Lighting gas with the ringer is a feat any body may perform. Let a person, in his slippers, walk briskly over a woolen car pet, scuffling his feet thereon, or stand upon a chair, with its legs upon four tumblers to insulate it, and there be nibbed up and down on the body a few times with a muff by a second individual, nd ho will light his gas by simply plac ing his finger to the tube. It is only nec essary to take the precaution not to touch anything or be touched by anybody during the trial of the experiment. The shock of electricity required by the pro cess we have described is discharged by contact with another object. One person mast turn on tho gas while the other Had Cleaned 'Em Out. They're tell iag a story in the upper country on one of tho old Linn county pioneers who went East as one of the excursionists to visit the scenes of his boyhood days-, which he had not seen or heard from since ho left, over 30 years ago. The "old home" to be visited was in Pike county, Missouri, and the pioneer hero is an old unreconstructed Democrat. On arriving at the station of his old home the pioneer asked of some bystanders wjao was the oldest inhabitant of the town. Directions were given him where he' could find a hardware dealer who had been & resident of the village for many ,.r- wu : ci "i i ir found Ins mnn and commenced as fol J '3 f UUi (111 um pieneer of Oregon, having shaken the dust from this town about 30 years ago, and have not heard from any relatives emcothen.

A TALK OF TWO CITIES. rrorrm of the 'TlKllftnte" Trial In Port land. "Lines down" has prevented us from getting any word of tho trial, and the following is collated from tho Portland papers. The case was called in the United States District Court before Judge Deady, last j Tuesday. About seventy spectators were ..resent" The jury consisted of B. F. M. Linch, IL C. Ringo, A M. Shibbey, Seba Norton. Vf. W. Culver, M. Cunningham, Hugh Herron, A Andrews. J. D. Arthurs. Geo. "VY. Houch. Cms Gibbon and J. B. Harris. For Bovle the counsel were Messrs. Johnson. Fanner. Bybee, and for the defendant. Messis. Williams, Mal lorv, Hill and Winton. Boyle testified that in Astoria he was working in a saloon. After the fire he was notified to leave town, but failed to go. He was arrested and lodged in joil, where he was visited by the vigilantes. They took him to their committee room, handcuffed and blindfolded him, put a stick gag in his mouth and marched him up a hill. They gave him his choice of leaving town or receiving twenty-flvo lashes on his bareback. He refused to go, and they advised him to write to his Earents, and asked him the address of is parents. They then ordered him to halt, took off the 'handcuffs and warned him that if he attempted to move they would kill him. They then gave him twenty-five lashes on tlie back. On cross-examination he testified that when he was in Socorro, New Mexico, a party of vigilantes ordered liim out of town, and he declined to go, when ho was allowed to remain unmolested. He told this circumstance to the Astoria vigi lantes, but not to intimate that they could not drive him out. While drunk one night he accidentally discharged a Sistol in "Russian Bob's' saloon. He ad played poker and faro, and was about gambling houses a good deal, but denied trying to open a gambling-house about Astoria. He was known as John Jones, because when some strangers asked him his name he thought it was none of their business, and replied "Jones.' He had never told anybody that he was a bad man. He had a 'dispute, but no fight, with "Russian Bob,' lxut a woman. Witness could not po.-itively identity the man who had handcuffed him. He left Cannda in 1873; went back, and left again in 1882 for Arizona, where he had been before. On the second visit he re mained about eight months. He got ac quainted with a good many cow-boys there; did not claim to be an expert shot, and had never made that claim in Asto ria; had been accustomed to carrying a pistol; never had any trouble with the Arizona cow-boys, in Astoria he had worked for three days tending bar, but during tho balance of his residence thero was spending money he had brought there; had never voted in this country; he had a room in the Parker house in As toria and slept there sometime at night; he was in the saloons of "Swilltown," and occasionally jriaj'ed cards there. On re direct examination ho stated that he knew a man in Astoria called "Arizona Jack," but hethe witness) was not that man. It was customnry tor saioon-keep-ers to keep a