Tho k'pisliituiv hits potton down to
its work in good k1ihh and will nt-i'vcn

(senate) bill to prevent the niovin; of
sheep from one county to another with
out first procuring ft lieenso of not loss
th.in 5 nor more than 20 cents for each

terest of one lot of sheep a against nil-

J V J9." It will prove, however, to be
-.. .tie one that went astray. The bill to
creata Mineral county was up in the
house Tuesday, but only fur a short
time, when it yielded not a color to the
pan, could not essay to assay, and
passed over to the majority too dead to
skin. Considerable amusement was
had In the senate Tuesday afternoon
over Bancroft's bill providing for pun
ishing train wreckers, etc. Tho bill
provided that on conviction a train
wrecker could be punished by impris
onment in the penitentiary for a term
"not longer than his natural life," or
by punishment "as for murder in the
discretion of the court." McGiun ex
plained that the punishment was thus
prevented from following its victim
into the life beyond. The house bill
for dividing the fOo.OOO received from
the general government, repayment of
direct tax In war times, among the!
counties in proportion to their area,
passed the senate Tuesday afternoon.
Vasco county will get about $3,000,
which must be expended on the roads.
The Cascade county bill was read a sec
ond time Monday and referred to the
committee on counties. Monday after
noon, and the committee heard argu
ments and will receive a load of in
formation Wednesday afternoon. The
bill may le reported Thursday, but
whether the committee will make that
report with or without the fatal word
"not," is yet impossible to say. The
Dalles is well represented. Judge Ben
nett has seven cases before the supreme
court this week. Judge Story is here,
presumably looking after his political
indorsements. Hon. E. B. Dufur was
" ' " here Tuesday atteuding to business in
the supreme court, while opposition to
Cascade county has brought some oth
ers. There are eight county division
bills, minus one which is dead, and
their very number forces a combination
"devoutly not to be wished for."
Coon's bill for strengthening the horti-l
cultural committee was beaten by one
vote, but will be reconsidered and
passed. The assessment law will be
doctored by striking out the exemption
from indebtedness and mortgage tax
clauses, and will have to dagger along
with that. The bill to better provide
for the militia will probably pass. The
bill to better provide for the militia will
probably pass. The money from the
f 95,000 above alluded to is all that East-
em Oregon will get this year, for the
Italey bill is too dead to resurrect,
though Senator Smith of Sherman is
working hard for it. The new dome !
on the capital is like the mantle of
I Charity, is made out of copper, and
s outshines even the brazen counte
nances of the third house. Salem is a
. city of mngniticent distances. The
I streets are 100 feet wide, the blocks 400
' feet square, and the distance from any
place to any place else is so great that
I ' . one does not care to return after having
j once left any one spot, especially if that
; ppot is the Willamette hotel. Honest-
! ly, the latter place is simply a case of
S grand larceny, and its bills are longer,
larger and tougher than those of the
legislature. We paid thera $3 for the
privilege of sleeping on a barbed-wire
; mattress covered with a bushel of chaff
' done up in 19 yards of second-hand bed-
ticking. The bill of fare consisted of a
stylish card labeled "menu," which is
false, for if "I knew" I wouldn't have
gone there. The cold, glassy stare of
the proprietor was the primary cause of
the present cold spell; it was absolutely
glacial in its chilliness. A bill passed
I providing for the county judges send
ing opium fiends to the insane asylum.
We suggest that they be sent to the
Willamette hotel at Salem; one dose
would cure the worst case. It has none
of the home comforts of the peniten
tiary, none of the luxuries of the asy
lum, nothing but fleshless brick and
pulseless mortar, run, managed and
manipulated on the cold-storage plan
by a bloodless landlord. May the Lord
have mercy upon it and take it to a
better sphere is the prayer of

