More water tanks—Fuel famine relieved—Furniture dealers.

Special Despatch to The Globe.

Stratford, Feb. 1.—One of the results of the serious fire in this city, by which Barnsdale's store was burned, is that the water commissioners have concluded that the water tanks must be erected in order that a more efficient service may be had when required. Heretofore if the G.T.R. happened to be taking water during a fire the pressure has been much reduced.

Stratford has been almost in the throes of a fuel famine, but the situation was rendered less alarming by the arrival today of ten cars of coal. This resulted from the fact that the G.T.R. have coal preference over all other freight.
