NATIVE IM NS .\CfiOSS 17 llEAUs rHKl>lN<i ON A !>EA !> W Al/RtS Wainwright, half ■*..>• befween Nome and Poin Harrow, t ii learned that a lot of Polar It ars are in that vici nity this winter A. native going down the coast ran across 17 bea^s feeding on the carcass of a walrus The native shot eight of the bears aud theu beat it as his cartridges played out. He intended to come back the uext. day and skin the bears jand haul away the meat, but during the remaining hours the bear 3 which were not shot had eaten up the dead ones wh.-n he returned. Another native coming down from Barrow shot six bears in one bunch and got the pelts and meat of all of them. They seem to go in bunch as this year aud nre very hungry. The stomach's of the bears seem to be entirely emipity. therefore the native deem j ad it wise not to go out hunting due to the fact that he weighs 250 pounds and would make good | pickings for the bears if they g >t • him We have had a fine winter j here and look for an early sprint. | KS IN WHITK PARKAS TAKEN FOR SWANS Captain Shriner. the genial hoar of the Cape Nome roadhouse, according to a report thought he saw a couple of swang n^ar Cape Nome thia past week. He got out his gun and was ready for them. When they came nearer and in ■shooting distance, he saw they were (two m ushers. His binooular* showed they wore bran splinters of new white parkas. He thought ■then they were agents for the Ku Klux Klan. When they came up to the roadhouse, they were found to'-be Miss Elesa Simraonson and Mrs. W. F. Baldwin, who had broken the trail all the way from Nome. 14 miles distant. It was plainly visible that “Shanks Mare” was pretty tired and hungry, and what they did to the repast placed before them, would be telling. The trail is now reported to be in fine shape for the race, and it is to be hoped that the Kennel Club w'ill run one of their short races to Cape Nome roadhouse during the winter, as every convenience awaits the musher at this mosl hospitable resort. pmirtv nm satiwm I A M Vkalt M a ttad Hfefav Place P*r Tear SaetngH Having Them Tucked Away dm ¥•* Pockets A r»alr.
