LIFE IN DAWSON CITY.
PLENTY OF EXCITEMENT THERE Stampede to New DUtrlctu -Vice Reign* Everywhere A Horne That Kan Away With 2* Hi.ooo Worth of Gold Dnit. Chicago, Nov. I. Tin* correspondent of lho Record sends the following Inter esting description of life in Dawson City: Stampedes to new creeks or gulches are of semi-daily occurrence. Hardly an evening has passed during the last ten days when there has not lieeu from two to three rushes, or rather stam pedes. off to newly discovered dig gings. Overton men left/a day or two ago for Eureka creek, one of the tribu taries of Indian river, a distance of seventy-live miles, through a pathless tract of wild, mountainous country. To create a rush of this character all that is necessary is for a whisper to be overheard, the exhibition of half an ounce of course gold ami a Hint ns to where it came from. In half an hour from ten to 100 men will be strung out along tin* trail in the direc tion indicated. Some of them are in such haste as not to take along blank ets or food, though the distance is from thirty to fifty miles. A few nights ago some one came in and reported a gold strike on Montana creek, a little stream entering the Yu kon on the east side. The night was miserably dark and stormy and a light snow was falling. "Clieocliacoes,” or tenderfoot, the appellation applied to new arrivals, were wildly excited and flow off toward the creek. Some went in boats and poled up against the strong current, and others crossed over the mountain and two or three gulches. The first arrivals built tires, and with torches measured 500 feet and planted their stakes. Frank Slnvin, the well known pugilist, was the second man to locate a claim. At 12:30 o’clock at night seven claims were staked off, and people continued to arrive by the score, and now upward of -too claims have been located. Every locator was tired, wet, hungry and cold. . At present the mine-owners are bus ily engaged in cutting cord wood aud erecting cabins for the accommodation of workmen this winter. As soon as the heavy frosts freeze the earth to a ins tance of twenty or twenty-live feel holes will l>e sunk and the work of drifting commenced. Reaching lnxlrock, large fires are started to thaw the ice out of the ground. Workmen immedi ately pick and shovel the gravel into buckets and haul it up on the dumps. The drift or tunnel follows the pay streak along on the liedrock. and in most Instances runs off in three or four directions. Naturally the tunnels are dark, and candles are used. 'Hie men work in their shirt sleeves while down in the drifts and do not feel the cold. Tin* man above who stands by the winch and hauls up the gravel has the coldest Job of them all. particularly when the thermometer registers 50 or 00 degrees below zero. East winter only two or three* of the mines c1os«h1 down on account of cold weather, but most of the claims were worked eon . tinuously until warm weather.

HI the abundance of water s.epinpp through the gravel. It is Impossible to drift in the summer. One great disadvantage which the owners are now suffering is the ina bility of the two local sawmills to fur nish enough lumber to make sluice boxes. The demand exceeds the sup ply by fully 40 or 50 per cent., and it may be the menus of preventing several of the dutnits on the largest mines Indng sluiced early next spring. The only inconvenience will lx* tin* de lay, as the iluiii|M can be worked later in tiie season. Around the halls are I tenches and su gar barrels, all occupied by spectators. In the sea of fact's I noticed many re fined countenances, persons who looked as if it was a revelation of an evil world to them. For iniquity and vice no city can hope to make a favorable showing along side of Dawson City, this little com munity which, a year ago. did not con tain a single house and was but a wild erness alongside of tin* ltosom of the Yukon river, and in its brief existence lias shipiM'd out to the world tons of virgin gold. Some fifteen or eighteen saloons aye tilled every night with crowds of men and women. The dance halls are brilliantly lighted, and all night long poor music servos to attract men who have seen better days and to divest them of their gold. To-night at the opera house I saw several men roughly dad in miners' costumes, big. wide-brimmed hats and hlgh-topi>od skin 1 M>ots. with lighted cigars, dancing with girls whose faces are paling fast under the blaze of excitement. One of tlm liveliest and most inter esting horse hunts that ever took place in this nineteenth century occurred re cently. One of the pack trains was en gaged in bringing down l.ooo or 1.500 pounds of gold from the mines. Sacks of nuggets weighing from 150 to 200 pounds were loaded on the backs of eight horses and started down the gulches, which are eight miles distant from Dawson Oity. Darkness came on rather early and one of the animals, carrying iso pounds of the yellow metal, which is equivalent to $40,000. lH'cnme separated and wandered off into the woods to browse. The loss was not noticed until the pack train arrived in town and tin* gold was being weighed. For a few moments, which rapidly grew into hours and tills length ened into a couple of days, consterna tion prevailed. No lime was lost in gel ting over the back trail and making hasty inquiries of the miners along the route as to whether they had seen any tiling of a horse with a pack on Ids back. The hunt lasted all night, tiie next dnv and the night following, and not tin*' slightest trace of the horse could be found. What puzzled the searchers all the more was the fact that tin' los-t animal wore a clear bell. At the end of tin* second day when the Incident was fast assuming one of those unfathomable mysteries that sometimes «weop down on a mining camp, the lest horse came over the top of n mountain and down into town jingling the bell in a lively tone, with tiie sack of gold safely on ids back. 'Hie animal had been browsing in a meadow situated way up In the mountains. “ltlnnclie is dreadfully stingy.” “IIow do you know?" “She was going to pay our ear fare, and I said it was my turn " "Well?” “Allil stie let me pay It.” 1 What organ shall 1 buy?

