WOSDEKFUL FREAK OF NATURE. Mt. 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 f.ir manv moons. 1 he earth lime w J , cooled again and the grass grew, but i,.tl. Atmin the red man una able to live by hunting and fishing, :..o.i f thp rnrfi of strong men ;.ni tlii-v were now small ana ..l..nt...l anil WPflk. and so they will al 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 nmnv "lOOnS BSO.

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.
