Ikirkland
Is In Seattle's Pathway
EVERY DOLLAR HAS A
HUNDRED CENTS
And like mankind was made to work.
ARE YOUR DOLLARS WORKING FOR YOU?
Did it ever occur to you that the earning capacity of a few dollars wisely
invested is greater than that of the average man?
Four or fir e hundred dollars invested in Seattle Second Avenue property
thirty years ago have since earned mere than one man working steadily at
$100 per month could earn in 200 years.
It wasn't so many years ago that a Second Avenue clothier of Seattle ad
vertised a sale of men's ?uits and to each purchaser he gave a waranty deed to
a lot on the Western shore of Lake Washington; at that time nothing but a
wilderness. The suits were soon worn out and cast aside but those lots to
day are worth from three to five thousand dollars each; for the city of Seattle
with a population of over 300,000 has grown out to the Western shore and is
NOW crossing the lake to the EAST SIDE AT XIRKLAND.
Seattle's population has increased 30 per cent, in the last four years while
that of XIRKLAND has increased over 300 per cent, in the same period of
time.
Seattle cannot spread to the WEST because of Puget Sound. It is shut
off on the SOUTH by the Duwamish flats which are flooded in the high tide
season. The rough and broken territory to the NORTH does not invite its
growth in that direction. It must of necessity spread to the EASTWARD
and today XIRKLAND finds itself right in the PATHWAY OF SEAT
TLE'S FUTURE GREATNESS.
The opening of the Lake Washington canal will give to SEATTLE and
XIRKLAND one of the largest and finest fresh water harbors in the world.
Now is the time to put a few dollars at work for yourself in Kirkland.
Residence lots in the Capital Hill addition beautifully parked with
splendid view of the lake, the city of Seattle and the Olympic mountains at
$125 to $175 each. Business lots two blocks from the City Hall at $400 to $500
each. Terms one tenth cash and balance $5 or $10 per month.

BRITISH ACCOUNT
OF DISASTER IN

(NOTE?The following is the
British Admiralty's account of
the disaster to the fleet of the Al
lies in the Dardanelles engage
ment of >iarch lStli in which the
British ships Irresistible and Ocean
and the French ship Bouvet
were destroyed, and the British
ship Inflexible (not Invincible)

the total French and British loss

upon the fortresses at the Narrows.

At 10:45 a. m. the Queen Elizabeth.
Indexible, Agamemnon and Lord
Nelson bombarded Forts J. L. T. U.,

George fired at batteries F? E? and
H. A heavy fire was opened on the
ships fromx howitzers and field guns.
Mine Sinks the Bouvet
"At 12:22 o'clock the French squad
ron, consisting of the Suffren, Gau
lois, Charlemange and Bouvet, advanc
ed up the Dardanelles and engaged
the forts at closer range. Forts J.
U? F.. and E, replied strongly. Their
fire was silenced by the ten battle
ships inside the straits ail the ships
being hit several ti:n?.-s during this
part of the action.
"By 1:25 p. m. all the forts had
ceased firing. The Vengeance, Irre
sistible. Albion. Ocean, Swiftsurc and
Majestic advanced to relieve the six
old battleships inside the straits. As
the French squadron, which had en
gaged the forts in a most brilliant
fashion, was passing out the Bouvet
was blown up by a drifting mine. She
sank in thirty-six fathoms, north of
Erenkeui Village, in less than three
minutes.
Two Battleships Sunk
"At 2:36 p. m. the relief battle

which again opened fire. The attack

terminated when darkness fell.
?The damage to the forts affected,

with the current, which wore encoun

jand this danger will require special
1 treatment.
Two More Ships Sent
"The British casualties were not at j

determine upon war until after re- j
turning from Norway, and as late as
July 27 Gcrmnn ambassador in Lon- (
dan firmly believed In peace. But the .
Kaiser upon his return from Norway f
conceived the idea that Russia and j
France wore unprepared, whllo inter
nal troubles in France and England
tempted him to precipitate the war. (

SEARCHING FOR THE KARLUK'S ?'
VICTIMS '
- ? +** ?? -
(Seattle Times.)
The hunt In the Arctic wastes for
the eight victims of the Karluk who
wore last seen on the ice packs in
the Mld-Arctlc ocean Is hardly likely i
to be crowned with success.
The unfortunates who failed to es
cape from the grip of the North when
the whaler wont to her doom long ago
in all probability rendered up their
lives to the grim gods of cold antl
storm.
The chances thn'. they managed to
reach shore is small. The llklihood
that they have survived, either as a
result of their own efforts or through
the assistance of friendly Eskimos is
remote. If they have weathered the
long winter they will have accomplish
ed a modern miracle, for the odds
wore all against them.
Even such an experienced Northern
traveler as Stefansson would have but
a slight chance under such circum
stances. Today there is every reason
to believe that the discoverer of the
"Blond Eskimo" and his companions
also arc dead. Men experienced in
the ways of the Arctic entertain little
anticipation that they will come forth
alivo.
Nevertheless Stefansson had dem-|
onstratcd a remarkable aptitude for
meeting and overcoming such obsta
cles. In his jaunt to the mystorious
tribe with the strange characteristics
he lived for fourteen months practic
ally alone and dependent upon the
country he traversed for food. When
men despair for such an explorer,
there is naught left to hope for the
Karluk's unfortunates.
At the same time, well wishes will
accompany the steam trader Bclvi
dere on her expedition. Nothing
would please civilization more than
to see her return with the missing
eight, for whom at present all hope
has practically been abandoned.
THE WAR THROUGH A KNOTHOLE
(By any correspondent of the pres
ent-day school written expressly for
any great American weekly.)
"Germany is harboring her resourc
es. Frogs-legs found on captured
Frenchmen arc being saved to use in
stead of hops. Hickory-nut shells are
carefully treasured, to be strewn on
the roads in case of an attack by the
barefooted Turkos. Even tho luxur
ies are curtailed. Demi-tasse is now
served in half-cups.
"I am off now for Galloy.wost. I
have had enough of this war. Though
I didn't get near enough to sec any
of it, I know, from the accounts writ
ten by the fellows in the New York
newspaper offices, that it is a bad
business. I have 94 photographs of
myself, including 89 taken in tho same
group with other correspondents. I
also have a photograph of a German
soldier, the only one 1 saw during my
three month's stay. I prize it very
highly.
"Germany's attitude towards her
neighbors is most peculiar. She is
bitter toward Russia, England and
France, and friendly townrd Austria
and Turkey. This psychological state
of mind, 1 think, is duo to the fact
that the former nations are her ene
mies and the lnttcr are her Allies."?
