Tha Eagle Creek camp grounds on
the Oregon National Forest attracted
16,000 fvisitota from thirty atatei and
a doten foreign countries during tha
outing season; of 1916. according to T.
H. Sherrard, supervisor of the Oregon
National Forest. This ia tha first sea
son these camp grounda have been
1 easily accessible to the public.
! The grounds hav been developed
under a carefully devised plan of the
forest service to make them both at
tractive and convenient to campers and
visitors. Nearly one hundred camp
sites with ssfe fire places and other
conveniences have been prepared. Ex
cellent water haa been piped to the
grounds and a sewer system Installed.
A public comfort atation is centrally
located where it ia accessible from all
parts of the grounds. A short loop
rosd from the Columbia Highway
makes it possible for automobile par
lies to drive directly to a camp site,
thus making the packing of equipment
and aupplies unnecessary.
A forest officer was stationed at the
camp grounds during the season who
assisted visitors in finding a satisfac
tory camp site and parking place for
their machine. He saw that a fire was
kept burning in a large concrete stove
for the convenience of transient parties
in making coffee'or cooking food with
out having to start a fire. A supply of
fire wood was kept ready for visitors'
use, and garbage cans were convent
ently placed about the grounds.
Among the 15,000 visitors at these
camp grounds were parties from AlaB
ka. Canada, China. England. France.
Germany, Hawaii, Japan, New Zealand,
Scotland, and Switerland, besides 30 of
the states of the Union.
In preparing for the winter, the pipe
lines have been disconnected and the
comfort station locked. The tent oc
cupied by the ranger aa a temporary
quarters has been taken down. It is
planned to build a permanent ranger
station on the grounds the coming
A topographic survey of the grounds
has just been made, and a lartte num
ber of new camp sites on the west side
of Eagle creek are planned. An auto
mobile bridge across the creek is part
of the plan to make the new camp
sites more accessible.
The trail up Eagle creek has been
completed for four and a half miles to
a bridge site a mile and a half above
tho Punch Bowl. Here a bridge will
be built 60 feet long and 125 feet above
the creek. It is expected to complete
tnis trail to wantum lake next season.
The excellent cooperation of visitors
in keeping the camp grounds in a neat
and attractive condition is appreciated
by the forest officers who have charge
oi tne grounds.
"Because public camping grounds of
this sort meet a real need," says Mr.
Sherrard, "the forest service is dan
ning to develop several suitable sites on
the National Forests of Oregon and
Washington in 1917. According to pres
ent plans, a camp ground near Rock
dale on the Snouualmie forest will un
dergo the most extensive development

REFLECTIONS OF MID
(A paper by Capt. H. C. Coe)
Home Life of the Indian :-In their
bom life the Indiana were kind and
tender hearted. Cruelty to either man
or beast waa not tolerated. I do not
think that the Indian is constitutional
ly lazy. When there waa nothing of
importance on hand, he would do an
unlimited amount of aleeping, and the
houra spent in daylight alumber in no
way affected the quality or quantity
spent during the silent watches of the
night. He is a sociable being and
loves company, spending the greater
part of bia time either visiting or be
ing visited. His ever ready cayuse
was saddled, and chanting a weird
song, he ambled along to a swap ysms,
gamble or have a game of shinny. The
Indian waa a great gambler either
with horse racing or with bones.
This game, one of their own inven
tion, waa remarkable for its simplicity.
A number of men, usually not less
than eight or ten on a side, were
seated opposite each other on the
ground. In front of each side waa
placed a couple of loose bosrds on
which they beat with short sticks, ac
companied by singing. A man from
each side was chosen as operator and
took seats in the middle facing each
other. Two pieces ot bone were pro
vided each, the bone being about an
inch and a half long and half an inch
in diameter. The bone was smoothed
and dressed at the ends. One bad a
grove cut in the middle around which
black thread was wrapped. -Choice was
made and the winner started the game.
All bets had been previously made.
Anything ard everything of a personal
nature was bet. One on one side would
take off his blanket and challenge
someone facing him. The challenged
would promptly accept, pulling off his
blanket and tying the two together
throw them to the general heap at one
side. Another would pull of his
breeches, accepting a challenge from
the opposite side, tie the legs together
and throw the articles on the pile, and
so on until all bets were made.
Then the music started on the side
that held the bones. The man with the
bones took one in each hand, put them
behind him, keeping time to the song
with his body and hands, hands some
times behind him, sometimes in front
of him, passing the black bone from
one hand to the other until he thought
he had his opponent puzzled and then
with a sign or a peculiar note the song
ceased, and holding his clinced hands
up in front of him his opponent would
attempt to guess the hand holding the
black bone. If correct the bones were
passed over to him. I neglected to
mention that about two dozen Bticks of
about six inches each in length were
used in place of chips, a stated number
being forfeited with each failure to
guess the location of the black bone.
This is kept up until one side or the
other wins all of the sticks.
Shinny was played with a ball made
of maple gnarl and hockey sticks. The
side driving the ball beyond a set
boundary on the opposite side won. At
least Vi iilavtra were rtuuired on a
side. In early days here a band of
young men from the Klickitats would
come over, usually on Sunday, to play
Hood River. They always took their
losses good r.sturedly, and when some
unfortunate lost both blanket and
breeches be was jeered unmercifully.
The women were always busy, even
when entertaining company. Their fin
gers kept time with their tongues. They
were expert at basket weaving, mocca
sin making and headwork. The basket
was water tight and the larger ones
were frequenlty used to boil roots in,
hot stones being dropped into them.
Some of their moccasins, with highly
colored beads in various patterns in
them, were gorgeous. They were
faithful in their work in field and orch
ards. I never had to urge or hurry
them. In fact the shoe was on the
other foot, when, as I was starting
home, some old woman with a load of
fruit or potatoes would call out, "Hun
nah, Henly, hiak, clouwak, mika" (Oh
hurry up Henry, you are awful Blow).
Some of the men were experts in
making bows and arrows and covering
them with sinew. Some of the obsid
ian bow and arrow points were of the
most delicate workmanship. The bow
strings were of twisted sinew as per
fect as tnougn made with machinery.
From childhood down through the
years oi mannood to old age 1 have
known them intimately and have loved
them, loved them for their simple man
nood ana womanhood, loved them for
their wealth of humanity. As I turn
in sickening horror from the lurid
headlines of my morning paper, telling
of the bloodstained shambles of the
battle fields of the most Christianized,
educated nations of the earth, whose
lives and energies to the utter limit
are employed in devising and inventing
engines and diabolical contrivances to
destroy their fellow man, my thoughts
turn backward to the daya of long ago,
to scenes of peace and simple happi
ness, away from strife and struggles
of modern civilization, to where indeed
the simple life must be lived and let
live, to the simple, untutored God-

Lo, the poor Indian with untutored
mind, is richer than we richer in the
joy of living-richer, in that he in
peace can lie down and die without
fear of an avenging god or eternal
punishment. His god opens the pearly
gates wide to all and says "Come."
The Happy Huntine Ground, with tha
