Miller. —To-night at the 4th street M. E church F. E. Andrews and Dr. Felker will speak In regard to "l j rayers for the Nations." —The rye fields are still covered with snow; so that thg thawing and freezing of the past few days has not affected it injuriously. —Most of the Protestant churches will continue their evening services, which have been conducted through this week, throughout next week. —The committee on the school exposition of Whiteside county, has beep around soliciting premiums to be of- 'ered as prizes to contestants at the exposition in April next. —There was a change in the weather ast night, and the thermometer drop ped down agreeably to the promise of rhe weather bureau, say, somewhere about 8 to 12 degrees above zero. —How about John Dillon V IB he to come or not to c 'me V And if not to some what is the matter with John? there was some disappointment among admirers of Dillon over his non-appearance. r \ _—AlL-through this region the pro- ess of dehorning . cattle is going on and the hornless cow is the neat's foot animal of the future.

This paper will endeavor .0 merit favor by honest, faithful work.. rVe should be callous indeed if our ieart did not quicken at expressions of ;ind words from true friends. —It is suggested to us that when our am is built, thera will be excellent avigatton between here and Dixon. Vhen that time comes, as soon it will, ur brother Shaw can join us in sailing he raging main and learn with us the mystic craft of a seaman. Steam- oats may freely ply between and com- etition be so active that editors; at east, can. ride dead head. —There is considerable flutter of leasurable excitement among many oung ladies and gentlemen of Sterling ver the approaching leap year party to e held in Masonic Temple next Monay night. The novelty of its being otten up and managed entirely by thi air sex, and that they are to be the es- orts and entertainers but add to the ntereat of the coming occasion. —The Q. morning train in from Rock aland still keeps up a good passenger ratJBc. There were some, who feared hat the good business shown'at first ould only keep up BO long as the nov- Ity continued; but, people have learn- d the advantage of dealing here, and hey like to come here. It is probable nd moat likely that the traffic will ontlnue to get better and better. < —This year there are to be elected in his county a State's attorney, superin- tindent of schools and circuit clerk, besides these, there ~are to be elected n general election, a president, vice resident, governor, lieutenant govern- r. secretary of State, State treasurer, tate auditor and attorney general. All f these are to be elected on the first 'hursday in November. This Is in re- ponse to a query. An election also akea place for supreme court judge in one. . —The Telegraph thinks we were in- .erferlug with the lawyers' prerogative •hen we objected to a mass conven- on to nominate a judge. Not a bit fit; our objection grew out of the act that we thought there might be oo much railroad and too little law- er in the business. But we have one with the judge questiqh, Bro. haw. The postponement appears to ave taken the matter out of.the hands f lawyers, editors, railroads and every- ody else except the politicians. —There will be a conference of National Prohibitionists about the 4th f February, to last two days, somewhere in Whitesite county; that is to ay, either at Morrison or Sterling. Jembers of the party here are seeking to have it located at Sterling. The members at Sterling are anxious to ave It here because Sterling is the xmvenient point of the county for the greatest number, and they alao are im- iued with the praiseworthy motive of jenefltting their city by bringing people here from the various portions of he county and State, realizing that ny gathering brought to Sterling eaves money here. They likewise feel hat tt ere would be better show of hav- ng larger attendance because of the reater population of our city many of whom doubtleaa will turn out to hear what la Wild. —Bock Hivcr Lodge, No. -612,--An oient Free and Accepted Masons, in stalled officers for the ensuing year a their regular communication las evening, as follows: V.

