 M'AHrtWj.,,  ._ V  7.^  *<�����> \  \t-.  VOLUME  IX.  NELSON, B.C., SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1905.  NUMBER 14  THE FUNNY MAN-  IN BUSINESS  A Reputation for Wit Means  Failure.  Give a man a reputation of being  funny and ruin him. is a paraphrase  ot the old adage which recently was  used by a prosperous friend of mine.  He is something of a wag and wit  himself, in a droll way���and lie declares that, in earlier life, hia unwelcome reputation as a funny man came  near ruining his life's prospects.  "I fled from my reputaLion and my  home town," he says, "aud I had $25-  000 in the bauk and an established  business before T dared crack a joke  again. In that period anyone who  laughed at1; anything I said was uiy  enemy."  He may have exaggerated tlie facts a  bit, but it is a notorious fact that tlie  "funny man" of the office, the shop,  factory, is usually the worst failure. It  pays to be funny only in books or on  the stage.  I have known scores of casesof funny  men who. have failed, men of bright  minds, quick .wits, clever tongues.  . They acquired reputations as wits and  were lost. Everybody laughed at them,  nobody took them seriously or wanted  to.employ them in any capacity. One,  1 remember, made a grand success,  after many failures, by getting a job as  atravelling salesman for a liquor house.  He was a good.eutertainer, a wit, and  a brilliant story teller, audi in that  line, they helped him dispose of goods  until he got funny with his employer  and was discharged.  He suddenly realized what was happening., He saw himself as others saw  him and the laugh palled on him. He  quit making puns. '. He settled down  to business. He ceased to ainuse street  coruer crowds of boys and worthless  fellows. He is president of a bank iu  one of the largest cities in the country.  The re reputation of. being funny is a  curse to most men. The moment they  become imbibed with the idea that they  are wags aud wits they begin to cultivate that turn of mind to the exclusion  of everything else���especially their  business duties. ��  There was a mau in a certain town  who, when about twenty-one years of  ^S__i_s___ddenlvQ^_^  uiarkable punster. At that time he  was employed in a bunk at a fair  salary. He cultivated tliat habit of  punning until it was reatly remarkable.  He could turn a pun on anything or  everything, and he became the villago  rest. Inside of three months he was  discharged from the bank as worthless  and was looked upon with ti species of  con tempt all over town. He was tlie  hor_e block comedian. His wit was  of the livery stable style.  Probably it is the sweetness of the  applause of those around them thut  spoils the funny men. Their friends  roar over their witticisms and tell them  they ought to be on the stage, forgetting that tbe man who is funny in the  olubor in the bar room seldom is funny  in the theater, and that the funniest  men ou the stage usually ure staid,  sober men of the boards.  Also, it is an odd fact lhat the men  who laugh loudest at the bright sayings aud quick repartee of the " funny  man" are the ones who turn them  down when they seek work.  "I'd like to do something for bim/'  said a friend of mine to whom I appealed in behalf of another friend.  "But I can't use him in this business.  He is too funny. He would waste time  1 being funny for the benefit ofthe other  employees, and it is probable that he  couldn't resist trying to be funny nt  the expense of the-customers."  He didn't get the job���although,  barring his wit, he was the best man  available for the position.  It is ielated  that Bill  Nye often  spoke, late in his life, of his gift of rare  humor us a curse. His fun palled upon  him while his readers were still marine;. He saw himself as a buffoon, a  clown, amusing ihe rabble���and the  idea was not sweet to him.  Indeed he tried to do serious things  and the crowd laughed because it was  funnier to see Nye trying to be serious  than to see him trying to be funny.  That is one of the fatal features of  the habit  of being funny ; after you  NOTABLE  TEA TOPERS  Men Who Imbibed the Stimulating Brew to Excess.  The most hardened tea drinker may  admit that  tea drinking can   be and  often is overdone, and yet the best  known tea topers do notappear tohave  acquire a'reputation for being funny jsuffered lu consequence of their exces-  haidly fair to rank as tea topers, but  who have shown marked devotion to  I the teapot. In recent days Mr. Gladstone and Dean Stanley would appear  in this class, but indeed any list of enthusiastic lovers in recent times of  what Waller called the "best of herbs"  would be of most inordinate length.���  London Globe.  EVENTS AND  GOSSIP  you don", have to be ; you are. If  you try to brush a fly off you nose���  you are funny. People will laugh,  simply because they expect you-tobe  funny.  