E. A. Crnm , writing from Fairhavon ,
Washington , states that the average
rainfall there for n term of years is less
than 35 inches , while on the Columbia
river it runs from TO to 00 inches , and IE
therefore not as excessive as some people
believe. They had four inches of snow
a while ago , which laid a few days and
was gone. The temperature is very
even , no sudden changes and but little
wind , which comes in from the ocean
sometimes , but nothing bad. While
good laud is worth from $50 to $100 an
acre it is claimed that it produces more
than the land east and it requires but n
few acres to maintain a .family. They
mvo plenty of fruit , fish and fuel aud
consider it a fine place to live.
It was a jolly crowd of little spooke
that attended the juvenile masquerade
given by Prof. Chambers at Marquardt
: iall Saturday evening. The costumcf
worn by the little tots were handsome ,
varied aud unique , and afforded a great
amount of amusement not only to the
youngsters who participated but to the
large number of grown people who
were spectators. The crowning feature
of the evening was the cake walk , in
which four couples contested , the winners -
ners being Graham Humphrey nnd
Dorothy Rndat. A number of people
are urging that the masquerade bo re
peated , and it is possible that Prof ,
Chambers may conclude to do so ,
This evening a masquerade will be giver
for grown people.
F. L. Hamilton and Miss Nettie Lowe

those young people are members of Tin

sociation shows that romance may exisl
in very common places. Miss Lowe haf
lived in Norfolk the greater portion oi
her life and has been a trusted employe
of this office about three years. Mr ,
Hamilton is a first class printer , woi :
known in the oity , and ho has won t
nonpareil prize. They have the heartj
good wishes of the entire office force

full of "phat takes" with a total ab
soncoof "pi. " For the present thoj

An Old-Timer'8 Tale.
"Talking about farming , " said Joe
Tiffany , "reminds mo of my first offorti
in agriculture in Nebraska. It was ii
1809. I landed in Columbus with t
little money and lose knowledge of the
country. With my money I being ) ]

by young fellow whom I themght u
the time was a Swede ) , but 1 laturlouniei
ho was none other than our own Georg
Lehman. George had a farm iuiron
thu river , and lie wanted mo to bieuil
pralrio. I had never touched n plow
but when ho told mo ho would pay $ ,
an aura for breaking , 1 confessed that
WIIH an experienced breaker , am
promptly undertook the Job. I boiiKh
the finest now plow in town , hltohei
my niuhw to it and Hturled to work
After four limns of elespnatu cll'orl
was uniiblo to hold that plow in tin
ground long enough te > tuin a furrow i
rod tang , and was on the point of giving
np in disgust , when I was accosted by i
kindly gentleman whom I nftorwmdi
rocogni/ed as Charley ICelnko. I toll
him my troubles , and ho nskeid to lool
nt my glow. It was n beauty , and . '
was proud of it. Charley looked at the
plow , and then at me and then Iu
laughed , I was not in a laughing hu
mor , and 1 demanded the CUUHO of hli
mirth. In the best of good nature he
turned the plow out oftho ground am
showed mo that 1 had been trying tc
break prairie ) with a plow lay that had
never boon sharpened. I took the plow
to the nhop , had it ftlmrponoel , and in
seven days broke twenty acicsof prairie ,
and earned an even $100. When I see
men trying to preach or practice law ,
without having first acquired n propei
education , I often think of my own ef
forts in breaking prairie without first
Imving sharpened my plow. " Colum

These- equinoctial storms are likely to
continue until after spring is ushered in ,
which will take place , according to the

morning. Why the sun should make
uch a disturbance in crossing the eqna-

teed by the ordinary people , but the

does and the people will concede that
his time of year is usually marked by

will undoubtedly bo storms but those in
