Cold was tlrsl discovered in Alaska
on tbe Anuuk river, a tributary of (lie
Kuskokowiin river, which joins lhe
latter stream about twenty-five miles
belOW the trading post of Kahunnko-
flsky. The Anauk river was discovered
by Ivan Sliiieiison Lukeen In 1*12, at
which time he built a fort, called I.u-
keen's fort, on the Kuskowlin river,
twenty five miles ubovs the mouth Of
Uie Anauk. It was portly destroyed
by natives In 1H41 and rebuilt by Kn-
Inmakoff, a Russian trader, afterward
and cnlled KalnmnkolT redoubt.
In 1H32 the headquarters' of the Russian American Trading company were
at Sitka, and supplies were transport
��*1 from thence to Lukeen's fort by
way of Nushagak river. Tie chic river
and lake and down lhe Anauk river to
tho Knskowlm river and thence upstream twenty five miles to the fort.
In 1K37 the yearly supplies were sent
In by wny of the mouth Of the Kuskowlin river and Uie old way abandoned
as n summer route and used only for
the purpose of wending OUt the malls
during tho winter by dog teams It
was Hie only Winter route the Russians
ever used from any polni on Ihe Yukon
lo Uie outside (Sllkin and was only
abandoned for the purpose after they
left the country.
It was while on one of these trips In
1&12 Uuii the Russians dissevered gold
on the Anauk, ami it is known today m
the Yellow river of the Russians, It
Is not known whether they ever attempted uilulug on any large scale or
whether they found gold In paying
quantities, but It is thought to I*' tho
first time on record of gold being found
in this country.
LukeOn was born of Russian am:
Spanish-American Creole parents in the
Ross colony in California, lie was
Well educated at the Sitka school and
proved to be an active, energetic and
intelligent officer. In 1863 Lukeen
een,led the Yukon river from St.
chnel's to Fort Gibbon, at the Hud
Ray company's trading post, which was
bulll by McMurray, who descended the
Porr-upiue river in IS 17. Lukeen was
the first man who connected the Polly
river of Campbell and the sen. lie
returned to St. Michael's that fall. In
18(10 the Russian garrison at Klama-
koff redoubt, In charge of Hcmcntoff,
was Withdrawn, the United States having purchased Alaska from the Russians.���Ketchikan Mining Journal.

Black pearls used to be held as ot
small value, comparatively speaking.
At the present day a perfect black
specimen commands a much higher
price than the finest pink or white
pearls. They were first made fashionable by the Empress Eugenie, wife of
Xnpoleon III., who possessed a fanions
necklace of them which fetched ��4,000
at au auction after the overthrow of
the Imperial dynasty. This did not in
elude the single great pearl forming
the snap, which was purchased by the
MarqnlS of Bute for ��1,000. Mexico,
Tahiti, Fiji and the kingdom nf Ms-
dura, to the east of Malabar, supply
the markets of the world with the best
black pearls. One of tbe most curious
pearls from many jioiuts of view waa
that which the traveler Tnvernier sold
to the ruler of Persia 200 years ago for ,
f 100,000. It ts still in the possession of
the shah of Persia and Is now supposed to be worth ��135,000. Tbe Persian
monarch has a square glass case
among his bizarre collection of jewelry containing a vast heap of most
magnificent pearls four or five inches
deep, Into which one can plunge tbe
hand and spill them in cascades and
hand fu Is.

The reason for the above change

fact that the wording of the old
tariff was not colisi lered sufficiently
clear as to the passage of teams over
the bridge, formerly lhe tariff milium: oil a rate for "teams" and
' haiies Piuminerfelt a citizen of
New Westminster driving four horses
was summoned before Stipendiary
Magistrate rttlendrlgh on December

pay excess toll. The charge against

about   a    revision    of    the
Sleeping With Open Kr��.
All fishes which sleep do so with
their eyes open, as they are not pro
vlded with eyelids and cannot there>
fore close their eyes. From experiments made It was discovered that
Borne fishes have no preference for tho
nighttime, but sleep egually well during tbe day. They may be observed
resting quite motionless for periods,
apparently in sleep, except that, having no eyelids, they are unable to close
their eyes or exclude all influence from
without. The bsre also sloops witli
lis eyes open, for the simple reason
that its eyes ore unprovided with eyelids. Instead of these there Is a thin
membrane which covers the eye when
asleep. This membrane, as In the case
of certain birds, folds like a curtain In
tbe cornet of the eye and by an instantaneous action flics buck when sight Is
required, leaving lhe eye lniineilhUely
nnd fully open for the exercise Of sight.
Some  birds,   such  as  the  eagle,   also
have this membrane, which, when at
rest, lies in the corner of the eye, folded up like a drawn curtain.

