Toby was going to keep the apartment. She was earning enough now so that she could at- ford it. The furniture was Har- i j riet's, but she wanted Toby to'?er V" oy marriage in a wu, keep that, too. "We'll be living in a hotel,'' Harriet said, "at least for a while. I'd rather go with Clyde when he's away on trips than stay here alone, so an apartment would be a nuisance. After- while we'll have a place of our own, but, in the meantime, I'd like to have you keep my things." Toby agreed. It would be lonesome without Harriet and she was glad she could stay in the same cheerful sourroundings. She had promised to go with Harriet to look at some hats one afternoon, but she had an appointment at the beauty shop. "I'll meet you at a quarter of four," Tooy said, at the street entrance of the store." 'All right. I'll be there." Toby hurried away. She finished at the beauty shop and went on to the store. Harriet was not in sight when she arrived there. "Shell probably come in a few minutes," Toby told herself, and strolled on to look at a shop window. . i The window proved uninteresting. Toby turned away a moment later and noticed a man coming toward her. He was of medium height and he wore a rather shabby suit and a dark hat. Toby had seen him somewhere. She tried to think where, but couldn't remember. The next instant he was beside her. The man stopped. "So Tve found you again!" he said. "This time you're coming with me!"

If the Manhattan elevator slrik had continued, the usual apartment "no-dogs-allowed" rule might have ceased to apply to St. Bernards with brandy casks. (Copyrlsht. 1036, KEA Service, Inc.) She was jelieved that he said nothing about the gossip column. They went to. the restaurant where he had taken her the first night they had dined together. It was a favorite of his, and Toby liked it, too. , Hillyer talked of events In the day's news. He had an amusing story to tell and asked about how she had spent the day. "He doesn't read Len Logan's column," Toby decided. "Or at least he didn't see that one." And then Hillyer surprised her. The waiter took away the soup plates and brought fresh ones. Hillyer looked up and said, "Sylvester " "Yes, Mr. Hillyer?" "Would you say this was a 'hot spot'?" The waiter hesitated an instant, Ihe gravity of his face unchanging. Then he said, "No, sir." Hillyer leaned back in his chair. "Neither would I," he said. . If that was a reference to Len I row just remember you are staring death in the face unless you are careful. The Safety council survey revealed that the majority of those killed and injured on highways in 1935 were victims of their own carelessness or ineffi ciency. These are not empty prophecies They are predictions based upon fact and experience. Most of tomorrow's accidents almost, all in fact will be avoidable. If you are mixed up in one the chances are that you will be at least in part to blame. So what are you going to do? Are you going to tear off more miles per hour than you are cap able of handling? Are you .going to leave it up to the other fellow to let you pass? Are you going to disobey traffic rules, or ignore signs and wai nings? Or are you going to do your share toward preserving your own life and those of others? These are questions which con front every motorist who starts out on the highways tomorrow. upon the answers depends the destines of the motorists. Will they enjoy the blessings of nature or suffer the curses brought upon by man. V KOAC Radio Program Saturday, April 11 5:00, On the cnmmiKPs- fi-.m music; 5:45.

