11 ' l J JSf* | 'Xrchip-ALDW. BUTT CHAPTER Vli. A L. eutenant of Volunteers. • J l>li» hut g i west Ilium- liatelv 1 | alter leaving the rates, as I 8 1 ti ai intended doing, but re 1 inaim d within the state, hop ing vainly a> re' some word of for fiveness i on Miss Kileu In my .abaci moments 1 reviewed my visit to the I'm puts, and tile letter which she so condemned seemed to me to lie my least offense. Though I under stood her resentment and appreciated the position she had taken. 1 felt, how ever, that I had made a mistake in obeying her and now wished that 1 had remained at the I'ines and con fossoil everything to Bud. 1 believed ll.en, as ido now. that lie would have understood me belter than Miss IMlen had done and would have pleaded my cause for me. though 1 doubt whether lie or any one else at that time could have shaken V-r determination not to admit me to i.er friendship again. I would wake up each morning re solved to quit the state that day. but before noon 1 would change my mind, as I seemed utterly incapable of tear ing myself from the neighborhood of the Pines. I ever looked and longed for some change of feeling which might blunt the edge of my grief, but none came, and my love seemed to grow stronger each succeeding day. it was maddening to think that I had lost her, and what gave this sorrow a keener edge wns the knowledge that 1 had forever put it out of my power to be of any service to her or to lend as sistance to those she loved. I would become a prey at times to the keenest pangs of jealousy. I had no doubt that the squire would renew his suit and I feared that she might be led In her hitter resentment toward me to accept his hand in marriage. I wrote her several letters begging for her for giveness nnd If she could not grant ine that to try at least to understand the feelings which had prompted me to write the letters" which had been the means of separating us. I told her of the hopeless state of mind into which I had fallen nnd that I believed that iny life would be aimless unless she would touch the magic spring which would set nty blood aglow once more nnd arouse the dormant ambition with in me to accomplish something In the world. I wrote on and on. I exhausted my logic and meutal | towers to make ber understand. I reviewed nty visit to the Pines at length, frotu the moment I had met Colonel Tttrpin to the last Interview I had bad with her. My first mistake, I told her, had been In letting my Introduction to her and her mother as a relative of the Kentucky Palmers go unchallenged. I explained how I helleved myself to have been merely a bonrder and the almost fatal mistake I had made in speaking to the colonel on the subject Such hospitality I was unaceustonv ed to. nor do I now fully understand the prompting of that kind old heart when be inviti>d me to the Pines. 1 told ber of my life and of my work; bow 1 bad come into her section with the bitterest feelings against it My one ambition. I told ber, was to arouse a hostile sentiment in New England against the political party then in pow er In nearly all the southern states. I did not conceal from ber the satisfac tion I bad felt when this assignment bad been given me nor my disappoint ment when 1 learned afterward that I was not to touch on politics In my letters. 1 told ber of my resolution to leave the Pines on the day after I had arrived there, but bow that resolve melted as snow before the sun when I had seen her and looked Into her eyes; how step by step she bad led me to look upon life with a broader and a kindlier view and had brought me tlunlly to a full understanding of her section and ber people, aud how she had made me know for the first time what my father meant when be was. wont to say that all the two great sec tions of the country needed was to get acquainted. The letter which bad so offended her. I said, would lie the means <>t hrtngtug thousands of (icrsons to a pro|ier ap preciation of ber home laud and the southern character, just as the tacts embodied In It had cause*l me to change the opinions I had held ouce. I did not believe my offense was past forgiveness, and I begged her that in a spirit of fairness she would try to appreclnte the impulses of one whose Instincts seemed to be to write of things as they are and whose training had led him always to seek out those things to describe which were novel and of Interest I followed this letter with another, but wh h no better result I wearied the postal officials with ques tions and got thetu to go through the general delivery a half dozen times a day. I do not know bow It would have ended bad the tbongbt not come to me. na If by Inspiration, that I could at least be of some small service to her. yet keep my identity In the back ground. After waiting in Angusta ono more week In aminos bope that each day might bring a letter from her I took tbe train for Atlanta and there began a search for the holders of the mortgage on the Pines. With good references I presented myself at the office of one of the large trust compa nies and authorized Its agents to trace the mortgage and to secure It at any cost After weeks of incessant work we traced the holders somewhere In the southern part of the state, and an agent of the company was dispatched there to take up the mortgage. Tbe utmost caution was necessary to se cure the consent of Bud without esclt- Ing his suspicion. Tbe holders of the paper were Instructed to say that they had to sell and that they had found a company whose business It was to Jend money willing to accept It Noth ing was said about reducing the inter est It was not until the transfer had been accomplished that It was made known to Bud that the company had reduced the interest from C to 4 per cent I had followed the transaction with the keenest Interest, and tbe officials. They Understood the Necessity of Se crecy. who were In my confidence, became as interested almost as 1. 