Lord Strathcona, tho Cunadlan
high commissioner In London, has hu
mor of what Scotchmen call tho pawky
variety, Four or flvo months ago an
old man called at tho offices of the Do
minion of Canada and asked to see
Lord Strathcona, saying that ho was
tho cabman who drovo young Donald
Smith down to tho docks and his ship
when years ago ho loft Caledonia to
make his fortune in Canada.
Lord Strathcona gavo orders that he
should be shown In at once, and right
pleasantly the two old men gossiped
of "Auld Lang Syne" and "Bonnie
Scotland." Suddenly the cabman
heaved a portentous sigh. Lord Strath
cona asked Its meaning. The cabman
He had not been prosperous, but had
fallen on evil dayn. He had to sup
port two grandsons, and one of them,
to his grief, had Just died. He had
little enough to bury him with and
next to nothing with wh.lch to main
tain himself and tho other. Lord
Strathcona passed a five-pound note
quickly Into tho waiting hand of the
Now the cabman had Just made his
second call and tho high commission

the veteran driver brought Into his
prlvato room. Onco more tho ntmos-
phero of the office became thick with
Highland reminiscences. Once more,
too, tho cabman sighed, and then with
breaking voice he related how in his
old ngo he had to support his two
grandsons, and now both of them were
down with typhoid fever. Once more
Lord Strathcona's purse strings were
loosened and ho passed coins Into the
old cabman's hands, who tottered out
stammering his thanks.
Now, Lord Strathcona's secretary
had been an auditor of tho scene.
When tho cabman had gone he came
"I hope, my lord," said he, "you did
not give him anything. When he saw
you some months ago he told you that
of his two grandsons one was dead.
Now he says both are down with ty
phoid fever. It looks, my lord, as If
he might be an impostor."
Lord Strathcona eyed his well
meaning secretary from underneath
Ms bushy brows.
"Thank you, thank you, very much,
Mr. Jones," he purred, "but do you
know that when I went out to Canada

Baron Wiyoshl, who died in Toklo,

lightly remarked that the baron might

With the extension and development
of the railroads of the eastern nart of

for the establishment of a new ocean

venient port of Groat Britain, and the
projectors claim that this will nos-
slbly Bhorten the transatlantic trip by

road construction Is required to make
