William Charles White, Is the oldest son of the laic Dr. Robert White, of the town of Trinity in Trinity Bay, on the eastern coast of Newfoundland. Ho was born on August 31st, IStl.". and after attending school at Trinity until he was 16, came to St. John's and entered the Church of England Academy, remaining there two years and then .returning to Tftnity, where he continued his studies under private tuition, as he had decided to embrace the Ministry, leaving in 1S55 to enter St. Augustus's Colle.ce, Canterbury, where, after spending a course of three years, he graduated in 1SSS. Returning to Newfoundland in the summer of that year, he was-ordained deacon in September, 1SSS, or somewhat MISS ANNE MARTIN AIMS AT SENATE Nevada W^oman Upsets Illusions Because She Doesn't Fit Preconceived Ideas.

PERSON:? who have never set';fore had jursidiction over the I-land of Bermuda as well and the practise of the late Bishop Jones was ro spend about eighteen months' of each two years in Bermuda, usually putting in each alternative winter before the old mythology. Anne Martin's record is as good as any. and one s'Jo of it at least is full-flavored of action. She was born near the famous Comstoek Lode-.picture of a raining camp. Shoot-from-the-hip Jjnes, Alkali Smith, bar-rooms with silver dollars stuck all over the floor, gambling hells, etc., etc. (seev any Western movie). She now lives in Reno, although from no ulterior motive. She climbs mountains for a pastime. She was dice the State tennis champion of Nevada. She fought her way inch by nch along with the'Fanklvurst family in the now famous siege of London. She picketed the White House and was thrown Into jail for it, only to be released by Presidential pardon. �All this would justify a picture of the proposed new Senator from Nevada as a tall, gaunt, hard, steely-eyed, pioneering woman, with a talking delivery comparable to a st*^l trap making a ration of tenpenny nails. ' The only thing wrong -with this description is that it isn't true. To really understand the kind of a woman Ann� Martin is without having s?en her yourself, it is neccessary to have read H. 0- Wells, and then fitted her to a mental picture of any one of the Wellsian modern women, from Ann Veronica up. If you haven't read Wells, you have to go on with this story and piece together as best you can the various other details of Anne Martin's life. She was graduated from the University of Nevada and. Lejand Stanford, Jr.. had a flier at art under William A. Chase in New York, studied In England at Cambridge and the Uni-v rsity of London, took a look in at Leipzig, and went back to Nevada to take the chair of history in the university, and from .there gradually became a part .of the Western women's -fight for the vote. With that as a lackcrrounrT it.

"All my life," Mr. Barnes modestly says, "I have been' pushed on, almost in spite of-myself. Just as I was pushed'into official life, so was 1 pushed into the position of a Parliamentary candidate.

It seemed hours before the city editor picked up that precious scrap of paper and glanced'ovc-r It.'but "Itolly" stayed around all the time, waiting to see if it would miss the waste-basket. The editor read it over, and then said, "Roily, your story's all right, but in this office it is usual to say where things happen." In his excitement the copy-boy-reporter had forgotten to mention this most important feature. This was the only change the editor made in the story,'and not long after he promoted one of his "copy-boys" to be a reporter. That hoy I eventually rca-hel one of the highest ! paid portions in Toronto's civic guv-fc.rr.rr.er. t. C. HARRIS, Works Commissioner for the City of Toronto, and Fuel Controller for Ontario, put in several years as a reporter in Toronto. He often tells how he "broke into the newspaper game." He was a "copy-boy" on one of the morning papers. A waterniain burst at the corner .of Yonge and Gould streets, and there was not an available reporter in the office. The city editor, largely in a spirit of fun, told his "copy-boy" to go up to the scene, of the accident and see what was doing. . "Bolly" rushed off, proud as could be with his new honor, and half an hour Iut.'i came back and wrote hie fh.-t St/ ry.

