The Mikado wan produced at Dixon last night by tho Freeport Opera Com-, Hia Head Out off, A horrible accident occurred nt Savanna Wednesday evening at about 10:30 o'clock. As usual the C. B. N. train from Chicago stopped at the Milwaukee crossing, and the gentleman who was killed attempted to leave the train at this crossing.

In doing so, it is supposed he was swung under tho wheels of his own train, with the result us above stated. The body was not discovered until about eleven o'clock, when the engineer of the train was bringing his engine back from Ihe passenger station for the round house. At point near the Milwaukee coal sheds und about 400 feet this sido of the second crossing, the body was found, the head completely severed from the body, the lower part of the face cut off, the right hand mutilated and tho left bruised and bleeding. The remains were removed to Hose Houso No. 2.

where they lay this morning. The body is'that of Henry Hays, who lived near Polo. He was on his way to visit relatives at Keota. Iowa, and it was of course necessary that he change cars at Savanna. A few moments after the train started tho brakeman called Savanna, and the man thinking ho was being carried by, attempted to get off, and tho train now being under pretty good headway, he was thrown under the wheels.

The scene of tho horrible affair showed to inspectors this tho man's tongue, fragments of nosh and part of a set of false teeth. ftnvanna Journal, Wanderi ugs of a Freeport Boy.

Prof. Paul of St. John's Sunday School has prepared an elaborate programme for the Christmas exercises to be held at that church Christmas eve. Two Christmas trees will be loaded with presents for the Sunday school scholars. A simple "remedy to keep apples through the winter is to take half a bushel of wheat bran and mix through a barrel of apples.

The bran absorbs tbe moisture or sweat from the apples, and thus prevents their rotting. The remedy is worth trying. Tbe session of the next General As aembly of Illinois will commence on Monday, 9. The vote for State officers will be counted on the 9th or 10th day of that month, when Governor Fiferand other State oulcerb will be declared elected and duly installed. "Mr, W.

H. Tuttlo, of Rock Falls, who is well known as an earnest and enthusiastic Sabbath school worker in Whiteside County, and also lirst-class printer, was granted a license to preach the gospel at the last quarterly conference of the M. E. Church held at Rock Falls." Mr. Tuttlo wan at one time foreman of the JOURNAL office.

This office has turned out more than one minister. The Danville, 111., city council has passed an ordinance requiring merchants starting in business there to subscribe an oath to the effect that they will remain in business one year, tho oath to be accompanied by a bond of $1,000. In the event of failure to comply with this ordinance the person shall be classed as an itinerant, fcnd charged a license fee of $5 a day. The many friends of Hon. John Meyer will be Interested in the following dispatch from Sprlngfleld: "Representative Meyer, of Chicago, no- companled by' Senator McMillan, was in the city to-day.

Mr. Meyer came to learn something of the speakership contest. He was desirous of ascertaining If State officials had settled the question, and if they had not he would continue his canvass. He was Informed that the fetlrlfig officials had no interest in the proceeding. Mr.

Meyer Is in the race, and intends to stay until the Republican catfoui lie claims to have a respectable following, and says he is not running with the Intention of getting a good committee or with the prospect of making showing for the speakerahlp of tlio Thirty-Seventh General Assembly." An exchange states the leap year situation thus: Twelve years must elapse before the interesting event takes plaae again, but it was Just the same 1800 and not in 1000, for that was a leap year, and the year 2000 will be a eap year also. Why this should be is i problem. To explain In detail would oe tiresome 'tasfc, but it rests on the principle that the difference of 11 min- ittes per year exists between actual time and calendar time. Thus a year is computed at days, three years being 365 days long and the fourth year 36G days. In fact the year is 3.G& days 5 hours ami -J5 minutes long, or miuutet short of days.

Twelve years! And by that time some very interesting girls will have become old maids. The situation is a desperate one, girls, and demands desperate Circuit Court- The Sheets vs Baker case went to the jury at 2 o'clock this afternoon. The Garvey- Watson breach of promise suit will come up later in the term. Judge Cartwrlght will adjourn court to-morrow until Jauuary7th, 1889. The case of John Wlesman vs the Commissioners of Highway of Rock Run Township, is now on trial.

John Pftuke, Joseph Bricker and Laud Mitchell are the commissioners. Mr. Neisman claims that on tho third day of May last ho was driving along the road In said township with h'm family, When' Is wagon struck section stone in the road. His horses took fright and ran away with him. He was thrown out and his arm wan fractured in the fall.

He claims that the stone was too high and it was an act of criminal carelessness on ttie part of tho Highway Commissioners and he brings suit against the township for $3,000 damages. He is represented by J. A Grain, and Judge H. C. Hyde repro sents tho Commissioners.

Methodist Semi-Centennial' On the 27th qf this month the Methodists of Beloit will celebrate the semi- centennial of the organization of the Methodist Episcopal church In that city. Tho first society of Methodists in Beloit consisted of five persons, and was organized Dec. 27,1838, by Revs. Leander J. Walker and Nathan Jewett.

