The weather of the past few days has
borne Sergeant Ray out in the opinion ex
pressed last . Friday, that we would prob
ably have a steady cold spell of several
days in duration, perhaps the longest of the
winter so far.
The first snow of the season fell yester
day morning about 1 o'clock. As it was
very light and a heavy wind blew nearly
all night, no evidences of it were seen in
the morning and very few people got a
glimpse of it.

In these days of anticipated holiday
pleasures and surprises the well-to-do peo
ple of the city will, of course, not forget all
about their less fortunate neighbors the

Christmas is just as apparent as it is to
them; in whose bosoms it excites the same
longings, but whose circumstances doom
them and theis to disappointment when
the natal day arrives.
The alarm of fire about 2:30 a'clock
yesterday morning was occasioned by the
burning of a quantity of cotton in the Wa
bash yards up town. An entire car load of
forty-three bales was enveloped in flames
and had to be run down the incline into
the river to extinguish it and prevent it
from communicating to other property
About half the cotton floating io the river
was picked up. A son of Mr. Hiram Hill
the diver, caught ten bales; men on the
Ella Kimbrough caught three or four, the
McComb picked up five or six and several
negroes picked up one tr two each
Another car load also caught fire from the
first, but the burning bales, seven in num
ber, were thrown off and the rest were
saved. The car that was run off the incline
is to be hoisted and repaired in tbe course
of the week.

A little fellow iu one of tbe primary
rooms of the public schools has experienced
the pangs of unrequited love within the
last few days. It seems he was deeply
enamored ot'an attractive little miss in the
same room with himself, and unlike some
older folks similarly conditioned, didn't
hesitate to let tbe object of his affection
know the statu of his feelings, as the follow
ing bold declaration written by bim vitb
evident care and sent to the little girl, will
testify : "is my boe and I love her. I'm
going to send her a Christmas letter. Your
self. Respectfully, Sweetheart, . Ans
'Oott ist die Lie be,' (God is Love), 1 John,
4,16." He had sigued his own name and
addressed the little girl by hers. But it
seems also that the recipient of the little
epistle didn't look with favor upon her
suitor and she cruelly denounced bim and
handed his note to the teacher. The poor
little fallow is now forcad to seek consola
tion in the thought that " 'tis better to have
loved and lost than never to haved loved at

Wm. M. Davidson has, among others,
placed furnaces for M. F. Gilbert and
Charles Pink, in their residences, thus doing
away with the coal and fire nuisance in each
room and keeping them of a uniform tem
perature throughout. We have noted their
work and feel surprised that so few of them
are in operation in the city, but as thny be
come better known other house-holders
will order.until every house with a basement
will, in time, be furnished with heat from
one of Davidson's furnaces, which means a
general saving of fuel, time and temper
and speaking of stoves, people, if they really
knew, would be astonished at the aggregate
amount of his business done in stoves and
ranges running away up in tbe thousands
during the year the largest retail business
done in the state by one man, outside of
Chicago. We have seen a number of bis
hard coal base-burners in operation, bcrh-
so coke. We refer to "The Century." It
does its work perfectly, giving entire satis
faction and proves itself a magnificent
stove, perfect in every feature essential to
success, and is by all odds the most desir
able of all low feed base burner stoves. In
addition to his immense stove business,
Davidson keeps a number of men employed
in manufacturing tin ware and doiug all
kinds of jib work in his line, roofing, gut
tering, etc., and is also agent for the Ham
ilton, (Ohio) Plow Works, and will, for the
benefit of farmers, keep at all times a full
assortment of these celebrated plows fcr
