sider one of the grandest things ever
presented. 1901 will mark the dawn of
a new era in the history of A merit a.

may seem but a drop in the bucket, but
that drop, we hope, will spread until the

We have great natural endowments of
forestry and minerals a soil so rich
that agriculture, horticulture, nuls and
flowers glow with but little trouble,
titni or expense. Oregonians have the
reputation of being laiy well, if they
are, it is the fault of nature. Farmers
go to sleep and their dreams are undis
turbed with thoughts of drought or
Our valleys are so fertile that grass is
gieen all the vear and the cattie do not
have to pay house rent during the
winter. The heavy evergreens make a
warm and dry shelter at night. Truck
gardens furnish supplies all the year and
as fast as one crop' is marketed another
is planted. F'lnwers bloom through the
winter in the yards. Beautiful American
Beauties and other choice roses. This
is not applicable, however, to .all parts
of the state, for we have many ranges of
mountains which divide Oregon inlu
valleys and uplands, therefore we have
a climate for each and all. It one kind
is not beneficial, a fifty or hundred miles
ride will make an entire change. Our
mountains are filled with gold, silver,
copper and other precious metals. Our
state has only just begun to let the
world know of her wealth of minerals.
We are interested in the I'an-Anieri-

force. The commission wi'l return to
our homes and herald glad tidings of the
greater-t how on earth. Our visit here
has not only been of much pleasure and

An Old-Time Adventure
By Fred Myron Colby.
ON ONE of the last dttya of May, 1754.
two boys, Charles Flanders and
William Wheeler, were scut out from
tbe block-house, at Charleatown, N. II.,
on the Connecticut, to look tor two
horses that bad at rayed into the
The missing animals were a gray
horse and a black mare, respectively.
The mare had her young colt with her.
They both belonged to William's fa
ther, and the settler had promised the
boy that If he would find the horses,
and bring them safely borne, be would
give him the colt for his labor.
The lads started oft about six
o'clock in the morning, taking- their
way down the river. William had his
father's gun; but Charley, who was
younger, had not been allow ed to take
one. (juus mid ammunition were too
scarce at the fort to be intrusted to a
boy 11 years old.
It was really dangerous to go out un
armed a great distance from the
block-house, for wildcats and wolves
were numerous in that region, and oc
casionally a bear was aeen. The boys
themselves thought little of the peril,
but it was not without misgivings that
their mothers had seen them depart.
Charley was the happy possessor of
a jack-knife, and he busied himself In
mnklngabownnd arrows as he trudged
along. The bow he fashioned from an
nsh limb, and the arrows were of oak,
headed with sharp tacks that the boy
happened to have In his pocket. The
bowstring was ot stout twine. When
completed, it waa hardly equal to an
English long-bow, nor was Charley a
Rubin Hood; but it was nevertheless
quite a dangerous weapon In his hands.
He amused himself shooting at squir
rels and birds, and was In high spirits
when he hit otie.
The only traces) of the animals they
were Diluting after that they had yet
seen were their tracks, which they
ever and anon came across In the
"opens," or Imbedded In the banks ot
the streams. '
They listened and listened for tbe
friendly clinking of the bells, but could
not hear them. Yet they felt assured
t lint they were on the right course.
They had proceeded about three
miles when William's quick ear caught
the familiar ling-nding of a bell. But
it was a great ways off, and seemed to
be growing more indistinct,
"It's in the next 'open,'" said Wil
liam. "That is Sukey's. They con't
be far oft". Good luekl Now I'll
have my colt and no trouble'."
The boys were then In the thick
forest. The lust "open" was hnlf a
mile behind them; the next might be
ns far In front of them. They hast
ened forward engerly, following the
sound of the bell that came tinkling
at intervals through the woods, .
They enme to the "open," a square
like area of nearly four acres, lying
low mid level on the banks of the
Connecticut. All at once the bella
"That Is singular. Perhape they
have gone down to the river to drink,"
remarked William, looking in that di
rection. "Oh. no, there's the horses over by
that clump of birches!" cried Charley.
"Can't you see the old gray's side?"
"That's strange, anyhow," declared
William. "The Inst time I heard tho
bell, I could swear It was on the other
side of the 'open.' "
The bell commenced tinkling again.
It most assuredly was on the opposite
side, near the stream.
"riukcy and her colt must bo over
there," said Charley, "but It's strange,
n you sny, that they Khou-ldn't be to
gether." "Well, you go that way and I will
go this. If we can entch thejii, we can
ride home. I do hope the colt ia not
lost or hurt."
William started In the direction to
ward the river, mid of course Charley
walki-il olT in a course Just opposite,
When the latter was about lialf wuy
across the clearing, he turned around
to look at Willinm. To hie surprise,
his coinpnnbin wns not to be seen.
While he was gazing In tnat direc
tion, he saw two Indians rise up
from behind a clump of alders and
look toward the river. At that, in
stant William rcapH-nred around n
bend of the stream, where he had
Ix-cn hidden from the sight of his
As soon aa William sow the (lavages,
he turned to run. One of the Indians
at this fired after the dicing boy and
shot him through the wrist.
Tin- shot whirled blm violently
round. The suvnges then seized him,
anil binding him with a deerskin
thong, enrried him to their canoe,
which wo in the river not for distant.
Meanwhile, Charley, seeing the
plight of his companion, was moving
slowly away from tin! dangerous
neighborhood. He hoped the Indians
had not wen him. Alone and without
any suitable weapon, he knew thnt he
could do no'hing toward rescuing
poor William. His plan waa to return
to the settlement as quick, y ss pos
sible, Inform hi father of the circum
stance, and have a party sturt at once
to the rescue.
In order to reach" i"7e at the ahort
et notice, he bad made up hi mind
to catch the gray horse. He could
see the animal still standing half
within the grove of poplars, and bad

