De Fries. the well-known mining mau, who is the first man in i this country to bring to the uotice of the public the existence of valuable I stones in this region, is now making a search for diamonds and is confident that his 6earch will be rewarded. On one of his recent trips to the states De Fries was told by a famous lapidary that the rubies he had in his possession and which came from De Fries' property on the Feather aud Fairview rivers were of the finest qual- ! ity he had ever seen, not excepting the ^ first quality stones from Arizona. In regard to the possibility of find ing diamonds here, De Fries said that! in the collection of stones he took to the states last winter were a number of zircons, which are well known to signify i the presence of diamonds where they are found. He took several of the zircons to the ; the states, and he believes that there is a chance to find diamonds in the gravel deposits in this country. De Fries is manager of the Gold and Ruby Mining company, aud has a large scope of ground aud a water right between the | Fairview and Feather rivers. He has j beeu at work there all summer, and will soon have his plant fitted up in a man- j ner that will permit steady operation. ; Besides the rubies and zircons found on i the De Fries properties are almandines aud garnets. ?

"What!" gasped Miss Passy. "And are you weariug pussy willows, i Miss Passy?" pursued the angel-faced child. "What!" shrilled Miss Passy. "I thought maybe you were, because Miss Mipp said you were a cat." i _____ I Valdez. ? After endeavoring for more ; than two years to secure a trial on an j indictment against him for forgery, Alfred B. Isles was this week cleared of the charge, and the case was dismissed. Isles, who is prominent in social circles at Washington, D. C., and a well-known miuing man, was charged with cou nivance with one Charle9 Friend in forging a deed to mining property. Two years ago Friend sold Isles a placer claim near Fairbanks, represent ing that his right name was Gas Dick erson, and Friend an alias; that under the name of DIckereon he had located j h valuable claim near Fairbanks, which : he would sell for a small price. Isles ! and Friend went to Seward, where Isles introduced his compauion as Dickerson to a notary, who acknowledged his sig nature to a deed. Soon afterward the matter was presented to the grand jury and on Friend's testimony Isles was indicted. .Later investigation by the district attorney revealed the fact that no such claim had ever been located by Dickerson or by any other person, and the case was dismissed. Friend left here shortly before this term of court under a cloud, and his whereabouts at \ present is unknown, although he has a ! wife and five children in Valdez.

ALASKA HARDWARE STOVES FU RNITjJRE JULIUS JENSEN CORNER 2d AND D STREET DOUGLAS Helpful Household Hints How to make beaten biscuit: Mix one pint of flour and shortening with one pint of dynamite. Place whole in the oven. Then beat it. How to remove strawberry stain from white lawn dress: Take the material containing the stain and stretch it care fully. Then take a pair of sharp shears and cut carefully around the edges of the stain, removing the piece thus cut out. The strawberry stain will uever again appear in the same spot. How to keep a cook: First catch your cook. Tben proceed noiselessly and rapidly to the office of the register of deeds and place your house and lot in your cook's name. Then buy her a six-cylinder Pope-Toledo and a pianola. Pit her up an elaborate boudoir on the first floor of the house. Hire her a manicurist, a butler, several hand maiden and second-hand maidens, also an angora poodle. In this manner you may be able to keep your cook. Of oourse, extreme cases may require greater attention. How to make a silk hat: Take one joint of stovepipe. ^ Then catch seven or eight black cats and skin them and stretch the skins tightly about the stovepipe. Brush carefully. If the hat is too tall use a little shortening. How to cure a bald-headed Brussels carpet: Take a pair of barbers' clippers and clip the carpet all over, then shave it carefully with a safety razor so it will all look alike. It will all then grow out ! evenly. Under the heading, "Saving Kansas," Wait Mason says in the Emporia Ga zette: "They are Bending forty preaoh ers to this bleeding Kansas land; forty sweet annointe'Q teachers who will talit to beat the band. And we're waiting ! their arrival with an inward pain and I smart; waitiug for the big revival that j will break the devil's heart. Once this | Kansas was delightful, and the people loved her well; is her wickedness so frightful that she has a brimstone smell? Is she facing such disasters of a diabolical kind that she needs a bunch of preachers here to talk the people blind? There are preachers here already, men the people know and love; toiling always, true and steady, show ing folks the way above; men who bear the heat and burden, caring for the sick and dead, blazing out a trail to Jordan, for the pilgrim's feet to tread. Why should forty language slingers come to fill the laud with woe, shouting texts the while their lingers reach aroumUto grab the dough? Let the forty windy pastors go to China or Peru, where the devil overmasters all the folks who are in view." "SITKA HOT SPRINGS." Accom modations, Americau or European plan.
