city and begins to invi stik'ate.
He visits the mill where many
men are at work. He stands
around tin? mill property for a
d.ty or two and watches the
progress. He perhaps has some
thiiiK to sell and is endeavoring
to krct a line on some of the em
ployed of the mill ho that he can
make a sale to them. As he
watches he becomes more fa
miliar with the men and the
work. He enjoys seeing the
large timliers dump over the
d ick and make the water of the
Columbia Uiver splash-high in
the air. All this is interesting'
to him as he is sizing up the
situation w ith a view to doing
some business anions the men
whereby he can make some
money out of them. Hut aias.
the interested spectator hecomes

ingratiate himself into the con

he w ill Ih? in a better position to
do business with them at the

boards creak and the men fa

hnndlintr timber and trucks pret
out of the way of danger, while
the real estate man. entirely out
of his sphere, stands there until
the timber falls upon and breaks
his lejr. Now this man, who was
a spectator there and of his own
accord, who took hold of the
timliers when he was not asked
and when he had no business
tn nnd who did not know enoujfh
about the condition of handling
