Lot me begin by explaining that I  have  set  myself  the   task  of  telling  this story for  two sufficient reasons.  The first," bocauso I consider that it  presents as good a warning to a youns;  fellow  as  he could    anywhere    rind,  against allowing himself    to    be    deluded by a false hatred into commit-  ting a aln that at "any other time he  would -consider in every way'contemptible' and cowardly;   and  the second,  because I think It just possible thi-  It may serve to set others    on    ths-u-  guard against one of   the    most    unscrupulous   men,   if   man    he   is���������of  which I begin to have   my   doubts���������  ���������who ever wore shoe leather.    If   the  first should  prove of no' avail, I.t'iiii  console rnyself with the reflection that  /I have at least done my best, 'and,'nt  any rate, can have wrought no harm:  If the second is not required, well, In  that case, I think I shall  have satisfactorily  proved   to  niy  reader,  whoever >)  may be, what a  truly lucky  man  he  may oonsidor  himself never  to have fallen Into Dr. Nikola's clutches. What stroke of ill fortunp brought  me.into this fiend's power I suppose I  shall never be able to discover. One  thing, howovor, is very certain,    and  that is that I have no sort of desire  ever to see or hear of him again. Sometimes when I lie in bed at night, and  my dear wife-���������the truest and noblest  woman, I verily ���������'. believe,    who   ever  came Into this world for a man's comfort and consolation���������Is   sleeping   by  my side, I think of all the curious adventurers I have passed    through'..' in  the last two years, and then fail  to  a cer-ncra amount oT pleasure 'to myself, and, I believe, some satisfaction  to my' employers. How long 1 should  have remained there I oannot say, but  when the Banyah Creek gold field was  proclaimed, I caught the fever, abandoned my. employment,   and   started  off, with ray swag upon my back, lo  try my fortune. This ���������turn**/! , but   so  poorly that less   than    seven    weeks  found  me desperate,   my savings  departed, and my claim,���������which I must  in honesty confess showed but small  prospects  of   success���������seized   for   a  debt by a rascally    Jew   storekeeper  upon tlie Field. A month later a new  rush swept away the inhabitants, and  Banyah.Creek was deserted. Not wishing to be left behind 1 followed  the  general inclination,' and in 'something  under a fortnight was prostrated    at  death's door by an attack of fever, to  which 1 should  probably    have    succumbed had It not been for tho kindness of a misanthrope of the Held, an  old miner, Ben Garmavi by name. This  extraordinary    indiv'*J|������l,    who    had  tried  his luck  on  eve':*/ golri-iield  of  importance in the five colonics and was  us yet as far off making; his fortune  as when lie had first taken a shovel  in  his  hand,  found  me  lyinc;Unconscious alongside the creek. Ko carried  me, to his tent, aud,  neglecting    his  claim, set to work to nurse nie'back  to life again, it was not until I hnd  turned tlie corner and was convalescent that I discovered    the   'curiosity  my benefactor really was.   His    per  sonal aopcHi'ance was as peculiar as  his mod*5 of life. He was very short,  very broad, very; red  fa^ed.   wore    a  long 'grey..'beard, had  bristling,  white  wondering how on earth I managed to J eye-brows,  enormous   ears,   and    the  come out of them alive, to say nothing  of doing so with so much happiness  as is now my portion. This sort of  moralizing, however, is not telling my  tale; so If you will excuse me, kind  reader, I will bring myself to my bearings and plunge into my narrative  forthwith.  By way of commencement T must  tell you something of myself and my  antecedents. My name Is Gilbert Pen-  nethome; my mother was a Tregenna,  and if you remember the old adage���������  "By Tre���������, Pol���������and Pen���������  You may know the Cornishruen,"  rou will see that I may claim to-be  Cornish to the backbone.  My father, as' far back as I can recollect him, was a highly respectable,  but decidedly choleric, gentleman of  the old school, who clung to his black  silk stock and high-rolled collar Ions  after both had ceased to be the fash-  Ion, and for a like reason had for  modern Innovations much the same  hatred as the stage coachman was  supposed to entertain for railway en-  Bines. Many were the absurd situations this animosity led him into. Of  his six children���������two boys and four  girls���������I was perhans the least fortunate in his favors. For some reason or  another���������perhaps because I was the  youngest, and my advent Into the  world had cost my mother her life���������  tie could scarcely bring himself at  any: time to treat me with ordinary  civility. In consequence I never ventured near him unless I was absolutely  compelled to do so. I went my way,  he went his���������and as a resuit we knew  but little of each other, and liked  what we saw still less. Looking back i the rheumatiz  upon it now, I can see that mine must  have been an extraordinary childhood.  