I OBSERVATIONS   |
& UV THK OLD MAN. tt
The year 1HUK lias btvn a most
prosperous year in the history nt the
Craubrook Horald. Considerable bus
been done during th.it period in
udding to tlie liteifitii-s oi the Herald's printing plntrt and meeting bho
.j. in.itiil (or more room to oope wit.li
lhc Inereaswl business. The Herald
mamiKcuienl has reason to Im1
thoroughly satisfied with the business
ni the year and takes this occasion
to ihank its many patrons iu
i -ratiht'oolf iiuil thv district for
wbal they have done to make the
Herald thr success it has been, and
wishes Uiem, one ami all, .1 very
Men) Christmas,
It is reported Unit Joseph Alar-
tin, K.C, has sold his law practice
111 Viifii'diiwr and will go to London,
I'-iHgiand, the lirst of the year to reside permanently, 11 tliis is trite
Air. .Martin will witluii.il a doubt
participate in politics in the Old
Country, and if he does he will take
n prominent position, as he possesses
l-lie ability to curry imn to the front
in any country.
The Urows Nest Puss Coal com-
|iiiii> paid out $kk,380 for work done
at, i'Lt'ir mines at Michel last, month.
That is .1 Ida payroll for a town
the size of -Michel, and should eveu-
1 iui]', mnko .Michel one of Mie hcsl
business points   in the Pass.
The Herald desires to extend thc
compliments of the season to all of
its readers and lhose who are not
its readers, which numher Is comparatively small iu tliis pari, ot the
Kootenays.
It. looks now as if the fears of .1
green Christmas were unfounded. The
snowfall up to the present time has
not been very heavy, yet tliere has
been enough to give a white Christmas find to protect our banana crop.
W. \. McDonald, K.C, of Nelson,
is another one of the interior lawyers who is going to Vancouver to
locate. Nn man who lids lived in
Nelson will be missrd mmv than
Hie genial "\V. A," as he was
familiarly known Miroughoul the
Kootena)s. Mr. .McDonald is a
most companionable man, possessing
a fund nf good humor, a smile thai
will not come off, and his friends
aro numbered by the hundreds
throughout ihis territory, Mr.
Ui;Donald has made a great success
ns a lawyer, and as a platform
speaker in campaigns he possesses the
happy faculty of making friends for
the cause he espouses and no enemies, In Ihe broader field in which
h" is to enter at Vancouver as a
member of the firm of which Mr.
Cowan, M.F., is at the head, Mr.
McDonald will tic a success anil the
Herald joins with his many friends
in Ihis district in wishing him every
prosperity.
The pri/.e lighting craze lias struck
Alberta.
The CP.R. are making a change
in their line which will leave the
town of Cowley about a mile away
from the railway. This will mean
ihat tbe people nf Cowley will .have
Id gel a move on themselves.
Longboat and Hays have been offered Jl.OflO each for a Marathon
race at Los Angeles, California. This
is evidence on the face that it pays
In be in thc public eye as a foot ra'c-
\t this time of year I'. Hums,
lite meal King, is also Sultan of
Turkey.
It is said that the Kootenay
Central will make application at the
coming session ot parliament for a
further extension of time for the
construction of that mad. What the
people of ibis section arc demanding
is fewer extensions of time and
more worto (,n construction. The se
fining ot the charter for the Grand
Trunk Pacific, tlte arrangements for
subsidies ami other aids and thc
iniildiiiu ot marly one half of that,
transcontinental line has been ac-
lumplisbed while thu Kootenay Central hns been building two miles of
road. There is nn portion of Canada
Hint demands transportation facilities mnre than the Kootenav Vallev
an.l if seems tn the Herald that IL
is up to parliament to urge the
hackers nf this project to net down
to business and do mnre building aid
less scheming.
During the year closing lhe Herald
has paid out in wages alone nearly
$7000 and virtually "every dollar ol
i t. has hoen spent In Cranbrook.
Thus it cm be seen that the
llernld as ,(ii industrial Institution
is oi no small value to the
business interests of Cranhrook, This
.1 mount dnes not include hundreds
..f dollars expended in thc way of
other expenses in operating this
business.
If ynu know of any woman nr
child that- is in need do what, you

Canada exported $8,0110.Oflfl more of
agricultural Implements last November than   sho did    a year ago    last
November. This is a great record
and we trust that none of tliis
machinery was sold to the foreign
trade loi less money than was
charged    Io   ihe Canadian farmer.
