THE DODGE CITY TIMES.
DODGE CITY. SATURDAY. JAN. 29. OUR COLD WINTER-'. The unu-uial eveiity tf the present wirier naturally r cilpi ihe remuk.blv coM .ictets ot the pist. fctitiiiira ehow ihit thin setson baa been e:eiilr crowing milder for tnanv je ire. There ieem to Us no euch wiritei bow as there were seventy or eighty yean ego, owior, 00 doubt, to the cutting down in It. is CDiin ry of the native forrerts, the Uaiinc and groath o( towcs nil cltie, and the general development of the land. Dating the -teven:een'h and eichtwnth ctntorie, there were in the Old World same wintfta bitterly memorable. In Britain, in 1664, the Thames was froz-n 1 the depth of aixly-one incho, and netrly all the bitch in the United Kingdom petUhed. In 1692, the cold wia as inlenw in Southern Europe, es pecially in Anuria, that wolves were driffn by hunger into V.enna, where ihey attacked beaa'a of Lurden and even human being! Tbrte years later many peron were frozen to d.a'b in various patt of Germany. The Cjld VVin'er, a it wai called ( r di-tinction, occurrel in 1709. when all the lifers an. I lake in Europe were ompactly frozen, and eren ihe ea Kver.il miles from abore, and the ear.h ifelt from stven to tight feet deep. Biria and lwt"t fell dead, and thou ranJs of men, women and children periahed in tb-ir bout-. In Southern France ear'y all (he vineyards were detir.yed, and hare net yet recovered from the disaster. The Adiiitic wa frozen, and much of the Medi terranean in the neighborhood of Gtnoa and Leghorn, and tie lemon and ntg groves Wire hi ghtedin mny parts of Italy. During 1 ''1G person crossed the atrai s from Copec bazei to the Province of Seiia (Luden) on the ice, and horeea and wagon lilewire. Bnow lay ten feet deep in Spa'n and Portu- g I durinz 1740, the Z lyder Zee waa covered with ke thick enough to bear a multitude of people, and four year af r enow measured on a level twenty-three ftet in Portugil. In 1771 'he E be wm frcz'n to the bottoii, and in 1776 the Danube ahowe I ice below Vienna uhl to ten fret thick. Tre winter of 1779 0 waa very revere in thi country. The Li ter cold begun in tt e miJdle of Novem ber and continued until tle'ile of Febru ary. The run's rays were rot warm enough tomtit the anow, which lay on the ground almost five months, a thick that it waa very bard to get from plice to phce. All ordin ary bodies of water wereicr-bound. Douiee tic low 1 4 and wild turkeys pershed ly thou and, eo did deer and buffalo, and wolves acd panthers, mainly from their lackef aatural food, buried under the snow. Tee Northern acd We-tern rivers were fettered by the frost, and the Cumberland was ro firmly Irczen. as far south as Nashville, that emigrant train pisstd securely over the livt r. The Delaware opposite Philadelphia contained ice of three or lot'r feet, and Ion; Is'anJ Sound and the Cbeapeake were fro zen over. Scientific" peiains hare declared that hot and cold waei often recur eve-y eleven years, as in 18-16, 1857 and 186S, and the weather-wise predict that this will prove to be one of the coldest winters known for twenty years. K. Y. Times. a A Dakota man describee a "blizzard" as "a gale of wind filled with snow and icy particles as fine as rice powder, with a tem perature of twenty degrees below zero. A genuine blizzird is as fierce that you can neither face it nor distinguish object ten feet away from you. In Dakott and Minnesota during the prevalence of a blizzard, farmers only venture out of their hou'es with guid ing ropes around their person to enable them to find their way bick." And fill there are people who recommend Dakota as a good country to emigrate to, and swell into eloquence when they declaim on it agricul tural future.
