(By tho Ass<>cl.-)tf>< T'r.'5.'<) Kansas City Jan. 12. -Not for twcn- ty-ftTO years has the southwosi experienced such srviTc wlntnr conditions as yesterday and today. The 'tbermometer here rcKltttred twenty telow at eight o'clock tl;i.< morning. Although the blizzard, the worst since eighteen eighty-sigc abated today, the mercury over the entire district dropped to the lowest of the .season. It ycuM Ihlrty -rtve degrees below zero at Sioux City this morning. The Provident Association here announced that unless heavy contributions were received Inimcdiati;!y frcez Ing and starvation would result to hundreds here. The threatened famine in we.stern Kaasas. has assumed a mo^i serious aspect. Not since noon Thursday has a train pai^sod over t!ie Santa Fe or Rock Island between H;uchin.=on and Dodge City or Hutchinson and Liberal. Near Kingman on the Sanla Fe six locomotives are stalled In a cut. The crews deserted them and sought shel ter at the nearest homes, in some towns the railroads are dividing fuel with the citizens to prevent snfler- ing. . Twenty below zero here was the lowest January reading known to the local Weather Bureau. Readings ranged from six below at Oklahoma City to forty-two below at Huron, S. D. Dodge City was eighteen below. F\>rt Smith, Arkansas zero. The cold wave spread to the Texas coast where .Sunti.se today 7:38 a. m.; .">;23 p. m. sunset dr.ys altcmpting to arrange to buy f-'id fr^r tt'pir Ffock.

ThiK week'.s siorm re.'-oaihled a great deal the storm of January iss»i the worst Kansas ever knew. In 1S86 the storm lasted nearly two weeks and thousands of head of cattle •perished. With such a ^^orm at the present time the result wo\i'd be much worse than then. W;iile the s^toik- men of the we^'tcin part of the s;ae generally,attempt to raise or provide sufficient feed for stormy weather, they have almost exhausted their fall and winter supply, owing to the conditions of the last month. A slight thaw followed by a freeze and considerable more rnov.v ha.- made the ground in western Kansas a sheet of ice. on which the cattle have been wandering seeking fond. Feed staoks were attacked ar.d eaten. Jack rabbits which for three years have been an- ever-increasing scourge,- also attacked the stacks, in many places apipearlng by the thousands. Being the smallest and weakest of the prai- rife animals, the yare dying off of rie animals, they are d>-ing off of Logics Will Be Heavy. Reports, from the western part of the state are beginning to arrive telling of losses to stockmen. The number of cattl*" reported to have died Crom Btarration and exposure has been small thus far but is increasing daily. It-' is declare:! by the stockmen that only by train service that would allow them to ship feed In and weather con ditions that woald permit hauling the feed to the ranches, can heavy loss be prevented. Snch a bliza?^d as that which set in tp^y will start the cattle off across the prairies red it will be almost impossible to round them up. Unless the Btonn abates at once thousands of cattle all over the west will be frozen to death. TMs condition/already exists In Colorado, where the stockmen hare been shipping every bit ofi stock possible to market. The prfbc of feed has been r-cing up by leaps and bounds and there Is not much chance of the small s-cckmen pulling through the winter w'thout loss, no matter how favorable co^idltioas may become: A train load of western cattle arrived at Great Bend yesterday and the owners offered a ba 'f Interest In them to any one who wou?d feed them until sprine. tml there were no takers, as the cattle men there are saving their supply of feed for their own stock. The number of cattle being wlnterfed there this year i« larger than for several years. Stodmten are afraid to ouy eastern cattle at any price as they fear they will not be able to survive the winter.

That was the way the mercury went last night until it swept f:om the slate nearly all previous records for cold In this section of the country. Ye.?, it is true that old settlers, whose words are relialilc vouch for the fact that during one winter about thirteen years ago, the mercury fell to 25 degrees below zero But the difference in tlu rnioiue'ers is great, and besides souiPt !:;;rs wind and other conditions inado a cold yoom more noticeable, so that its se- is likely to !.e exaggerated Corpus Chrlstl was startled by a tem-i>«'ri'y is likely to !.e e above and* This n^nrn.Ing it w.is lt> degrees belov ^ero/" That was the mark r.~Kister"<i hy Tlie delicate and e -.-p .ct iiistrument at the I'ni'cd Htates Weather Bureau and that is the lowest tetiiperafure that particular instrument, wliich has berii in cpera'ion here seven years has ever recorded.

The snow which began falling yep- Terday ceased during the night, there being a total fall of about 1 inch, or .10 of an inch, melted. The mercury stood at zero or below- all day yesterday, and the prospects are that it will not get as high as zero today. At noon, although the sun ro.se in a clear sky and ha.s been shining all morning, the mercury registered K degrees below. Although the prediction is for rising temperature, there is no doubt thAt it will be very cold tonight, and that the :nercury j;:ay even set a new record Fuel Famine Threatened. The demaud for wood and coal for fuel In the past sever.il days, especially yesterday, has Leon such as bar been rarely kriow-n in lola. and it is certainly unprcredenteci, at least for for tl'c past thi:-;een or fourteen ;-ears. "ibe lola Ice, Cold Storage & Fuel Co:iipany received 120 orders foi coal yesterday, and every ounce was gone Lefore the day wa.^ over. Coal has been in great demand tod-ay, but every dealer is out. and there .seems to be no prospect of obtaining a new- supply before to:iiorrnw. Wood also is very scarce, the men v.ho can supply this fuel being few and far between. Tfie lola Ice. Cold Storage &1 Fuel Company yesterday go: in a car containing fifty tons of coal. It was not necessary to ha^l it to consumers. The car had hardly come to a Btsndstill. when wagons swarmed around It. and v:\ observer coun'ed sixteen wagons lined up beside the car at onie time waiting to b." filled. L. E. HorvlUe has employed ten men to cut wood in bis timber north of the city, and this gives hope that there will be a supply of wood on liand at the latest by tomorrow morning, and perhaps bv this evening.
