The weather began to turn cold Thursday night and Friday morning early it began snowing rapidly, and we had a fearful snow storm all day. Friday night it turned very cold, the thermometer registered below zero, and it has varied from that point to 12 degrees below up to this writing, Monday.

The five days receding this has been genuine winter weather. The thermometer, Tuesday morning early, touched 22 degrees below zero, which was as cold as ever known here in the recollection of the oldest citizens.

Mr. Warren Barrett was up in the Fordsville country when the snow storm came on, and in coming home Saturday, he encountered snow breast deep to his horse.  A man that could face the music and ride such a day as last Saturday has the right grit for a good assessor.
