Intense Cold in Minnsota. Four
menfrosento death—one hundred and
forty sheep buried in a snow drift. The
Wilton 'Minnesota) News of December
■7, says: "Mr. H. G. [Green, of Alden
township, Freeborn county, gives us th.
sorrowful news of the probable death of
four men in his county, by frezing, on
Tuesday of last week, tlie 12th instant:
"Three brothers, whose names he bad
not learned, started together from Mov
er's grocery, at White Walnut lake, in
the edge of Faribault county, for their
home in Rice Lake Township, Freeborn
county, five miles distant, since which
time they have not been heard from.
They have been searched for In every
direction in vain. The supposition is
thnt they got lost, aud perished with
i-olil, ami now lie buried in the snow on
the prairie.
" A Mr. James Wood, of Rice Lake
township, between three and four
o'clock p. m., of the same day, started
to go to a neighbor's where his' wife was
visiting, a mile away, but did not reach
the [dace. Mr. Wood has been (racked
a distance of some twelve miles, but not
found. His neighbors tracked him, first,
lv a sunt west direction, next, in a north
east direction, ami finally iv a southeast
direction to Zuraboo creek, where all
trace of him was lost.
1 "We shall await with anxiety further
news from these missing men. The
i storm of tbe 12th was much more severe
than' was generally supposed by those
who were so fortunate as to be at home
-at thu time. We hear of many seven
cases of freezing.
"Mr. Twist, of Carlstown township,
in the same county, had oue hundred
and forty sheep caught out in tho same
. storm, and entirely drfted under. In
digging them out he has found twenty
-1 five dead, and there are a number not
yet found."

Wholesale Him-'Focation. A terrl
hle tragedy oi-i-iii-reti on tlie morning of
yesterday on West Lake street, between
Desplelnes and Union. Six men in tbe
prime of life were stricken down in
mortal agony by the escape of gas from
i pipe in their sleeping room. Five
were found dead, and Ihe other so near -*-»*
the edge of the tomb tbat his recovery
is very doubtful.
The liouso in question Is No. 137 West
Lake street, kept by H. C. Soble aa a
German saloon and boarding house. In
the lower story the proprietor dispenses
lager aud the'more intoxicating bever
ages to the public, and in the cellar
keeps his boarding house, while th*
door above' is divided into sleeping
rooms, occupied chiefly by German
laborers.
Mix men retired to rest on Saturday
night, tlio time ranging from 11 o'clock
nil a little pust midnight. At 8 o'clock
yesterday morning, break fust being
ready below, the boarders were sum
moned, and alter waiting awhile with
nut any of the occupants of that room
making (heir appearance, the proprietor
went up to hasten ihem. A knock at
the door being unanswered, "and a
second and third meeting with no re
ipouse, the door was opened. A terri
ble stench met the intruder, forcing him
to beat a hasty retreat—the room waa
full of gas. Through the opened door
the poisonous matt-rial rushed, filling
tlie whole upper story, and presently
the ordinary atmosphere had gained
admission sufficient tn allow of the room
being explored. A horrible sight met
the view. Six Inanimate forms lay in
the stillness of the grave, their faces
iwollen, their mouths filled with froth.
.Ul are dead! No, not all! A slight
movement is perceptible in one of those
bodies, a hurried, short, yet slowly per
ceptible breathing in that stifling at
mosphere. He is seized and carried out
into another room and medical attend
in cc summoned. He lives.
Subsequent search revealed the avenue
.brough which the destroying angel had
■nteieil to do his fell work. In tbe Gen

ns follows in relation to Christ Kindle :
Why is ifthat you- native born Amer
icans spell this word in a way to make
it not only lose Its lovely sense, but eveu
to make it entirely senseless! "Kris*
Krinkle" you spell it, and if nobody
cheeks you in tliis- obnoxious ortho
graphy, a stupid, senseless word will re
cieve the privilege of augmeuting the
English vocabulary, when by a very lit
tle, care it could be enriched with a
beautiful, friendly and sensible expres
sion Christ Kindle means the little
child—Christ; Jesus, the little child;
•%? Enfant Jesus, as the French say.
[The evening before Christmas the le-
I geud lets the child Jesus visit the houses,
where there are some good natured fel
low children.]
In France, they have no Christmas
trees, but nevertheless, the children
know that " V Enfant Jesus" is coming,
and they put their shoes outside of tbe
house-doors, to And on tbe next morn
ing a copper, or even a silver or gold
piece in them. L' Enfant Jemts they
know, rewards in this way, their gocd

there is no house without a Cbristmaa

children during the year hoped to get
The most lovely and innocent feast, in

the "tour de monde"—\s it not proper
while you Americans have accepted tbe
