WHITTIER, Oil., Nov. 2ft, IfflW.
After reading the extracts from C C.
Hackleman's fetter, I think the only
thing that will eure him Will be about
three weeks' rain, with few days of
Oregon fog and mud uilxed in, and
then he will begin o Ifeel natural
again, and he will take Southern Cali
fornia us it Ik.
I left Lebanon, which Is In the
"grand old state" .erf Oregon, and eame
to this place liiut April, and 1 ara very
well satisfied with Southern California.
I have not seen nich of it, tin I have
been too usy to travel around much;
but of what. I have seen I don't think
the world tj beat it.
He don't like the applet here. If he
will come to Whittier, only 15 mile
east of Log Angeles, I will show hitu as
large, and finer flavored apples than
old Webfoot can produce. And as tor
grapes, plums, prunes, pears, apricots
unci peaches, he must not mention Or
egon the same week. He seems to be
under the impression that this oountrv
is depending on winter immigration to
keep it up. If he could have seen the
amount of fruit and tomatoes that was
put up at the Whittier cannery this
season just cloaca, tie would change ins
mind In regard to this place.
Whittier is a nice place, and Is build
ing up very fust. There bus been it
good demand for laborers of all kinds,
although times are a little quiet now
except building. The lumberyard lias
sold an average of one ear of lumber
per day for the last, sixty days. The
buildings being constructed are mostly
good residences, being built, by people
that have come to stay.
I do not think I he cost of living here
is much greater than in Oregon. Some
things lire higher. I do not think fuel
for u year will cost any more here than
nt Lebanon, as we do not need much
fire only of mornings and evenings.
Mr, H. thinks one cannot live on cli
niiiie and tlowers, I won Id advise him
not to try it . I have tint had to yet. I
don't suppose thereto much show for
getting a position us a clerk in n store.
J quit trying Unit and got a job of
piling lumber for the Kan Pedro Lum
ber Co., so that I can have bread, but
ter and honey to mix with the climate,
and lake it all together it. la first-rate.
There certainly Is a great change in
the temperature of an eveuing and
night, but. ( don't see bo very great a
difference between Mils place and Ore
gon, lint a few utiles here nmkosquite
a difference; here, w are at the foot of
Puoiite Hills, and it. does not eet. as
I cold an in the vulley.
I do not advise anv one to come here
expecting to get steady employment,
as there are plenty of people here to do
all there is to do; but I have done bet
terhere than I did in Oregon. There
Is wiry little teum work to do, and not
mttch to be made renting farm laud, as
rout is high; but if a person hus a few
acres here ho certainly can make a

Elder Waybaek and Latin.
I had just returned from Lebanon,
Friday evening, when Elder Wayhaek
came over. to get ins mall. The Jfilde
was not reeling well, and 1 asked h
to have, a seat bv the fire and .
awhile. ''Well, there is another
tionist after you now, Elder," " ,
"Be there?" sez he, "and whr .", , '
got to say?" "I aint read 'i,

told hi m the meaning was hardly fit to
be ex-plained in the presence of Mrs.
Clodhopper (but honestly I didn't
kn ow). "I had an idee it was a dirty
fysandinavian lingo," sez he. "What
ails the man? Can't he talk United
States, or is he ashamed of hin coun

Latin," sez my daughter, Salrey Ann,
who's been to college and knows most
everything. "Latin?" sez I. "Yes,
Latin," sez she, "and it means hatred
of theologians, "sez she. "Means hater
of tbe'logians, does it?" sez the Elder.
"Well, I am," sez he. "What good
does theology do in the world, any
way? It hasn't ever converted anyone;
il has built up creeds, disciplines, and
churches; It has created dissensions,
discord and persecutions; but it can't
show a good deed to its naino " a h
"Let him blaze away, if he is firiu' at I
me, Ezra," sez he. "But what is ar-
gummlum ad hominyt" sez the Elder.
" 'Argumentum ad Iwminem' is, urgu- i
ment directed to men." translated
Saiiey Ann. "(,'f course my argument
hub uirecieu to men," sez he. "Does
ne tninii i am wntiir for gorillas in
Africa.'" snorted the Elder. But when
Sairey Ann translated "parvenu" lie
cuueiiieu t. i himself. "Thinks I am
like them Lebanon electric lights, does
lie, newiy nstn into notice, eh Well,
1 am a forty horse power arc light,
compared to a 'man that writes hog-
Latin," sez he. " lPeccavi' is T hnvo

