Mead- County. Bay and Miss Gray left this city in the height of the blizzard against the protests of friends and it is supposed their team g-ot away while they were looking for the road. The country is sparsely settled, and losing- their way in Saturday's storm meant death. Dr. Jones and wife, of Hill City, reported lost, arrived Monday afternoon. LINCOLN, Neb., Feb. 10. — Reports from the north- and western parts of the State indicate, that the storm of Saturday and Sunday was- much more severe than at first supposed. Stock has suffered severely, the loss of cattle and horses in transit being- unusually severe. All the railroad lines have been seriously hampered, the Burlington being probably ths most fortunate. Trains on the Union Pacific &. Elkhorn are all the way from four to twenty-four hours late. General Manager Holdrege of the Burling-fcon, who is snow-bound at Alliance, telegraphs that in that section the snow-storm was the most severe in history, compared to which' the memorable blizzard of January, 1SS8, is only a baby. SAX ANTONIO, Tex., Feb. 10.— The coldest blizzard in two years reached here Sunday night and before midnight the mercury had fallen forty-four degrees, with the wind blowing at the rate of tliirty miles an hour. Monday it was colder still and the velocity of the wind has not diminished.

How American Reciprocity Works—TJI the Commons Sir .Jnme» PerfjusdOn An- Lat6 "ounces That Britain Can Not Demand the Same night* In Trade as Have Boon Granted to the United States. Loxuox, Feb. 10.—Sir James Fergusson, of the Foreign Office, answering- a question in Parliament relating to the American reciprocity treaty with Brazil and as to whether Great Britain would have equal commercial advantages in Brazil with those bestowed by the treaty on the United States, replied that Great Britain had no commercial treaty with Brazil and could not, therefore, demand the same trading rights as those bestowed by the treaty on the United States, The reciprocity treaty between the United States and Brazil has aroused much uneasiness in trading circles here, especially as, by the Government's own admission,, there is no obligation on Brazil to accord similar favors to England. English merchants have well- established houses at Rio de Janeiro and other Brazilian cities, and the British trade with the Republic is very valuable. It is feared that much of this will be lost to England. The course of the Brazilian Government in favoring American trade is attributed to the hesitation shown in Europe to recognize the Republic, and to the fact that Dom Pedro, the exiled Emperor, is connected by the ties of kindred with the ruling houses of England and Germany, the last named country especially having put off recognition until recently.
