Pitte, a student at the Business College has secured a position as stenographer in the B. C & N. road office at Cedar Rapids. —Yesterday's alouchy day caused a disappearance of all the last fallen snow and of some that had previously fallen. Still, the sleighing holds good. —Mr. and Mrs. Osaar V. Emmert, of Nachusa, Illst, are the guests of their uncle, U. B. Sanders. They are receiving the congratulations of their Sterling friends as they are on their wedding tour. . — Mr. Eugene Scales has been appointed assistant treasurer of the Citizens' Association. Mr. Heal, the treasurer, having now a through run on the Northwestern and being necessarily absent from the city most of his time. —There will be a grand leap year party in Masonic Temple next Monday night, given by a number of the young society ladies of Sterling. It is exclusively under the auspices of the young ladies and they propose getting up a most enjoyable party. —A sleighing party went out six miles in the country last night to Mr. John Tracey's, about twenty couples In all and enjoyed dancing until a late hour. They were dumped out a few times and had their faces washed in the snow, but they all seemed to enjoy it, and everybody had a good time. —Our Eock Falls neighbors are till busily at .work In effort to , raise money for the upper dam. It is a matter that oncerns our people on both sides directly and immediately and it is with pleasure we record the fact that our neighbors are busily engaged in pushing the measure. • —A special telegram to the editor of She GAZETE, from the American Press association informs us that Baldwin the cashier >of the Fidelity Bank, Cincinnati, died at three o'clock this tnorn- ,ng. And so true is it that transgression brings shame and' shame often' brings death. —Conductor Boynton's train stuck In .a snowbank at Brooklyn yesterday and didn't get to Shabbona until after nine o'clock last night. He reached aere at 1 o'clock this morning bringing with him Sterling freight transferred from tke regular freight train that concluded that Sbabbona was far enough to travel yesterday.. —There will be a meeting of citizens n Lincoln Park school house to-morrow, Friday evening, to consider the upper dam matter, and it is requested that there be a fall meeting of First ward people on that occasion. That portion of our city Is directly and popularly, interested in the project. All citizens of Sterling will be welcome. —Road Master Lehman had a. call after midnight from a tramp, who insisted upon his getting up and giving him a warm meal. Mr. Lehmau did get up prepared to give him something warm but bis trampship disappeared before he got the door open, he evidently thinking there waa too great warmth in Mr. Lehman's manner, as Indicated by his voice. ^ —The dancing school occurred this atternoon at Masonic Opera House, and the evening session will occur as usual at 7:45. On this occasion Mr. Sweet intends giving the minuet quadrille, one of the very prettiest dances, but which cannot be lei med without Instructors. A full attendance of ladiea and gentlemen are assured for the evening class. —The report of the Second ward school class '88 shows an unusual number of rainy days for December. And the new year opens up in the same fashion. Considering that quite a number of timid folks considered that tile draining and other causes had driven.moisture out of our air, and at the same time that these many days of cloud brought much wetness, we may safely infer that old Wuiteslde and Illinois are In no immediate danger of running dry. —We want that dam; the people on the outside expect us to build It; we expect to build it. It must be built. Suppose you can't give $28; then you can give 810; and we know there is not » man in town but will be teneQtted that much. Of course there are some who can give a great many ten dollars, and they ought to do it. Now U the time to covor herself with glory. Of course ah« wilt do it. Let the work go on »sptdij mi til ever; doilwr \t »nb —The upper dam meeting last nighi, in the Council Rooms waa very well attended. U'hfi committee made partial reports and showed.a considerable sum of money already raised. At aJjourn- irient three rousing cheers were given for the enterprise. Another meeting will be held next Wednesday night at the same place, for the same purpose. In the meantime the committees will continue their praiseworthy work of securing subscriptions. Remember, all of you, good citizens, the Rubicon has been crossed; there can be no turning back.