Mr Spalding, who have been camping
In the uplands near Fish lake for the
past ten days, broke camp on Monday
last and started for Salem, says the
Salem Statesman, on reaching what la
known as "heyen-Mile" hill the forest
was found to bo a mass of roaring
flames, thousands of acres In ; extent,
The road running in the woods at this
point was Impassible, though some
teams Just ahead of Mr. Winters suc
ceeded In getting through the fl re
bel toy dlut of hard running, but all
parties attempting it were badly
scorched about the hands and face and
horses suffered much worse. Seven
teams congregated on the hill where
the Winter party were halted, and
the men worked desperately,, but suc
cessfully, to save the bridge next
ahead of them on their home journey.
After this delay the whole party pro
ceeded over hot coals and burning
embers and through, dense and suf
focating smoke toward their, several
destinations: The - ladies involved in
the adventure were sorely frightened
dui iug the oonflict with the flrey ele
ments, but this wore off when they
were once more started on their home
ward trip.. The track ot the fire ex
tended north and east toward Clear
lake and Mr. Winters says he never
saw a forest fire of such intensity and
rapidity of motion as the one here reported.-.
Survey of Lands Finished.' :
. Mr. John McQuinn, who for the
past two months has been at work
with a party making a survey of lands
in the grant of the Willamettee Val
ley fc Cascade: .Mountain Wagon
road, has completed his job and re
turned. His work waa on the summit
of the range, in the vicinity of Clear
lake and Blue lake, and Mr. McQuinn
says that la a most delightful region
to work iu daring the summer. Blue
lake covers about 76 acres. Clear lake
Is much smaller, and there is a body
of water called Fish lake, which is
Allied through a subterranean chan
nel ' from Clear lake, and which
usually goes dry In the summer. It
has not gone dry this summer, owing
to the large snow fall which came late
and laid on the summit In places
hearty all summer. Blue lake is the
source of one the finest trout streams
in Oregon. Mr. McQuiun's party
caught lota of trout, and he says a vast
number of trout .was taken out of those
streams this season, more than ever
before. His men feasts on trout and
venison whenever they desired to,
