Mr. Heege's role is a difficult one to till, yet he does it like a native. His support is excellent and all did so well as to keep the audience highly entertained for three solid hours. —Counterfeit 810 United States notes with Webster's head, are Hoatttig atouud the country in great numbers, yt.

A reporter who snatched it this morning to drii.k Mr. Dillon's health, waa knocked down just as ho was about to drink. The smell of the ammonia in the flask did it. How many thirsty men at Amboy will meet the sarae fate? —At noon today in Chicago, occurred the marriage of Miss Maggie Keller, formerly of this city, and Mr. Charles Baker of Freeport. The bridal party go to Freeport this evening, where a reception is given at the home of the groom's parents. The bride waa an employee of the GAZETTF. for several years previous to going to Chicago two years ago. She is a most excellent young lady, and none wish her more happiness than her many friends in Sterling. Mr. and Mrg. Baker will reside in Chicago. —The Road Commissioners of Hopkins township are doing work this year which might well be copied in some of the other townships around here. They are making permanent graded roads in all parts of the. township. More of that kind of work is being done there this year than ever in one year before. When the roads are once graded, macadamized and gravelled they will need little attention other than slight repairs for long after. We understand improvements are being made on some of the roads in the townships south of here. —George Carroll's road cart business has outgrown the shop at the east end of town, business being pretty good with him. He has made some improvements about his vehicle, and an invention made by Geo. F. Woodard has also been Incorporated with his cart.

R. and Company E, with the Keystone band and a large number of other people. The Morrison military company and some of the old soldiers from there and the west end of the county came up on the Northwestern passenger and joined the excursion here. AH went bound to have a good time at Amboy, and they are no doubt having it. —Fulton Journal: The last meeting of the Executive Council of the Modern Woodmen, held at Elgin, September 5th arid Oth to listen to a report of a special committee appointed several days ago to investigate th.e affairs of the order, recommended several Important changes in the system and business of the ollices of Head Consul, Head Clerk and Head Physician, nearly all of which were adopted with but little opposition. No more members are to be received in the so-called Independent Camp and it was recommended that the next Head Camp abolish the Independent Camp;by having the membership transferred to local camps. The use of the rubber stamp autographs in place of signa- tufes-of officers to official papers was condemned. The publication of the Echo, thu official organ of the order, was ordered to be disconnected from the Head Consul's office; The principal Head officers were instructed to make full financial reports for publication in the ticho on the first of each and every month. That all applications for membership shall be first sent to Head Clerk's office for numbering and registration and the Head Clerk shall forward them to the Head Physician for examination. The resignation of the present Head Physician, P. L. McKinnle, was demnded, and it was recommended that he have no further connection with that office. A. W. Bastiau was elected editor and manager of .che Echo. —Two Mt. Carroll young men recently got the western fever and trav- elled toward the sitting aun. The Herald gives the following account with the reason for their return: Fred H. Colehour, who had a severe attack of western fever last spring, and in company with W. S. Holman, went to Montana, returned last Friday," by the way of Battle Lake, Minn., where he visited with his uncle, James Colehour. Fred says he had a good situation at Elkhorn, Montana, at $3.50 per day, but added parenthetically that nobody could work in the mill breathing the poison from the ore, and live to t*ny great age, HO he and Holman concluded to come home, while Arthur Preston, who was with the boys, went to the Pacific coast, where he bought a farm and will in the future raise hops Fred says, Elkhorn was & lawless place, no city marshal to keeps,the peace. At one time a justice of the peace settled there, but the cow boj s and mill hands concluded they had no need of his services and Informed him to leave the town, which he did. He said that the cow boys come to town, drink whisky at aft cents a swallow, get fuli and ntie down the atmsts, shoaling iut-o * wUoou and orJur mor* iirinks. *u<t ritiA away mif&m wlttiuut killed while hn was there, but a number of IVIIowa were more or IMS "injured" by being stabbed and pounded. Fred ended by saying Illinois liesitn any State he lias seen and was good enough in tho future for him.' —D. F. Erisman has gone to 