The storm of last Saturday and
Sunday assumed the proportions ot
n big blizzard a few miles west ol
Broken Bow. Hero the wind blew
a gale and HOIIIO snow fell , but the
moisture consisted mostly of rain.
About Morna the snow JH reported
at least a foot deep , and from there
on to the west line of the state the
s < orm was a genuine bli//.ard.
Cattle are reported to Ijavo suffered
greatly on the ranges , and no doubt
the loss will bo lariro. The early

morning was snowbound at Ard--
inore , freight train No. 45 only
reached Ansolmo , while the local
evening passenger only oame as far
west as Ravenna. On the Union

all trains were delayed from twelve
to twenty-four hours. Tuesday
morning a person looking to the
west could distinguish a line o
white extending north and south as
far as the eye could see. It was an
eight or ten inch snow on the West
Table , twelve miler west of here
while at Broken Bow it had al
disappeared. Thn precipitation at
this place was 1:13 : inches.
