It would require many rol- umes to contain a bare statement of the Items of knowledge possessed by an man of ayerage intelligence. Greater minds possess even greater knowledge. Tet wise as they are, how little do they know, after all. What can they tell of the mystery of life itself and that profounder mystery, death? What know they of the economy of the universe V or a thousand and one other puzzles that rack the brain of the thinker? Perhaps In all science no one thing baa been so closely observed as the weath er. Of first importance to the mariner and having direct Influence upon the growing crops, as well as the movements of individuals and the health of the human family, there has been more time, more money and more zeal expended In study of the coming and going of the wind, of the gathering and dispelling of the clouds, the humidity of the air or the extremes of heat and cold, than upon any hundred other matters. With what result? .We answer, next to nothing. The government has an expensive and extensive bureau for the study of the weather; after a score of years of existence, it cannot predict with confidence two days ahead and its twenty four hour prognostications are wrong one time in ten. In general terms we explain the ' phenomena of air and ocean currents, and much is written upon the seasonal, the equatorial and the Arctic Influences. Yet we say with posltlveness that much that la said is •hypothetic and theoretic. For instance, what can explain the pheno- . menon ol Thursday night;—a change from melting to fifty degrees below the freezing point in a space of ten hours ? It is easy to say the blast came from the Arctic circle; but what does that prove? . Again: in summer one sees one section overburdened with rain and another suffering from drought, and they both in the game latitude and not an hundred miles apart; then it is said that .local ~ "causes will explain the phenomenon; Or, again: places in the same latitude and not fifty miles apart will differ as much as twenty degrees in heat. We are not yet at a knowledge of the laws of the weather. Maury teaches that the Gulf Stream gets its heat in the Caribbean sea; modern scientists boldly assert it receives it from volcanic veins along its route. So with weather and temperature; the sun is not source of all heat; earth itself gives it out, and to earth Itself must, finally men go to find explanation of weather and temperature phenomena. The smallneas of knowledge touching these things ought to make us all very modest and humble. —Longfellow's picture of the march of the youth in Excelsior and his vis ion of lights gleaming through the win dows of happy homes always profound ly impressed us. Bnow now covers the earth; the air is chill and cold; all with out is cheerless and dim after nighl fall The pedestrians one by one hurry along. They see lights gleaming, away off through the darkness. • One shines for this and another for that, bnt all for somebody. These lights serve as guides for those who walk after night shadows have fallen, and as they hasten along, endeavoring by rapid steps to maintain the caloric in their bodies, as they see this and that one, they say inwardly communing, "This one lives thore*Dd that one there. This one has A charming wife and- nice children;" that one has invalid wife, or sick child. The light in the window is there, and it tells of home within. Mayhap all are there; mayhap one is not yet home. But he who is kept out later than the rest comes in finally, and there he finds comfort, peace, rest, content and happiness Thas light to him is what the lighthouse lanop with its monster reflector and revolving apparatus is to the pioneer a» he ploughs the sea near to shore. It is beacon toward which he is looking throughout the long day •ad- he blesses God that it shines for him, and that once within the room where it rests he is secure from the world. The home Is his custle, his city of refuge. There none can come to molest or make afraid; there are those who love and care for him, and who will be with him in sickness as in health, through all conditions of wealth and poverty and sadness. "In happy h^mea he saw the light." God bless happy homes the world over. They are they which, develop noble sons and pure daughters; they are they which afford earnest that paradise yet is upon eartn, and that the serpent has no longer power to entice men to do wrong. la the happy home no serpent can come to entice the Inmates to wrong; it is away from home the young must jfo to loam wrong and to do wrong. So ends our Saturday evening talk and writing. —A meeting of the Knights of the Haccabbees will be held to-night at 8. 8, Crleder's, opposite Walla.ce House, at 8 o'clock to make arrangements for installation next week. ~Mr>W.

