Swirling over the prairies ft$m

berta through North and South Dako
ta, eastward to the pine forests of
northern Minnesota and on into the
lake region, a genuine blizzard raged
all last night and today over the
northwest. Out on the open prairie
the blizzard was blinding, the wind
whirling the snow in great clouds, pil
ing deep drifts in all the low places,
delaying trains and doing other dam
age of a similar character. The snow
fall during the past twenty-four hours
has been comparatively light, only
about two inches of the beautiful hav
ing descended, but the wind made the
most of what did fall.
The storm came from the southwest
from southern Wyoming and Colo
rado, and proceeding in a northeaster
ly direction swept over the whole up
per Mississippi valley region. The
storm center has now passed Pargo
and is located today in ©astern Minne

Following close on the heels of the
blizzard a cold wave Is coming from
the northwest. As usual, it started in
the Canadian provinces in the vicinity
of Medicine Hat, and is sweeping
steadily south and east, its coming
being heralded by a precipitate flight
of the thermometer cellarward. North
Dakota is just beginning to feel the
