AXEL NELSON KILLED 1

DOUGLAS, Oct. 11.?About ten o'
clock hut night while working under
neath & scout on the beach just south
of tho Douglas Dairy barn, Axel Nel- 5
son was instantly killed. 1
Nelson, who was a carpenter, was I
doing some repair work on the scow i
during low tldo and was underneath, <
tho scow being held up by jackscrewB. :

time but people on the street above !
him, heard the scow fall, and rushed to i
the rescue but ufter his body was ta- <
ken from the beach it was found that i
his neck was broken and that the body
was badly crushed. It (s thought that i
the cribbing under one of the jack
screws slipped causing the scow to
fall.
Nelson, who was about 40 years of
age, was a native of Sweden, and had
been on the Island nearly two years.
He had been working as a carpenter
and was employed as a boss on the
construction of the concrete office
building at Treadwell a conplo of
years ago.

"BOBBY SERVICE"
DAWSON CABIN
SEATTLE, Oct &?While Robert \V.
Service hoe been on the battle front
n Prance, playing handball with death
>y throwing bombs from a lacrosse
?ncquet at the Germans trenches, a lot
>f tourists have beon visiting Daw
ion and tearing his cabin to ploces
ind cutting on up tho logs for souvon
rs, says the Seattlo Times. The big
moose head which hung over the door!
>f tho humble shack near the summit
of the Dawson Hill, has been cut to
pieces, and unless the souvenir hunt
ers are stopped the cabin will soon
bo no moro.
All of this Is very exasperating to
many Northerners, who have a high
regard for "Bob" Service, not because
he has won fame in tho literary world
but because of hia manly attributes.
Northerners also have a sentimental
regard for Service's cabin, and they
are ever hoping for the day when
he will come back to inhabit it
Far be it from these people of the
North to be inhospitable. They are
the embodiment of tho spirit of hos
pitality which Service immortallzod
In many of bis verses. Strangers may
come and help thomsolves to the game
of the country, to their furs, oven to
tho gold dust from their mines, but
taking Bob. Service's cabin, piece by
piece. Is stretching the bounds of hos
pitality to the breaking point, and they
have written to The Times In protest
against It. . I
CabltvJ* Loved
Tho Northern people lore this ca
bin as they love "Bob." Service. Ser
vice is a quiet, diffident man?yet one
who always did his share and more of
the work on the trail. He never was
too tired to do the thousand chores
around a camp in winter. When ho
made the long mnsh from Edmonton
to the mouth of the Mackenzie river
and thence across the dread Rat Port
age to Fort Yukon, a Journey that
occupied a year and a half in tho wil
derness. Service bore more than his
share of tho hardship and agony of the
journey.
When fame and recognition had
come to this Northern bard and he
was called to the otusldo, ho dldnt
want to leave the North and the peo
ple he had come to know and who
had como to know him. In the cabin
on the hill that he occupied they
found pinned to the wall the verses
of which the following stanzas are
a part:
"Oh, dear little cabin, IVo loved you
so long.
And now I must bid you goodbye;
I've filled you with laughter, I've
cheered you with song.
And sometimes I've wished I could
cry.
Your walls, they have witnessed a
weariful fight,
And rung to a won Waterloo,
But oh. in my triumph I'm weary to
night?
Good-bye, little cabin to you.
I hear the world call and tho clang
of the fight:
I hear the hoarse cry of my, kind;
Yet well do I know as I quit you to
night.
It's Youth that I'm leaving behind.
And often I'll think of you, empty
and black.
Moose antlers nailed over your
door:
Oh. if I should perish my soul will
come back
To dwell In you, cabin, onco more."
Versea Have Appeal
Some critics say tho lines are not
true poetry, but that makes no dif
ference to the Northerners. The vers
es have an appeal to them, for they
express the feelings which Northern
ers can understand.
Inside of the cabin are a number
of inscriptions and mottoes wrltton
by Service when ho was struggling
for the recognition which later came
to him. Tho raspberry bushes and
lowers which Service planted are
stUI in the yard.
The cabin belongs to Mrs. Esther
Clark, whose husband purchased it
because of the magnificent north and
south view of the Yukon which it fur
nished. Mrs. Clark rented the cabin
to Service and when the Northern
ooct left the Yukon ho turned It over
to Major Noble. Mrs. Clark's will pro
vides that the cabin must not be sold,
but must be kept as Service left it.
but If the vandalism of the tourists
is kept up for another summer, there
will be nothing left of the sourdough
habitation about which Northern peo
ple feel so much sentiment.
WHALING SEASON IS ENDED.
SEATTLE?The steam whalers Star
II. and III., which have spent the
lummer killing whales In Alaska wa
ers, have arrived to lay up for the
vinter. They report a successful sea
ion, with results almost the same as

rhe whales were big and fat, though
tot so numerous as last year. Sperm

The Starll. narrowly escaped de
itruction when charged by a huge

QUARTZ WILL BE
DEVELOPED SAYS
DR. A. H- BROOKS
FAIRBANKS, Sept. ?1.? "Others
may bo discouraged as to the quartz
possibilities of tho Fairbanks district,
but I retain tho same opinion express
cd some years ago, that this will yet
be a good quartz camp," said Dr. Al
fred Brooks yesterday, while being
interviewed regarding his trip over the
creeks. "At the present time, the
quartz industry is not as active as it
was some timo ago, but that is be
cause the owners of the properties
are waiting for choaper fuol," ho con
tinued. "As soon, however, ub wo get
some coal here at a reasonable price,
I think tho quartz industry will be
rnoro flourishing."
Regarding the antimony mining,
Dr. Brooks said that neither he nor
anyone else in the country had paid
a great deal of attention to it here
tofore, as the demand for the ore was
not great, but now tho industry is
interesting many people. At the pres
ent time, it is being mined in a num
ber of places in tho United States,
but there are only a few places where
tho ore is as free from lead as it is
in the Fairbanks district and for that
reason it is particularly valuable.
Just what the antimony industry
will amount to after tho close of the
war, the geologist is not willing to
hazard a guess, as he things it will
depend upon the attitude of tho world
powers toward disarmament. If the na
tions now engaged in the mighty
struggle in Europe wear themselves
__
out, with nolthcr winning a decisive
victory, it is probable, ho thinks, that
there will be a .demand for antimony,
which will be used to replenish the
?mmunition stores. The whole in
dustry is bo uncertain, however, that
Dr. Brooks does not know what ad
vice to give to the people contemplat
ing entering the business.
The one thing the geologist feels
certain of, however, is that the quartz
industry of the interior will amount
to a good deal after cheaper fuel is
! landed here. And everyone will ad
mit that Dr. BrookB has been mistak
en very few times in regard to the
raining industries of the North.
Dr. Brooks has been inspocting the
work now under way in the interior,
with the exception of that at Circle,
and this ho will not have an oppor
tunity to look over this fall?(Fair
banks Times.)
Astounding.
A number of tourists were recently
looking down the crater of Vesuvius.
An American gentleman said to his
companion:
"That looks a good deal like the in
fernal regions."
An English lady hearing the remark, ;
said to another:
"Good gracious! How theso Ameri
cans do travel!"?(Chicago Herald.)
