Jamaica Native Back from Alaska
Adams Twitchell of Bethel, Alaska, is visiting David Eddy and calling on his many friends in town. Mr. Twitchell went to Alaska 15 years ago and has been very successful in the mining and trading business. He left his home in Bethel Nov. 19, 1912, and traveled 900 miles by dog team before taking the boat. On the way he visited Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, several places in Texas and then came to Orange, Mass., to visit his mother, Mrs. LeVerna Twitchell, who is 81 years old.
Mr. Twitchell has come to Jamaica to visit the place of his birth, which is the Adams Twitchell farm on Twitchell hill, now occupied, by Louis Robertson. Mr. Twitchell is a very interesting talker and thoroughly understands the country which he has been over. One of the narratives which he relates is of his digging for a well, when he went 114 feet and did not get through the frost, and gave it up as he did not care to go through to Europe. About May 1 he will return to his home in Bethel, where his family, a wife and seven children, are awaiting his return.
