PORTLAND, Feb.' 18 (Special)
Reclamation of vast areas of the pa
cific Northwest now covered with
stump seem certain to reault from'
the movement launched thla week at
the Southwest Washington .Develop1
ment Association convention at Van

clearing the cut-over lands and turn
ing thla Immense Idle acreage Into
N. II. Coffman, member of the ex
ecutive committee of the association,
and one of the most substantial cltl
tens of the 8iates'waa active In map
ping out the preliminary atepa In tfalM
development. II advocated tbe pool
ing of large logged-off arena and the
or ku n m tlon of a big company, with
a capital atock running Into tbe mil
lions, to develop the landa and place
them on the market.
Mr. Coffman la of the opinion that
the logged-over-tracta should be cut
Into amall farm a where Intensive
farming methoda ran be applied and
the beat reaulta aecured. The land
to be utilized are of the most fertile
character, with great depth and
strength of soil.
It waa proposed by the speaker that
paymenta on the amall farms be made
ao easy for the buyera that the bur
den would not be felt seriously, : In
thla way It la believed" that the amall
farm on logged-off land can be made
profitable and popular.
Mr. Coffman proied that money
be' ralaed for the development of the
raw lands by bonding, using a plan
similar to that followed In Irrigating
This Is the most advanced stand
that haa yet been taken on the uti
lization of cut-over lands In the North
west and . plana Juat announced are
the most convincing yet made. In
'connection with tbe eharplt method
of ridding the land of stumps, the.
scheme promise to be a great suc
cess, adding remarkably to the wealth
of the Pacific Northwest State.

The Man Who Was
By M. QUAD

i erary Praaa.
be Sllnger and bis wife being too
lazy to work were determined to live
on the community of Hojfewell. The
couatable warned Abe tbat be couldn't
do It. Abe auld nothing, but Abe'
clothing waa found by tbe mill pond.
Mrs. Sllnger took on awful, aud a soft
b carted, citizen started a purse for ber
and $00 were- ralaed, and there were
other who contributed food and cloth
ing. The widow moved from tbe sta
ble Into a shanty.
Ten daya after the powwow A tie
Sllnger apeared. He bad been car
ried downstream by tbe current and
thrown on an Inland, where be bad re
malaed unconscious for day and with
out food for other day. It was a pret
ty shy story, but the people bad to
believe It and congratulate the teller
on his wonderful escspe.
It waa about sixty duys later when
the next event came off. A citizen
who owned a farm outside tbe village
hired Abe to dig a well. He bad re
fused Joba not ao hard or dangerous.
but he took thla one right away. He
preferred well digging to even the
pontofflre stet. When he bud been
digging for two days and after be bud
thrown out blnbi about quicksand and
cave-Ins the alarm was given tbat the
curbing of the well bad caved In and
that Abe was probablly a dead man
eighteen feet down.
There Is only oue thing to do In such
a case dig the poor fellow out. Jf liv
ing, succor him; If dead, contribute a
fund to bury blm and carry the widow-
along. There were aome who wouldn't
hare come down but for the fact tb .
Abe bad gone to work and made '
Hla desire to belp himself opened
all hearts. If tbat hadn't then there
were the wldow'a tearf and lamenta
tlons to fall back oh. The sum of $100
waa rained for her, and It waa more
clothes and more provisions.
Tbe bottom of the well waa struck
at la it, but there waa no Abe. There
sure had been a Cave-In, but It hadn't
caught blm. There waa a mystery on
band to be solved. If. -not at the bot
tom of tbe well, then where waa be?
Tbe question waa on every Up for four
daya, and then Abe came back to an
swer It himself. It waa easily ex
plained. He bad bad warning of tbe com
ing cave-la and bad scrambled out
Such was his terror tbat be bad been
temporarily out of' Bis bead, ne re
membered running away aa fast a
be could, but when bla aenae came
back to blm be waa thirty mile away
and biding In a farmere barn. A
soon aa be bad recovered bla nerve he I
came Jogging along home and waa
ready to tackle, tbe Job again.
Hopewell aboofc lta bead In a doubt
ing way, but did not talk much. Abe
BUnger waa coming to the front and
becoming a hero. He bad also moved
from a ahanty Into a cottage and waa
living on tbe top shelf. A a matter of
fact, be did Ooiab tbe well and thereby
made himself solid with all who wight
have otherwise criticised. Neverthe
less tbe town constable felt tbat be bad
a duty to perform. - He went to Abe
"You went to your death la tbe river
and returned. You went to your death
In the well and returned. Don't try
tbe little game again. If you do I
don't believe the town will raise an
other dollar for your widow."
The summer had departed and late
autumn bad come. Abe hadu't tired
himself out looking for any more Joba,
but waa now offered the position of
night watchman of the vlllape. It was
cold job and poor pay, and no one
wanted 1t until he stepped forward.
Not a robbery had ever been commit
ted in the village, but there were tax
payers who thought It best to guard
aralnat uch thing happening. ben
the constable beard of tbe appoint
ment he met Abe to aay:
"No foollshneaa, now.
"If robbers come I (ball kill aome of
them," was the reply.
"But If you have them kill you don't
make a mess of It."
"I aball do my best to die, and when
you aee me lying dead you will be sor
ry for what you have said."
Two weeks passed, and then one
night at midnight there were yella
and abots and tbe noise of running,
and the people turned out to And Abe
811nger missing. He wa searched for,
but not found. Next day there wa a
grand bunt, but no clew. Robbers had
killed him and borne hla body away
another public subscription for the
widow more provision, fuel and
clothing. She actually opened an ac
count at the village bank and put on
mourning. Another two week and
the cat came back. Abe walked In to
say that be bad discovered three yegg
men about to break Into the postofflee
and when be had fired on them they
had seized and chloroformed him and
borne blm away In a buggy- For
tw-elve daya he had known nothing,
but now-he-had come back to take
his job again.
Hoewell didn't aay much. It didn't
threaten. It didn't bring out tar and
feather. It simply naked the ques
tion of Abe Sllnger: ,
"How much cash will yon take to
aknte out of thla town and atay
"One hundred dollar." waa the
prompt reply. And It waa ralsedl In
an hour, and within an hour Abe and
hi wife were departing for new fields.
They were poor, but honest, but nop-,
well preferred the other kind.
