taken all the exercise consistent with
my years and strength. As I grew
older I assumed harder tasks, but I
always have been eager for this
kind of life. I love the open, and all
my life I have walked great distances,

LANDSCAPE NEAR ODELL
Writing from Odell, a lover of na
ture sends us the following description:
Sunday, looking up Neal Creek
Gorge, through which w inds the road
to the Upper Valley, appeared this pic
ture: In the foreground the pale yel
low leaves of the apple orchards;' next
the dark green of the fir and pine
stretching across the mouth of the
canyon; then on the mountain slopes
to the left the dark brown of the oaks
made crisp by the autumn frosts, be
yond this a bank of white fog sitting
low in the gorge; and beyond all this
the mountains farther away were col
ored with bluish purple; on top of the
mountain rested a long narrow cloud
through which a spot of sunshine had
The coloring was beyond all efforts
of camera or painter's brush to catch,
or pen of man to describe.
It will be man's dangerous privilege
to challenge the fair sex at the polls,
nd. If he wants to be real mean, make
each feminine voter declare her ago.
Peter Kuehnling of The Dalles, who
has been working in conjunction with
Samuel Hill in the interest of the Col
umbia River road, was in the city the
last of the week on his return from a
conference with the Multnomah coun
ty officials In Portland and declared
that about 100 prisoners are to be put
to work within a short time building
that portion of the road in Multnomah
county. Mr. Kuehnling said:
"Mr. Hill and I bad a conference
with Judge Cleeton of Multnomah
county this week about the uncomplet
ed portion of the road in that county
and I am happy to be able to proclaim
the good news to our people here that
that road will be started Immediately.
The only reason why Judge Cleeton
has not started the work before this
was on account of the Injunction
which was served on the Hood River
county court by the O.-W. R. & N. Co.
He thought ,or was of the opinion,
that if that road could not be finished
no other road could be found around
that locality. In a talk which I had
with Mr. Kay of Hood River some
time ago he assured me that it was
not difficult to find a road there and
that it is merely a matter of expense.
Upon hearing this the judge made up
his mind to Immediately start the ball
rolling and within a short time we
shall see about 100 prisoners from
the Multnomah county jail at work
on the road through one of the most
magnificent valleys In the world. Mr.
Hill has personally located a road
which at no time will have more
than a five per cent grade and in addi
tion has offered them the services of
his engineer, Major Bowlby, free of
charge. Mr. Bowlby is perhaps, next
to Mr. Hill himself, one of the best
road experts In our western country.
If that road is not ready within one
year from this date then I shall be
very much disappointed."