Beloit wns at that time a part of Rockford circuit, of which the two above named ministers were pastors. This circuit belonged to tbe Illinois confer ence, as neither the Rock River or Wisconsin conferences had boen organized. All of the circuits in this region were cm the Chicago district, of which the celebrated John Clark was presiding elder. The territory at that time contained In the Chicago district was nearly the same as that which now forms the bounds of tho Rock River conference. There were eleven circuits and stations within this region which now has about Card of Thanks.

The other night one of Sam's neighbors was going homo about 12 o'clock, and he discovered a man standing on the top of a fence waving his hands in a frantic manner, and dressed only in a night gown.

The gentleman was nearly soared to death, as he supposed he was approaching a madman, but on closer examination he.found that the figure dressed in white was nono other than Sam Zimmerman. He spoke to Sam, but received no reply. Then it dawned upon the gentleman that Sam was a somnambulist and was walking in his sleep, and such proved to be tho fact. He succeeded in arousing the midnight wanderer, and Sam lost no time in seeking the seclusion which his bedroom grants. He informed the neighbor the next morning that he had had a.

dream. He thought he was driving herd of jcattle in from the country for Bergman.

Had the night been colder Sam might have frozen to death. Ho proposes to chain himself in bed in the future, as he does not care to take another midnight etroll in his night gown with the thermometer in the neighborhood of zero.

Freeport, Dec. 7,1888. decllw5t. the readers of the JOUHNAL to learn something of tho wanderings of one of the boys of Co. llth 111., I write a few lines.

You remember, Cojnrade Atkins, I enlisted Hi your Company, April 16th, 1861; served until July 30, 1861, then re-inllHled in Co. 46 Sept. 10, '61; was promoted Quarter Master Sergeant Sept. 14, 1861; was discharged at Corinth, May 1862. i then went to Pennsylvania and joined the 45th Penn Sept.

10, was wounded at, Spotsylvaniu Court House. On May 14th, 1864, rejoined tho regiment in front of Petersburg, thence to tho surrender of General Lee, at Appomatix Court House; from there to Washington where I was mustered out; of service July 22,1865. I then went to Lewisburg, union 1 remained until September, 1866, when 1 went to New Bedford, where 1 shipped for a whaling cruise of four, years; we sailed for what is known as tho western grounds in the North Atlantic, where --we captured our first sperm whale, which mndo us 14.0 barrels of oil; after cruising awhile we shaped our course for Fayal, one of the Western Islands, from there to the Cape De Verde Islands, oh the coast of Africa; from there to tho Canary Islands, then to St. Helena, in the South Atlantic; while at this Island, I visited the tomb of Napoleon, which remains the same to-day as the, day 1 which Napoleon was burled. kbpt in order by a Captain 'and 'Sergeant of the French Army.

After leaving St. Helena, we sailed around Cape Horn into the Pacific; here we visited the Island of Juan Fernandez, of Robinson Crusoe fume; I failed ta see his man Friday, or in fact any other human being; we found plenty of goats, also plenty of sweet potatoes, bananas, peaches and other fruit. Leaving this Island we shaped our course for the Arctic Ocean, going through Behrlng Strait on the 10th day of July; we remained in tne Arctics until the 10th day of September; while in the ocean we captured one bow head whale; this is a specie of the right whale, they are tho largest of the whalo kind; the one got made us four hundred barrels of oil, and ten thousand pounds of bone; remember this bone Is all taken out of the mouth, the bone is entirely worthless, while the bone taken from tho mouth is worth $3.50 per pound by wholesale; we made a very narrow escape getting out of the Arctic, as we came near being eaught in the ice. After leaving the Behring Strait we called at Honolulu, Sandwich Islands, for supplies, thence around Cape Horn again, and the Cape of Good Hope into the Mozambique Channel, Indian Ocean. Now, Comrade Atkins, if you ever saw a man sick of any service it was your humble servant about this time, I made up my mind to leave tbe whaling service even I was compelled to do so on a barren sland.

After ciusiug in the Mozambique channel.we called oftbe DomorolslandSjthere are four Islands in group, Comoro, Mayotta, Mohilla, Johanna; they are inhabited by a race of mixed Persians and Arabs; on our arrival at Johanna, I left the ship and entered the service of his Royal lligh- ness Sultan Abdallah, as his private secretary. Here! came very near making a muss of it, as the saying is; the Sultan asked me if 1 knew anything about machinery, and the manufacture of sugar. I replied I did, not knowing at the time that he had any machinery or sugar cane; judge of my surprise when I found he had a full plant of sugar machinery and one thousand acres of splendid sugar cane; here was a dilema; the question was how to put this machinery up in running order. Did you ever know a Yankee to fall when he put his brains to work? I eventually got the machinery in position; it was very amusing to see my shafting; it was running all over the factory, yet 1 kept it going. Now, how to make sugar was the question.

