FORT KLAMATH, June 1. (Special)—Having been a resident of Wood River valley for over 50 years, during which time he has been a citizen in three different counties while living in the same house, has been the experience of Fred Loosley, a prominent rancher of this district.
Mr. Loosley came to the Klamath valley in 1870 with his father, John Loosley, who was employed in the Indian service. At the time Old Fort Klamath was still in its heyday of soldier life. With the officers, ladies and enlisted men present, the garrison was the center of trade and social activities.
