And then he will show you how ' White
.'Salmon river rises in a glacier on the south
west side of Mount Adams, where its waters
can be seen glistening beneath the snow and
ice; how it flows underground until it reaches
the snow line, going west, then southeast, then
three miles south, and then two miles south
east, then south behaving altogether as If it
had quite lost its head. Perhaps it has ab
sorbed some of the populistic notions of its na
tive state. At any rata it goes round and
found, making almost a complete circle of 25
miles to. Trout lake, where It apparently re
gains Its reason and rushes headlong south, in
the strclghtest, most direct line possible, for
.Oregon, as though bent upon getting cut of the
state ol Washington without delay. ,
Stost people, the Original Investigator goes
on to say and there is a touch of scorn in his
voice imagine that because the road that runs
alongside of the White Salmon is full of wind
tugs and crooks, the river is also full of wind
ings and crooks. .But this Is not at all the case.
The rood is as crochety as a woman, but the
river ia as blunt and straightforward as the
typical old Oregonian. In this respect, continues-the
Original Investigator, with an air of
wisdom, it differs greatly from the ordinary
mountain stream, which pursues quite a tor
tuous course, Really the Whfte Salmon is a
tery estsaordinary river. :; ?
Its namef That is derived from the pale
color of the fish found in Its waters. These are
M, worn-out salmon. After they have
spawned their flesh turns white, and they are
so weak that it is an easy matter to catch them.
For this reason the Indians used to flock to the
river in large numbers every year in the fish
ing season, ill order to dry enough fish to last
through the winter. Many interesting relics
have foeuu found in this famous old camping
ground of the Klickitats, and the collector of
joweled Indian arrowheads who visits this
spot, at the river's mouth, will be able to add
considerably to his stock of curios. .m
Home Burned, but Scalps Saved.
It was near this spot that E. S. Joslyn lived,
the first white settler In the section, who made
his home there about 45 years ' ago, and was
burned out twice by the Indians. Once in the
earlv '50s his wife crossed the river to find a
squ.iw whom she needed to help her wash,
She caught sight of groups of unfamiliar,
fiercely painted faces among the braves it was
about the time of the CascadeB massacre but
her suspicions were not .aroused till she re
ceived a significant sign from "Indian John
son," whom old pioneers will remember as a
faithhil and valued friend to the whites; With
out further parleying she took her departure,
aud, recrossing to the spot where she had tied
her horse, found that animal snorting and
plungiug.wlldly, with distended nostrils and
nlooiisk& eyes in a frenzy of excitement at
something he had seen. Thoroughly terrified
by this time, she leapod upon his back, and
they together went bounding , toward home
with the speed of the wind.
There Mrs.Joslyn found her husband, al
ready warned, ready to flee for his life and
merely awaiting her arrival. The family left
everything behind them, and, only a few min
utes after they were out of sight, theft house
was plundered and burned to the ground, amid
the w hoops and yells of the Indians. ' After
ward the Jostyns returned and made another
home,, which was also burned. Their place is
now owned by A, R. Byrket. . "

Famous Jewett Farm.
Barry Jywett is ji pioneer of 25. years ago, : He
has boon extensively engaged in the nursery
business and has always been a good friend of
the lujiiaus, who call him "Man oi God" sag

Tuo view up aud down the river from these
beetling rocks is one of wild grandeur.

