Everybody has had a fine time to pro
vide their year's stock of wood. Most
f'areaers have to haul it some distance, as
the woodland and prairie usually lays in
h.rge tracts, so that if a man happens to
select a piece of land in the midst of a
prairie, he finds himself perhaps miles
from any timber. In selecting land for
a farm, people usually enter a tract of
both prairie arid woodland. Owing to
oil, st-; by step, until the whole olV,.. crew, that they had had enough of
such sport.

head ached and face burned by the hot
and heavy atmosphere. I buried my
face in my hands and sat for sosae time,

wood lis been in great demand, though
the price has not been very high, being
only about three, dollars per cord here.
The cold weather, however, is about over
with us now. The last week has been
tine and warm, and the snow has nearly
all disappeared from the streets.
Carpenters and joiners are resuming
th ir labors where they left oil at the
commencement of the cold weather, and
capitalists are projecting the erection cf
other buildings. I have seen several
loads of household furniture passing thro'
the streets within a few days, on their
way to the scene of next season's labors,
it is the general impression here that the
winter is over, and that Spring, with its
sunny days and Lope-inspiring breezes is
hist approaching.
Though the winter has been cold and
severe, it has not been near as disagree
able as it usually is in Vermont. We
have bad no high winds, driving the snow
ir.ther and thither, and piling it mountain
high on every side, but most days have
been pleasant and sunny. If the mor
ning happened to be cloudy, the clouds
ivoeld usually disappear before noon, and
the sun would come out in beauty and
splendor. We have fine weather here.
But I must say the mud when there is
m:rl is just the meanest kind of mud,
sticking so tight that it seems almost im
possible to remove it. I am told, how
ever, thai it does not usually last long.
