Near Oberlin a touring car caught fire. last night while trying to force its way through the thistledown and occupants narrow- ly escaping. Thistle down was carried before the wind like snow and orchards were packed full. Yards arid fences were .hidden, alleys and sidewalks blocked and -instances where homes are sur, rounded by trees the: down is piled so high that only by using a pitch- fork can.the occupants clear a way. On the streets, where the -buildings made a -shelter from, the gale, the down is piled to the tops of awnings .like'immense hay .stacks which grew overnight. Trains are delayed by the down packing in the cats. AFTER THE USURERS Ottawa, Feb. Rogers of Toronto this morning swore out in- formation against sir usurers, of the capital.

This advertisement "states that- 'pa- tients receive individual and one wonders casually if the at. tendants ever receive "individual at- tention" from the patients, when the drama of the tramp and the house- hold dog is enacted. Surgical opera- tions are performed, so that- now no fashionable, dog or cat should be taunted with having an appendix. Pets are boarded and cared for while their owners are "abroad" or in the south for the winter, and this is really a very humane dispensa- tion for it is pitiful to cat vrith a tin can appendage, and a souted outlook on life. However, this home appears to be for the favored few who are backed by wealth and society- and cats and dogs of the tin can va- riety are debarred from its comfort- able precincts. It remains for ft philanthropist to endow beds for such. Here is a suggestion for Mr. Carnegie. The advertisement ends by stating that the home is under the personal supervision of a veterinary surgeon, and that the fees are moderate.

In taking her -long trip through 'a region so little known, Miss Cameron had no idea of per- forming the .spectacular. She went at it in a 'most methodical manner, carrying a complete outfit and a thoroujrh equipment, and the result is the "most comprehensive collection of information concerning the region where Sir John Franklin went to his death long years ago that- has ever been gotten together." If we had a Woman's Canadian Club here, we too, might have the privilege of hear- ing Miss Cameron. Even as it is, could not the matter be arranged?
