GET ACQUAINTED WITH
YOUR NEIGHBOR PARTY
A neighborhood soelnl was held at
Highland Home, the resident' of Mr.
and Mrs. T. J. Cunning last Friday
night for the purpose of meeting the
neighbors and getting letter ac
quainted. A splendid entertainment
was given that was a surprise to all
on account of Its excellence.
Mr. Cunning stated the object of
the meeting was to form a "Get Ac
quainted with your Neighbor Trust,"
as we bad uot met them, for during
the summer and fall we had Ieen
work-bound, and during November
rain-bound, and since then snow
bound, until we were in danger of
being hide-bound, and that formal
ity would cut no Ice, but each one
must thaw out and do something to
relieve the strain. That started Mrs.
Wilbur, who led at the piano with
"Marching Through Georgia" and
"Rally Round the Flag," In which
all jofued. Mrs. Edglngton read a
humorous account of the training of
the Ruggles' nine kids to attend a
high life party. We all wanted more
of It but Mrs. Edgiugton was tired
after such strenuous coaching. Mr.
Newman and Mr. Cronkey, with vio
lin and cornet and Miss Harbison
as accompanist, gave a rare treat in
instrumental music that was round
ly encored and another selection
rendered equally pleasing. Little
Miss Margie Campbell recited a re
vised version of the George Wash
ington cherry tree Incident that was
so well done that we all lelicved the
new story. Mr. Harbison then gave
a thrilling account of the Halley
Comet through Inspiration of the
Lime Kiln Club that was side shak
ing. Mr. Wilbur, with Mrs. Wilbur
at the piano, sang "Bury me In the
Deep Sea," but all refused as they
wanted him to slug more and he
responded by singing a Gipsy song.
Dr. and Mrs. Edglngton, Grace and
Beth, as usual captured our hearts
by singing "Hear Dem Bells" and
"Kitty Clyde." Agnes and Edwin
Markham and Francis Llttlefleld
tried ty sing nn Indian song but Ed
win took the war patli and queered
the show. Refreshments were then
served and as the hour was late,
though much of the program was
omitted the party adjourned to meet
again and keep the ball rolling.
The next meeting of the trust Is
Friday night at Mr. B. F. Shoe
TONS OF ALASKA COPPER.
Report of Geologist Brooke Shows
Enormous Yield This Year.
"The season of mining in Alaska has
been a prosperous one," says Alfred
U. Brooks, geologist in charge of the
Alaska work of the United States geo
logical surrey, who has Just returned
to Washiutftou from his annual "swing
around the circle" In the far north
west "While dry weather and other
unfavorable conditions have curtailed
the placer gold production at Nome,
most of the other camps have either
maintained or increased their output.
"Figures of gold output are not yet
available, hut It seems probable that
the production for 1900 will be be
tween nineteen and twenty million
dollars. The low price of copper has
not encouraged mining of that metal
but about half a dozen properties ship
ped ore during 1909. It appears proba
ble that the Alaska copper output for
the year will exceed 4.000.000 pounds."
After a short Illness the three-year
old son of L. Stuck died Monday.
One Light In Two Thousand Miles.
For the first time the great southern
coast of Alaska, more than 2,000 miles
long, has this winter a lighthouse.
Though one of the most dangerous and
stormy coasts In the world and diffi
cult of navigation, even in summer,
this area has been wholly neglected
until now. The first light is on Cape
Illncbitibrook. at one of the entrances
to Frinee William sound. There are
many other places where lights and
fog signals are almost as urgently
needed, uotably Cape St. Ellas, where
steamers are often held up for days
because of fogs and a long, hidden
reef. Other lights are, however, to be
added next year.
