Henry Sale of "Woodland farm, in this
vicinity, makes a good showing with his
poultry from March 1 to August 1. He
says: ""With 22 hens I have received 103
dozen eggs, raised 144 chickens and 80
ducks (it being more profitable to hatch
and raise ducklings with hens than
ducks). Feed for chickens and duoks
during that time cost $20. Spring chick
ens sell at $4.50 and $5 tier dozen, ducks
from 75 cents to $1 apiece, eggs from 25
cents to d5 cents per dozen.
This session of the circuit court has been
almost totally devoid of interest except
to those directly concerned in the suits,
and beyond a formal record of the day's
transactions but little attention has been
bestowed upon it. Yesterday, however,
came up a question for adjudication,
which was ably argued and promptly de-
ciaea. xiast weeK one a. uamatta was
indiotedby the grand jury for alleged
assault with intent to kill. The alleged
assault was committed on the north side
of Sand Island. "When the cage was called
yesterday, Fulton Bros, appeared for the
defense, and McBride and "Winton for the
state. The point raised was did the
court have jurisdiction; could a man be
tried in Oregon for an offense committed
in "Washington territory waters?
Seldom has a case been argued in the
county with greater force or keener rea
soning, each side advancing both law and
.logic m support of their views concerning
this question which is one of importance
as establishing a precedent.
Judge Taylor decided that the court
had jurisdiction in the matter, and the
case was given to the jury without evi
dence or further argument, a verdict of
guilty being rendered by that body.
Enlarging the County Boundaries.
There is on the lower Nehalem in
Tillamook county a large area of conn
try that is naturally tributary to Astoria
as a distributing center and which is be
ing filled up by settlers who, desiring a
market for their produce, are agitating
the question of annexation. They are
reported as being desirous to be set off
from Tillamook county pnd incorporated
into Clatsop county. The idea has not
yet, assumed tangible shape, but seems to
be that if .Clatsop county will continue
the present road down the Seaside to the
county line, a distance of some sixteen
miles, they will complete a road from
their settlement northward to meet it.
It will require hearty cooperation on
the part of all concerned and some speo
ialjlegislative enactments next winter, all
of which are among the possibilities.

My own idea is that the day is not far
distant when the coast counties, and not
the region known as the "inland empire,"
shall supply not only Astoria and the
river towns, but the metropolis as well,
with good and healthy beef. The tide of
live beef has been in past years constant
ly ebbing toward the ocean, but I look
for a reflux that shall ere bix years more,
drive it up stream. To begin with, I will
admit that the bunch grasi makes fatter
beef than any other sort of herbage.
And there you have to stop. There is
nothing else to bo said in favor of the
great plains. The hot summers often
render it difficult for the lowing herds to
obtain a sufficient supply of water any
where contiguous to the "pastures. Then
there are the cold winters with the deep
snow that covers the grass so that an ox
can get no sustenance, and the ice so
hard that when ho reaches tho brook ho
can get no drink, and must therefore
perish of thirst. Add to this the fact
that the eastern counties are settling up
rapidly and tho laud onco used for pas
turage is now being rapidly converted
into orchards and fields of grain, and you
will readily discern reasons why tho cat
tle trade in the coast counties of Wash
ington territory (and Oregon, too, for that
matter) should increase rather than
diminish from year to year. There aro
no cold winters in these coast counties;
and the cattle that have been allowed to
hibernate for themselves in densely
wooded copses whore the browse was
good, have frequently come out fatter
and more marketable than those which
have remained in barns and stood to hay
all winter. And when it comes down to
the consideration of dairying, nobody will
deny the superiority of clover for pro
ducing butter and cheese. Tom Merry

Those who assume to know predict
that the Central Pacifio will lease the

that the recent visit of Henry Villard to

days ago, he remarked to n Portland

The Only Correct Version
or a Historical
George," said his father, with a coun
tenance more in sorrow than in auger.
"George, some one has cut down my fa
vorite cherry tree. Do you know any
thing about it?'
Young Washington did not quail before
his father's accusing glance. Ho looked
him straight in the eye, and an express
ion of honest resolution gleamfd in the
clear eyes and frank countenance.
"My father," he said, "I will not de
ceive you. I do know something about
it, but that is not -the issue at all. You
have, in effect, charged me with being
privy to tho destruction of your favorite
tree. Now, the question is, since you
have filed information and laid this
charge against me, what do von know
about it?"2 .
"I know that you have a hatchet," re
plied his father sternly, I know what a
boy with a hatchet is liable to do. I
know that some one has cut down mv fa
vorite cherry tree '
Stop right here," interrupted the fu
ture father of his country. You say this
was your tree?"
I do."
'How came it yoars?'"
I planted it,"
'Now sir, are you certaiu it was not on
this farm when you came here?"
"No, sir, it was not."
"Then why do you say so?"
"Why do 1 say what?
'That's right; ovade, quibble, crawl out
of it somehow. All right. If yon don't
want to answer a plain simple question
you don't have to.
"But I didn't say it was on tho farm
when I camo here.
'Oh, very well, deny it. Is there any
other retraction vou would like to
"I don't retract anything. I mprely
declared that I never said that tree was
on tho farm when I came hero."
"Oh, well, father don't get excited and
talk loud. You may go back on your en
tire statement if yon wish. Perhaps you
will next try to make us believe that this
farm wasn't here either when you came."
"Why, of course it was here. I don't'
"Didn't you say a moment ago that it
"That was the tree!"
"Ah, yes; yon turn it off on the tree
now. lou've been talking about tho tree
all this time, then?"
"Why, certainly I have."
"Then you just admitted that it was
hero when you came here?"
"No, my son, that was the farm."
"But not half a dozen questions ago
you admitted that. You said in these very
words, 'Why, of course it was here,' did
you not?"
"I said thoso words, but I was speaking
of tho farm."
"And yet you said but this very mo
ment that all this time you had been
talking about the tree. It is useless to
continue this examination. My father,
of all human vices lying is tho common
est, and I doubt not it is the worst. It
blunts our moral sensibilities, it leads us
to distort and exaggerate simple state
ments of facts; it blurs our powers of in
telligent observation, until even a man of
ordinary scholarship and intellectual de
velopment is unable to tell whether he is
talking about a farm or a cherry tree.
The complaint is dismissed. I doubt very
much if you can even establish the fact
that you over owned a tree. Go to the
nursery, and if you intend planting a tree
in the place of the one you imagine you
have lost, you had better take a man with
you to show you tho ground, lest you
might plant the tree in your hat. You
may go."
Sadly tho old man turned away, but ho
told the man who helped him plant the
new tree that if ho had a hundred boys
he wouldn't let another one of them
study law. Burdelle.
