THE EVENING GAZETTE: TUESDAY, JANUARY 10 Evening Gazette. T K KSIH ; cV..IO rt».l DRLIVIRftD BT OiRKI TUESDAY. JAN. 10.1SSS. AT THEIR FOSTH. PIca*nrahle Time la G. A. K. Ball JjSRt Sight. INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS GOOD SOCIAL TIMK. AND A SOUTHERN ILLINOIS is like the Southern States; It baa a multiplicity of candidates for office. Scarcely a d ay passes that one does not hear of some new aspirant for State office of some kind. They have a way too, these Southern Illinois men in State conventions of agreeing to disagree and of finally settling down upon some of heir number for the various offices. They have candidates for each of the offices and will get most of them, unless northern Illinois makes a departure from its former practice of dividing its strength. It is high time that this part of the State which gives the party most of Its votes had some say-so in the matter of candidates. CHICAGO is a city which doe s not observe Sunday with that reverence which marked the Pilgrim Fathers. On the contrary, the theaters are in full blast and the saloons keep open. The dime museums count Sunday their best day; in fact, they do as much on that day as in any three days of the week put together. Yet Chicago is a city of churches and there is much reiU practical piety there. As a fact, it is cosmopolitan. People are massed there from all parts of the globe and Sunday-pleasure-loving Europeans insist upon doing at Chicago what they did at home. Native Americans there as elsewhere, aa a rule, observe the Sabbath by attending upon divine services and spending the remainder of the day at home or in a quiet walk or drive. It la not possible IB so large a city as that and composed of such a heterogeneous mass, to hold things where they are in smaller places. The staid, orthodox New Englanders must receive however, severe shocks on their Brat Sunday in the great city. A MUSIC TEACHEB said once in our hearing: "Life is shorter with me than with other people. Why, I declare an hour given to my pupil flies so rapidly that I scarcely can believe that ten minutes are really gone." Now he thought that such experience was confined to music-teaching alone; when as a fact, it is that of all who are enthusiasts in their respective callings. One to be successful must be enthusiastic, If enthusiastic, his hours are as moments so rapidly do they fly. Love your trade, your profession, your calling. Understand fully that all that you have to do you must do with heart, soul, mind and strength, and except for recurrences of tiredness, worry, bother, inability to apply one's self to any duty (and these are not often) and then duty Is a pleasure greater than is found in any of the so-called pleasures of life. What thou has to do, djo with thy might; do it with courage; do it as in the knowledge that it will make you wiser and better, and then all duty ceases to be a labor, but' is a pleasure and a delight. Six MONTHS or less from the present time the Republicans will hold a convention at Springfield to nominate State officers; and to this convention good men will go from all parts of the State and thoae attending for the first time will really go there 'under the impression that they have a duty to discharge. The delusion will not last; for they will be squarely told,that their friends will vote for so-and-so and that they must do the same thing. It is useless to resist: there is no chance for a hearing. The chairman of the convention is instructed whom to recognize, and will give none else the floor. The slate is made up a long time in advance of the convention, upon the lead- Ing places. In order to keep the delegates from kicking on account of the bossism, the office of State treasurer is usually left open for a free-for-all race, and in tbat single office preference may 'be expressed. In 1884 we recall distinctly the unsuccessful effort that was made by certain of the delegates to find out who chose the delegates at large to the national convention. The enquirers really felt that they bad a preference and desired to express it; but, no, there they were, chosen by those most interested by the party; and In they must go. And In they did go. And what is true of the Republican conventions, Is true, also, of the Democratic conventions. There is a "combine,"—the leaders get together before the convention h called, agree upon the mode of conducting the convention, decide upon the officers, and upon the candidates to be chosen. Nor is it con- Hoed to Illinois, these practices; but all over tbe land, and in every State thereof, the same rule of the leaders, or bosses, as they are termed, settlesftEe matter of nominations and determines the plan of action for the party. And yet it has been said tbat thU is a country where the people rule. They don't make party nominations, at any rate. —The Wednesday Club will have a social tomorrow evening, Jan. nth. A fine musical programme has been prepared. All members are requested to attend. —This morning early Mr. Hamblin In the oil stove store, turned on a flame rather high and the result was a spread of oil and a rising of flame which might have meant a conflagration, but for the timely Appearance of Mr. Jim Orerbol- •er, who extinguished the fire, before It made much headway.