Frank Moynihan, the actor, illustrates the idea well in a storv. He  was call boy in an old Chicago theater  when Joe Jefferson was playing Eip  there.. In one scene he was astonished  to see Jefferson deliberately turn his  back to the audience. The act puzzled  him and later he approached the great  actor and enquired about it.  "I am glad you asked me that question/' said Jefferson. "It is this way.  I have been making the audience  laugh for an hour. Every move I  make is funny, whether it is funny or  not. This is Gretoheu's scene���her  one chance to shine in the play. I  want her.'to have the benefit of that  scene. If I turn my face and even  move a hand or an eyelash the audience will laugh and spoil her scene.  The only way to keep them from  laughing is to turn my back."  The "funnyman," the "village cut  up," the "wag" works under tne heaviest handicap of any of the world's  worker*-./ To call a man a wit in the  business way is tantamount to branding him as a failure.  NATIONAL DEBT  CLIMBS  Financial Statement not an  Encouraging One.  The statement of H .n. Mr. Fielding  of the tbe Dominion's finances for the  past year is not an encouraging one  for the people. There has been a big  increase in expenditure above the estimates, and an increase in tlie national  debt of ��5,349,113, against an estimate  of'$l,250,000v The total revenue for the  year'was=$7l7lS0;2B2;"aii*=iTre  sive indulgence in the cheering cup.  De Quincey was a notable tea toper.  In his picture of a winter evening in  his cottage among the Cumberland  hills he mentions the tea equipage on  a table beside the fire, aud behind the  table a fair tea maker, whose duty it  was to fill an almost endless procession of cup3. De Quincey declares that  he drank tea from 8 o'clock at night to  4 in the morning,, and claims the infusion as "the favorite beverage of the  intellectual."  Another tea toper was Hazlitt, the  essayist, who was not only very.fond  ���Of the beverage, but seems to have  drunk it of extraordinary strength.  We are told on excellent authority  that he used two ounces for his breakfast and that for his tea���the finest  Soochong���he paid at first 14 shillings  and afterward 12 shillings per pound.  Perhaps this extravagance and excessive consumption of tea may account  for some of the essayist's quarrelsomeness.  Cowper, as we all know, appreciated  to the full the charm of the fragrant  leaf, but there is hardly sufficient evidence to show that he was guilty of  undue indulgence. The most famous  tea toper was of course Dr.,Johnson,  whose feats with the cup which Mrs.  Thrale filled so assjduoualy.are to well  known to need enlarging upon." His  record appears to have been twenty-  five cups, which he drank at a sitting,  but in mitigation of judgment it should  be remembered that in all probability  the cups were much smaller than the  teacups'in" use at the present time.  Still, Johnson told Miss Reynolds in  playful verse :  Thou canst not make  the tea so fast  As I can gulp it down.  And he described himself as a "hardened and shameless tea drinker, who  has for many years diluted his meals  with only the infusion of this fascinating plant; whose* kettle has scarcely  MmVftorei^rpwtitrwitlrt^a^  evening/with tea solaces the midnight  1903 of about $500,000.     The expenditure during the year was  ��103,309,305,1 and with tea welcuines the morning.'.'  against an estimate of $02,250,000, or  nearly $8,000,000 in excess of tho figures of the previous expenditure. The  expenditure on capital account was  $15,441,403, or $4,392,20p more than  the previous year. Mr. Fielding's estimate was for a capital expenditure of  $12,500,000. The debt is increased $5,-  349,113, against an estimate of $1,250,-  000. The customs revenue showed an  increase of $731,037, Post office au increase of $473,047, Public Works au increase of $422,123. Excise collections  decline 1 to the extent of $372,233, and  the miscellaneous account declined  $743,100.  Tlie surplus is given as $7,871,320.  With the expenditure on. capital account deducted from this, the surplus  is reduced to $2,522, 207.  The committees in charge of the Trafalgar day celebration report gratifying  prospects of success.  Dr. Gibson has opened dental roomH  over the Hudson's Bay store. The  doctor is regarded as being very skillful in his profession, and no doubt lie  will be kept busy in Nelson.  During the autumn Mr. Thomas lias  made many improvements in the Lake-  view Hotel. This hotel during the  past seven years has -built up an enviable reputation for the attention  given to the comfort and convenience  of its guests.  It is an amazing confession, but we are  bound to remember that this intemperate tea bibber ' lived to the age of  seventy-five.  