BLASTS FROM BOREAS
With Heaps of Snow Take Possession of the
SCENES OF THE GREAT STORM.

Oltl settlers h.ivo for yuan back boon
ivout to lnduljo In lurid descriptions of
tlio weather tn Omaliaof thcearlier days ,
its rain and lic.it , and dust and mud ami
bli//anh. Contrasting It with that of
the o latter days , they have not failed to
make their comparison favorable to the
present , and enumerate the advantages
that wo , of these degenerate days ,
enjoy in I lie blnndncis of the
Mill' * ) smiles and the mildness
with wliieh the blastof winter assail our
woll-clatl frames. Hut if any of the old sot-
tleis were out Toe day night , andforlhoir
own sake it is to ho hoped they were not ,
they might easily have di eovcred that
the rigors of the past hail not boon swal
lowed in tin ) whirlpool ot oblivion.
The snow continued to fall with unre
mitting assiduity , until cloven o'clork.
Half u do/.on hours before that , the streets
hud become almost impassible to vehic
les. The street railway tracks
refuiod to uncover beneath the
snow-plow. People who never ride
in the cars thronged them to suffocation ,
and , as if in resentment , in a number of
instuncc t tin * cars or hordes refused to
afford them the ride they sought. At 0
o'clock eight cars , more or Jess , under
the inlluencc of the weather , could have
been seen at the corner of Farnam and
Fifteenth streets , and they got nway Irom
there only by means of unloading and
the junction of efforts on the niirt of both
men ilml boasts. A little later eleven
cars wore cuutilit on the track common to
both the Eighteenth and Twentieth street
lines and reined from duty for
the night. Soon after , all the lines were
abandoned and night settled down nixm
n city at the mercy of snow , wind and
piercing blasts from the north. Stores
were closed , streets were deserted , the
only places remaining open being the
saloons , theatres and Jones' revival , and
these did but a frigid business. When
tlio snow hail ceased falling , the wind
from the north came down with a ve
locity of forty miles , and fash
ioned the snow in drifts upon
the street in shapes humorous , fantastic
and mournful. In some parts
the thoroughfares seemed like sections of
a national cemetery with thousands of
mounds above patriotic souls , covered
with the mantle of purity and silence. .
From the roof of every building count
less billions of particles wore blown into
the streets , filling them to the ridge of tlio
highest structure with a mist , in which
even the electric light lost its brilliancy
and appeared at a distance like a , Jisher-
man's din on a foggy morning. The
wind whistled nnd howled according to
its desires , and held undisputed sway
throughout tlio weary hours.
rAbout'lJo'cloolc yesterday morning it
broke in fragments one of the immense
plate glass windows of Gibson , Miller &
Richardson's book store in the granite
block on Fifteenth street , and the damage
was not repaired until 11 o'clock , when
sections of Sr.e'umw marble were substitu *
ted to cover the aperture.
No horse cars ventured on the tracks ,
nnd those whose business required their
early presence in town were compelled
to foot it through drifts of varying
heights and width. along tor
tuous sheep walks to town. Hun
! dreds of people were behind their
usual time at business. Dray , express
and truck men remained at homo. Mer
cantile houses opened their doors , merely
for form's sake , with no expectation of
doing business. The sun peered through
an impenetrable veil , like a disgruntled
monarch , and at intervals was reviled
by the hoarse voice and chilling breov.es
of the noilh which lie was able neither to
temper nor control. Hut few sleighs ap
peared and they were out on business and
not for pleasure. Pedestrians hurried
along with down-bent Heads , and the
weather joker when met had something
to say about the pleasant nature of day.
There was no change m the tempera
ture up to U o'clock , and then it scorned
as if the extreme cold promised were
ubout to add to the intensity of the visi

morning the mercury was at a point 12-

dilforait points show that there is a gen
eral depression all over this section of
the northwest. The contra of depression
is at DUH Moincs , causing a storm centre
of considerable energy.
High winds prevailed throughout the
city during the day. At 11 o'clock the
wind hail attained a velocity of thirty-faix
miles an hour.
The depots presented a cheerless ap
pearance. Hut few men could bo found
nround them and the activity of moving
trains and switching cur.s seemed to have
been relegated to the past.
In the Union Pacillc , the passenger
tracks wore covered with snow , while the
other rails were occupied with long lines
of diniry box cars shrouded in festoons
of Icicles. No trams were sent out. Pas-

