A SIDE TRIP TO EVERETT We wanted to confer with several persons of prominence in Everett. It was necessary that we add a well known and popular box factory as a regular supporter and beneficiary of The Ranch; it was desirable that we secure an announcement regularly from one of the most successful bank ers of the Northwest; we wanted to talk with and interest a certain promi nent cream separator and gasoline en gine dealer, and we wanted to dis cuss a disagreement with a real es tate captain who has been doing busi ness with us as an advertiser —and beside all these missions, it is not only a duty but a decided pleasure and edi fication for us to visit that hustling, resourceful, newly-promoted first-class city every little while. So "The Old Man" and I got on the nine-thirty train last Tuesday evening, landed in Ever ett at eleven and spent all Wednes day on a round of pleasant calls. We had the rare good fortune to break into the new $4,000 residence of the box manufacturer and to find him a busy, genial, wide-awake indus trialist who readily agreed to our proposition and is now a regular so journer on The Ranch. The banner was a most interesting, clear-headed, discerning sort of man, one who will make a decidedly strong figure in the banking circles of West ern Washington one of these days, and who has already been singularly successful. The announcement of his rapidly-growing institution will appear regularly in The Ranch. We talketi enjoyably with the cream separator and gasoline engine man, and he was interested to the extent of a full year's contract, the extent of which will probably be largely in creased within the next three months. It was gratifying that the disagree ment with the captain of real estate was upon investigation found to be no disagreement at all and that every thing was lovely and congenial. And the City of Smokestacks was as bright, as cheery, as hospitable and as full of vitality and vigorous life as ever. The Everett Box Co. Established in July, 1905, the Ever ett Box Co. has won and i 3 constantly adding to its reputation for certain re sults and perfect workmanship. Its boxes are unexcelled and every one turned out is guaranteed to be up to the standard.

The pro prietors are Lettelier Bros., W. H. and C. G. Lettelier, and the father of these two successful manufacturers is also connected with the institution. W. H. Lettelier is the manager and he is a splendid example of the young American business man. He has spent fourteen years in the box factory busi- ness, most of the time in the famous factory of his uncle, the Los Angeles Box Factory, which is one of the larg est and finest institutions of the kind in the United States. Before coming to Everett, Mr. Lettelier had charge of the Capitol Box Co.'s plant at Tacoma for two years. The Everett establishment is a 18 model box factory, located In close proximity to the finest and largest bodies of box timber on the Pacific Coast. Last year the factory cut up 2,500,000 feet of lumber and made boxes of It that were shipped to Cali fornia and to all parts of Washington. The company buys its logs direct and has them specially sawed, giving this factory a decided advantage in the market. Each box is carefully inspect ed and must be faultless before it is al lowed to leave the factory. Nothing but cement-coated nails are used and only first-class timber. These facts account for the rapidly increasing busi ness of the factory as much as do the very low prices the company is able to quote on account of its economic advantages of location, equipment and management. First Scandia Bank. One of the most marked successes in banking circles in the Northwest is that of the First Scandia Bank of Ev erett, of which Mr. Christ Olson is cashier and general manager. This bank was established in July, 1906, has a paid-up capital of $50,000 and has 1,800 depositors with more than $130. --000 and carries a surplus of $1,000. This institution not only had the dis tinction of paying all savings deposits on call throughout the recent panic, but rejoiced in the unique triumph of gaining a considerable amount of busi ness in all that stressful period. Mr. Olson is an interesting charac ter, whose predominating traits are strict integrity, frankness, keen dis cernment and observation and logical judgment of a high order. Although he is a comparatively young man, my little conversation with him on Wed nesday convinced me that he is en dowed with business capacity and abil ity that have been unusually well de veloped by close study of men and af fairs. He is at home in the discussion of many subjects outside of the bank ing business and is quick to grasp the spirit and feeling of anything of hum an interest. It was not, therefore, a surprise to me when I learned that, particularly among the Scandinavians. Mr. Olson was a man of extraordinary favor and influence throughout Sno homlsh county. "I think that the campaign now un der way to clear up the logged-off lands of Western Washington is one of the best enterprises ever undertak en in the West," said Mr. Olson. "Of course I am an enthusiast —every good, constructive citizen should be — and I believe that Mr. Johnston's plan to have the countie3 do the work the same as they build roads and ditches and dikes, is excellent and practicable.
