Aberdeen Herald. Thursday, - February 12, 11591. THE STATE OF WASHINGTON. It has been said, and not without reason, that if a kindly fate had planted the feet of the Pilgrim Fathers upon the smiling slopes of Puget sound, there would have been little difference today between New England and Labrador. The same energy that has made Massa chusetts rich and populous would in half the time make the state of Washington a Belgium in density of population and an England in wealth. What a decade of sporadic and spasmodic enterprise has done for Washington attests that this reflection is not wide of the mark. What there is of its present greatness has come to knowledge within little more than half a score of years. The first white man who made his home in Seattle now lives in that city and is yet an active business man. He has seen a forest's transforma tion into a great city. Fifteen years ago there was no such place as Tacoma on the maps, and the encyclopsedia-makers had never heard of it. ...

.Aberdeen Herald. Thursday. - - February 26, UJSM. Electricity as a Factor in Capital. •'No enterprise in the world," said a well known electrician, "has increased within the last few years as rapidly as tli • business of electric lighting. The amount of money invested in electric light plants in this country today is ♦ 120,000.000, and it is only eleven years ago. you remember, that the light was first perfected. From the few lamps burned by Kdison at Menlo Park, in 1879, there have grown into present use at least 125,000 arc light and 1,700,000 iu candescent lights." One of the most noticeable results of this remarkable growth, says Electric Power, is the increase in the price of platinum. Here is au incandescent lamp. You see the short strip of wire attached to the copper conductor just at the top of the globe. Well, that is platinum. It connects the carbonized loop, and is one of the absolutely indispensable features of the lamp, because it expands at the same tem|>erature an...
