SATURDAY, MAY 18, 1895.
The Alaskan Gold lie (lions.
Lust season's yield of gold from the
Yukon river district, in Alaska was
about $249,000, according to an esti ���
mate gathered from miners nnd business men in the district by tbe Alaska
News. The returns are undoubtedly
l)ig, but tbe labor of getting the gold,
as described by one of the oldest min-
nt-'s in tho region, is very urent. The
_ i; ii district is veiniifkubly difficult
of rurcess, and n great many adventurers who have started hO|iefully from
Juneau have failed even to get near
tne gold region, It is au expensive
journey, too. Then lho character of
the gold mining und the limitations
under which it must be done have sent
many fairly experienced miners back
in despair.
In many districts tho gold-bearing
rock is twenty or more feet below the
���surface, and shafts must be sunk to
that dep'b through ground frozen
solid und by a most laborious process.
Tlie prospect holes are usually ubout
three and a half feet wide by six feet
long. Enough wood must be cut to
cover this space, and a rousing fire be
kept up for almost a whole day before
the ground is sufficiently thawed for
the miner to get out about a foot or a
foot uud a half of gravel and soil. One
man can burn a hole down about a
foot a day.     Tho   work can be done
ily when all the surface water is
I, otherwise it would drain into
i r , irespect hole, Iu this region wells
have been sunk seventy-live loot or
mote, all through frozen ground, and
tlie miners say they never got below
the frost line.
In other districts the work can be
done only in the very brief summer,
from the middle of May until about
the middle of September, and usually
for only about ninety days. In these
regions the ground ia not frozen so
;.:.r;.>. ati'i tin* gravel and soil cau be
tvashed from the bed rock. Flumes
must lie built from the creeks und the
water conducted to the claims. The
bud rock is from 10 to 2.1 feet below
tho surface, and all the overlying soil
must bo washed away before the gold
is accessible. A working supply ol
water is rarely obtainable for more
than ninety days ol the year. Usually
almost two entire seasons arc consumed in this preliminary work before
a sight of the gold is obtained, and
the miner must have money as well us
pluck to keep him going until he
strikes pay gruvel. The gravel needs
to be remarkably rich to compensate
lor the arduous nnd tedious labor of
reaching it.
When tbe claims are worked by
burning prospect boles in the winter,
hot water is needed for washing the
gravel when it is obtained. Usually
wheu the gold-bearing gravel has been
reached the returns have been handsome. Along Miller Creek in the past
season or two the yield has averaged
as much as $1 or $1.50 a pan, and
claims staked out two or three years
-go are now held at prices varying
Irom ��2,000 to S20.000 each. j
I The extent of tlio gold belt of north*
.vest Alaska mul tins Canadian North*
ivts Territory is si ill a matter of
(.peculation. From the iiif.,rniatioii
brought by prospectors it is believed
Unit the belt covers a district from
seventy-five to a hundred miles wide
commencing on the head waters of
tbe Hootulinqua River, in British
Columbia, and following closely the
course of the Yukon River to and be-
yond the Artie Circle, a distance of
about 900 miles. It is probable that
dozens of tributary streams, as yet
unmapped, many doubtless unknown,
are rich in gold and silver. The vast
region is practically unexplored. The
mining at present going on is but
nibbling on the edge of the rich region.
But wheu the gold and silver mines
are systematically opened up, it will
be a region for the capitalist and not
for the individual miner. Tbe ground
must be exceptionally rich in gold to
pay one or two miners working for
themselves. With capital large districts could be worked in a systematic
way uud big profits bo realized. From
all accounts, that is how the Yukon
gold and silver region will be made to
give up its riches.-S-ientitic American.

every man here, and to accommodate,
may be ordered at this office. Price is
only $1.50 in cloth, nnd $2.00 in

