Thousand and Thousands of Pigeons

Ten thousand times ten thousands and thousands and thousands of pigeons are seen wending their way from the South until they reach the Lake shore, when they would suddenly perform a summerset, and turn back in the direction they came. The mild weather of the last few days has no doubt deceived them, and when they get in sight of the snows of Canada, they turn back. It is said that millions are found dead on the snows of the Province. — Cleveland Plaindealer, Jan. 23.
