Stovons, in Z.onyniait's Magazine. I lir been suffering in ray heftlth a good denl all the way; and at Inst, whether 1 was ex hausted hy my complaint or pois. oned in some wayside eating house, the evening we left Lara mie, 1 fell sick outright. That was a night which I shall not readily forget. The lamps did not go out; each made a faint shining in its own neighborhood, and the shadows were confounded together in the long hollow box of the cur. The sleepers lay in un easy attitudes; here two chums alongside, Hat upon their backs like dead folks; there a man sprawling on the floor, with his face upon his arm; there another half seated, with his head and shoulders unon the bench. The most passive were continually and rousrhlv shaken bv the movement of the train; others stirred, turned or stretched out their arms like children; it was surprising how many groaned and murmured- in their sleep; and as I passed to and fio, stepping across the prostrate, and caught now a snore now a ras. now a half-formed word, it gave me a measure of the worth- lessness 01 rest in that unresting vehicle. Although it was cold, was obliged to open my window; for the degradation of the air soon became intolerable to one who was awake and using the full supply o life. Outside in a glimmering night, 1 saw the black, amorphous hills shoot by unwcariedly into our wake. TJiev that long for morning have never longed for it more earnestly than I, and yet when dnv came, it was to shine upon the same broken unsightly quarter of the world. Miles upon miles, and not a tree, a bird or river. Only down the long, ster ile canyons, the tram shot hooting, and awoke the resting echo. That train was the one piece of life in all the deadly land; it was the one actor, the one spectacle fit to be observed in this paralysis of man and nature. And when I think how the railroad has been pushed through this un watered wilderness and haunt of savage tribes, and now will bear an immi grant for some 12 from the At lantic to the Golden Gate; how at each stage of the construction, roaring impromptu cities, full of gokl and lust and death, sprang up and then died away again, and are now but wavside stations in the desert; how in these uncouth places pigtailed Chinese pirates worked side by side with border ruffians and broken men from Europe, talking together in ; mixed dialect, mostly oaths, gam b ling, drinking, quarrelling and murdering like wolves; how the illumed hereditary lord of all America heard, in this last fastness the scream of the "bad medicine wagon," charioting his foes; and then, when I go on to remember that all this epical turmoil was conducted by gentlemen in frock coats, and with a view to nothing more extraordinary than a fortune and a subsequent visit to Paris, it seoms to me, 1 own, as if this rail way was the typical achievement of the age in which we live, as if it brought together, inio one plot, all the ends of theTorld and all the degrees of social rank, and offered to some great warrior the busiest, the most extended and the most varied .subiect of an enduring r.. r . Uiterary work. It it be romance if it be contrast, if it be heroism that we rcauire, what was iroy to this? Transmutation. An object lesson in the trans mutation of virtues is conveyed in this paragraph from an eHiange "Tennyson can take a worthless sheet of paper, and by writing a poem on it make it worth 5,000. That's genius. Vanderbilt can write a few words on a sheet, and make it worth 5,000,000. That's capital. The UnitedWstates can take an ounce and a quarter of gold, -and stamp upon it an 'eagle bird' and 'twenty cURara.' That's monev. rue mecnanic can iau 2nani( the material worth $5, and make it into a watch worth 100. That's skill. The merchant can take an article worth twenty-five cents and sell it for SI. That's business. A lady can purchase a very com fortable bonnet for 10, but she prefers to pay $100. That's, fool ishness The ditch digger works ten hours a day and shovels out three or four tons of earth for $2. That's labor." Boys of the old Hind. "When any man who has been a boy himself attempts to put on dignity and take the hoys of the present day across his journalistic knee because the' indulge m "idiotic enthusiasm," he starts the Irish in us, and the red hair snaps like stroking the fur of a cat the wrong way. J-i2t tne euiior so in clined look back twenty-five years and think of the deviltry that was going on among the boys at that time, and compare it with the quiet of to-day. Twenty-five years ago boys never thought of paying to go to a show, but crawled up to the window on boards, and got in, and-the audience could consid- j er itself m luck if they didn't: raise Hie root. l tic ooys oi a quarter of a century ago were reg ular cowboys compared with your truly good boys of the present da'. Why, man, don't you re member when a Sunday morning in summer would have seemed tame indeed if the people on the war to church did not find a pro cession of fifty wagons on Main street, placed there the night be fore by the "boys." Don't you remember how every wagon con tained a crockcr' crate, with a. dog inside, and each cage labeled with the name of some rare ani mal caught in the jungles of Afri ca or lassoed on the plains of Venezuela by Indians. Of course your great mind can go back to the time when every sign in town that was not printed on stone or cut in marble in the sidewalk, would appear in the wrong place in the morning, and you can recall how the long-faoed citizens who could not see any fun in such monkey work,, snid those boys would all fetch up in slate prison. "We have watched the state prison records for a quarter of a century, and not a single name of one of those old boys is recorded in any prison, but we can point out fif teen of them who occup' high position in all branches of business. There arc lawyers, as good as the state can produce, among those nocturnal menagerie organizers and smoke-house movers of the olden time. There is a judge of a western, state who used to make a specialty of putting zebra stripes on a white dog with a black brush. His decisions are said to be marked with no evidence that he ever worked half the night to car ry the northwest corner of r. smokehouse around a block to have it ready in the morning. There is a capitalist living in this city,twho helped place a 200 pound wooden boot, stolen from the front of a shoe store, upon a school house at Whitewater one night, but the exercise did him good, and nobody was Sun. harmed. PecJSs A man was carrying a coon he had caught when he met three lit tle boys in the road. All of them said excitedly, "Mister, give me that coon, give me that coon, give me that coou mister?" "Well, boys, I'll tell you what I will do. If you will tell me what party you belong to and why, I'll give it to the boy who gives the best reason for his faith." "I'm a Republican, because that party saved the Union," said one. 5tl'm a Green backer, because that party is in favor of plenty of mone3r." When the time for the third boy came, he said: "I'm a Democrat, 'case-I want thecbon." Arsio Orleans Democrat.. A thousand "million dollars is the estimated shrinkage- of Wall street values within tw.years. The agriculture of Western Ore gon will soon be governed by different conditions. The pro-, ducts of this region will be re quired to supply the wants of a city of one hundred thousand pop ulation, and other business points, on Puget Sound, and the Columbia will require as much mor. It is within the reason to believe that a quarter of a million population of cities in Western Oregon and Washington will have to be fed within"" ten years from this date. It shall be the aim of our agricul ture to supply the needs of this home market so thoroughly as to leave no room for California pro ducts to find sale. At the present time the carrying of products from California does much to support the line of steamers between San Francisco and Portland. Wo im port butter and cheese by the ton twice a week; fruits and vegeta bles, dried and canned products, manufactured products of many kinds that could be grown and put up here are brought here by hundreds of tons, and in return we send them the money received for our staples wheat and wool. A condition cf things that should not exist. Willamette Farmer. A London cable special says: The reneral feeling throughout Europe is of real uneasiness. It is felt that the relations of the great powers are daily growing more uncertain and dangerous and that the universal strain cannot be much longer sustained. The foreign policy of France has no part in producing this situation, but all diplomatists look with anx iety to the Balkan peninsula and a growing probability of a rupture between Ptussia and Austria. In the mean time Prince Bismarck is maturing and strenghtening his great alliance, which has 1 - its first object the relief of Germany from her intolerable military bur dens and for its sec-Hid general trannuiiity of Europe. It is not probable that .Mtiier can be at tained without a struggle, but a swift and decisive contest in the east, from which France could at present be excluded, would have no terrors for either Germany or Austria.
