PILED TO GREAT HEIGHTH
Traffic on the Railway and Street Car
Tracks Is Considerably Delayed
as a Result.
After being aroused by the com
manding voice of his paternal majesty
an' hour earlier than customary this
morning, the school boy vividly re
called Whittier's "Snow Bound" as he
alternately plied the shovel and placed
bis hands to his ears till school time.
The nor'easter during the night hus
tled the flakes .ff the level spots and
cuddled them around the corners in
drifts from four to six feet high. It
was these latter which tormented the
youngster for they surpassed anything
of the kind seen In this section for
the last two or three years.
Truilte In Iehijel.
After being kept busy during yes
terday the Tri-city Railway company
sw.eepers were hurried out early this
morning and iieti to go over the dif
ferent lines ag iin as yesterday's work
was unnoticeabie after the further fall
and shift of the Know during the night.
The street cars were unable to keep
then- schedules during the eaily morn
ing hours. Railways generally were
hours behind time. Mails were nearly
all late from one to eight hours and
many trains were annulled.
Country Itondn Iiupntinnlile.
Country roads today were almost im
passable in many places. The drifts
are reported to range in depth up to
six or seven feet in some spots. Rural
mail carriers were hard hit and a num
ber of them in the county were unable
to make their routes.
Observer Sherier of the local weath
er station reports that there are seven
inches of beautiful on the level.
