Ia the early autumn of Uie year 1839,
aliont half an hour of svmBet, I drew
roin in front of a large double log house,
01 the very snmmit of the Blue Binge
mountains of Eastern Kentucky-.
The place waa evidently kejit as a tar
em, at leaxt no a sign proclaimed, and
here I determined to demand accommo
dations for myself and servant Bose, a
d;irk skinned body guard, Bose and I
h.id lieon playmates in childhood and
Kvyhood, and I nood hardly say that the
fr.Uhful. fellow was attached to mo as I
a us to hiuw and on more than one occa
im ho lad shown his devotion. - .
Tltwe had been a "shooting match" at
te Mountain House that day, and, as I
demounted, I saw through the open win
tow of the bar room a noisy, drunken,
tad evidently quarrelsome set of back
Voodsmen, each of wnom was swearing
l.y all possible and impossible oaths that
ie was not only the best shot, but that
.o could ont-nght, out-jump, and ont
Vrestle, run faster, jump higher, dive
deeper and come up dryer than any
other man "on the mountain."
"I say, Mars Ralph," said Bose, in a
low tone, as I handed him my bridle
j eiu. "I don't like the looks of dem in
i&r. S'pose wo goes up to the next
house; tain't for."
"Nonsense, Bose,' I replied; "these
fellows are ouly on a litUe spree over
their shooting. We have nothing to do
with them nor they with us. Take the
horses round to the stables end see to
them yourself. You know they've had a
liard dav of it."
And throwing my saddle-bags over my
r.houldors, I walked up the narrow path
to the house.
I found, as I have intimated, the bar
room filled with a noisy, turbulent
i-rowd, who one and all stared at me
without speaking as I went up to the bar
and inquired if I and my servant could
have accommodations for the night.
Receiving an affirmative reply from
the landlord, a little, red headed, cadav
erous looking specimen of the "clay
eater," I desired to be at once shown to
iny room, whither I went; but not until I
had been compelled to decline a score of
requests to "take a drink," much to the
ilisimst of the stalwart bacchanalians.
The room in which I was shown was at
the far end of a long two-story structure,
evidently but recently added on to the
main building. which was intersected at
right angles. A gallery extended along
the front, by means of which the rooms
were reached. -..
I found my apartment to be large and
comparatively well furnished, there be
ing, besides the bed, a comfortable cot.
half a dozen "splint bottomed" chairs, a
heavy clothes press, and a bureau with a
There were two windows, one along
Bide the door, and tl.e other in the oppo
site end of the room.
The first mentioned door was heavily
barred, with stout oak strips, a protec
tion, I presnme, against intrusion from
the porch, while across the latter door
was drawn a heavy woolen curtain.
In the course of half an hour . Bose
entered and announced that the horses
had been properly attended to, and a few
minutes later a bright faced mulatto girl
summoned us to supper.
Supper over. I returned "to my room
first requesting to bo aroused for an
earlv breakfast, as I desired to be on the
road by sunrise. ;. ',-.:'
Thoroughly wearied -with my day's
ride, I at once began preparations for re
tiring, and bad drawn off ono boot, when
JJose came in rather nastily, looking f ur
tively over his shoulder, and then cau'
tiously closing and locking the door.
"Mars Kalph, dar's crwine to be trou
ble in dis house afore morning," he said.
And I saw in a moment that something
had occurred to pset the faithful lei
low's equilibrium. - ' .
"Why, Bose, what is it? "What do you
mean?" I asked, barely restraining a
' smile.
"Itole you, Mars Ralph, we'd better
trabbel furder," was the rather mysteri
ous reply.
"You see that yellar gal dere tole me

