Tuesday night when K indie's municipal

Cleveland square. It was tlie fsrst con
cert in three -weeks, last week's concert
being postponed on account of the may

for lost time, as the square was literally
jacked, so much so that even seating
soce on the kwvns was difficult to find.
' From a ntarJi by Bloom to snatches
of a Verdi opera, the program was
p -easing. A Aaltz br Vollstedt was re
peated from a former concert by re-
jest, and its zobo and whistling parts
brought an encore. Strains of Doni

Emerson fell into a deep sleep, and
it was late in the day when he awoke,
every muscle aching, every joint stiff,

breakfasted. Big George none the worse
for his ordeal, while Fraser, bandaged
and smarting, was his old shrewd self
"Have you heard about the mail
boat?" asked Emerson.
"We've missed' her."
"What d'you mean?' demanded Big
George blankly.
"I mean that that storm delayed us
just long enough to ruin us."
"Why er let's wait till the next
trip." offered the fisherman.
Emerson shook his head. "She maj
not be back here for eight weeks. No!
We're done for."
Bait was like a big boy in distress
His face wrinkled as if he were about
to burst into loud lamentations. Then
a thought seized him.
"Where in blazes is this steamer?"
he cried. v
"Out to the westward somewhere."
"Well, she's a mail boat, ain't she?
Then why don't she stop here coming
back? Answer me."
The rotund man shrugged his fat
shoulders. "She's got to call at Uyak
bay going east."
Emerson looked up quickly. "Where
is Uyak bay?"
"Over on Kadiak island."
"When is the boat due at Uyak?"
Emerson asked.
"Most any time inside of a week."
"How far is that from, here?"
"It ain't so far oijy about fifty
miles." Then, catching the light that
flamed into the miner's eyes, Petellin
hastened to observe: "But you can't
get there. It's across the straits Shel

"What of that! We can hire a sail

"I ain't got any sailboat- I lost mj
sloop last year hunting sea otter."
"We can hire a small boat of some
sort, can't we, and get the natives to
put us across? There must be plenty
of boats here."
"Nothing but skin boats, kyaks and
bidarkas, you know. Anyhow, you
couldn't cross at this time of year
it's too stormy. These straits is the
worst piece of water on the coast.
No; you'll have to wait."
Emerson stared hopelessly at the
The disheartened man started at this
iuncture as if a sudden thought im-
pelled him and followed Bait out into
the cold. He turned down the bank Jo
the creek, however, and made a care
ful examination of all the canoes that
went with the village. 'Fifteen min
utes later he had searched out the dis
gruntled fisherman and cried excited

little fat man. "They know what it

"Cail them in. I'll do the talking."
And accordingly the storekeeper went
in search of the village chief, shaking
his head and muttering at the mad

Million Confirmed Drunkards in U. S. One-third of
Them Die Every Year and Ranks Keep Full.
Philadelphia, April 8. One million persons in this country are con
firmed inebriates. Of this number one-third die yearly as a result of drink,
vet this number is annually nade up by recruits of the army of drunkards.
NThis was the substance of a paper read by Dr. DeLancy Carter, of the
Inow York Medical Society for the study of alcohol and. other narcotics.
This problem, he asserted, exceeds in sociological importance anything
known to modern civilization. He tixged institutions for their treatment,
lectures, educational efforts and every legal method of restraint that can
possibly check the influx of new drunkards.