Our townsman, Geo. E. Bogers is a very proud and happy man today, as he will be for many days to come. Last night he was the recipient of two honorable tokens of the esteem and respect and confidence of the citizens of Ster- lug among whom he has resided so many years. One of these testimonials is a splendid, the best possible to be bad, Howard gold watch, Mr. Blossom having gong into Chicago especially to purchase it, and presented on behalf of citizens of Sterling, Mr. C. 0. Johnson making the presentation speech. The other was a volunter testimonial signed by business men exclusively, the subject matter of which we give below, — an expression of entire confidence and a recommendation to "whom it may concern" of Mr. Rogers for any position to which he may aspire; and these signers are men who have done business for years with the Northwestern road. The regret at Mr. Roger's enforced resignation was general, It was felt to be no just that so efficient and worthy an officer must make way for some other person, merely because some aspiring official wished to have his friends in all the best places. Hence there was general desire to testify regret and at the same time confidence. Elence the spontaneous testimonials, first of the magnificent gold watch and the written testimonial. We publish the testimonial and the signatures. Glancing at them one sees that there are the names of the solid business men of Sterling. First, Mr. Rogers received a testimonial (an elegant ma- sonic charm) from bis former employes. Friends around town, shippers, merchants, manufacturers, bankers and professional men presented the watch, and business men signed the testimonial. The presentation of watch and testimonial took place in Masonic Temple last night and there were present many of the friends who signed the tea timonial and donated the watch. While Mr. Rogers may have doubtless suffered In mind by his removal, these evidences of the friendship and esteem of his peo pie must be a solace for the wound Any living man would be proud, de lighted and happy in Mr. Rogers'place. Mr. Johnson's speech was a veryliappy one, in which he adverted in strong terms to Mr. Rogers' efficiency as an officer and his merits as a man. Mr. Rogers, while deeply moved by these high evidences of the esteem of his people, was able to express his thanks uobly and well. Here la the testimonial: Signatured: STERLING. ILL., January 12,1888. To Whom it May Concern : The undersigned, Business Men of the City of Sterling and Rock Falls certify that we are personally acquaint ed with Mr. George E. Rogers, thirteen years station agent of the Chicago & Northwestern railroad at Sterling, and that we have had opportunity to become acquainted with his official and private life. The severance ef his relations with the Northwestern railroad caused us the most profound regret, his administration having been conducted to our entire satisfaction; he having always, while regarding the interests of the company, endeavored to regard the right of shippers with favor and to study the well being of our Section. He was always accommodating la spirit and deported himself worthily in his position.' We would therefore cheerfully ac cord him this Testimonial to his worth, and, unite in commending him to the most forvable consideration of the railroad corporations and others as a gentlemen worthy to fill any position to which he. may aspire, and as a man of strictest honor, integrity and up rightness. , (SIGNATURES).

The experience of Germany, which haa recently been collected, though in a somewhat Imperfect way, by a Prussian government investigation, seems to contain a : jjreat deal o£ Instruction on this point. From returns obtained from thirty out of thirty-five provinces or departments, containing 600,158 manufacturing establishments and 1,582,691 workmen, It was found that 57.75 percent, of the factories kept at work on Sunday. On the other hand, the larger number of the workmen, or 019,564, rested on Sunday. As regards trade and transportation, It was found that In 29 provinces (out of 86), of 147,818 establishments of one sort or another, employing 245;061 persons, 77 per cent, were open on Sunday, and 87 per cent, of the employes worked on that day. This 8tats>f things has led to a demand In Prussia for legislation absolutely prohibiting Sunday labor. With a view to such legislation, a canvass of the persons interested, both employers and employed, has been made. They were asked whether they were In favor of or opposed to total prohibition. It was found that of those consulted In the great factories or stores •only 18 per cent, of the employers and 18 per cent, of the employed were In favor of total prohibition. In the smaller industries only 18 per cent, of the employers and 21 per cent, of the employed were In favor of total prohibition. In trade only 41 per cent, of the employers and 89 per cent, of the employed, and In transportation only 12 percent of the employers and 10 per cent, of the employed were in favor of total prohibition. These are very curious figures, and hove been tabulated by M. Maurice Block with some care.—New York Post Tli« Argentitle Republic'* Indian Question* The remains of the vast tribe of aborigines still occupies the interior, bnt the Indian problem of the Argentine republic was solved in a summary way. There was considerable annoyance on the frontier from bands of roving savages, who used to come novth in the winter time, steal cattle, rob and ravish, and the outposts of civilization were not safe. Gen. Roca, the Sheridan of the River Plata, was sent with a brigade of cuvalry to the frontier to prevent this sort of thing. East and west across the territory runs the Rio Negro, a swift, turbid stream like tho Missouri, with high banks. Fifty miles or so from the mountains the river makes a turn In Its course and leaves a narrow pathway through which everything that enters or leaves Patagonia by laud must go. Across this pass of fifty miles Gen. Roca dug a ditch'twelve feet deep and fifteen feet wide. The Indians, to the number of several thousand, were north when the work was done, raiding the settlements. As spring ckshe they turned to |O southward, as usual, in a long caravan, with their stolen horses and cattle. Roca galloped around their rear and drove them night and. day before him. When they reached the ditch they became bewildered, for they could not cross It, and after a few days of slaughter the romn&nt that survived surrendered and were distributed through the army an soldier*, walk the women were sent into • aoml-Blaverjr among the ranchmen th«y li*d robbed.
