should appear through the hole in

We took our time going: to the
river, and as it was a lonfj htir} Job
to cut through the le«, (which was
very thick) with tools at hand and
we were pretty wet from the melt
ing snow and the spattering water
we gathered a pile of drift wood and
had just kindled a roaring fire to
warm and dry by when we were
startled by a faint roaring sound off
to the northwest that we at first
took to be a freight train but as the
sound increased rapidly In volume
and appeared to be coming much
nearer we ran up on the bank to see
what it was.
It was then that we noticed that
it had stopped snowing and was quite
light over head but off to the N. W.
was a heavy black bank that at the
first glance could be seen to be ap
proaching us with the speed of an
express train and it required no ex
pert judgement to realise that a
genuine blizzard was upon us.
We ran for our fishing tools and
had just time to climb, the bank
again, get our bearings and start for
the end of the tree row on the Val
entine place, which was distant about
GO rods and plainly visable,) 'when
advancing wavfe of the storm struck
us with the force of a hurricane and
the air wit so full of powdered snow
that it was impossible to see a foot

possible to breathe. As there was
no fence or other land mark by
which to guide our course we could
only guess the direction by keeping
the wind over our right shoulders
which wr did, and trudged on ifndiftgt
it very ditdcult to keep our feet
the wind was increasing every min
ute. After tsurobling along ft»r what
seemed a long time, and travelling
what seemed to tta ft long distance
we suddenly discovered that the wind
had changed and was blowing square
in our backs. Then we re*Uxed
that we were lost and halted, to, if
possible get our bearings and decide
what to do next, Koert insisted
that the wind had in fact changed
and that the storm would soon be
over, and was for waiting where we
were for a little while until w*
could see out, but fwm some pre*
vious experience in bllut&rds I knew
that the wind never changed once a
biitzard had started until it had
blown itself out and soon convinced
him that we were lost and that our
only salvation was to face the wind
back until we reached the tree row
which we could hardly miss as it
was a half mile long from east to
west, so 'we started out facing the
wind with one of the larger boys at
each end of the spear handle and
George, (who was at that time quite
short-legged and fat), in the middle.
We could only go a few stpps when
we would have to stop and turn- our
backs to the wind so as to get our
breath and dig the frozen snow from
our eyes but we stuck to it and at

As there was only one room in
the house that w^s plastered and no
chimney in it we had tr» set ap our
stove in the summer kitchen, lean
