.Robert Mac-limy, Anglican Primate of Canada, is dead, and behind
him ho has left a record which must
be forever illustrious in the history
of Canada.' For nearly half a century his,'life was devoted to tho
Church. Apart from it, he had no
life. He never married. Neither revels in tho original Greek, nor tho
culture of roses, helped to alleviate
the hardships of his career. His recreation was work, his holidays laborious. On one of the rare occasions
when he was ordered on a vacation,
when ho ��� might, with a clear coh-
science,' have taken a rest, he fell ill.
Holidays did not agree with him. So
he has died in harness, his hand set
to the plow, his, eyo not glancing
back at   the   tremendous    titty-year
> furrow iii his wake. It was almost
Superfluous   for  the  despatch     from
v Winnipeg to say that his illness was
very short. One would assume that
of Machray. He was the kind of
man who works up to the last, always a little in debt to his physical
needs. ,So when ho took to his bed,
in tho g^ip of pneumonia, it, was
time to prepare for the end,,,
Was tt CnDibri<l-;u 11 riiiij-'ei'.
like many another noted Canadian
Clergyman, Robert Machrayt was
born in Scotland. From King's College he went to .Cambridge, where he
pursued a brilliant career. When
twenty 'yoars old ho obtained a
foundation scholarship at Sidney,
Sussex, He became a prize man in
classics, mathematics, divinity, and
the Latin and English essay. Next
year he captured another'**��� scholarship, and in 185;j was in the list of
wranglers. Shortly after his graduation ho was elected to a fellowship,
which he held to tho time of his
death. His M.A. degree was present-
came dean of his college. In the two
following years he was a university
examiner. Just such a university record as this one would expect to be
tho,natural prelude to the. career of
a Premier, a famous philosopher,
novelist, or scientist. And yet all
this erudition, all the stern 'discipline to which the young soldier of
knowledge subjected himself was to
fit him to labor among savages. The
wrangler was to talk Chinook jargon to the Crocs and the ���Chippewa ss The Cambridge examiner was
to hear squalid half-breeds recite tho
Apostle's Creed. J.lut oven with hia
' degree., and his university famo, he
.was not yot equipped. In 1^55 he
jjyv'as ordained, and from . 1859 to
$802 he assisted an "English vicar;
���ojJkI then he Was given the vicarage
d'f;-M.adingkvy, For throe years he
labored over this well-tilled held,
and then from across tho Western
pea*-* came tlie call, which, hearing,
hQjpbeyed. Dr, Anderson resigned
i'roiii the Seo of .Kuper-'.s Land, and
,thovvacant bishopric was given to
the young vicar. ,

In England, a bank note -when presented at the bank which issued it
is retired. It only gets one chance.
A new one is issued in its place.
T;i��:   -lntiu'i- tliiir.!!:,
The true mother Church of the
I'ioce.se of Rupert's Land, or, as wc
should sny, of Manitoba and the
Northwest Territories, had been established'before the coming of Machray at Kildonnn, two miles north
of Fort Carry. Near this was Bishop's Court, a long building-, which
wus to become the educational soul
of the great West. Tin's was the
homo, of tho Bishop for many years,
if such a traveler, could be said to
have a home, in the true sense of
the word. Here it was that Machray planned the reopening" of St.
John's College, founded hy his predecessor, and afterwards abandoned,
and from the time of his coming to
this country this college was as an
older son to the childless man. How
the old place was opened,; how it
prospered, and what influence it has
since exerted en the intellectual development of the West are .matters
of history. The college was. the
only rival the Church had in the
Bishop's affections, and for all it
is and has been Machray must be
thanked. His indefatigable labors
have been recognized by churchmen
in Canada and England. The lato
Queen made him a prelate of the
Order/of !3t. Michael and St.
George. The Anglican Church in
Canada chose him Primate of that
body. Churchmen have called him
the greatest of their number outside
of England, but Canada reveres the
memory of-his Grace, the missionary..- '-.-".-,' j;:

prevalent on the frontier of   Alaska
has beon   of a kind which might   at
any  mohiont havo brought    us   into
a serious    and    acute      controversy
with tho United States, and for this
reason,  that the frontier might have

In 170S there wore 3,000' cof-;  feo houses, and each coffee house had  its habitual circle.

"You may find us engaged unless you  hurry back," Amy flung after them.  Jock laughed aloud. "Let's hido," he  said. "I know the very place. Won't  it give Billy a jolt to come back and  find us missing?" ������  "He needs one, good and hard," Amy  said, tossing her head tlio least bit.   "I  came out of tbat well alive. It's always half full of choke damp! That  is why my father had it built over!  Why didn't I think to tell everybody?"  Billy seemed not to hear. With giant  strength he wrecked the rotten lattice,  clearing the well .mouth, then Hung off  coat and shoes, and prepared to clumber down. - He had already sent for  ropes. "No, I can't wait, with Amy  dying," he said to those who tried to  stop him. "I've got to save her or  die with her.

Some of tho curious  wore for crowding the edges to  watch him, but wiser ones held them  i back.   "Give him all the light and air  possible, poor fellow; he needs both,"    '  ; Squire Clark  said.    Young  Alanson,  stripped and barefooted, sprang to the  edge of the curb.   "Who'll follow me?"  j be asked.   "I'm- going down, right behind Billy; we niuy make a live chain  before it's too late."  "I'll follo-v! And II- And I!" came  from all about,   in a little, the human   ���������  line was ovor the edge, creeping down, .  down to the dangerous deeps, noisome t  and cold.   Biliy heard it coming, and  shouted up:  "In time, thank God!   I hear moans!" .  Then he gave a great inarticulate cry.  There, clinging to the rough rock wall,  was Amy, five feet above tbe glimmer-/  ing  water,   which   lapped  something ,  dark and limp.  . "Here, you! Take her up!" he cried  hoarsely, husbanding his breath all-.be  might. He had come to the thick, deadT  ly damp. Unless he was quick ind  bold it would make an end of him', as  it had possibly already made an ,eiid  of poor, light hearted Jock. Clinging'  fast with one hand, his feet well braced  across the well breadth, he swung Amy.  up with the other into, young Alan-  son's hold. The others knew enough to  pass her on up and out. Drawing a'  long, long breath, Billy leaped down  beside the insensible figure at the bottom, caught it up and began a desperate ascent. ,  "Hold hard,  Billy!    I'm coming to  help!" young Alanson cried, setting his  feet firmly and bending until his bead,  was almost level with them.   Thus he   -  gripped Jock's  collar  and. somewhat  eased the strain on Billy! ������������������ Both.1 were,  however, so near to smothering their  -tense���������muscles���������ga^-e���������down.-_^Lights���������  swam before their eyes; their heads  were bursting; the subtle heaviness in  chest and nostrils numbed them to the  bone.

VWe'll pull you two-  out safei"-the me'tt' higher Mup cried to  them and- then, when they saw their  plight, came down like Trojans to help,'  It was little short of a' miracle that any  of the three got out alive. But some-  bow, by the good Godrs mercy, tbey  allcame into reviving upper air. Jock  had the face of a dead man. At sight  of him Amy fell to sobbing.
