Notwithstanding the fact  that public meetings and labor conventions have been held thete ia still but  the one candidate in   the field���Wm.  i  Fernie. -���  A convention of the delegates from  the labor unions of South East Kootenay was held at Fcrnie last Tuesday  The object of the convention was to  either put an independent labor candidate in the field or'endorse a man  outside their ranks who , would be  favorable to" them.    The'Moyio Miners  i " '     iO .  Union was represented by , two delegates���D. J. Elmer and D. E. .McDonald.  Mr. Elmer went as an aspirant  for political honors. Last Sunday  evening tbe' union held a special  meeting and endorsed him,, and asked  that in the event of a labor candidate  being put in the field that -his name  be mentioned. A petition,attesting to  the good reputation of Mr. Elmer was  circulated among the business men of  the town, who were asked to pledge  Fzyrw ^-^.v*;^-. ,j^^a^^:^ ^tt^t^ i^v [themselves to support him in case  he  MtCANAMAN  H-!"-'iSSi**',}f  ���y  Ml OF COMMERCE.  !.- y&tSmPaid, Up Capital, $6,000,000.

Monday evening a   public   meeting  was   held   and   McGregor   hall,, was  crowded.    Amongst     the     Assembly  j-   was   a   good   sprinkling   of   Miner's  Union   men'r   Political   matters   were  discussed   quite   freely.    The  general  sentiment was that while the people of  ���Moyie were perfectly willing to support  a labor candidate, the}' were not favorably disposed towards   the'  man   the  Miner's   Union   had     selected.    The  name' of   D.   E.   McDonald, another  member of the union, was brought up.  Mr! McDonald  was   favorably  poken  of and it was decided to draft a memorial and have it presented at the  'Fernie convention favoring his nomination'. Thirty signatures were appended, solely voters, and mostly [  business men, and a' few Miner's  Union men.  J. M. Lindsay was appointed to go  to Fernie and present' the petition to  the oonventidh. When Mr. 'Elmer  saw that the people were not favorably  disposed towards him be withdrew  from the race.

" ' Wha wiiJ I say rent thc chopfe?' hc  asks, I considcied"a minute, and then I  says, 'Tell her,' I says, 'that it is frae a  well-wisher.'  "'JLhe.-e -wore,, my last words to D.

It was Tlnegnrt's v.'ay, when ,hc told  his story, to pause now and again for  eomments, and this was a. point where  wc'all wagged our heads, the question  U-iiiK whether his assumption of tho  character of a well wisher was not a  clear proof ot humor. "That there was  .humor in it." Haggarfe would say, when  summing up, "I can now see, but compared to what was to follow, it was nci-  thi:r here nor there. My humor at that  'time wns like a laddie trying to open a  i.riif gate, and even when it did squeeze  past, thc gate closed again with a snap.'  Ay, Jads, just listen, and yo'll hear how  it came about as the gate opened wide,,  never to close again."  "Ye liad thc stuff in yc, though,"  Lookaboutyou would say, "and therefore,  I'm of opinion tliat ye've been a humor,  ist frae the   cradle."  ".Little you   ken   about   it,"   Ilnjcgarfc  would   an.-wer.    ".\'o   doubt   1   had the  materia!    rf    humor   in   'mo, but?-it,was  raw.

