Sunday, ami narrowly escaed lieing
In walking across the stream on
one of the logs of the old Ro)inson
bridge, about ten miles up the river,
Cecil made n misstep nnd fell. She
had hold of her father's hand nnd
ho was pulled oil" the log on which
he win. I loth went Into the wnter,
deep and swift at that point, and
all that wived the little girl was the
fact that Mr. Douglas did not low
his hold on her.
The rapid current held him under
the wnter for some time, but he
succeeded in getting the child up
on his shoulder and her head out of
the water. He knew how to swim,
and after a hard struggle reached
thit side of the river and clung to a
rock. Walter Chenille and Mrs.
Douglas, who witnoiwod the acci
dent, took the little girl from the
cold water. Mr. Douglas was so
exhausted that it was some minutes
leforu he could crawl out.
Cecil's wet clothing wax stripped
o(T at once and she was well wrap
ped up, but Mr. Douglas had to
make the ten-mile ride home with
out a change and was benumbed
when he got here and sutTered much
from the shock.

This was the unanimous opinion
of Judge II. C. Ellis, Joe Hunter,
W. II. SUatB and Clyde M. McKay,
who returned Monday night from a
two-day Insertion trip. They went
to Riley, within 25 miles of Burns,
In Mr. Hunter's auto. The Harney
county people have graded and
cleared the road of rock, built
bridges and culverts and made a
splendid highway. The Lake county
stretch has been worked by the
Harney nnd Crook people and Is
also In good condition. From Bend
to the Harney line the same Is true,
the viewers said. There are no
high centers, no rock to bother, and

work was done.
Three men from Bend are at work
on the road In Crook county.
The party of railroad and busi
ness men who will come from
Burns to Bend over this road will
find it smooth and speedy.
WHY PAPER IS LATE.
The Bulletin Is late In being issued
today owing to the extra work of
putting Into type the two franchise
ordinances passed by the City Coun
cil last night.
