The old Baying, "Familiarity broods contempt," does not hold good with Alaska; on tho contrary, it begets a fondness which swells Into enthusi asm ns one fact after another is dis covered and demonstrated. In some way or other tho country has a draw ing and winning effect upon most per sons who have lived there, if only for i tnhort period. Some aro attracted by tho beauty and magnificence of tho scenery, nnd others llnd rest and re-turning-vigor In tho mildness and even ness of tho climate; some, again, at tracted by tho wonders of tho veget able and animal kingdoms, nnd others, tho majority perhaps, delvo into tho richness of tho mineral treasuries, writes John G. Drndy, ex-governor of Alaska in Independent. Tho adven turers into Ilrltlsh Columbia, tho Yu kon territory and Alaska aro a hardy and buoyant stock. Those who have gotten up our phys ical geographies were pumping from dry wells when they came to treat of the northwest coast of America. Much that was given was erroneous. For in stance, Mount St. Ellas In ono edition of tho Encyclopedia Drltannlca is spoken of as a burning volcnno. Many well educated people well along In middle life become Impatient when tho deficiency is revealed to them. It Is well that this is so, for by a reas onable amount of dlligenco they can make good tho loss and have much pleasuro In acquiring Information so inuch at variance with preconceived fXRr WRAtiGLt, ALACK 'A size, color and firmness.

The possibilities for stock raising and dairy farming nre almost beyond calculation. Sunlight nnd moisture sufficient for plant life aro unfailing. Tho limits of this nrtlclo will not al low even a brief discussion of other rich resources furs, copper, lead, sil ver, tin, gypsum, marble. Iron, coal, llsh nnd timber. Surely Alaska Is a goodly heritage, and we now hold In grateful memory William II. Seward. Charles Sumner, N. P. Banks, yea, Andrew Johnson, be cause what was called "folly" 1ms proved to bo wisdom. Tho present pop ulation is small, possibly 35,000 na tives and about tho same number of whites. The aborigines are a good stock, ami with fair treatment and uiicoiirnRoment will do their full share in labor and development. They aro doing It today In tho fisheries, tho log ging enmps nnd in tho mines. Wo can hardly contemplate tho history of our ownership of tho vast possession for tho past 41 years with prldo. Tho next need Is railway transports tlon. Tho whole southeast and south era coast has good harbors, which are accessible at any season, and for the most part rates aro reasonable. But S L "n,lt '?

Tho world needs butter and beef, coal and copper, and Ira roads aro a necessity in dealing wit" these things in Alaska. DIALOGUE ON SUMMER PORCH. "Wandering Willie" Stops for a Few Minutes to Correct Lady's Wrong Impression. "You ought to be ashamed of your self!" said the womnn who had been sweeping off tho front porch. Wandering Willlo took off his lint and made a low bow. "The Idea of your coming to re spectable people's houses in this nuinnor!" "I.ady," was (ho answer,"! wouldn't neior have called If I had thought that ilc people hero was anything but respectable." And again he bowed. "I don't want to have any words wllh you," she proceeded. "You get out! Move on!" "Where to. lady?" "Wherever you are going." "I ain't going nowheros." "You ought to be ashamed of your self."
