Herald and shipped it to Juar.ita.
From there it was hauled overland 20

journey the waRon overturned and the
whole outfit was "pied" on the prairie.
The? man driving the wagon did a
.splendid job of gathering up the typ?,
rot more than a pound being lost,

SNOW FROM A FOOT 10
THREE FEET DEEP AND
INDICATIONS FOR MORE
From Friday's Daily.
Snow certainly has lost its charm
for the residents cf this city, and the
lost offering cf the fleecy white par
ticles has been without uoubt the
heaviest of the winter and has been
almost continuous from 3 o'clock Wed
nesday until this morning, when it
abated somewhat. It is estimated that
from a foot and a half to two feet fell
during this time, and when the resi
dents of this city awoke this morning
it was to confront great drifts which
had accumulated during the night, and
manv of the working and business
men found it necesasry' to dig their
way out before they could reath ihj
business section of the city, and here
rrcre snow shoveling awaited them.
Main street was nlled this morning
with many who were ndeavorir.g to re
move the snow so as to make the
walks passable, and by 9 o'clock, in
most cases, the snow had a;l been re
moved from ths walks. The storm
has aparently been general from the
Rockies clear to the lake region and
ranged from all depths and it has suc
ceeded in crippling in bad shape the
train service on all lines, and par
ticularly in the northern part of the
state, where a great deal of former
trews of the past few weeks remain
ed. Those who claim to be inform'1
state that should tne snow move sue!

At least two important business
chances took place here this week,

taking effect immediately. This ne v

fore County Judge Beeson on the
complaint of Jacob Opp, a resident of
the same locality, who charged that
Brir.ton had committed an assault and
battery on him at his home on Tues

Kome shoe repairing and was sitting
on the floor, and Brinton began to
abuse the complainant, and then
