There is a weli in Chester county with twenty-two ieet of wator iu it. Well well. Kepohts say, the little King of Spain is out of danger. The King of Spain is never out of danger. It is said that Mrs. W hi tela w Keid wears the finest diamonds in Paris, and her husband never was a hotel clerk. New York is agitating better highways. If officials will put the roads in good order, the politicians will see that the fences are in good order. Tue notorious Callaghan has Gually succeeded in his efforts to secure tho arrest of Mr. Powderly, though it is likely to do bim little good. The railroads are great gainers from the mild weather in reduced expenses of limning trains. Tnere has been no extraordinary expenses from cold weather, and the savings will aggregate a large profit. It is ostimated that the applications for license in Philadelphia this year, will show a falling off of twenty-five per cent, as compared with last year, and yet there are those who declare high license to be a failure. The rumor that Mary Anderson was abandoning the glamour of the footlights for the bliss of married life receives strong confirmation in Mr. Navarro cabling his congratulations to bis son on the engage-ment.

DeVoe, the New Jersey weather prog-uoattcator, is again at it. Itu eays the present mildness is caused by warm equatorial currents. Owiug to the shifting of storm belts, the'rain in this section will be turned to snow this month. We shall have three cold waves yet. The ice men can cut by February 1. The last cold wave will be hero February 17. There will be a snow storm in March, followed by an early spring. As tho weather seems to be determined to bo contrary to what DeVoo would have it there would seem to be a very slight chance for snow or ice this season. The Shoemakers' Lockout Knded. Haveuiiii.i,, Mass., Jan. 20.-Three thousand shoemakers, who bavo been locked of for a week, returned to work today, and the difficulties have boon settled, to the entire satisfaction of both employers and employes. Tho manufactures have plenty of work, aud find it difficult to find enough help to turn out goodH fast enough to fill orders. Wanted to Feel Secure. Wooer-Oh, Miss-oh, Laviuia! May I not still hope?

The snow blockade on the Central Pacific road is at Emigrant Gap, near tho summit of tho Sierras. Last night eight west-bouud traius wero snowed in, and the prospect of the road being opeuod in the next forty-eight hours is poor, as tho snow-plows canuot work through tho freezing ice, and tho force of shovelcrs is inadequate. There are 1,~>00 men at work, but as ihe snow is seven fuel deep oa tho level, and fathomless iu the cuts, thu w.nk of clearing the track while the snow hills is a tremendous labor. * On the Northern Pacific there is a complete snow blockade at i?issons, near-Mount Shasta. Colonel Fred Crocker, of the Southern Pacific, who was going north, has been snowed in there for three days in special train, aud hopes to get out tomorrow. THK l'HOSPE*:T sot e.s L'OUUAGIMl. The Southern Pacific road has been badly injured in the Tehachopi mouutaius by washouts, and beyond Los Angeles the Hoods have done much damage. The only unobstructed road now is the Atlantic and Pacific, but as this depends on the Southern Pacific connections between the Mohave Desert and San Francisco, ;u:d uu the washed out Southern I'aciiio line between Los Angeles and San Francisco, iruvei on that may also bo delayed at any nwment, as it has been raining very heavily iu Southern California for d�iys pav, while it is snowing in tho north. The Western L'uhm advices this morning are that snow is still falling throughout the west, so that the prospect is by no means encouraging. A ni.l/.ZAUD UAiilXi;. Advices from St. Paul siys: A heavy Btorm accompanied by a gale, set in about 10 i/eluck last night, and a regular bl;z xtvd is now raging through tho northwest. As yet there has been no iuteirup tiou of railroad traffic or telegraphic communication,* but the storm is veiy severe. lietween live aud six iuches of huow have fallen on tho level, aud the prevailing high winds have drifted it badly, especially in tho southwestern portion of tho State.

