Dr. Smith, the health officer of thu 1
port, a day or two apo spoke of death in
a blizzard as being tho result of Biiffoca- '
tion, and explained his meaning by say- !
ing; '"One of my clerks was two boura
in coming to mo on ono of tho days of
tho bilious blizzaul in this ?atv. He ?as
three hour-; and a half, he told in -, in
going back over thc same distance, some- .
thing like two miles. He felt no incon- |
venienco beyond tho exhaustion conse- j
(piont on the light with tho wind. He |
Blipped into doorways to e.itch his breath,
and when the wind blew too sharply in \
Iiis face turned around with his hack to
it. Death in a blizzard comes too of ten
from attempting to breast the storm. ,
Tho wind takes away ono's breath. Suf- .
focation follows. A man doubles up and
drops down and is dead. He dom not
even know what ailed him. If he had
turned his back to the blast for a
moment lie might have faced .r again
and have COMO on for another Stl'Ugglo
unharmed. "- New York Tribun*.