Johnson's record was equaled by  Bishop Gilbert Burnet, the author of  the well known "History of My Own  Times,"��� \. lio is reported tohave disposed of twenty-five cups in a morning. Another mau of letters ofa very  different type, Nathaniel Hawthorne,  who might have equaled tlie doctor,  curbed his tea drinking propensities  early. When he was a very young  man Hawthorne was in the hajbit of  visiting at a house where the hostess  made excellent tea, and one evening  when the visitor's cup was passed to  be refilled she said : "Now, Mr. Hawthorne, I am going to play Mrs. Thrale  to your Johnson. I know you are a  slave to iny tea." The young man  made no reply, but he had no inclination to play the role assigned to him  and for five years from that night  Hawthorne did uot taste a cup of tea���  a protest which seems as excessive in  its way as the inclination which his  hostess had attributed to him.  There have been other heroes of the  teapot not a few. Hartley Coleridge  may fairly claim a place among the tea  topers. Borne one is said to have asked  liim once how many cups, he usually  drank and to have received tlie scornful reply : "Cups ! I don't count by  cups. I couut by pots !" Then there  have been others whom it would be  "Hooligan's Troubles" will be seen  at the Opera House on tlie evening of  October 30th.  Thos. Allice, representing Turner,  fieeton & Co., of Victoria, was in the  city this week. Tom possesses the distinction of being the first commercial  traveller to open a trunk in  Dawson  Bruce Heathcote, .of the San Francisco .branch of the Canadian Bank of  Commerce, is visiting fri ends in Nelson. V.Mr. Heathcote is well pleased  with his new surrouudings, but cherishes a deep-seated love for his old  home.  By the death of Rev. C.-Gooderich  Roberta,- M. A. LL. D., last Wednesday, Fiedericton loses a respected citizen and the diocese of New Brunswick one of the oldest clergymen in its  service. Canada also loses the head of  one of its most famous literary families.  Of the children, Charles G. D.', William Theodore aiid Mrs. S. A. B. Mac-  Donald-all have become famous as  writers of prose or poetry.  There is trouble in Dawson over the  celebration of the Nelson centenary.  The '"French-Canadian section of the  Yukon metropolis is making a protest  at the celebration planned for October  21. It is claimed that Canada should  forego any/attempt to publiclyhonor  one of the.ni.ost illustrious of England's  sea fights because a large portion of  the'��"population' of the Dominion is  composed of compatriots of the nation  whose naval supremacy was lost on  that memorable day.' This has been  asked, even (hough all parts of Bri-  Empire are celebrating the great event.  Says the Vancouver Province: "Mi-  Harold Nelson as the cripple Lanclotto,  in Francesca da Rimini last evening,  deepened the favorable impressions  which he made in his previous night's  performance of Richelieu. Tlie role  is a very exacting one, for it is invested  with- such prominence that it stands  in a very limelight of criticism. He  not only succeeded in speaking his  lines with clear articulation, but his  voice was equal to all the inflections  demanded by the varying emotions.  Mr. Nelson's efforts won lepeated outbursts of applause from the audience,  which 'was not as large as the excellence of the play merited. Beppo, the  jester, was cleverly performed by Clifford Lane Bruce. The costuming and  special scenery contributed very materially to the general success of the  production."  Ihings Talked of During the  Week in Nelson.  The many friends of J. W. Banfield  rejjret his departure from Nelson, but  are pleased to learn sinco be must go  that his new post in Cuba comes in the  way of promotion". During his residence here, Mr. Banfield made many  friends, and lie will be greatly missed,  especially in amateur theatrical and  operatic circles. Some of his work on  the local stage has never been surpassed by an amateur in Nelson. His removal from Nelson is at the special request of the inspector of the Royal  Bank, who recognizes in himvamost  capable and trustworthy officer. It will  be remembered that ifc was Mr. Ban-  field who drew the attention of the  eastern financiers to the electric light  debentures.  The Vancouver papers criticize rather  severely Harold Nelson's production of  "Prince Otto," but bestow lavish praise  on his "Richelieu." Mr. Nelson gave  tlie former play on the first night,  with the result that the performance  of "Richelieu" was poorly patronized  on the following evening. "As the  great Cardinal," the Vancouver.News-  Advertiser says, "Mr. Nelson scored a  decided success. Dropping all mannerisms, he interpreted the role in a dig-,  hilled and, masterful style that "won for  him the applause and approval of all  present."  