rived in Portland on October 22.
They came in a Bulck car, and
their actual running time was

that the running time of the
trams between Philadelphia and
Portland is 108 hours.
They followed tiro Lincoln high
way, through Pennsylvania,! Ohio,
Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska,
Wyominz. Utah. Idaho and Ore-
Kon. Thev found some baa
stretches of road, too.
This is the first visit ofC, K-
Gill to Oregon. He is employed
by the Pennsylvania railroad,
and he is on a vacation of; three
months. But he has fallen in
love with Oregrjn, and he will not
likely go back to Pennsylvania to
live. Mrs. Gill has been in Ore
