Editor Manpin Times:
We left the homestead at 5:80
this morning; stopped at Govern
ment Camp for lunch; arrived at
Summit house 11 a. m. Four miles
below the summit we broke the
bolt that goes through the front
spring which necessitated the re
moval of the spring; time required
f r making repairs, one hour and
thirty minutes. Arrived at toll
gate 1:55 p. m., stopped once
more for lunch, arriving in Port
land at 5 p. m. We filled the gas
tai.k at Wap'nilia and drove to
the homestead, aud from tbeie to
Portland, and the dial read 98.2
miles, and we Btill have five gal
lons of ii us in the tank.
There will be others that will
make better time, bull think I
hold the record for gas.
We found no snow and but veiv
little mud. From the Clear cret k
road to Frog lake the road is rough
and erom there to Government