To outsiders my deposition was  friendly almost to the borders of  demonstrativeness; in my own home,  where an equivalent temperament  might surely have been looked for. 1  was morose, quick to take offence, and  at times sullen even to brutlshness.  This my father, to whom opposition  of any kind was as hateful as the Reform Bill, met with an ermal spirit.  Ridicule and carping criticism, for  which he had an extraordinary aptitude, became my daily portion, and  when these failed to effect their purpose, corporal punishment followed  sure and sharp. As a result I detested  my home as cordially as I loathed my  parent, and was never so happy as  when at school���������an unnatural feeling,  as you will admit, in one so young.  From Eton I went up to Oxford, where  my former ill luck pursued me. Owing  to a misunderstanding I had the misfortune to incur the enmity of my college authorities during my first term,  and, in comnanv with two others, was  lgnomlnlously "sent down" at the outset of my second year. This was the  opportunity my family had been looking; for from the moment 1 was breeched, and they were quick to take advantage of it. Mv debts were heavy,  for I had never felt the obligation to  stint myself, and In consequence my  father's anger rose in proportion to  tho swiftness-with which the bills arrived. As tbe result of half and hour's  oae-slded conversation in the library,  vlth a thunder-shower pattering a  melancholv accompaniment upon the  window panf<?, I received a cheque  for five thousand pounds with which  to meet my University liabilities, an.  uncomplimentary review of my life,  past and present, and a curt announcement that I need never   trouble   the  parental roof with my society tn tho  future. I took him at his word, pocketed the cheque, expressed a hypocritical regret that I had caused him  so much anxiety; went up to my  room and collected my belongings;  then, having bidden lay sisters farewell in icy state in the drawing-room,  took my seat in tho dog-cart, and was  driven to the station to catch tho  oxprese to town. A month later I was  on my way to Australia with a draft  for two thousand pounds In my pocket,  and the smallest possible notion of  what I wcm going to do with myself  when I reached the Antipodes.  In its customary  fashion   ill   luck  pursued me from the very moment I  set foot on Australian soil. I landed In  Melbourno at a particularly unfortunate time, and within a month had lost  half my capital in a plausible, but ultimately unprofitable, mining venture.  The balance I took with me Into the  bush, only to lose it there as easily as  I had done the first in town. The aspect of affairs then changed completely. The so-callad friends I had hitherto made deserted me with but one exception. That one, however, curiously  enough tho least reipectablo   of   tho  lot, exerted himself on my behalf to  such good  purpose  that he obtained  for me the ponition of storekeoper on  a Murrumbldgoo sheep station. I embraced the opportunity with alacrity,  and forji.'rfii'Mm months continued in  _>>-r-,11ffni UM'ii'il'Wrneiit. wrkiiuj with  ftoiitli    -10   elmliiH  - ,  iinjiit ii I'll i-riii t.ilnluff'iiiM,  DnU'A thi* ���������.'Hrli d.iy of No,  ,MMI'".-j 1SJJP  largest hands and feet 1 have ever  seen on a liuman being. Where he hart  hailed,from originally he was unable  himself to say. His earliest recollection was .'playing*, with another small  boy upon the beach of one of the innumerable bars..'of.- Sydney harbor;  but how he had got there, whether  his parents had just emigrated, or  whether thev had been out long  enough'for him to have been born in  the colony were points of which he  pronounced- himself entirely ignorant.  He detested women, though he could  not explain the reason of his antlna-  thy, and there were not two other  men upon the field with whom he was  on even the barest sneaking terms.  How it came about that he took such  a fancy to me puzzled me then and  has continued tn do so ever since, for,  as far as I could see, save a certain  leanlnc towards the. sol'tnry in life,  we had not a single bond in common  As it was, however, we were friends  without being intimate, pnd companions by dav and night without knowing more than the merest outside  rind of each other's lives.  