Hov. W. H. SwnrU , wlio until recently 1ms
been In the cmp.loy of the Hnptlst Mlsslonnry

neighborhood of Parkston , Dak , , about ilvo
miles from which pluco hli family rosldo , Is
In the city the guust of brother-ln-liuv , Mr.
A. L. Frank , of 1314 South Thlrty-fourth
street. A HIH : reporter called upon the rev
erend gentleman lust evening to obtain from
ilm the particulars of n son's experience and
ho anxiety of Mrs. Sw.irtz during the terrl-
ilc blizzard which swept over the wcstou the
icinorablo January 1'J last. Mr. Sivurtz
VIIB away from homo at the time , but ho per-
iltted the reporter to copy the appended lot-
era from his wife and BOII narrating the clr-
Tlln MOTIIEIl'S I.r.TTKll.
My Dear Husband : You have doubtless
cnrncd cro this all about Arthur'B sad ex-
lerlenco in the terrible blizzard. Hut the
ads have not all been told. After lying
Ightecn hours in his little filed ho was so
ic urly fro/en that ho had to inuko a debper-
ite effort to get out of the sled and onto his
cct and when ho reached the house , which
ortunutely was near where ho lay , ho
alnted. The fun A' supposed ho was dying ,
mt they gave him some stimulants which
cvlvcd him and then kindly prepared him
omcthing warm to cat and drink , and during
ho duy ho seemed to recover , but after toil-
ng hard all day trying to save his team and
then losing them , as they wcro so badly
fnwn , ho was thrown Into n fever and
delirium. Ho raved plteously about his poor
lorses , did not know how wo could do with
out a team , but t'ortilnatoly wo were able to
secure a doctor who gave him an opiate and
ho went to sleep. Ho bucins quite well now ,
though weak. How grateful wo nro over his
ccovery. Oh , how near death's door ho was.
Jut how- shall I describe my own suffering.
t seems 1 have suffered moro than our poor
) oy. I am almost prostrate. When the
storm came up wo know ho must bo lost and
til afternoon and night as the wind howled
and the storm and cold intensified. The
icxt day your brother started in searcli of
lim but the cold was so intcnso and the dls-
nncc ho had to travel prevented his return
hat day. Oil I what weary hours. The
icxt day while watching out for him wo caw
ilm coming through the Holds alone without
Vrthur. without the team , and wo knew
bomething was wrong. Could it bo that our
> oy wus buried in the snow , cold in death !
Oh , the suspense the anxlte.v of those
noinents. I thought I could not live till ho
cached the house. And I could not speak ,
feared to open my lips or to hear him utter
i word , but the children , you know how eager
hey would bo and impatient. They gathered
t the door pale and agitated and as soon us
'unclo" was near enough , to bo Heard
riedout , "Did you lindhimf" "Yes. " "la
ho itlivoi" "Yes. " Oh , the burden that
oiled from my poor heart , and as wo learned
hat ho had escaped witli scarcely any injury
t all you cannot Imagine our Joy. Surely
vo have many reasons for congratulation
mil thanksgiving to God. I foil HO sorry to
ese my poor "Dollic , " but what is the loss of
i horse when our dear boy is preserved to
isf Your loving wife. MAY It. SWAHTZ.
Parkston , Dak.
My Dear Father : You wish to know where
was lost in the storm and what my thoughts
vcro when 1 found myself lost. As you
nivo heard I started for Parkston about 11
o'clock for some coal , and when about Jlvo
nilcs out I was overtaken by the storm and
n a few minutes the air grow so dark with
ho driving snow I could not see the horses
leads , and I was unubla to see the road , so I
Iroppcd the lines and let them drift with the
storm. In a little while they began lloundcr-
n the snow and stopped. I sup-
rased I had got into a ravine but on
ixuminatlon I found I was in a corn field in
Ivo to six feet of snow. I got back into the
sled again and tried to urge thorn through it ,
> ut in their plunging one of them throw his
'ront leg over the polo and neck yoke. Then
: know it was all up with me , so I unhitched
thorn and let them go. I then got into the
sled , wrapped the robe around my feet and
cgs , put the cmiltover my head and shoulders
and laid down in ttio box and thought "Well ,
jy God's help I have got this far. and by
God's help I will get through , " and in ten
minutes I suppose I was sound asleep. This
wus about 1 o'clock in the afternoon. About
dark I awoko. I raised up and looked out
mil the bliz/ard was just getting there , and
I said "Well , this is all right , for it may bo I
will get through it all right , and may bo I
won't , so good bye to all , and oh , Ijord , help
mo , " and I laid down again. I did not feel
afraid. I was not alarmed at all , and soon I
was aslccj ) again. About daylight I woke up.
I was all right. I thought the snow had
drilted over qjo and I did not feel
cold , though I found presently that I was
badly chilled and stiff , As I got out of the
sled and attempted to walk I fell over. I getup
up and tried again , but no go. My legs were
stiff and so numb I could not move them. I
began to pound them and rub them , and by
and by I got on my feet , and us I started I
caught sight of the top of a house only about
twenty-five rods away. I made for it , you
bet , and after stumbling over four or flvo
times I got to the door and woUo up the fam

