Mr. Fred ErickRon, Jr., of the firm of Erickeon it Son, contVaetors of the Cen- tralia it Gray's harbor railway, was in the city Saturday on his way home from Portland, where he had been to secure more men to work on the grading of the new road and also to eecure pro- visions for the The meBRRre. are old and successful railroad contractors. When the transconi; -cntal line of the Canad- ian Pacific was v.'iilt tlie Messrs. Erick- son graded 300 miles of that road and prepared it for tlie iron, having men in their employ at one time. They now have contracts for grading at both ends of the line of the Tacoma, Olym- pia and ChehuliB Valley railway, now in course of construction between Cen- tralia on the east and Gray'e Harbor on the west. They now have eighty-five men at work on ihe end neacst the har- bor and are adding men and teams fast as they can get them. On the eastern end, naid Mr. Erickson they are at present working only a small free of (sixteen men under the su- pervision of Foreman Andrew P.rask. This force is at work on 'lie other side of Mound prairie about twelve miles be- yond Centralia. Mr. Erickftm stated to a reporter of the CintoNid.K thai the road from Cen- tralia to (iruy'B Harbor would be the cheapest and easiest lie had ever known in a timbered country. The jrnuling on an average does not amount to more than 12.000 yurds to the mile. It is an easy down grade nearly all the way from Centralia to the thought the whole line would be completed within eighteen He though Ihe grade would be completed from the torminu? on the harbor into Hoqniain within the next twelve Ganji? nre at work slashing, clearing and grading. Nothing but the scarcity of labor has so far 'icluyed the contractors. They began on .Inly 15. cleariiiL' and grading ten mile? on each of the line be- tween Centralia and the harbor. This twenty mile? all that the Kncksons hiive in their contract, but it is noi un- likely that lln-y will gel contracts for at a. part of the remaining peven miles.

Then Mr. Olson leaned far over the rail and raising his voice he called the second mate's attention to a matter of great importance. ''Mr he "what'e eat- ing yon, you tow-headed, block-eyed lub- ber?

Then he jumped on him with both feet and .shouted: in----- don't you pay ont that stern line, you low-lived, white-livered, mule-eared, hog-backed, glab-eidcd, bench-legged, feeble-minded moll-grubber! What are we paying you And he finished on the poor man with a kick in the Tho deck-hand ran the line out, and made the bout fast.

No locality offers a better opportunity for Market gardening than the region about Centmlin, while the prices secured for products ot' iiiis character are first- class. The suppiy has at no time been equal to the demand, and the latter has during the past year increased in a greater ratio than ever before. In and about Centralia the and richest eoil abounds. New York state lias long been cele- brated among the eastern stales for dai- rying. But in that department of agri- culture she has been surpassed by En- gland in yield of milk nnd butter per animal, chiefly for the reason that En- gland has better pasturage. In the lat- ter country greeen grass lasts seven or eight months of the year. In Western Washington cattle feed on green grass j an average of eight and nine months in each year. There is no better country for dairying in the world. The growtli of Centralia in all direc- tions has been rapid almost beyond ex- ample. In the few months since tlie 1st of Sanuary last 800 buildings have been erected in Centralia. Among the rest are several store buildings and busi- ness blocks. CKNTRALIA'S POPULATION.

It was supposed that she had returned to tho car for Terry's revolver. She made a sensational scene over the dead body on her return.
