Astoria, Oregon, Sunday Morning, November 4, 1883
The two hundred Oregon pion
eers, the youngest of them a settler
of 1S54, who have just arrived in
New York on an excursion, could
tell some wonderful stories ol pro
gress, heroism and trial. Turning
their faces toward the setting sun
in the days when the star of cm
pire shone but very dimly in the
west, they have lived to see stately
cities grow up where they corraled
their wagon trains on a pathless
prairie, to see railroad tracks along
their old trail, art and culture
where they fought with painted
savages, and populous industry
where they found a wilderness.
More honor should be paid to
them than to haughty lord or be
wigged justice from across the At
lantic. They are the men who
have planted new stars in our flag,
sown the seeds of civilization, re
finement and liberty, and watched
and guarded their work till the
perfiaps, the magnitude of their
work through the danger, privation
and discomfort, they toiled on, and
the whole. land has shared in their
reward. K&cark Kcvx.
Several instances of applying
the mad stone to poisonous snake
bites have been reported by the
newspapers recently, and the
testimony of tho patients is that
in every case the stone has ab
sorbed the poison. It is a popu
lar belief in the south and the
west that a person who possesses
one of these stones is armed
against all venomous creatures;
but the savants agree that the
madstone is nothing more than
the concretion found in the stom
ach of the deer, and that it has no
medical properties whatever. Prof.
Holmes, the Atlanta Covslitulioji
says, dissected one the size df a
hen's egg, and found its nucleus
to be a perfect white oak acorn.
It was covered by four layers of
phosphates and carbonate of lime
and iron and some silex. There
were two impressions, apparently
made by the teeth of the deer be
fore swallowing the nut. Acorns
are a favorite food of Carolina
deer. In another specimen Prof.
Holmes found the nucleus to be a
E. J. Smith, the count3r coroner,
says the Tucson (Arizona) Citizen,
has four gold fish hooks that he
unearthed in the South American
placers. He was mining in a
river bed near the city of Call, in
the state of Cauca, United States
of Columbia, in 18GG, when he
pulled up a small tree by the roots
and there in the sand lay an even
baker's dozen of regularly shaped
gold fish hooks of the ordinary
size. They are not bent in the
Limerick fashion. "Without doubt
they are the work of prehistoric
Indians, governed by the Incas.
"When Mr. Smith returned to San
Francisco he gave some away, lost
others, and now has only four left.
He has been repeatedly asked to
put his price on these, but refuses
to do so. The other da' he re
fused an offer of $20 for one. It
was sucli trifles as these that ex
cited the avarice of Pizarro and
other vandals, who tore down bet
ter governments than have ever
ocoupied the same territory since.
The first section of the bill to
regulate the sale of liquors in
"Washington Territory reads. "The
board of county commissioners of
each county may grant license for
the sale of malrj spirituous and
vinous liquors, if deemed expedi
ent upon application by petition
of thirty-of the resident freehold
ers of the town, village or pre
cinct where the sale ol such
liquors is proposed to take place,
setting forth that the applicant
is a man of respectable character
and standing, and is a resident of
this territory, and praying that
license may be issued to him, such
application to be filed tn the
office of the county auditor, and
upon the payment into the county
treasury of such sum as the board
may require, not less than 500
for each license, and upon the
compliance of the provisions of
"I see you are growing a mus
tache, George," said she as she
caressed the lappel of his coat.
"Ye-es.1' stammered George,
blushing furiously. I I am try
incr to cultivate one. "Don't it
feel funny on your lip?" she ask
ed. "Well, no," he laughed, re.
gaining his composure; "it seems
to be quite natural." "I wonder
how a mustache would feci on my
lip," she said, with a far-away,
absent look in her eves. "You
needn't wonder long, then," said
George, as he bent down. "Oh,
you forward thing!" sheexclimed;
"I've got a mind to make you
take that back again." And he
A sad state of heathenism seems
to exist in the lumber region of
eastern Texas. The people live
in rude huts in the greatest filth
and squalor, are ignorant and bru
tish in all respects, and have for
their only recreation weekly
"dances," at which the scraping of
old fiddles and the dances them
selves are only accompaniments to
wild excesses and shameless de
bauchery. In one section the mill-
owners recentiv started a school
for their own children and offered
its advantages free to all those liv
ing in the woods, but the offer was
universally refused, sending chil
dren to school "would spoil
An insider in Oregon Transcon
tinental savs: "All these rumors
and false statements of Oregon
Transcontinental have grown out
of the fact that the company is
an abnormal organization. it
builds railroads but it does not
own the roads it has built. The
company has assets, but the peo
ple can't sec assets, and in a period
of depression they are more sus
picious of Oregon Transconti
nental than they would be of a
railroad whose property they could
Among the exhibits at the for
eign exhibition at Boston, are sets
of terra-cotta ware marked "free,"
meaning that no duties were to be
charged upon them, A visitor was
recently detected taking away a
piece, and he innocently asserted
that he thought the mark author
ized him to take one. An account
of stock was immediately made,
and as a score of similar articles are
missing, it is thought that other
visitors have made the same mis
take. John Quincy Adams received
a salary from the United States
government for sixty-nine years,
and the sum total must have
amounted to half a million. At
the close of his presidential term
he had fifty-two years of office
holding, and his salary had aggre
gated 425,000; still, he had
seventeen years of congress after
this, and died at the capital at a
The Philadelphia JYetftf ex
plains the difference between a
"newspaper man" and a "journal
ist." It says: "A 'newspaper
man' is one who has been writing;
editorials for eighteen or twenty
years A 'journalist' is one who
began police reporting about a
An oyster will Jive to the age
of twenty-six years. That is, in
the sea, he will. In the restau
rant the chances are decidedly
against him. Sometimes he lasts
a long time in the restaurant; oh,
a very long time. But he does
not live nearly so long as he lasts.
It is stated that a Texas hen sat
for three days on a nest full of hail
stones before she discovered that
they were not eggs. The funniest
part of the story is that she didn't
hatch out an iceberg or two. But
perhaps the Texas liar was not en
joying good health.
