, Mr. Kufns Cook was in the city
this morning. He says it was real
cold in No. 5, in fact the coldest he

zero before daylight.
He tells of the sad fate of a brood
of chickens. They did not freeze

o'clock in the day time tbey were
fed and watered and about an hour
later they all died. The water, he
says, is supposed to hare frozen in
