in tin- Township of Westminster,
Middlesex County, wtth ita northern
boundary on the River Thames, there
are many authentic stories ol the
pioneers of ', iu district which deserve
io bu told to succeeding generation
H only to inspire them with the same
feeling of brotherhood, heroic eooragj
and persoverahoo which distinguished
these early settlers, There huve* beeu
lliree st-parate surveys of the township, On the first and second cun
cessions, running parallel to the river,
the lota ure a mile aud a quarter iu
length. Tile second survey, wllicn
was made along the west -id.- of th.
township, ahii..m at right angles witli
the first, gave concessions two and a
hull mill's wide. This is kuown a*
the North Street survey, and the roml
which runs through it is purt ol tin*
old Talbot rood of Elgin County
Tne remainder ol the township waa
surveyed several years after the se
cond, and the concessions are live
sixths of a mile wide. Iu const-
quence ol this variety of surveys a
map of the township looks something;'
like a section ol a crazy patchwork
quilt.
Digman's Creek runs across the
towuahip from east to v.-.tt, crossing
aud reorossing some of the concessions nearly a dozen times, und close,
to this creek occurred one of tilt"
most pathetic incidents associated
with the early settlers of the town
ship. Here lived a family named
Crou-ie. about three-quarters of a
mile smith of the second concession
but at the time when they settled in
the locality there were no road-
simply old ludinn trails and the foot
paths mi !e by the incoming settlers

We will soon be celebrating iu Canada west the centenary of the landing
on the bunks of tho Red River ul the
tlrst of tin- Selkirk pioneers, says Our-
ahl Wade in The Globe.
The  portion  of  what  is known  as
the  Province  ol   Manitoba  was  lirst
settled by  Lord Selkirk iu IbTH.    In
I a country   where  historical   records
and memorials are all tou scarce, as
in tho west, whieh is practically de-
void of any marks ol appreciation of
those who did su much for Hub couutry, it is to b,> hoped that the coming
"Selkirk Cetiteuii.ul" will bu marked
by a luitubla memorial to the founder
j ul the "Ited Rlvoi Colony."    He was
' a pioneer Imperialist and one of the
I lirst advocates of ICmpirc-buildiug by
: colonization.
It was iu the autumn of HI- when
this kind-hearted Scotchman's first

colony. To-day beautifully sltuuted
i on the banks of the Red River above
lower Fort Carry, near St. Andrew's
Locks, and many miles below "Old
Fort Garry" (Winnipeg), stands the
oldest churcli in Canada west. It Is

especially to those who are descend-
1 ants of the settlers.   Beside the many
interesting "tablets" erected to the
memory of "Tha Pioneers ol Canada
West" which one sees on the walls uf
St. Andrews, not ine least interesting
is a beautiiul memorial Window over
the altar to the memory ol the "pioneer builder of churches in the west,"
the Rev, Archdeacon Cochrane, placed
there some thirty-two years ago.
St. Andrews Parish, which is so rich
iu history, has one historical advantage over Furl Garry in that it .-*,;,
retains its original name and identity,
while Fort Cany and other places are
lost in name to the people of to-day.
The old Church building und rectory
are iu a good state of preservation,
und the latter is occupied by toe
present  rector and his family.

of St. Andrews, the Rev. William
Cochrane, and his wife arrived at the
Settlement, and to Mr. Cochrane, afterwards created Archdeacon, is given
deservedly much of the creJit of laying
the foundation of the church uu the

