Monarch of the Cocos Files His
Royal Father's Will in
HIS POSITION UNIQUE ONE

of Liiglish School.
John Sidney Clunies-lloss. now In
London, is a figure as strangely roman
tic as was ever pictured by writers of
the most lurid Oction. .lust now he
is a well ed urn ted aud wealthy gen
tleman, descended ou one side from
an aristocratic Scotch family and on
the other from royal Malay blood, but
at home, in the Cocos islands, he is
monarch of all her surveys, and he sur
veys a good deal.
Clunies-Uoss whose father died a
month or two ago. is the fourth of his
name to rule over the little group of
coral islands in the Indian ocean. The
story of his family is that of a man
who would be king who lived uearly
100 years ago.
The original Clunles-Ross bore the
same name as his great-grandson. lie
was born in the Shetland islnnds,
whither his family had fled, proscrib
ed, after the failure of the Jacobite
uprising In the early eighteenth cen
tury. But he obeyed the call of the
sea. and in .the course of his roving he
fell in with one Alexander Hare, a
dissolute. Imaginative, not overhonest
man. who had come under the spell
of the east to the extent of adopting
most of its vices. He was in disgrace
with his employers and found a change
of residence imperative.
I'lck Out a Kingdom.
In Clunies-I:ss lie met a man as
daring as himself, though honorable
and straight living, lie proiosed that
the pair of them should seek out an
uninhabited jroup of Islands and live
thereon like oriental potentates.
The young Scotchman liked the idea,
and the two proceeded to the Cocos
islands. 500 miles from other land, and
established themselves, together with
about 100 others. Hare took a harem
along with him and prepared to spend
his days in riotous living. Clunles
Hoss took his lawful family, was sat
isfied with the primitive life and look
ed about for a chance to trade.
lie tried spices aud coffee and failed.
Then he pitched on cocoanuts as bis
best investment and planted great
groves of the trees. While they were
growing he traded as best he could,
and a good many 'Malays, with a few
whites, were attracted to the island.
GOOD WAY TO USE
HYOMEI FOR CATARRH
I Besides breathing through the in
haler a few times a day, many ca
tarrh sufferers write that they find
inhaling HYOMEI (pronounce it
High-o-me) from a bowl of steaming
water each night before retiring a
great aid in curing stubborn cases.
Try it; it's very simple; gives
quick relief and makes you breathe
Fill a bowl half full of boiling wa
ter; pour into the water a teaspoon
ful of HYOMEI, cover head and bowl
with a towel, and breathe through
nose and mouth the pleasant, medi
cated, antiseptic and healing vapor
This method relieves that stuffi
ness at once, and makes your head
You can get a bottle of HYOMEI
at Harper House Pharmacy and
druggists everywhere, for only 50
cents. Ask for extra bottle HYO
But bear in mind that a HYOMEI
outfit which includes inhaler and
bottle of HYOMEI costs $1.00.
HYOMEI Is guaranteed by Harper
House Pharmacy and druggists ev
erywhere to cure catarrh, sore
throat, coughs, colds, asthma and
croup, or money back. Try it on
that generous basis.
Hare tried to enslave tue darker por
tion of the population, with such ill
success that he was forced to leave
the islaud. He went to Singapore,
where he died not long afterward, de
serted by his harem and "courtiers."
Fortune in Coeuanutk.
The cocuautits yrew. unci Clunies
lioss begau to make money out of the
oil and various other products of the
trees. Trade prospered in other direc
tions also, and the island attracted
more inhabitants. The rule of Ross
was recognized and welcomed. He
was just aud kind aud withal canny in
matters of trading.
Then John, having ruled twenty-seven
years, died in 1S.j4. He was suc
ceeded by John George, his son. In
his time the territory was proclaimed
under British protection, but the
change was merely nominal. Nobody
interfered with the absolute rule of
John George. He further strengthened
his position by marrying a Malay
woman of royal blood and fine char
acter. Together they developed the
inlands and saw justice done.
The chiefs tix Rons were all edu
cated in Scotland, for the cocoanuts
were brinsinfi in a tidy sum. George
was the eldest son. and he studied en
gineering that his islands might have
the benefit of his skill. When he suc
ceeded his father he devoted himself
not only to carrying on trade, but
to perfecting the native arts. He in
turn married a native woman, who
proved as worthy a helpmate as the
wife of John George.
All Educated In England.
Like his i;aui'ais. George Clunies
Ross had many sons, all educated iu
England. He was in England with
them when he died, in June of this
year. His son, John Sidney, succeeds
to the kingship, or whatever it may
be called, and the property. There
has been trouble in England over pro
bating the will, because there is no le
gal machinery for doing such things
in the Cocos islands, but this little
difficulty does not affect the status of
John Sidney. The Islanders, who num
ber about 700. are well satisfied with
the justice of the , Clunles-Ross dy
nasty aud have no desire to Invite a
change of government
There are neither soldiers nor police
in the Cocos islands. The natives live
at peace with one another and with
the great spirit they believe in. They
have plenty of this world's goods
