March 21, 1922.
My dear Home Folk:
This March weather has been fine
and I am again surprised. True, the
temperature has been much lower
than one expected but that was for a
few days only and the remainder of
the time it has all been very wonder-
ful. Floods of sunshine, that reflect
ed on the white earth, make every-
thing especially clear. We, and most
of the natives, are wearing dark glass-
es all of the time.
I.ast week I went to see a sick child
and had a drive of forty miles. It
was a delightful trip, not at all cold
and, in the sun, it was indeed very
warm. Would that you could have
seen my face. I was burned a dark,
purplish red. My cap and, glasses
protected the upper part of my face
but my nose and lower face caught it
all. Today, the wind has howled and
roared like a March lion but April will
soon be here. The days are now so
long that the sun comes up about five-
fifty and doesn’t go down until seven-
thirty and then there is a long twi-
light. The people here say that the
summer nights will be only three
hours long but that all the joy will be
taken from life by the thousands of
mosquitoes that infest this part of
Alaska. But I started to tell you
about the native dance and think I
would better go on with that and let
the mosquitoes wait as I'll probably
rave enough about them when they
get here.
I got as far as a native man step-
ping forward with a feather fan in
each hand and, having gotten a box
to sit on, the nasal wailing and beat-
ing of the drums started. At either
side, a head man of the village sat,
who then started to tell him what to
do as the wailing and drumming went
on. The dancer by gestures told how
the bird was snared, the fish caught,
the larger animals snared or shot, the
boat built or the sled made. He had
been dancing, for a time, alone when
two women got up and, going toward
the front, took their places on either
side of him and began a similar per-
formance except that they stood and
he sat. They showed how the clothes
are washed, the shoes made, ete.
These then retired and others took
their places. It lasted until nearly
two a. m., but I was too bored and too
cold to tarry long so, after seeing the
first lot, went home. Had the crowd
not been so close—all the people here
have “cooties”—and the seats more
comfortable I should have enjoyed
staying and watching it to a finish.
The dance over here, two other small
villages nearby sent invitations and
off went every one in this village who
could find a dog that could go. Some-
times I think they become possessed.
A week ago things quieted down and
I was beginning to think it might
prove too quiet, when suddenly, at ten-
thirty, a half-native boy arrived with
a note from his father, a white man
and a mail carrier, forty miles down
the river, saying his daughter was
very ill and would I come and see her.
I left early in the morning, traveled
for six hours, remained there for a
day and returned on Sunday. The
wind was full of snow and drifts from
the night before were piled so high
that the dogs had hard work to pull
us through; although the boy, John
Samuelson by name, assured me that
his nine dogs were quite able to pull
me and others too, if necessary.
I began this letter the day after I
came steadily worse and died the last
day I was there. I wish you could
see the very beautiful piece of carved
ivory her father gave me when I
wouldn’t accept compensation for my
services. I felt much distressed about
my inability to help but she is only
the second death I have had since my
arrival here.
Did I say one might be bored here?
Well, the natives are never bored!
They are now all agog about the
spring hunt and, it is said, by the
middle of next month there will be,
perhaps, two or three old people in the
village as the rest will have gone to
the hills for the hunt. They will come
back in time for the “salmon run”
after the river opens up. Man and
dog eat dried fish and, just now, it is
rabbit drives; each day many natives
come in with ten or eleven rabbits.
Mr. Bird, the man at this house,
brought in five today so we will eat
rabbit next week.
The weather is so mild I am sitting
with the window wide open and have
on a thin kimono although there are
three or four inches of snow in the
open and a great deal amongst the
willows that surround this place.
While we were eating lunch yes-
terday, the little girl convalescing
here called and pointed outside where,
thirty feet away. six sled-reindeer
were going past. Their sleds were
loaded with truck and they were
walking single-file along the path.
One animal got its horns caught in
the willows and did a lot of twisting
before getting loose.
The white women are going about
on skiis and one sees snow-shoes
wherever you look. Every man, wom-
and and child wears fur boots, fur
parka or coat, fur hood and, tonight,
when a native boy came in dressed in
an entire suit of clothes with a cap on
his head, it was a surprising sight.
Yet the cold has not been as severe as
I have felt many times in New York
where I should have laughed had any-
one suggested a fur coat or cap, not
to mention fur shoes. There I wore
gloves; here I wear fur mittens lined
with fur and, of course, never feel
April 4th—April, as is usual, is
trying to outdo Marck in nasty weath-
er. During the past four days there
has not been a bit of sunshine but lots
of wind, showers and flurries of snow
and the mud is knee deep. The vil-
lage is deserted as all, except a few
women and little children, have gone
to the hills to hunt squirrels and oth-
er game. The two oldest residents of
the village, one seventy and one sixty
years of age, died last week; one of
tuberculosis, the other—a woman, I
have thought starved herself to death.
The snow on the river ice has thaw-
ed and inches of water stand over it,
necessitating boots.
A letter from home written on New
Year’s day came in the last mail. You
speak of the cold. I suppose we have
colder weather here but I have not
felt it more than in New York last
winter. - As to the men who are think-
ing of coming to Alaska—I shall not
strain my eyes watching for them
since I am in an out-of-the-way place,
hundreds of miles from the section of
Alaska they will visit.
I hope you are all as fine as I am
today. It is Sunday and downstairs
Mrs. Bird, a Christian Scientist, is
grinding out a hymn sung in their
church in Seattle. She brought with
her an hundred and twenty-five dol-
lar phonograph that has helped to en-
liven some dull minutes this winter.
If it were less expensive, I would buy
it to leave here when I go as I dislike
to think of the long weeks without
any instrument after she “goes out”
on the first boat in the spring—June
I am going to quit now although I
may add more later since the mail will
not go out before the thirteenth of

