Officers Ball and Stainbrook" searched long and diligently about the house for the money without success; but they found a laprobe, which Charlie Ball remembered as bearing the description of one that was stolen last winter from H. Street. It was taken from a buggy at the depot one day last winter, while Mr. Street was waiting for tho passenger train.

Sterling has been wide awake for years and has continued its march of progress steadily and surely. Thousands of dollars go into new lm> provemeata and enterprises yearly, so that the paople here are used to such thiugtt, and the spending of three or foar huadmi thousand dollars in en» ypar in uew Improvements oau««s no particular sensation.

One prominent railroad official went so far as to state that the consolidation would be effected within thirty days. —The Boston gentlemen who are building* the electric street railroad in our city are doing so in the faith that Sterling has a prosperous future before her. Let our citizens show them that Sterling will grow in size and wealth. Let everything be done to build up industries that will support hundreds. In live years Rock river should have a hundred more manufactories along its banks, and the city should have 20 000 people. We havs now most of the conveniences of a city.
