THE EY^ITIKG GAZETTE: FRIDAY, JAHtTABY 20 1888. Evening Gazette. FRICAT. JJLV. 20, tsw. ONE CAN understand why Stanford and his associate" Stewart voted for Lamsir. Stanford's crowd own the southern as well as the central Pacific system. Laraar will try all cases In Stanford's southern system, and as Lamar owes his election to Stanford and his "me, too," then It follows, you see, plain as plain can oe, etc. It is rare Indeed, that the GAZETTE impugns the motives of public men, believing that it is only fair to accord to men sincerity in their motives and actions; but Caucus nilea at Washington and when a politician breaks the decree of Caucus, there is a strong motive back of it, a mighty one; for naught but the strongest incentive could strengthen a man to break over party dictation and bring upon himself the reproach of his fellow Senators. Now, these are facts: Mr. Stanford is a railroad king; remember that Mr. Lamar put out a faithful and efficient official, because be decided against land grabbers (railroad chaps); and one of his latest acts was to remove the law clerk of the land office at the instance of railroad kings. Of course, Lamar is where no man durst offer to bribe him and of course Mr. Stanford (with Stewart, "me, too,") had no understanding with Mr. Lamar; but he knows it is a good thing to have railroads friendly to him and to his friends. Mr. Stanford is head of the southern Pacific railroad whose headquarters are at New Orleans. Mr. Justice Lamar will preside over the United States court at New Orleans where all _cases against the said road will be tried. Now, Mr Stanford Is a sagacious man. He knows that judges are made of flesh and blood and that friends are a trifle closer than enemies, even with judges. Here is no bargain and corruption; it is simply proof of man's fear of railroad corporations and his desire to propitiate them on tho one hand, and the all potent, far-reaching policy of a railroad king, on the other hand, who is resolved to have his friends in the judiciary, as well as in the legislative branch of the : government ONE OF the fallacies of the age is the idea that it is healthful to seek a sunny clime in winter. Now we would just ask any One of the readers of this paper to call up the names of those of his or her friends who have thus sought the balmy breezes of the meridional- sun-land. It has been our opportunity to know many who thus fled the terrors ' of the northland's ice-cold blasts, and almost without exception, the benefit was all imagination's own. And common sense ought to prove this: whatever the. climate there must be process of acclimatization, and in warm countries this process is much more trying to the invalid than in colder ones. Again: The southern-winter Invalid is compelled to make his or her way north (oecause of growing heat) before the chill spring winds have ceased to blow. Then the invalid, who has been undergoing acclimatizing for four or five months (a hard job for a well man) must needs shiver us in midwinter, because his or her frame has bee a brought to endurance of warm weather. There is no question but that a person of weak lungs will find relief and cure if he will remove and live in a country of uniform temperature: we know of such cases. But it is only by permanent residence that this is effected. It is a mistake to suppose that malaria is found at the south only in summer. Remember that the extreme south has no germ-killing frosts. Yellow-fever prevails in Cuba the year round ;the Chagree fever may be contracted aa well in January as In August. The southern winter is a winter of enervating tendencies; it pulls on the strength of a well man, even, down there, aa is shown in the universal lack of energy of the residents, whether natives or "Yankles." 8.1 the northern Invalid finds it in much greater degree depressing upon him or her. Just as a southerner by coming north and residing permanently may get driven out of his system the poison of swamp and fever and bog and. have his yellow complexion cleared up to healthy rosy glow; so the weak-lunged, catarrhed northerner can drive away' incipient consumption by permanent residence at the^south. We know this will sound "strange talk" to many; but our observation runs through a quarter of a century, and many's the fair northern rose of womanhood we're seen fade and die In the Indian-summer climate of the south-land, attracted ^hither by the absence of chilling winds and cruel frosts. . ...."•• THB COBDKN CLTTB of England will soon begin, we suppose, to send us documents in favor of free-trade; it does that every four years with astonishing regularity. England is a great .manufacturing country and has half the chips of the world. England la greatly interested in the United States adopting free trade; is so interested that she sends documents upon that subject to this country and baa men •t Washington New York and other cities employed in propagating) these Tiews. N^vr England was our enemy from the time Jamestown was settled until our fathers goaded to desperation threw off the oppressive yoke. Ta«n England began a series of petty prosecutions until in 1812, oar dads found U ne«awary to give her a threshing. After that ihe got to driving and pushing about northwest boundary aaid was new to getting tbreabed in 1547.