MATTHEW Chapter XXVIII - In the' end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene .and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the. door and sat upon It. '; His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white', as now:'- ,'. I And for fear of him the keepers did shake," and became as dead . men.'.; '','.'' ' ; "r . ' . And. thq angel answered ad said unto the women, Fear ye not: for I know that yc seek Jesus, which was .crucified. : He' is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. - And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he Is risen from the dead and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great Joy; and' did run to bring his disciples the word. - . And as tricy went to tell his disciples', behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held, him by the feet, and worshipped him. . Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go toll by brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they sec me. Now when they were going, be. hold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all ; the things that were done. ' And when they were assembled with the ciders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money Unto the soldiers, ; , .Saying, Say Yc, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept. ' , And If this come to (he gov ernor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day. Then the elven disciples went away into Galilee, in to a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. . And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted, i And Jesus cumc and spake unto them, says, All power Is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach nil nations, baptizing thotnj h in the name of the Father.- and '.of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe .'all things, whatsoever I have " commanded you: and, lo, 1 am with you always, even unto' the end of the world. Amen. " IF YOU WANT TO LIVE If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do? Again, if you knew what to do to avoid death, would you do it? These questions are applicable to every motorist who starts out on the highway tomorrow. According to the National Safety aouncil, based upon results of its 1935 accident survey, one in every 400 automobiles on the road during this week end will be Involved in an accident. So when you start out tomorrow remember that you have one chance in 400 of getting into trouble. The survey figures indicate that during 1936 one in every 100 motorists will be injured, and one in every 3500 will be killed. As for pedestrians, one in every 400 will be injured and one out of 8,000 pedestrians will be killed. Half of tho accidents will take place between 5 p. m. and midnight. Tomorrow's toll,' due to the probable flood of traffib which will turn out for the Easter parade, - will probably be unusually heavy. It started here even today, with one man killed and another badly hurt on the Pacific highway near Halsey. So, when you start out tomor- By Fred Among the f amiles of the early fifties were the Paynes, Prices and Fromans, who eventually became related by intermarriage and it was not safe to talk about one's neighbors. Among those here on our arrival was Mart Payne, who had been a prominent farmer, residing near Albany, and then coming into the ci for his home as a retired farm M Pavnp ramp hpre fron er. Mr. Pavne came here from Tlnnuillo Til in ahnut 1RRI1 npr- haps a iittle iater, At the same .time were Nimrod Price and mem- v oers oi rus iamuv. irom mc same 1 ...UiU l.- 4U V.n-n jjictwe, willed wtia aiav 111c uuiug of some of the r romans. Mrs, Payne was a sister of Nimrod Price, and Mrs. Price was a Fro-man, if we have it straight. Mart's sons were Nimrod. Morgan, Rastus and George, the daughters became Mrs. Ellis Knox and Mrs. Jonn I Parsons, forming a popular and ! prosperous family, reaching out in it is not practical to follow now. Mrs. Payne died, we thinn somewhere near the time of our arrival. Later Mr. Payne was again married, raising a second family. His second wife was much younger than her husband, a fine woman, as was the first Mrs. Payne. Nimrod Payne had a good sized family, among them being Morris, prominent in Linn county politics for many years, being county clerk and county judge for a number of years, making a good record in both positions, respected and esteemed for many excellent qualities. He was married to Mrs. Mc-Clennan, who died several 'years ago. We knew George Payne well. He was a resident and property owner in Albany for many years, then going to Portland, where he recently died at the age of about 90 at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Charles H. Stewart. Mrs. Stewart is now in Europe on a visit with her former schoolmate, Mrs. Frank Wood, at Antwerp, Belgium, besides visiting other European spots. Mr. Payne was street superintendent here for a number of years, being the immediate predecessor of the present efficient supervisor of street .affairs. Mrs. Payne died several years ago, in Portland. Mrs. John Parsons became the mother of one of Linn's largest families, with sixteen children as tne record, we oniy remcmoei une larger family, that of V. S. Cald well, with seventeen. We are unable now to report definitely ' in reference to the others. Nimrod Payne was named after his uncle, Nimrod Price. Mr. Price became the father of twelve children, four dying while young. I Among those living for a long time were W. Kirk Price, Mrs. Clara I Price Wolverton, wife of the lale Federal Judge Chas. E. Wolverton, a woman of many fine accomplisn- lments and Clark Price, the infant , ,u fli. l,( !, hv Bior m,ore yearS' "d irk u nnlv nnrc nnw livmff. Ono KJt. ,t, uu. , are the only ones now living. One of the childrenf Nimrod Payne was Mary, who became the wife of Thomas Rhodes. Mr. Rhodes survives her. Tom has nailed up more lath than any one else in the his tory of Albany, millions of feet of them. In his best day he was said to be the most rapid in the city. Always a worthy citizen, he is now assisting in the paint store of one of his many relatives in Albany, and has a fund of old time Albany lore. Having worked in the con-3truction of a large number of the residences of the city as a lather he is familiar with their history, and somtimes of the owners. We recently asked him about the Madison Street school building, part of which has been torn down, and the rest will be during the summer. Cut in two for emergencies. "If you will go up in the belfrey you can find the record, which reads about like this: "This building was painted in August, 1894. Signed by Harry Miller, Bill Hedlcy, Frank unknown territory and a vague fear of the "reds." Committee sessions seem dominated by the belief of certalu members and certain army officers that the nation is menaced by a bolshevik revolution. Copeland ot New York, in Senate debate, last year, emphasized possibility of "internal trouble" and General MacArthur, chief of staff who drove out the 1932 bonus army, was always stressing preparation for the necessity of American soldiers subduing American citizens. Army manuals give instructions on how to attack mobs and in recent years troops have been concentrated nearer industrial centers. All this means, of course, that the army Is preparing against strikes and serious labor, troubles. Perhaps because It has nothing better to do.

