1871 - Snapped Like Threads

News
The Bangor (Me.) Whig reports that, owing to the intense cold, the wires of the Western Union Telegraph line, between that city and Lewiston, were recently broken in nearly fifty places. The wires were put up during the hot weather, last summer, and contracting with the cold, snapped like threads.
