THE LOCAL FIELD. Undismayed. He croes to his task with a sour and a smile. He never says "may be" and "after a while," The fellow that's willing to work. Rut he lives in the sunshine that gladdens to day. And he lightens each load by his irood na tures! way The fellow that's willing to work. He isn't afraid of the trusts that expand. He doesn't look forward to woe in the land, The fellow that's willing to work. For he knows that the earth will give food, drink and air.

Last Sunday morning at 5 o'clock, the sav age clang of the fire alarm and the mournful bellow of the big Treadwell whistle called the frightened people from their beds to the stern realization that once again life and property were in danger from fire. .ir*TI ?..Anf;nn fKof I "Wliort) 19 it was tua 4UD3WUU vuuv spraug to tho lip4* of every man, woman and child, and many breathed a sigh of relief when it was found that the. flames were only leaping up the hillside above the hospital among the stumps. But this feeling of relief gave place to one of anxiety when the realization came that the entire line of buildings from the hospital to the 300 mill were in danger. It was then that not only the men and boys, but women and girls, showed their real grit. With buckets, axes and shovels they turned in and fought like demons. The Douglas Hose companies ran their carts down the narrow track, and joined the Treadwell companies. As the fire surged up to the old Bears Nest mill everybody realized that if that caught not only the adjoiniug buildings but the 300 mill would be burned. Exertions were redoubled and the fire was turned at this point. ? At 7 o'clock a second alarm brought reenforcemeuts and after two hours more of hard work the last spark was extinguished and the people returned to their homes. NOTES. The good people of Douglas Island may now unpack their trunks. The Indians took a lively hand in the scrimmage last Sunday morning, and ' did good execution, j The lumber piles at the saw mill ; were pretty badly scattered by the j wind Saturday night. ! Carl Erickson was laid up for a I couple of days as a result of exposure j during the fire Sunday morniug. The high winds played havoc with the telephone and electric light wires, especially in the neighborhood of the ; saw mill. 1 ^ 1 nn/1 in i uuriug i uu reuBui uuiu ouap, ?uu *u ! consequence of the scarcity of water, | a great many people have been forced I to defer their annual bath. Buildings on the Bear's Ne9t prop erty belonging to the Treadwell com 1 pany are being torn down, to prevent i a recurrence of the danger of last week. Douglas City can be proud of her fire boys, and the orderly and quiet manner in which they carried out the commands of their officers last Sun day morning. Water is now selling in Douglas at $1.00 per barrel, for culinary purposes. : The sea pump at the Natatorium is in ; shape to furnish it at a much lower rate in case of fire. City Council. The time of the city council last I Monday evening was taken up by claims against the city and several other matters of equal importance. The ordinance relating to the waste , of water and the matter of fire protec tion was read and referred back to the committee for still further amend ments. Claims were allowed against the gen eral fund as follows: Mr. Warren, watchman S 3 00 F. Burgess, labor 5 00 : Ed. Dilsaver, watchman 30 00 J. Campbell, watchman 3 00 M. Hanson, watchman 3 00 1 J.

Chalice, watchman 33 00 The city clerk was instructed to issue a notice of the annual city election, on Monday, March 21st. Patrick Lynch, William Steele and Hugh Tracy were appointed judges and Wm. McCormick and Walter Gould, clerks. It was brought to the attention of the council that ths Bear's Nest mill is unrepaired and liable to fall upon the passersby, besides being a fire trap, en dangering adjoining property. A reso lution was passed condemning the buildiDg and instructing the city clerk to notify the owners to tear it down. A Call for Bids* Bids for the construction of the new Treadwell Y. M. C. A. building are now called for. Plans and specifications may be seen at the Treadwell Office. All bids to be in not later than 6 o'clock Saturday, March 5th. Gits. Duriog the recent fire at Tread well it ; was baldly to be expected that such an insiguificant creature as a cat would , receive special attention and be the ob ject of special care and solicitude on , the part of any one. But now after the coufusion has thoroughly subsided, it , develops that pussy played quite a prominent part. ^ * - -I? ?

M. C.

Still another lived in a house that was deserted by the other occupants. Pussy stayed right there, and when her master and mistress returned, pussy was raging mad. In evidence of her temper, her fur all stood on end. A Douglas lady was out iu the wind , when a stray cat took a fancy to hor ? and followed her home. She is now i making a study of how to got rid of that cat. Notice of Municipal Election.
