Church Miss Tobacco, daughter of  Mr James Tobacco, was united  in  marriage to Mr J. Cropetti.     The  bride was' .beautifully   attired   in1  white cashmere and   silk.      After  the ceremony the bridal party drove  to7the residence of'  Mr   and,_ Mrs  Tobacco where preparations were  made for a" long ^honeymoon   to  < sunny Italy.    A sumptuous repast  was served at the bride's home durr  ing the early part of   the  day   to  which a host of their friends   were  invited.   A large number, of friends  ansembled Jat  the   stition   to   bid  them good-bye, and wish them well,  to the accompaniment of  showers  of rice.   The bride/s traveling dress  was garnet velvet and cashmere.  \ ���������n���������-_.������   AGBIOULTUBtAL  EXHIBITION.  The exhibition held at iCourtney  on 36th was most gratifying, and  with the sports the day was passed  most pleasantly.  Owing to the prize list failing to  reach us, we are obliged to defer  tbe publication of that   document  to another issue.  .    ������������������������'���������1  ���������  On Friday, Sept. 20, a fifth son  was* born to M r and Mrs Gr.eo. Roe  at Courtney.  The members of the defunct Nob  Hill Council have Jong beenrlookiug  for a place they oould fisH  in'^dur-  *   -      , '    ,  '   '    *     * ** -  ing the  long, cold| dreary   winter  months. < A place they could fish  * i * ������������������  in jin. peace   and   quietness,   and  warmth, and lo! what was  thought  .to be unattainable has been  found. ^  The secret is known to J>ut, few, but  we shall now t "biow the  gaff'   so  that early applicants may'have \%  chance of getting good places. Sine*  No. 4   has been   drinking" in   ber  thousands of gallons of pure lake-  WHter, it  has   been   discovered by  Nickynac, the civic detective, that  many trout, mostly  of,,great .size,  puch as th'<se that  Mike lost rlatt  summer, have meandered   into the  flume thinking they had discovered a new outlet to Courtney.    It ia  obvious that after going a short die  t������ nee, they were unable  to   return  1  by the way they came, in fict, they  were hurried along at a greatly  accelerated rate of speed, hence, the  detective argues there must be  many fine fish in the stalls, and  just so soon as conditions are right,  fishing will begin in No. 4 slope.  Wattie's Scotch * flies will   not   be  1  used. Bait will be the fetcher, and  spearing by pitlamp light. , Of  course the discoverers claim tbe  right to the best pools, but there  will be room for many. Tickets for  the season, may be obtained (on  payment of_ihe proper fees) from  Crackey, Nob Hill.  *" "���������& vt-v-*i  >i  _.->  ���������&���������  &������&$&^P������?V!������2u  ���������H";^^  -f-'V-frfWrV^iV.. ������*-���������*! **'-���������.> t,>^>-  .X  r' 'fi  *������,-  the  \ i  A MEMORY.

Hay.    of    the  Ottawa  Central  Experimental  Farm,   has  returned from Glasgow,  whore he    has  been looking after a portion of Canada's exhibit.     Contrary to  the    reports sent out, all the exhibits at the  Glasgow Exposition are not ready" to  be shown to visitors.    Thc'Kussians,  ���������for     instance,     have not yet   opened  their     building to  the  public.     Canada's  agricultural  exhibit  is  said  to  be tho finest the British public    has  ever seen.    fOnc of the features of the  exhibit is an octagonal stand 65 feet  in - circumference     and 35  feet, high,  covered with Canadian grains   About  the  bottom  of the stand,   which     is  called     "Canada's   Agricultural  Trophy/'  larg^   sheaves have  been     ar"-  ranged.     rAe,stand   is   covered  with  red- cloth, and against this the gram  shows     to     great      advantage.     The  Scotch people,  who produce the best,  oats  in  the  world,   were surprised  at  file excellent  Canadian  oats   display-,  ,ecl, and Mr. Hay says one miller asked where he could buy 100,000 bushels .annually of Banner oats,  such ar������  were exhibited  in  the  Canadian   section.     Canada has 10,000 samples of  grain    on      exhiVition.       The hybrid  grains  developed  at the  Central Experimental      Farm attracted  a great  deal of attention.    These grains were  secured by crossing different kinds of  grain, and the result was an improved  variety.     The   Canadian   exhibits,  Mr.   Hay  says,   get  plenty   of  attention, and are helping the British public to lcalis-e what the Dominion can  do. ���������   ,,  ,  /"'Dollar* In OiiaShapcu.,'' ~ v  Under the, law *h silver dollar may be *f  argraiiV and a half over w*eight���������'or a   *  grain and a half "under weight, and,'this  "limit of tolerance" applies to all of oiuvt -  -silver.,coins.-In other/words, they are1**,  "not "alloSved -to/vary" more than that - .

