LITTLE THINGS. THE NORTH-WEST COAST.
Dear Editor: It hns Ik tn sometime since we
spoke throngli I he columns ol the Tcltgrnph,
but thinkinit pirlinps a kllir Ifom the fur
North-West Const milit lulerest some of V
mmy renders, we venture to wield 'lbe prn
that mighty Instrument of little men," and en
tertain you with a description of Pugcl H U id
iH'ginning w iih OlympiH, wiih lis 1, SOU in
hnbilHiilB, iH-in capital of, and the lurgcsl
town in I he Territory. It is situated ol the
head ol' Hie Hound, 130 miles from the S.mils
San Juan de Fuca, and 220 miles irom the
ocean, by water. But the Sound is so deep
and wide that llielirisi vessels can Sail up
to Ihii OlyiupU wiiarf. Tiiey have not built
any expensive public buildimts yet, as there is
some sprctilniion, nnd a good deal of doubt,
as to Olympia being the permuneut capilal.
It is quite an old town, mid owing to Unit
fact, has many bcauliliil soft maple shade trees
adorning iu streets. .
Passing down the Sound twenty miles, is
Stellacooiu, whicii has a poor harbor and no
persounl uttriictions further than that it is the
oounly seat, and hence boasts of a J ill.
A foss the bay, oppoMte, on a large Island, the
territorial penilemiury U to be built, or is
building, wiih stone, and is to be large enough
to answer all demands, when Wastiiugtoii be
cum.! a Slate,, vutli uiauy thousniul inlialii
lanls, as you know ii is only n Territory iio,
of fitly thousand people, not including Hie In
dians and Chinese. FHi-vu miles Itirtiier
north, but down tin Sound, r-m m'.ier, is Com
meneemeul U.iy, on the south snore of wliie i,
at the mouth ol fuy.dlop riyi r, is Ihe "m:a it'',
city ol T.icoina, wheie we ar. n. iv wrui ig.
Four weeks ago ,. only signs o' clviiix.ii..ni

rijiiiiiiix; the mill, which '.urns out 40,(100 i'eel
o jumbir per day 24hrs.). i ;Thi mill Is rutt
by the U. P. U. it. Company now, who
bou;ht it last week, paying one hundred
t'lous tnd dollars iu gold coin have nothing1
so, Ii-re. The towu consists now all built
in t:ie last two weeks of one hotel, Tucoul-i
Triune building, half a dnz-n dwelling
lio wm and as many again saloons mid "am-,
bling dens. Whisky nnd vice in every style,
silage ami form have joined hands, while the
low i grad. s ol God's ere lion fi rm the
largest per cent, ol the inhaliitunls, which,
perhaps,- umy resell three hnudred iu all.
Enn no, a drunken eberiff, ivilh l"w of
his hoone companions, nre "promenading" up
and down in trout of ilie saloons, swearing,
showing their pistols, and llir aleiiing to shoot
any one who may presume to Interfere. Bui
this attracts very little atti ullou, and is hIIqa -ed
as a matter of course. A week ago, they
hail a poor h How for breakfast up at the In
d au dance house. His murderer escaped or he
would have been hung by a mob not so
m th for the crime he had heinously commit
,t I as lor ihe amusement it would aflord ti e
citizens, who would relish such an entertain
ment consider it only a pleusunl p.isi-lime io
wiin. us ihe sli'uffliu;,'' off of ibis nionul coil.
iiut we leave: the di pizeus, to HJiijlg Iooa
ni Ihe city, wliicli for two miles square is lal.l
out in streets, blocks nnd lots, althouli civer
ed with a dense lorest ol U r trees, most oi tin ni
200 linndred feet high and so near toetb r
that 4U0 cords of wood is the Avernge yield
p r uere. The ground is very rolling, with a
gf dual rise as you go back Irom the water's
lo, or towards the suburbs. Sixteen hun
dred acres on the cant side, towurds Puyallop
river, and Ihe finest laying land, is owned by
the Tacoma Land and Improvement Compa
ny, who have forty lueu tit work cutting
down ihe trees, which keeps' up un almost in
cessant roar, as the mighty giants of the for
es! lottel and tumble. As last as Ihe tree' are
cut. twenty men are employed wltb augurs to
laire two hob s at right angle ev ry six or ten
feel along the body of Ihe trie the holes
Hireling al alxiui Ihe h'arl ,of the log, wlu u
live coals of fire are put in ; the draft ot air
passing through the holes immediately Causes
lire, and, we are . lold, lhat logs sis and seven
feet in diameitr would hum iu two inside ol