-"'sBy close questioning I elicited the fact
that-tiw- firl had really warned him that
four men whom I had noticed together
were a desperate set of villains, and
probably bad designs upon our prop
erty, if not our lives.
The girl had seen two of them at the
stable while I was at supper, and by
cautiously creeping into a stall, next the
one in which they stood, had heard
enough to convince her that they meant
mischief. Subsequently to this, she
also saw the landlord in close confab
with the entire party, ami from his ac
tions judged that he was urging the men
to their nefarious work.
"I tell you, Mars Ralph, dem white
trash ain't arter no good now you hear
me," persisted Bose.
I had begun to think so myself, but
what was to be done ? The situation was
full of embarrassment, and I felt that
nothing could be done save to wait and
watch, and, by being on the alert, defeat
- their plans by a determined resistance.
I found that from the barred window,
in which there was a broken pane of
glass, a good view of the stables could
be had.
Then the other window. ,
I crossed the room, drew aside the
heavy curtain, and, raising the sash,
looked out.
A single glance was sufficient to cause
me a thrill of surprise, and I gave a low
exclamation that instantly brought Bose
to my side. -
Far below I could see tho faint glim
mer of water, the low murmer of which
came indistinctly up from the depths,
while on a level with what should have
been the ground, I dimly saw the waving
tree-tops, as they gently swayed before
the fresh night breeze, and knew that
the window overlooked a chasm, the
soundings of which I could only guess at.
In other words, the house, or that por
tion of it, was built upon the very verge
ef the cliff, the solid rock forming a
foundation more lasting than any that
could be made by the bands of man. ,
I leaned far out, and saw that there
was not an inch of space left between
the heavy log onTriiica the structure
rested and the edge of the precipice; and
then I turned away with the full convic
tion that if necessary escape must be
made in that direction lhere was noth
ing especially strange in this; there
were many houses so constructed I bad
seen one or two myselfand yet when I
drew back into the room and saw the
look in Bose's dusky face, I felt that
danger quick and deadly was hovering
in the air.
Without speaking I, went to my saddle
bags and got out my jmtols--a superb
pair of long double rifles, that I knew to
be accurate anywhere nnywhere under1
half a hundred yards.
"Darldem's what I like to see!" ex
claimed Bose, as he dived down into his
bag and fished an old horse pistol that
belonged to my grandfather, and which
I knew was loaded to the muzzle with
No. 1 buckshot. It was a 'terrible
weapon at close quarters. . ,
Tho stables in which our horses were
feeding could be watched, and by events
transpiring in that locality we would
shape out actions. I found the door
could be locked from the inside, and, in
addition to this, I improvised a bar by
means of a chair leg wrenched off and
thrust through a heavy iron staple that
had been; driven into the wall. Its
fellow on the opposite side was missing.
We then lifted the clothes press before
the window, leaving just room enough
on one side to clearly see, and, if neces
sary, fire through; dragged the bureau
against the door with as little noise as
possible, and felt that everything that
was possible had been done.
A deathlike stillness reigned over the
place, broken only by the voice of the
colored girl singing as she crossed the
stable yard.
I had fallen into a half doze, seated in
a chair near the window facing the sta
bles, where Bose was on - the watch,
when suddenly I felt a slight touch upon
my arm, and the voioe of the faithful
sentinel in my car. .- "
"Wake up, Mars Ralph; dey's foolia
1out the stable doo' arter de horses,
shuah," brought me wide awake to my
Cautiously peeping out, I saw at a
glance that Bose was right in his conjec
ture -there -were two of them -one
standing out in , the clear moonlight,
evidently watching my window, while
the other and I fancied it was the land
lordwas in the shadow near the door,
which at that moment slowly swung
open. ' ' :" '"
As the man disappeared within the
building, a low, keen whistle cut the
air. and at the same instant l beard the
knob of my door cautiously tried.

