The Oregonian says: "A dispatch
from San Francisco says a cannery
tkereis labeling its pack 'Columbia
Krer Salmon 'Cascade Packing
Co.' " Snch rascality should be wide
ly exposed, and the name of the firm
given. It is now two years Eince any

A Rotten Corporation.
This is a city of corporations. They
spring up like mushrooms and fado
away like the shadow at nightfall. It
has been a mystery how people
without visible means could suddenly
become bloated shareholders in a
largo stock company, and what is
more of a mystery is the work that is
accomplished. The case of Col. W.
C. Gaston against the Northern
Pacific Land and Immigration com
pany, now pending in Justice Green's
court, serves to throw some light ou
cHe business. The Colonel sues the
company for SL25 attorney fees.
About three months ago the company
was organized by ten men, with an al
leged capital stock of S500,000. Each
of the incorporators paid in $10. The
object of the company was to deal in
real estate, build and equip railroads,
steamboats, mills, farms, woodyards,
and induce immigrants to Sow hither.
The Qrst principal move was to pur
chase 1G0 acre3 of the railroad in
Washington county, at the nominal
price of $3 per acre, paying about $15
down and taking a bond for a deed.
This land was divided into ten shares,
among the share holders, and
was by them turned into the
company at $50,000 each in payment
for the shares. This, of course, made
the capital stock "paid up." The
next business was to buy and sell 128
feet of wood for a cord. Col. Gaston
was elected attorney fcr the company,
and things not running smoothly, he
desired his pay, which, for some rea
son, was not forthcoming, hence the
suit at law. Col. Gaston in his testi
mony yesterday said that this compa
ny consisted of xi long name, inordi
nate cheek, and no money. So far as
known the company has not bilked
any person yet, unless it manages to
get away with its attorney, and that is
.not probable. It ought to be able to
realize on its 100 acres of land, which
is supposed to represent $500,000 and
pay up its debts. There are several
other corporations atloat in this city
which may come to grief in a himilar
manner before long. An immense cap
ital stock looks very well on paper,
and imbues an outsider with a sense
of awe as he contemplates it, and
probably makes a holder of $50,000
feel somewhat dizzy fur a time, but
tho fall of such a corporation is not a
calamity by any means. Portland
What Tripe Is.
Occasionally you see a man order
tripe at a hotel, but he always looks
hard as though he hated himself and
everybody else. He trieM to look as
though he enjoyed it, but he does
not. Tripe h indigestible, and looks
like an india-rubber apron for a child
to sit on. When it is pickled it looks
like dirty cloJies put to soak. On
the table it looks like glue, and tastes
like a piece of oil silk umbrella cover.
A stomach that is not lined with cor
rugated iron would be turned wrong
side out by the smell of tripe. A man
eating tripe at a hotel table looks like
an Arctic explorer dining ou boot or
chewing pieces of frozen dog. You
cannot look at a man eating tripe but
he will blush aud look as though he
wanted to apologize and convince you
that he is taking it to tone up his
system. A woman, never eats tripe.
There is not money enough in the
world to hire a woman to take a
corner of a sheet of tripe in her teeth
and try to pull off a piece. Tho3e
who eat tripe .ave men w ho have
had their stomachs play mean tricks
on them, and they eat tripe to yet
even with their btomachs, aud then
they go and take a Turkish bath to
sweat it out of I he system. Tripe is
a superstition handed down from a
former generation of butchers, who
sold all the meat and kept the tripe
for themselves and the dogs; but dogs
of the present day will not eat tripe.
You throw a piece of tripe down in
front of a dog, and see if he does not
put his tail between his legs -and go
off and hate you. Tripe may have a
value, but it is not as food. It may
be good to fill into a burglar-proof
safe, with the cement and chilled
steel, or it might answer to use as a
breast plate in time of war, or it would
be good to use for bumper between
cars, or it would make a good face for
the weight of a pile driver, but when
you come to smuggle it into the
stomach you do wrong. Tripe! Bah!
A piece of Turkish towel cooked in
axle grease would be pie compired
with tripe. Ex.

