Widrig of Weal Hickory, written from Alaska by bia aon, wbo la one of Uncle Sam' troop stationed there at pres'nl t Unalaklik, Alaska, Oct. -'-), 1901. Dear Father; I will now endeavor to write you few line again to let you know that I am atiil alive and well and bope that you are all tbe aatne. I am still atnhe same place I waa when I wrote laat and expect to stay here until next summer, but it is bard to tell one day where one will be tbe next. It is all frozen up here again : the last boat least. Michael on the 17th of Oo- touer, o now mat leaves us cut on from tbe rest of the world again for a period of uineorten months during which time the mail will bavo to go over tbe over land route to Skagway, Alaska, tbe same aa It did last winter. It will undoubtedly be a long time before you will get this letter, probably tbe latter partof January. Tbe river Is frozen over solid wbicb makes nice skating aud which we im prove nearly every day. W e alao cut holes through tbe ice and fish for Tom Cod. They make very nice eating. Day before yesterday I went down aud got hundred aud twenty-eight in a little over an hour. I haven't beard from you or any body else in long time, but I will keep ou writing ouce a wonth any way, and you will get them some time or other. We bave got a dog team here now to be uaed for patrolling tbe line which makes it much easier, aa now we can get on and rjde where we used to bave to walk and carry our gru.) aud blanket to aleep in, and take three daya to make the trip In, and now we can make it in a day and a half, a trip of twenty milea and back, tbat is tbe distance each aide of tbe station we bave to go. I tell you I have a great time with the dog team when I have them bitched up keeping them from fighting. They are native dogs and it ia impossible to keep them from fightiug while thev are bitched up and w- rklng. Every time tbey get to fighting they get Ibe harness all tangled up. Some times we have to unharness tbem all to get them straight ened out. One day not long ago tbey ran away from me and it took me nearly an hour to get them atralgbtened out a Uer 1 caught them. There is about three iDches ol snow here and over a foot fifty miles north of here. Tbe dog teams and rein- deeraare begining to make their ap pearance again and Ihinusare beginning to look aa though It would be quite liv ly this winter. There are several gold uiinea about sixty miles northeast of here, and a coal mine down the line about twelve miles south of here, so you see wa are all aurrounded by people and mines, and winter time ia when they do the most of their work. It ge:s dark now about four p. ui. aud in a littl while It will be dark at three. We don' get up unui alter nine o clock, so we can't tell what time it does get daylight, ut some wbere about seven o'clock think. well, 1 have ton mnntba to serve yet and then I will be through patrolling telegraph lines, althnngb I had rather be doing that than be back in St. Michael with the company, as from what I hear tbey are having a rather tough time in there as there is so much crooked work going on that tho private soldier fares rather slim. People wbo go through the country here with dog teams carrying mail and freight and stuff are called "inushers." I think If I follow our team all winter I will be a typical "mustier' myself. "Mush" is wbat you yell at the dogs when you want to start. It is an Indian word. Most everybody here wears, in place of au overcoat, wbat is known aa a Parky, an Indian word. Some are made of furand others are made of heavy cloth. I have one made of cloth Tbe nearest thing I could compare tbem to would be a shirt with a hood on it. There are no buttons on them and they hang loose around the lyidy, with the ho d on the head or down the back, ac cording to tbe weather. They are only used to break the wind and are nice and light to '-mush" in. v riling paper and stamps are both g. t- ting rather scarce up here, I don't know wbat I will do before spring, I guess I'll have to atop writing it I can't get acbance to send to St. M icb-el to get some. I can get along without the paper for I tan use the kind I'm using now, but tbe stamps I will have to bave. If I were In your place I wouldn't write after tbe first of next May, aa a letter written after that date would not get here until after I would leave hero for the States. Well, aa it is most twelve o'clock I will bring my letter to an end. Wltb my best regarda to all and hoping to bear from you soon. I remain yourafTectionato aon, SAlfFoRii B. Widbio Co.

Saturday, January 4th, was the 87th anniversary of the striking of tbe United States well, on the Holmdale Farm, Pit bole, which started an excitement iu oil clruilee, which baa never been equaled aiuce. People from all parta of tbe country crowded to the scene. Fabulous prices were paid for land; companies were organized owning land, on paper, In the immediate vicinity of tho strike, and millions of dollar's worth of stock was sold to eastern capitalists. A city grew up iu a breath, whose poatofflce at one time was second or third in the State. A boom waa lauDched; big business blocks were (milt and tbe municipality was the niecca of oil men. Its life was of short duration as were tbe wells, of which many good ones were drilled, and Inside of two years Pithoie ' waa a hack manlier. Some or the hotels were later moved to Oil City, Rouseville and Pleaa- autville. Where there waa once a city, there is now scarcely a bouse standing and, a few yeara ago, it was stated that here wa-. only one voter left in its pre cincts. A plank road was built from here tl ere, which cost a big sum of money. It paid for itself in lesa than year. Ti tusville Courier. L. J. HOPKINS. Fir Toasts. INVOICE all over and now for .