Noiselessly drawing aside the curtain.
I rested the muzzle of my pistol on the
sash where the light had been broken
away, and drew a bead on the tallest of
the two men who stood boidiag tne taree
horses, out in the bright moonlight. :
The sharp crack of the weapon was in
stantly followed by a yell of pain, and I
saw the ruffian reel backward and meas-
uro his length upon the earth, and then
from the main building there rang out:
"Murder! murder! Uh. help:

mind. There were three horses out in

A deafening report followed, and
again a shrill cry of mortal anguish
told me that the shot had not been

"Sabe us! how it do kick!" exclaimed
Bose under his breath.
The blow had fallen like an unexpect
ed thunderbolt upon fhe bandits, and a
moment later we heard their retreating
footsteps down the corridor.
"Dar'U be more of 'tm heah 'fore long,
Mars Ralph," said Bose, with an ominous
shake of the head. "I 'spect deseb'long
to a band, and if dey comes and we still

This view of the case was new to me;
but I felt the force of it. I know that
such bands do exist id these mountains,
Stunned for a moment, I turned round
and stared hopelessly at Bose; but he,
brave fellow that he was, never lost his
head for an instant.
"Bound to leab here, Mars Ralph," he
said, quite confidently. "An dar ain't no

watch again, hoping to get a shot at the

went to work. I heard him fussing
around the bed for some time, but never
looked to see what he was after until he
spoke. ' '

say, and in an instant 1 caught his mean

In the meanwhile, the snence without
had been broken once. A shrill, keen
whistle, such as we had heard before,
was given by the man on the watch, and
replied to by some one seemingly a little
way off. Then I heard footsteps son,
catlike ones on the verandah outside,
showing that robbers were on the alert
at all points.
At length Bose announced the "lad
der ready. It was again lowered from
the window, and the end was held and
made fast to the bed we had dragged
over for the purpose.
"Now den, Mas'r Ralph, I'll go down
fust, and sem if 'um strong 'nough to
bar us.
And he was half way out of the win
dow before I could speak.
"No, Bose, you shall not," I answered
hrinly, drawing him back into tbe room.
"iou must :
The words were lost in the din of a
furious and totally unexpected attack
upon tbe door.
The dull heavy strokes of the ax were
intermingled with the sharp quick clat
ter of hatchets as they cut away the bar
rier, and once in a while I could hear
deep oaths as though they had been ren
dered doubly savage by our resistance,
"Here, Bose. your pistol! Quick! J
whispered, and the heavy charge went
crashing through, followed by shrieks
and curses of pain and rage.
"Now, then, out with you ! I had the
place. I said, rushing back to the win
dow. "Come, Bose, hurry, or all will
be lost."
The brave fellow now wished to insist
on my going first; but he saw that time
was wasting and glided down the rope,
gradually disappearing in the shadows
The fall of one of their number had
caused only a momentary lull, and I
heard them renew the attack with ten
fold fury. :
I dare not fire again, for I felt that
every bullet would be needed when
affairs were more pressing.
It seemed an age before I felt the sig
nal from below that the rope was ready
for me; but it came, and I let myself
down, pausing an instant, as my eyes
gained a level with the sul, to take a last
look into the room.
As I did so the door gave way, and the
bloodthirsty demons poured over the

discover the mode of escape, and either

thus protected, did not suffer as much as
might have been expected.
With my eyes fixed upon the window.
I slid rapidly down, and struck the earth
with a jar that wrenched every bone in
my body.
- Quick as lightning I was seized by
Hose, dragged some paces on one side,
and close against the face of the cliff.
Not a second too soon, for down came
a volley, tearing up tbe earth about the
foot of the rope, where a moment before
I had stood.
"Thunder, they will escape! After
them, down the rope!" yelled a voice,
almost inarticulate with rage.
And I saw a dark form swing out and
begin the descent.
"Now, Mars Ralph," whispered Bose.
significantly, ; and with a quick aim I
fired at the swaying figure.
' - Without a sound the man released his
hold and came down like a lump of lead,
&&ot through the brain.
Another had started in hot haste, and
was more than half out of the window,
when suddenly the scene above was bril
liantly lit up by the glare of a torch.
Again the warning voice of the watch
ful black called my attention to the
figure now struggling desperately to re
gain the room, and, as before, I threw
up my pistol, and, covering the exposed
side, drew the trigger.
With a convulsive effort the wretch,
springing far out into the empty void,
turned once over, and came down with a
rushing sound upon the ragged rocks
that lay at the foot of the precipice.
A single look to see that the window
was clear -we knew there could be no
path leading down for a long distance
either way, or they never would have
attempted the rope and we plunged
headlong into the dense forest that
clothed the mountain side.
We got clear, it is true, but with the
loss of our animals and baggage; for the 1
next day, when we returned with a party
of regulators, we found the place a
heap of smouldering aBb.es, and no liv