C. Douche and wife have returned to  Nelson .after a three montlis' yis.it ,to  Europe. Mr. Douche enjoyed his trip  very much, but does* not hesitate in  saying that he visited no place that  could be compared with Nelson as a  delightful residence location. Tn Italy  the heat was almost unbearable, with  the result that in two weeks he was reduced ten pounds in weight. He was  delighted with the scenery jn Switzerland, but even in this regard he believes Nelson, surpasses the famous-  scenio resort. YVhile he was absent,  like a true patriot, he sounded "the  praises ofthe Kootenay metropolis.  to see his friends and say good bye. It  was understood when he borrowed the  suit case from a friend that some rel-  ^ alive was very ill, but since then information has been received that it was  theadvent of an unexpected birthday.  The professor is true to the teachings  of childhood and seems to have a profound reverence for the day of his  birth. For that reason tlie Herald feels  confident that he will exert every  means available to return to Cranbrook  for his October birthday."  The death of Sir Henry Irving will  causeuniversal'sorroVVf^The'sUm^to^  tal of the dead actor's services, to the  people of his time will be equal to that  of almost any man of the past one  one hundred years. He was the greatest actor of his time, if not the greatest  in the history of the world, and he elevated the profession of which he was  so conspicuous a member. There is no  one left to the stage who can hope to  successfully fill the void caused by the  death of Sir Henry Irving.  Vancouver News-Ad vertiser: "Those  who may be so imprudent as to listen  to the suggestion that they can take  up timber lands under a pre-emption  should remember that the right of preemption "only extends to lands bona  fide taken up for agricultural pur-  poess." The officials ofthe Land Department have the duty imposed on  them of seeing that this qualification  ot tlie right of pre-emption is strictly  observed. We call attention to this  m atter because one person engaged in  th e lumber industry, who seems to be  under the impression that the opportunity to enrich himself quickly is of  more importance than .tlie permanent  interests of the Province, has openly  declared that if timber cannot be got  in any other way it can be secured by  tlie filing of pre-emption claims. Those  who attempt what is nothing less'than  a fraud on the country wiil find only  disappointment and loss awaiting  them."  John Drewe leaves for Calgary by  way of Revelstoke this evening to  take charge of the J. II. Ashdown  Hardware Co's branch store at that  point. His departure is universally regretted. During his residence in Nelson he was foremost in every tiling  which had for its object the advancement of the city's interests.  Every man in Nelson has been on  his best behavior this week, for the  reason that Judge Jowett is dealing  out even-handed justice ut the city  hall. The judge is a terror to evildoers, und as a consequence highwaymen, burglars, sneak thieves, inebriates, etc., have taken to the tall  timber.  The many friends of "Prof." Hepburn in Nelson, will be rejoiced to hear  from him once more. The Cranbrook  Herald had the following last week :  "There has beeu no word received  from Prof. Hepburn, who was called  away in the night.two weeks ago, and  under these circumstances was unable^ stadt.  GEO. E. FOSTER  IS CONTENT  The Tribune made a vicious attack  on Dr. Rose this week, and even when  the editor was convinced of his error,  he failed to( apologize. A "vigorous"  editor and a gentleman do not appear  to be synonymous terras.  Since the Spokane Northern Rajj.  way substituted a mixed train service  for the one given all summer, it is a  difficult matter to tell what time the  trains will reach Nelson in the evening. Some time it reaches hereon  time, but usually it is t\wo or three  hours late. As a consequence, this  railway is not growing in popularity  with its patrons. '  The' excellent deportment of the  entire company on the streets, in  fact everywhere, is one of the noticeable things with Richards & Pringle's  Famous Georgia Minstrels. People remark daily on the way the boys carry  and behave themselves. They are  never seen hanging around saloons and  tough negro dives, or associating with  loose characters. It is this discipline  that makes it possible for them to give  such a really excellent.performance as  they do. The reputation of the organization is. world wide. This season  they "ih iye consolidated their twoshows  .idto'.one, making it the largest minstrel show traveling. They will appear at the Opera House on Monduy,  Oot.lGlh. '  Those who cannot afford to pay for  Harper's Weekly, should subscribe f r  the Nelson Tribune, which publishes  some of the best articles from the former publication, as "special dispatches  to the Tribune."  