Mr. Nigel Oliphant was born in the old house which Queen Mary used to occupy at St. Andrews, on December 19, 1874. His brother, David, who unfortunately fell under the Chinese fire, was born on July 10, 1876. In 1896 he had passed second in the open competition for student interpreterships in China. Early in 1897 he went to Peking, where, in each of the two subsequent years, he passed first in the examination in Chinese. Sir Claude macdonald, recognising his ability, kept him in the Chan cery Office of the Legation, instead of sending him as an assistant to one of the Consulates.
