The date and the exact character of the entertainment have not yet j been determined. A Juneau youth was calling on his best girl Sunday night. The lamp was turned low and they had the room to I themselves. They were holding hands, j He is a bashful youth, but the girl; loves him and is determined to get him. So, while they sat in the dim light, side by side, hand in hand, she paved the way for a bold proposal by exclaiming 44 'Sleap Year!''

The good hostess invited all the guests to a richly set table where they enjoyed a well prepared dinner, which gave the hostess the credit of being a good cook. The gathering was pleasant and delightful. Some of the friends stayed until late in the evening. Residence Burned, Last Thursday afternoon the fire j bell brought the boys of tho Depart I ment and a few hundred others out on ! a run, in time to witness tho burning of a two-story residence, on Second J street, belonging to VV. A. Mackie, | proprietor of tho Owl Restaurant. Tho wind was blowing a perfect gale right across the channel and when the com panies reached the building it was al ready a mass of flames. The sparks were carried to tho adjoining buildings by the wind and it looked for a time as if it would be impossible to save atiy of them. It took some time to lay a line of hose from the Natatorium as it re-! quired 2050 feet to cover the distance,! and then many were very doubtful of the ability of the pump to raise the water to that point. But it did it and with a sufficient force to put a stream on the roof of the house occupied by Mr. Ed. Armstrong. This house was saved by hard work, it being on fire in several places. Mr. Armstrong's fur niture, including a fine piano, was moved out by willing hands, but in the hurry several articles were badly dam aged. The home of Chas. Uhamoeriain, al though right in the line of the fire, escaped without damage. Mr. Wm. Kelly and family were part ly moved out before it became certain that their home was not in real danger. As stated above, the residence of Mr. Mackie was a complete loss, including the furnishings. The fire originated in a stump which stood near, and which probably caught from sparks from the cabins on the beach. Every building in the liue of the firo had to bo watched carefully, and stumps over a half mile away caught firo from the sparks. The fire fighting among the stumps continued, with slight intermissions until nearly midnight and the fighters , ouly rested when it was all out. The people of Douglas should re- j member the danger of stump fires, and, when the summer comes every lot in the city should be cleared of these homely pests. The Election. The city of Douglas is on the eve of the third annual election for the selec tion of city otlicers. A caucus has been held and candidates for the various po- j sitions selected. It is now up to the ! voters to make the choice, and with ; them rests the responsibility. Many matters of grave importance ^ have presented themselves for the con sideration of the council that will be j elected next Monday; matters that will require careful thought and considera tion. The personnel of the school j board is not less important. Doth in ' the affairs of the city and the school it is necessary that the most rigid econ ' omy be maintained and the members ! of both bodies should be chosen with : fnof-nm rvf flip till CJ'B I.U lUUl ibuvutu >i.w case. Of course it is necessary to main- i tain the schools?and good schools? which carries with it the idea of good instructors, and they should be paid good and sufficient salaries, proportion- j ate to the wage received by the work ing man, but not more. One of the reasons for the economic- j al administration of this branch of the city's business is the necessity of fur ther improvements to the school build- j i ing. Our school house stands today, a j monumont to the progress and enter prise of the town?one of which our people may well be proud, but it needs j paint badly. As for the candidates whose names have been presented, they are all too well known to need any special intro- j ! duction. A Letter. Pomona, Cal., Feb. 27,1904. !