six-shooter or some other weaixm under the bar, and when he was tending bar he kept one for use m case anyone attempted to molest him. In the afternoon Jo. buprenant testm- ed that he was present at the citizens' committee meeting when Boyle was ex amined. About six members of the com mittee left on special business during the meeting. Witness went on the hill where iioyle was whipped, and there were thirty-five or forty other citizens. There was one light in the party. Wit ness did not know whether the vigilantes were armed or not. Arriving at the hill, there was some talk among the com mittee about scaring Boyle with the idea that he was to be hanged. There was some talk of a rope. He was asked if he would prefer to Ikj lashed or hanged, and ho replied that ho didn't want to bo hanged. He was asked if he had anv let ter or trinkets he wished to send to his mother. He asked that his parents re ceive no information that he was hanged. After he was whipped he was made to kneel and swear that ho would attempt to injure no one present, and that he would leave Astona, never to return. The night was verv dark, with no moon. The whipiing, twenty-five lashes, was done by Capt. Johnson, with a cat-o- nme-tails. borne of the blows were light and others heavy. Bo vie was bare to tho waist. Capt. Johnson was selected to do the whipping- because he was a seaman and supposed to be able to do the work in good shape. Witness was acting as special policeman while the committee was in session, lie uearu jjovio say oe fore the committee that he was a gam bier by profession. Many of Johnson's blows struck Boyle below the belt, where he was protected by his clothing. The committee was composed of about 200 of the best citizens of the town merchants and business men. An evening session of the court was held, during which tho testimony ot a large number of witnesses in behalf of the defense was taken. At the defense rested and the plaintiff commenced in troducing testimony in rebuttal. "What Time Ik It." Tho lack of unanimity among the clocks and watches of Astoria has long been the subject of painful knowledge to niairy worthy citizens whose respective chronometers fail to agree in indicating tho current hour, lo had two watches anywhere within three minutes of each other is very rare and the keeping of ap poinlments'is rendered uncertain there- bv. A new element lias now entered in to the calculation which may mend mat ters as far as wo of Astoria are concern ed. Tho railroads of tho country havo adopted a new standard of time, the ope ration of which auccts tho local time very differently. According to tho new svstem which has recently gone into use. it is three minutes and fifty-eight seconds past twelve at New lork city by the old standard when the clocks strike twelve. Farther tho time changes Jess and less from the old standard until tho me ridians-of this coast are reached, when the change is the other way, and railroad time is faster than the old time used to be, until by the time one gets to the longitude of The Abtobian office he wouiannaii uiswaicuTverexaariang rail road time that he would be nine minutes and fifty-two seconds faster than what might be considered standard time in the same locality. Muhicipalty after muni- cipany uub umciuuy rccugmzc-u me new time, and although Astoria is not what might be styled a railroad city, yet a due regard for the eternal fitness of things will impel us to keep up with the proces sion by pushing tne nanus of our respect ive clocks and watches about ten mm utes ahead. The clocks of a continent are being changed to correspond to the new time ana sixty minions oi people are euuui" their meals, and going to work and gut ting by a different system of tune than they were a short time ago. The princi ple arrived at is uniformity. When tho clock at the Western Union Telegraph office at New York is striking 12, the ciocK in me uxiicago ouice in Kiniuug n, in tho Denver office tho clock strikes 10, the San Francisco office tho clock strikes 9. The matter has been under discussion among railroad men for sever al years, and it was finally decided to make the seventy-fifth meridian of west longitude from Greenwich the base of thp new svKtpm. If the result to us of Astoria shall bo to give a set standard on time to which all tickers shall acknowl edge sway, then those eastern railroad men will have contributed something of rood to our civilization, and aided all in the observance of that punctuality which is said to be ''the politeness of kings.

