STORMS ARE AN
EVEN YEAR APART
Blizzard Similar but More Se
vere Than Present One Came
Feb. 25-26 in 1912.
Today's snow storm brings to mind
the fact that one year ago today some
Ight Inches of snow covered the earth
In this vicinity and seriously Impeded
traffic of all kinds. From F. E. Rob
tins at the Rock Island arsenal bridge
office It was learned that on the even
ing of Feb. 25, last year, a snow storm
commenced much as did the one of
last night and today. Last year's
storm was heavier, however, for by
noon Feb. 26 eiifht inches of the white
had fallen. Pridge line cars were un
able to move ti:iil 11 o'clock in the
nvurilrg and the Rock Island rond was
tied up to such an extent that only
61 freight cars went west out of here
during the day when the number
should have lwn nearer the F.10 mark.
The present fall of snow is one of
If not the heaviest thus far this win
ter. The precipitation began late yes
terday afternoon ani steadily Increas
ed until it assumed almost the pro
portions of a Mizzard.
Although the local train Fervice has
not been affected a great deal as yet,
railroad men predict that if the pres
ent storm continues, the traffic will
be greatly Impeded. The storm seems
to be heavier' in the east, and freight
trains from there are b-hind time.
Passenger service on the Rock Island
has not suffered any appreciable in
terference on the part of the elements.
Burlington trains today were on time
almost invariably. The Tri-City Rail
way company manned its sweepers,
which were kept busy the greater part
of the night.
J. R, Cunningham, the Galesburg i
man who. by the expenditure of 50
cents fell heir to a $2,00-) automobile,
awarded by the Ell.s of this city, ar-
! rived in Rock Island this morning to 1
claim his property. He was accom-
j panied by his daughter. The Gales- !
burg man was unaware of his good '
j fortune until Saturday, when he ro
Iceived h letter from the local lodge,
apprising him of the fact that the ail- ,
tomobiie belonged to him. Mr. Cun- !
'. ningham had forgotten all about the
matter, and stated this morning that
! after reading the Ittor he almost
I dropped dead with surprise. TA'hen
asked if he intended to retain the ma
chine for his own use, the lucky Gales
1 burer rep'ied in the negative. "I ex
. pert to sH the oar by all means, pro
vrW 1 receive a good offer," he sail.
; Mr. C'unninsham is a cripple, havii'fg
; lost one leg, and there is a general J
i feeling of satisfaction here that he
; was awarded the car. !

bills contracted by my wife, Mrs.
