Sequel to a quarrel with a married woman on King street east near William, shortly after last midnight, Irvin "Red" McKinley, 30, of Princess street south, was arraigned before Justice of the Peace J. F. Fletcher here this morning on a charge of assault causing bodily harm to Mrs. Elsie Ditmer, 149 King street east. McKinley was not asked to plead and was remanded to jail until Monday when he is to appear before Magistrate C. S. Woodrow. According to police, McKinley and Mrs. Ditmer became involved in an argument just east of the intersection of King and William streets. Both were hurling epithets at each other and when Mrs. Ditmer started walking west. McKinley suddenly struck her on the mouth and knocked her down, police reported. Mrs. Ditmer was injured about the mouth and taken to Dr. Allan Stewart's office where four stitches were required to close the cuts. McKinley was arrested by Constable Fred Peardon. pevlal Thr nr SIMCOE. June 11. In an interview with J. K. Perrctt, secretary of the Ontario Flue-Cured Tobacco Marketing Association, it was learned today that approximately one-third of the total tobacco acreage in the Norfolk district was damaged by week's wind storm. "A check-up has revealed that about one-third of the 53.000 acres in this district was damaged by the wind storm," said Mr. Perrett. "The greater part of this damage, as far as can be ascertained, was in the area between Delhi and Otterville. Norfolk was the hardest hit county in the tobacco belt, Essex, Kent and Oxford escaping with comparatively little damage." He stated that replanting is being carried out on all the farms affected by the storm. He also denied rumors that there will be a shortage of plants necessary for replanting purposes. "At first it was thought that there might be a plant shortage," he said. "However, although the supply is low, there will be enough to do all replanting that is tfffsAA Xh sW Vessel Moveinentsl Give Odds For in custody on a charge of attempting to burglarize the safe of the Coca-Cola Company at 274 Burwell street last night.

Sam Ward, in other words, was the sort of man who might conceivably be a fascinating letter writer, if for no other rea.con than the fact that he had got around. But his letters, to me at least, are extremely disappointing: they are occasionally amusing, often informative about the details of his time and very often dulL Mrs. Elliott should. I think, have been much more rigorous in her editing, for Sam Ward was not really important enough to justify the size of this collection. If he had been a world figure, there might have been reason to include the boyhood letters, for example, but they are no morp than rather stilted repetitions of what many boys write to keep their fathers in a state of blissful unawareness.

I'rrwrn lute AN ALL NEW VARIETY REVUE STOMACH TROUBLE 'PHE quality that distinguishes a good letter from a dull one is difficult to analyse. For letter writing is net a professional and public performance, in spite of those eighteenth century gentlemen who picked the best phrases from their letters and fitted them together with an eye to publication. Very often literary pretentions smother the life and genuineness entirely and on the other hand a matter-of-fact catalogue of trivialities doesn't make good reading unless you are devoted to vour correspondent. The secret of a good letter lies somewhere in between the mannered brilliance of Lord Chesterfield and the simpler process of the schoolboy who writes: "Dear Mother. I am fine and hope you are too. Please send five dollars." It seerhs to depend on honesty, on freh perception and en complete informality. And it is never easy to predict who w.U Teveal those qualities in a letter. What inspired these remarks was a new bock by Maud Howe Elliott called "Uncle Sam Ward and His Circle." Here in some seven hundred pages Mrs. Elliott has collected practically every letter her uncle wrote and a good many that were written to him. Her book is not a biography, for she has not done any more than to comment rather casually on the letters and on the passages from Ward's "Memoit;" which she quote. Sam Ward was In many ways an exceptional and interesting personality. He was one of the glittering figures of the last century, a man who. according to legend, became a millionaire on three different occasions and a pauper on as many, whose Washington dinners are still remembered and whose poetry is forgrtn.
