Newspapers are closing out and dying
all over the state and territory. The
newspaper business, like other business,
is adversely affected by dull times, but
unlike other business a newspaper can
not retrench. It has to keep up to its us

tho reverse, cannot bo allowed to fall bo

There is considerable complaint from
men who havo reclaimed tide land that
tho muskrats are honey-combing and un
dermining the dykes. These little pests
burrow all over tho dykes and honey
comb them so that in somo places great
loss has resulted. Trapping them by the
hundred does not seem to diminish their
numbers and they are getting to be con
siderable of a plague. It would seem as
though tho legislature might do some
thing about it. A law forbidding musk
rats to burrow would be just as sensible
as other measures that will bo brought
before that body for action.

The best of all rules for successful
housekeeping and to make both ends of
the year meet is, "Pay as you go." Be
yond all countries in the world, ours is
the one in which tho credit system is the
most usedand tho most abused. Pass
books aro tho bane and pest of doinestio
economy a perpetual plague, vexation
and swindle. Abused by servants at the
store and house, disputed constantly by
housekeepers and dealers, they are a
temptation to both parties to do wrong.
"I never had that." ""Wo neglected to
entef this." "I forgot to bring tho
book." "Never mind, wo will raako a
note of it," and so it goes. But tho
worst of it is that housokcepers are
tempted to order what they have not the
means to pay for, and when the time for
settlement comes they aro straitened. A
family can live respectably on n very
moderate income if thev always tako the
cash in hand and buy where they can to
the best advantage. Then they will bo
careful first to get what is neoossary. Ex
tra comforts will bo had as they can af
ford them. But it is bad policy to buy
on credit. No wise dealer sells as cheap
ly on eredit as for cash.
Llaei Increase Height.
Lines increase height. A fact which
has great influence on the appearance (as
regards size) which an objoct presents, is
the presence of lines on it. Ladies un
derstand tkis, and by tho judicious
employment of stripes influence their
apparent figure to a remarkable degreo.
VJhe annexed illustration shows very
clearly tho iafiueneo of lines on the ap
parent size of an object. The figure
shows a square space divided horizontal
It by a series of lines. Tho height and
width of this space aro exactly oqual, as
may be proved by measuring then with a
pair of compasses, but to tho oyo they
appear very unequal.

The Northern Pacific Railroad Com
pany, by starting a new town, has made
property in Yakima City, "W. T., value
loss. Tho people of that once bustling
and lively burg kick, but tho iron horso
holdcth its head high and snortoth by.
Many a poor man has been broken up by
this speculation of the railroad com
pany's, and it is but another proof that
corporations havo no souls.
Tho Oregon Horso and Land Co, havo
ranches located in Lost Valloy, Eastern
Oregon, on the old LeBard ranche; one
at tho mouth of Sucker creek, near
Snako river, Idaho; ono at tho forks of
tho Sucker (the Dave Shea ranch); also
tho old McCusic ranch on Owyhee creek.
Tho range occupied is 85x150 miles in
Idaho and Oregon. Tho stock of horses
owned, were originally well selected Ore
gon mares whicli havo been bred to .Nor
man and Porcheron horses, and to-day
the average of tho entire baud is proba
bly not exceeded on this coast. They are
the largest horso owners in tho United
States, havinjr over 8,000 hoad of fine,
large Oregon horses.
The entiro press of western "Washing
ton has been heard from on tho proposi
tion of Senator Piatt of Connecticut to
admit tho territory as a state under the
name of Tacoma. The newspapers de
ride and ridicule the idea unanimously,
exoept the Tacoma press, and thero is
much indignation expressed that tho al
most sacred name of "Washington must
be sunk to givo placo to one representing
only the seat of land speculations of a
railroad ring. The peoploof tho territory
will never consent to bo admitted under
that name, and tho citizens of Tacoma
would do themselves more good in tho
long run by calling off their dog.
From LaGrando it is learned that loss
es of stock by tho recent storm wero less
than was anticipated. South of Prine
villo in what is known as tho "Oregon
desert," no cattlo wero lost, though tho
snow in some places was six to eight
feet deep. Between Prineville and tho
Columbia river every band suffored more
or less. A good estimate mado up from
the statements of a Iarga number of
ranchers and herders representing local
ities which took in tho entiro rango of
climato of the inland empire, is that the
loss to cattlo and sheep will be under 25
per cent. All stock is in very poor condi
tion now and could not live through an
other storm of any great severity. A note
from Umatilla states that cattle andshcep
are coming out all right.
Recently while a lady living in South
Portland was cleaning out a cupboard
she threw, among other things, some pa
pers into tho stove. In a few seconds a
loud report followed, blowing the stovo
doors open, and almost simultaneously,
two reports scattered the stove, wood and
ashes ovor the room. Sbo had unwitting
ly thrown three large cartridges into the
fire with tho papers. A few days pre
viously sbo narrowly escaped being
blown up by a can of powder, which one
of hr sons had placed in tho stove out
of reach of his younger brother. The
lady had started a fire in tho stove, and
by the merest chanco saw the reflection
of the flickering flame on the red powder
can, and withdrew it from tho stove. Tho
incident almost upset her nerves, but sho
saved tho nouso from total destruction.
Information is had from cood author
ity, says tho Victoria Times, that the
steamer Olympian will be placed on tho
Victoria routo early in March. The
North Pacific will bo drawn off and re
paired, she having been run a long timo
without being overhauled. "While this is
being done tho route will be supplied by
the Olympian and tho Starr. After tho
North Pacific is repaired, however, tho
Starr will bo placed on tho New West
minster route, and tho former will go
back on the Victoria routo onco more,
and continue to run that way all summer.
Tho Idaho which is now on tho New
"Westminster-Tacoma route will run to

pian, the Alaskan, which now lies idle at
Portland, will not bo brought around to

