At this season of the year tcacheis and
directors of public schools should be ex
tremely careful In their treatment of chil

condition of the weather, with careless ex

most unhealthy periods. The diseases in
cident to childhood arc now prevalent, and
they aro very much facilitated by tho
changeable coudltiyu of tho weather. Chil
dren should bu warmly clad before leaving
home, und have good sound shoes. They
should bent once admitted to a.comfort

little common-sense discretion now will

This will save a great deal of annoyance,
as most letters now weigh so near the half

pay two cents extra for a letter that is of
no value to them. The other change in
the law Is currying newspapers lrom pub

After four weeks of much suffering tho
deceased fell a victim to that dread dl
seasu diphtheria. Though for awhile
hopes were entertained for her recovery,
thu Inst few days sho grew rapidly vtorsu
und it became evident her time on earth
was short. As Is natural for one so young,
sho felt a desire to live, but at thu same
lime expressed a willingness to die II God
so willed It. A short tlmu before death
she bade good. By to the friends and re.
quested tliem to meet her iu that better
laud, whero there shall bu no more parting
and idl tears shall be wiped away. Her
sufferings weru Intense a gienter part of
thu lime, yet she boru them with patience,
not a murmur escaping her 'Ips. But at
tho last sho fell quietly asleep into that
sleep which knows no waking surrounded
by weeping I "lends and neighbors. The
funeral services were held at Bt. Gabriel,
Cole's Creek, tho following Wednesday, by
Itev. Rockwell, after which the remains
weru laid to rest In the cemetery, to await
the sounding ot tho trumpet Iu that last

Tno commissioners of Stato Fisheries,
give Bvo reosons why fish are not more
plentiful In tho rivers of Pennsylvania, Tho
first reason Is, because of the dams which
obstruct nearly nil tho largo streams. The
second Is, the lack of adequate flshwnys.
Thcso nro tho two most Important reasons,
and the cotporatlons who obtnlned tho
right to tjulld dams for carrying on their
various Industries nro responsible for these
two causes of depriving us of fish. Tho
third nnd fourth reasons nro tho mm oh
servanco of the close of tho spawning sea
sons, anil the many Illegal und deadly de
vices employed nt nil seasons for tho capture
lng nnd killing of fish. Tho fifth nnd last
reason Is tho pollution of streams with ma
torlal poisonous to the fish. This Is tho
most Important reason affecting this sec
tion, as long ns the coal mines nro con.
tinned In successful operation nnd the vast
amount of debris carried Into our streams,
wo cannot expect fish to Inhoblt them. Tho
day for successful shad fishing nlong the
Susquehanna In this country is past. How.
ever we should bo glad to see the flshwnys
repaired, and we might bo able to catch u
few stray shad, Or, better still our smaller
streams might be stocked with them.

Afler St. Patrick's Day wo usually ex.
pcc to see signs of the opening of spring,
but this year, though Easter Is so near at
hand, the harsh weather continues, pneu
monia is abroad, the buds are chilled, and
nature affords few evidences that the sea.
son of bloom Is coming. We have even
recently had snow storms, and for a fort
night past thu weather has been harsh, and
the death rale from diseases induced or ag.
gravatcd by tho cold winds has run up.
But spring must at lust get here in real
Ity, as well as uccordlng to tho culendar,
and therefore It is an appropriate time to
speak of tho fashions which ate to prevail
when the thermometer rises. What will
bo the costumes for women is a subject too
extensive for hasty discussion, for of late
years tho variety has been becoming great
er and greater, and moro than formerly Is
left to the Individual taste and judgment.
That is a proof of intellectual advance,
ment, for It shows that women arc not con
tent to dress after an arbitrary standard
fixed for them, but are exercising the right
to display their own artistic taste In modi.

Tho tashtons in dress for men furnish a
subject which can be far moro satisfactori

case, for several years back. A man can
wear a coat through two or three or even
four seasons now Vlthout attracting atten.
tlou by the singularity of tho garment, so
long as It is whole and clean. Trousirs
made two years ago are very little different
from tho trousers which the tailors are
constructing tor this spring. A critical
eye might detect an old cut, but tho run of
persons would not discover that they wero
not of tho latest style. It Is true that the
sum of tho slight yearly changes in gar-
mcnts btcomes considerable and even great
lu the course of live or ten years. A hat,
for Instance, of 1880 or 1875 looks very odd
now. The tight trousers and then tho
looso trousers worn not so many years ago

This year the changes In tho fashions of
men's apparel will bo even less marked
than usual. Say what you will, next to

ment which most helps or mars a man's
appenranco Is his trousers. We know very
well that (ho highest triumph of tho tailor's

can make that, but the cutting and fitting
must bo Intrusted to n thorough arllsl, nnd
ono of long ar.d varied experience. Nor
do we deny that It Is a pleasure to contcin
plate such a coat, a delight to wear It, and
a moral support In the midst of trials to
have It on. But however pcrfict the coat,
no man can bo called well dressed unless
his trousers have tho fit and tho hang

stuff which Is exactly ndaptcd to tho pur

strains from wear which soon reveal the
unskillful tailor nnd betray defects of ma

may bo deceived us to tho coat, but no

Trouseis now under construction by tho
tailors of artistic ability arc just about as
they wero last year j that Is, ,they preserve
tho golden mean between tight nnd loose,
nnd tho disposition Is to muko them of

advancing culture, and tho sumo desire to

who parade themselves nnd their pet ac
complishments. As to coats there is renlly nothing new to
say. They aro "as they havo been for two
years, with the slightest of modifications.
Hats are more altered, for the hatters seem
to think that their trade requires that thu
variety shall bo great enough from year to
year to compel men to buy a new hat even
before tho old t worn out. Modest and
quiet colors are tho thing in cravats and
scarfs, which should always be chosen
with the discretion of nn artist, for their

On Monday evening a week as I was
leading my horses to water at the brook,
having just returned and unhitched from
tho sled, n hook of one of the side straps of
the harness fastened In the flank of tho op
poslto horse, severely hurting it btforo it
could be loosed. A person may exercise
all the caro possible, accidents will hupped
in splto ot It all. Any person examining
the structure of those hooks would say it
wns impossible for them to fasten to a
horse under any circumstance wnalever.
