The wife of a railroad agent
went oat shortly after the stor.n
had commenced lo bring in
clothes from the line. The
wind blew a gale and the snow
fell in blinding clouds. A gar
ment was blown out of her
hands and she ran to pick it
up. Before she was aware ol
it she was some distance from
the house, and upon turning
to go back she lost her way and
vainly wandered about trying
to gel home. AH this time she
was growing very numb and
cold. At last nhe ran against u
house, which proved to be u
new one in which a few car
penters were at work. Feel

One of the saddest among
the many distressing cases re
ported is that ot a sleighing
party ol six young couples,
with their driver, who were all
found Irozen to death, buried
almost out ol sight in (he snow.
A man and wife were frozen
'o death near Medaha. The
liU'band stopped his carriage
with a view of discovering
where his house was, and al
though but a short distance

dreading his fate, after several
hours' waiting, started to dis
cover his whereabouts and suf-

the horses was dead, and I he

'Among a number of section
men at work on the day of the
storm near Si. James, was one
who lived a number of miles
away. He was unable to reach
home, and his wife became
alarmed for his safety, and he
was uneasy about his family.
Imagine his joy on Thursday
when a shepherd dog belong
ing to him came bounding into
St. James with a little leather
bag attached to his collar, in
which was a letter from his
wife containing the joyful in
telligence that they were "all
well at hom," and asking lor
news of her husband. Anoth
er letter was written, inform
ing-the wife that th hurband
was an fe and would return
home as soon as he could reach
there. This letter war placed
in tho leather bag, and the
faithful animal told to "go
homo." Away started the an

snow drills, and arrived safely
at home with ihe precious news
so anxiously looked lor by the
wailing wife and mother. The
next day the husband reached
home. This same dog was al

as he could manage to provMt
for them in some way. He took
ill the little children into hit
house, it being too small to ac
commodate all, and the large
children stayed in the rchool
house until the storm was over.
F'om Mr. Joel B. Kennedy,
of St. Peter; interesting partic
ulars are obtained concerning
the late storm. Mr. Kennedy
was drivinc at a point a few
miles distant from Like Chrys

but Gliding that he must inevit.
ably perish . if he continued t

his horses and undertook to re

yards distant. After flour.dcr

suddenly came opon a well, and
reasoning f.om this that a house
must be near by, he finaly sue
ceeded in fi. tiling it and rescuing
himself from the immediate per
il of death in the drifts. Hi wan
saved, but his face looks as if it
had been toasted and blistered
in the fire.
One of the saddest chapters
of that polar visitation, is the
reported death Irom freezing
of seven little school children
near Fort Iiidgley, which oc
curred while they were endeav
oring to return homeward in
the furious storm. Without
strength lo successfully resist
the overwhelming sweep ol the
wind or the blinding snow
which met them Irom every
point, their struggles could
have been only of brief, sad du
ration. Rumors are also current that
twenty-four men have been
found frozen dead in the vicin
ity of Sleepy Eye Lake, on the
Winona and St. Peter road, and
nine in the vicinity of Maaelia.

Language Of Animals.
M. IIouzeau nnintaina that
not only dors each group ot an
imals possess language which is
understood by otlrer members ot
the same grnnp, but that they
can learn to understand the lan

for instance, perfectly under

hens have one danger signal for
the approach of birds of prey,
another for that of a terrestrial
animal or for a man. When the
latter was sounded the dogs
would rush out and bark, while
to the former they paid no atten

coocludes that fowls have the
power of expressing slightly dif
