A lOYEB'S QCAUBEl. . lould net hear all that must have been sakl ; Uut an I sat beside the little stream T w-Mahed them part with Just one angry word. 8h passed me ipslekly with a down -drooped head. Had aheeks. ejres flashing with a scornful gleam, A batty step, as by deep paeton stirred ; he did net torn or look hack where he stood Uut vanlshed'qnlekly In lie thick green wood. I watohed him sh, then noted bow be gazed At bar retreating Jona ; be whleued low And aaniy to himself; In deepest thought Ha wtitsoered. "Is she vexed V Iben was amaxad That ta.flD truth, she really meant to go. Be looked onee more, as If Indeed he sought Tb Msg her baek; but on she wont that day r tie went too bat 'twas the other way. Thy never met again; trct oft I see Te ctrl, a woman grown, come by this seat And gnxe Into the stream with tear-worn eyes! Aa4 then I wonder why should such things be. If had turned her head or stayed her feet, lift would have altered, love's bright sunny toes Maosa o'er herfbrever! Tls bat things like tbts That form our lives, and makeourwoeor bliss! white poppies. 0 MfsVe, mighty flower, whose frail while weaves, Bllky and crumpled, Uke a banner furled. Wnoaiiw the blaek, mysterious seed that yields The drop that soothes and lulls a restless world; Nasteathes for our woe, yet swllt to kill, HoMioz the knowledge of 'both good ami ill. The case for beauty may outshine thee far, Tb lily hold herself like some sweet saint Apart from earthly grief, as Is a star Apart Irom any fear of earthly taint; The snowy poppy like an angel stands, Yttli consolation In her open hands. Bsa'Btstory was born, the poets sung Hew god-like Thone knew thy compelling power. AaCasetest Ceres, by strange sorrows wrung, Sought sweet oblivion from thy healing flower. Otvar of sleep! lord of the land of dreams! Oh simple weed, thou art not what man deems. The elear-eyed Greeks saw oft their god of deep Wandering about through the black mid- ,zttgbt hours. Doollilnr the. restless couch with slumbers deep, , Ami scattering thy medicated flowers, Till bfcajls were folded for their final rest, Ctaspteg white popples o'er a pulseless breast. We have a clearer vision; every hour Kind hearts and hands the poppy Juices And panting suSerers bless its kindly power. And weary onee invoke Its peaceful sleep. Health has its rose and grape and Joyful palm; TIM poppy to the sick Is wine and balm. Tytia; tbcpoppy! the frail, snory weed! Tit ower of mercy! that within Its heart Doth seep a drop serene for human need, A drowsy balm for every bitter smart. Tot happy hours the rose will idly blow; The poppy hath a charm for every woe. A Peculiar 'Woman. "Ketch bold, Tom. There ! I declare If you ain't spilled about a quart ! I knew you'd get it too full." "I didn't spill more than ten drops, Ciuln' Silence. How you worry over the loss of a little grease !" "It's one of my principles to save, as you might o' learned long ago." "1 bellevf in prndence ; but what's a few drops of lard more or less to you, with this farm, and nobody knows bow much in bank? You skimp and screw as if "there were danger of yourgettlngontbe lowu." "Well, you arc the frankest young man I ever saw;" and Silence Withers pot ber arms akimbo and gazed at ber young cousin, Tom Lowey, as If be wa a curiosity escaped from some mu eaaui. "Yes; I was always noted for my frankness," said Tom, coolly, "and I near hesitate to sneak mv mind when duty urges. However, I don't want to hurt your leeungs, uousin silence." "No dancer." said Miss Silence, with a Inngb of "derision. "I'm no Spring - L I - 1. atnA W faAlln'a SflP. K. n touirh. But the idea of your doty urcln you to speak your mind to me. Perhaps you don't recollect the whlpptn's I used to cive you." "I haven't forgotten," laughed Tom. . "You used to make me do my duty In those days. But I wish I could con vince you that it would be only a Chris tian act for you to send a little help to Mrs. Baldwin. You wouldn't feel the spending of fifty dollars out of your fifty thousand." "Massy sakes I It seems as If other folks know more about my business than I do myself. Fifty thousand ! Law! Who said I was worth that much?' 'Ob, it's common talk," replied Tom. "Well, It won't do you any good to talk. "Vou'll never see the color of my money alter I'm dead and gone. I've mads my will, aud since plain speakln' p eases yon.