Itmly of a t'ei-Hon Who Died f^M Hundred Yeiira Itefore the ChiKtian Krit. From the London Time*. A large aud distinguished company assembled in the botanical theatre of the L'nivorsity College on December 18, to w.tness t'10 unrolling of a mummy from Upper Egypt. This mummy has for about a century occupied a place in the college museum, but it is n'�t known how it came in tho posessiou of the college authorities. It was at length decided to unroll it, and Mr. E. A. Wallis Budge, M. A., of the British Museum, was requested to undertake the task. The mummy was placed ou a table on tho lloor of the theatre aud loosely covered with a cloth of fine linen of a faded purple color, which had formerly consti tilted its outer wrappings. Before proceeding to perform the operation of unrolling the mummy Mr. Budgo made some pio-fatory observations ou Egyptiao Mummies generally. He described the principal methods of preserving the human body by mummification as three iu number. Tho first process requires that the intestines should bo extracted and embalmed in four pots dedicated to four gods. Tho body was then soaked iu uatron for sevonty days. At tho end of that time it was washed and thou carefully bandaged in hundreds of yards of linen. By tho second process the intestines were simply dissolved out by means of natron, after which the body was soakod in natron aud then mummified. By the third process tho body was merely salted and put into a pit. Sometimes bitumen was used with other substances to fill tho cavity iu the body after the intestines bad been removed. At tho conclusion of his observations Mr. Budgo proceoded to unroll the mummy, which was closely swathed in scores of yards of thick, yellowish linen of fine texture. The bands of linen varied in width from four to five inches to about afoot. Some of thorn wero laid lengthwise-along the body; others wero wrapped aiouud it. At the beginning of tho process of unrolling there was a very perceptible sickly smell of aro-niatics, which as the work went ou gave place to a more pronounced and decidedly disagreeable odor. When a groat part of the Iiuon had been removed black stains, caused by tho bitumen, becamo apparent, and nearer to the body the wrappings had suffered considerably from contact with this substance. Two small pieces of linen with fringes wore discovered in tho course of the unrolling, and these bore inscription more oriels impaired by the bitumen. When at last tho coverings had been ro-raoved the body was found to be of a very dark brown color-so dark indeed as to be almost black. The akin where it remained was hard and shiny, the arms and hands lay lung th wise over tho abdomen, while tho heart and intestines were placed beneath the kuees. The features when disclosed stood out very clearly, and were th so of a rather handsome person, but the sex could not be determined. Glass eyes had been placed in tho head, and there was a linen plug in the ear. Mr. Budge, at the conclusion of his task, said that the mummy seemed to belong to a period about 800 years before Christ, It was filled with bitumen, and nearly all the flesh was destroyed in couscquouce. Parts of the skin remained upon the breast, and the bones wero in fairly good condition. The intestines instead of being put iu pots, as they usually wero in the case of persous of high birth, weie placed beneath tho legs. Tho ouly inscription decipherable was tho name of Osir is, folded over the part of tho stomach dedicated to that god and a prayer for tho heart of tho deceased. L.. U. CUftH 'OO? It is, as wo know, tho uuivorsal custom of college classes to desiguato themselves by tho last two figures of tho year in which thoy aro to bo graduated, as, for instance, the class of '00, or tho class of '!)9. This being so, what aro tho boys to do, who in tho course of time will be Graduated iu 1900? To be consistent they will have to say that thoy boloug to the class of '00, which is not only absurd but unpronounceable. Lot the oollogo debating societies tackle this momontous question. Como to think of it, too, won't it Bound a little qnoer to speak of the class of '01 and tho class of '02 ?-New York Tribune. Thero is nothing a woman tikes better than to got hold of a sick man who likes to try romodics. Evidence of Overfeeding. Northwestern Ayrieailturlst. A dainty appetite is usually tho host evidence- of overfeeding. Thtro ib a limit to tho capacity of an animal to appropriate food, aud profitable food ing must bo kept just inside that limit. This point differs in animals, and can ouly bo learned by careful study of each individual. Iudigcs-tioti, thf result of overfeeding, sometimes takes tiio form of hi.isows*, and this calls f.u caution and ehango of feed and a reduction of quantity. With grain green food of some kiud is needed, and with early pasture-grouud, oats or bran can always bu profitably fed, particularly to dairy cows, tbo prevailing opinion to tho contrary notwithstanding. WAIFS FROM THE WIRES. The Steamer Britanic Encounters a Terrible Blizzard. KAN INTO A FEAKFTJL SNOW STORM Which Rendered It Impossible to See Ten Feet Ahead, and the Ship BMAme Encrusted Iu a Coating of Ice-For Fourteen Honrs the Storm Raced With Fury -Passengers KepL Busy Catting Ice. New Youk, Jan. 20.-It leaks out to. day that the steamer Brittanic, which arrived last night, had a terrible voyage, though the officers would not admit that anything uuusual had occurred. From other sources it was learned that on December 12th the Brittanio ran into a snow storm which made it impossible to see ten feet -ahead. The hatches were closed and no one was allowed on deck. Captain Dawsou and first officer Cochrane, kept on the bridge the entire time, and the crew were put to work cutting tbe ice from the deck, and finally a number of steerage passengers were called into service to help. None of the cabin passengers knew what was going on. Two steerage passengers engaged iu the work had tbeir feet frozen. . PASCO ANI> CHANDUfiR. The Two Senators Socage In a Passage of Words. Washington, Jan. 20.-Senator Pasco addressed the Senate to-day on the paragraph in the President's message referring to federal control of elections. Senator Chandler replying, spoke to the charges ot politioal outrages in Florida. Pasco in response erpresse d the belief that the elections in Florida (ever since the memorable one of 1876) were as fair, as they were in New England. It was not surprising that there were some irregular-ties there, because Mr. Chandler bad been one of the principal agents in the Florida election fraud in 1876, and the demoralization resulting from that bad not entirely disappeared. The allusion to his course in Florida in 1876 was taken up by Mr. Chandler, who denied tho charge thai be bad then approached the chairman of the State canvassers, and bad promised that if the State was canvassed for Mr. Hayes, the majority of the returning board would be taken care of. lie denied that statement absolutely, and declared that the friends of Mr. Hayes had resorted to no extraordinary means on that occasion. Mr. Pasco said the charge had been often made and printed and this was the first time it had been denied. Onr Mary, For several years past rumors have been in circulation concerning the alleged mar-, rtage engagement of Mary Anderson but no credence was attached to any of tbem.

