There Is no mora use for sleds and

are now over. Dawson City can be
reached from Philadelphia by rail and
by boat with the single rxoepUon of

ha recently been built up the White

It would take four and one-half days
to go to Seattle, a distance of over S.000

THE DOG KXPECTED IT.
New York Tribune. 1
A New York socMy dame who Is an
ardent upholder of the Society for the j
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals,;
owns a little fox terrier of which she ,
Is exceedingly fond. A man who had;
called on her the other day was ad-'
miring the dog and asked Its mlstr ssi
how the, with all her human theorlet, i
could have allowed the cruel dog fan
cier to cut off the dog's tall and cam
to the fashionable degree of brevity.
Th dame drew herself up and replied,
with tome degre of hauteur:
' My dear air, 8nap expected It.
Every thoroughbred fox terrier expects
to have his lt and tall hirtened."
And that humbled man went away
saying to himself. "That's the first I
ever thought of 'noble oblige' as ap
plying to Tox terriers."
