Sammy is the barrel man; he performs that slick trick that delights audiences during the Brahma fighting, while Gene is the "cape artist."

Local Indian Names, Trails and Legends By NELS BRUSETH (Expansion of remarks made at Pioneer Reunion) Stoloquamish is the name of an Indian tribe, rather than the name of a river, Stol means river; oqua a group; ubsh or mish, people. Stol refers to a certain type of river -- easily navigated, quiet water. The Stoloquabsh domain in- cluded mostly the North Fork, but extended to near Granite Falls on the South Fork, al- though this branch and valley had several other names. Down river, it extended two or three miles. Below that were the Quadsaks, or Quadsak - beuf, whose territory extended to the Port Susan and Stanwood flats. Reverting to the modern rendi- tion of the tribal and river name, the Stillaguamish head- quarters were at Trafton. Other more transient camps were lo- cated at Hazel and Squire Creek. They joined the Sauks there, where they had a big common i camE near the Bowman place. i The shortest l~ortage between the Stillaguamish and Sauk was from the Niederprum place on squire creek to the latter river (Sauk) just east of Darrington, though there was another port- age from "River's End" on the Stillaguamish, following low ground along the foot of Northi Mountain. ! The Stillaguamish had always] had a settlement at the forks ofI the river, near Arlington. Thisi was a sort of cross-roads of river i navigation and overland trails.!

F.F.A. Team Competes at Lynden The Arlington F.F.A. Dairy Judging team journeyed to Lyn- den last Friday to compete in the cattle judging contests. They won second place in judging the Guernsey class. This is the first contest of a series in which the Arlington boys will compete this year. Canned Salmon Prices Rolled Back by 0PS Canned sah on prices will be rolled back as much as eight per cent at the retail level under a new regulation issued my the Office of Price Stabilization, Seattle OPS officials announced this week. The reduction will become ef- fective in groceries in the Ar- lington area within a month. "This is an important rollback because it affects an item which makes up a substantial part of the food budget of many famil- ies:" Leo W~isfield, Seattle district OPS director, said. The rollback is effective Aug- ust 8 at the packer level.

Some were moved testants and judging will be as up the river to new camps, some follows: 25 points for poise and burned down. Homes were so personality, 25 points for being built that they could easily be a good scholar and 50 points for dismantled and moved, reason, why they want to go to Indian cemeteries werenot college. The candidates are from burial grounds. The dead were 12 SChool restricts in King ~nd laid in canoes, hung among Snohomish counties, tree~, ~uch a cemetery was on a wooded Bench near the river in the Haller section of Arlington ---just S.E. of the present rail- road bridge. All of the corpses were taken out of this and other small cemeteries and buried on a high bench north of the river near the main camp at Trafton --this on order of the white set- lers. The Quadsaks took theirs down river and buried them in Port Susan bay. The Kent's Prairie Camp Another camp near Arlington was at Kent's Prairie ("Ba Quab"), which means treeless lane or prairie. This was a small camp; generally only some old people lived there to guard the place from unwholesome intrud- ers. The Ba Quab was rich in, edible roots ana berries, especial- ly ferr~s, whose frond sprouts were used as greens, or cooked in stews of fislu or venison. The overland trail to salt wa- ter passed through Ba Quab, skirted the hills at Edgecomb, passed Kellogg Marsh on the East and swung west to Ceda. This was the main land trail, others h~ranched off from same. Sauks Visited Fur Traders "Long Age" ~ome ~auk Indians once told me that long ago, probably about 1923-26, some of their people came through Quo-Alko and Ba Quab on their way to south Puget Sound camps Of white men who bought furs. This seems to be substantiated by an- nals of Hudson's Bay company; also that white men came same trail, looking for furs, shortly thereafter. ~'erhaps the first white exnlor'- er of the Stillag~amish was Sam- u~I tta,eo~k, who came Up the ltivot ft0m Stanwood in 1854.

This was told me by Alexander Spithell, whom I visited at his home in Marysville some 45 years ago. He was in his 90's then, but robust in body and keen of memory. He had worked at a spar camn near Utsalady in '53 ~r '54, and in latter Tear met Hancock on his .return from trip up river. He said Hancock appeared to be very intelligent and was a good narrator. 1872 Railroad Surveyors In 1872 Northern Pacific "sur- veyors, on their way from the Sauk to Puget Sound. stoDned over night at The Forks or Ska- balko, coming down the North Fork by canoe and thence over- land to salt water at Port Gard- ner.