Along the north side of the town Chinamen
ar employed grading for the railroad. ' Tlley

the U. P. Ii. H will have a line Irom Tacoma

Great green fields for bleaching

passing of glad, snowy clouds. Out of

about the other uight, busy over her tub

is the hearty 'wrestle with soiled and

such a girl knows; the soapiug and

Each country has its habits of doing
the washing. Canadian women have a
heavy wooden Middle, and beat the
clothes instead of robbing th cm. This
they call battening the clothes, and it is
an effectual way of getting them - clean.

wives use washboards but rub with their
bands a great deal, which is hardly fair
to their knuckles. M i yl.iinl housekeep
ers, or their colored servants for them
call the sun to assist in a curious wav.
They wet the clothes, rub soap plenti
fully ou the Boiled places, ami spread
them dripping in the field, where the
hottest sun reaches them. This an

I find myself in one of the lovlitst towns
of New England, a favorite resort of
city visitors, and not a washerwoman
to be had lor love or money? Not a
Yankee girl would do more than her
0n washing, though she would work iu
t shoe factory twelve hours a day for
e than she could make by laundry
w-ir, some of tbe boarders sen; the r
rurlied skirta a:id ah rts home to New
liedio a, a hundred miles bv rail, everv
week to have-them washed. Hut the
wife of the doctor of divinity he was
in tlie Uostuu Legislature, too and Mr.
Lang's pupil who played ilect!ioven for
us ami tbe second cousin of Keacon St.
blue blood we did our own wa hing
on uie hill side, and neat fun it was.
The:e were two old women who some
times did washing as a favor and charg
ed more than New York prices for it,
but they woiildu'i "go round" among
live ii mi. lied people who wanted them.
And this is tbe state of tilings in more
than one village of intellectual New L'ng
luud. fcince the Mary Anns and Abby Janes
and Eliza Marias are all educated and
gone to teaching, we will have to learn
to do our own washing once in a way.
iSinall harm wil i be, o , for our over
wrought nerves cry out lor physical
ercise to balan e and relieve the pressn
of mind. With washinir machines and
w ringers, there is no more work in a
family washing than any woman ought
to be able to do. Whether she ought
to do it is another question. But the
exercise for arms and muscles of the
chest is what women must have what
they suffer for unawares. So if any
woman finds herself obliged to do her
own washing let her comfort herself
that she is not deteriorating by it. She
has good recommendation for her work.
Mrs. Whitney has given laundry work
her recognition by letting her lady-like
Holabird girls go into the basement to
do it, and Jean Ingelo shows her thor
ough gentility by allowing ono of her
heroines to follow the example of her
grandmother, who used to "do up" their
linens and muslins in the shade of trees
ou the lawn, while ruffled aud perfumed
gallants sat on tlie other, side of the
ironing table and gossipped tne after
noon away. Now I suppose they sit in
the drawiugrooms and talk colcoptera
and vibriones and Professor Tyndall's
lust lecture, aud she has spinal irritation
and be has nervous disease of the heart.
Other times, other manners.
That women have certain rights that
even the lords of the soil will not deny
them is a proposition that admits of no
question. It is of these rights that we
talk. It is a woman's right to be pro
vided with lauor-s.ivi ig appliances to
assist her in the work ot tlie house.
The husband purchases a mower at the
expense of. several hundred dollars,
while he expects the good wife to 'make
his shirts, the boys' pants and girls'
dresses, in the old-fashioned war with a
needle and thread, when a good sewing
machine that a girl of nine years can
run can be bought for $50. If such a
purchase is mentioned she is told ' that
the coru in the east lot is poor, aud the
oats across the way will hardly pay for
cutting, aud the whole matter is treated
as if a luxury that could be easily dis
pensed with, was asked for. This spring
a tiew horse rake was bought for the
farm that cost perhaps tlio; but Who
thought ofbuyiug a kni ting-maihiue
lhat cost 4J5. And yet socks wear out,
and the old needles must be run each
evening the year round to keep tbe fam
ily in socks, while with oue ot these ma
chine a year's supply for the family,
might be provided by one of the young
ster's iu. a lew afternoons. A cultivator
cunies home in a uew wagon, but the old
wash-board brought out regularly every
Monday morniug, and "no washing-ma-chiue
is-'ever thought' of.' A threshing
machine is ,bircd to .do the work of a
flail, but al the cistern the old hook is
good enough for the "women folks" to
draw the w ater with, when for $o a good
iron pump could be provided that, wi h
proper usage, would last for years. And
so it goes, one year after another, aud
tbe wile becomes old and wrinkled, and
the girls register vowi that they will
never live on a farm.
It is true tbe money is often ' hard to
get.to purchase many of these conven
iences, but it is better to go without
tome uuueceesarv thiugstbat are bought
until they can be procured. If they
cau not be procured any other way, set

