Last night was the coldest night of .he year. The cold was the still dry cold of the northern latitude and quite an nnuaual thing for this part of the country. The lowest temperature recorded this morning was 0 degrees below zero, and in many places about town thermometers showed from 5 degrees to 3 deg. below zero. The atmosphere was crisp and frosty and very invigorating. Not a breath of air was stirring and notwithstanding the cloudless sky there was no thawing. At an early hour thia morning a fog of misty vapor, blown up by a warm south wind, settled down and congealed on the cold surfaces of roofs, trees, pavements and elsewhere. The extensive willow groves across the river were covered with a heavy hoar-frost that ihade a beautiful scene. Every branch and twig of trees was coated with a thick covering of the white frost, which tharise in temperature soon dissolved. "The Hu?e-Loomislce Co. today put a force of men to work at scraping the enow covering off the ice field so that the cold could have full action on the ice. The ice is thickening rapidly arid has now reached a thickness of 8 inches. In a few days the company will bo ready to begin cutting ice with a large force of men at work. The ice houses ac'oss the river are being put into good shape preparatory to starting the harvest. Black and Fancy Silks in plain and fancy weaves for Waist, Skirt or Gown, at H." J. BOWMAN & GO'S.

Billy did not wait long after his resignation was accepted until he sent forth a flood of views—not on 16 to 1, but on "imperialism," or colonial possessions, on which question he probably knows as little as he does on free coinage. In his interview he favors ratifying the treaty between the Uuit»d States and Spain, and keeping United States soldiers in the Philippines until a stable government can be organized. If United States troops are kept in the Philippines until a stable government can be organized, they will be there long after the daisies are blooming over Billy's grave, even should the gallant Colonel, who never saw an armed enemy, lives to be a centenarian. Billy wants a coaling station on Luzon Island, and a harbor in Cuba, and would not object to annexing Porto Rioo provided the natives were willing, but the Philippines never—they are too far off. And this is Billy's foreign policy—almost as confused and ae childisn as bis financial ideas. But anything that causos the Colonel to stop talking 16 to 1 nonsense will be a great relief no matter how chimerical. It will be at least a change of program for .the boy orator. The Modern Mother has found that her little ones are improved more by the pleasant Syrup of Figs, when in need of the laxative effects of a gentle remedy, than by any other.
