-Wo protest. Tho snow is not beauti
ful. In tho climate of Southern Illinois it
is a nuisance. It is as dreary as rain, and
it comes only to gather filth. It fills men
with gloom and boys with devils. It picks
up soot and mud and passes into tho house,
where it makes more trouble. It might bo
cleared from all roadways and sidewalks,
but no city government undertakes the
work, and Individuals aro too trifling, too
nisy or poor to remove If. A few persons

-The days of the world-famous show
man, P. T. Baruitni, are drawing rapidly
to an cud. For some time he has been
byng ill at tho homo of his son-in-law in
New York, and quite recently his com
plaint has assumed a dangerous form.
He has issued the follow ing appeal to the
clergy and congregations of Bridgeport,
Ct., his home: "In a spirit of linn reliance
on the Omnipotent nrtn of Him who doeth
all things well, I hereby request the prayers
of all tho congregations of Bridgeport for
His blessing to rest upon me, with thanks
giving for all tho mercies which I have
hitherto so abundantly received at His
hands." Mr. Barnuni was born in Bethel,
Ct., in 1810, and is, consequently, about
seventy years of ago. .
What a foolish paragraph a man may
write when he is angry I Here is something
from an angry man of the New York
Commercial Advertiser.: "A northern
copperhead is more malignant, and treas
ures up bis hato to the men who saved the
Union much more than the meanest ami
most disloyal confederate. This fact was
demonstrated the other day when Gen.
Grant made his appearance at tho capitol
in Washington. These snakes will con
tinue to hiss treason until they are boxed
up and chucked into a hole. There is
some hope of reconstructing a rebel, but a
northern copperhead, particularly of the
New England breed, is tho most malig
nant of all vipers."
