Charles Dickens, tbo great novelist,
averred tbat lie was always floored by
any economic proposition in which the
price of a bushel of wheat was the prin
cipal 'factor. Similarly most of us are
led astray and lost In a wilderness of
valu conjectures when it comes to mak
ing an eatlmato of the Amerlcun wheat
orop for auy year. Figures never He,
It is said, If so, the busy people who
align tbem must lie, as uo estimate
heretofore made has really come within
balling dlstanco of the truth Lonu
after the atatlstlolaus have declared
tbat the surplus Is exhausted extorta-
tlon from this oouutry goes steadily on
aud there is usuully a considerable
amount left over for export In the
Jjradstreot's eatlmato of a domeolle
wheat crop this year amountliiu to 440,
930,000 bushels baa been accepted 1j
Seerhbbai, the first European authority
oh Oefeal statistics, and is :orroborated
Vy asveeJal investigation by a western
agricultural paper. All exports of
wlMftt and flour as wheat from both
MNUtts of tbe Uultod States aud Canada,
feat week equal 2,700,000 bushels against
2,Mtf,000 btwbela the previous week and
8,i'S,00 bieU the week before, aud
j aetspartid with 3,270,000 bushels if
tbe week of 1802 and 3,660,000 In 1601.

Bkr Deofoorat, ('wby doeta't the

only an average one, to say tbe best of
It, and there bave been immense losses
frjm bad weather. In the magnificent
wheat region of Eastern Oregon and
Washington the onprecedentiy early
fall rains dlstroyed fully half of the
crop and tbe total loss will amount to
many millions of bushels. We are of
tbe opinion that wheat will rise to a
very profltableTfigure Uefore the yer Is

portion of their emptor export
will lose nothing in doing so.

Tbe Democratic congress will put
lumber on thefree list in the new tariff
bill now being -prepared. In view of
the'fact that'saw mills chn'bardlv ex
1st In-Oregon where freeradellumber
cannot come, It fs a matter of'great im
portance to'consTder 'the interest lum
bermen tbeTJnltedStates oyer nave in
a protective tariff.
If tbe duty be '.removed from lumber
it will paraljze tbe saw mill industry
along tbe lake border. In Ohio alone
there are over 2000 saw mills, aua in
jury to their business will work injury
to more than 20,000 laborers in tbat
state, thus affecting something like
100,000 persons dependent, directly and
indirectly, upon that industry.
After tbe election of 1888 there was a
general feeling ol relief among lumber
men, who knew tbat tbe result of tbe.
election assured protection. Since tbe
election of 1802 there baa been a grow
iug apprehension, because of the
triumph of the free-trade party, with
its promise to open our portB to Canada.

Another mill is- being erected about

The wheat ludustry In this valley is
quite limited owing to tbe fact that
other products, such as corn, bay, veg
etables and fruit, do equallyas well and

worth 45 cents per bushel, the demand
being entirely local, while the demand

Tlie JSnllcovery tif Porcelain.
Although porcelain was known to
both the Chinese and Japanese for
ages it waa not introduced into Eu
rope until the beginning of the eight
eenth century, when John Bottcher,
a natire of Schlaiz. in Voightland,
was the firtt to make it. This man
was apprenticed to a Berlin apothe
cary named Zorn, in whose shop he
conferred some favor upon a pro
fessed alchemist, who in return
promised to teach him the art of
transmuting the baser metals into
gold. Bottcher, after studying un
der the new master for a time, im
agined that his fortune was made'
and in 1700 ran away,
Ho was pursued, hut found protec
tion among friends, who demanded
to witness an exhibition of his pre
tended skilly and the poor fellow was
eventually compelled to acknowledge
that he had been imposed upon.
But ho persevered in his labors, and
on one occasion, Having made a mix
ture of finely organized earths for
the purpose of making strong cruci
bles, he discovered after he had tak
en the compound mass from the oven
that he had gained a kind of pottery
more beautilul than he had ever
seen. The transmutation it may
therefore be said took place not in
the motals indeed, hut in his own
person, for Bottcher was suddenly
changed from an alchemist to a pot
ter. In 170G the first porcelain was
thus manufactured in Dresden. Be
ing made of colored clay it presented
a light urownisu rea hue, but as
early as 1709 a beautiful white porce
lain was obtained, and its manufac
ture was fullv established durincr
tho following years. San Francisco
The Squan' Prudence.
One day Flying-By's wife came to
our tent and asked us to lend her a
smnlL hand mirror which we possess
ed. Wo gave it to her, and then
watched her to see what she would
do with it. About a mile and a half
or two miles away a horse race was
in progress, watched by three or
four hundred mounted Indians. The
squaw took the mirror, stood in
front of tho tent and reflected abeam
of sunlight from the glass along the
ground in line with the group of In
dians. It "was only two or three
minutes before a solitary horseman
left tho band and came tearing over
tho prairie toward us. It was Flying
By, who sprang off his horse at our
door and looked inquiringly around.
His wifo had gone back to her cook
ing and was apparently quite heed
less of his coming.
To his question whether some one
had not sent for him wo could only
reply that wo had seen his wifo play
ing holiostatwith our mirror, where
upon ho went over and spoke to her.
Iu a moment ho returned and with
a grin told us that, knowing ho had
monoy. his wifo had called him home
for fear ho might bo tempted to gam

The English royal children when
young were attended in illness by
old Dr. Brown of Windsor. Prob
ably on occouut of tho unpalatable
doses he gave them tho doctor was
not popular with the little princes
and princesses. They accordingly
took great delight in calling him
"Brown,"' to the utter ignoring of his
title and also the great indignation
of their royal mamma. The queen
took them apart on one of these oc
casions and said that tho next ono
who offended in that way should be
dispatched to bed. Dr. Brown came
soon again. The little princess royal
knew ho was coming. She also knew
that her mother had meant what sho
said. It had no deterring effect. Sho
walked into the room and promptly
"Good morning, Brown. Good
evening, Brown. I am going to bed."

A "doctor" in this city, who beau

dimples to order, on being ques
tioned by a reporter, explained that
nose Btraightening went with dimple
making, just as hair cutting went
with shaving, and the business also
included mouth ensmalling. Ho re
marked tbat anyone coming into the
world blessed with a turned up nose
or a large mouth was not in this age
of progress excusable for letting it
remain in its deformed state. He
could reduce the mouth from a
largo size to the merest rosebud or
straighten a turned up nose until it
looked severely classical. San Fran
