Alaska: the Graat and Rich.
Alaska's extreate breadth bom
to vest to 2t9 miles in aa air lia.
Accordisc to Prof. Gayot, a recogalaed
aatltorttjr oa all geographic matters,'
tfce Islaad of Attn, in Alaska, is as far
west of Saa Francisco as the coast of
Maine is' east of that city; or, in other
words, San Francisco is the great
middle city between the extreme east
and west of the United States, says
Jay Monroe Latimer in Metropolitan
Magazine, a fact which is very diffi
cult for the eastern minds to grasp.
The breadth of Alaska from north to
south is 1,400 miles. Now about the
coast line! According to 'the United.
States coast survey the shore line of
Alaska, up and down the bays and
around the islands, measures 25,000
miles, or two and one-half times that
of the Atlantic and Pacific coast line
of the remaining portion of the United'
States. The coast of Alaska, if ex
tended in a straight line, would belt
the globe. Nearly 40 years ago, when
Secretaryof State Seward proposed
that the United States should pur
chase this vast tract of land, the peo
ple throughout the length and breadth
of the union shouted: "Folly! folly!
7,2O0,O for an iceberg!" Neverthe
less, Secretary Seward was wiser than
his day and generation. He intro
daced the bill before congress; and
there after stormy and lengthy de
bates he secured its passage, and the
United States received from Russia the
greatest of all her possessions.
Coal Industry in Montana. '
The coal mining industry in Mon
tana has, according to the records,
just entered the second quarter cen
tury of its history. So fjir as known,
the first coil produced in the state, or
the territory, as it was then, was
mined in 1S80, in which year the pro
duction amounted to 224 tons. It was
not until 1889, however," that the in
dustry assumed any importance, the
production increasing nearly 800 per
cent., from 41,467 short tons in 188 to
.63,301 short tons the following year.
During the next six years develop
ment advanced rapidly, until In 1895,
it exceeded 1,500.000 tons. Compara
lively little fluctuation was shown by
statistics of production from 1895 to
1906, but in 1906 considerable improve
nient was evident, the production hav
ing increased from 1,643,832 short
tons, valued at $2,823,350, in 1935, to
1.829,921 short tons, valued at $3,240.
359, in 1906, a gain of 186,089 tons, or
11.3 ier cent in quantity, and $417,
007, or 14.8 per cent, in value. The
number of men employed in the coal
mines of Montana increased from
2,181, in 1905 to 2,394 in 1906, the av
erage number of working days being
the same (243) in both years. The
average production per man in 1906
was 764.4 short tons, against 753.7 in
1905, and the average daily production
per man was 3.15 tons in 1906, against
::.10 tons in 1905. '
Problem of Air Navigation.
Apropos of the prevailing acute In
terest in aeronautics abroad, a foreign
critic intimates that the United States
Is far behind other countries, and
speaks rather slurringly of our alleged
nonprogressiveness. Hut there is no
occasion for getting "hot under the
collar" because of the insinuation,
soothingly remarks the Troy (N. Y.)
Times. That other countries are
greatly in the lead of the United
States in this matter really remains to
be proved. And even if the allegation
be true, what assurance does It fur
nish that this country will long re
main in the rear of the procession?
Americans have a knack of "catching
on" which serves them excellently
when necessary. The old world had' a
big lead on automobiles, for instance.
But it has not taken long for the
United States to work its way to first
place in motor-car production. It
would not be at all surprising if, after
everybody else has done his best and
fallen short of turning out a sucess
ful flying machine, some American
should come along and perfect an air
ship which would surpass all others.

father had done before him. He is a warm friend and admirer of President
Roosevelt, with whom he has many tastes in, common, and went with him
on his stump tour of the west in 1900. He was brigadier general of state
militia when the Spanish war broke out and resigned that office to become
lieutenant colonel and inspector general on the staff of Gen. Fitzhugh Lee.
He was offered a colonial commission and later 'the position of. first assistant
postmaster general, but declined both.

