The Reverend gentleman waa startled recently to find that the old man had piled kindling against a door of the church that leads into the basement from the rear; undoubtedly preparatory to the starting of a fire. It ia susplcioned that the church was destroyed by (Ire that was started in a like manner a couple of years ago, by some crank. That would, however, be a natural suspicion after the developments which we relate above, though there-might--bo-no foundation in fact for such suspicions of incendiarism. •—Marshal Fitzgerald ami-Policeman Howard, on Saturday afternoon, found a party of men carousing over a keg of beer under a clump of trees west of the Novelty Works. Several of the men being black-listers, and such a proceeding being contrary to law, the party waa at puce dispersed. One man waa shaken up for using back talk to the marshal, and afterwards vainly visited nearly every attorney's office \in town to "get law" against that official. Rob- ins6n,~whirdeTivefed "the beer to~the party at the place where it waa drunk, haa been sued by the city for violation of ordinance which {prohibits deliver ing beer at such places. If the tougha and black-listera peraist in procuring beer and having parties such as thia was, they will be "reached" by the ofli- ciala and severely dealt with. If they have no respect for themaelves they can expect none from the officers. —The Telegraph admits that Sterling ia all right and saya there ia nothing aarlous about the, malady that alllicts Sterling; "it haa only swallowed its cud, as the milk men say."- That's all right! A healthy cow always swallows its cud: it's a flick cow that can't raise it. Sterling has raised its cud and we fear it would be too big a mouthful for Dixon to chew. Let's compare notes: During the present year the cud raised In this city for public Improvements amounts to more than three hundred thousand dollars, most of which will be masticated be fore the snow flies It is distributed aa follows: For railroad improvements 8100,00000; for the sewers, already commenced, about $00,000 00; for street railways, 850,008,00; for city hall, 825,000.00; for street macadamizing, 810,000.00; for school house, 87,000.00.

Mr. Burt says that tlje Sixth's attendance on the association was perhaps the must satisfactory of that of any of the regiments which were at camp. The Sixth regiment attendance was large and continual, and the men spent much of their leisure time with the association. —We understand the street railway company will-begin laying traclrin this city next week. Aa the ordinance granting them a franchise requires them to lay their track at the established grade of the street the company wijl, without, doubt, comply with the requirement.

Hock Falln, G-2 tf —Prophetatown Spike: Luther Kenzie, who now owns the old Oliver Olcostead farm on Washington street, met with a serious accident lust Saturday.

Don't wring Oporto in on us; we do not give estimate on the Improvements in Rock Falla. > ' ' —Col. Watson has taken steps towards ascertaining the amount of travel on the main thoroughfares leading toward the business part of Sterling, and the result Is surprising. For three days of last week, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, from 0 a. m. to 8 p. m. he had a boy stationed on the free bridge leading to Rock Falls, one at the corner ot 3rd street and 4th avenue, one at the corner of 4th street and D avenue and one at Locust and 6th streets, counting the teams and persons that passed those polnta. Each boy was provided with in which to keep the records. The results have not yet been footed up, but from a little rough figuring it is found that during the three [days there were nearly 0,000 passersby on the bridge on foot, and about 3,000 vehicles, which carried 2,000 more people. The records kept by other boys are perhaps about equal to this. 2.000 passers by each day on each of the four branches or the road, makes 8,000 per day over the whole line, which la 8,000 possible customers for the street railroad for each day. If one fourth of this number, 2,000, ride each day at 3 cents per fare, the reciepts, $100 per day, ought to pay expanses. There will no doubt be tunny days when the traffic will t>e much more than this, and again, when U will b« leas.
