It frequently happens that they do not mall them in time for the carrier to reach us until after his 4!04 delivery and thus, of course, they are too late for that day. We received a notice a; 4:30 yesterday alternoon asking us to make mention in yesterday's GAZETTE of the dancing school tonight (Tuesday) and also to state that the class would meet every Tuesday hereafter; the afternoon class at 4:00 o'clock and the evening class at 7:45 o'clock. This explains the non-appearance of the notice in yesterday's paper; we did not get the letter until after the paper was off. —In the case of Mrs. Merrill against the city of Sterling for damages alleged to have been sustained some three years since by a fall on one of the sidewalks of our city, the appellate court on Saturday sustained the decision of the lower court, and it now looksjas though the city would have to pay. We suppose it might be carried to the Supreme court, but the matter of doing so Is of doubtful expediency. Defeated in both courts, there .would seem to be but little show of getting a reversed of the verdict already against the city, and it would but serve to add to expenses that are already very large. We are not Informed as to the precise amount, but with costs of all kinds the amount to be paid Is consid- A |Vet y Notabte and Brilliant Ir Year Party In Blasonle Temple A number of our -young society people were on the qui vive of expectancy during the past fortnight, in view of the young ladies leap year party to take place in Masonic Temple last night. It is DOT over and reviewing it, we can safely say It was one of the best managed, brilliant and delightful parties which ever took place at Sterling, It was planned and executed by the young ladies alone. Their work is highly creditable to them. They set the young gentlemen most commendable example of gentle ' courtesy. They not only called for them and returned home with them after the party closed, but all through the evening, did but a fan or a handkerchief drop from the timid hand of a gentlemen, a young lady was promptly at hand to pick it up and return it to its owner with a pleasant smile and easy grace- At the supper table, they ignored self and were careful to have the young gentlemen served with the choicest of the viands. They were all ease, grace, courtesy and refinement Those ladles present and the gentle- men'they escorted are as follows: Mrs. and Mr. Ed. Underwood, Mrs. afad Mr. L. E. Brookfleld, Mrs. and Mr. B.

The dancing began at 0 o'clock wit h a grand march, Miss Belle Hubbard and Mr. As. Lewis leading. From that time onward until 2 o'clock, with an Interval of an hour for supper, dancing was kept ur/unremittingly and enjoyably. The Temple auditorium Is large and the ceiling high. In the galleries were quite a sprinkling of ladies and gentlemen looking down upon the elegant scene. The ladies were were elaborate, the hall was beautifully decorated, the music was exceptionally good, the supper was elegant and elfgantly served, tho gontlemen were all well dresBPd, every one was in excellent humor, and so entirely successful was it that It will afford theme for conversation for along, long time to come. When in want of muslins, sheeting, ghirtlng and ticking go to J. Lendman's Store, as he received a nice lot of them and sells them very cheap, also received a new lot of handkerchiefs and yarns at equally low prices. d78-w2 Notice Is hereby given that a meeting of the shareholders of the First National b»nk of Sterling will be held at the office nf said bank on Tuesday the loth day of Jnrmary ntxt at 2 o'clock p. m. for the purpose of electing a board of Directors for the ensuing year and transacting such other business as may properly come before them. 78 W.

Let us hear no more about annexing Canada or Mexico. We are too large now; extending from ocean to ocean and from 40 degrees below to 80 above at the same moment; from North Da- kato to Florida, and from the White bear to the alligator. Some say annex Rock Falls. What would we gain V Another faction to harmonize. We are now more than two miles in length, and have hard work to harmonize the extremes. I would not give a dam for all these annexations. Let us look well to what we have, and build the dam, and we shall be a growing and a happy people. C. [The editor of the GAZETTE has not heard any proposition to "annex" Rock Falls. All the people of Sterling he has talked with are of the opinion that that Is a matter that belongs to Rdck Falls. Sterling is in must amiableymood; there is not the slightest feeling in any quarters of the city, but we are a solidly united whole; also In entire harmony and amity with our Rock Falls neighbors, and with no thought, purpose or plan of annexation. "C" must have been sticking pretty close at home for a long, long time, or he would not have written the foregoing. We don't want any annexation of Canada or Mexico: nor do we want Rock Falls annexed until she wishes to be; but we do want the dam. And as far as we can learn sentiment here at Sterling, we express it in these words: Entire harmony among all our people; progress and development] Any one who Is affected with Tetter, Salt Rheum or any Itching or smarting skin disease sbunld try Chamberlain's Eye and Skin Ointment.

Sterling." Will those who have any data of whatever kind,— circulars, pamphlets, local papers, letters or aught else connected with the history of Sterling from its first settlement up to and including the year 1801 kindly furbish us the same? We will take good care of them and return to their owners. Also, will any of the older inhabitants (who came prior to 1845) who will be willing to be interviewed by us send us their address on a postal card? Through no fault of ours the publcation of these' Recollections or Reminiscences was postponed after the second article. We shall resume their publication only after we shall have a considerable part of the work done, in order that there may not be again any suspension. This is purely a labor of love on our part and we do trust that all who can will assist us in perpetuating the tames of those who were pioneers in this western country and whose privations and whose labors entitle them to the reward of being remembered by this generation. ~ — At a meeting of stockholders of. the Sterling National Bank this morning, the following directors were elected, J. R. Bell, C. M. Russell, Bi-C. Church, A. A. Wolfersperfrer, Adam Smith and Johh Lawrence, all reelected, except Mr. Church. The directors met at 2 o'clock this afternoon and reelected Mr. J. R. Bell president, John H. Lawrence cashier and E. G. Church teller. Mr. M. G. Hoover was retained as book-keeper. The report showed the bank to be in excellent condition, a surplus on hand and money to loan. Mr. Bell and Mr. Lawrence are prominent business men of our city, each engaged one in merchandise and the other In manufacturing. Mr. Bell has been president since the death of Mr. B. C. Church and Mr. Lawrence suc- £eeded Mr. Re«d ia I860 as cashier.

There were gathered youth, beauty, elegance, • with strong and hopeful manhood; and couples Jmoved in rhymthic grace to the excellent music furnished by the Dixon orchestra. The fair hands and ready skill of the ladles had decorated the hull most beautifully, with flags,Chinese lanterns, handpainted screens and other adornments. What with the surroundings, the galaxy of beauty among the ladies and perfectness of manly strength among the men, it was a scene long to be remembered by those looking on as well as those participating. Supper was served in an adjoining room and was given under the auspices of Grace Episcopal church guild, who, by the verdict of all we have seen, furnished the most elegant supper they have yet provided, and this is highest possible compliment, because these ladles always give splendid suppers. At the sapper table the gentlemen who had previously been supplied with button-hole bouquets by the ladies, were made the recipients of satin mittens, George W. Clark took charge of the gentleman's wrappings and did his part right royally »nd well. The several committees having the party in charge, are as follows: Floor managers: Mrs. Jas. A. McCune and* Misses Ella Spencer, Belle Hubbard, Jo. Crawford and Mrs. H. B. Anning. Reception committee: Miss Florence Pennlngton, Sue Kilgour, Hattie Hubhard, Bertie Palmer and Minnie Ball. Arrangements committee: Mrs. E. W. Blossom, and Misses LI Kilgour and Grace Richards. The ladles wore neatly printed mottoes. When a gentleman accorded them permission to Jdance, they deftly turned it so it read "thanks awfully!" When the dance was over and they were escorted to their seats, the ladies before leaving them, turned the ob- verso side, which read, "Excuse me a moment" Thus were they economical o( words. It wa» a raoit successful party throughout.