Then it is passed between two steel rollers again and  again   until   it - is   flattened   out   and  -transformed into a thin strip of silver���������  a sort of ribbon���������a foot and'a-half in  length.   Then it is put beneath a little   ,  machine provided with  several small  punches,  by- which  hundreds of  tiny    .  disks  are punched  out of  the metal  strip.      -   , \  Now, the object of this performance  is to obtain samples of metal from all  'parts of the dollar, inasmuch as it is  conceivable that one. portion might be  richer in silver than another. The little  disks are shuffled together, and a few  of them, taken at random from the lot,  are 'subjected to an assay. Thus the  fineness of the material of the dollar is  ascertained with absolute accuracy  and,.the weight having been already  determined, the value and correctness  of that coin are perfectly known.  The sample pieces having been found  correct, it is inferred that the entire  batch of dollars i** all right.  .Tlie Main Thin*.  .

In  the course of time the Cappadocian  bakers became celebrated and were in  great demand throughout all parts of  the world as then known.  These mills wero usually placed upon boats on the river, being so elevated  and contrived as to be easily driven by  the water, and the millers were thus  enabled to move from place to place,  distributing the meal to their customers.  .}��������� Tf you don't intend to marry the  girl, keep, away and give the other  fellow, a chance.  j Miiard'3 LMient Cures Garget ia Cows.

The most satisfactory silo is the one  made of one thickness of two inch  staves, planed on both sides and heavily tongued and grooved, says F. II.  Ryder iii National Stockman. The bev-  , el on the edges of the staves conforms  ' to the circle, and the staves should also  be matched according to the bevel. I  have in mind a certain make of 'silo I  Lave seen in which the staves are be\*-.  eled, but the' groove (is not put in at  right angles to the bevel, so that when  the tongue^ or fin is inserted it is almost certain to split, leaving the lumber practically unmatched. The object of 'having the staves matched is  twofold���������to secure a tighter joint and  to prevent the building from blowing  i around the ends or tne pin. tnus  -(ringing the edges of the opening to--  ���������jether.

The increased value of skimmilk  direct from the separator when fed to  pigs or calves will in a yery short time  make a large payment on the machine.  Then. too. the very best butter is made  from cream direct from the separator.  This was shown at the recent creamery  butter makers' show at St. Paul, where  the* first prize butter, scoring \)!Vi  poiuts, was made at a creamery  where l.l per- cent of " the cream  came .from the farm separator. The  separator saves work in the' house  ,and is'much easier to clean thanvalot  of sour cans or pans. It requires but  little, room and does away with,handling a lot of ice to cool tbe milk. Iu  July and August, when it is almost impossible to get good cream or make  good butter by gravity methods, tbe  f-epa rat or .works as usual, and1 by  proper handling, of' the cream as good  butter can ���������be''made as during cooler  weather.' ���������'  The Guernsey Cattle- Club.  The Guernsey Cattle club has its register for pedigree and "now proposes to  open another, the register for performance, or, rather, for all proved work:  coriiing up to or exceeding a certain  standard.'  j The matter has been under consideration by the Guernsey Cattle club for  'some time, owners of Guernsey cattle  having felt It an injustice to the breed  thai UK-re were only their own tales of  performance to show for tbe merits of  their animals, and. as the better the  performance was the greater the donbts.  might be.'therefore the less they were  Inclined to give figures.

