In the current number of the North

says the timber resources of that ter

countv land would yield. The writer
ou Alaska in the Review is evidently

For assured prosperity more is
needed than high real estate prices

sured prosperous growth.
Griffin & Reed have an immense
stock of books on hand and have more

books for 33 cents, and others in pro

Hostilities have begun be
tween the rival editors in Washington
county. Forbearance sometimes
ceases to be a virtue, and it U, often,
hard for a newspaper man to restrain
himself, but, after all, it is better all
around, better for the city, better for
the individual, better for the dignity
of the profession, to refrain from per
sonal or insulting rejoinder. Our
friend Jones and Flagg would do
better to make their papers vehicles
of pleasant news, mediums of aid for
the community than to wast time
and space and effort iu sayiug mean
tilings ulxmt each other. We
speak from experience, aud while in
variably emerging victorious, have
never yet got through with a personal
quarrel with another newspaper with
out a loss of self lespect that didn't
make up fur tlte questionable triumph.
Try out to get the best paper, pi
brethren, and let the other fellow do

A Heroine of the Seattle Fire.
Miss Lou Root, of Seattle, at
present visiting friends in this city,
displayed considerable pluck and
bravery coupled with presence of
mind on the occasion of the recent
great fire at Seattle.
Her father, Dr. Orrin Root, had an
office in the Yesler building. He
was absent from the city, and when
the fire was within a block of her fa
ther's office Miss Lou having secured
the sen-ices of a faithful expressman,
forced her way throught a seething
mass of terrified humanity, gained
access to her father's office, secured
her father's most valuable papers,
books, etc., and amid the roar of the
fast approaching flames, and the din
of houses being blown up with dyna
mite, surrounded by Hying cinders
and falling firebrands "and almost
borne from her feet by the rushing
crowd, she succeeded iu saving the
most of her father s property.
Such courage on the part of avouncr
giu, w mo imusL oi real uanger, is an
exploit worthy of mention, showing a
brave determination that inanv an
older person might well be proud of.
