ROUND-UP VIVID PICTURE OF EARLY DAYS
1 200 CONTESTANTS
(By tliarlea Wellington I'urlong,
F. K. O. S.)
When one per cent of the wheat
crop of the United States Is harvest
ed from the great grain belt of Uma
tilla county, the shriek of the Iron
horse reveals the fact that toward
the Rala town of Pendleton the long,
snuke like trains are bearing their
thousands of passengers over and
uround the golden, rolling hills of
Oregon, where but a few short de
cades ago the -slow-moving prairie
schooners of the pioneer straggled
(heir tedious, yes and dangerous ways.
From trail and road which lead
their way to 'the newly paved streets
of progressive Pendleton one may
still see the touch of the old west.
Cowboy and cowgirl riding In to the
Jingle of spur and retch of leather.
An occasional but more modern
prairie schooner with Its owner -and
family, not now seeking a homestead
for a permanent dwelling, but o live
over again for three whole days In
the atmosphere of life of the old west
as they know they will find It In
Pendleton during the Round-up.
From the nearby reservation come
buck and squaw of the Umatilla
tribe with wagon or tepee poles trail
ing behind cayuses, calico and every
variety of marking so dear to the In
dian. They, too, come to live again
in the cottonwoods near the Round
up park the old tepee life of an al
most bygone day.
Many an old brave may even now
be found w'ho remembers the day
when some of the men of Pendleton
who still walk its streets gave battle
to their red brothers, the Snakes, at
Willow Springs and elsewhere In '78.
But the Umatilla was then as today,
the friend of the white man and now
Pendletonlans, guests, cowboys, cow
girls and redmen have gathered and
renewed this afternoon on the Happy
Hunting Grounds at Round-op Park
the first of the three days of the
r great epic drama of the wset Three
days of the most fascinating, fastest,
fight and fun to be found.

Not only will there be turee regular
Round-up performances in the after
noons but there will also be one to
morrow morning, commencing at 9
o'clock. This exhibition will be In
the nature of an elimination contest
and is being held more for' the con
venience of the Round-up organiza
tion than for the pleasure of the vis
itors. However, any one Is welcome
to attend and the admission price will
be only 25 cents. No seats will be
reserved and there will be no pro
grams. The spectators will pay their
quarters at the gate, take any seat
they want and watch the show.
So many contestants have been en
tered In the bucking, steer-roping and
bulldogglng contests that the morn
ing show Is necessary for the purpose
of elimination. Some of the beet
feats of the Round-up are performed
at the morning shows.
Up until last night 1SS cowboys and
cowgirls were entered In the various
contests and there were so many more
arriving today that the entry" books
were reopened and the list is now over
200, the largest number In the five
years of the Round-up. The greatest
ropers, riders and bulldoggers In the
world are represented in the list The
hundreds of Indians who will take
part In the show are not on the entry
list except those few who take part
In the championship contests.

For The Spectator.
With the purest blend of turquoise
sky, pellucid sunshine and balmy- air
giving proof of the favor of the gods,
with thousands of red-blooded Ameri
cans banked above the track on three
sides and hundreds of gaudily pictur
esque cowboys, cowgirls and Indiana
mounted on their restless ponies lining
the back stretch, Pendleton's fifth
annual Round-up began the making
of wild west history this afternoon.
The scene at the park this afternoon
is answer to the question, "Will the
Round-up live?" The crowd, fifteen
thousand strong, was never more en
thusiastic, never more vociferous,
never more wild beyond restraint And
there never was such an assemblage
of daredevils gathered together aa
the Round-up presents this year in the
list of 200 and more cowboys, cowgirls
