That blows so chill and strong, And yet, as clear as Jenny Lind, Pour out that cheery song? Tour world is full of sleet and storm, With not a flower to see, Ton have no shelter safe and warm. Only a dripping tree. Winter is here, and will not go, But still you bravely sing, Careless of threatening frost and snow, Your joyous song of spring. O little singer! wise beyond Our questioning hearts that hear, Tour brave, prophetic notes respond To the advancing year; Though earth be chill and spring be late, Tour purpose still holds true To sing your best, and singing, wait Till coming skies be blue. God's year holds winter yet His spring Conies on through storm and sun ; Not vainly does the robin sing Of joys that are begun ; O redbreast in the cedar tree, Within the falling rain ! Brave chorister of victory, Sing that...

Three persons were killed, fifteen were Injured, some of them seriously, nnd the lives of nearly a hundred persons were endangered by a fire in a five-story tenement house nt 44 Hester street, New York. The dead are: Berel Weinstein, bis wife Anna and their 1-year-old son. They were suffocated and burned in their apartments on the fifth floor. That more Ikes were not lost was largely due to 2e prompt action of three policemen, who, seeing flames in the ball, rushed through the building and aroused the members of sixteen sleeping families.