Pioneer- Woman's Indomitable : Pluck.
At least one illustration of her pluck in over
coming difficulties has become known fron
one end of the state of Washington to the other.
About six years ago she invited the state
Grange to meet at her home. - Just before the
time of the meeting, the house was burned to
the ground. Not a whit daunted, she put her
wits and hands to work and, in less than two
weeks she and her husband entertained the
Grange in royal style, feeding several hundred
people on barbecued ox, lemon pie, strawber
ries and the like. The grange women of the
neighborhood helped her serve these to her
guests.; 8ho found beds for over a hundred
persons on this occasion,, and made much of
the bedclothing hersalf. - -
The country that borders on the White
Salmon river, like every other paradise, shows
the trail of the serpent. Rattlesnakes are plen
tiful there, as well as strawberries. The first
white settlers, found them in great numbers,
and the situation was rendered worse by the
superstitious fancies of the Klickitat Indians,
who refused to extirpate them, on the ground
that every rattlesnakewas a departed chief of
great. renown, who would curse them if they
did him harm a queer form a of -doctrine of
transmigration of souls. The Indians have the
same superstition regarding the coyote and the
buzzard. At present the rattlesnakes are
chiefly confined to the fastnesses of a certain
mountain which a body need not climb unless
he wish to and a'' sequestered Rattlesnake
creek, where they have set up an exclusive
oligarchy of their own, which no one cares to
uisturo. ; t .. ... , , ......
Eight miles from the mouth of the White
Salmon, one comes to the falls, where the foam
ing river, seen against a dark background of
fir trees, plunges headlong down Its rocky bed
a distance of 20 feet or more. From here on
the climb to Trout lake about 1800 feet above
sea level is over an easy grade, through dense
forests as yet undosecratod by fire or ax.
Sportsman's Paradise.
In their shady thickets, cougars, wild cats,
coyotes and bears have their lair. Wild cana
ries, several species of snow bird, magpies,
black birds, blue lays and hawks make their
home in the tree tops, while pheasant, grouse
and a few quail are in the brush below, to
tempt the sportsman. Most of the heavy tim
ber along the river Is owned by R. D. Cameron
In some places the sides of the canyon rise ab
ruptly to a height of-several hundred feet.
' It was in such a spot as this that the first ex
ploring party from White Salmon to Trout lake
crossed the river 15 years ago, at which time
the Trout lake country was first explored and
settled. The lake itself is really only a widen
ing of Trout creek, which runs through a com
paratively open ' country into the White
Salmon. The-falls of Trout creek on the land
of August Wagnitz, who controls the mill
power of the little torrent, are fast becoming
popular camping and picnic" grounds with
Portland people. Old settlers say that since
they first came, 15 years ago, the lake has filled
up considerably. It is a beautiful marshy ex
panse of water, half a mile in length by one
fourth of a mile wide, and very shallow, being
only about seven or eight feet deep. It lies
about 10 miles from the snow line of Mount
Adams,, which rises grandly to the north of it.
There are two other lakes In this Section
Steamboat lake, where Trout stream heads,
containing a mound like the bow of a boat, and
Fish lake, which is extraordinarily full of very
large trout, 800 to 400 in a school. Very few
anglers resort there, however, since the lake is
too fur away and inaccessible to make it possi
ble to preserve the fish until they can return to
the settlement. - -
'r' Profitable Dairy Business. ''
The countrjr about Trout lake is fast growing
famous for its dairies, its cheese factories and
stockraising. In the dairy business the profit
averages f35 a head, though 440 a head was
made last year by one dairy. The settlers,
numbering about 35 families, are principally
thrifty Germans and Swiss. Peter Stoler, who
arrived in .'80, was the first pioneer. On the
sidos of Mount Adams are great sheep ranges.
This year 70,000 sheep were pastured on the
south slope, between the Cispus and White
Salmon, and 135,000 more on the north slope,
between the north bank of the Muddy and the
"divide" between the' Cispus and White
Salmon. - . . ' . .. ; :
- The ice-caves are probably the best-known
feature of this section. One of these is 12 or 14
feet in height, and contains thousands of shin
ing icicles, from one to two feet thick, the ice
floor being about the same thickness. The
sparkling beauty of the effect may easily be im
agined. The water, trickling down through
the top of the cave, froze, this year, In July.
There used to be massive columns of ice ex
tending from floor to roof, but these have been
cut away by practical-minded dairymen, who
used them for preserving butter.
The large lava cave, which is nearly a mile
ill length, 50 feet high and 25 feet broad, is fully
as interesting as the ice caves. It has been
known only three years. The opening is from
the top, a 50-foot ladder Carrying one down in
to what seems to the timorous stranger the in
fernal pit Itself. A mile of Cimmerian dark
ness stretches before him, . What a capital lair
it would make for wild beasts ; a bear, or a cou
gar, or a wildcat, might easily make the
descent from the ground above, What if a
malicious Indian, one of the hundreds gallop
ing over the country, should come along and
take that ladder away,' leaving the explorer 50
feet away from sunlight and happiness, -down
in this musty blackness? - " ... ' 'i
"Expansion is strong ", in the
East,-" : says Senator , b'imon, who
has just returned from Washing
ton. ."Our government has taken
a forward position . in the far East
and we cannot retreat without dis
honor, ; The ; American people
would never : sanction the surren
der of a foot of ground won1 by our
arms in the East. ' Neither will
they indorse - the political party
whose leaders propose to throw
away the vast opportunities which
possession of the Philippines : has
opened to our commerce in the
Jiast. . The American people are a
living nation, not a dying one.
They are determined to have, their
share of the trade which the awak
ening of Asia is sure to create, and
no man or combination of men can
turn them back. They are not go
ing to be turned out of China any
more than they were turned out of
Oregon more than 50 years ago.
1 iound republicans generally
in favor of expansion and the demo
crats divided. I should judge that
about half the democrats " I met
were expansionists and the other
half anti -expansionist. ; The ex
pansion democrats whom I met are
not going to follow Bryan into the
so-called anti-imperialist '.'.'camp.

ble, that if the Spanish war had
been a war of our own seeking, we
should ' now have the " democrats

talked are determined to have an
unequivocal declaration on the' sub
j ect, to th e end that gold shall be
firmly and perpetiially established
as the monetary standard oi the
United States. I found a strong
sentiment in favor of congress
making an immediate settlement
of this question. '
"Eastern republicans are hopeful
of success in the presidential elec
tion next year. The indications
are that Bryan will be the demo-
cratnj nominee. If he ; is . norm
nated, the republican candidate, no.

elected. Bryan and Bryanism are
lining up for. their final . overthrow
next year. They will face a united
prosperous ' and ' happy country
and their defeat will be overwhelm

ought to be a lasting object-lesson
to all who seek, to obstruct national
progress and menace the material
welfare of the country."
The Blue Mountain , American

now one of the brightest, ablest and
most prosperous Weekly newspapers
in the United States, 'considering
