"Spirits" of departed friends of several in the audience made their appearance and held conversation with them The voice of each spirit of course did not exactly resemble that of the person when living, and the features of each could not be recognized, yet, no doubt, several were satisfied with the sitting. A stream of light from a dark lantern suddenly introduced when a "spirit" appeared would no doubt have disclosed aright lively living spirit draped in white. At least, that is what was discovered some time ago at DeaMoines and lately on the Pacific coast. Ilow people can be induced to continue faith in the jugglery business, when it costs so much, is beyond comprehension. It must be as an agent fur a me dium remarked recently, "A new sucker is born in this world every minute." —Mrs. Barbara Overholser, wife of Martin Overholser,of Coleta, and mother of Mr. J. P.

She was taken home immediately, and last night grew rapidly worse and died this morning. She was seventy-eight ysars of age. She was married to Mr. Overholser about lifty years, and reared a large family of children, of whom ulna are living. She did a great deal of good in this life, and when death came, she was prepared to go. She was not afraid of death, ftrid her only regret waa lu being Heps- rated from ht*r husband and family.

Thoro were delegates present frnni the different auxiliary socieities of tl e district and also Mrs. Fouke, uf Freeport, chairman of the convention. 1'rominent at every session was tlie interest and enthusiasm felt for the work engaged in, both by the ladies of •Sterling and those from abroad. The convention opened on Wednesday evening with an address by Rev. Fager, of S. Dixon on tho subject of "Help those Women." The Reverend gentleman evidently appreciates tlie work of women in the church and after hearing his address we wero not surprised to learn that bis church has a flourishing W. M. S. and also a wide awake "Mission B,md" organized among the children. Thursday forenoon was delightfully spent in discussing the ways and means employed in the prosecution of mission work. Aside from the m&ney raised for mission work, it waa fully demonstrated that the educating influence of the society is by no means small. Thursday afternoon was taken up with recitations, select rending and essays, all bearing on the subject in hand. At this meeting it was decided tliat our next annual convention will be held at Mendota. The convention closed on Thursday evening with an able address ou "iho Hindrances of Intemperance, in the Evnngelization of the World," by Mr?. Babcock, ot Rock Falls. The lady is well known'as a temperance worker in the vicinity of Sterling, and her earnest worda to the women uf the Evangelical church have not been in vain. The church choir as usual were fftlthful at their post with well-prepai ed music, which added much to the in • terest of the occasion; in fact, tho convention has proven such an encouragement to tho W. M. S. that they look forward to their next annual meeting with delight. + DiinoiM Ntnip Fair, ivorin. Hi.. Mriit. 2:j-;*7. From .S.'pt'Tnber li.'iid t'.>'/7Ui, inclti-' sivc, tin- (",. I!. & Q. H.

The sociable was well advertised and there was a considerable company congregated before the concert commenc ed. The programme"~of the"concert was not one hastily made up. The numbers on it were of a high class of music and the tine, execution was much enjoyed. Among those assisting were, Prof. C. S. Mills, who gave two piano solos; Mesdames Cole, Leitch, Zeller and Lukens, song; Joseph Korn, violin solo; Joseph Pennenbacker a very tine guitar solo; Ruth Aliment and Mrs. .Fred Fowler, vocal.duet; Joseph Korn, cornet solo. At 8:i!0 o'clock, the -uuslc having concluded, the "C" supper was served. There were eleven courses, which contempl it- ed nearly everything in the catalogue of cookery which could be called by a word beginning wllh "C." It was a collation without compare. -*- Yesterday we bad but brief time to mention the retiring of Mr. O. A Oliver, on account of ill health, from active business hero. Ilis successful business career began eighteen years ago, when he opened a drug store in Rock Falls. Throe years later he entered into partnership with Mr. N. G. VanSant and engaged in the grocery business, and some time after was a member of the firm of Jackson &-Oliver, dealers in groceries and dry goods. The flrm was afterwards Saxton & Oliver, which it remained until a year or two ago. Ten years ago Oliver & Co. started a drug store in Sterling, in the building now occupied by Frank Cochran. The business grew too large for the building, so seven years ago it was moved to the handsome store, which Mr. Oliver has occupied since. The drug business aud business of the other departments, stationery, etc., grew too large for one store, so about u year ago the firm of Oliver & Co. dissolved, Mr. Perry taking the drug business to another building, Mr. Oliver continued at that location until Friday, when he gave possession to his successors. He can look back with pride upon the (act that his ventures have alwuya been highly tmeceaaful, and his stores among the leading ones, lie will continue to reside lu Hook Falls and will devota hl» aUnistiou at {srcH<'r,t to tlu> tfullura of ce!«ry ou his celwrjr 9i)«Ui of Uoeft, Call at E.