Star Snoweri.
Meteoric astronomy now takes rank as
a distinctive branch of astronomical sci
ence. Not forty years have elapsed since
it was ascertained that star showers are
periodical. Even then and for many
years after it was supposed there were but
two, culled the August and November
showers. JNow, uot less man iuu nave
been detected, and constantly others are
being added to the list. The accounts of
the showers that occurred in ancient
times came down to us clothed such in ex
travagant language that, until the great
star shower of November 13,1833, astrono
mers were loath to believe them. Now
they know not only the cause, but are
ahla to Dredict their reoccurrence with
almost as much exactness as eclipses, and
the popular mind observes these displays
wun equanimity xuu uuuguii iublcbu ui
fear and alarm, or thinking the day of
judgment has come. - Suieni has dis
armed not only mem out eclipses anu
comets as well, of their terrors.
All know what a shoot inz star looks
like, but no living man can tell what it
really is, for notone hasever been known
to reach the earth. Those heavy, stony
and still more weighty metallic masses,
called meteorlites, meteoric stones, etc.,
which occasionally fall to the eartn irom
the celestial regions, which tbe one that
recently fell in Iowa was a remarkable
example.belong to another class of objects
entirely, tbe origin or wnicn man knows
A shooting star is only visible while
undergoing the process of combustion,
which lasts from one to three seconds,
seldom longer. Previous to this they ex
ist in the dark, probably solid condition,
not much if any larger than peas, too
small to be seen in daylight and in the
night, being in tbe earth's shadow, are

while being burned they are visible to us,
as tney shine oy their own light.
fcacu meteoroid moves in an orbid. re
volving around the son with as much
regularity as the larger planets. In fact.
each is in every sense of the word a
planet, obeying strictly the laws ot gravi
tation and planetary motion. All spaee
is filled with them ; they are as numerous
as the sand. : The earth and they in their
journey around the sun encounter each
other: the eartn. ov its attraction, araws
them toward it, but to reach it they must
pass through the atmosphere, which one
is not liable to do. Only meteoric Btones
are able to reach the earth, and they ha e
their surfiices blackened, and converted
to scoria by their terrible heat engender
ed by the friction with the atmosphere

velocities probably equal to the earth's,
nearly 19 miles a second. One moving
retrograde, therefore (from east to west),
would plunge into the atmosphere at a
relative velocity of 38 miles a second,
and if allowance be made for accelerated
motion, caused by the earth's attraction,
probably double that, or 75 miles a
second. Tbe encounter is fearful, and but
for the atmosphere, which acts as a
cushion, the effect would be disastrous,
for not less than 800,000 would rain upon
unon the earth everv dav.
The source from which these meteoroids
conic is comets, especially from their tails.
1 lie tail or the great comet in 1811 was
lo0.000.000 in length and 15.000.000 in
diameter.- It is improbable in the highest
degree that the comet could gather its
tail to llseil again. it is lett behind,
forming ft ring, which in tune may be
come continuous. Another comet comes
and it does the same, and during the ages
which are past this process has been go
ing on till the inter-planetary spaces are
filled with not only meteoroids, but some
thing still more marvelous.
In about three thousand years that
great comet will return again and repeat
tbe process, forming part of another ring,
or. adding to the first, depending on cir
cumstances which need not be considered
here. Whenever the earth, in its usual
i'ourrvy, passes through any ring made
y some comet, no man knews when we
get a star shower. Tbe four most notable
ones in our times take place at the fol
lowing dates, namely, on the mornings of
August lltb and November 14th, and the
eve'i.ngs of November 24th and 27th. The
last two are caused by tbe earth passing
through tbe track of meteoroids left be
hind by the fragments of Bida's coment,
which divided in two parts in 1846. In
this way meteoric rings are formed, of
which the solar system is tilled, but none
are visible to us, except those the earth
posses through. By some such process
was the August ring formed, which tbe
earth passed diagonally through on the
evening of the 10th and morning of the
14th of the present month.
The first August shower mentioned in
history occurred on July 2otli, A, V., bit
and has appeared with unfailing regu
larity down to our own time, except a
slight break of 83 years between 841 and
924, and another and much greater one of
310 years between 933 and 1243, owing
probably to breaks in the ring, or which
Is more likely, to a failure to record them.
The period of the above comet is about
123 years, and it will therefore make its
next appearance about the year lroo.
The eccentricity of the August ring is
very great, its perihilion distance being
equal to that of the earth, and its aphelion
distance being far beyond the orbit of
Neptune, making the circumference of
the ring more than ii,uuu,uuu;uuu miles,
and as the earth is ten days in passing
through it, its thickness must be at least
10,000,000 miles. Ur. Lewi Smjl in Koch

