ALASKAN DOGS HALF WOLF.
Invnliiable to the Inhabitants?Serve

The native Alaska dog is known as
the "huskie" or 'mahunoot' and Is a
mongrel?'one-half timber wolf, says
a writer In Leslie's Weekly. He has
characteristics which especially fit
him for his work?he is heavy set,
with a thick coat of long hair, im
pervious to cold, and with just
enough wolf in his nature to make
him restless, eager to go. and with a
sufficient mixture of dog to temper a
fierceness and treachery which
might, and sometimes does, become
It is a rare occurrence for them
to bite a human being, but they will
fight among themselves on the slight
est provocation, and It is not an un
common sight for half a dozen
"huskies" to hold a pitched battle.
A bucket of cold water will generally
put them to flight, but in the major
ity of cases th" miners pay no atten
tion to the melee and allow the dogs
to fight It out.
The wolf nature manifests Itself
In their thieving propensities, and all
food must be "cached'' out of their
reach. A hungry "huskie" will open
a box of canned beef with ease by
biting through the tin. He will He

One day I saw a miner's dinner
wrecked by his own dog, a splendid
big, wolfish fellow, who overturned
a pot of beans, and in the most un
concerned manner walked off with
the hot bacon In his mouth.
No matter what depredations they
may commit, severe punishment, so
as to cripple or kill them. Is out of
the question on account of their
great value In the transportal ion of

Weather Forecasts So Joke.
A large majority of the residents
of the inland cities look upon the
forecasts of the I'nlted States
Weather Bureau in a spirit of fore
bearanee if not of levity. They ac
cept the Jokes of the paragraphers
about the unreliability of the viredic
tions as practically true and if called
upon to pass a serious opinion on
the bureau would in most cases de
cide that it was primarily designed
to furnish sinecure jobs to army offi
cers for whom no better employment
could be found. At the ocean and
lake ports, however, where millions
of dollars are Invested In shipping, a
different view is held. Instances are
too numerous in which the heeded
warning of the weather observer has
averted the loss or damage of ships
and cargoes of exceedingly large val
ue. Here it Is recognized that the
forecasts are not Invariably correct
and the officials themselves moke no
pretense that they are, but in the
main they strike so near the truth
that the man who has life and
wealth that is subject to menace by
weather conditions cannot and does
not take chances. No shipping in
surance Is so cheap as the free ad
vice furnished by Uncle Sam. Rail
roads, too, appreciate the value of the
weather service especially In the
Northwest during the blizzard sea
son and in the Southwest during the
Spring freshets. At these seasons
transportation officials keep a close
watch on the bulletins of the bureau
and gauge the movements of their
trains accordingly. The losses thuB
avoided frequently are sufficient to
put the balance on the right side of /
Utilizing Pine Stump*.
The denuding of the American
foests Is leading to many odd re
sources to supply the deficiency. The
government recently announced that
owing to the rapid manner In which
forests are being mowed down to
secure wood pulp for paper ma Icing
a small army of experts were at
work, hunting for some abundant
material like swamp or prairie grass
that would be suitable for paper
making. Long ago the supply of wal
nut lumber for furniture was prac
tically exhausted and oak has large
ly taken Its place. For some time the
turpentine makers have been puz
zled to find raw material to meet the
growing demands of their trade
wh'cll threatened to make serious
Inroads on the pine forests. The
trees were being used much faster
than they could be grown and this
meant disaster. Then attention was
tinned to the refuse of the forests
already used and experiments were
made which demonstrated that the
stumps of the pine lives, which had
originally been passed over us not
worth the trouble of digging out.
were saturated with raw turpentine.
These stumps Immediately took on
a commercial value which will fur
nish small fortunes in ihe men who
own them. In some cases the Inter
esting question has been raised as to
whether the slumps were a part of
the original timber right sold h\ the
farmer to Ihe turpentine maker or
reverted to the owner of the land
after the trees had been cut

orders that while he was engaged in

AND SYSTEM DISORDERED
Catarrh is not merely an inflammation of the'tissues of the head and
throat, as the symptoms of ringing' noises in the ears, mucous dropping back
Into the throat, continual hawking and spitting, etc., would seem to indi
cate; it is a blood disease in which the entire circulation and the greater
part of the system are involved. Catarrh is due to the presence of an excess
of nric acid in the blood. The Liver, Kidne3-s and Bowels frequently be
come torpid and dull in their action and instead of carrying off the refusa
nnd waste of the body, leave it to sour and form uric acid in the system.
This is taken up by the blood and through its circulation distributed to all
parts of the 6ystem. These impurities in the blood irritate and inflame
the different membranes and tissues of the body, and the contracting
of a cold will start the secretions and other disgusting and disagreeable
symptoms of Catarrh. As the blood goes to all parts of the body the ca
tarrhal poison affects all parts of the system. The head has a tight, full
feeling, nose continually stopped up, pains above the eyes, slight fever
cornea and goes, the stomach is upset and the entire system disordered and
