THE EVEMUG GAZETTE: THURSDAY, JAHUAET o 1888. Evening Gazette. TTWR *»«_:__ Per Vr«l»...Ifl rts. I Par Yfsr ...««.OO DBUTVUBKH BT OAHRISR. THURSDAY. JAN. 12. 1WS. fH'HOOI, MICIIELET, ONE of France's greatest historians said to his clasa in history sometime In the year 1S43 substantially as follows: "You spend your time in reading histories,—that of the revolution and perhaps my own. I tell you that right out on the streets of this city (Paris) you will find men of about 00 years of age, selling perhaps second hand goods, <T adopting some other uncertain mode of earning a livelihood; it is they who are the incarnation of history. I write history, and others write history. We tell a small part only of what has happened. These living men know more than we have told. They represent the days of the Empire and of the Restoration. They have seen for themselves and acted for tnem- selves. Go to them; and they can teach you what books cannot teach you. The historian repeats what he has heard. These men tell you what they saw and what they did. Go to them and delay not: for time is doing his work and one by one they are passing away." It was sympathy with this sentiment and faith In it that led us to begin a task which we have pursued as best we might under a profession that seems to engage all our time. We refer to that of interviewing and publishing words and acts of the old settlers of Sterling. How little do the books tell us of the days from 1835 to 1801V A few pages cover all the information. Go, though, to Hezeklah Brink, Simeon M. Coe, D. O. Co«, Mrs. Wallace, Mr. Bush and others Who came herein the earlier days, and It is they who are historians in the true sense, f or they bear in memory the days of isolation.-from the outside world—of transition from wild prairie to fertile. It was Erkmann-Chatrain. the two Alsace boys, who went to Paris and formed a literary partnership, which has since continued and in which they have grown famous, who became impressed with Michelet's words above quoted. They have written book after book of French life taken from the participants in the events of the past, and they have been without exception read eagerly by their countrymen. Of course one cannot win fame in making but a simple record of a single locality, - but he can pay a tribute to the memory of those brave men and women who went outside the border of civilization and began a new civilization which today compares favorably with the most favored regions and like Simeon's, their eyes have endured to see the salvation of the land,—its redemption from the short grass and wild flowers of the great prairies and development into a - great fertile farm country that delights the eyes of the beholders as it enriches the purses of those owning the fields and houses of this portion -of Rock Riv. er valley. As time muy»be given us and as strength may be vouchsafed unto us, we shall make the record plainly and simply, leaving it for those coming after us, gifted beyond our gifts and having more time than we to eliminate what is superfluous and correct what is erroneous. As germane to the thought, how many might engage in taking the histories of the hundreds of thousands of private soldiers who were heroes in the late war. Death too, is laying his sickle fast among them, while time is blearing the memory of the days when each breath bore a pestilence and each night brought a fresh danger. One 'of our great magazines for nearly two years sent out month by month accounts of battles fought as recited by the generals who fought them. But in our war there were generals who carried there were forces boys. Interesting F.xerrlxcn | n Jortlnn 'J't»TFn«l<ip iSHt night. ~I>lstrict No. 7.- in Jordan township has done itaelf greatest credit in the completion of its handsome and roomy school house, the dedicatory exercises of which took place last night. The building stands a monument to the liberality of the district and to the earnest work of the three directors, Reuben C.Williams, Mathias A. Schick and Rlpley Stauffer, who have devoted much of their time to the business of erecting the structure. This school house, formerly known as Berger, but now as Fairview, stands one mile east of'Penrose, in one of the most fertile regions of the State, and its patrons are successful, practical farmers of liberal ideas and alive to the Importance of popular education. The interior of the really handsome building was most tastefully decorated last night. On the wall back of the teacher's stand was a motto in evergreens, "Welcome;" on the opposite wall were "God bless our school" and "honesty is the best policy." Besides these there were very neat festoons and garlands. The seats a- e single and of latest design: a patent blackboard runs all around the room: and there is a wealth of patent rolling maps of latest execution. President of the school board, Reuben C. Williams presided at last night's, exercises. There were present not only the patrons of the school, but fclso neighbors for miles around, as well as quite a number of teachers. The pro- gramme began with a song, a trio by Miss Horning, E. K. Jenkins and J. B. Hughes, followed with a prayer by llev. E. Brown; then by a song by the trio. A letter was read from the County Superintendent, expressing his regrets at not being able to be present, rheumatism keeping him at-home. He congratulated the district upon the completion of the structure, the results of which were not measured, he said, by. its size or beauty, but by its results upon the generation that is and those that fo'low after. This school had long occupied a prominent place as one of the best in the county; the directors for years have been noted THE BRAZILIAN CAPITAL — Pnbllo SOME Of THE PECULIAR CHARACTERISTICS OF RIO JANEIRO.

