John Warnken Is a bold mariner
and flshorinun who, during the past
seven months, has been engaged at a
fishing station in Alaska, hut is now on
the briny ocean an a coasting wauian.
There is a heavy burden on John's
heart and mind, and It will require a
great deal of patience before he re-
lieves himself of the weight. This
burden Is no less than a separation
from his laily love in far-off Alaska.
For two years past Warnken, or, as he
Is termed, “ Nickel-plated Johnny,”
has been hopelessly smitten with the
charms of the young daughter of an
old half-breed Aleut rejoicing tn the
name of Melekoff. Nightly ho would
venture on a frail toat across the
raging waters of the river to visit his
lady-love, but beyond the signs that tho
lovers are to greet their Inamoratas
with, neither he nor she wore able to
converse with ono another unless by
the aid of an interpreter.
Matters, however, culminated in a
proposal of marriage during August

a determination worthy of a bettor

Johnny and his fair Marcia bid adieu.
When the vessel returned to the fish

mariner stating that "as he could not
