Sterling won UIB lirst game, the second was ;i tie, and yesterday the (Jalesl.iirps WOH 0 fi> .1. A telegram from GalesburK says the Sterlings quit, playing yesterday at the end of the 7th inning, as the Galesburf.s were robbing them, through their umpire, no doubt. —Mr. Lew Osborne, a worthy old soldier who has been ill for many months with a paralylic disease, caused in the army, which has confined him to his bed, has been granted a pension of 8">0 per month. It begins six and one half months back. As soon as ho receives the back pay, ho will go, accompanied by his wife, to a hospital at Indianapolis for treatment. —Charles F. Furley, of Prairlcville, left today for Elburn, Iowa, to look after buildimj a now house on his farm near that town. Just last year he built ii new dwelling there at a cost of S1200. A few days ago it caught lire by the explosion of a lamp, and was burned down, and most of the contents, which belongs to the tenants, was lost. Mr. Furley had S300 insurance on the building. . —Cracksmen entered the postollice at Moline last night through an open transom, drilled holes through each of the two vault doors,-and then rilled the vault and oflice at their leisure, taking Sl.noO-worth of postage stamps, 8300 in cash belonging to the office and additional cash from registered letters, one of which alone contained 8310 for the Barnard & Leas Manufacturing Company of that city, ..Thorn in no chin to the burglars, who were evidently professionals. —Rockford manufacturers have risen in wrath against their four railroads, because of the high freight rates they are compelled to pay. One large manufacturer, II. W. Price, says rates are now much higher than before the war, and that each time a new road has been built in the town, the railroads formed a pool and raised the rates. In this city there are two roads which are not any too friendly with each other, so that rates are not as high as at some other places. In fact, rates here are the same as Peoria and other large cities of this part of the state. -—That rare beauty, the Magnolia scented Moon Flower, is now in full bloom on the south piazza of the residence of Mrs. Margaret Davis, First Ward. The tube-shaped corollas'are curled up during the day, but as soon as darkness comes on, they unfold like an umbrella, with a sudden burst, that is amusing. The vine is a luxuriant grower, and is already entwined amid the blinds of the second storey. There are numerous buds, and they promise to illuminate the night until frowt enda their glory. The plant is known to botanists as Iporaoea Noctlflora. The (lowers measure about four inches across the salver-shaped disk, and are at their best at four in the morning. Visitors welcome. —A special American Press Association telegram from Liverpool, England, says the labor strike there is ended, the employers having conceded the advance in wages demanded. —Rev. G. W. Pearl is here from Wellington, Kansas, the guest of his wife's parents, Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Colcord, and will give a talk at the Christian prayer meeting Thursday evening. —A. R.

Howe and Miss Lillian IIo,we, of EnQeld, Mass., are on a visit to Mr. W. N. Whipple's. Misa Howe is teacher of elocution in the Vermont Methodist College, of Montpelier, Vt. —Fulton Journal: There la a movement In tbls city in the direction of organizing a stock company, for .the purpose of leasing grounds, tilting up a race track and holding annual fairs or races. A number of citizens ' have agreed to take stock to the amount of $100 _• : T —About 500 acres of land in the west part of Woodland Township, Carroll County, has been leased with a view to ezperimetanl tests of the iron iron ore found in that locality. The quality has been definitely settled as superior. The only question to be settled Is relative to the quantity. —A convention of delegates of the Woman's Missionary Societies of Mendota and Freeport districts of the Evangelical church, began today in the Evangelical church of this city. About .twenty delegates are present. The ladies tfre discussing many topiqs of interest In their work. —The Morrison fair Is booming today. The exhibits were mostly arranged yesterday and today everything opened in ilaa shape. Today is Old Settlers' day, and hundreds of old men and women are gathered together. The fair promises to b» Interesting; throughout, and there will no doubt be a large atteu4a»o« from tni* «nd o£ Vhe couu tjr. —Fulton Journal: Rev. B. II. Cartwright, of Oregon, was in town Saturday, the guest of Rev. and Mrs. Cass Davis. Mr. Cartwright is eighty-one years of age. Over litty years ago he preached the first sermon ever preached in Fulton in Dr. Reed's house. The only person living who was among the congregation at that time "is Mrs Reed, aged eighty-eight years. Mr. Cartwright organized the first M. E. church in Lyons. He organized the iirst M. E. church in Iowa at Burlington fifty years ago. The meeting was held in a small room and yet there waa room