A Hard Life.
An Italian peasant has written
a work called "The Voice of a
Peasant," describing the hardships
of his class, which is attracting:
attention from the European
press, and may lead to important
results. Here is his picture of the
agricultural laberer: "1 magine
that it is in the middle of winter.
The peasant must be in the field
at sun rise, and after four or five
hours of fatiguing work he is per
mitted to repose and refresh him
self for a short hour. Seated on a
stone or on the naked earth, he
takes from a basket or cloth a few
slices of badly cooked polenta, and
warms them at an impoverished
fire, together with a bit of rancid
herring, and with this miserable
food recuperates his exhausted
strength. At times he varies the
diet, eating his polenta with a few
dried figs, or a moldy crust of
cheese, or four small pickled fishes,
or a few edible snails, or a pair of
frogs cooked in stuff that is sold
for olive oil, but is nothing more
than unwholesome crease." The
evening meal is no more inviting,
comprising a few leaves of lettuce,
a scanty quantity of oil and vine
gar, or instead a herring, a little
bread, an apple, or radish, onions,
garlic, or something of the sort.
Governor Newell pronounces the
settlements made in the Chehalis
river valley and tributary valley to
be upon as fine agricultural lands
as those in the counties previously
mentioned. The settlers for some
months have been busy clearing
and preparing for next season's
work. Farmers and stockmen in
all the sections he visited were
making settlements and taking
early advantage of the splendid
opportunities, offered to active
men . CJwoniclc
Millers from Minneapolis are in
Salem superintending tne con
struction of the new flouring mills
there. They say that Oregon
wheat makes more flour to the
bushel than any in the world and
that the Minneapolis millers will
be large purchasers of .this wheat
wfcen the railroad is completed, if
tCMMpoftfttxm is not too high.
The Granite Monument to the Dead i
at Big Hole.
The monument ordered b' tho
goernmentto be placed on the
battlefield at Big Hole, M. T.,
where General Gibbon fought the
Nez Perces, under Chief Joseph,
xVugust 7, 1877, is in thice sec
tions. The base is about SxS feet
in size and two feet thick. xbovc
this rises a solid block seven and
one-half feet square at the base
and tapering to about twelve
inches square and then pointed,
this shaft being five and one-haif
feet in height. Upon one side of
the middle section of the monu
ment is carved the werds:
"Erected by the United States."
On the other side is inscribed the
follewing: 'To the oiliceis and
soldiers of the Arm', and citizens
of Montana, who fell at Big Hole,
August 7, 1877, in a battle with
the Nez Perces Indians." Upon
the third side is engraved the fol fel fol
eowing: "On this field seventeen
officers and 1SS enlisted men of
the United States Infantry, under
its Colonel, Brevet Major General
John Gibbon, with eight other
soldiers and thirty-eight citizens,
surprised and fought all da a
superior force of Nez Perces,
Indians, more than one-third
the command being killed and
wounded." Upon the reverse
side are the names of those known
to have fallen upon the field.
CL The Great Novelist's Opinion.
"What is it to die if it is not
to live forever? These millions of
woilds above, which call us by
their radiant symphony, bear me
witness. And beyond these mil
lions of worlds, what is there? The
infinite, alwas the infinite. If I
pronounce the name of God, I
bring a smile from the lips of some
who do not believe in God. Why
do they not believe in God? Be
cause they believe only in the vital
forces of Nature. But what is Na
ture? Without God 'tis, but a
grain of sand. This is looking on
the small side of things because
the great side dazzles us too much.
But I believe in the great side.
What is the earth? A cradle and
a tomb! And even as a cradle has
its beginnings, so the tomb has its
dawning for the dead; it is a door
closed indeed to the world, but
opening upon worlds of which we
may now only obtain a far-distant
glimpse. Messieurs, believe if you
will, that I shall be buried to-morrow
or in ten years to come I feel
within me that the tomb will not
hold me prisoner; 1 feel that your
six feet of earth will not be able
to make night where I am lying;
your earth-worms shall devour all
that is perishable in my frame, but
that something which is the life of
my brain the life of my eyes
the life of my ears, my forehead
and m lips, can be destroyed by
no power on earth. Victor Hugo.
Lately, very little has been said
about the progress of the N. P.
Pi. I. Co.'s work on the north bank
of the Columbia river, in Klickitat
county. The Sentinel learns that
the camps are now at Hellgate,
this side of Celilo, and that two
gangs of men, 75 in all, are work
ing both ways, grading and pre
paring a road bed. At one place
they are blasting out solid rock
which is 9S feet in height; some
times as many as 100 blasts are let
off at once. Their mode of drill
ing the rock is peculiar -and dan
gerous, the men who drill and pre
pare the blasts being let down by
ropes over the face of the cliff,
and when all are in readiness are
drawn up to a place of safety.
The Sentinel's informant states
that when the numerous blasts are
let off it makes it very lively,
boulders flving in every direction.
He thinks the railroad company
means business, and, and as the
work is expensive to an extreme,
and the thoroughness with which
it is done

the people of this commonwealth
as a day of thanksgiving and

For these and all other blessings

In Huron, D. T., not long since,
the citizens assembled to hear the
result of the election. They were
all impatient to learn the vote on
Judge of Probate. The clerk
read the returns for county com
missioner. Bather the county
commissioner! We don't care
anything about that. Go on to
the next." "For register of
deeds ' "Go on! Go on!"
"For sheriff " "No matter about
the sheriff. Go on to probate
judge! Probate judge!" cried
scores of voices. "I am sorry to
announce that the vote for pro
bate judge is a tie, and that there
is no election to that office."
Fierce cries of fraud and treachery
arose, and figures were demanded.
"Gentlemen," said the clerk,
"there were 2,27S votes cast.
There are 2,27S names. Each
received one vote. Every man
voted for himself." Detroit Tree
Hon. A. It. Burbank marketed
two calves last week that we con

months old and weighed 32G
pounds, after being dressed and

and weighed 227 pounds after be

The constitution of the state
provides that no law shall take
effect until 90 days after the ad
journment of the legislature
which enacts it, unless otherwise
specified in the bill. The game
law introduced by Senator Prim
follows the ordinary course, and
will become operative on the 11th
of Januarv next.
Oscar Patterson, who resides
near Sumner, killed a hog last
week which weighed 193 pounds.
It had been in the pen 152 days
and as it weighed only ten pounds
when put in, it gained 185 pounds
in 152 days, an average of one
pound three and a half ounces per
day. Coos Day News.