1'onn- sylvanla to attend the funeral of his mother. —The ball club which waa to have played here to-day canceled the d ite. There will be no game Thursday, but there may be on Friday. —The Standard Theatre Co, which made a favorable impression here last June, is booked at the Academy of Music for all noxt week. Mr. David ,1. Hamage was here to-day and made tho arrangements. —A large party of mechanics sent out to work on the coal chutes at Nelson came to this city last night to get lodgings. They had difficulty in finding sleeping places last night, so crowded are the boarding houses, but they were provided for this morning. —A few thousand dollars more of stock taken will locate the furniture factory here which Phil. Rhoads is endeavoring to get. Let a furniture factory be started here by all means: one thing brings another. Get one thing started, and our people will get others here. —John A. Baker and Mary E. Brown were married at the residence of the Tiastor of the Christian church, Rev. A. Scott, last evening, at 9:15. Mr. Bilker is a young man who has none into the mercantile business recently in our city, and is a good citizen and business man. Success to him in.his wedded life. —Deputy Sheriff Drake hired one of Reefer's best rigs today and drove a bridal party to Morrison. Ina Harrington, a hired girl, appeared in Justice Alexander's court sometime ago ancTdeclared"that"her~recreant lover, Hurt Crist, had neglected to marry her in time to save her honor. Last spring when the appointed wedding day came around the ceremony could not take place, as Burt bad skipped. A few d.'iya ."go he rRnnpsarcd nTi(i_wnM_ nt once arrested. She ancLhe appeared iu Justice Alexander's court this afternoon. The girl declared she still loved him, although he had broken his promise once, and was willing tf marry_hini and lake the risk of his deserting her again. Burt gets a good salary when he works, and is able to support her. He being willing to marry rather than stand trial, acquiesced, so they were driven to Morrison to get the license and be wedded. Their little child is three weeks old. —City Engineer Ilolbrook has been bothered in . his surveying work for some time by a cast off corner stone,, which he found at the corner ot 3rd street and Avenue A. The stone was an old one, but had the usual marks of being a corner stone. While searching for a mark at that place, his assistants found this stone, and as it, had the marks, supposed it to be the one looked for. Using that as a basis, he made the survey for the Depot street sewer, and it brought the east end of the sewer through a part of Mr. II. S. Street's coal office. He knew that could not be right, so he made measurements from other marks, back to the corner of 3rd street and Avenue A, and found the stone lirst used there to be three feet out of the way. On digging down to the place where the new lines intersected the proper corner stone was fouhff. TThe other ~was one which had been carelessly left where It was found. The sewer is now located in its proper place. —Aurora Express:—Nearly all the cities in the vicinity of Aurora are receiving propositions from rapid transit companies who desire to put in an electric street railway. Joliet Is considering such a proposition; so Is Rockford. In Elgin, the "Elgin Rapid Transit company," with rare consideration, are advertising that they are about to ask the city council for a franchise. In Ottawa, not only has such a proposition been made, but an electric railway is"an«ctual fact, having been in successful operation-for several weeks, much to the delight of the citizens of that newly awakened place, and the admiration of thousands who visit Ottawa, some of them from a distance, to observe the workings of the new system. In view of these facts, it would not be strange if some company made an effort to establish an electric line in Aurora. The probabilities are, however, that an outside company would not be given a franchise, if only the present street railway company show a disposition to keep abreast of the times and improve their system. This will have to be done, or Aurora will hav^to follow In the footsteps of Elgin and Ottawa. The present company, however, have been contemplating a change,, for over a year and have done much corresponding to that end, but as yet have not accomplished anything visible to an outsider. Some members of the company have been adverse to putting in an electric system with overhead connections, on account of the great numbers of poles which it would be necessary to ;set in thejstreeta. They consider underground connections and storage batteries as impracticable. They would prefer a power operating from within ft car, and have one or two things in view, aud especially lean towards a uaphtha engine, explosions of naphtha being the pcwer. -s-Charlea Cass and family have removed bark to Hock Falls. -f-Tho Young Ladies Foreign MisR- lonary Society of the M.