State College Hospital Fund Growing.
The potato growers’ hospital fund
for the erection of a greatly needed
building at The Pennsylvania State
College has been growing rapidly dur-
ing the past week. Announcement
this week disclosed the fact that grow-
ers in Lawrence, Jefferson, Elk and
Chester counties have actively joined,
and that Cumberland, Montgomery
and Berks are preparing to subscribe
generously to the movement.
The largest single contribution to
this project in Penn State’s $2,000,000
emergency building fund campaign
was announced as $1000, coming from
the Rev. Charles G. Jordan, of Volant,
Jefferson county representative in the
State Legislature. = An equal amount
has been raised by other potato men
in that county. One township in Elk
has subscribed $500.
In Chester county, the Webb broth-
ers, who live near West Chester, gave
the movement their approval with a
$500 subscription. Interest there is
very great and arrangements are be-
ing made for a great field meeting on
August 3rd, to be attended by all po-
tato men of the county. Montgomery
county will probably take part in the
Chester field day. Berks and Cum-
berland counties are actively working
and are expected to join the list of
completed districts within a few days
with large subscriptions.
——The new double decker porch
built to the Elks home on High street
is now practically completed and
changes the entire appearance of the
building, giving it more the appear-
ance of a club house than a private
dwelling. The porch is large, airy
and cool looking and will no doubt af-
ford many hours of pleasure to the

Flashlights of the General Federation
of Women’s Clubs.
The sixteenth biennial convention of
the Federation of Women’s clubs was
held at Chautauqua June 21-29. The
proceedings were extremely interest-
ing and worthy of the following com-
Two objects of the Federation are
viz: To impress upon women the im-
portance of concerted action, and to
show them their possibilities as a
working power. The prime purpose
of the program is to impress upon
united women the great need at this
time for concentrated effort in accom-
plishing whatever important work
stands out waiting for the women of
the world to - :
Women as a working power is the
keynote of the convention.
The Federation has grown by leaps
and bounds because “service” is the
secret of the movement.

An impressive appeal was for the |
members to take solemn vow to try |
through study, thought and prayer to |
make it possible that war will never
again come to the world.
Purpose is a power of elimination. |
Every life must have a pruning knife
applied to it if it is to accomplish
great things. A great purpose is a
mose effective pruning knife.
In order that the organization may
be wholly non-partisan and non-sec-
tarian, a recommendation was offered
to have the state federations demand
the same tests for eligibility as the
general federation.
The board of directors defeated a
resolution providing that an educa-
tional campaign on birth control be
conducted, but passed another reso-
lution referring it to the Department
of Public Welfare.
The convention will virtually give
backing to the American Legion—not
politically, but to give all assistance
possible to bettering conditions for
former soldiers and for promoting
better government.
Strong emphasis will be made to es-
tablish a United States Secretary of
Education as a member of the cabi-
net to more adequately carry forth
national education; to secure citizen-
ship to the American Indians; to war
on “jazz” music and make good mu-

DINGES.—Mrs. Mary L. Dinges,
widow of Jacob Dinges, passed away
at 7:25 o'clock yesterday morning at
the home of her son, Harry M. Dinges,
at Centre Hall. She was one of the
oldest, if not the oldest, women of
Pennsvalley and had enjoyed remark-
ably good health up until several
weeks ago when she suffered a stroke
of paralysis. A second stroke last
Thursday rendered her condition so
critical that her children were sum-
moned to her bedside and remained
with her to the end.
Mrs. Dinges was a daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Paul Wolf and was born
in Brush valley, about two miles
east of Rebersburg, on August
advanced age of 92 years, 10
months and 4 days. About six-
ty-three years ago she was married
to Jacob Dinges and they built a home
and located at what is now Centre
Hall. At that time there were only
two buildings in the place. While Mr.
Dinges died many years ago Mrs.
Dinges lived in the home to which she
was taken as a bride up until the
spring of 1921, and had since been
i making her home with her children.
She went to Centre Hzll just about a
month ago from Mifflinburg intending
to spend a part of the summer there.
| She was a life-long member of the .
| Evangelical church and a good chris- |
i tian woman.
i Surviving her are three children,

He was taken back to Blair county on

by answering an advertisement of
Frank Hersh for a camp cook. He
proved a failure at the job and anoth-
