STARTLIS6 FACTS Regarding tbe Rigorous Climate of the Klondike Region,. A Pharos subscriber, residing in Minnesota, sends the following account of the antics cut by Alaskan winter weather as related to him by a gentleman lately arrived! from the great gold fields of that region: "The gentleman told me he had wintered there seven-years; that it was so cold in January that they froze the flames of their candles and sold them forstrawberrles.'they kept their fires over night by putting them out in the air and letting them freeze, thawing them out In the morning; he had seen four men die of colic from eating whisky that was frozen so hard that it, wouldn't thaw inside of them; the cows give ice cream'till they freeze to death: he knew a clerk in a hotel oa the Yukon who got irich selling tfae diamonds he wore, the diamonds bsing nothing but ice crystals that didn't thaw'till after the clerk had Was Placed 3n a Basket and Left on the Hoot Step—'Ton Are My Pa," Was ilie Inscription on a Card. An awfully mean trick was played on a newly married man ac Kokomc a few days ago, and he has not yet recovered from the shock to which his nervous system was subjected. Ooe morning last week U'oon opening his front door he was greatly surprised to find a bundle on tbe step that bore unmistakable evidence of containing a baby. He called to his vouog wife excitedly and her quick eye soon detected the card attached, on wbich were inscribed these ominous words: "You are My Pa! Take Me In." Then there was dire confusion. The most excited protestations could not satisfy tbe young wife and the young husband rushed off to find a policeman, io the hope that an officer might help him out of his dilemma and prevent, the disruption of a family. The officer examined the bundle and demonstrated there was no.baby, simply some old rags, which the food bride had put out in the woodshed for the ragman. When the young man went down town he had to set 'em up, but he did so with a light heart. DEJIOC1UTIC PRIMARIES.

On the night of the murder Mrs, Terriss was sitting in tbe drawing room of the Cottage, Bedford park, the late actor's home, with a pet dog—an intelligent fox terrier called Davie, after Mr. Terriss' favorite part of Lieutenant David Kicgsley in "The Harbor Lights" — comfortably asleep upon nor lap. ; Messrs.

Tbe behavior of Davie was so extraordinary that it seriously upset Mrs. Terriss for the remainder of the evening. It was exactly at 20 minutes past 7 chat 3Ir. Terriss was murdered. "My brother Will and I were playing chess," said Mr. Tom Terriss when questioned on the subject, "and tbe dog' was apparently quietly doling on my mother's lap, and it startled us all considerably as it bounded np and down the room with frantic snaps and snarls. My mother was very much alarmed and cried out: 'What does he see? What does he see?' convinced that the dog's anger was directed at something unseen by us.
