a political one at all, but say it was

State. We were unable to obtain a copy

CI.OS1XO STOKES 3f THE FOl'RTII.
A petition aking for a general closing
of the places of the business in this city
on July 4th, was published in this paper
yesterday. It was pretty generally
signed by the business men, and we have
been asked to call attention to the same,
and comment thereon.
On takiog this paper we told you we
should talk plainly and squarely to the
people we do.
Th" fn;'l, day of July is a time set
:s.f ' v '.oi Americans to celebrate the
jt:-j. I-.- t epoch in their history, or the
i5;?ti)iT of the world.
To citizens of foreign birth, it should
be a day commemorating the enunciation
of principles which have resulted in al
lowing many of them to own land and to
become citizens of this country, in the
truest and ful'est sense.
This being the case, the man who for
a few paltry pennies, refuses to cloe up
his store or his office and give the boys a
chance at Independence day, is a mean
man and unworthy the name of Auieri
"Srick." on a Stump. In a pleasant
chat Saturday evening, Col. May eulo
gized a little on Greeley & Brown.
Stnck listened patient iy till he wa3
through, and then said, "Man, your'e
a good talker, wonderful good talker,
but talk never pulled a stump up yet."
A very handsome letter, inviting us
out to Weeping Water, on the Fourth,
has been received. We shall come,
health permitting. How much of a
speech we will make depends on our
"phelinks" and the roughness of the
roads out there.

My head's in a maie of cunfuaion.
My frame is we jry and weak;
My palso with fever is throbbing.
My tongue does object to speak.
With hands close clasped o'er my temple.
I sit in my easy chair;
And set my brain to recalling-
Tho thoughts that used to be thera.
Delightful, last night, was the music ;
It throbbed and pulsed through the hall ; ;
Thrilling each nerve with its sweetness.
With pleasure witching us all.
The room was so full of this rapture
This witching sweftnesi cf sound
Thy seemed lut mtssnres of music.
Their gracefulorm that went round.
The lights from the chandeliers glittered
And tell on those floating forms ; .
And hearts grew soft that were famed for
Withstanding many hard storms.
And hand, closely clasping each other.
Grew trtmulous with surprise.
As oicnin read the sweet secreU
That slept in each other's eyes.
And life, that gleamed red in the lamp-light.
Spoke words to nome list'ning car.
That tome one, wild with sweet gladness.
Lent cageriy, low. to hear.
And cheeks, of the hue of the roses.
Grew pale at some dowbting thought;
Grew white as two snowy lilies
By wandering wavelet caught. .
And eyes grew still brighter and brighter
And hearts more wildly did beat ;
As unto the witching sausio.
Swiftly sped round tho wee feet.
And snowy arms gleamed in the lainp-1 ght, m
And forms seemed floating in air.
While feet kept ti-ce with the music,
And joy laughed, mocking at care.
Ah. yes ! 'twas delightful, last evening t
Tho music, the guests, and all ;
To say the least, 'twas a charming.
Delightfully bon ton ball.
But now I'm sitting, this morniDg,
Reclining in eajy chair.
With hands close clasping my temples
To bind down the anguish there.
I think, "does it pay. this amusement?
Tnis wasting of "smile and strength ?
Is the pleasure worth the reward
Of anguish, .hat comes at length ?
I turn nsy hoad slowly, in anguish,
And frown as I answer "No!

To Kake Wax Elower.
Please say . to Mrs. S. B. Ward, Ma
rion Co., Oregon, that she will require
the following articles to commence wax
work : 2 lbs. white wax, J lb. hair wire.
bottle carmine, 1 ultramarine blue, 1
attic chrome yellow, 2 bottles chrome
green, io. 1, Domes enrome gieeu,
No 2, 1 bottle rose pink, 1 bottle royal
purpk-, 1. bottle scarlet powder. 1 bottle
balsam hr, 2 dozen sheets wnite wax.
This will do to begin with. Now have
a cleau tin dish and pour therein a quart
or two of water ; then put in about 1 lb.
of the white wax and let it boil ; when
cool enough, so the bubbles will not
form on top, it is ready to sheet, which
is done as follows : take half of a win
dow pane, 7x9, and, after having washed
it clean, dip into a dish containing weak
soap-suds; then dip imo the wax and
draw out steadily and plunge it into the
euds, when the fheet will readily come
off. Lay.it on a cloth or clean paper to
dry. Proceed in like manner until you
. ja a. . 1 It
hvfi enouffh ot the white : men aaa
enough of the green powder to . make a
hritfht color, and heat ana stir thor
oughly until the color is evenly distribu
ted ; then proceed as lor sneetmg wnne
wax. The other colors are rubbed into
the leaves after they are cut out, rubbing
light or heavy according to shade.
For natterns vou can use any natural
leaf, forming the creases in wax with the
thumb nail or a needle ; to put tne iiow
ers together or the leaves on to the stem,
hold in the hand until warm enough to
stick. If the sheeted wax is to be used
in Summer, put in a little balsam of fir
to make it hard. It lor Y inter, none
will be reauired.
You can make many flowers without a
teacher; but one te assist in the com
mencement, would be a great help :
though the most particular thing about
it is to e-et the wax sheeted. The ma
terials I have suggested can be procured
at anv drug store, and will cost from $3
to 4 50.
