There's never a day so sunny
But a little cloud appears;
There's never a life so happy
But lias had its time ! t a r u;
Ye the sun shines out the brighter
When the stormy tempest clears.
There's never a garden growing
With rises in every plot;
Tlnue's never a heart so hardened
But ha; one tender spot;
vVc have only to prune the b* rder
To !iud the for-gct-mc not.
There's never a cup so pleasant
But has bitter with the sweet;
There's never a path a*» rugged
That beats not the print of feet;
And we have a helper promised
For the trials we may meet.
1 here's never a sun that rises
But we kn >w twill set at night;
The tints that gleam in the morning,
At evening are just as bright;
And the hour that is the sweetest
Is between the dark and light.
There's never a dream that's happy
But the waking makes us sad;
There's never a dream of sorrow
But the waking makes us gla I;
We shall loo a some day with wouder
At the troubles we have had.
There's never a way so narrow
But the eutrnuee is made straight;
There's always a guide to point us
To the "little wicket gate;"
Ami the angels will l»c near
To a auul that is desolate.
FROM THIS MISSION.
Mission, 1. T.^Junt», 2Ü, 1881.
Ed. Tellek. —1 suppose nil the
readers of the Teller have heard
something inoro or levs of this old
(Jutliolie Mission, situated thirty iniks
Iront Ft. Cœur d' Aleut) on C.cur d'
Alene river. To get to the Mission
you take ill : ftiit iu« Mull.in road, mid
thing!?go very well until you reach
Fourth of July canyon, kj named
from heilig the spot when* Colon. 1
Million struck camp on that date 18G1.
Here, for a short distance 'it is any
thing hut inviting, und a traveler's
heart must not fad him, knowing there
are better tilings beyond. After gel
ting th'ough the canyon you have it
very good road to this point. Leav
ing the Mission the rond crosses und
recrusses the river sixty three time lie
fere reaching tho summit of Bitter
Knot mountains. J have heard it said
(Lionel Mullan was a cold waterman
Ijnnd very fond of fishing. 1 presume
that is the reason he kept his road in
mhIi dose proximity lo the river. A
few words about the M issio.ii: 1 doubt
if a more beautiful spot could lie found
in this large territory of Idaho. A
traveler having travelled over the road
is agreeably surprised whin reaching
here to see the large fields n every
side, the numerous buildings, und the
noble old church occupying a promint
position in the emterus if monarch
of nil it surveyed. The church is cer
tainly a surpris ; to all who see it, when
wo think h iw mi b a large Structure
could have been built thirty or forty
years ago, when this was nothing but
one vast wilderness, indeed seems some
thing marvelous. It is built in the
mos< subsian ia! manner and is a won
dcrfnl piece of wcikman«hip
stood the storms of years past, ami
front appearances, will stand mifny to
come us if built on the "It tek of Ages."
To build it must have required many

satisfactorily co npleted. I lie inside is I
just, or nearly so, as it was when oc
cupied; the alter is still decorate ! with
flowers nod hands true trimming«, pic
lures adorn the walls, and everything
looks as if awaiting the priest and con
greualinn. I suppose everything was
done by tlie good old p ons priests to
make the "Noble lied M in" see tbe
errors of his way and lo keep his
scalping knife in his belt. The priests
»ml brothers who were here, indeed
deserve great credit for leaving homes,
friends and all, to come to this great
wilderness to tench the Indians of'
"Him that was crusiiied." In tliia I
must say they have succeeded to a cer
tain ext, ut. Indians pissing through
here regard the old church as some
thing sacred. The old mill with its
huge stone burrs and pondrous machi
nery is also of int'-res', it »-a« run nei
ther by water or steam power, but by
the .steady slow going old oxen. There
are many other things here that aie
, rn ». ■
interesting and curious. 1 lie Mission
being situate» so fir from civilization
and it* inhabitants' ma' paving an extra
large stock of supplies, tnw minds of
the good .priests aud brothfrs bad to
be drawn away froth heaveo&r subjects
and their inventive powers brought
forth by which many useful article*
were made. To a person who has
never vNiteJ the old M'ssion, a day
could be very pleasantly spent iu look
ing around. The fields and mountains
at this season of the year nro clothed
i i their most beautiful dress, the wild
flowers send forth their fragrance
and indeed make this an enchanted
place. Grain, timothy, vegetables, etc.
