What is th« best way to spend the long winter evenings in a town like Seward ? There ir> no man or woman who does not get terribly bored once in a while no matter how hard they struggle to feel contented. Lhe more work one has to do the less, of course, is the chance to suffer boredom, but work . iso has its drawbacks and brings the desire tor change. Work as we will 'V loaf as wo will there comes a time, maybe each day, when eveiything looks "blank and bleak and grey." This is probable the time when the husband and wife ha\e thoir little spats or when tho other sort o' tellow invites hi?* tiiend in to h»i\e a shot. Both kinds aiv di> -iputinir in their ow n manner but neither of them is all the time conscious of the act. until the married man next morning hears old K. E. Morse knocking at tin door and telling him through the keyhole to say "never again, dear, and "never again repeats in equally doleful a< eents the gentleman who became perforated w ith shots the night before and opens his eyes to see the >ame old R. K. Grets pointing the linger of scorn at him. The only nifforenco between the two kinds ot dissipations is that at the end of each spat the married man or woman says to the life partner “I m sorry 1 ever met you." ami the fellow that indulged in the other dissipation sa\t» the same thing about the shots, but not till the morning after. But, all joking aside, the best way to spend a dull time is to take lots of good exercise in tl e open air. Get out anti walk ami keep the blood in c ’dilation so that you feel as though you had just taken about two drinks of wine or that your wife had just come to say it was all her fault. The t xhilaration of tin* woods and seashore and trosty' air has no mo’ ning after." Have you ever tried it and taken careful note of the effects? When tha: eight million dollars is appropriated next session, maybe next month, it will mean that some three millions of it will be spent between Sew ard and Anchorage. Mr. Kdes. you will remember, told this paper some time ago that the work of joining the two towns will cost between two end three million dollars, and he also told his paper that if all goes well the connection will be made next year. This work on the Alaska Northern will probably bring the sum to be spent between this place and Anchorage to the thiee mil lion.-. We i av .. h to 1 tl at the cost of putting the Alaska Northern in shape will bo about a quarter of a million. - Let us keep those facts in mind and we shall have no need to worry about next year anil what it means for us. __ __ SAVE YOUR CIGAR BANDS TO THE SMOKING PUBLIC: Whoever pre>ent> the greatest number of W.

ALASKA CIGAR MANUFACTURERS, SEWARD, ALASKA ;AMERICANS IN AIRWARSHIPS SEVERAL AIDING THK FRENCH ON THE WESTERN BAT V. TLE FRONT. — WITH THE FRENCH ARMY IN CHAMPAGNE, Nov. 13.—(Special to Gateway)—The Americans in the French Aviation Corps are making good, the air fleet commandant here told me today. There are six of them left; one, Jimmy Bach of Utah, hav ing recently been taken prisoner by the Germans. Among the others are Eliott Cow den, wealthy Bostonian and a good polo player; Bert Hall of Texas, lean, lank and goodnatured; Billy Thaw, ol Pittsburgh, Norman Prince ami some others. 1 saw Hall and Cowden to day. Both are “fast cruisers,” flyjng the swiftest machines in the squad rilla. George Carpentier, the famous French middleweight youngster, is a member of the same group. I visited the aerodrome x towards sundown. One by one the birds were coming home to roost, circling over the field, volplaning down, turning and rolling back on the ground under their own power. Down from one of the tiniest of these—a beautiful, short-winged creation in pearl-gray ami blue—stepped Hall. Seating him self on a runner he was helped out of his fur-lined overalls, Eskimo boots and other Arctic overwear. “Gee!” he exclaimed, walking up ami warming his hands before a ben zine flare lighted to guide belated pilots home. “Lordy, but it’s cold up there!” “I thought I was going to be late," he said, “1 got out pretty far. It is no joke landing in one of these little rapid boys like mine, even in the day time. And if it is getting dark the machine capsizes three-fourths of the time. lA'on Hourlicr and his brother in-law, Leon Comes, both famous French bicycle racers, were killed in the same machine only the other day on this very field in just such a stupid landing accident. Pretty tough to escape the Germans only to get smashed before your own door, eh?” The French air fleet is now as per fectly organized and in much the same way as is the high seas fleet. It has its powerful two-engined, double propellered pianos corresponding to J the dreadnoughts. They can mount The Miner's Store fRW J. COTTER, Prop.

The time to be measured is now and the place is: - -—————^——§— I to any altitude quickly, taking con siderable high explosive in addition to pilot and observer. There are super dreadnaughts, some with three planes and enormous engines carrying bombs enough to blow up a small town in ad dition to a cannon and machine-guns. There are scouts, “coast-defense” planes, escort cruisers for the slower, bigger, mightier air navigators. This is a big change from the first ships of first days of the war when an aeroplane performed any service its pilot was ordered to do. Hall, for example, never carries explosives. His duty, with his swift, short-winged biplane, is either to do scout service far behind the German front, or ac company a bombarding fleet and, like a destroyer at sea, ward off the enemy. When you read of the French air fleet bombarding some position or other in German territory, you may know that these lightning fast bi planes accompany it, scouting in ad vance and protecting it on flanks, rear, above and below. Other aeroplanes specialize on photographing; still others cruise be hind their own lines, coast defending, chasing or attacking with machine guns any German planes coming over. These “chasers” are so constructed that they can train their machine guns on the enemy from any angle up, down, fore or aft. All these machines are armored. The flower of the army is in the aviation group. The air service ap peals to all clases, but particularly the sporting element, and it can take its pick from many candidates. The, officers are exceeding smart and the underlings a very superior type. A German officer is quoted by a neutral observer at the front as say ing in reply to a request to get closer to the lines; “Don’t think of such a thing: To get inside the range of the French artillery is certain death!” here \m> there in THE NEWS OF THE DAY M1LWAU KKE, Nov. 17.—'Turkey growers today foretold high prices for Thanksgiving turkey because, they say, an affection called black head is killing hundreds of the din ner birds. Commission men are in clined to doubt that the disease will cause a pronounced turkey shortage. WASHINGTON, Nov. 17.—To de termine what 700 of the 20,000 per sons who registered in the govern ment’s Ft. Berthold, N. D., Indian reservation land drawing will get the claims, some of which are valued at $10,000 each, U. S. officials were fishing names out of the wooden box here today. Filings are to begin May 1st. NORTHONE, Minn., Nov. 17.— Twenty years ago today James Hort-1 on arrived here with $1, tried unsuc cessfully to borrow $50 to buy a piece of land, bought $1 worth of chips in a poker game, won $117, bought the land, sold the timber for $1,000 and now—is the richest man in town. VIRGINIA, Minn., Nov. 17.—Two blocks of Virginia were dry today. All the others are wet. This condi tion was caused by the court decision upholding the Indian treaty of 1855 I making dry certain sections of Min nesota together with territory “with in one day's walking distance of it."