The Slocan Star promises to be one  of-.the-largest zinc ore producers in  British Columbia.  Fred Elliott is down from the Lardeau. He reports a-better -feeling  amongst mining men in   that district.  Harold Nelson returns to the Nelson Opera Hou_e on the evening of  Oct 27th, when he will present "Francesca Da Rimini" for the first time  here. ���  The Kootenaian urges tbe horticulturists in the neighborhood of Kaslo to  form a fruit growers association, adding that-the benefits to be derived  from such an association are manifold.  Rev. Wm. Murphy, brotherof Dennis  Murphy, of Ashcroft, B. C, aud James  Murphy, M. P. P. for Cariboo, has  been appointed head of the Ottawa  Uuiversity, Canada's foremost Catholic  educational institution.  Thejudgment handed down by Mr.  Justice Irving to the effect that every  brewery in the 'Province should have  paid a Provincial license since  1900 will be of considerable interest,  The case on n-'vich th e decision is  based originated in an information  against Joseph Niderstadt, brewer, of  Cranbrook. It was heard before Stipendiary Magistrate Armstrong, and  Niederstadt was fined $50. with the option of two months'-imprisonment. It  was appealed and came before Mr.  Justice Irving in Nelson, It. S. Lennie  appearing for the Provincial Government and James O'Shea forNieder-  With the Larger Salary, and  Takes Full Responsibility.  "I suppose," said Hon. George Eulas  Foster, M. P., with noble resignation,  "we will have t*i be content."  He was referring to the increased indemnity in an address to his North  Toronto constituents Friday night of  last week. They did not all seem t<>  be quite as well satisfied as their contented M.-P.  Mr. Foster lightly approached tiie  subject, quoting a remark once made  by Sir Wilfrid about the gifts of "the  gods at Ottawa."  "The gods at Ottawa have given us  these things," was how he adapted it, -  "and I suppose we must be content."  The North Toronto member made  uo attempt to evade responsibility.  He did not pretend that the Government alone was to blome. ��� -  "I didn't sign the round robm about  which so much has been said,'' he declared. "I object to round robins on  principle."  "Every man," he declared with emphasis, "who sat in Parliament and  allowed the hill to go through without -  objection must take his share of tlie  responsibility lor the vote and the consequences that came from ft. Whether  a member signed the round robin or  not, he is responsible if he did not protest against the bill. The only way by  which the indemnity could be increased was by a vote t.f the rneni-  bers."  "You're worth five times the  money," declared another, reassuringly.    "North Toroutd'is proud ofyou."  Mr. Foster, with becoming modesty,  passed over this flattering remark. He  did not stop to argue that he wa9  worth ��12.000 per year to his country,  hut he did respectfully submit that  -52,500 was a very reasonable indemnity. A less amount would not indemnify members for their losses.  -"At the same time," he confessed,  "t do not,think that the cost of elections should be taken into account in  fixing the amount. It has been said  that there are men in Parliament who  could not earn $600 elsewhere. If that  is the case, then it is the fault of the  t'leclors-who send them there."   He pointed out that across the line  members of Congress received $5,000 a  year and $1,200 extra for clerical  work. He was applauded when he  said the people wanted the indemnity  fixed nt a figure that under no circum-  Parliament would be closed fo a poor  man. ���.-"���  Mr. Foster discussed other matters  as well; in fact, the "other matters"  constituted the larger part of his address. He pointed out reasons why a  session could not be shorter than five  or six months. He scored members  who absented themselves from the  House a large portion of tbe time. The  siime was true of the Senate.  "The Senate," he averred, "ought to  frame and fashion work for itself, slay  and do it or te abolished."  On questions of tariff and immigration he enunciated the Conservative  policy, and incidentally declared himself iu fa\*r>r of public ownership.  "lam in favor of public ownership,  but not for everything," concluded Mr.  Foster. "We are coming to the period  when it isa fair question to ask if  many tilings carried on and operated  by corparations should be taken over  by the State. There is a line to be  drawn somewhere, however, as to  what the State shall or shall not take  over. Where should that line be-  drawn ?"  The management af the Nelson Fair  are able to show a surplus of $308. Tbi_  is'the proper way to finance an undertaking of this character.

