manager who "has conducted the re
aort for oyer thirty years. The trip
waa made from Salem by autp Via
SllTerton and the road was found in
very rood condition for travel. The
natural scenery en route made the
trio enjoyable but when the auto
topped the summit and "Wilholt was
unroiflea to new the reason why the
resort has such a , wide : popularity

has!- been a hotel there for 'forty
years,- and it has been, nothing out
of the ordinary for 5000 people to
visit the resort in a single day1.
, On the 22nd day of February,
1916, the hotel which had afforded
accommodations -for so many, years
was destroyed by fire. Though the
destruction of the hotel was a heavy
financial loss, Mr McLeran lost -no
time in commencing the construction
of a still more attractive hostelry la
take its place. For several years
Mr. McLeran had contemplated the
construction of a nw hotel and the
fire simply hurried his work in do-
'ce is excellent and the meals are a
revelation to the epicure especially
the Sunday dinner, which is provided
for the modest sum of fl.25. .
. There is an air of refinement and
refreshing &se about the ; entire
place, due' In a great measure to the
courteous and attentive treatment
afforded by Theodore McLeran and
his charming wife, who are ever
present to minister 'to the wants of
guests. ' .

action, was set forth in the above

Wllhoit mineral water was awarded
second prize among the mineral VA

able thine when one considers that
it was awarded at the Appolinaris

awarded first prixe); that over SOO0
mineral waters competed; and that
the Wllhoit water was necessarily
the bottled product while the-winner
of the first prize (Appolinarls) was
fresh from the spring..'
