Coasting on Dexter's hill proved rare
sport up until Saturday night for a

Danger at guiding the long racing

creases the sport. The rising genera

The slolghlng-Is at nn end. The
sun killed It. With one backhanded
stroke It dlew the sloigher's path of
snow yesterday afternoon nnd there'll
bo no more this winter. A large num

almost all of the traces of a snowfall
and are as bare from whiteness as on
a hot September afternoon. The hob
runners that had been fastened to the
vehicles of all sorts and shapes , have
been taken off nnd relegated once
more to the hayloft , while freshly
oiled wheels have been spun on again.
The epidemic of la grippe continues
with unabated fury In Norfolk and
there Is today scarcely a home In the
city In which some one or more mem
bers of the family have not been or
are not , afflicted with this dreaded
aching. Doctors report that people
are 111 with the attack literally by the
hundreds. It Is just bad enough to
make the patient feel the limit In
meanness and yet not severe enough
to be given the sympathy that real
Illness ought to have. The germs

It Is springtime , for fair. The gold
en sun came up over the eastern hill
tops this morning like a gilded sum
mer's day. The air is crisp and sweet
and fresh , just balmy enough to drink
In with long , deep breathing , and fra
grant enough to remind the inhabi
tants of the northwest that there Is
no place like home , after all. It has
made many a man forget the troubles
of the severely cold three-weeks which
passed not long ago , and has revived
hope that the robins may some time
sing again. In fact they can almost
be heard singing today , in the far
away south , and It seems , from their
coming constantly nearer nnd nearer ,
that they are flying this way. The
groundhog , after all , may have been
mistaken. Perhaps the winter winds
are done right now , the gardening sea
son Is at hand. At all events the wild
geese flying northward will be
watched for with eager eyes by the
small boy who has no gun nnd by the
bigger men who have boon paying
coal bills , from now on.
