Drifting Isew and Bitter Cold Trial

by John A- Keating, president of the
Lumbermen Trust Company, from his
mother. Mrs. M. A. Keating, who lives
In Muskegon, Mich.
"This Winter, with Its drifting snows
and Arctic cold. Is a trial on endurance
of physical strength and the palpita

"Again we are In the throes of a blis
sard. the drifts are at an unbelievable
height and the mercury Is at sero. The
wind howl around our house, while
the paths that were shoveled a half an
hour ago are again filled. The streets
are deserted and all traffic has ceased.
No trains, either steam or electric, are
operating, and I am sure the streetcars
are not running. No autos are able to
push through the snows and a few
horses are trying In a laborious way
to draw a limited amount of coal to
those who are without fuel. Our sup

demands upon it. and I trust the situa

there was one street In Shelby that

high, and that -?as before this blizxard

"The snow in places la four .r five
feet higher than the rail of the piaxxa:
now fancy what that Is from the ground

embankments, which In places reach
half way up the windows, while the
white stretches out unobstructed until
we catch a glimpse of the top of the

white with the fast-falling flukes, like
a delicate veil between heaven and
earth. It Is most beautiful, so beauti
