FIGHTING ON THE YALU RIVER
[Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan.]

Teachers Miy Be Eugagr-d
The Skagway school board is consul,
ering the matter of engaging teachers
for next year early in the spring instead
of putting it of T until summer time.
The principal reason which suggests
this plan of action to the school board
is that it might have a wider field from
which to choose tea hers. It is be
lieved that the very best instructors
should be secured for the wages paid in
this city, and by waiting u .til July
n early all of the best teachers will
have been engaged for the year.
An early election is also regarded as
only fair to the teachers already em
ployed If they are not to be re-en
gaged they want to know it so they can
apply for other positions.
The board has hesitated before acting,
(>ecause of a desire not to arrogate to
itself any of the prerogatives
that may more properly belong to the
next board. If any great objection
shall be urged against the plan it will
probably be dropped.

A LASTING EEEECT
Th'? Evidence Shoold Prove Every
Claim Made for Dom'i Kidn y
Pill* in Almka
Relief from the pains ai-d aches of a
bad back is always welcome to every
backache sufferer; but to cure a lame,
weak or aching bac*. is what's wanted.
Cure it so it will stay cured. It can be
done. Here's the strongest evidence
to prove it:
W. W. Lee, painter of Willis street,
n< ar Placer street, Redding, Cal? says
"Like the majority of men who
follow my calling, if the action of the
ingredients usdd in the business was
not the primary cause of kidney com
plaint, they certainly aggravated it
when the attacks occured. I do not
want my friends and acquaintances in
Redding to think that Doan's Kidney
Rills bare radically cuaed an old
chronic case of kidney complaint like
m'ne, but this I can conscientiously
say, the treatment undoubtedly did me
a vast amount of good. Anything that
helps a man whose back has ached so
badly that he cou'd not sleep at night,
who many and many a time when at
work could hardly push a brush to and
from him without suffering almost un
endurable twangs, is pleased to obtain
a remedy w hich brings relief. To say
that Doan's Kidney Pills relieved me,
very mildly expresses the amount of
benefit 1 received from the treatment."
