CHAPTER I.  According to rhose who  h.ivc   chonsht  the   ihing over, it would defy tlio fi>(r'ol  clay to *er fortli thi^ jn-oiliyinus   aif.'iir of  Tillyioss, the   un^hoD   of,-which v,*as ih.il  Tnuimns Hagrfrart; Iwranie a hiunorisr.   It  happened so far back   as  the hong Year,  so   called    by   reason   of   dif=<��T��e   in rtie  putaro   crop; and   douhtless   tlie   lioiisc.  which prill   brands,    derides   i-omanco  ro  those who cavil ntj an outside si air.   Furthermore, the many who only knew Hag-,  xrart. in his later years, wherhpr jiersoiml-  Jy or   Through   written   mart it   or from  Thrums folk who have Traveled,  will not  ivadiiy admit   that   lie   may   once  have  be'6n an cvery-day   man,    There   js   .-jJho  rtgHinst   mo   rho   vexing   jwactice ol tho  farmer   of   Lookabontyou,    wlio      never  juib-ses Tillyioss, if there   is   a   friend  of  mine.within esrshor,   without   saying:���  " Gravestone or no graves fane, Tamnms  I higgarr, would have been   a   limnorisr."

Even   Lunnn's   srout-  noss, which   was   a   landmark in itself,  could not save him.  The passage between  hi* counter and the wall   was   so narrow  and ihe rest of his shop   so  full of goods  that before customers could  enter Lit nan  bad to como out,   but   in   this quandary  his dignity   never left   him.    Ho   always  declined to join the company  who might  be, listening on  the   stair   ro   Tammas's  adventures,   but   <ame   say   he. was not  above hearkening   through a hole in one  of the steps.'  The exact date of Haggarr's departure  cannot be determined, though it was  certainly iu the back end of the year  18S4. He had then been married ro  Christy a little short of three years. His  age would be something beyond thirty,  but he never, knew his birthday, hud ' 1  have heard him say that one of the few  things lie could not understand was how  tho relatives of a person deceased could  know tho precise ago to send to tlie j  newspapers. <  Wlmt, is, however,   known   for   certain  is that, Tainmas's adventures began within a week of tho burial of old 31r. YuilJ,  tlie parish minister.    There   had   been a  ro-do about who should preach   the   funeral sermon, two ministers having wdrds  over ir, and   all    Thrums   knowing that  Xuill had left fii'\en   pounds   to,  the  preacher.   At this time Haggurt did   not  belong   to tlio Aidd Lielits, nor  .was   he  even regular in   his   attendance   .-it,   the  parish   church,    but   the   dispute   about  the funeral sermon interested him greatly, and when he heard ihni.   the   session  was   meeting   to   decide   The   Affair,   he  MEN   OF   MARK  An  iiscnt   of  Colli*   I'  .onil'iii  with a  Ihe  Huntington  is  view to buying some  iiio��t piizi'd pictures in the exhibit  new giilli'iy.  ;e (JotilJ, who has the fox hunting  lias just purchased outlines! und  largest packs  England,  '.���.jvcriiur Longino, the chief executive  nj' Mississippi, is not -14 years old.

Governor Xash of Ohio is nn authority  on-tho history of that state, which he  has made a .lifelong study. His library  of wo:-!.., on this subject is probably the  largest and most valuable extant.  King Humbert of Italy has sent to  Huron Saverio Fava, the Italian embassador at   Washington,  the grand  cordon  ' t-nuiip to gloss over this admission, ns  incredible on rhfl face of it, bur, that, was  in his last years, when , he had become  Vomerhing of a show, and was in a puzzle  about himself. Of the several reasons he  gave me in proof ,of n, non-humorous  period in his 'life the following seem  .   woithy of especial attention:���    '    -  First, that for some years after his  marriage he had never thought of himself  as more nicely put together than other  ' men. He could nor, say for certain  whether he had ever thought of himself  ct all, His loom taking up so much of  his time.  Second, that Christy was able to aggravate him by saying That if which was  which she would have- married James  IMtbladdo.  Third, that   he   was   held   of little account'by the neighbors, who spoke of his  ���    living   "above   Lunan"s     shoppy,"   but  never localized tlie shop as   '-below Hag-  g.irt.'s house."  Fourth, That while on his wanderings  he experienced certain novel and singular sensations in his inside, which were  probably his humor trying to force a pas-  .-vige.  Fifth, that in the great scene which  ended his wanderings, his humor burst,  Its banks like a dam, and had flowed in  burnn ever since.  