81XTT Years is Prison. Mary Valen

' King James I.
Tbe first half of the seventeenth
century was an age of learned men
in England, and at the bond of them
it may be appropriate to mention
King James 1. Ho had received in
early life tho ; best possible instruc
tion from Buchanan and others., lie

produced by a physical defect, a
tongue too large lor his mouth, and
a mind in which all depths that that
there coulu ever be mast be made
artificially. Good workmen dug and
shaped; tho boy was good-tempered,
picked up some shrewdness, lived a
creditable life, had respect for knowl
edge, and a good appetite for it,
though bad digestion. He had a
pleasant type of it before him in
cheery, impressible Goo Buchanan;

Socrates to take ofleuse, tamiliar.
with Latin as with bis native tongue,
full of anecdote and good talk, fa
miliar also with languages and peo
ple round about, and liking Scotland
all the better for experience in other
lands. But tor James, tbe horizon
did not widonas be climbed the hill
of knowledge, his heart did not swell
as he rose to higher sonse of har
mony and beauty; he hammered at
the big lumps about him, and was
proud ot being bo tar up. In 1585,
when his age was only nineteen, be
published at Edinburg "The Easayes
of a Prentise in the Divine iArt of
Poesie." In the preliminary sonnets
ot compliment, tbe Muses, though va
rious courtly representations, sought
"Tell how he doeth in tender years es
Above his age with skill our arts to
Tell how he doeth with gratitude repay
Ihe crowns he won lor his deserved
Tell how of Jove, of Mars, but more of
The glorie of grace he hath proclaimed
The "Essayes" opened with twelve
sonnets of invocation to tho gods,
namely: Jove, Apollo, each of the
four seasons, Neptune, Tritons and
their km, Plato, Mars, Mercury, and
finally, tor the twelfth sonnet
"In short, you all forenamed gods I

After these twelve sonnets of in
vocation the King placed a transla
tion of "The Heavenly Mase ot Du
Bartas: then a dim allegory, in
Chaucer's stanza, "Ano Metaphoricall
Invention of a Tragedie called Phoe

lines, arranged first as shaped verse,
in the form of a lozenge upon a little
pedestal, then as a compound acros
tic. Then followed a short bit of
translation out of the "Fifth Book of
Lucan;" and then, lastly, "Ane Short
Treatise, containing some Houlis and
Cautelis to be observit and eschewit
in Scottis Poesie." In 1591, was
published "His Majesties Poeticall

Tbe Indian Temple at Amrltsar.
As to the golden temple at Amritsar,
called Hari-mandir, or sometimes Dnr
bar Sahib, it may be said to rank next to
the Tai at Agra as one of the most strik
ing sights of India. To form an idea of
the unique spectacle presented by this
- sacrea locality one must picture to one'
self a large square sheet of water, bor
dered by a marble pavement, in the cen

