Known as " The Sourdough Priest," Ei. Leo Bosse, O.M.L, a French-Canadirsa, who has spent ten years in the Yukon, possesses an endurance and courage to which his Superior, Bishop Coudert, O.M.L. Vicar-Apostolic of the Yukon, pays tribute in the following words: — " Fr. Bosse was sent to Northern Yukon, and disembarked front the boat at Minto. Without having yet seen the -country or its inhabitant% he set off all alone, carrying a 75pound pack on his back, to cross the mountains and get to his post about 100 miles distant.
" After seven days of hard going in the soft snow, and sleeping in the open, he reached Mayo, safe and sound. There had been great anxiety there, as it was known he had left, but no one had any idea where he was or when he would arrive. Ile was given a rousing welcome and he was promptly named the Sourdough Priest.
" Father Bosse has spent ten years in the hardest of our missions. Among the miners and trappers he is looked upon as one of the strongest men in the North, and one of the best wood-cutters. Since his days in the north he has often turned trapper to catch the means of building his missions."
