With Many flunks
There nrAViome people in all com
munities who realize that Newspaper
men have feme attributes which cause
them to resemble other member?; of
their kind. They were created with
stomachs and alwavs carrv an appe
tite with them whether it is heredita
ry or acquired.
Another Venture which prevails
among the fraternity is a strong de
sire to keep the stomach full and the
appetite satisfied.
Last week Mrs. Geo\ W. Gnbvlel
sent to this office a generous plate of
all the dainty edibles which were
served at her party,
Mr. Georjpi Jnmme and Mrs. Gab
riel also remembered the editor’s
family with fine strings of trout fresh
from the lakes of tilth vicinity, which
are nlive with these 'toothsome beau
ties.
Gone, but Retifrns Soon
iVames Gills, a prospector find ex
pfiVier, met with a kilnpi on the Sliu
sitna river, losing his summ&r’s grub,
blankets and tools. As aboV>t all the
funds he had with him were invested
in lus outfit, he returned tic Seward
and left on the Excelsior for Seattle,
where his financial condition will be
i restored. As soon as possible he will
: return to Seward and ngaiu outfit for
h long stay in the interior.
Mr. Bills saw enough tff the latent
resources the country to warrant him
in camping on the trail and picking
up a few of the plums that will lie
marketable when the Vteel bands
bind the grea? interWi' country to'
Seward and tfi’e outside world are
laid and the*Vurtive denizens of the
forest are Awakened by the shriek
of the locomotive.
Caught TwA Sharks.
E. Ulrickson', a local fisherman, yes
terday brouyjit in two mud sharks with
his catch of -the night before. These;
huge monsters of ther deep attracted*
quite a bit of attention.
It wax estimated that one weighed;
400 and the other 500 pounds, and in
length they would Censure 10 and 11
feet. . .’I'
The liver is usecl#on account of the oil
it produces, and after it is extracted the
carcass is. consigned to its native ele
ment.
Imyf-ovemcnts Going On.
It is realty surprising the many new
improvements that have been begun in
Seward during the past weefr.
In fact there is so much |$>ing on in
all parts of the town that the reporter'
decided, on account of a lack of time
to make speeiul mention of each in the
next issue.
There does not appear to be any lack
of faith in Seward’s future even among
the most knock—ious element. They
have concluded that the town is going
ahead despite the fact that they were:
at times troubled with bllllousness and
evrfytliing look gloomy to them.
It is better to be with the band
wago'h than to drag uldftg with the tail
end of the procession,
Tlie recent visit of a number of cap
italists who are behind tile Alaska
Central Railway enterprise, and the
confident feeling that is in the air re
garding tlie completion of that artery
of commerce 135 miles next vVfar, has,
perhaps inspired the pedple oV energy
to be up and doing. TlieVe is not an
idle man in the community* and Seward
does not Tiabor bums.