Around the margin of this artificial lake
are clustered numerous fine mansions,
most of them once the nronertv of Sikh
chiefs, who assembled here every year
and spent vast sums on the endowment
of the central shrine. One of the bouses

I enjoyed a grand panoramic view of the

sights seen at intervals during life which
hx themselves indelibly on tbe memory.
In the center of tbe water rises the beau
tiful temple with its gilded dome and
cupolas, approached by a marble cause
way, and quite unlike any other place of
worship to be seen throughout India. In
structure and appearance it is a kind of
compromise between a Hindoo temple
and a Mohammedan mosqne, reminding
one' of the attempted compromise be
tween Hindooism and Islam, which was
once a favorite idea with both Kabir and
In point of mere size the shrine is not
imposing, but its proportions strike one
as nearly perfect. All the lower part is
of marble, inlaid, like the Taj, with
precious stones, and here and there over
laid with gold and silver. The principal
entrance facing the causeway looks to
ward the north. The interior is even
more gorgeous than the exterior. On
the ground floor is a well proportioned
vaulted hall, its richly gilded ceiling or
namented with an indefinite number of
small mirrors, and its walls decorated
with inlaid work of various designs.
flowers, birds and elephants. Four short
passages, entered by carved silver doors,
one on each of its four sides, leads to
this vaulted chamber, giving it a shape
not unlike that of a Greek cross. All
around on the outside is a narrow com
dor. In the interior, opposite the princi
pal entrance, sits the presiding Guru -his
legs folded under him on the bare
ground, with the open Granth before him

from images, and is dedicated to the one

In non of her enterprise" does Portland
snow ber inuremacv over otber cities on tbe
northwest coast more tha a in ber wholesale

made mare rapid strides than in furnitura.
Among the firms which have kDt Dice with
tbe growth of Portland, and which to day
stand high in tbe estimation of tbeir fel
low merchants, and their customers, is the
wen Known orm ot
Mr. Sbindler. the senior member, com
meuced business in this city in 1857 as a
member of tbe firm of Hurgren & Sbindler,
who started a furniture establishment at the
corner of First and Salmon ttreeta. Thev con
tinned in business until 1873, when tbe great
fire in August of that year reduced th eir fac
tory to aahea. Tiie same year, through the
exertions of Mr. Sbindler the Oregon Furni
ture Manufacturing Company was estab
lished, he remaining vice-president and prin
cipal manager lor tnree ana one nan years.
In Sep'ember, 1877. Mr. Sbindler entered into
partnership with Mr F. 8. Chadbourne, one
of tbe largest furniture mancfectarrra and
dealers in San Francisco, and began business
on a grand scale at No. 1GG First street, be
tween Morrison and YambilL Tbe junior
member, Mr. f . o. unadbonrne, is the princi
pal partner of F. S. Cnadbourne Co., of San
Francisco, and is a moat thorough merchant.
Mr. Shindler's reputation for integrity, abili
ty and energy is so well known here as to re
quire do mention at our hands.
Mr. F. S. Chadbourne is here on a business
and pleasure trip, aud Wednesday
was planned to give tbe party an opportuni
ty to see and admire tbe scenery along the
oanas or me river and to visit the factory.
At 10 o'clock A. M.. Messrs. G. Sbindler. V.
8. Chadbourr e, D. N. Walter of 8an Francis
co, and an Oseookiah reporter, started up tbe
river on tbe east side in a baror.che, behind
a splendid team of bavs. After arrivinr at
Willsbnrg, four miles north of this city, the
party augniea aoa proceeded to inspect the
factory. The main building is two and a
half stories high, 60x60 feet, and has an L
4OX0U feet. It was purchased by the firm last
February. There is an excellent water
power and tbe supply is ample,
even at a low stage of the creek,
to turn all the machinery. Tbe fac
tory is fitted with tbe very latest improved
lathes, handsaws, planers, etc. , The firm en
deavors as much as p-sible to encourage
home productions, by using Oregon lumbers.
Tbe factory, iu which a large number of men
are employed, is devoted especially to mak
ing ash and maple chamber suites, counting
house and school furniture, chain and tables.
They were finishing yesterday, the remain
der of six huodred desks for tbe new
Park school building. One hundred feet

