Mountain! of Snow.
Friday's blizzardwhich old timers
concede was the most severe since the
one of March, 1872, which lasted three
days spent its fury about midnight,
and Saturday dawned bright and fair.
Fortunately the temperature during the
blizzard did not range low, eight above
zero being the minimum. The fall of
snow, as recorded by the local weather
bureau was slightly in excess of seven
inches, but it drifted badly, leaving big
patches of bare ground here and there
while at other points would be drifts of
snow from two to fivo feet deep.
Drifts four feet deep on tho sidewalks
were not unusual while the center of
the streets would be nwept bare. In
some instances merchants had to dig
their way to the entrance of their
stores. To remove these immense drifts
was no small task, and it was Saturday
noon before all were removed.

Pittsburgh Perfect Fence
Why we use Open Hearth Wire
in Preference to all other kinds
Remember the iron wire your father
and your grandfather had around the
farm ? Good old wire, wasn't it ?
The Special Open Hearth Wire, as we
make it today from our own (secret)
formula, is more like the old time iron
wire than that used in any other make
It takes longer to make this special
Open Hearth Wire, but it excels in
strength, toughness and long life, and
consequently makes the most service
able, satisfactory fence. The wire is the
very foundation of fence-durability.