During nearly,forty years wo contrived  now and again to-  harness   Tiimmns   to  his story, but often he would stop at the  dilliculty of realizing tho   man   he must  .   have   been    in   his   pro-humorous   days.  ' and remark, in his   sarcastic, way,    that'  rhe one Haggart, could   not   fathom   the  , other.  Thus our   questionings sometimes  endea in silence, when   we.nll   looked in  trouble at the lire and then   went home.  As for starring him on   tho   story   when  he was not in   the   vein,   like   breasting  the brae ngainst a high wind.  When the events happened I  was 'only  a lad.    1   cannot   send my mind hack lo  .  the time   when    I   could   pass   Haggurt  wirhout   the     side-glance     nearly     all  Thrums   offered   to   his   reputation, and  -   In* is best pictured hunkering at Tillyioss,  <mo of a row of his admirers.  After eight  o'clock ic was the pleasant custom of tho  weavers to sit in the open against a house  or dyke, their knees near their chins and  their ears ��� ready for Haggart.    Then   bis  face would be contracted in pain as some  strange idea bothered him and he searched  for its   humorous   aspect.    Perhaps   ten  minutes afterwards   his    face   would expand, he would slap   his    knees, and we  knew that trie, .struggle was over.    It was  one of Ins ways, disliked at the time, yet  admired on reflection, not to take us into  the.   secret of his   laughter; but   he usually ended by looking whimsically in the  direction of   the   burying-ground,    when  we were perfectly aware of the   source of  ihe joke,- and those   of   us nudged  each  other who wore   not   scared.     CJm.il   ihe  spell was broken we   might   sib  thus for  ihu spaco of a quarter of an   hour, none  .-peaking, yet iu the completest sympathy,  because   we   were   all   thinking   of  the  same thing, and that a gravestone.  Tillyioss is three broken rows of bouses  in the east end of Thrums, with gardens  l.^twcen them, nearly every one of which  used to contain a pig-sty.  There are other  ways of   getting   into   the   gardens than  by windows, for those who are   sharp at  knowing a gate when ir. looks like muiio-  ihing else. ' Three   or four oilier   hou>��(>>  fctand iu odd corners, blocking the narrow  road,    which   dodges   through   Tillyioss  like a hunted animal.    Starting from the  west   end   of   the   suburb,   as Tillyioss  will be called as soon as   we can   wiy tho  woid without smirking,   tho road cl'hnb.-  htraight. from tho highway to   the uppermost row, where it runs against   a   two-  story house.  Here wo leave it. as many a  curious stranger has   done,   to get out of  Tillyioss the best way   ic   can,   for  that  Two-storied house ia where Turamiw Haggart lived, up the outside stair,   tho west  room.  Tammae flitted to tho Tenements a  year after he beoara* a humorist, and it  is un extraordinary tribute to his memory thnt tho road \* nn the pump to hl��  old residence in '1 i lyloss is still called  Haggart's Itoady. Many persons have in-  habitod his room since, he left it, but  though tho younger ones hold out for  an individuality of their own,' the gray-  beards still allow that It is Haggart's  homo. To thin day Tillyioss residents  asked for a landmark to their dwellings  may reply,    .      ' '���,..-  "I'm sax houses frae Kaggart's," or  "Onybody   can   point   out  Haggart's  stair to you. Ay, weel, gang to that, and  then come back three doors."       ,  The entrance to Lunan's shop, was  beneath Haggart's stair, which provided  a handy retiring place in wet weather.  Lunan's personality . had the enormous  advantage of a start;,1 of Tammas's, as has  been seen, yet Haggart lias practically  swallowed Lunan, who in his more crab-'  bed age scowled at, tho sight-seers that  came to look at the second story of the  house and ignored the shop.,. As boys we  envied, more than learning, the companion whose father kept a shop, and I  remember Lunan's son going with his  /Jst for tho bankers son who-���though   he  the same errand, all of whom noticed,  though ihey little thought ic would give  litem a tonne to their dying day,' that  Haggart had on his topcoat. It had been  an old one of Mr. Yuill's, presented to  Taminas, who could not till it, but refused to Lave it altered, out of respect to  the'minister's memory, It-has also been  fondly recalled of Tannnns that he was  only shaven on Tho one side, as if Chirsry  had sent him to the meeting in a, hurry,  and That he had not the. look of a ma'n  who was that, very night to 'enter upon  experiences which would confound The  world.  "It was an impressive spectacle,"  Snecky Hobarc said subsequently, "lo  see Tammas discussing the' burial sermon, just as keen as me and T'nowhead  and then to think, that within rwenty-  fotn- hours the very ministers themselves  would be dismissing him. '���  , '��� He said to me it had been a dowie  day,"    T'nowhead always remembered.  '���He shoved mo when he was crushing  in nearer rhe door," was Header Robbie's boast.  '���But he took a snuff out of my mull."  '���Muybo he did, but I was the last he  spoke to. Ro said, 'Weel, Dan'l, I'll be  stepping   back to Tilly.' "  '���Ay, bub I passed liim at the Tenements, and he says, 'Davit,' he says, and  1 says, 'Tammas.' "'' .,  '���Very like; but, I was carrying a ging  of water frae Susie Linn's pump, and  Tammas said would 1 give him n drink,  the-which 1 did.''  '"Lads, I'm"no sure but what I noticed  a far-away look in Tammas's face, as if  there was something on his mind."  ������If ye did, Jeames, Te keut it to your-'  soP."  "Ay, but I meant to mention it when  I got ha me.'"  "How did yc no, then!J"  "How does a body no do many a  thing? I dinna say I noticed the look,  but just that; I'm no sure but what I  noticed it "  So we nil did our best to recall Haggart's last words and looks on that  amazing evening, even the Auld Licht  minister, who cared little for popularity,  claiming as a noticeable thing to have  walked behind Tammas and observed  that his handkerchief was hanging, out  of his north pocket. But chough all theso  memories have their value as relics, we  have Tammas's own word for it that  from the time che reached the session  house until his return to Tillyioss lie felt  much as usual.  "Ay," he would say in his impressive  way, "many a thing may happen between the auchcand the ten-o'clock bells,  but I told neither T'nowhead nor Snecky  nor none of them as onything was to  happen that nicht."  ,"Yo did not, Tammas; na, ua, for if  ye had I would have heard ye, me being  there."  "Ay, but ye couldna say my reason for  no telling ye?"  "Na."

The Brazilian seemed greatly disturbed, and from }  thenctions of, his companions it was eyi- l  dent they felt unaccountably alarmed.  "Senhor," exclaimed the former hastily,  "we are .without-news, and we beg that  you   -ill enlighten us-at once."  "News of what?" was the American's  puzzled reply.    "I am sure I"���  "Then there is no war?" broke in the  soldier. "  '"Not in this part of the world."  "But you tired?"  The Wilmington's representative stifled  his desire to laugh and gravely explained  the gunboat's presence and her well  meant com-fesy in expending so much  powder.      ' -.

It was always, a place of mystery. The inspector  sat at a that table at one end of tho room.  It was frequently covered with papers.  On the walls, in glass cases, were odds  and ends of criminology���bitsc of rope  that had hanged notorious murderers,  black caps, revolvers that had figured in  infainouB cases and other depressing objects.'  One day the inspector left a new reporter at his table and went ,iuto another room. lie was gone half au hour.  ���\Vhen he came back, the reporter said:  "Inspector, did you have me watched  while you were gone?"  "No.  Why?"  "There are some pretty .interesting papers on your desk, aren't there?"  "Nothing of any great value. Why do  you ask?"  "What was to prevent my reading  some of those , letters and getting a  mighty good 6tory for my paper?" asked  the reporter.  "Two reasons," answered the inspector.  "In the first place, I never leave a scrap  of   paper   on   my   desk   that   the   whole  world is not welcome to read.    Secondly,  you couldn't have touched a sheet without my knowing it.    Look nt that  penholder."  pointing to 11  cheap affair ��� laid  (.���tirelessly   across   n 'bundle' of   papers.  "Notice the direction in which it points.  One end points at that doorknob and the  other at'that blackcap."  Now, '.you never  would ha ve not iced that, but.-1 did- before.,  leaving the rdom.'niul if yon had touched;  a single paper you would'have'displaced',  that penholder, and I Avutikl .have known  it."���.Philadelphia     Saturday     lOveuing  Post.  ,       '.__   _______     '  Tho 'Similiter l-'rom  "Ueoruy."  -Down  in  t,;eorgy"-  said the stran  ,'ger with broild brimnied hat.

