PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY Save The Nest Egg The Dexter, Has., Dispatch says: "Under our present economic system thousands of young men in the United States dare not. marry, fearing starva tion owiug to the wages received." The Americus, Kas., Greetiug says wages have become so high in Kansas thut most farmers are buying more improv ed machiuery and are doing their work themselves instead of trying to hire hauds by the month, where a few years ! ago every farmer that amounted to j much had a hired hand. The same f keek the Missouri Trades Uuio'jist said: "A savings account is a most helpful asset, and one thnt can be re- ; lied upou in time of need. It begets ecouomy and brings to the possessor eourage to face and confidence in the future. The amount is not so impor tant as is the fact that you are enrolled amoug the army of thrifty people who have a thought of making provision for a rainy day." The man who inspires people to save something out of every dollar earned will do more for the prosperity of the couutry thau the man who can raise the wages. A writer in the Kansas City Star struck the key note when he said many people started out eating porterhouse steak aud wound up on "chuck." He said it was better to eat "chuck" when youug, wheu the appetite is koen and teeth are good, then you will get your porter house when old. E. VV. Howe says: "There are too many people in the world who use their nest eggs to made cake' of.*' The day laborer probably never will get the wages ho should re ceive, but the high wages without the practice of saving and judicious invest ment, would never alleviate the woes of poverty when the "rainy day" comes. In Memoriam Whereas, it has pleased the Su preme Ruler of the universe to cut down in the prime of life and remove from our midst Brother Carl Johnson, who passed from among us on the 26th day of April, 1908. Whereas, Brother Johnson by his life and conduct proved himself a true Odd Fellow; always ready to respond to the cry of distress; a good citizen; a man true and just in all his dealings; whose memory will always be cherished with feelings of love and tenderness by the members of this lodge; therefore be it , Resolved, that in the death of Brother Johnson we sincerely regret and mourn the loss of oar brother and be it further Resolved, that we extend to the sorrowing widow of our departed brother our heartfelt sympathy in her sad hour of bereavemeut and commend fier to the Diviue consolation of God whom we, as Odd Fellows, believe and trust. Resolved, that these expressions of our sympathy be sent to the widow of our deceased brother that our charter be draped for thirty days; that they be entered iu the minutes of the lodge end a copy sent to the Douglas Island News for publication.

Delegate Cale has said he will not be ; the condidate of either political party, , which means that he will bo a candi date on the independent or labor ticket. ( Major Clum announces himself as an independent candidate. That's two ' is'utit? Then with active candidates from both the political parties to divide up the ballots the next cam paign bids fair to be a lively and inter esting one. ? Skagway Alaskau. .

Treadweli Fire Department By Committee i Never Heard of Jake's Beer For once the agent met his match: i UA book a^ent at Auburn, says au Indiaua paper, called at one of the mauy saloon*. The proprietor's wife, a big German frou, came out with bare arms akimbo to meet him. "Good morning, madam," he began, "I would like to call your attention to this Shakespeare." "Jake's beer? Vot kind of beer is dot? 1 never heard of dot brewery before." "Madam, this is Shakespearo." "I have heard ofSchlitz beer and Budweiser, and oders, but 1 never heard yet of dot's Jake's beer. Vot is dot?" "You are laboring under a mistake my dear woman, this is a book." "Yah, dot is all light, but I have bock beer, too." Imitation Gold Made From Copper. Manufactured gold i3 metallurgy's latest feat. It is composed of 073 parts of copper, 2 parts of gold, and 20 parts of aluminum. The first step in its production is the melting of the copper aud the gold in a melting pot of lire clay or some other fire propf material The mixture is kept in a molten con dition about half an hour, after which 50 parts of borax are added as flux. The mass theu cau be poured out into bars. This allo^ can be wrought into plate or wire, thus allowing of tbo manufacture of manifold varities of ornaments and trinkets. The tint can . I be altered to suit by changing the pro- 1 portion of the three metals. To pro duce red, less gold and le98 aluminum j are needed. For yellow, a little less gold; for green, less gold and more alu miuum. The new gold is extremely ductile, malleable and, when polished, ; brilliant. It therefore not only re sembles gold in appearance, but has the enduring qualities of gold. It is not a gold plated article, but a solid imita ! tion, which requires no plating. There is no danger that it will lose its attrac tiveness by having the thin coat wear off, but its composition must be good or it ia of no value, whatever. The mixture of copper, gold and alumiunm is cheap, and therefore enables the making of ornaments and jewelry at m uch lower prices than double-plated ' articles. Although there is at least a | small quantity of genuine gold in this composition, there are alloys made en tirely of base metals. There is one : consisting of 100 parts of zinc and 8 to ? 15 parts of sulphur strontium, to which as much copper is added as is needed : to produce the desired tinge. Skagway is to have a new wireless station and the antennae is to swing : from the top of the cupola over a beer saloon. There is no reason to doubt ' the attraction. School Notes The storm windows have been taken off the High school room and the blinds have been put up. Who said "sum mer isn't coming?"
