[ sistance on Sunday afternoon of Major! il j | s ; Raleigh Thomas, who. with his family, j n j Is cocupying one of the cottages own f ed by Mrs. Allen Lester Fowler, on the s . Severn, near War dour, e I Major Thomas was resting on the 8 porch and enjoying a cigar late in the j afternoon when lie smelled smoke. At 1 first he thought it was the cigar he f had imen smoking, but the odor was of t a different sort. He immediately be *; gan an investigation and found the • ] woodwork between the partition on ■ : the second floor of the cottage on fire. 1 1 He tore off the heaver board used in • the partition, and poured water be- ; I tween, being assisted by a bucket • i brigade formed by members of the | household. Soon the fire was put out, , j without material damage. It is thought the fire was caused by mice nibbling at matches, as n:> other , f cause can he assigned for its origin, , . Ihere having been no fire about the premises. I Fortunately the fire caught when , the family was at home, otherwise , I the cottage would have probably < burned to the ground with all its fur- j I nishings, including a valuable piano, . which was not insured. )■ The Thomas family is usually out . ■ motoring on Sunday afternoon at tho time the fire was discovered, but hap . pened not to go last Sunday. The cot- ' tage is the one formerly occupied by i Prof, George Webster, otganist and ; choirmaster of St. Anne’s. : TOMORROW’S SHOWING ; IN FALL MILLINERY ' 1 Two of the local millinery shops will jj 1 have displays in tho latest models of;.
