GALL AND SEE. —Died at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Van Wilson, in the town of Waldwick Iowa county, Wisconsin, on Friday e vening.Dec. 80th, 1887, of pneumonia, Mr. A7 D. Mclemore, aged sixty-seven years. Should any of his relatives wish for particulars by mail they will be given by addressing E. II. Shlpman, Waldwick, Iowa Co., Wisconsin. —Are you a citizen of Sterling 1 or Rock Falls ? Do you own a farm within [six mllea of either city? Do you wish for the future' growth and prosperity of these cities? Do you not believe that improved water power will attract manufacturers to this point and thus Increase the population and wealth of these places '( How much would you give to have it so? Have you subscribed to the New Dam ? —Following is the list of ^officers of Corinthian Lodge, Knights of Pythias installed last night:. Frank Cubit, C. p.;L. G. Spies, C.; Dr. C. C. Edson V. C.; Frank Tumbleson, P.;J. W. R. Stambaugh, M. of P.; rf. M. Seely, K. of R. & S.; E. E. Breneman, M. of F.; Walter Campbell, M. of (X; C. H. Seloff, I. G.; Frank Newell, O. G. The lodge is in most flourishing condition; the attendance is large and n«w members are constantly joining. —It Is settled that an election for judge will not be called until April anjway, and possibly not until June; at least we are so informed by a most reliable—party. The- proposition to postpone originated at Springfield and the upper counties, including Caaroll have acquiesced in it. They can afford It, not having been without a judge. If it is called for April, it is probable there will be no politics in it; if until June, it is probable that it will be a straightout political contest. —Married, Jan. 2, 1888, at Akron, Ind., Mr. John Clifton to Miss Rose Bailey. The contracting parties are highly respected at Akron and have come to make their home in Sterling. They were given a reception at the Wallace House last evening by Messrs. Sam McKee and Arthur King. Among those present were a large number of friends from Sterling and a number of transient guests of the house. The Keystone band rendered some very fine music and were given an oyster supper and a very enjoyable time was had by all. —Cities are but modern manifestations of patriarchal settlements, and are just as truly bound together by common interests. They are Vnit together as'closely wellnigh-in financial interest as a family. This being true, it follows that every man and woman at Sterling should not expend a dollar away from home that can be expended hbre among our own people. It matters not what it is: whether it is dry goods, or groceries, or boots or shoes, or hats, or furniture, or millinery, or printing; go to your home people to buy. If one had a son or father in business, he would certainly buy buch goods aa that near relative kept in stock. In tha sense that a community is a large family, and- this is undeniably true, It follows that our home people should trade here at home. And we are bold to declare that one can do better at home than he can do away from home. Goods here are as represented; no advantage is taken; no clap-trap catches are thrown out to make cue buy what he don't want, aud nually, there is no railroad fart) or hotel bill to pay, u wheu one gom to —There are rumors and rumors in regard to railroad station agents' removal on the Northwestern road. Of course many of these are exaggerations. It has long ceased to be a reproach to any man that he has been "fired" by a railroad corporation. Potter since his taking charge of the Union Pacific has made some 200 removals of men occupying important positions, and replaced them with friends of his own, mostly taken from the Q. This by way of explanation; a new man is in charge of the freight department of the Northwestern and ho has his friends, aa well as Mr. Potter and other railroad magnates. It is rumored that he says he wants an infusion of young blood and that he U after the scalps of the older station agents. We have been told that several of the oldest and best known agents In this State are to be decapitated; in fact the work has already been begun, the agent at Aurora having got his dismissal • and it is said that three or four others will get theirs today. Mr. Rogers, our agent here, tendered his resignation some days ago, before their was any chance to tell him after thirty four years of ardous service for the company that his place was wanted for somebody else, who, it might be, had his chief claim in being the friend of the man who decapitates. A petition is being circulated here in the interest of ComluctorBiglow, asking that he be Mr. Roger's successor. It has been told us that a Mr. Fowler, now agent at Geneva, is to be transferred here. Of course, it is a delicate matter to criti- cise the management of any organization; because, under the 'law and by common consent, each business enterprises has a right to discharge its em- ployes when it pleases: but this we can say: The fact that railroad men know they have no hold upon their companies and that they are liable to be thrown out all in a moment, and that though they are so fortunate as to keep their places until old age begins to come