C, Jan. 2.-Three city firemen, named Frost, Anderson and MacDonald, were net upon by a small mob of armed Japanese, early this morning and lett for dead at the corner of Powell Street and Gore Ave., two blocks from the police station. The men were clothed in distinctive 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. , Instantly the proprietor rushed out and many of his countrymen came to join in the fight, which happened in the heart of the Japanese district. The firemen were athletic young nrn but were, overpowered after fighting hard. The flesh on their faces was torn into ribbons by the razor like knives the Orientals carry. Frost was probably mortally injured, his neck being cut and slashed, and laid open for four inches long and two inches deep alongside the jugular vein. The men were frightfully mangled about the arms and breasts, but McDonald and Allan were still fighting over the body of Frost when a squad of police arrived. Four Japanese were arrested and the three firemen were takn to the hospital. The Japanese fought like demons and spine carried knives a foot long. TRAIN TURNED SOMERSAULT Almost Increditable Escape From Injuries of a Train Loaded With Passengers on G. T. R. (Western Associated Press.) Barrie, Jan. 2.-That a whole train should take a triple somersault down a 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 six miles north of Barrie at 7.30 this morning. The Pentang train was slowly climbing a grade at this point when from some unexplained cause it jumped the rails and making three complete turns landed right side up in a ditch 35 feet below. Only the engine remained on the track, the tender, express, 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 passengers were removed the three cars were completely destroyd. Inside 45 minutes Grand Trunk surgeons, Drs. Ross and Arnott were on the spot The injured were removed' to Barrie.

Limit**, TORONTO GUT FOR HOSPITAL Splendid Rally of Sunday Schools New Year's Day GIVING TO OTHERS Yam Ml Forftt a Worthy hstiMiM .�lu:ir (From Thursday's Daily.) The real Christmas spirit was Jy and amply shown at the union Sunday School rally held in Wesley Church yesterday morning when the Presbyterian, llaptist and Metho . it Sunday School united in a ' Service. No doubt every child who participated in the exercises yesterday hud had great pleasure the week before in receiving- the Christmas (rifts ffi^en by Santa Claiis and other friends not so mysterious, bin, judging from the enthusiasm shown in the service and ccia)ly v�'th older people, the exercises such as yesterday's show that the. pupils of the Sabbath Schools have the spi- | rU of the Mast/er of whom they learn 1 a'm'es and whose birth they celebrate at Christmas tide. For, when "they made a feast they culled not their kinsmen nor rich neighbors" from whom they could expect recompense but raithcr in bringing their Rifts for a donation to the CJaH. Hospital \hey carried out the Master's instruc lions, "when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame and the blind," and the happy looks upon every face indicated that the promise that "thou slial.t bo blessed" had been abundantly fulfilled. The body of The church was comfortably filled with members of the three schools when Rev. .1. M. Harrison, the chairman, opened the mect-inir asking them to sing-, "Onward, Christian Soldiers," after which the schools recited in unision the twenty-third psalm. After singing a New Year's hymn "Sing to the Groat Je- hovah rruise." I'ev. A. M. Gordon led in prayer. Another hymn was sung and llev. Wm. Heid led in the responsive reading of l'salm 103. Mr. A. Irving introduced a capital talk on Making iv Man, by telling a couple of good stories. In his address he spoke of the necessity of knocking off some of the rough" corners of our characters in order to make them perfect. Selfishness. t,a-zinuss, and Discontent were the three corners dwelt upon more particularly. Dr. Uiilbraith based his interesting address on a fossil he had with him. drawing attention to the fact that character is as the fossil. It is soft Iand impressionable in early yoars, ! gets hard gradually, but may be turn | ed from-Jjeing hard to soft. After relating briefly the German story of the Cold Heart, the sjieakcr spoke of Christ as the power that can keep the heart soft or can turn it from a "heart of stone" to one of "flesh."

RAINFALL FOR 1907 PrecitttatiM Darwf tie Year was (her Fifteen laches while under that woodpile is awful "After I had called for an hour or I so I sort, of gave- up hope, and visions of a lingering death by starvation under all the wood that I had split and piled up there myself came before me. "I thought of my wife, perhaps coming bock, if nobody found me be- I forehand, and after thinking it I strange that 1 did not, meet her at i the train, search for men and maybe | not find me for weeks afterward, ' when the wood would be removed. "Then hope would come again and I would call iind think that surely 1 would not be left to die in this way, and that someone would hear. These moods alternated until 1 lost consciousness." The rescue of Mr.Gray was brought I about by a most peculiar circum- I stance. On Christmas afternoon the | next door neighbor, who had thought I that not seeing him around he had j gone out in the country, hoard his j cow distressedly mooing and bawling, j and went over to find out what was the matter. Every atom of fodder had been licked up clean, and when the animal was led out to water she had to be beaten back from the trough or she would have done herself serious 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, revealed that he was not around and he answered to no e.�iia, P. M. Smith was told about it and ho organized a search party and finally he heard a faint moaning in the wood shed. He stopped for a moment and listened, and' then walked around the pile and saw the-sole of a shoe sticking out. He caled and the wood was quickly moved to one side and the unfortunate old man tenderly borne to his bed. He is in a critical condition us a relapse has set in and doubts ore entertained as to his recovery. His wife was sent for and she arrived Saturday morning, and i� waiting by the bedside of her life partner for gome hopeful sign.