In an account of the flood on the Che
halis, tho Gray's Harbor News of tho
10th, .says: The Chehalis river and its
tributaries havo given us an old time
freshet. Tho water came within six in
ches of the highest point sinco the whites
sottled on this strean. Logs have como
down into tide water that were cut three
years ago, and quite a number of settlers
sustain a severe lo3S by their logs getting
adrift. The county will bo over $10,000
out by damage to roads and bridges, sus
taining a loss of nearly $7,000 on tho
Satsop bridge alone. The other heaviest
losers thus far reported are J. T. Forest
and the Wishkaw mill cempany: they
will each lose about $1000 apiece. Several
other3 sustain losses all the way from $100
to SL'jOQ. All tho wharves and warehouses
were more or less damaged. Steamers '
could not safely navigate abovo oosmop- t
olis for nearly a week, therefore we had T
no mails or communication with the out
side world for that period. The river j
was so full of logs, lumber shingles and .
all manner of floating debris that it is
thought tho big jam on the upper Che
halis had at last moved. Tho water
reached its highest point about 12 o'clock '
on "Wednesday night, at which time the i
whole business portion of Lower Monte-1
sano was overflowed, and the flats on the !
north sido of the river wero completely
covered. On the Harbor tho towns of
Hoquiam, Aberdeen and Cosmopolis were '
partially inundated during the hiyh tide '
periods of Tuesday and Wednesday, but
there was no damage done. Tho fa'l of
water was at least six inches the first
three days of tho weok, and taken in ,
conjunction with tho snow it is n wonder '
more damage was not done. Up to latest
accounts the water had fallen to three ,
feet and ell danger was over.
Tf hencp They Conic-Some I'ractical Rtoarls
on Razor.
"How do we keep our razors sharp?"
replied tho barber. "It is certainly an
artist's principal and most important
work, for upon the keenness of his knifo
depends his business success. Tho most
important part and tho fundamental se
cret is in having good hones, or stones,
as you would call them, and then using
thorn intelligently and discreetly.
"You see, the hone imparts tho true
edge and the strop merely whets it to a
proper degree of keenness after the razor
has been carefully honed. Tho greatest
ingenuity and perseverance have been
devoted to tho making of hones and tho
remarkablo materials and proces3 of
manufacture in tho business aro almost
entirely unknown to tho millions of per
sons who are ahaved every weok. First
in lino como the water stones, which aro
hard specimens collected in tho west,
principally in Colorado and tho spurs of
tho Rocky mountains. In thoso sections
there are hundreds of people who gain a
livelihood by collecting and dealing in
whetstones. A razor stono must neces
sarily be very hard, brittlo and smooth
faced. The water hones are merely a
finer grado of whetstones and cost from
soventy-five cents to two dollars. Tho
water stone must frequently be wet with
water and smoothed down by rubbing
with another stone or clso it is apt to
lo3o its fine sharpening qunlitics.
"There aro many kinds of razor hones,'
continued tho barber, as he slapped the
razor recklessly over the palm of his hand
several times and applied more lather.
"Every good barber has his preferences,
yet there are some who can't tell a good
one when they seo it. That kind of a
barber usually has a razor with an edge
liko a cheese-knife, handles your head
like a block of wood and tho mere pass
ing of the blado. over a man's cheek
would make even a book agent wince.
Then, among others, is tho glass bono a
block of the hardest flint glass, carefully
smoothed of even tho slightest inequali
ties of surface and mounted on a block
of wood. I don't liko them, although
they havo admirable qualities for im
parting a dainty edge, for a razor snarp
ened on them of ten irritates the skin and
makes tho faco sensitive. I don't know
whether it is the peculiar edge which
makes tho smarting or the soda or other
ingredients of tho glass adhciing in
mmutc particles to tue steel, uut no mat
ter what it is, n glass-honed razor don't
givo tho best satisfaction to my customers.
tV glass bono costs four or live dollars.
"Yes. an experienced barber can at a
glanco perceive tho peculiarities of the
edge of any razor and tell you what par
ticular kind of a bono was used in sharp
ening it. The hone I like best, and the
most wonderful in material and construc
tion, is that of petrified German hicKory.
Hero is one." said the knight of tho brush
and steel, as he exhibited a small smooth,
dark stone, hard as adamant and
mounted in a wooden block. "Thj
German hickory.' he resumed,
as he drew the bljde across the custom
er's face and removed it with a clear,
ringing sound, "is in itself a wood almost
as hard as stone. It is cut from large
cultivated forests, then carefully sea
soned, saw&d into blocks about tkLt size
and imbeded in a psculiar wet clay soil,
where it is allowed to remain for about
eight years. Whoa removed the wooden
blocks aro discovered to have turned to
stone. Their manufacture is confined
solely to Germany and Prussia. Tho ex
periment of petrifaction in this pirtica
lar line has been tried in many Liuds,
but has never proved successful outsido
of tho countries named. That is, I guess,
because of tho psculiar soil. Westphalia,
in Prussia, is where they are principally
mado and there is ono mill 'there which
constantly employs 100 hands in cutting,
mounting and dressing theso hones,
without which I would bo lo3t. There
is a big profit in their manufacture, for
tho comparative cost of production is
very small, while a stone of this size
when completed is worth about eight
dollars. Thoy give the best, keenest and
cleanest edge to a razor that can be pro
duced. Of course, somo barbers are ig
norant of their proper use or dislike the
labor of boning tneir razors, but wuilo 1
remain at this shop 1 shall give my pray
erful consideration to that branch of tho
business. Next'."