WDerever dy m?y me when you will want It, Tom Lowey, and then you'll be sorry for sayln' them words. 1M ie member 'em, and so will you when Your pride has its fall. There's plenty o' things I can leave my monev to it won't go begging." " oneyto,u "I guess not." "You'd more'n auctt If vou t live here a spell and see the stream of visitors I have. There ain't a day but T get nagged about my money by some body. Beacon Bonney thinks it's bis bonnden duty to advise me to leave It to found an orphan's borne. Old Mr. Craig wanU it left to Wolfboro Acad emy ; Squire Darby has bis mind on it for a library ; and the minister thinks I ought to remember what a debt's on the chureh. To hear 'em talk, you'd think I had one foot In the grave. I don't give none o' them any satisfaction, and men tuey say rm peculiar. Well, per haps I am, but I don't see no prospect of any change in my natur'." Tom laughed. He was spending a couple of hours at the farm, which bad ueen ms only borne until be began to "scratcn lor nimseir." to use nis gaunt cousin's expression. Sow he never let more man a nay or two pass witnoui looking lu on the lone spinster to see if he' could give herauy help, and to-day be was making himself useful in liftinc jars and boilers or not grease ou auu on the stove; for Miss blleuce was trying out lard. Tom's law nractice. as vet. was not very exacting, much to bis regret; and he bad more time on his bauds than nleased him. "But now do promise you'll send Mrs. Baldwin something for Christmas, Cou sin Silence," said Tom, returning to tbe attack. "I never nromise what I don't mean to perform," was the characteristic an swer he received to his pleading. "Mar- rtha Baldwin and I ain't been on speak- in' terms for these Ave vears. and I'd be makin' myself pretty small to senu ner Christmas presents. I'd soon be on tbe town ir I began to help all the poor folks I know. It 'pears to me you take mighty deep interest In them Bald wins, Tom. Melissa Bonney let out a bint that you was soarkln' that Prissy Carroll." I wish Melissa Bonnev would mind her business." "Don't tret riled. I dare sav it's true. 'Twould be like you to court a gal with out a penny, because vou' ve not a penny yourself. Prissy Carroll's been raised out or charity by her aunt" -mat don't. make ner lees lovauie, Cousin Silence." ow. Tom Lowev." said Miss Si lence, brandishing tbe big. iron spoon with which she stirred tbe lard, "don't make a fool of yourself over a pretty face. 'Butter your bread before you eat it. There's Melissa Bonney, whose father's worth " "That's enouch." interrupted Tom, and before Mies Silence could stop him no was out ot the kitchen door anu walking briskly down tbe path to tbe gate. ".Lawful eakea! wbat peculiar crea tures men are. Talk of me belu' pecu liar; why. I ain't a sarcumstance to that Tom Iiowey. He'll marry that Prissy Carroll, now, if it's only to show mo ne uon't care lor my money , anu with a sigh Miss Silence went back to her lard. "Christmas gift, Indeed I" she mut tered, after standinc for some time in deep thought. "I think I see myself eatin' humble pie to Martha Baldwin." But somehow or other her conscience did not feel quite so easy as it bad be fore Tom's call. An hour later Tom was sitting In tbe widow Baldwin's small parlor, with bis arm about a very trim waist, and a very lovely golden bead resting on his shoulder. It was very evident that tho closest economy was necessary with tbnj llaldwlns, lor tbe carpet was patcueu and worn, the muslin curtains washed threadbare, and the furniture in sad need of varnish and new hair-cloth. "I wish I saw my way clear to take you out or this, Prissy," said Tom, witu a sigh; "but clients are scarce enough In Wolfboro'." "2ow. Tom, where's tbe need to worry? I couldn't leave Aunt Martha, anyway. We are both young enough to wait." "You're too coot for this world, Pris sy," said Tom, with a kiss on tbe dim pled while chin. "There's some one knocking; let me go," cried