ington crack player and Thomas G.
Mac Donald, for three years a tower
of strength in football in Seattle and
at the "U," and the Juneau High
8chool team, organized and coached
by Mr. Perkins.
Four games were played. The
High School team were twice defeated
by the Treadwell team, in practice
contests and the Alaska Gastineau
team won the championship from their
Treadwell rivals, beating them the
first game 21 to 0. and playing a great
tie battle on Thanksgiving Day, 7 to
7. In Juneau the sport was boosted
by the late James Hay Whipple, him
| self a football lion while in school in
the California University at Berkeley,
Bart L. Thane, quarterback for the fa
! mous *99 eleven at Berkeley, and oth
: ers identified with the game in years
I gone by. At Treadwell Supt. Robert j
j A. Kinzie and Assistant Supt. K. P. I
Kennedy, formerly California football
men, took an active interest in the |
; game, and when the season was over ,
plans were made for a more extensive |
schedule in the following year.
In 1914 the Alaska (lastineau Min
ing Company decided not to go in for i
football, owing to the change in the
j company's development program,
t from construction to operation. Ev
ery man who would have played foot
I ball was needed at his work. In spite
of this condition a team was organized
I In Juneau by B. B. Brewster, and was
composed almost entirely of young
men from the city. Treadwell went!
into football with determination, the j
Islanders were whipped into shape by
Coach McDonald and the result was a ;
trouncing for the Juneau boys 75 to 0.

The "Rolyat"
Among Juneau's most progressive'
retail stores is the ice cream and
candy parlor knows as the "ROI
YAT." This business was started
about six years ago by \V. \V. Taylor, j
a candy maker of thirty-five years' ex
perience, and, in his profession, sec- j
ond to none in the Territory. Mr.
Taylor specialized in Victoria Choco
lates and high grade bonbons, but in
addition to these lines he makes a
large variety of taffies, wafers, brit
tles, caramels, etc., covering the en
tire line of popular confections.
The appointments of the "ROI.r
YAT" are strictly up to date, and
the place is fitted with a modern so
da fountain and boxes for the use of
its: customers. This store is without
question is the best of its kind in Al
aska. There have been many in
stances when tourists have purchased
confections while passing through the
city and then have sent in repeat or
ders by mail. One order of this sort
was recently received from llollis.
New Hampshire for several pounds of
"ROI/YAT" sweets.

^ ? Juneau Music House ? ^
!
June?.?J b*? imo?ig h*?r business j
houses the only purely music store in
Alaska. This is the Juneau Music
House, owned by Klmer K. Smith, of
Douglas, and managed by J. P. n. j
Craves, of this city. The Juneau store
is a branch of the Douglas house, but
deals only in music and things con-|
nected with music.
Mr. Craves came to Juneau in De
cember of 1913. to take charge of the
store and in February of 1914 brought
his family here to make Juneau their
home. Previous to coming to Juneau
Mr. Craves had for years been asso
ciated with the Filers Mus'c House
in Seattle. The Juneau store carries
a stock which ranks the establish
: ment easily on a par with any house
j of the sort in the large cities below. I
[ Every variety of first class piano is
to be found in stock, including the
well known Chickering. Filer's. Chase
and Hakerv, Bush and I*ane, Knight ,
Brinkerhoff. Weser Bros., etc. In
stringed instruments are to be found
there the famous Cibson. Stewart and
Washburn makes of various types.
Perhaps the greatest drawing card
of the store is the unusually fine line
of phonographs and phonograph rec
ords which covers practically the
world's output. Mr. Graves makes it
a point to have always in stock as
many records as possible of the lead-'
ing performers throughout the world
of music. Kdison. Columbia, and Vic
trola machines and records are ready
for the customer's choice every day in
the year, and every night in the year
as late as ten o'clock. The slogan of j
the store is "Serve all the people with
courtesy." and Mr. Graves, and Miss
Graves, who assists him. certainly live i
up to their slogan.
In short, everything that the music
lover wants is to be found at the
Juneau Music House, and the wide
range and variety of the stock, to
gether with the prompt and courteous
attention given all comers have made
the store one of the most popular es
tablishments in the city, in fact in
Alaska.

The Alaska Grill
The Alaska Grill is noted for two
things?its cuisine and its compan
ionship. For many years, in fact ev
er since Mine Host Radonich convert
ed it from a smoke-filled waffle kitch
en to one of the best restaurants in
Alaska, the Grill has been a real in
stitution in Juneau. Here meet the
workers, the businessmen and the
fans; they all belong to the big grill
family, and in the famous beefsteak
?arret overhead, many of the capital
city's banquets to notable visitors
, have been held.
The suecess of the Crill has been
due to' the popularity of its com
mander-in-chief.
