8. W. JAMISON, (icu'l Mgr.
rill? Voting Doctor Won Ills Urlue by Treat?
One of tho prettiest romances that
has come from Alaska reached a happy
ending in the announcement of tho
wedding of Or. Clnrertco Dickinson and
Miss Josephine Block.
A little over two years ago Dr. Dick?
inson, a young graduate of the Cooper
Medical institute, was ?lt.', to Kodiak
as physician for the Alaska Fur Com?
pany. Misj Josephine Block, a beauti?
ful brunette, in her seventeenth year,
wan the acknowledged belle of Kodiak,
and tho young tic,-tor moou succumbed
to her attractions.
Two year:-; ago Dr. Dickinson, from
being an obscure young graduate of
tho Cooper Medical eolioge, suddenly
sprang into fame. The schooner
White was shipwrecked and tho
wretched Burvlvors tramped through
miles of ico and snow before they
could reich a settlement.
Finally some of tho survivors reach?
ed an Indian village, and a party of
Alaskans, under the guidance of a
Russian priest, started out to carry re?
lief to tho helpless Btragglers. Later
ou the survivors wero taken to Wood
Island, where they wore placed under
the care of Dr. Dickinson.
The young doctor was totally un?
prepared for the advent of seventeen
men, many of thou: horribly frost?
bitten, with limbs that needed Instant
amputation. He had not. the neces?
sary instruments, neither had ho as?
sist: nts to help in the surgical opera?
tions. Without an im'tuut's delay,
however, In.' Bel to worK lo improvise
Instruments from knives and other
weapons thai wore at hand and took
off arms, !, ;:s. (Itigcru and toes with a
skill and tenderness thai won him the
r ttltudo and admiration of his unox
jx1 ted patients.
"i way In which her admirer rose
to the emergency i:: the White disas?
ter was not lost upon Miss Josephine
?lock. Dr. Dickinson booh became tho
favored suitor, and, although the
young lady was; sent to school at the
Sacred Heart convent. In Oakland, Cul.
intimate friends of the family knew
that the two young people were en?
gaged. Dr. Dickinson came to visit
Iiis family In California. A day or
two ago .Miss Block loft her convent
and went to tho residence of Dr. Dick?
inson's father at Stockton, and the
wedding took place very quietly.
Kvnporateil Onloni lor Klondike.
A number of persons in Portland,
Oregon, have been experimenting In
the matter of preparing evaporated
vegetables, with a view of supplying
Alaskan miners. The most desired
ihing of the kind is evaporated on?
ions, and some trouble, has been ex?
perienced in preparing these in a sat?
isfactory manner. It has been found
that not every kind of onion can be
evaporated satisfactorily. Only tho
very best quality <>f onions will answer
tho purpose. An onion-grower who
has been experimenting with various
kinds of onions has at last found one
kind which Alls the bill perfectly. A
large tin case full of the evaporated
onions prepared by him was exhibited
by a Third street dealer and though
thoy looked much like shavings, they
smelled and tasted like onions, and
made one's eyes water to look at them.
The man who has found out the best
kind of onion for evaporating does
not give out what variety it Is, tis he
intends to use all of the kind ho can
get hold of. There will be plenty of
evaporated fruits aud vegetables to
supply all bound for Klondike next
spring. Tho onions spoken of cos;
about f:0 cents a pound, and a sack of
onions, it is said, only makes three
Hunt Alligators for si Living.
"There are men in tho swamps of
tho south who make their living by
hunting alligators," said a man who
j lias just returned from that region.
"Their mode of hunting the Saurians
is very ingenious, as well as success?
ful. In the summer, when the swamps
dry out, the alligators which abound
there in largo numbers, live in holes
ten or morn foot deep and inclined or
3lanting. The weapon of warfare; used
upon these creatures is a long pole,
at the end of which is a sharp steel
prod and hook. This is run down in?
to the hole and the alligator is prod?
ded until he becomes mad, then ho
snaps the book like a fish and is im?
mediately caught. He is then drawn
lip to tho mouth of the hole and is
shot through the eye until dead. The
teeth are extracted and the hide cut
off. Both are sold at some near by
place. Some parts of the alligator are
eaten, if it be young."
Tlio (juubii's Cigars.
It is well known that Queen Victoria
has a great dislike of smoke, so much
m) that she does not allow smoking in
her immediate neighborhood. And
yet the cigar bill for her ?guests is a
very heavy one. The principle item is
the thousand of the finest Havana ci?
gars which are specially made for her
and sent to Windsor in glas Btubes her?
metically sealed. It is said that the
Queen's cigars could not be had even
in Cuba at wholesale prices under five
shillings apiece. The men who make
them receive thirty cents for each ci?
gar, and none but the oldest and most
skilled workmen are entrusted with
heir manufacture. At this rate thoy
ran earn a small fortune, for 300 ci
gars a day can be turned out by tho
most expert cigar makers.
A Great Pointer's Lain* Hand.
The right, hand of Verestchagin, the
Russian painter, is. In splto of the
wonders he has accomplished, a lame
one. His thumb was so badly bitten
by a leopard some years ago that It
had to he amputated. On the field -of
batttlc the middle finger of his right
hand was made useless by a shot. By
:i fall on tho Steppes, later, the centra
hones of tho same hand were shat?
tered. Nevertheless, Verestchagin is
me of the foremost painters in Russia,
tnd makes as dexterous use of his
right hand, lame as it ia, as any man

