August 9, 1918: "Constable C.A.
Chapman who returned last night from Huckleberry Mountain vicinity,
where he subpoenaed a witness, reports that there was much excitement in
that locality last Tuesday over the fact that an aged woman and a
six-year-old girl, who were among the many berry pickers were lost in
the wilds there for 30 hours. They had left the mountain to go to a
nearby lookout station to use the telephone and got onto the wrong trail
and became lost. After much wandering around they finally
worked their way into Union Creek canyon where they spent the night and
where they were found the next day. Berry pickers, Klamath
Indians, Forest Rangers and other Government employees took part in the
search. It required three and one-half hours to get the woman, who was
quite tired, and the little girl out of the steep canyon." (Mail Tribune)