are iu a thriving condition. Experi
nio its are being made tlrs season with
di feront kinds of vegetables that have
uevr grown in this locality, and I
think will prove a success. Fort Ceeur
d'Aleno is supplied with hay from here;
there are from two to three hundred
tons of hay cut every season, and the
prospect this season for a larger yield
is greater than heretofore. Our popu
lation now numbers fif een eouls, in
cluding six Indians who have come
here to spend the Summer. The
steamer Amelia Wheaton, from Cœur
d'Alene arrives monthly, but as soon
as the haying harvest commences she
will mako tri weekly trips. I have
heard it suid from parties coming over
the road that there are some gent lernen
down below, who have an idea that
Mullir's road is not passible. Allow
me, sir, to correct that idea; the first
travelers pussed aver to Montana ubout
tho first of April, and it lias been trav
elled-ever since by horsemen and pack
animals. Four wagons arrived a few
days ugo from tho Post and left ycsler
day for Montana, whether they will
get there or not is u question that I am
unable to answer. A eliimtman from
yrur rising city was also here and 1
asked his opinion of the road between
tlie Post und Mission, he answered,
" oo-inuc' ee water, t >o much ec locks"
and there, you know it in a nutslnT.
l iiere are several prospectors in this
part- of tho country prospecting for
"ihe liilhy lucre," and I have no doubt
if they were to "strike it rich," the
exciting time of 181ÎI would occur
again. Two quartz mines have been
worked and produced quartz that lias
assayed well. Tho owners expect in u
day no' far distant, lo astonish the na
tives of 1 d ill o und I Ilf* great north west.
Mr. Hayden, the general proprietor of
the Mission is uu old "stager," having
boon in this country for tho past twi n
ty five years. Ho has no palace hotel
here, but when the weary travelers
come along they lind the Mission a
"heaven of rest," and can bo supplied
with the comforts and neoess trie* of
life. Wo also have un olltee hern of
the U. S. Military Tel. «er. and there

IMPORTA NT TO SETTLERS.
United States Land Office,
Lewiston, I. T., June 30, 1881.
Editor Tf.llbk: —I desire through
your columns lo answer some questions
relative to the practice of initiating
claims to public lands.
First, upon unsurveyed l nds, no
steps can be t ken toward* making re
ord of claims until tho plats of sur«
voy are received at the local office; af
ter which date, homes 1 ead and pre
emption s'ttlera have three months ia
which to make filing and entry.
.Second; upon surveyed lands pre
emption declaratory statements may ba
sen* by mail; fee, $3 00. Homestead
application can bn filed, only when the
affidavits are taken before the Register
or Receiver, or a clerk of a court of
record within tho district where the
land lies, and when taken before such
clerk, the reason therefore must hu
stated, as distance, sickness or some in
surmountable cause, the character and
ex ent of the approvements upon thu
land must also be shown, and i:ia ne
cessary for the party to be actually re
siding upon the land at the dite of his
uppl cation. Fees and commissions,
Timber culture cases may be made
up before this office or any officer qual
ified to administer oaths within the
district » he;* the land applied for lies.
Provided, that when made up before a
Justice of the Keac-, his official capa
city must be authenticated by the
clerk of u court of record, under seal
er by tho county clerk. Fees and coin«
mission, $14 00 for over 80 acres;
$9 00 for 80 acres or less—on either
minimum or double minimum lands
Le, and commissions on double mini
mum lauds in homestead entry are
822 00 for ICO acres, and $16 00 for
80 a très.
Before proof can be made upon
homestead and pre emption claims at
least G months residence must be shown
aud sufficient improvements, including
a good habitable house to show good
faith. Settlers upon unsurveyed lands
must show, at least, 3 months residence
after 'lie date of the return of the plats
as uforesaid, before proof will be ac
cepted. It will be seen that past set
tlements may t>e alleged in homestead
and pre-emption cases. Some actual
work must be done upon the tract
claimed, in order to constitute a settle
ment, merely going over the land to
examine it, does not amount to settle
ment. Something which would give
notice of a claim must be done.
Rights under the timber culture law
attach only upon the entry heing filed
iu the laud office; this can i>e done only
after return of plats. Plats of the sur
vey north of Spokune, in this district,
are expected to be filed in this office ia
July or August next. Circulars of in
structions will be furnished upon ap
plication to this office.