Capt. Wm. Parker, the outgoing commander, presided, and the exercises began about 8 o.clock, first by an order for Officer of the Day Nelson Smith to bring in and introduce inspecting officer Capt. J. W. Niles, who upon entering assumed command of the post. Capt. Niles, thereupon, installed, after the manner prescribed by the oider the following officers: W.N. Harrison, Senior Vice Commander. N. G. VanSant, Jurior Vice Commander. Dr. F. W. Gordon, Surgeon. E. W. Blossom, Quartermaster. S. S. Tuttle, Officer of the Day. Phil Kirvin, Officer of the Guard. After these the Chaplain, Rev. Gilman Parker, was installed. Then followed the installation of Commander- elect Capt. Moses Dillon. After be was installed, he named as his Adjutant Thomas Diller, who In turn named R. Keeney as Sergeant Major. Quarter- tennaster Blossom named his Sergeant, W. H. Wellington, all of whom were Inducted Into office. Commander Dillon upon being escorted to his seat, addressed the assemblage in words, substantially as follows: COMBADES:—I thank you for the great honor you have conferred on me by electing me Comamnder of Will Kob Inson Post No. 274 G. A. R. The past year with us has been a successful one and we must all try and make the coming year more go if possible and in order to make a success of it every one must do his part The officers must be prompt and regular in attendance and take an interest in every thing that comes up before us and that will Insure a good attendance of the Comrades. The Urst thing that comes to my mind Is what can we do for tbe Post and ourselves the coming year that will do us good and the generations to follow. There is nothing like lots of work to make us stick together.grow and think more of each other as the years roll by and our ranks grow thlner. The question of a Soldiers' Monument has often been talked of. I have looked the question over and have made up my mind if we ever get one for our dead comrades and ourselves we must build it ourselves.- And in order to do it we must map out a plan and work It up. My plan would be to form a Soldiers' Monument Association, composed of soldiers and citizens; have it Incorporated; elect a set of officers; get out a neat little address, setting forth what we propose to do; have a blank space to fill out with the amount you propose to give. Address one of these cards to the relatives of every dead comrade, asking them what they are willing to give towards building the monument and have their soldier relatives' names on the monument.' We should raise 85,000 for the purpose, and at our next Decoration day services have the address on that line, and we could work up a big subscription list on that day. Are we willing to undertake the noble work? All in favor of it rise to their feet, Our home papers will give us their hearty support and do all they can, and if we all take hold of the question we are -bound to be successful. Past Commander Parker, in compliance with a resolution adopted at some previous meeting, to the effect tbat all outgoing commanders present the Post with a picture of themselves, to be hung in the Hall, now presented in a brief and appropriate speech a counter- felt presentment of himself, to which Commander Dillon responded in words of acceptance of the same. The following officers in brief but fitting words'returned thanks for the hon" or conferred on them in electing them to their respective places (they 1 also endorsed Commander Dillon's remarks on the soldiers' monument): Senior Vice Commander, W. N. Harrison; Junior Vice Commander, Van Sant; Surgeon, Gordon; and Chaplain, Parker. At this point Commander Dillon asked all to arise who would render assistance In building the monument during the coming year. Every -person present arose, thus testifying that the sentiment in favor of a soldiers' monument is unanimous. TILE SONS OF VETERANS. Commander Dillon now turned matters over to Capt. Louis Elsele, Commander of KUgour Camp, No. 30, Sons of Veterans, who assumed tbe chair: The officers elect, as their names were called by Installing officer Hoyt, took their respective places: J. B. Dillon, Captain. John Haberer, 1st Lieutenant. John Kline, id " Louis Eisele, ) W. F. Mangan, } Members of Council. S. T. Mangan, ) All of whom were duly Installed and conducted to their places, the old officers retiring, and Captcin elect Dillon was placed in command, a'ter