As soon as I was able to get about  again I bee;'ah to wonder what on  earth! should do with myself n������rxt. .1  had not a halfpenny In the'world, and  even on a gold field It is necessarv to  eat if one, desires to live, and to have  the wherewithal to pay if one desires  to eat. I therefore placed the matter  before my companion and ask his advice. He gave it with his usual candour, and in doing so solved my difficulty for me' once and for all.  "Stay, with me. 'lad."'he said, "and  help me to work the claim. What with  nd the lumbago I'm  none so .spry as I used to be, and  there's gold enou-rh in the old shaft  yonder to make the fortunes of both  of us when once-we can get at it."  Naturallv 1 lost no time in closing  with his offer, and the following morning found me in the bowels of the  earth as hard at work with pick and  shovel as my weakness would permit.  Unfortunately, however, for our  dream of wealth, the mine did not  prove as : brilliant an investment \as  its owner had pvedi.ctf-i for it, and  six week's labor .-"-nw-i'd us the futility of proceeding firther. Accordingly  we abandoned it. peeked our swags,  and set off for a mountain range away  to the southward, on prospecting  thoughts intent. Finding nothing to  suit us.'.there, _w*?i: migrated into the  west, where w> tried our hands at a  variety of .emnloyments for another  eighteen/montfcs or thereabouts. At  length, on the TTrunintina River, in  Western Queensland, we parted company, mysolf to take a position of  storeke'eper on >'.irkanurlie station in  the sp.m? neighborhood, and Ben to  try his lue'e r>n n new field that" had  Just corpe 'n'.o e-:'stence near the New  South Wale? bord"*".  For sop'ethtn'* like three vpa.rs we  neither saw nor heard .anvthlng of  each other. V.'hrther B"h had succeeded on the field to which he had  proceeded, wlien he had said "i^r-od-  bye" to me. or whether, as usual, he  had been left stranded, I could only  guess. My own life, on the other hand,  was uneventful In the extreme. From  morning till night I kept the station  books, served out rations to boundary  riders and other station hands, and.  In the intervals, thought of my old  life, and wondered whether It would  ever be my lot to set foot In England  again. So far T had h������'������n one of Fate's  failures, but though I did not know It,  t was nearer fortune's money bag then  than I had ever been in my life before.  The manager of Markapurlle was a  man named TJartrand, an upstart and  a bully of the first water. He had never  taken kindly to me nor I to him. Every  possible means that fell in his way of  annoying me he employed; and, If the  truth must be told, 1 paid his tyranny  back with interest. He seldom spoke  save to find fault; I never addressed  him except In a tone of contempt which  must have been-"infinitely galling to a  man of his suspicious antecedents.  That he was only waiting his chance  to rid himself of me was as plain as  the nose'upon his face, and for this  very reason I took especial care so  to arrange my work that it should always fail .to give him the opportunity  he desired. Tho crash, however, was  not to be avorted, and it came even  sooner than I expected.  One hot day, towards the end of  summer, I had boen out to one of the  boundary rider's huts with the month's  supply of rations, and, for the reason  that I had a long distance to travel,  did not reach the station till late In  the afternoon. As I drove up to the little cluster, of buildings beside the lagoon I noticed a small crowd collected  round the. store door. Among^ those  present I could distinguish tho manager, one'of tho overseers (ft man of  Bart rand'a own kidnsy, and therefore  bin -AiiQeiual cronxL two. or threji of  rrte TuTluIs, anB, as the reason or tnerr  pirsence there, what looked like the  body of a man lying upon the ground  at their feet. . Having handed my  horses over to the black boy at. the  stockyard, I strode across to see what  might be going forward. Something in  my heart told me!-'was'Vitally concerned in it, and bade me bo prepared  for anv emergency.  Reaching the group I glanced at. the  msn ui.iori the ground, and then 'almost shouted, my surprise aloud. He  was none other then Ben Garinan/ but  oh, how changed! His once stalwart  frame'Shrunk to half its'1 former, size,  his face was pinched and haggard to  a degree that frightened me, rind, as  j I looked, I itnew there could ^ be no  doubt about on thing, the man was as  ill as a man could well be and yet be  called alive.  Pushing the crowd unceremoniously  aside, 1 knelt down and spoke-to.him.  He was mumbling something to himself, aud evidently did not recognize  me.'     f  "Ben," I cried, "Ben, old man. don't  you remember Gilbert Pennethorne?  Tell me what's wrong witli vou, old  fellow."  But he only rolled his head and  muttered something about "five hundred paces north-west from the creek  and Just in a line with the blasted  gum."  