No Food or Mail Could be
Handled Without
Without the dogs all traveling in
Alaska for seven or eight months of
the year, except on the government
railroad to Fairbanks and two or
s three other very short lines, would be
impossible and neither food nor maii
could be taken into the Interior of the
country. The territory is dependent
upon its dogs.
The rivers freeze early in October,
as n rule, and the ice does not break
until May. While many of the dog
trails follow the courses of the rivers.

Grandfather and the Children
Know How Good
Jersey Corn Flakes Are
THE little folks are excellent judges of good things.
Their taste is a natural one and not cultivated. That
is the reason they are so fond of crisp, brown Jersey
Corn Flakes.
And you can't fool grandfather. He chooses food which
is both appetizing and nourishing. He likes his dish heaped
high as do the other grownups of the family.
Jersey Corn Flakes retain their crisp- ip"
ness in milk and do not get soggy and "?
unappetizing. Our process of manufact- Zfiflßsjfc, >
uring develops the sweet, natural flavor of ?

The Original Thick Corn Flakes
cross country travel Is quite common
throughout the winter.
The common way of "mushing," or
traveling by dog sled, Is the single
file, seven animals usually being em
ployed. The head dog Is the leader and
Is trained to keep the animals strung
out so that they do not become en
tangled In their harness and traces
and so that they are all pulling in the
one direction. Tandem driving has be
come much more common than it was
during the early rush of goldseekers
to Alaska. This is done with either
five or seven dogs, the leader being In
advance by himself.
Fifty pounds per dog, or 350 pounds
a seven-day team. Is considered
by experienced Alaskan drivers as the
proper amount if one wishes to get
speed out of his dogs or is making a
long .iourney. Often the load is 100
pounds per dog and occasionally, tor
short journeys, 200 pounds.
The malamutc, the native Alaskan
Eskimo dog, and the "husky," ob
tained by interbreeding "outside"
strains with the "Siwash," the native
Indian dog. are the best sied animals
to be obtained.
Cross breeding has led to many
strains in dogs employed in Alaskan
travel, but none has been found to
surpass the malamute and the husKy,
mainly because their toes are close to
gether with no hair growing between
them thus preventing them from get
ting sere feet from the snow balling
up. The collie has been found to be
the most intelligent dog for a leader,
but the collie's desire to dp all the
work himself (",-hereas the leader
should do nothing but lead) causes
him to use up his strength. Crosses
Iwtth the setters and pointers stand
the cold and the strenuous work ex
cept that their toes are hairy and they
easily get sore feet.
The ordinary value of a dog in
Alaska is $25. In the time of a "stam
pede" of gold seekers this may jump
to SIOO and $l5O.
Dogs are employed by the Christian
missionaries in the Interior of Alaska
to visit, members of their scattered
flocks and to bring patients into their
hospitals. Along the Yukon, where the
Protestant Episcopal church is tn
charge of all protestant work among
both Indians and Eskimos, the dis
tances are great and the missions few
and these- dogs are found of inesti
mable value. More of them will be
used in the work of Christianizing the
natives as a result of the nation-wide
campaign of the Episcopal Church to
expand all its activities at home and
abroad, as more funds and mot®
workers will be made available for
Alaska. _____
Catholics Plan For
Second Annual Picnic
The annual Catholic picnic will be
held at Hershey Thursday. August 21,
it. was announced to-day. The pic
nic will be under the auspices of the
Harrlsburg Council Knights of Co
lumbus, and invitations will be is
sued to all Catholics of Central Penn
The first Catholic picnic was held
at Hershey in 1017, and the affair
proved so popular that it was decid
ed to make it. an annual event. How
ever, the necessities of war caused
the postponement of the picnic last
year. It is planned to make this one
of the most successful picnics of the
kind ever held* in this part of the
State, and a committee has been
working on the details for some time.
Among the attractions will be a
dress parade and drill of the Knights
of St. George Cadets of Harrisburg,
Steelton, Lancaster and Lebanon; a
baseball game, races and dancing.
The committee in charge of the af
fair includes the following: Joseph
P. Durborow, chairman; Milton J.
Yetter, E. B. McCulla, George Mor
rlssey, F. J. Yestadt and J. L. McCor
A good game of baseball is prom
ised for Saturday afternoon on the
West End ground at 5 o'clock be
tween the Commonwealth team of
West End League and the Harrisburg
Giants, colored champions of this
city. The Giants have not lost a
came thus far this season, and will
have their best pitcher, Smokey Joe
Jordon, in the box, who defeate_d the
strong Sheridan team of Lebanon
county on Sunday afternoon by the
score of 1 to 0. A large delegation
of colored rooters will accompany
the team, who will keep things lively
during the game.
Knights of Columbus
Leader Is Honored
"Vittiaw <J. MuttcgArv.
A singular honor was recently paid
to Chairman William J. Mulligan, of
the Knights of Columbus committee
on war activities, when two famous
schools, Fordham University, of Now
York, and Holy Cross College, of
Worcester, Mass., bestowed the de
gree of doctor of laws upon him in
recognition of his services in the
war work of the Knights of Colum
bus. Chairman Mulligan is now in
France supervising the final work
for the A. E. F. and intensifying K.
of C. activities for the Army of Oc
cupation. The degrees bestowed by
tho schools were in each case con
ferred in absentia.
