The $100 subaoribed by certain

given for the service ren
dered by that periodical. The
magazine is at hand. The 3Jx8 inch
wood cut is a poor piece of work, and
unless labeled no one would ever
have guessed that it was meant for
Vancouver. It represents a town of
about 500 or GOO inhabitants, and
may come in handy some day in "il
lustrating" some little town in
another locality. Bough sketohes of
the court house, school house, Mrs.
Wintler's residence and the Catholic
church are worked into the engraving
in such a way as to destroy the view
of the water front. The two short
columns of descriptive matter are de

THE V. 3L 0. A. ENTERTAINMENT.
The spacious lodgo room of Beaver
Lodge No. 05, I. O. O. F., was the
scene of a pleasant cntertaiument
last evening given by the Astoria Y.
M. C. A., or rather by several ladies
and gentlemen iu aid of and under
the auspices of that association.
The entertainment opened with an
instrumental solo by Professor Bet
tinger, followed by a chorus, "Com
rades in Arms," by several male
voices. Mis3 Carrie Fields then re
oitcd a humorous scene in a railroad
car, after which Mrs. B. Van Dusen
and Mr. Wm. Barker sang a duet
ilrs. Geo. Dorris sang a solo which
preceded a recitation, "Spartacus,"
by J. T. Boss. The next on the pro
gramme was a duet, sung by Mrs. O.
W. Fulton and Wm. Barker, which
with a vocal selection, "The Grave
Digger," by J. E. Day, closed the first
Tho second part opened with a
Drologue cleverly spoken by Miss
Edith Conn introducing the amusing
Mrs. Jarly and her comical wax
works, which provoked roara of
laughter. Several local hits and par
odies heightened the fun and it is
seldom that anything has received
so much hearty applause as the
mirth-exciting movements of the
aforesaid "waxworks" last evening.
The attendance was good and the
officers of tho association wish to
express their appreciation of the in
terest manifested in the entertain
ment and their thanks to all who
Not True to Nature.
Eastern papers are arriving with
the first installment 3 of Bret Harto's
new story. The opening scene is a
dead give away. A stage is robbed,
the road agents doing their work by
the light of a bull's eye lantern, and
Wells, Fargo's messenger is the sec
ond man they go through. Bret
Harte is evidently forgetting his
knowledge of Pacific coast customs
No stage was ever robbed in Califor
nia or Nevada where the gentlemanly
robber held a bull's eye lantern. A
bull's eye lantern only lights one spot
and from the shadow it would be too
convenient to send a bullet. The
strge robber arranges all that by get
ting in his work mostly in daylight.
Harte should recognize the custom
ary percentage in favor of the game.
Then again that express messenger
episode is thin. Wells, Fargo's mes
sengers usually carried a gun with
half the barrel sawed off, and they
either shot or were shot off hand.
No climbing down or "standing up."
When a messenger was aboard either
ho or the road agent got the drop on
the other and settled the whole busi
ness right there. Bret Harte has
ived too long iu h'old Hingland.

A LITTLE GEOGRAPHY.
Sometliinc a Little Fresher than Is Fonnd
On the Haps.
The political geography of the
world is becoming strangely altered
in these seemingly peaceful years.
Within the last lustrum there have
occurred many changes in the con
figuration of the possessions of the
great nations of the earth. Within
the short limits of a year Germany
has risen into a nation of great colo
nial importance, and her people are
no longer obliged to leave her flag
when they desire to emigrate from
the crowded fatherland. Not since
the era of the Napoleonic wars, when
the map of Europfi was reconstruct
ed every six months, have so many
alterations been going on as of re
cent years. And the changes have
been, in the main, quietly made. In
Europe itself there has been compar
atively little alteration. Austria has
expanded by the occupation of the
Turkish provinces of Bosnia, Grotia
and Herzegovina. This restores her
to about her dimensions before she
lost Venice, Lombardy and her con
trol over the Italian Duchies. But
she is not nearly recouped in popula
tion by this aggrandizement of area.
Russia has annexed the narrow strip
Bessarabia, taken from Boumelia,
which received in return the malari
al Dobrudscha. Greece ha3 grown to
something by stretching northward
into Thessaly and Epirus. Those
nations of the moment Boumania,
Servia and Montenegro have all
grown in extent by despoilation of
Turkey, which has also had tho semi
independent states of Bulgaria and
Eastern Boumelia, now temporarily
amalgamated, carved from its re
mains. The only one of the coun
tries erected out of Turkish territory
that is likely to remain, a fixture on
tho map of Europe i3 Greece. The
others will sooner or later become in
tegral parts of tho powers that creat
ed (hem. Montenegro smallest and
fittest of them all to survive and
Servia will be likely to fall to Aus
tria; Boumania and Bulgaria, with
its annex, Eastern Boumelia. to Bus
sia. Prussia has apparently ab
sorbed the Duchy of Brunswick,
from which comes the English royal
line, a stato of about 300,000 souls."
Now take your map of Africa, so
full of countries of strange extent
and illy-defined boundaries. First
remove the border lino between
Algeria and Tunis, for both have
been essentiallyFrench territory since
the French regency was established
in Tunis nearly four years ago. De
lineate a country that extends from
the twenty-fifth meridian to Abyssinia
and the Bed Sea coast and from near
the twentieth parallel well toward
the great lakes that are the sourceof
the Nile. This is the territory reigned
over by El Mahdi and his successor
and which has no definite name ex
cept that of the Soudan, which we
were taught meant the expanse of
country between tho Sahara and
Guinea. From this should be ab
stracted a narrow strip along the Bed
Sea as far as Berbera, which ac
knowledges the Egyptian, Turkish
or English domination whichever it
may be. If you can find the island
and bay of Assabin the Bd Seamark
them off as the only colonial posses
sions of Italy, which also
occupies Massowah, perhaps per
manently. Germany has acquired a
large and indefinite territory opposite
tho island of Zanzibar and what is
known as the Gameroons country on
the bight of Biafra. Extend the
British possessions at the cape more
indefinitely into the interior; mark
off an extensive territory running
back from both shores of the Congo,
except at its mouth, which is Portu
guese. Thi3 is Stanley's "free stato
of Congo" over which King Leopold,
of Belgium, reigns. Then mark off
the country of the entire upper
course of tho Niger as the doman of
that savago conqueror, who is repeat
ing the role of tho Mahdi in western
Soudan. Now noto that tho island of
Socotra off Cape Gnardafui has been
annexed by Great Britain aud that
the French have gained some terri
torial advantage in Madagascar.
The republic of Liberia has enlarged
itself by annexing the neighboring
native kingdom of Medina.
Note first that Cyprus is trans
ferred from Turkey to Great Britain.
Add to the Russian province of Geor
gia or Trans-Caucasia a section of
Turkey that will about square its
boundaries to the Black sea. Blot
out Turkestan and annex it to Russia.
Take a block out of the northwest
ern portion of Afghanistan, running
nearly to Herat, and add this to Rus
sia. Now go to Farther India.
Throw Cochin China, Cambodia,
Anam and Tonquin and label the
amalgamated countries French In
dia. Forecast the future a few weeks
and make Bnrmah an integral part
of British India. Leave Siam alone
of farther Indiau independent states.
Divide the great island of Papua,
second in the world, between Great
Britain and Germany. Noto that the
Caroline islands are permanently
Spanish, and mark most of the Pa
cific islands, which have heretofore
been considered independent, as tak
en possession of by Germany.
Blot out Patagonia. Add that por
tion east of the Andes to the Argen
tine Bepublic aud that west to Chili,
but render also unto Chili the north
ern shoro of the straits of Magellan.
Divide Terra del uego from north
to south and distribute it with Pata
gonia. Now extend the northern
boundary oE Chili to about Arica in
Peru and annex to Chili those por
tions of Peru and Bolivia south of
this point between the Andes and
Buelclou' Arnica. Salvo.

