ton ufier it had been closed by
snow drifts, says the people in
this part of the state have no
conception as to the extent of the
storm along that line. Cornfields
were really little protection. The
snow was blown through the fields
an into the railroad cuts, and along
with the snow came a great deal of
dirt. In some places the rotary plow
bored a hole through drifts higher
than the plow itself, and these drifts
were packed, the dirt aiding In mak
ing a more difficult compound to
move. To make it worse a warm
day followed the worst and first
storm and packed the snow hard. In
some places It was almost as difficult
to move as Ice. The line is open, how
ever, and a heavy business Is being
done. State Journal.