1 told them that under no circumstances were the Turplns to know anything about me; that-everything must be done through them. They understood the necessity of secrecy, as I told them that the ben eficiaries of this act would reject it and force a foreclosure had they any reason to suspect that the interest had been reduced through any desire to assist them in any way. Satisfied that I had done something for Miss Ellen. I determined to leave for the west. It was while going to take my train that a circumstance occurred that de layed my departure for several days more I was late and was hurrying through the depot when 1 ran fairly in the arms of Bud. 1 did not recognize him at lirst. and it was only when 1 stepped back with a conventional u|>ol ogy that I saw the strong outlines of his face and knew it to tie that of Miss Ellen's brother. It was only a momen tary glimpse I had of him. but be look ed older and more careworn, it seemed to me. He seemed preoccupied and did not recognize me. for. lowering my face. 1 hurried past him and reached the wulliug room I abandoned nil in tention of taking the train that day. for I ut once suspected that my set ret bad became known and that Bud had come to Atlanta with the determina tion of either having the trausfer re voked or else forcing me to accept the former interest on the mortgage. B.v a circuitous route I reached my hotel aud. sending for it messenger, dispatch ed a note at once to the company in forming Hie officials of the arrival of Mr. Turpi" The next day I learned that Bud. thinking the transaction somewhat queer, had come to Atlanta to see alsiiit It himself, ue.d I strongly be lieved that Miss Ellen had urged blm to it to satisfy herself that I was iu uo way connected with the heuetit which those /tt the Pines would derive from the reduction of the Interest Bud de manded to know to whom his family was indebted for this unlooked for piece of generosity. My agent told him that these mortgages had become very valuable and that his company had been authorized to secure as many of tbem us possible and to reduce the lu te re:.t oil them to 4 per cent. Satis tied that lite mutter was a -business transaction. Bud left for the i'iues again and. I had reason to lielieve. with a lighter heart la<st In the background aud congrat ulating itivseif on the success of uiy scheme. I wandered into the west The face of Ellen was ever In-fore me Night and day lite picture of Iter, clad In a simple ghtvhatti frock, her sleeves rolled up ami Iter imnd pointing In the direction of the md memorial bridge, was ever In my mind Several times I tried to resume my writing, but my pen seemed to drop from my tin rers ut else my mind refused to respoud to my will. In dejection of spirit nty bead would fall over ou nty arms, and 1 would sit for hours dreaming of the Pines and Mlsa Ellen. In my apathy I Journeyed to Japan, nnd for awhile life seemed brighter In that mosaic looking country; but. go where I wonld. there was ever recurring to my thoughts the picture of Miss Ellen, and my heart would swell and tears rush unbidden to my eyes is I remembered our parting. There was talk of war witn air outstretcnod nana, for t reit somehow that they had claims on me which the others did not possess. The Individual was lost ID that great, crowded camp, nnd those with whom I talked of the Turplns did not seem to know them. But I was destined to hear news of ray friends much soouer than I thought. 1 had been sent to division headquar ters one day with a message from my colonel. As I stepiwd under the awn lug of the tent I saw au officer In a major's uniform sitting at a table read ing some reports. The face was par tially In shadow, but I saw at once that it was Bud. How much lie knew I did nut know. I was eager to learn. He saw me be fore I s|»oke. and. not waiting, as I had done, he leaped from the table, scat tering the contents over the Hoor. and rushed to me with arms outstretched. Impulsively he threw one arm around my neck and with the other grasped my hand He saw how deep my feel Ing was and did not speak at once. "Bud." I asked finally, "how are all at the Pines?" It was the question which was most natural to my lips, for I had been hungering, yet dread ing. to hear news of them. "About the same. Nothing ever changes there." he said. "Your father and mother?" 