There Is an unforluiiulo rivalry
arising between Calvary and Loth-
bridge, and in consequence llie papers of these two cities are indulging
in a Vancouver-Victoria war. Cut
it out, gentlemen. Alberta is one of
lilu gteat. graneties uf the world and
her products will build up in time
several large cities in that prov-
l>. There is roam for an Edmonton, a Calgary, a Lethbridge and
othei cities, ii this is not true
in i liai domain it would be far
better lor the people to seek fields
anew m search of permanent prosperity.
The appointment of Thomas Taylor
11 minister of public works will be
i lemon in the stocking of Billj Hoss
01 Christmas.
riwinub Taylor,   M.P.I*., of Hevel-
stoKC, has been named by the
McUride government as minister of
public works. The appointment is
a uood one .md Alt. Taylor should bo
1,111 rued   by acclamation.
Last Monday, the 21st, was the
shortest day in Uie year, therefore, Uio back of the winter is
broKcn, and we can look forward to
longer days.
Tomorrow   will be Christmas Day.
The Herald wishes    all its readers A
Happj  Christmas.     Particularly   the
Herald would wish its young readers
he     compliments ol the season,  be-
i.tiiie   tins    season is   theirs    more
specially.        In a   citv like    Cranlirook, where    tbe schools are   lilled
1 overflowing and where baby   oarages     till    the    streets, the rising
■iteration is    something for all    01
, to    do something at    Christmastime to    make    those little    hearts
gittd.     Bye and bye     t-he work      of
this hard-hearted old world will fall
nu     their     shoulders and it is now,
i\..ile they arc voung and with     all
thuir troubles    'ahead of them,   that
:,,- bhould put   all    the sunshine aud
•heel fulness into their  lives that   wc
an.       Sou   that   the children    are
treated     to    the spirit   of Vuletldo,
because   that is much more to   tbem
hail the costiliest of gifts.

•Ht; lUOKALD IS INDEPENDENT.
ISvet'j now and then sonic, individual who fails to understand
tia- dilieiciice between the meaning ol
die words •'independent," and '■neutral," lakes a fling at Uie Herald
.md lb.' Herald editor hecause the
Herald slates that it is au in-
liepondeni papei, notwithstanding the
i.iei ihal. it ili<l all in its power
mi ihe Liberal party during Uie
K-c.'iii Dominion campaign and the
byc-olcct Ions 111 t he Kootenays.
I besu misguided persons imagine that
it a paper is independent it cannot
consistently support anv party, We
lmve uu desire tn enter into an argument on this question, as it would
prove u ti pro lit able and useless. Net,
we would rt'tnlerate the statement
Ihal the Herald is independent now
aud always has been, and -dining its
cloven vears existence only one individual* has dictated ils policy and
lhat is the present manager and
editor. No partv leaders, no faction, no clique or elan has over
ventured to issue commands as te
wbal course tin1 Herald should follow on any public iptestion, and uo
one knows this fact better than the
wotiU-be critics. One of the liest
papers in the province, and one that
hv its work during the ri«ent cam-
palgn contributed so materially tu
lbe defeat uf Mr. Templemait, is
the Victoria Colonist. For the beneiit of the critics of 1he Herald, we
quote from this paper that has
been such a strong supporter of the
Conservative partv and add that time
and again this paper has enunciated the same principles:
Whn I discussed with Mr. Mal-
son the principles upon which the
Colonist should lu- conducted by
mi>, 1 found that he Wished tho
paper to Ih* clean, fair, honest,
fearless and independent. The
Colonist had long lieen allied,
more or less closely, with the
Conservative parly, and It was
Mr. Wai son's desire that this
alliance should Iw continued as
far as was compatible with 111-
(lepundcnt journalism and a desire
in promote tbe welfare uf the
eitv, lbe province and thc Itomin-
lou at larfc-e. In carrying out
this policy the ivnrse of the paper, upon nil (piestions and under
all cirenmstanee-fc, has been such
as has been determined by Mr.
