Captain J. A. Brown, one of tho board
of pilot commissioners, says the Oregoni
anf yesterday reoe'ved models for two
pilot boats to bo used off the Columbia
river entrance. One is intended to bo 83
feet long, 20 feet beam and 11 feet depth
of hold, and about 75 tons burden. The
other is nearly of the same dimensions,
but slightly sharper. Tho cost of cither
boat will approximate 10,030. Captain
Brown will come down and submit the
models to the board tc-morrow.
Several sailor boarding house keepers
have tried recently to get even on nvnls
by bringing information to the United
States court officers of suoh rivals having
received "blood mouey" in violation of
the Dingley act. But, says tho Orcgoni
an, the efforts were fruitles;. For some
reason not easily explained the frnmers
of the act did not get at the root of the
vil at least tho evil as it exists in Port
land becauso the act provides only for
the punishment of the man who pays
blood money. Nothing is said nbont the
shark who receives it. Of course no one
is ooinp to lodcro a comnlaint against a
ship master, eo the traffic in sailors is
reliable and relied uoon for cecuracv and
truth and to treat every man a leingj
actuated with good intentions.

a great and noted man like General
Grant is made use of for the puriKe of
bringing a quack notrnm. or pntent

rying the thing too far. General Grant
is suffering from a disease- almost uni
versally considered incurable, but wheth
er cancer can or cannot bo cured is of
course a question for discussion and in
vestigation in the proper way. But to
assort that Grant's physicians are not do
ing all that medical science can do for
him, it seeois to mo is entirely uncalled
for aad out of place. These thoughts
are called forth from reading an article
in yesterdav's Oregonian headed '"'Gen

of medical intolerance?" Solicitude for
General Grant is universal, and thou
sands would be only too glad to render
him any assistance if it were possible,

of the kind in the United Stale3.

acres and are piled in places to a depth
of ten feet. Tho amouut of shells is in

candor compels me to admit I did not
care much, wbicli. l gave a grunt oi sat
isfaction and pulled most ot the clothes
off George, who was again snoring for
all that was out. Baby had either been
in the habit of Jnvijing its papa out of
bed for a walk, or else it did not like the
at vie of snoring, for it was no sooner laid
in bed than it struck a higher note than
ever, and George and I Vere called to
look after its welfare. George took it in
his arms. I flung a blanket around him,
and feeling 1 had performed my part,
went back to -bed. I watched him for
some time as he paced the room, and
when baby'ri lungs got tired, wont to
sleep. How long 1 continued in this hap
py state I do not know, bdt I awoke verv
suddenlv, to find baby trying to gouge
my eyes" out with both it,s feet, liad it
been awako I would say it did it on pur
pose; as it was, I just placed them in tho
vicinity of George's noe and again
passed iuto the land of forget f nines.
When noxt i awoko it was daylight and
baby wan sleeping, but soon awoke, and
the next tluug in order was to dress it.
and it is a task I hope never to bo called
oa again to attempt. We dressed it
twice and even then hud soraathing left
that we could find no use for, and so left
them. Aboat eleven in the morning the
ladv and gentleman were Been coming,
and W., George and Bill took to t he
woods aad left me alone with our young
guest. The mother made a jump at it
and covered it with kisses, smiled when
she saw tho unused-articles of .dress, and
asked if babv was good. I replied that
it was a model baby. Giving it a few
