which is probably the most that
has fallen at any one time during
the winter. Since Saturday the
weather has been more pleasant
and duriug the day the sun has
come out bright. The nights,
however, are cold and it will be
several days before all the snow is
melted, and it will likely be the
middle of next week before farmers
will be able to do any work iu the
field. Altogether the spring has
been very backward and farmers
are greatly delayed with their work.

Again we ask why would it

become almost intolerable and
unless something is done it will

drive one to distraction, while the