Mats*'ii acting in consultation
with myself. No other person or
persons have had a voice in dt-
ivctimi tbe general pulley ol the
paper, or its course on any particular occasion. Necessarily, the
details <'f the editorial policy
have largely been in my hands,
but ••ueh as the Col„nist is today
in ns treat men I of all questions,
ii is .is ii has seemed proper to
Ah Malsnii and myself that it
sh.iuld he. This explicit state-
uifiil is m,,ilr in older that there
ma) he nn misunderstanding ol
lhe position ot Ihe Colonist. It
is absolutely free and independent.
Nm one other than Mr. Matson
has either the right or the
nowcr to dictate its course, and
tin re bas not heen an occasion
during his connection with the
panel1, when any other man, or
set of men, or any organization,
political or otherwise, has eon-
lrolled 1 or has attempted to control, the utterances of the Colonist, upon, any subject whatever.
The Ci,lt,nist is today able and
n-adv lo espouse any pause which
it mny deem just, to take any
course of action which it mav
deem fn be in the public Interest,
and lo support or oppose any
political party, according as the
policv and administration of that
party commmd themselves to it.

A few days since an earthquake
traveling apparently trom north to
south, threw the inhabitants ol the
town ol SkUlegate, Queen Charlotte
Islands, into a state of nervous apprehension. It was estimated that
the shock lasted fullv seven seconds.
No other tremors were telt. Two
Indian shacks were thrown to the
ground. The huildinge knocked down
were old, half-tumbled down affairs,
which did not require much assistance
to fall. During the earthquake Uw
earth rocked in a most alarming
manner, and every house in tbe town
was so badly shaken that occupants
tumbled out into the streets In fear
lest the buildings should be brought
down about their ears by succeeding
;hncks.

BORDEN THE MAN FOR THE OFFICE.
The Montreal Gazette ol Friday last
contains the following reference to
the Conservative leadership und Sir
Hibbert* Tupper as a possibility lor
the position:
Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper, ex-
minister ol justice, is an out-and-
out uncompromising supporter ot Mr.
It. 1- Borden, M.P., for Halifax aad
Carleton. as the leader ot tin Conservative party In the House ot
Commons, and he does not doubt hut
that the opposition members of tto
newly-elected house will rally around
Mr. Borden at the approaching meeting ol parliament aud support him
as loyally as In the past.
Although fifty-four Sir Hibbert
Tupper has changed little since Uw
days the Liberal-Conservntlve natty,
and, as when he was in th* fighting
line of his name has been mentioned
in connection with the MMMnbip,
his loyal adherence to tto cause ol
his Iricnd, Mr. Borden, will H read
with interest throughout the country. Up to last evening Uie ex-
minister had declined all attempt!
at an interview, but when a positive change was mooted this van
too much for the son ot tto Cumberland war horse of other days, aad
he proceeded to express bis -admiration for Mr. llorden in language
which cannot be misunderstood.
"To be sure," saht Sir Hibbert,
'wc all feel a little sore, and none
more so than our friends -who were
defeated on the 26th ot October.
That, however, will right itsell It
course ol time. Mr. Borden is toad
and shoulders above any man now tn
sight. He is the ablest parliamentarian in Canadian public lile and his
whole attitude in the past stands
tor everything tbat is best In tht
public lite ol the Dominion. He haa
his troubles, to he sure, and wis all
are disappointed at the result, hut
discouraged, never. Mr. Borden put
up the best possible fight and, it to
lost, It was no fault ol his, and I
need not say that It is tto duty ot
every Conservative member to rally
round Mr. Borden and continue to
(Ive him that loyal support which
)c gave the past leaders ol the Conservative party.
"Mr. llorden has lor many y»ri
been my personal Iricnd and I was
delighted when I took command ot
destines ol the party had been confided to tried and trusted hands. I
uood not tell you, therelore, that I
have the party, because I knew that
the same confidence in him today as
when he was first appointed to lead
the opposition in the House ol Commons. He, In fact, ls the one man
available, nnd will no doubt he unanimously reinstated when the members gather at Ottawa at the beginning ol  the year."

Details of ;i desperate encounter
between an armed lunatic namwl
Walsh ami Ihree members of the
Hoyal Irish Constabulary, which tool;
plaee recently at a plaee calleil Politick, near Wexford, Ireland, have iust
come to hand. A warrant had been
issued for the aires! of Walsh, a
powerfully huilt man, foi ass;nilt and
threatening to murder, and Servant
Cronin, of Hriiljretown, accompanied
hy two constables named Kcogh and
Dray proceeded to Polluck. On
reaching Walsh's house it was
found he had anticipated their visit,
ami made arrangements to receive
them by arming himself with a billhook and a long iron spear. He hid
himself on the loft and refused to
desoend. The sergeant ascended u
ladder .md narrowly escaped serious
injury, the lunatic aiming a heavy
blow at him, which just missed.
