You Should See Some* Season Books--That One of 1912. Old timers of Iowa who talk or have talked of the great blizzards of such and such a year have usually had the edge on those of the present day because there was no record with which to dispute with them. But A. R. Sale, treasurer of the Iowa Hardware Mutual Insurance company, who was a teacher in the Mason City high school way back in 1878, has the facts with which to substantiate his stand that "there have been colder winters." While light snow was falling over the week-end Mr. Sale glanced over his "Season Books," as he termed them, at his home at 320 Pennsylvania avenue southeast and decided the outstanding weather he could offer was the "great coid wave of 1912." "Boreas on the Loose." "These old records have been jotted down in our 'Season Book' and scientific meteorological said Mr. Sale, "since we are not records," paid more attention to garden work than the weather. The records show, however, what old Boreas can do when he's on the loose in northern Iowa." But for the cold wave of 1912-the trouble started on Dec. 31, 1911. According to the book it had been "snowing hard for two days. On the morning of Jan. 1, 1912, the thermometer read 20 degrees below zero; the following day it was 15 degrees below zero, and then 7 degrees below zero. On Jan. 4 the temperature went down to 22 degrees below zero and the next day to 28 degrees below zero. High Winds Reported. Throughout'this period there were high winds and according to a notation from the Globe-Gazette, it was 12 below zero at midnight on Jan. 4 and 10 degrees below zero at 7 o'clock in the morning and remained at 8 below at noon. 5rand Forks reported 38 degrees below zero and Charles City 14 degrees below. Going back to the record again, the cold wave took another dive on Jan. 6 and the temperature reading was 24 degrees below zero. The Globe-Gazette recorded 26 degrees below zero at midnight this day and 21 degrees below zero at 6 o'clock in the morning. It was 15 degrees below zero at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. Waterloo also reported 23 degrees below zero. Then on Jan. 7, the thermometer slid down to 31 degrees below zero. On Jan. 8 the Globe-Gazette recorded 30 degrees below. Down to 85 Below. Then the weather was not so bad for a "spell." On Jan. 9 it was 10 degrees below zero; Jan. 10, 19 degrees beloxv zero; Jan. 11. 25 de- mistaken, for on Jan. 19 the temperature was again 20 below zero. However, from Jan. 20 to Feb. 2 there was a warmer period. Then on Feb. 2 the record was 15 degrees below zero; Feb. 3, 20 degrees below; Feb. 4, a blizzard, with the temperature at zero, and then for three days straight, the temperature was 15 degrees below zero. "Good Sleighing." "Good sleighing since Nov. 15, was recorded in the entry for Marc 3. "There is from two to three fee of snow on the ground." On Marc 15' another "heavy snow" was re corded and "Still fine sleighing." O March 20 there was an entry-"Heavy snow all day." Then o March 22 the thermometer read 3 degrees below zero, and accordinj to a notation, "the Globe-Gazetti agreed on this reading." Mr. Sale put up his record against the 1936 'speil" and be- ieves the modern weather man wiL have to hunt some to find a bit o] weather that the old-time recorc can't match. Of course he is allowing one advantage, no one has mentioned much about "good sleighing this winter." Swea City Sells Coal in Lots of 100 Pounds SWEA CITY--Henry Myhr of the Northern Lumber company truckec two carloads of coal over from Estherville on account of snow blocked roads over the Rock Island. The coal was doled out in 100 pound lots to those who were out of coal. Al coal in the town has been divided among those in need. The coal was sacked in 100 pound lots, taken to the homes and placed as near thi houses as snow banks would per mit. The Fanners' Elevator com pany is expecting a load of coal and this will have to be trucked from Estherville. Farmers are snow bound, and many burning corn. Th Swea City school is closed indefinite ly until the coal situation is clearer up. No public gatherings and nc church services are held. Ledyard School Closed Second Week Straight LEDYARD--The Ledyard con solidated school has been closed last week and continued closed this week on account of the roads. was 35 degrees below zero. This was followed by high winds on Jan. 13 and a temperature reading of 10. degrees below zero for two days straight. Then on Jan. 15, it dropped to 25 degrees below zero and" rose again to 10 degrees below on another high wind. On Jan. 17, the record book states, "the cold wave ends."
