out to moot the trucks and es

dirt grades wero encountered
near Warm Springs which were
certainly a teat to tho efficiency
of the trucka and their ability to
deliver tho goods. The manner
in which they came over that
pieco of road at a spued of be
tween nino and ten miles an hour
was convincing. Tho machines
can operato successfully in two
feet of snow, but thoy will sel

dept on the road between Burns
and Bend.
A nice spread in honor of the
truck men and drivers waa en
joyed at tho Burns hotel on Wed
nesday evening where u number
of our local business men gath
ered and discussed tho freight
problem. Loyal support was
pledged to tho Central Oregon
Auto Truck Co. on condition that
thoy glvo quick service and rea
sonable rates. Mr. McDado did
not commit himself on the matter
of rates further than to say they
wanted only a legitimate profit
upon their investment.
Mr. Harrison was confident of
the success of the venture and
the demonstration mado by the
machines on tho initial trip was
all that ho could expect Tho
road will improve with a few
tripa as tho rear wheels are wid

it necessary to break a road.

I have read many versions of
my first interview with Mark
Hannn. Frequently I have read
what purported to be the story of
iiow I came to put him in dollar
mark clothes. All of. them havo
shown good imagination on the
part of their authors, but are a
long way from the truth.
I drew my first pictures of Mr.
Hannn from a description of the
man given me by Alfred Henry
Lewis, who had just come from
o few day's visit with him in
Ohio. It would be unfair to Mr.
Lewis to attribute my conception
io tno ucscnpiion no gave me.
But Mark Hanna's portrait as I
first used it was not so much a
reproduction of his features as
they really were, but as we want
ed to show them for political
purposes. Lewis told me that
when he met him Ilnnna wore a
business man's checked suit, and
my first picture showed him
dressed in this manner. I put
dollar marks on his cuff buttons,
which, was as stupid a thing as
any cartoonist could have done.
Then a few days later, in the
early part of 1890, I drew a car
toon of him in which I wished to
convey theideaof "boodle," and
put the dollar marks in the open
checks of his clothes. The night
editor "killed" the cartoon on
account of those dollar marks,
explaining that he did not see
that it added anything to the
picture. When Mr. Hearst ar
rived at the office about midnight
ho saw the cartoon and ordered
it run as I had drawn it, the dollar
marks being emphasized.
A few weeks thereafter I was
much surprised .when I saw, but
did not meet, Mark Ilanna. that
there was plenty of foundation
in his features, with the proper
amount of exaggeration, to pro
duce a face like the one I had
been drawing. I was sitting in
Senate reception room one day
on the still hunt for feature pic
tures, with one knee folded high
over the other to shield my
sketch book. Big game gathered
nil about me so closely that I
couldn't draw. So I tried to im
personate a country constituent,
who might be waiting for a reply
to a card which he had sent in to
his senator. While I was affect
ing this disguise an interesting
looking old colored man sent in
his card to Senator Hannn. Han
nn did not know tne by sight and
In answering the colored man's
card he came into the very corner
where I was located. Here, after
exchanging warm greetings, tho
Senator said: "Well, Dr. Brown
of Georgia, you got my last let
ter?" "Yes, replied the vener
able darky. "Well, Doctor, we
have exchanged many letters,
but I night hnve gone to Georgia
and had hard work finding you.
How is it thnt the minute I came
into the room you immediately
picked mo out?" Tho old color
ed man'a features lit up with
fifty heretofore unseen wrinkles
of expression. He respended:
"Senator Hannn, I knew you by
your pictures." Whereat there
was hearty prolonged laughter,
tinged with a slightly grim note
on the part of tho Senator. Stop
ping the embarrassed darky,
Hanna took him by the coat lapel
and resumed in a whispering
tene: "I hopo it was not through
certain malicious nnd vicious pic
tures thnt you have recognized
me." Tho old colored man's
wrinkles reverted nnd his face

Mr. Crandall has arranged for
the installation of the machine
up a few miles above the E. P.
Sylvester place. It requires con
siderable careful work to install
properly in order that the ele
ments will have no effect on the
working parts of the machine.
To prevent the ice from interfer
ing a shaft is sunk to the low
water mark on the bank of the
stream and a large pipe is placed
leading from the stream into it.
In this the register is instilled
and a house is built to accomo
date the machinery and it has to
be high enough to allow for the
rise and fall of the river which
varies greatly during a season.
A representative of The Times
Herald was shown this wonder
ful piece of machinery in Mr.
McConnell's office the other eve
ning and it is worth seeing, A
description of it was given by a
member of the reclamation ser
vico at Boise and the Stateman
of last Saturday published this
description. It says in part:
An iron base about 14 inches
square, at either corner of which
is an iron rod approximately 21
inches long, supporting an iron
top, forms a frame for the regis
ter. On the two opposite sides of
the base are erected the standards
which carry the recording mec
hanism and the spools for hold
ing the paper strip on which the
record is made, together with the
carbon ribbon, by which the im
print is made on the paper.
The recording mechanism con
sists of three parallel type wheels
an the faces of which aro raised
figures and divisions, indicating
respectfully the period of time
from ono to 12 hours, at intervals
of 15 minutes; the number of
feet to 30 feet, and the hun
dredths of a foot.
Tho timo type wheel is controll
ed by a self-winding clock. This

electric clutch is disengaged and
the motor stops.
The phosphor bronze perforat
ed band by which the float is sus
pended is guided by pulleys, so
that it is impossible for it to get
out of place, and it passes
through felt lined slats in the
base, so that when the cover is
placed on the instrument it is
