In Memory (Of Marcus S. Whitman, died Sept. 10th, 1879, aged 11 years). Dedicated to Ins mother by a friend : He is gone and infaitli I will wait bis return. For that glow' from his eye, for a word by him spoken ; T'would banish forever this anguish of min'd; T'would heal up ;ny heart by his absence now broken. Dark night has come down between Marcus and me ; Every trace has been swept but what mem ory treasured. 1 peer into space, I listen, nor see But that broad gulf between, unknown and unmeasured. Eleven in years, only boy, only brother, So pure like a rose bud with promise and life. Oh why is this sorrow, the pain to a mother? Oh why should her soul with such anguish lie rife ? He will come when I'm called, when my days have been numbered, Oh why should I wish him to earth with its cares ! He has gone to our home free from grief, unincumbered, Unlike earth, with its toils, its sorrows and snares. 'Tis but a moment with earth'» fading pleas ures, The Savior has taken him home to his rest. 'Tis folly to weep o'er earth's valueless treas ure?, Nor mourn, but rejoice to soon meet with the blest. We will meet when the evening of life has departed. For life and its shadows are but friends of a day, Farwells are deep wounds to the sad broken hearted Preparing o ur souls for Eternity' s way. 1 etter from Graiigeville. Grangevillk, Aug. 30. Mr.Editor.- One of thoso cold waves they talk about was passing over the prairie a few days since, and un- j fortunately caught on something and j » ° 1 still waves to the disgust of all well disposed citizens, if it don't soon get loose and piCss over, we will have to get up a stock of fire-wood and defer harvesting until next Spring. The settlers who are used to these cool waves rather enjoy it, for well we know some of the advantages th it ^ come to us through the'cold—it is at such times as this, that the festive bed-bug thinking old Winter is upon him, retires gracefully* to his crack of dormancy and the weary granger can rise in the morning refreshed by un disturbed sleep. But there is reason in all things, and when nature paint s our mountain with, snow down to within five miles of our cucumber patch we object along with the "ten der-feet. Harvesting has commenced its good earliest, andlront a'l the ground that was sown early there will Ire an abundant yield. Grain ripens slowly, and harvest will be much later than usual with us; büt there will be agood yield, and we believe, a ready market for all our produce this year. Emi grants continue to arrive daily, and at once interview the land agent, then the saw.mill is visited and soon another house rises on tho prairie. Ere long the emigrant who will not stop Jiis weary team until he drives into the very town of Mount Idaho will find to his sorrow that he can not go any fur ther and that the land over which he has traveled is all taken. Judge Bück reached the prairie on a grey horse on Thursday and this (Mon day) morning started through the mountains for Boise City in charge of P. Beamer as pilot. The judge, dur ing his stay with us lies made a host of warm friends, by his pleasant manners, and his sterling qualities as manifested both on the bench and in his inter course with us social!)'. He will re turn and hold an extra term of court here during October. We all esteemed Judge John Clark highly for the many good traits of character that he pos sessed, and because he was so long iden tified with the interests of north Idaho He died universally regretted in this part of the territory, and his memory will long ontlast this generation, but since death removed him we are glad that his mantle fell upon 30 worthy a successor as Norman Buck. We are sorry to record the death of four of our citizens, all having been drowned in Salmon river during the past week. There seems to be a fatality attending that river, so much so, that many hesi tate to cross its black waters. George, Foss and W. Dean, both young men, while assisting Mr. A. Chapman to cross a band of horses, were taken un der to rise no more alive. After sev eral days search the body of Foss w a s recovered several miles down stream, the remaims received every attention that could be extended under the cir cumstances. A vnetalic coffin was taken down from here in which the body was i placed. His remains reached here! Sunday evening and taken into the j hall. Rev. W. A. Hall corducted the I services, preaching a short but mostex- j cellent funeral sermon, to a large and 1 deeply impressed audience. Grea. j credit is clue to the young men of our town,, who, with such earnest, persist ent effort recovered the body and gave to decent Christian burrial. The body of Dean has not yet been found, al though efforts are still being made to recover it. Charles Morton, one of tho pioneers of Florence and well known throughout our mining camps and towns as a wor thy, gentlemanly, kind-hearted man, was drowned along with a man called "Shorty" while crossing Salnicn river on a raft and we here ofstill another man being drowned last week in Clearwater ; but learned no particulars in this case. Carpenters Rouch. H. Pearson and White have completed the work on Titman's Hotel and A. W. Robinson is furnishing up tho painting and pa per-hanging. We want more of the spirit of enterprise in our town as man ifested bv Mr. Titman. Let a few I - , more such buildings take the place of some old board houses, let a few thous- and feet of lumber be put into aide- walks, and d barrel of paint be spread over our burg; then, when yoi? pass through on your way to the emporium and your eyes gaze upon those long lines of picket fence you will remem- ber us in the suburbs. It is the busi- ness men of a place that make or mar it. If they lack the enterprise and confidence to build substantial houses in which to do business and sell goods j and do business year after year over j ren . ted counters j ^at town will re 1 mail, n uinu doiinn I htu fetal* rtf in. This fear of vesting in real estate on the part of her business men kept the City of Portland back in the same way. We have as yet no church spire pointing heavenward, but we have. a very tall smoke stack pointing in that direction from the Grange Mill and it no longer matters whether Three-mile ^ creek is at high or low water the mill runs "alle same." I hear that J. M. Crooks is taking up a collection this week to buy a whistlq to , put on the engine those .who contribute get their money back again minute, asit "ware." We still lack a shoemaker, »addle and harness maker. Come on ye men of leather and wax, if after a fair trial you do hot find your business profita- ble to you here we will piss round a hat in your behalf. The Democracy of the prairie built a fire under the political pot a few days ago and it boiled so lively some of the contents boiled over, the boss engineer of the party have not as yet been able to get those who boiled over back into the pot again. The trouble is, there is not offices enough in this county to go arouud, hence the disturbance. It is hinted that the whole State of Missouri is trying to get here in time to vote, which if they do our county will most likely go Democratic. As an offset to this exodus • from Missouri, the Republican have writt n to Ger- many and are now trying to organize the Irishman. Heretofore the Repub- licans have had all confidence in the Democrats, have lived with them like brothers, so to speak, but some are bold enough now to even express doubt as to their being one honest man in the party. On one question wc are a unit our delegate to Congress must favor uniting North Idaho with Washington Ter., or we won't vote for him often. After the conventions are held and nominations are all made I will if desirable give you an out-line of the lives and general conduct of the various candidates tracing back along the ancestral line of some of them as near as I can to our first parents, this is o matter thnt has been negleted heretofore in our politics in tl.eso northern counties. The boss Teller man is down the river and I ha'e availed myself of your invitation in last weeks,paper for all hands to pitch in before he gets home.
