FIRE IN A CANADIAN TOWN.

MANY BUILDINGS IN MIDLAND, ONTARIO, DESTROYED.

TORONTO, Sept. 12.-- A fire started somewhere in the rear of Slaven's drug store, on King street, Midland, about 7 o'clock this morning and rapidly spread to the adjoining premises, occupied by Mr. Stafford, butcher. Before half an hour had elapsed, the entire range of buildings, extending from the Queen's Hotel to the corner of Dominion avenue, were a mass of flames.
