Churchill, Joe McComb ancf John McWilliaras return j ed on Tuesday of last week from a i hunting trip over in the vicinity of I Bear creek, ou Admiralty Island. They brought homo an abundance of deer meat, besides ducks and grouse, and a ! goodly supply of large, fat, juicy clams. Tho tale they toll of their experiences j is so full of those points thut make a i huntsman's fingers itch, that already j two partios have left Douglas for the j camp on Bear creek. They had with thorn two dogs; one a half Si wash cur j and the other a bird dog. Neither of 1 these had over seen a live doer before, but they surprised their masters by exhibiting a natural ability in hunting and capturing those wily animals. Tho crust on the snow was uot strong ; enough to hold the bird dog and after ;a few attempts ho repaired to the beach and awaited developments. But "Siwash" was in his element and could | frisk about on the white crust with per fect safety. lie took to the timber and i soon his vigorous bark revealed the j fact that he was on to something. Down through the brush, over fallen trees, i waded the frightened deer, delayed in : its movements by the deep snow iu which it sank at every stop. - ? * t .? . < it . i in h tew mmuies ne reacneu tue bench, swept clear of snow by the nc j tiou of the tides. But here it was that | the bird dog began his part of the per j formance. The door immediately took ; to the water and was making rapid ; strides for safety when the bird dog, who unhesitatiugly followed him in his j frigid bath, climbed on bis back and grabbed a convenient oar in his teeth to balance himself. His deership re i sented this arrangement and, ducking his bead, threw tho dog in the water. The dog climbed on again, and the per formance was repeated several times, I until it was a question whether the dog would drown the deer or the deer drown the dog. A rifle shot from the j shore striking the deer in the spine set tled tho contest in the dog's favor. ; Alaska abounds in just such oppor tunities for sport and we ure glad to [ uote that tho party above mentioned refrained from killing more gamo than they could use, and did not mar the eveut by ruthless slaughter. K. OF P. SMOKER. Last Thursday evening North -Star Lodge, No. 2, K. of P., of this city, gavo oue of their eu joy able smokers. We were fortunate enough to receive ud in vitation, and the appointed hour found us on hand. On entering the hall we discovered quito a number of small tables, al ready surrounded by an eager, laugh iug crowd, engaged in card playing. Chalk pipes and tobacco were liberally distributed about the room and every body was having a good time. We joined the players aud after be ing badly beaten in two games of whist we were ready for the program that fol lowed. A male quartette composed of H. R. Elliott, J. E. Haman, L. R. Gillette and George Burford discoursed sweet music for awhile. A lunch consisting of sand wiches aud coffee, iemonade, fruit and cigars was served, after which Messrs. Elliott and Burford entertained the as sembly with mandolin and guitar mu sic. i i Chancellor Commander Shepard took the chair, and after a few appropriate remarks announced a recitation (one of Kipling's poems) by Judge Gillette. Then followed impromptu speeches and several choruses, in which all joined, and another song by the quartet, after which all were surprised to fiud that! the hour was very late. The boys iu the K. of P. Lodge are royal entertainers and the Lodge is composed of a class of gentlemen that one likes to associate with. ?'GOD BLESS THE STARS AND 1 STRIPES." i Mr. O. M. Bernard returned last week from a short sojourn at the British city of White Horse, where he has been as a representative of the New York Life Ins. Co. Ho is very indignant at tho treatment received by the American laborer in that country. "Almost invariably the bright, go-ahead, capable up-to-date la-: borer is an American," said Mr. Ber nard. "And yet they are mistreated and made to stand aside for the incom petent Britisher at every possible op- j portuuity. Americans who have bought property at White Horse and built for themselves homes there, are now not sure that they will be allowed to work." After getting an insight into the con ditions that exist there, Mr.. Bernard comes home with the feeling that the United States is good enough for him, and says emphatically, "God bless the Stars and Stripes." --- . -1 A 1 ?_ A1 1 3 1 wanted.?a partner 10 me uaruware business.