Realizing that it was quite usoless  talking to him, and that if I wished to  prolong his life I must get him to bed  as soon as possible, I requested one  of the men standing to lend a band  and help me to carry him into my hut.  This was evidently the chance Bart-  rand wanted.  "To the devil, with such foolery," he  cried. "You, Johnstone, stand back and  let the man alone. I'll not have him  malingering here, I.tell'you. I know  his little game, and yours too, Pennethorne, and I warn you, if you take  him into your hut I'll give you the  sack that instant, and so you j-emem-  her what I say."  "But you surely don't want the man  to die?" I'cried, astonished almost beyond the reach of words at his barbarity. "Can't you see how: ill he is?  Examine him for yourself. He is delirious now, and if he's not looked to  he'll be dead in a few hours."  "And a good Job too," said the manager brutally. "For my part, I believe  he's only shamming. Any way I'm not  going to have him doctored here. If  he's as ill as vou say T'll send him up  to the Mail Change, and they can doctor him there."He looks as-if he had  enough money about him to pay Gibbs  his footing."  As Carman was in rags and his condition evidenced the keenest poverty,  this sally was treated as a fine Joke  by the overseer and the understrappers, who roared- with laughter, and  swore that they had never heard anything better in their lives. It rousod  my blood, however, to boiling pitch,  and I resolved that, come what might,  I would not desert my friend.  "If you send him away to the Mail  Change,",I cried, looking Bartrand  square in the eye, "where you hope  they won't take him in���������and, even If  they do, you know-they'll not take the  trouble to nurse him���������You'll be as  much a murderer as the man who  stabs another to the heart, and so I  tell you to your face."  Bartrand came a step closer to me,  with his fists clenched and his face  showing as white with passion as his  tanned skin would permit.  "You call me a murderer, you dog?"  he hissed. "Then, by God, I'll act up  to what I've been threatening to do  these months past and clear you off  the place at once. Pack up your traps  and make yourself scarce within an  hour, or, by the Lord Harry, I'll forget myself and take my boot to you.  I've had enough of your fine gentleman airs, my d-.uuly, and I tell you the  place will smell sweeter when you're  out of it."  I saw his dodge, and understood  why he had behaved towards Ben in  such a scurvy fashion. But not wanting to let him see that I was upset by  his behaviour. I looked him straight  In the face as coolly as-1 knew how  and said���������  "So you're going to get rid of me  because I'm man enough to want to  save the life of an old friend, Mr.  Bartrand, are you? Well, then, let me  tell you that you're a meaner bound  than even I took you for. and that Is  saying a great deal. However, since  you wish me to be off I'll go."  "If you don't want to be pitcrd into the Creek yonder you'll go without  giving- me any more of your 'in" he  answered. "I tell you I'm standing Just  about all I can carry now. If we  weren't in Australia, but across the  water in some countries I've known,  you'd have been damrlins: from that  gum tree over yonder bv this time."  I psM'no attention to" th's throat,  but. still keeninn' "s calm p" t nossiblv  could. reques*-od him to inform me if  I w������s to consider mvself discharged.  "You bet vou pre" pnitf he. "and  I'll not he hi������ ���������)" t'll I've seen your  brf-V on the Bn"rr rMsre vond������r."  "Then." said I. "T'll eb without more  words. But I'll trouble you   for    my  cheque beiftvre I do so.   Also   for   a  mouth's wages in lieu of notice."  Without answering-he stepped over  Ben's prostrate form and proceeded  into the store. I went.to my hut and  rolled up my swag. This done, I returned to tho office, to find them hoisting Ben into the tray buggy which was  to take him to the Mail Change, twenty miles distant. The manager stood  in the verandah with a cheque in his  hand. When I approached he handed  It to me with an ill concealed grin of  satisfaction on his face.  "There is your money, and I'll have  your receipt," he said. Then, pointing  to a heap of harness beyond the verandah rails, he continued, "Your riding  saddle is yonder, and also your pack  saddles and brldlos. I've sent a black  boy down for your horses. When they  come up jou can clear out as fast as  you please. If I catch you on the Run  again look out, that's all."  "I'll not trouble you, never fear," I  answered. "I have no desire to see  you or Markapurlle again as long as I  live. But before I go I've got something to say to you, and I want these  men to hear it. I want them to know  that I consider you a mean, lying,  contemptible mui'decer. And, what's  more, I'm going to let them see me  cowhide you within an inch of your  rascally Ufa"  .

