Full Text

p.2 Personal - J.D. Thompson left for Montreal, again as agent of the K. & M. F. Company.

p.3 A Rough Day - The greatest 'hum' of the season was produced by the gale of yesterday. It blew furiously. In the city yesterday it was severe enough, but on the water the effects were more violent. The water was lashed into a fury, and the wharves were washed by the turbulent water. The forwarding companies had great difficulty in protecting their floating property from damage. The most trouble was experienced at the Montreal Forwarding Company's dock, where all the elevators and barges were lying. Capt. Gaskin, with about a dozen helpers, had their hands full watching them. Numbers of extra chains and anchors had to be thrown out. One of the elevators was slightly injured, but not seriously.
