THE NEW MODEL 8 "SILENTSMITH" |
i"Wait a minute I" "Stop that type
writer until I get thru telephoning!"
How often you have heard this
or said it yourself and wished
some* one would build a typewriter
that was silent in its operation.
The new Model 8 "Silent Smith",
just out, fills this long felt
need. So quietly it runs that it
is more like the tick of a clock
than the clatter of the old style...-- j
typewriter.
So far reaching in its effects
. ^ on office efficiency that it
marks a new epoch in the type
writer industry. Backed up by
the quality mark of the L.C.Smith
4 Bro. Typewriter Co.,who have
long been the recognized leaders
of this industry, its advent is
even more important than the vis
ible typewriter over the blind.
It adds efficiency to the entire
office force.
The silent feature of the new
Model 8 is only one of the im
portant improvements introduced
in this wonderful machine.v Other
conveniences that you have long
desired on your typewriter are
features of the new "Silent
Smith".
The attacded coupon is for
your convenience. Pill out and
drop it in the mail and you will
receive a beautifully illustrated
catalogue of this new silent
typewriter.

CALIFORNIA OIL
SOUGHT BY NAVY
WASHINGTON, Oct 11.?Secretary
of tho Navy Danlela has assigned a
naval officer to co-operate with the
Department of Justice in securing ti
tle to oil lands in Bakorsflcld. Calif.,
district, valued at several million dol
lars. If the government can recover
these lands, which now ore hold by
squatters, Daniels said they will be i
retained for future use of the navy, i
Tho Secretary said ho has abandon
ed tho plan for the navy to secure oil
lands in Oklahoma, and to construct
a pipe line to get the product out.
All available money, he said, will be
invested In tho oil property which
can bo developed from time to time as
the needs of the navy make necessary.
BUSINESS IMPROVES.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 11.?F. A. De
lano, vice-governor of the federal re
serve board, returning to Washington
j from a trip through Panama canal
and across the continent, says: "Bus
: iness is picking up. This is true ev
erywhere except in the farming coun
? try of the West The farmer seems
to think he can got $1.25 again thlB
year for his wheat He can't but
he's holding it just tho same. The
fact that money Is easy makes it eas
ier for him to hold his crop for high
er prices, and I am afraid ho will get
fooled."

LARGER OUTPUT |
THAN LAST YEAR
IS CERTAIN NOW '
FAIRBANKS, Sept. 23.?Fairbanks ,
1b on the ascendant once more. Ac- ,
cording to R. C. Wood, president of ,
the First National Bank, the district ,
Is now certain of having a larger out- ,
put than In 1914. Early In the sum
mer, Mr. Wood informed a represen
tative of the Times that indications
were that the output would be larger,
but now he says that thero is no
doubt that the output will bo consid- 1
erably larger than last year.
Every month this summer tho out
put has been larger than tho corres
ponding month last year and indica
tions are that tlje same conditions will
continue for tlio remainder of the fall.
Last year tho opencut operators were
hurt considerably by heavy frosts and
cold nights during the early part of
September, and it is not likely that
conditions will be any worse this fall.
All opencut plants have done well
this summer, having had plenty of
rain for the greater part of tho time,
and having got an early start in tho
spring. The dredge on Fairbanks
creek started somewhat late, but it is
doing well and will continue to work
right up to the first of November
if possible.
Hllty's plant on Cleary Creek la
working full time, night and day, and
has Increased the output considerably.
Hllty and partners did not get as ear
ly a start as they had hopfc^ ,f9I\ but
thejr outjjuW frtfBTrtow-until the close
of the season, will help materially in
swelling the output of the district
The, Pedro creek operators aro tak
ing out more money than last year.
Ester creek is producing more gold
than In 1914. Cleary and Chatanlkn
are fully as good as last year and some
of the operators thing that tlicy will
tako out more money than in 1914.
The opencut operators in Fairbanks
creek are well satisfied with the re
sults of their season's work; while
the quartz men are taking out a little
money also.
From the Tolovana district a few
thousand dollars has been received,
but that district will opt show up as
a big producer until next spring.
With the Tolovana showing up
well next summer and all the other
creeks of the district likely to hold
their own with the operations of this
year, it is more than likely that the
1916 production will be greater than
any since 1912, and possibly 1911.?

$30,000 WORTH OF ORE
IN SIGHT AT BERTHA CREEK
SEWARD. Oct. 5.? Jim McCarron
came in from his property on Bertha
creek, a tributary of Granite and sit
uate about half way between Mile 34
and Sunrise, on the car yesterday af
ternoon on a business trip. Ho says
that he has a very good looking piece
of property, with at least $30,000 worth
or orde in sight. He will return as
soon as things freeze up, and -that
will not be long. He will install an
hydraulic plant on his property the
first thing in the Spring. Mr. McCar
ron speaks very highly of the mining
possibilities of that country, which
includes also Lynx, Taylor and Gran
ite Creeks.?(Seward Gateway.)
BUNNELL IS POPULAR
AT THE LOWER RIVER
A
FAIRBANKS, Sept. 23.?That the
people of the lower river, as well as
many others in the Torrltory, are al
ready thinking of election, which is
to be held a year from next Novem
ber Is evident from a letter received
here yesterday by Marshal L. T. Er
win, from his deputy, Thomas H. Long
of Ruby. That the people of the
lower River camp are also consider
ing Judge Charles E. Bunnell as a
possible candidate Is also evident, from
the same letter. The following is an
excerpt from tho letter:
'It is gratifying to hear the com
plimentary remarks regarding the past
term of court, especially In regard to
Judge Bunnell. It is to be hoped that
he will stand for the nomination for j
delegate, as I am led to believe that j
he would poll a large vote in this
part of the division."
None of the Fairbanks Democratic
party leaders would have anything to
say yesterday regarding the election
next fall, practically all of them say
ing that it was too far away to make
any plans at this time.? (Fairbanks
Times.)
