jfrkiay December 15 1911 PIONEER MANUFACTURER Makes Lumber, Boxes, Doors, Windows and Raises Fruit Charles A. Wright is one of the pioneers of the Peshastin valley. He has been extensively engaged in the manufacture of fruit boxes for the past five years and was among the first to engage in the saw mill business in the valley. Twelve years ago he entered into partnership with E. Nemeyer and for a number of years manufactured lumber for the local and export trade. Several years ago he took over the business interest of his partner. With the increased demand for fruit boxes throughout the valley, Mr. Wright added a box factory and planing mill to the plant and since then has been busily engaged in supplying the trade. To meet the increase of business he installed a large water power system and remodeled his mill and factory and is now able to meet the pressing de mand for his products. In connection with his box factory he carries in stock all kinds of dressed and dimension lumber, sh...

A PRODUCTIVE FRUIT SECTION Peshastin One of the Most favored Portions of the Great We natchee Valley The history of the Wenatchee valley may be summed up in a few words and the result of the pioneering by men who realized the opportunities awaiting their efforts has brought changes noth ing short of marvelous. The Peshastin valley, which is a part of the Wenatchee valley, represents one of the best developed fruit sections to be found in any part of the country. Time was not far distant when steam roads and interurban lines passing up and down the valley, transporting car loads of red apples to many destinations, including distant lands, was not expect at such an early date. Only the fact that the upper Wenat chee valley has kept apace with that part of the valley first to gain promi nence, has it been possible for these commercial facilities to be a part of the busy institutions that make the valley in general the bustling, thriving com munity that it is. The Peshastin valley is so...

NORTHWEST THE HOST fAVORED FRUIT SECTION Wenatche Valley Leads in Quality and Quantity and Knows Not failure of Crops The orchards and vineyards of the peat Southwest have been portrayed as the place where lands reach their highest cultural development and the most astounding value. As against the eastern farm worth one hundred and fifty or two hundred dollars an acre, choice orange land in southern Cali fornia is valued at one thousand dollars and even fifteen hundred an acre. And this does not seem so highly unreason able when it is remembered that oranges, figs, almonds, pomegranates and other tropical 'products cannot be grown anywhere. Northwest which are esteemed as high ly and yield as golden a stream from apples, peaches, apricots and cherries and other common fruits, as has ever been claimed for the orange. Take Wenatchee valle or the Yakima vally or a dozen other mountain valleys in Washington. There you can find men growing wealthy on returns from five and ten acre orchar...

He was one of the most careless and nappy persons In the world.^^_ ;„ Id these mountains the' roads seem to be precipices, down which our horses slid nod plunged dangerously, j My comrade went first, taking a path j which seemed to him to be shorter and j easier than the regular rood, which, however, could not have been worse. In doing this we become lost, and night was fast approaching. We had hoped to reach the railroad which would take us to civilization, as 1 termed it, where we could spend our Christmas more pleasantly than we now expected to. As long as It was light enough we struggled along, and suddenly, just as It grew too dark to see anything twenty feet away, we came to a hut black a,'id low. It looked sinister to me, but Jule...

The main building is 60x150 feet.)' This company is building and equipping its mill at Leavenworth • where the company owns approximately ' twenty acres of land for a mill site, which is admirably located for manu- i facturing purposes. When completed it will be the first operative mill of its kind in the world. This assumption may at first seem queer, when it is known that steel and iron are produced to some extent in nearly all the civiliz ed countries of the world, and to a very | great extent in the United States and | England; yet, the mill at Leaven-1 worth is distinctly different from: any of those now in operation anywhere. Not only does this apply to the system of operation or process; but also to the kind of ore used. Near ly all of the commercial iron and. stee! is manufa...

When "Orphan Girl" called at the newspaper office in response to a re quest Inserted In the editorial column the staff was astonished to see a little, pale slip of a girl, very much fright ened, but very, very sure she could write for n newspaper If the editor ■would give her a chance.
