Skagway, Alaska. To havo traveled
Into tho northern regions above tho
flfty-olghth parallel sometime during
one's career is the Initial requirement
for membership in the Arctic Brother
hood, unique among fraternal organ
izations. The Arctic Brotherhood was formed
shortly after tho gold rush to the
Klondike in 1898, and now includes in
the northern regions several hundred
active members. The first requirement
einco its organization has been an ex
tended residence above tho fifty-eighth
parallel, with tho exception of a few
distinguished citizens from the United
States and other countries who upon
their arrival In Alaska havo been made
Among its members "above tho flfty
elchth parallel" tho Arctic Brother
hood takes precedent over every civil
court If a matter of dispute of any
nature nrlBos between Arctic brothers,
the question is carried before the
membership of the local lodge at one
of Its weekly meetings.
All parties to tho dispute present
their arguments and then all tho
brothers not involved in the question
cast a vote which determines the set
tlement of the issue.
Various plans are conceived and ex
ecuted by the brotherhood from time
to time for tho furtherance of the In
terests of the northwest. Strangers
to the country are entertained at tho
lodges of the organization, and If they
nre prospectors they are supplied with
the most reliable information at hand.
Tho main body of the organization
is located at Skagway, Alaska. There
are others at Dawson, Nome, Fair
banks, Cordoda nnd Seward. The
lodgehouse at Skagway is declared to
be one of the most distinctive build
ings of its kind in the world. Tho In
terior is decorated with trophies of the
nrctic regions, of every description.
The motto of tho organization Is
"No Boundary Line," and Its insignia

"Swimming pools," says H. F. J. Por
ter, dlscubsing the matter in a recent
issue of the Survey, "are. little more
than cesspools." Tho public generally
regards them as refreshing, Invigorat
ing and beneficial, and few have ever
dreamed that they may be breeders of
disease. There aro hundreds of such
pools all over tho city. Recently in
the Interest of tho department of bac
teriology of tho University of Chicago,
K. N. Atkins mado a careful study of
five pools whoso water supply was
supposed to be clean. Investigation
proved that they caused allmentB of
eye, ear and throat and Intestinal dis
ease. Investigations in Hamburg and In
Purdue, Brown, Chicago and Yale unl
versltles showed that tho impurities
aro bacterial and chemical foreign
matter, and all detected tho presence
of danfic-rous dlseaso microbes. This
condition existed in places where tho
details of hygiene nnd sanitation nre
otherwise scrupulously looked after.
Examination of tho Hamburg poole
showed that water fresh from tho tap
contained 57 microbes a cubic Qentl
meter. After 74 persons had bathed In
the water thoro were 1,800 microbes
In the same quantity of water. When
494 persona had entered tho pool the
number had increased to 64,400, and
after 829 bathers had been in contact
with the water there were 1G4.000 ml
crobes present to tho cubic centl
The last figures are Interesting In
that they Bhow no proportionate In
crenso in the number of microbes, and
In that way illustrato the septic tank
theory; that Is, after a certain point
of development the septic condition of
water either kills tho microbes or
they devour each other when they
have become too numerous, thuB main
tainlng a maximum of impurity.
