) J Gentlemen: !
, . I hereby acknowledge receipt of

\ ) ment of my claim for loss of sight, un
. . der my "3 in 1" policy, for $6,000.00.
' ' In looking hack over my experience \
\ ) I cannot help but feel very thankful
. . to your representative. Major Ransom, ;
?' for his insistent "do It now" which \
\ | he used when soliciting my business
< > last February. At that time I wanted j
' | to put off taking the Insurance for !
! six months, thinking I would then be
< > in better shape financially to pay for j
\ | It. although I knew at the time that !
! , my wife and little girls needed the pro
? ? tection. As It was, the policy was only \
J | received by me a few days before the
. i ammonia explosion which cost me the 1
? ? sight of both my eyes. )
J I I certainly appreciate the difference
. i between the "Three in One" of the 1
? 1 Northern Life and the Life only poll- J
) ) cles as written by other Life Insur- ?
? > ance companies, which would have
? ? been a burden under my present cir- J
! I cumstances. while as it is, I have re
? ? ceived the face of the policy in cash j
II and my Life insurance is not affected j
! ! thereby. Again thanking the company
for the prompt and satisfactory settle- j
| I ment. I remain !

At a meeting of English manufact
urers in London recently the follow
ing "ten commandments' were read
by Sir George Pragnoll, who said they
had been circulated in thousands
throughout Germany during the last
three years:
1. In all expenses keep in mind the
interests of your own compatriots.
2. Never forget that when you buy
a foreign article your own country is
the poorer.
3. Your money should profit no one
but Germans.
4. Never profane German factories
by using foreign machinery.
5. Never allow foreign eatables to
be served at your table.
j>. Write on German paper with a
German pen and use German blotting
7. German flour, German fruit and
German beer can alone give your body
the true German energy.
8. If you do not like German malt
coffee, drink coffee from German col
9. Use only German clothes for
your dress and German hats for your
10. Let not foreign flattery distract
you from these precepts and be firmly
convinced, whatever others say, that
German products are the only ones
worthy of citizens of the German Fa
therland.?Philadelphia Public Ledger.
VALDEZ. Sept. 19.?Thursday was
automobile day. no less than three
cars having left Valdoz over the wa
gon road. The big "Kelly" truck,
owned and operated by E. Nelson, was
the first to get away with Fairbanks
for Its destination. Two passengers
were aboard and a large quantity of
fast freight was taken. Mr. Nelson
arrived here on the steamer Evans
from Juneau, where he has been oper
ating the big truck.
Buck Hoyt's "red devil" combina
tion freight and passenger car was
?ext to get away for Hoyt's head
quarters at Gulkana. Buck went to
Seattle and returned on the Evans
with the Overland car. He expects
to do a good passenger business be
tween Valdoz and Gulkana. He took
a cargo of wet goods.
Charley Day sent his Ford machine
to Chltina, where he has sold It to
Bob Sheldon. Mrs. Miller went as a
passenger as far as Ernestine road
Joe Stanton, the Gulkana mall car
rier, also got away Thursday- with a
big load of supplies for the roadhous
es along the trail. Fred Edmunds,
from the Gakona ranch also left town
this morning with a load of supplies
for the ranch.
The United States has ordered her
soldiers withdrawn from Mexico
where they were no longer needed
and the foreign policy of President
Woodrow Wilson that was made sport
of in Europe some months ago has
been fully vindicated. Europe Is not
making sport of President Wilson's
policy now. Only a few days ago the
London News, in an editorial on di

Count A. G. Frerizel, u well known
character around Tanann for the past
eight or ten years, is a prlsonor ot
war at Dawson.
Tho Count la German by birth, and
belongs to the naval reserve of the
Fatherland. When the call was made
by Germany for the reservists to re
turn home ho received notice to go.
He had served In tho Gorman army
during tho Boxor trouble In China, and
had several badges of honor and a
(commission as a naval officer. He is
very patriotic, and when the news
came that the fight was on he could
not resist the temptation of showing
these to some friends in tho Tanann.
As an omployoo of tho United States
transport Jacobs he went to Eagle
about six weeks ago and told some
of his companions why he was going
to quit at Eagle. From Eagle he went
to Dawson with tho mail carrier. In
sonio way tho mall carrier gained the
confidence of tho Count, and from
what ho heard while at Eaglo conclud
ed that he was in the presence of the
enemy. This ho reported to the mili
tary officers at Dawson. An investi
gation was instituted, tho tell-tale
badges and commission were revealed
and the Count became an honorable
prisoner of war, as there wore no
i'ans or photographs of tho defenses
of Dawson found in his possession nor
other evidence that would lead one to
believe him to bo a spy. He will
doubtless be held a prisoner of war
until tho war Is over or Canada^ is
taken by tho Germans.
Count Frenzel was at Grant creek
prospecting a few years ago, and lat
er took In the Indian river stampede.
He has also engaged in various pur
suits at Tanana. He Is an expert
violinist and composer, and we may
look forward to several variations on
"God Save tho King."?Ruby Record
In view of the truce between the
government and the opposition, it was
merely an act of good faith to sus
pend for one year the operation of the
Irish home rule bill. In the regular
order of things it will take its place
on the statute books upon the adjourn
ment of Parliament and then remain
ineffective while the national emer
gency forbids the renewal of political
controversies. That a satisfactory set
tlement of the Ulster question was
about to be reached was evident just
before the outbreak of war. It is made
more than ever certain by Mr. As
quith's renewed declaration that "any
coercion of Ulster is absolutely un
The one jarring note in the hour of
conciliation was struck by Bonar Law,
whose faculty for leading his party
into awkward situations never fails
him. His ill-timed display of partisan
ship and the conduct of his followers
in leaving the House served to set in
higher relief the attitude of John Red
mond in expressing the hope that
when the Ulsterites and Nationalists
were fighting shoulder to shoulder
a new spirit would arise in Ireland to
make a real settlement possible.
It should be forever reraeipbered to
the credit of tho Nationalists that in
the grave crisis confronting Great
Britain they were among tho first to
rally to the defense of the nation and
to put all other considerations aside.
Tho picture of Bonar Law, on one
hand, threatening in time of war that
the Unionist party, without conditions,
would support Ulster by every means
in resisting home rule, and of John
Redmond, on the other hand, inviting
the Premier to visit Dublin at tho earl
iest date and promising to stand be
sido him in calling for recruits who
would testify to tho desire of Irish
men to aid Great Britain, marks the
difference between bigoted partisan
ship and patriotism. ? New York
Socialists, it seems', show themselves
made of the same stuff as other peo
ple when it comes to a question of
actual warfare affecting their country's
interest. The volumes of anti-war pro
fessions of the Socialists of Germany,
France and Belgium will remain to |
their credit even through the begin
ning of the conflict finds them sup
porting the government and serving
In the armies. Belgian Socialists have
sworn their strongest allegiance to
the Kaiser. Two Socialists are mem
bers .of the French cabinet, and surely
that was a hasty and unthinking as
sassin who struck down Juares at a
time when he might have been of the
greatest service to his country.
Apparently, the only Socialist op
position to the present war has been
on the part of Keir Hardie and the
British Labor party, and that has a
subdued note. Patriotism fuses a lot
of other isms all well enough in tlmo
of peace but of secondary importance
when it becomes a question of Nation
al defense.?New York World.