It is no 'disparagement to Charley
to say that when be found himself
auddeuly face to face with the red
man his mouth opened aa wide aa did
bis eyes, that the color tied from bis
cheeks, that his heart fluttered like
a bird in a cage, and that for a mo
ment he could not atir.
"Ugh I" grunted the savage, "whHe

er," meaning be would go with him to
But Charley waa sot quite ready to
do that. Stepping back quickly, he
fitted one ot his tack-headed arrows
to the string of bia bow and dis
charged it full at tbe Indian.
The warrior sprang aside) but he
was not quick enough, tor the shaft
bad been well aimed. It passed
through bis neck, between the akin
and the flesh.
Uttering a cry of anger, ha leaped
on the boy and caught him by the
throat, lie hastily felt for his tom
ahawk, and in the heat of bia rage
would undoubtedly have ended the
poor boy's career then and there; but,
missing the handle at the first grasp,
he suddenly changed his mind, and,
lifting the boy to the back of the
gray horse, tied him securely and led
tbe animal toward the party that was
with the cano.
The two boys exchanged a sorrow
ful smile aa their eaptora brought
them together. William had been
placed In the canoe, where there were
two hogs, which the savages had
plundered from a settlement lower
down Uie river.
These hoga belonged to a man
nnmed Sargent, who lived In Walpole,
and he and several ot his neighbors
had gone out that very morning In
search of the mnrouders They had
tracked the thieves to the river, and
suspecting they might be Indians, bad
embarked in a boat and rowed up
stream, hoping to come upon them
unaware and recover their stolen
A little cove shot Into the river at
tho point where the two boya rd
been captured, and the stream thus
mode a bend around this point of
land. The Indians, their canoe and
their horsra were on one aide of the
bem), and the armed white men In
their boat were npproachlng the
other. Just before they turned tbe
bend, one of the white men heard the
snort of a horse. Surprised at this.
they rested on their oars a moment.
and then rowed on more cautiously.
.Passing around a low, wooded bank,
tbey saw a sight that made them halt
again. A canoe with three Indians in
it was pushing awny from the shorn
- They conk) soe tliat it waa heavily
laden, for It sunk deep Into the water.
Only one Indinn was psihlllng, and
the canoe very slowly advanced Into
the middle of the stream.
A fourth Indian had Just entered
the river with two horses, on the
back of one of which wns a white hoy
with his arms pinioned behind him
In the canoe, by the two dead hogs,
was a prostrate figure, which they
had no doubt was another cnptlve.
Sargent Instantly ordered his party
to Are. They did so, and two of the
Indians In the canoe fell dead or fatal
ly woiiimu-u. The Indinn who was
puddling threw ihiwn his paddle, nnd
plunged Into the river, A shot wns
fired nt lii m. which either killed or
disabled hi in, for he sank, and was
seen no more.
The Indian on horseback did not
lift his pin, but very quietly urged
his horses across the river. Two of
the settlers fired nt him, but the only
result was the iwilaahlng of his naked
shin by tho disturbed water.
"Thoso horses sre stolen, nnd tbe
red Imps mustn't get away with
them," snwl Sargent; "but don't fire
again. We may Injure the boy."
Tire settlers bent to their oars, and
In n few moments swept up alongside
of the struggling horses.
Tho savagn did not wait for thrm
to einne up. but leaped Into the wntrr.
nnd deliberately swam to the nlinn
doncd canoe, which was floating ten
or a doren rod from the New Hump
