LAST SUMMER IN COUNTRY
Foreign JalKr Imported and Wages
Have Been ltediucd from $15
to Sj!C per I)ay.
Captain R. II. Trombley, formerly of
LeClairo, but now a resident of Du
buque, and for years one or the best
known pilots on ths upper Mississippi,
was in Rook Island yesterday. Captain
Trorabley has but recently returned
from a season's operation on the Yu
kon river in Alaska and at the present
. time i3 visiting his mother, Mrs. Kate
Trombley, and sister, Mrs. E. Mo-
Craney, both of LeCIaire.
Captain Trombley states the Alaski
climate H the finest in the world in
the summer time. The air is pure an-i
heallhy and on a clear day a person
can see Mt. McKinley from the Yukon,
a distance of 303 miles. Captain
Trombley encountered pome heavy
rains, but never once heard a clap of
thunder or saw a. fljsh o' lis'itning.
He states the country is rightly styled
the "Iand of the MHnijriit Sun." F-r
six weeks during the summer it is all
daylight anj one can rrad a paper a;
midnight as well as at 12 o'clock noon.
In thr winter, however, thrre is but
two hours of daylight out of every 21.
Even in that remote country there js
a baseball organization known as th
Twilight league. The teams travel
distance of 1.0Q:1 miles to meet their
opponents and the games are started
at 12 o'clock at night. Pennies, nickel3
and dimes are unknown in Alaska and
the Yukon territory. Nothing short
of a 25 cent piece is accepted in trade.
Mlnra lMnyln Oat.
Captain Trombley makes the state
ment that the mines of Alaska are
playing out and that unless new dis
coveries are made soon there will be
nothing to keep up the country
Where formerly miners received $T0
and $15 a day hey are now, lucky if
they get $r. and $C, and the cost of
living is almost beyond the reach of
the ordinary man. Large corporation
companies h3ve bought up 'he mines,
imported foreign labor and reduced
wages to tbe minimum.
Start Alaskan Hoom Here.
Captain Trombley makes the inter
esting statement that the majority "f
the Alaskan booms are started in Seat
tle. It is Alaska and its trade that
has made Seattle what it is today and
in order to enliven the commercial in
terests of this city, every little while
they start reports of a big gold dis
covery in Alaska in th( hopes of again
starting a rush to that country. This
means the gold seekers will first go to
Seattle, stock up at that place with
their clothing and provisions and. after
leaving a large part of their mony
with the Seattle merchants, take pas

AWAKENED BY YANKEE GIRL
Miss Inez Mllhclland, Who Wants to

After trying with vigor, but in vain,
to convince the authorities of Oxford
and Cambridge universities in Englaud
that she should Ik? permitted to study
law at one of the two venerable insti
tutions Miss Inez Milholland of New
York sailed for America to try her per
suasive powers at Harvard.
Miss Milholland lias won fame as a
young leader of the suffragists. She
was recently graduated from Vnssar.
where she conducted a vigorous cam
paign in favor of women's votes.

ened her charm. Her bronze hair,
large blue eyes and well modeled fea
tures make her a classic type.
At Vassar Miss Milholland kept Pres
ident Taylor on the rack, inciting min
iature equal rights resolutions among
the students. When the suffragists of
the state journeyed to tbe capitol at
Albany for their annual hearing ou

Aside from her political tendencies.
Miss Milholland made no mean record
at Vassar. Her scholarship put her
well in the fore, and her athletic prow

As captain of the hockey team she led
her players to a victory that captured
the interclass championship. She was

Most pantomime characters were orig
inally borrowed from tbe Italians. The
first real English pantomime wns pro
duced at a theater in Lincoln's Inn
Fields in 1720. It wns called "Harle
quin Executed," and its subtitle wa.t
"A New Italian Comic Scene Detween
a Scaramouche. a Harlequin, n Coun
try Farmer, IDs Wife and Others."
The performance was very successful.
About the middle of the eighteenth
century the character of pantomime
performances was completely altered,
chiefly because of the genius of the
famous Grimaldl. who made the clown
the first figure in the pantomime. Gri
maldl first appeared at Sadler's Wells
theater, where he played the part of a
monkey. He was actively engaged on
the stage for forty-nine years, and at
the close of his career he took a bene
fit Drury Lane theater which real
ized nearly 000. He also received 100
from the Drury Lane fund. This was
in JnnelS2S. He died in 1837 and was
burled in the churchyard of SL James
chapel, rentonvllle Hill.

On account of the difficulty of keep
ing sponges in a sanitary condition. :
many people have discarded them en- !
tircly. However, it is easy to keep them
clean and sweet if in addition to rinsing
in clean, warm water after being used,
they are boiled once a week in water
to which has been added d teaspoonful ;
of Gold Dust washing powder and then j
rinsed through several clear, warm
waters. . Wash cloths should also be
boiled in Gold Dust suds and thoroughly I
rinsed, sunned and ironed. 1 hose of