house and all lure ber is thoroughly seasoned

Messrs. 8 &C. are tuakimr srraorementa tn
coDstrutt a switch to connect tbe factory with
tbe O. A C. E. R., and to erect a telephone to
connect with tbeir First street store. Addi
tions to their buildings and machinery are in
contemplation for next season.
After inspecting the factory, the party
sharpened tbeir appetites by a brisk walk
about the grounds, and then did ample justice
to a finely prepared lunch. They then drove
up to Milwaukie, crossed to tbe west side and
returned by the White TIoum road.' The'
topped at the brick warehouse, northeast
corner of Front and Main streets. The base
ment, 2518O feet, is corrpletely filled with
chairs and furniture, in "knock down" stat),
ready for shipment to distant points where
freights are heavy. Tbe ground floor is also
used for storing duplicate furniture and for
the upholstering department. The party then
drove to tbeir
Nos. 166 First and 167 Front streets, through
which our reporter wss shown by the cotir
tey of Mr. Sbindhr. The Fiit street de

tbe pu: chaser may t elect. Overhead and
along the walls, h.tng an immense number
of cbaiia, from low priced walnut to the
finest library chair. Passing through a sho t
ball into tbe second stjry of the Front street
department, we came upon tbe fiuer grades
of furnitnre for parlor, drawing room and li
brary. Tbe center of ihe room is filled with
damask sets, one of drab and crimson, and
one of drab and delicate blue being particu
larly attractive. About tbe walls is an array
of fine chifibnnieres, book cases, stationery
and revolving secretaries, and wardiobes
with plain and with mirrored doors.
Adjoining the second story on the south,
in the rooms above D. W. Prentice t Go., is
tbe department devoted to every description
of office desks and counting house furniture,
of which tbe firm makes specialties. In the
rear of tbls department, is an additional up
holstering room.
Excellence of workmanship, and perfect
finish are characteristic of all tbe goods
throughout the ware rooms, aud their con
venient, tasteful arrangement is truly admir
able. Messrs. Sbindler & Chadbourne have just
furnished E. Sanx's hotel at Lewisioo and
secured tbe contract for all the interior fittings
of Tbos. Smith's new hotel at Tbe Dalles,
now in process of erectioa. Being both man
ufacturers and importers tbeir facilities are
such that they can secure to purchasers every
possible advantage, and all o-dera entrusted
to tbeir care receive tbe same attention as
though the purchaser were there in person.
Satisfaction U guaranteed in all cases.
It is a universal fact, and conceded to by
their competitors that this firm have tbe fin
est wareroonis and most elegant stock of
goods north of San Francisco, and there only
surpassed in a few Instances. To our readers
we would suggest a visit to this mammoth es
tablishment, as we are firmly convinced that
it will be a great saving ot time and money,
and a second visit is sure to follow.
Helmutthomxit. Of late years no de
partment of natural history has attract
ed more attention than that of the study
of internal parasites in man and other
animals. To the great multitude and
variety of creatures thus found, assooiab
ed by one common habit of life, have
zoologists given the general name of Hel
minths, which are a peculiar fauna des
tined at some time in their lives to occu
py an equally peculiar territory. That
territory is the wide-Rpread domain of
the interior of living animal bodies to
which, alas, poor humanity forms no ex
ception. It is unpleasant to think that
we may at any time become a prey to these
dangerous and mischievous depredators.
We were lead to these reflections by a
recent visit to Dr. Van Denberg's offioe,
when he had just completed the expul
sion of C70 worms from Mr. Lehman,
who stated that he had suffered for 12
years. They were all small, about one
and a half inches in length, excepting
one a nondescript about three inches
long, an attrocious rascal of forbidding
appearance. Dr. van Den berg is tbe
