From that moment on, even when she becomes the dance-hall favorite o�^ Alaska, known as "Carmen ot tho. Klondike," she believes that Stewart is a traitor to her lovo and does everything in her power to defeat hla alms and success. The scenic effects of the prodiic-tiou, both in the town ot Sks^wsy and in the snow-bound mouatalns that; surround it, are truly marvelous. The're is-not a moment in the entlris pi�iui'e that is not tense with suspense and replete with thrilling action. At the climax, there occurs the most ferocious, ragimg, hand-to-hand battl-a between two men which has even been reproduced on the screen.