Prlesy, springing up and run ning to tbe door. It was no visitor, but the hired man from Miss Silence's farm, with tho spring wagon, which he had brought to convey im at once to uis cousiu-s home, for Miss Silence bad, not ten minutes after his departure, an hour previous, overturned a kettle of lard by accident, and been terribly scalded. "Where's my hat?" cried Tom, In great excltment, while the man was telling bow he had wasted time by go ing to the office first, and, not finding him there, had hunted blm up. "Let me go with you, Tom : I know I can help," cried Prissy, as beriover was springing Into tbe light wagon. "un, iTissy : h you oniy wouiu." "Walt until I get rny bonnet and shawl, and tell Aunt Martha; I won't be gone a minute," and Prissy ruslieu into tbe kitchen where ber aunt was ironing. "Go, by all means," said Mrs. Bald win, when she had grasped the meaning of the girl's incoherent explanation. "Stay as long as you are needed, and do not worry about me." Miss Silence made no remark when Prissy entered ber room with Tom. She was in great pain, and was thankful to see even this member of the hated Bald win household. For three weeks Prissy was chief di rector at the farm, and managed tilings so cleverly that Miss Silence had no chance to find fault. But the grim spinster had no words of commendation for the young girl's untiring Industry. "I calkerlate to pay you for what you have done," she said one day, as she watched Prissy making bread. "You needn't think you're work! n' for noth in'." "I don't want any pay M'8S Silence," said Prissy, with trembling lips. "I am only glad to do wbat lean, because" Dim hesitated, and turned scarlet. "Because you're lu love with Tom," finished Miss Silence. "Ob, you needn't blush : I know all about it, aud If be chooses to break bis bead ag'in a stoue wall, I ain't agoin' to stop him." At tho end of three weeks Miss Si lence was able to be about again, and Prissy went home deolloing the twenty dollar bill offered her for her services. But she had not gone three hours before tbe hired man came from the farm with two large baskets, which be set down on Mrs. Baldwin's Kllcuen iioor. "Compliments of Miss Silence, and she sent these in place of the money," and was driving oil In the spring wagon before Prissy could recover sutllclenty from ber astonishment to ask him any nnpstlnns. The basket was full of good things of every sort, and there was a royal Christ mas dinner for the Baldwins the next day, much to the Joy or tue cuiiuren, who had contemplated ruefully dining on mush and potatoes. Prissy sent a note of thanks to Miss Silence by Tom, but she never received an answer. ... Time went by, and Tom's law busi ness Improved so much that he per suaded Prissy, against her better judg ment, to marry bim. Miss Silence did not grace tho Impor tant occasion with her presence. "I've no time to be gallvanliug off to weddings," was ber excuse when Tom reproached her for this slight. "She Is such a peculiar woman, we must not expect ber to act like other people; but she has a good heart In spite i uer queer ways," said Prissy, wnen rom tried to make excuses for his cous in s remissness. hlh ?r. greatest peculiarity lies in fcu.E,. kI.D? ,you' Wwy." aald Tom, Jt.DB h.la ,brlde SK cheek. "And i can't quite forgive her lack of taste." ocutweu witu tUeyounc oounle for more than a year. ThSf hoX! -J -vbu housekeeping In a modest oottage Tom was paying lor oy installments, ana were so nrudent that they managed to gather about tbem many little comforts which made their liome-pieasant. But fortune seldom smiles long at a time, as we all know, and reverses will come to every one. One bitter nlgbt in Ijecember, Tom's bouse caugui lire, auu was burned to tbe ground, nothing be ing saved except a fewclotbes belonging to Prissy and the baby. Of course, Mrs. Baldwiu opened ber house to tbem at once, tuouith it neces sitated much crowding. Prissy sug gested an appeal to Miss Silence, but Tom emphatically declined to make It. He was tar too proud to ask for the help which bo thought should have been earnestly offered. His law books aud papers had all been destroyed in tbe fire for he