Ye're richfc, Tamiuas."'  "Wcel, then, it's the same with humor.  Considering me as a humorist,   ye micht  say that when my   travels   began   I had  put myscl' ou the fire to boil-"  that Haggart fphuhed more than was  rii-rrs*.;'.ry, J may u-rh.ips express regret  that he never saw his way to clearing up  certain disputed p-.*.*r.tres in his wanderings. I would, 1 I-.now, be ill-t]iout*;ht of  among the friends who survive him if I  stated for a fact that he never reached  London. There was a, general wish that  ha should have taken London in liis  travels, and if Ilaggart had a weakness  it was his reluctance to disappoint an  audience, I must own that he trod down  his eom-fleld pretty thoroughly before  his hand touched the corn-stalk called  London, ,and that his London reminiscences never seemed to me to have quite  the air of reality that filled his .re-jolW-  tions of Edinburgh. Admitted that hc  confirmed glibly as an' eye-witness the  report that London houses have no gardens (except at the back), it remains  undoubted that Cr-aiglebuckle confused  him with, the question:��� ,  ' "What do they charge in London for  half-a-pound of boiling beef and a penny  bone?-"  Haggart answered, but, after "a pause,  as if, he had forgotten toe price, which  scarcely seems natural. However, I do  not say that he was never in London,  and certainly his curious adventures in it  are still retailed, especially one with an  ignorant policeman who could not tell  him which was the road to Thrums,  and another with the doorkeeper of thc  Ifou-T-e of Parliament,1 who, on being  asked by Haggart "How much was to  pay?" foolishly -answered. "What you  please."  But though 1 heartily approve the  feeling in Thrums against thoso carping  critics who would slice bits off the statue  which wo may be said to have reared to  Haggart's'- memory, some of the stories  now fondly cherished are undoubtedly  mythical. For instance, whatever Lookaboutyou may say, I do not believe that  Huggart once flung a clod of earth at the  Pope. It is perfectly true that some such  story got abroad, but if countenanced by  Haggart it was only because Chirsty had  her own reasons for wanting him to  ,stand well with the'AuldLicht minister.  Often Haggart was said in 'liis own presence to have , had adventures in such  places as   were   suddenly   discovered   by  CHAPTER IV.

