Firemen Suffer Injuries.
A number of firemen sulTou-d more
or less severe Injuries as It result of
ho flames. Those hurt wore :
Harry Watt , Injured about the
nose by falling timbers which struck
him In the face.
John MIcbaelson , Injured oil the
bridge of the nose by falling timbers.
Fire Chief Kern , feet fro/on.
Ben neemer , feet fro/.en.
Tony DonklliiKor. feet fro/en.
Many received frozen oars.
Cause of the FJre.
The lire started In the rear of the
saloon building and was presumably
caused by the explosion of * a lamp
which h'ad been loft lighted for the
purpose of preventing the water pipes
from freezing. This , however , Is not
known to be true. The bla/o was dis
covered shortly before 1 o'clock. It
was seen by Nightwatchninn Carl I'll-
gor and by people In the restaurant.
Within a short time tlio tlrst alarm
was turned In and by 1 o'clock a
stream was playing on the bla/o.
Every llro company In the city with
the exception of the Fourth ward cart ,
was called to the scene of couilagra
tion. And with the four streams of
water and the hooks and ladders , most
extraordinary work was accomplished.
Four Alarms Sounded.
There were four long alarms sound
ed for rousing out the slumbering tire
fighters. So bitterly cold was the
night that it was a terrilic task to
get out of a warm bed after midnight
to attend any sort of a lire. And , not
knowing what kind of n blaze It might
be not being assured that It was not.
as many others frequently are , a mere
bunch of smoke , dozens and dozens
of the firemen , after hearing the first
nlarm , rolled over in bed and went
back to sleep. *
At 1:15 : the second alarm was sound
ed , at 1:30 : came the third shriek of
the sea-lion whistle nt the pumping
Etation and at 2:30 : the last shrill call
for ht'ln was given. With so many
different summons , following one an
other at such brief Intervals , the fire
men who had nt first gone back to
sleep began to realize that there must
be a dangerous blaze and by the
fourth alarm almost every fireman In
town had turned out.
Pressure Was Great.
The water pressure , pumped tip by
Engineer August Grauel nt the city
pumping station , was magnificent. It
sent streams into the burning build-
Jngs which literally tore the wood
work Into shreds. From the rear two
streams were forced Into the flame ,
from the front was one and from
above , the nozzlemen standing on top
of the Durland building , was the
Booze Flows Freely.
"When It was seen that it was an
utter impossibility to save the saloon ,
I'Oozo began to freely flow. It was
"on the houso" this time , and every
body's turn to drink. It was one of
the times when all get to drink with
otit making anybody buy And It went
a long way toward relieving the pains
of I ho intensely cold winter night.
M.iny Pair * of Mitten * .
Hundreds of pairs of cotton mit
tens , fn'Hli from the counton ) of ad
joining Ntoro buildings , were uoed up
by the courageous llremen who han
dled Iho IIONU during the long light.
Chief Keru authorized the use of all
the niltteim that were needed for pro
tection against llio Ice and a coimtant
Htream of men poured In and out of
the Star clothing store , the IX'gnor
hardware wloro and the Wide Awake
itlothhiK Hi' " " , I" 'lueHt ' of Iho hand
Flnnlly Get It Under Control.
After lighting agalnm the Ilamos as
bravely an ever firemen could light ,
for live long , cold hours , the depart
ment succeeded In getting the dcslrnc-
tlvo rednesH under control and at l !
o'clock Chief Kern was sat lulled that
thure WIIH no more Impending daii40r |
to other blocks.
During the Imttlo In the Hlghl dark-
IIOHH , the fire boys were In many In-
Htailcon coated with Ice. The nozzle-
men mid tlio olllcors of the depart-
mont were caps which were covered
with a quarter of an Inch of glistening
Ice and Icycles hung dismally down
acrosB their fncos. Many of thonoz-
xloiuon utooil In their positions , hold
ing the heiuUi of the mighty streams
of water Into the heart of the heal ,
during the onllro time of the burning
and with the temperature BO low it Is
llltlo wonder that fiozon foot resulted.
Gloomy Wreck Today.
AH a .result of the lire , the site of
the Turf Exchange Is a gloomy wreck
loday. The walls totter In like thu
frame of a drunken man and all else
Is a picture In the black and white
effect perfectly black charred portions
tions and perfectly white pillars of
Ice which resulted from tlio water.
The street In front of the burned
buildings is an Ice pond for fair and
might. If It wore a little smoother , bo
used for skating during the next six
months of winter.
Insurance Gets a Lift ,
While the buildings across the
street were enveloped in llame , Sol
( ! . Mayer , proprietor of the Star
clothing store , saw impending danger
to his stock If the fire should over
jump across Norfolk avenue. "Wish
1 had $2,000 more Insurance , " ho re
marked. An Insurance man heard
the remark and within a half hour
hud- delivered a policy to Mr. Mayor.
Commends the Work.
W. NY. Roberts , an Insurance agent
whoso Intercuts were so well protect
ed by the fire boys , was enthusiastic
In his commendation today of the
work of the fire department.
"I was Insurance adjustor for one
company during twelve years , " said
Mr. Roberts , "anil was for a long tlmo
chief of pollco at Carthage. III. , and
I have ne ver In my llfo seen so olll-
clout a volunteer fire department. I
want to express my thanks to them
for the way they handled that blaze. '
Hoze Froze Afterward.
After the lire was over and the long
strings of hose had been hung on the
dry racks In the fire apartments , the
rubber tubes froze with what water
remained in them and Chief Kern yes
t onlay had a hard time getting them
thawed out so that he might bo read )
to bundle another blu/o. The entire
lot of it , however , has now beet
placed In readiness for any emergency

