Glant waves, some of which were said to be thirty feet high, lashed and pounded at the frame structures, weakening their supports and deluging their in- teriors with water. One cottage, until recently the property of Andrew. Rogers, located near the pler, was almost a total wreck. Fire Chief Freeman Bray and members of the fire department, augmented by Chief of Police Fred Oliver and a number of vol- unteers, hurried to the beach Sat- urday evening when the storm was at its height and removed furniture from the cottages, none of which were occupied. "The walls of the pavilion will have to be fixed right away or the roof will collapse," Chief Bray in- formed the Journal in the course tots 'n teens Crclusive Clildren's Wear Fine Sportswear - Lingerie Colborne Street Phone 1303 EE WE Lo K 2 Here's power, and plenty of it . . . when you need it... whenever you want it.

Chief Bray himself was among the losers. Four of his fishing shanties, located on the east side of the Twelve Mile Creek near its mouth were flooded with about sixteen inches of water. A number of fish-nets in storage, and also some reels, were dam- aged, and the structures them- selyes will need repairs. Some nets set out in the lake were also damaged. "If it had not been for the pro- tection of the new pier the dam- age would have been much more of Bronte serious," A. Jennings, village commission, told the Journal. A number of trees in the village were blown down, while others had branches torn off by the force of the wind. Power was Off from midnight until 10.30 Sunday morning as the result of a sleet storm which followed the wind- storm. The main generator at the telephone exchange was also put out of commission for sometime, and operators were obliged to use hand cranks when putting through calls. A number of chickens own- ed by Dan Pope of Palermo be- came panicstricken during the storm, flew against the windows of their house, and were killed. Damage at Oakville was rela- tively slight, though immense waves pounded at the lake banks' and broke over the piers. Reser- voir park, on the west side, was. submerged with water, a large tree in Lakeside Park was snap- ped off, and numerous branches around town were blown down, | OBITUARIES REV. J. M. MAGWOOD Rey.
