Slillholding her hands, he said, "GiAyi night, Gorgeous." Toby went inside then. The night lamp was burning, casting a dim, faintly yellow glow over the hall. There was not a sound to be heard in the whole house. Very quietly Toby went up the-two llights of stairs, switched on the light in her own room and closed the door.

It was as though she could still feel his touch on them; as though she were transferring that touch to her cheeks. Oh, she was glad he hadn't tried to kiss her or take her in his arms. She didn't want cheap caresses. She wanted every memory of the time they spent together to be fine and beautiful. She wanted to think of Tim always as he had been tonight. Handsome and tender and devoted-She could still see him, looking down at her as he had during that last dance. Only a brief moment. Living that moment again, Toby's heart raced.

"If you'd try it once , you'd think so. They'll probably want to shoot the picture a dozen different ways. They always do." "How long will it take? All morning, I hope. We're paid by the hour, you know." "Will you have lunch with me?" Toby hesitated. She wanted to say that she would, but caution raised a warning voice. "I'm sor-hy," she said, "I'm afraid I can't. You see, 1 don't know how long I'll be working or whether the office will have something else for me in the afternoon." "Then how about dinner?"

There fore the financiers must be elim inated, without sacrifice of pri vale ownership or individual lib-erty. ' How can this be done? Well, Henry Ford is not the great indus trialist who has similarly spoken, nor is his the only industry that lias made progress toward the goal he describes. He by his example has pointed out one possible way. Perhaps these leaders, working together, may some time find the right answer. It is they who are best equipped for the search. They should be relieved of handicap that the still infant cap italistic system may realize in full its vast possibilities. BARBS SCIENTIST soys that as people grow older their ears get larger.

' Nevertheless Henry Ford is an authority . worthy of heed when he confines, his discussions to matters concerning which he is qualified to speak.-, . When Ford talks about industry he is in his own alley, for industrially he is probably the world's outstanding success.. So, when Henry Ford predicts, as he did yesterday, that t lie machine, age ultimately "will take control of the world away from the financiers" his remarks cannot be cast aside by a shrug. Ford took his own business away from control by financiers, and it muy be that he knows ' something about what is going on in industry when he thus speaks. The Ford automotive plant is tin Institution that is hardly appreciated by the folks at home, but it is regarded by the world ns' the outstanding achievement in modern industry. ' i Envoys from practieully every industrial nation in the world have come to the United States to study the Ford system, and the influence of Ford is becoming universally more and more apparent. Perhaps it would be well, then, for the United States to take a cue from its own citizens and look - to his achievement for possible guidance in reshaping its commercial policies. , In a recent interview in the Saturday Evenipg Post Ford relates his views in such a form that from them one might derive a philosophy of capitalism, which has hitherto lacked a philosophy that is thoroughly understandable to the average mind. . Capitalism has had a rutlicr spontaneous and unordered development, directed chit-fly by opportunism and expediency. It has evolved as need and circumstances have arisen, and has never been reduced to a samplified, concrete theory. Likc'Topsy, it has just "growed."; , . Because capitalism has been the outgrowth of actual circumstances instead rather than the product of mere thought, it has proven the most efficient means of redistributing income and of dispensing economic goods that has yet been devised. Other systems, including socialism and communism, have shown fatal weaknesses whenever applied. This does not mean that capitalism has no weaknesses nor is susceptible of improvement. ,',In his Saturday Evening Post article Ford states his position in industry, and it may be that his position will ultimately be that of all' industrialists' He i-eveals that the meat of his system is the compensation of the producer with lljf nearest possible equivalent of the yalue-'Of the workers production, which ho accomplishes by paying the highest possible wages, while ft the same time rendor-ng goods available at the lowest possible price. This, of course, can be done only by exacting the smallest possible profit, which explains why Ford thinks industry will be taken I. Nutling, around for a reunion, ana we sug- ...;,u fv, , all their fiddles in the melee. When work had been begun to ,,, th-i , ui uii- Put the Maple street school b ock condition for a new, modern grade building, an effort was made to prevent the cutting down of the old cedar trees on the Seventh street side of the block; but, it is to be regretted, it came too late and the trees have been razed, ex- cresting imngs aDout me nisiory of the block A nrnminpnt citizen i in the early days was Demas Beach, a "store-keeper, a community worker too. for we notice that he gave liberally towards tho construction of the Albany College building. He resided for quite a while on the Maple street school block. We are not certain about the date of his advent on it, or when it was sold to the district. He owned it in 1862, and probably for some time before, for tho rings on the biggest of the cedar trees sawed off near the ground, showed an age or is years. Miss Jennie , ,., .u f.i llieill i tsiui-ui ntrit; uii-m, savs sill; was told by father that Mr. Beech planted the trees on the place, which is reliable. Before 1878 it is known that Maggie Irvine, daughter of ex-Sheriff Irvine, and cousin of the editor of the Portland Journal, was the teacher in tho school there, called the Seventh street school. Miss Irvine married Mark Bilyeu, as heretofore stated, and was succeeded by Miss Hettie Miller, now Mrs.- Hamilton, who graduated from Albany college in 1879. At about the same time Miss . Maria Irvine was teaching the east . ui . u,,!ii f end school, a one room building at about the present site of Madison school. Like the other Miss Irvine, no relation, she was soon captured, marrying W. H. Gaston, recently deceased. It is interesting to- restate the fact that a son is now an assistant in a high position in the treasury department of the United States. When Mr. Beach sold the block to the school district, he moved his residence to the corner of Ninth and Maple street, not far away, and the house improved, has been the home of Miss Ida Stellmacher for many years. The building just torn down, took the place of the old one, moved to the block of the Catholic church, where is was utilized. A new building was erected about 1894. and served the city well for 41 .years. Most of the timbers continued to be sound and useable. What was called modern 41 years ago is no longer so now, perhaps more than in clothing, the transition has been marked, and it is pleasing to see the long one-story structures for children. When we reached Albany there were no members carrying the name' of Beach here. All hod gone, Ed and, his wife, Rebecca, a sister-in-law of the writer, to Colfax, Wash., and Milton, another son, to Portland, where he was an em ;pi0yee of the city for a long time, But tncr was a daughter here. 0f Demas.