enough for two beds and the congregation. Recently he preached in Burlington In a church.that cost $02000 and there were 2,000 people in the congregation. Mr. Cartwright is hale and strong, although over fourscore years old. —An exchange says: "The Sterling GAZETTE thinks that the improvements going on in Sterling this year, will cost about $200,000. This will be a big bill for somebody to pay, besides the big bonded Indebtedness that is already a burden to the taxpayers," But a small part of this money is raised by taxation. The street railroad is built and owned by Boston capitalists,, the electric light plant Is built and owned by a local company, and rented to the city at a small advance over the cost of gas, and the stores and residences that are built here are certainly not built by- taxation. They are all improvements. < The bonded debt of the city is very small, only $15,000 and the rate os taxation is low. Sterling is all right, notwithstanding tho efforts of neighboring papers to make-it appear otherwise. —Morrison Sentinel: Coroner H. C. Donaldson was called to Albany early Sunday morning to hold an inquest on the body of Giles W. Pease. The facts brought out show' deceased to be 53 years of age, unmarried and living in the old home of his parents with an only sister. On Saturday forenoon he was engaged with his lawn mower in his yard. He ate dinner as usual and went to the barn to water and feed bin horse. Some three or four hours later he was found lying in the broiling sun close beside the cistern and within two feet of the side of the barn, dead. The horse was loose In the yard, having the halter strap thrown over his neck. The verdict of the coroner's jury was that he came to his death from sun-stroke or insolation. Mr. Pease was the sou of Deacon Henry t'eaae, a prominent and highly respected citizen of Albany tor ovar forty years. Tho ouly surviving member of U«e family Is the »l*U>r —Turn my Robinson v>';is lined .5 in .ind co^ta by Magistrate Goltimn today for violating an ordinance which repu- latps Urn delivery rf borr in casfs. Sliady spots in secluded planes arc not •m KIP Hat of places'allowed. It was his lirst offense. —The Commissioner of Pensions has made some more appointments of pension examining surgeons. For this district, with headquarters at Sterling, he has appointed Dr. J. II. Moaner, of i'ro- phetstown, and Dr..II.C. Donaldson, of Morrison. , —A. D. Richardson is home from Kansas City, where ho has boon for several months. He has completed his work there and will remain at Sterling for a time. He says many of tho towns of the west are overdone; work is scarco and many complaints arn heard. People having employment in Sterling had better stay here. ' —Last evening at about 8:30 o'clock the moon passed between us and the planet Jupiter, which is now the most brilliant object in the southern heavens in the early evening hours, eclipsing, or, as the language of astronomy has it, occulting It. The phenomenon is not absolutely rare, but it doesn't happen often enough to prevent it being a very interesting occurrence. —Miss Snyder, daughter of Senator Snydtr of Fulton, has been engaged by the Board of Education of Sterling school, to give lessons in music to the pupils one day each week. The most attention will be given to the intermediate and primary pupils. Miss Snyder is having good success as a teacher at the Fulton school, where she gave instruction during the past year. —Commander Harrison, of Will Robinson Post, has received an invitation from Rockfoitf Post No. 1, invit- iug the boys of the U.

A R hall in that city at 12 o'clock m., on that day. —Polo Clipper: Tho hole that was being bored on the farm of Mr. Tomlinson, a few miles from Chadwick, for coal or gas, has proved a failure for either of these natural products of deep openings in the earth. AtSOO feet they struck water and now thny have a (lowing welt of line water. We understand the company has abandoned the drilling for coal or gas. —John McElroy, one of t he old citizens of this city, died yesterday at his home on nth avenue, north of 4th street. For a few days he was very sick with Inflammation of the bowels and other troubles. Mr. McElroy was a skilled carriage maker and (w'hen in health was employed in Hess' shop He was about 72 years of age, and leaves a wife and several children to mourn his loss. The funeral takes place on Thursday, at 2 p. m.,at St. Patrick's church. —The Telegraph says that we hire outsiders to play ball, (as if the town was too slow to produce its own players.) Well, what of it? Don't you know that Sterling is just now putting on metropolian airs? Why not hire base ball players? Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Chicago does. When Dixon grows to that proportion that she can support street railways, free delivery, sewers, and the many other conveniences that Sterling now enjoys, it will be time for her to talk of hiring ball players; if, indeed, the game bo in existance at that time.
