average. The quality is also ex
cellent. While the yield per acre
will not equal that of last vear,
the. increase of acreage will more
than supply the difference, and
Irom what we could learn, we are
led to the opinion that there will
be more wlieae come down the
Columbia river this year than did
last. The foot hills are turning
out well while the- lower flats,
which were generally seeded late
in the spring will not produce a
fair average in a few localities.
The TJitz farm on the Xorthern
Pacific, which was seeded last Jail
has turned out on 1.10 acres an
average of 50 bushels per acre,
and many others of which we were
informed go above this figure. In
Grand Itonde valley the season has
been very unfavorable, but that
section is mainly devoted to stock
raising and not considered a wheat
section.. As soon as the railroad
reaches that fertile and beautiful
valley, the stock will have to give
place to wheat fields. The price
offered for wheat is very en
couraging to the farmers, and
the are in good spirits. The
constructions of the various rail
roads east of the mountains are
creating a home market for a great
deal the farmers raise and have for
sale. At no time since the opening
of the northwest, has -there-been
lmore rapid progress in the devel
opment of the country, and people
arc arriving daily to make it their
future home. The progress now
being made in railroad building
will within the next year connect
northern Idaho, eastern Oregon and
Washington by rail with this city,
and by that time two eastern lines
will be completed, the Xorthern
Pacific and the Short Line, the lat
ter of which will connect with the
0. K. X. Co.'s road at Baker City.
The present prospects for the
northwest are most flattering and
its progress will be more' rapid
within the next two years than it
has for the past ten. Portland
Every Ladder Has Two Ends
When I was a small boy 1 was
carrying a not very large ladder,
when there was a crash. An un
lucky movement had brought the
rear end of my ladder against a
window. Instead of scolding me,
my father made me stop, and said
very quietly, "Look here, my son,
there is one thing 1 wish you to
remember; that is, every ladder
has two ends.5' I never have for
gotten that, though many years
have gone. Don't we cany many
things besides ladders that have
two ends? When T see a younjr
man getting "fast'' habits, I think
he sees but one end of the ladder
the one pointed toward pleasure,
and that he does not know that the
other is wounding his parents'
hearts. Many a young girl car
ries a ladder in the shape of love
for dress and finery; she sees the
gratification of a foolish pride at
the forward end of the ladder,
while the end she does not sec is
crushing modesty and friendship
as she goes along thoughtlessly
among the crowd. A'! j-es, every
ladder has two ends, and it is a
thing to be remembered in more
ways than one.

The Owner of One Shirt
Once a woman who was called
in to do Garibaldi's washing, ven
tured to remark that she could not
find his shirts. "My shirts! 1 have
but two," he replied. Vou must
have one in the wash, I have the
other on. With a little order and
calculation two shirts are plenty!"
This sort of philosophy was, how
ever, equaled by a Kentuckian of
whom the Detroit Free Press tells
the stery: lie owned but one
shirt and was accustomed to lie in
bed one day each week to have the
sacreu "-armeut wasneu. jie
morning while he was at rest his
wife rushed in and cried: "Bill,
the duvued calf he, et your shirt!"
Upon this Bill remarked tranquilly,
that "thpm ez he, must lose!"' .
Among the bills which congress
left to go over til! the next session
were the follewing: For the ad
mission of Washington Territory
and New Mexico into the Union;
the five-per-cent land bill; the
Ocean Shore Hail road bill; to al
low the construction of a bridge
across the Willamette at Portland,
in the state of Oregon; to provide
for a scientific exploration of the
territory of Alaska; to authorize a
preliminary examination and sur
vey of the passes between the af
fluents of the upper Missouri and
Columbia rivers, for the purpose of
ascertaining the distance between
the navigable waters of said rivers
and the practicability of uniting
said rivers by a canal or other
wise. Five persons were killed in a riot
at Eastman, Ga. The trouble be
gan with an attempt by a deputy
marshal to recover a watch taken
by a colored gambler named Jack
Jackson. He ran and the marshal
shot him dead, which enrajred the
colored people and thcy.brutally
murdered a young man named
IToward. The citizens of Eastman
armed themselves and a general
engagement took place, in which
.three negroes were killed and sev
eral persons wounded on both
sides, the negroes being routed.
The Alabama election is in favor
of the Democratic state ticket-by
a large majoriry, though it is much
reduced from that of 3880. The
election was very quiet and a light
vote was polled everywhere. In
the black belt the Republicans
had not organized, and many ne
groes voted the Democratic ticket
in the northern part of the state.
