Let some of our talking men make some rousing cheery speeches, ,nd then see how much more money Is o be raised, if any; and see how much more can be raised right there. .—This morning at 0 o'clock thermometers varied from 9 to'io degrees be- ow zero. Of course, we always put own the record of thermometers with n finite fear and trembling, because we know that no two are exactly alike and ach man knows his own la the best and entirely reliable. . —We thank Bro. Queergraln for his ileasant Words, but our modesty will not permit us to suffer them to appear n our columns. If only the blessings f greatly added prosperity may come upon our people, the GAZETTE and Its sdltor will be happy Indeed. —Mr. Jacob Heartz received a cable message from Germany yesterday announcing the death of his mother, which sad event occured yesterday morning. The message was dated 12:10 n Germany and he received it at 1:45 our time. Allowance, however, must be made for the several hours, dlfler- nce in time between the two places. —Here Is the latest gossip about the udgeship question, as taken from the Polo Press: "M. Y. Johnson of unsavory war record, It seems, has taken the nltiatory step to call together the law- era of this district at Freeport, to tell the people who they may vote for as Fudge Eustace's successor, as soon as lorernor Oglesby shall have called an election." —Manager Chamberlin says that with all his bad luck In getting entertainments thU season, he Is not wholly discouraged, because with the fullest assurance from the advance agent that the Michael Stragoff Company will be here intact as they have appeared in all the large cities. He can most heart!y and without reserve recommend to every one who attend shows at all the beautiful and wonderful spectacular entertainment that will be given at the Academy on next Saturday night. —Brother Shaw says it will take an awfully awful high dam at the head of the rapids to5back water up in the neighborhood of Dixon; so that we must forego the pleasures of tirat steamboat ride unless there can be dug a sort of canal from the head waters 01 the pond formed by the dam to Dixon In that way the waters will be deep enough all the wej, and our Dixoi frlenda in helping to construct this canal in the river can just imagine It Is a Hennepin beginner. —Don't have any, Brother Shaw "Act, act In the living present." "Trus no future howe'er pleasant." ,'To-day Is thine; tomorrow—God's." And sc we might multiply apt quotations, In proof that the Individual man must no look to the future. A community may because it is perennial; man is mortal Besides, we belong to a fraternlt; whose ouly honors consist in inner con scionsness of being over-worked o over-done. Dante's inscription ove the gateway to Bbeol may b« adopto by the editorial craft generally; "At*n dun all hope," of reward, uulll you ge to hurto. —Chronological! To day is the an- iversary of the surrender of Arkan- is Post in 1803. —Queergrain writes hopefully of the armers' condition; says all they have o sell brings good prices. —The stockholders of The First Na- ioual Bank held their annual meeting esterday p. m. The former members f the board, John S. Miller, Victor chifftnacher, Geo. F. Shuler, R. Chamion and W. A. Sanbom were reeled d. John S. Miller was reelected Pres- dent. —Dedicatory exercises will take lace tonight at Falrvlew (formerly lerger's) school house, In Jordan ownshlp. The school building Just ompleted is creditable to the taste' eneroslty and enterprise of the dis- rict, being a handsome structure, in- eed. The pnncipal of the three hools of Sterling, Rev. E. Brown, Co. apt. Hendrlcks end others have been nvited to be present and take part in e exercises. —It is never too late to do an act of ustice. Unintentionally we omitted he name and description of the toilette f the belle of the evening, at the Leap Tear party. By common consent it as our friend tie Postmaster, W. A. IcCune, whose garniture of gaily col- red ribbons, smiling face, ease and race, skill in dancing, unqualified modesty, personal pulchritude and ther attractions too numerous to men- ion, easily gave him the palm. He ore his honors with characteristic harm of modest manner. —Geneva isn't much for size, but ira Herrlngton lives there. The oth- r Geneva Is famous for having been :ie home for a while of Rousseau and ie place of his religious opposite Calin. But Jim Herrington is more famous iu his own eyes than either of Siese,—the skeptic or the predestina- ionist. Jim's aldermen have kicked im out, and he refuses to be kicked, 'hey accuse him of allowing but two aloons to run in that city and that be as a half interest in one of them; they ssert that he contracted debts for he city without asking the Council's onsent; and of writing the minutes to uit himself. In short, they declare im's ways to be more arbitrary than hose of the Sultan or Tzar, or the ormer Grand Mogul of the Indies. Jim ntimates that his aldermen knownoth- ng and that he had to assume a quasi- ictatorship; that the town was going o the dry-rot, and he puiposed infus- ng new life Into the decaying carcass. But the aldermen kicked hard, declar- d his office vacant and ordered a new lection for Jan. 28, next. Jim says hey may elect another man, but he'll ght them in the courts. Jim is a ighter—has fought with his lists as well as with his tongue and is equally ood at both. Geneva has only been a ity eight months, and some of its peo- ile think a city don't amount to much anyway, and are beginning to long for he quiet peace and serenity of village ays, when there were no Herrlngton mayors, and. when things were as scene and quiet as "when the yEgean wind has fallen asleep upon Hymettus nd the thymy ioles of Salamls aod Eginii lay huog like clouds upon the right and breathless sea." Sorrows are frequently begotten of ambition nd they are children that grow rap- dly. —Come out, out to that meeting to- ight. Let every body turn out and see what has been raised. Now as to wheth- r the whole amount will be'completed n-night or not, that Is another thing. Suppose it isn't, Rome OB Its Seven Hills was not built in a day; and so 1m- lortatit a matter as the raising of $30- XX) ought not to be expected to be con- ummated In a week or so. Several gentlemen have labored untiringly and ndefatigably in this, matter of sub- criptions. At the proper time we hall refer to them individually and by name 1 in order that our people may enow to whom they owe greatest .hanks for this, most 'praiseworthy work Any one who la>ors gratuetously and well for the public good is entitled to thanks. But t is not fair to ride a free horse to death; don't ask these gentlemen who are now engaged In soliciting to keep on continuously. Resolve that the money shall be raised. We trust devoutly that all the work shall be done by to-night; but if it shouldn't be, we see no need for anyone being discouraged. It may all be raised before bedtime; we trust it will be; but If It Isn't, why, then, give these gentlemen who are now soliciting some assistance; H sn't fair to Insist upon their neglecting their business for weeks and weeks. Appoint some others to cooperate with .hem, and keep right along cheerily and cheerfully, in the full confidence of an early victory. Men are successful when they resolve upon It. The solicitors have done well; they have raised a great many thousand dollars; they have t>roke.n down prejudice where they found it and have educated many into supremest faith in the dam and the benefits it will confer upon our city. It has been decided at two or three public meetings that the dam will be a bonanza for our two towns; that being true and all being agreed it is true, why, then, the next thing is to have It. To have It, Is to peg right away and show others that It Is a necessity, and to persuade others to subscribe. The harder the victory the more glorious It is. That which Isn't fairly won by effort, isn't worth having. Let all reflect upon the value and importance of the dam, and let all go out to-night resolved upon an enthusiastic, hearty, successful meeting. Why If it took it month or months to get it, we "Should go right on as strong in faith and as coctideut of success aa though 'twere all done in a day.

The production last night of Jules Verne's great drama, "Michael Stro- goff," was ureeted w ith a good house, considering the counter attractions in the city. Manager Andrews has shown himself a true Interpreter of the public taste in relieving the Intense dram atlc story by the introduction of the specialties produced by the Minnet Carnival company, and 'from the juggling Japanese to the gorgeous drill of the Emir's Amazonian guards, the Innovations were greatly enjoyed.—[Ex. *79 From Deer Grove.
