NOWELL, Mgr. n Good Road Work Travelers coming into Valdez over the government road since the recent work upon it say it is almost a boule vard. Any kind of vehicle can run over it at any old gait without jarring its occupants. That is the kind of road it is all the way to the summit of Thomp son Pass. Crews are now working on the other side and before the summer ends they will leave a track hard to beat in the country road line. Only a few years ago pack horses carried all the summer freight to the interior from Valdez. The wagon road through Keystone canyon and the new line up to Thompson Pass, cutting out grades impassable by wheeled vehicles were made only four years ago. Each year siuce then has witnessed great improvement in the road until now travel over it is as ?asy in summer as in winter. The Fairbanks road is one of the not able resources of Valdez, and the gov ernment and the road commission, especially Col. Richardson, are entitled to more thanks from the town than they get out loud. ? Valdez Miner. Antone Eide, wbo has been in charge of the Alaska road commission work in the Knik district, ha* returned to Sew ard and reports that the work of build ing roads and trails in that section is going along well, and that by fall there will be no trouble in landing supplies at any of the properties. In slashing the new trail through the foothills Mr, Bide discovered a group of natural sul phur springs that 9eem to contain other medicinal ingredients beside sul phur. The waterJs hot and comes bub bling through the ground in a number of placet}, but all apparantly from one source. In the party were several new men who had sore feet, due to the hard walking. After bathing their feet sev eral times in the sulphur water the soreness left them, and they were so enthusiastic over the results that they started to doctor one of the pack horses that had been pack rubbed. The sores ou the animal responded to the treatment and in several applications entirely disappeared. Owing to the United States land laws, it is impos sible to stake these springs, but a search revealed t rncesjof former occupa tion in the form ct a tumbled-down log baraberri of possible Russian or native construction, showing that years ago the i esidents of that, section knew of the healing properties of the waters and availed themselves of theii use. The senate committee on appropria tions has added to the sundry civil bill 3100,000 for the investigation of a meth od to prevent the enormous waste of miuerals aud to devise plans for treat ing low grade ores. According to the officers of the American Mining Cou gress, metal mining in the West has been on the decline for several years, fewer men beiug employed than ten years ago. It is hoped that with gov erumeut aid the mining industries of the \^es? may be rejuvenated. The tot h 1 number of men employed in the coal mines of the Uuited States in 1911 was 722,322, of which 172,585 worked iu the anthracite mines of Pennsylvania. The average number of days worked in the anthracite mines was 246 and in the other mines 211. The average production per man was 3)4 toD8 ft day in the bituminous aud lignite miues and 2.13 tons a day iu the anthracite. The time lost by strikes in 1911 was insiguifleaut. ? Miuiug Science.

There is a suspicion that success consists of either 1 fame or richps, but. there are really a j great many kinds of sucoess. It de* pends on wlmt u ami) aims at. Some men spell success as fullowa; U6ucce$$." They are successful as soon as the fed* eral grand jury indicts them for trying t to run the earth. Other men have an ambition to die outside of the poorhouse. If they do this by a margin of 27 cents and two shirts they are successful men. Some meu are not successful until : the whole world talks about them. S Others are successful until people talk l about them, after which they have to j throw away a perfectly good name?nd become somebody else, elsewfaene. A statesman is successful if the next j generation remembers him. A politic i ian is successful if t/he governor-elect" | remembers him. A novelist in successful wnen every body Jreads him. A poet is successful when nobody understands him. Au artist is successful when people buy his pictures. So ia a matinee actor* A humorist ia successful when every body laughs at him. But an inventor ; isn't successful until everyone is sorry they laughed at him. A farmer is successful when he cafc raise enough corn to buy au automo bile. An automobile dealer is succesp ful when he can sell enough automo biles to buy a farm. Au aviator is sucessful when he suc ceeds in staying up in the air. That is , the difference between an aviator and ; a baseball pitcher. Some people are successful early in life, like Joseph Hofman, who was a ! famous pianist at 9, or Pitt, who was ' prime minister at 25. Others do not ! succeed until several hundred years after they are dead. It took Homer 500 ; years to make good, and Foe, who starved to death, is now one of our mobt successful writers. Success is sweet, but it is also intox ' icating and goes to the head faster than Tom and Jerry. The cautious man who is about to be successful will iucase his head iu barrel hoops and defy it to do itb worst. I | Seward.? A party from the armored cruiser Maryland, which arrived here recently, left today for the Matanu&ka i coal fields, from which it is proposed to obtain coal for the navy coaling sta tion that is to be established here. Those iu the party are Executive Of ficer C. J. Lang, Chief Engineer E. J. I Shapley, Paymaster E. C. Tobey and Ensign F. C. Sherman. A. J. Jaffa ac companied the navy men ?s a repre sentative of the laud office. A report will be made to the secretary of the ! uavy on the feasibility of obtaining coal for the Pacific fleet from the Mat anuska field. The Maryland will pro ceed to Port Wells, Cordova and Ka talla. Capt. E. M. Trott, general inspector ! of the lighthouse districts of the United Slates, is on a tour of inspection of this district, and in addition will probably go over the matter of a new tender to replace t he wrecked Arwerta with the light hou?>e officials. Captain Trott has a tremendously big territory to cover making the rounds about ouce in 14 ! months. i Serial No. 01528.
