What's the matter with buying all the property between their tracks and the C. & N. W. tracks, west of Locust street, and laying more tracks. Freight business is going to increase in Sterling instead of diminish. —Sterling la the largest city of the 7th Congressional District of Illinois, and is the chief center of trade for a distance of thirty miles In every direo tion. Sterling merchants sell cheaper have larger and better stocks of goods and here there is more competition than In any city for even fifty miles.

This list the hostess uses without change, and the guests, while knowing that the hostess did not make the selection, are not allowed to learn who did.

When fixed over, they will make an excellent warehouse.
