Heavy Storm Caused Lost Time
Toronto, O., Sept 12 — On the night of Sept 1 this town was visited by the worst storm that has ever occurred in this part of the country. Flashes of lightning and peals of thunder succeeded each other with great rapidity and brought many to realize that in prayer there can be found consolation and in many homes God was sought as a shelter in the time of the storm.
Much damage was done to the business part of the town. Several merchants lost very heavily, and the workmen at Gill Bros. plant came in for a portion, inasmuch as they lost a full week's work through the bursting of gas mains in the different localities, thereby causing a shortage of gas until Thursday and then the tank could not be gotten in readiness for the rest of the week.
Chas. Campbell's loss was 41 nice young chickens weighing about two pounds each, all drowned.
Wm. Broderick and Harry Sigh left here recently for Montreal to accept places at the Diamond Glass Co.'s plant.
The new due card and case gotten up by the committee at the Montreal convention is a thing of beauty as well as usefulness and convenience. The members of Local Union No. 73 pronounce it a dandy and compliment the national officers and committee on their selection. The Flints don't do things by halves. They believe in that adage, "What is worth doing at all is worth doing well." "Advance" is their watchword, and "Onward" their aim until the goal of perfection is within reach. — Jefferson.
