Kumor says that ot.iers will go this week. —The Grand Army and the Sons of Veterans will have a very enjoyable time to-night. The families of the members will be present. •8? —The notice of the Broadway M. E. church did not reach us until this morning; hence its non-appearance in Saturday's issue. Miss Moreland will conduct the exercises through this week. Tomorrow's GAZETTE willjcontain a full account of the installation exercises in G. A. B, hall tonight. Those wishing extra copies to send away, will please leave orders before one o'clock tomorrow afternoon. —Our region isn't solidly and permanently cold long enough to warrant the building of an Ice palace, but our people manage to get a pood deal of solid enjoyment out of the ice and snow in the way of sleighing. —St. Paul has an ice-palace, the only in the United States. Mr. Val Kothschlld kindly sends us a colored lithograph of it The picture is pretty, but we'd rather see the original. It's worth a trip to St. Paul to get a sight of it. "—WKTyet has~6iplalHed the phenomenon of winter coming after December? It is significant that October, which is as far away from December 21 (shortest day) as February, Is really as mild as April usually; yet April does not come in until after the equinox. Our hardest "mows and coldest weather always come after Christmas. —The Woman's.Relief Corps of this city has done a great deal of good since Its, organization. Its" members meet together at regular Intervals and sew; they gather up cast off clothing and repair it; they have entertainments now and then for the raising of money; and they have been able to afford much help to families of soldiers. It ia a noble organization. —Remember the Citizens' meeting Wednesday night. There should be a full turnout on that occasion, and the subscriptions should be then completed. There must be no turning back, once the hand Is to the plow. That dam means material prosperity for the city,—a blessing to all. It is demonstration that our people can combine to the common good. —There was considerable amount of get-up-and-get driving In the First ward yesterday. Of course nobody raced and nobody's horse went faster than an ordinary trot, but there was much passing by one another, and there were many cutters out. Do not understand because this happened in the First ward, that the teams were owned in the First ward; this by no means follows; the other four wards of the city were fully represented. —There Is still considerable talk among railroad men over the changes made and about to be made along the route of the Northwestern road. Men who have lived so long In their respective cities as these station agents have their friends, and many of them, too, who deeply regret the action of the company: There is feeling of insecurity among others, who realize more than ever before that uneasy is the head which wears a railroad cap. —The Telegraph is mistaken- We didn't say we went to Kiralfy's show to see the boy dance; what we said was we did see a boy dance there. We don't always see what we would wish to see While that grown-up boy's presence and .high kicking were unexpected, still, he was there and the only way possible to keep from seeing him was to look another way or shut one's eyes. We saw no particular harm in looking at him and have'nt 'felt bad about it since. " . —Unquestionably, while the upper dam will benefit everybody at Sterling and Bock Falls, It is also true that the First Ward people will reap most direct benefit in the Immediate advance in their real estate. Time brings its changes. Years ago there was war be tween the uptown and downtown folks and words sometimes ran high. Time has done its perfect work. The whole own Is united and "downtown" is as anxious for the upper dam as Is uptown. ~" —Sterling has had fewer fires than any city ot its size we ever heard of. The city In which we were born has lost more buildings by fire in the past thirty years than are now contained in Its entire precincts. Sterling hasn't had a dozen fires iu all that time; but only twtt or three of these entailed any considerable loss. If "moral hazard" have the ralue attached to It by insurance men, then it is highly creditable to tb« people of thi* city that it la •o. —The sons of D. II. Myers out in California sent him some fine oranges, which he received a day or two ago. —Frank Weaver, living east of Sterling, brought In fifteen immense steers this morning and Bold them to Randolph & Seaman. —Ice gatherers are now harvesting a crop east of the bridge. They find it In most excellent condition. It is from 11 to 13 inches thick and very clear nnd firm. —Station Agent Thorne merits the thanks of all our people for his earnest and pains taking effort to secure the Rock Island train. Mr. Thorne is a most accommodating official and anxious at all times to do that which will contribute to the benefit of our city and community. —A former resident of Sterling, who for years was the leading merchant in his line, tuna writes to Geo. W. Cham berlin of this city: "The upper dam, at this time, looks as'if it was an assured success; and it seems to me cannot result in anything other than an advantage to Sterling in general. If the dam stock ia not all subscribed please let me know by return mail what it ia worth, as I would like to subscribe for a few aharea." This is only the first faint echo of the "boom" we are to have the coming season. •—To-night's leap-year party is to be a decided social eveut. The. ladies toilettes will be elegant. Grace church guild will furnish the supper. The young men for once In their lives are to change .places with the ladles and to be escorted to and from the place of entertainment and can have opportunity to decline to dance, even when asked by one of the fair sex. To-rnor. row's GAZETTE will contain a full account of the affair. Those desiring extra copies will please leave their orders before one o'clock to-morrow afternoon. * —Sterling ladles display an immense amount of zeal on behalf of the churches with which they are connected. Every church has an organization of some kind within it membership composed of female members only; whose pleasure it is to devise aritl carry out plans for helping the church along. Whether it be that business cares prevent or what the cause is, men are not workers for the church as are ladies; the latter are earnest, zealous, enthusiastic, hopef ul and'TieTpf ulT " ThereTa're" few churches at Sterling that could be sustained without the support given them by the ladles of their membership. , . —The State geologist don't think that natural gas can be found in paying quantities in northern Illinois. Yet one well was found at Chicago a couple of weeks ago, and now there is another there, viz., at the Leland hotel. One of Its artesian wells, located beneath the building (It has two wells for supplying the house with water) gives out considerable gas, and doubtless, if the water were got rid of, it would prwe a regular bonanza. So. too, gas wells are found in other parts of Northern Illinois. _.0nr home company should take heart; Chicago now has two of these wells, and we must have one, anyhow. . —Our friend Mr. Ben C. Cook sends us the following taken from an exchange, as expressive of his views, as they also express ours: "Tell me not in mournful numbers that the town Is full of gloom, for the man's a crank than slumbers In vhese bustling days of boom. Life Is real, life is earnest, and the grave is not its goal, every dollar that thou turnest' helps to make the old town roll. But enjoyment, and —We have achild's-sledfactory here; why not go a step, further, and have a child's-wagon factory? A great many of these wagons are sold here at Sterling in a year; they are sold all over the United States. The demand for them is steady. ,It would not demand much capital to engage in a project of this kind and the profit is certain. —Strangers in seeking a new home look to the health of the commuity as well as to its commercial advantages. On this, point, Sterling Is strong. Some two years ago the GAZETTE published a list of names of men and women of this city who were seventy years old and upward, and the great number excited surprise. Health promotes longivity. —Off from our business streets, one finds that many pedestrians take to the middle of the street, because of the slippery condition of the sidewalks. We would caution people to be on the lookout at such times; for all horses do not have sleighbells, and all drivers are not careful of the rights of pedestrians. Keep a lookout ahead and behind, when you walk in the street. Company 77 Michael Stragoff Carnival Saturday niglTt. The Tax Books for Sterling township a*e now open in the Sterling National Bank. "W.

