DON'T FORGET TO COME TO THE RSiODA ROYAL IN-DOOR CIRCUS AUDITORIUM FEBRUARY 15th to 20th January Weather. Barring the blizzard of the 28-nth, January was an average January, not withstanding the weather needle went below the zero point five con secutive days. As in 1908, the month was dry: roads were in excellent con dition, and for several days prior to the blizzard, much plowing was being done, and the Hurry of the '2Slh was preceded by thunder and light show ers. It is an old tradition that if it thunders in. January it will frost on the same date in May. We had thun der here on January 7th, 1907: 20th, 1895, and 20th, 1905. The coldest day of the month was IS below zero, on the 6th, but, think of it, it was 30 be low on the 18th, in 1857, and 26 de grees below on the 19th in 1892. The mean temperature for January is 23 degrees, the month just passed it was 25: so was the mean 25 in 1907, and 31 for January 190(5 and 1908. On new year's day 1862 it was 23 be low zero; this year 199 the lowest was 10 degrees above. The normal rain fall for January is 1.70 inches: for the month just passed it was .34 of an inch, which fell on the 28th. In 1908, only .02 of an inch fell and no measurable snow fell. This was the record breaker here in these particulars. In 1861 5.20 inches of rain fell and in 1898, 3.(52 inches fell the heaviest January fall ever recorded here. The normal January snow fall is 10.31 inches; for 1909 the fall was 3 inches. The heaviest January snow at this station was 17.40 inches in 1898. On Friday, January 31, 1908, we had a blizzard here. It began about 4 p. m. and by dark, a stiff gale was blow ing from the northwest, driving a dry snow by morning the wind had csased. On the 31st, 1893, a like storm pre vailed, a drop of 52 degrees occurred, and a heavy gale prevailed for some eight hours. The range of the temperature here during the month just passed has been Max Min. 10 -4 -13 -7 -8 14 Easy Picking. The mailers of tobacco tags are proving to be rich picking for the postal inspectors. A Burlington woman has been trapped three times. Each time she has been forced to pay a fine of 810, or submit to arrests. "When mailing the tobacco tags she has inserted in the package a letter stating what prize she desired in re turn. The postal authorities on opening the package, sent out as con taining no writing and under third class postage, have promptly instruct ed a postal inspector to call on her and collect the usual $10 fines. Peo ple are also warned as to writing on the margin of papers mailed out to friends. Draw a ring around the paragraph to which you desire to call attention, but write no message if you wish to escape the vigilance of the postal inspectors. District Meeting.
