THE BIIZZAED ’ S BEASTS. MANY LIVES SACRIFICED TO THE COLD WAVE IN THE WEST. Some \Who Escaped with Their Lives Must Submit, to Amputation — The Hu ­ man Statue Found Near Sioux Falls. Forty-tiro Degrees' Below Zero. S t . P aul . Minn., Jan./ 16. — The telegraph hourly brings the most pitiful stories of suf ­ fering, terrible struggles for life, and heroic deeds by brave men and women of the storm stricken sections that have never been equaled. At Huron, Robert Chambers sacrificed his life for his boy. Ho and his two sons, 9 and 11 years old, started to water the cattle a mile from the house. When the father saw the storm approaching he sent the elder lad, who was la me. back to the house. Mr. Chambers and Johniw undertook to drive the cattle home. Johnny, . noli SO tells whs father s- place in i ,up the best he could, or extra clothing. «• .ey were soon bewildered and lost, •no lived through the storm and is diy frozen as at first represented, followed. He says that when, his i that they were lost he made a b snow for him and wrapped him They had no overcoats mry says that he was so covered up that he was warm. ' Isis father went out mid called and called, and their St. Bernard dog barked, but no answer came. Then the father and dog get into the snow beside him. While he was warm, ho knew that his father was get ­ ting very cold. He urged his father to go on and find the trees, and then he could make the house, but the father said: ; 'lNfo; I ca nnot go and leave you here.\ The boy urged, but the father would do no more than go out and call for aid within a certain distance of the boy ’ s bed of snow. The dog also kept with the boy. Through the long night they had conversa ­ tions about perishing, but the father kept- assuring the boy that they would get through all light if he would only be sure and lie still. The boy knew his father was freezing, but was quite comfortable, and finally fell asleep. His father stood in the terrible storm, and called for help until he was exhausted. He then crept to the side of his boy, and sheltered him with his body. When Johnny awoke it was almost morn ­ ing. His father was still alive, and discover ­ ing that Johnny was awake, the father said to him: “ How, Johnny, you pray and I will pray, and then I know God will take you through all right. ” They prayed, as proposed, and soon after his father was dead. The boy was entirely covered up, except a little breath ­ ing place through the snow, and he laid still. The dog stood sentry and afforded the dew by which the bodies were found soon after daylight by a searching party. Johnny thinks his father had not been dead more than an hour when they were found. The boy ’ s hands and feet are only slightly frozen. A Hewfoundland dog came into Minot Saturday and attracted attention by his howls. A party followed him two miles into the country, where his master, named Davis, and his son were found, both frozen to death. The dog had pawed the snow away and had tried to drag them out. Many of the persons found dead showed plainly that they had died from suffocation. Some had torn their cloth ­ ing away from their throats and others had thrown away their head covering and were clutching at then- throats as though strug ­ gling for breath. During a genuine blizzard the ah- is filled with fine ice dust driven with terrific force, which chokes Che unfortunate victim in a shore time if he attempts to stand THE EMPIRE STATE.
