J. VIVIAN, JR., &C0.iag& !VIr, Henry Harpinen Returns From Van couver BABY CARRIAGEr Disgusted With The Outlook. ffesaj the lTopcl f llaklDg a Fortune lu Kloudlke Are Very Mlini. Mr. Ileory Ilarpioen who left here aey ral week ago for Vancouver from where be Intended to start for the Klondike cold fields, has returned to this city and is not entirely pleased with the outlook n the gold fields of the new El Dorado. Although he did not get to Alaska and only reached Vancouver, he eaw enough of the gold hunters to satisfy himself that his chances ot setting rich anions: the Tery large number that were going up were very poor. Mr. Harpinen also saysthatthecrowds that go up to Alaska are by no means as large as some of the newspaper accounts tate. De expected to see thousands and thousands of people on the way up, but was surprised to find that the num ber was by no means as large as lepre eented. At Vancouver it costs f -t and f 5 a day for board at any of the hotels and the gold hunters are unmercifully bled by everybody in the town, who are finding their Klondike right at home. . ife says the steamboat lines are by no means rushed and that most of the stor ies o( being unable to purchase tickets for months ahead is untrue and gotten up by the steamship people themselves, who are doing everything possible to keep the price of the tickets away up. He says that if any one applies at the teamboat offices for tickets they are told that they are sold to parties who are to arrive from the east in time to catch the steamboat, but then thesteam boat man will tell the prospective pur chaser that he has a few tickets left by people who intended to go but backed down and old their tickets back. Then be demands G5 for the ticket. If tbe ticket is sold some more ar3 placed in their stead and there is always someone who wants to sell his ticket back again. Ity this clever dodge tbe tickets are kept up to a high price. However, when the duy of tbe boat's failing comes they begin to drop in price and can be purchased for as low as f33 on the day of departure. Mr. Harpinen met Mr. Prosper KDberta of Lake Linden, in Vancouver, and saw him leave on tbe boat for Alaska. He was in excellent health and spirits when be departed aud wished to be remembered to friends on Lake Superior. Mr. Har pinen also saw Mr. Montin who left here wo me time ago for the coast. He was alno in good health. He save the number of people who ex pected to make fortunes out of the gold hunters are almost as numerous as the gold hunters themselves. 'Interested In MlHslonary Work. There was a rally of unusual propor tions in this city Thursday of the ladies connected with a number cf tbe churches interested in missionary work. The meeting took place at the Calumet Con gregational church and was very largely attended. The Calumet ladies had is sraed limitations to the societies connect-' ed with the Calumet M. E.f the Red Jacket Congregational, tbe First Presby terian church and the Lake Linden and South Lake Linden churches to attend and every society turned out in large numbers, the delegations from Lake Lin 'den atd South Lake Linden being much larger than was anticipated, over 125 ' ladies were present as well as some of the pastors of the churches. The meeting was presided over by Mrs. E. S, Grlereon, president of the Calumet society. Tbe speaker of the afternoon va Miss Everett, of Honghton. a lady -who h been In the missionary field tor many years, but who has now given up tbe work. lier address was considered by those present to have been one of the most In teresting and instructive of Its kind that hjiaw been eiven here.

Miss Everett has a good enunciation and held tbe attention of her auditors yery closely for she had the facility ot telling her story so that inter eet In it never lagged.
