AxoTunR candidate for notoriety is
Davis Dalton, an Englishman, ho
proposes to sivini a distance of twenty
miles for a purse of fifty pounds ster
ling. It is a long distance to swim
for the sum of $250, but people can be
found who will undertake almost any
foolhardly feat for money or notoriety.
Seattle was visited by another fire
yesterday. The blaze was a fierce
one and bafllcd the efforts of the fire
men, but fortunately it was in a locality
remote from the city and the town es
caped a repetition of the great blaze
or a year ago. Seattle may not be fire
fated like Clara Morris, but all the
same the fire bell rings there with
IxsAxrrr fcometinies causes its vic
tims to commit such horrid acts as to
almost cnrdle one's blood. This is
exemplified in the telegrams on the
first page where an account is given
from Minneapolis of a fearful tragedy j
committed by an insane man, who ,
killed lus wife and five children with
an axe, and then commenced to cat the
arm of one of the dead children.
Tiie secretary of war is to appoint
at once a board of army oilicers whose
duty it will be to select a site for an
ordnance foundry on the Pacific
const, where cannon for forts and
vessels will be manufactured. How
would Astoria suit the board? Its
location is mort excellent, and its har
Imt facilities cannot be excelled.
The board is respectfully invited to
consider the advantages Astoria can
Tun AsroniAX acknowledges re
ceipt of a a complimentary season
ticket to the North Pacific Industrial
Exposition to Ik? held in Portland,
from .SepJe.nl)er 25th to October 25th,
and wiH endeavor to le represented
on the occasion. According to the
larpe nnmlicr of entries and the de
mands Tor space, it is safe to prediet
that the fair will be an immense sne
cS and in every way superior To the
.splendid one held last year. These
tfnthoringK are of incalculable benefit
to this entire coast.
Tna action of the commander of a
French man-of-war in shelling a na
tive village in the New Hebrides is
Icn to severe criticism. It is true
tli.it the natives murdered a portion
of the crew or a German ship, who
went ashore to coerce the natives into
goiug to Sydney to take the places
or striking dock laborers, and the dis
union intimates Hint, llio nnrn?. ,,
saved to take the islanders by force.
rue proper course for the French of
ficer to pursue, it appears, would have
brcutobave investigated the matter
ami punish the murderers, and just
!tow he can justify the wholesale
slaughter that his guns caused is not
Possunvr there is a point to be con
sidered which has been overlooked by
many, who urge litigation in order to
prevent William Hcid from acquiring
the virtual possession of the Astoria
and South Coast railroad as a whole.
It may be that lteid trill succeed in
disposing of the bonds, and if he does.
the railroad will undoubtedly be corn
iced, and Astoria will have through
railroad connection. The point alluded
to is this: just as soon as any legalsteps
are taken, just so surely are
the entire wheels blocked and
the bonds cannot possibly be
disposed or, and consequently
the railroad will not be built for two
or three years, as Iteid would surely
contest any claim attempted to be
enforced by a civil action brought
against him. The city wants the rail
road, it needs and must have railroad
connection if it ever expects to occupy
any prominent position as a seaport
for which it is by naturalsurrouudinirs
so eminently qualified. It might
therefore be better that cool judgment
bo exercised, and that an amicable
adjustment be effected with Pveid, that
no lwr may be interposed towards
disposing of the bonds. The railroad
must be constructed, no matter who

Pccm more important to him than Ids
first getting into trousers. It is to be
donbtod, indeed, if he is likely to find
much of his after life that will give a
joy so keen and unmixed; and when
Master .Tamie. having reached the ma
ture age of "most five," as ho puts it,
vas given his first pair of knicker
bockers, the whole family were nat
urally called upon to rejoice with him.
It was arter Ins first transports of joy
were over, and he was able to speak
oT the great event with calmness, that
Jamie canio to his mother, and after
tarading up and down before her two
or three limes, said, in a tone of per
0 mamma, pants make me feel so
hke somebody! Don't I look real
grown rrp, mamma?'
His mother smilingly told him that ho
certainly did, and that she could not
ivl that he was her baby any more.
Didn't it make you feel grown up,
mamma," Jamie began, "when
He slopped short. It had evidently
come to his mind that his mother had
never known this deep delight which
so filled his sonl. He looked at her a
moment, an expression of the deepest
pity coming over his face, and then he
took her hand in both of his and laid
it Agrainst his cheek.
JPoor mammaP ho said softlv,
Poor mamma! If vou'd been my

jit the same as if you'd been a boy."

WHAT WOMEN LIKE.
They like men who believe in wo
men. They like their opinions to be
thought of some value.
They like a man who can be strong
as a lion when trouble comes, and yet,
if one is" nervous and tired, can button
up a shoe and do it with an amount
of consideration that is a mental and
They liko a man who can take hold
of the baby, convince it of his power
and get it to sleep after they have
been worrying with it, and walking
with it uutil their eyes are tired and
they feel as if they had no brains.
They like a man who is interested
in their new dresses, who can give an
opinion on a fit, and who is properly
indignant at any article written
The- like a man who knows their
innocent weaknesses and caters to
them; who will bring them a box of
candy, the last new magazine, or the
latest puzzle sold on the street, that
will do more than its duty in enter
taining everybody for the whole even
ing. They like a man who is the master
of the situation that is, who has
brains enough to help a woman to
decide what is the best thing to do
under the circumstances, and who has
wit enough to realize, when one of the
fairer sex is slightly stubborn, that
persuasion is more powerful than all
the arguments in the world.
They like a man who likes them
don't scorn their opinions, who be
lieves in their good t;iste, who has
confidence in their truth, and who,
bast or all, knows that the love prom
ised, is given him.
Thai's the sort of a man a woman
likes, nnd her ver sigh of satisfaction,
as his virtues are mentioned, is a little
prayer that says: 4God bless him."