The Fruit Pest Bill.
In the legislature, Monday, T. It.
Coon's bill appropriating $0,000 to the
fctate board of horticulture and enlarg
ing its powers in the way of destroying
diseased trees and shrubs, brought out
some t.crimonions remarks. Upton, of
course, wanted his own bill to pass.
Coon's, he said, would cause three
fourths of the orchards in the state to
tural fellows." He moved to indefi
nitely postpone, but the motion was
lost, lieer, the taller, then took the
rlrst we still have with us, and I hope
always shall have, but the rod apples,
or at'least, sound apples, are no longer
with us. The Unt thing for our or
chards today Mould be for 00 per cent
of them to be grubbed up. California
has made her fruit the wonder of the
world by appropriating liberally for de
stroying fruit pests. The dill'crenee be
tween them and us is that when we find
anything good, if it costs a dollar and
six' bits, we vote it down."
McKwan briefly opposed the bill, as
he preferred Upton's. Ho the bill went
to vote. Tne roll-call showed 30 ayes
and 2J(?) noes, thus defeating the meas
ure by 1 vote.
Some Hard Winters.
The extraordinary cold now being
experienced nearly all over the north
temperate zone has caused the St. Louis
Republic's "Curious Man" to spend
considerable time looking up data con
cerning the stalwart winters of olden
times. Here are the results of this re
sereh: In February, "04, the weather
was unusallv severe all over Europe;
at Constantinople the "two seas" were
entirely frozen over for a period of 20
days. In 1003 the Thames was solidly
frozen for 14 weeks. The winter of
1407-8 was so intensely cold in Britain
and Germany that all small birds per
ished. In 1064 the cold was so intense
that ice formed 71 inches thick on the
River Thames in the heart of London.
In 1700-10 was the winter known by
distinction as "The Cold Winter."
All the lakes and rivers of Europe froze
solid to the bottom. In Poland and all
of North Germany the earth was frozen
nine feet deep. The Adriatic, the Bal
tic and the Black seas were all frozen
over. Even nt Genoa, in "Sunny It
aly," the Mediterranean was frozen for
nine miles out at sea. In 1710 the
Straits of Copenhagen were frozen over
so that people traveled across on the
ice in perfect safety. The winter of
174041 was scarcely less severe than
that of 1709-10. Snow laid 10 feet deep
in bpain and Portugal lor seven weeks.
The Zuyder Zee was frozen over, and
thousands crossed it on the lee just for
the mere novelty of such an experience,
in liii snow laid teet deep on a
level throughout Southern Russia. In
1771 the Elbe froze to the bottom, and
Ice formed 5 feet thick on the Danube
In America the record has lieen al
most equally as startling. In 1730 and
again ' in 1821 New York harbor was
frozen over so solidly that teams were
driven in safety over to htaten island on
the ice. Indiana, Ohio and Illinois
weather of 1855 was so severely cold
that the indicating fltid in all mer
curial thermometers congealed in the
bulbs of the instruments. On the 13th

sons were frozen to deatli in the United
States. Even as far south as Mobile
people who hardly knew what frost
meant saw the mercury sink to zero.

Care of Flowers.
Heat and moisture are the principal
requirements for the growth of plants.
When growth is rapid, the demand for
moisture will be plainly apparent by
the condition of the leaves, and the
plant will also show plainly, by its sub
stance and strength whether all other
conditions of growth are favorable for
its development. A surplus of solid
food is not so much to be feared, as a
plant can only take up what it actually
requires. Not so with heat and moist
tu je; these can be given in snch a degree
Light is another important element
of plant growth, and its healthy devel
opment is largely dependent upon it.
Where it is not proportionate with
other conditions, sickly ,long-drawn-out
pianis win ue me result. Evergreen
plants, that require a season of rest in
winter should be chosen for shady posi
tions, (iuard against excesses, as
plants suffer from them as much as,

ing and shipping more Organs and 1
Pianos than ever. In 1870 Mr. Beatty
left home a penniless plow boy, and by
his indomitable Will he has worked his
way up so as to sell so far nearly 10(l,(KM)
of Beatty's Organs and Pianos since
1870. Nothing seems to dishearten
him: obstacles laid in his way, that
would have wrecked any ordinary man
forever, he turns to an advertisement
and comes outof it brighter than ever.
His instruments, as is well known, are
very popular and are to be found in all
part8of the world. We are informed
that during the next ten years ho in
tends to sell 200,000 more of his make;
that means a business of $20,000,000, if
we average them at $100 each. It is
already the largest business of the kind
