In the first place, covering the gromid in eon- siderable quantities, it tends to keep steady the weather; at the same time it fcwps warm the soil beneath. When the snow has fallen early and it covers the ground until Spring there is almost sure to be a good crop of small grain, winter sown. Not that, only; it preserves the soil from the attacks of alternations of freeze and thaw; the snow itself is a fertilizer and It likewise attracts and holds large amounts of fertilizing foreign substances, which with the enow enters earth at the first bre&k-up; thus proving of value to the entire crops of the coming year. Thus we have it that snow keeps the weather steady and at the same time proves valuable in that it enables people to travel with greater comfort and enables farmers to more easily haul their produce to market, while finally it serves to mellow the earth, protects the winter sown grain and finally assists the com and oat crops put in the ground later. No man, therefore, should regard an w with disfavor. It may sometimes bring discomfort to one on foot; or it may cause the wood and coal to disappear a trifle more rapidly, but the benefits are infinitely beyond what is comm nly supposed. "EACH MAN'S back is lit tod to the burden he has to bear." We once heard an itinerant preacher say it was an Infl- rlte puzzle to him how the late Mr. Beecher could for so many years preach three or four times a week, and that without repeating himself. He added, that he being removed from one point to another every year, could repeat his sermons. As a fact, Mr. Beecher found no more trouble in meeting his duties than did the itinerant. Put any man Of average intelligence in the Presidential chair without previous warning, and for a week or two Ms novel post tion would somewhat disturb him; but he'd soon, settle down to business, and unless some extraordinary emergency arose he would till the bill with fair ability and without much difficulty. Men grow into their surroundings. CorraldBrUSfBeld as a canaKboalfboy; Lincoln as a rail-mauler, Grant as a tanner's clerk, Johnson as a tailor's apprentice; what infinite distance between thalr former and their final positions. Yet each one grew into his life unconsciously, and their humbler days were but vague memories. Joan of Arc sat firmly upon her horse and led her country's armies to victory within a week of being a maid at a wayside inn. Napoleon began aa corporal and ended as emperor; moat of his marshals had humbler beginnings. As a fact, there is not so much difference between greatness and average Intelligence. It la opportunity and condition that tell the story. "Don't see how you can do this," or "it is a miracle that you can do that", ia what one hears upon every hand. Yet if the surprised on^were to settle down to the same task honestly, he could soon work into it himself.

