The U. S. Weather Bureau re
port for the week ending Dec. 2S ,
shows a more interesting and sea

ranges , the highest being Gi ° on
the 22nd and the lowest 20 ° be
low zero on the 27th , a total range
of 6i ° . giving a m an of li 4 ° .
Unusually high winds accompan
ied these extreme temperatures
nearly all the weeK up to the 2Sth
when the wind and the tempera
ture assumed more normal con
ditions. The highest velocity was
38 miles per hour on the 27th and
coincided nearly with the lowest
temperature. The precipitation
was very light dry snow , measur
ing about .06 of an inch. Two
cold wave warnings were issued
during the week and both verified.

By Destructive Fire
K Company's Quarters Ut/
terly Destroyed by Fire
F-re Started in Kitchen , Prolv
ably From Defective Flue ,
No Lives Lost ,
During the severe cold wave
which was accompanied by a high
wind , last Snnday night , fire broke
out in K company's quarters at
Fort Niobrara and completely de
stroyed them , leaving only the
adobe walls standing.
The fire which started in the
kitchen had gained considerble
headway before it was discovered ,
which was about 12 o'clock. The
alarm was immediately sounded
and the Post fire company soon
had the hose cart run to the scene
of the firo , hut owing to the intonso
cold and the lire plug being froz
en it was some time before water
could he thrown onto the flames.
K company's quarters were in '
about the middle of the row , and ;
tinwind being from the north |
probably saved the other quarters

learn the fire had almost envelop
ed the building before it was dis
covered and the men had no chance
to save anything but themselves
and what few clothes they could
pick up as they ran pell moll from
the burning building. Many lost
all their clothes and bedding.
No cause for the fire has been
ascertained but the general opin
ion is the that it was caused by a
The men of K company have
been assigned to the several differ
ent companies at the Fort , and
owing to the crowded condition
existing there now , will probably
be transferred to some other fort