It will b« remembered that in the old colonial days she absolutely forbade this people to manufacture anything. Whatever changes we may make in our pnbllc policy, for goodness' sake let us not go to England for an example, or be guided by her teachings. WHT DIDN'T the President send in that very clever message on the Pacific railroad before Lamar was voted on ? Had he done, so, Stanford and Stewart's votes might have gone "'tother way," and Mr. Lamar be minus his job. About BOCK FALLS, Jan. 17, 1888. Editor Gazette: DEAR SIB:— From your remarks about thermometers, I get the impression that you would recommend the general use of spirit Instead of mercurial thermometers. Now, ail the natural philosophies with which I am acquainted from Olmstead down to Rolf & Gillet, state that the mercury is most reliable down to 38 degrees below lero and in a temperature colder than that we must of necessity use alcohol. But as we seldom have use for a lower range than 85 degrees below zero, the general use of mercurial thermometers would lead to more uniformity in reports of temperature. If the ther. mometers are equally reliable the lowest report Is most likely to be accurate for the reason that scarcely any circumstances can make the thermometer lower than the natural condition of the air, while a number -of influences can operate to raise the mercury higher than would indicate the actual temperature of the atmosphere. In 1852 I frequently went the rounds with Prof. Maury, of the National Observatory, Georgetown. P., C.. while he made a record of the temperature from the the thermometers hanging on the north side < f trees in various parts of the grounds, and he told me that he Invariably made his report from the lowest thermometer. There are good reasons for saying that no thermometer can be known to be accurate until It has been known to be tested through the whole scale In comparison with a standard instrument, and about twenty years ago I paid thrflu or four dollars for a large Lebanon tbermometer which was guaranteed to be accurate throughout, and fifteen years ago I hung it on the north side of a tree standing west of my house. Since then there have been three or four other thermometers hanging by it, and all the mercurial thermometers, costing from 25 cents to 81, kept within one or two dezrees of the large one, but I could never find a spirit thermometer that would not vary frotn^three t° Qve degrees." It will be readily seen that the fuel consumed In a house must affect the thermometer on the east side of the house, if the wind la in the west. So the great amount of fuel consumed in Sterling will raise all the thermometers In the east part of the city while the west wind is blowing and vice versa. Another fact that la, often disputed by those who. cannot understand it is that the wind blowing upon a dry bulb thermometer can not make, the mercury fall any Jo wer than in a situation sheltered from the wind. Now, I will make all the old "weather gauges" indignant by slating that the thermometer on the tree west of my house never, in the fifteen years, rose to 100 degrees above zero. Yours, O. W. • The Dam at the Head' of the Rapid*. Editor As a great deal Is said and written on the subject of the upper dam just now, perhaps a word or two more may be in order. The writer has been engaged during the past 'fifteen years on many plans for the improvement of cities and towns in Illinois, Iowa and Kansas; soveral of those plans were carried out at an expenditure of over 8200,000, but no plan for the Improvement of a city or town that he. has ever had any thingr to do with, could promise such • great profits for the amount invested, as the present one contemplated by our citizens. There is in use at the" present dam at the foot of the rapids about 1200 horse power under a six foot head, which power estimated at the cost of steam for the purpose for which said power is used is equal to about 850,000 annually. A six loot head at the location of the upper dam would be worth^ on account of the larger-capacity of the reservlor about one-fifth more, or an annual value in power of 860,000, which by the present plan is to be given to manufacturers who will use it. There is no other.c^ty or town in the state of Illinois that can offer the same Inducements to manufacturers, from the fact that it is the only place in the State where such an Improvement can be made at BO small a cost. The citizens of Sterling and Bock Falls should now fully realize the/act that the carrying out of the present plan means a city of 25,000 inhabitants in less than five years from the completion ot the proposed dam, with all the modern improvements and convlenencea of cities of that size. - JNO.