The Chicago Levpr, of Dtcflm- ber 2ct.h, contains aa article signed Templsr, and written from SfprHriR, containing a tissue of assertions to the Millet that under license things are go- to the awfully awful oad here. Now the editor of this paper publishes all cases of fights, arrests for drunkenness, etc., that occur here at yterllng, and it leaven it to the fairness of its readers to say whether our place is »o awfully disturbed or if it is not true thst Sterling will compare favorably in morals with any town of corresponding aize. Marshal Fitzgerald is a man who voted the local prohibition ticket here and is known to be in full sympathy with teetotalism; every prohibitionist at Sterling has confidence in him, and ho was appointed as well because of his temperance views as for being thoroughly qualified for the office. There is not a man at Sterling but will give him credit for rightly enforcing the laws. He was requested by the editor of the GAZETTE to report all misdemeanors, crimes, etc. He has done so and they have all been published. Now this man signing himself "Templar" charges that under license that there has been one or more suicides from drink; one or two more gone out trom grogshops drank and been killed by cars; he charges murder of a man at the lockup. The editor of the GAZETTE knows not one whit aa to the truth of any of these allegations. If "Templar" knew of a murder, he should have furnished his facts to the proper officers. The State's Attorney, who certainly has the confidence of the prohibitionists, or ought to have, as he is a teetotaler and a man whose whole Influence is lent to order, and whose life is perfectly correct, made the most diligent search into the case referred to,and there was not a scintilla of testimony furnished going to show that any crime had been committed. We know that tte State's attorney had an autopsy ordered; that he engaged a special short hand reporter and that he diligently invited any and all testimony. It is strange that "Templar" with ais intricate knowledge of the facts in the case, absented himself from the examination. What was his motive in keeping silent about it for two years, and then pouring forth knowledge in a partisan , newspaper? the last case, which is the only one under Marshal FltzgeraMa__adminl3.- tration referred to by Templar, is utterly untrue. He says that a minor was found drunk in a saloon; taken to a lockup by two officers and beaten there; that scared, the officers promised to let him off, if he would not prosecute them; that the boy was nominally fined; the saloon-keeper was not fined for selling the liquor to tho minor. The facts are the minor was not in the saloon at all; he was arrested on the street for resisting an officer; he was not promised immunity; he was fined and paldhlsflne.totheamountof810 and costs, equal in all to more than 814. He is not a baby, but a man- sized youth. He said he did not get his liquor in a saloon, but from a man not in the liquor business and not a resident of Sterling, and this offender was arrested and is now serving a sentence of sixty days in the county jail for giving liquor to the minor named above. Perhaps we dignity "Templar' 1 too greatly by noticing his assaults upon bis own city. Like many, men who forget their duty of Btmding by their home, but take pride and pleasure in abusing it before strangers, in his zeal to make it appear very, very bad, and of sufficient Importance to find place in a metropolitan paper, he grossly misrepresents facts, aa we have shown. The GAZETTE takes no sides in local quarrels and will not have any discussion over the vexed questions of RIFLES OF THE FUTURE. EUROPEAN COUNTRIES ALL ENGAGED IN REDUCING THE CALIBER. Th« Adnintnjrtti ot * Smaller SJ*c«i Jfni- lot—-Germany'!! Slanter «nd th« French l—Anatrla'i N«w Bepe«t«>r—Other Two fixtures in infantry rifles ara now absorblnj; attention la all parts of tho world, tho caliber nml the repeating apparatus. France, Germany, Austria, England, Hnllniid and Italy ere all en- gftffed In reducing the caliber, and here in oar own country Gen. Benot Bays, in a re- csnt report, that "the question of a reduced caliber for small arms IB now tinder consideration by the department"—a statement which speaks volumes. With a smaller caliber aro joined a Bteol cased bullet and a compressed powder, or else far more powerful powder, which gives greater range and penetration, ,while many additional cartridges of tho the smaller size can obviously bo carried ty the Boldler. Thla last advantage la the tooro Important, since the tendency to fire too rapidly is increased by the repcat- jlng arms. I Germany, In order to snpply her army With magazine guns ahead of France, kept her factories at Erfurth, Spandan and Dantzic working day and night; and now that she has completed the arming of her troops at large cost, she is to begin all over again with a new small bore rifle, because' the French have a small bore. ?The present German repeating arm, which may do for tho reserve and militia, la the Manser of sixteen yeara ago, refurnished jwlth a magazine of eight cartridges, pushed by a spring into the barrel. CoL Arbuthnot, superintendent of the Enfleld factory, considers It the worst repeater he has seen. It is certainly both heavy and 111 balanced, although it has the advantage that & simple movement turns it to a single loader, and it requires no new manual of drill. But it is doomed before It has been really used, because a bettor gun is found In France. The calibor of |the new German rifle Is to be eight mllll- jmetera, which is only .815 Inch, while that of the Manser is eloven millimeters, lor .433 inch. I THE LEBEL BffLE. I The Lebel rifle, adopted by France, ia of only .807 Inch caliber, and carriea eight cartridges in a magazine under tho barrel. Its sharp pointed steel bullet, about the size of a pea, driven at a won- dertnl velocity by a new smokeless powder, baa great range and accuracy. The soldier can carry nearly twice aa many of Its small cartridges as of th« old style. The trajectory is almost flat for ranges customary, with a consequent gain in precision; the recoil Is scarcely perceptible, and even the noise of the report. Is trifling. The French Pralon rifle la another remarkable small bore, of .815 ballber. Italy has a small caliber rifle nndor'aon- bideratiori in the Invention of Capt. Fred dl. r>EPA7rrrnra Mr. C. C.

It takes ien (cartridges, introduced from je. cardboiird pox, and can also be used as a single loader. It would cost less than the Eog- lish Martini-Henry. But England, out of we large number of magazine guns open po her, is trying by preference the Improved Lee and the Leo-Burton. The Jiee, ao favorably known in the United States, has a detachable magazine, and fchlfl is preferred by some experts; but tihe British apparently decide in favor of hnv- ing the hopper fixed, lest the movable one ahonld b« dropped In tho heat of action. ^They follow the movement for small calibers by fixing on a .81 bore, whatever the selection of the magazine rifle system, ffhe large charge of compressed powder md long'bullet will secure high velocity, Bat trajectory and accuracy of shooting. 3reut Britain bos had an experience something like Germany's, since she had Just Introduced the new Enfleld-Martinl .40 :allber as an improvement on her Martini- Henry, which has a .45 bore, like onr Springfield. Over 100,000 have been competed, with new aword bayonets, but the small caliber will supersede them.

The Kropatschek has for yeara 'been nsed as a repeater in the French oiavy; but for her land forces France had [made modifications rather of the Gras Tifle, on. the system of Lee, Robin, Flcord ; and others, prior to her selection of the Lebel, The Plcard seems little affected by tho presence of dust or sand.