Mr. Marks is thoroughly interested in Albany's civic progress, has been chairman of the Commercial club, and is constantly called upon for outside talks before clubs, etc.. often too busy to fulfill. The other members of Mr. James Marks' family for various reasons have located in California. Here is an Old Timer, brought up to date. A few days ago we met Willard Davis near the rim of the post office, opposite his domicle in the McDowell building. We conversed as usual for we have known each other half a century, or thereabouts, and we continue to like Willard, retired on account of poor health, but still able to fiddle. Willard remarked: "I have been fiddling for sixty one years, and there has never been a year that I didn't fiddle." Upon close inquiry we discovered that Willard was born in 1874. ayhich would make him a little over 61 years. That suggested that Willard must have been a prodigy if he was fiddling in the first few years of his existence. Perhaps his system of crying for something to eat and drink sounded that way. Anyway he has been fiddling, to use the old time expression, since he was a boy. He has probably played at more dances than any one in the county. In the early days the dance was not shut down at midnight, nor anywhere near then, in fact kept going until sunrise frequently. That required endurance m the part of the fiddler, and YVifiard had it. The McKnight boys and Crawford began many years before, but they quit a long time ago except for personal amusement, while Willard even noy-;ontiniies to drvv the catgut b;(ck )ind forth. (Wijlard was the sWl in a worthy pi-er family. Beside fiddling, he is quite an artist, making good sketches. Thirty or forty years ago he made a sketch of the first house in Albany, from descriptions given him. and the Democrat published it. stereotyped by Hicks of Portland.

This time the band played a number with a slower tempo. Toby had 'heard the words, sung by a radio fas-orite. They were rather sentimental and it was ti dreamy, sentimental tune. She said suddenly, "Lei s dance. He ha.t asked her earlier and she had relused, afraid to reveal that she was not a practiced dancer. But her caution proved unnecessary. In Tun's aims she moved lightly, smoothly. The dancing space was small and crowded. Another couple, ralher awkard, swung toward them and he held her closet. Toby telt his cheek against her hair. It was only for an instant; the awkward couple moved on and Tim released her. ' He said, 'Why didn't you tell me you can dance tike tins?" She laughed, not bothering to reply. She had never known that dancing could be such sheer delight, but then, she had never had such a partner. She was sorry, when, at last, the music ended and they went back to their table. Several new-comers were entering, the women in eve ning wraps and the men i it ta.l ! coats. Toby saw that nearby tables hud been deserted. Suddenly sne realtcd it must Ik growing late.