slilre shir. This be clambered Into,
ss ir.ed the paddle, and began to steer
It tow-nrd the Vermont shore.
After they had seised tbe horses,
the white men turned their attention
to this hold warrior, who seemed lie
t rinlncd to escape with the cnnoe.
Two of them, who hail reloaded, shot
nt him. but, though both expert
marksmen, they failed to harm him
The close proximity of their bullets,
however, forced him to relinquish the
Holding his rifle above his head, the
undaunted savage swam to the Ver
mont shorn, and, hunting unharmed,
disappeared in the forest.
Tho white men now rowed up to
the canoe, which was drifting aim
lessly round nnd round,
"Don't shootl I'm a whit boy!"
crieil a voice, aa they approached,
It was poor William, who, with his
limbs bound with deerskin, was just
able to sit up in the canoe
"Well, you've aaved the horses any
how; but the colt's gone, sure," he
exclaimed, ns he glanced around, and
saw that the horses were secure.
One of Sargent's men Jumped
aboard the cnnoe, and paddled It
ashore, where William and Charley
were both released from their bonds.
Then the boys mounted their horses.
I Id their rescuers adieu, and return!

Clothing for Children.
Much Is said concerning the rights of
childhood, and there ta certainly no
right to which everv child Is more luiely
entitled than that of good, sound health.
It should be one of the first considera
tions of all parents to secure for their
children such conditions as will insure
them sound bodies and perfect health,
not only because health will bring them
the greatest range of comfort, but be
cause it is tho means whereby the high
est and best possibilities of lilt) are
developed and maintained. Pioper
clothing of the body is one of the basic
factors in the promotion o! health, not
alone in adult life, but thro' all the
years from childhood up; indeed, at no
time is there greater need of care respect
ing the clothing than during the period
of growth and development. Childhood
is the lime to establish the foundation
for wholeness in after life, for in matters
pertaining lo physical as well as to
moral and mental health, the principle
holds true that ' the farther back we
begin, the mors momentum we gain."
Mothers, even some who are them
selves careful to dress in accordance
with hygienic principles, frequently
sacrifice the wolfare of their little ones
in their ardor to make Ihem charming
One of the first requirements of
healthful clothing Is that it allow un
restrained action of every organ of tbe
body. This is absolutely essential to
perlect development so long as the body
is undergoing the process of growth.
Many growing children are permanently
Injured by wearing ill-fitting garments
of ready-nude, clothing. Such clothing.
being cut in large quantities after the
same fixed models, and graded accoid-
ing to age rather than size, and is suie
lo bu a mihllt for the child either longer
or shorter than the averags lor his
yeats. Again these garments as usually
made, measure the same across both
back and chest; whereas physiologically
made clothing should be fuller over the
chest, to allow fur proper expansion of
the lungs. Asa result of wearing such
wrongly made garments the shoulders
are constantly drawn forward, restrict
ing the action of the lungs and making
correct breathing Impossible. The body
of the young child Is easily molded into
wrong positions, and unless early
remedied a permanent deformity Is the
consequence. .Mothers often unwit
tingly bring about a similar result by
compelling their children to wear
partially outgrown clothing, which re
