The Associated Press in sending; out the news of the intro
duction of a bill in congress
ing; at Crumpoegr put the reason for the proposed structure
like this:
"To commemorate the British-American treaty on the
acquisition of the Oregon Country."
The Washington newspaper reporter (or the Associated
Press reporter) who used the quoted words needs to brush
iup on his history
For every Oregon pioneer, and most of the other people of
this state who read the newspapers, know that it was no
treaty that was ratified on r,iay 2, 1843. Far rrom It. But
the vote taken at Champoeg on that day had the binding
effect of a treaty
A vote of the people of this country, the Oregon Country,
which was then foreign territory; a vote of only a few more
than 100 men. There is doubt as to the exact number. The
current record has it 102, with 60 in favor of the British
flag and 52 in favor of the Stars and Stripes.
That vote decided the Oregon Country for United States

Oregon Country United States territory.
These things would work together for the building of the
proposed Champoeg highway from the capital to the metropolis.
(Portland Telegram.)
The Oregon Statesman, breathing always of optimism and
occasionally of mint, tells us that a batch of 1000 yards of
toweling was put through the bleachnig process in the new
Salem mill the other day, and they got a perfect "do" on it,
so solving at last, a vexing problem.1
; This is news of real importance' to all of us who have
watched wftfc interest the development of an industry that
means muili to Oregon. The Statesman goes on to say that
toweling is now woven in a variety of patterns and that the!
workmen are becoming daily more expert at their new
learned task, so that the Salem product may find welcome
in the most exacting markets. ;
Even the first comparatively unbleached output of the

Lynda Fentbn, daughter of John
Fenton, a periodical drunkard, has
Just obtained her first job as a
typist In the office of Armitage A
Son, owners of one of the biggest
factories in the United States.
Her father continually harps
upon Lynda's mother, how she ran
away with a man who had more
money than he. He insists every
woman has her price and will yield
to her destiny sooner or later.
- Lynda s one mend and com
panion Is David Kenmbre, whose
father has sunk from prosperity
to poverty through high living.
- He has obtained the job for her
at Armitage & Son. But he be
gins to regret this when it Is
known that Ralph Armitage had
-spotted" Lynda,
Dave, meantime, had been at
tracted somewhat by another girl
in the office, Emily Andrews.
Chapter 4
Lynda Meets Emily Andrews
At first Lynda didn't realize
that the information of "Armi's1
return was meant for her, and
then she felt her face grow hot.
for there was a malicious note in
Emily Andrew's voice. She said
nothing, however.
The morning passed very swift
ly. When the twelve o'clock gong
sounded, they all trooped out for
luncheon. Then she suddenly re
membered that in her hurry to
get away she had brought nothing
to eat with her.
As she reached the sidewalk.
she felt a hand steal into hers, and
a voice said, ooaxinely:
"Come on and dash over to the
soda fountain with me for a bite.
They have the best chocolate sun
daes in town."
Lynda turned quickly. Beside
her was the girl whose desk was
next to hers.
I never eat lunch." she fibbed,
for she realised that she. had no
money with her.
"Look here, old dear, what are
you reducing for? You are noth
ing but skin and bones now. Come
on, there goes Dave Kenmore, and
if we can get a seat next to him,
he'll pay for our lunch."
"David hasn't any more money
than I nave." blurted out Lynda,
and could hare bitten her tongue
out for the break.
"Oh," exclaimed Emily, "you
know him, do you? I thought 1
saw you come in together this
morning. Tell me all about him.
I'm dying of curiosity. How does
it come that you know him so well
that you can gauge the amount of
his shekels off-hand?"
"I've known David Kenmore
ever since I was born," replied
Have you? The girl came
closer. "Isn't he the handsomest
ever? Every girl in the office has
fallen for him with a thud."
Lynda stopped still In amaze
"What do you mean, 'fallen'?'
she asked.
"Look here. Miss Innocence
Don't pull that stuff on 111' Emily
Just wait until the next time
David walks through the office
and you'U see every girl in the
place lamp him. He gets more at
tention, from everybody but me
than even Arm! himself. Oh,
don't mean to say that I'm not as
sweet on him as the rest, but 111
Emily knows her cream pie. I've
been in that office about two
years, and I've learned a thing or
two not handed out in school, and
one of them is, if a fellow thinks
you are chasing him, he'll run like
a rabbit; so I've been most Ritzy,
old dear, most R-I-T-Z-Y. I'm
glad to say that up to date virtue
has been rewarded. I'm the only
girl that Mister Davie has paid
any attention to whatever."
By this time Emily had man
aged to pull Lynda to the entrance
of the drug store, and they met
David coming out. Lynda was for
hurrying on. but Emily stopped.
Hello, David called happily.
"I'm glad you've already made the
acquaintance of the nicest girl at
Armltage's, Lynda.

sort I'd like the minute ahe joined
the force, so I spoke to her right
away. She tells 1 me she doesn't
eat lunch, but I've been telling
her she needn't be careful of her
diet yet. She has a more boyish
firure now than the boys them
David understood right away
that Lynda was not eating because
she had no money.
"Come, girls, I'll stake you. I
was lust looking for Miss An

He could have choked himself
when he saw Lynda's expression.

David looked at Emily narrow
ly. Somehow she did not seem as
fascinating as she had at first.
The little, sleek, black head of
Lynda seemed much more beauti
ful than Emily Andrews' much
curled locks.

teach Lynda much." David kent

Emily into the drug store, and as
she sat down at the table he de

straight-forward sincerity much

He wished he didn't remember
how little Lynda usually ate in
the morning. Knowing her so
well, he realized that In her pride
she would not accept a luncheon
from him if she knew she couldn't

Still he was somewhat mystified
to think that Emily and Lynda did
not seem to hit it off. together at
