SEWARl), ALASKA, WEDNESDAY, OC TOBER 4, 1916 During the past five yea»*s the people in this country have learned a tremendous lot about what are known as the Balkan states. It speaks badly for the system of edu cation in the United States that until the first Balkan war, took place the people on this continent knew very little ol the little kingdoms who have now shown that they had developed themselves to a wonderful degree. English speaking Americans actually despised those nationalities and supposed them to lie nothing but conglomerations ot mongrel and semi-civilized beings until the Bulgarians drove the Turks from Adrianople and to the very walls ot Constantinople. At once the light Hashed on the world that the Bulgars were a people of brilliant martial quali ties. that they had exercised the highest type of intelli gence in military preparation and that their leaders were worthy to shape the destiny of a great power. Then came the struggle of little Serbia against the great Austro Hungarian empire and the world was treated to a spect acle of splendid heroism and extraordinary determination and cleverness. Now comes Koumania for the first time into the war arena. She is opposed to the great military organization of Germany and Bulgaria and yet she crosses the Danube and takes the hull by the horns as she crossed the northern frontier and made the Austrians for a time fall back. How ignorant we have all been of the organizing ability of those peoples. It is funny what a self-satisfied opinion we have had of our own superiority. Let us hope that if the time ever comes when the United States has to face an enemy in the field this complacency will not be punished by humiliation. Fifty thousand dollars a month is some payroll for a town like Seward, especially when it is only one, if the greatest, foundation for the city's prosperity. During the whole winter Seward will also he the base of a lot of work beyond Mile 71 and the day is coming very near when all the travel to and from the interior will pass through it. This citv is now as “solid** a community as could be found % • anywhere in the world. It is sound to the core. Every • • house and building is occupied and more would be occupied if they were built. We are a little short of houses, a little short of men for the work. In other words it is in a per fectly healthy condition. Towns that have over-grown have rotten edges that fall otf like the rotten boughs of trees. Seward is green and fresh and healthy from the root to the topmost branch.
