Beauties of Nature in " Vicinity of

BY ANNE SHANNON MONROE.
CAMP RILEY, Monday Night, Aug. 4.
If this positively la the last letter
this season from tha Mazamas, don't
take it that we have been "swallowed
up by a crevasse; it merely will mean
that the writer has become possessed
Of a deadly what's-the-ueo spirit. You
really can't convey the situation by
words, and an attempt, even, is sickly
and futile. Words were made for lesser
things, in lesser places, and up here
one 1b just silent that is, sometimes.
Ws can exclaim over Cook Weston's
method of serving young lamb. Sh!
We didn't poach it. . A sheepherder. pre
sented it after he'd seen No. 34. You
know we number for the bigr march up
here, and we are enjoying1 the sprinsr
lamb, so not a word as to No. 84'b iden
tity. She smiled and we ate lamb and
w can exclaim over Mr. Yoran'a won
derful preparedness when we reached
here today, after a march up of 12
miles (by the pedometer).
Hourly, almost, we exclaim over the
excellent management of the entire out
ing committee, composed of 'IV W.
Benefiel, H. H. Prouty, W. C. Yoran, of
Eugene; Miss Fleming, Mr. L.. E. Ander
son and Mrs. Sheldon, who pulls the
wires from the Portland Hotel. All
these things are in the range of human
possibilities, and about . th-em we can
talk; but when It comes to. the Creator's
part who can say an adequate word?
Nature's Beauty Told,
Imagine a gradual grass-covered
lope with here and there charming
flats and hollows, surrounded or half
mooned by great black pines or firs,
and the old mountain (Adams) loow
lng up. white and vast, above us! Im
agine a snug little sleeping bag, cud
dling down on its pine bough bed, in
IZ of these nature-made cribs, with
nothing overhead but the stars, and
off to the south. Mount Hood, in one
of its most picturesque settings! Then,
for creature comforts imagine a per
fectly equipped cook tent, with modern
collapsible stoves, patent cookers and
every known convenience for comfort
and luxury in the woods.
The long table Just beyond is under
a pine-bough shelter, and provided with
half-log seats. Everything is as slick
and clean as a whistle, not a shadow
of debree, not a crumb carelessly
dropped as a lure to flies. Tents are
provided here and there near the groups
of sleeping bags, but it is barely likely
they will be used save in case of bad
weather; every one prefers the open
Mr. Yoran has passed a week getting
things in readiness. .
Comfort Is Unsurpassed.
One experienced camper in many
climes and camps declared he had never
before known such outdoor comfort
and convenience. The weather is crys
tal clear (I've used "crystal" a lot in
these letters, but everything up here
Is crystal and I haven t my thesaurus.
so what can I do about it?)
And what do you think happened Just
now as a grand finale? A slender new
moon, ah, far finer than you have in
town, actually swung right up between
two black pines. Just to show us that
there was one last touch to be given to
We are especially Jubilant tonight
because of more things than the moon.
Mr. Anderson told us last night to rise
at 4 A. M. prepared for a long, hard
"hike" to the permanent camp. We
were still lame from the big cave
"hikes," but we kept a stiff upper lip
and meant to make the best effort we
could, though we all went to sleep
nursing our feet and pressing adhesive
plasters to certain portions thereon.
We set out at 7 A. M. in two parties.
Party No. 1 was composed of those am
bitious hikers who fret restively under
a restraining gait. Party Iso. 2 was
composed of the others, who loudly in
sist that tiny came to the mountains
for the scenery and the botany talks of
Mr. Gorman and there b not a bit of use
hurrying anyway. But beautifully had
Mr. Anderson overdone the rigors of
Mo-it Hikers Beat Speeders.
We, the slow ones, climbed up gentle
slopes and rested in yellow pine
shade (the best in the world) and
walked sweetly and freshly into camp
at 3 P. M. he first arrivals! We were
almost too proud to eat! But after
our pride had had its fill, we remem
bered that we still loved our missing
ones and fired guns as signals.
An hour later, soaked in perspiration
and weary, they pulled themselves in
by their alpenstocks. Their ambition
had overshot the mark; they had gone
so fast they passed Riley camp and got
mixed up in the snow fields on above,
only to be recalled by the signaling
Not a brag have they bragged since,
10 of them, and neither did we crow
as we mopped their steaming brows
and fed them cooling drinks.
Mr. Rlddell said some things real
peevishly and we wonder what he
After this, when there's a "swift"
party and a "slow" party, I wonder
who will figure in the first!
Security I Felt.
A beautiful comfort about this Ma
nama Club is the feeding that an acci
dent I mean a real one can't possibly
happen. Experienced Mazama guides
are with every climbing party, and no
person or persons is allowed to
leave camp without depositing a state
ment in the postoffice box as to where
he is going. Every precaution is taken
against useless risk.
Another Joy about being all settled
in our permanent camp is the absence
of curious neighbors. We found out
at Trout Lake Just what the poor peo
ple suffer when the rich ones go slum
ming. Delegations of farmers' fami
lies filed over and watched us eat, and
watched us pack up. and actually, with
lanterns, filed through the "dormi
tories last night to watch us sleep.
They seem to think it's a most curi
ous bit of freakism for folks with
homes and beds to leave these joys and
hie to the wilds, there to crawl Into
canvas bags, and stretch out, slug-like.

and through a square of mosquito net

Inspection Contlaara Lrfite.
Till late they filed through, gazing
curiously at the spectacle, and making
commments, all oblivious of our feel
ings. Some of us are cured. We will
never go "slumming again.
And then the swimming pool! The
stream at Camp Riley races madlv bv

second trip with the Mazamas. His

4s husky and Belf-reliant and a credit
to the club.
Tomorrow Is to be a sort of rest day
in camp. That is, for the most of us.
At the oampflre tonight the announce
ment from Mr. Benefiel that breakfast
would be from 7 to 8 and nothing later
brought forth the anxious query frKn
Mr. Coursen: "Does that mean we can
eat from 7 to 8 steady"?" So it doesn't
take a prophet to foresee what kind of
a rest day the cook will have.
AGED INDIAN LOST 3 DAYS

NEWPORT, Or., Aug. 6. (Special.)
The two oldest Indians on Sileta

roots for three days.
Dr. Johnson is said to " have once

The last of a series of meetings to
