Ernst Beihl, tho popular grocer, and

Oilman's Hall. They expect to com-1 <

lias some valuable properties in uic
Klondike country.
People in Douglas are not lacking in j
public spiritedness, and when called
on for anything for the. good of the
town are quick to respond, generally,
but there are some who have not caught
the Alaska spirit of enterprise. Every
one should labor for the good of the
town even though intending to remain
but a few weeks or months, for, as Rev.
Wirt said some months ago in a sermon
at Juneau, the most of you are here for
gold, perhaps to beautify some home,
or to make u new one back in the states:
that is all right too, but you should re
alize the fact that some of you will bo
here five years from now, some of you
ten years from now, some of you will
die here. Hence everyone should help '
improve and beautify and in every way
make this town a desirable place in j
which to live. The man who comes!
here for a day may become a porina-1
i 1 1
nout settler, and the man who comes I
to locate may move away to-morrow.! '
Make yourself at homo and perform j
your share of the public duties, bo they
social, educational, municipal or rolig- 1
ious.
Wants a Wife.
While at Wrangel last week we were j
asked if there were any marriageable |
young girls in Douglas City, by a good
looking young niau who is in search of
a wife. Of course our reply was that
we are well supplied with beautiful; ,
young girls, but1 whether or not they',
wish to get married wo were una bio to \
say. We would like some information !5
on this subject.
Anna Mabel's Dress.
Little Anna Mabel O'Brien gave a I
Calico ball at the Opera House iu Ju- i J
neau last Wednesday evening, which | J
was well attended. Anna Mabel is a J
prime favorite in Juneau. Everybody j J
was supposed to wear a calico dress,! 1
but thero were some failures in that re-!;
spect. Anna is but thirteen years old j
and she made her own dross, but we do j J
think she is a better singer and jig dan- !
cer than a dress maker. J

The Kerry Lumber Co. of this city J<
will put up a building 24x40 feet on the J
water front near the Star brewery as !
soon as the work can be done, and ! J
which will be used by the company for j
a planing mill and the manufacture of J
moulding. Genoral shop work will al- j
so be done. It was the intention of the ! J
company to llrst. put up a saw mill, j j
| but this has been put off until after the J
planing mill is in running order. Mr. j
Kerry went to Seattle to buy the nec- J
essary machinery for this new enter- j
prise. This enterprising company will J
also put in a first-class wood yard in j
connection with the planing mill and J
will furnish a better grade of fuel than ! j
has ever before been sold in this-city. J
