I cials. No wire' connection was possible yesterday between this city and points west of here, but reports re ceived from trains arriving from the west indicated that the trouble is quite general as far west as Devils L*ke. Telephone lines north of here are reported to be out as far as Win nipeg, and connection '-could not be made with Crookston yesterday until considerable repair work had be.en done. A telegraph wire was in oper ation as far north as Recite. No damage has been reported south this city except at several points just south of Larimore. It is believed that great damage lias been done to the wires and poles on all branch lines northwest of this city. Seven repair crews have been sent out by the telephone company from the Twin Cities and Fargo, and as others are to arrive this morning it waB believed last night that a line will be cleared as far west as Lari more by about noon today. It was not thought, however, that the en tire west line can be cleared for sev eral days. While the rain which fell Wednes day caused an unusualtf large amount, of ice to form on the poles and wires, it. was only after the strong wind began to blow yesterday that the trouble was caused. Twen ty-one poles were blown down in one stretch on the west line and it was believed that in aJl more than 150 poles were forced to the ground. This, it was claimed, is the greatest damage that has been suffered by communication during the past year. Flicker Tales "Shop vs. Slumber. When late at night old Farmer Jones lies down to rest his weary bones, the day's events are friends or foes that make or mar his night's re pose. If Cleopatra, Brindle's calf, has smashed the pasture gate in half, or if a. wren has scared a sheep, then Jones is restless in his sleep. If ths blue oxen ran away, if rain fell on the new mown hay, if the pink roost ers had a fight, then Jones puts in a fearful night. If Buttercup upset the pall, or Dobbin switched his rawhide tail, if Buster broke his bridle check, then Jones can't sleep to save his neck. But on the other hand, by t)ing, if Jones had luck with every thing. no quarrel with goose or lamb or hog, then Jones sleeps like a fallen log.