The peace-lime army, la scattered over tho country now with the Idea that It can serve as a skeleton for a vast force and you'd have a hard time pulling It together. War plans call for an efficers' reserve corps and an enlisted men's reserve corps. You'll be Interested to know that the former has about 120,000 members and the latter about 6000. And next year you're likely to 'discover-vthat the army need P. Nuttl , Dannals- and "Maggie" White. As painting generally follows construction .it is easy to figure the date of the building. This was one building Tom didn't lath. His bid was $1.00.' A couple of itinerants bid 90c ahd-got the job. While bn the subject it may be said that the carpenters on the old Madison building were Scott Traynor and Mr. Camber. D. C. Schell was the architect. And further, as a part of the diversion the former building, earliest in. use, was moved to the present site of the Pate Creamery and was the Christian church until the present structure was erected, and then became a milk and butter factory. There were daughters in Mart Payne's second family. One became Mrs. Robert Torbet, former Albany -postmaster for two terms, the other was married and we understand Is residing in California. Mrs. Payne is now a resident of near Hillsboro, making her home on a farm belonging to her folk. With her' are her daughter, and husband, . Mr. and Mrs. Torbet, Mrs. Leslie Jones, wife of a .very worthy: young man, is residing here; She is a daughter of the Tor-bets. ; , ....... The other day while a cleanup was going' on in a deserted part of the 'Grocervdteria buildingl, (just where is not material, Mr. Lam-berty ran upon an ancient freight receipt issued by the Oregon-Cali fornia railroad, now the Southern Pacific, R. Kohler superintendent, W. B. Rice local agent, in 1883, hence nearly 53 years old, addressed to Peters & Stewart. This was a relic of the hardware business of Winn Peters and Claib Stewart,' awhile before Mr, Stewart became county clerk. The. firm was Peters & Sox, then Peters & Stewart, afterwards Stewart Sc Sox, the latter in business at the present site of the Grocerveteria a good many years, up to nearly the time Judge Stewart became county judge, afterwards postmaster. It illustrates how things get scattered and mussed up in the lapsing years. Billy Rice was quite a character here, a hunchback in. make- up, with a good head and genial disposition, gencrally liKea, ior-tunate in having a very capable wife, an operator herself, who car- rieri on for manv years after Billy's death, most of the time in the head office at Portland. An other aged relic was a Wells Fargo receipt for express in decorated form, somewhat like the present ones, dated in 1862. This -was found in the county clerk's' office when Judge Stewart was clerk, in some of the old trash of the office. Wells Fargo in those days' did an immense business, a financial force for many years before that. The total Albany business would be in large figures. Perhaps the most prominent agent here was Curtis B.

Another old-time relic is a tax receipt ' dated in 1852, for '.$2.77, in payment for the taxes on a farm of 842 acres. Our informant declined to give the name, not wishing to be mixed up in such a startling Believe It or Not story. Those were evidently days of economy, when the rights of the taxpayer were considered.

