During- the preceding- night it refused to sink below 75.2. r '~ A cool wind started to blow iasfc night at i'i o'clock, but whether it was the long-promised but very dila tory change, was doubtful. Sumptuary laws, laying down what people should and' should' not wear, existed in the "good old days." . If ; they were revived, and it was made compulsory in Pirie to weaiv starched collars, the last couple of days would have filled the minds of laundry pro , prietors with visions of wealth and have encouraged them to figure on the back of an envelope, when not en gaged in changing their collars, how • many more such days would be need ed before they could relieve the local congestion by building terraces of houses.

If.the illness had been of an infectious na ture some, member or members of the family would have shown signs of it. The fact v.-as that none of them show ed any suspicion of illness within that time.