The latter wns berating  the Yankees for doing all manner of  business in their shops and not following the better English' plan of sticking  to one brunch.  The next day he swaggered into the  barber shop to be shaved. Tho burlier  gave his face an extra good soaping  and left him, at the same time seating  himself to read.  The Englishman kept quiet for a few  minutes, when, seeing his attendant  reading, he blurted out, "Why don't  you shave me. sir,?"

DOCTOR'WANTED  TO  AMPUTATE  Woman's Toe Saved by Zam-Buk  But for the timely arrival of a box  of Zam-Buk,  Mrs.   K.  F.   Fonger.  34  Myrtle St., St. Thomas,  Out.,  would  have  lost her toe.    She says:    "For  about nine months I suffered cruelly  from tire effects of having a corn removed from my little toe, for with its  removal a hole remained and my toe  was in a terrible state.   For months I  was unable to wear 'a shoe and as the  toe showed "no signs  of healing and  was in such a shocking condition the  Doctor thought it necessary to amputate it. About this time I received a  sample box of Zam-Buk and began using it on my toe. The first application  gave me the greatest ease from pain  and encouraged me to give Zam-Buk  a thorough trial.    Two months after  commencing with Zam-Buk there was  no sign of a hole for the flesh had  grown in very firmly and all soreness  and  pains  were    entirely    banished.  Zam-Buk brought about this healing  when all other remedies failed."

Found Shot After Writing Pathetic^  Letter to Sweetheart.;  A romantic story hangs round the  determined suicide of George Rusaam,  a Birmingham, Eng., youth' of 17,  who shot himself and then- jumped  into a place known as the "Devil's  Pit."  Inside his watch were found three  photographs. On the back of one was  written: "I love you; don't be a flirt  like your sister." -   .    ���������  Since Easter, according to his lath-,  er, the lad had been flirting with the  daughter of a nextrdoor neighbor, but  Mr. Russam disapproved of the attachment* and. a few days before the  tragedy he had given his son'a thrashing.  Next day the lad decided to leave  home, and actually took lodgings, but  he changed his mind and made peace  with  his father '      ,   ,  Getting up at the usual time, he left  home witli the intention of goin*j to  his employment, but instead he visited his sweetheart, who was ill in bed.  After remaining a few minutes he  left the girl, and was not seen again  by any of his friends. '  By the last post the same night tho  girl received a long letter, commencing, "My dearest Nellie," and continuing :  "I write you this letter, which will  be the last which you or anyone else  will receive from me. I cannot stand  this uny longer, and if my father and ,  mother say that you are to blame it  is a lie."  He hinted that he was about to take  his life, and added:  "Perhaps it is for the best that I  am gone, as I dare say my parents  will be content to know that I am  not with you."  A seven-chnmbered rpvolvw was  found'beside Russam's body. Five  cartridges had misfired, but two of  the shots had taken effect.  A Ranking Theory.

The hopelessness of the British public ever becoming reconciled to the  I idea of a tunnel under the Channel  moves Mr. Lloyd-George, the" President of the Board of Trade to advocate a Channel car ierry between Dover and Calais. The wonder is, considering the need for it, that the project has been so long delayed.  It is only about twenty miles from  Dover to Calais.    While the Channel  bears a bad reputation because of its  choppy currents, it offers no serious  obstacles  to the   operation   of   train  ferry-boats.     Across   Lake   Michigan  there is a 63-mile railroad ferry .from  Frankfort, Mich., to Kewaunee, Wis.,  where each  boat  carries 24  cars on  lour parallel tracks.    The boats  are  designed to break their way through  ice.   Railroad trains are regularly ferried across the Straits of Mackinaw in  spite of tremendous ice gorges. There  is another car ferry across Lake Erie.  The Russian Government maintained  a car ferry 23 miles in length - across  Lake  Baikal on   the   Trans-Siberian  Railroad,   and  has only  lately, built  tracks around the lake.  _ There is no reason known to practical   railroading   why   the   traveler  leaving  England    for" the  Continent  should be forced to change cars between London and the Mediterranean.  But it is not merely as a convenience  to  travelers  that a ferry across  the  British Channel is urged.   The economics effected in the moving of freight  and   especially  of   perishable   goods  would  be enormous.   Part land and  part water traffic, with double loading and unloading is slow and expensive.