which he announced his staff officers: , ! H. A. Comstock, Chaplain. David Llewellyn, 1st Sergeant. Bert Van Horn, Quartermaster Serg't. W. A. Rood, Color Sergeant S T. Mangan, Sergeant of Guard. Will Angcll, Corporal of " R. L. Mangan, 1st Magician. Wra. Murphy, Camp Guard. Perry Babcock, Picket Guard. all of whom were duly installed. Captain Dillon made a speech of Uwnki and then called upop Installing officer Hoyt, who presented retiring Captain EUsI* with an *x Captata't iron cross, given by Colonel McCrellis, Colonel of the State. The ex-captain returned Ms sincere thanks. Commander Dillon then presented Captain Eisele, on behalf of the Sons of "Veterans with a fine badge. Lieutenant Haberer and Inspector Nilea made brief remarks, the former returning thanks for his election, the latter confcTatuln- ting the Sons, the G. A. R's. and W. R. C's., as being the most successful and prosperous In tbe district. The Grand Army then took charge Commander Dillon ordering in the "forage", which was brought in by six comrades. All did ample justice to the viands. After this sometime was spent in social converse and when adjournment was had all united in saying they had had the very best time ever before had in the Hall In all their lives. CURES FOP, LNSOMIA. BOB BURDETTE GIVES A LON3 LI3T OF SURE REMEDIES. —The Will Robinson Post has added a large steel engraving of Andersonville prison to their wall adornments. —The father and mother of Alexander and Wood Murphy celebrated today their golden wedding. They live in the 4th ward, and there are present with them their immediate family as well aa friends who unite with them in commemorating the anniversary. A half century is a long time, and a half century of married life is something so exceptional aa to merit special notice. The family remembered the aged couple with appropriate presents. —Elsewhere in these columns will be found an account of two very interest- Ing events, the one Is the installing of the officers of Will Kobinson Post and the Sons of Veterans and the other is the leap year party given by young ladies of Sterling. At the former Captain Dillon made a speech to which we invite the careful attention of our readers. The soldiers dead merit a monument to their memory; its erection will be a monument as well to the munificence of our people, as it is to the honored dead. The young ladies by common consent are permitted once in four years to turn the tables on the young mea,—can say, I will go with this or that one to the party, and I will ask this or that one to dance with me. There is something in that privelege. While on other occasions it is her pri- velege to say I will, or will not to those who ask her to dance or to accompany her to this or that party, still she cau- iiot choose those whom she may refuse Last night was one of those occasions in which the tables were completely turned and the young ladies were pri- veleged to choose -just whom they would. The dance was a charming affair and all greatly enjoyed themselves. The G. A. E.'s and the S. of V.'s enjoyed themselves greatly, too. As we said before we repeat: We commend Captain Billon's remarks to our readers. They are practical and to the point. Carried out, they will give our soldiers a monument, as they deserve. —We know a man who will go to his money drawer five or six times a day, or o'tener, and running his hands into it, pick up the paper money and gold and silver and rub it gleefully with his hands,—his whole face assuming an expression like unto that of a miser. And miser he is while that mood is upon him; for never does his face light up at other times; never do its mus- eles stand rut in such bold relief as then. Money is a good thing to have; it is a wonderful solace in time of tr u- ble; and it can provide one with friends; but money, per se, should not be the, heart's desire. It should be loved only for the blessings it can bestow. It should never be loved for the money's sake. . But this man that we speak of has no use for much money. He has no habits that demand the use of money. He probably uses up half a thousand a year upon himself and his proflts are twenty times that. He is upwards of fifty and a bachelor, with no near kin in need of money. Why should he lore money? He could now retire from business for he has more than a man of bis habits could spend if he lived to be an hundred—even if he got no interest upon his property. But he does love money for the money's sake He once admitted to us that his heart rejoiced in the. mere acquisition of money,—he actually experienced pleasure in the thought, I bave added so much and so much more to what I previously had. Presently, though, there will be a tap at the door of his life, and when he asks who comes, the answer will be, Death, and not all that he baa earned will put off the caller