She was accompanied by a friend, Mrs Mary Kdward* A large company of friend* and patients went with her as far as the King M station to say goodby, among them the convicted woman' husband and son Ihe party ar rived half an hour before train-time. An uninformed observer would have guessed that they were a jovial group come to wish "bon voyage" to one of their number who was going on a pleasant journey. Dr. Hazzard, dressed in a plain traveling suit and carrying a huge bouquet of pink carnations, gravely kissed each member of the party and patted with her gloved hand the cheeks of two small chil dren who had come with their mother and who sensed vaguely the tragedy hid behind smiling hps' and brave words of leave taking. Then I)r. Hazzard turned to her husband, a tall, soldierly man. He could not speak. The tears coursing down his cheeks, he took her in his arms and kissed her. She patted his arm "Don't worry, dear," was all she said. Only the son now was left. "As far as the train, mother, pleasel" he begged. Together they passed through the gate—mother and son and the friend who was to accompany the convicted woman to the prison gate. Once she turned and waved her bouquet to tht>se watch ing mutely from the other side of the station fcrtce, the stout, high bar* of which were so like a prison's At the train steps she paused. "My boy, my boy!" She kissed him, smiling steadily? then pushed him al most roughly from her "I'll take good <are of your mother," Mrs Kdward* promised.

RAIN TONIGHT AND SUNDAY; HKISK SOUTHEAST WINDS THE ONLY PAPER IN SEATTLE THA I DARES TO PRINT THE NEWS SEATTLE. WASH. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 27. 1913 You have a job. An idle man on the ground wants it. The railroads are trying to coax two more men to come from the East to "the land of opportunity," and bid for it. The Star does not believe in that kind of boosting. This is a fine country —for us. Thi» it part of the price the weit coast is paying for the alluring but lying adver tisements of big business to flood the man markets of California, Oregon and Wash ington—to bring down the price of muscle and sweat—as well as the enticements of big real estate corporations.
