An Editor's Hard Lot.
A melancholy picture of an edi-
tor's life in the state of Washington
is drawn by the Roslyn (Mich) Sen-
"There are always those who will
kick. For instance, if you publish
jokes with whiskers on them, some
will say that you ought to be in a
lunatic joint. If you don't print
something to smile at, they say you
are a pessimistic fossil. If you
spread youiaelf and write a good,
original article," they will say it is
stolen. If you reprint an article,
they say you can't write. If you
say a deserving word for a man, you
are partial; if you compliment the
the ladies the men are jealous; and
if you don't the verdict of the ladies
t fit to use in the construction of
rustle. If you stay in your office,
are afraid to remain on the
streets; if you do, you are lazy.
If you look seedy you are squander-
ing your money; if you wear good
clothes, you are a dude and don't
pJjy for them. If you play a social
game of any kind and get stuck,
you are a fish; if you win you are
a tin horn, and so it goes through
one continual round of ^pleasure

A Strficse Custom. *
■ The Bayanzi, who live along
the upper Congo, have a custom
which makes life a burden to the
married women. Brass rods are
welded into great rings round the
necks of the wive*. Many of
these rings worn by the woman
whose husbands are welt to ;lo
weigh as much as 30 pounds, and
fhis burden must be car j 1 aa
long as they live.
In one of the town halls in a
Japanese treaty port there is a
remarkable time pie e. It i.i con-
tained in a handsome frame,
three feet wide and five feet long.

scape, very cleverly carried out.
|n the foreground plum and
cherry trees appear in bloom,
while in the rear a hill is to be
seen, from which flows a pretty
casoade, imitated in crystal. From
this cascade flows a tiny stream,
which wends its way between
rocks and islauds, and finally
loses itself in a stretch of wood-
land. In a minature sky a golden

Koikook River, Alaska,
To The News: Having
friendly feeling for humanity and
my friends I feel it
my duty to try'aud inform them as
to the true situation of affairs in
this land of too much cold. Now
1 know enough of mines and min-
ing to see things right and 1 am no
sorehead over this matter, as it has
not been very expehsive. This is
a country I have long wanted to
see. My health has been fine and
I am now here waiting for a steam-
er to go to St. Michael's, 500 miles,
leaving my little boat for the first
time in a water trip of over 2400
miles from the head of Lake Linde-
man to this-point and quite a voy-
age on Forty-mile, Seventy-mile
and the Koikook rivers. These
rivers run swiftly and one can by
to 125 miles in twenty-four hours.
This makes travel quite rapid.
From St. Michael's I will go to
Kotzaba sound and see the latest
excitement, which I expect to see
is worse than the rest. 'Now I will
over-estimate so as to be more than
fair to the country. I shall review
the situation as actually seen and
will start out by saying there are
less than 150 paying mines in all
the northwest territory and Alaska
combined, and there are probably
over 7000_claims staked in all this
These claims are
is, the paying ones: Fifty in the
Dawson district, five on the Stew-
art river, five on Pelly, twenty on
the west coast, thirty in the Circle
City district, five in Manook, fif-
teen on Forty-Mile and possibly
twenty scattering. Now it has been
said that it is a hard country u
prospect. Well that is more than
true. There are the long, severe
winters; deep frozen . ground the
year round, and mosquitos and
gnats. Well, 1 thought it would
be hard to teach me anything new
about them, but I had only dealt
with small specimens before.

The stories o

the nurhber of rich
output of all this vast distrTc
about reach 8700,000, of which
Dawson produces about $6,000,000.
The output of Minook was less
than $100,000, still a Seattle daily
publishes the statement of $1,500,-
000. The great dailies of the Pa-
cific coast exaggerate to draw trade
to Seattle, Tacoma, Portland and
San Francisco. In all my know-
ledge of mkring countries this is
the very best one for the. men who
are not hardy, old prospectors to
stay away fjom. While the Pacfic
coast has so far been greatly bene-
fitted, yet now when these poor
fellows flood their coast again they
will have to take care of many of.
My boy Fred has gone out and
will likely be in Galveston in Sep-
tember with all his dreams of great
wealth gone, but in good health.
It was a great trip, worth the mon-
ey it cost. With all the old and
new prospectors who are scattered
over this great country there has
not in the last eight month's been
a single new strike worth mention-
ing. and lifeMs too short to follow
up such prospects for any great
length of time in a country so bar-
ren of ordinary comforts of life.
The transportation companies and
the merchants of the Pacific,
through the medium of the papers,
have given the poor chee chocker
(which meaus new men) a great
dose that they will long remember,
but for old hardy prospectors who
who love the beautiful snow, un-
derstand Indians and dogs, and
like to live outside the pales of
civilization, there is in this land a
paradise found. W. A. White.

tist, will send to sufferers, three free
bottles of his newly discovered rem-

Nothing could be fairer, more philanthropic or
carry more joy to the afflicted, than the gener-
ous offer of the honored and distinguished chem-
ist, T. A. Slocum, M. C., ofNewYork City.
He has discovered a reliable and absolute cure
for consumption, and all bronchial, throat and
chest diseases, catarrhal affections, general de-
cline and weakness, loss of flesh ana all con-
ditions of wasting away; and to make its great
merits known, will send three free bottles of his
newly discovered remedies to any afflicted read-
er of the Schulenburg Sticker.
Already his "new scientiflc system of medi-
cine" has permanently cured thousands of ap-
parently hopeless cases.
The Doctor considers it not only his profes-
sional, but his religious duty—a duty which he
owes to suffering humanity—to donate his in-
He has proved thei "dreaded consumption" to
be a curable disease beyond a doubt, in any cli-
mate, and has on file in his American and Euro-
pean laboratories thousands of "heartfelt testi-
monials of gratitude" from those bene^tted
and oured in aU parts of the world.
Catarrhal and pulmonary troubles lead to con-
sumption, and consumption, uninterrupted,
means speedy and certain death. Don't delay
until it is too late. Simply write T. A. Slocum,
M. C., 98 Pine street, New York, giving ex-
press and postofflce address, and the free med-
icine wiU be promptly sent. Please tell the
Doctor you saw his offer In the Schulenburg
