C. N. Rcplogle, E. S. Churchill, Joe

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.

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

fect safety. lie took to the timber and
i soon his vigorous bark revealed the

; 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.

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."
