?'There will be ?."> to 100 miners at

Big Salmon district. There might be
more." So spake one who is heavily
interested in tnat country.

ingston syndicate, ia already in the
Big Salmon country. This syndicate,
composed of men connected with the old
Alaska Commercial Company, owns 10
claims below discovery on Livingston,
and it has worked out but two claims
and a half of the 10. Last year it took
out from 400,000 to *100,000 and it will
work more extensively this summer
than it did last.
The Big Salmon Hydraulic Company
at the head of which is a man by the
of Peters will work this ytar on a lar
ger scale than previously.
Other companies are preparing to
work on Livingston, Lake and other
creeks. Many individual minors wil
work on several creeks in the district.
Those who have interests in the B;g
Salmon country say it is one of the best
district* in the north. That it posses
es go d in abundance has been proven
beyond question. The only drawbacks
have been the presence of boulders in
the ground and the oost of transporta
tion into the country. The use of der
ricks and other machinery has mini
mized the difficulty with the boulders
and the transportation facilities are ira

It is characteristic of our neighbors
that their newspapers should treat as h
jest the idea that the people of Alaska
should desire to cut loose and annex
tneir territory to Canada. But the
matter is worth more thau a jest. The
Americans in Alaska have learned
some lessons, and have had experience*
which have led to much serious think
ing. They have been forced to see that
Canadian rule in the Yukon is incom
parably better than American rule in

KELLY&C0 ? Druggist
"Oentlemen," said the irenoral- he
wan chatting familiarly with his atafl
during a MWtloi of hMtUlttaa? ' "whut'
we call bra vory is purely physical.
Real bravery consists not in lighting
an enemy, but ourselves. Cowardice ?r
bravery is purely a matter of tempo
rary nerves."
"Nevertheless, general," mKI young
Captain Fit* Hush, "we honor the
brave and despise the coward. When
my nerve* go back on me I tni?:
enough vigor will be loft to enable mi
to remove myself from the world o'
I my disgrace."
" A puff of smoke appeared at one or
tin- embrasures of a bastion fort on
the crest of a hill, followed by a boom,
and a shell came plowing tip the
ground, burying Itself Ir a tree not a
doccn feet from the party. A fuse hiss
ed ami sputtered, burning rapidly to
the vent. Most of the offlc re present
either fell on their faces or ran as fust
as their leps could carry them. Fit*
Hush coolly walked up to the shell,
pulled out the fuse and threw It away.
"Well done, captain." said the gen
eral. "The battle has reopened."
There was a hard struggle. When the
fighting was over, there was as much
wonder that the young captain came
out alive as at his conspicuous braver}
One of his exploits, the leading of a
few men against an angle of breast
works wherein the guns were creating
havoc, was so conspicuous and so far
reaching In Its results that he was
decorated with a gold medal.
The war ended and Kit* Hugh was
a hero to the world for all time. Oc
casionally he would overhear some
one say: "That's he; the man over
there. They say he doesn't know what
fear Is," At army reunions, when he
arose to say a few words, he was so
violently cheered that he often gave up
the attempt. Ue was the pet of the
petticoats and the admiration of men.
The world of adulation In which he
lived became the only world he knew,
that which he had Inhabited before h i
honors brine forgotten. Yet his mod
esty never suffered. He would only
wear his medal at secial gatherings
with the little band who had helped
him earn It and to whom he alwaya In
sisted It belonged.
Thirty years passed. Fltx Hugh met
with reverses that brought on nervous
prostration. He was obliged to break
away and go on a trip. When he re
turned he was still weak, melancholy
and Inclined to study his symptom*
minutely, consulting doctors, beside*
doctoring him?elf. He recovered, but
was not the man lie had been a few
years before.
Ono day wlillc ho win at thf seashore

ito ugly. so strong. so brutal. so until or

That night, when all were asleep,

In his hand, emerged f;-om his room
and went to an ocean pier. There hf

what he held In his hand out Into th?
water and. htrninr. went to his mom.
The next day he did not appear. ni?
fiancee sent for him to r? down with
her to th" bench. Re went dowr
looking pale and hngpir!. She gu.-ss

were sitting on the bench, lower thnn

Tho lady was thrusting her hand into

they closed on something round and
flat and heavy.

He confessed to lier that he bad
thrown It Into the water the night b?
fore, and she knew why.
"It I* better to have been brave." she
said, "and lout ine's bravery than
never to have been brave at all."
When the ex-hero returned to th
city he married his flinece and settled
himself in a home, which lie resolutely