AVERTED GREAT STRIKE
David Lloyd-George, M. P., president of the,
British board of trade, is the hero of the hour in
England, having prevented a strike that would
have "tied up" all the railroads in Great Britain.
Lloyd-George and Richard Bell, also an M. P..
head of the Amalgamated Society of Railway
Servants, got together and convinced capital and
labor that arbitration was better than a fight
Lloyd-George is 44, the son of a school teach
er, educated at a national school in a Welsh town.
From the obscurity of a provincial law office
Lloyd-George has fought his way, unaided by
wealth or social prestige, to the front rank in
Lloyd-George is short of stature, has sharp
features, a fresh-colored complexion, small, stub
by, bristling mustache, keen, vigilant eyes and
somewhat rebellious dark brown hair brushed back, which makes his fore
head look bigger than it Is. When he first entered parliament, almost 17
years ago, he was unashamedly careless about his apparel, as one who gloried
in denying himself any adventitious aid from the tailor. But when a measure
of fame came to him and it came quickly he shaved off his mutton chops,
donned a frock coat and a silk hat and spruced himself up generally.
Lloyd-George, as president of the board of trade, is not a member of the
cabinet, but he is next thing to it. He has charge of all matters relating
to industries and navigation, except such as come under the jurisdiction of
the admiralty board; he makes regulations for the welfare and protection
of emigrants, for the prevention of accidents on railways and in factories;
for the protection of women and children; investigates the cause of wrecks
and punishes the responsible persons, and has general jurisdiction over all
matters relating to trade and commerce. Where the board of trade has not
the right to make regulations itself it is the adviser of the government, and
its advice is seldom ignored.

the women and children in his district for an outing, and the little ones would
talk about it for months. He would address every man he met by his
Christian name and ask after his wife. Every woman he would ask about
her children. He had no children of his own, so he adopted all the children

the hollow of his hand, Foley beat him handsomely and has been leader'
ever since. He has always avoided office-seeking, for he recognized the
public prejudice against saloon-keepers in politics, and one term as councillor
and one as alderman made up his public career. He was forced by his friends
into the fight for sheriff, and with his recent success he is likely to be leader
of Tammany before many years.

But from the emperor down to the smallest official clothed with a little
brief authority, none are immune from his merciless onslaughts.
In 20 years Harden, the firebrand, has become a power for the better

contributor to the local press. His vitriolic articles were often rejected and
he determined to start a pafecr of his own. Die Zukunft (The Future) was

An unerring memory for faces and names and
a sunny smile were his whole stock in trade, but
he soon proved himself a man to be reckoned
with. He made money in the saloon business.
He was never slow about dipping into his roll
to help a family in distress, and he would peel

This affair is seasonable right now,
and a mother I know is to give one for
her 16-year-old daughter. The rooms
are to be gorgeous with tissue-paper
pumpkins and vines, which will trail
from grills, staircase, pictures and

about the rooms wiil make admirable
seats, while one immense pumpkin
will occupy a prominent place bearing
the placard, "Guess how many seet'aj."

The bonbons are to be a novelty in
the way of pumpkin chips, which are

The public, taste has during the past few years become more educated as to
house furnishing;' still to the uninitiated there are many pitfalls in selecting
furniture and furnishings. Never buy any of the cheap machine carved, over
decorated and upholstered furniture that is still unfortunately so much seen.
The present fashion is to select each article individually, although In
harmony of course with the other pieces and furnishings. The three pieces
of living-room furniture sketched illustrate this idea each piece being on the
same general design and in the same wood (mahogany), but each being cov
ered with a different material. An excellent effect is insured by following a
certain color scheme, planned to suit the walls and woodwork of the room.
Shades of green, reds and soft yellows are charming for a living-room, and
great vsriety may be gained by the use of different fabrics for chair coverings
and hangings, all oa these tones of color. The larger pieces, such as lounges
or divans, are best in plain velour or rep, green being especially recommended.
Color can here be introduced by the use of gayly covered pillows. The chairs
may be in brocade, plain or figured Jn flower bouquet or other graceful de
signs, and the two tone striped velours, upholstery taffetas and brocades are
also very decorative.
