It is six weeks since he left but Kodiak Island is in his district and 1 suppose his work among the natives is what is delaying him.

Mrs. Henderson nd Mrs. Reasy are sisters It is truly a pity that such a calamity should befall that island for I do think it was considered the garden spot of Alaska. We were undecided between Kodiak and Seward when coming here. It is a small village comprised principally of Russians and natives with a half a dozen men and women, but I wanted to locate there in preference prin cipally because of the beautiful surroundings. You have no idea how pretty it was and the climate is ideal for I suppose that won't be affected, but the beauty, that is buried forever I suppose. The dread of Sahara was never so bleak they tell us. All the vege tation is ruined with several inches of that ash everywhere and the rain-fall iriatted it down hard It will be good for motor ing now I suppose. The cattle must be suffering. I'm afraid, we won't spend much time in picking berries for the volcanic ash which fell here (150 miles lawayj was enough to kill every thing of that sort. A pity isn't |it. Teachers' Examinations.

Fonrtb of inly Picnics. All over the neighborhood In dependence Day picnics had befn planned, and Lemmonites who had made no arrangements for patriotic hilarity at home, had largely planned on going out into the country to help there. Quite a few went to Morristown, where a celebration was had. This was not interfered much by rain, although they had a half hour's downpour at that point. The Old Settlers' Picnic ing, Extracts from.a letter to Mr. T. 0. Ramsland written by his sister, Mrs. Dr. Schlaeben, of Seward, Alaska, on June 24, the week following the great vol canic eruption "We had considerable excite ment last week due to the vol canic eruption at Kodiak, but since the facts have been learned we find it is not as serious as we feared. The steamers are giving excursion rates to sight seers and I was tempted to go but I was afraid I would miss my husband at the other end. the morn but during the afternoon many gathered, among them many from Lemmon. Games and pastimes suffered some on ac count of the poor track condition and because of the general fear caused by that cloud in the west. When finally that cloud "let go," there was a frantic, yet almost jubilant scampering for cover— and there was mighty little cover at that. But it was great sport to see the downpour and know what a lot of good it was doing the crop—and nobody had a grudge against the weatherman. When with the darkness the rain ceased, all festivities had to called off and everybody got home as best they could enjoy ing the joke the weather had played them better than a whole night's fireworks. The picnic association will probably set an other date for their picnic in the near future. Another F. W. LEHMANN. Solicitor General Submits Resignation to President.

About twenty companies and 50,000 1 picnic was held at the Barth crossing northwest of Lem mon by the Cedar. Here nearly 200 people had gathered and made as much of the day as the weather permitted. H. J. Sting er gave them a rousing patriotic address, and the Misses Ellingson delighted all by their finished vocal numbers. The rain here too set everybody scampering for cover, and few there were who did not get more or less drenched employes am affected. The union some time ago asked for a renewal of I he old agreement, with a few minor modifications. The com panies replied the agreement had been unsatisfactory, requiring In many cases the employment of incompetent labor. There was no objection on the part of the employes to the present wape scale. A statement by officials of the Clyde line explains the company's stand as follows: "1'ndar the union agreement we had to take the men the union sent. We carry too many thousands of dollars 1 On Thursday evening of next week, there will be given a dance at the pavilion at the picnic grounds on Plum creek. Every body is invited.

The bathers of Lemmon are just finding out what a boon Lem mon has in the city reservoir During the recent heated spell everybody that could made his way up the four miles north i" the "ole swimmin' hole," -onI\ it's quite respectably sized a laLe some 40 acres in extent and ii joyed a refreshing dip in itseo"| ing waves. Now it is almost a habit for many to go there two or three times each week lecially if they "stand in" with some good sport that has a gaso lene buggy at his disposal. A dip in the fine soft water of the reservoir is a rare treat indeed, and as the reservoir is of swim uiing depth over nearly all its area, some fine exercise is being had in swimming by those who during their stay on the prairie haven't forgotten the trick yet All the men folks who are "attached" more or less to the ladies deplore the fact that the gentle sex cannot as yet join in the fun, and measures are about to be taken to build dressing shacks and a pavilion.