"L1 The Important Thing I^WO men were having a discussion as to which of the two words was the right one: "The hen was sitting." or "Tho hen was setting." thinking that a farmer ^yas the most likely one to contribute the Information they asked the question of Uncle Hayrick. The old irian pondered a while and then shook his head. "1 don't know nothin' about settin' or siiiin'," he told them, "but when i I rear a hen cackle I want to know I right '.it whether she's Jayln' or IF.UT.-C'OL, KXGLA.XD relinquishes bis commission, the King having no further use for his services," was the curt announcement that appeared in the London Gazette of December 11, 1014. No greater disgrace than-that Involved in such an announcement can befall a soldier in war time. At this point in the Austrian or the German army the disgraced officer would have a revolver thrust into h|s hand and would be conducted to some secluded spot, there to shoot himself. In .England they li.'ivo a more vindictive method. The Loudon Gazette, the daily official list that circulates in every division, brigade, battalion and company of the British army and is-printed in all the leading newspapers, may he read by tho whole world. The disgrace is pulplfc property. But, fortunately, the scandal Is short-lived. Tho story of Col. England passed rapidly Into thn limbo of the forgotten. Nearly four years elapsed. . Then, early In January of the present year, the. London Gazette printed the announcement that "Rdward Barker England has been reinstated to the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel In the Royal Artillery." The restoration to honor was publicly announced on the very day that Col. England was discharged rli-i army, a dlsn.hlef.1 yrlvatc. iblejl from Hi reinstatement, in the cold phraseology of the Gazette, was in "consequence of his devotion to duty and gallantry in the field while in the ranks of the Devonshire Regiment." The story that, was crowded into those four years has only been equalled on one previous occasion in the records of the British army.. Edward England came of a. fighting stock. Three of his brothers were soldiers, and all three laid down their lives for their country. The only authentic record of tho affair Is given by a surviving brother, who is the rector of the church in a small .village in Sussex. During tho retreat from Jlons, when Col. England was in command of a munition .column, a staff officer galloped up with the information that the column was in danger of being surrounded. Col. Kngland's chief thought was for the safety of his men and it was with' this object in view that he ordered certain portions of tile transport to bo abandoned. In the confusion more was cant astray than he knew of and, though the column won through, retribution was demanded when tho loss was. counted. Physically tor the time being Col. England was a broken man, and for weeks he was in hospital, but us soon as he was fit he joined the Army Service Corps as an ordinary private, giving his age as 40, although he was then over 60. Transferred to the South African Horse, ho, fought in Africa and later went to Franco with the Devons. Here, ho took part in many fights, bearing himself like tho brave man thn Kins has, now declare! lilm to ije. mentioned among tho leaders. The plucky doctor did his best to oust Thomas Farrow and put him outside the gates of this Utopia. Dr. Macdonald, /too, of Winghnm was fast gathering coin by a goodprac-icc to enable him to give his whole time lo politics, for which he was richly endowed. Keaforth had its ladialor in tho person of its slcdge-.'immer editor, if. Y. McLean. Exeter sent its gnat, debater, Collins, into the fray. Clinton was aiso awake through the * services of its brilliant young lawyer, A. 11. Manning, lie was a campaigner of-great merit. "Bob" Holmes, ils popular editor, was also doing his full share. Who can forget, his iUajesliu Self Dan aicGillic.uildy, "of the Goderich Signal, who, even betwi en elections, carried it chip on his shoulder? The townships had their own squires, such as Charlie Girvin, John Washington, "W'iilly" Young, Humphrey Knell, Joseph Griffin, "Bob" Curno and William Isbister. It was at tliis political tournament that one, .William Proudfoot, won his spurs. Ho was then a fresh-faced young lawyer, who was content, for u living, to curry tho briefs of Car-row, his master, for this searching cross-examiner was a busy man in the courts of that day. For other employment, he kept in his breast pocket, nt election times, the names of-all doubtfuls, with other ear-marks of tho voters belonging to the. realm of Cameron and Ross, That was about the chief item of Harrow's contribution to West Huron politics. But the loan of this suavo young lawyer, who always had the smile of victory, Svho patched up all quarrels, and organized all campaigns, was a considerable Kift. There was at leasi this about it, the. work was well done and honorably done, too. For himself, he saw that there was something worth "while in politics. The Huron members of Parliament were national figures. They had put Goderich on tho map. In time. Gar-row was forced into the tourney, and nt once began to carry off Uy honors. In his promotion, it was out. natural for tho next in line to tal.c up tc.i banner. Thus v. j iauu WiiUum I'i'OUdflUi'
