'You just read Hhis,, Cal, and you will

out of her wmppi&g brown eyes.
We ste pped inside the barn, out of the
rain, au-isatdown on a nack of bran. 1
tried to look iftl and nwHected u I though i
wu so'awwhaL agitated, Jiaviiig passed over
a road from my Iiouhc to Waterloo that
would make any otAier titan a christian
sweur worse thuu a pet parrot on a whaling
vessel, and having imm the victim ot a
pruotical joke, 1 anked my wife to read for
me u I win cold and wet, wtikh was true
I hctct Jte, not even to her. My wife com
menced readiugthe article under the cap
tion of ''Kldor Wayhack and Latin.' As
she jirocecdttd rn her rleur, soprano voice
and gradually pulling out the tremulo stop,
Bolosiak, my Waterloo trouble began to
vanish-, and when she got down to where
Clodhopper's daughter translated the first
Latin phrase, 1 said, mentally, "BteHB the
child !" because she hud explained what 1
could not understand. I could then see
that "A Salvationist" was right. Then
comes the confession of Klder Waylmck,
where the old hiiyseed confessed that he
did hate theologians, My heart almost
Maiik within me, and 1 said "Let us pray for
him 1" but my wife suggested that 1 wait
until I knew ull. Now I had formed a good
opinion of "A Salvationist," but I was not
stuck on his proxy because the proxy had
mentioned my name in connection with
thut intidelly inclined Elder Way back, but
us 1 did not understand the French and
Latin used by "Proxy," I tried to take his
remarks as a compliment, but when 1 found
that he hud put me down on a level with
that mutton-headed blabber-mouthed athe
ist, Klder Wnybaek, I got mad mad all
over and I used the worst words I ever
used in my life. I said, "He is a goi-darn-phool."
"Hushl Hush I" said Lucinda. 'Iknow,"
she continued, "tluit you are superior to
that old ignoramus Waybaok, or "Proxy"
cither, as to that, both morally, religiously
and intellectually, hut you must not use
"I beg your pardon, Cindy," said I.
"You are excuseuble," said ahe, "but"
Here she hesitated, as our minds were mov
ing together we had gone back to the good
old days when the dear old ministers, who
were really called to preach the gospel, had
predicted that a great calamity would be
sent upon us because of the wickedness in
the country. Even Uncle lialaam who
we called Prince Duke had often said,
when be was standing in his rude pulpit
shining like a ghutcd ginger cute in the sun
shine, that the country would be purged of
its wickedness. Wasn't it, though? I
should say it was, in 1K86, when Charleston
and the surrounding country experienced a
shake-up that will never be forgotten ; and
we will have like visitations here unless

' A Remarkable DIscoTory,
From Albany Herald.
Frazler Wallace, a brother fif T. L.
Wallace of this city, recently leased a
piece of hop land of the old Maxwell
farm. In the Santlam hottom, seven
miles east of Albany. The land grew
bops so well that he concluded to pur
chase a small tract In that vicinity,
and found what he thought would suit
him in an adjoining piece, but after
diligent search could And no owner.
He then began searching the records
and discovered that it was government
land, and contained 42 acres of the
richest land in theSantiam bottom. He
lost no time in going to Oregon City
and filed a homestead upon it. The
land is worib perhaps $2000.
It seems remarkable that the land
should have Iain vacant so long, es
pecially as It is between and adjoining
two of the oldest farms in Linn coun
ty, the Lewis Cox farm on the west
having been settled upon in 1819.
Mr. Wallace has built a house upon
it and considers himself lucky in ob
taining a fine little farm free of post.

A meeting of the executive commit

and February 6 was agreed upon.

by Chairman White. The Washing

a fresh lauudi ied flour sack. She held
the sack while the clerk poured in the

pened. The fruit went through the

two holes in the bottom of the sack,
both trimmed with embroidery. The
