of Boston With a grent love of nature mid a fondness for Sports he explored the wilderness of York nnd afterwards ft book the region which made both it and self famous His fondness for the horse induced him to make a closo study of that noble animal and out of his knowledge of horseflesh he a book entitled The Perfect Horse a work which added to his reputation Recently Mr Murray embarked in the manufacture of board wagons an enterprise in which he to retrieve his losses in ether business He lost money in the Golden Rule newspaper and in his stock farm in Connecticut For the sake of rest or on business Murray went to California about a mouth ugo During his absence his farm was at- some of hia creditors Down came an avalanche of ridicule and abuse upon poor Murray's head How easy it is to kick a man when he is From the York Times we clip specimen of the prevailing style of Mr Murray started in life ns a single person to wit n minister of tin gospel and by degrees took to self soino other characters much worse than tho tirst HU first eff at com- bination was tha attempt to combine with and to be at a minister and a sportsman lie went to the Adirondack region then the most of wildernesses nnd was so delighted at his success in catching fish that ho immediately wrote a book about it This alone proved that he was a bad sportsman and had failed to learn the lesson of reverent that nature gives to the true when she to him the secret of a lovely trout stream or the haunt of deer The idea that a man cannot be both a good minister and a go ml erman is ridiculous Angling has been the favorite recreation of many of tho bust men of whom history gives us any account But tho goes on to make it appear that Murray is a bad sportsman because lie wrote a book about tho That is to say when ona finds a good place to hunt fish he should bo a hoi and keep the knowledge to himself If to write up tho Adirondacks was unsportsmanlike then old Isaac ton Kit and Frank For- and other