Meantime Constable Dray succcodod
In getting on the loft (which was
dark), imt, Wakh hearing the noise of
his footst«ps, slash™! all round him
with the hill-hook, anil the constable
had tit beat a hasty retreat, escaping
through Uio Map door. (tvortnires
were continued to induce the man to
desist, but they proved fruitless,
and eventually the sergeant threatened to shoot Walsh if the latter did
not surrender. Walsh then essayed
to throw down the hill-hook, and"as
he was in a stooping position, the
sergeant pounced upon him and
Knocked him down. A fierce struggle
ensued, it, taking the combined efforts of the three policemen to disarm and overpower their captive.
Walsh was subsequently committed
to Knniscorthy Asylum as a dangerous lunatic.
News has been received at Queens-
town of an alleged case of mutiny
and murder on board the schooner
Naive Tigre wliile on a coasting voyage in the South Seas. It appears
from the statement of an English
lad, one of the crew, who is in prison
at Stiava, FM, together with lhe
cook of the vessel, a Belgian, charged with the murder of the captain
and mate, and piracy, that, when the
vessel was two davs from CallOa the
cook came on deck with a chopper
In his hands and attacked the captain and made. After dodging him
around tho deck for some time they
were forced fo climb the rigging
to save their lives. Thc cook
shouted to them to come down, and
as they "would not, he brought a g"n
from the cabin and threatened to
shoot them if they did not jump into
the sea. Thev begged hard for their
lives, hut the cook was obdurate,
and had leveled the gun to fire, when
both men jumped overboard, and
must have heen drowned. Tho
schooner sailed away, and the cook
changed her name' to the White
Rose. She subsequently went ashore
on Oilbert Islands, the cook looting
her of all valuables. The English lad
said he had no part in tho crime,
being coerctd by the cook under pnin
of instant death.
Pitting a fracas in an ice cream
vendor's shop, at Newry, County
Down, a mnn named Kearney was so
seriously injured that a priest administered to him the last rites of
the church. The poliee arrested the
proprietor of the shop, an Italian
named Charles Natdoni, on a charge
of assaulting and wounding Kearney,
but fourteen police officers were subsequently required to protect the Italian from nn angry erowd, who believed that Kearney was dead. Cries
of "Lynch him," and "Duck him in
the "tide," were repeatedly raised,
hut in tlie end the prisoner was
safely lodged in the police barracks.
The crowd tVn made n rush to Nar-
donl's shop, which they declared they
would wreck, hut the police drew
a cordon around the premises and
kept tho mob at bay. Kearney is in
A critical condition.
Among tho applicants for old age
pensions, in Ireland is Charles Kelly,
who lives in the parish of Inver,
among the wild mountains near the
little town of Mount Charles, Donegal, Ireland. This wonderful old
man has reached tho remarkable age
of Ul, but his sight and hearing are
still fairly good, and his interest in
the working ol the little holding ou
which he resides and which is now
owned by bis youngest son, (a
sprightly youth ol sixty) is unabated.
The old man has a vivid recollection
of thc struggles he underwent
tiding over tho awful years ol
the Irish famine, but, remote as he
has always been from towns and
unable to read or write, he bas but
littlo recollection of historical or
political events which took place
during bis lite.
At thc base of a public memorial
to ttie late John O'Leary, a prominent member of the Irish Republican
Brotherhood, wliich it was proposed
to erect in Glasnevin cemetery, Dublin, appeared the inscription "Fenian
Leader." The Corporation Cemeteries committee, however, objected to
tho inscription, and suggested that
the wor'l "Patriot" should be submitted for "Fenian." On the
ground that sueh an alteration
would be an insult to the
dead maw's memory, the memorial
committee refuse to comply with the
suggestion, and, if necessary, they
are prepared to make arrangements
for the erection of the memorial else
where.