The Union Pacific Ktenls ItH Way Up
tlio OnH-AVorks Alloy.
Yesterday morning at ( iM : : ) o'clock the
Union Pacltlo mnssca about sixty laborers at
the intersection of the alley between Jackson
and Lcavcnworth streets with Eleventh
street. The force was under the direction of
Hoadmuster Holbrook and immediately
stretched ties and rails al ng the -alley west
from the cast side of Eleventh street. Up to
the latter point the track had already been
laid and used for a couple of yours by the
Hlchardson Drug company and other heavj
shippers on that thoroughfare. A short dis
tance west of Eleventh street the workmen
encountered opposition They were orderci
by some of the gas company's employes to
lay no tracks in front of the property of the
corporation which lies on both sides of the
alley , on ono sldo being the generating works
and ono largo receiver and on the other
the big receiver , The tracklayers , however
paid no attention to the orders and continuci
at work putting down tics , extending rails
mid spiking them with rapidity. The gas
men then resorted to their hose and directed
it heavy stream of water UIMJII the railroui
men , but that also was without effect. As
soon as ono gang got thoroughly saturatei
with water and then frozen with a coating of
ice , another gang took its place. In this
manner the truck was extended past the
works and out of the reach of the hose , after
the men had boon subjected to the latter for
nearly forty minutes. About Stt : ! ) o'clock
the rails were hud in a very rough manner
up to the cast side of Thirteenth , and a line
of platform cars for nearly the
entire distance extended over them. Uoud
master Holbrook was like an Ice man whci
ho got through with his ducking , so much so
that it was with difficulty that he took oft his
coat , nnd when ho did it stood up as rljrk
and glossy as if it had been made of glass
Ho then dismissed his men to save them frou
colds. Besides the water , it is claimed tha
the gus employes threw several pieces of caa
at the trackmen , striking on. the bock a man
named Gorman , who resides on Thirteenth
street , near the scene.and , injuring him pain.
'ully Another mnn hnd hit.nnklc sprained
mil was taken to St. oJow.'ph's hospital ,
Vhcnco ho afterword left to go to Dr , Osil-
iralth , the ompany's .vurflcon , Mr. Hoi *
> rook , It Is claimed , wasstruck on the head
vitn a chunk of coal nnd bruited.
Holbrook's gang was succeeded at about 10
o'clock by a smaller force of men under Fore
man Carey , of the Bluffsrtvtm put the flnl h-
ng touches to the rough - > work of the morn-
ng. This over , Conductor Uussidy settled n
string of cars over the lluo ami the work was
over.A nr.n reporter called uxm | the superln-
cndcnt ut the gas works nnd learned from
ilm that the employes atiho works had acted
on their own authority , yet -what they had
lone was heartily In accord with the feelings
if the company. Ho considered the act an
llegnl one , and if ho hud been there ho
vould , perhaps , have acted even ' moro
letermlnedly than the men did yet. The
Union Pacific had no right In the alley and
mil their laying of track was wrong and
ihonld have been prevented by forco. Mr.
? rltchett , the attorney of the company , ho
said , hud been no tilled of the affair and had
said that the road in question hud no right of
way through the alley , and would in the
Horning take the steps necessary to oust it.
VIr. iiutton said the company was opposed to
he truck there bccuuso It closed the alloy up
to them. They could not unload there or
Irlvo team in or out without danger. He-
sides , it would Interfere with their
heir pipes as readily as required , and would
shut off connection with them nnd their
receiver when cars stood on
the track. Again , there wcro places
around their works near which they never
used a light , and they had Instructed their
iien never to go near them with n cntidlo.
nmp or match. These engines which would
un up nnd down there , would boa danger
o such places with their sparks , and might
MIUSP great loss of llfo and property. Mr.
Button , in conclusion , said that the company
uul no knowledge that the march was to bo
stolen by the Union Pacltlo until after the
work had been commenced. Ho said , how-
svcr , that a steal hud not been entirely over-
ookcd , because Injunction patters had been
undo out some time and all that remained to
bo inserted before making application to the
court was the time and pluco of the laying of
the track.

Ho Will Ho Courteous Hereafter.
A \Vashintftoii correspondent relates
the following : The story of the little
boy who picked up a pin in front of the
wealthy merchant ami was rowurdcil for
his industry by a Sl.liOOclorkship , is now
rather eclipsed by recent incident in
Postmaster General Dickinson's career.
It happened after ho had been appointed
by the president and before ho had boon
confirmed by the bonato , during which
period his status at the postotlico department -
partmont was rather doubtful. Ono nf-
tornoon , Into , ho was about to stop into
the side entrance when the zealous door-
kcopor interposed :
"Too late. "
"But , by man. I have important busi
ness iiibido. "
"Are you a member of congress ? "
"No. "
"Have you an order from a member'1" ;
"No. "
"Can't got get in , then ; too late. "
"Well , when can 1 get in ? " .
"Dunno. " *
"Who can toll - '
"Dunno. move on now. "
It was then that Mr. Dickinson re
tired and entered by another door. The
doorkeeper in the meantime pursued
the oven tenor of his ways , satisfied
thai ho hud done the right the right
thing nnd vindicated the authority of
the authority of the postmaster general'
Not long afterward lie wivs astonished ,
however , to receive an order to call on
the now postmaster general , who had
in the meantime boon confirmed by the
senate. His ahtonishmentsintiy bo hot
ter imagined than described when lie
confronted in Mr. Dickinson the fatrnn-
gor whom ho had treated so ungraci
ously. His now chief , though , proved
"I didn't rare anything for your dis
courtesy to mo , " ho said , "but it might
have hurt the feelings of a thiru-chujS
pobtma.stor. Answer questions after
this. That's what you're paid for. "
A boy at Philadelphia dropped the
rope of his ulcd into the slot of the cable
and waited developments. Pretty soon
the cable cought the rope and the small
boy wont whsz/.ing along the street. It
was great fun , until ho reached the
curve , and then the rope broke , mid the
sled and boy brought up against a lami > -
post , and the boy { .utTored At the
hospital the young doi'iors patched up
his nose , and rctUjcod 'his dislocated
wrist. "I had iv dandy ride , " ho said ,
"but I never t'ought of do curve.