A school boy's pocket ia like soup���

Mrs. Snively had always kept a boarding house. At least, I have never been
able to find out when Mrs. Snively began to keep a boarding house. Though
she had a house full of lodgers who paid
well, she was always poor and did all of
the work, cooking, sweeping and the
rest of it. I have heurd guesses concerning n departed Mr. Snively, who did
not carry his debts with bim, but that's
neither here nor there.
The night before Mrs. Grant had told
her that she proposed to spend th�� ...it
day with her daughter in u neigh '.wring
village, and would Mrs. Snively hare an
early breakfast, so that she might c*tc���
the train* (The train left at nine, nnt
Mrs. Grunt was nervous). Strms-jely
enough, old Mr. Grumpy luul infaimed
her that he also would lie absent on the
morrow, Iieing invited to dine with a
friend, and would she feed his parrot in
'bis absence, precisely at noon?
Then nt breakfast, early breakfast,
young Mr. Lovelace hnd snid in n -*��ry
hesitating way with rising color, that he
hnd nu engagement, oh!���er���tout he
would not be there at dinner, would be
elsewhere, that is, in fact. Furthenmre,
Mr. and .Mrs. Qowell and their three
children were observed making preparation for departure about ten o'clock,
and when Mrs. Snively ventured to ask
them their plans she learned that they
proposed to drop in on the minister's
family at dinner. And wouldn't they be
surprised 1
That left no one in tbe house bnt old
Miss Le Croix, and she was confined to
her room with rheumatism, so that Mrs.
Snively washed up the breakfast dishes
with a strange feeling of leisure. Thus
she soliloquized;
"Let's see. What's to-dayt Day before yesterday I made bread. Or was it
yesterday? Yesterday. So to-day's Saturday and to-morrow's Sunday. Let's
see. Last March �� year ago. it s fourteen lasting mouths since I've lieen inside a church. (The hard-working little
woman's memory waa not good, but
this was undoubtedly true.) How good
it would be to hear tho benediction
again, 'Now unto him who is aide to
keep,' and to see them take up the collection, so pleasant like. Ank let's see.
How does Coronation start?" and tha
cracked voice quavered through the
grand old tune, as the dish*wiper polished the chinuwure.
"I'll go to chnrch tomorrow, Providence permitting and nothing hindering. Now, for the first time in fourteen
months, I have a chance to get a day's
work ahead. We can bare a codfish
dinner to-morrow. How can I manage
now? Chicken I can warm np in a minute. And pie. too." Here Mrs. Snively's meditutio s entered a sacred realm
iuto which I do not dare follow her.
What busy lionrs succeeded, preparing for the expected church-going on
the morrow I She swept anil dusted and
tidie*! up the house for Snnday, because
"the folks wouldn't be back till too late
to muss things up again, thanks be to
goodness!" People in passing looked at
her very qneerly aa she beat ber rugs
out of doors nnd washed tbo parlor windows. "I suppose I am a sight to behold," she confessed, looking down on
an indescribable housekeeping uniform.
Thrre were not quite enough potatoes
for Sunday's dinner, so she went out to
a large garden back of the bouse���a
garden in which tbe thrifty old woman
did most of the work���and dug a peck
of the very best. "Didn't folks ever see
a woman handle a hoe before?" she indignantly soliloquised, observing how
people iu the street stared at her and
turned around to look back nt her,
laughing rudely. Mrs. Snively felt
lonely and ill used as she tugged the
basket back to the house and began to
prepare the Sunday potatoes.
She took np her dinner on a neat tray
to rheumatic old Miss Lo Croix, who
must have felt particularly cross just
then, for she snapped out: "Who'sbeen
making all that racket about the house,
this morning?"
"The folks were all away, ud I've
taken the opportunity to get a little
ahead in my work," faltered forth meek
Mrs. Snively. "I'm sorry I disturbed
"Huh! You'd better make your apologies to tbe  Lord,"  grunted Miss Le
Croix, taking up the prayer book which
I lay beside her reclining chair, and in
which she always read before eating.
Mrs. Snively thought that a queer re
mark from Miss Le Croix, but bowed
herself confusedly out of the room, carrying Miss Le Croi'xs vase to fill it with
fresh flowers. When this was done,
and Mrs. Grumpy's parrot fed, "Now,"
said Mrs. Snively. "I'll do my marketing for Sunday, and then cook what I
can all ready for to-morrow.
So she put on her marketing garb, a
uniform only less wonderful than her
housekeeping attire, and with an immense basket on her arm, sallied forth.
It was a beautiful summer day, and
strangely quiet.   "How pleasant it is,"
chirped Mrs Snively to herself, "and
j how every one smiles at me.   This is a
I cheery world after all, if I am a forlorn
woman in it.   How finely people are
getting to dress.   I'm sure I don't see
how thev afford it." muttered she as a
group of young ladles passed her in
beautiful gowns of shimmering summer
; goods.   And then she thought uf her
Sunday silk, lying undisturbed for four*
j teen months in the trunk at home, and
; woedered wbetuer it had become spotted.   She would examine it as soon as
she got home. '
Her cheery mood was dampened by
an encounter with the pastor of her
church, Rev. Dr. Bookster. who seemed
to answer her hearty how rather sternly. "He needn't look so mad," she
grumbled to herself. "Goodnt ss knows
I go to church as often as I can. If 1 e
had to keep house for nine cross-grair.ed
mortals as I do, he wouldn't go to
church but once in fourteen months,
Mrs. Snively soon grew jolly again, rs
a laughing, lutppy crowd of ciiiluren
came jostling toward her. hooks nud

Snively. "And dear me, tint; sweet

A square or two further she began to
come to tlie stores. "What's tho post

began Mrs. Snively, smartly, "why all

You'll have it next so that one van shop

"Why, Mrs. Snivel}-, don't you believe

But Mrs. Snively, big basket, marketing and all. a scared, fluttering, comical
little figure, was already half a square
away, scudding along with a sore heart,
half shrinking, half defiant.
"Well, no wonder," groaned she.
"The same life, week in, week out. One
day like the rest No one to talk to except the lodgers, and then only about
eating. I 1, .ve no Sum. y i my life,
and that's a tact. What ar. you .,-ig*
gling at, you impudent little brut?"
This to an urchin trotting from Suuday
school who stopped to gaze in undisguised wonder at the big basket.
Mrs Snively went home through bystreets, feeling woefully conspicuous,
and quite like a feminine Rip Van Winkle. When she reached her great,
lonely house, she set the big basket
down on the kiteiien table and herself
on a kitchen chair, and, stout-hearted
till then, indulged in a good ury. It
was not uierelv the loss of the lienedle-
tion and Coronation, great as that disappointment was; but tbe incident so
clearly disclosed her aad, isolated, monotonous life.
By snpper time, however, she had regained her natural, brave content, and