The Bishop of Mealh, speaking at
the Diocesan Synod in Dublin recent
Iv, referred to the finances of the
diocese. Me said it always had been
an Irish grievance that so much of
the wealth proceeding from Irish land
should have heen expended out of
the country. It was important to
realize what disaster it foreboded for
the future if those who sold their
property failed to follow tho good
example of those landlords who, being
keen in their attachment to tho
ehureh, had provided that she sliould
not seriously suffer.
An Irish woman named Mary Carroll, of the unfortunate class, was
found stabbed to the heart In a dark
street in Dublin, and the crew of a
Glasgow steamer were afterwards arrested on suspicion. Tho steamer
sailed trom Dublin soon after the
murder, and on arriving at Glasgow
her crew wero paid off. The Scotch
police traced them all, however, and
all   are  bow    under lock   and key.
Blood stains were found on the
shirt of one, and on another a large
Spanish dagger, together with a
blood-stained jersey.
An extensive Monagban farmer,

A curious story comes from Seal-
by, a village near Scarborough, relal-
"ne how a swain of fifty was disappointed at the church bv a timid
maid of 25. The mau who lives in
Scalhy, has heen twice married, and
is the" father of four children. He met
servant employed in one of the
large houses in the village, whom be
wooed and apparently won, for their
bethothal was announced and the d-ite
for the wedding set. The man had
taken n cottage and furnished it, bis
sweetheart having herself assisted In
rranging the various articles in tbe
dwelling. The bridegroom even
bought two pies to inherit the piggery at the bottom of the long garden at the rear of the cottage. When
the wedding morning came round, the
happy swain went to look for his
bride, but found that t'he had disup-
neared, taking her own share of the
furniture with her. The young woman it apnea rs, becamo timid in the
face of the responsibility of taking
unto herself four children, and decamped.
A romantic story of a pretty heirs' elopement with her uncle's chauffeur comes from Yorkshire. The
young woman is connected with some
f the best known families. She
rpaeb-xl hot aid birthday in September last, when, under her mothers
will, she became entitled to a large
fortune, In the district she is reputed to be worth at least .£100,-
000. For three years, the chauffeur,
a man of good education, and said to
be well connected, has been in thc
employ of the girl's uncle and had
special opportunities of becoming on
good terms with his employer's
wealthy niece RccenUy he asked for
fortnight's holiday to visit London. There was no suspicion at the
time that anything was wrong, but
soon after the chauffeur's departure
the family were surprised by the
news that the girl had gone to join
him. It is staled that the lady's
father afterwards received a telegram from his daughter saying she
md married the chauffeur in London.
\ gallant rescue oi a drowning man
was made one night recently by
Police Constable Henderson, oi the
Birkenhead police force. Henderson
was attracted to the Alfred docks by
cries that a man had fallen into
the water, and, without taking oil his
boots, ho plunged into tbo dock,
encumbered by his heavy tunic and
the impedimenta which constitute the
police accoutrement. In a short
time the officer had reached his man
and succeeded in holding him up until he was secured by a rope and
brought to the quay side. In the excitement a civilian jumped into the
water to aid the officer, but his
swimming powers being far less than
his courage, his bravery was of
little use. The constable and bis
would-be assistant were brought out
of the dock in a terribly exhausted
condition, and the rescued man was
sent to the hospital and detained
there. Hendersou walked home,
changed his uniform, and returned to
his beat.
That the "Spanish treasure
swindle" still finds victims is proved
hv tho case of Levi Sevan, a Carmarthenshire farmer, who figured in
the local banksuptcy court recently.
On the strength of a letter from
Spain declaring that a relative ol
bis had died there leaving an estate
valued at .£39,000, of which ho was
to inherit £10,000, thc debtor made
remittances amounting In all to
,ta2.r) to some Spanish "gentleman,
who requestwl that the money
should he paid in fi5 bank notes.
Debtor could not say how tho
swindlers became possessed of his address. Becoming alarmed on reading
of a Spanish swindle he communicated with the Spanish constabulary,
and produced a letter purporting to
come from the chief ot the police o
Valencia. The debtor was obliged
to borrow money for remittances,
and oven went t   money lenders.
