UPPER VALLEY NEWS
FIGHT THEIR WAY
IN BITTER STORM
A party consisting of Shtney liab
son, .Mr. anil Mrs. i.ouis .M'tieu, .mihh
(Jearhardt, Kdward Harrand Frank
L. Keating detled the elements and
successfully luade the trip from Hood
Kiver to Parkdale through one of
the severest snow storms ever ex
perlenced In the valley. They left
Tuesday morning during a blinding
snowstorm, which, before reaching
their destination had turned to rain
and sleet. r airly good progrews
was made until the foot of Booth
hill was reached, where they found
tifty-four Inches of snow and the
road unbroken. Further efforts to
proceed were thought useless by the
driver but Habson, who was person
ally conducting the expedition,
thought otherwise, and securing a
pair of skis from a neighboring house
he set out to Investigate before or
derlng a retreat. As this was his
first experience lu doing the ski act
he was consequently a little nervous
and In making the descent he some
how turned his toes ten minutes to
two, a movement that gave a spread
eagle effect, causing a very ungrace
fill termination to his reconnolterlng
trip. After being rescued from his
cold storage iuhHUai he called for
volunteers to help him break the
trail. Schell and Iiarr said they
were willing to follow lu the foot
steps of so able a leader. Keating
was left In charge of the mall uud the
females which were part and parcel
of this expedition. After advancing
about half a mile, one noble leader
began to feel the effet ts of his labor
and began removing his wearing
apparel. He removed his overcoat
and had only gone a short distance
before he was down to his waistcoat
and declared "If It were not for the
mock modesty of tills modern civiliz
ation I would go still further."
When about two-thirds of the hill
had lieen ascended the horses refused
to proceed unless further concessKius
were made. The party gladly ac
ceded to their demands and all va
cated the sleigh. Miss (ierhardt, a
prepossessing young lady from Port
land, was not prepared to combat
fifty-five inches of snow with a pair
of open faced rubbers as her only
shoe covering. The alert leader,
noticing her predicament at once re
moved a pair of long stocklugs that
he was wearing and gallantly In
sisted upon her accepting them. The
summit of Booth hill being reached
they all were glad to resume their j
places In the sleigh for the down
ward journey, which was slow and j
without event. I'pon reaching Mt.
Hood It was decided to put up for:
the night. The next morning the
journey was resumed and as the
sleigh ' pulled up at Parkdale the
crowd assembled there rent the air!
with a mighty shout for their mail
