Williams Creek Letter.
Dkak CoimiKK Nut Laving heard any
thing from this district for some time,
1 thought 1 would write a few lines in
connection with our gloiious climate.
I must say that we have a good climate.
Since we have been here we have paid
for our home, ll0 acres of good land,
which was all brush and timber a good
many years ago. 1 was one of a big
family when we settled here. Wo all
went to work, big, little, old and young
and we hail lo economize In order to live,
but we did. We paid for our place and
also accumulated property so wn got to
be good livers with plenty to live on.
I write this letter after all these long
years to show others that those that
have no homes can do as we have done.
Times are better now for a poor man
Ihiin they were when my father settled
on this creek. My father was a tier man,
a close calculator. When he died he
left Ins family in good ciicumstances,
with a good banking account. This was
all brought about by hard labor and
As I look around and see so many
men of families that are depending on
days labor for support, they had better
seek homes and quit talking of hard
times and lay up something for their
old age and 'increase the tux roll. As it
is now a few taxpayers have to stand
the burden of the taxes.
We have on this creek some good
farmers that are farmers, then we have
others that don't seem lo care, just so
they exiBt, Perhaps I am a little haul
on the settlers on this creek, but if
others had worked as our family has
done, we would be paying thousands of

THERE was no doubt in Dorothy's
mind that she had niai'e a wise decision-.
That is, according to a pe
cuniary view of the thing and the smil
ing approval of a host of p -or relations
whose proclivities for advice, hereto
fore, were in ill proportiuu to the sue
of their purse.
And though Inwardly rebellious, the
idea of sacrificing herself on the altar
of Mammon seemed to her as interest
ing as it m odd-. But money could do
anything! All the pinching little econ
oinics'thiit they had been compelled to
practice for years would vanish like
snow under n noonday sun, und some
sense of independence be established.
But there is no getting over the hitter
fact that other thoughts, and, perhaps,
other hopes, had been crushed into the
"All that is past and gone, though,"
Dorothy told herself with a' stanch
sense of propriety, "and 1 mustn't al
low my self to think too much about It."
She passed her hand, a little wearily,
through the brown hair that waved
buck from her face, and- leaned one el
bow meditatively on the window sill,
thinking of the future she had laid out
for herself, and living over, in a hun
dred ways, Ihe past.

He gaited at her fixedly for a mo-