The upper floors are used as residences and offices and in many cases are as densely peopled with the human herd as the tenements of our large cities. Glazed doors or hinged windows, call them which yon will, open upon the balconies and are nearly always open. At any time you may see some one In nearly every' balcony, but toward sunset women and children gather there en masse to gaze at those passing in the street below and to display their toilets. UntU then they are en des- habille. They could not be expected to take the trouble to "dress up" and then not be seen, and they cannot go out for a walk. Social usage forbids that. for good judgment, enthusiasm and progressiveness, and have employed the best of teachers and retained them as Ion? as possible. The results of this policy are shown in the high character of the pupils sent out from this school. He congratulated them upou the re' suits reached and the promises of the future. - , .

Various government offices are there located at present. The emperor occupies a morej modern mansion farther from the business center. The suburban residences are the finest, and though they present an appearanci very different from anything to which we are accustomed, they are well suited to the climate and satisfy all the demands of Comfort and luxury. They are generally box shaped, two stories high, excessively ornamental in front and plain upon the other sides. An abundance of large windows, always open, enables those passing to see into them almost as well as if the fronts were removed entirely. The Brazilians do not object to being seen. The ladies will stand,in their balconies, or wide verandas, and return the boldest stare without flinching. They appear to regard It rather ns complimentary than rude The grounds about the houses are teatlly laid out and abundantly planted with the richest of tropical flowers; fruits ferns and piilms.

Severs! of the passengers are reported to be fatally burned, while many others wore so severely hurt that they had to be carried to the nearest station. The main portion of the train had readied the next station, twenty miles distant, before the train rairn discovered the loss of the rear car. Peculiar and Horrible Accident. CINCINNATI, Jan. I£— A peculiar accident happened Wednesday afternoon to a 9-ysar- old boy named Joe Bauer, who lives with his parents at 9 Renner street. The lad was playing with a companion at the corner of Ravine and Brown street. He had a rope with which he madt a loop and fastened it to •his log at tho knee, _ A gentleman In a baggy drove by and young Bauer Jumped on b«- hlnd the vehicle to steal a ride. The rope, which was a strong one, became fastened in the wheel and winding around the hub pulled tho child's log off before the occupant of the buggy realized what had happanod.

A fellow-workman and Caffrey were dumping coal and ore, when the top of hot material fell In and sent up a great volume of flime and gas. This happened Just as CaN frey dumped the barrow. la a second he was wrapped In flames. Workmen tore the burning clothes from his body, but he was horribly burned, and died In great agony. A Train Goes Through • Trestle. CHAKLZSTON, a C., Jan. ia-A special dispatch received here says that a serious ao- cident occurred Wednesday at Hickory, N." C., on the Cheater & Lenoir railroad. An entire train, consisting of an engine and three cam, fell through a trestle, and tho wrecked cars look flre and were all burned. The engineer, Henry Dir. and his fireman were caught in the wreck, an-1 both were badly burned. One of the passengers is reported to be severely injured, and several others more or less bruised.

And as said at the beginning, Furray, W. T. Tuttle, Abram Ebersole 6. T. Shirley, John Maxwell. E. K Jenkins, W.

Not only have they one of the best country school buildings in the county, but they have a superior teacher; the people of the district are social andhonest, induatrious and progressive. The dedicatory exercises would have been creditable to any people anywhere. Some of the speeches were of high order of merit; all of them were good. The singing was excellent, the recitations and general exercises highly entertaining. Falrview school is a credit to the school cause in Whiteside county. pearance.
