The-crossing of Atlin lake proved  to be the. most .difficult and danger-,  ous .part .of Ihe.trip. It took five  hours to cross. In the boat were  four .people, eleven dogs and a sled,  aud over. 600 pounds of mail and  baggage. Arriving close to the  Atlin shore slush ice was encountered and a slow and tedious passage  effected. Taking into consideration  the' battle against the elements, the  mail carriers are doing well, aud  there is no 'kick' coming.  Pine City Paragraph s.

' "'  It is said that a ghost, or some  uncanny thing, is prowling around,  the Pine creek bridge leading lo  Spruce. 'Take a' tumble,' boys,  and don'I get caught by the spirit.  The guardian of the law has a clue.  He is always willing to oblige the  ladies.  The Discovery rink has been  thrown open on Monday afternoon  aiid evening for skating only. ��� T.he  balance of the week there is both  curling,and skating. Curling practices are 'going on all the time:'  The Discovery boys expect soon to  be wearing- the .scalps of the Atlin'  players at their .belts.   ,  An interesting lazy-stick contest  is' looked for in Atlin Christmas eve,  between'' 'Billy' Conroy and Phil  Hampton? Fifty "dollars a side has  alfeady been'wagered. 'Billy'.is in  training across Atlin lake, pulling  up'ystumps, in company with Dan  McKeiizie. Phil', has an old windlass rigged up in the cellar, with  Tom Machel on tlie handle. Take  your choice, gentlemen.  A young gentleman of Boulder,  accompanied,by a young lad}-, visited Discovery a lew days ago. They  were rather .late .returning to the  creek, consequently the 'bee of the  woods' was alarmed and a search  was instituted. The missing party  turned'up all right, the delay being  caused by a bad trail and many  tumbles in:thesuow.

Iu Atlin, as in all other camps of  a similar nature, shut in as we are  for months at a time, there should  be accord and harmony' in our  midst. Little personal differences  should be binied in a common and  united effort for the good of the  community. Our pleasures are few  and there otijihl lo be, on the pari  of those residing here, an endeavor  to keep them preserved, if possible  adding to and suggesting others.  In doing such each and all rise-  above petty things and littleness  aud become men in the broad true,  sense, worthy citizens. Occupied  with business during business hours,  and pleasureable pursuits during  kour leisure hours, the lime passes,  and the otherwise long and dreary  winter is over before realized. ' This  is as it should be.  On the other hand, dissension  creeps in. Little differences of  opinion grow into dislikes. Cliques  are formed and all possible chances  of harmony are destroyed. ,Where-  ever one goes is heard the sound of  the 'hammer.' Knock ! Knock !  Knock! Shakespeare says: "'Tis  true, 'tis pity, an' pity 'lis 'tis .true."  To what can we attribute this?.  Let us cogitate. Let us think. In  time wc come to this'conclusion:���  It can only be the results of the  "knocker." Webster and other  authorities have not as yet added  the word to their vocabulary. At  the same time everyone knows what  a "knocker" is.  He goes about, not like a roaring-  lion, but like a braying jackass,  seeking whom he may "knock."  Nothing is good, nothing is right.  He will sit in an arm chair, or perchance stand before the bar in easy  and graceful altitude. As long as  he has a listener he will talk. His  jingle is but the excresence of a  festering mind. He tells how mighty  he is in speech and deed. He carries tales, most of them the offsprings of his own distorted imagination. This specimen is the worst  kind ol a ."knocker." There are  several kinds. Number two stands  in his place of business and tells  how much superior his establish-  'incut is to any other. Tn fact he  wouldn't take the other man's  "dump" as a gift, and he cannot  understand how the poof devil  makes a living. Number three  .sloes not say much.. He is the sly  and slick "knocker." He draws  attention to things with a sagacious  nod of head. When listening to a  tale from another "knocker" he  winks and thinks he is looking  wise,   or  he  shrugs his shoulders  ed to mean���"well,   what  did I tell  you."  ' Now, for the sake of the district,,  our interests in it, and our dignity  as men, let this "knocking" be a  thing of the past. Ding it! clang jt!  dum.it! quit it! So long as the  other chap is attending lo his own  business, keep busy with your  own.. Quoteing somebody wise we  say:���A man should be judged by  his charity and industry; your liberty ends where his begins and his  ends where yours begins.  This article is a "knock" aud a  hard one, but it is good medicine  for those who need it. A newspaper-should, be assort of guardian of  the rights of all citizens. Good citizens need no touching up, the  others? well���"a word to the wise  is sufficient." .  of  ' Following is a beautiful  piece  satire, written 'down to date.'

Fletcher T.  Hamshaw,  manager  ot the McKee creek mines, left on  Tuesday for the outside.    Speaking  re operations on McKee the coming  summer- he said:    The top dirt will  be piped  into the   creek, ��� leaving  about twelve  feet of gold  bearing  gravel.    This, with about three feet  of bed-rock, will be taken up by the  Steam shovel.     The dump   boxes  will be built  near the canyon, giving a drop  for the tailings of no  feet.    The creek here has a 13 per  cent,  grade aud a sufficient head of  water   to   guarantee   no blockade.  There is three years'   work  on the  virgin ground in   the  bed of the  creek  before  the benches need  be  touched.    An 11-inch pipe, uudera  50-foot head, will be iiiu the entire  length of the dump- boxes to wash  the heavy gravel and boulders before passing over the grizzly.    The  plant will   include fully a  mile of  railroad, the necessary motive power, and thirty 6-yard cars.  J. \V. THOMl'SON, MANAGER.  ���    BATHS FIFTY CENTS  Private! Entrance for Lndles.
