A FLIGHTFOB LIFE
The Story of a Rescue Trip In the
Mountains of Alaska.
BRAVE MEN AND SPEEDY DOCS
An Act of Heroism That Saved a Wo
man and Her Sick Husband From
Death When Stranded on a Winter
Night Amid the Snow Clad Peaks.
The hardships to which iuiile are
exposed in tho far north give frequent
occasion for the display "of heroism.
In the pages of "Trailing and 'anip
Ing In Alaska" Mr. Addison M. Powell
tells of the rescue of a woman and her
husband who were stranded on the
mountains in an Alaskan w inter.
A dog team galloped up and st.rpped
in front of the only pretense of a hotel
in Valdez. The Bight was dark, as the
northern -winter nights always are
when the moon is not shining. The
dogs immediately lay down, almost ex
hausted 'front their long trip, and the
two men were soon surrounded by In
quiring friends. One of the two said:
"What do you think, fellows? We
passed a woman just this side of Saw
mill Camp. She was pulling a f-k-d. on
which was her sick husband. We re
monstrated against her crossing the
glacier, but she yo IJeel that they
might ns well die up there as any

to stop. Our dogs eonld pv.U only our