Character in Smoking.
It's twenty years, said a cigar deal-,
er, now since I began to sell tobacco,
and in that timel have closely studied
the characters of my patrons, forming
my conclusions from the kind of com
pany they keep. 1 mean by the kind
of cigars they smoke. I can always
tell. An even tempered, quiet follow
never goes to an extreme in choosing
a tobacco; a nervous man wants some
thing strong and furious; a mild man,
something that smokes and nothing
more. The same conditions run
through chewing tobacco. Then there
is a great deal in the ft ay men handle
their cigars. Very few can smoke on
one side as well as on the other. Men
come in here every day whojhave been
smoking for thirty years, aud if they
were to place a cigar on the wrong
side of the mouth they would appear
as clumsy and green, as a boy who was
trying his first weed. Tho muscles of
the face become set to one position.
Any change repuires a reorganization
of the face. So it ain't by the way
the cigar is embraced in the mouth
that you can estimate a man.
If a man smokes his cigar only
enough to keep it lighted and relishes
taking it from between his lips to cast
a whirling curl of blue smoke into the
air, set him down as an easy-going fel
low, who cares little for how tho world
goes and no moro for himself. Ho
has keen preceptions and delicate sen
sibilities. He will not create trouble,
but is apt to see it out when it is once
Beware of the man who releases the
cigar from ttie grip of his teeth, and is
indifferent of whether it burns or dies.
He is cool, calculating, and exacting.
He is seldom energetic physically, but
lives easily off those who perform the
The man who smokes a bit, rests a
bit, and fumbles the cigar more or
less is apt to be easily affected by
circumstances. He may be energetic,
careful, generous and courageous, but
he is vacillating aud liable to change
on a moment's notice.
If the cigar goes out frequently the
mm has a whole-soul disposition, is a
devil-may-care sort of fellow, with a
lively brain, a glib tongue, and
generally a fine fund of anecdotes and
To hold half the cigar in the mouth
and smoke indifferently is a lazy
man's habit. They are generally of
little force and their characters are
not of the highest strata.
A nervous mau, or one under ex
citing influences, tumbles his cigar a
great deal. He is a kind of popinjay
Holding tho cigar constantly be
tween the teeth, chewing it occasion
ally, and not caring whether or not it
has been lighted at all are character
istics of men with the tenacity of bull
dogs. They never forget anything
and never release a hold
A fop stands his cigar ou etid.nud an
inexperienced smoker either points it
straight aheid or almost at light
angles with his course. Chicago News.

LThe Many Things Into "Which Paper
A tall man, with sharp fealnres aud
a thoughtful air, sat in a small study,
and gazed gravely at a brown object
that lay at his feet.
'It is a paper railroad cross tie," he
The reporter raised it with some
difficulty. It was of very close fibre,
and so highly polished that it resem
bles rosewood. Its inventor tapped it
with his nail, and said:
"It doesn't look much like paper.
"It seems more like iron. Is it
possible that it is made of paperf '
"Oh, yes; almost anything can be
made of paper. A paper ball can be
rendered so solid that nothing will in

strength is astonishing. You ran sits-'

"Not yet. The cross tie is my in
vention." "How did you happen to think of
"Well, I didn't happen to think of
it, oxactly. I started out deliberately
to invent a substitute for the wooden
crrai tie or sleeper, aud I kept
steadily at it until 1 was successful.
I thought of paper. There are are
scores of mills in the country where
paper, straw, prairie grass and other
fibrous substances arc converted into
straw board. The process is simple,
the straw is reduced to a pulp aud
run out -into boards. Tiieso straw
boards are sold all over the country as
substitutes for wood. My invention
utilizes straw board. The cross tie is
constructed of sheets or layers of paper
or straw board, laid one upon another,
cemented and compressed into mold?.
It makes a perfect cro$3 tie. It is
practically water and fire proof, as it
is manufactured under 500 degrees of
heat. Atmospheric changes have no
effect upon it. It can be made as
oheap as wood at the present time,
and will last at least twenty-five year?.
