A GOOD FISH STOUT.
Ole Bukitouski lives in Wahkiakum
county and as a rulo ho has been in the
habit of devoting tbrco months of his
time every season in fishing, and the re
mainder in improving his place. During
an interval that he was at home several
years ago, he caught a young salmon, and
af tor keeping it captivo for several days
liberated it. It hung around tho place
for some lime, being fed by Olo quito
regularly, until it finally disappeared.
Time run along, until about three weeks
ago, when the hardy Russian had again
resumed hid piecarious undertaking in
quest of the festive salmon. One dark
and stormy night, with the wind piping
from the sou'west and a strong ebb tide
flowing, Ole and his partner were endeav
oring to take up their net ere they would
be carried down too far and swept onto
the bar. "We'll have to cut loose,' cried
Ole, but before the sentence had fairly
left his lips a monster sea rose, like a
convulsion of nature, with the boat and
its occupants on its crest, and then with
a crash and a deafenig roar louder than
ten thousand canon, tho frail craft was
carried down, down into an abyss liko a
secthing.boiling caldronwith flying spray
and froth in a blinding fury hurled. Our
friend with the Cossack extraction had,
with tho tenacious instinct of a cat,
clung to an oar. which barely kept him
from sinking, and more dead than alivo,
with vivid thoughts of that celestial
shore brightly illuminating his mind, as
ho was fast slipping away, when all at
oneo he felt fomething rub up against
him. With some supernatural instinct
he made an effort to arouse himself, and
to hia utter astonishment? ho beheld a
large salmon of extraordinary fiizorub
biug up to him. Ho loosened his grip on
the oar and throw both arms around the
salmon, who no sooner felt tho burden
than it flew through the water at a ter
rific speed, and in less than it requires to
relatoitpoor Bakitouski was landed in
Baker's bay upon terra firma once more.
Br a peculiar twinkle in the noble
salmon's ee he recognized it was tho
samo one ho had caught when quito
3oung, and as a mean of rewarding the
poor lone n,uerranu ior nis uumiine act
tho salmon had saved his lifoatan op

The Portland Chinese are going to test
tho law in this state against gambling.
In 1883 Judge Deady decided "that tho
crimo of gaming boing definod and its
punishment prescribed by the Jaw of the
state, the city has no authority to sup
press any game not prohibited by such
law nor "to punish any person playing
thereat, but is confined to tho use of such
means as may bo within its power to en
force the stato law within its limits,'
which decision forms tho basis of tho ar
gument in the test case.

" Did you ever observe," said Colonel
Gilhooly, "how difficult it is to get a
straightforward answer, a plain yes or
no from people generally?"
'No, I don't think I ever did."
"Well, sir." continued Gilhooly, "I
will bet two schooners of beer that wo
can go into a dozen stores on tho avenuo
ana ask if they havo got certain things,
and if they havo not got them tho store
keeper will not say so plain out in ono
single instance. Suppose wo try it?"
Tho suggestion was adopted. They
strolled into a fruit store and Gilhooly

Two canneries that ran last year War

and two that were idle last year Seaside

canneries running amounts to nothing.
They aro all going and packing a fair
aggregate. A general average of ono of

The clanger to the public health from the indis
criminate use of the many lime and alum baking
powders of commerce has been so fully exposed that
everybody desires to avoid their further use. .
The proprietors of some of the worst of these pow
ders are now going from house to house, trying by
means of a trick, or so-called test, with heat and water,
to show that their article is as good as the Royal
Baking Powder, which everybody knows is absolutely
pure and wholesome, the object, of course, being to
supply their own goods in place of the favorite Royal,
which housekeepers have for so many years relied upon
to produce light, wholesome, and palatable food.
The housekeeper will do -?7ell to be on her guard
against these baking powder tramps. Every intelligent"
person knows that an- goods peddled from house to
house in this manner, or that are given away in sam
ples, or sought to be introduced by secretly traducing
tbe character of other goods well known to be pure and
reliable, have no merits of their own, and have failed
to find purchasers through legitimate means.
As a matter of fact, one of these tramps is trying to
introduce a powder that has been found by the Govern
ment chemist to be L1.85 per cent lime, and the other
peddles a powder that is 20 per cent alum one a pow
erful caustic, the other a corrosive poison.
No such tricks or jugglery can deceive any one.
The crucial test that the Royal Baking Powder has
undergone during the last quarter of a century the
test of actual and successful work in the preparation
of pure and, wholesome food, under which it has never
3ret failed is entirely satisfactory to the practical
housekeeper. She has always had "good luck" with
it in making light, sweet, and delicious bread, biscuit
jind caki-, and has placed it, to stay, at the head of
her housokcopinu; favorite;. The- Royal Baking Pow
der has the reputation eveiywheiv of being the best
and the only pure baking powder made, and the
baking powder tramp who attempts to supplant its
place in the confidence of the housekeeper will find
this a bad 3rear for his business.
