This is the season of the year

of the coM weather makes
heavier fires necessary, with the
result that if the flue becomes

spreads and there is heavy loss
even before the arrival of the

against anything of the sort.

was standing by, with awful
look and blood in his eye. The
subscriber meant the writer to
thrash, his optics to bruise, his
nose to mash. He would wipe
the earth with the editor bold,
for telling facts he shouldn't
have told. The battle was brief,
the carnage great, and the sub
scriber found out his mistake.

been made by the children, and
the work being done is of a very
progressive and high order.

A Pretty Art Calendar.

is lithographed in 14 exquisite j
colors and gold. The title is
"The Mother and Child." Merei
words cannot begin to do justice
to the remarkable beauty of this
charming work of art. It must;
be seen to be appreciated. By!

In previous inaugurations the
President has stood in the cold
! hours, constantly bowinr
and taking off his hat to the
enthusiasts who saluted him as
they passed in the parade. This
year it is planned to inclose a
portion of the stand erected in
front of the White House, for
the President and his family,
with glass, and heat it by elec
tricity. Although March fourth has
usually been stormy and cold,
and though many prominent
men have been made ill, and
not a few have died as the re
sult of exposure at inaugura
tions, yet Congress has done
nothing to provide for holding
the inaugurations later in the
spring when the weather h usu
ally mild and balmy.