C, IJils 11th day of  rjecumbor, MOT.  21 .IAME3 V. OUNNINOHAM.  Ax Act to Amend the Municipal  Clauses Act lis now in course .of  passage through tlie' legislature.  Clause 10-th should satisfy even  the most careful purchaser of wood  Here is the clause, which gives tlie  municipality power to enact almost  unlimited powers;: "To regulate  the mode of sale and delivery of  cordwood. including cord wood  brought into the city from outside  the corporate limits, and to require  all cordwood sold to be delivered  in vehicles with racks so measured  and adjusted as to contain a cord  of wood, and for compelling the  delivery by the seller to the purchaser of a ticket correctly stating  the measure supplied, and for compelling measurement at the city  market by an official, and payment  of a reasonable fee, and the giving  of tickets of measurement, and for  the marking of such cordwood, and  for the keeping of records by such  official, and for regulating the  mode of loading cordwood on vehicles ; and for providing penalties  for obliterating or defacing the  mark placed on cordwood by any  official, or the alteration or destruction of any ticket, and the  breach of any regulation.''' If the  foregoing is not sufficient the purchaser has the privilege, barring  certain restrictions in the criminal  code, of forcibly taking possession  of the wood.          Diuixci the past year the work  of tho Board of Trade has been  very satisfactory, indeed, considering the support received from  the business men of the city, and  much credit is due Mr. Russell, the  retiring president, for this untiring  efforts in endeavoring to make the  board a live one. A board of  trade is intended to represent, protect and increase the earning  power of every dollar invested in  the community, and every dollar-  invested should be represented at  its meetings. Business men are  in Greenwood for tho sole purpose  of making dollars. An organization intended to assist in attaining  this oi'ject should be enthusiastically supported by all the dollar  makers. The more varied the  interests represented at its meetings, the wider will bo the scope of  its influence. The membership  fee to the board is only $5. The  business man who cannot afford  to pay ������.) a year to meet once a  month with other business men  to discuss qtistionH of vital interest  to all, is not making a very great  effort to protect-- on increase the  earning power of'the dollars which  he lias invested in the city. You  ���������rnay not bo'in payor, of all -the  schemes brought-forward by -;tlie  board, but yditr" presence at /the  meetings might brpadofi Cits Ade-'  liberations and bring out.some jicw  idea that would materiallyassist in'  making the whole. ..community,  more prosperous The . boarcV is  not a social or political organization, but a number of nicn associated together, representing business interestf) in which dollars are  invested, and with the sole aim of  increasing the general prosperity  in order that the earuiug power of  their invested dollars will also increase. The man with the few  dollars is as much interested in  the general' prosperity as the man  with the many, and should do his  share of the work.  Wk repeat that we know neither  the facts noi-- the law bearing upon  the failure of a judge of the  supreme court to be present at Nelson when ono wan expected ; but  we do know that tho public is getting heartily sick of certain performances in connection with the  administration of justice in this  province. Wu also know that the  members of t-lie supremo court are  public servants paid to. work for  tho public, and as such they are  liable to criticism, which in the  case of some of them has been  withheld so that public 'confidence  may not be further -weakened than  can be avoided.���������Colonist.

M. .r/Henry's annual sceed test  is now in progress at his nurseries  near Vancouver. At his.greenhouhe  samples of seed taken from each  consignment as they arrive from his  growers in Holland, Franco, California and 'Washington, are carefully planted, labelled and numbered, showing from'which grower  it was received, and the germination  noted, so as lo be absolutely sure  of their vitality before shipping  out to his customers. He has also  imported a reeleaning "mill for  grass and grain seeds and so far  his seeds havo been up 25 aud  above the government standards  as to vitality and freedom from  weed seeds. Renders should bear  this in placing their orders for  spring planting. As a report  came out in one of the eastern  papers last fall that '-coast trees  would not stand the cold climate  of the upper country." Mr. Henry  was pleased to receive an unsolicited letter from one of his customers near Vernon who planted  2,000 of his trees in the fall of  1000. These passed through the  extreme cold winter" of 1000 07  and the report was "all growing  and thrifty except half-a-dozen injured mole--'."
