(Hy Fred Locklcy.) ' '
' The ono mnlchloss Jewel In Ore

Crater lnlc. Tho day will coino when
thoro iwJll.'lion regulfir procr-plon of
nutos frpni all over thu west co'nilns
along tlio Pacific. lilBhu'ny en roiit
to Crater lnko. Tlio trip from Port
land to Crater Inlco Is no lotiRor n
difficult one nnd tho napphlro sea of
Bllenco or tho crest of tho Cascades
well repays one for tho trip.
You havo your cholco of two
routes to Crntcr Lake, cither by Med
ford or going 12 miles south to Ash
land you can UI:o tho Orcon Springs
mountain road to KlnmnUi Falls and
thonco to Crater Lake. I catiio lo
way of Medford -Medford hits high
class hotels equipped with every mod
ern luxury nnd convenience. Med ford
Is an auto town. Splendidly paved
streets glvo ovldonco that Jnrkbon
county Is tho homo of good roads.
Medford has excellent garages as
well as good hotels. A lino of auto
stages Is operated from Medford to
Crater I.ako. I was a passongor on
ono of theso nutos, Charley Truo be
ing tho chauffeur.
ItoniN ni'c Splendid
Wo left Medford at 8 MO a. in. nnd
rolled over splendid roads n littlo
east of north, passing Tnblo moun
tain and tho Modoc orchards. Wo
kept up a uniform spepd of 25 miles
an hour till wo struck tho "desert."
Hero tho famous moss agates arc
found In considerable abundance.
Tho air was llko wlno. Tho sky
full of lazy floating cumulotm clouds,
For miles tho road winds along be
sldo tho Iloguo river. Wo stopped
to look at tho powor plant that fur
nishes tho principal towns of tho
Iloguo river valloy with electric light
nnd power. Tho scenery hero nnd
hereabouts Is very picturesque nnd

stopped. Going down n winding
through tho timber, wo stood on tho
rocky cliff ncross from tho fall. Tho

Forty seven miles from Medford
you como to Prospect park. Hero In
nn opon park llko gladn Is a hotel,
n storo nnd potsofflcc. James (Srlevo
Is tho owner of Prospect park anil
to ono's plonsuro nnd surprlso every
thing about tho hotel Is strictly mod
ern, "homoy," nnd comfortnblo nnd
tho mcnlB can certainly ob described
ns "good ents."
For miles tho rond, which Is ox
collont, goes by easy grades through
n picturesquo country. Tho natural
brldgo and tho gorgo nro woll worth
n visit. Near tho 09 mllo post you
enter tho Crntcr lnko park. Numer

one long to bo out with n camping
outfit, fishing and roughing It.