bad used a room lu tbe cot tage for an office and gettim; a living was rather up-bill work. Christmas was dreary enouch that year, and even Prissy's courage sank as she thought of tbe future. "Tom Lowey will have a ohance to show now what kind of stuff he's made of," said Miss Silence. "He burdened himself with a wife and baby, and he'll have to look out for 'em. I told him I'd never give him a dollar of my money, and I'll keep my word, no mutter what happens." Mies Silence bad thought lierseir proor against the weakness of falling ill; but In 31arcb she caugui a severe oolu, and pneumonia ensued. She felt she should never get well again, auu the doctor did not deceive ber with false hopes, but told her frankly that In all probability she would live but a few days. i want to see tbe lawyer at onoe, ir that's the case," she said. "I must make a new will." Mr. Simons, who had managed her business for years, came as soon as he received her message, and tho will was made. He had hardly left the house before Tom called. "I'm worse, Tom," said Miss Silence feebly ; "but I'm not afraid to go. Per haps I'm peculiar in that as in other mines. .Deacon jsouney ami me minis ter, Mr. Craig and .Mr. Darby liavo all been here a urgiu' of their several claims. I told each oue o' 'em I'd con sider tho matter." Will they be disappointed, Cousin bllenco." asKeu lorn. Poor fellow! he was In such a sore strait that be could not help a desire to have some small help from his cousin's board. Ho hardly dared hope she had left him a cent; and yet ho was her only relative. "liiat remains to be seen," was the unsatisfactory reply he received to his question. "But don't you cherish any hopes, lor l ain't ieit you a cent." A bitter smile curled Tom's lips, but ho made no reply. "I suppose you think me peculiar in not leavln' you my money, seein' you're the only kin I've got," went on Miss Silence; "but you've taken such precious care to convince me that you don't want It, that I've believed you and acted accord in." Tom went home and repeated the con versation to Prissy, who shed a few tears, but tried to cheer up her hus band's drooping spirits with hopes of more law business In tbe Spring. That night Miss Silence died ; and the whole town turned out to her funeral a few dai's later. "I expect Wolfboro' Academy will find itself able to erect a new building when Miss Silence's will is read," said old Mr. Craig. "She told me she'd consider the matter, and I know she was Im pressed with my arguments." "I rather think you are mistaken," said Squire Darby, "fori feel morally certain she's left her money to found a library." Tbe minister, who stood near, smiled to himself. He had not the slightest doubt that the debt which had hung over his church like a pall would now be lifted through Miss Silence's will. Tom did not want to go to the reading of the important document; but Prissy insisted, and so they went together, though neither of them looked very cheerful. Mr. Simons mado no objection to the presence of Squire Darby. Mr. Craig aud the minister chuckled as Deacon Bonney entered, with a pleasant smile for Tom, who well knew what sarcastic triumph lay beneath it. The will was dated a few days pre vious, and every penny In the bank, and the large farm, were left uncondi tionally to Prissy Lowey. Her hus band's name was not mentioned. Tom's face was n study, while Prissy almost fainted from this sudden relief to all her troubles. The faces of the other men present were studies, too. The deacon left the house without a word, and the Squire looked grimly at Mr. Craig. "She was a very peculiar woman," said the minister, wiping ills brow, on which the beaded drops of perspiration stood thickly. His anxiety about his church had been very great, you see. But Tom and Prissy could afford to forget their dead cousin's peculiarities, since she had kept her vow never to leave Tom a cent, and yet had-managed to make him comfortable for life. There was an immediate flitting to tbe com fortable farm-house; and Tom furnished a nice office in town, and drove in every morning In the spring wagon. Past troubles nnd cares were forgotten; tbe Baldwins were made more comfortable; and, considering all things, Slits Silence did more good with ber money than if she bad left It to lift a cburch debt. When you see a man take off his bat to you, It Is a sign that he respects you; but when he Is seen divesting himself of bis coat, you can make up your mind that he intends you shall respect him.

