Frank Leslie's Illustrated New-paper.
The timber line on the mountains
seems to me to lie remarkably high,
and the shrubbery, grasses, and
mosses occupying still higher regions
afford splendid pastures in the sum
merfor moose, caribou, ibex, and
mountain sheep, and in the winter
even supply food for immense herds
of wild reindeer.
The river valleys of Alaska are us-,
ually wide and rolling, and covered
with interminable forests of birch,
spruce, willow, poplur, cottonwood,
and some of the smaller varieties of
needlewood. Throughout those
primeval timber lands the soil con
sists in the summer time of a thick,
spongy layer of moss and lichens fair
ly soaking in moisture. The closely
woven vegetation has for centuries
made it impossible for the sun to dry
out this peaty soil, and the moisture
retained makes the land unfit for ag
riculture. I have found in several
instances, however, large tracts of
timber land through which forest
fires have raged, and in which the
peat has been burned out. The ashes
and the sandy soil under the moss
and lichen, mixed through the ages
with rich humus from decaved vege
tation, in such cases, produced perfect
tangles of wild flowers. The density
and variety of Alaskan vegetation,its
quantities of wild flowers and berries,
argue in favor of agriculural possibiN
ities. It is true that from two to live
feet below the surface one may strike
at all times a layer of solidly frozen
ground, yet the same fact has been
shown to obtain with the great wheat
fields of Manitoba and the Northwest
Territory. Only potatoes and turnips
have, been tried in Alaska, and both
have yielded remarkable crops. I
was surprised not to find anywhere
among the white traders aid mission
aries any hot beds, for the use of
which the climate seems to be partic
ularly adapted. The summer season
is short in months, but in point of
hours of sunshine it is equal to about
six months of our summer. By the
gift of the midnight sun, Providence
lias intended at least a partial equali
zatton lor the beneht of the poor
ine tunara land is a dreary moor
which frames the western shore of
Alaska. It consists of deposits made
by the great streams, the Yukon,
Kuskokvim, and Nushagak, through
the ages. All theso streams are full
oi urmwoou and sediment; and are
gradually building new territory out
into Iiehring Sea. The tundra is,
therefore, practically delta land, con'
sisting of a stratum of sunken and in
terlaced water-logged driftwood, cov
ereu wnn sut or clay on which a
layer of peaty vegetable remains,
forming a foundation for the endless
moss. Throughout this immense
plain of "made" land there are pools
and lakes and dead rivers which are
inhabited during the summer by mil
lions of ducks, geese, and cranes, who
have developed in that region the
great breeding ground of the world.
The numbers of these aquatic birds
which are seen on a summer through
the tundra are simply beyond compre
hension. I myself have seen the skv
black with geese as if a swarm of lo
custs were descending, and I have
also enjoyed the peculiar sport of
hunting wild geese with a club. The
tundra moss is liberally mixed with a
moss-like plant, bearing a blue berry,
which geese and ducks consider a rare
delicacy. It seems to me that some
profitable industries might be derived
from the existence of these husro
Kvery where in Alaska is secured
every year a magnificent output of
land furs, not to be surpassed. There
are mink, marten, land otter, white,
red, black, and silver-tipped dear.
giay timber wolves, marmot, ground
squirrel, muskrat, ermine, wolverine,
and probably some varieties have
been omitted in the list. The annual
catch of seal and sea otter is generally
known. .The salmon canning indus
try of Alaska is being rapidly devel
oped, there over twenty established
canneries in the territory at the pres
ent time. Yet there are many other
pursuits which may be and which
will be followed to advantage.
