G TRAINS GREAT NO'RTHERN'S LINE IS BADLY TIED UP BY TROUBLE IN CASCADES. Seattle, Jan. 3.--Snowslides in the mountains resulting from yesterday's rains and warm weather interfered with train operations again today and tied up the Great Northern's trans continental line to such an extent that overland trains are being handled be tween Seattle and Spokane over the Northern Pacific tracks. The Chicago, 31il altukee & St. Paul and the Northern P'acific are getting their trains through witihout delay, but at Great Northern hieadquait rters it was said that line \ittiuhl probably lie tied up for at least three days. Great Northern trains sent out today and stalled on the west slope of the Cas cades were ordered back to Seattle, while those held east of tihe Cascade tunnel were turned back to Leaven worth. Great Northern tel-egraph lines through the mountains are down, and the extent of the slides is not known. At Northern Pacific offices it was sail colder weather had seit in on the mountains and the danllgerous thaw which was flooding the streams and causing slides hatd Ihle)n stopped, No serious flood troublle has been expe rienced by any of lith,. railroads. Rivers are all lank full, but have not spread over the lotlatns exceplt in a few scattered places. Three feet of snow fell in the moun tains today, and it was still snowing at the summit tnonight, bout the rail road men were less coi-nce-rned than they were during last night's thaw. A report received at Great Northern headquarters late tonight said a 300 foot section of old wooden snowsheds near the west portal of the Cascade tunnel were demolished by an ava lanche late today. No trains were in the mountains and no one was hurt, but the line will be tied up for several days while the wreikage is being cleared away. Thl new ennerlte snow sheds huilt by the tGreat Northern after the dlisastrous snwivslidels three years ago withstood tloday's slides un damaged. Extra gangs of laborers were sent to the mollOiuntains tonight.

Nature didn't intend that we should wear corsets, tight collars or shoes, nor live in badly ventilated and draughty houses, nor eat and drink some of the things that we do, nor ride in street cars when we should walk. The consequence is that the body when it gets out of order must look for out side help to make the necessary repairs.
