C., Jan. city firemen, named Front, Anderson and MftcDohald, were set upon by a small mob of armed Japanese, early this morning and left for dead at the corner of Powell Street and Gore Ave., two from the police sta- tion. The men were clothed in dis- tinctive uniforms which makes the attack of the Japanese all the more serious. By acident Frost fell against the' window of a Japanese store breaking the plate glass. i In- stantly the proprietor rushed out and many of countryman came to join in the fight, which happened in the heart of the Japanese district. The firemen were athletic young neri but werft overpowered after fighting hard. The flesh on their faces torn into ribbons by the razor like knives the Orientals car- ry. Frost was probably mortally in- jured, his neck being cut and slash- ed, and laid open for four inches long and two inches deep alongside the jugular vein. .The men were fright- fully mangled about the arms .and breasts, but McDonald and Allan were still fighting over the body of Frost when a squad of police ar- rived. Four Japanese were arrested and the three firemen were takh to th? hospital. The Japanese fought like demons and scuie carried knives a foot long.

Barrie, Jan., a whole train should take a triple somersault down 35-foot embankment and all the passengers and crew escape -without even a broken bone seems incredible. But that was what occurred on the Pentang branch of the Grand Trunk near Josephine about eix miles north of Barrie at 7.30 thia morning. The Pentang train was slowly climbing a grade at this point when eome rails and making three complete turns landed right side up in a ditch 35 feet below. Only the engine re- mained on the track, the tender, ex- press, combination, second-class and baggage and first-class car making a leap. The stove in the second class car 'set fire to the first-class coach and in a few minutes after the pas- sengers were removed the three cars were completely destroyd. Inside 45 minutes Grand Trunk surgeons, Drs. Ross and Arnott were on the spot unexplained cause it jumped the The injured were removpd to Barrie.

WATER USERS TO MEET RAINFALL FOR 1907 Precipitation Duiig the Tear was Over Fifteen Iicbes At Raymond to Consider Amend- ments to Irrigation Act No doubt every child who partici- pated in the exercises yesterday had had great pleasure the week before; in receiving; the Christinas gifts given by Santa Clans and other friends not so mysterious, but, judging from the shown in the service and the heartiness with which the'gifts were presented, tlvro is no doubt but, every'one was free to admit that "it is -more bles.scd to give than to Some people would discountenance to some extent, the custom of making gifts at Christmas claiming that gifts are made to those from vhom gifts ai-e expected. But, while this .is to a certain extent true, especially Differ people, the exercises such as yesterday's show that the pupils of the Sabbath Schools have the spi- rit of the Master of they Inarn and whose birth -they celebrate at Christmas tide. For, when "they made a feast they called not their kinsmen nor -ich neighbors" from whom they could expect recompense but rather in bringing their gifts for a donation to the Gah. Hospital they carried out. the Master's instruc tions, thou makest a feast, cfl.ll thrt poor. I'M. mn.iincd.

After singing a New Year's hymn "Sing to the Great -Te- Jordan, superintendent of .the Wesley Church School, also made a few re- marks. I The most 'inten-sting feature was the presentation of the gifts. As the of the Sunday schools call- ed out the classes they brought their gifts -bi.blos in front. One class came carrying a big sack of flour, each member of an- other class bringing a jar of fruit, others small sacks of meals, Hour, or sugar. Sometimes one' member of the class made the offering, some- i times each member made a separate gift. When the; presents were all in ife was surprising to st-e the success of this first effort of this sort, for the Hospital is richer by seven bags of (lour, 3 small bags of rolled oats, 2 of porridge meal. T of corn meal, a sack of sugar. 15 jars of fruit and .icily, a Inisliei box and a basket 'of a bag of oranges and one of peaches, a bushel box of candies and nuts, a package of.. and another of cofTee, four big rolls of towelling, a table cloth, a hook, a roll of mag- azines, and.a paid-up subscription to McClure's jMagaxino for a year. The last present was the free cartage of all the stuff to tho Hospital by the Western Warehouse and Transfer. Co.

From 9 o'clock Tuesday morning until G o'clock Wednesday night the old gentleman was buried under a in his oxvn woodshed, and if it had not been for the insistent mooing of his hungry cow he would have undoubtedly been imprisoned so long that death would have end- ed his sufferings. Mr. Gray is a retired farmer, who has lived here for several years, and Tuesday morning he went to the train to Sec wife on on a visit over Christmas with friends, and that was the last seen of him .until over thirty hours later, when Police Mag- istrate Smith heard him moaning and saw his boots slicking out of the woodpile. Help was immediately summoned and willing hands threw the fuel back and the limp body of the old man was brought to safety. He was at first in a semi-conscious state, but recovered sufficiently to1 tell his stoiy. Aftor the train had pulled out he had gone to the xvoodshed and com- menced to split wood, when, without any warning, a large pile fell over on him, burying him. He was at first knocked insensible and stunned with the impact of the wc.ight, but shortly recovered and .found that he was comparatively unhurt. "I found that I was imprison fid by the weight of the wood and could not, jget my arms clear to he told srokcnly and painfully, "so I shout-1 ed and called until practically un- conscious and relapsed aftor bow i many hours I could not say, into y> sensibility. I don't remember any- thing more until I found myself in my own bed. But what I suffered while-j under that woodpile is awful. "After I had called for an hour or so I sort of gave up hope, and via- iona of a lingering death by starva- tion under all the that I had split and piled up there myself came before me.

"Then hope would come again and i I would call- and think that surely I would not be left to .die. in this way, and that someone would hear, i These moods alternated until I lust consciousness." i' about by a most peculiar circum- stance. On Christmas afternoon the next door neighbor, who had thought that not seeing him around he had gone out in the country, heard his cow mooing and bawling, and went over' to find out what was the matter. Every atom of fodder had been licked up clean, and when the ani- mal was led out to water she had i to be beaten back from the trough or she would have done herself ser- ious injury with the amount she drank. Then the thought came that it was very funny that Mr. Gray, who -was very particular about the care of his cow, should leave her .alone in this way to suffer, and a search through the house, which was not locked, re- vealed that he was not around and he answered to HO eaiis. P. M. Smith was told about it, and he organized a search party and fin- ally he heard a faJnt moaning in the wood shed. He stopped for n momonl and listened, and thon walked around the pile and saw the-sole of a shoe sticking out. He caled and the wood was quickly moved to one side the unfortunst-s old man tenderly borne to his bed. He is .in a critical condition as a relapse has sot in and doubts are entertained as to his recovery.
