the coldest storm known to the present
generation. Its severity was much in
creased or diminished by the situation.
Where' there was a long range for the
wind with good places for lodgement, it
was worse, the banks were large and the
freezing qualities of the air place it in
the front rank. Cellars that never froze
before have disappointed, their owners,
and we hear of apples, potatoes, in some
cases all the canned fruit being ruined
and much more not yet discovered.
From Friday noon till Monday noon the
town was snow bound, travel of any kind
being impossible. But few of the east
and west roads were opened before Tues
day. Orders were sent out by the select
men that' work in opening roads would
be paid tor, as a consequence the work

were 20 feet deep. Some of the farmers
had to dig a greater part of the day Sun
day to reach the main traveled road.
For the first time in years there was no
service in the churches aa the reads

would swell so that I could scarcely sea. and I
could not stand tha light. I could hardly sleep
at night, because the pain was too great. After
a short time white spots cam on my eyes, mak
ing my sight dim. so that I eonld hardly distin

would bo worse than erer. In tbe spring ot ISU
