not on speaking terms.
The admiral preferred charge.1;
sometime ago, against the captain, for
diseha rging a cook ithont permission,
and the captain retorted by filing
counter charges, based on the failnre
of the admiral to furnish him with
copies of the specifications. It is
hinted around the department that
captain Heed is a victim of persecu

The general impression is that the
return of the Ridnnoml will be the

Tho City Girl at the Seaside.
The ciry girl goes to the seaside for
lecreatiou, and incidentally to xopo in
a wealthy husband. She generally
succeeds in securing a young man
who is reputed to bo worth a mint
of money, but who in reality is a
little clerk on his week's vacation,
and who is also on tho lookout for a
wealthy partner. It is needless lo re
mark that "Iheir surprise on finding
out that they have both been deceived
is very great, and is somewhat similar
lo that of the tramp who took a drink
from a demijohn nuder the impression
that it was whisky, only to find, after
it is too late, that it w:ia only water.
The drear months of winter arj
occupied by tho city girl in preparing
stunning co3tumea for the seaside, in
order, as she tells her dear, scheming
mamma, to "hit 'em hard." Her bath
ing costume suggests to the sensible
onlooker that she should be hit hard
with a shiuglo and put to bed- It is
as brief as tho reply of a man who is
asked to subscribe for the erection of
a new church.
It is indeed an amusing sight to see
the city girl nt the seaside, attired in
her best, using all her artificial coy
ness in a mighty effort to make an im
pression on a jonug millionaire, who,
m tho city, during business hours, puts
lather in your month and shouts
NcxtF' in a corner barber-suon.
o More Free AdcrtLsin:;.
The Democrat, tho representative
journal of Baker county, and which

for itself among its contemporaries by
persistent labor for many ears past,
does not propose to give the infant

its first "moon," and which has
a reputation to get, any
I more free advertising. Tho Hem ocra t
is perfectly willing to discuss ques
tions of public interest, and, unlike
the JSlade, has a higher mission to
perform than to fill its columns with
rot in running down its contempor
aries. Now, Mr. Cronemiller, if you
expect any mention in the Democrat
