Issue 16 and Volume 39.

THIS CAT CAME BACK. A tailless Manx cat had been driven away for some offense from her place of abode at Cross house. Ballasalla, Isle of Man. After having been away for a considerable time, she came back one night unexpectedly, and without the knowledge of her former owner and mistress. At midnight the old lady was awakened by the loud and persistent mewing of Tabby outside the bedroom door. On netting tip to shoo her away, she found the house filled with smoke and had barely time to escape before the flames utterly destroyed her home. Poor Tabby will not be shooed away again.