sez the Elder. "I am not one of those
horse-breakin' sanctified christians,

longer. n 'Peine fort et dure,' 'strong
and severe punishment,' " read Sairey
Ann, "What for?" growled the Eider.
i haven't robbed anv widows and
orphans, nor bu'sted any banks, and if
I did vote for Penuoyer, didn't I get
two Thanksgivings just the same as
them democrats that voted for Weaver
to elect Cleveland?" '"God defends
the right.' That is French," said Sai-
rey. " Yes, lie does, and he don't need
a ack-legged lawyer to plead his cause
in dictionary Latin," snorted the
jMoer, geuing wratny again. "Sez my
article is a harmless thunderbolt, eh?"
as Sairey translated "Brutumfulmen."
"I'll give him a thunderbolt that will
knock him higher than Mt. Hood, aa
soon as my geese shed their quills. See
if I don't!" And the Elder brought his
fist down on the table in a way that
made the winders rattle, "He says
you and C'al Jewpepper are a 'noble
pair of brothers' and a 'bridge of asses,'
laughed Sairey as she read, "Par nobile
fratrum" and "Pum rmnoitim." "Sez
i am a orot ner to a Jewpepper, and a
noble bridge for asses," thundered the
Elder. "Dod-gast the blaukety, meas
ly mud-seoop! If I ever catch him
pokin' around Camas Flat, I'll fight
liiui a foot-race from here to Peterson's
Butte! Culled me a sequitur, too, eh?
Does he take me for a walking 'cyclo-
lieuy or a posi to nmg uie dictionary
at? By the great Jloiu-spoon! I'll
make Leb'non too hot to hold him, the
miserable sequeeter! He don't know
enough to pound sand in a rat-hole,
and he has to hide it by using a lingo
that a Cliinauiaii can't understand.

Just wuil 'til my geee so to roost."
I'll Jiuvi! a quill to answer him or bu'st

grubbed his hat and rushed home to
prepare lor an onslaught against
"Proxy." Tlie Elder is mad enough
for anything and the war-cloud o'er
Camas Flat hasn't even a silver lining.

Election. ' ,. ; .
The haughty mayor took unto himself a
life partner, Sunday week, and gave Ins
friends a dinner. Worthy Councilman
James Harbin followed suit last Sunday,
and now who will be next? Iloth gentle
men have our congratulations, and also
thanks for cigars. Success and a long life
of happiness attend all parties, is omr ''
Election passed off quietly, - votes be
ing polled (a few were too short to polo).
The following are the officers for the ensu
ing year: Mayor, Tie; Recorder, T. L.
Rice; Treasurer, J. H. Turpin; Marshal, T.
M. DeVine; Councilnien, Boner, Robinson,
Butler, Medley. The past has been Ml of '
trials, but the future outlook is good for !
peace and plenty. All are content anil wish . 1
the new officers success.
A. revival meeting has beraui at the n s
church. Mr. H. W. Parker is sergeant-st-arms,
and good order is assured. May the
harvest of souls be plentiful and all ooliMe.1 '
and strong secta-ianism be kept out. '
Spelling schools are in vogue. Old and
youngvietomakc things pleasant for all ' '
participants. The first attempt was near
failure owing to some of the inferior class j
trying to run it on their plan i. e., with '
paper wads for ammunition and live bosjies "
for targets. Older heads took tire starch
out of them and now the best of order nrs.
j vails, and they confine themselves to tear
ing off inoffensive pickets on iheir hornet
ward way. One case before the Itecorikr
will dampen their little proclivities in this ' -line.
There promises to be a lively little case
in the near future, as regards rent for a "
building for school purposes, lust winter.
On Penn's Thanksgiving dujltitting time .
for scenes so sad) a little sociitT "shin-dig"
was given by one of the elite of our town.
One of our young "bloods" harnessed hinv
up in his togs and Bill Nye's umbrella, and -sallied
forth to see the sights. II, niilcinua
did not respond to his soft advances and his
warm southern blood inspired him todceiis '
ol daring, such as throwing his harmless
umbrella around, and homeward he flew
on leaden wings through the mud. Tender
ness of the vital organ is one of tlie charac :
teriBtics of the Waterloo Belle, Mie hasten
ed after and brought him back hi tears. The
sequel is still niore harrowing in its recital; '
In a few nights a rival took said charmer
eight miles to a parly. Youiur HihVfrvn
called in the services of his two henchmen,
on whose upper lips the signs of manhood
uaa developed about as niach as the nan on -
a piece of cotton flannel, and borrowed all '
the "guns" in town, then hied away in pur
suit, through mud up to their knees find
almost necks (of the bottles they carried).
Nothing came of it-no fight; and thus a .!
good item was spoiled. Vloral: Don't fix
your affections on any particular one hi
life, i. e., Waterloo life, but go to the ball
and catcli as catch can, after yon have lost
your milk teeth. P. 8. to moral: Little
girls should talk to little boys and not ap.
propriate married women's property, on the
streets. It not only looks sad, but clisgus
ting, to say tlie least. We trust this hint
will be enough. If you don't want your
name in print, let up. : ,'
