Busch, General Agent, Ogden, Utah, At the request of some twenty ladies in LL '' vist< ' 11 . Mr. Woods opened a Uni versity class in English Literature at his residence lust evening. The subject selected for reading is Longfellow's Evangeline, and two hours were profit ably spent in reviewing tiie circum stances giving rise to the poem, the in troduction to it, and the first few lines of the poem. The attention of the class is so directed that tiie reading of this imem will serve as a general introduc tion to the study of tiie English lan guage, to its origin and growth; and the class promises to lie not only pleas ant but very entertaining. Ladies only are admitted, and the limit to the numl *- r the ability to accommodate, ,,, „ , „ , The case of the United Stato n Mr. and ; M ^ * obn Madd f ' ,,r 1 ** uor to Indians, was dsnissed at Boise . City upon a technicality, as the in „ f , diet meut s failed to state to what reser vation the Indians belonged and to whom the liquor was sold. The Boise Statesman says: "John Madden, his wife anil elild have lieen lilierated from the county jail, where they hud been held for several days under several in dictments for having sold liquor to In dians. Judge Beatty sustained demur rers which hud been interposed to tiie has of By is a Indictment, and the prisoners were dis clmrged. United States Attorney Wood immediately gave notice of his exeep tion to the ruling of the court. He will take at least one c of ca8 f to ' he a P* pellate court at San Francisco." Gcnera , Tannatt of Plllouse clty , j speaking of the alleged error in the lo j (>f t|le Idaho . Wa sl,lngton boun dary line, lias said to a Spokane Spokes, man reporter: "It is a mistake that the correct line is supposed to run twelve miles west of Spokane. It is twelve miles east of Spokane. My son is surveyor of Whitman county, and I think we have a pretty good idea of ! the lino. When the line was laid in 1873 the surveyors were instructed to start at a given point near the junction ! of the Clearwater and Snake rivers, j but tiie point they were to start at had | been washed away. What is supposed j j 1 tobe the correct survey' will not, as Senator McConnell states, take in Spo kane, hut it will take in Pulman and give Idaho two agricultural colleges within ten miles of each other. Idaho would also get Palouse City, Latah, Rockford and a number of thriving towns in eastern Washington." The East Washingtonian lias tills to say about Joe Couch, a former resident of this city: "Gose Fields had a lively experience with a crazy man on Friday of last week. Gose was sitting quietly in a chair in tiie hotel bur when Joe Couch came up to him anil said, "Damn you, I can lick you," at the same time striking Gose a stining blow Gose tried to reason with | in the face, Couch, thinking he was intoxicated, | but Couch insisted on a fight and eni ! pliasized his words with another blow. Gose then sprang to his feet and a reg ! ulnr Sullivan knock-down ensued, which continued for several minutes ^fore the enraged men were separated. Couch was at once arrested and placed in charge of the authorities. He hud been imbibing rather freely and it was then thought that he was only intoxi cated, but lie didn't sober up, and his friends finally came to the conclusion that lie was insane. He remained in churge of the sheriff until Saturday ev cning, when lie was examined by phy sieians who recommended his commit 'ment to the Insane asylum." Rotiert Laing, a resident of Boise, has made a discovery which may tie of great value to the sage brush districts Idaho, Utah, Nevada and other states. Mr. Laing is a practical paper maker, and some time ago he became imbued with the idea that the sage brush which grows so rankly between Boise and Nampa might be converted into coarser grades of paper. He se cured a wagon-load of tiie supposedly useless shrub, and began to experiment. By uslug the lime process, and treating the limbs of tiie brush to a protracted boiling, he secured a pulp that more than satisfied his expectations. It was equal to the very best wood pulp, and tiie presence of a long and strong filier was plainly demonstrated. Mr. Laing states that lie can manufacture sage brush paper at small cost and that he can make a profit bv selling it ut four and one-half cents per pound. He will start east soon, his idea being to interest capitalists to aid him in devel oping his discovery, Tiie Chinese New Year hus just been celebrated with its usual amount of noise and din. The average Chinese resident has been full of happiness and gin since lust