A Juneau paper again contains the threat that the warehouse being built at the foot of the mouutain directly across the ohannel from the town of Doug. as is to be used for the storage of powder.

Many of the inmates of this home are without the meana to provide themselves with any thing that might be classed as a luxury. Not one is so independent that he would not appreciate a little token of Christmas cheer to show tbat he ie not forgotteu. How it would gladden their hearts to know that the good deeds of their active days were still remember ed, and that their friends could find time at the holiday season to stop and think of them. We doubt much if there could be found a place where a "Christmas Box," would be more ac oeptaUe. With moat of them it is but a few short years that we shall have the opportunity to be kind to them. The Thanksgiving Game In a stemwinder of a football game at Treadwell on Thanksgiving day, the Gastineau team met defeat at the hand* (and feet) of the Treadwell team. It was really defeat, for the Gastineau baying oome down from fourteen gene* rations of oollege athletes and football players expeoted to wipe the earth with the Treadwell bnnoh, but only succeed in tieing the soore. When the time keepers auuouced that the hour was op the Treadwell boys had their op ponent* badly winded and the ball al most at the goal, and the score was 7 to 7. A careful observer handed ns the following, which describes the sit uation exactly: ulf so and so, and such hadn't been so and so, Gastineau would have won the game." Reading the many excuses and apologies, given by the Juneau papers on behalf of the Juneau bunch, beoause they could not carry eff the bacon on Thanksgiving day, reminds one of the old story about the geutle dog and the frightened rabbit.** The Douglas Fire Department re- j sumed its monthly meetings last Sat urday night when a large crowd of Douglas firemen, together with a num ber of representatives of the Treadwell department gathered at A. L. U. ball. Vice-President M. G. Rogers presided in the absence of President O'Connor, who was abseot from the oity in at- : tendance at the bridge party in Juneau, j given in honor of Col.
