Excerpt from A Year''s Progress in the Klondike

Two or more lines of telephone nnitc Dawson with tho nearer mining region, and a partial city service has also been cstahlishcd. The city remains as yet without an electric-light plant, but it is by no means unlikely that before the present season has passed the darkness of the winter night will bc lifted by the are light, and much of the oppressiveness of the closed season thereby removed. After two winters of experience, the Dawsonites continue to think lightly of the terrors of the cold, and to but few apparently is the extreme of temperature a deterrent to exercise. Sleighing continues to be a pastime, with the temperature marking 40° to 50° below zero, but only with this season does it enter into the category of a fashionable recreation. Hitherto dog-sled teams per formed the full service of winter travel, and divided with skating and ski -ing the winter exercise; but this year the snow cause ways will be lively with the jingling of cutter bells and the rapid pacing of the horse.
