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. If Brindle's son in conscious
mood did nothing worse, than chank
his food if the blue oxen »toed the
