Monday.— Gtldendalf Courier.
I). D. Garrison, of The Dalles, was in
the city this week. He is a native Ore-
Koniau, and, being of middle age, is there
fore a pioneer. He remember* pioneer
days very kindly and recalls frontier ex

he clips Into civilization once in a while

he insihts that the free air of the frontier
possesses the qtittlily of ozone he likes

in blue fou(ht. The old heroes have lost
none of their former readiness to fight and
the manner in which they bombard
the eccentric editor is evidence of their
enduring patriotism.
The public schools of this city will be
opened for the fall term on the 18th iu
stant. Twelve teachers, in 'luriintr that
for the music and drawing department,
have been enKa«ed, the probable cost for
which during the ensuingschool year will
bo about $7,250. The variouß depart
ments will be carefully organized and
the teachers are all busily engaged in
preparing for the commencement of their
important work.
The Agricultural college, at Pullman,
will open for the fall term on Wednesday,
September 13, with a carefully selected
corps of professor*, hi) of whom are men i
eminent in their profession. The curric
ulum will be in keeping with the high
merits of the faculty. Students attend
ing the college have the assurance that
when the course shall be completed and
they shall have graduatod, they will
have received a thorough college educa
tion.
Oregon papers are devoting connider
abie space just now to criticising the
game law in that state that prohibits tin
shipment of the Golden and Mongolian
pheasants to other states. Application
(or them has been made by parties in
Ohio, but the order cannot lie tilled. Re
specting tnis matter the Oregonian nays:
"Tuere are several persons in the state,
Mr. M. O. LonwMiUle in particular, who
have raised in their chicken business
considerable number* of these pheasant*,
and n>» the question is brought up
whether a person cau be allowed to ship
these pheasants oat of the state. There
id room for a 1 >ng lawsuit on this point,
the name as there was on the right of a
of a man who had bought tilth lawfully
caught to preserve them in cold storage
and dispose of them as heaaw fit. There
were precedents against this, but com
mon sense and good judgment were in
favor of it, and the same could, without
doubt, live any person the right to kill,
sell, eat or ship outof the state pheasant*,
Mongolian or utherwiso, that be had
raised in a domestic condition. They
would be bia own birds, and not wild
game, and. all "musty-fusty" precedents
to the contrary would give him full con
trol at biaowo property."

11. I. Hesse, business ayent of the
state farmers' alliance, in an interview
states that he has a scheme to prevent
farmers from buflV ring locs by reason of
the low price of wheat. He proposes to
store the. b-dk of the crop of the state
and mortifHue it for from 21) to Si) cents a
bushel, enabling the farmers to pay their
bills for harvesting and to hold on for a
better price. Hesse anys bo has good
information that large sums are locked
in safe deposit vaults here and elsewhere,
and calls attention to what (jood security
wheat in and urges the people, for the
benetit of the entire state, to help the
farmers and prevent them from selling at
ruinous rates. He is looking for storaue
room. He estimates the crop of Wash
ington at 10.U00,000 hushels.
Senator Mitchell assures enquirers from
this state that there is no likelihood that
the land nfliee districts of Washington
will lie consolidated. The matter has
been investigated by the department,
which concludes that the business being
done requires them all us they are at
present.

Mo tin! men who sit up in lordly dis
dain and lulk about women's fickleness
in the matter of styles realize that they
c on't know what they are saying? Not
one of them has ever seen a picture of a
woman of any period whose dru|ienes
were not more or less like the draperies
of to-day. Skirts have varied in width,
but there have always been skirts; sleeves
have been enormous or scant, but there
bave always been some sort of draperieß
over the arms. Bodices have been tight
or loose, but there have always been
j bodices.
On the other hand, men's fashions
have changed in marked decree from
time to time. Caesar's wife, for instance,
V"nl.l ■'■hi feel so hopelessly out of place
in a modern drawing room as Caeaer
himself would. (Jiicen Klizabeth would

Senator IJolph has introduced a reso

AYARICK VKHNI'S ivS'HIfM'E.
KnnnK Yakima Ukiiai.d: The subject
of Sunday daring which is beinu' ilin
(HMd by the people of North Yakima
surely demands consideration by every
one interested in the lirmti'-inl social and
moral improvement of our city. The pe
tition circulated by the W. C. T. U.
shows a strong MatbMM in its favor, M
it contains the names of ttic mayor, one
councilman, a lar>;c percent, of the busi
ness, professional and real estate men of
the city About M ei|UHl number of men
und women signed thi< petition. Uhh
are not "cranks," but persons who lime
the beet inttrests of the city ut heart, and
they believe that no loss will lie sustained
by the business men in pursuing fin h a
course. If all close no one can last by
it. It would be an insult to your intelli
gence to arjin- ii point that is so plain as
this. These persons know, too, that the
loss of a few dollars, which some have
said would be the result, is not the grwt
eat consideration in the affairs of govern
ment, for in the words of » nri.it party in
its nutional platform, "The first concern
of all good government j s tii; ■ virtue und
sobriety of its people and the purity o(
the home."
Tliiß movement does not design unr
even intimate a revival of the old "lilue
law," but we wonlil n.-k, and will the
opposers of this oetition HHWR candidly.
which class in auy community is most
virtuous, most Holier ami enjoys the pur-
Ml home life, tin' clans Hint ritwllHlllWl
the laws of Uate, of yood society mid of
i iiid. or the class that obeys nnd would
euforce these laws? It is a question of
loyally, for the law says that places of
busincHS shall be kept closed on Sunday.
There are those who would prefer to keep
closed doors one day in seven, bat be
cause of a few who have no regard for the
higher and letter state of society brought
about by the proper lll—mint of the.
laws of the hind and of (iod, there ttre
compelled to sell p.i.nl.s every day in the
weik or lose their share of the Sunday
trade. There arc mill other* whoso con
victions oi right are surli that they will
not disregard the laws and desecrate the
Ijord'a day ; so these keep their places of
business cluse.il through Sunday and
lose that portion of the trade. Hence, it
is clear that in allowing a few lawless
ooee to control we work an injustice to
many. Let there be a uuited effort made
by all who favor the social and Moral ad
vancement of our people, and the proper
observance of the laws of the stiite and of
tiod, and then will Yakima le*d the state
in these things ax she dues now in nat
ural resources. M. L. Rom:.

