Miss Irene McDouiild is about to embark iu a business ventue to be ! kuowu as the McDonald Novelty House. The building next to the Hunter hotel, ou D street has been reuted for the purpose. The wind iSuuday unshingled a nuui- j ber of roofs, includiug the Natatorium, j collapsed the little lish house at the wharf,' sunk the launch Mabel and tore the Geut loose from her mooiiugs and drove her up ou the beach. Iu spite of the cold winds that howled the ladies of the Catholic church made quite a success of the bazaar given at Natatorium hall Mon day and Tuesday nights. Many people j weie disappointed, however, at not beiug able to attend. It is thought that the receipts for the two uights will reach $1,300. Delegate James VVickersham ad dressed the people of Juneau ou the issues of the day Mouday night. A meeting was to have beeu held at the Natatorium tonight, but we understand that Mr. VVickersham will be a passen- j ger for the South ou the Cottage this afternoou. Douglas people are sorry to be slighted iu this way, but suppose it was unavoidable. Alex Tassel, a Douglas fisherman, came to town the other day with what appears to be a quantity of ambergris.! lie took a sample of it to Druggist Elmer Smith, who has had some previ ous acquaintance with the substance, aud he gave it as his opluion that it was ambergris, although he did not, claim to be an expert on the subject* : When asked what ambergris is, Mr. Smith said that it is a substance found floating on the water and sometimes cast up on the beach, more often in the southern sea3 than elsewhere, and is believed to be produced from the intes tines of the spermaceti ?vhale, or, per haps, other fish. Its color is usually gray, brown or yellow, with white streaks. It is often brown or blackish ' on the .surface. The substauce is opaque, lighter than water, iu which it is unsoluble, has an aromatic odor, is tasteless, also inflammable and melts i under 212 degrees P. While it is used : in medicine, its principal value is in perfumery. When pure it commands a high price. i Fresh cream at 7'uruer's. The good steamer Northland, Simon B: ui.n, master, and L. M. Thayer, pur ser, landed at the "city dock" yester day morning .with about 90 tons of Ladysmith coal and other freight for the people of Douglas. Ladysmith coal is the best coal to be had 011 the , Pacific coast and the 90 tons will he I apportioned out to the people of Doug las in small lots only. The Northland ; will be back in about fifteen days with another shipment. This temporary re lief of the coal shortage iu Douglas comes just in the nick of time for many of the coal bins have been empty of late. TREADWELL TOPICS j A very enjoyable dance was given at the Club on Friday night by the master mechanic's department. A large crowd turned out to help the boys celebrate their second annual ball, and every person weut home satisfied that they had a nood time. The music was good, the floor was in excellent shape, the punch was delicious aud the crowd was good natured, aud not too big, which made dancing just right. It is to be hoped" t hat some of the other depart ments will fall in line aud give a dance after the first of the year. Day after day, numbers of small i boats are to be seen on the channel op posite the. Mexican dragging for the. bodies of the two men, Rudy and How ard, who were drowned while crossing from Sheep creek. So far they have uot met with any success. Mrs. A. I']. Christoe er.tertaiued the ladies of the Guild of St. Luke's church and a number of her frieuds at her! home on Friday, Dec. 3rd, when a great deal of sewing was dune for the bazaar to be held at Easter. The next meeting of the guild will be at the home of Mrs. , Fred lleuson at Tread well on Dec. 30th. | Colin M. Blaiu, of the foundry force, ha- been laid up for the pa.-t five days \ with a severe cold. The machinery for the new electiical plant is being installed very speedily and will soou be in running order. A traveller cowing up Uastiueau channel these daik nights must wonder : what uew town has started np on the east side of the channel. Looking from Douglas over to Sheep creek oue sees dozens of electric lights shining, and it seems that there are more electric! lights on this channel thau any other 1 place in Alaska. * The Ladies' Auxiliary of tbe A.-l.-P. exposition held a meeting at the home ! ol Mrs. J. F. Tompkins at Tread well, ! Thursday, Dec. 2nd for the purpose ol windiug up the affairs of the Douglas l>iand exhibitors and returning the ex hibits to the different owners. The very high wind in Tread well the other night blew in two windows in the ; home of Wm. Mackie at Treadwell Heights. The public at Treadwell is very much pleased with the new arrangements I made by Postmaster Webster in keep' j iug the postoffice opeu till 8 o'clock j every night during December, and hopes he may coutiuue to do so all the time, as men working down the lower end of the liue not being able to get their mail at noou have to send other, parties after it, as the office is closed wheu they get supper over, aud if a postoffice order is needed they have to come all the way to Douglas to get it. The office is in charge or Miss Edna i Carpenter and Miss Elna Olson, with Postmaster Dan Webster at the helm. All Boys Dr. H. C.
