Anthony's condition remains unchanged. —Mrs. Charles Dille'r is confined to her bed by illness, and today is quite sick. —Miss Mary L. Moreland will lead the Gospel Temperance meeting held in the Association Rooms Sunday afternoon at three o'clock. —Thermometef ranged all the way from 8 to 16 degrees below zero at 6 o'clock this morning. "You takes yonr money and you pays your choice." —Chronological: To-day is the anniversary of the treaty of peace of 1783. To-morrow is the anniversary of thb death, of Edward Everett Inl805. —Mrs. Alonzo Wilkinson, who went out to California In order that her daughter's health might be benefitted, returned because she did not find that that climate agreed with her. —Last night a number of the friends of Mr. Bennett, who is in the employ of the Williams & Orton manufacturing Co. made up a party and completely surprised him last night. They had a very pleasant time. —Charles Page, a switchman in the employ of the Northwestern at Sterling, had the flngers of his left hand mashed badly last evening about 6 o'clock while coupling cars. Dr. Frank Anthony removed the first finger near the knuckle. —The Hennepin fellows are talking. One of the Chicago papers says they are talking the scheme to death. But isn't this the way to put It: The thing has been talked to death a long time ago, and the fellows are but pronouncing sermons over the corpse V —What Whiteslde lawyer is it that says Oregon should not have a new court house V One of the Ogle county papers says one of our lawyers so speaks and that he is an old crank, too. Our lawyers are not given to criticising the action of other counties. —The Rock Island train (freight-passenger) leaving here at 3:45 p. m., was partially derailed yesterday evening at Sand Station, three cars having been thrown off by a broken rail. No one was hurt and the train finally got to rights and reached Lyndon at 4 o'clock this morning. —The time is soon coming' when every railroad coach, every steamboat, convention, editor and everybody else will be interviewed aa to Presidential preferences, And after all the interviewing Is done, there is likely to be about as great knowledge as before. We saw a man on a train once, who gave In four different positive preferences upon the same day. —The Sub Rosa Society gave another of ita charming entertainments last evening, which was greatly enjoyed by those present. Not even inclement weather like that of last night could keep the people away from ao attractive a spot. The young Indies who get up these parties deserve great credit for their energy and industry, as well as for the decided taste they display in the management of their parties. —Winnebago county joined with Ogle and Lee in asking the Governor to call an election immediately. Now that It is out he will do so, let it be remembered that a mass'convention is not a lawyers convention, and that it is not likely to be so considered, either. A delegate convention is the only possible fair contention,—the ouly one thai the participants In can show credentials and afford proof that they are attorneys with the power and right to vote, j —A letter from Judge JJalley to H. C. Ward, Esq.; secretary of the Whiteside Bar Association says that he baa arranged with Juoge Grinnell to hold the February term of thejcircult court. Judge Grinnell has won great repute as State's attorney, the Anarchists at Chicago having been convicted during his term as prosecutor of Cook county, and in the brief time ha has held the office of Judge, he has received very favorable mention from attorneys and newspapers for his fairness and his ability as such. —At nine o'clock last night, twa of the cars of conductor Boynton's train, which was on its way to Sterling from Shabbona, were thrown oft the track by a broken rail, at a point one-and-a- half miles east of Stone Station. None of the passengers were seriously hurt. The passsengers got on the engine and were brought up to Sterling. The wrecking train was sent down this morning to place the cars on the track. Mrs. Alonzo Wilkinson, who with her children was returning from California, was, we understand, bruised some what —The Rochelle Register claims that Capt Cartwrtght has a larger support of lawyers than any other candidate. How does the Register count that? Wblteaide has expressed for Mr, C. J. Johnson, Carroll for Mr. Jamea Shaw, Lee for Mr. Barge and Ogle for Mr. CartwrigUt The three upper coun- tlaa properly decline to express a preference properly deciding that the lower oountlt* shall name the man. How, then, we gay, do*a the Register make up ita count for Cartwright? Understand: we are not, iuterr«risi'g; we loare tbe matter to the lawyers to •ait)*; but W9 taetti? auk for inform*- —There Is unnsuM quantity of (mow upon the ground; touch more than usually is seen up to this time of the year. The east and west roads are piled up pretty well from the fields around, while all the roads have plenty t? enable the sleighs to glide along to the merry jingle of the bells, bells- bells. —At the editorial association meet- Ing of Ogle county, held at Rochelle a few days ago, the Herald was for Blaine and Lincoln; Polo Press, Lincoln and Harrison ;Reporter, Blaine and Lincoln; Independent," Cleveland and Black; Register, Harrison and Hawley; Observer, Blaine and Harrison; Herald, (Rochelle) Lincoln and Hawley; Clipper, Allison and Hawley. Ogle county in 1880 was one of the