called for help until he wag almost ex
hauntod until finally discovering that
his efforts were useless he waited for
daylight to rerhaps release bim from
his fl.'oiiiziuj position.
With tlfe coming of dawn he again
male an eltort to release himself but
without avail and at intervals shouted
until he whs hoarse and weak from
his efforts and lack of food.
The day went on and no help bad
come. The afternoon passed aud the
shadows of eveuing were almost be
ginning to fall. Vanderpool with de
spair at his heart was afraid that he
would have to pass another night In
his lonely and deserted cabin. Mas
tering all his strength and courage he
gave one more shout long and loud.
Away in a Held a long distanoe from
the cabin was a daughter of Edward
(Iroaliong of White Salmon who had
ttiyed into in the atternoon picking
wild flowers. She beard the despair
ing cries of Vanderpool and going in
the direction of bisci'ies finally ai riv
ed at the cubin and went in. The
eyes of Vauaerpooi were turned to
wurd the door as the entered and al
though ho saw thut she was too small
to be of any assistance he soon com
municated to her his predicament.
So she hurried home and told ber
father who summoned several neigh
bors aud the party went back.
After vainly trying to extricate the
imprisoned man it was finally found
necessary to saw off the branohes of
the tree end the bedposts of the bed
in order ro release bim.
Upon examination it wag found that
Vauderpool bad not sustained any
serious injuries, but was somewhat
bruised and iu a weakened condition
from cold und hunger and.was taken to
the home of his neighbors where he
was cured for aud in a few hours was
no worse for his singular adventure.
