A matter which may strongly tend
to strengthen the already strained
relations between the Dominion and
the United States has presented
itself In connection with the limits
of the Jourisdlction nt points nd
inccnt to the boundary line between
Alaska and IJritish Columbia.
The result of the recent investiga
tion was reported to the government
here. Valuable uold fields, it is
claimed, which have been discovered
and which are now being worked
on tlio Yukon river, are in British,
and not in United Stntes territory
as lias all along been suppo-cd.
These gold fields, it is represented,
will bo of great value, and as the
American oilicersin Alaska dispute
the claim that the deposits are in
Uritish territory, a conllict between
tho miners, who believe they arc
working on United States territory,
and the British authorities, who
assert jurisdiction, is feared.
The provincial government of
British Columbia Is now Issuing
mining permits, and in the absence
of any definiteinteriiational boundry
line it cannot but follow that in
many instances they arc granted
without knowledge as to whether
they are in United States or British
territory. It is evident the time lias
arrived when serious international
complications can only bo averted
by a definite location of tho boundary
line between Alaska and British

Ai'i'r.ns Fon Puis. A, prominent
fruit grower who used to feed about
300 hogs each year, said that he
always feeds his hogs plenty of
apples and he never lost a hog with
cholera, nnd he believes that it can
be prevented by eating apples.

the end of that t mt e more than half

ly to be the case. Each succeeding census
for several coming decades will doubtless
show a slacking up in the rate of advance,
ment westward, and finally the direct for.
ward movement must cease. Bearing in
mind the narrow vision and the mistaken
forecasts of ntir early legislators it seems
hazardous to conjecture with regard to
future probabilities. Yet there is pood
reason to believe that not for many years

to show visitor. The doctor went on the
roof null him ono day to see about repair

Immediately the doctor replied, "No
don't lot's do that. Any ono can jump
down. I.m's go down nnd soe if we can
jump up." Tho lunatic considered tho
point "well taken" and agreed. The head
of a private asylum in England was in die

bathe, when ono of them called out, "Let's
duck the doctor!" and they nil took up
the cry. Seeing his danger, thu doctor
said nipnicc, "All right boys, but suppose
you give him a choer lirst," and the cheer-
ing brought the keeper In to his rescue.
