THE EVENING GAZETTE: MONDAY, JANUARY Evening Gazette. o Per T K R 31 H ! «.fc..lO ct«.l ORMVEBRD BT OARIUKB. MOXDAY. JAN. IB, Igsg. WE ACTUALLY hear that one man in Illinois isn't a candidate for Governor. His name (a Payson and he is in Congress. But then he may bo just fooling; as Crcsar was when Marc Anthony offered him the kingly crown on the Iiupercal. Better ask him over , so as to make certain. SMALL POX is doing for the Chinese out in San Francisco what the Anti- Chinese bill conldn't do, viz., making them go rapidly—to Chinese heaven. This fell disease, now so little feared by civilized peoples, is fairly wiping them out, thrir medicines and treatments having no effect upon the loathsome malady.- THE FORTY-FIHST Regiment Kentucky troops claims that it was never mustered out of the service, and its survivors are now holding a meeting at Covington for the purpose not only of .taking steps to be mustered out, but also to colle ^t from Uncle Sam pay for these twenty-one years since they stopped fighting. Each survivor, private, would be entitled to 83,588, if the claim proved good. The colonel Is alive and he is pushing the matter. GEOBQE WASHINGTON said in the first days of the republic that this government must afford, at some time protection to American industries. While men are denouncing what tai iff _ la doing for the country, let none forget that it at leaat gives this government all the revenue it needs, and more, also. Most of denunciation of public measures comes of the fact that they deplete the treasury; but tariff gives us lota and lota of money,— some eighty millions more than the country has been able to spend. Incidentally we may say that Tammany Hall does not endorse Mr. Cleveland's message. "IN UNION is strength." In earlier days j-Esop's Fables were much more frequently read than now, and one' of those fables tells of an old man who called his boys together and showed how strong was a bunch of sticks made fast together, and how easy it was to snap them when separated. Now, our upper dam, project .here is a case of union, of strength. It would not be possible for one man to undertake so great a project, but it is very easy for our people to combine and effect the object. It is really the first instance of concerted action on the part of our people since it is a city, and will have, when accomplished a prodigiously happy effect upon the future of our city. It will encourage citizens to unite together in other enterprises and will be the means of inspiriting them In divers ways. • Conscious strength is the best strength always. To have done a commendable thing, id to do other commendable things. If the dam did not bring a factory here from abroad, it would serve to' induce, men here at home to build factories, and '' €>• —Jim Fryberc: o r n'Rompanlert Dnp- tity Sheriff to Morrison JSatur- <: .y ainl was tin; firr-t to Rut at the hvsj house ami KIP flr*t mm to pet at t?i" fire nt Mrs. Ely's yesterday morning. Jim is as'wide awake a tallow aa one finds in a nine-mile journey. —When weather is vory cold, one observes that a man in walking makes a crunching noise with bla feet. He will observe, too, the same phenomenon in the revolving wheels of a vehicle. This proceeds from Jibe sudden coming together of snow-crystals and their f reez. ing and in science Is termed regelation- —Harrisburg, as upper Sterling was first named, was named for a Captain Harris, who actually came up to the city in a steamboat, and received as part payment of the provisions he sold, a half Interest in the entire town. Had the old gentleman held on [to his property until that upper dam la built, he would be able to sell out and live handsomly upon the interest on his money. —The Kockford Register says the election for judge should be held at once; also that all lawyers, including Judge Brown, so wish it. The Galena GAZETTE on the contrary declares that all the lawyers who wish it held at once, have an ax of some kind to grind. Judge Bailey-wishes it. postponed for some reason, and is early at work providing judges ahead for various terms in the district, that the necessity for an immediate election may not be so great. —Last Saturday evening Mrs. Fanny old woman living in the First Ward, was killed, her breast being pierced by the brass, tipped thill of a cutter, while she was riding with a railroad contractor named Mr. O.

There, too, without a suspicion of Lincoln's coming fame, he began that very year to make scrap book* containing an authentic record of th« growth of events of which the tall, gannt, popular lawyer was soon to be the centra] figure. Col. Nicolay took from a shelf and showed me some of these thirty year old scrap books, which he now finds Indispensable.

They started up Third street and had driven but a short distance when they were run into by two boys, Harry Hendricka and Charlie Began in a cutter and driving a blind horse. Neither horse had bells and neither driver wus aware of the other's approach. Mrs. Tombo sat at the right of Hamlin and the boys drove to the left. The right thill of their cutter struck Mrs. Tombo on the right breast, and dragged her out of the cutter aud carried her six or eight feet. Owing to the darkness no one knew Mrs. Tombo was injured, the horses being frightened by the collision until they heard the gurgling sound, ot' Wood.

There was to be a campaign rally there, and Lincoln and Trumbnll met on the sidewalk and embraced each other warmly. 'Why, Trumbull, you here?' said Lincoln. 'Why, Lincoln, yon heref responded the senator, for the fact that they were to speak for Fremont that night together waa unknown to both. Afterward, aronud the stove in the office of the secretary of state, where I was a clerk for four years, Lincoln was a familiar presence and always the center of the group." "How came you to be the president's secretary?: 1 I asked. .'l 1 ^. 68 at thb Chicago convention," said Col. Nicolay, "and when Lincoln waa nominated I was ambitious to write bis campaign biography.

Ono morning he neglected to , up the bars on the side he had finished, and so drove the tiger* out of the opposite aide of the open cage. The animals, on obtaining their liberty, took different directions, and, crouching in the nearest corners, lay snarling and exposing their teeth, showing unmistakable signs of a moat dangerous fear. That side of the deck was deserted aud the crowd gazed in Interest at a respectful distance. Mr. Flense, the third officer, the second officer and the keeper each placed themselves before a tiger, barring their exit, should they attempt to move away. Fleuse inquired if the tigers hod been fed that day. They had not; they had always been fed on living fowls. Flense called, for three chickens from the hen coop. Taking these be threw one in the face of each tiger. The chickens seemed simply motionless, glued to the spot, so instantaneous was the fixing of t^eth and daws. Flense then went deliberately up to a tiger, coolly took the loose skin of the bock of the neck with one hand and the root of tbe tail with the other, and putting out his full strength, dragged the heavy brute along the deck to the cage and forced it through the open bars. The chicken diversion acted perfectly. Tbe brute had no object but that of retaining its prey. H growled fearfully; Its eyes blazed; iu teeth crushed through the chicken; Its unsheathed claws clasped and pierced its quivering body. Red hot irons would hardly have made it loosen its grip of the bird.

His answer always was, 'I will be careful. But I cannot discharge my duties and withdraw myself entirely from danger of an assault.
