After being on the retired list for a month, Fred Carter is able to use his pins again. The plaster cast in which his knee was en cased after the accident, has been removed, and the injured mem. her found to have set in good shape. Fred s ramblings are still confined to the house, hut he will be able to get out of doors in a couple of days. Henry Weir aud Hart Day left here on Friday morning with a dogteam and camping outfit for a trip to Georgetown and the scene of the new strikes across the hill in the interests of theit tospective houses. In Iditarod, beaming with a “smile that won’t come off,” when F. A. Cleveland comes to Flat he is literally bubbling over with merriment. Casey’s new bar is an elegant and substantial affair, the p ro duct of home industry, having been turned out from the shop of Shiek & McLeman, of Iditarod. Over its polished surface vessels bearing the vintages of many nations will find a smooth and speedy passage to their various ports of discharge. The impromptu concerts held at the Connolly are a source of pleasure to lovers of old-time songs and new. Both local and transient talent are availing themselves of the opportunity to try out their vocal equipment, to the accompaniment of good music, while to “educated feet,” whether encased in clogs or moccasins, Jack's musical appeal is irresistible. Having done all in his power to make his guests of the human race comfortable, Prank Stanley has turned his attention toward improving the condition of his canine boarders by installing a large heater, on which it will be possible to use two feed pans, in the commodious doghouse. Keyes & Mayhan’s stage is proving a great convenience to our townspeople since the schedule has been reversed. Leaving this end in the morning they can now pay a visit to the metropolis, transact their business, and get back horns in the afternoon, in stead of having to wait for moonlight nights or carry a bug to guide their footsteps thro' the maze of the city’s woodpiles. Building still goes steadily on. Finnegan & Mensil’s large t.wo-story log building on First avenue, near Gold street, is nearing completion, the builders being angaged on the roof. Across the creek, cabins are getting so numerous that it will be necessary to lay out streets soon. Trails are getting good now and travel of all kinds is moving along at a livelier gait, and the voice of the dog musher can be heard for miles. Well, with dried salmon at 40 cents and no bacon who could blame him? _ 1 Denrns Parent, who with Oscar Le torneau lias started a roadhouse at j upper Georgetown recently, was in town last week with a dogteam looking out for a few shorts in their culinary i department. They have a line log \ building there 20x22 and are now open for the accommodation of the public. J. C. Moody, the local attorney, left , last Wednesday on a hurry-up trip to ! Georgetown where he was called to de fend one Guiseppi Parras on the charge of giving red stuff to red men.

The Best Place toOutlit FRESH STOCK PRICES RIGHT Cro wley & Porter First Avenue, Between Willow and Richmond Streets, Iditarod NEVER MISSED FIRE ONE TIME The machinery was working good at that 100-h.p. dance given by the Gasoline Kids at Caribou hall last Saturday night, and it was pronounced a very spark ling success. A good-sized crowd gathered on the course, some with hoods off and soma with hoods on, and the going was pronounced perfect. With the starter’s pistol in the very first event, it was evident that there would be some high speed manifested and many records smashed beyond repair. The crowd was warned to keep back from the turns, but nobody lost a wheel or nothing turned turtle. In the way of individual decoration, there were a number of supreme efforts which did not only credit to the performers but to the company. Some of these turnouts received prizes, as did oth ers who could show particular lines of speed in terpsichorean man euvering. Here are some of the prize winners: Best gentleman waltzer, Claude Shea, prize, a Gillette razor, donated by the Red Cross drug store; best gentleman two-stepper, John Donohue, prize, box of cigars, N. C. Co.; best sustained char acter (tramp', H. Miller, prize, half dozen bottles champagne, Em pire Commercial Co ; most comical lady, Miss Kotsch, prize, bottle perfume, City drug store; best lady waltzer, Mrs. McGibney, prize, set of curtains (name of donor not furnished); best lady two step per, Mrs. Selma Swanson, prize, box handkerchiefs, Isaacs Bros. & Co ; best dressed lady (clothed in vari colored paper, printed with the headlines of the Iditarod Pioneer), Miss May Cahill, prize, pair of slipper, I. Goldstein; best dressed gentleman, Albert Wile, prize, sweater, by M. Friedman. Among the many other attractive costumes deserving of spe cial mention was that of Mrs. C. J. Sallander, who represented the press—one half of her costume was composed of Iditarod Nuggets and the other half the Pioneer. WAY BACK TO THE MINES With papers signed, scaled and delivered, Walter Hunter, partner of Charles Knell, Kddie McArdle and Louis Schimmelfennig left town Friday for Moore