It has an area of l.'ifl.thiO acres and is lo cated in the midst of a beautiful moun tain country, the principal attraction being Crater Lake, a body of water having an area of 20 square miles which is situated in the caldera of an extinct volcano. The lake is sur rounded by unbroken cliffs which range fr.un 500 to nearly 2,000 feet in height.

Dinner was over at the Sandfords', and Jerry, with a long cigar, eat lis tening to the plans being made for the finding of a wife for him. "I shall expect you to call every aft ernoon at 5," Alice was saying, "and each day you will meet a new girl; and I w ill give you a month to choose. Thirty days, and thirty girls make your acquaintance. Is It a go?" Jerry removed the cigar from be tween his Hps and looked appralslngly at Tom's slater. "Sure lsr" he exclaimed. "But I w;t them to be as much like you as possible." Alice blushed and Tom coughed knowingly, while Mr. Gerald Under bill resumed his smoking. "I'll do my best, and each day I shall expect you to remain after the prospective wife has departed to re port on progress." Jerry ngreed to all conditions im posed by Miss Sandford, and, feeling thoroughly happy and grateful, he took his leave. For two weeks Mr. Underhill, In his best clothes, called at the Sandford home each afternoon at 5 o'clock. He met a new girl every day, as agreed and among the lot were some of the noted beauties of New York. To Jerry they were all wonderful, but none more so than Alice Sand ford, who continued to charm him more as the days passed. The allotted month had brought no decision and Jerry, at a loss What to say, sat awaiting the coming of Alice. A perturbed frown was on his hand some face and a great unrest In his heart.

Dr. E. M. Williams of Vinita, acting as best man and Miss Sue Roberts of Big Cabin as bridesmaid. Miss Rutk-r being the daughter of the hotel proprietor and one of the most popular young ladies of Craig realized the difficulty of hav ing a private wedding under these circumstances especially if the wed- nll the "reeulars were there and also when it had been whis pered about for a week that a wedding was going to take place soon. Just how to get the preacher Into town without advertising the event was a problem especially whei he was to come and eat at tho hotel with the "regulars." But Dr. Adams managed this part of the campaign with a genius that at once proved him capable of managing more persons than himself in life. He came for the license and the preacher at four o'clock, as late as he dared, alowing for punctures, etc. He phoned the preacher to be at the garage. He planned to glide past a host of Vinita boys going dow n back steers and past the gossips of Big Cabin under cover of darkness, hide the preacher in. the office at the lumber yards until most of the "regulars' had eaten; then by quick action he could swoop down on his bride like Lochinvar of poetic fame, carry her away on the Katy southbound before the unsuspecting and dumfounded boys of Big Cabin could recover themselves. The plan worked. The guests at the hotel knew nothing of a wedding until they saw it going on in the parlor. But things went not so smoothly at Vinita. Here Dock struck a snag, not being accustomed to the wiles that lurk in tho larger cities. The minister was at the garage at 4 p. 111. sharp. Dock's dog and auto were there also. The preacher, the dog and the auto were still there at 4:30 p. m., but no Dock. It was pretty cold, too, but the doctor was warm enough. Some wise ones over in the court ! house were attending to his tempera ture about as follows: (Enter Doctor from Big Cabin, self- I.

The r.tate first agreed to pay 35 cents per yard. , Wednesday the board said tney naa accepted Dick's price as set forth in his requisition 4"i cents and placed the responsibility on the warden. Thurs day Dick said the requisition was only advisory and the board's duty was to see that the price was reasonable and the quality of the goods correct. Finally, the board and warden agreed in placing the responsibility upon the penitentiary storekeeper who is not attending the hearing. Warden Dick said that in making the requisition, he reliod 011 the judg ment of his storekeeper, who had talked with John Whayne, sales agent for the Falls City Clothing Co., the jobbing house that sold the khaki. Ho said he made no inquiry into price or quality, observing that was, what the board of affairs was "there for." He admitted that the state had made a bad bargain and called it "mistake number one." He said the bargain was so bad that no more goods would be bought of the Falls City Co. Discussin the controversy in which the board, the warden and the cloth ing company engaged in before the price was reduced nine and on-e-half. cents a yard, Dick said opinions varied as to what the price should be some placing it a3 low as 19 cents. He ad mitted that he had been "lost in. the shuffle" and didn't "know khaki from broadcloth." Questioned as to the clothing com pany's assertion that the cloth cost them 29 cents, at the mills, Dick said he thought the concern was a "pretty poor buyer." E. B. Howard, secretary of the board questioned Dick as to the qualifica tions of the storekeeper and later sought his opinion on the general proposition of competitive bidding. The warden declared that the plan of buying supplies by competitive bids was a farco. He was sure the pur chase of a sample would be economi cal, for the state. There has been a rumor since the senate recessed last week, that evi dence was brought out in executive session, that the Unitod States gov ernment bought the same class of cloth as purchased for the penitentiary at 19 and 22 cents per yard. Senator Franklin and Chairman J. Elmer Thomas, questioned both Dick and Howard as to their information oa this point. Howard said that a "certain em ploye" had wired through Bird Mc- Guiro to the government at Washing ton for information regarding the- cost of khaki to the United States.
