As much talk concerning tho es
tablishment of n reform school in
Oregon is being indulged in, there
Is much inquiry ns to how these
schools aro conducted elsewhere
and as to the class of offenders who
may bo sent there. In Missouri
where a reform school is In operation
tho law on the subject Is as follews:
Sec. 0. In all classes of conviction
for misdemeanor, or felony, if the
offender shall bo under tho ago of
eighteen years, the court may com
mute tho punishment upw pro
vided by law to confinement hi the
said reformatory school for a period
of lut less than ono nor more than
six yeuts; provided, that nothing in
tills ivct shall be construed as to ad
mit of contract labor. Aud any
court of competent jurisdiction
niay commit any boy over ten
years aud under sixteen lyears, to
tho guardianship of said institution,
whero complaint shall be sworn Jo
iincl duo proof made in open court,
In the presenco of said boy,, that ho
Is tv proper subject for the guardian
ship of said institution in couse
qiiouco of incorrigible or vicious
(section 10 provides
county shall pay $1S'J
for every boy wmt from
such con n-
ty, and that tho guardians of any
minor bent thero shall pay tho ex
pense; of sending and keeping him

llocout dispatches contain tho In

seudng rafts of saw logs out on tho
ocean, for floating to distant ports,
is to bo tiled on this coast, from
Puget Sound to San Francisco, and
to South American ports. It will

idea, Mr. II. C. Robertson, in his
llrst attempt to lloat a raft ot saw
logs from Maine to New York city,
failed; Ills raft going to pieces In iv
storm, and some of it having been
since found In tho Mediterranean.
Hut on tv subsequent attempt, with
im improved plan of construction,
ho safely landed an enormous raft
of pi no logs from Maine to Now
York harbor. Mr Robertson will
now try hlsplclll and energy in tho
raft business, on. our coast.
It keeps cold fpr democrats and
whenever ono stakes his money on
any act of tho party, ho is BU.ro to
drop it. Only a day or two ago "a

oltlees to learn when tho two cent

that, it was during Cleveland's ad

it was during Arthur's administra

A Freepokt, III., special tells a
romantic story. Joseph Degan,
onco a well known citizen of that
city, and father of a prominent rail
road man, whose head quarters are
there, left Freeport some eighteen
years ,ago, and settled in JCansas.
Ho left his wife beblnd-hlm, and
about two years later he secured a
divorce by some means and married
a Kansas woman. Ho lived with
wife No. 2 for about fifteen years
until her death. Degan was a lone
widower for a year, und then found
his heart was turning to his flist
love. A few days ago he surprised
everybody by turning up in Free
port. H hunted out hisilrst wife,
found her still single, and after a
few days of courtship they were re
married, and will settle down in
Meiti: nnd more every year the
order of the Patrons of Husbandry
is taking a hand in political affairs.
T lio other day the Pomona Grange
of Marion county passed resolutions
taking action on several questions
which must conic before the next
legislature. And from tho Min
neapolis Tribune it is learned that
the State Grange of Minncspta has
demanded the re-appointment of
the present Dairy Commissioner of
that state, and taken action on sev
eral other matters pending before
Thkiiu are some things that a
level heuded human should uqver
dp. Among these is to never kin
dlo a tiro with kerosene oil, to walk
on a, railroad track, to attempt, to
get on a moving train, to point a
guu or pistol at another, to put his
name on another man's note, to
keep his saving In an old stocking
under the bed, to play a game of
chance with a prepossessing stran
ger, to run fpr nn ofllce when ho has
a paying position in privato lifo, or
to, call a bigger man than himself a

A WINTER ItlYb.
Wooduurn, Or., Dec. 25, '88.
Editor Journal :-Porno years
ago 'a stray copy of tho West Shore
fell into my hands, nnd I remember
reading (t, as I would sonio fablo or
fairy talo and I said to iv rclatlvo
who sat listening, witli an incredu
lous smile on his face, "What makes
people wrlto such " I am afraid
1 said "lie?" "Well," said lie,
"probably some crank wrote it, so
some ono who has a lot of land to
bell, or somebody who is paid to
wrlto up tho country to gull green-,
horns." Now I don't believe I am
iv crank, I know I havon't any innd
to sell, nobody has hired mo to wrlto
up tho country (wish somebody
would), but I can eudoiso nil I read.
This is my thst Christmas in Oic-
gon, nnd It has been to mo, a revela
tion, and I want to tell somebody
else, llofoio mo liej iv boquuc of
half open roiobuds nnd pansles of
royal purple and gold, sent me from
iv neighbor's garden. A littlo lad
(who holds my heart wrapped up In
his little brown skinned anatomy)
looked through tho open door
awhile, ago, and said, "coniooutnnd
ecu (ho hills, and the Christmas sun
set." J wenU the fir trees' fragrant
breath tilled till the air. Ah, those
llr trees ! I never tiro of looking at
them, they niocver "a thing of
beauty" to me, whetherthey stand
out clear and distinct In thelrstately
grandeur or loom up dim aud ghast
ly through tho soft falling mist, J,
"lifted up my eyes to tho everlast
ing hills," that stood out in all their
purple splendor against tho eastern
sky, with all their varying tints of
light nnd shadow. Sure, no pencil
held by mortal hand could ever do
them Justice. Tho sunshiuo linger

A Proposed Salt Palace,
The people of SnltJLako City are con
templation the erection of a "Salt Palace."
It would be a stiucture that would lay
in the shade all Ite and Corn Palace over
constructed. The main part of the struc
ture could ba of the finest specimens of
rock alt to be found in the quarried, chis.
led, carved and ?rtistically arranged,
while the interior fittings should be ot crys
tallized work from the lake on a grand
scale. Such a palace should be permanent
it properly protected from the winter rains;
it could be made of the most unique and
striking style of architecture, it could be
made ono of the wonder? of tbe world.
When lighted by electricity the structure
would have all the sparkle and diamond
glitter ot the great Ice Palace and with
the Salt Fahco's favor that heat vould
not melt or dim its glories in the least.
