J. Miller, has been confined to her bed for about a week with malaria, but is now convalescing. ~—Complaint: that the public trough oy Hause's being full of ice, 'overruns water upon the pavement making it slippery. Several persons fell there last night. —Who would believe that fifteen varieties of wild animals are yet to be found in this county, and who can name them to us? It is correct and true that there are so many, although it was a surprise to us when we enumerated them.- Let some- one JryLhis hand at naming them, —The biggest yarn that has yet come in to us about the present cold weather was received this morning. The felio w solemnly avers that he made his stove go hot that the coal melted, when it at once froze solid. And there he Bald, stood the stove, red hot up to the stove, pipe, yet not giving out a particle of heat, because all the coal was frozen into a solid mass. —The Harvey well is 1685 feet deep, the Pennington well is 2200 feet deep, the Morrison'"well 1200 feet and the Sterlitg Water Company well is a trifle lees than 1200 feet deep. The Morrison and Pennington wells do not (low above the surface. These four are the only artesian wells in this county, if we except one or two wells of a depth of a few feet which have a surface overflow. —Tha funeral services of Mrs. Fanuy Tombow will be held at the residence of Mr. Benj.

The officer making the arrest found the chickens in the possession of the offenders. The justice held them each in 8100 bonds to the February tf rm of the circuit court. Unable to give bonds, Deputy Sheriff Drake took them down to Morrison, where they will board with Sheriff Keefer un- till that time rolls around. —This morning was colder than it has been for many years. Thermometers ranged all the way from 26 to 35 below. There Is no question but that the latter figure truly represents the condition of the weather. It was cold, dencedly cold. Everybody felt that way; nobody had the slightest Inclination to dispute the fact that it was cold. Indeed it was cold all day yesterday. Our home thermometer in the warmest part of the day never got higher up than 6 degrees below zero The two days may go together as evidences of what weather can do when it wishes. Yesterday morning It was 28 degrees below zero. **• •*• •*• **-* Xeggins, Hosiery, •.* %* V *** *** «. Gloves, -3 Mitten Gorsets, Bustles, !*!! - — — — - - — Handkerchiefs, Mufflers, —One more weather yarn has been handed to us. A man living on Fourth street declared that at breakfast they could have no coffee because the kettle froze solid and burst, although there was a blazing hot fire in the stove and there was no damper between the vessel and . the flames. This extreme weather shows that intensely as it acts upon one physically, it does not interfere in the slightest with the imagination. —Trenton rock is found in all parts of this county. It is divided into the Trenton, Utica and Cincinnati. It erops out in .Jordan township, at Dr. Pennington's, but usually it lies at a depth ot from 900 to 1300 feet. Trenton limestone, which is supposed to furnish natural gas, has but few fossils. A theory ha* been started that the limestone yields the gas onfer after decomposition has begun,/Knd that the borings into this rock for water have let In air which begun that work of decomposition. —Charley Bent, of the Morrison Sentinel, has wellnlgh spent bU days upon that paper. Time has made white his hair, but be has not yet reached middle age; still H was thirty years ago that he began work a* apprentice upon his paper and has tugged away ever since except when he was in the army and for a brief time that ha concluded to withdraw from editorial life. His paper enjoys the distinction of owning its own oflice building. Charley is the oldest printer in the county, when service in the county 1* considered. . — "We are looking for two kinds ot men, not with lantern as old Diogenes ata~wlrearhe"~wanted an~ honest man, but with eye of observation. One of these is the man who can slip down upon an icy pavement and pick himself up all without being angry; and the other is the man who can see another man fall down without laughing at him. There may be both of these classes in the world, but we never saw either of them. And It Is'nt because we haven't tried to find the.u. Even the man we spoke of the other day, who, falling down and losing his dinner, got up with a smile and pleasant words, afterwards told us that that was all assumed and thut .he never wanted in his life to do any one thing one-half so bad as to lick one of the bystanders who laughed at him. One's natural position is upright, and, when he is made to assume a different attitude, suddenly and without being consulted, he is bound to get in the same frame of mind as Mr. Pickw ck was his first night in Fleet prison when one of his roommates snatched off his nightcap and placed it upon the head of another roommate who bud a dirty face. So man Is sympathetic.—keenly so. He isn't glad when his neighbor falls down; but the suddenness of the tumble and the awkwardness of the attitude sets him to laughing before he is aware of It. —This morning wa.t cold. In the GAZETTE office water that was poured upon the type within four ff-ft of a red-hot-cannon store froze solidly, and it dpm;iml.~<? 11i« r nnr! '\T "" rit •"'"''.:'.•-'. erable hot'water to thaw the little bits of metal, so that the printers might distribute them in their several boxes. The type setters had to run to the Ore every few minutes In order to keep their fingers from freezing. Although two boys were kept busy attending the three huge stoves of our office, still up to nine o'clock they were unable to get the room to a temperature that was moderately comfortable ten feet away from the stoves. . Men on the streets scarcely were able to recognize one another, so frosted were they, If they had any beard or mustache, or if they wore mufflers of any kind. It would have been difficult for one to keep from freezing had he remained outdoors for any length of time. We have heard of several cases of freezing of noses, ears and hands, where their owners were exposed but a very short time. Weather of this kind might become bearable in time, but it would demand much time for it to become so. It is a mistake to suppose that it is always so cold in the Arctic regions in winter; on the contrary, it does not remain so low even as 20 degrees below more than a few days, and greater extremes, say from 35 to 50"below are of very brief duration. Up there, however, It is the winds which cut and pierce.- A morn- Ing like this with the thermometer 35 degrees below zero would have been absolutely unbearable had there been a big wind, The Turner Society will give a grand masquerade ball in Mmnnerchor hall January 10, next.

