Pioneer Rode Steer to Town When Drifts Were Deep, And now the old timers a,re coming forth with their stories about the winters of long ago. Dr. J. E. SUnelmrl, 115 Adams avenue northwest, has an issue of the Globe-Gazette, dated Dec. 28, 1904, which relates how his father, W. B. Stinehart, rode a steer to town in order to get provisions. "The wonder is that people ever lived to tell the story, with such poor houses and .so many inconveniences as were the lot of the residents here in those days," wrote the enterprising reporter who worked on that story. "The houses were poor and the snow driven by a Ijigh wind sifted through each crack and crevice, a.nd there were many. It was no uncommon thing to awake in the morning and find a good layer of powdered snow over the coverlet of the bed. Fur Coals Not Invented. "Fur coats were not then invented and comfortable overshoes a tiling of the future," continued the writer. Mr. Stinehart, according to the article, encountered such a storm while pioneering in this county. The snow was many feet deep and piled in drifts to a- great height. The pro- visions fo? - the family were beginning to run short. He was unable to get his team from Ihc barn on account of the snow and no vehicle could have been drawn through the drifts on the roads. Whtn everything else failed, Mr. Stinehart mounted a gentle steer that he owned and thus reached the city. He purchased his rations and returned home via the same: power. "The steer ought to have been embalmed at death." continued the writer, "and his name and record given a place in the annals of county history. exposures Were Fnta.1. "Ma.ny exposures which terminated fatally were common incidents of those early days as the country was sparsely settled and landmarks few. These pioneers tell us that such storms used to last three days before wearing themselves out. During such times the Milwaukee road had a habit of getting no further than Mason City and sometimes did not get trains out of here for two weeks at a time." The Mason City Express of Dec, 8. 1870. ran the. following account of the winter of 1856-57. "The hard winter will long be remembered with a shudder and talked of sadly by all who battled it and endured its perils on the frontier. Blinding, freezing storms succeeded each other until snow lay to the depth of four feet on the level. Terrible accounts were heard from every settlement of deaths by freezing and this settlement too furnished its victims to the Icy king. Aleck Long was frozen to death only a few miles from here. The freezing of hands and feet were no uncommon occurrence and many bead of stock perished. The snow became so crusted that, man's foot could hardly walk over it but not a. horse or other hoof could be got out, only on roads cut for thorn. There was no other means of travel than snow shoes and hand sleds." Mrs. A. C. LaRue, 88, to Be Buried in Forest City FOREST CITY"--Word was received by Mrs. U. .1. Cantrall of the death of her mother, Mrs. A. C. LaRue. 88. at her home in Waterloo on the previous day. Mrs. LaRue will be buried in the Madison cemetery south of Forest City but the funeral date has not yet been determined because of the weather conditions. Nashua Public School to Be Closed Until Monday NASHUA--The Nashua public- schools were closed Tuesday afternoon to remain closed until Monday, owing to so many pupils being absent on account of the severe cold and blockade of the country · roads. The school has plenty of coal on hand to , continue operating for a while yet. , . SAYS VET FIGHT IS NOT FINISHED Van Zandt of V. F. W. States Other Demands Planned by Ex-Soldiers. WATERLOO--UP)--The veterans' fight for compensation is not over with the passing of the bonus bill, .Tames E. Van Zandt, Altoona, Pa., national commander of the veterans of foreign wars, said in an address here Tuesday night at Hotel Kussell- Lamson. He warned that veterans' organizations must present an united front to "combat the propaganda, and efforts of such groups as the American Liberty league, National Economy loagisc and American Manufacturers association lo take away the benefits we have won." He said efforts are being made to procure an injunction to prevent payment of the bonus. Van Zandt declared he favors passage of a. bill which would withhold hospitalization and other benefits from veterans who do not. belong to'/.ecl veteran groups. Included in the platform of the National V. F. W. organization as he outlined it arc a. pension system for veterans and their dependent parents, widows and orphans, and a constitutional amendment giving the United States a permanent neutrality policy.
