BEHGIOX OFTES TESTED BY THE BKOff.
Terhaps one of the most extraordinary
signs of the times next to the recent per
sistent wet weather, is the fact that the in
quiry for "Beautiful Snow" poems has be
come wonderfully slack. Letters asking
for the publication, or offering to supply
copies of the original Terses, are reduced to
an aTerageof about one daily, and as no
one can excuse poetic relerence to the con
gealed shower, its actual presence may, be
fore long, demand a certain amount of
apology, if onlj lor taking things so coolly.
The snows while it falls, although it can
not rank with the plagues of Egypt, which
in modern days included the quadrennial
vote of Southern Illinois, is still sufficient
to make man as helpless as Egyptian dark
ness or a London fog. Just imagine a snow
fall to last for a week or ten days in West
ern Pennsylvania, The people of Pittsburg
would stand in danger of suffering from hun
ger before the end of the time. It would not
pack as in the Canadian climate, where
seven montns winter and five of Dad weither
is the order, with the added incubus of a
weather prophet who is invariably wrong in
' his predictions. But still snow, although an
evil, can admit ol some good being drawn
from its nresence, even as a straight Eepub
lican vote might be extracted from a Mug
wump. The pood nature which is so generally
prevalent during a snow storm makes it a
sort or application which draws oat the pub
lic humor in a much pleasanter manner than
a fly blister would, and makes the people
generally look upon the application as a
joke on all creation.
THE SMAUj BOY'S JOKE.
And it is a joke, particularlv to the small
boy. who, with an ostentatious interest in
"Where Did You Get That Hat?" makes a
practical investigation by knocking it off
with a snow ball. This may be rough on
the hat, but it is great fun for the boys, and
where is the man who was never a boy? He
is the kind who does not enjoy a snow
Another lesson the snow storm inculcates,
as it shows us the difference in the condi
tions of life between ourselves and the Eski
mos, is to impress upon the great American
intellect the "instability of the great evi
dences of civilization, which, including tel
egraph, telephone, railroad and mail serv
;nn tn wtintii frinmnliH of invention and
genius, irom the Dailx Dispatch to the
milkman's wares, which escape Inspector
McUutcheon's observation, may be cut off,
interrupted, withheld from us for perhaps
days without any means of redress against
the soft but unyielding and flinty-hearted
snow. The great lesson that is conveyed by
the blocking or the results of years
of labor simply through the trans
formation of rain into crystal
would tend to purify the moral atmosphere
of the notion that the progressiveness ol the
age is attributable to inevitable causes and
logical consequences, and that mankind by
its own exertions has secured a fixity of
tenure of its wonderful modern achieve
ments. The faet is clearly demonstrated
thiough the agency of a snowstorm that of
these humanity is reducedlto the position of
a tenant-at-will at the mercy of the first
blizzard whicn comes along, which is known
to have about as much of the qualitv of
mercv very highlT strained as the average
Irish landlord bent on an eviction. This n
a good lesson, calculated to knock a certain
amount of conceit out of even a Pennsyl
vanian. HOW IT STOPS TEADK.
But,Jtalking of object lessons, the snow
storm is as full of theme as the newspapers
are of suggestions for mayoralty candi
dates. It shows what a delicate substance
in large quantities can paralyze trade and
commerce. The finer the snow, the softer
and more easily it melts without friction,
the more determined and impassable is the
obstruction. The closer it is to being rain,
while retaining its character as snow, the
more completely does it impede locomotion.
The fine snow which cannot support a vehi
cle on runners, but is solid enough to hin
der wheels from making headway, is the
greatest enemy to communication and com
fort. This is true of all half-way things,
from an act of Congress to the Mugwump
vote, thincs liable to be changed at the least
firessure, being solid now, liquid again, or
ike the two instances quoted, frequently
Of course the beauties of a snow storm
have been written and sung to such ac ex
tent that whoever does not know of them is
not capable of distinguishing the mantle of
enow from a Connecticut wrapper, and, in
fact, the livelier in cities sees enough of the
line of the latter in the former to prejudice
him upon this point. But there are other
points in which the snow may be taken as a
test of the religious character of the citizens,
as well as setting forth moral and instructive
lessons. The church congregation which
Jets the snow or ice accumulate in front of
its place of worship may be economical and
laying up treasures where the sexton or
his assistants cannot consume them, but
its practical Christianity is somewhat out of
.repair, resembling the streets in being either
cold or slushy or both. There is nothing in
the Divine ordinances to prevent the city
ordinances from being carried out, but the
latter are frequently neglected, as the firtt
snowstorm will demonstrate. Here again
'the snow becomes a test for good citizenship
as well as of the truly religious and fre
quently necessary desire to suppress pro-
ifanitr- Thus, as the feathery white crystals,
. i dropping as the gentle rain from heaven,
" bring out the good qualities of the men and
the sealskin sacques of the women, it has an
ennobling and beautifying effect which will
serve as an apology for the harm it might do,
but kindly refrains from attempting in this
.part of the country at least. Monte.

Applicants for License Eager for an Early
People who propose to apply for license to
sell liquor next spring are much interested
in the question as to whether the Xicense
Court shall begin work a month earlier or
at the time previously fixed. Should the
session begin earlier it would throw the
question of granting license to the Judges of
Common Pleas Court No. 1, as the session
would be thrown back into the December
term. . .
The rather invidious suggestion has been
put afloat that Judges Ewing and White,
as they mav soon come before the people for
re-election," might be willing to allow the
license business to go into No. 1, as the re
jection of applicants is not always calculated
to make political strength, and that the
Judges in Common Pleas No. 1 are practi
cally at a distance from the voter at present.
This, however, is not an elevated platform
from which to view the subject. Doubt
less all the Judges regard it as a
disagreeable duty. Judge Stowe has
frequently expressed himself pointedly on
the disposition of the Legislature to mate
clerks of Judges, by giving them work such
as the supervising and counting of election
returns, etc, work in which the judicial
function has small part
It is likely that the matter of bearing
license applications will be decided by all
six Judges. It is held by some that the
Judges in No. 21iad power to fix the matter
to suit themselves at the September term,
but Judge White in his utterances some
weeks ago did not talk that way.
