If she i.i, it is time this mysf-rTy was Qen. IT.Tivler says ho would rnther be a TJnitod 8tatfs senntor th.iri vice president. No wonder. Compared to the awful pocinl rrvnk of a senator in Washington the dignity of a vice president la nowhere. Undoubtedly Texas is a great state. She can produce annually cotton enough to supply the world, she, raises one-sixth of all the c.'sttle produced west of the Mississippi river, and she ia also said to iraJBO . Cixnn considerably. Besides all these she will not permit a silk hat to be worn within her borders. Within the past quarter century the Protestant Episcopal church has grown to America as nt no previous period in ita history. It is mentioned as a curious fact that as the taste of the American people for artistic decoration and aesthetic ceremonials has been awakened and in- ionKiScd the Episcopal church has increased proportionally. THE OVERLAWD MONTHLY for October, Is an unusually interesting number. The opening article, an account of the attack on the white settlements at the Cascades in Oregon, by the Y a- kima Indians, in 1853, is based upon the reports of survivors of the fight. The other illustrated article, ia an account of the recent development of electrical science; Mr. Brocfe shows that the near approach of the time when the coal supply of the world shall be evhausted, renders the search for a anbatitute imperative,"" Ho then des this direction, and its possiblo extension in the f nture The death of ex- Judge Terry, renders Col. E. G. Waite's estimate of his life and character peculiarly timely. Some new light'is thrown Upon certain features of Terry's public career, and the estimate of bis inlluence in this SUte will be read with interest The poetry, editorials, and book reviews of this number, maintain the standard of the Overland. —The Frankie Jones Co. presented "Disowned" at the Academy of«Music last night in a first class manner, to a fair sized audience. The scenery and costumes were elegant and the actors were, without exception, fully equal to all demands of the play. Master Frankie Jones, aa the boy hero, pleased all by his graceful manners and clear enunciation.- Mr.-Ed.-Gardner,'- as the - old tanner, was about perfect; aa was Mr. Walter Lawrence in his performance of a cold blooded villian. Mr. Lawrence was with Qeo. C. Miln in "Haunted." The other members were all entirely satisfactory, but the great bit of the evening was made by the "Baby"— a sweet little child of two and a^ half years, who not only knew his lines but •poke them lii the proper way at tha right place. The five minutes taken up by little Willie and Master Jones were alone worth tha price of admission. A large number of ladies stayed to kiss the "baby" after the show, and voted Mm "too sweet for anything." Tonight the company will present "The Sea Waif," in which the great tank containing several thousand gallons of water is used, with boats, real rain.and handsome scenery;— As the play last night gave such universal satisfaction we predict an increased attendance this evening. "Disowned" will be repeated at the matinee tomorrow afternoon. • ' Idst of Patents. Granted to citizens of Illinois for the week ending Oct. 1st reported through the law office of O. E.

There hna bean more progression, more modern improvements, more work, morn prosperity. The people have wakened up to the fact that Sterling and Hock Falls can be made one of the best cities in the state and have started out to make it so. ' Permanent improvements necessary an a basis for every largo city, have been inaugurated A complete sys- em of sewerage has been begun; much work has been done in making permanent streets, and steps are being taken toward a complete system of permanent sidewalks. Sterling already has good soil aud healthful loca- iton, good schools, good local government, good churches and places of amusement, Qne waterworks and other conveniences for homes. During this year an electric light plant is being put in which will light up every part of the city; a very modern electric street railway (seven miles) is being built, with branches runnii g to every part of town. With all the advantages Sterling already has as a place of residence for progressive people, the improvements under way this year, will make this city one of the most desirable places of residence in the west. Sterling is getting all the conveniences of a large city; what she needs now is the rapid growth. New factor- 'BS will make the growth. This city and Kock Falls oiler exceptional advantages to manufacturers as regard to sites,' shipping facilities (over the two chief railroads of the country, the Chicago & Northwestern and the Chi- cage. Burlington & Quincy) and a place of residence and also on account of freedom from strikes, which are so numerous in large" cities. With our water power improved, Sterling will soon become the chief manufacturing city of the State, outside of Chicago. If our own citizens will show as much interest in Sterling as outside corporations have, our growth will-be very rapid. The Northwestern rail- ger depot hero, and spent ftbont one hundred thousand Collars- in making its yard at Sterling the finest on the road. Howland & Ellis, of Boston, are spending about fifty thousand dollars In building here the finest electric railway in the west. If our citizens make a united effort to get factories here, no doubt the railroads and the street railway .company-will assist all in their power. While we are seeking new manufactories, we must not overlook the industries we haye now, which are nearly fifty in number. Nearly all the factories have had to increase their number of workmen during the past year and ttie majority of them will have to enlarge their quarters during the next year. This will give employment to many _rnore__men,__and -increase ...the growth of the city very materially. To show that the people ofSterlingand Hock Falls have not been idle during the past year, we give below a list of the improvements that have been wrought, or are in process of construction: IN STERLING.

In October, 1S-S, the ont- .ook for the future year vnis not very Bright, but it is turning out to be the aost year in Sterling's history. There 13 n much brighter outlook for THE YEAH ISl'O. For next year it la ex; ected that itbout fifty thousand dollars worth of sewerage will be put in; that a Sr.0,000 Rovcrnment building will be built here, (the final passage of the bill by the House of Representatives being all that is required to insure it); that the Keystone Mfg. Co., Sterling Mf'g Co. and the Eurek'i Co., will greatly enlarge their present plants and employ a hun- Ired or so more men; that a new factory building will be^irected in Sterling; that a -?5,000 solder's monument will bo erected; that the canning factory will be doubled in size; that a half dozen frame rookeries will be replaced by handsome brick stores; that the First warders will erect a $15,000 school house; that a new boarding house will be erected, plans for which are already drawn; tliat a hundred or more tasty residences will be put up; that several more streets will be macadamized; that ten miles of permanent sidewalks will be built; Luat a big fair will be held; that 2,000 more population will be gained; and that Sterling will be made the county seat. "Where there's a will, there's a way;" these things can be done if the people will it so. In view of all these things, let our citizens work unitedly, unceasingly and and untireing'y to place Sterling in the front rank of the manufacturing cities of Illinois and the west. The city has made a magnificent start forward, now let every effort de made to keep the tiwn booming. - 7 KOCH.