The report Is an follows :

the duties of that office.

within. For It'h always fair weather
when jolly drummers get together ,
and life didn't drag with them for a

Osnard enjoyed rare fun this morn
ing when guests who had been al

call for 7 o'clock woke up at 8 and
looked at his watch. Then ho began
to rave. He had outlined his trips for
the day so that ho could niako just so
many towns and could finish the

early freight. Ho wanted to get to
O'Neill today. He would have stopped
at Battle Creek anil Tllden and Mead

Nellgh and CIcarwator and Ewlngand
the next day he could go to Atkinson
and Bassett and Stuart and Newport
and Lung Pine. It was all laid out.
Then by making Alnsworth and Val
entino the last of the week ho could
take a run for homo. But ho hadn't
been called. "Why didn't you call

no trains were running bis face
changed. Ho was a happy man. He

Rural Route Carriers Report That'Yes-
terclay Was the Worst Day They
Have Ever Experienced In Travers
ing Country Roadways.
In splto of llio fact that there was
little of a storm In the air all day
long yesterday , the conditions In the
country roads and In the cuts on the
railroad tracks of the northwest
proved It to he one of the worst days
In many a winter for this section of
the country. It Is believed that a se
vere blizzard , which raged at Chad-
ron Wednesday night and which ran
down the Elkhorn valley during the
night , passed over all of the territory
along the Northwestern railroad ,
striking Omaha later In the day.
AH n result of the blowing which
had been done all night , cuts and
roads were so completely blocked that
all railroad tralllc was carried on with
great dlJIIculty yesterday , and some
trains were unable to leave or enjor
Norfolk during the entire twenty-four
hours. The rural roujo carriers re
port , too , that It was the worst day
to travel across country which they
have ever experienced. They were
utterly unable in many instances to
gain headway against the snowdrifts.
Rural Route Troubles.
Rural Route Carrier Warren Rouse
was stuck in a snowdrift on his route
and unable to proceed further. He
finally unhitched his team of horses ,
placed one of the animals In the barn
of a. farmer , together with hip wagon ,
and rode horseback on the other into
, T. W. Rouse , father of Warren
ROUSP , and carrier on route No. 2 , was
forced by the snow to eliminate ten
miles of his trip altogether , and re
turn to town along Into in the after
Carrier Show had the longest trip
ho has over known , the drive requir
ing more than eleven hours. Ho was
blocked In a drift and had to have as
sistance before he could got out. He
avrlvod home at S o'clock last night.
Lee Tipton reported that it was the
worst trip ho has ever made. Carrier
Ed Beds also experienced great dif
ficulty in getting along the rural roads.
Railroad Cuts Blocked.
As a result of the drifting In the
cuts on the railroads , the Union Pa-
cillc road was tumble all day long to
run any trains either In or out of Nor
folk and the passenger , due out of
the city at 11 a. m. . made a short run
into the country , ran against a huge ,
white bank of crystals , was unable to
dig its nose through the drift and re
turned to the city for the rest of the
day , having missed one trip. The
