Sealskin boots (hair seal, not the
fur seal), either with the hair on or

sired, with walrus skin soles, worn
with an insole of dry grass, were the
first article of apparel adopted.
They are the most comfortable I have
ever worn. They are also the most
But ono soon forgets about the ap
pearance, and a person with a pair
of American made leather boots or
shoes looks as much out of place as
an Eskimo would on the streets of
Portland with his parka (coat), hood
and boots on.
It is too warm for us to' endure tlie
fur coats made of reindeer, seal,
squirrel, minkskiiis, etc., but most
of the party are provided with them,
Tho hoods are usually attached to
the coat and are thrown back in
warm weather, leaving the head ex
posed. Tho winter boots are made of rein
deer aud other warm skins, with tho
fur on, but are not worn in wet
weather. Tho hair of tho reindeer is
as soft as beaver, and a coat of its
material will keep out the cold more
effectually than 10 times its weight
In fact, ns I am told by residents,
one cannot wear enough woolens to
keep warm in winter, the weight be
uig too groat. Furs are also a neces
sity for bedding. Cor. Portland Ore
The Hublt of Migrating.
Tlie best authorities state that the
habit of migrating is duo to the fact
that at tho time of the gi"eat climatic
change whereby the northorn portion
of tho globe became tho frigid place
it is now tho birds inhabiting the ex
treme north were forced southward,
and, further, that in tlie change of
seasons, when in summer the north
furnishes them the conditions of life
they have gradually formed, tlie
habit of resorting thither. This ex
planation sounds plausible, but there
are some questions which it foils to
-La teat U. S. Gov't Report
answer. For instance, bow do' Hie
birds forecast a change of season so
that their flight southward la begun
in time to escape the storms of
winter I And by what messenger are
they informed in the spring that tha
time ha come when they can with
safety return to their northern breed
The latter question receives a hy
pothetical answer in the assertion
that, as most migratory birds breed
in tbe northern limit of their flight,
it Is the sexual instinct which sends
them north and the statement is
supported by the fact that the male
birds of some species usually precede
the females and as the sexual in
stinct is always stronger in the male
there seems some reason in this the
ory. But not all birds are migratory.

The writer once entered inte con

lum, at the request of the superin
tendent, who said he was a mono
maniac, and invited me to find out
if he could the particular point of
his insanity. "It is a rum Bunject to
go mad on, I must say," he added,
by way of helping me. I tried him
on various subjects without success;
in fact, he seemed better informed
than myself, and I waa turning to
go when he tapped me on the
shoulder and whispered in my ear:
"It's a long time coming, isn't it?"
"What 1st" I asked. ,

A sister is a sort of a guardian
angel in the home circle. Her pres

every brother she is light and life.
Her heart is tlie treasure house ol

In her be finds a ready companion.
Her sympathy is as open as day and