Valuable Adjunct to tne Small Dairy  -i Equipment, .  Addressing the t Kansas state board  of agriculture at,'its annual meeting,  G. B. Morgan said:^  The value of the farm separator to  the private dairyman lias already passed the experimental stage. The evidence of our experimental stations and  the testimony of all who have made a  careful, intelligent comparison between  the gravity system and the modern  cream separator are practically a unit in  favor of the latter for the private dairyman. The question, as to its advantages in, localities where'creameries  are established is one upon which there  iSvinuch difference of opinion.   ,  /The most serious  problem confronting creameries at this time is that of '  operating expenses.'   This applies alike  both   to -creamery   aud' patron,   and,  1 whether tender co-operative or proprietary management,  it makes but little  difference'.     All  are  vitally   interesteds  ' In tlie expense accsurit.    If the eastern,  creamery enjoys a' patronage of from,  10,000 to 30.000 pounds of, milk per day,  while many of our creameries are running, - along, at   from ,3,000   to   5.000  pounds,' then we have lost much of the  advantage   we 'possess on account of  our cheaper dairy,foods in tbe,increased-cost of operating.   Evidently as' long  as1 present conditions exist some'eys-r  tern of centralization is inevitable.     <  The ,'farm separator, we ' think, will <  assist greatly in solving-this'problem.  It means a minimum of, labor with a  maximum of profit. The product Is  carried in condensed form from the  patron to the creamery. We feel safe  in saying that fully, one-third of the  skimming stations in this state froca  October to May do not'pay running expenses. It is in these localities where  the farm separator will prove of tbe  greatest benefit.  At points where the patronage is liberal any radical change would not be  advisable. It wilt to a great extent  work its own way. But at these weak-  ' er."nonpaying stations- much good ,can  be accomplished by the use of the farm  " separator, especially in territory where '  thV distance is too great to-haul milk.  True, to carry out this plan tbe fanner  must make an investment for which  be Is amply compensated in the increased" value of the skimmilk and the  convenience of having it on the farm  morning and evening to be fed while  warm, sweet and fresh and' In the best (  possible condition to be given', to the  .young animal." Tbe milk patron often  suffers a severe loss on account of his  Sunday's miik during tbe heated term,  lip also loses again by feeding new  milk to tbe calf for six or eight' weeks  on account of the danger Incurred in  feeding the creamery milk Where  milk Is fed from the farm separator by  careful management and tbe use of  Kaffir corn meal the calf can be put  upon skimmed milk at-15 days old. It  has been our experience that the patrons with front 10 to 15 cows save  enough In one year' to pay for a $100  machine.  She   S-ynipntlifsted.

