12 THE CJLUJLTH’JL LXJMBERMAH May, 1892 HISTORIC ELMS. ‘J*1 HE RE are some fine old elm trees 911 the banks of the River Wye, one of the most delightful streams in England. Some two or three of these trees being considered dangerous, have recently been cut down and sold. On being sawed a number of bullets as large as marbles were found embedded in the trunk of one of the trees. It is believed that they were discharged from guns during the civil war in the reign of Charles I., when Hereford was besieged, and ultimately surrendered to the Parliamentary forces. Thus, if conjecture is correct, the birthplace of Nell Gwynne and David Garrick fur- nishes, 250 years afterward, an interesting reminiscence of the civil war, in which, by the way, Hereford lost two of its churches. ODD STUFF. A California "big tree" has been sel- ected in Tulare county to be shown at the Exposition at Chicago in 1893. A com- mittee of the Board of Trade, after an extended tour of inspection, picked out a tree measuring eighty-seven feet nine inches in circumference at the base, eighty- five feet above the ground and sixty-five feet at a height of sixteen feet. A cypress log six feet long, four feet through, weighing 14,400 pounds, was re- cently cut near Fordyce. It showed its age to be 384 years. At Glen Allen, on the morning of the 27th ult., Walter Quickfall’s sawmill was destroyed by fire, with a large quantity of lumber. The cause of the fire is not known. Loss about $5,000; no insurance. Rochester Bros. : : COMMISSION AGENTS Limits bought and sold on commission. Limits trav- elled and carefully prepared. Estimates given.

STEWART, dts DEALF.R IN Correspondence Solicitep Office, 24 Manning Arcade King St. West Toronto, Ont, TO THE SUPREME COURT. ‘T’HE noted case of James Tennant against the Union Bank of Canada went to the Supreme Court on the 27th ult. It arose over the failure of the old lumber firm of Christie, Kerr & Co. When in business the firm borrowed some $55,000 from the Union Bank and yave warehouse receipts against logs in the bush. Mickle, Dyment & Co., lumber- men of Barrie, and other creditors seek to invalidate these warehouse receipts and use Assignee Tennant’s name in the suit. Chancellor Boyd dismissed the action in 1890 and the Court of Appeal followed with a similar decision, with the exception of Justice Burton, who dissented.