Those who hope for peace at at early
date will find no .encouragement In
the new treaty between Qreat Brltian,

Unless all the conclusions of Admir
al Mahan are wrong, sea power must

upon the results of this conflict. Arm

War 1b a contest also between forces
other than those that are In arms.
Tho combined wealth of Great Britain
and France, exclusive of dependencies,
is three times greater than that of
Germany. British and French com
merce, twice that of Germany, Is pro
ceeding, while that of Gormany is
paralyzed. No matter what tho ordin
ary fortunes of war on land may bo,
tho tlmo must come in such a strug
gle as this when the Issue will have
to bo met at sea. Even a triumphant
army cannot sustain a nation Bhut In
from its neighbors and impoverished.
It has been estimated that at the
time of Augustus, Rome ruled a pop
ulation of from SO,000,000 to 120,000,
000. The British Empire has a popu
lation of 435,000,000. At Its best, the !
yearly revenue of Rome did not equal
that of Holland today, $84,000,000. The
revenuo of the United Kingdom, ex
clusive of dependencies, Is $1,000,000,
Tho new treaty of London can have
no other meaning than that all the
resources of men and monoy of the
greatest Empire ever known have
been enlisted for tho war and are to
be thrown into the balance. It will

Tho department of Aisne is on the
northeastern French frontier. It has
been the scene of bitter lighting dur
ing the German retreat?for in this
department the Kaiser's troops turn
ed upon the pursuing Allies.
Area: 2,866 square miles.
Population, (1906) 634,495.
Tho surface of the department con
sists of undulating and well-wooded
plains, intersected by numerous val
leys, and diversified In the northeast
by hilly ground, which forms a part of
the mountain system of Ardennes.
Among its principal rivers is the
Aisne, on the north side of which tho
Germans halted after retreating from
the vicinity of Paris.
Large tracts of the department are
under wood. The chief forests are
those of Nouvion and St. Michel in
the north?Couc>v and St. Gobain in
the center, and Villers-Cotterets in
the South.
The department Is sorved chiefly by
tho lines of tho Northern Railroad, but
the main line of the Eastern Railway
to Strassburg traverses its extreme
southern sections.
Its military center is Amiens, which
is tho headquarters of the Second
Army Corps.
Other important cities are Chauteu

When the young Slnv of-Bosnian
birth fired his deadly shots at the
Austrian archduke a bitter hatred of
those whom ho regarded as his coun
try's oppressors steadied his aim. The
double murder accomplished, a sense
of his own deathless glory overcame
him and he boasted in grandiloquent
terms of his cowardly deed.
Llttlo did he dream, however, of
the consequences of his mad act The
nnme of Gavrio Prinzeps Is quite like
ly to be forgotten as completely as is
that of that great self-advertiser of
ancient days, "the aspiring youth who
fired the Ephesinn dome" in n vain
hope of therby acquiring immortal re
nown. Yet it was Prinzeps' hand on
the trigger that let loose the dogs of
war, the flash of his powder that pre
cipitated what promises to become the
greatest and most bloody conflict that
the world has ever experienced?Daw
son News.
Things are getting mixed up these
days, and there are some things we
can't understand. Take for instance
Alaska's delegate to Congress. We
could understand what it meant when
he was first a Republican, then an In-'
dependent, then a Bull Moose, then a
Democrat, then a Progressive Demo
crat, but now he has us stumped. A
contemporary quotes him as declaring
that he is not a Democrat, but a "Pro
gressive Independent." Now what in
the duece 1b that? ?Cordova Alaskan.
