If not you cannot imagine the pleasure of their acquaintance. They will promise anything on earth and forget that they ever promised anything. They can fix the typses to make you say all kinds of things of which you never dreamed. They made me spell the same word four differ ent ways in the same issue. When I called attention to it one typo remarked: “Any fool can spell a word one way,but it takes a smart man to spell a word four ways.” And he is right. —The Common Herd. MARCH!

Three hundred and fifty prospectors, the first party of stampeders to reach the new Iditarod gold fields, arrived here from Fair banks yesterday, after a three weeks’ trip down the Yukon river. All agree that the stampede will be the greatest since, the famous rush to the Klondike, 13 years ago, but many old time gold seekers are pessimistic over the prospects for getting sudden wealth from the gravel along the banks of the Iditarod and Innoko rivers. Conservative estimates place the number of prospectors who will arrive here during the early summer at 5,000. Many nowon the ground say the summer camp will not support more than 1,000 miners, and that large numbers of the late comers are doomed to disappointment. They say only seven miles of pay dirt has been located and that none cf this is extraordinary. It is believed that at least half of those in the camp, Iditarod City, will turn back to the Kuskowill, where they expect to locate a camp, 50 miles across the divide. At present Iditarod City is but a small camp, consisting of a few cabins. No wharf has been built and freight is being dumped on the ground. During the present high waters steamboats from Fairbanks are able to reach here, but later it will be impossible for any but the smallest steamers to get above the mouth of the Iditarod. Mrs. W. A.
