Through the mists of the snow and

the sadly demented individual, tarried
on the streets. A blinding sheet of

The storm was such that it was not
braved by the average human being
unless prompted by some sense of
duty. There were, of course, those
whose avocations called them forth,

Heaviest Since 1898.
Observer J. M. Sherier character
ized the blizzard-like visitation as an
old-fashioned snowstorm. It was at
tended by extraordinary features,
some of which impressed one that he
was temporarily transported to the
prairies of the Dakotas,and those who
bad had tne actual experience oi a
storm in that section said the one that
blew through ltock Island yesterday
was not far from being the real arti
cle. Snow began falling at 7 o'clock in
the morning and continued incessant
ly until 11 at night, during which
period 10 inches of the beautiful
came in contact with the earth. It was
of a line light quality, and fanned by a
northern breeze" that reached a veloc
ity of 2S miles an hour, made walking
almost a physical impossibility ,' while
it was all the street cars could do to
keep on the move, with the assistance
of the cyclone sweepers. Under the
conditions, the street railway forces
put up an admirable battle against the
storm, and with slight interruptions
kept all ines open through the dav
and night. But for the excellent
work of the company in opening a way
r general travel as well as for its
own car most people would nave ex
perienced difficulty in getting down
town at all this morning.
. It was the heaviest snowfall, ac
cording to Observer Sherier's records.
Bock Island has had since the winter
of 1898, when 11 inches was dropped
at one stretch. The storm of yester
day extended over eastern Iowa,
northern Illinois, southern Wisconsin-,
northern Indiana, southern Michigan,
northern Ohio and western New York.
It was still snowing this mornipg at
Detroit and Buffalo although there is
some, talk of giving the storm the
doublecross at the latter point.

it had been stolen. This morning,

Greene county, N. Y., March 4, 1834,

a farm, which he cultivated for a
time, and afterwards, in 1866, he pur
