Those who care for a pleasant
outing should not fail to ride to
the end of the C. & A. railway
before the inclement weather
sets in. The distance from Cor
vallis is between eighteen and
twenty-five miles," is made by
C. & A. flyer in about an hour
and a half, and the trip down
through the field of flowers and
grains ends . high on the moun
tain side amid the great forests
a few miles beyond Alpine.
Just at present, the C. & A. is
not running Pullmans and the
road-bed would not take a prize
for its smoothness, but onen
lat-cars have the main line ob
servations beaten a city block,
and the undulations of the track
, combine with the railroad triD
all the delights of an excursion
on the ocean's billows. At the
sides of the track, held blossoms
tap the sides of the car, and oats,
wheat and the Scottish thistle
may be earnered as the flyer
speeds along. The view from
"the flat cars is unobstructed and
one scarcely ever finds a finer
outlook than that from the middle
of the valley westward to the
base, or bencnes, of the coast
range. From the junction, one
mile north of Monroe, to the end
of the line, the trip is o'er hill

Alpine and ends up where the
big donkey engine is handling
tremendous logs as if they were
but toothpicks. There, one may
watch the operations of a log
ging camp, or may wander about
in the timber exploring this
mountain dell, or idling by the
babbling brook dreaming of days
gone by or more glorious one
yet to come. If one has a good
dinner along, it may be eaten
in shade thick enough to cut and
by the side of streams flowing
clear and : sparkling water
scarcely less cold than ice.
There is ample room for games,
for the hammocks, and all the
conditions desired for a first

not yet been wholly distorted

: A - number of parties have
made the trip this summer and
all have returned , enthusiastic
over it as a delightful one-day
affair.' The last aggregation of
picnicers to go out over the road
made the trip Wednesday as the
guests of Mrs. Stephen Carver,
wife of the promoter, president
and builder of the road, the party
being made up as follows: Mr.

At the present time a crew of
thirteen men is working at the
head of the Carver line getting
out timber. Contractors runninor

cars. Wednesday was a bad day
with them and they got out but
little more than 12000 feet. Some
days they land as much as 100,
000 or 120,000 feet. Those who
have never seen a logging engine
at work would find a trip to the
end of the Carver line a very in
teresting and instructive one.
The engine there drags logs of

When riding on the Carver

store that will compare more

would not be out of place in the