GUMBO OF MONTANA.
A. Soil Which Has the Staying Qualities
H. M. Parchon and Henry Klc'.n
have returned from a trip to Cascade
county, says a writer in the Helena
Independent. Everything went well
on the trip oc.t, but returning they en?
countered a heavy thunderstorm with
a fall of rain, and in a few minutes
the road was made almost impassable
The soil is'thick clay, of the oid?r
known in some localities as gumbo,
and when a little water cornea in con?
tact with it a substance not unlike
glue is the result. The wheels soon
became so weighted with the stuff that
travel in the wagon was lmpo3?il I \
and it was resolved to take eh .1; o;
afoot. There is a peculiarity ah. ut
gumbo that it sticks like fly papor to
everything that one doesn't want :t to
remain attached to. and it somehow
won't stick to the ground long car;
to step out of it. The members of.the
party first tried tiptoeing along. Grad?
ually the sticky substance accumulated
under the balls of their feet until they
were lifted far from the surface of the
ground, and still it accumulated more
and more, Dumbo is not as light as
some other substances, either. IIa h
foot that a pedestrian raises from the
ground adds several pounds to his
burden of woe. There is a limit to a
man's carrying capacity. When lie
has acquired a stilt on each foot that
weighs 126 pounds or so he feels like
stopping to rest or rid himself of the
burden, or both.
Mr. P?rchen was the first, it is said,
to try to kill: himself loose from It's
appendage of mud. Poising himself
on one heavily laden foot, he kicked
out with tiie other with all his might.
Hut one can't kick gumbo from his
shoes. The n.:lT lias been known to
resist the efforts of the pie's. Mr.
P?rchen had not calculated on that.
When ho kicked the momentum of the
heavy weight carried him forward on
that toot, and to save himself and re?
cover his balance he was forced to
thrust bis other foot forward with
considerable vehemence. That loot,
too, was. heavily laden with the same
sort of mud, and the momentum of it
bad a similar effect. As each foot be?
came heavier by the accumulated
weight of jmmbo each other fool be?
came heavier. 100, .so thai the increas?
ing brake upon the pedestrian's speed
was compensated for by the increasing
momentum furnished. The accumula?
tion had grown to alarming figures, if
expressed in pounds, and Mr. P?rchen
encountered an up grade and was
saved. He secured Implements tit ted
for the purpose and managed to scrape
off the bottom of his shoes, making a
nice new surface for more mud 10

A cow is the last creature one would

HOW OREGON WAS SAVED.
It Would Hnve Tloen n Ilrltlsb Possession
but For n Mule's Instinct.
Dr. Marcus Whitman's horseback rieb?
of more than 3.000 miles from Oregon on
his way to Washington to insist Upon our
government taking possession of Oregon,
to prevent it from falling into British
bauds, is graphically described In The La?
dies Home Journal by George Ludiugion
"More than once, indeed frequently,
during thai journey in the winter of 1842-3.
a winteroi' unusual severity." writes Mr
Weed. ?!):? Whitman leads the way
through risers whose waters arc frozen on
cither side Buffeting tho w aves of foam?
ing currents, he plunges with bis hurst?
completely under water Blinded by Storni
in every direction, he Is compelled tore
main ten days in a gorge Hope dies even
in hi- courageous heart One thing scorns
Inevitable?tho snow must be his dying
bed and winding sheet and the moaning
w inds his dirge. Believing that his life's
journey i:; ended, with that toward Wash?
ington unfinished, ho dismounts and kneel?
ing in tho snow he prays for Oregon and
for her who i:i loneliness is praying lor
? him, unconscious of this special danger.
"'Man's extremity is Cod's opportu?
nity.' So runneth the proverb which Dr.
Whitman was not repeating when it was
verified in a way suggestive of sudden
transition from tho solemn to the almost
ludicrous. A mule, with stubbornness
stiffened by tho cold, yet with instinct pre?
served, pointed with his long ears in one
direction, then another, as if seeking tho
way, and at last, plowing through tho
snow, bccaino a unique guide where tho
human had failed, leading the despairing
company through drift and canyon to tho
camp of the previous night. That mule
ulso saved Oregon to the United States."
