' . YOU SHOULD INSURE .
THE MASSACHUSETTS MUTUAL LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY
On account of the benefits of the famous non-forfeituro law of
Massachusetts vvliicb appliesor.lv to companies chartered by thatstate. .
This law secures to the policy holder a definite contract of insurance.
' In case of the non-payment of any premium after the second year,
whether such lapse of paymenc be intentional or accidental, the
status of the insured with the company is fixed by this law without
i action or negotiation, hence forgetfulness will not result in the total
loss of one's policy and the accumulations tliereon.
In many instances the paid up value allowed by this law is more
than the net cash paid for premiums, thus securing to the policy
holder the ultimate return of every dollar paid for his insurance.
This law removes the objection so often raised anainst life insur
ance, that ''once in it is hard to get out," lis a withdrawal under its
provisions does not necessitate a- sacrifice of one's whole interest
in his policy.

Clippings From Late Papers
Printed in the Klondike '
Louis Nobel, who recently returned
from Dawson City, left copies of the
three papers now published there. The
pioneer venture of journalism in the
Klondike metropolis is The Klonkike
Nugget. It is a semi-weekly 5-column
folio, ably edited and neatly printed.
The subscription price is $24 per annum
in advance, and single copies are 50
cents. The following snap shots are ta
ken from the random column:
At one dollar per hour per man, how
much does it cost Dawson in one week
to get her own mail? .

blankets, but never before now, of
The next oldest paper published at
Dawson is The Yukon Midnight Sun, a
weekly paper at $15 per year, and single
copies 50 cents. 'In addition to the us
ual business advertisements and an
nouncements is a church directory, giv-
ng times and places of meeting of the
Klondike Presbyterian, Episcopal and
Catholic churches, also the Christian
Endeavor Society. -
This paper states that a move is being
made to form a Masonic lodge.

tiser. It is decidedly English all over,
and is issued every Saturday, the first
number having been printed Sept.' 20th.
It is also issued at cut-rate prices, the

Interesting Letter From Frank
Welch. Gold Prospects Good.
To tho Editor of the Courier-Herald:
Dawson City, N. W. T., Sep. 27
Thinking a few lines from here would
be interesting to your readers, I will
endeavor to fulfill my promise to you,
and give something about the, advan
tages of the country, I have just re
turned from a trip over the different
creeks, and most of them look very flat
tering. It is the general opinion that
there will be more gold taken out of
Dominion, Sulphur, Hunker and Quartz
creeks this year, than' there was from
Bonanza and Eldorado last year. Bench
properties are turning out quite good,
and in some instances they are - marvel
ously rich, but like the creeks, tho
blanks are more common than the pri
zes. There are some properties on the
Canada side of Forty Mile that will be
developed this winter, and those who
seem to be in a position to know, think
they will turn out remarkably well.
This side of the creek has never been
prospected, as the old-timers confined
themselves to the American side. There
has been considerable dissatisfaction in
tho ruunner of recording and tho way
the postofiicos have been run, but there
is a chango ia the p.dministration and
we look for fair play and no favor under
the rulo of Dr. Oglesby. Imagine a
man standing in line from 3 a. rn, to 4
p. m. in front of the postoftlce, and sev'
ernl days before they could enter the
recorder's office. This will give yon an
idea of how things have been run hero.
I would advise anyone writing to friends
here to have their letters registered, as
in this way they will reach their desti
nation without so much red tape. I
have met quite a number of people from
Oregon City and vicinity. They all
seem to be on the hustle, and no doubt
some of them will meet with merited
success. Messrs. Davis, Harris and
Bunnell, of Beaver Creek, are engaged
in building their winter quarters. Ira
Huffman and the Thome boys will run
a lay on Bonanza. Their outlook is
very favorable for a good clean up in
the spring. I have not heard from
Faircloughs and Shelley lately. Mr.
White seems to be contented with the
outlook, as do the remainder of the Or
egon City people here, ;
The days are shortening, frosts havo
appeared and it is expected that the
river will close by the last of the month.
By that time tho ground will be suffi
ciently frozen 'to put down shafts, and
prospecting on the creeks will begin in
The will likely be some good grub
stakes made. Provisions are plentiful.
As many as four boats have arrived from
H. Michaels in one day, and there is
not room in the warehouses for the supplies.
There has been a good deal of fever
in Dawson, but on the creek everyone
seems to be in good health. As for my
self, I expect to run three lays, one on
Sulphur, one on Eldorado and one on
Bonanza. Alex. McDonald has gone to
London in the interest of his properties.
Some of his claims are the best on the
creeks It is reported that be took
1800 pounds of gold nuggets with him,
but to see him here, ono would not
think that he owned a cabin ; he is now
king of tho Klondike, now that "Swift
water" Bill Gates has taken a back
seat since his return from California
There is some talk of incorporating
tho city of Dawson, and it would be a
great thing in a sanitary way. There
are four theatres here and dance halls
by tho score. Gambling halls are too
numerous to mention, and the streets
are so crowded in the evening, that it is
al nost impossible to get through. There
are restaurants of all grades, and one
can gut a good meal from $1 to $2 i cof
fee houses charge 50 cents for coffeo and
cake, or pie or bread and butter. 'Po
tatoes took, a drop last week from $1 to
Royal makes the food pure,
wholesome and delicious.

You Should Insist on Ycur Dealers Guaranteeing
Huntley Always B
The cheapest Tooth Brush is a guaranteed one. When a
maker quarantees things it is usually because they don'J need a
enarantee. If anv of our 2oa Jirmhes shed a bristle in two
months we'll give you one for it. We mean It. .We also have
oiht rs from 5c up
Don't last forever We have Eevernl times found it necessary to
replace a leaky hot water bottle or a fountain syringe, not ex
actly because we were to blame, but through a defeat in work
manship. But we always replace any thing of the kind if you
. Give us a chance '.
We have always guaranteed ever hair brush that sold for
50 cents or over. Never had but one brush come back and that
was a $2 00 on. We were (strange as it mayseem) as glad to
have a chance to replace it as our customer ,wns to have it
We don't tell our customer one thing and mean another, bo
it is uood to have a chance once in a while to prove we mean
what we say, even if it does cost scmething.
This week we have a shipment of several hundred brushes
coining direct from the manufacturer, which we bought at a close
price for cash, and our customers will got tho benefit.