A GREAT CHIRCHMAN.
Chancellor Burwash Is Young at
Sevonly-Two Ye rs of Age.
A splendid typo (of Canadian, a
great Christian geii letunii, a.,d a
churchman w^ ;<*, lull a-nuu will never
j be measured is Dr. Nathaniel Bur-
wash, president arid d i/iiicclior of Victoria CollegS. who cdebrctod bis aev-
enty-secoud birthday recently. Meu-
ll.n the name of Chaicelkr Burwash
to anyone who has et er cume iu cou-
tact with him ia an;/ way, and you
will heur froui his lips 01 see iu his
eyes a tribute of resp-ct to this great
aud guud man. This can be suid ol
tew mortals, either in Toronto or elsewhere, but it ia a simple fact.
Une day a member of the staff of
Ihls journal was chatting with u dealer iu rare bouks. The name ol Dr.
llurwa-h was brought up as a man
whu owned a fine library. The dealer's attitude at once became one of
actual affection, and he took Irom his
pocket a letter which the chancellor
nad written to lum years ago, aud
which he alwti.-s carries. The Jitter—
just a brlol note—was oue of those
manifestations of courtesy so easily,
yet so rarely, given in this hurrying
agu. lt was to thank the dealer for
■; securing a certain book, una a delight-
1 lul note it waa. Moat ot us, with our
trivial duties, aro "too busy" for such
courtesies—not so, however, men who
have big duties and big minds like
Chancellor Burwash. 'Ihe doing ol
such little tilings, which did uul nave
to be done, wus, by the way, one ol
| tlm characteristics ol Gold win Smith
which made him deeply respected eveu
: hy those iu disagreement witli lu*
views.
Homo newspaper workers havu occasion to call up many prominent men
j by telephone irom time to time, aud
1 in this way tbey havu experiences
i which   cause   them    to    modify   their
judgment of  certain characters,  al-
lhoiie,h well enough known perhaps in
1 a mure personal sense. Call up Chun-
1 eel lor Burwush any tune and ask his
; view uu nny subject, aud you wlH not
; only get a view worth while, hut
promptly and wilh distinguished courtesy-even io an unk'nown. bothersome
person.   An.l the chancellor's voice is
so young and fresh you would not
believe him to be past thc "alloted
1 span."
i    The courtesy of Dr. Burwash helps
, you to understand how, in  all cou-
diets id theological opinion, he calm-
' ly holds his way and yet escapes tin-
] kindly criticism.   Other men may he
a*   absolutely   sincere   and    yet   mil-
understood.    But the chancellor can
; no  more  lie  misunderstood than  the
shining   sun.     The   influence   which
, his character ami attitude have had
I on    Victoria   students   would   alone
murk him as a towering figure,  but
ids influence  has gone  Out Tor many
years in many directions.
Chancellor   Burwash   was   horn   in
: Argenteufl, Qu>bec, of United Empire
Loyalist stock.   With a broad e-iuca
\ tion on a broad foundation of virtuous,
1 virile manhood, he entered the Methi-
dist ministry in Ontario in 1SG0.   lid
became   a   professor   et   Victoria   sn
years luter, and was appointed preif*
dent and chancellor iu isn    He is the
author   of   a   number   of   theolngic-tl
works, also of "The Life and Times of
Egerton Ryerson" and "Development
of the University of Toronto as a provincial institution/' As preacher.
, teacher, writer, and administrator, he
hus shown high ability. But his ability, great ai it is, is as nothing to hii

THE SCOTTISH'DRAGOONS.
Eastern Townships Regiment Ranks
High In Canadian Cavalry Corps.
The I3tlt Scottish .Light Dragoons
Is u cavalry regiment from the Eastern Townships in tie Prjvince of
Quebec. The regimett, although organized only in 1903, has attained such
a degree of efficiency that it ia to-day
looked upon as one of the best cavalry regiments in Canada. Last year
it won the Turner Efficiency Shield
for being the best 'regiment ia the
Province of Quebec, 'and at the camp
which just closed at tVarnham it again
won the shield.,      •*
This regiment wh-n organized tn
1903 took the place ol the old 70th
Infantry, which previously had been
recruited Irom the Eastern Townships, lt consisted at fir-t of five
squadrons, "A" being located at Stan-
stead, "B" at Knowlton, "C" at Waterloo, "D" nt Stanbridgo East and
"I'." at Cowunsville. Two years ago_
when the -Hitli Stanstend Light Horse
was organized "A" Squadron was
transfererd to the new regiment, and
"I," Squadron changed to "A." The
regiment was organlted during Lord
Duudouald's regime In 1003. The
lirst commander ol the regiment was
Col. Charles A. Smart, who was succeeded by Col. D. M. Stewart, and
he in turn hv the present command
er, Col. li. il. Morrill. The present
squadron commanders arc: "A," Mai
li. 11 Baker, who is senior squtidrun
commander  and will likely succeed
Col. Morrill aa commander of tho regiment; "B," Ma). Miltiinore; "C."
Mai. II, Slowart, and "D," MaJ, Bus-
sell.
The change from au infantry to a
cavalry regiment has proved very
popular among tbe young men of the
Eastern Townships.   There is now no
di tli unity about securing enough
uieu to keep up tho strength tif tin.1
cavalry regiment, whereas there had
been considerable dill.culty iu obtaining sufficient to nil tin* ranks of
the infantry. Tito fact that the regiment has won the Turner Efficiency
Shield two years iu succession is in
itself a very good guarantee ol its
standing among the other regiments
in tin- province.
Christening Midland.
At the extreme southeast, end of
j Georgian Hay is tne inlet marked on
the Bayfield chart "Mutidy's Bay,"
now better known a* "Midland Bay,"
It is the exact shape of a horseshoe,
aud the waters are deep enough, even
at thu shore, to permit the old sailing ships to lock their spars in the
branches ol the trees. The buy is
without ruck or shoal, and is by long
odds the best harbor on fresh water.
Thirty-five years ago the laud along
the waters ol the buy was an unbroken
wilderness. To the south, about half
a mile from the water, there were oue
or two farms, the merest clearances In
the woods, which had been cut out
by one or two settlers who were half
farmer and half trapper.
The location ia uu ideal one for a
town. There is enough r.at laud close
to the water for business situs and
factories, while as you go further back
the land rises in terraces so that the
residents can have an uniuterupted'
view* ol a magnificent sheet of water
beautiiul iu calm or storm.
Tiie place took the fancy of a number of capitalists in Port Hope and
that neighborhood, who had become