Thursday night, when, with gong and fire crackers they began driving the devil out of town. All the Chinese have taken the week offund it is useless to send for a laborer or a cook, and will lie till the celebration is over. Each Chinaman keeps open house and entertains ids callers with cigarettes, water melon seeds, betel nut, candies and tea, with generous libations of sake (Chinese 40-rml) to wash down the good things. In their social festivities they play at one game which, for nov elty ei pials the famous tiddle-de-winks. It 1ms no name. Four people play at each table in tiie center of which is placed a howl of sake. Two of the players chant a rigina-role, after the style of "Simon says thumbs up," and the player who makes a blunder is compelled to take a swallow of the suite. This liquor is strong enough to knock the spots off' the sun and before the players have progressed far the players' tongues get thick and one by one they go down under the table. On the wind up of the feast there is never a sober Chinaman in the town. The work on Harrington's saw null plant is progressing rapidly. Mr. Forte who has charge of the work, says that the foundation will bo ready for the carpenters In about three weeks. The foundation has been built on a novel plan; as no piling could lie driven through the rocks they were set on tin ter tal ill till lie of ull of of a level ground, and a solid siding of boards nulled to them, making a com-1 plete box. Across this box run heavy sleepers. Tiie outside of the frame i. protected by' a ripraj) of rock extending from the top of the frame to a distance of eight or ten feet from the bottom, with the exception of the outer corner facing the stream where the rocks ex tend to a distance ofeighteen ortwenty feet, and will lie further protected by heavy boulders brought from tiie mountains. The inside of this corner is braced with rock the same as the out side, as this will lie the most exposed point of the foundation. Tiie inside of tiie frame is filled witli dirt, solidly packed in, and this will receive a cov ering of rock to prevent a washout in ease of unusual high water. Those ac quainted with the river seem to doubt the power of the foundation to with stand the current, hut if finished us is contemplated, we see no reason to fear such a result, as there would be no rea son to fear tiie effect of a wash, and as there wouid he no means of moving it except bodily, in all likelihood it will stand. Besides the men at work here a large force are busy cutting timber for tiie drive in tiie spring. Mr. Forte says they are well jileased with Clear water timber and their boom site, und he estimates the latter capable, with slight extension, of holding one million feet of lumber. He also informed us that the plant was loaded on the cars ready for shipment, but would not reucli here until the river ojx'ned and tiie boat commenced to run. With few more such enterprises headed by men of such energy and ability, Lewiston would have a foundation for a healthy business growth. Estray Notice.

Attention is again called to the mat ter of <>stal)1isniiig one of tiie experi mental stations at or near Lewiston. There will be three of these experimen tal stations established in Idaho, two ill the south and one in the north. Each station will he supported by an annual endowment of $0000. These experimental stations are to lie under the control of the Uuiversity of Idaho, till such time as the legislature shall otherwise direct. It is the wish of the government that the experiments shall lie conducted in the arid regions of the state. The dry fiuts south of Lewiston will make the finest site for the station of any place in the north of Idaho'. Governor Willey, himself,has expressed himself in favor of the site south of town. The Board of Regents meets atiout the middle of this month to take final action In this matter. It was generally conceded that the benefits that would result to uny plate and the country surrounding it, by reason of such location, were so great that there would lie but little difficulty in obtain ing from such plat« a gift of land, a water right should it be necessary, and such buildings as may be found requi site for the purpose, and by calculations carefully made the buildings will cost hut little. The University will provide ull apparatus and labor necessary to conduct the station. Now the Board of Regents meets in a few days at farthest. Does Lewiston want the ex periment station? There are hundreds of acres of available lands in the vicin ity that can be bud to pluce the station. The