Seldom has it been tlio pleasure of a Peoria audience to witness as line a j^ny ag " Michel Strojfofi"' proved to 1-e last night. The house wns crowded, and the play t.hroughuift was greeted with enthusiastic applause. Aside' from the spectacular portion, in which is a fine ballet, the play itself is strong. and the story well told. The characters were well taken The time of the play ia long, taking nearly three hours, but the great audience sat through it all, and enjoyed it hugely. The churac ters of the two newspaper reporters were well sustained, ami sulliced to keep the audience in a roar when they appeared. The wonder in regard to the (^ama is how so much of a cast and so- much scenery can he carried aboutthe country under one management. Many of the audience last night were most agreeably disappointed especially those who had formed the idea that this drama was chiefly of n spectacular order.-Feoria 1 Transcript.

Address, tf not sorrow is our destined end or way, If you have no money, borrow—buy a corner lot each day I Lives of great men all remind us, we can win immortal fame, let us leave these chumps behind us, we will pe£ ttiere just the same.

The wealthy iliizen takes stock because he can afford U>, and K nows it will add to his wealth. The merchant takes some because he t elieves it w ill increase the population and thus Increase trade in all departments. The tradesmen and mechanics .take shares because it will bring factories and thus double his chances for securing labor. Attorneys are anxious to secure some because it is to them a guarantee of the coming of the county seat. Teamsters and day laborers take stock because they know that the building of a dam will furnish them employment the coming season and that in the future the construction of mills, foundries, machine shops, dwellings, stores, new railroads, county buildings, &C., &c., will be an endless source of nelp to support their families. How much will you take? —Who doesn't know Jim Herrington? Jim Is a railroad'member of the legislature. He is also, mayor of Geneva, Kane county, since it has been a city (In 1881) Jim training with railroads, which have It all their own way, has been trying the same dodge as mayor of Geneva. The aldermen not being accustomed to railroad ways, resist. Keault: Jim haa been declared "ousted" and an election has been called to choose his successor. Jim resists. Jim is foxy and Jim is sly. His enemies say "Jim is drunk," or Jim is crazy." Or crazy, or drunk, Jim still is smart, or shrewd, or *ly, as the Gene- vltes wiH find out before the "cruel war 1s over," Jim will nght for his place valorously, and will endeavor to show it Is hla adversaries who are drunk or crazy, and that it la he who Is per- f«otly Mtwr and M wise u Webster.