an emigrant and n day coach , a box car
and three cabooses. These contained i\
number of laborers , tools and
food , all to bo used in
the work of clearing the roads.
While the trains already mentioned are
nt stations at which a supply of food and
other necessaries can be had for the pas
sengers , this morning the Union Pacific
sent to the depot six Immense chests of
crackers , meat and canned goods , which
will be sent on the llrst trains which leave ,
to provide against any want of food
which may bo experienced by its pat
rons before the storm shall have abated.

How It Will Soqti Ho Avoided on Sun-
dny Uy n Now Delivery.
The recent visit of the postofllco inspector
specter to the postolllco at this place , to
gether with the additions to the force of
the ofllco recently made , will bring about
a number of changes in the carriers'de
On Sunday the custom is , and has been
for many years , for people desiring mail
to mass in the north end of the building
and seek for their favors from their car
rier inside. For a long time back , as
everybody will appreciate who has ex
perienced it , this has resulted in a crowd
ing , a pushing and a pulling which stops
but little short of the disgraceful. It is
intended to obviate this by dividing the
people into two lines , one composed of
those who live in the residence nnd the
other of those who come from the busi
ness district. Kucli individual In turn
will approach one of the windows to bo
designated for that purpose , lie will an
nounce his mime to a party stationed at
the window , who will in turn shout it to
the carrier who will stand at his desk.
The applicant will then step aside to an
adjoining open window , and will there
receive his mail by means of an assist
ant who will bo given it by the carrier at
his desk. The same method will bo car
ried out with respect to those who live in
the residence districts Thirteen car
riers will attend to the latter and cloven
to the former. To effect this change the
rack now immediately in front of the
Sunday delivery will be removed and the
carrier's desks brought nearer the win
dows. Whether the system will work as
rapidly as did the old one remains to bo
Been. There can bo no doubt , however ,
that it will obviatp the disgraceful
crushing and crowding which has been
long borne with patience.

Nothing more was secn'of him until yes
terday morning about 3 o'clock , when his
body , fro/con still' and stark , was discov
ered by a sentry , about one hundred and
lifty feet from the guard house. It was
partially covered with drifted snow , and
lay in such a manner as to indicate that
Devlin was on his way to the guard
house when ho stumbled and felt. He
was probably too much under the influ
ence of liiiuor to icali/.c his danger , and
laid in the snow until fro/.cn to death.
The case was reported to the coroner ,
who does not deem an inquest necessary.

Theodore Tttton nnd AVifc.
It is now nearly a score of years , says
the Philadelphia Times , since .a comely ,
graceful woman stood between the lace
curtains that shaded the window of a
lovely homo in Hrooklyn watching a
slender , dark-haired man , who turned to
wave his hand before passing out of sight.
There was a smile on both faces as the
hurrying feet of the pedestrian carried
him around a corner and the woman
leaned out of the window to watch his
Vanishing form. Two children played
about her feet , and , so far as the ordinary
eye could sec , the house itself was the
abode of domestic contentment , if not
love. The dark-haired man vas Theo
dore Tilton , and the woman , it is need
less to add , was his wife ; but what homo
has undergone a sadder and greater
change in the same relentless time * After
roaming from place to place the restless
Tilton has settled down in Pans , where it
is announced that ho means to stay. In
a lonely chamber of the Protestant con
vent at Newark Mrs. Tilton sits and sews
from day to day , the cray light of No
vember falling upon iior furrowed face
and lending an ashen color to her always
pallid cheeks. Of the little girls that
played at her feet that September morn
ing in Hrooklyn , one , Florence , is living
a student's life in Switzerland , and tlio
other has found a home among friends
in Chicago. They say that Tilton [ ex
pects to marry again , but tlio rumor is
only a rumor. It is quite toojlatc for him
to retrieve his former errors , whatever
they were , and ho best serves himself by
his dignified silence. For the other par
ties to the great controversy perhaps the
same can also bo charitably said. All the
elements of a tr.tgcdy are contained in
the aifair , excepting the necessary death ,
and that is more than equaled bv the un
