(This space donated as a public service by Simpson Timber Co.) 'Phere is no mystery attached to the naming of Dalby creek a tribulary of the South Fork of the Skokc.mish River. Nor was it name:d for any place or person in Sweden. Three quarters of a cent- ury ago William Owen Dalhy ind his father-in-law. David Henry Loosley took up a homestOad with limbo1 claim rights in the wilder- ness of that area. The two men assisted by young Edwin J. Dalby and David H. Dal- by, sons of William O. Dalby, cleared a site on the property and also built a stout log cabin, which they occupied when at work on the project. Young Ed Dalby--later a Seattle newspaper columnist for' many years, spent an entire summer when just 16 with his dog Don as sole companion In the evenings as the youth sat before the log cabin with his dog, before a camp- fire he noted an eerie luminous glow which seemed to radiate from a certain spot in the distance. This was more noticeable on dark nights. The mystery \\;vas cleared up when the chemistry of fox-fire was explained, the mysterious glow coming from an old eerad snag m a swampy area. A few years later an act of Con- gress declared that entire area as a National Forest. now the Olym- pic National Forest Reserve. So the Dalby and Loosley family had to accept their loss as best they could. However the stream in which young Ed fished for trout so long ago was named for the family--and who were prominent Union pioneers. The name is of Norwegian ex- traction-- later English Dal -- meaning dell or valley--'by' a small town or village. The Traveling Pinochle Club will meet Saturday evening at Dayton Hall.
