ents and by his uncle, the Kev. Nathan
Wardner, lormcrly missionary In China,
now a resident ol Glasgow, Scotland.
His boyhood was spent upon bis father's
farm, where the foundation of a
strong physical organization wa built
up. Hi was seldom without a botk at
hand, aud all his leisure moments were
given to study. The desire lor know 1-
edge increased with hi years, finally re

sixteen years of age he launched out in

ployment secured him the means to com
mence his academical career, which was
pursued at Cayuga Academy and at Al

seven years, except at such inter