London's undetected murders formed the subject of a question in
parliament recently. The Home
Secretary, Herbert Gladstone, stated
that there had been 92 murders in
the metropolitan police district since
January 1, 1904, and in ten cases
the perpetrator had not been brought
to justice. Four 0ut o! the ten undiscovered cases were those in wMon
women had died as the result of illegal operations. As they hardly bo-
long to the category of murders, as
popularly understood, Mr. Gladstone's figures are taken to rctlect
high credit on the London police by
comparison with other capitals-
Among the   undiscovered oasea    are

| An amusing discussion took place
.it a West Ham Board ol Guardians'
meet ing recently wben the members
lad decided to appoint a relieving officer, Mr. Pom Carter, ol Leicester,
at a salary of E130, rising to £20(1
per annum. in the advertisement
ihere was n condition that applications bo only received from married
men- .Mr. Carter in his application form bad said, "1 am single, but
will get married Immediately if ap-
i'"i!jtt'd." Mr. Carter said lie would
prefer to delay the wedding till he
had found a home in the district. It
was moved that he tata "P his
duties on January I, having got married meanwhile, ami as lie was still
inclined to argue, the chairman closed
the discission by telling Carter that
ii he wan tod tho post he must be
married by January 1st.
On the night of August Sl, territie
Kales raged in the Channel oft Dun-
lioness. The London fcupbonl Sydney
Foundered, and through the heroism ol
two Dutch apprentice lads belonging
lo i pilot cutler, the crew were r.s
curd and brought into Folkestone
harbor with only the aid of one
oar. To cheer up the shipwrecked
Hiilish sailors the Dutchmen, in
broken English, sane "Pull lor the
shore, sailors.'' News has reached
Folkestone that, in recognition of the
bravery of her subjects. Queen Wil-
helmina bas presented each ol the
pilot apprentices with n gold medal,
and the Dowager-Queen has conferred
on them a similar honor, The National Lifeboat Society of Holland
lias also handi'd the two heroes a
sum of gold.
An extraordinary motor accident
iccurred In Nottingham, recently,
and several people    had narrow    es-
pes. A ear belonging to a well-
known lace manufacturer, was standing outside his premises at tho top
I a Steep incline, when the chauffeur, Herbert Alboii, went in front
to turn the starting handle. Without
warning, the ear sprang forward,
bowled over the startled mechanic,
md dashed off at a terrific speed.
After a cyclist hud bad a miraculous
'sca]ic ami a number ot people had
just missed being knocked down, tho
car swerved two inches clear of a
large plate glass window, -shattered
the doorway of au antique shop to
matchwood, and stopped in a battered
indition before the alarmed proprietor.
A peculiar matrimonial tangle was
unfolded to the Maldon (Essex)
Guardians, when an application *a«
received from the Edmonton board
to allow n man tu he to sent to their
care. It appears that two men,
father and son, aged 51 and 28 respectively, were suppos-jd to be husband of the same woman, Both
claimed her, and when it suited their
convenience they transferred the
marriage certificate, It was agreed
to admit the father to thc Maldon
union, The woman in the case has
not yet put, in an appearance to
claim either of her "husbands," and
i. a matrimonial problem remains
unsolved.
While digging in a garden at Peterborough recently, a workman found a
box containing three skulls and other
human bones." About six feet below
the surface of the ground his pick
sank through the decayed wood of a
box, and his first impression was that
he bad found hidden treasure. Wben
the bones lay revealed the man was
naturally horrified at what he believed t'o be the discovery of a
triple murder. An inspection by
experts made it plain that il there
had been a murder it was probably a
thousand years old. After investigation by the poliee tbe bones were
reinterrod.
Bents Reservoir, belonging to the
Colne Corporation, and having a
holding capacity of four and a
half million gallons of water, was recently drained and drenched owing to
old clothing and a note heing found
on the embankment. The note was
as follows: "I never thought I would
come to this. I cannot help it.
Do not think I am insane. I have
slept out the last three nights, and
ean stand it no longer. I do not
think I have any relation. I come
from Newcastle.—Robert Spencer,
ago forty-three." The affair proved
to be a hoax, and great indignation
has been caused.
At the quaint church of Pleinstall,
near Chester, a service was held recently for the dedication ot the well
of St. Plegmund, friend and tutor of
Alfred the Great. For fully eleven
centuries the water of this Well
has been used in the baptisms at
Plemstall church. The Archdeacon
of Chester, who conducted the service, pointed out- that, while living
there as a hermit, Dr. Plegmund acquired such a reputation for learning
that Alfred, in 890, selected him to
be Archbishop of Canterbury.