a single moment; and not all that he .has collected will make brighter bis life in the land over the river of Death. To get money and accumulate it is a duty; for one cannot tell whether his strength will always hold out; and, besides, he has need to think of bis family; but to love money because it Is money is to be miserly and the miserly man is not honest with self or anybody else. Movement* at Population. Same of the "Infallible Car»«" Whleh the Hnmoriftt Has Jotted Down In HJ« Llttlo Health Book—On* of the Mj-B- terle.. What pleases me when I am tormented with slo>f>;iU>Ksness is a little health book of my own, In which I have Jotted down a few—u very few—of the "Infallible remedies" for sleeplessness which have been tried in thousands—or perhaps it was millions—of cases, most of which were tha prescribcr's own immeillnto family, or, at the farthest, circle of immediate friends, and bad never once failed to cfTect a permanent, and it Is .needless to sny, instant cure. All of these cases collectively and ench one by itself Individually were and was exactly like my own in canse, durar tlon and operation. The simplicity of ths combined remedy appeals at once to human confidence. Eat nothing within three hours befcro retiring. Eat a light but . substantial luncheon just before going to bed. Nature abhors a vacuum. (This Is oue of the prescriptions I like.) Read light literature before going to bed. Read nothing after supper. Walk a mile in the open air just before bedtime. Go to your room an hour before retiring and read until bedtime. Give up smoking altogether. llf you are a smoker, a cigar just before retiring will soothe and tranquillize your nerves until you can't keep awake. Don't think about sleeping; you scare away slumber by wooing the drowsy god. ADDITIONAL REMEDIES. Resolutely resolve, as you lie down, that yon will go to sleep, and sleep will come naturally. ~ — Take a warm bath and go from the tub into bed. Take a cold sponge bath, jump into bed, and you'll be asleep before your head touches the pillow. ' Walk slowly about your room half an hour. Lie on your right side, with your cheek on your hand. Lie, on your left side, with your head resting on your arm. Drink milk. (This, according to my experience, Is the best prescription in the lot. It will make you sleep better than all the bromides going, which are snares, and delusions. But milk diet not on! y makes yon sleep at night, but you want to sleep nil the next duy. It makes you intolerably stupid all the time. It is a very pleasant, half awake feeling, If you have nothing else to do but to enjoy falling asleep at any time and in all manner of places, like Colvillo in the best told story of these times, "Indian Summer;" but if you have any.work to do it Is embarrassing.) Count up to 100. (I tried this Inhuman bit of Idiocy one night. I came very near falling asleep two or three times, but was started wide awake by suddenly becoming conscious that I had lost my count, and had to begin over again. This cure kept me awake one whole night, while I wag so sleepy I could scarcely hold my eyes open. The friend who gave me this prescription is not living now. She was a woman, and I could not, as a gentleman, offer her violence. So I dosed a box of marshmallowH with Rough on Hats and sent them to her.) WHAT IS TO BE DONE f So, what Is a sleepless man who wants to sleep going to do? If he eats a slight luncheon, smokes a mild cigar, readBuu- ner an hour, walks a mile in tho air, comes back and walks another mile about his room, takes a sponge bath, cold, followed by a tub bath, warm, drinks a pint of milk, jumps into bed and lies ou both sides, with his head on one arm and ona hand, and counts a thousand, it will be time to pet up, anyhow, and bw can have a few nervous fits during the day.. It is a fact, however, that even men who think they suffer from sleeplessness do not lio awake half so long as tbey Imagine they do. When a man says to mo, "I did not close njy eyes once all night," I know he lies. , Not intentionally, of course; ho thinks ho was awake all night; the probability is that he did not get to sleep until two hours after his regular time, and it seemed an age to him. Really, it isn't often that a nun lies awake the Whole night through. I am not a physician, and cannot speak by tho book, but •! believe that men fib about their restless nights more than any other ill to which our weak humanity la heir. Now take your own case; you Mmember the last time you lay awake all night, don't youf Yes, I see you do. Well, don't you remember that same night you heard the clock strike 2, and then tbe next time you heard it it struck If Yes? I see yon do. Well, that's one of the mysteries about insomnia that is difficult to explain.—Burdette. TO-SIGHT. T. P. A. Elect on of officers. Dancing class to-night. KOCK.