THE GREAT JOURNALIST HAD A BUSY CAREER. One of the Moat llrtlllant Men Mine* the I>i»ya of Horace Greeley—Whi a Pupil of the Celebrated Owner of tbe New York Tribune. N American writ er several months ago thus pictured the late Charles A. Dana, for 25 years editor of the New York Sun: “Mr. Dana is most ac cessible. When not abroad he spends several hours of every day in tho editorial rooms, and while there can be seen as readily as the youngest report er on tho paper. A card Is sent in to him by an office boy. If he Is at leis uro the visitor is asked In at once to a large room. Here are two desks, one occupied by his son, Paul Dana, and the other by Mr. Dana himself. He sits in front of a large table, and beams upon his visitor through the specta cles that the caricaturists and cartoon artists have made so familiar to Hie American public. Ills manner is most kindly and sympathetic, and all fear of him vanishes at once in his presence. His eyes twinkle with merriment while he is listening, and also when he speaks. And yet lie wastes no time. He knows what ho wants to do. and therefore tfiere Is no hesitation or de lay in reaching a conclusion in any business brought before him. Of course, no man of experience will bother the chief with mere routine bus iness. If anyone makes that mistake with Mr. Dana, he Is not snubbed for his error, but politely referred to the proper assistant. He is very popular with all who do not take offense at the CHARLES A. DANA. caustic way he has of speaking of those he opposes in public life through his paper.” Mr. Dana is an exceedingly learned miiu. He has spent much time in tiavel and is a keen observer. Several languages are ns his native tongue to him. Not long ago he was reported to be amusing himself learning the Dan ish language. At his summer residence he devotes a groat deal of attention to gardening, and his love of flowers is marked. Mr. Dana was born at Hinsdale, New Hampshire, on August 8, 1819, and entered Harvard College twelve years later. In 1842 he became a mem btw of Brook Farm community, in Rox bury, Mass., and remained there until 1844. He edited, in connection with George Ripley, Parke Goodwin and John S. Dwight, the Harbinger, a weekly Journal devoted to social re form and general literature, 1844-47. In 1847 he became connected with the New York Tribune, and was for thirteen years managing editor, until the spring of 18C2. In 1855 he projected Apple ton’s "American Cyclopaedia,” in six teen volumes, and, in conjunction with Mr. George Ripley, was its responsible editor to its completion in 1863, as, also, of the revised edition. 1873-77. The Household Book of Poetry was compiled and published by him in 1858 and revised and enlarged in 1882. From 1862 to 1865 he was in the government service, during the last two years as assistant secretary of war. About the beginning of 1866 he became editor of the Chicago Republican, now the Inter Ocean. In 1868 he went to the New York Sun. And Mr. Dana has made it one of the best written and most interesting papers in North America. The Sun had its "fads,” but those who disliked them found plenty else in the paper of interest and merit. Tit In SewHoii’H Florida Oihiiko Crop. Florida’s orange crop for 1897-98 will soon be going forward to market, and a good many estimates are being made as to what the crop in the state will figure up. Last season It amounted to about 125,000 boxes. That was the first year’s fruit after the freeze, and the crop was accordingly very small, espe cially when It is recollected that the product of the state had been number ed in millions rather than in thousands of boxes. A careful estimate made by a gentleman in the city, who is well informed as to the crop throughout the state, places it In round numbers at about 200,000 boxes. It is believed that these figures are conservative, and that the crop will go above rather than be low the figures named.—Florida Times- Union. Not hii Ka*y Tattle. An enthusiastic church mom her of Philadelphia has just contributed J$1 to flic church on his birthday, pledging himself to double the amount on each anniversary of his birth for the rest of his life. If he keeps his pledge and lives long enough the church will have plenty of money, for the amount of his offering on his birthday twenty-five jears hence will be something over $16,000,000.

