VOL. 1 No. 11. THE CASCADE MOUNTAINS. Rcsiders in cities but seldom enjoy the truly grand iiml beautiful of Nu turc's handiwork. During the early Summer months a ten days1 trip into the Caseadc range of mountains will bhow anyone more of the beauties of nature than a twenty years residence in an over-crowded and smoky city. Our nrtist has, on this page, portrayed a scene which once viewed will never be effaced from memory's tablets. Inline diately where the snow (Winter) leaves off, Summer appears in all its glory. Wild flowers of the most exquisite per fume and of all hues are seen every where, such as would be ornamental in our most tastily kept city gardens. BIOGRAPHICAL. William Hume, the pioneer salmon packer on the Columbia river, was horn in Wadeville, Maine, in 1S31, and com menced active life ten as boat-puller for his father, who was a fisherman on the Kenebec river for sixty years. Hearing the wonder ful stories about salmon in the Sacra mento river, young II. left his native town at the age of twenty-two, arriv ing in Sacramento in 1S53 where he at once started fishing, wherein he was very successful, finding a ready market for all the salmon he caught at $2 per dozen, although sometimes receiving as high as $3 and $4 for a single fish. Mr. II. being an excellent marksman and fontl of hunting, used to often, dur ing the Winter season, indulge in that sport and finding that money could be made nt it em ployed bis time fishing in Sum mer and hunt ing in Winter. Ducks at whole sale then sold at 20 cents a pair and geese at $1 a pair. Mr. II. has withaio-lh. gun and four ounces of shot, brought down 11s many as 81 ducks at a single shot and as high as 65 geese. For shooting on the wing, be used an 8 -lb. gun and one m. of shot, bagging from 20 to 20 head per day. Besides other game, Mr. II.'s winter shooting figured up 4,000 to 8,000 head of ducks and geese In 1S64, Mr. II., his brother George and Mr. at the early age of Ilapgood, started canning sal mo n on a small scute at Washington, opposite Sacra mento. At this place they stop ped for two years. During his hunt ing excursions, Mr. II. often fell in with old trap pers who related to him wonderful stories about the amount of game and fish in the then far oft Co lumbia river, and in 1S65, George Hume started for the Columbia, lo cating and secur ing Eagle Cliff. Win, and Mr. Ilapgond followed, and whilst William did the actual fishing, George and Mr. Ilapgood attended to the canning. At that time II. N. Nice and Joachime Reed were the principal fishermen on the river. They, how ever, preserved their lish by salting. In the year 1866 the actual canning of salmon was commenced on the Colum bia by George and William Hume and A. S. Ilapgood, under the firm name of Ilapgood, Hume & Co.