In  that time hc journeyed through at least  ono country, unconsciously absorbing  ever*, thing that his conjurer's wand'  could turn to humor when the knack  came to him. This admission ho has  himsi-ll signed in conversation.  ".\y," he said, "I was like a blind  beggar in these days, and the dog that  led me by a string was my impulses."  Most, of us let this, pass,' with the re-  lloction that Haggart could not havo said  it iu his pre-huinorous days, but Snccky  Hobart put in hi.s word.  ' Y'e were hardly like the blind beggar," he said, "for ye didna carry a  tanker for folic to put bawbees in."  rinccky- explained afterwards that he  only spoko to give Haggart an opportun  ity. It was, indeed, tho way of all of us,  when wo saw an opening, to coax Tarn-  mas into it. Ho sportsmen of another  kind can point out the hare to thoir  dogs, and confidently await results.  " Ye'ro wrung, Snecky," replied Haggart.  As over, before shoot ing . his bolt, ho  then, paused. His .mouth, was, open, and  lie had the '"appearance of a man hcarkon  ing..intensely for some Communication  ft om below. There wore those who went  the length of hinting that on those occasions ���.���something insido jumped to his  mouth and told'him what to say. ,  "Yes, rinooky," ho said at last, "yo'ro  ,,i/ing. My ''mouth wits the tanker, and  the folk Iiiwt had all to pay toll, as!yo  may say, for they dropped things into  my mouth that my humor turns to as  nuioklo.. account as though they were  bawbees.  I'm nd sure���"  ".There's no many things yo'ro no sure  of, Tomnias." ,  ."And this' is no ono of them. It's just  a. form of expression, and if yc interrupt  mo again, Snecky Hobart, I'll saya- sarcastic thing about you that instant. What  I. was to say was that I'm no sure but  what a humorist swallows ��� everybody  whole that ho falls in with."  The i in possibility of telling -everything  that befell Haggart in his wanderings is  best proved in his own, words:���  ' "My adventures," ho, said; "was so  surprising thick that when I cast thorn  over in my mind I'm like a man in a  corn-liold, and every stalk of corn an  adventure.' Lads, it's uselosss to expect  mo to give you the history of ilka ptulk.  I wrax out my loft hand, and I grip  something, namely, an adventure;, or I  wrax out my right hand and grip something, namely, another adventure. Well,  by keeping .straight on in. ony direction  wo Wade through adventures till wo get  out of tho hold, that is to say, till wo  land back at Thrums. Yo Ray my adventures sounds different ou different nichts.  Precisely, for it all depends on which  direc'tion I splash off in."  Without going   tho   longth  us in the newspaper.**,- places that had  acquired a public interest, say, because  of,a murder; and'then he neither agreed  ( that he had been there nor allowed that  he had not. Thus it is reasonable to believe that his less discriminating admirers  splashed out of Haggart's corn-field into  some other body's without noticing that  t-hey had crossed the dyke.' His silence at  those times it a little aggravating to his  chronicler now, but-I would be tho first  to defend is against detractors. Unquestionably the length of time during which  Haggart would jmt his under lip over  the upper one. and so shut the door on  words, was one of tho grandest proofs  of his humor. However plentiful the  water in the dam may be, there aro occasions when it is handy to let down the  sluice.     '.    ,  I the more readily grant that certain  of the Haggart stories may have been  plucked from the,wrong fields, because  there still'rcmnin a sufficient number of  ' authenticated ones to fill the mind with'  rapture. A statistician could tell how far  they would reach round the world, supposing they were- represented by a brick  apiece, or how long ,they would take to  pass through a doorway on each other's  heels. Wo never attempted to count them.  Being only average men we could not  conveniently carry beyond a certain.number of the stories about with us, and  thus many would doubtless now be lost  were it not that some of us loaded ourselves with 911c lot and others with another. Each had his favorites, and Haggart supplied us with" tho article we  wanted, just as if be and we wore on  opposite sides of a counter. Thus when  wc discuss him now wo may have new  things to tell of him; nay,even the descendants of his friends aro worth listening to  on Haggart, for ��� the stories havo been  passed on from father to son.  Some enjoyed most his reminiscences  of how ho felt each time he had to cut  off another   button.  "Lads," he said, "I wasna unlike a  doctor. Ye mind Doctor Skene saying as  how. tho young doctors at the college  grow faint like at .first when thoy saw  blood gushing, but by and by they became so michty hardy that tliey could  off with a leg as cool as though thoy  wore just hacking sticks?"  "Ay, hc said that.'"'  "Wool, that was my sensations. WThen  I cut off tho first button it waa like  sticking the knifo Into rmysel', and I  did it in the dark because I hadna the  heart to look on., Ay, the next button  was a stiff job, too, but after that I grew  what yc may^call .hard-hearted, and it's  scaroo going beyond the truth to say that  tlmo'camo when I had a positive pleasure  in sending tho siller flying. I dinna ken,  thinking the thing out calmly now, but  what . I was like u wild beast drunk  with blood."  "What was the most yo ever spent in a  week?"  "I could tell   yo   that,    but   I   would  rather yo wanted to ken   what   was   tho  most I ever spent in a nicht."  "How muckle?"  '' Trv a gi less.''  "Two, shillings:-''  ,    "Twa shillings!" cried   Haggart, with  ' a -contempt that would havo   boon severe  had tho coins   boon   pennies; "Say,   sax  shillings is!nearer the mark."  .'.   "In ono nicht?" ���  7   "Ay, in 0110 single,nicht."   ���'-., ������'������'  '��� Yo must have lost some of it?"  "Xot a'bawbee..

What do ye say  to a shilling and^saxpenco for u bed?"  "I say it was an intake."  "Of course it was, but I didna grudge  it."'   '������"���"���-.,'  "Ye didna?"        ,..''���  "No, I didna.

Lads,    I   was   a  sort of wearying for Chirsty."  "Ay, but   there's   four   shillings , and  saxpsnee to account for yet."  "There is so.

