HERE AI THE PEOPLE.
Complete List of Applications Filed in the Land-Grab? bing Scheme. The Times has for several days past kept standing in its columns a long list of delinquent lam's filed on and subject to sale under an act passed at the session of the General Assombly of lSDi-'O."), and amended nt the session of 1895-'00. The Times now publishes for the benefit of whom it may concern a list of property thac has been filed on, and notices of which have either been served by Sergeant Tillett or are now with him and may be served at any moment. Many of these notices havo beon served during the past few days, but as the sergeant is only required to servo the notices on the party in whom the title stood at time of sale for taxes, and as in many instances the owner at that time has since parted with his title, this list is published lu order to give the present owner an opportunity to know his danger. Every property owner should carefully examine this list: A i?i?r.l< OWNRIt Dksckhtion. M. W. Tinner. Year T. F. Slearnes. S. S. cor. llenrv and IMnc sts. 1892 . I,. 1). Hell .1 Lot 22, see.

"TZ T, Clever Contrlvnnce Which la Not Protected by IV.t entu. This is the way we catch hogs for ringing. Take an ordinary shipping crate for hogs, take off cleats at both ends, on one end nail at four corners of the crate four cleats two inches by three inches. Over these crosswise at top and bottom of crate nail two two inch by three-inch strips. Through these bore one-half inch holes, dodging three inches apart. Into this space in? sert two movable levers with holes in them opposite those in e'eats. When finished the end of the crate will look liko this: Levers No. 1 and 2 are held in place by two bolts without burrs. This makes them adjustable to different Bized hogs. No. 2 is thrown back ready for the hog to put bis head in. Set the "trap," we call it, at your pen door, with hogs iirjide, witli one man or boy to chase one at a time into it and as the hog runs his head into t'.io open trap catch him just behind the e.irs by moving le er No. 2 to an up? right position quickly. When you have your ho;; in the trap you can ring him at your leisure. We have used thin kind of a licvice for ton years. There is no patent on lt.?E. D.

"No, said the hardware man to tho farmer as ho tied up the package of nails in the paper, "au you say. people t ilk about the low price of what they Bell, ami don't say ft word about the low price of what they buy. Take those nails now. What do you suppos i those nails would have cost you ten years ago? Just about ti tents a pound, and now you can take the lot o better goods at 3 cents and the ex? tra wrapper thrown in. That's not much, you ssy. Not so much on a little lot of nails, perhaps, but It) Cents Isn't much on the husnel of potatoes you brought in just now, and that's all the difference in pneo from ten years ago, and yet you grumble at the low price. It's not the pound of nails that hurts you. Everything in my store has gone down the same way. You farm? ers forget that you have things to buy as well as things to sell. Want to buy a plow this year? There's a dandy for $12. Ten years ago I'd have asked $10 for It. There's $4 saved to you at one clip. There's a better planter than the one I soid you ten years ago for $ti(), a whole lot better. Take it along for $40. Remember that binder yon bought of me ten years ago for $1SU?

The Temptations by Which Alaskans Part With Their Gold. There are many men on the Klon? dike, it is claimed, who will probably never return to civilization. This is the statement of Jack Carr, the mall carrier, and it is not very joyful news he brings to anxious relatives in this city and elsewhere. It is not because the "boys" are not making money in the north that they cannot come home, but because the temptations of the sa? loons and dance halls at Dawson are too much for them and every cent they earn is spent that way. It does not take very long to run through a small fortune in Alaska, if one is in? clined to he the least bit sporty. It costs from 60 cents to |5 a dance in the Dawson dance halls, and with whisky at 75 cents per drink a man has to be very lucky to keep the pace. The "boys" in question arc not ex? ceptionally lucky. They have been on the river a long time, and have a good claim if they would work it industri? ously. They saved no money when they were working down here, and Carr says they are not doing it in Alaska. They have hardly enough to purchase a supply of grub for the win? ter, ami as a result of their drinking and dancing, live in a terrible fashion. They are on a spree for about half of the time, ami on the other days in the week arc too much played out to work. The stories told of this Klondike whis? ky are interesting, if true. There are seven or eight saloons at Dowson, counting a new pnen that bar, Dawson, counting a new one that has the well-known Snohomish saloon keeper and variety man. At Louse Town, above Dawson, there are four more. It is from the Louse Town sa? loons that the whisky stories come. Their whisky, it is said, is made from alcohol and brown sugar. With every glass placed on the bar a whisk broom is placed beside it. A Soaltie man was telling the story of his first drink to a few friends, and in the course of the story explained the use of the whii k broom. On his calling for a glass of whisky the broom was handed to him. as the others at the bar. Not wishing to show his ignorance. ho waited until the others had finished. After downing the mixture they went over to a pile of sawdust, where for a few min? utes they rolled around in a lit. The whisk broom was used to brush off the sawdust. The Seattle man poured his glass on the floor, having received a vivid temperance lesson. There nrn said to he many men at Dawson in just the lix the Seattle boys .spoken of are in. There is plenty of work for them to do, hut they won't do it. Or, If the do, ihe money goes into tbo saloons and dance halls, while during the winter they live off tbo more fortunate miners. These men would be in a sorry fix If there was any great scarcity of provisions at the camp, as there seems to he a oosslbtl ,:v that there will be tn'^ vo.ir. OR.

