TDK HOTEL ON MOUNT HOOD.
It Is Not Likely To Be Opened This &
on A Vino Water Supply.
The hotel on Mount Hood, near Eliot
glacier, is about completed, but it is un
decided whether it will be opened this
season or not. The building of tne
stage road from Hood River to the hotel
was an expensive job and the work on
the hotel took longer than was expected
owing to the difficulty of getting mater
ial up to so great an elevation. After
the road was completed a largo band of
sheep was driven up into the mountains
over it and in their scrambling along the
steep hillsides above the road to feed
they rolled a great lot of limbs, stones
and treetops down into the road, render
ing it impassible for vehicles, and put
ting the company to considerable ex
pense in getting it cleared out. The
sheep men have been arrested and an
effort will be made to recover damages
from them; It has been concluded that
the hotel is too small and an addition is
talked of. The water supply of the
hotel comes from the melting ice of the
glacier, and is brought in through pipes.
A bottle of it has been sent to this city.
It is as clear as crystal. The bottle was
labeled: "Water supply of Cloud Cap
Inn, 7500 feet above sea level. Gravity
system twenty feet higher than roof ol
inn. No bonds: no veto; cold as ice."
It will probably be decided in a day or
two whether the inn will be opened this
season or not. Next summer when the
big hotel is running here it is expected
that a great many of the guests will
visit Cloud Cap Inn, and if an addition
is not built this season it will surely
have to be built then. Oregonian.
One of our neighbors below town a
couple of miles, has been bothered for
some time by predatory wild cats,
which, urged on by vicious and ma
licious dispositions, and omnivorous and
gregarious appetites, made frequent and
disastrous raids Upon his hen coop, and
carried off some of his young broilers
and egg producers. He got tired, awful
tired of rt, and vowing vengeance on the
whole feline tribe, he procured a shot
gun and laid for the robbers. His pa
tient waiting was rewarded and the red
faced moon glimmering throush tiie
dense smoke, threw the dark silhouette
of an immense cat before his vision.
The cat was a monster, and taking de
liberate aim the vengeful man pulled the
trigger. There was a loud report, a wild
howl of anguish, and then out triend
proceeded to examine the remains,
which he finally picked up, carried
across the field,, and threw over the
fence. The chickens now roost in quiet
content, our friend sleeps the innocent
sleep of the just, while Mrs. Hull seeks
diligently but finds not her pet cat,
which strangely enough disappeared the
same night the wild cat was shot.

It appears from the testimony of ex'
perts that death by electricity may not
be after all the "rock-me-to-sleep
mother" process that humanitarians are
look in it for in the interests ot murderers
A referee has been appointed by a New
York court to collect data upon this sub'
iect and several electricians have testi
tied that it is the reverse of what has
been claimed for it. Testimony of ex
Eerts was introduced showing that death
y this means is uncertain, citing cases
where unconsciousness of many hours
had been followed by resuscitation and
recovery. Others described the suffer
ings of animals experimented upon to be
lingering and most intense, all of which
proves that in the euort to be merciful
mistaken and over-zealous men have
been exceedingly cruel.