It  Is still more satisfactory to not? that riot-  with-itandins the exceptionally    heavy nre  , lostes which have occurred in some of the  chief cities in the United State*���where  the busine>s proved jjeneraUy unprofitable  to tlie companies engiice.l in it���we are'able  to show ns a reside of the year's transaction-; :i profit balance of S11S.612. The experience of tin- year ,1 SI<!��� in Canada was exceptionally favorable, and the ' diminished  lire wa<te In this country is certainly a  matter  for  cnii'-'ratuliuloii,   aside from  our  'interest* i'u the business of fire ia.-uran^c.  It is to l>e hoped that the introduction ot  improved lire protection in our cities and  towns, and the adoption of more substantial methods in the construction of buildings, will tend to a further reduction of  Hie biu-ilcn which the' payment of some  live million dollars per annum by insura-ice  companies for lire losses - in Canada Imposes upon the community, for I need  scarcely say thai this lias to" be provided  from the premiums collected from the iu-  suriiis public. 1 desire to emphasize whit  1 believe to be a fact���that It Is only, by  adopting measures ��� that will reduce this  serious annual waste that any material reduction la the tax which the puhUc pay In  -tire insurance premium:?, can he hrot^ht  abnul. for it is only nece.ssary to refer to  the Uovernnieiu ��� reports, showun* the income nnd expenditure of companies licensed to do business in the Dominion.to pr.ive  thru (hire has been, dm-ins the whole 10-  riod embraced in ihose returns, but a very  moderate marjrin of profit. 10 the companies at the rates and'under t lie conditions  which have prevailed in t.liis country In the  past.  In  this connection it. may  not be wit ��f  place to refer to ths fact that during th��  past year a humber, ->f new companies ha7��  come into the field, offering fire insurance  at_ lower rates than, those current with 1 h��  olci established oxikts. It will be Interesting to observe whether these experiments  wi'll piove more suecessful than previous  attempts which havr been made to afford  indemnity against loss by fire on more f��-'  vorable' terms than companies which hav��  been long encaged In the business feel saf��  ln offering. While a Insurers we may hop*  these new companlt may have discovered  the secret of combining cheapness wita  security, we cannot overlook the fact that  tlie record of the tiro insurance busine s la���  Canada during the ps.st twenty yeari'shjwa  11 loss of upwards of two million dulars cf  capital, which wits Invested in companies  organized to transact business at what'  are termed ������cut' rates." We may at least  feel assured that companies working upon  these lines, whose entire cash assets am  limbed to fifty or sixty thousand dollars,  are scarcely In a position to assume any  considerable share of the cmauy million*  of liability which fire Insurance coiiipaal��>*  are carrying for the protection of m-rclitnts  and property-holders in Canada;and until It  has been shown that,-with due regarl for  the safety of stockholder* and the security  of policyholders,. any material reductione  can be made ia fire insurance rates hi th,'*  I country, your directors do not feel warranted in advocating any departure frorn ,  the policy we have been following for -nany  years past.  Hut to return to the consideration ot ou? ������  business during the year under review,  it will, no doubt, be Interesting to shareholders to learn that tho marine branch,  which has been responsible in som* former,  years for rather serious losses,,., baa shown  a profit upon the business of lWMi. and (hat  the 'general outlook In this branch appear*  to be more promising than for some tlin��  pa<��t.  In  our earnings from Interest  there  Utu  been a  falling off, such as might naturally  be  looked for owing to  the reduced  ratea  obtainable,  particularly   upon", the  class of  securities  which are held by this company.  ,   There is one matter lo which I wish particularly  to refer at this time.'  It   u  novr  within a year of half a  century since  th��  I company   commenced  business   in   Canada.  ' Some   twenty-rlvc  years   ago   it   completed  I its svstem of agencies throughout the Unlt-  j ed States, and  I think 1 ~am-wa.rnrtited la  saying that it is rcow established over th��  ��� whole of the North American continent �����  |<a favorable fooling, with an' efficient 'fore*  1 of branch nianagers,si>ecial agents and local,  ' agents   working     in   Its     Interests. '  Cade*  these   circumstances   your   directors     hare  turned their attention  to the consideratlea  of thr question  of  the desirability of  following the example of the majority of the  successful British fire offices and- einbra.c'ng .  a larger field of operation* than we at present occupy.   In view of the efforts whlca,  are   being   made^���happily     with   no   small  .measure  of  success���to   enlarge, tho   trad*  relations between the mother country and  - her  self-governing   colonies,   and   to   cultt-  I vate intercolonial business connections.  "��*���  i have felt that the present is an oppo-tun*  j Lime for making a similar effort to moot*  I some measure of reciprocity in the bu.-in��as  < of fire issurance.   As a practical step in thl*  1 d'recrion,  it   wa.i   decided     to   establish   a',  i branch  office  of   the  company   la   Loado��,  ��� Kngland.
