lining for it provided work for thou
sands of unemployed.
Storm Comes Without Warning.
The storm swept up from the south
west, heralded by a gale of great fury.
Then came the snow, preceded by a
blast of small hail. There had been no
warning of the storm, which struck
Chicago shortly after midnight and in
creased in intensity as morning ap

inch of snow over everything- and the

later the snowfall had increased to
two and one-half Inches and was turn
ing to rain.
The fury of the storm was most visi
ble on Lake Michigan, which had been
whipped into a violent rage. Roaring
seas swept over the breakwaters and
choked the mouth of the river. Lake
mariners said it was tho worst storm
of tho season.
Steamers Torn Back.
The steamer Alabama, of the Good
rich, line, reported a desperate battle
with tho elements the entire trip. The
steamer Kansas started out, but was
brought back. The steamer Racine also
managed to ride out into the lake, but
was glad to run back to shelter.
The present storm Is unique In many
respects, aside from its unusual sever
ity. It started its wild career in the
northwest and swept into the southeast
as far as Kansas. Then it veered
north and struck the lake region just
when a few days of mild weather had
begun to bring visions of green grass
and budding trees. .Seed catalogues and
