No tiian or woman with a eoul (or the
divine in nature ever visited White Sal
mon without being impressed w ith its
matchless view of mountain and river.
The entire absence of town life with its
rich and its poor its people of fashion
and its outcasts, . its grinding competi
tion and its sickening pathos, has been
to many who have sunk into its .retreat
ita greatest charm. In them the occa
sional rumor of a railroad down the
north bank of the Columbia awakens no
enthusiasm. To such persons the advent
of a railroad, or even the development
from a rural hnmlet into a village means
the advent of bums and thugs, gin-mills
Nevertheless, such a process is slowly
giing on at White Salmon, and he who
loves the solitude must, in a few years,
move on or adjust himself to a more
complicated condition, lock his doors at
night and wear a collar. We have a
telephone connection with the rest of
t'ie world, a local reservoir and water
system. Mercantile buildings are in
process of construction and others are
planned, and so it goes.

Those fruitgrowers whose strawberry
shipment was wrecked on an unmarked
submerged pile belonging to the Lost
Lake Lumber company feel that the
company has not only defied the law,
but acted very small and excited much
indignant feeling. The attention of
the federal authorities may be called to
the matter. The reckless obstruction
of a stream like the Columbia and the
impudence of the company may re
sult in an early investigation by certain
Clii'iioweth Sews Jiotes.
Our beautiful little burg of Chenow
eth is situated in the midst of the most
beau tifu 1 of the Col u ra bia river scenery.
A few miles above the Cascade Locks is
the Little White Salmon, a stream of
water flowing now in gentle descent,
then in wild dashes, funning cascades
of splendor and beauty and quiet pools
of crystal clearness, fresh from the
mountains fur above. This makes, an
ideal trout stream, where a lover of
fishing or of art and oeauty can find
the most enjoyable place. Here nature
in her fullest abundance has pro
vided all that could be asked
for. Our little burg of one store
and a post office is situated in the
midst of this splendor and beauty. One
wishing an outing or sport cannot find
a place to compete with the, Little
White Salmon. Hunting is excellent
for those who are not afraid of the fam

far Fred Chandler aud started from
the house w the orchard about ten rods
distant, and wlfen about half way he
ran across a large badger. The badger
didn't seem to be very bashful, and
started for him with bia bristles up and
his mouth open. Bert gave one Com
anche Indian war whoop and landed on
a workbench close by. The badger made
several attempts to jump on to the
bench, but Bert kept bis feet going
pretty lively and yelling at the top of
his voice. Miss "Kuby Chandler and
Miss Ellen Dodge hearing his screams
ran out to his assistance, and seeing his
plight called the dog.which ran the bad
ger off to the tmioer. The girls assisted
Bert down from the bench and into
the house, very badly frightened but not
hurt. Bert says, talk about your wild
cats, cougars, bears or anything elBe,
but he'll take any of tham in preference
to that old badger.
Several of the neiah bor bovs took a
trip to Green Point on a fishing excur

understand one of them caught 730 line
trout. But we won't tell his name as
that sounds kind of fishy.

Mrs. George Booth is building an ad

John Groff, who lives on the Mount
Hood road above the bridge, called at
Odell today and related in a graphio
manner one of the most thrilling inci
dents that has been told here for a loug
time. A few days ago he was going
from his sou's ranch homeward when
he encountered a cougar, which chased
him for 80 rods, with bis horses under
a dead run. and finally sprang at him
in the wagon. Probably the only thing
that saved him was the speed of the
horses. The cougar made a leap for
the side of the wagon and landed at
the rear end of the wagon box. This is
no dream, for the prints of bis claws
are plainly visible on the end gate and
one side of the wagou box. I don't
think Mr. Groff is at all frightened
now. but from his vivid descriutiou of
the incident it was surely exciting. I
think this is about the hardest propo
sition this old war veteran ever
