The deep fiea fishing company lately organized, which had such a disastrous experience some time ago, has had a new surf boat built and yesterday bogan ope rations again near the Seaside. The Sunset telephone company are stringing polos eastward from tho central office. It would be no harm to do a littlo stringing westward. Those wires give a little too much toolian harp business to bo pleasant.

The evolutions of the Knights in full uniform at Occident hall last evening was witnessed by a large gathering, who tcsti fled by their plaudits their ipireciation -off tho skilfully executed movements. Sel dom hps there been a more numerously attended entertainment and the arrange ments in every respect wore all that could be desired. The Sumner li. Head goes to sea to day, and south by west the captain shapes her course, while tho mate will boss the sailors and the sailors clew tho rail, and the breeze will push the sail with mighty force. And the stanchions will be hoisted up and spread before the breeze, and the bilge be tightly bolted to the wheel, while the damps, and cords, and lockers, and the frames and bunging iBees"are all snugly stowed away within the keelj while the cat-head gently mews aa-it-sniffs -the morning wind, and the dolphin-striker many a dolphin struck, and tho bob-stay gently bobs as to wind'ard it inclines, while tho lazy-jacks are loafing at the truck. Correct llrtry Word of It. The talk of money being tight, and hard times would quickly cease were it made the popular rule to pay ondemund all debts possible to be paid. The big loads cannot be lifted so easily, and in pinching times like theBo there is excuse for their nonpayment; but this is not the case with the little debts owed by people hav ing the money in their pockets to pay them. - When monev becomes a little "tight" people are too apt to turn off meir creauora wiiu a laisenooa. i.no debt is not paid, the debtor is none the more comfortable, whilo the creditor is distressed and subjected to tho incon venience of calling again. By the time a hundred or a thousand debtors have put into practice this system of fraud and falsehood, the cry of hard times is heard, a cry that would not have been heard had the other and better practice been followed of paying to tho utmost ability of each individual debtor.

Tho general health of the place is ex ceptionally gooa, aitnongn a few cases of green currant and eoos&berrv fever ! have been reported. The moral seuti- , mtiit is omowhat impioved, aside from , an occasional growl from some jealous Mrrcurti correspondent, who seems to de light in mud dinging.

Rr.3IDEKT. The Astoria Land Grant. In the house of representatives on tho 22d, among other bills tho bill forfeiting the Oregon Central land grant was press ed upon tho house for consideration. The Oregon Central measure proved successful, consideration of the sinking fund bill being voted down yeas 7C; nays 130; and the other propositions without division. Cobb opposed the bill, on the ground that it proposed to forfeit a portion of the grant which had been earned by the road. George took the same view ns Cobb, and made an argument in support of the bill. In the course of his remarks he re ferred to tho decision of the suprome court of Oregon, with regard to the grant to the Oregon Central, and asserted that the Oregon Central to which tho decision referred was not the Oregon Central to which the bill related, intimating at the same time that Cobb was misleading tho house. This aroused Cobb, and he declared that h had in his possession a letter show ing George to be a railroad attorney. Geo go entered a vigorous denial to this declaration, and defied Cobb to pro duce the letter. Cobb said that when tho gentleman ac cused him of attempting to mislead tho house ho was mistaken in his man. George disclaimed any intention of charging that Cobb had purposely mis led the house, but the fact remained that ho was doing so. Pending further debate, the house ad journed. Mtmorlol Da Service.

Ward is held in $30,000 bail, the amount fixed m order for Ins arreBt. Al ter spending tho dav in endeavoring to find 30.000 bail, ho was taken to the Ludlow street jail and lodged in a cell ther. He refuses to see auv one. Gen. ! C. S. Grant states that the rumor that his son, U. S. Grant, Jr., had fled to es cape arrest was wholly without founda tion. His son had gone to Morrison, N. J., where he lives, and would be at his office at the usual, hour. Both his son.3, the general Baid, were in town, and in tended to remain here. They had no money to make a trip to 0anad3, even if they wanted to get there. He was very indignant that tho report had been cir culated, or that credence should have been given it. He i3 almost completely broken down by the disclosures which have become public since the failure. The shock will shorten his life many years. He converses freely with hi3 intimate friends upon his troubles. He seeks seclu sion as much as possible and fears that he has lost the respect and confidence of the country at large. The general is so sensi tive that he shuns newspapers; therefore he has still to learn of the magnitude of the collapse and tho almost unparalleled extent of Ward's fraudulent operations.

