EE who travels to the far
%*%X northern shores of Alaska,
H near Point Barrow, finds
x there a type of Eskimo dog
which seems to be a direct
descendant of the gray
wolf, and is singularly like its progzen-
ftor in appearance. The purest of the
awolf breed is now rare in other parts
of Alaska, for the great rush of civil-
fzed men to the gold fields has brought
With it dogs of all varieties. The dogs
of the pure type are great, gaunt fel-
fows, with shaggy hair that is almost
black in many instances, and grows
fongest about the shoulders, giving
them a sort of ruff that adds to the
fierceness of their appearance.: They
mever bark, their cry being a mournful
howl, quite like that of the wolf.
They are inured to desperate hard-
#hips, and lie out in the snow and the
lArctic night unprotected, although the
ghermometer may be fifty below zero,
and it seems as if all living things ex-
posed to the sweep of the Arctic gale
must perish.
Perhaps it is the instinct of wolf-pack
foyalty surviving, but whatever it is,
dogs of the wolf breed are singularly
faithful to those who bring them up.
Hence, buying dogs of the natives in
Arctic Alaska is rarely successful. If
you manage to keep the dog he is likely
ko pine away. It is rarely that you
can keep him. A pup taken from its
ww Bitive owners when but a few weeks
old Awill remember them, and follow
them years after, if not tied up, and it
fs utterly useless to try to keep a
grown dog when purchased.
A notable instance of this is the story
pf Kingmuk, The Faithful, who came
with other dogs and a party of Es-
kimos from far inland to visit the
whaling station at Point Barrow.
Mr. Siem, who was a new man in
charge of the station, and, although a
good whaleman, little skilled in shore
jife, bought many of these dogs, and
tied them up with ordinary dog chains,
. Early the next morning the natives
started for the interior, and when Siem
svent out to inspect his purchase, he
found every chain but one snapped.
Ant ordinary dog chain is of little use
with one of these dogs; they had sim-
ply followed their masters.
All but one had gone, and he had
been fastened with an extra heavy
chain. That was Kingmuk, who came
to be surnamed The Faithful. He was
an old dog then, and his strength had
not been equal to the chain,
Some weeks later Kingmuk was re-
. fedsed. His owners were now hun-
_ dreds of miles away, and the blowing
snow had long obliterated their trail,
‘for the terrible Arctic winter had al-
ready set in, Yet this had no terrors
for Kingmuk, and he set forth imme-
diately to find his friends.
All winter he trotted over the frozen
wastes, far and mear, in search of
them. He avoided the whaling station
and the mativevillages alike, and sought
neither food nor shelter from mankind.
How he lived only the wolf wisdom of
centuries could fathom, but he did live
somehow, and reports of him came in
occasionally from up and down the
coast and far into the interior, some-
‘kimes.a hundred and fifty miles away.
He was recognized by his very
shaggy hair and the remnants of a
deerskin sled harness, which still hung
on him. He never was seen to lope or
walk, but kept up a steady dog-trot,
now circling the country in wide
sweeps, now quartering it like a hunt-
ing dog in search of game, always
seeking, but never approachable.
In the rarefied atmosphere he was
sometimes taken for a deer, and
stalked by the hardy Eskimo hunts-
gen, who brave the severest Arctic
fvinter in search of game. At night
fie was shot at for a wolf—by mistake,
for no hunter would wittingly have
farmed him—yet lhe always escaped
fnjury, and came to be looked upon
by the natives with a touch of super-
setition as a mysterion. wandering