It Is to Oregon, and tbe Territories of Washington ami Idaho, what New York City Is to tbe State of New York, and beers tbesamerelaUon to tbatState and those Territories that Chicago does to Illi nois, St. Louis to Missouri, Philadelphia to Pennsylvania, and New Orleans to Louisiana. It has more territory tributary to It than any other elty In the United States, and will soon be numbered with the foremost cities In the Union. Even at this time the hammer and the sow can be beard In all parts of the city; tbe demand for bulldlnzs is to great that tbe In clement season of Winter does not check the onward march of Its growth. With tbe vast number of ships constantly plying between this and foreign ports, freighted with our con stantly Increasing agricultural products, and me numerous railroads now tributary to, or terminating at, this city, it will not require nmre than ten years to swell the population of our beautiful and growing city to HiCMM) souls. Having a larger territory than San Francisco to support It, we may conQdenlly assert that in less than a quarter of a century Portland will be the foremost city on the coast in point of wealth and population. we will here enumerate tbe many railroad enterprlsesalready Inaugurated. Some of them are constructed, and others In process of con struction, U making their termini at this city. THE XORTUEIUi PACIKIO Is building rapidly west from Duluth, on Lake Superior, and also from the Columbia River east, and will be completed nt an early day. luug. connecting us wuu an our sister states. TUB OHF.COX AND CAX.XFOIIXIA R. K. Terminates here, and Is having an Immente patronage. T1IK WESTERN OREOON R. R.. Formerly the Oreeon Central. Is doing a rood business. This road runs through the fertile country on the west side or the Willamette Hirer, aud Its southern terminus at present is at uorvHiiis, vi nines irom ivnianu. THE UTAH SORTIIEIUf R. R. Will be built through hundreds of miles of fer tile lands, the produce or which must be brought to this city for shipment. This road will connect with tbe Union I'actOc R. IC.thus securing two competing lines from the Atlantic to the Pacific, it Is now a settled fact that the I-ORTLAKP, DAI.I.E3 ASD SALT I.AKH R. K. Will be constructed at an earlyday. This will give us three trans-continental roads. NEW RAILROAD ECTEIU'KISES. A home company, with unlimited capital has been organized under tbe name of the Oreeon Hallway Co. to construct narrow-ranee roads from this city to the interior portions of tue state, ultimately connecting wnn me cen tral Pacific, with branches wherever induce ments may offer. This enterprise Is being pushed vigorously to completion, so that it may be lu readiness to move this Fall's crop. ARTICLES OF INCOIU-O RATION Have been tiled to construct a road from Battle Mountain, Nevada, In tbe direction of Oregon, to connect with the Oregon Railway Co's road and make Portland its terminus. This will give us direct communication with the richest silver mlnesln tbe world, and will make Port land one of the greatest railroad centers in tbe Union. We shall soon be connected by rail with the Northern Pacific It- It.; also with Chicago and the Atlantic cities. Thousands of immigrants are constantly arriving from all wins of the civilized world, and tbe millions of acres of agricultural lauds that He still unbroken by the plowshare, and awaiting the advent ot the sturdy fanner, point most conclusively to tbe tact mat an era or prosperity is aireauy uawn intr nivin this fnir vnnni? KtAte. When the Im migration has reached Its lull tide, and three millions of acres are undr cultivation, then will Oregon be known as the wealthiest state in ine union. -PORTLAND CITY HOMESTEAD. The land In this enterprise lies adlolnlne the city, and Is only from ten to filieen minutes' waiK irom