There are many cases before the  Supreme Court of Canada thut demand the special information possessed by the western jurist.  At a charivari, near Peterborough, Ont., last week, a young man  was fatally wounded, and the claim  was made that it was an accident.  It is s'.range some people never  seem to realize the risk lhey run in  participating in a charivari.

Vancouver  No one denies, not even the edi  tor, that the Nek on Tribute i.-.  usually a week behind in its news,  but it was r.cvcr suspected lhat  some of its mrst brilliant scoops  were seven years old. The Cranbrook Herald thus exposes the  celebrated bear "dispatch " :  " There have been several amusing questions asked by readers of  the Herald since the paper started  to reprint items from the issues of  seven j-ears ago. Many do not notice the heading and take lhe items  printed for news of the day. This  is excusable en the part of the  masses, but when newspaper editors fall into this error it is amusing in the extreme. Seven years  *go last week A. W.

AN honest man.entered   tlie'stor*  of a clothier 'one' day, and     ln  reply -to tlie query .as to  whal  could be done,for film on  that  particular  occasion,  'he   assumed     a  tumble pose and repltid:  "Sir, I wish to furnish, you proof thai  t am wh-at I am."  "I cannot doubt your 'honest y," said  bhe clothier, "but still proofs are  proofs, and you may, submit your documents."     ' ��� ' !  "Do you remember, thfct   I   was In  your store six months a'jfo?"  -"Alas! I do not;:but you look like *  man of truth, and I will not e.aln*:aj.  you."  "I was here, sir, andi bought thin  suit of clothes of you,.( It had been  marked down from fifteen dollars to  eight dollars and  fifty .cents."  "Yes, I rocognizii the ^loth, and I  grieve to think that I'iost six dollar*  and fifty cents on that suit. I (had to  mark them down to make room for  the quick-lunch business oa tihe other  Mae." .   ,  "You -wai-ranted the dye," continued  the honest man, "and there has Ibeen  ao fadlr.gr or croclclnff.' 'I cannot say  tliat  yo-ji lied  to  rue."  "A.nd  the Price was rightV  "It was. I hugr the delusion that T  TouiiJ a bargain."-    '  "T_en what ls the cause of thy com-  &'a.*nt?"  "It Is no complaint, oh. clothier. It  i�� that after I had _ot miles away 1  round a ten-dollar bill In the trouser*  pocket."  "A. ten-dollar bill In the pocket oi  an clffht-dollar-and-ftfty cent suit,"  mused the clothier. "Here, Ikey, corns  forward and explain."  "I���I was tempted," said the young  man, as he trembled before his employer. ������  "So? Then It vas you who substituted a ten for a twenty, and made  this honest man a journey to get his  Just dues? Go, bring me'a new, crisp  ten, and later on I -will see to your  case."  "I would not that he come to poverty," said the honest man.  "He shall not. but I will stop lt ont  of his wages and humble him to the  dust. I always give a twenty-dollar  bill with every elg-ht-dollar-and-flfty-  cent suit, and here is .your balance.  Take It, sir, with many apologies; and  If I have put you to viy expense, remember that all my elgliteen-dollar  overcoats have been manked down to  nine dollars and a fifty-dollar bill  placed ln each pocket to clase -them out  quickly and make room for a chicken-  farm in the rear end of the store."���  Detroit "Free Press."

We had onions, which a number of the men ata  freely. Those who did so were soon  attacked, and nearly all died. -rAs soon  as I made this discovery their use was  forbidden. After mature deliberation  I came to the conclusion that onions  should never be eaten during the prevalence of epidemics, for the reason  that they absorb the virus, and communicate the disease, and that the proper use for them is sliced and placed  in the sick-room, and replaced wlth  fresh ones every few hours. . . . After maintaining the foregoing opinion  for eighteen years, I have found the  following well attested: Onions placed  in the room where there .is smallpox  will blister and decompose with great  rapidity; notonly so. but_w_Ill_prevetit_  "the sprea'd of the disease. I think that  as a disinfectant they have no equal If  proporly used. If needed, the foregoing  (which I have greatly abbreviated) can  be attested on oath."
