GARNER, July 4.—Many people are anxious to learn something of Alaska since the discovery of gold on Klondike river, and having obtainedsotne knowl edge of this country during my receni visit there I will endeavor to give to the readers of THE UPPER DES MOINES a brief description of it. My advice to the person contemplat ing a trip to the gold fields would be to consult a physician and determine Whether or not there is anything the matter with his heart, as a great number of people get faint in that regi6n o! their anatomy before they get.over the trail which leads to the h.earf of navi gation. The Garner company, of which I was a member, starte'd from Tacoma on the 7th day of March and landed at Dyea, Alaska,, >6n the 12th. At this time thousands of people were arriving and we found it difficult to get possession of bur outfits after they had been unload ed. However, three days' work found us with most of our belongings on the banks of tho Dyea river. Before we start over the pass I must give you a description of • Dyea as it was on the 12th of March. For many years there has been an Indian village where tho town now stands, also a trading post. Since the first of September, 1897, a booming place has sprung up, in which every lino of business to be found in an ordinary country town is well represented. The actual residents at that time numbered, I should judge, about 2,000, I will not ask tho reader to follow the Garner company over the trail, for we were seven weeks making the trip. Eight miles from Dyea you will find a village called Cannon City; nothing there but restaurants and bunk houses. Four miles up the canyon Sheep Camp is located, and this is a stopping place for everyone that goes over the trail. About ten thousand people were camped there during the months of April and May. The next moye is to the Scales, the foot of the famous Chillcat moun tain. It is about two miles from Sheep Camp oyer tho roughest part of th pass. There are two very long, stee] hills to climb. While the trail was in good condition a horse could haul four hundred pounds on a sled up these hills, but a large part of thefreight was taken up with a block and tackle. The slide which occurred on April 3 was at this point. One hundred men were buried in the snow, and seventy-two o them were dead when taken out. Two tramways are in operation on the mountain taking freight up by means of a cable, run by an engine. The Chillcat mountain is twenty-eight hundred feel high and so steep that a rope is strung from top to bottom so that people can guard against falling backwards. Men who are accustomed to the work will carry one hundred and fifty pounds up this mountain and make five trips in a day. The rate is H cents a pound. From the summit to Lake Linderman, a distance of eleven miles, tho trail is good and people usually make the round trip in a day. A good dog team will go from the lake to the summit and return with six hundred pounds on a sled in about ten hours. The country is very rough, but the weather is not nearly so severe as is generally supposed.. A number of people died on the trail last spring—some with spinal raenengitls, others with pneumonia—both caused by exposure. On my way back from the lakes I stopped at Skaguay and was much surprised at the improvement made since the time we arrived there. About three thousand people are making this place their home, and have everything strictly up to date. The town has a good water system and a fine electric light plant. A railroad is now being built from Skaguay to Lake Bennett, and the promoters of the enterprise hope to have it in operation by Dec. 1. After that a trip from Algona to Dawson City in eighteen days with ease and safety. I believe the country has been greatly overestimated, and that ninety per cent, of the people that have gone to Alaska to dig gold will return with one thousand dollars worth of experience. M. E.

Breathe pure air alwaya In the lungs a most important physiological process occurs. It is from here that the blood laden with oxygen is seat to all parts of the body, giving off along its course its oxygen and taking up carbonic acid gas, which it brings at last to the lungs, when it is cast; out in expiration. More oxygen is talkeu in by inspiration and the same process is repeated. So let your breathing bo full and deep, going to the very bottom of the lungs in order that all of the blood in them may receive its full amount of oxygen before again starting upon its tour of distribution through the body. Cati one use anymore forcible argument in favor of loose clothing than this? It is absolutely impossible to secure plenty of oxygen if 'the clothing is worn at all tight; and oxygen is a food which the body must have always in abundance to keep well. The air leaving the lungs is laden with that deadly poison carbonic acid gas, which if given off in a close room when no provision is made for its escape and tho entrance of pure air soon renders tho air utterly unfit to breathe. Perhaps some night you will find yourself unable to sleep and tumble restlessly about in bed. When this occurs, go to an open window and inhale tho fresh air, breathing slowly and deeply. A few minutes of this and you con return to bed and probably will soon be sleeping quietly. What has happened? By its restlessness the body was asserting its need of more oxygen. Now you have given it what it so emphatically asked for, and it is quiet. We got as much uneasiness and disturbance from tho want of this food as when we do not oat enough, only the symptoms are not so well understood nor recognized so quickly. Always keep your mouth closed and breathe through your nose. Thon tho air is warmed, slightly moistened and largely freed from particles of dust, so that when it enters the lungs it does not irritate them. A condition often mot with by physicians is anremin. In this trouble the patient is pale, lifeless looking, tired vnd generally used up, often without )eing able to tell distinctly how she loos feel. Sometimes these patients say that they have not enough blood. It is really only an element of the blood ivhich is wanting, but that is a very mportant one—namely, the red blood corpuscle. When you know that it is only those corpuscles which have tho power to take ip and carry oxygen, you see at once how important it is that the blood should not ba lacking in them. Good, wholesome food, plenty of it and well digested will give you the corpuscles. Furnish them with the oxygen and the body will have an important element toward health.—What to Eat.

Section 21 - WARFARE IN THB PUNJAUB, HERDS OF WAR ELEPHANTS, HARNESSED TO CANNON, ESCORTED BY flOUN- THE SOUTHERN CROSS. Changing Position In the Heavens of This Celebrated Constellation. If Job were to rise from the dead and look upon the heavens, says Professor T. J. J. Se« iu The Atlantic, he would see the constellations related to one another as of old, but he would find that the pole had shifted its position among the stars, and if an immortal could witness the grand phenomenon which the precession of the equinoxes produces in about 12,900 years he would find the heavens so altered that the former aspect could be recognized only by an understanding of the changes which had intervened. As Humboldt justly remarks, the beautiful and cele' -ated constellation of the Southern Cross, never seen by the present inhabitants of Europe and risible in the United States only on our southern coast, formerly shone on the shores of the Baltic, and can again be seen in that latitude in about 18,000 years. The cross will then be visible on the shores of Hudson bay, but at present it is going rapidly southward, and in a few thousand years will be invisible even at the extreme point of Florida. In like manner the brilliant star Oa- nopus in the constellation Argo, situated some 87 degrees south of Sirius, is now visible in the southern portion of the United States. In about 12,000 years it will cease to rise even in Central America. From the same cause, if Ptolemy were to again look upon the heavens at Alexandria, he would be unable to recognize Alpha and Beta Ceutauri, which he easily saw and catalogued in the time of Hadrian. At present these magnificent stars are just visible at the pyramids, near Cairo, and in a few nore thousand years they can be seen jy dwellers on the Nile only in upper Egypt. CTsus. .^.

A woman's club that invested in a clubhouse not long since was much igaiust its will obliged to employ men aborers. The architect was a woman, jut it was found impossible to procure women carpenters, masons and plasterers. One day shortly before the comple- ion of the structure a workman who was employed upon the roof made a misstep and thrust his foot through the >eautiful but not yet dried ceiling of the auditorium. Just at this time, too, t number of club members chanced to be in the building, and their emotions at the sight of the pedal extremity pendent from the ceiling may be better imagined than described. The man was iventually rescued and the hole mended, mt the patch still shows upon the ceil- ng, and as the first vice president puts t, "Well, I knew that if a man had anything to do with this club he would >e sure to put his foot in it.
