By tHe^tove. watching: closely that the pewter should not melt. "The clothes of the boys were made of corduroy, jacket and trousers in one. and nothing under but a shirt. These absorbed the heat like sheet iron, so that when a boy retruned to his seat he was often compelled to carry his ink stand in bis mouth, employing both hands to hold bis trousers off from bis knees, and with every precaution the skin was often mottled and scorched." Another old time schoolboy in his later years recalled an even severer ex perience. "I can remember." he recorded, "how, crowding close to the stove to toast the* shivers from my poor little body. I scorched a hole in my trousers in front and exclaimed aloud at the dis aster, whereupon the master thrash ed a hole into them behind, and when I went home to my mother she told me grimly it was well that things should match and that as my shirt was such an old one she was willing to risk fraying it on the back, and she reached for a strap and did! "I was thoroughly warmed, and it was the coldest day of the year, but I regretted my shivers after all."— Youth's Companion. Charms of Labrador.

KCEV SJTON mam tyilKSV BffiBWII tf«»Jt*SE' BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE FLUNG AWAYLAND Amazing Grants of Territory to Royal Favorites. ALL O CANADA ONCE A GIFT It Was Handed Over Bodily by James I. to Lord Stirling, Who Didn't Know Enough to Keep It—The Hudson Bay Comprty'u Famous Present. Americh has been freely parceled out in gifts siuce Columbus first set eyes upon the nftw world. Most of the Unit ed States territory has been at some time or other handed over to public and private companies. New York, for example, fifty years after it had been sold for something like $25 was pre sented with other lands to the Duke of York by his brother, the king, and the name of the city is a witness this day to that transaction. The duke granted New Jersey to somebody else, and a few years before the king had carved out Maryland for Lord Baltimore. Pennsylvania was given to William Penn, the Quaker who founded the state, in payment, it is said, of a debt that Charles II. owed Penn's* father, and the same monarch gave both North and South Carolina to eight London geutlemen who stayed at home, called themselves the lords proprietors and lived on the rents until the people re fused to pay any more and George II. took over the colonies. The story of Colonel Talbot at the be ginning of the last century Is one of the romances of .Canadian history. The colonel went out in 1793 as an aid de-camp to the governor, and the founding of a colony became the ruling passion of his life. He was given 100, 000 acres, which grew later to 050,000, on condition that he place a settler on every 200 acres. Today this territory is occupied by some of the most flour ishing towns in the Dominion, and at the beginning of Queen Victoria's reign Colonel Talbot, who way then still liv ing, was the recognized chief of twen ty-eight towns, all of which had been given to dim years before as unoccu pied land. Prince Edward Island, covering 3.000 square miles and embracing such nourishing towns as Georgetown, Char lottetown and Princetown, was given away in 1797 to absentee proprietors and was bought back again on the or ganization of the Dominion of Cana da for £160,000. The Canadian com pany, founded in 1826, received a grant of 1,000,000 acres, and bought 2,300.000 more at the rate of half a crown an acre. The mention of the Hudson's Bay company recalls what is probably the most famous gift of territory in his tory. In 1G70 Charles II. gave Prince Rupert by royal charter territory 200 or 300 miles wide around the eastern and southern shores of Hudson's bay. in addition to a vast empire of forest and prairie. "Rupert's Land," as the territory was called, ultimately stretch ed across Canada, from the Atlantic end of Hudson's strait to the shores of the Pacific. As rent for this ter ritory, covering 2.800.000 square miles, the company paid to the king each year "two elks and two black bea vers." Something over forty years ago the Canadian confederation took over the company's monopoly for £300.000. but the company retained a twentieth part of its lands. The original capital of the company *fas £10,500. and In two centuries its income from furs was £20,000,000. But the most amazing gift ever made since the world began was eurely that made by James I. to Lord Stirling, the poet, who was then his favorite. On Sept. 21, 1621, King James, who must have been extraordinarily deficient in geography, made Lord Stirling, then Sir William Alexander, present of the whole of Canada. The gift, which included Nova Scotia and Newfound land, was confirmed by Charles I., and the poet was so moved by the* high honor that he received that he pub lished "An Encouragement to Colo nies," a work that attained three edi tions. The gift became the subject of interesting legal proceedings, and Can ada once more became the property of the crown. The city of Liverpool was given away by William the Conqueror and again by Henry II., who bestowed it on "the keeper of the castle and pris on of Lancaster." King John bought the site from this keeper and founded the city. Henry III. leased all the crown revenues and royal customs of Liverpool to the Earl of Chester for £10 a year, and the town changed bands several times between the reigns of Henry III. and Charles Stuart That unhappy monarch, being in a state of impecuniosity, offered the town for sale, and it was purchased by some London merchants, who in 1632 sold the crown rights for £450. Forty yearn afterward the rights were purchased by the corporation. Bombay, the earliest settlement of the British in India, was so lightly re garded by Charles II. that immediate ly after its cession to England he sold it to the East India company for £10 a year.