of the country. The rats themHelves
have the disease. A flea whicli sucks
the blood uf the rut lakes the germs
Into Its Hloimich. If the Ilea bites a
human being within n period of three
weeks the germs are transferred and
thu human being coutniclH the disease.
Until recently It hud been supjiosed
that uuiy the black rut Ih susceptible
to the plague and thnt only the Ilea
known as I'ulcx cheopls could transfer It Later discoveries, however,
bave shown thut the common brown
ur Norwuy rut Is also liable to the disease nnd thut it may he transferred by
the ordinary rat Hen.
Still another matter of great Interest
has been disclosed hy the cases in
F.ugtniid, which ure not the bubonic.
but J be even more deadly and more
dangerous pneumonic plague. The bubonic form, In which the lymphatic
glandi swell and suppurate. Is trans

way to [*rt at the Chinamen is hut a

which it is paid, and he gets few

without some of Iho necessaries of

years who ran thoroughly appreciate whal the tax means,
Many nf ua hud to live on or jmt-

(he time when commodities wore
comparatively cheap. Now they
are very dear, and even those with
a much larger salary liml it ilihVnlt
to make both etuis meet. Take tho

Garland and Harpetb met on the Pa.
elfic liner Troplco, and frum Ihe tlrst
attraction of congenial natures tbera
developed a warm personal liking.
Garland was from tho stale of Maine,
and Ilurpelh was a bou of California.
Out or 70.tssi.tssi hunum souls fate
had drawn these two, ono from tlm
east and the other from the west, to
piny the principal parts lu a strange
Incident

"Aro you going to slop over In

"Haven't heard you say."

Garland glanced at blm curiously.
"You know I really didn't mean to pry
Into your nfftilra," he said apologetically, "it's nn her n natural question for
oue tourist io ask another."
"Surely; no harm dune," returned
Hnrpeth ipilekly "Uow about yourself-ymi going In slop over''"
It wns Garland's turn to show embarrassment 'lite ipik-k look of Interrogation he Mashed at Ills companion
was met by Uitrpeth's expression of
languid itnlliTi'H'iice. It was quite
plain Hint Hnrpeth had asked theques*
tlou merely to make eonvcrsntlon. not
that he eared a rap about ihe matter.
".Maybe I'll atop over to seo the city."
ssld Garland.
Clumsy Junks rame teetering over
tbe seu to'.turd tbe mouth of ths
Ysngste, hut the Troplco left them
far behind ns sbe steamed up to ber
anchorage off Wusung and landed ber
eager passengers on to tbe little transfer tugs that would convey them up
the tributary tidal river, tbe Dtiangpu,
to hospital.ic Shanghai.
Iu tbe crowd Garlund and Hurpetb
missed earh other, accidentally or by
design. Garland could scarcely wait
for tbe tug to make ber landing at tbe
Jetty before be was off snd swinging
away up ibo bund toward tbe hotel
of bis choice.
Tbe electric lighted hotel, with Its
■Ir of western luxury mingled with
Its quiet eastern service. Impressed ibe
Yankee wanderer most favorably, and

delights which his fancy bad conjured

pore over a queer little map drawn
wltb brush strokes of tndln Ink ou
mottled tissue paper.
It was an hour afler midnight when
be left the hotel nnd made bis way
along the bund to where a flight of
stone steps ted down lo tbe river.
Here were several sampans moored to
tbe landing, and tbe coolies immediately fell to tlghllug for bis patronage.
Oe settled the mutter by stepping Into
one of tbe little boats, nnd. being
pounced upon by Its delighted owner,
be was soon paddled out Into the
stream, which glistened lo tho moonlight like molten silver.
"Ktioynnj;!   8flbef be cried sharply.
Tbe coolie nodded bla bead and
whirled the sampan about until It

tbe outline of a dark arched opening,

lighted down lis b'ticih by Ihe moon
wiih h hung above Its roofless walls.
On ellher side of Ihe while stone
walls there stood oul sharply Ibe little
black daggers, which seemed lo point
bis way. Glancing to ihe right snd
left, he followed ihelr guidance until
one last elrelllll curve of tlio passage
brought him sharp.* up ngaliwt an
other arched opening which gave forth
■ dump, earthy smell. (In the stone

