1 TIMELY HIST.
The Astoria and South Coast rail
nvnl is profitable piece of property,
aiid will continue to be still more
irotitable. By the way, ideas having
commercial value, here's an idea of
more or lees commercial value. Let a
few public-spirited citizens of Astoria
iwith an eye to individual profit) make
up this week a purse of $50,000 and
secure the collateral now lying in L
AT. Case's bank to secure the payment
to Contractor Smith of the $10,750 due
him on the road. That would go far
toward releasing the road from Win.
Brad's present hold, and would be a
good financial move, in every way.
Think over it; the more it is thought
over by those conversant with the
situation the more the idea commends
itself to favorable consideration. It
should be done, and done this week, if
at all. Such action is profitable, rea
sonable and necessary.
XAKE HOME HAPPY.
TirrniK are in Astoria many houses
sarrounded with neat gardens, in which
are fruit trees, vines and flowers, and
such places always impress a visitor
favorably. Cultivated grounds and
njnwable homes, bearing evidences of
refinement, are always the abode of
ivrsoas of education and culture.
llooks. music and pictures within
the house are as essential as shrub
ler aud llowers without, and combine
to render the home a happy one.
Tliese leauiiful ornaments and sur
roundings are incentives to virtue and
true manliness, for few criminals are
ever found whose early lives were
sjvnt in such homes. Within the
breasts or all there is a yearning for
the Itcnntiful, which is more or less de-
i loped according to our surroundings
ami associations, aud if parents and
teachers strive to cultivate tins in the
mnuls of the young, they will be im
planting f lie pnncirries of virtue and
iit'vrrity, which will surely strengthen
in aft r lire.
Let us strive to remain young in
heart and feelings, if we cannot in yea re
an I appearance, for soon, far too
so n will come to the young the cares
an I anxieties which oppress all who
have arrived at maturity. Parents
hhonld endeavor to make their homes
attractive by other means than
llowers, pictures, music or fine fur
nitwre, for there is many a home well
supplied with these, which is cold and
c l eriefcs as a barn. Kindness and
aT "Cl-ion aw more essential requisites
for happy homes than all the fine,
oosUy articles which money ean pur
chase. True happiness and homo
enjoyment is often found in a
lo cabin, whose furniture may be
meager and of the most primitive
Tlie great secret of happiness can
be expressed in two words be cheer
ful. You can make others happy by
this means, and in so doing will surely
rcJloc.1 happiness upon yourself. 33c
gin in the morning with a land word
and pleasant smile for every one you
meet, keep it up through the day, tmd
it you have been ever so busy you will
reel a souse of calm happiness at night
wliich will repay you for all the ef
forts you have made to be cheerful,
even though the day has been one of
national bustle and anxiety.
Nothing is gained by fretting and
snirling at even little annoyance
which besots you. for you only work
yoursolf into a passion and then
everything goes wrong, and you arc
miserable, as well as rendering every
one else unhappy who is so unfortu
nate as to be near you. Cultivate
ehcotnlncss. have a kind word for all,
do some good for humanity, or as the
pact beautifully expresses it:
Sae upon each fleeting luiunlc,
Make the most of life you may;
What yonr purpose soon begin it,
For time speeds so fast away.
Work, and write upon life's pngon
Something noble, brave aud true,
Which stall show to future ages
The world has bettor been for yon."
THE ItEASOX WHY.
Astorta wns selected as the place for
itoimng uic annual meeting sometime m
SonJomlor next voar. Why Astoria
jonld hnvo been selected no ono seems
to know. It is certain tho editors were
not invited, as no nowsnaper man from
Astoria wns in attendance at anv of tho
nsooiniion nwetiugs. East Portland
Tho reason why Astoria was selected
was the just recognition of the im
portance of Oregon's seaport. The
Astoria editors were invited, and
lnst urgent invitations were regret
fully declined by representatives of
The AsrroitiAV solely by reason of
urgent business requirements that cu
