People who wonder where house flies come from may bo interested in knowing that they are to bo met with on the plains 200 miles from any house, and that they buzz around the highest peaks of the Andes as else where. They havo been-known since the days of Adam and Eve and they propose to stick right by and see the show out About a thousand people gathered on Chenamus street yesterday after noon to see a man perform on a tight rope stretched from Fl a vol's building to Hawes building. Ho walked the rope with ease, carried his "brother," stood on his head, and worked the crowd for coin at inter vals. He did all ho promised to do and gave a good entertainment. A brand new invention for gather ing the nickels is on exhibition in Bos ton. Ton drop a 5-cent piece into the slot and the machine bets S500 that you will live twenty-fours longer. and a smaller sum that yon will not be injured by accident during that time. In other words, the machine presents yon with an accident policy of S500 good for twenty-four hours. It ought to prove a boon for base-ball umpires. This afternoon Miss Kate A. Gibbs of Portland, will open her studio in this city in the parlors of the M. E. church. She will have on exhibition a large number of oil paintings, in landscape and flowers; also decor ative work.

While the crowd was waiting yes terday afternoon to see "the world re nowned Davison brothers" perform upon the slack wiah, tight rope, some one on the north side or. tue street raised a yell, and in a minute 653 men and boys had boltedin the gate and the word .went round that two boys had fallen from tha roof and were drowned. After a good deal of regret had been expressed, it was found that the rumpus was occasioned by a dog which bad caught sight of n rat and nabbed it, to tho great delight of the small boy.

A statement has been prepared by me commissioner or the general land office which shows tho compensation earned nt ench of the different land offices throughout the country, by theregisters and receivers therefor dnrinc tho fiscal vear ending June 30, 1837. By this statement it is shown that tho total compensation paid to land registers and receivers in Oregon aggregate 329,480.10. At the following offices. La Grande, Las Crnccs, Oregon City and The Dalles, compensation was in eaclrcase 56,000. At Roseburg it was S5,8SG.10. At four offices iii Washington territory, namely. North Yakima, Olympia, Spokane Falls and Walla Walla, the compensation was jnst 86,000 in each case, and at Vancouver it was $5,037.3G, aggregating in the whole territory 827,037.30. Few people are aware, says an ex change, that the proud boast that the sun never sets on the British empire is equally applicable to the United States. Iustead of being the western limit of the Union, San Francisco is only about midway between the farthest Aleutian Isle, acquired by onr purchase of Alaska, and East port, Me. Our territory extend through 197 of longitude, or 17" more than half way round the globe. When the sun is giving its final gleam to our westormost isle, on the confines of Behring's sea. it is already flooding tho fields and forests of Maine with its morning light, and in the eastern part of the state is more than an hour hish. At tho very mo ment when the Aleutian fisherman, warned by tho approaching shades of night, is pulling his canoe towards the shore, the wood-chopper of Maine isbeginning to make tho forest echo with tho sound of his ax. Somo ingenious persons havo given a meaning to the location of postnge stamp3 on a letter. For example, they say that when a stimn i3 invert ed on the right-hand upper corner it means that the person written to is to write no more. If the stamp be placed on the left-hand upper-corner and inverted, then the writer declares his affection for the receiver of the letter. When the stamp is in tho center of tho top it signifies an affirm ative answer to a question, or the question, as the case may be; and when it is at the bottom, or opposite this, it is a negative. Should the stamp be on tho right-hand corner, at a right angle, it asks the question it the receiver of the letter loves the sender, while in the left-hand corner it means that tho writer hates the other. There i3 a shade of difference between desiring one's acquaintance and friendship, for example: the stamp at tho upper corner on the right expresses the former, and on the lower left-hand corner means the lat. ter. TJje learned in this language re quest their correspondents to accept their love by placing tho stamp on a line with the Burname, and the res ponse is made, if the party addressed be engaged, by placing the stamp in the Bame place, but reversing it. Tho writer may wishto say farewell to his sweetheart, or vico versa, and does so by placing tho stamp straight up and down in the left-hand corner. And so on to the end of tho chapter. The Hicks-Sawyer Hinstivls. This troupe gave a good perfor mance at Ross' opera house last even ing: good all throucb. every act and feature being well done.

There were about sixty five gathered at the school house, and as our entertainments aro scarce, out here and the Fourth of July only comes onco a year, every one went with the intention of enjoying them selves and trying to have fun enough to last through hay harvest, and I think they succeeded. About eleven o'clock tho school children, uuder tho teacher. Miss Sophia Gronnell, formed outside and marched into tho school honse, where their songs, declamations and dialogues wore well rendered. Somo of the others read essays. Tho Dec laration of Independence was read, a few remarks were made by W. A. Wherry (some of tho babies cried with a good share of patriotism while the declaration was being read). We all went out to a grove where a tablo had been prepared, and it seemed that the ladies were vieing with each other to see who could fur nish the most victuals and who made the best pies and cake, and who would succeed in getting their supply di minished first. You may bet some of us done good service wheu it come to that; aud if every one did not get enough to eat it was because thoy wero afraid of a shower of rain. After dinner wo nil amused our selves with swinging and croquet and other games, and driuking lemonado. We did not have anything stronger visible. After a pleasant dancing party and somo fireworks in tho even ing, wo all went homo wishing tho Fourth come oftener. Election Wagers. Bolting has begun. It is never too early or too Into to wager on politics. It will bo seven months before tho electqral fouut by congress next Feb ruary wL"")h will finally decide the re sult of the pending presidential con test. But for all that a great deal of money has been put up to bo idle during that period. Of course thee is no argument in a wager, but there is excitement in it. It is a good way to express one's confidence and there is the chance for 'gain, hence a resort to it In every conceivable form, from chnrch fair to horso race and from strawberry festival to pooling booth. However, I hear that repre sentative Woodburn of Nevada is on tho rampage and offers to bet a thous and dollars on each state that Cali fornia, Nevada and Oregon will go Republican next November. I nlso hear that senator Bowen has an opin ion that he is ready to back up with 810.000, 1 understand he will select ten northern states including Connecticut. New Jersey and New York, and place a thousand dollars on each one of them with an ndditional'one thous and on tho general result. As a matter of course ho is a Harrison man and on the other haad Dockcry is ready to make large sums of money talk for tho Democracy, and so it goes. 11 asJtington Special. . At Uoss Opera Ilonse To-night. The nicks-Sawyer Colored Min strels made a very attractive display ou tho streets yesterday and from the pleased expression of those who witnessed tho performance, thoy must havo made a good display there also. They give a very nice entertainment, thoir singing being specially good, while their dancing, fancy military drills and funny business are equal to anything of the kind ever seen here. For somo reason there seems to be a special charm about their work which is not possessed by white minstrels. Already there is a large advance sale for the week. Last night tho honso was packed. Pitts burg Diipalch, Sept. 13. An Explanation.. What is this "nervous trouble" with which so many seem now to be af flicted? If you will remember a few years ago the word Malaria was com paratively unknown, to-day it is as common as any word in the English language, yot this word covers only the meaning of another word used by our forefathers in timos past. So it is with nervous diseases, as tltev and Malaria aro intended to cover what our grandfathers called Billiousuesa, and all are caused by tronbles that arise from a diseased condition of the Liver which in performing its func tions finding it canuot dispose of the b'.Ie through the ordinary channel is compelled to pass it off through tho system, causing nervous troubles, Malaria, Billions Fever, etc. Yon who nre suffering can well appreciate a cure.
