People who pass thin City on the railway get Only a View of n Lew of Tho Mills hut they nevertheless receive a fair idea of what Centralia is doing from the Busy aspect of these few. We Are not wholly limited to saw Mills As a reporter realized who stepped into Wheeler Wallace s Brick Yard last saturday afternoon. It was a Beautiful Day for a walk around among the fac tories. The Sun shone brightly yet though the Breeze bracing the air was so w Sariri Tufit no one Felt the need of an overcoat. Or. J w. Wallace whose Home is near by welcomed the reporter. Or. Wallace has been successively lawyer editor and Inan fac user having wisely settled Down to add to the world s wealth instead of depleting it. Both of the proprietors came to this City from Dakota the former borne of so Many of Centralia s citizens. Both have become very popular among Centralia s business men. These Yards have a daily capacity of annually. The kilns have fourteen furnaces with 100 flues. The Plant Cost the ruling Price of Brick is per thousand and the Cost of making ranges from to including everything. So it will be seen that the business affords a very respectable margin. The Yards were opened in february 1889. In May of that Vear the firm then being Wheeler Anderson or. J. W. Wallace bought out or. Anderson s interest. Or. Wal lace has since had charge of the inside business while or. Anderson has taken the outside rustling. They make a very Fine Quality of Brick Twenty five men. Next to the Brick Yard one passes t Row of neat tenant houses in which a number of the employees of the Mills and Brick Yards Ricaide. We then come to the Large lumber Yards of Ballard Bond. This firm is one of the busiest in Centralia at the present time although their Mill not the largest. They pm ploy 41 men acid their weekly output is feet. They to keep on hand a Stock of feet. The Plant embraces four the Mill itself the two dry houses and the Large shed for the Kiln dried lumber. Besides there Are several tenant cottages owned by the firm. The Mill was first operated by William Bond alone hut in August 1rs9, or. Chas. A. Ballard bought a Large interest and has since managed the business of the firm which has been highly _ the planing Mill of jams Bachtell lies next South of the Wheeler a Wal lace Brick Yard. It is doing a fishing Bike Newi under the direction of or. Charles harm who a Well known in Centralia a successful Carpenter and contractor. They employ thirteen men and their expel it h aggregate in the rough per Init Ali. The reporter next visited the Mill of the Michigan lumber company which is nearest the City of this Row of lumber manufactories. This Mill is one of the largest in this Section and employs fifty men. The to be a much wider diversification of the Small fruit Industry. Ail increasingly Large proportion of the population of the country lives now in smaller cities and villages that Are poorly supplied if at All with Small fruits. Beside these in country districts a Large Sale of Soine kinds of fruits May often be made among misguided Farmers who think that they cannot afford time to grow such Lux uries for themselves. It costs too much to reach such men As farm Homes Are generally too scattered. Certainly they cannot expect to be supplied As cheaply As the wholesale prices in cities when the Market is glutted. Nor is it Best that they should be thus supplied for if obliged to grow Small Fruite for their own use they can get a Home Supply fresher and of better Quality As Well As More cheaply than the same fruit can be sold for in cities. It seems to a and is rather Tough to have strawberries sold at 2 or 3 cents a quart As they occasionally Are but the loss is the Cost picking and transportation to Market. On the vines the lowest prices May pay better than Grain crops As they have of late years been sold. Early potato a. I. James, and Suk Tateos office in Man Elf r b Lishick. South Tower Ato. P j. . Barber main St., Centra a. Wash. Harms Emery the Gem Saloon. Cau. On them for Fine liquors cigars a contributor to the Prairie Farmer says potatoes like All other seed will run out unless Good care is taken in the selection. And the Quality has consid Erable influence in securing a Supply Early. It is Best to secure the seed in Good season to that when the time comes for planting the seed there May be no delay. The soil should be Well drained if not undo drained Good surface drainage should be provided. While potatoes require considerable moisture yet in a cold wet soil they will make a poor growth hence it is Best to see that Good drainage is provided. A Rich Loamy soil that can be readily worked into a Good tilth is Best. One item is secure a Quick growth and a Good Supply of available Plant Root is necessary. If Good drainage cannot readily be a Good plan is to make Small ridges not As High As for Sweet potatoes or an Large. For the Center of this make a reasonably Good Furrow and in those places where the seed in to be put a Small Spade Ful of fresh manure. Cover this lightly with inches will plenty. On this Plant the seed. Use Good medium sized potatoes neither too Large or email. Step on the seed after planting so As to press Well into the soil and then cover. I tidying up gives a better Opportunity for drying out and warming up. The fresh manure will add materially to keeping the soil warm. 1 tried putting the manure on top after planting the seed and covering with soil but i prefer putting the fresh manure in the Bottom of the fur Rev and put a thin layer of soil Over this and planting the seed. Give Good cultivation keeping the foil in a Good tilth Eoas to induce a Quick growth. It is not necessary to put in i ridges if the soil is dry Al though More Benefit from the Sun can be secured in warming up if ridged.

The attention of the Public has for a year past in a Large degree been Given to advantages and sold attractions Centralia and Lewis cd Jinty offer to the intending settler. The Large immigration that is now setting in with th0 and vent Spring will All be to Western Washington. People who Are looking for Homes no longer go to Cali fornia to Nebraska or Dakota. Of the thousands who Are coming to Western Washington the greater number naturally visit puget sound. It is one of the most Beautiful Inland seas of the would but the Farmer the business Man of moderate Means will have great difficulty in find ing a location along its shores. There agricultural land is scarce and in some counties an almost unknown Quantity. We invite this Large class to Lewis county where agricultural land is More plentiful than in any other county of Western Washington. There Are tributary to Centralia acres of Rich Bottom lands suitable for agricultural purposes. The prices paid for farm products Are very much higher than in the East and Lewis county farms yield a better profit on the invest ment than an Eastern farm of equal value. The Home Market demand the cause of Tho High Price of farm products has steadily 1 a logging Road of their own that extends two Miles into the Woods immediately the past and seems destined to increase More rapidly in the future. While possessing More farm ing land than the sound Sec Tion the Timber land about Centralia is As dense and valuable As any in the United states. It is As yet almost untouched although seven saw nulls Are now located at Centralia. The longest log Ging Road from any of these Only two Miles while beyond this the unbroken Forest stretches to the Cas Cade Range Many Miles away.
