papers take the position that the j
Cascade locks and toe ship railway
or canal around The Dalles should
be built by the state of Oregon."
They seem to have an idea, that
the scope of country to bebenefited
by opening the Columbia is about
the size of Rhode Island and com
prises a country or two of Oregon.
The area opened up by this im
provement is larger than the whole
New England states, and over
half of this is Uncle Sam's land.
As for the Columbia, the rivers of
all New England run into one and
then turned into the Columbia
would not make four inches differ
ence in the depth of the stream.
"With equal justice they should de
mand that the state of Mississippi
keep the mouth of that river open,
or that San Francisco open the
Sacramento. The trouble with
the good citizens "down east" is
that they want the world, they ask
$100,000 to dredge Passamaquady
creek, and $40,000 for improving
the navigable rivers of Rhode Isl
and. They want raw material
admitted free of duty so they
will have to pay less to the
west for it j and they want
the duty kept on manufactured
goods so the west will have to pay
them more for them. They want
all the appropriations kept east of
the Alleghanies, (and they kept
them there until the Mississippi
valley out numbered them) and
they want all the balanoe of the
country to put up the money.
We heard of a Rhode Islander
once whose wife asked him to buy
her a darning needle. He went
out to the barn and hunted up an
eKS and took it down to the store.
There ho said to the merchant,
"Will you give me a darning
needle for an eggVJ "Yes," said
the merchant handing it to him.
Well, said he! "That's trade;
can't you treat?" "Yes," said the
merchant, "what will you have."
"Well, a glass of sherry will do."
This was drawn and he was about
to drink when his eye fell on the
egg which the merchant still held
in his hand, and he paused and
"Say, can't you give a fellow
an egg in it?" The egg was brok
en in the glass and happened to
be a double yelk; It was downed,
however, and as they started to
ward the front of the store this no
ble representative of little Rhody
whined out, -"say, that was a double
egg; 3'ou owe me another darning
needle." It is exactly the way
the N. E. of the N. E. of this
great country gives it to the bal
ance of it, and the worst of it is, it
gets away with the whole busi
ness. . Bavaria has bad luck with her
kings. The late king Ludwig be
came insane and committed sui
cide, and his successor, king Otto,
is so dangerously demented that
four physicians take turn in con
stantly guarding him. His favor
ite amusement is shooting peasant
boys! To humor this hobby he is
kept supplied with rifles loaded
with powder only, rresently a
boy crosses the road, the king
shoots, the boy drops, and is car
ried away by escited individuals
who have "accidentally" witnessed
the scene. Seedless to say the
boy is unhurt, and gets five cents
for his trouble.
Heroes and Heroine.
There are a few "who endure bodl y
troubles without complaint, Did you ever
meet among the heroes or heroines of jour
acquaintance If any such there have been
one with a ellowish cast of countenance
and that jaundiced aspect generally, which
the most unpractised eye recognizes as the

Cambridge, 111., June 30. The
country is burning up under a
blazing sun. No such drouth as
now prevails has existed in this
section of the country for many
years. The roads are ankle-deep
with dust, the pastures are brown,
the leaves, on forest and shade
trees shriveled up, and each hot
breath of air from the cloudless
horizon drives them away in
showers. Creeks have run dry
and the water in the larger streams
is at a lower stage than was ever
known before. Many wells have
been pumped dry, and in cases
water for family use has to be car
ried one or two miles. There has
not been a soaking rain in this
part of the country since March.
Two showers in April and one
each in May and June had but a
temporary effect on crops. Unless
a heavy rain comes speedily all
kinds of grain will lie well nigh
destroyed. Stunted yellow spears
bending disconsolately over im
mense beds of dust are the only
evidence that the farmers sowed
any corn this year. The leaves
of the fruit trees are falling off,
and the fruit which promised to bo
plenty is wrinkled and dried to
the stem. Raspberries look as
though they were producing a crop
of shot, s o infinitesimal and hard
are the berries.
The drought has become so ter
rible that public prayers are being
offered for rain. The fences along
the country roads and the dead
walls of villages are plastered with
huge yellow and red bills calling
for special service at the district
school houses and churches. The
following poster attracts particular
