The wind veered around to the north yesterday about noon, and it began to grow cold rapidly; at 8 p. m. yesterday it was 6 degrees below and It continued to grow colder until 0 o'clock this morning, when the thermometer began to rise.. It is not phenomenal, but rather unusual for so cold a snap to visit us at this season. —Rev. Mr. Lusky, of Hopkins, received, a telegram last night from Buffalo, N. Y., that his father died about noon yesterday. Mr. Lusky went this morning on the 10:28 to attend the funeral which will take place tomorrow afternoon, The deceased was about 70 years of age and had become very weak and a very prominent man of that.clty.

That others were not made sick, but only said so. The supervisor evidently did not know when he wrote the foregoing that it was wood alcohol which the victim drank, or he might_have written differently. He declares women, children and babies drank it without ill effects. If that is a fact, then all we have to say Is that Pine Creek folks have cast iron stomachs and can drink fusil oil in raw state, and that carbolic acid and nitric acid would not affect them. Wood alcohol is a poison and a gill of it drank at once would knock the spots out of any man living anywhere in the world except in Pine Creek. AT ABOUT HALF PRICE, Isaac Brimmer was very agreeably BUS- prised by about thirty-five of her Wends, who came in to help her celebrate her birthday. When they were all comfortably seated, Rer. E. Brown stepped up to her and in behalf of her friends, presented her with an elegant silver castor, as a token of their friendship. After spending the evening very pleasantly, and wishing her many happy returns of the day, they took their departure. —A gentleman formerly from Lancaster county, and a firm believer in the. ground hog business, remained at home two or three weeks waiting for February 2, before taking a long trip he. bad in mind; desiring to know whether he should take spring or winter clothing with him. On the morning of the 3d he went to a neighbor to borrow a strap of bells for his sleigh; tha friend said, "I need mine; why not buy'One yourself t" The Lancaster man replied: "Not much; the ground hog didn't see bis shadow yesterday and we'll have spring in a week. I don'c bay bells for tftat abort time." Aad we have wandered much what he thiaki about the ground hog now; be U off on his Journey and it Un't convenient f ot him to come back b«r« to Uk» —The Young Men's Christian Association is an institution, non sectarian,that is to be found all over the world, in cities of from 2000 and upwards. It is endorsed not only by the church, but also by manufacturers, railroads and business houses because of the practical Christian work it has done and is doing. Under its charter, young men from forty y ears old to eighteen may be members. It is in contemplation to organize a branch here at Sterling, with a secretary at a liberal salary and with handbome reading rooms, a gymnasium &c. It is thought that there will be no difficulty in getting together a sufficient number to start the order here, and the State manager has promised that when the proper time conies to organize, be will come l>ere and raise in two weeks, sufficient money to defray expenses for a year. The V. M. C. A. secure employment for the unemployed, watch over the weak, encourage the doubting, raise the fallen, offer h melike rooms for young men every evening, hold religious exercises, nud in various other ways aid iu the great work of bearing the world onward to a higher civilization. —Old Timer paid us a call this morning and was ready to scalp us because we said he agreed to all we said when he called the other day. A friend who had called just 'before Old Timer, stepped cut of the office to see one pf the printers and left a freshly lighted cigar upon our desk; this old ancient picked up and put in hi9 mouth and then began: "Khoumatiz kin lay you out as well as me, an' 'twern't the cold weather at all, an'I don't like it fur a paper ter do me wrong. You kin poke fun at me as much as you please, but jist stick to the truth as I does." All the time he was pulling away at our friend's cigar, vigorously, "Good seegyar, this here; guess somebody gin it to ye; editors kaint aford toe buy this kind." He then lay back in the chair he had taken upon entering and threw his feet upon the table within a few inches of our nose. "You think this yere's some winter don't ye, now V Well let me tell ye that back east, some sixty year 1 hgo, I don't 'member 'xac'ly the year, but it was Just afo'Iwas gi'n free, it sot in cold long in September; everything friz up solid; snow tumbled down about a foot and a half deep the first night. I tuck my gal out sleighing the 25th day of September;'twere a Sunday. Well, it 'gin to snow afo* we'd gone more'n five mile, an' I swan toe gracious though I turned right back, ef it didn't snow so deep an' there was no driftin' uuther, that we stuck right fast in the driveway. It happened fortunet thet we was off agin' a farm house. I left my gal In the sleigh and made fur the house; but Lor' bless you, I got no f ur- der 'n' the gate. My yells V screeches brung the man to the door. His stable were a nigh to the house, 'n' he 'u' hla two boys contriv' to git out thar' 'u' git a yoke o' oxen. They tied 'em to a big scalding pot, an' in 'bout three hours broke the way so's the gal 'n' me got in the house and the horse and sleigh in the stable. It chanced it was the gal's uncle that saved us. Well, this is w'at I'm a comin' at. It snowed an* snowed, 'n' blamed ef it didn't snow afo it got through eighteen foot on a level. Well, Sir, it was clean the middle uv May afo we got outer that there house an'backjigin home; an' then in a boat, yes, a boat; for when the thaw come it come altogether an' the water waa five feet deep on a level fur four days.

That were a winter the like o' which aiut been sence,—although—" But here we called a halt and gave him a dime to give us a rest, which he the more willingly did as his cigar had smoked out and we declared we bad no tobacco, and he said be must have some "ter wunst." Old Timer, as will be seen by the foregoing, is on deck again, and, we shall be surprised if our readers dont hear from him again.
