PREMIUM LIST OF CALIFORNIAN ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE



No. 503-A TRIP TO ALAS K A- Price, »i3o.oo

How many of our readers realize that a trip to Alaska in the summer is one of the
most invigorating and agreeable trips in the world? Most people consider Alaska as a
sort of big white elephant. It is big, certainly, being twelve times as large as the State
of New York, but instead of an elephant it is a beautiful land of the midnight sun, for
in summer the daylight never fades. Think of it! Always day. Always something
to look at when you are not asleep, and something well worth seeing too.

First, there is the sail on the Pacific, without a wave to disturb the equilibrium of
your stomach ; a sea whose color is a cross between turquoise and aqua marine. The air
will be bracing and' clear, and you will have an everlasting appetite, with plenty to feed it
upon. Aside from the bountiful steamer's stores there are the salmon and halibut, never
so good as when taken fresh from the clear waters and grilled and eaten without loss of
time. Then you will see no end of straits, channels and islands, great and small, and you
will pass through narrow seas bordered by lofty mountains, and there will be numberless
glaciers. These are the white elephants for you, so monstrous you will think of the glaciers
you have seen before as mere snow or ice balls. At Douglas Island, near Juneau, you will
see the largest quartz mill in the world, at the Treadwell mine. And you will see Indians —
the squaws are said to be unusually ugly, but you might think otherwise — and they will
offer you all kinds of knickknacks at a high price, but you are not obliged to buy, for you
can obtain whatever you fancy at stores in Sitka and Juneau.

So reader, if you want a trip to Alaska and back (from any part of the United
States), read our directions, get up your club for the Califoknian Illustrated Mag-
azine, and any time from May t<» September provide yourself with waterproof, umbrella,
warm shoes and woolen clothing, take your trip and come home again in the belief that
you have discovered the elixir of youth.

It takes about a mouth to go and return from San Francisco by the shortest route.

THE MU1R GLACIER

The steamers are commodious, and as comfortable as any in the world. The
passengers are all well cared for, their wants anticipated by the officers, who aside from
being unusually courteous, know every rock, and mountain and glacier and every inch of
the route by heart, explaining them all in the most graphic and interesting manner.
