A bill which would effect this and

reindeer Is now before the territorial
legislature here.
It Is the coming of white children
to this far wilderness?the conversion
of the sourdough into a family manthat
Is responsible for this changed
attitude toward the shaggy trail runner.
Wit'tin the past few years many
chlldrin have been scarred and maimed,
and a number killed, out In the
Nushagak country, by savage husky
and malamute.
The result has been the development
of a furious hatred by white fathers
and mothers toward the roving
packs of half tamed dogs ranging the
western villages.
As long as the men of this lonely
district lived and worked and battled ,
alone/with the brutes that were mild :

next, this dog-savagery was stolidly;;
accepted. ;1
The unattached sourdough could j
cope with his feam, though he too,;;
was often slashed and mauled.

and .either the wolf dog must go or i
the children be subjected to constant

And the natives, though they treat j

Egyptian Wheat
. Egypt In the most ancient times was
celebrated for Its wheat. The best ,
quality was all bearded. The wheat
was put Into the ground In winter and
some time after the barley. In the
Egyptian plagues of hall the barley
suffered, but the wheat had not appeared,
and so escaped Injury.
