This morning it was our pleasure
to be entertained for a few moments
by two old veterans of 1S40 Adam
Stephens and G. B, Wagnon, who
voted for Old Tippo in 1840. The
hitter gentleman is an old pioneer.
Born in 1800, he remembers many
administrations and 1ms always
been n strong democrat, but he voted
for Old Tippo because he- thought
htm the better man. His memory
is replete with interesting facts of
history, nnd though now nearly
ninety years of age has never had
occasion to require the services of 11
Settled .Nov and Happy.
A few days ago the writer, in
coining into Portland from eastern
Washington, got into conversation
with n man from Minnesota who
bad ids ticket through to San Fran
cisco. The stranger was going right
on through tho Willamette valley
without ever so much as taking a
look at it. Ho told us he wanted to
purchase about ten acres, close to a
good market, and go into the egg
and chicken business. Ho thought
Sau Francisco would be just the
place, but wo spoke to him of the
market afforded by Portland for
eggs nnd chickens that they im
ported largely from Iowa and the
east and ho decided to stop and
look around. Tho result Is told in a
few words. He was pleased beyond
description, bought ten acres and is
now building houses, coops, incu
bators, etc., and gonerally preparing
for the raising of chickons In an ex
teuslve scale. He cxjiects to have
at le.ist 3,000 pullets bofore May

Taints In Fruit Drying.
H. S. Jory of this city, who has
had extensive experience in haul
ing fruit, tells tho Pacific Express
that fruit and especially prunes and
plums in order to dry well must
be picked ripe and put into tho
dryer at once before any wilting
We had the pleasure lately of
looking through Mr. Jory's drying
establishment, aud while we were
examining the fruit ho showed us a
specimen of prune dried when rlpo
and fresh, and another of tho same
variety that had been picked before
thoroughly ripo and allowed to lie
in boxes a day or two before being
put into tho dryer, and the latter
seemed at least twenty-live per cent
There is a right and a wrong
time for everything, and this ap
peal's to be emphatically truo in tho
matter of drying fruit.
A ration For Call.
The story comes to us from Silvur
ton. It is well vouched, else tho
circumstance would not bo men
tioned. It is'sald in that fair city
there lives a pronilnentbuteccentrlc
mau who has an antipathy to cats.
lie has a loving wife and a sweet
little daughter. Tho little girl dear
ly loves a cunning kitten, but the
pleasure of owning one has always
been denied her. On several oc
casions sho had ninnaged for a few
davs to keep a little pet, but as soon
as the dear papa would hear of it lie
would dispatch the felines. One
day last weok the littlo girl had an
unusually bright and playful kitten
given her. This sho brought homo
and her mother told her sho might
keep it. Tho father oamo homo in
tho evonint; to his supper as usual,
spied the cat and was angored. The
mother explained that tho littlo girl
cried so longingly for it that sho at
last consented to lot her keep it.
This enraged the futhr, who
grasped the ttit by its hlndor parts
aud battered its brains out upon tho
mother's head. Tho man Is eccen
tric, you will admit?

John Vance Cheney has a new
volume in press that bears tho at
tractive title of "Wood-Blooms."
Tho chief features of Mr. Cheney's
verse are Its simplicity and its sug
gestiveuess, reminding ouo more of
the best work of Aldrich than of
any other American poet. That
these are marked traits of tho new
volume is shown by the following
extracts from advance sheets:
MY CASTLK IN THE A1K,
Or In the est or In the west.
Where shall I bulM my bird nest T
Or north or southward whither rom
To bulhl my little love a home?
Upyondei, In the clear sweet air
I think that I could keep her there:
Too much an nnel to? the icruuiut,
Kor heaven Miiuowhat too warm nnd
My precious bmU of fleh ami blood,

I dread the invusinjr thoughts that dwell
Upon the years to be.
They say, more kind the early blight
Than are the rlpvnliiKMin-.;
They say, to ulrKMim It to tall,
My sw eet unfolding ones.

You closer to my breaM.

From pushing .sweet, behind.

That may suggest her trace.

The belief that warts in ay be
charmed away or removed by va
rious superstitious practices has a
certaiu attraction for many people
ofii'iioii-scientlflc turn of mind, to
whom it may bo a pleasure to
know that so eminent a man as
Lord Bacon was not without a
littlo weakness in this direction.
After telling in one of Ills works
that he had a wart on one of his
lingers from early childhood, and
that when a youth iu Paris at least
a hundred grew upon his hands iu
a month's time, lie adds:
"Tho English ambassador's lady,
who was far from superstitious, told
me she would got away with my
warts; and, In order co do It, sho
rubbed them all over with the fat
side of a piece of bacon with tho
rind on and, among the ro-t, the
wart I had front my childhood
then nailed the bacon, with tho fat
toward the sun, upon a post of her
chamber window, which was to tho
south; and in live weeks time tho
warts went away, mm the wart I
had so long endured for company.
Atihorest I did not wonder, be-
caifec, as they camo In a short time,
they might go away so too; but the
vanishing of that which had re
mained so long, sticks with me."
