Over tho bouse-tops, over the street, Over the heads of the people you meet; Dancing, Flirting, Skimming along, Beautiful snow! it can do nothing wrong, • Flying to kiss a fair lady's cheek, . . Clinging to lips in a frolicsome freak, Beautiful snow from the heaven above, Pure as an angel, and fickle as love! Ob ! the snow, the beautiful snow! How tbe flakes gatherand laugh as tbey go 1 Whirling about in its maddening fun, It play s in its glee with every one, Chasing, Laughing, Hurrying by. It lights up the face, and it sparkles the eye .' Aud even the dogs with a bark and abound, ' Snap at tbe crystals that eddy around.

+~»*¦^» -»¦ "figg-If a man faints away—says Hall's Journal of Health—instead of yelling out like a savage, or running to him to lift him up, lay him at full length on his back'on tho floor loosen the clothing, push the crowd away so as to allow the air to reach him, and then let him alone. Dashing water over a person in a simple fainting fit is a barbarity. The philosophy of a fainting fit is, the heart fails to send the proper supply of blood to the brain ; if the person is erect that blood has to bo thrown up hill; but if lying down it has to be projected horizontally, which requires less power, as is ap • parent. -:• ,+ ?¦ ^» .» ». ¦.

We are 'mistaken - if Intemperance is not the prime.oause.of all the poverty which exists and has existed for y-eurs in every community, and perhaps no.man better understands all the evils springing from this vice, than the writer of these paragraphs. Nov is poverty alone to. be attributable to this indulgence, but the crime, suffering and ^he greater number or early deaths in every Pommunity, are to be traced directly to intemperance. In every age this has been the same. In every land the same evil has produced the same effect—an effect in which perishes the genius and generosity of youth, the usefulness.of manhood, and the respectability, honor and trust-of matureagc.

flgr-The Cleveland (Ohio) Plamdealer gives the -heart-rending particulars of the death of Mrs. Joseph Boyd by falling into' a Cistern. It seems that the cisterri was under the kitchen, and access was had to it through a trap door. No one ¦ was in the house but Mrs. Boyd and her little child of three and a half years, who, of course, cannot explain the particulars of the mother's death. When her two other children returned from school they asked their little sister where their mother was, who told them "she was in the cistern ;" that her mother told her to bring her a chair, which she did; that her mother then wanted her to kiss her. The little girlran. for her father, who came and found the body of his wife at the bottom of the cistern, a corpse. The two chairs were also found in the cistern, from which it is inferred that she slipped in but did not at first drown, and calling upon her little child for a chair, tried to get out but could not, and called for a second chair with no ...

We were glad to notice the active part which Dr. Wmhjate, of Bellefonte, took in the proceedings, because as a surgeori dentist and operator he has no superior in this part of the State.

Marx Loss has become a partner in th dry-goods arid grocery business with Isaac Mat. Our friend Marx has long "been an essential feature'in that establishment, and his popularity is such that even an ir iterest in the store cannot increase it much.' The business under such riien as May & Loeb,' is bound to succeed. Mr. May is now in the city purchasing another of those large stocks of goods, which have formerly attracted so great a custom. In a week or two, a full list of their spring goods will be advertised in the Press. Every careful man who owns stock or property, is insured in some reliable Insurance company. This is essentially necessa-j ry to preserve a man from loss by fire^—and in more than one instance has preserved men and families from ruin and poverty. The Farmers' Mutual Fire Insurance Company of Centre'County is one of the best incorporated companies in the State.

We are often excited to sympathy by tho perusal of a history of suffering. As it is detailed in books, it presents a mournful picture, and we cannot remember ever having perused a volnme of the "same touching interest and eloquent appeal as the Memoirs of Miss Rankin. From her earliest youth she suffered—not with one disease, but- with a multitude, in their worst forfn. For twcntyrthrCe years she has.not able to leave her chamber, and for twelve years has been confined to her bed. These are facts attested by her attending physician, Dr. D. R. Good.

Lady's Home" Magazine. Philadelphia: T. S. Arthur. The pen of T. S. Arthur has done as much towards the refinement of the people, as that of any. other living writer of light fiction. The same motives seem to move him to write for his Magazine, that induced him to the creation of some of his romances. He is inspired to portray 'virtue aud morality—and under this influence we are not astonished with the success which his periodical ;has.achieved. ~ The Home Magaline, indeed, is one of the favorites of the family circle.