A well-known nnd truthful young lady,
Miss Olive E Calleen, of Shipman, 111.,
who puts in a porlion of her time attend
ing to school duties at the Indiana Nor
mal College, relates to friends at Shipman
a somewhat sensational and exciting
story cf v heavenly phenomenon wit
nessed by herself and some friends at
Covington, lud., v night or two since.
Miss C»ffeen was sitting out of doora
viewing what to her was a strange sight
in the shape of an unusual band or circle
of light in MM northern heavens in about
the same location where it is reported the
tail of the recent comet was discovered,
when she noticed excited families of the
n'MnMiorhood in tho streets viewing the
southeastern sky.
A glance in that direction showed her
a phenomenon which, in her own words,
consisted of "angel forms in solemn pro
cession marching in stately treud through
the realms of space in full view." In the
heavens, marching by twos, wus a parade
of what appeared to be human forms clad
in flow ing robes. As fast as one com
pany, consisting of from ten to Qfleen
couples, would disappear from view an
other would take its place and the visita
tion lasted ten minutes. The forms were
so lifelike that seemingly the movement
of the limbs could lie distinguished.—

in which Miss (Inrriit Sawyer, Mesdames
Needhiitn and Nichols and Messrs.
Clark, Milner and Orecne participated,
with the result that such pupil should not
be required to study in confinement more
than two hours a day.
Ci'ics, ns prescrilicd in the coarse of
study, it was lielievcl, is too heavy for
those below the fifth-reader grade.
The reading circle this year will use

ferent use of apparatus provided; the
grading of schools und the law that re
quires it; the great demand for a more
definite course of Kind.., and kindred
themes.
Rev. Claypool resumed his subject of

a BIT OF HISTORY.
The First ll< M>«n«iblllti •» llir Den.
orrallc Parif.
It is commonly said that the Democratic
party in responsible for legislation for the
first time since 1801, this last being the
date of the inauguration of the first Re
publican president. But, to be exact, it
is ueccsnnry to go back two years farther.
During the first half of Mr. Buchanan's
administration, that is to say from March
4, 1X57, to March 4, 1861), the democrats
had control of every department of the
government. John C. Breckinridge of
Kentucky presided over a Democratic
cenntp anil James L. Orr of South Caro
lina huh the speaker of a Democratic
house. The Democratic party wan then
able to perfect legislation, and vu re
sponsible for the laws enacted.
After March 4, 1850, this condition of
things no longer existed. When congreei
met in December a long struggle ensued
over the organization of the house, which
ended on February 1, 1800, with the elec
tion of William Pennington of New Jer
sey, a Republican. From March 4,1850,
until August 7, 1893, a period of more
than thirty-four years, there'has been no
strictly Democratic legislation, except
such as received the assent of a Republi
can president.
In 1802, says the Courier-Jounu.l o
Louisville, the Republicans inaugurated
their first president and controlled both
houses of congress. This control lasted
till 1875, when the Democrats controlled
the bouse for the first time after the war.
Id 1877 they again had the house, but
the Republicans bad tlio senate and tba
president. From 1881 to 1883 the Re
publicans had both houses and the preii
dency, though they held the senate by a
dicker with General Mabone. From 1863
to isv.i the Democrats had the house, but
the Republicans had tho senate. From
1880 to 1891 the Republicans were again
in full control, and did much to create
the conditions from which the country is
now suffering. In 1891 the Democrats
regained control of the bouse, and in the
present year liavo again obtained control
of the presidency and the senate.
.Thus in thirty-four years the democrat*
had the presidency six rears, the senate
four years and the house fourteen yean,
but never hail all three at one time. The
Republicans had the presidency twinty
eigbt years, the senate thirty and the
bouse twenty years. During eighteen
years it bad control of both housed and
tho presidency.
Mrs. Lease, it is said, has earned suf
ficient to send her boo to college, set her
husband up in the drug business, and
buy a nice (arm, besides a lot of new
gowna and loves of bonnets. Even ca
lamity howling, it seems, may be made a
profitable business. — Ttieoma Ledgtr.