In an Imperial city a criminal was
condemned to be beheaded who hud a
singular Itching to play al ninepins.
While his sentence was pronouncing
he hnd the temerity to offer a request
to be permitted to play once more at
his favorite game at the place of cxe-
cution, and then, he said, he would
submit without a murmur. Ah the last
prayer of a dying man, his request was
granted. When arrived at the solemn
spot he found everything prepared, the
pins being set up and the bowl ready,
lie played witli no little earnestness, !
but the sheriff at length, seeing that;
he showed no Inclination to desist, prl-
vately ordered the executioner to strike j
the fatal blow us he stooped for the ���
bowl. The executioner did so, aud the
bend dropped Into the culprit's hand
as he raised himself to see what had
occurred. He Immediately aimed at
th,- nine, conceiving that it was the
bowl which he grasped. All nine falling, tha head loudly exclaimed, "I have
won the game!"���From the German.

An  amusing  feature  of  the case  is
the allegation that all of ihe present

From the days of Adam and Eve to

meats and vegetables. For one reason or another people have resolutely

flesh, fish, fowl, fruits and plants.
Thus the apple, the pear, the strawberry, the quince, the bean, the onion, the
leek, the Hspnrugus, the woodpecker,
the pigeon, the goose, the deer, the bear,

Again, as we all know, mice are esteemed in China and in some parts of
India, but the ancient Egyptians,
. Greeks and Jews abhorred mice and
would not touch mouse meat. Hats and
field mice were sucred in old Egypt
and were not to be eaten on this account. So, too, In some parts of Greece,
the mouse was the sacred animal of
Apollo, and mice were fed in bis tom-
ples. The chosen people were forbid- ,
den to eat "the weasel and the mouse
iiiil lhe tortoise after his kind." These
came under the designation of unclean

. lug kinds of flesh which could not be I

Stained from sheep.    What Is tbe mat- I
ter with mutton chops?   Then, tho ancients   used   to   abstain  from   certain
vegetables.   Indeed, tho Romans sneered at those Egyptians who did not dare
to eat onions, leeks or garlic, und yet
the Romans themselves were superstl-
1 tlous about what they ate e��r what they
should avoid eating.
In Jils "Roman Questions" Plutarch
asks, "Why do the Latins abstain
strictly from the flesh of the woodpecker?" In order to answer Plutarch's
question correctly it is necessary to
hare some idea of the peculiar custom
and belief called "totemism." There Is
a stage of society In which people Claim
descent from and kinship with beasts,
birds, vegetables and other objects.
This Object, which la a "totem," or
family mark, they religiously abstain
from eating. The members of the- tribe
are divided Into eluus or stocks, encb
of which takes the name of some- animal, plant or object, as tin) bear, the
buffalo, tho woodpecker, thoasparairus,
and so- forth. No member of the/ bear
family would dare to eat bear meat.
bnt hi? has no objection to aatineajaf-
falo steak. Even the marriage law Is
based on this belief, and no man whose
family name Is Wolf may marry a woman whose family name Is also Wolf.
In a general way It may be saiat that
almost all our food prohibitions spring
from the extraordinary custom gen-
Mr. Swan, who
many years in
the Kongo Free State, thus describes
the custom: If I were to ask the Teke
people why they do not eat zebra flesh,
they would reply, "ChlJUa"���L e.. "It Is
a thing to which we have an antipathy," or, better, "It Is one-of the things
which our fathers taught us not to eat."
So it seems the word "bashllang"
means "the people who have an antipathy to tbe leopard;" the "basha-
lamba," "those who have an antipathy
to tbe dog," and the "basbtlaiiliuizefu,"
"those who have an antipathy to the
elephant." In other words, the members of these stocks refuse to eat their
totems, the zebra, the leopard and the
elephant, from which they take their
The survival of antipathy to certain'

Nearly a vear ago lhe treasury department of the I'nited States was
reminded of this great development
by the application of American transcontinental railroads for th" establishment of additional sub-ports of
entry on the international boundary
1 etween the western boundary of
North Dakota and the line dividing
Washington fiom Idaho. The demand
for these sub-ports was brought about
by the rapid settlement of agricultural lands In western Canada and the
increased production of wheat. The
American railroads wished to have a
share in  the transportation    of    thtg;
wheat to th? seaboard, the object be-

eleven reasons why an American consulate should be established in that
