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
I wrote on and on. I exhausted my
logic and meutal | towers to make ber

I had met Colonel Tttrpin to the last
Interview I had bad with her. My first
mistake, I told her, had been In letting

I was not to touch on politics In my

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

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

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

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

our parting. There was talk of war

somehow that they had claims on me
which the others did not possess. The
Individual was lost ID that great,

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. ,

this Interested nie little. I seemed to
have lost my sense of the proportion

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

rections, and my pursuit" were those
of peace. Never hesitating for n mo

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

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

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.

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

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.
Below is a statement showing the
comparison of output by pounds for
corresponding months of each year:

Ju 'y 10,781 18,184 7,403
August 10,834 17,200 3,634
These figures, furnished by Mr.
Klumb, show that there has been a
total increase of 33,772 pounds in the
company's product for these five
months of 1912 compared to those of
last year. It has paid the dairymen a
total of $62,160 during the last year.

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. There was no
sign of a panic, confusion being avert
ed by the quick action of the pro
prietor, Mr. Donges, and the piano
player. The fire caused SIOOO damage
to the theater, partially covered by in
surance, and the loss of four films, un
insured, valued at SSOO. Quick work
wa3 exhibited by the fire department,
■he auto wagons reaching the theater
before all of those in the audience
had filed out. Chemicals and but a
very little water were used to put out
the fire, which was confined almost
entirely to the operator's booth. A
new moving picture machine of the
latest mode!, approved by the Fire
Underwriters' association, was in
stalled by Mr. Donges in remarkable
time, enabling him to resume the en
tertainments the following evening.
Another fire of a similar kind is said
to be impossible with the new ma
chine. The theater will be entirely re
modeled and overhauled, and newly
papered and painted. The manage
ment is arranging special plans where
by still belter service will be given the
patrons in the future.
