OUR DAILY RHYME.
Oh, Baby Ruth, sweet Baby Ruth,
We weep at your undoing;
Your little nose la out of Joint, ,
Your little slster'o cooing.
And papa, wedged In cares of state,
Must all his feelings smother;
He grumbles at this chance of fate
That robbed you of a brother.
He wants a boy, and that'B the truth,
You both- feel mod, sweet Baby Ruth.

various churches In this city asking
the water commission to allow them a
fair rate for water and not to charge
prices that are exhorbltant and unjust.
Every church in the city has one wa
ter faucet which Is mulcted at $1.50 per
month. The water Is used for a few
minutes every day In every week, and
the charge, certainly, seems preposter
ous and out of all reason.

Captain P. It. (Mm of the steamer
Harrison reported yesterday that on
the 6th Inst., 10 miles south of the Sl
nslaw river and 8 miles off shore, he
fell In with the schooner Mary Bldwell
with her union reversed and olher sig
nals of distress flying. He stood "along
side her and her mate came oft to him
in a boat. It was quickly ascertained
that the schooner with a crew of six
men, was 37 days out from San Fran
cisco, and that all on board were in a
slate of starvation. They had lost their
bearings and had been beating about
In the fog oft the mouth of the Sluslaw
for ten days. Captain Crlm had forty
passengers aboard and was himself un
certain of making port on account of
tho fog, but did not hesitate a moment
about giving to the starving vessel ev
ery atom of food he could possibly
spare. Twenty pounds of pork, a sock
of flour, sugar, potatoes, tea, biscuits,
and thirty gallons of water were trans
ferred to the schooner, and she" was di
rected to a position near the beach
from, which, when tho fog lifted, she
could be seen by the tugs. The poor
fellows were very grateful for the as
sistance rendered them, and wanted to
-give an order on the owners of the
schooner for the value, of the food, but
Captain Crim refused to accept any
thing of the kind, and told them he
only wished he could have done more.