THE XnoldenU and Crutonu I>eaerll>«d by k Man TTho Bu B««n There—now the StreeU Ar» Kept Clean—A Pointer in Sanitation. There Is probably no country or people •bout whom go many popular misrepresentations exist an the Chines*. This singular Btute of things IB due to two chief causes. In the first place, most newspaper writers on tha subject write first Impressions from very suporflclal dnta, and without understanding the subjects upon which they write. Then again, the Chinese themselves In this country are not disposed to lose sleep, whether they are understood or not. Then many books have bten written by people with political or other kinds of axes to grind, nnd hare given only such facts and Interpretation of fatu as tended to accomplish their purposes. There are many Incidents and customs In the flowery kingdom which have been Ignored In both books and newspaper articles. BTTJKET CLKAjmfQ PROBLEM. I am asked how.the Chinese keep their cities clean. It may be that aldermen might get a hint as to the best solution of the street cleaning problem from the practices of the "hathen." The conditions are so different there and here as to render comparison misleading. In the first place, the principal source of dirt In American cities is absent from Chinese cities. I refer to horses, here BO numerous and such prolific sources of "dirt." There are no horses seen on Chinese streets drawing carta or other vehicles. What few horses are seen are ridden by officials or soldiers. The government owns all horses. Freight is transported by men, either upon their shoulders or on wheelbarrows. The streets ore not over six to ten feet wide, and the sidewalk la in the middle of these narrow lanes. The stores and shops aro open to the street line on either side, and each shopkeeper cleans the street to the center In front of his shop. This Is all the pro- Tifllon for street sweeping. No garbage Is thrown Into the streets, and "ash barrels" are unknown; hence the chief sources of dirt in our cities are unknown. There are no underground sewera, and no need for Them. Residences are provided with other means of disposing of fllth than either dumping or draining into rivers. Every residence, however humble, Is provided with earthen Jars, or large stoneware vaults, into which all otherwise unusable refuse is cast, and the contents of these "family Jars," nnllke onr "family Jara," Is convertible Into cash. No pec- pie fertilize in agriculture to such an extent as the Chinese. This creates a ready market for what we cast in sewers and pollute onr waterways. A common street sign posted over large earthen vessels sunk in thestreets do not warn the "Public" to commit "No nuisance," but re- •pectfully~luvlU5~Uie~T>ublloTicr' 1 Pa5ie" here.." These "peculiar" and odoriferous institutions are owned by men who make It their life business to deal In the commodity which the aforesaid ''public" deposits in the receptacles. This is sold at so much a "measure" to farmers, who carry It to their homes, often many miles away, where it is put into earthen tanks or vats to ferment (reader, hold your nose) until It is required to fertilize growing cabbages and other "truck." This is one of the characteristic institutions of China, and the good results from it are apparent in the yields of food plants. f'Every cow herder carries a basket into which he or she gathers up the "fragments" which are used as the city sower- age for fertilizing purposes. , A UNIQUE SPECTACLE. As one saunters through a Chinese city, his eyes are greeted with what at first forms, to say the least, a unique spectacle. It Is the public patronage of the dealer in sewerage. Is Hie air pure?. Well, hardly. Have yon ever observed the uniformly small nose of the Orientals tai this conn- try t If you have, and will accept my solution of that feature, it la that the smelling organ has been exhausted by inhaling the street odors of China. One thing-can bo said in favor of thus disposing of the sewerage of cities, viz.: It does not pollute the water, which is more vital to health than the air. Then the air has greater self cleansing powers than water, and, taken on the whole, it is the better plan to protect the water than the air from impurities: It is also true that no polsqn Is BO malignant as sewer poison, and that Is unknown in China. Have you ever figured the commercial value of the contents of onr sowers, •which Is daily and hourly,'llke Tennyson's brook, flowing on forever to pollute onr own Niagara river? If so you have been surprised that some method of utilizing this source of wealth has notbeen devised. It Is not my purpose here to dish up figures or statistics on the value of an article daily going to waste, and for which 'the soil of the surrounding country is suffering. Under the existing regulations the Chinese farmer la able to harvest three crops' from every foot of ground every year. In no other way could such a population be fed. Winter wheat rotates with either rice or cotton. During •winter, when the wheat is getting ita 3 start, radishes or turnips are grown on the same soil Then around the margin.of tha ground seeded to wheat, beans or peas are grown. As soon as the wheat is harvested,IT rice is to succeed it, the ground is irrigated and planted with rice. If cotton is to rotate with the wheat, the seeds are planted before the wheat matures, by digging lictween the drills of wheat, and when the latter i» harvested, the cotton plants are well under'growth. Then the •pace between the cotton plants Is dug up, and the succeeding crop is sole tenant. When these summer crops are gathered, wheat Is again sown. Not a ; foot of soil Is left non-productive. 'This state of affairs could not last, but for the rich fertilizing methods, and sewerage la the principal and almost exclusive source of fertilizers. The "Benighted (sic) heathen" ~ has learned lessons in economy and cleanliness from which the American people might learn a thing or two.—Pen Hwa Un in Buffalo News, The Pneumonia Season. ' It'New York had one-tenth as many deaths from any disease that comes tinder the head of pestilence, and typhoid fever eeems to belong there, as It docs from pneumonia, it would be wildly panic stricken and every Gothomite who could get away would be on the run. This wholesale destroyer is busy all the year round, but chiefly, of course, after the cold weather begins. At the present time it Is doing ita fatal work all over the city and adding to the death list every day The doctors are very little more successful in treating it than they were twenty or 'thirty years ago, when It was called either Inflammation of the lungs or congestion of the lungs. It probably is not any moro prevalent than It was then, but we hear a great deal more about it, anyway. The frequent mention of it In tho death notices would seem to Indicate that nearly half tha deaths in the winter are caused by i^. Neither young nor old, feeble or strong bos any Immunity from it.

