The Great Northern railroad had ten
men and a team employed this week in
putting ninety cars of ice into its Leav
enworth ice bouse. This ice is shipped
here from Montana. The blocks weigh
about two hundred pounds, are three
foot square and from sixteen to eighteen
inches thick. People away from here
cannot understand why we can not
freeze our own ice right here at home.
We explain this by saying up here the
air is too light and the temperature
does not get low enough to make ice.
About fifteen feet of snow has fallen
here since November first, but at no

tinct trembling of the earth was noticed
by many people . The writer felt the
frame house in which he wu at the time
tremble very distinctly and made the
remark at the time that it was an earth,
quake. This was confirmed by the
Thursday papers which report that it
was felt all over the Puget Sound coun
try. In Seattle and Tacoma it must
have been more severe than here as
people are reported as having rushed
out of their homes in fright. In many
places two distinct shocks were felt.
Here so far as known only one was no
ticed which lasted about a quarter of a
minute, and it was not so severe as to
frighten anyone. All the reports from
over on the Sound say that it was felt
about 8:22 or eight minutes earlier than
here. At Snohomish it was sensibly
