T. Silsby in Lunenburg, dozing in the warm mellow sunshine ready to "rake after" thr' load, woke up suddenly Monrlay afternoon and proceeded to start something. Just what :;upplicd the impetus has not been definitely diagnosed. Whether it was a stray bee that misplaced its rting, or it was just the sudrlen realization of the brac ;ng influr'nce of the clear air and the absence of hay fever of Lun enburg Heights, does not matter.

This happened brtween the hours of three anrl four o'clock, when luckily, the highway is less frequented than at some other hours of the day, or night.
