When an army of Willamette valley bankers and business
men swooped down ' on j Portland and asked for comparatively
small subscriptions to a linen mill, didn't it occur to you that
Portland should meet the request? ' , . ; j
It is a proposal for aj new industry; It is an effort to

endeavor to add to ; Oregjon ; industry i a highly important
branch of production every step of which has been tried and

I process of manufacturing. j ; ; S : f y - ' 1

than now exists to these two jdepartments of the state govern

WHY MADGE REPRESSED - AN
EXPRESSION OF GRATITUDE
The sound of Claire Foster's
French heels clicking down the
stairs had not died away when the
solution of her odd behavior flash

door with the wild idea of calling
her back. .
Her hair in kid -curlers, her
soiled, eloppy negligees, her ap

concerning the - household duties,

me with a pertinent question.
"What are you going to say to
her when you reach her?"
I laughed a trifle bitterly as I,

that I realized she had been try

that I was grateful to her. No, It

the girl had made, but filled also
with the little demonstrations of
doubt and suspicion to which I had
been a prey since Mother Graham's
discovery of Claire's photograph In

I felt cold and found myself
shivering when I had closed the
