DECEMBER 10, 1015. j “Hope springs eternal in the human breast” but the very knowledge of the truth of that phrase sometimes casts the shadow of doubt over us, for we feel that the eternal quality of hope proves its creation to arise from some spiritual or mental quality rather than from the firm foundation that the thing hoped for is promised or likely. The abov * is a hightoned way of saying that we are all hoping again that next year will be a great one for Seward, but that after hoping so much ami so often we might be inclined to come to the conclusion that we are ped dling to ourselves. However, it looks this time as though we can confidently look forward to a great and good and prosperous nineteen hundred and sixteen. The vor\ fact that over three millions of dollars are to be spent w ithin about a hundred miles of the city is enough to promise at least one splendid season. Such an amount of work alone would be sufficient to bring prosperity to any town of this class and Seward has far more to look forward to than mere railroad work. No. this t»me the hope i.> not that which is sent to us, as the wind is tempered to tne shorn lamb, to save us from the gloom which accompanies the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, but it is a hope resting firmly on the foundation of a perfect confidence that at long last the dawn of Seward's success is about to dispel the shadows of the long, weary night. Prohibition seem- to be getting to be near the rage all over the world just now and it is a subject which interests everyone. It interests the man j because le m*gh; 'ike his cup, to use the poetic phrriso and it interests the! woman because she doesn't like her man to indulge. In various places we can see thousands of very good people who are opposed to prohibition and this makes us pause* to think. Such people would probably never oppose prohibi tion if they relieved that in doing so they wer» performing an act of im morality. There must be something else behind their action, and this some thing else is probably the feeling that you can never make mankind moral by legislative acts. It is a positive fact that any man who is a man has some bad habits. In pilfering the forbidden fruits our first parents inoculated us with the germ of evil. There are times when a man, who has not become a mollycoddle. fe*!s that he has to let loose the restraint ig sw ings of propriety and indulge in something. If he does not follow the course of least resistance and step up against an inviting bar what will he do? Dear ladies, you can not place a halo about the heads of your hubbies or attach leathered sails to his shoulders. If you succeed in making your district dry and managed to give vour men pairs of angelic wings they would only use them to \oln!ane into the next state where there was something left to while away some tedious hour when even your own charms fail. ! ❖ LOCAL MASONS * | ❖ ELECT OFFICERS * ❖ - * There was a good attendance last night at the meeting of the Masonic Club. The breathern discussed at some length the advisability of arranging a Masonic lodge in Seward. The pro posal met with unanimous favor, but for several reasons it was deemed ad visable to defer organization for a short time. Nevertheless it was de cided to take the preliminary steps for the institution of a lodge in order that no time may' be lost when the club does decide to organize itself in j to a regular Masonic lodge. Masconically, the Territory of Alas ka is under the jurisdiction of the grand lodge of State of Washington, while the city of Seward is under the jurisdiction of the Masonic lodge ol Valdez. An important event of the evening was the elections of officers for the ensuing year, which resulted as fol lows: Leslie Cramer, president; Dr. J. M. Sloan, vice-president; Leon C. j Hooker, secretary; Sydney Anderson, Treasurer. General Committee; Hugh Dougherty, Leon Urbach, Rev. Edward H. Molony. The new officers; are all men high in the councils of the fraternity. Mr. Cramer, the new president is past master of * promin-1 ent lodge in Washington, D. C, All the officers and committeemen, with j possibly one exception, are Masons ol the 32nd. degree. Hereafter the Club will meet twice a month. The next meeting will be held on the evening of Thursday, December 23. The club now has 70 i members. Long distance telephone booth at The Branch.

The joys of Yuletide are of the spirit. Yet how much more keenly do we feel these joys because o: the century-old Christ mas customs! And one of the best of these customs is that we be dressed well for the gather ings of Christmas time.
