It is custom at Lander for the

that he was shot.
Hurried calls were made for physicians,
but the little fellow died be

had been shot in the heart, but exactly
how it happened the wounded

was also unable to explain it. The
explanation is probably to be found
in the unconscious carelessness of
handling the rifle. The inquest will

The sleds in general use are 7 feet
long, 17 inches wide and 7 inches
high, and an immense load of freight
can be packed and lashed on them.
The sled is guided in the rail by a
pole, known as "G" pole.
The dogs are hitched about six feet

On the creek beds there is often

Immediately after getting out of
the water it begins to form in littl e ice

team of dogs will lie down on the
trail in their harness and go to picking
and cleaning their feet, which are
rarely ever sore or frozen, unless they
have been in water several hours.
From the last snow, in the spring
until the first in the fall the dogs have
but little to do. At the trading posts?
Dawson, Circle City, Fairbanks, Eagle,
Minock?and a number of other camps
where they have fair streets or roads,
the dogs are used to draw light freight
about in little two-wheeled carts, and
they are used in i;he mines and on the
trails for packing. The pack saddles
are made of heavy canvas, and the average
dog will pack thirty or forty
Some dogs will li? down in the mud
or water with their packs on, while
others seem to feel the responsibility
of protecting their packs, and are exceedingly
careful in picking their way
through thick brush or over fallen
trees that obstruct the trail, leaping
over pools of mud and picking their
footing with great care on the small
'rocks in fording the streams. They

dried salmon, but failing this, bacon
has proved the best substitute. It is
cut in small pieces and boiled in a
quantity of water an hour or more, and
then flour, corn, meal, rice or boiled
oats is added and cooked well in the
greasy water until the whole becomes
a thin, smooth mush. Each dog has his
own pan, and it is filled with the food
and carefully guarded by its owner
until pnnl and then eagerly devoured.
The native dogs "will steal anything

more tempting they dote on

characteristics as the Indians of the

and dog, care for one only as long
as he feeds them.
