Pacific Railroad Company be- tiliqeen Kalama and the Oregon shore, has been discontinued after continuous service. . One of the most vivid incidents : in the history of the ferry service‘ was the record breaking run a ,ross the river from Hunters oint during the'Seattle fire. Se- attle had called for help from the Portland fire department: and a. fire engine had been loaded on a ‘box car and started for Seattle. The ferry Tacoma was waiting at HuntersPointwhen the train arrived, transfer was quickly made and the trip across the river in approximately ten minutes, half .the time needed for an ordinary i run.. .When the ferry reached the dock. in Kalama the train switch- ed to the main line and sped up . the tracks at sixty miles an hour, ‘ fast speed. in those days. The first railroad was built over; the Cascade mountains in Wash-.I lngton State by the Northern Pa—I cific in 1888. It crosses at Stamp-i ede Pass (elevation 3,925 feet) where, at a later date, a 9,824— lift to The its an elevation of 2,837 feet. feet ,tunnel lowered Sound across Stevens Pass (elcva- ii? i ltion 4,061 feet) in 1898. 400 foot tunnel lowered the grade to 3,375-feet elevation, and in grade was again lower- ed to 2,881 feet by construction, of a tunnel 7.79 miles long. Sno- qualmic Pass (elevation 3,004 feet) was used by the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific‘ Railway in building into Seattle in 1909. An 11,890-foot tunnel, completed in 1915, lowered itsI grade to 2,564 feet. On the north bank of the Co- lumbia River, the Spokane, Port- land and Seattle line; jointly con- trolled by the Great Northern and Northern connects eastern Washington with Coast at Vancouver. Douglas .Fir (scientific name, “Pseudotsuga taxifolia”) is the most common tree in Western Washington. In size, majesty and volume per acre it is in a class by itself. Besides being the chief timber tree of the Northwestern United States, it is considered the strongest of the soft woods, being straight-grained, tough and ‘yel quite easily worked. Three languages were us'cd in creating the scientific name for Douglas Fir: "‘fPseudo“ is' the Greek wordi'rfor false; ."‘Tsuga" Japanese for hemlock; “taxi” comes from “taxious,” Latin for vow; “folio.” is Latin for leaf. Thus “Pseudotsuga taxifolia” means literally: “a false hemlock with a leaf like a yew.” To complete the puzzle, Doug- las fir was first known abroad as Oreg‘on'Pine and is still mar- keted as such although the Unith States Forest has adopted the lame “Douglas Fir." Actually, the tree is neither pine nor fir but an individual species. central ‘ Pacific and u the .Biggest users of pig iron and scrap iron and steel in the 22 principal industries in'thc mach— in‘ery group are the manufacturers of tractors, according to the Cen- sus.