Tho introduction of illuminated ballet girls has greatly added to tho attractions of tho spectacular stage. Girls with elec tric lights on their foreheads and bat teries concealed in tho recesses of their clothing first made their appearanco a year ago, but as yet the uso of illuminated girls has not sprebd boyond the stage. There is, however a great future awaiting the grand idea of incandescent girls, and thoro is reason to believe that in a very short time privato houses will bo lighted by girls instead of stationary electric lights. The formation of the Electric Girl Lighting Company is an event Fecond in importance only to the invention of elec tric lights. This company proposes to supply girls of fifty caudle power each in quantities to suit householders. Tho girls are to bo fed and clothed by the company, and customers will, of course, be permitted to select at the company's warehouse whatever stylo of girls may please their fancy. A very leautiful design for u front hall girl will soon be on exhibition. Tho present system of lighting the front hall of a dwelling house has the disadvantage that tho light whether it be a gas light or an el -ctric light must be kept burn ing all the evening, and that a servant must be employed to answer tho bell. Thus there is a doublo expense tho cost of the light and tho cost of tho servant. Tho Electric Girl Lighting Company will furnish a beautiful girl of fifty or a hun dred candle power, who will bo on duty from dusk till midnight or as much later a9 may be desired. This girl will remain seated in the hall until some one rings the front door bell. She will then turn on her electric light, open the door, admit tho visitor, and light him into the recep tion room. One girl thus performs the dutie3 of lighting tho front hall and an swering the bell, and her annual cost' is much less than that of a servant and a gas light. If, however, the householder shoud desiro to keep tho olectric girl constantly burning and to employ another servant to answer the bell, thero can ba no doubt that the electric girl, posing in a pic turesque nttitude, will add much to tno deooration ot tno nouse. Under tho present system electric lamps or gas burners are fixtures, and cannot bo moved from place to place. The electric girls, on ihe contrary, are moveable. One girl can bo mado to give as much light as a large sized drawing room chandelier, and she can bo moved from ono room to another, leading the way to supper, for example, and placed wherever she can do the most good. There can be no comparison between a beautifully designed and chastely exe cuted electrio girl and a massive chande lier that constantly threatens to fall on somebody's head; and every householder of aesthetic instincts will bo glad to ex change his chandeliers for girls. An inexpensive electrio girl with one or two candle power will bo of great uso when a person desires to go from one room to another in a dark houso. In stead of having to carry a candle in his hand and incur tho risk of dropping it or of having it blown out by a draught of air, the nappy possessor of an electric girl can turn her on and send her beforo him to light tho way. The student who is now troubled by tho flicker of his gas light, in his inability to move tho elec trio light from ono part of his desk to another, can be made perfectly happy by an electric girl with a ground glass shade, who will take any position that tho student may de3irb in order to throw light on his book or paper. No ono who becomes accustomed to such n girl will think of returning to old fashioned methods of lighting. The now company propose lo furnish tho new light at n littlo less thin tho chargo made by the Edison and Bmsh companies, and' promise that in n short time their light will be decidedly cheap r than gas. Their plant already comprises 2,500 girls, and bet i oloctrio boys aid footmen will be at the command of tho public as soon as certain experiments as to the possibility of enabling electrio boys to givo n steady light are completed. Mr. Gilbert Cole, "Wayne, Woyre Co., Mich., says he has used the won derful pain-reliever, St., Jacobs Oil, and oau truthfully say, it cured bim of rheumatism. ASK FOR "THE BOSTON" RUBBER BOOT.