Aside from the help these things are
to women on the farm, there is another
nd grander reason why they should be
in every farmer's home, and that is the
effect they have 'n :identally, on the far
mer's family. What boy can retain

she has not had time to charge smells

ers think of this.
A woman has a right to be human, if
not to vote; to have the time to read, if
.not to run for Congress; to rest and re
creation, if not to be President. Ma
chine do the drudgery in the hay field
and why not at the wash-tub?" They
rt keand pitch the hay, and why not
knit the stocking? they hoe the corn,
and why not sew the shirts? If any
one en find an answer to these queries,
let them be published.
The Last Breath.
The v n at Miyuzint for September
opens with a readable article upon the
subject of death, and the dread of dv-
uiiT. In it tbe wn
ter shows that death,
with all i's terrors, is not so much to be
dreaded as men suppose. Ail the
known evidence upon the subject goes
to show tint at the last it is but a pain
less sleep which knows no wuking. At
20 says the writer, we talk sentimental
ly about it, or jestingly, or defiantly.
At 40 we are of a more serious mood:
we carry a grave or two in our hearts,
and scarce care to stroll for choice in
churchyards. At 60 we have accepted
i as a dire necessity. "Friend after
friend has disappeared over that steep
hill; and the command to climb may
come to us at any time." Of feelings
and last words of the dying be says:
"The old man prates pleasantly of the
pastime of his sturdy youth, the old wo
man laughs again lovingly to her boy
lover, and Napoleon expires a lonely ex-
ile at St. Helena, with a last proud cry
of TM d'armf" Dr.Bailie said ttiat in
his vast experience he has never known
more than one ouf"of every fifty dying
men quit life ono whit more conscious
than when they entered it. "Light,
more light?" cries Goethe with his part
ing breath. Dr. Cullen, when dying,
faintly intimates to a friend: "I wish
I could write; I would describe bow
pleasant a thing it is to die. Bacon at
the point of death, writes with incapa
ble tincers of the snow, stuffed fowl
which cost him life. Dr. Black, while
ea tin if bread and milk, dies so tranquilly
that his stiffeued fingers grasps the
spoon with i ts contents unspilt. Coffee
cup in hand, the spirit of Sir Charles
Blagden passes away, while Gay Lussac
notes the cup of uutasted coffee iu the
dead man's hand, not a drop having
fallen to the ground. "That we live in
tbe shadow of death is true, but the
shadow is no terrible darkness that need
stare or terrify us, and when it com
pletely envelopes us then we shall be
'Like one who raps the drapery of his couch
About him, and lies down to ph as nil dreams."
From Harper's Weekly
Our Foreign Critics and Caesarism.
The Edinburgh lisvieir, which ten
years ago was constantly foretelling the
utter fall of the Union and the triumph
of barbarism and chivalry, is still con
cerned for the future wellfare of our
country. It thinks that w herever de
mocracy is preponderant there must be
distrust ami uncertainty. It asserts
t (at it is not unusual to meet iu Ameri
ca with men who sih for au absolute
rale and a military despotism. Proba
bly our astute eoteinporary has been
studying some of the burlesques on
Caesarisra that have been widely spread
during the summer season over tl c
eountry, and has been deluded by ca
nards 'that are the amusement of the
idle. Baron Ilubner, whose travels the
Keview follows, meets with a Western
"Governor" was it Gratz Brown?
who holds the following very singular
lauguage. "Yes," be said, possibly in a
hypochondriacal condition of spirits
"yes, we are a great, a flvriovs nation.
But we are unsound. The Union has, I
fear, no future." We confess we do not
share in the melancholy train of thought
of the Governor or the Revittt. To all
persons of common sense the future ol
ihe I' n ion must seem at least as well as
sured as the throne of Victoria or the
republic of France. We are satisfied
with our lot. But it may be well to re
member tbat the dangers of. the Union
are less pressing now than ever before
in its history, and that they have de
creased yeur by year with the progress
of the people. It is the good sense of
the majority that has invariably saved
the country in its moments of doubt.
The struggles of factions are moderate
now to what they were in earlier times.
Even the slanders and outcries of disap
pointed politicians are less noisy.
When Hamilton and Madison were
composing their essays on the Constitu
tion, and Jefferson, with more of the
acuteness of novelty, was suggesting bis
doubts and his wishes in bis less preten
tious style, it is not to be supposed that
the Uuion was safe, or that politicians
were less vigorous in their denunciations
of each other, that private character or j
publio merit was spared in, the strife of
factions. The tounders or tne Dtate
