Some time ago the mail from Fair banks brought a Jar}?** poster, printed [ in patriotic color?, announcing the Sec ond Annual Tanana Valley Fair, to be held at Fairbanks, Alaska, on. Sept. ith j and 5tb, und<*r the auspices of the Fair banks Commercial club; an old fash- 1 ioned country fair, at which were ex hibited the products of the Tanana j valley. Ca-h prizes wore offered for the best exhibits of horses, cattle, pigs, ; chickens, vegetables, gram and fl>wers. Special rates prevailed duiing the fair, on the Tanana Valley railroad, ?nd ex hibits were given free : ia:.-po? tation. There were also extensive exhibits of minerals and home made articles. If i such an exhibition cat: be carried through with success in the Tanana I 7alley, it is much more possible in 1 Southeastern Alaska. All that is need ed io auot^auiKitiioii, wither one already iu existence, or one yet to be formed, to push it aioug. If properly arranged it would be an attraction not only to the ; people of Douglas Island, but to thou sands who would come from all parts j of Southeastern Alaska. While this part of Alaska does not say so much about agriculture, it is really astonish- i ing to see the great quantities of vege tables being raised here. One store iu Douglas, having a large trade, is selling Alaska vegetables exclusively. "Hogging Secretary Fisher" is the 1 grave chartre laid at the door of one of Ketchikan's most prominent citizens. By thni we aie to understand that the said citizen monopolized the lime of! the secretary iu Ketchikan while other and I*-* prominent citizens stood back and LoiiUieU their committee badges in silent wrath, and the great honor that might have beeu theirs had they been allowed to buzz the honorable visitor passed them by and was gone forever. Of cour-e, had they really anything to say to Mr. Fisher, a two cent stamp will carry it to him eveu yet.' During the past week several new ad- j 7ertisers have come to tbe News, and i &hat without solicitation. We com ; mend their judgmenf, for it 19 reason j able that those who expect the patron age of tbe people of Douglas Island should say so through tbe columns of their own home paper. Tbe columns of , this paper are open to all advertise ments of a legitimate nature. Mr. Fred VV. Bradley, president of the Alaska Tread well Gold Mining Co.,. left j on the steamship Admiral Sampsou, Sunday evening, for tbe States. He was accompanied by bis wife and chil dren. Mr. Bradley has spent the sum mer at Treadwell, attending to busi ness, while the members of his familj have eujoyed the delights of a perfect Alaskan summer. The Jualin mine at the Comet has aloaed down for the winter. Work will be resumed in the spring with an in creased force of men. The Jualin is owned by ex Gov. Hoggatt and partners and recently contributed to commerce a 84,000 brick. ______ _________ Arthur W. Fox, the Juneau lawyer, who moved to Douglas a few weeks ago, has moved back to the Capital City. Douglas people are rather too peaceably inclined to furnish much bus iness for a lawyer. The Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul 8y. Co. running all steel trains on all steel tracks, and expecting soon to oarry passengers from Seattle to Chi cago io 60 hours, is about to establish an agency in Douglas. Saloon keepers whose licenses date | .torn July 1st assembled before the federal court today to know their fate. All Douglas licenses were granted with mt q.uiJbble.

J He had groaned three times as loud as he could, and she didn't awake. Then the baby, in its crib in another room, sighed softly in its sleep. The woman was on her feet and stand- t ing beside its crib, anxious eyed in an instant. uAnd 1 actually thought,"! said the man, "that she loved me most."
