Fierce Wind and Heavy Snow for
Sixty Consecutive HoursIm
mense Snow BrifftS"Men and
Sheep Frozen to Beiilii
SHEPMA^, Wy., March 12.On
/Thursday about midnight a storm
of snow and wind set in, covering
the entire country from Green River,
Wyoming, to North Platte, Neb.,
a distance of 550 miles. I proved
to be far the severest storm known
.since the construction of the Union
Pacific railroad. The storm cona
tinued without abatement until Sun
clay morning, making it impossible
for persons to go out without almost
certain death. Since the storm sub
sided the bodies of a number of per
sons have been found who died of
exposure. Two soldiers perished
"between Foirt Russell and Cheyenne,
a distance of three miles. Four men
with an ox*team were caught fifteen
miles northwest of Cheyenne three
of them reached the railroad Sunday,
terrible frozen, and will probably
lose their feet, and the fourth man
and. cattle perished. Three ranch
men were found dead a short distance
above Cooper Lake. I is probable
this is only a small part of those that
have died from the effects of thebesides
sprm. One ranchman lost ten
thousand sheep near Egbert Station.
,'jVIany other cases are reported of
loss of stock. Snow is drifted in
immense piles wherever there is
any place to form a drift. Every
cut in the railway track was filled
with snow, and sandsheds were also
full... The railway company had
their forces out before the storm
subsided on Sunday, and havp been
constantly at work with four snow
plows at different points with all the
men they could work.-* The differ
ent forces met at this point to-night
at 9 o'clock', having cleared 550 miles
)n less than three days. All trains
will be immediately started, and no
further detention is anticipated. The
passengers were all located where
they could be well fed and taken care
of,' and those who have been located
where they could see the progress of
the storm and the efforts made to
open the road, accord the railroad
officers and men the greatest praise
lor the' result accomplished.,.
nevolent contribution
Our Religion is in a diseased condition. Did not
think Burns would ever get to be so orthodox as to
be exclusive. We have two religious organizations,
Methodist and Congregational,"in lull blast The
C'ongregationistshavi! built a chnrchat the station.
It is a good thing to have a church in ruuningorder.
The growing intelligence of our community de
mands a health orthodoxy. Last summer a" cor
respondent in the HEKALII stated tht a certain di
vine intended to give a sermon on kissing to the
young peopleNow that the church is built I
think that we should have the sermon. It would
not hurt orthodoxy in the least. A sermon on kis
sing in all its variations is one of the elements out
of which social composition springs, and must in
variably strengthen the social element of orthodox v.
Kissing is a necessity, and in harmony with cult-
ure,- growth, and progress. Ho nice it would
sound to hear that sermon in the new church. I
would be inspiring. I do wish our orthodoxy would
recognize the fact that no harm can attach to the
discussion of such a rich theme, but good, real, sub
stantial good.
The Methodists hold their meetings in the school
house. As long as there is a church at the Station,
I wonder that there is not Christian spirit enough
toinvite them to occupy the building part of the
time? It would certainly be a compliment to the
intelligence of the body who owns thechurch, to be
little more inendly towards denominations la
boring on the same field. Kxninple is the best
preacher. We do hope that the day will come
when the shepherds shall draw in their horns, and
give us a practical demonstrations of what consti
tutes Christian love. A tradesunion would work
admirably. Let us have it. We hope that the
thing will succeed, for tiothin:: el: but that will
bring about the inillenium. I.IBEKTY.

MARCH IS, 1878. S
The weather, alter storming last week, has finally
settled down like a young married couple iust com
mencing housekeeping and the farmer's are all
busy sowing wheat, that is, those who have ani
seed to sow.
Town politic* have been almost as
stormy as the weather. Golden Gate was duly rep
resented by aspirants for political honors as usual,

The people of this place were thrown into a state
of great excitement on last Friday evening by the
report that Marsh and family were consumed
by tire, also the almost palatial residence hi which
the whole family were sleeping tit the time of the
accident, lour or five persons, upon hearing of
the fire, immediately repaired to the spot where
one of the most heart-rending scenes met their gaze,
that mortal eyes ever saw. The remains of the
wholi- family, the blackened walls, the all that was
sickening, (it almost makes my blood cnrdle to
write.) while my informant is reporting to me of
the scenes that were beheld on that awful night of
the whole family not one remains to tell the tale.