- It has been given out that the upper dam is to be built. Build It and our future is assured beyond any peradventure. It demands but a little earnest, persistent work and the money Is raised. Keep in motion. See everybody and let everybody know that everybody is Interested in the dam. —In Mr. Gait's letter from Paris in to-day's issue, he speaks of the enormous circulation of one of the journals of that city. In justice to American newspapers, the greatest of which (daily) does not have 200,000 subscribers, that In Europe, France as well as other countries, that the larger cities mainly control the newspaper business. Thus a Paris daily is taken all over France. European newspapers d < not run to local and general news like American papers, hence. It is to their capitals that they look for a supply. Cities of 50,000 in France have but one or two newspapers and they most im- pretentious; while in our country newspapers spring up everywhere. They beat us in the circulation of their paper, but we excel them In the number of ours. Take the northern states of this union, and there are more papers taken by there to one that in the greatest newspaper reading country of Europe. Mr. Gait's account of the Pasteur hospital is most interesting indeed and well worthy perusal by all our readers. —If the Rockford Register correctly reports Judge's Bailey and Brown, then are they guilty of a breach of decorum; for it is In exceedingly ill taste for them to seek to bias, in any way, public sentiment in the matter of a successor to Judge Eustace. And we say this who esteem the man of their preference and choice most highly. There Is no attorney in this district with whom we have been longer acquainted iior one with whom we are on more intimate terms of closest friendship, nor one, as all our friends do know, whom we should have Dersonally preferred to have been Judge Eustace's successor, than the man they prefer. And yet we say that even though their preference be our close and war,m friend of many yearp, we assert and maintain that it is uo )art of the business.of judges upon the )ench to criticise the action of the at- lOrneys of this county through a public newspaper and thus openly declare .heir own preference. Esteeming this attorney as we do, we must confess to personal gratification that as eminent urlsts as Judges Hrown and Bailey consider him as possessed of such high qualifications: yet,—considering their positions and their influence, and precedent, it is no part of their duty to seek to control the Oiling of the entire )ench. We say this reluctantly, because of our high esteem for both the Judgep. -The Dixon Bun asserts that we are afraid of incurring the .diaplea- ure of the Sterling dam company be-i cause we refused to pull off, our sleeves, rush down to the dam and try to coerce he officials into putting In a tishway, In the first place, we don't know whether there is a fish way here; in the second >lace, we don't know whether the fish commissioner wants one here. We should make but an ass of ourself if we devoted our time to finding out whether every State official was doing his duty. We aid officials as far as wo can, and particularly when they ask us, in •slating upon enforcement of law; we never run around and poke about and play detective to see whether they are nindlng their business. The editor «f ;he Sun having asserted that he has ;he prodigious courage needful to inform the commissioner and insist upon his duty here at Sterling, he will pardon us. f he at the same time will remind that official that there is a little villagn somewhere on Rock river, the seat of a shoe factory and the place where the Sun is published, which instead of hav- ng a fish way according to law as defined by the Sun, has nothing but an old echute which neither a crocodile, alligator, muskrat or otter could climb up, by much less, a bass, cat or any other fish make its way along. Since the editor of the Sun baa thus a v nounced to our terrified soul that he blessed with all the nineteenth centui courage to work reforms at a distam From home, we can but feel (persuade ihat bis invincible bravery will be su icient to lead him to attend to hi lome fiahway as well. In the rmsntim tie will pardon us for hi careful perusal those words in a bool (which by the way we asaure him i good reading and it will help him won derfully. if he will once in a whil glance at its teachings) full of nobles truths: "Pluck the beam out of thin' own eye before thou wouldst remov the mote from thy brother's eye." —There ought to be a special com mittee appointed to see after boys an> girls who don't go to school It is commonly supposed that all do go because all can go. That position Is about ai absurd as that all are good because all can be good. We have a law which requires that all shall go to school within a given age, for so long time each year. Now we know there are children who dou't goat all. They should be looked after and sent Our taxes for schools are high and public schojla are designed for all. Prevention is tetter thaa cure.

This is good advice and, we jharge nothing for it. Perhaps ou may wish to know how to do o, and it is easy for me to tell yon. The first move to make is to buy 'our goods ot THE GROCERY You will then know that you ar« ;otting them at the lowest possible i{jnre. Those who have traded with us in the past know this well, ,nd we want others to know it. We ara selling just now a first-class At a lower figure than they were iver sold before, and they are go- g off fast. This ia rather a new leparture for us, bu \— always in- «nd to keep up with -o demands «d requirements of < •; customers. n adding this newfr»- "ire we have not neglected, nor dr rro intend to, any other part of our i i-yiness. We are selling groceries of all kinds a LITTLE LOWER Than they can be had elsewhere. We can and do do this, and the why and wherefore of this is that we buy many of our goods directly 'rom first hands thus saving the profit made by the jobber.
