* The snow fall of four inches last week was pretty well softened under the power of the noonday sun, but the cold wave coming by evening made the sleighing all that could be desired for several days, and our people were not slow to improve the golden opportunity. On Thursday evening, a large company in sleds and sleighs went to the hospitable home of William Brown, near Arcadia, Baltimore County, where they received a warm welcome, such as Mr. Brown and his most estimable lady know how to give, and an evening of enjoyment with the family and a number of their neighbors soon passed, with fine music, recitations and interesting social games. -- American Sentinel, Feb. 24, 1894.
