For cold blooded disregard oi public rights and impudent repudiation of contracts the interview attributed to Farm Pettipiece in the Daily Prov- on Thursday, is a most brilliant example.

Tbus it will be seen that the average monthly loss of life smee the begin- ning; of 1909 has been twenty or two every three cays. The records of the causes of these fires which caused loss of life, as nearly as they could be ascertained, show that in the great majority of cases, they were due to carelessness.
