1907 - FOUR FROZEN TO DEATH IN BLIZZARD IN EAST.

News
Bathurst, N. B,, March 23. - Word was received here yesterday of the loss of four lives in the severe blizzard which swept over the eastern provinces Wednesday night. Mrs. John Comeau and three of her children were frozen to death at St. Simon, a small inland village.

The wind, which reached a velocity of sixty-five miles an hour, carried off the roof of the Comeau dwelling. Comeau took one child to the nearest house, a quarter of a mile distant, but in attempting to return for the others, lost his way in the storm. When he reached home he found his
wife and three children frozen to death.