that then at least they will be remorselessly turned out to grass, certainly does not tend to incitement to renewed and extra exertion. How can men do their best when they know tha f . faithful service is mo^t frequently rewarded by dismissal V —It is now patent that the Governor will not call an election for judge until Juno. As this suggestion emanated from Springfield, and as the Freeport Journal and seme other papers openly insist that only a Republican shall be elected it is manifest that the delay is the result of a set purpose to bring politics into play. The editor of thia paper is a Republican and never voted any other ticket in his life, and he believes in political parties; but an office BO near the people as judge, and one in which all persons without reference to party must go for justice, it is deeply to be regretted that even the candidate for the office must be filled by the truckling and trickery methods of politics. We knew Governor Oglesby was not led to delay the election because of economy; it is now patent that it is done in the interests of party ism,—possibly to be used as a booster for Oglesby's Vice Presidential chances. We wash our hands of the whole business if it is to be delayed until June; for it is clear to a blind man, even, that It is "drawing the party lines," a conscienceless scramble, and a most acci- dential chance of getting a good man. And for the further reason that for years and years it has been the custom here to elect our judges upon merit without reference to partyiam. Herein we are consistent; we took that position in 1877, when vacancy was filled; in 1879,| and again in lb85; ana in every case the people were with ua in the matter, too. collective effort ia pnblic enterprise- public spirit. So inspirited by what individuals have done, individuals mass together and collective effort is the result. We say, the dam is an assurance; that it will come And why? Because, right here in Sterling live men and many of them, who began without -a dollar and are independent. A number of these men banded together are invincible. Is all the money raised for the dam ? No. Men who work hard and earn what they possess are not quick to part with what they have; if they were, they would have nothing. But they have good sense to periceve what Is to their interest, or they would have nothing. This is clear. Seeing that individual interest has done so much and that collective interest can do infinitely more, they will and must know the dam a necessity to Sterling's rapid growth and they will build that dura. Don't you forget that! They know what is in them. They are not in a great, big hurry, to invest; their money don't grow on trees, from which they can pluck the the almighty dollar at all- They know the value of money; hence they are careful. Nevertheless they know theft strength; they understand the possibilities and the probabilities of the future. The GAZETTE, therefore., predicts boldly; "The money .will be subscribed and that upper dam will be built."

SKATES! SKATES! —It was perfectly natural and in keeping with man's natural impulses for Nebuchadnezzar to say. "Is not this mighty Babylon which I have bullded." It was not for the sin of saying that chat he was so punished as that he was constrained to eat straw like an ox; but it was because of his rejection of Qod and his refusal to confess his power and majesty and providence that he was driven from among men. Man is conscious of his strength and he does know what he has done. Genius is absolutely conscious of what it has effected for the use of man. Did not Cmsar feel what glory he had brought to Rome when Anthony pressed him to accept Ihe kingly power?. Did not the graceful Horace feel the influences of- his rhymthio pen upon his countrymen. There is, and there must be self con- consciousness. The good mechanic knows his superiority over inferior men; the successful farmer knows his knowledge is greater than his improvident neighbor. Great men are usually deemed vain; they are not vain; they merely know their power. And now for the application: Sterling has reached a point where she feels her superiority over average places of her size There is no vanity here; there is no putting on of airs. It is simply assurance of what is within. A man knows whether be is black.or white, red or yellow. Just aa surely is he persuaded whether he knows more or less than his neighbors around him. As with an individual, so with a community. Now and|then, at intervals, do we observe a subdued smile and sneer from a neighboring contemporary at Sterling because it talks of big projects.—as sewerage, street railroad, upper dam, etc. There is nothing worthy of remark in this. It ia merely self-conscious strength, the knowledge of which comes of victories already won. Our people reflect upon the fact that we have many wealthy people and decidedly many people in easy circumstances. They say: All that ia here of wealth cornea of trie efforts of our people. And uot only that, but of Individual effort. If Indl- Akron Granulated Corn Meal at Turn- Meson's. 70 - Dr. I. Rader, of Fulton, Kan;, says: "I have been practicing medicine for 47 years.
