WHERE THEY SAVE
TREES IN STREETS
Mrs. Drake writes from Pasadena
an interesting account of-the efforts
put forth to save trees in the streets
of that California city. On liveoak
in Orange Grove avenue has been
treated by a tree doctor for five
weeks in the effort to preserve it.
He dug about the roots and laid
pipes to drain tjie soil, chained the
uranencs togctucr wuere tuey
threatened to break or separate,
cleaned out an old hollow in the
trunk and filled it with cement, like
a big hollow tooth, trimmed the
branches and otherwise put it in
condition fur growth. Now new
leaves are coming out and every
body concerned is happy in the be
lief that the tree will continue to
live in the middle of the street and
contribute a beauty that otherwise
would be lost. Every available
tree is thus kept to preserve the
touch of nature, without which all
beauty is barren.
Mrs. Drake recently made the as
cent of Mt. Wilson with a party of
Irieuds, acquiring plenty of exer
cise nnd more or less thrilling ex
perience, though she says it was
tame in comparison with Indian
Henry's trail up Mt. Rainier or the
Mer dc Glace.

As reported in The bulletin ex
tra of last Wednesday evening, the
Goal preparatory step in the build
ing of the Oregon Trunk railway
has been taken. The contract for
the construction of 135 miles of
railroad from Madras via Bend to
the Klamath Indian Reservation
011 that date was awarded to H C.
Henry of Seattle.
The terms of the contract call for
the completion of grading by Janu
ary ut, iQir, while construction is
to be undertaken on the entire
length of the work at once. It is
believed that the big bid fell to
Henry for about $4,000,000, al
though the figure is more or less
simply the guess work of those fa
miliar with the work, no announce
ment having been made by either
contractor or railroad company.
contractor Henry is the man
who established the record for
rupid railroad construction in push
lug the Pacific Coast extension of
the Milwaukee system through
from Butte, Mont, to Puget Sound,
ijoo miles, in three years. Hen
ry's local representatives say that
if they are successful in getting the
number of men they want they will
make another new record in build
ing this second link in the Oregon
The 135 miles of coastractioa
covered by this new contract is the
longest stretch of work yet let out
by the O. T. Ry. Porter Brothers
have 109 miles of road to build
from Celilio to Madras. With the
exception of the Crooked River
bridge Henry is to do all the work
from Madras to the Reservation;
the bridge itself will be installed by
the railroad company.
On this stretch of road there will
be no heavy fills or deep cuts, no
expensive bridges and no serious
grades to climb, so that construc
tion will be comparatively rapid.
One per cent i to be the maximum
adverse grade, 90 pound rails will

will be practically a replica of the