tneturtiiouse,anu a less distance than that from one of the best public schools in tne city, it is uivmeu into ONE THOUSAND AND TWENTY-FOUR LOTS, Fifty by one hundred feet In size, with streets sixty leet wide. PBICC All lots will be sold for J109.00 each, payable In Installments of S&.0O per month, or the rmall sum of 10l cents per day. No Interest will be charged, and a good and sufficient Bond for Deed will oe given upon me payment oi tue upon receipt or last installment, both without expense to purchaser. TO PURCHASERS. Those not finding It convenient to make their payments when due, will be granted twenty days grace in which to make such payments, as it Is desirable that all shall have every pos sible opportunity to keep up their payments. Those desiring to make lull payment at tbe time the Bond Is Issued, will be entitled to a reduction ot S10.CO on each lot, or $5.U0 on each J5Q.0U paid in. As the KOAD TO WEALTH Is tbe most certain and rapid through real es tate Investmedts. this enterprise offers far more Inducements to the public than any other on tbe coast at this time, as the price and payments are within the reach of all. Do not let this chalice pass. Buy a lot, build, and make yourself Independent. Many of you wbo live In rented houses pay more every year for rent than would purchase a lot and build a roof over your head. You then would be Inde pendent ot exacting landlords, and In truth have a place to call "home." DON'T FORGET That not many years ago some of the best lots In San Francisco were sold for an ounce of gold dust, nnd that now they could not be bought lor SHXHNQ. Also, remember that In Chicago some of tbe best business lots were once traded lor a pair of old boots. How often Is the remark made by old residents oi Port land that once they could have bought lots for SUM that would not buy now. It Is not wise to "despise the day of small things." IT is TRUE, That or all real estate Investments the home stead plan Is tbe best and safest, as all who in vest are Interested In making tbe whole prop erty more valuable. To Illustrate: Suppose A builds a house on his lot. and B owns a lot ad Joining; B gets the benefitol A's Improvement, while A Is not Injured thereby. This philoso phy will apply to the entire property. We have donated a lot to each of the princi pal churches for church purposes. In addition to tbe above, two lots are set apart lor public school purposes. RAILROAD PURCHASE. The Overland, Oregon and California and tbe Western Railroad Companies have pbr chased all tbe lands from the east Ilneot the Homestead (which Is Ninth street) to the wa ter front fof their terminus, depots, machine shops, etc; nUe the main line of tbe Oregon Railway Company (Limited) will have lu ter minus near by. Thus the greatest railroad center on the Pacific Coast lays In close prox imity to these lots. This purchase has caused arise In all surrounding property of 100 per cent, making tbe lots In this Homestead from 75 to 100 per cent cheaper than any other real estate In Itortland. Inasmuch as tbls Home stead was advertised to bo sold for a stipulated price before the recent advance, unpleasant as it Is, we shall strictly adhere to our advertised contract with tbe public to sell these lots for !K0 each lor the next ninety days. The two hundred lots that were reserved for actual settlers are now alt sold, and tbe de mand to select lots being so greet, we have been compelled to place more lots on tbe marget from which tbe public may select for tbe next ninety days. This affords an oppor tunity for persons so desiring to purchase tbe most beautiful residence property. TO PARTIES DESIRI.NO TO PURCHASE. Tills property Is now selling very rapidly, and those wishing to buy will do well to cull or send Immediately for a lot or lots. All but the first installment must be paid at the Banking House of Ladd Jt Tllton.ln the city of Portland. PERSONS FROM A DISTANCE Desiring a lot, may forward fiW to the General Manager, and a Bond will be Immedi ately forwarded. Money may be forwarded by registered let ter, money order, or Wells, Fargo Jt Co's Ex press, at my risk. For further particulars, apply to J. M.
