The Juneau fans generally 1 were cock-sure of the outcome. They had It doped up in advance that it would be impossible for Douglas to win, so they offered bets of two to ) one on their men, and got some takers ( at those odds. t Instead of taking back any Douglas J money, they returned on the first fer- 1 ries weighted down with chagrin and | discomfiture. The Jelly crowd, the good smokes, the pleasant play will make you happy day by day. Play pool at Burford's and take the kinks out of your liver. 2-16-tf. FOR SALE ? House and lots in Douglas.
