The Legend of a Shadow Cast by
noou un tvery tiear nay.
Reprinted from the Glacier of May 14, 1H97.
Mount Hood, situated lis it is in a
mountain range dividing two sections of
a populous country, and being visible
for a hundred miles in either direction,
can not but be a source of great attrac
tion to all Oregonians and the hundreds
of tourists who annually visit its vicinity,
Its perpetual snow, beautv of outline
its glaciers and steaming crater, together
with tho wonderful scenic combination
of lake and river and wooded hilis to be
found in its immediate vicinity, have
endeared it to the bear's of many and
made it popular with all. Unlike many
mountains m some older settled coun
tries, it is not famous as being associated
with legendary lore; but within the past
year, from a source which must remain
a mystery to the general public, there
comes au Indian legend which has re
mained unknown for untold generations.
Perhaps it has been handed down by
the great medicine men of certain tribes,
locked in the breast of each until the
hour of death, to remain so until at
certain sign it was to be given again to
the tribes. This sign was to be a great
shadow which would appear on the
north slope of the "colesnass," or snow-
peak, south of the hyas tumwater,
meaning the mountain south of the
ereat falls which were formerly w here
the cascades now are. The shadow
should be that of a hyas tyee (great
chief) and was warning of a o-lap-it-ski
(lire) which should come from the illahe
(earth). In the face of these disclosures
it is rather startling to a superstitious
mind to note that on the north slope of
Mount Hood, on the east side of the
most western ridize, about half way
down the mountain, appears each day
an enormous shadow, the classic profile
of an Indian chief, with hook nose,
thick lips, prominent chin and retreat
ing forehead surmounted with the war
lock. The shadow commences to form
about 1 p. m., and at 8:15, or nearly so,
every feature is clear cut and distinct
As the sun sinks its symmetry is spoiled
Even though this wonderful shadow has
no meaning except to the superstitious
mind of the savage, it presents to ns a
beautiful freak of nature and throws
around the grand old mountain a charm
which will always be a source of never
ending enjoyment and wonder.
The legend, as nearly as it can be
translated, runs thus: Many, many
suns ago, when the great colc-snass
south ol the hyas tumwater was so tall
that when the sun was half way be
tween its rising and its setting its shadow
made dark all the land to the north for
a day's journey, Hol-leks De-aub'a angry
spirit dwelt in' the bowels of the great
mountain and threw out pi-ah, smoke
and chah-co wam-o-luk (fire, smoke and
red-hot snakes), streams of lava, which
ran far toward the sea to the west, des
trovina everything before them, and
forcine the red man to move far away
The red men of that day were not
children as now, but tall as the pine
trees that cover the hills, the tyee
(chief) who rukd them was so much
taller than his warriors that any of them
could walk undor his outstretched arm
and not touch it. It had been revealed
to this chief many times in his dreams
that unless the fire demons who lived
in the mountain were conquered they
would some day throw out rivers of fire,
which would overflow the whole land
and drown his people from off the earth,
and nothing should be left of all the
animals and all things which grew in
the earth.
The great chief was brave and the
strongest of his warriors. He deter
mined, Bingle handed, to fight De-aub's
devil and all his me-sah-che-ta-niah-na-u,u
demons), and save the people whom
h lnvpd. After manv days' travel he
piI the mountain top. Ho found
there great stones lying around and at
iip commenced heaving them down
the entrance which led to the strong
imi.l r.f tli demons. The demons being
,..,o iho.Ih ftnurv. hurled them back
ii.utnii red hot. Thev arose high toward
the sky and fell far away. Being unable
to drive the chief away with these, they
hj.lMid nn smoke and fire anil melted
rocks. For many days the fight con
tinued, when the chief, ceasing for a
mnm0nt In the tkht. cast his eye down
f,r he had left his people. Their
uim t.ha izreen trees and grass, all
had disappeared, covered deep in a sea
of fire, which had risen so that but a
tlm mountain peak remained
above it. Sorrowful and dismayed, he
soon sank down and was buried by the
Btreams of melted rock. A few of his
people escaped to the highest mountain
peaks, where they survived with but
f:..i.. tn oat manv moons. 1 he earth

cooled again and the grass grew, but

una able to live by hunting and fishing,

ways remain until such a time as a hyas
tvee shall come who will conquer the
demons of fire and restore them to their
natural selves, free from all deformities
nd strong as before De-aub conquered
the earth. When the great tyee shal
appear again it shall be a beginning o
the time when Ill-a-he (earth) shal
again become the happy hunting ground

mcrsed in a liquid at a temperature 312
degrees below zero.
A piece of excelsior was Immersed,
and when removed from the cup con
taining the liquid it was brittle and
was crumbled into pieces by the dem
onstrator. If there was sufllcient of the
iquid, a piece of eordwood could be
placed in it, and after a few moments
nken out and broken into nieces ac
cording to what size one desired.
An experiment was made with a rub
ber ball. Rubber is considered imper
vious to cold, yet this, ball in a few
moments became as brittle as glass, but
exposure to the atmosphere returned
it to its normul condition, ine same
kind of experiments was made with
pieces of meat and with handkerchiefs.
A solution of the crematory question
that has been troubling a city father
for some time was ottered by the dem
onstrator: He immersed different fab
rics hi the liquid and then touched
them to a fl mie, They Immediately
vanished, leaving; neither ashes nor
odor. Mr. Patty said that within a
short time, or as soon as liauefied air
becomes sufficiently cheap, cities
throughout the country will use this
in their crematories. It will immedi
ately consume anything, and moreover
tbere will be no odor or asneg.
In order to demonstrate the lowness
of its temperature alcohol and mercury
were intermingled witu it. in eacn
instance he alcohol and mercury be
came frozen.
Its ereat heat was also shown by
dipping two pens in it and then apply
ing them to a flame. They were
straightway welded firmly together.
Other experiments were placing u
kettle of the liquid on a cake or ice,
when steam issued freely from the
spout. Then the kettle was placed
over a fire and lee was formed therein
while actually over the flame.
Its great explosive power was also
shown, demonstrating it to be greater
than dynamite.

Rev. Irl It. Hicks' 1903 Almanac
To say that this splendid work of
aninnrn mid art is finer and better than
ever, is statinzit mildly. The demand
for it is far bevond all previous years,
Tnanv that, such rBsults.reachimr through
thirty vpara. are not based noon sound
sense and usefulness, is an insult ts the
intplliiwnce of the millions. Professor
Hicks, throne i nis ureal aimanac, uuu
his famous family and scientific journal,
Word and Works, is doing a work for
the whole people not approaehed by any
other man or publication. A fair test
will prove this to any reasonable person.
Added to the most luminous course in
astronomy for 1903. forecasts of storms