people—the ghost folk of the winter
So the winter passed, the sun came

came the interior natives once more to
visit and trade, Kingrouk met them a
hundred miles out, and followed them
to the station, although their reception
of him was hardly overcordial, A dog
more or less mattered little to them,
and Kingmuk was gaunt and weak
from his winter's chase, and aging
He found an old, or made a new,
dog friend, a dog older than he, and
when the natives left for the interior
once more the two went with them.
What happened to the two during the
winter no one knows, but in the spring
Kingmuk returned to the station, bring-
ing his friend with him. But it was
too late to help the older dog. He could
neither eat nor drink, and soon died.
The thaw had hardly begun, and his
body was dragged out on the solid ice
of the lagoon and left there, Kingmuk
followed as chief mourner, and lay
down by his dead comrade in mute
sympathy and sorrow.
Henceforth his home was by the
side of his comrade, and except when
he came to the station—once a day—for
food, he remained there. When the
lagoon began to thaw, Kingmuk went
to the nearest bank to lie; but seeing
the water rising, and that his friend
did not follow, he went out on the
flooded ice and dragged him ashore,
where he again took up his post beside
Through the brief summer Kingmuk
thus remained, undisturbed, respected
by all in his devotion, and no attempt
was made to separate them until the
winter's snows came again, Kingmuk
was rapidly growing weaker, and it
was seen that he could not long with
stand the severe weather. Every in.
ducement save force was offered to get
him to come to the station to be cared
for, but Kingmuk remained faithful
to his mourning, and the first blizzard
of the winter covered the two, still ly.
ing side by side.—Youth’s Companion.
To Detect Cotten Thread in Cloth.
The difference between wool and
cotton is very great, and in the case
of separate threads of each is plainiy
apparent, yet when these same threads
are closely interwoven some good
judges are mistaken and buy mixed
cotton and wool goods, firmly con-
vinced that there is not a thread of
cotton in the cloth. It is the custom
of all mills’ that manufacture cotton
and wool mixtures to run the cotton
crosswise in the looms, thus leaving
the wool to run lengthwise. This is
done for two purposes: First, to im-
part the glossy appearance which the
longer stretch of wool thread gives
when run in the length of the goods,
and secondly, because the proportion
of cotton is necessarily less and there-
fore more difficult to detect. The cot-
ton thread. of course, is much smaller,
and very difficult to distinguish in
closely woven fabric. There is one in-
fallible test, however.
Take a bolt of goods at the cut end
and examine closely the crosswise
thread, slowly pulling it apart. If it
breaks almost evenly and comes apart
slowly then one is safe in judging it
to be all wool. If, on the contrary, it
breaks in short, uneven strands and
falls apart easily, refuse to accept the
goods, for it is undeniably cotton, and
will not give satisfaction. It were far
better to get an all cotton or all wool.

Versed in Pig Language,
We find in an exchange the follow.
ing account of an advertisement in an
English paper. We do not think that
there will be a rush of our farm labor-
ers to fill this vacancy.
Wages of farm laborers in England
are enticing. An advertiser in the
Wimbleton, England, Gazette, wants
“a lad about twenty; must be a
churchman of good education, who can
drive a horse and cart, assist in the
stable and garden (melons and cucum-
bers), milk cows and understand the
pigs; must be accustomed to wait at
table, and of gentlemanly appearance;
early riser and tectotaler; good refer
ences required.” 'The wages of this
farm hand of diversified accomplish
ments are to be $50 a year, but he
must lodge out and furnish his own
meals, except dinner.

Again, and finally swung the horizon in

JSTON spends many thou:
sand dollars a year in mak-
ing sure that everybody in
the city that buys anything
by weight or measure is
certain to get his money's
worth. All this is accomplished through
the office of the sealer of weights and
The title of this office is not a mis-
nomer., On the contrary, it expresses
with perfect accuracy the function ex-
ercised by th e official who bears the
name. He is literally a sealer of
weights and measures, and every
weight and every measure used by
anybody in the city to sell or buy goods
must. receive the seal of the official
before mentioned.
There ave many different kinds of
goods that are sold by merchants of
high and low degree in Boston by
weight or measure. The list of com-
modities is a long one, and includes a
great variety and diversity of mate:
rials, from peanuts to diamonds.
In the sale of these many and vari-
ous articles, different kinds of weights
and measures are employed. All these
weights and measures are adjusted to
the nicest accuracy by the officers of
the sealer.
The law on the subject says that the
sealer of weights and measures shall
annually give public notice to ali in-
habitants or persons having a usual
place of business who use scales,
weights or measures, for the purpose
of selling any goods, wares, merchan-
dise. or other commodities, or for pib-
lic weighing, to bring in their scales,
weights and measures to be adjusted
and sealed.
The same section also provides that
“in those cities and towns where a
salary is paid to the sealer of weights
and measures no fees shall be charged
for such services.
In compliance with the provisions of
the foregoing it is customary for the
sealer to notify annually, in May, all
such persons as are referred to by the
statutes, by publishing the required
notice in the daily papers, to bring to
the office their scales, weights and
measures, to be tested and sealed.
At any time after this notice the
sealer may go to the houses, stores and
shops of persons mentioned who have
neglected to comply with the notice,
and having entered, with the assent of
the occupants, shall adjust and seal
their scales, weights and measures, and
shall be entitled to compensation.
The list of persons whose weights
and measures come under the super-
vision of the city sealer includes all
merchants who sell any commodity,
like milk, which is sold at a fixed price
in bottled quantity.
Some of the great grocerymen of
Boston sell hundreds of bottles of milk,
for example.
Every bottle which is intended to be
used for milk must pass through the
hands of the sealer. Accordingly, there
are always hundreds and sometimes
thousands of these bottles of varying
capacity in the offices of the sealer in
the basement of the old Court House,
and there are always half a dozen men
busily engaged in testing the capacity
of the vessels and in stenciling on the
glass with a diamond marker the ap-
proval of the city sealer of the bottles
which are found to contain what they
are claimed to contain.
The sealer’s inspectors are not per-
mitted to examine one vessel in a case
and to approve of the whole case by the
sample examined. They must examine
each and every bottle, and they must
reject, moreover, not only the bottle
which contains less than it is claimed
to hold, but also the bottle which holds
more than its alleged capacity.
There are half pint, pint, quart, two
quart bottles and jars that are used to
hold milk. Nobody may sell any of
these bottled quantities of milk until
the vessel has been sealed by the city
sealer, who by his seal testifies that
the vessel holds all and only that for
which it is sold.
In the course of one year the sealer’s
office tests more than 120,000 wet
measures, including milk cans, and of
these measures nearly 6000 are found
incorrect and adjusted and about 4000
are found incorrect and condemned.
All inaccurate glass vessels are con-
demned. That is to say, they are sent
back to the factories, and it is pre-
sumed that they are destroyed.
The vessel which contains more than
it is alleged to hold is condemned for
more than one reason, but the sealer
says the chief reason 1s to protect the
seller against loss due to his own mis-
take. *
But this is only a small part of the
gealer’s work. Throughout the city
are many scales, of capacity ranging
from 5000 pounds to 150 tons. The in-
spector must visit these scales and test
them, and in the course of a year ahout
~00 ot such giant scales are tested.
The sealer charges a dollar for tests
like these, and for testing scales under
5000 pounds capacity lhe charges fifty
For testing various other weights and
measures the prices run as low as
three cents for butchers’ scales and
wet measures and yard sticks.
These charges are made only when
the inspector leaves the sealer’s office
to do the work. There is no charge at
the office.

