And they did pull. Staying  power won out, however, aim apparently the loiggers were in better condition for.hard work than the town  men, as after four minutes' -straining, the rope was -.gradually drawn  to the line, and the little white  mark passed, with the loggers, in pos-.  session of the longer end.

Just '.liefore half time Adam  again worked the bull up near the  bars, and talcing a pass from Midi  ie, sent tlie .sphere .through once'more  for the homo  team.

The footlKiil game was over at 3  o'clock, aud. from the groi nds, the  spectators hurried to the Spit, where  the regatta "was scheduled to come  ofi  at   throe 'o'clock.'

ALASKAN COAL  IN DEMAND  1 .). K. Kane, a consul ting eiLgiiu'er  uf Atlanta, (in., is at the Raleigh.  In the last twenty years Mr. Kane  who has mad.: examinations of a  huge portion of the coal bods of the  world, reports that, leaving out of  consideration the gold that ha.s been  mined in Alaska, together with itii  other immense resources, its coal  beds will vastly more than repay the  l-iiitcd States for its purchase prico.  ���������'The. Alaskan coal," said Mr. Kane  "is of the true '..itu'iianous formation, and is e.jiial to any coal mined  in the western part of the United  States. The work ot opening up the  coal heels of Alaska has thus far  been  nothing  more  than   prospective.  "The immense, commercial advantages to accrue to Alaska through  the developiiKiit of 1hc coal mines  cannot he overestimated. At via*  present time steamers leaving for Alaskan ports for Seattle are rapiirod  to carry suilicvent coal for a round  trip. With the coal mines producing ' not only for local consumption,  but for shippi-.ig trade, the ships will  only he forced to coal for the trip to  Alaska, thus saving valuable space  which can be used for the shipment  of freight,"  - The coal fields  0u the west   coast  oi  the scratch.

Chief am  r.11,2; them are corn and wheat.. Tin  distillers of the country are -estimated to consume about 'tw.en"ty-four  million bmtiels of corn a year. Tim  total, of.'all'-grains'consumed, hy the  distilling industry in,11105 was thirty  millions. The. United States is pre-  ���������a-iniii.cnt.ly a surplus corn country,  ���������and' the use of alcohol in the arts  ttill create" .'an'ihcreaspxl demand for  the homer-grown product. Some mar-  ���������et authorities have'figured that this  new source of demand will materially improve -the price of corn, but it  must n.t. be forgotten that in e-x-  ������������������oni the bulky by-product or body  of the corn.makes an excellent cattle  i'iod, valued (at. a price sufficient to  cover the cost of the distilling. Not  i.nly is the food valuable, but it is  more valuable in some respects than  the whole corn, .because of the treatment il has reeeivicd, making it all  ihe" more digestible for stock feeding. This piihaiice.mc.nt- of the mutri-  :i e value is sinvikir to the results  ul,lained by siloing dry fodder by fermentation with sufliciont moisture to  make the feed more digestible, thus  releasing its nutritive'.(dualities.  How far this new industry will affect cattle feeding it- is too early  In aiit.ici|ial.e, One possible effect  will be t-o concentrate, oettlc- feeding  *oi"nc time to the vicinity of distilling estmhlishm-ints.
