At {the same.time he and h's  audience had just heard the tribute  paid to him.by Mr. Borden..Curiosity was on tip-toe to : ascertain if  he wouid accepc the call from his-  leader;, the fact moreover that he,  was, a stranger and a man about  whom so anuch had.been heard  made it difficult for him to come  up to the popular expectation wi'.h  out seeming to push himself too  much   into   prominence.
