LOST LAKE TRIP
STILL DIFFICULT
Iiee. llic only niud to Lout Lake
country U th one leading from this
place. The distance from here to
Lost l.ake is about 15 miles. There
art' ten miles of poor road anil five
miles of trail. Four yearH ago a for
est ranger cut out a road that for two
seasons allowed teams to get In and
out, but the winter snows have 1
the road in such a condition that peo
ple are advised not to attempt mak
ing the way w ith rigs of uny character.
The Mt. Hood Railroad Company
now extending its line from Dee to its
b It ( f timber in the vicinity of the
lake. Men are working on a trestle
that will cross a canyon a mile south
or Dee. Its length will be about 6U0
r-et and it will be 34 feet high. This,
when completed, will mean four miles
of new road that will be In operation
before the summer season opens. This
will make the distance from the end
of the line to Lost Lake 11 mill'
Those wishing to get Into the lake lo
cality can go to the terminus from
Hood lUver and then walk In or get
a horse and pack In.
I lu re is a big belt of land produc
Ing huckleberries, which ripen in Aug
ust, and at that time of the year camp
Ing is at its best. Hundreds of peopl
go In at that time. tast year possibly
fit) wagon loads of people came to the
end of the road before knowing that
they would have to abandon their rigs
The camping In the vicinity of the
lake Is Ideal, the fishing good and the
hunting fair. Between the lake and
Mt. Hood are some canyons seldom
penetrated by men and the wild anl
mals seek this quiet place.
The completion of the Mt, Hood
Railroad to the lakp will be the meant
of conveying thousands of visitors to
a place little known by Orcgonians.

INTEREST IN THE
LIBRARY GROWING
Although this is the period of great
est activity on the ranches, the circu
lation of books at the library is still
Increasing. There is scarcely a day
In which there are not new registered
borrow ers.
Melieviug that the library is not only
a cultural institution, but that it should
bring return,! In dollars and cents to
Its users, the library is constantly add
ing to us collection books that can
gh'H the rancher and the business man
definite help along their linen of work
Requests for the worth while hooks
are frequently made and books are
continually reserved and mailed to the
different stations or to individuals. If
to individuals the library pays postage
one way, the individual pays return
postage. The librarian is eager ti
make the library a living thing. Re
quests for such books are in line. II
we naven t them on our shelves we
will get them.
Mothers' clubs have been organized
in Odell and Oak drove Is next in
line witli one ' planned for the fall
The librarian has had the pleasure of
furnishing books along certain lines
of study.
A reading hour is to be established
at I'ine drove. Oak drove and Mt.
Mood, migrants for the summer are
being made by the librarian and the
work will be in charge of interested
young women of the community. It
is just such things as this that make
the work of a librarian worth while.
LEPER COLONY TEMPORARY
Washington Member Assured Dia
mond Point is Not Menace.
Washington. Some consternation
and uneasiness has been occasioned
by the presence of lepers at Diamond
rolnt, Wash., and the fear that the
public health niiil marine hospital ser
vice was to make tills not only a per
manent establishment but to send
lepers there from other states. The
feeling became so Intense that Sena
tor Jones and the other members of
the Washington delegation were sp
pealed to to have the nintter Investi
gated. As a result of this agitation both
the senator and Representative John
son called on Surgeon-General Itlue
and went over the subject with him
and were assured that there was no
Intention to make this a permanent
station.
The Washington members were In
formed by Ir. Hlue that the marine
hospital service was endeavoring to
find a place off the coast of California,
and as soon ns this was located and
fitted up ns an abiding place for these
unfortunates they would be sent to
this permanent colony.

It is customary for ck-cti icity users to question the accur
acy of meters and to make, many objec tions to tlieir use. Tlie
most common ones are that the electric companies have some
way of making the meter run taster than the amount of current
that passes through it or that the meter continues to run wheth
er current is beiiifj consumed or not. Of course any such ideas
are nonsensical and are founded on ignorance of tlie electrical
business of which the public probably knows less than of any
other industry. As a matter of fact an electric meter is one of
the most accurate pieces of mechanism ever invented, is thor
oughly tested before it leaves the factory and also before bein
placed in position by the company uiny; it. Occasionally one
of these wonderful little "juice" registers jroes vronr, but
then nothing made by mankind or man himself to say nothing
of even lovely woman ever attains absolute perfection.
Now a meter simply consumes and registers the entire
amount of current used for lighting or power passing through
it and if it does go wrong either runs slower or stops. The rea
son a meter will run for a minute or so after the current is turn
ed olT is because there is a disk in it containing a magnet that
must find the center of attraction before stopping and the disk
turns either forward or back until this point is readied. If it
turns backward the registration is nothing and if forward so
small as to be scarcely noticeable.
Probably the greatest dissatisfaction that we have to con
tend with comes from the fact that very few consumers are
able to take a reading from tlieir meter accurately and many
can not take a reading at all. For this reason we have just
mailed a little booklet to all of our patrons and will be pleased
to supply any one who has not received one, telling in the sim
plest language how you may learn to read your meter, all about
its operation and other information of value to the electricity
user.
J It is difficult for most consumers to understand why a met
er is not always installed with the dial at zero, or in other
words, registering nothing. When a new meter is installed
it is set at zero, but meters that have been put into service
whether in use or idle are never set back to the starting point
as the ordinary consumer would not use the entire registration
of 10,000 kilowatt hours in ten years and the work of re-setting
800 to 1,000 meters every time they are changed is a waste of
time and therefore would be an added expense. A meter may
be taken from one patron today. registering l,000,we will say for
illustration, and installed with another one registering the same
figures. The reading is taken at 1,000 when it is installed and
at the end of the month when the reading is again taken the
1,000 is simply deducted from the amount of current consumed.
Employes of the company reading meters are especially in
structed in regard to being accurate and to always give patrons
the benefit of any possible inaccuracy.
Ye believe that the public by familiarizing itself with
the points we have outlined and also those contained in the
booklet already mentioned will do away with any misunder
standing or prejudice it may have against electric meters and
be willing to co-operate with us in seeing that they get the best
of service coupled with the greatest economy on a fair basis.
