The weather this winter down
here has been the worst I ever
saw, snow, rain and sleet. The
wind blew for one month and I
began to long for my haunts in
the Cascade mountains. There
was plenty of snow, drifts eight
and ten feet deep, and there is
plenty of it still remaining.
I am getting ready to come on
to our work on the ditch as soon
as the weather conditions will
permit. We expect to get water
on the Flat by July 1.
Yours very respectfully,
W. B. KEENE.
A crew of 7 men went down
and shoveled the snow off the
upper grade last Friday.

representative is then a unit of
the association and has as much
voice in it as anyone else and will
help to draw up a constitution
and set of by-laws and to elect
officers of the association. It is
very important for the success
of the association to have as
