A republican prer.i dent would not have ignored the river and harbor bill. Oregon probably had an in stinct of this sort when she didn t give Mr. Cleveland lie electoral vote. The evening Democrat in the above catches the Orcgonian napping. No question this is characteristic of some of our republican friends. Read the above and wie your weeping eyes, and sing the refrain in chorus with the Oregonian, to these word, "O con sistency thou art a jewel" but thou art never worn upon our brows. .S'.I IS ISA Til SCHOOL VOXt'EXTIOX Recently Sabbath Schools of this city took some active sleps toward organizing the Sab bath School work of this county. A gentle man who was appointed to confer with the Sec retary of the State Sabbath School Associ ation received the following reply which indi cates that Sabbath school workers all over the country should at once take the matter in hand and organize a county Sabbath School Convention. Philomath College, Oregon, March, 2j, 1SS7. Dear Sir: Your esteemed favor of recent date is just received and I am very glad that the good people of your city have taken such an interest in the Sabbath school work and have awakened such an enthusiasm with regard to a County Sabbath School Conven tion. Our County Sabbath School Associa tion has been in existence four years and in that lime the number of our schools have in creased from 15 to 20, our attendance has doubled, our collections for home expenditures have increased 100, ourcollections for mis sions have increased 200. Our work is bel ter and more souls are being saved . I here with enclose a pamphlet telling how to pro ceed to organize a Sabbath School Associa tion and have a County Convention, I sent for blanks for the statistics a long time ago but cot no reply. V.. Pay son Porter, Phila delphia International Statistical Secretary keeps the blanks and you would need about 50 cts, worth, a blanc for each Sabbath School in the county and two large ones for you to tabulate the statistics, onc,to keep and the other to send, to me. We find that the fore part of June is the best time for the Con vention, you might find some other time bet ter for you. I would like to be with you and if 1 can get away from my work I will attend your Convention. May the Lord prosper you in the good work. With great esteem. Henry Sheak. I'ruih SettlcHivut ItiiH.

From Umpqua head to Little bay A foam while fringe of breakers lay So beautiful to see to hear Their ceaseless music, grand, sublime, Had made you bend a listening ear, Had made you lift your hands and piay A silent breathless prayer to Dine, To stay awhile his hurrying feet, And let you listeu w hile you may To strains so stranL'e'.v wierd and swi-.-l.

The second rank is always shooting the first in the back. The vanguard is jiaulc to retreat back over the rear guard; our artilery is very often turned wrong end to and when it goes off with a bang, shoots the da) lights out of our own ranks. Our shot and shell arc of such material that they would splatter ail over the side of a barn, and we are liable to saber off our own ears when smiting al an enemy, we send out our spies, uiey give our nine racKei away and come whooping back on to us with the enemy at their heels. Our officers are liable to go away after strange gods. Our baggage trains arc often loaded with temperance tracts and empty whisky bottles, with our sutlers oft" on a jam. Wc pride ourselves on our sharp shooting, we fire away, we hit somewhere in the moral universe, then we will swear we hit exactly what we shot at, when in fact if the average sharp-shooter would aim at the north pole they would knock a hole in the Tropic of Cancer. We pride ourselves on our judgment of human nature when wc see a man that dont look like a lawyer, we say a lunatic, not much, he may be the assessor. When I look my natural way you say a fool, She, I'm thinking of things you never thought of.

Hardly any one I ever wins a victory but some one will want to contract to help him freight it heme. No one ever finds a new idea, but they will find an old man that w ill swear he knew it ever since it was a little thing. We go through this life swinging on to the tail ol the new idea's, with our golden hair fluttering in the w ind, and our coal tail standing out on a dead level; we run a long gauntlet between batteries of ridi cule and sarcasm, and come out at last with a bad reputation. If any one thinks they can run fast enough to keep out of a w ar, they arc mistaken; for love, lute or pri.fe, jealousy, envy, deceit and despair may overtake us, and should wc have the good fortune to escape the colic, the toothache, or the tax collector our muthcr-in-law will finally get us dowu and walk on us.
