Our crosses are hewn from different trees,
But we all must have our Calvaries;
We may climb the height from n different
But we each go up to be crucified;

The dreadful load that our shoulders bear,
But the costliest sorrow is all our own?
For on the summit we bleed alone.

The hall was decorated with palms,
flags, &c., for the occasion. A banquet
table, extending diagonally across the
hall, was spread with refreshments for
the inner man. However, the best of
the evening was the stories, speeches,
songs, &c., that formed an impromptu
part of the program. It would be im
possible to tell all that was said and
done, but before the party broke up,
daylight was stealing in at the windows.
Those present were Supt. Joseph Mac
Donald, Assistant Supt. R. A. Kinzie,
Mayor Tubbs, R. J. Willis, James Chris
toe, E. J. N. Ott, A. Thorn, Thomas

A story is going the rounds about a

Last Sunday evening the Pacific
Coast S. S. Topeka crashed into the cor
ner of the Douglas wharf and took
nearly half of it with her. The Juneau
Ferry &. Navigation Company have
been making every effort for some time
to get a pile driver to begin the work
of enlarging and repairing this wharf.
This accident makes haste doubly nec

forms us that he has secured a pile
driver at Skaeway and will have it down
here via the Al-Ki, when work will be
gin immediately and be pushed as rap
idly as possible.
Last Friday evening the home of Mr.
J. M. Davis was discovered to be on
fire. An alarm was sounded and the
hose companies responded with alac
rity. It took over 1000 feet of hose to
reach the fire from the nearest hydrant.
The water was turned on and the
flames, although they had gained con
siderable headway, were subdued; not,
however, before the contents of the
house had been pretty badly charred.
The loss to Mr. Davis will amount to
several hundred dollars worth of fur
niture, clothing and pictures. The fire
probably originated from a defective
stove pipe. The fire boys did their
duty with a vim that called forth many
words of praise.

The friends of Rev. and Mrs. Jb\ C.
Krause and Mr. and Mrs. Walter Gould
will give a farewell party in^their honor
at the parlors of the Congregational
church, on Thursday evening, May 28th.

p. m. W. C. Boyd, Patrick Lynch and
M. B. Archer have been selected as