There was  no chairs in it except great muckle saft  ones, a hantlo flatter than a chaff bod,  and ' in il'*'- chair sqmo nobleman or  other with his feet up in the air. Ay, I a  sort of slipped the first time I tried a  chair, but I wasna to be beat, for thinks  I, 'Lords yo may bc, but I have paid ono  and sax for my bed as wool as you, and  this nicht I'll bo a lord too!' Keeping  tho one and sax before 1110 mado mo bold,  and soon .1 was sprawling in a chair  of . saying'withmy legs sticking, ower the arm with  the best of them.-   Ay, it wasna so much  enjoyable as awe-inspiring.'"  "lhat just brings yo up   to   twa shill-  l:i j."-."  ' Wecl, there was another   one and sax  for t)-<*-ikfa*r."  ������A-toumling!"  "Oh, a h,i\er, of course, but we got as  muckle as wo liked, and I assure ye it's  {li-.azing how much ye can eat, when ye  Iron ye havo lo pay for it at' ony rate.  Then < here was ninopence for a luncheon."  "What's that?"  '"1 didna   ken    mysel'    when   I   heard  them speaking   about ,it,   but it turned  out to be a grand name for a rabbit."     ,  "Man, is there rabbits in Edinburgh?"  "Next there was threepence of   a present to the waiter-loon,- and I   finished up  with a shilling's worth of   sangwiches."  "Xa, that's just iWe and saxpence." '  Haggart, however, would   not   always  tell how the   remaining   sixx>enco   went.  At first ho admitted   having   squandered  it ou the theater, but after he was Landed  by Chirsty in   tho   Auld,   Lichr-   kirk he  withdrew   this   reminiscence,    and' put  another sixpence-worth in the - sinoking-  ro'.ni in its place.  As a convincing proof of the size of  Edinburgh, Haggart could tell us how  he lu*t his first lodgings in it. They  were next house to a shop which had a  gre.'it show of vegetables on .a board at  the door, and. Haggart trusted to this  shop as a landmark. When he returned  to the street, however, thero were greengrocery shops everywhere, and after asking at a number of doors if it was here  he lived, he gave up the search. This experience has been paralleled in later days  by a Tilliedrum minister, who wont for  a holiday' to London, and forgot tho  name'of tlie hotel ho was staying at; so  he telegraphed tor.Tilliodrum to his wifo,  asking her,to toll him what' add'ros-', he  hail given hero when hc wrote,, and she  telegraphed back to him to come home  at once.  Liko all the great .towns Haggart  visited, Edinburgh proved to be running  with low characters, with whom, as well  as with tho flower of thc -place���for ho  was received everywhere���hc had many  strange adventures. Ifis affair with the  bailie would'make a long .story itself, if  told in full as he told it; also what he  did to the piper; how he climbed ..up the  Castle rocks for a wager; why ho ' once  marched indignantly out of a church ih  thc middle of the singing; the circumstances in which he cut off his sixth button; his'horoic defense of ahidy who had  been attacked by a footpad; his adventures with the soldier who was in love  and had a silver snuffbox; his odd meeting with James Stewart, lawful king of  Great BriEain and Ireland. With .this  personage, between whom and n throne,  there, only stood thc constables,. Haggart  of Thrum*; hobnobbed 011 equal tonus:  The way they mot was this. Haggart was  desirious of the sensation of driving in a  carriage, but grudged much outlay on  an experience that would soon .be over.  Ho accordingly opened the door of a  street vehicle and stepped in, when the  driver was not looking. They had a pleasant drive along famous Princes street and  would probably have g��no farther had  not Haggart become aware that someone  was hanging on behind. In his indignation ho called the driver's attention to  this, which led to his own eviction. Thc  hanger-on proved to bc 110 other than the  hapless monarch, with whom Haggart  subsequently broke a button., For a king,  James Stewart, who disguised his royal  person-in corduroys, was, as Haggart  allowed, -very ill in order. Thc spite of  tho authorities had crushed . that once  proud spirit, and darkened his intellect,  and ho took his friend to a gambling  house, where ho nodded to the proprietor.

acres which falls upon the whole during two seasons in the year.   If it fails,
there ig a failure, of crops over the entire area.   In this country no drought
