yesterday upon his return from a

made with Highway Commissioner
Spauldlng which took the two men
and their party as far as Burns.
Judge Siegmund made it a
point to go out from Bend through
Sisters as far as Suttle Lake
where the federal road bureau has
already built tbe road. From
there it is nine miles to the sum
mit ot the Cascades and it Is this
stretch from Suttle lake northwest
which the federal government is
now working on. The Judge said
it was 20 years since he had been
at the lake, going there in 1111
on a camping trip. It is a beauti
ful place, and especially now with
the new highway running along
side the lake for two miles with
at fringe of pine timber between
the road and the lakeside.
