Is but one lone, solitary, single, unprotect
ed man Jn the entire party, and he is a
reporter sent out by his paper on the
expedltlo'n. He reports a most pleasant
and agreeable Journey.
There are several well-known teachers
In the party. Some are veterans and some
beginners. Their trip across the country
has been productive of many odd Inci
dents. The first night out from Boston brought
the most exciting adventure of the tour.
One of the members occupying an upper
berth was puzzled how to get out In the
morning, finally solving her troubles by
grasping the bellrope firmly, and reached
the floor, all unconscious that she had

Has Taught Fifty Years.
Miss Underwood, the veteran of the
.party, celebrated her fiftieth anniversary
In one school. In Coddington. Quincy.
Mass.. last April. A remarkable circum
stance is that she also received her own
elementary education in the very school
where she was afterward to teach for
Huch a long term. She has lost, during
the period, only two days on account of
sickness, and in all only two more days
on account of funerals In the family. She
tenches the S and 8-year-old grade, and
though often tempted by higher salaries
to take other grades and go to other
echools. she has held this position
throughout. She is probably the best
known woman in Quincy, receiving at
her anniversary a purse of $500 in gold,
subscribed in small amounts by Quincy
Thirty-Nine Years in High School.
Miss Leonard has taught for 39
5'ears. always in high schools, and Miss
McGraw has only six months less of
service. Miss Leonard's birthday, num
ber unknown, was celebrated by the
party on the prairies coming out, a
tokeh of estocm being- provided out of
the fine fund, an improvised detail of
the trip, any attempt of a teacher to
talk shop entailing a fine of a nickel.
An interesting incident coming out was
nt the Indian Head headquarters of
the famous Northwest Mounted Police.
The striking uniforms of the police
created havoc with the camera films
of the party, and at Medicine Hat a
raid was made on the town for cam
era films for use in the mountains.

growing out of a tour of the govern

some beauties of the landscape in an
unguarded moment and soon found
himself furnishng material for several
bulky and remorseless notebooks.
Mock Trial in Special Car.
Yesterday there was a mock trial
In their .special car, the sedatest mem
ber of the party being on trial for
flirting, found guilty and fined a box
of chocolates, to be given the judge.
Both attorneys appealed the case, to be
retried on the prairie going home.
During a stop at a station south of
Seattle, the merriment of the trial was
taken to indicate a wedding party,

The members of the party are
chnrmed with Oregon scenery, being
particularly struck by the small fruit
found everywhere of a quality never
found at home. The height of cultiva
tion in the Valley of the Cowlitz .was
a revelation to the visitors, -who, like
many Easterners, looked upon th
West as more or less of a wilderness.

to each other their experiences In the

snow-clad slopes of the white peaks
of the Pacific Northwest.
Never before in the history of Amerl

you an official welcome to the Exposi

deep obligations to ripu for turning out
to these exercises so generously.
"I am ashamed to say that I have
never climbed any of these high moun

many topics that are doubtless of great
interest to you.
"It Is our scenery that attracts East
ern people. Many have seen larger Ex
positions than this on in commemora

never been a Fair with such beautiful
surroundings. Great crodit is due the
Mazamas for bringing the mountains of
our Northwest states into favorable
notice. It is due largely to the mem

The last speaker of the day was Will

tween Eastern and Western mountains,

morals." said Mr. Brooks.
Immediately after the exercises in
the Auditorium, the Mazamas held an
informal reception in the Forestry
building- in honor of the visitors. The
time was spent swapping- - tales and
stories of experiences. Out on th
north steps of the building- a picture
of the mountaineers was taken. Including-
members of the three different clubs
that participated In yesterday's exer
cises. Today the visitors will be taken up
the Columbia River on the steamer

The boat will leave at 7 o'clock. This
evening- a large excursion of more than
200 will leave over the Northern Pa

the party will travel by tho Tacoma &

him on the climb the Identical alpenstock
that he used on that occasion 35 years

tho two young athletes reached the sum
mit at 5 P. M., after 11 hours of hard,
unremitting toll. They had expected to
return the same day, and had, therefore,
left behind them In camp their coats and
blankets, which left them entirely un
protected from the Icy blasts that swept
the summit. Finding that It waS neces
sary to remain all night on the peak they
sought ono of the three craters and warm
ing themselves by the jets o steam that
issued from the racks, they built them
selves a wall of stones to shelter them
from the Wintry hurricane. But the smell
of the sulphur, as well as the whistling
winds that froze their steaming, saturated
clothing, made the night anything but
comfortable. But in spite of this unusual
exposure to the elements on tho summit
of the snow-peak they were able to make
the slow and dangerous descent of the
mountain In safety the following day.
TWO-BIT RATE IS POPULAR

done more to popularize the Exposition

the management to increase the attend

increased attendance being noticeable

successful In drawing many people, is at

of people assemble every night to hear

they were afflicted only a few days ago,
they arc now taking a more cheerful view
of their prospects, and very few expres