creek accom panied by Theodore Witte The partners have recently ac quired some extensive holdings on Moore as detailed in last week's issue and will make preparations this winter for early spring oper ations. Hunter will remain on the creek the balance of the winter where Schimmelfennig now is, and where they will be joined later by Knell and McArdle. Witte goes over to take a look at the creek, and may he among the operators next season. Virginia Harned, who has been so journing in the divorce colony at Reno, Nev., for several months, was granted a divorce from E. H. Sothern, the actor, on Oct. 15. Pops Pius XI. is again causing grave anxiety to his physicians. He has had a recurrence of his late illness and is now suffering severely from an attack of gout. _ Petitions were circulated in the ehurches of Spokane recently for sig natures calling on the municipal an. thorities to close the theatres on Sun days. ___ Enlarged Remodeled BLACK’S HOTEL Fort Gibbon THIS MERCANTILE OUTFIT ON BUM Somebody put the jinks on the E. W. Griffin concern out at Flat city last week and had the whole bunch of them in bed with some sort of a malady, each one with a pet ailment of his own. Ed Rusk was bitten by a dog, bumped his knee on a box and had a bad cold. He went to bed with a bandaged mitt, a stiff leg and a sore throat. Mrs. Rusk also took to the bed with an ulcerated throat, complicated with tonsilitis, and for a few days she was quite ill. Bill Atchison was overtaken by a severe attack of the grip, his enjoy ment being varied by the teethache which he relished to the utmest powers of the tooth. Sam Godfrey, not to be outdone, found time for a session with the grippe, and he ioo, took to the feathers, believing la grippe a nice person not to get acquainted with. _ Secretary of the Navy Meyer, in a speech to business men at San Fran cisco, Oct. 15, advocated the abolish i ment of half the navy yards on the At lantic, and congratulated the Pacific ■coast on having but two navy yards, as ! they can be brought to a state of i greater efficiency because of the num j her. He spoke against dividing the fleet, adding that it must be kept in tact, and that it should be kept in the ! Pacific, for there is more danger of war on the Pacific than on the Atlantic j coast. ___ j Have vour nuggets made into souve nirs at Simpson’s, the uioneer jeweler. j NOTICE is hereby given that I, Ande Lange, will not be responsible for any debts that Mrs. Jennette Lange has or may contract, (Signed) Ande Lange. Dis. Otter, Oct, 27, 1910. WILLOW DOOMED TO SUCCESS At a spot reported to be opposite the Willow creek roadhouse on the left limit of Willow and not far from the side line of the Wildcat association, the best pay yet found on that creek was struck about two weeks ago. After going through a false bedrock, Jean LaRenza and partner, found three feet of pay gravel from which they panned to to 15c. By those who know the creek this find is considered the real Per uvian paystreak, and apparently means that Willow is about to take her place among the live ones of the camp. Heretofore operations on the creek have been somewhat discourag ing as the narrow streak of gold on the right limit has never paid. Several outfits took a whirl at it last summer, but all had to give up, finding the pay spotted and thin at best. Later developments on the left limit bench where Manley took his options last summer, disclosed a considerable amount of low grade ground, but no defined paystreak had been located, and the ground was looked upon more as a dredging proposition. The new find which, as near as can be ascertained, lays between the right limit pay channel and the high bench pay of Manley’s grouud on the left limit, indicates the existence of a defined paystreak and future work there will be watched with interest. With the undoubted richness of Happy to hank cn, and the ex cellent prospects of Willow, it would not be surprising to see the creek line up as a fit running mate for Plat. I IS IT REALLY FIRST PHONE RECONNAISSANCE Although he has said little about it, there is little doubt but that Henry Weir’s visit to the Kuskokwim last week was for the purpose of looking over the telephone situation. Bert Hay, of the N. C. Co., went with him, and he goes to look into the affairs of the company at Georgetown. They left Wednesday with a dogteam —it being the intention of Ed McAdams to accompany them a3 far as he might with Seward as a final destination. Ed was going Outside, and still intends to. Hi» arrangement* for transportation became balled up and his departure was delayed until he can get another team. Weir has been heard to state that if the business showed any possibility of justifying it, the Iditarod Telephone Company would extend a wire to Georgetown, and in all probability this will be done before the spring breakup. Mr. Snyder,—yes, the same Snyder that runs the Snyder house at Flat, came blowing into town last Tuesday at the rudder of a fast dogteam. He rampsed right in and turned around and rampsed right out again. Coal oil and candles for sale at An derson Bros. & Norland's.