The d'randnt Hnellinp in America. Among tho marvelous stories told of American millionaires, none is nioro wonderful than that relative to the career of Henry Villard. In boyhood's days we read stories of men who from poverty rose to dazzling affluence, and sprang from low estate to princely splendor, but no stranger tale was ever told than that of the poor newspaper man at 20 a week ho is now building the hnest residence on the American continent. It is situated on Murray Hill, tho 'ob Hill" of New York City; was begun last summer and eclipses anything in that luxurious metropolis that has yet been designed for private residence. It occu pies an entire olock, having a frontage of 200 feet. That part which he will occupy is on the comer of Fifty-first street. It's frontage is GO feet and its depth 100 feet. The other wing will be similar, except that it is divided into tnree parts, and between the wings is a "court 89 feet in width and 73 feet in depth. The portion of the building behind the court extend? back 40 feet beyond the wings aud is a double house of itself. In the center of the court will be placed a magnificent fountain, around which will be a broad drive and in each corner a grass-plot. It ill be inclosed by a massive fence of iron with stone posts. E3ch house com municates directly with the court. The extension of the great building is more grand than beautiful. It Is the result of a combination of Roman and Florentine architecture, the plans of the Cancelleria Palace at Rome and the Par nese Palace being copied by the archi tects. Lue material is sandstone, tne light-gravish amber-stone of which Trin ity Church was built. Everything is massive and there is little attempt at ornament. Huge blocks of stone are piled one upon another and overtopped by a heavy cornice of the same material. "Tho wings are three Btories in height besides the basement and attic stones. From tho sidewalk to the top of tho cornice the measurement is 68 feet The basement and first story are rusticated and others plain stone ashler with the angles strengthened by rustication. The front of the two center houses is sup ported by five arcades with heavy col umns of polished granite. Dutch tiles cover the roof. The whole effect is severe and dignified. .Entering the spacious portal ot the illard residence the visitor finds himself in a magnificent reception room, fourteen by twenty-eight feeC. Everything hero is in inlaid wood floor, ceiling, walls and columns. On either side open the draw ing-rooms. They are each nineteen by twenty-eight feet, and are being nnished in mahogany, inlaid with light woods, satin wood and maple being noticeable. Between the pilasters will be hung rich tones are a light reddish brown and a light yellow. The drawing-rooms and reception-rooms are so arranged that they can be thrown into one spacious apart ment 100 feet in width and twenty-eight m depth. Jbroni the reception room a hall four teen feet in width and fortv-twoin length leads to the music room. Aladdin's lamp never revealed a hall more magnificent. It is entirelv in mosaic. The material is yellow Italian marble. The floor is in (Jhaillon marble in small pieces woven into beautiful designs. The mantel is a master-piece of the sculptor from an ltal ian design, and the whole apartment was executed bv Italian artists in the style of ...,.i,. o"". .i. 'vuo. i.r.11 ;a spanned by three semi-circular arches, in Sienna marble, with sculpture by Louis St. Gaudens. A vestibule following the same plan leads out of tho hall back of the drawing-room. The music room, however, is the chef d'eouvre of the decorator s art. it is a diminutive theater, 48 bv 24 feet in di mension and 32 feet from floor to ceiling, extending to the third story. It is in the style of tho Francis I room of Fontaino bleau Palace. The colors are white and gold. A wainscoting, eight feet in hight, in carved pino, surrounds the room. At one end is a gallery for the musicians. The ceiling is an elliptical vault, and ev ery detail shows the skill of the artist. Between tho music room and vestibule marble stairs twelve feet broad lead to the upper stories. Again the tone is yel low. An elaborate Itenaissance ceiling spans the stairs. The elevator-way occu pies iue remaining space. Across the hall are the mam dining' room and breakfast room, which can be thrown into one apartment, 2J by GO feet in size. Carved woods again replace the marble. The room is executed in English oak inlaid with white mahogany. Tho ceiling is divided by beams cased with English oak and the carved Inezes, three feet in width, are inlaid with floral de signs and inscriptions. The two mantels are of red Verona marble. The upper stones are m keeping with tho splendor below, although of course not so elabo rate, lho general style is Italian lienais sauce. The furniture will be especially mag nificent. That of the drawing-rooms will be upholstered nnd of colors har monizing with the decorations, all the designs being original, and the ht tings throughout, locks, gas fixtures, car pets, etc., will be made specially for tho purpose. Tho cost ot the building un furnished will bo an even million dollars. Ui this tho decorating of the drawing rooms cost S50.000: the dining room?. 20,000; the hall, $30,000; and tho music room, S20.000. As much more will be expended on other work in the latter room a year hence. To finish the interi or of Mr. viuard's house necessitates the expenditure of 250,000. The upper floors are now about completed and tho furniture is arming. Tne structure when completed will be the most magnificent residence building in the country, far surpassing tho Van derbilt houses. It is the first attempt maae 10 reprouuee an Aiaiion paince in America, ilenry Villard's house is palace, in fact. Thero was a. game of poker once With two men at the table.

It will not be until men of money outside the town recognize our willingness to help our selves that capital will come to take ad vantage of the unexampled facilities for investment of which whangdoodle is full. It is, therefore, with peculiar pleas ure that wo call the attention of our read ers to the fact that a butcher wagon for Bill Pritchard (who in our advertising columns calls the attention of our readers to his place of business) has been built by McKee & Furdv, the popular black smiths on Main, street, whose card we publish in another place.