SAFE AT LAST.
What is a newspaper office without
a safe? It is nothing but a flimsy ex
cuse for a journalistic establishment.
We have just procured a safe that
took a whole ship's crew to coax it up
the stairs. The man who bossed the
job requested us to get behind and
push; so as to save the strain on the
ropes and pnlleys. We haven't much
confidence in pulleys, and we remem
ber of seeing a fellow catch hold of a
rope with his neck and break it.
When we are going to have a race
down stairs with a safe, we propose to
give the safe a few lengths the start.
If we aro to go ahead in a race with a
safe, we want the safe to be going up
hill instead of down. If a safe ever
gets theupperhand of a fellow and sits
down on him, it might not conclude
to get up when he had cried,
The stout iron safe now sits at one
end of the sanctum and looks digni
fied and grand. The agent told ns
the combination before it was brought
up. We spent the first three days m
turning the knob backwards and for
wards to the figures but she would
not let in. Finally the agent hap
pened around, and the door opened
as soon as it saw him coming.
A safe gives an office an air of re
sponsibility. When a stranger enlers
we tell him just to lay his hat on the
safe. This assists him in seeing the
safe. The agents recommended the
safe as being fire-proof. As soon as
tho weather gets cold enough-we will
build a fire in it and see if it will
stand tho racket. If it is really a fire
proof saf, we may conolude to use it
for a stove.
We had not thought, till a abort
time ago, what we should keep in the
safe. We do not wish to bulge its
sides out and strain it by stuffing'it
with our money. Somo people keep
their coal in such places. This might
be a good plan, for we can save fuel,
and keep the boys cheerful on cold
days by telling them we cannot get at
the coal, as we have forgot the com
bination. There's an idea that's worth
ten dollars. When a man comes up
with a bill, we shall say, "Certainly
just ub well pay it now as any time."
Then we will rush up to the safe, turn
tho knob quietly one way and then
the other. We shall mutter, "By jinks !
This is strange." Then we will turn
the knob frantically. When we tell
the man, with a thoroughly disap
pointed look, that we are sorry, but
we have lost the combination, tho fel
low will go out laughing and tell, as
a joke, that we couldn't get into onr
Oh, there is no doubt but that the
safe will be a handy thing. It will
always look well, and if we are pushed
in our efforts to make it useful, wo can
fill it with exchanges and keep the
paste and other perishable articles in
it. No rats will oat up paste when it
is looked in a safe.
Wo wish to caution all persons
against fooling with our safe, or they
may get their fingers pinched in the
heavy doors. Aurora Blade.
On Sunday last several of the

Robheil by Highwaymen.
Last Tuesday evening Wesley Sim
mons, a farmer residing in the Bed
hills about six miles south of Salem,
was robbed by highwaymen while on
his way home over the Parrish gap
road. He had drawn S200 in coin at
a bank in Salem and started home in 1
a hack with his mother. When near
Kendall's place two men passed them
on horseback at a gallop. About two
miles further on two men jumped out
of the brush and seized Mr. Simmon's
team by the bridles. One of the men
pointed a pistol at Simmons and or
dered him to throw up his hands,
which he did. The other highway
man then searched him and took the
3200 and a little change from his
pockets. He was then ordered to
drive on. The robbers were tracked
to Salem, where all traces of them
was lost. Oregonian, 18.