Garni nd muled imckwnrd nud away

shnrply against n cold wall. There ha
stood, a part ot Hie enveloping black-

kiiw a pair nl trousers descend the tlrst

whiff or air from out of nowhere in

"Dash it all!" muttered tbe mao in

thrill of relief that tbe interloper was
uot a Chinese.
After hour- fussing nnd a Una) exela*

And another mntcli ubout bis person,
the newcomer tlung bis candle aside
and seemed tu slop and consider tbs
situation.
Perhaps he heard Garland's carefully
controlled breathing, fur suddenly lis
asked, "Who's l hereV"
Garland hesitated nud then decided
not tu answer. I'crhnps ihe stranger
would go nway nuw lhat he tvds without a light, lu tie- meantime he would
endeavor tu reach his goal by edging
along the wall ugalnst wblcb ho wus
leaning.
Ills feet made no sound In the soft I
earth, and he had made considerable ,
progress when lie hecniuu conscious of
heavy breathing behind lilin. and tie
knew thnt ihe uf iv coiner was follow-
ing lu his wake.
Gtirlnud reached nn angle of ibe

sud once Ugltlll Into a small squaru recess which had a window slanting upward in Nome cunningly contrived
opening above ground wblcb admitted
the niOUtlllglll to throw a silver clotb
over a slouu table. Gu Ihe stone table
was n small shadowy slit perhaps tbe
width of a dagger's blade.
The two men reached the table together and lu the moonlight stared
panting))' at each other. The uiuoti
lighted them up in their lips, and above
that their faces were In darkness.
"If yos'va got n light for heaven's
sake turn It ou!" growled tbe uewcom*
er lutpaileiiily, and Garland, as If It
wits the must natural thing lu the
world fur blm to hnve met a fellow
white man un thla secret errand ot
bis, snapped mi Ids lamp and threw
Its broad white beam across the face
of-Harpetb.
"Garland." said Hnrpeth stupidly.
And ihen wltb ilerce suspicion be
wentun: "You followed me. 1 thought
better of you than that, old man."
"I was here tlrst," ejaculated Garland. "I'm blamed If I don't believe
you're following me!"
"You bad au errand here?" Harpetb
put (he qtiesliou hesitatingly.
"Yes, and yours Is probably ihe
same," said Garland, wltb a trace of
relief lu bis tones. "I was fearfully
afraid somebody would find out und
get tbe cinch on me. but somehow it's

"And I In Los Angeles," admitted
Hnrpeth. "Did he sell you information concerning the black dagger
which contained one of tbe biggest em*

A GALLANT GENERAL.
How a Gunnor'B Life Was Saved at
ths Royal Review In Dublin
During the progress of the Royal
review ot the troops iu the Iri-.li command, ut Phoenix Park, Dublin, recently, there was a thrilling incident,
which, but Ior the heroic act ot a
general officer might have resulted iu
.ne death of an artilleryman. The
latter fell Irom bis horse as hii bat
tery was galloping past His Majesty,
uud lay unconscious right iu the path
of the cavalry, who were coming al-jug
in a mad charge. It looked us ii tho

presence ot mind, Brigadier-Genera.
i!), A. Funshawe, who, as commander
ol the artillery, wus riding on tin-
right ol tne column, at once wheeled1
nia bursa round in time to meet the
Hussars. In consequence of the cloud,
of dust raised by the artillery, the
gi'iiciul run a great risk of being rid-
iti-ti dowu before tho Hussars bad
nine to open their ranks but the
lluaasra smartly opened just iu time
to avert » catastrophe. Gen. Fan

The Gold Penny.
The most valuable penny eVcr coin*
ed in Great Britain was tbe gold
penny of Henry 111. Un Augu.it Id,
lit!?, u writ dated ut Chester wus is-
sued, commanding the Mayor of London to proclaim in thut city thut the
"gold penny which the king hud
caused to be made should be Immediately current there and elsewhere
witnln the realm of England, and all,
transactions uf buying and selling, at,
the rate of twenty pennies a sterling1
(i.e. twenty silver pennies) lor every
gold one."
Ibe time, however, wus by no ui'-ana
favorable for the issue of the pieces
of a denomination so much higher
than hud previously been known. Accordingly, the city of London petitioned against these coins, and the
King issued a proclamation that no
one should be obliged to take them.
The coins, nevertheless continued t..
be current, uml in 1205 their value wus
raised from twenty to twenty-four
pence; probably equivalent in pur-
cnusing power to two pounds sterling
of to-day.
It is unlikely that any great uuin
b.-r ol these coins ever was struck, lt
H probable that, by reason of tlieir
high value, they would soon be melted down, for they were ol pure gold
witiiout alloy of any kind. The collectors of to-day know of only three
or four specimens. One of thesj was
sold tor mote tuuti s-jw), anotuer for
SiOU, and un..liier for 11,000.