"What about what?" "It's easy enough to know who Logan means. What about it? If there's going to be a wedding I'd like to know about it." Toby took the newspaper and read it for herself.

The stnr was a radiant and graceful dancer a dynamic little creature who look ed scarcely older than Toby herself. She sung almost as well as she danced and her costumes were dazzingly lovely. Toby said over her 'shoulder-to Hillver, "She's beautiful, isn't she?" He agreed. Toby, intent on the scene behind the footlights, was not aware that Hillycr's eyes were on her more often than they were on the stage. She went to dinner with him twice in the week that followed and to a concert. On Sunduy they drove to a famous inn across the Hudson. Toby enjoyed that, too. She hadn't rciilized that spring had actually arrived. Trees were spreading their leaves and fields were deep green. Tho sunshine was warm und yellow. She said, "It must be wonderful to live in the country." Would you like that?" More than unything I can im agine. Think of looking at trees like those' (Toby swept one arm in a wide gesture toward a picturesque group at the right) "and think of being where you can really see the sky and walk on grass with no 'Keep Off signs. And being able to see things growing und maybe plant them. I'd have a garden if I lived in the country. And I'd have a dog no. two of them. And all day long I'd slay out in the sunshine " Hillyer laughed. "You make it sound attractive," he said, "vet 1 imagine there are hundreds of girls who have all those things who would be glad to change places with you." Then they d be making a mis take." "1 have a country place," Hill ycr's tunc was sober. "It's in Con necticut. I don't seem to be able to spend much time there " In New York, she knew, he lived at a hotel. A very elegant hotel wnere everything he could pos sibly want was supplied him. I should think you d hke being in 'the country," Toby told him. . "I might, if there were someone there to make it seem, like home. Most of the time it doesn't scorn worth the bother to make tho trio out there. Celling old, 1 guess" Hillyer had often made refer ences to his age. He did it Jokingly, yet Toby felt (hat the fact thai the years were .creeping on dis turbed him. She didn't know how. old he was. At first she had thought of him as definitely mid dle-aged, but now that she knew him better he seemed younger. He was leanly-btiilt. athletic. She knew ho liked sports, though he seemed to have little time for them. He might be 40 or he might be closer to Ml. That, of course. was old to Toby. It was a day or so nfter that drive into the country thai Har riet found Len Logan s column in the evening newspaper and show-it to Toby. The columnist had written: What soap manufacturer whose initials are 'J. H.' is being seen about the hot spots these spring evenings with the oh-so-prcttv young thing whose picture appears m tne soap advertisements? Al though the report has bee, denied. friends hint that the cotrplo will middle-aisle it within a few weeks." Harriet put down the newspaper -BY RODNEY DUTCHER- 'Logan's paragraph, it was the only one Jay Hillyer made. The gossip columnist seemed less important ofter that, and Toby decided to forget his barbs. When anyone said onything about the reported romance she laughed and was surprised to find that this attitude semed to discourage questioners. She had more time with Harriet these days. Clyde Sabin was away on another trip. "Maybe," Harriet said, "the next time he goes, I'll go with him." She was buying her trousseau and insisted that Toby must accompany her on many of the shopping trips. Harriet was a shrewd shopper, but now she wanted advice. Gowns were selected and sent home, only to be returned. She couldn't decide between the blue negligee and the yellow one. And what about shoes? Did the ones with the buckles or the straps look best?

And anyone who suggests economy or budget-balancing In that direction In. sure to be called un-American and Communistic. The Senate army bill appropriates 1384.699.619 for military purposes and Roosevelt's budget estimates t620.1S4.077 for the navy. If you're still impolite enough to ask why. the navy can give you a more definite answer than the army, which seems rather vague as to whom It Is going to fight. The nvy Is sure that it's grlng to fight the Japanese sooner or later. That Idea Is shared by some officials In othet quarters.
