reaches every town in the United
States. It covera nearly a Quarter of
a million miles of railroad and does
business amounting to $128,000,000 a
year. There are six principal com

cent of the express business. They
are engaged in many other enterpris

Publio School Base Ball.
In a fast and well played game of
base ball last Saturday, the Inde
pendence high school team won the
county championship by defeating the
team from Falls City by a score of
7 to 3. Falls City started the fire
works by making two runs in their
half of the second Inning and Inde
dependence followed in their half
with one tally. In the fifth Falls Cit
again made the circuit of the bases
and then in their half of the same
inning Independence came back with
six runs. As the game started so
late it was decided to play only seven
innings. Falls City' could not again
get around the bases so the score
ended 7 to 3 in favor of Independ
ence. It" was a fast, clean and well
played g-ame and each man did his
part.. Errors were but few on either
Tlce, the Falls City pitcher did the
best work for the visitors, and while
there were no particular stars in the
Independence team each one did his
part. Seeley, the Independence right
fielder, made the sensational play of
the game by catching a ball while
falling and turning a somersault iack

LOOKING DOWN YUKON AVENUE.
One of the most traveled highways of the Alaska-Yukon-Paclflc Ex
position will be the street to which has been given the name of Yukon
Avenue. Yukon Avenue makes its way across the exposition grounde
from west to east, and the ends are represented by Klondike Circle nea
the entrance, and Nome Circle on which fronts the classic Forestry build
ing. It crosses the roaring Cascades on oriental Uriflge of handsome
. design, and from its central part the buildings of Hawaii and Alaska,
backed by the enormous federal structure, Bre directly to the north.
Just to the west of Klondike Circle the Pay 8tresk winds in a general
direction from north to south, and at the eastern end the land gives
way precipitously to the shores of Lake Washington. It Is on this beau
tiful shore of the lake the natural ampltheatre Is located, and nature has
to quaintly formed this delightful spot, that small effort has been re
quired of man to transform It into as perfect an exhibition place as Is
possible. Us curving, sloping sides complete a semt-clrcie, and from Its
tiers of towering seats 30,000 spectators may witness the entertainments
with no possibilities of occupying a single undesirable seat.
A wonderful variety of architectural display ,1s shown by the many
buildings through which Yukon Avenue passes, and during Its course the
visitor passes from man-made monuments through parts of magnificent
forests whose grandeur has never been marred by the destructive craft
of Mammon's disciples. From every side the line or horlxon Is defined

SCENE ON THE OOTOT HONOR, A.-Y.-P. EXPOSITION. SEATTLE.
In constructing its group of Ave buildings, the United States Govern
ment had regard for the type of architecture followed generally in the
buildings of the Exposition proper. The Exposition structures are in the
modern French renaissance and the Government in the modern Spanish.
The two styles tie in nicely together and make an harmonious whole. On
the right of the picture Is the Alaska building, one of the Government
group. In the center is the European Exhibits Palace. On the left is
a facade of the Palace of Agriculture. The last two named are in the
French renaissance and were completed before December 1, 1908. Tha
Alaska building was completed April 15.
