JANUARY. Up-let us to the fields away, And breathe the fresh and balmy air. MARY HOWITT. TAKE nine-and-twenty sunny, bracing English May days, steal from March as many still, starry nights, to these add two rainy nlornings and evenings, and the product will resen1ble a typical Indian January. This is the coolest month in the year, a month when the climate js invigorating and the sunshine temperate. But even in January the sun's rays have sufficien t power to cause the thermofleter to register 70° in the shade at noon, save on an occasional cloudy day. Sunset is marked by a sudden fall of temperature. The village smoke then hangs a few feet above the earth like a blue-grey diaphanous cloud. - The cold increases throughout the hours of darkness. In the Punjab hoar-frosts form daily; and in the milder United Provinces
