Captain Robert Jones, of the pup

when he ran in under the lee of the
big cape to escape the rigor of the
northwest bree2s that was a little too
much for his gallant motor boat The
beach was literally swarming with
people who thought she was in dis
tress and rather anticipated a thrilling
diversion; but they happily dis
appointed, for he gave them , a look
and went to sea again when he reach
ed the jetty. All sorts of dismal
things have been prophesied
about the Delia and the fate that
awaits her one of these days on the
high seas, but she keeps coming and

An Adventurous Trip
Up the Nehalem River
On Friday night's Seaside express.
Donald Stuart, Lawrence Rogers and
Stanley Young arrived home from a
two weeks' hunting and fishing trip
down the Nehalem river from Jewell
to Nehalem City. Speaking of their
trip' the boys related the following:
"We left Saturday morning, July
18th, at 6 a. m. for Jewell. We drove
down to Dan Ricrson's ranch, where
we stayed that night. The next morn
ing at noon we bought a boat from
Mr. Ricrson and started for Nehalem
City, some 44 miles away. The first
night we camped 10 miles down the
river from Mr. Rierson's farm. The
rapids in the river from Mr. Rierson's
farm to this place are something ter
rible, but nothing like we found fur
ther down. On the morning of July
20th, we once more started down the
river, this time to make Cronan
CriK'k which is about two miles above
the Salmonberry. We were told by
many people that it was a next thing
to an impossibility for one to make
the Salmonberry, as we would never
get over the falls of the river. Well,
falls or no falls, we decided to stay
by our old boat until she broke to
pieces. We were told by several men
where the most dangerous places
were, and of the little falls, big falls,
canyons, and pot-holes, that the river
made through the rocks. We were

with three men fitting on the river
bunk. Being the first human being
to see in two days, .we landed, and
walked up to them, and inquired a
to where we were. We were told
that we were at the confluence of the
Salmonberry Creek and Nehalem
river, and you may be ure we were
"The river at this place cut three
mountains and rocks of volcanic
origin. At the Salmonberry we
camped, where we fished and hunted.
Deer are plentiful, and from the
tracks we found the elk are certainly
abundant. Both the, Salmonberry and
Nehalem furnish one with trout of
"Staying a week at this place, we
once more broke camp, and started
for Nehalem City. Everything went
well until we were about two miles
below the Salmonberry. Here the
river runs through a large gorge, and
when we were about half Way through
the boat became jammed at the end
of a large ledge of boulders. The
water at this place rum like a mill
race, giving one very poor footing.
For three-quarters of an hour we
chopped and broke rock with a
geology hammer, and finally got the
boat through. It was at this place
that we almost gave up, but luck
seemed to be with us.
"Once more started, we met with
no further mishap until the largest
falls in the river were reached. Here
wc came near going over without
knowing what was ahead of us. Had
it not been for the spray that was
thrown some feet in the air, we sure
ly would have gone over with disas
terous results. Landing on a small
island we clamored out of the boat,
and pulled it around the galls, and
lined it through the raging torrent
until calm water was reached. Then
came the little falls which have a
drop of about five feet. Again we
lined the boat through, and although
a good deal of water was taken in,
we came through safely.
"From the little falls, we had clear
shooting to Mr. Batterson's farm, the
first farm this side of Nehalem City.
We camped at this farm that night,
and the next afternoon we reached
Nehalem City after shooting twenty
one rapids from the Batterson farm.
On examining the boat in Nehalem
City, it was found to be in good shape
regardless of the' hard usage it had
been put through.
"On July 30th we started 'from
Nehalem City to Seaside reaching
there on the afternoon of the 31st,
none the worse for our thrilling ex
perience of shooting three falls, can
yons, and rapids, in the Nehalem
"In conclusion, we may say that it
certainly was great sport, but advise
no one to take the trip without first
consulting some one who really
knows the good and dangerous parts
of the river."