GEORGE RATHEONS ������  That flying glimpse of a disappearing object was not the stretch  ���������of imagination.  "'What have you found''" he asked,  '-coming alongside tlie phunMuan, and  ���������also riveting lus gaze upon the  ground.  "Footprints, and 'not made' by an  ���������angel, either, you bet," returned  blunt Jim, pointing to where the  .dust had been ,disturbed, and there  Rex "discerned a giant   imprint.  It, meant much to them���������discovery���������  . on alarm, tlie assembling of the  black hosts, the 'destruction of their  only-path out of tlie deep'crater, a  siege, and ultimate 'destruction! No  wonder then, -with thc-'e' possibilities  ���������staring them in the face both Hex  ���������and the cowboy were anxious to  know whither .the black spy had  flown.  Besides,   Bludsce was at  once over-  'y/helmed  by  a  feverish  desire  to  follow,  that being a part and parcel of  his religion. - >  He flashed the light over the trail,  arid Bex did not say ;nay���������indeed, he1  was in, quite the mood.-to accompany  Bludsoe 'down -through - the infernal  regions if so be there was an object  in visiting that abode of the dark  ���������shades.  As he -went on Jim kept tip a run-  'ning commentary upon the situation,  ���������and in. that way gave vent to his  Seclingst while at the same' time mi-  "partihg a certain amount' of information; for Rex had never Iwd much  practice as a^ trailer, and might be'  looked, upon as something of a "tenderfoot" in cowboy parlance  "See,   here's   where  he   made     that  dying- leap  when  you. had .a'glimpse  ������of him, and I just reckon, as how the  'critter must  ha\e -"been, scared '   nigh  'to  death when the^fnjC^flashed up" so,  ���������sudden  like.   He ..ifuutetl 'yonder���������you]  ���������can  see how  heV^iipjpe<l' as  he.  came  ���������down,   but  recQverccr*"a'nd ran  like    a  scart deer.    - -;*",-,s-1-',":--*  -' "HereSs the wall of the place,     but  ���������jest  in   this "spot  you" see  it's  riven,  ���������and   through���������that- opening   our , chap  ���������went lickct'ty  split.  ���������, '"vo\v,j if ..you asked mv advice, sir,  I'd surely say we'd be foolish not to  go "a'litUc" way   into   that ere  crevice  and   see   if  we1 can't   run   across   this  cussed  spy,  because   if  he  once     gets  clear,   we'll have  to   [jay the    piper.  Is  it a go,  Sir. Bex?".  His "tone and manner werq' persuasive,    and    Bex,   falling  in   vhth    the  i  spirit  of adventure,  as  he  recognised  the ^alue of keeping this scout from  giving the wild alarm, immediately  acquiesced.  So they plunged into the black crevice, which looked -more like some  freak .of nature, icsulting from a con-  vulsionyof the mountain in the days  when I-Crokato was violent, than any  ���������possible passage constructed by man's  'ingenuity.  It%was astonishing how rapidly the  .experienced cBludsoo pushed on. lie  -seemed to keep one c.\ c on the ground  so as to follow the trail, while with  the other he endeavored to pierce tlie  darkness that lay like a pall just beyond the line "marking tlie limit of  'their feeble  torch's power.  Hastings could not but experience  .a sensation of thrilling interest as he  ijkept at the other's heels.  They had quickly passed around  several angles, so that a backward  glance which Bex shot over his  shoulder failed to reveal the first  sign of light from the rear. On cither  side were the roughened, black walls,  which looked very much as though  *Lhcy had been binned by the fue of  ages, while under their feet the base  -of the crevice was threatening to trip  ���������them   up  with   e\er\    irio\e.  To add to the interest of the affair,- both of them began to sniff suspiciously of the atmosphere, as  though it aroused unbidden fears, for  it became strongly impregnated with  sulphur or brimstone, as though they  approached  the  bottomless   pit.  And as they thus rushed on Bex  was surprised to luue (lie ilambeau  thrust into his hand, while his com-  ion shouted  over  Ins .shoulder:  pan  We're closing on him  fast, sir!'  CHAPTER XIII.  LHE S.VAP OH  A  HOPE.  >It was easy to see that the cow-  S'boy had some plan of action in his  -mind���������that  even  as   he  ran   he     had  ��������� arranged a scheme by means��������� of which  he hoped and expected to accomplish  ��������� the downfall of the black spy who  -scurried on before, and of whom they  -had occasional glimpses as he bounded from pillar  to   post     in  a-sullen,  '������������������unwilling-way,   as   though   he     liked  not the idea  of  being  thus  chased so  : heartily into the bowels of the earth.  