WHAT BECOMES OF
SHIPS THAT SINK
PUNTER. Sept. 4.?To the Editor:
?What becomes of the ship that sinks
in mid-ocean? If it is of wood, it
takes, in the first place, considerable
time for it to reach the bottom. In
a hundred fathoms or more of water
a quarter of an hour will elapse be
fore it reaches bottom. It sinks very
slowly, and when the bottom is reach
ed it falls gently into the soft oozy
bed with no crash or breaking.
Of course if it is laden with pig Iron
or copper or iron ore. or if it is an
iron ship, it sinks rapidly and some
times strikes the bottom with such
force as to smash in pieces. Once
sunken a ship becomes the prey of
the countless inhabitants of the ocean.
They swarm over and through the
boat and make it their home. Be
sides this, they cover every inch of
the boat with a thick layer of lime.
This takes time of course, and when
one generation dies another continues
the work, untiy finally the ship is
so laden with heavy incruitations,
corals, sponges and barnacles that, if
wood, the creaking timbers fall apart
and slowly but surely are absorbed
in the waste of the sea bottom.
Iron vessels are demolished more
quickly than those of wood, which
may last for centuries. The only met
als that withstand the chemical action
of the sea aro gold and platinum,
and glass also seems unaffected. No
matter how long gold may be hidden
in the ocean it will always look the
same when recovered, and this fact
explains that many romantic and ad
venturous searches after hidden sub
marine treasures lost in shipwrecks,
and alas, seldom, if ever recovered.

ALASKA SERBS
AT THE WAR ARE
ALIVE AND WELL
Sam Mandlch, a well known Ser
bian resident of Juneau, who headed
a contingent which left here for the
front shortly after the war was de
clared, writes under date of July 19,
from Skoplje, Serbia, to Emery Val
entine, as follows:
"Just a few lines to let you know
that I'm alive and well, and 1 hope
that you and yours are the same. I
have written to Juneau several times
but have had no replies, and I fear
my mall has miscarried.
"Soldier's life Is a tough one and
still tougher when we can get no
money. Of course fighting is the
greatest sport in the world, but un
less we have the coin we have few
luxuries. I want you to see
and tell him to send me some money.
t'l have suffered a great deal since
I came here, although I am now per
perfectly satisfied. There is no use of
me writing any war news as you are
getting the news there as fast as we
can get it here. I expect that you
will soon hear some news from our
front, and hope it will be better than
what you get from the other fronts.
Of course, we are just a handful, but
it is a 'hot fire.' Just think, no ene
my is on our soil, and we hold sever
al spots of the enemy's ground. We
have lost several of the boys from
the United States, but all the boys
from Juneau and Douglas arc alive
and well."
Mandlch gives his address as 1 Do
brovolj Battalion. Company 6, Gde
bude, Serbia. The "gde bude," has
reference to forwarding his mail to
where he is stationed on the battle
front.

ANOTHER LETTER
FROM TRENCHES
A letter received several days ago
in Juneau and written by a member
ot the British army from the trench
es in France under date of August 4,
reads in part as' follows:
"I am writing this whilst both sides
are sending shells over, they have
been at It since two o'clock. They
usually have two or three turns a day,
?gave us a pretty heavy one yester
day morning, and we had to get in
the dugouts and await events. For
tunately no damago was done. About
75 per cent of the shells never do any
damage at all. Yesterday some fell
only a few yards off. One we heard
on top of the parapet. I found shrap
nel lying on the sand bags in the op
ening of the dugout?but wo are used
to it all now. We have been now sev
en weeks right off in tho firing line,
and expect another three weeks be
fore we are relieved for a rest which
will be well earned.
"The second day we got in wo had
nasty nerve-shaking shock by a part
of our trench being blown up by a
mine. We do the same to them. At
first one always thinks of it as being
on top of these things, as one never
does know where they really are. We
can hear them sapping underneath,
very often, and our engineers find
them and blow them out before they
have time to do their work.
"I wont out one night grass cut
ting about 40 yards from the Hun
nish trenches, and could hear the men
talking. Some of them were out too.
We had to lie flat when their ma
chine guns played over us. They send
up flares which light up all over the
place. I could hear the bullets hit
ting the ground. Another time some
of us went for rations four days run
ning. We got shelled every day at
that Job. To the Germans we call
out sometimes, and they to us. Once
they put up a notice on board to the
effect that they had captured 27,000
Russians?a Hindenburg victory. I
think myself, and the general opinion
is that the Russians have done magni
ficently considering the great disad
vantages they suffer from the huge
front and the heaviest share of the
fighting, which is theirs. But we
shall win in the end, anyway.
ALAMEDA ARRIVES.
?With a record cargo of freight for
