ANUTVEBSARY OF BLIZZARD
Today is the fifty-first anniversary
of the great blizzard that swept over
the central west on January 12, 1888
and caused several deaths and im
mense loss to stock and property
through the Dakotas, Nebraska and
parts of Iowa.
The older residents of the com
munity recall well the day of the
storm and the experiences that befell
many of the residents of the county
who were caught away from rome.
Those who recall the storm state
that it was a very mild and warm
day, even more pleasant than the
weather today, up until 4 o'clock
when the wind sprang up from the
northwest and with it czfme a heavy
snow that was blown by the heavy
gale and made seeing any distance
The storm had started when the
teachers in the country schools dis
missed their scholars and allowed
them to start home and it was a real
battle for many to safely reach home
even in this section of the state
where the storm was less intense. In
the middle and western sections of
the state, where settlements were few
and the farm homes widely scattered,
the situation was filled with peril. In
some cases the teachers held the
children in the school buildings un
til the next day rather than face be
ing lost in the blinding storm.

past year show a very good gain over