Ilex  entered  into  the spirit  of    the  game with a zest known only to tlie  hunter���������an  eagerness   that  is  seldom  ���������-reciprocated by the fugitive, be it man  ��������� or beast, straining every muscle and  nerve to escape.  He kept close at Bludsoe's heels,  and waved the torch above his head  so that with the draught caused by  this double movement, the flame hissed and roared, and ate deeper into the  wood of which the flambeau was  ���������composed.  The air grew even more suggestive  of the infernal regions-���������it was fetid  and strongly impregnated with that  sulphurous odor which they had no-  ticed, ever since plunging into the  crack in the black rocks.  Still Jim Bludsoe ran on, and Bex  would not allow any man to outdo  him in an affair of this kind, no matter where it led. That was the  Scotch blood of his way-back ancestors again���������he owed much that < was  wholesome in his disposition to those,  sturdy men of brake and fen from  whom he was descended. ' ,  - As his'eye re.--.U-d momentarily on  his   companion   he   discovered       that  .lun   had   made  his   lasso      ready   that   weapon   which   is   more  "   than  knife  or  revoher  in  the     hands      of'  one  to  the  manner  born,    and,  with-  which   an   adept   can   perform     feats  that' might  stamp  him  a   wizard    in,  the eyes  of a  tenderfoot.  He coiled it as he ran and woe  betide the black fugitive ' once the  rope was' launched forth by that  practiced arm.  All the while they gained,  possibly  because,    the   man   * who   fled   before  them experienced an unwillingness to  explore   the   mysteries   of   the      subterranean passage,  and also     on   account of their avoiding obstacles   lie  stumbled   over,   thanks, to   thc0light.  Now he could  be seen very plainly  ���������Bex even caught the look of deadly i fear"0 up on  his  dark  face      as      lie'  twisted his  head around  in the     endeavor '   to      lhs~;>v-ei    whether   they  were still gaining.  He really feTt sorry for the  wretch, and "\ot, knowing what it  meant for them should' the Zambodi  warrior escape to sound the alarm,  and arouse the 'black impis within  ten leagues of the sacred crater, he^  was just as determined as Jim* to'  continue the mad race until it'came  to   its  legitimate 'conclusion. '   '.  Twice he shouted to the lellow to  stop'and surrender, but his voice  sounded' like a .trumpet blast in that  narrow, ragged clctt. and appeared  to only inspire additional terror in  tho fugitive, judging from 'the fresh  spurt   he   took,     tear    lending     hiLn  WINNIPEG MARKETS.  to  hurl  to     swing  if    to , give  might   keep  Sil'1-1'*-  down  Bludsoe "was  almost  ready  his   i;ope���������he   had   begun  it around  his    hoad    as  warning to Bex  that he  his  distance. '  ���������L-The black runner no longer  ; scrambled' over the rocks like a  ������������������'frightened chamois���������ho had come to  a* full stop, and h:F al'ilude was  that of a iwu who iinds himself  between the'devil - and the do--p sea  ���������behind him weie those white,,adventurous spirits from whose touch  he had fled in such haste like , .one  possessed, while before him- yawned  an ab^ss whence arose a weird vapor that looked like, * a phantom  smoke, together .with".'a.: dull  as of some fiery furna"c^c'j"*-far  in'the bosom   of  the  earth."  Bex saw and his heart was chilled  with horror at the terrible choice  thrust upon the fugitive.  To maku the leap meant but one  chance in ten of his reaching the op-*  posite side, such was the width of  1he awful chasm from which these  sulphur ous iumes drifted, and should  failure be his portion his flight to  tho gates of Hades must be rapid indeed.  As the black athlete stood there,  vi I h every muscle --trained in anticipation of the fearful task before  hnn. and with one loot drawn back  to gi\e impetus to his leap, he presented a picture young. Hastings  could never forget to his d\ ing  day���������a picture that has since graced  tho walls of a salon and aroused the  most intense admiration for the mar-  \ellous look ol fear and resolution  combined upon the black face of  tho sinewy  Zambodi  warrior.  Biudsoc was swinging his lariat  with increasing power, as though it  were his intention to wrap the reckless spy in its coils ere lie had a  chance to launch himself forth upon  such   a  haphazard  mission.  lie was  too  late to prevent it.  The black athlete suddenly leaped  through space, his iorm describing a  parabola as  it rose and  fell again.