Delight* or Which the Modern Child Know* Nothing. I do not believe thut the modern child knows anything about an attic. The fln-de-siecle attic is a respectable place, where boxes are solemnly piled and where iaoth camphor sheds its fragrance abroad, says a writer In Llp pincott’s. There are hardly any old books to be found, for most people send them to the Hebrew merchants on tbe side streets. Our attic was a long, low room, with mysterious dark corners, lino whoso depths we did not penetrate. There was an old hair trunk m one corner that held some of grandmother’s muslin dresses. It was opened only on rare occasions and 1 was allowed hut a glimpse of the fad ed beauty within. There was an ilrt spinning wheel where spiders hung fantastic wreaths and there was a gui tar with Iroken, moldered strings. But the corner w'here the hooks were piled was the spot 1 liked the best. An old fashioned. Uuy-paned window let an occasional sunbeam stray across the "Ladles’ Repositories" and* "Saints’ Rest.” There was a fine old elm tree that tapped against the window and sometimes a robin sent a thrill of song into the dusty corners. Just beneath Ihc window scat I used to sit, a small crouched form, bending over » musty volume But when I wished to read under the most blissful conditions I fortified myself with half a dozen ni“- set apples, wTose Juice would have giv en flavor to a treatise on Hebrew gram mar. Now, 1 never see a russet apple without seeing also the dim old attic and an utterly contented child, and I am sure the market women misunder stand my wistful glance, for they draw closer to their hnskets and look at. me in suspicious fashion. An apple, so some toll us. deprived us of our Eden; but apples were an Important feature of my childish paradise. So let us leave them in Pomona’s care and look at tho intellectual part of the feast. RISKED HIS LIFE. llrroUin of Ki-Hfimtor Tnlior —Now w lliilUplcm Hniikrupt. Those were days of thrilling deeds, daring adventures, splendid heroism and brutal treachery, says Leslie’s Weekly. Once tho free soilers were be leaguered at Lawrence by an over whelming force of marauders from across the river, with battle, murder and sudden death In their eyes. A few miles away a force of United States troops lay encamped, but the Mis sourians had drawn their lines so tight ly that it was us much as a free Boil er’s life was worth to try to reach them. Was there a man In I/awrence brave enough to take the risk? The besiegers rarely threw away a cart ridge; their aim was sure, their fin gers quick on the trigger. Yet, as night fell and the people thought of what the morning might bring, a Vermont boy said he would take bis chances. The swiftest and strongest horse In the plnce was saddled; the l>oy gripped him with Ills knees, swung his whip in his hand, and, commending his old father to his friends if he fell, dashed out Into the dark. Lawrence listened to tho clatter of his horse’s hoofs, to the steady gallop Into which the ani mal’s pace settled down, to the crack of an outpost rifle, followed by a vol ley not aimed at the rider, for they could not see him, but at the sound of his furious rush; and then the firing died out, and Lawrence knew from tho faint reverberation of the distant hoof beats that the during rider had giA through the lines and that the city was saved. The young man’s name was II A. W. Tabor, and he lived to be United States senator from Colorado for a brief term. Many years ago he told me the story in confidence I think I am justified in breaking faith, now that the old man is a bro Ken, houseless bankrupt, w’ho, at this time, sorely needs a friend. A GREAT EDUCATOE. Prof. Ellphalet Nott Potter, Xh D., LL. D., has been selected as pfHfident of the Cosmopolitan university by John Brlsben Walker. Dr. Potter was elected president of Union College In 1871, and chancellor of Union Univer sity, when the scope of the Institution was enlarged In 1873. In 1884 he re signed the presidency, declined a call to the presidency of the proposed Uni versity of California, as well as the of fice of Protestant Episcopal bishop of Nebraska, to which he had been elect- REV.

Birds, including domestic poultry, have long been accepted In popular be lief as reliable weather prophets. A German professor explains this seem ingly mysterious gift on simple scien tific linos. Birds, he says, are the most warm-blooded of all animals, and use up more air than other animals. Not only their lungs, but air-sacks In vari ous parts of their bodies, are extended with air, wherefore a change in at mospheric pressure is soon felt by them.