1 asked. "Both are well, thank God!" ! "And Miss Ellen?" I ventured. , between rny country mi l Spain, but this Interested nie little. I seemed to have lost my sense of the proportion of things. Itesolved at last to take up tlie thread of my life again and begin anew, 1 started for the States. Almost the tirst thing I learned on reaching the l'ncifie slope was the fact that war had been declared The will of an In dignant people had swept aside polities and diplomacy and li.nl surged with such force about the nation's rulers that no one dared stand in its path. The martial spirit of my ancestors had never burned within me. for my tnind had always been s-t in other di rections, and my pursuit" were those of peace. Never hesitating for n mo ment. however. I started across the continent. Ily telegraph and letters I collected nty scattered Influences and. backed by my delegation in congress, asked the governor of my state for a commission. It was secured without much trouble, and I was mustered In the service as a tirst lieutenant of vol unteers in one of the regiments frotJ Massachusetts. (Will be concluded next week.i JOHN MILLER MURPHY TELLS of $75,000 in bonds, that had been au thorized by a special act of Congress, through the indomitable efforts of Judge O. B. McFadden, our then dele gate to Congress. This unusual course was largely aided by an informal vote of the people standing 504 votes for the proposed legislation and 143 against, and also the organization of the Thurston County Railroad Union, consisting of Marshall Rlinn, F. A. Hoffman, H. L. Chapman, C. P. Jud son, O. Shead, S. N. Cooper, S. I. Mc- Kenny, C. H .Hale, 0./ W. Biles. John Miller Murphy, T. F. McElroy, Geo. A. Barnes, S. D. Howe, S. W. Percival, Hazard Stevens, A. A. Phillips, Ira Ward and R. W. Rynearson, who had been authorized to take such meas ures as seemed proper. The bonds, when issued, were to be secured by an obligation 'of $200,00 that the road would be completed in one year from August 1, 1875. In con sequence of difficulty of floating the bonds and consequent delay, this time for completion was afterwards ex tended to Augst, 1878. The failure was very generally attributed to ad verse actions of the Northern Pacific railroad. With the track practically complet ed as an additional guaranty, there was found no difficulty in purchasing the iron for the track .engine, and equipment for the cars built a tTum water. The first religious services in Seattle were held by Bishop Demers, a Roman Catholis, in 1852. The first regular services In Olympla were by Rev. Ben jamin F. Close, a Methodist, in the spring of 1853. Rev. J. F. Devon, lo cated at Steilacoom- (then a rival of Olympla) the same season. The first church (Methodist) In Se attle, was built by Rev. Daniel Barley and called the "Brown" church from the color it was painted. Mrs. Blaine, the pastor's wife, and Misses Dorces Phillips and E. L. Clark taught the first schools in Seattle. In the early days when the head quarters of the customs district was at Olympla, such vessels as the Live Yankee and the Sarah Warren, en gaged in regular trips to the Sound, requently during the absence of wharves, laid high and dry on the shore line at the west end of First street, and discharged cargoes of mer chandise on the pebbly beach to be handled by wagons to the few stores or warehouses close by. In 1880 a federal census gave to Thurston county 3,270 population, 1,- 532 of whom fere accredited to Olym pia and 171 to Tumwater. Tacoma the same year, bad 1,098 and Seattle 3,533. About the same date the Sisters of Charity established Providence Acad emy here and during the preceding summer Union Academy, on the east side, had been built and schools es tablished therein. In the spring of 1873 the Carlton house was opened by G. W. Carlton and at once became the leading hotel. Ocosta by the Sea, In Chehaiis county, a western terminus of the Northern Pacific, is farther west than any other railroad terminus in the United States. The state of Washington was born November 11th, at 5:20 p. m., 1889, and the event was announced by tele gram at Olympla at 7:30 the same day. The length of this article precludes any reference to the interesting trip of the steamer Continental, which sailed from New York January 6, 1866, for Puget Sound, with 200 young women, under the superintendence and care of A. S Mercer of Seattle, to sup ply the dearth of the fair sex In this then territory. A true account of it may appear as a separate article. J. M. M. CUPITtL CREAMERY SHOWS LARGE INCREASE FOR 1312 Recently the secretary of state's de partment issued a pamphlet devoted to recommendations that more atten tion be paid to the dairying industry in Washington. In Thurston county this phase of farming has already gained a foothold and the output of milk, cream and butter is reacing an appreciable figure. One indication of this is the con si antly increasing business of the Cap ital City Creamery company on Colum bia street, managed by F. R. Klumb. Ihis concern has paid to dairymen within the past year for butterfat churned into butter $47,360. for butter fat for sweet cream and ice cream $6,- 000. while SB,BOO were paid for whole milk. From July 1, 1911, to July 1, 1912. the creamery turned out 144,703 pounds of butter.

While tho tune of "Everybody's Doin' II" was played on the piano a large audience In the Lyric moving picture theater on Fourth street filed out in excellent order when a film in the operator's booth caught fire about 9 o'clock Sunday evening and partially damaged the theater.
