The fortune hunter hwt none of the

he pays K more heed to the menace
f the arctic than lie did to the viela
itudes of the desert. He follow ench
tream as long a Its munis will show
rolor of gold, and the eals of his camp
fire are hardly dead lefore there is a
town site where he pitched his tent.
The way Is hard mi account of nature'
resistance to hi cncTixicbnieut, upon
her domain. Imt the result Is always

them for years, vainly seeking his for

enough money to pay his way home,
licfore the ship readied Seattle he was
robbed of the last dollar lie had In the
world. On the same Itout was a youn?
f'atifornlan who had tackled the frozen
North with less than $1im and had no
experience, who had $l-b),txt worth of
nuggets to show what his luck had
done for him. All sins fail in a dry
time, and no man can tell inwli about
the hiding place of gold.
In 1880 a French Canadian named
Joe Juneau wandered tip Silver How
basin, the beautiful canyon hack of
the town which bears his name. II.
panned the first gold from a field that
has enriched the world by many mil
lions, and which will continue to con
tribute to Its wealth for many years
to come. Juneau was one of those
Tearless characters who helped to con
Utter the wilderness. He was a path
anrier in the full sense of the word,
ret he died penniless. When the news
ramc to Joneau that the old man was
