Baring-Gould's "Curious Myths of  ..the Middle Ages" contains the follow  inn. ''Dr. 'WolIT in his travels and  adventures  sa>s, "There are  men  and women in Abyssinia with tails  like, horses andxlogs." Wolff also  heard from a great many Abyssinia-1"*  and .Armenians (and Wolff is convinced of the truth of it) that tbeic  are near Narea, in Abyssinia, people,  m<*-n and women, with large tails,  with which they are able to knock  ���������down a horse, and there are also  such people near China."

Some years ago the province of  Luxembourg was infested with .wolves  and the alarmed inhabitants appealed lo the minister of agriculture, and  he in turn appealed to the minister of  war, with the result 1hat several reg-  iiifnts were ordered ������o the province  and the pests were extciminated in  short order.  It is not many .'years ago that German soldiers were ordtred to East  Belgium to assist the peasants in a  plague of rats, and millions were  killed before the troops were withdrawn. Four thousand Rwsia soldiers cleared the railway line in the  vicinity of Odessa liter the great  hli/zarcl of 1003, and a company of  French infantry enjoyed a lion hunt  in tho streets of Chartres when one  of these animals escaped fiom a trav  el ling iiieiiai!erie.

Newton   thought    the    council  wished  to shirk the  matter and   put  the  burden     on' the  Finance     Committee.     In this communication   thc  Silver   Cornet  Band asked   the Council   directly  for   aid,    while   the Boys  Brigade  Band,   in  their   request        a  short      time      ago   only asked       the  council    -to  aid     them- in   dcrraj ini.  expenses   of  purchasing   new       mush  for   the     summer      nights'   concerts.'-  Ho   did      not   think      the Counci1  for  aid      in  rv  I  Block 27  ther    or  not  Ihcy     had any   power Smith  to   give  this   donation    to   tho band.  j  The .Mayor   did not   think that the '  ratepayers wojUI saner ion giving a  srstnuce to two bands, and as to  tho legality of it matter it was a  question whether or not the- council had the power to grant aid.  lie believed , though that the Conn  cil which had refused tho band aid  thirteen years nyo, was only bluff  ing when they said they had m-j  power to grant the. amount asked. It was simply a question or"  shoving   the band  men   oil'.  Aid.   Graham   could   not see    where  tho- ratepayers       could  have     any  kick   in   the  matter.  Aid.   Barnes  stated    that   the  Fin-  nance   Commit lee   had    not  included  in   the  estimates     anything  towards!  band  concerts.       He     thought  music  by  one  bund   was enough     for    one  season  and   if   next   year's       council  wia-hed   to    continue   the  open     con. |  certs   they  could   assist   the       Silver j  Cornet band  and  thus even   matters  up. ;  Aid.   Hodgson' could     not     under-  i  stand Aid. New-Ion's re-mark that |  the Silver Comet band wcre ask  ing for aid while the Boy's Brigado  Band did not. If asking for $50. '  towards buying music, which tlie.  Hoys' Brigade Band asked for, was  not asking aid, ho did not know  what asking* aid was, for that was  a simple case of direct aid to the  Boy's band.-  Aid. Hodgson reported on behalf of the Fire Wardens that parties on the old millsite continued  to have their stovepipes protruding through their windows in  spite      of        the warning    which  they -had received     ' some  time ago.
