stop trains and had to be cut to per

extended in all directions within a ra

Every railroad between Baltimore
and Washington was tied up until this
afternoon and thousands who expected
to attend the inauguravion. were de

panies came reports of trees and poles
down across the tracks, and on the
Interurban electric lines the wiring
was down in places. Strenuous efforts
were mtrtie to resume service. From
the suburbs came reports of man>
poles and trees falling under the
weight of wet snow and one awning

woman was said to have been killed

Norfolk. Va., March 4.—With the
wind blowing nearly forty miles an
hour across Hampton Roads, the bat
tleships of the Sperry fleet still at an

A stcyin of great intensity swept
through Eastern Virginia. Maryland
and North Carolina last night with a 1

Coming from the north and north
west the winds in many places brought
with them freezing weather, but the
temperature in Norfolk and vicinity
only fell three degrees, and the many
fruit trees whose blossoms had been
brought forth by summer-like weath

light snow that fell for several hours
thi« forenoon.
With freezing weather tonight, the
fruit trees will more than likely suffer
to a great extent with probably half of

hog fat is often impure and always indi
