irom Skaguay under date of Nov, 24th.
We copy from the Herald of the 39th :
A letter received yesterday by Mrs. C.
W. Watts from her husband at Juneau,
Alaska, states that he reached that place
safely and had made a trip to Skaguay,
100 miles distant, and had returned to
Juneau. The ice had so encroached up
on the northern waters that the vessel

Mr. Watts writes that he may return
home by Christmas, but will return in
February with the intention of going into
the mines. He says a rich Btrike has
been made only a few miles distant from
In his letter he says:
This forenoon 27 miners came in di
rect from Dawson City. They were 57
days coming out. They brought 100
pounds of gold dust and nuggets and ex
change, no one knows how much. But
one gentleman here saw as much as
$250,000. They ran out of sugar and rice
and once, reaching a place where some
was stored, they paid for each at the rate
of one dollar a tea cup. One of these
men was the noted “Swift Water Bill,”
the man who won much notoriety re
cently by playing so recklessly at faro. A
day or so before leaving there he lost
$2000 shooting crape. He would allow
no one there to wear diamonds, but
bought them all up. He is covered with
them—beauties, too. Just before leav

hours digging took out 512 ounces of gold
amounting to $8192. On the boat com

When wear begins to exceed repair in
your body you are going to fall sick. The
signs of it are loss of flesh, paleness,
weakness, nervousness, etc. The repair
needed is food. You think you eat
enough and vet you feel that you wear
out more tissue, energy, nerve-force,
than your food makes for you. The dif
ficulty is that you do not digest enough.
And this is so serious it is worth sitting
down seriously to think abo it. If you
can’t digest what you eat, take a few
doses of Shaker Digestive Cordial. The
effect of it will be to increase your flesh
and make you feel stronger. You won’t
fall sick. Proof that it is in control of
your repair apparatus. It is easy enough
to test this for yourself. Take a few bot