strongholds of the Blaine sentiment. If these papers have etot out among the people, their sentiment aa above would indicate a change in devotion to Blaine to some extent, at least. The Register la our authority for the said preferences as given above. —The Warren Sentinel says: "An onomaly in the publUhing business is, the STERLING GAZETTE is too good to exchange with the Sentinel and the Dlxon Telegraph isn't." Bro. Qann who edits the Sentinel don't know us at all; we're "nmble as Uriah Heep, without his .wicked points. If the Sentinel does'nt get the GAZETTE, it is not our fault. Can it be that the postmaster there, imitating the Freeport postmaster,' declined to deliver it on account of its wrapper? -Probably not; for we must think that only one postmaster in northern Hlinois-would do that. In any event, we send the paper, and are sorry that the Sentinel has been deprived of the good reading to be found in GAZETTE columns. While we have to decline, almost daily to exchange with newspapers at a distance, we have uniforrnely agreed to exchange, when tfie request came from offices situated in any of the four upper tiers of counties of this State. —"If we have the dam real estate will go up, and then -I'll have to pay higher rent," said a merchant to us. And we said: "That's all right: if rents are higher, it will mean big increase of trade and you.can the better afford to pay advanced rents than what you now pay." And then he said: "Yep, and don't you know that then there'll be more stores built and we'll have more competition." "That's all very well," say we, "Competition is the life of trade and more stores will draw customers from longer distances. Besides, you that are here already will have the starts you'll have alLyour old customers and you will get more than your share of the new ones, because the new comers will go to shop with those who have most trade.' 1 And then we proceeded to tell him what a business man who is most prominent in the soliciting of money for the upper dam, told us: He said, Merchants will profit right off by it, because it will give employment to men who must live and they'll have to buy groceries, dry goods, boots, shoes and bats and caps. It will benefit the doctor right off, because people will get sick; and the lawyer because papers must be drawn up. And it will benefit the lumber dealer and the brick maker and the hardware merchant and the stone and brick mason and the plasterer and the carpenter and the painter and the day laborer. Finally, he said, Good gracious I why it will help us all right off, but the merchant more directly and immediately. Talk about high rents; why rents are a sort of business thermometer. If they are high, then business ia brisk; if low, no need for many clerks. As for more merchants; why, of course, with the attraction of other people coming in, of course merchants will come too; but the home man who stays here and attends to bis business will have twenty advantages to the stranger's one. So let all take hold of the dam matter and push it to a successful result." —Amos G. France never enjoyed greater prosperity than she does today, although she has not so many statesmen of ability as in some other eras of her existence. In wealth, however, and in general prosperity, she is on better times than ever before; while in art and literature she is at the zenith of her glory. No nation upon earth can point to so many authors of renown, or to so many in all the varied departments of literature. In romance poetry, philosophy and history she has sons whose fame is coextensive with this planet and her schools of art at Paris attract men from all parts,of the world. In politics her people are fickle, because they have not yet recovered from the degradation of the misrule of the Capets, a line of princes with -despotic tendencies who placed their feet upon the necks of her sons and kept their faces In the dust; but those talents which .lift them, up in manufacturers, merchandise, art and literature to a level with the highest of nations and causes them to excel in many, will in time give them stability in government. Napoleon, greatest if not best man of a thousand years, worshipped France because he saw her glory as only infinite greatness could then see it. From his time until now that empire has been adding laurel unto laurel, fame unto fame and glory unto glory and she is destined despite mutations in government to keep front rank with the great power* in their onward march toward highest civilization and enllghtment, We regret that you should have formed diflerant ideas to these, as to our opinion of that great country. Whas we have said in previous articles that savored of unfavorable criticism, related to that single point In which tb'e is weak, viz., the volatility of her people, particularly in governmental affairs. In Nitpoleou'* day the French were great, for great aa he was, not e»en he could have fought »ue«*»»fuUy nil civilization for a seoiv of yvu* except b« b*4 * &*Uau of wUbhim. —This -weathee is bad on the rails of railroads. Broken ones are heard of all around. —There la a goodly number of farmers in town, deopite the snow. Sleigh- Ing is good. —We hope the next editorial meeting will be held at Fulton. Next time well all try to be there, sure. —Sterling Branch Teachers' Institute la in session in the Wallace school building as we po to press. Movements ot Population. DEPARTURES.