Cho Fltlfttl Kate at William U. Martin, of Missouri?Ho Had Itobbeil a Miner ?f a Side of llucou, and the Klondlkvrs Mude au Kxatuple <>f Uliu. A letter from Juneau, Alaska, tells 3f the lynching of William G. Martin >f Missouri for stealing food at Lake Bennett. Martin had sold what he could of his provisions at Skaguay, abandoned the ?emainder, and started in for the Klon? dike "with less than a sixty-pound pack 5n his back. Being so "light." his ar? rival attracted particular attention ?from camps of boatbuilders. His pack was secretly examined to see how much grub he had. It was noticed that he had about twenty pounds of bacon among other things, but no sugar. I Martin camped back on tho side of the hill In the brush alone. He must have heard how scarce provisions are ex? pected to be in Dawson City next win? ter. He was suspected and watched, mit it was not still after he had tried to buy provision. The second day it was seen that ho had sugar for his coffee, and that night his pack was uncovered and a side of bacon branded with the private mark of one of the campers was found. A poor attempt had been made to ob? literate the mark. The investigators reported the facts to the few campers who had not yet turned in. and. al? though it was late, the entire camp was quietly aroused and a miners' meeting hold. It was the general sen? timent that an example should bo made of the thief. The question was put. The reply to the motion was an instantaneous rising to the feet of ev? ery miner, and a crowd of about sixty determined men moved off Into the brush, in the direction where Martin's dying campflre could be seen dimly lliekerlng. Martin was asleep. lie was unrolled roughly from his blan? kets and stood blinking on his feet. "We stand no stealing in this camp. Your time has come," Martin was told, lie started to speak, but said nothing, ind stood trembling from head to foot. "Do you want to leave a message to your friends?" he was asked. ' No," said the man on the brink of the grave. "Do you want to pray?" "No," said Martin. "If there is anything you want to say. say it quick," said the spokes? man. A slipknot had boon made at tho end :>f a long painter o.' the boat, and the ncose we6 put over Martin's head. "ficys," said Martin, with a falter? ing voice, "you know how It is when a man has mortgaged his all, starts for the Klondike, and s?os that he can't got there. If 1 am not hanged my lifo is not worth much to me anyhow. I've got 1,000 pounds of stuff at Skaguay, and I'll promise on my life to carry it in here for you." "Enough of that. It would not save you 11 the stuft was here." Martin was half dragged down to the shore of the lake. It took less than two minutes to lash two slender pines, dressed for masts. In a forked upright, and drop another ma6t from the rock on the bluff over between tho forks. "May 1 write a message, boys?" asked Martin. "He quick about it," was the an? swer. Poor Martin took a letter from hla pocket and kissed It. Then he tore it lip, saving only the back of the envel? ope, stooped, pulled off his rubber boots, and, placing the paper on the sole of one, wrote in darkness the fol? lowing in a dim and trembling band: "Hoping that with the money I might make in the Klondike, sacrifice would go out the door and love return through the window, I left you. Kiss Ted, but never tell him. (.Signed 1 Cid." In the morning Martin's body was seen turning first one way and then back, like a kettle dangling over a tire, bis hands tied behind him with a pack strap. On the other half of the envelope which Martin tore in two were his name and the postmark St. Louis. Row II? Trapped ItulibKo. Mr. William H. Hammond, of El ired, N. Y., has one, of the finest ken? nels of dogs in this part of the State, ind he knows pretty much all about Jogs and other animals. Last winter ae thought he would catch some rab? bits for market, and he became deeply interested in the sport. Soon be hit on an ingenious scheme. He built a large bonfire in the woods jne very dark night when the snow was six inches deep. The bunnies for miles around were attracted by the light and ran to the spot. There they sat and talked with each other, wanned their paws, became drowsy, muled up, and went to sleep to dream of a land that was always warm and :om fort able and abounding in food. The snow about the lire molted, the fire died out, the snow water froze, and when the rabbits awoke in the gray dawn they were frozen fast. In fact, they did not wake up at all, be? cause they were frozen to death. Then the wily William came around with his hatchet, chopped out 150 of the rabbits, and sent them to the New York market. VoixoiiuiiM Wild Flowers. Recently a small boy ate buttercups and as a result died. Since then there has been published a list of poisonous wild flowers, popularly considered harmless, but certain to be fatal if eaten by a careless person or Ignorant child. Those Rowers are.
