At London, Ontario, on Feb. 24, 1868, about 500 tons of a┬ádark-colored substance fell with snow in a violent storm (Chemical News, 35-183). The fall occurred across an area 50 miles by 10 miles. Under a microscope, the substance consisted mainly of vegetable matter “far advanced in decomposition,” according to Dr. A. T. Machattie, F.C.S.
