Roundabout Notes. [By Clinking Cymbal.] 'The non-appearance of ray notes in the piist fow issnes wns duo to apathy, but ?whether that was tho cause of so much showery weather is a debatable aubject.

THE COLLEGE OF CARDINALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 8 April 1898
TliE COLLEGE OF CARDINALS. A Consistory of Rome is always not merely an imposing ceremony, but an interesting event to tho whole of Christendom. It is curious that the i-rigin of this famous body is surrounded by uncertainty, as is also tbe early growth of its power. Its most im portant function, the election of the Pope, was originally exercised by the faithful :tt large, afterwards by the clergy ; and it was not until the first decree of the Lateraii Council, under I'opn Nicholas II., th-tt it was confined to the cardinals. For a loni; time the bishops used to take precedence of the cardinals iu the great councils of tbe Church ; and 'it was only as late as 1614 that Louis XIII. of France , in the sit tings of the Parliament of J'uris, adjudged pre cedence to the cardinals over tun ecclesiastical peers — bishops and ubbols. The title itself is of very ancient usage ; for were read in the Council of Rome held by Syl vester I. about the year 320 that there were seven cardinal-deacon...

AN OIL KING'S SQUAN-DERED FORTUNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 8 April 1898
AN OIL KING'S SQUAN DERED FORTUNE. The discovery of petroleum on the Trnns Atlantic Continent is invested with a K°°d denl of romance, but probably nothing can exceed in grotesque extravagance thu nsuTiUiveof the man who was mado fabulously rich by the discovery. He was Scotch — at least in namu — and he owed his fortune to one who was Scotch in blood as well aa name. This was William M'Clintoclc,tue owner of an almost worthless farm in Franklyn County, Pennsylvania. Accompanied by hiu wife, he went to the County Poorhousci to pick out a boy for adop tion, as they hud already adopted from the same institution a daughter. They sclectei a lad of 12 or 15 years old, to whom thu namo of John Steele hud been attached — though how he got it docs not appear iu tbe record. A little more than a year later tbe farmer died, leaving all his small properly to hs widow, and she, impressed by his suilden demise with a new sense of the insecurity of life, almost immedi ately made her will.
