Oct. 4. This is Wednesday morn inn,

life thus vividly portrayed held me
as one enchanted. Like the boys ot
Wyoming, it was dying bard to give
up the strenuous lifo of the plains to
fall in the procession of civilization.
While at the exposition, I met
three schoolmates of the clans of 18.7 ;
who can beat this?
To me the moving pictures of the
cattle roundup in the Wyoming ex

prize. He says he is afraid this will
happen again.
Hundreds of our nickel souvenir

As there bus not been anything from

cut. Tho all absorbing question now is
tho railroad, or rather, as the railroad
seems to be an assured fact, where
the depot is to be; and as there has
boon no announcement made by the
company where the station will be,
the question is open for the people to
talk about.
Three places are taken into consid
eration by the people Underwood,
White Salmon and iiingen. Under

mon: Is it the little town on the
blulf. lt is rather doubtful that a
railroad will climb the celebrated 350
stops to make the town a station.
Or is it greater White Salmon includ
ing a part of the bottom?
lint the Portland big dailies, the
(loldondalo papers, and even the (Ha
uler have It on maps, or otherwise,
that the north hank railroad will be
located through White Salmon ; there

And what of lilngen? . Very little
attention has lieen paid to the place.
though it is without exception the
most beaiuirul town site on the Col

will the station be?
