Loup City will hold a three days’
Carnival some time this fall. This was
decided upon at a meeting held on Mon

been most flattering from all with
whom the editors talked. On Monday,
Bro Brown and The Northwestern
quill pusher canvassed the business
portion of town and called a meeting
for that evening in the old Times build
ing. At the appointed time the build
ing and street adjacent was packed
with an enthusiastic throng of pro

advocates. The meeting was organized
by selecting Judge Wall as chairman

unanimous approval and Messrs. II M.

Continuation of Series of In

Neiiama, Ore.,—I mu*t continue my
oFten Interrupted story of our delight
ful visit to the mountains.
I must hasten over the story of our
second fishing excursion, and will only
say that while the guide and the Baby
Schoolmaara were catching fourty-four
speckled beauties, the Nebraska Girl
succeeded In landing two small trout.
And I must not omit telling you about
the salmon which we saw in the deep
pool, renting after their long journey
from the ocean.
We watched them for a long time,
but even the ferti'e brain of the guide
could not devise any plan by which one
of them could be induced to come
But the crowning event of our moun
tain trip came when on Wednesday
the Baby and the guide, both experi
enced campers, packed up for a three
days outing and we started for House
Mt. Rock.
We had a pack horse and two saddle
horses, which the ladies took turns in
riding. We had to ford the river, the
guide riding ahead on the pack hor-e
and then taking a horse back for the
Little Moth-r.
Our trail followed the river a little
wav, up across Canon creek, then away
from the woods and up a very long
steep hill covered with tall ferns.
The heat was intense and there was
no shade except an occasional tree and
no water.
When wTe finally reached the timber
agtin, we knew howto appreciate its
cool shade, after our two hours or more
of hard climbing in the sun.
The guide went in search of water,
and finding none, returned with some
delicious ealmon berries and after eat
ing them we no longer felt the need of
h drink.
Our trail led us up over a rocky ledge
where the ascent was steep and the
summit not more than three feet wide
sloping down into canons on either side.
From the highest point the view was
extensive and beautiful, the descent
being very abrupt, and at the base we
found a tiny spring, though the water
was not very cold it was very grateful
to our thirsty palates.
Only a few more hills and we' dis
covered a little creek where we stopped
for lunch
After luncheon we pulled leaves and
mosses for pilolws and lay down for a
half hour’s rest.
But time was flying and we were still
a long way from the Rock, so we re
sumed our journey, travelling all the
way through a dense forest of the
grandest trees, up hill and down, with
the trail growing dimmer and still more

There were holes at regular intervals
in the trail, made by a little animal
called the mountain boomer; and used
as our horses were to watching for
them, they would sometimes stumble
into one
At last we caught a glimpse of the
Rock quite close at hand.
I can not describe to you the feeling
of wondering, admiring awe with which
[ beheld this stupendous mouument to
the Creator’s power and glory.
“The firraanent declares the glorv of
God, and the earth showeth his handi
Soon we came out upon the shore of
beautiful Mirror Lake, and dismounted
in the loveliest place for a camp.
For a time we could do nothing but
stand spell bound and gaze upon the
maesive masonry of House Rock and
the beauty of the lake, in whose clear
depths the Rock and surrounding trees
were reflected.
But soon the guide led the way to a
spring of ice-cold water and the Happy
Four proceeded to quench their thirst,
and carry som? back with them to uee
in preparing supper.
The guide built a fire and prepared
to pitch our tent, while the Baby being
the only one of the ladies who under
stood the mysteries of “sog,” was soon
engaged in getting supper.
x\fter tea we pulled ferns for beds
and then sat down to enjoy a quiet talk
by the camp fire, until weariness began
to assert its sway over us and kneeling
we thanked God for all we were enjoy
ing and retired.
The Little Mother had the morning
meal all ready when the Baby and the
Nebraska girl got up the next morning
and had to wait while they went to the
s;ring and made their toilet, but as
the guide helped her while away the
time, their effusive welcome did seem
rather overdone to be sure.
That forenoon we w'ent away off
through the woods to look for elk moss
and came back with an armful of it,
also large bouquets of rhododendrons
and other flowers.
We left them in camp and went to
explore the lower storv of the rocky
Ihere was an ascent of about six or
seven hundred feet, which was m tde
rather hard climbing by being so cover
ed with loose shifting stones
Then from that point the solid rocky

the mountain
The guide and the Baby spent two
or more hours in exploring all the
attractions of the ledge, and finallv re
turned to the Nebraska Girl and the
Little Mother, bringing with them a
great block of snow.
We ate all we wanted and played
snowball with the rest on the last day
of June.
We returned to camp, ate our lunch
and prepared to ascend the mountain.