An occasional fashion Journal, however, as well as dresses, bonnets, shoes, etc., would be smuggled through tho lines or "run the blockade," and a sight of these interesting And fabulously high priced articles, bringing glimpses of that outer world from which she was so completely hedged in, only served as an incentive for further achievements, and to furnish models from which to fashion home made garments. For Instance, my little 4-ycar- old sister became the happy possessor of a small Leghorn chapeau, daintily trimmed with blue and gray velvet, which had run the blockade and cost $50. 'Twas too small for myself, tho eldest of the two, and my mother determined that she would contrive a hat for me which would rival the purchased one In beauty. She selected soft, yellow husks of well -dried Indian. corn_aB-her-materlalto-worfc- from, instead of palmetto leaves, which were very commonly used for plaiting hats. She tore the husks into narrow strips with a pin, and from these she braided a very pretty pointed hat similar In shape to that of my sister's, lined It with shirred pcochblow silk, and trimmed it with a fringed and knotted scarf of the same, which silk was cut from the best remaining parts of a dress worn years before at her "coming out party." Of tho two little hats mine, with, its pretty combination of cream color-and silk, was deemed the most attractive.—Jennie S. tjudson. . • Malpractice In Chin*.. The Chinese penal code provides that when an unskillful physician, in administering medicines or using the acupuncture needle, proceeds contrary to the established forms, and thereby causes the death of the patient, the magistrate shall call In other physicians to examine tho medicines or the wound. If It appear that the in- Jury done was unintentional, the practitioner shall then be treated according to the statute for accidental homicides, and •hall not nn.y longer be allowed to practice medicine. Bnt it he have designedly departed from the established forms, nn<l have practiced deceit in his attempts to cure the malady In order to gain property, then, according to its amount, he shall be treated as a thief; and If death ensuea from his malpractice, then for'having thus used medicine with Intent to kill, ho shall be beheaded. There appears to be nothiUR In the "Celestial" code answering to the laws of "barbarian" nations concerning civil damages recoverable by parties made to suffer from "unintentional" malpractice. — Chicago News. • .

Babcock. of Rock Falls, president of the connty W. C. T IL, when alighting from the train here Saturday afternoon, fell, spraining her ankle and hurting her back. The accident was cansed by the defectfre depot platform. The doctors who were call«J pronounced the injury to the ankle serious. Mrs. B. has the undivided sympathy of our community and her enforced absence from the meetings of the organizations over the county for the coming- weets will be deeply regretted by her many friends and admirers. Notwithstanding this mishap however she gave'to our people on f-'unday night, a temperance address which Is pronounced a perfect gem, one of the very best temperance speeches ever delivered in our town. Dr. Wells' address delivered on the same occasion on the effect of alcohol upon the human system was good and was requested for publication. If you would know how few there are who think for themselves just observe the rapidity and the unanimaty with which members of one of the great political parties have recently discovered that "tobacco is not a luxury but a necessity," and how on the other hand the other party have discovered that we must have "free trade " or our country will speedily go to smash while these same persons stand coldly by and see nine million dollars worse than wasted for strong drink annually and in the same time one hundred thousand of their fellowmen go down to death and to hull without apparently giving the matter a single thought Only four congressmen have already introduced 240 bills for the action of the U.
