Detroit, March 12--(By A.P.)-
A gale that brought with it a de-
cided drop in temperature reach-
ed Detroit from out of the West
today, turned the waters of De-
troit river into a maelstrom and
made the crossing of the Wind-
sor ferries a hazardous undertak-
ing. Nearly three hours were re-
quired for one of the ferries car-
rying scores of passengers to
effect a landing on the Detroit
side. The wind is moving the ice
field down from the lakes, adding
to the peril of river traffic.
Other parts of the state suffer-
ed a greater inconvenience, sev-
eral cities were without wire
communication or else were con-.
nected with the outside world by
meagre connections. The wind-
storm left in its wake rows of
broken telegraph poles and twist-
ed and fallen wires. Several
days will be required to get
Michigan utilities back on nor-
mal basis it is believed.

A small flesh colored hot wa-
ter bottle was the secret of a
hoax by which Miss Evelyn
SLyonsof Escanaba, Michigan,
has been able to baffle and con-
vince doctors for three weeks
that she had a temperature of
114 degrees or higher.
The young woman who. had
once been a nurse concealed the
( hot water bootle in her bed, it
was said, and through pretended
j fits of coughing and hysteria
managed to place the thermome-
tee on the hot water bottle long
enough to drive the mercury to
the desired point.
