'k jMf'l l? I ho >'lr?t of m Chain
of .lurh Hospitals.
The Post-Intelligencer of the 2nd con
t tins a picture of w^jat it classes as the
first hospital of Skaguay, the Red Cross
Hospital, and a portrait of its founder. In
connection therewith it states:
Dr. Frank H. Booth is just nowjn the
public eye as the founder and chief execu
tive stay of the movement to build a chain
of Red Cross hospitals throughout Alas
ka. It was largely through his efforts
that the present Red Cross hospital at
Skaguay, notable as the first institution of
its kind to he rented in the wilds of the
Northwest, was established. Dr. Booth
states confidently that before lojig the
society will establish a complete chain of
h??spitals from Seattle the southern ter
minus to Circle City a tinv desolate speck
of life within the dim borders of the Arc
tic ring.
Dr Booth is now on his way to Chica
go. There he will join his family and to
?r her the\ will journey back across the
bins through Seattle to resume the work
of lo\r in tlkr northern fields of hai.\;hip,
peri! and deprivation, building hospitals
and nursing the sick, sheltering the help
| le>v .inJ 111 istering in unseen ways to the
life and health md cheer of the hardy
seekers .uter gold, away in the barren
reache> ?>t tlie ureat Northwest.
I he chain or hospitals which Dr. Booth
has set his h aid to building will take in
on the w > Seattle, Victoria B. C. and
the cities o. J.ateau, Skaguay, Lake Ben
net. White Horse, Stewart river, Dawson
and Circle C ry. As soon as the new
gol?J hek. > ... ? discovered and camps spring
up, the v.i. mi w ill throw out branch lines
until no , u! it^l district shall reach
bevonu it- call and cane.

In an Jre^s at th; United Club of
London J :' }o, Lord Salisbury said:
?'Th^ is a cloud upon the hori
zon. It is thi \. ir of two nations between
whom we art neutral. With one we are
bound wi'h every tie of kindnrd, similar
itv of in i'ru i ns and religion Theother

lean cpIv s. * that I wish the day mav
speejilv arrive when the terrible slaughter
between the tv\ o nations will cease and the
world again be restored to peace."
Though oa a asual reading this may
seem to be a mere diplomatic utterance,
vet the new ^papers of this country and of
f England all find in it a strong expression
of Great Erit in's friendship and partiality
for tli^ Uniicd Slates.

"Oh, yes we have," came the quick re

grow."
"I fear vou misunderstand me. Of
course vou have many estimable people
whom posterity will naturally look back
upon with respect."
"Plenty of them."
"But a nation that does not recognize an
aristocracy cannot expect to produce peo
ple who can boast of blue blood."
"Is it a question of th e color of corpus

"Of course, that is figuratively speak

"Well, there is not the slightest occa

"Certainly not. People cannot expect
to miss what they never had."
"And especially not if they don't need it
and are in a fair way to get something
better. Your blue blood, figuratively
speaking is well enough now, but this is
a progressive world, and you may depend
upon it a time will come when people *11
over the globe will regard with particular

red, white and blue blood in his veins.
