We ofter bear of winter lingering in \ho lap of spring, but this time spring has jumped into tue lap of winter. The comical effort of Governor Hill bis great character of championing the cause of ballot reform is such tbat oven Nature wears a broad grin. Mk. Stakley not long ago received tbe freedom of tbe city of London, but not the golden casket in which, tbe parchment is contained. That will be presented to him on his return this month. Piiince Kauaxa>*akOa, of the Hawaiian royal family, is traveling in Europe. He is accompanied by Prince Kechiou. If these two people don't catch a royal influenza, it will not be tbe fault of their names. Tue danger of an ice famine in Boston is again announced. If the woist comes to worst, however, the "Hub" may be able to obtain a tolerable substitute by cutting up into blocks of convenient size some of its frozen culture. Mauriage is honorable in all, and it is au estate which should bo entered into in a thoughtful manner amidst solemn surroundings. "Whatever tends to cheapen and degrade this service helps to undermine the foundations of the home and to destroy the state. The one convincing argument in favor of industrial education is that, whereas four-fifths of the inmates of American prisons are able to read and write, more than eighty per cent, of our criminal population were never taught the use of tools and have no trade. Di'Risru the three weeks the School's Savings Bank System has been in operation in the town of Pottstown, the plan has worked admirably. The deposits were $407.29 during t!ie first week; and 1339.&1 during the second week, $350.51 during the third, making a total of$l,lu5.-88, which is an excellent beginning. Mrs. Potter, who has gone off to-Australia with Kirle Bellew, informs the public that she will not return to the United States uuttl her grateful countrymen sympathize with her in her efforts to "purify" the stage. She also announces that she has no true friend left in the world except the devoted Bellew. CDT LOOSE FROM POLITICS The Women's Christian Temperance! Union Forms a New Organization. A SLAP AT THE PROHIBITIONISTS In explanation of the present phenomenally warm weather General Greely says it "is the result of abnormal paths, followed by low area storms daring the past six weeks." He utterly denies that the June breezes that now blow along the backbone of January are due to any changes in the Gulf Stream. Of course, this makes the situation as clear as mud. "Hope springs eternal in the human breast," hence the icemen and the liverymen continue to look forward with anticipation that February at least will bring winter in its train. And tbe Baltimore American whispers iu their ear the soothing, if not always accurate declaration that "February is, however, the real winter month of the year." Of course, it is not agreeable to the holders of railroad securities to be deprived of the income which they have a right to expect from their investments, but at the same time it is unquestionably sounder policy on the part of the management to refuse to pay such interest than to borrow money to do it witk. The latter course would lead to continuous troubles in the future and thus permanently impair the value of their securities.

It charged that the operations of politicians were dearly seen behind it. It furnishes no figures, but wbb simply an argument in favor of schism that had occurred and for the continuing of the work upon the original lines on which the W. C. T. U. was founded - In conclusion Miss Shepard appended a number oi "Don't's." "The first," she said, has two sides to it. First, don't give up the W. C. T. U, name. It is ours, we have a right to it, for ours is the original position of the W. 0. T. U., and with designating prefix or affix it will every time aod everywhere declare our reasons for organization.*1 OTHER 'DON'T's." The other "don'ts" were against tbe increase of the local dues beyond 65 cents, and the introduction of Woman Suffrage into the work.

Recognizing tho increasing popularity of the Limited among the business and profesbional men of tbe country, the Penn sylvania Railroad Company has decided to still further improve tbe facilities of this wonderful train, and add to its conveniences by introducing a stenographer and typewriter for the servico of the passen-gers.

From the Erie Herald. Just across the line between Centre and Clearfield Counties, and located in the farmer, is probably the most remarkable prehistoric fortification in the United States. It is seven or eight miles eastward from Houtzdale, and is located near the bead waters of tho Moshannon, and burrows into the mountain side. A growth of timber indicates its antiquity. It is a semi-circular wall, possibly 800 feet in diameter, about eight feet high aud built of stoue, evideutly transported from a ledge 15 mileB distant. The outer surface is covered with a curious cement of a composition unknown to local chemists. The masonry is of a most artistio order, and ndicatcs an architecture belonging to some race and period wholly unknown to tho present generation. Commencing near the ruined wall and running southward is a series of stoue pillars, evidently used as altars in somo forgotten age. They number some six or eight in all, and despite the work of vandals, are yet distinctly marked, some of them being from six to eight feet high. They are small stone pyramids, facing every possible approach to the ruins, and were evidently intended as defensive ramparts, behind which tbe builders might find shelter and protection.

It was a Bellefonte young lady who made and sold candy for her Christmas remembrances for her friends; another young lady has, by her fresh and artistio taste, sold pictutes for a handsome sum, sending them to the Woman's Exchange in Philadelphia, where they meet with ready sale Tho ways for girls to iimke money are multiplying in these days and it is gratifying to see how independent and helpful a good honest girl may become. They make first class lecturers, editors, clerks, cashiers, lawyers, teachers, tailors, s;>no-grapbers, architects, etc. TERSELY TOLD TALES. All the Latest Local Events Up to 2:30 P. M.

A great deal of debate ensued, the New York delegation favoring a special committee and tho Chicago adherents advocating the reference of tbe matter to the foreign affairs committee. Finally Mr. Cannon withdrew the first section of his substitute to which the most objection had been made, and it passed by a vote of 137 yeas to 131 nays.

The Vassar girl have tho grip, but they don't fancy it as much as they would if it emanated from a ooat sleeve with a masculine arm in it. The grip is called schaffkrankheit in Germany, and yet the disease does not seem to be more fatal in that country than in any other. The grip may have its mission, too. It will teach a suffering public tbe danger in adopting total prohibition and depending on drugstore whiskey.
