Mountain chains and empties into the
Pacific, is today on a howling, yet
The rushing, whirling, terrific,
seemingly ferocious waters of the
Columbia are described by travelers,
just returning to this city from the far
northwest, as today the finest scenic
feature of the entire "gallery of
America's prize scenery," as the
wonderlands of that part of the north
west are known. Yet the rampage of
the Columbia only enhances the
beauties of the scenic attractions, for
the river's raviDgs are harmless, the
Titanic rock banks all along its
course giving absolute protection to
residents, settlers, farmers and fisher
men. Thus the Columbia River's
course is made the greatest of western
attractions for travelers this summer,
as, according to predictions, the ram
pages of the Columbia invariably con
tinue for great lengths of time.
With the receipt of the news from
the northwest, the issuance of the
book "The Columbia River," by E.
L. Lomax, G. P. A., Union Pacific R.
R.. is especially timely,-as 1t#ives the
entire history of the notable river from
the day df its discovery to the present
year, along with fascinating photo
graphs. Copies of the handsome little
book will be sent free upon applica
tion to E. L. Lomax, G. P. A., Union