Its natural advantages and its superior location persuaded us aa early as January, 1873, when passing through here on a visit, that it had a uture bright and promising. On that single trip we passed through seventeen States, with eyes op&n, looking for a location. In all our journey we never saw.a place that seemed to ua to com bine ao many natural advantages, and when we came here in November, 1870, t was with implicit confidence that it would demand only reasonable time 'or it to take its place among cities of 20,000 or upward. It is settled by people who are thrifty and enterprising- t only needed -time for them to got ahead in money matters in order to ombine to the common good. " The .am is but the beginning of good hings; that will be followed by hosts f other blessings. In all the hours ince 1870, whether business was active T depressed, we saw by prevision the days of prosperity, and when a friend idiculed some prediction of ours as to uture prosperity, we smiled inwardly, and paid to ouraelf, "Friend, you are oo near-sighted." Given climate, soil, iverand a big water tall (two in our ase) and enterprising people and pros- >erity ia certain. It doea not demand ift of prophecy to know this; it is only needful to look about and compare and eaaon. 'Rah for Sterling. That dam money will be raised, the dam ue built, nd the Spring will open with the work pon that dam. —He came into our office this morn- ng chewing vigorously and about the rst words he said were, "Where'syour pittoon?" Being accommodated, he rew a chair close by us and began con dentially; "Did you ever swear off on he 1st of January ? No ? Well there was lots of fun in it, at first. I felt as ig a man as Blalne or Cleveland Sun- ay morning when I went to church, ot having tasted tobacco since I had ot up. Through the sermon, I kept aying to myself, I don't need to go to hurch; a man who can leave off tobac- o after using it for-twenty years, can et along without saying his prayers or stenlng to.sermons, I got along pret- y well until I had, eaten my dinner when I ran my hand down in my pock- t and found no tobacco there and I wanted it worst kind. Towards night got nervous and took a long walk; idn't eat any supper because I knew le appetite would be stronger on a full tomach. I managed to sleep fairly ell that night, but, bless your heart, I eedn't go through every hour of the ime. The next day I began to grow roas at my place of business and at ome, too. Monday night I slept but ttle; Tuesday night hardly'closed my yes and kept wife awake with myroll- ng and tossing. Wednesday I was ear to getting Into two ; fights down own because of my nervoua depression nd there waa no living at home for me. Thursday night I had "sasaea" em around home so much that just be- ore going to bed, my wife, who isn't a it sarcastic, but just the best and qui- test woman going, said, there are some hings In the world worse than amok- ng and chewing. I held out until yes- rday afternoon; fact, truly. But af- er dinner my nerve gave out ai,d I had rgued myaelf into the position that If had stood the poison a score of years 'd as well risk it a little longer, and so n sheer desperation, I plunged Into a igar store and bought a good supply f smoking and chewing goods. The ellow waiting on me didn't know how ear he was to getting a blow right be- ween the eyes for being so slow in waiting on me, although he did observe how I snapped out 'No, when he aaked if he should wrap them up. I almost jerked out two teeth in biting >ff a chew; and let me tell you this, 1 may get to heaven; but if I do, I know '11 never be as happy as 1 waa for the next ten minutes. And much as I suf- 'ered while not using it, I declare I was 'ully repaid In the extra and added >leaaure I've experlnnced ever since, the old lady waa never before rtcou- lied to my UBlDg it, but she'd «ays she rather I'd use a pouud a day than stop t again."

Michael Strogoff has .a record un- qualed by any similar play known In .ramatic history. No dram a was ever o universally endorsed in so many dif- ereut countries. It was originally pro- uced in the French language at the "heater du Chatelet, Paris, and ran here continuously for 700 performances,—nearly two years. In the meantime a translation of the great lay was made into the English language, and this was produced at the amoua Adelphi Theater, London. Here it, ran steadily for nearly one ear. Theft the late Samuel Colvllle. . H. IIave*JjL.«nd Eugene Tompkins bought the Englisk version for America. Colville made money with it and io did Haverly. Recognizing the great itrength of the play, the strong hold it md upon the masses of the people, and the great possibilities for spectacular display, Mr. Charles L. Andrews purchased the piece and all Its American rights. It will thus be seen that Manager Andrews has the original and ouly authorized version of this truly Brand RuaaUn drama.