Sweetwater Ditch company could lie induced for a proper remuneration to furnish,the water necessary for the work. Tiie citizens of Lewiston can not afford to set idly by und let this opportunity go unnoticed. It Is in it self a good thing. It is further a splen did nucleus about which to center the Agricultural College. This will make a splendid opening to present in our claim for the location of the college at the next session of the legislature. Lewiston,s claims must lie presented. Here is the best and only projier loca tion for such a station in the north of Idaho. If it goes some place else it will he because no effort was put forth by our citizens to secure the prize. Fruit Scale Wash. This remedy has been extensively used In California anil has proven a good fungicide ns well us insecticide. Experiments have been made to find which of the material 1» the Insecticide, ^ cannot be claimed for either sep 19 arately, but to the combination, and upon ttiat account they should be well boiled. Following are the parts: 35 pounds unslacked lime, 20 pounds sul pher, 15 pounds salt, water to make 00 gallons. Direction—Place 10 pounds of lime and 20 pounds milphcr In a boiler with 20 gallons of water over a brisk fire for at least one hour and a half or until all the sulphur is dissolved when this takes place the mixture will be of an amber color. Next, place in a cask or water tight box the remaining 25 pounds of unslucked lime, pouring over it enough hot water to thoroughly slacken It, anil while it is yet lint, and boiling add the 15 pounds of salt. When this is dissolved add It to the lime and sulphur in the boiler and cook for half an hour longer, when the necessary amount of wuter to make 00 gallons is added. The solution should then lie strained through a struiueror a piece of burpop. When using it should lie fie quently and well stirred. Use while yet warm and only when foliage Is off of trees. M. J.

Pii'KK, Judge, Of the Second Judicial District of the state of Idaho. of WaB Beady to ßtrike. It is openly admitted at the navy department, now that there Is no lon ger any reason for concealment, that the government was fully prepared to euforce its demands against Chile In case they were not secured by more pa cific methods of negotiations through liplonmtie channels. The entireavull ulile naval force hod 1 k«u concentrated so us to be able to make a concerted attack on Chilean ports. The Pacific squadron, consisting of the Ban Fran cisco, Charleston, Baltimore, Boston and Yorktown, would have been speedily reinforced by the South At: Inn tic squadron, now lh Montevideo, (insisting of the Chicago, Atlanta, Bennington and Essex, and the Phil adelphia and the Concord, of the North Atlantic squadron. The two last named vessels are now on their way to Montevideo. The Conbord arrived at Bahia to-day, and the Philadelphia is beyond thut port on her way to Monte ideo. If she touches at Bahai it is probable she und tho f 'oncord will be ordered hack to the West Indies. The Miantonomali, Newark and Vesuvius were held in reserve for possible ser vice. At the saint time great stores of coal, ammunition and provisions bad been forwarded on both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, so the fleets should be amply supplied In case foreign ports should be closed to them. Arrange ments were made for the immediate use of u number of transports and aux iliary cruisers, und the steamship Ohio was to lie fitted out at Boston as a re pair ship. Four steamships were chartered from the Earl steamship company, laden with coul and sent to Montevideo. It is believed that one of them has already reached Montevideo, and the others will arrive in a short time. These ves sels were to ho used as colliers and would ply between the naval fleet and home ports. The steamer Benito Was chartered tor similar purposes on the Pacific. Other arrangements were made to secure the delivery of 1000 tons of coal a month at a point convenient for na val vessels. The plaiks contemplated the early seizure of a Chilean port for use us a base of supplies. The prepar ations entailed great expense, roughly estimated ut about $2,(MM),000. The fore going estimate Includes coal with ex pense of pushing work on vessels now under contract, and extra work in the different yards and shops. The orders of the officers and men of the Ohio have been revoked und the work of fitting her out is suspended. The de partment will now be busy for a long time undoing many of its preparations mid restoring the naval establishment to Its usual basis. Republican Ltogue Club*.