The first session of the Farmers'a Institute was held this evening in Mann's H ill. Though the weather was not by any meaus propitious, the had was, on (be whole, vei * well filltd by an appreciative audience. The lecturer ot the evening, Mr. I. A. Harvey, of Look Haven, was too ill to appear, aud bis place was oooip ed by L. S. Walter, of Mt. Uarmel. Th e subject of his lecture, "A Noble Life," wasjhandled1 in an able and thoroughly eloquent manner; so muob so that during the entire evening be kept his audience spell-bound. As an example of a noble life be took as his key note George Wiahart, one of the earliest Protestant martyrs of Scotland. He, in a luoid aud interesting style, reviewed the life of Wishart, showing the influence his life and example bad upon the religions vigor and mental life not only of Scotland, bat of the world. The fire which Wishart tben kindled is still burning and is increasing from year to year in brilliancy. The lecture was one of the best on such a subject, which it has ever been our pldasureto listen to, and the audience seemed to be perfectly delighted, and hoped that the day is not far distant when they again will have the pleasure ol hearing Mr. Walter. 0*ing to the fast that there was not a sufficiently large attendance of farmers, the organization of the Institute was postponed until the Thursday morning SbSBion. THURSDAY HORKIXG. The first business of the Institute was organizition. The following offioeis were unanimously elected: J. A. Herr, President; L. T. Lundy, Vice President; D. J. MoNanI, Secretary, The president then appointed a reception committee, composed of L. T. Lundy, W. F. Welsh, and R. R. Wilt. After these eleottous the wort of the Institute was immediately commenced and W. H. Stevenson, of Look Haven, launched at once Into the subject of his lecture, "The Farm as an Eiucator." "The period for eduoatiug boys and girls,'' said the lecturer, "is that which lies between the years 5 and 16, and if that be so the farm is an excellent educator, because there is work for the boy and girl at 5 and the boy and girl at 16. Mr. Stevenson's lecture wa? carefully prepared, and attentively listened to. Discussion was then invited, and Mr. Eldred in a few well.cboeen words showed wherein the farm had failed to educate. Mr. Sis-son Li Plume, then ma^ea few remarks in favor of the farm. T. B. Terry, who is an easy and interesting talker, explained to the Institute what education really Is. He showed clearly and distinctly that education is a life-long process. La Grippe seems to have taken a severe hold of the 1'iatitute lecturers, as the two next on the program, Prof. I. T. Ail man and Dr. C. R. Good, are both languishing under this troublesome complaint. A. P. Young, of Millvillp, Pa., was the next lecturer and his subjioc, "The Barn a Manufactory," he handled in an ableaod masteily manner. He defined the term "raw material" and showed that It waa very often misapplied and wa?, iu reality, only a relative term. Aiter the lecture a lively and interesting discussion took place and was much enjoyed by the audience. Tbe Iastitute adjourned at noon to resume at 1.30 p. m. THURSDAY AFTERNOON � Misa M. A. Meyer, of Clintondale, opened tbe afternoon sesiion with a paper on *vLife on a Farm." She said that life on a iarm is more likely to bo free from trouble than any where eUe. Here be has more elbow room and is not at all likely to interfere wilb bis neighbors. Here he is monarch of all he' surveys, his right there is none to dispute. It is time tbe farmers were up and doing if life were to be to them leas burdensome. Every farmer ought to have a well stooked library, not for appearance, but for use." "Next to a dear condolence," says Miss Meyer, "is a well ordered borne if we wish life on the farm ti be pleasant and endurable." D.sons-aioo being invited several interesting remarks were made by several of tbe gentlemen pn s r f the paper, "and oaunot bo*r tu live ahm me of our beat authors Bhe showed the great and lasting ii fluenoe of poetry. After remarks by several gt-ntlemeo the Iistituta was favored by a sing, "The Farmer's Boy," by Mr Sisson.
