WHAT THE WIND SAID
Tbe dry cornstalks stood eloae to the
tnve on three side of tba little house; on
the fourth wm an open spaoe by oourtosy
titled "the yard." It was but a bare patch
of blsok earth, o dry thai It wm cracked
nd Assured In a goornetrlo design. The
low stable wm opposite the house, and be
tween them stood a farm wagon and a cul
tivator, under which a few chicken bud
fled, trying to find shelter from the sweep
of tbe wind.
A woman stood In the door of the bouse,
looking it distant tendril of smoke thai
trailed In the sky tbe smoke of tbe east
bound pnsscnirer train. She was young
and rather pretty, but her red balr was
twlited Into a hard, defiant little knot, ber
mouth drooped at the corner and her eye
were heavy and brooding. She listened
to the harsh eruaklng of the com and ber
(noe grew set and Inu nt
"Hick bod no right to bring me to such
a plaoa," she thought, frtt-tllng how will
ingly alio bad coiue. "He will be lata to
night, but I will make up the fire and
have the upwr muly." As she turned to
g In she glumxd down the wag-on truck
that led out throtiKb the corn to tbe main
mod. She oould ee the shiny top of a
buggy and In another moment sorrel
bono driven 1 7 a man In a light overooat.
Probably the real eUt ORent coming to
see Kick about the mortgage.
Tbe man drove Into the yard, tied hi
bona to the wheul of the wagon and came
toward the bouse. "Don't you know me,
Katar" be called loudly, to be beard aboTe
"Why, George Gilbert, 1 It your" she
exclulmed. She held out ber band. "How
did you ever happen to got borof Come
right Into the bouse. Kick' gone to town
The man followed her Into the main
room of the bouse, which served the double
purpose of arlor and kitchen. In one cor
ner stood the stove; above It a long shelf
eovoml with neatly scalloped paper, on
whirl) stood tlio lumps and tlnwnro. A
safe with perforated tin door wm In an
other corner. A bit of Ingrain oarit, a
rocking rhulr and a round tublo with a red
cover made the parlor.
"You see, I'm traveling for a grocery
bouse," the man said, sluing down, "and
I niake Houston now, and your folk said
I must be aura and oome out and see you.
How are you doing?"
" Doing 1" Kate cried, scornfully looking
around the room. "Can't you soef Mak
ing Just enough to keep soul and body to
gethercorn 14 cent and wo'ro nine mile
"Why don't you come bark homer" be
asked, leaning forward In his chair and
noticing how much Kate bud aged since
he came west
"Dick never seems to think of It ; besides,
I don't think we've got money enough to
take one of us, lot alone both. I just lung
to go sometime 11 seems like I'd go wild
staying bore. A man can got along bot
tur'n a woman."
"Are you comlngf" bo asked.
She stood a moment straightening tbe
oovor an the table. "Yes, I'll go," she
mid decisively. "There are a few things
I must take, but I can be ready In half ur,
."It's 4:30," George called.
' She laid ber hat and cloak on tbe bed.
"I'm glnd I baked the broad and dried ap
ple pies this morning," she thought; "men
are so holplcu about housework. I must
loave some word of where I'm gone. I
guess he has tried to be good to me, but be
has no right to keep me here."
She found a sheet ot the thin blue lined
paper on whlob she had so often written
to ber folks. She sat down on tbe bed
with tbe Ink bottle on cbalr near by.
"Dear Kick," she wrote, then hastily
crossed It out and begun "Blok." Then
she was motionless for a time, ber eyo
fixed on the celling. At last ihe wrote:
"George Gilbert 1 here and 1 going to
lend me money to go home on. I cannot
stand It here any longer. I hope you will
furglvo mo, for I know you buve tried to
be good to mo and"
Sho throw down her pen and ran Into
tho kltohen. George stood In the doorway,
smoking and looking down tho road.
"Bendyf" ho asked without turning.
"Oh, I can't got" sho cried huskily. "1
can't gol llo has done his best. It would
bo wicked when he has worked so hurd.
Poor Kick I" Sho sutdown and covored
bor face with her hands.
"All right," Georgo answered. "I was
willing to tn ko you, but If you think you'd
bettor not, Unit's nil right. Idon'twaut
to Interfere, ns I said before."
Sho watched him out of sight Then she
went Into the house and laid ber clothing
back In tho trunk. Her letter lay on the
door. Sho plukcd it up and threw It Into
the flro, ns if it uiid boeu something uo
clenn. Sho watched It blaze and turn to
a white ghost, which she crumbled with
the poker. When the house bad taken on
It oidlnury look, she put tho teakettle ou
the stove and set the table for supper. A
he out one of her plus she nulled. Sho
TVas to eat them, ufter all.
The wind bud gone with the sun, and It
WM dusk whin sl.e beiird tho socid of
Wheel. Shu took t!c Inn tern from the
Igh shelf, lit it arid set out for the barn.
"Is that you, Hli kt" she culled.
Kate held the lantern while her husband
unhitched and ted hi horse. Then they
walked together to the house. Through
tho open dour a block of light fell on the
ground and wltjiln the red tableuloth and
White dlshe shone plcuannt and cheerful.

The Marketing Point.
OF CLACKAMAS COUNTY!
Tho factory towns of the East are noted
for affording the best market to the neigh
boring farmers and gardeners in proportion
to the population of any of the towns in
that section. The reason for this is that
the people of these towns have a fixed in
come upon which they can always depend,
and, as a consequence, they are liberal buy
ers, paying cash for all their purchases.-.
As the Great Manufacturing Center
of thePacific Coast
Is Coming to be One of the ' nv
Best Marketing Towns in the State
This is proven every day by the number
of farmers, who are to be seen on its streets
selling their produce, who, until ju.sftnthe
last few years, sought the markets of other
towns. The system of macadamized roads
that is being built into all parts of' Clack
amas county, will enable all the people of
this county to share in the profitable) mar
ket that Oregon City affords. If, as it is
sure to do, the demands of Oregon City in
crease in the next five years as it has in the
past five years, this city will rank next to
Portland as a market place for j
