A Cakfoen-ia salmon has recently

The excessive heat is causing an
alarming amount of sickness in Aus
tria. In the military camps of the
southern Army tho death rate has
risen 30 per cent Deaths from sun
stroke are daily reported. Tho ther
momotcr registers an averago of from
105 to 110 degrees Fahrenheit in the
shade at midday. In some of the
southern districts the wheat crops arc
quite burned by the sun.
EvEnr day there is impressed on
the minds of our citizens the necessity
of a greater or belter water supply.
Every night in the central portion of
the city the water supply is shut off to
prevent waste, and in CtTse of a fijjc
breaking out in a house, for want of
water to extinguish it when first
skirted, a serious conflagration might
result An abundant snpply of good
water is an indispensable requisite for
a prosperous city, and Astoria should
bo thus provided. Tho tendency of
well regulated, cities is to have the
municipality own its water supply, and
it can then be furnished to citizens at
cost If the city cannot do that, then
have a company which will furnish an
adequate system of water works.
More and more every day, as often
as any needed improvement or change
is suggested, there arises the stumb
ling block of a charter, and the fact
that a new charter must bo had for
Astoria before any great progress can
be made towards having this any
thing of a city. Hampered and fet
tered by the narrow confines fixed by
tho antedeluvian charter under which
wo now exist, no great work or de
sired improvement can bo made. One
of the most essential requisites of As
toria is a new charter, broad and
comprehensive enough to be applic
ablo for a city tho size that Astoria
will be ten or fifteen years hence.
The present charter we have long
since outgrown and a new one is
demanded by the march of improve
ment and the logic of events.
Letters aro frequently received at
this office from discouraged residents
in Nebraska, 'Dakota and elsewhere,
wanting to know what prospect there
is for them to find employment here.
The most of the letters aro from men
who have families. They have suf
fered repeated failures of their crops
and are anxious to emigrate to a coun
try where there is neither drouth nor
grasshoppers, and where the crops
never fail. "While there aro no vacan
cies waiting for someone to come along
and fill them, it is. true that thoso who
are able and willing to work are sel
dom idle. And men who will take
hold earnestly to do the rough, hard
work of developing the country can
make places for themselves that will
afford them more than a good living.
Those who find the greatest difficulty
in making a living are thoso who aro
looking for easy jobs. Light work
that docs not require much muscular
exertion is much sought after. The
ranks of those who would bo clerks
and bookkeepers arc overflowing and
to such no encouragement is offered.
A Scotch writer says that he has
sprinkled wasps and bees with rose-
colored powder, and has found that
thus handicapped they could with
ease keep up with the fastest trains.
They were not carried along by the
rush of air caused by tho train, but
-would enter and leave tho cars by the
windows, sometimes disappearing for
a minuto or more and then returning.

ROBE & PARKER, G.r
How to Behave in Society.
Do not call upon persons in reduced
circumstances wearing a great display
of wealth and ornamentation.
Possibly, on second thought, it
would be better not to call upon them
at all. They might shock you by
openly indulging themselves in hab
its of industry.
Do not make a display of consulting
your watch. Especially, if making a
fiast call on one of the nobility, do
not ostentatiously open tho rear of
your watch to show tho name of tho
factory or tho glitter of tho works,
and do not, while visiting among titled
people, and while the family are at
prayers in the morning, blow a kernel
of wheat out of your key and wind
your watch with a defening report.
There is nothing that will tempt a
God-fearing duke to come down from
the front steps of the throne of graco
and brain his visitor with a frozen
cucumber quicker than this. Let us
at all times try to bo respectful to
others, especially if there's money
If you are a hostess, and engaged
in entertaining the nobility of One
Hundred and Fifty-eighth street, do
not jump up hurriedly and run to tho
barn tho moment you hear a hen
cackle. It is rude to your visitor and
is an implied insult to tho veracity of
If you aro a gnest at the house of a
neighbor who has borrowed some of
yonr pie plates for tho occasion, do
not, in a fit of rage or despondency
over your failure to converse fluently
with the pastor, call attention to the
fact that theso are your pie plates.
It is about the detroppist thing you
could well do.
This season's epitaphs will bo
briefer than usual, and run more into
plain or Gothic extended letter. The
hand with forefinger extended upward
will not be used so much this sum
mer, as in several instances this stylo
of stone has heretofore been upended,
or turned end for end rather, by
mischievous people, thus conveying a
different impression on the public
mind from tho one intended as to the
general direction taken by deceased.
If in making your first call you do
so on a bicycle do not bring the instru
ment into tho hall with you or hold it
in your lap whilst calling. You might
drop it and break it
Do not caress your watch chain or
charms whilst making a party call.
You will be apt to wear the gold off
and expose your poverty, which is
vulgar. True politeness consists in
deftly concealing your poverty and
natural-born vulgarity so far as pos
sible. Do not pick up tho wine at tho ta
ble and carefully scrutinize tho label
as if you were a connessurr, when you
are really a common curr. You
may fool the company during two or
three courses with the idea that you
aro usod to wine at home, but before
the pie is reached you will manage, no
doubt, to advertise the fact that you
are accustomed to thick milk from a
gourd, and not much of that
Do not waste your hair oil on tho
wall paper. Hair oil costs money, and
wo cannot lubricate the futuro with
tho hair oil that is past.