Hosts of people do themselves irreparable harm and  shorten their lives by many years by the use of stimulating-,  drugs to whip up the exhausted nervous, system and keep the  machinery of the body working. Others get temporary relief  from nervous headaches and body pains by the use of deadenr  ing and nerve-destroying narcotics. Both of these treatnient^  mean death.to the nervous system and hasten the approach of  paralysis and insanity.   :       ' ��������� .    ^ ;        ^     '  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is' a protest against these bid-  fashioned and villainous methods' of treatment^ Unlike, any  other medicines you ever used, Dr. Chase's Nerve Food forms  new red corpuscles in the blood and creates new nerve tissue  to replace that destroyed by overwork and disease. It is impossible to obtain a more effective treatment., for nervous disorders than Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, because it gradually and  naturally restores the wasted nerve cells and- rebuilds the system. It is the up-to-date remedy for weakness and disease  resulting from wasted nerves. -���������  n  50 cts. a Box,  6 Boxes for *"2.50.

grasp of detail is perfect.    He knows
��� '   how many Cape carts Ilenniker's col-
��� umn:has, and he is aware that there
- are three sick;Yeomen in hospital at
'   Buluwayo.
His attitude toward his subordinates is*peculiar, for he values man
only as a more or less perfect machine, rind the more perfect he is the
better he treats him. Kitchener has
no use for fops of any sor��, but he is'
not so prejudiced by appearances as
to order a man home because he
wears an eyeglass, as ' some people
would have you believe. Indeed,
some of his best officers have an affection for the monocle. If his manner *were translated into words , it
would run something like this:   -
"I am your superior officer; you
have taken service under me, and the
world will judge you according to
your progress. I have great power
entrusted to me by the King through
his Parliament, and whoever you
are or whatever position you fill in
the social world 1 can make or mar
you. I want you to do your duty,
and your duty is to do as you're
told. If you do as I bid, you shall
have all the credit- for the success in
:; obtaining'. which I used you as an
instrument. If my plans-miscarry I
' "wiil'-take the blame���unless it miscarries sUirough. inefficiency. ... I don't
;,care who your tailor is < or how many
clubs'you may be-a-member of providing you can lead -your men s into
action with -a'maximum- of dash to a
��� minimum of-risk.   I don't want heroes who will lead -their comrades up
sStoSthe    cahhonfs    mouth and reduce
; the strength  of their regirnents  '. accordingly, but steady men who    will
take cover and shoot away  obstruc-
.tio'ri/friom the'shelter of.-a nice'.'...convenient: boulder.'' ' : -
Nor   does  Kitchener   spare, himself,
as   the  recent   chase- of   Dewet  testi-
-fies.   If ho is .not-.:at Pretoria sitting
at the end of a telegraph wire he is
somewhere'    down     the     line    seeing
things for himsielf,     and    Dewet had
not  been long  in  the  colony    before
Kitchener was at De.Aar,  talking to
the cbmmandant of Hopetown about
the horses that had not   been removed  from the''Hopetown'district.    On
such occasions  "K. ol K." has a fme
flow of language.         ...._..

The creatures were on the defensive, but not one of them attempted
to strike at the master, who sat 'serenely in front of them, so long as he
did .nothing to' annoy them. Kullan

���All tbe vrorld is familiar with snuff-'
boxes, but snuff spoons are pretty little
refinements of which  this generation
hasMiardly liea'fd.    Very probably they *
came into use about two years after*
Sir George Rooke's expedition to Vigo
bay 'in 1702, when'-he captured half a
ton   of  tobacco   and   snuffk from   the-
Spanish galleons,, and snuff thus  be-
came-a common article in England.
One of the characters in a comedy
published at Oxford in 1704,  entitled,
/'An Act at Oxford." by Thomas Baker,
says, "But I carry sweet snuff for the t

��� seems strange that*a bird will sit on' a
roost and sleep all night without falling off, butthe'explanation is perfectly
simple.- 'The tendon of the leg of a bird
tbat .roosts is scr arranged that when
the leg is bent at the knee the claws
are bound td"cohtract and thus hold
,-with  a  sort of -death  grip  the  limb

chicken's"fi&et on--your wrist-and-then
make the bird, sit down, and yon will
have a practical illustration on  your

'  TUB  LATE   PRESIDENT   McKIJJ-  LBY:  o  r  For the benefit of several of our  readers who have been' divided ' on  tbe question  of the   ancestry  and  . birthplace of the late President, we  give tbe following information:  The old home of the family was  ,,.'h if'  ' in the County of Antrim, one of the  ' m ost nortqeriy districts of Ireland,  . and undet the roof of the farm  house built them, James McKinley,  an ^ancestor of the President was  born. William and James McKinley, who founded, the two branches  of the McKinley family iu America,  one in the northern, and the other  in the southern states, came directs  from the north of Ireland. ' James  WW but 12 years of age when he  arrived in America. He was afterwards the father of David McKinley who was the' great grandfather  ft ���������  .  of the President.     At the time of  T t'"  tbe President's birth,   the  father  was manager of an iron furnace at  Niles, Ohio.   A few years later the  family removed to   Poland   where  ���������   William, Jr., attended  the   public  school, and' made   such   progress  .thai-he tawjeht one term0 in a dib-  trict school.

When he  recovered he joined the army with  a cousin, and on his return from  the war entered on the study of  law. On January 25, 1871, Major  McKinley married Miss \ Ida Sax-  ton of Canton, Ohio, daughter of  the' late James' Baxton, a banker  and capitalist. * After her marriage  she became a, communicant of the  church'of which her  husband   had  i  i  been a lifelong member. In course  of time'-twosgirl-i blessed the union,  Kate .and Ida. both of whom died  in childhood. William McKinley  was the twenty-fifth President of  the U.S. and came nearer reaching  the standard of what an American  gentleman and statesman should  be. since the days of Geo. Washington. ��������� At the'time jof his death he  was 58 years of age. The direct  cause of death as issued by the coroner's certificate was gangrene of  both walls of the stomach and pancreas; following gunshot wound.