I wont at it, crushed a quantity of cane and went to boiling it; the result was I made enough molasses candy to supply Stephensou County for flfty years. 1 happened to come across a small work on the manufacture of sugar, which I committed to memory. Tho next batch was very fair sugar; I kept on improving, and before the close of the season I made as good a quality of sugar as went into the market. On this island there was only one white man beside 'Englisman by the name of Win. Sunley; he was located on one end of the island and I on the other; we met frequently.

While on the island I learned their language so as to hold a conversation in it. I remained on Johanna two years, then went to Madagascar, where I formed one of a party of thirty to visit Ttmaua- sevo, the capital of the island. We were the first; white men ever allowed to enter the city. We found a beautiful city of about 200,000 inhabitants, entirely surrounded by a stone wall 15 feet high, 4 feet thick, with gates on both sides and ends. It was laid out in perfect squares, the streets were clean an wide.

We remained In the city about three weeks, and were royally entertained by tho queen. It has been governed by a queen ever since it existed; the present sovereign's name is Hamantaka HI. After leaving Madagascar I went to Zanzibar, on tbe east coast of Afrioa; from here went into the interior of Africa as far north as Lake Victoria N'Yassa; this is supposed to be the source of the Nile. Here 1 met the renowned Dr. Livingston.

I remained In his compay some two months, leaving him at Ujiji, on Lake Tanganaka. I then proceeded to the coast, coming out at Mozambique; from there 1 went to Zanzibar agan, then to Mahe, one of the Seychelles; thence to Mausitius, or Isle of France; while there I visited the tombs of Paul and Virginia, at Pamplamoose, eight miles from Port Louis, the principal port of entry on the Island. From MauBitius, I went to Melbourne, Australia, then to Tasmania and New Zealand back to Melbourne, thence to Levuka, one of tho Fiji group in the South Paciuc; from there to Hong Kong. China, then to Yokohama, Japan, hack agaip to Zanzibar, one more trip into Central Africa, then to Cape Town, Cape of Good Hope, then home to America, To appreciate this country as we should, just follow my path, and when you return, if you don't say this is the only country fib to live in oy this earth, I am mistaken. Well, comrade, little did 1 think when I enlisted in old Company llth, I would travel over this universe, but such is the case: we parted 27 years ago and did not meet again until one week ago.

Had I. the would fill the JOURNAL with incidents of my will let yon hear from me again. Yours in F. L. JAMES DUNCAN, Ai Slick as Manion There is another fellow In this vicinity playing conlidence games, who if caught, should be sent to Jollet to join Ed Manion, as quickly as possible.

The Rockford Jieyistcr has this in regard to his tricks: Saturday short, thick-set German put in an appearance at Pecatonica and called upon Chris Hayer, tho brewer. Ho represented that he hadbonght a saloon in Ridott and ordered a wagon load of beer of Hayer. He then asked the brewer lo loan him $2.50. Hayer felt elated over tbo sudden boom in beer. He hadn't been selling much to Rockford for some months and this order from Ridott tickled him so that he not only gave his new found customer the money but took him to John Dlxon who sold him a bill of cigars amounting to 12.50.

The alleged gentleman from Ridott took the cigars with him and Mr. Dixon turned to a new page in his leger and wrote the name of his customer with several extra flourishes. Monday when Hayer reached Ridott with the load of beer he found out that he had been duped, no such man being found, Hayer was mad and so was Dixon when he found out that he had been confldenced. The sharper played a good practical joke on the railroad agent at Ridott. He told the agent that he was a big cattle dealer and was a drove at that place on Sunday and ordered five cars for the shipment.

The cars arrived Monday, but tho cattle or the cattle king did not show up. He probably intended to work the town by his misrepresentations. A Christmas entertainment will be given to the scholars of the Baptist Sunday School at Germania Hall next Wednesday evening, Dec. 26th.

A man or woman who is happily wedded and has brought up a bright and inter- eating family, will not be dlow to pronounce the marriage relation a great success. There are thousands of young men and women, who by reason of their infirmities, ought never to marry, These infirmities come from our schools of time, on account of absence of a proper system of physical culture. They come from Illy ventilated counting rooms and factories, from foul tenements and close parlors. Pale and puny, these young men and women present every phrase of bodily imperfection, clearly proving that the first lesson that should be impressed upon growing youth is the supreme import- tance of healthy bodies. No young woman is handsome unless healthy.

The beauty of health continues to old age. Tho Spartans worshiped the beautiful and useful, and took means to secure them. Bodily perfection was attained by enforced, well appointed exercise. No sickly man or woman was allowed to marry, and all in health were compelled to marry, if they refused they were punished. No one was allowed to marry until full maturity was reached.

The result was that for 500 years the Spartans produced the strongest and bravest men, and the most healthy and beautiful women the world has ever Beacon. For Thirty Days N. B.
