PHONE 93 SEWARD, ALASKA , ———— BOXERS DRAW GOOD HOUSE Exhibition Suits the Crowd at Board of Trade Saloon The only drawback to the boxing ex- hibition at the Board of ITade Iasi night was that there was not enough tables to stand on. Some lloor space was unoccupied near the front door be- cause the unfortunates in the rear of the crowd could not persuade men on the tables to "Down in front." The "program" consisted of four three-round bouts. The participants, except one. were cockneys from "Mile Knd road" in the Whitechapel district of London, where people drop their H's and pick up anything else that is loose. The boys are all clever amateur boxers as such exhibitions are common in the district where they learned the t rade. The first bout was a. draw between Scotty Clark and Paddy Laurell. It: was an even thing between Scotland and Ireland. “The Cockney" made a stand-off with "Missouri Slim." the only American in the bunch. James Roche and Jim Allen furnished the most amusement,as they had tarried at the bar too long on their way to the ring. They went only two rounds but the bridle was thrown off, there was no limit but the ceiling, and they went their own gait. Allen received the decision. In the last George Shaw got the decision over Billy Smith in three rounds. To reward the pugs the hat was passed just before the last act and a handful of silver was collected. Jack Cronin was referee. I Beggar—Pardon, sir, but this nickel you gave me is lead V Benevolent Old Man—Why, so it is! Well, keep it, my man, as a reward for your honesty. Best of graniteware and tin cooking utensils at Richards'. , * ARE CALLED CAVE-DWELLERS Old-Fashioned Customs Still Prevail Under Peculiar Name at Washington. A few only of the old customs survive, says Ainslee’s Magazine. We still sit on the front steps when the weather per- mits. Our carriages are still drawn up in front of the markets on certain days of the week. Our girls still continue to think it is entirely proper for them to walk through the public streets and to the theater without head covering. We still persist in believing in the primitive character and potency of the picnic and other bucolic diversions. We still dine in the middle of the day on Sunday. After that you will not be surprised to hear that our new-fangled friends who prefer tea and bridge to poker and mint julep call these good peo- ple, derisively, “cave dwellers." “Cave dwellers," "troglodytes," or by whatever name this element in Washington so- ciety may be called by the ultra-fash- ionables, it cannot be denied that it furnishes an important support to the social framework. The fashionable element comes to-day and is gone to- morrow. The "cave dweller" remains. He is, naturally, an old resident of the place. Clemency of Empress. While the dowager empress of China was recently proceeding to the summer palace in her sedan chair she was thrown to the ground owing to the carriers stumbling. Though her majesty was not hurt, her things were scattered about the road. The guards were liable to the most severe punishment for their carelessness, but the empress, to their great joy, pardoned them on the spot. Much comment was caused among the foreigners on the empress' clemency. Shrewd Toada. Toads sit at night around the bases of electric light poles along the coun- try roads of England, waiting for the fall of the dead, injured and partly cooked moths which have alighted on the hot globes above.
