OCCURENCES
AT ANCHORAGE
ANCHORAGE, Dec. 8.—From the
dainty first-year tots in their fairy
and butterfly dance to the graceful
colonial “Dance of the Tempest,” by
the high school, the school program
for the benefit of the gymnasium
was splendidly rendered and enjoyed
by the crowd that packed the hall.
Especial mention should be made of
little Winfred McDonald, who, with
her partner, Edward Bush, led the In
tricate figures of the grand march
without an error.
From the viewpoint of the scholars,
who measured their gym equipment
by the crowd of the evening, the af
fair was no less a success. The gross
receipts totaled $313, which, with all
expenses paid leaves $189 to be used
in the purchase of equipment.
Following the program the floor
was clear and with music furnished
by Kemp’s orchestra several hours
of dancing were enjoyed.
W. \V. Woodward, formerly con
nected with the Drumheller dredg
ing works north of Anchorage, has
returned from the states, where he
has been on business for several
months.
W. G. Wilt, chief clerk in the me
chanical department, has returned
from a trip to Spokane, where he ac
companied Mrs. Wilt and Dinty.
Air. Wjilt will remain in Anchorage
indefinitely and later expects to join
bis family in the states.
W. P. Aturphy was in from his
ranch at Matanuska to spend Thanks
giving. Mr. Murphy is very warm in
his enthusiasm and praise of the
splendid farming opportunities of
the Matanuska valley, which he terms
Alaska’s banana belt.
Harvey Bartholf came in from the
Alable mine in the Willow creek dis
trict to meet his daughter, Miss Sara
Alae Devitt. Miss Devitt comes from
Billings, Montana, and will make her
home in Anchorage this winter, prob
ably going to Willow creek in the
spring.
Mrs. John Vachon and three chil
dren, of Tolovana, Alaska, were
guests of Major E. R. McFarland and
daughter while here en route to Bos
ton, MAss., where the children will be
placed in school.
Airs. Vachon was postmaster at Tol
ovana for ten years, and was owner
and proprietor of the road house and
trading post at that place which was
totally destroyed by fire a few weeks
ago. A fire in 1910 resulted in the
loss of three small chidren in the
Vachon family. Her husband, John
Vachon, came to the north during the
Klondike rush and was several years
on the Dawson fire department. He
died in Fairbanks last winter.
iCharles Leroy, old-time citizen of
Pittman, is in Anchorage on business.
A very quiet wedding was solem
nized at the Presbyterian manse Sat
urday evening when Miss Anna Si

friends of the young couple were pres
ent. The bride is well known in An
chorage, having been engaged at Mrs.
Ashton’s. The groom is with the
Alaskan Engineering commission at
Chickaloon. They left for Chickaloon,
where they will make their home.