freight train , duo here at noon , was
blocked at Oconee and unable to con
Snow plows were necessary on the
Northwestern , both the main line and
the branches , and on the Chicago , St.
Paul. Minneapolis & ' Omaha. With
the drifts that they encountered , the
trains did remarkably well to move
as nearly on schedule time as they
23 Below Zero Today.
As the wind died down , the mer
cury dropped also , during the day. and
last night the cold wave that had been
predicted , arrived. Before morning
the thermometer had registered twen
ty-three degrees below zero , making
a variance during twenty-four hours
of just thirty-eight degrees in one
Trains today returned In nearly all
instances to their regular schedules.
A Strong Northwest Wind Drifted the
Snow Badly Today and Snow Plows
are Working Overtime Sheets of
Blinding Particles Filled Air.
IFrom Tuesday's Dally. ]
Another severe storm , approaching
the ferocity early this morning of an- ,
old fashioned. blizzard , swept over
Nebraska today , blew snow into drifts ,
blocked railroad tralllc and made life
miserable for the already long suffer
ing public.
At 7 o'clock this morning the sheets
of snow were blown so fiercely from
the northwest that it was Impossible
to see a block away and people driv
ing were In constant danger of collld
ing with other teams which might at
any moment come along. After a half
hour of such severity , the loose snow
seemed to .have been pretty well
whipped tmt and the air cleared perceptibly
coptibly , though the wind continued.
Train Traffic Suffers.
Train tralllc was again n victim of
the storm and railroading today Is a
hard proposition. All freight trains
on the Northwestern were annnled
for-the day , though an effort was
made to ntn passenger trains. The
morning train from Bonesteel ar
rived in the city twenty minutes late ;
No. 0 , the main line passenger from
the west , was two hours and a half
late out of Long Pine and will prob
ably ho at least that late In Norfolk ;
the noon train from Omaha , headed
for Boiipstcel , was reported as at
least an hour and a half late and the
afternoon westbound train , headed for
Long pine , was forced to wait for
that connection.
The M. & O. morning passenger ,
due out of Norfolk at fi:30 : , was un
able to start for several hours , owing
to snow blockades. The Union Pa
cific service was again struck , drifts
filling the cuts and stopping attempts
to run trains.
Snow Plows Hard at Work.
Snow plows are again hard at work
In this section of the country , having
been called Into service early this
morning. It was necessary for the
plows to open the lines before pas
senger trains , In many Instances ,
could make headway.
Ono good feature of the storm was
the fact that the mercury took a rlso
in Its capillary tuho and prevented
much of the suffering that man and
beast might have had to endure.
Reports that have thus far been re
ceived do not that there Is
great suffering among live stock , al
though later developments may , of
course , show that the storm was harden
on cattle. .A1
Thermometer's Big Range ,
The thermometer took a big jump
yesterday. After having registered
at twenty-nine degrees below zoi/ >
during the night , it ran up the scale
just fifty-nine degrees before sundown
last night. Then it dropped to three
