ALASKA'S POPULATION <
. I
A well know., defender of Bradyisa
?ml torvisiit in Alask*, speaking:
through the little knocker which grasps
with avidity anything which knocks
Alaska umI which champions Brady
b cause he, like it. opj>oses everything
fjr which Skagwav stands, defending
Bradj's slanderous ejntenuon that the
pei ilation of Musk a is setting smaller,
asks the IV. ly Alaskan to give the cen
? is of the low. s which he says "were
taken last summer when there were
mare people in the north than there
are tcda\."
To an-. ?> i r toe Inference first, the
Ctnsusofth- t< . .?< in Alaska were not
takin la t sun.ui' r by Gov. liraJy or
anyone else, nor has any census been
taken since except iu two or three
towns, and the combined population of
these hits shown a sulwtantial gain at
each census over the precediug one.
The las' o< .is..s of Ala-I.a was taken
in l!H*> wheu the total was found to be
83,.~4? of which 3>.H3t> were Icdians and
whites, negroes, Chinese and
Japanese, th ? whiles being jt)..">07.

Not only has the population alon?
the Alaskan coaat and the Yukon river
increased since 1900 but it is since
that date that the movement up the
streams and valleys of the district ha*
taken place. Doxeoa of regions of the
district, to which space forbids mention
at this time, are supporting large
?miners of settlements that wore not
I'ven visited by enumerators in 1900.
The very fact that the gold product
ion of Alaska has increased 300 or 400
per cent, since 1900 and that the samlon
jutput has more than doubled and that
there are dozens of other industries
sarried on now that were unknown
then gives the lie to His Incompetency,
iv ho never misses an opportunity to
traduce Alaska.
ANOTHER WONDER OF SCIENCE.
Ululogy has Proved that Dandrufl la
Cauril by a Germ.
Science Is donlg wonders these days In
tiitllclne .13 well as In mechanics. Since
\d im lived, the human race has been
rouNeJ with dandruff, for which no hair
'reparation has heretofore proved a sue
? sful cure until Newbro's llerpicltlo was
?ut on th>* market. It Is a scientific prep
ntlon that kills the germ that makes
i I'lruff or scurf by digging Into the
Up to wt at the root of the hair, where
-aps tho vitality: causing itching scalp,
a! ins hair, and Anally baldness. Wlth
t lan.lruff hair must grow luxuriantly.
? Is th<> only destroyer of dandruff.