tion of all kinds of false or *skin”
measures and weights.

All the bank scales of the city which

Whereas the sealer’s office in a year
axamines and tests hundreds of thou-
sands of weights and measures for the
purpose of preventing all kinds of
frauds and shams, the office is equipped
with facilities for other sorts of tests
that have nothing to do with the de-
tection of erimes.
It has. for example, some beautiful
and expensive balances that are used
in testing the weights that chemists
and other scientists habitually employ
in scientific investigation.
Among the troy balances are some
nsed by apothecaries which are sensi-
tive to one-quarter, one-sixteenth and
oven to the one-thousandth of a grain
The very daintiest thing in the office
ts a standard metric balance, with
aluminum beam and agate bearings,
which is sensitive to the one-twentieth
of a milligram, a quantity so small
that if it rested on the back of your
hand you couldn't perceive it by any
sense of weight or touch. This little
instrument cost $200, and another in-
strument of the same description, but
larger, cost $400.
There is an avoirdupois balance for
tasting fifty pound weights, which is
sensitive to a grain, and one platform
balance, with a capacity of 300 pounds,
which is sensitive to a quarter of an
There is a bank gold balance there
which will weigh $10,000 worth of gold
and record a difference in weight of a
quarter of a grain.
There are various boxes of complete
sets of ¢ metric and standard troy
weight. The gold weights are from
1-100th of a grain up to 3000 penny-
weights, and there is a set of diamond
weights which will weigh from the
one-sixty-fourth of a carat up to 300
These are the most curious and valu-
able of the weights, but there are any
number of other kinds of weights
which are cheaper and more common
as well as more generally serviceable.
There is another instrument in the
office of the city sealer which has been
ased by many thousands of citizens in
the last twenty years. It is the great
scale which will tell you your weight
with absolute correctness to a quarter
of a pound, and it has with it a measur.
ing rod which will tell you your height.

Her Mistake.
here is one young woman in this
city whose benevolent disposition re-
ceived a severe shock last Sunday
evening. She was at church, and sat
directly behind a tall, well-dressed
stranger with a ravelling hanging in
his collar.

whole-souled girls, who grow up to be
motherly old ladies, a friend of every

he to go to church with a ravelling
hanging down his back. So when the
audience rose for the first hymn she
concluded to pick it off.
Carefully raising her hand she gave
a little twitch, but it was longer than
she supposed, and a foot or more ap-
peared. Setting her teeth, she gave a
pull, and about a yard of the horrible
thread hung down his back. This was
getting embarrassing, but, determined,
