' W, B. Keen went to Portland to
attend the funeral of his brother,
who lately died at that city. Mr.
Keen had contracted a severe cold at
the Clear lake dam site and had de
cided to go to his home at McMln
nville to doctor up. The death of
his brother decided the matter.
Clear Lake Dam Notet
The Wapinitia Irrigation company
crew at Clear lake is still trenching
Into the sug-base to complete the
cut-off wall of the dam. The timber
for the bam work is being cut and
peeled. Sandy Lumber company
trucks are bringing in material for
facing the structure. William
Hickey, Engineers Reese and Ste
vens have charge of the general
plans. Robert E. Ellinwood, son-in-law
of E. E. Miller, has been on the
job from the start. A rotary pump
and gas engine is employed con
stantly to keep the seepsge water
out of the trenches while the men
are at work. No serious accidents
have occurred. The Job ia covered
by the State Industrial Incurance
protection. Robert Ellinwood fell
Into a trench, wrenching a shoulder.
Some Portland ladies vfcited " the
site last Saturday. While looking
the work over one of their number,
Miss Leone E. Raymore, slipped off
some peeled piling into the creek,
nearly breaking her leg. Lumber
is being -.kidded Into the "hole" by
Julius Shepflin's team. Those well
trained horses think nothing of go
ing down a 45 degree angle hiil or
drawing logs through the lake chan
nel belly-deep In water. '
The weather continues to be kind
to the project, being cold and snap
py. It is understood that anyone
who fails to get up at the first call
for breakfast will be tarred and
feathered John Confer to furnish
the goose feathers for the ceremony.
Geese are scarce and no one h,aa,
been tardy, so the rule so far has
not been enforced. One of the work
era, In his hurry to comply with the
din, breakfast order, got his
trousers on backward. He promptly
startc4 for McCubblni gultch Instead
of the mess house. Keen said he was

Joe A. Graham and crew r.
Bates Shattuck and L. C. Hennc
ghan have each purchased a new
Studebaker auto and have them in
their garages. Bates buy was fit
ted with leather upholstering while
Lew contended himself with a car
trimmed in plush. Both gentlemen
turned in Studebakcrs on the new
cars, which goes to show that, like
Studebaker wagons, tho cars bearing
that name when once used are al
marking out the line of the north
end change of the Skyline trail
where the dam work wifl necessi
tate a change in the route.
Joe O'Brien, bull cook at the camp
at Bear creek up to Thursday last,
reported several riders, whose cattle
were still out in the upper bush, to
be rounding up the strays. Many
cattle have been brought in and re
newed rides are expected to result in
a close clean up of the missing
stock. While it has been known that
cattle have survived in the moun
tains over winter, the odds are
10 to one that they will starve, to
death. A lone bull who foraged
along the creek breaks when the
water cut away the snow, made it
through several winters ago. A
cow, too thin to travel with the
main bunch, was found by Dee
Woodside and others a few seasons
ago. She had taken the back track
to Clear lake, ate up the cache of
hay at Wm. Moore's trap camp and
later died there in IS feet of snow.
Even the elk and deer, so wonder
fully equipped to withstand the
snow, come down to the west fringe
of the forest along the Warm
Springs and White river breaks to
browse on the brush during the
J. S. Brown and Harry T. Lewis
are baling a'falfa hay to fill order:
that constantly come in.