AWD SEE. —In another place we record a pretty tough story of coal freezing In a red hot stove. Here is one received later, that U worse, even, than that: A citizen here tells us that early this morning, he was. very thirsty and drank two glasses of water. Later he suffered severely from a sort of cramp in his stomach and went to a drug store for an emetic. After swallowing three or four powerful doses, the' medicine had due effect, but to his Infinite astonish- ujfint he ejected from his mouth three or four handsful of ice-pellets. The water h9 bad drank had frozen in his stomach. The GAZETTE does not vouch for this story; but the man who says he had the experience does. •If Mr. Hamlln had been on the alert Saturday night, the accident which deprived the woman, Mrs. Tombo, of her life, might have been prevented. There was sufficient light for him to observe thosa approaching him. The GAZETTE has time and again referred to the fact that a great many people drive without bells, and that such practice la dangerous, par' ticularlyin the dark. We nite that the coroners' jury referred to the danger, and we learn that an ordinance will be presented at the Council meet- Ing to-night requiring all persons driving sleighs to provide themselves with bells. It would seem that people do not need such enforced rules; all love life and it i» terribly- risky to drive along in the snow without noUe—dan- gerous to all-pedestrian* aa well as those driving. But Just the same, there are in»ny who do need just such a compulsory edict, and such an one ought to pass and at ouce, No ueed of referring it to a committee to be reported upon » week or two ftfter ths b«U laft UA. —Add up all the talk of people and subtract therefrom the weather, and the remainder would be less than half the amount of the sum subtracted. This is easy to understand; instead of being creatures of circumstances, we are creatures of the weather. Go south and see how soon you become influenced of the enervating effects of an uniform temperature of 80. So, one finds a ten-below-zero air bracing and joyous. In rainy weather one Is depressed in spirits and In dog-day weather Inclined to be bilious. Many men can tell the condition of the weather before getting out of bed in the mom- ing' Yet much as men talk of it, the conversation is limited to its conditions,—whether hot or cold, wet or dry. They do not attempt to explain the various phenomena connected with its changes and the causes leading 1 thereto. Scientists do, but as we have said' In a previous article to be found elsewhere, their investigations afford them little knowledge. Apropos of the weather, we would say that ai late as midnight of Thursday night the thermometer was 34 degrees; seven hours later it was 20 below zero—an absolutely wonderful change.

Hence, we endeavor to let every number contain some one article at least, bearing upon the advantages of our city as a residence for those who wish to make money. And, again, we are not inclined to fill up the paper with nonsense or make exaggerated statements of unimportant affairs for that reason If the GAZETTE had i-nly a local circulation it might not be amiss to run in small Jokes and lots of small talk about this, that and the other one; but going out as It dots all over the country, it is our constant aim to have our paper appear at best advantage. We know that people at a distance judge a community by ita newspaper; hence we never make up a single number, we never write an article except we have in mind the thought that that very article might catch the eye of some one and he be led to Judge of the people by it. We know that our people wish to attract capital here, and while conscientiously seeking to do our best toward gathering the best readable matter for our home people and to give them all the news yet we also labor earnestly, as well, to please the strangers at a distance and induce them to come here Our motto Is, always do your best your home people are entitled to it au< ought to have It and shall have it; and all other ambitious towni doing the! best through their local papers to aU tract people to their reapective places it U our duty to do our level beat tl-a we m»y enter into «ucc«wful ooinpeti- wltfc tited, ' The Boston Store is the place to go to in all seasons; for it keeps all goods In season.and has no old stock to offer.
