BBKVITJES. —The thermometer ranged all the way from 2 to 10 below early this mom- log. —Chronological: Today la the anniversary of the recognition of the United States, In 1783. —There was a leap-year at Mr. and Mrs. Anson Thummel's.of Pralrlevllle, last night, given by his daughters. —The second party of the Sterling Pleasure club will be held at the Qalt House-Wednesday evening, January 25th. —Lee county has a postofflce named Early Dawn. Samuel (luthrie has Just been appointed postmaster. Early dawn Is a very early beginning. —Mrs. W. W. O'Kane received this morning through A. N. Kelvin, 82,000 insurance, the amount the husband of Mrs. O'Kana held in the Modern Woodmen Society. —Mrs. Alexander, mother of John W. Alexander, and well advanced in years, was taken suddenly ill at 10 o'clock last night, and this morning Is not expected to live. —Last evening John McManus'team broke lose from a hitching post on Third street and started on a big, rapid run down Third street. Several persons and teams narrowly missed colliding with the runaways. —Harry Beeson, 0 year old son of Mrs. Beeson, while hanging on a bobsled yesterday afternoon, was pushed on* by a-companion and was run over by the sled, injuring his knee severely and laying him up for awhile. —A young gentleman took a young lady out sleigh riding last night and stopped with her to pay a call at the house of a mutual friend. When they £ame_out, _the.. horse and cutter were gone, and they bad to get home as best they could without the conveyance. —A large number of the friends of Mr. and Mrs. Hermann Fischer, of Prairieville, made up a party Wednesday night and called in a body at their home, completely surprising and greatly pleasing them by this exhibition of friendly regard, —If we were a school teacher we should vigorously protest against- being called professor, first, because we were not entitled to it and secondly because it is now largely usurped by aeronauts, patent-medicine vendors, leeches, and an infinite number of peripatetic humbugs. —Mr. Abe Caughey caught a team of bay horses on East 6th street early thla morning. - They had on their harness, and looked as though they had been travelling all night. The traces were tied, but the bridles were broken and appeared &a though they had gotten away after being unhitched. He left them at Miller & Go's stables. '—The announcement that a bagging mill Is to be started at Dixon, la premature. There has been talk and lots of it; so there has been about that dam at government expense when the Hennepin goes- that way. We wish there was something to It, for our neighbor's sake; but there Isn't. Ben Shaw says BO, and he knows.^ • • " , —Mr. T. S. Beach, from Dakota. He was up there in all that famous blizzard. At Hitchcock, he had but eighty feet to go to reach his hotel,, yet, although he buttoned up both coats closely, he found aimself not only chilled through, but also that the driving wind bad forced the snow Into his under clothing. Heia not fond of weather with such blowing tendencies. —This morning aoout 6 o'clock, a targe, comfortably dressed farmer (at least he said was) entered the house of Mr, Kneller and made himself completely at home by.,the fire. About two hours afterward Marshal Fitzgerald passing by was called In, and found the man pulling oft hia shoes preparatory to lying down. The marshal found the gentleman difficult of interview, and so told him to "git." He got. —The Dixon Telegraph is 1 'our authority for the statement that Mrs. Judge Eustace has a claim to a considerable part of the land upon which the city of Amboy now stands; also an interest in the site of the Nachusa House. It ia reported that she will press her claims. It is said that Judge Eustace once owned this Amboy property and that it was taken from him unjustly, —The Telegraph is assured that our citizens are Lot afraid of our city run- nog too near Dixon; on the contrary, we are looking to a time when our corporate limits shall run so close to that place, that Dixon will ask to be annexed that she may form part, small though It may be of our then great municipality. However the upper dam is -well •within our present corporate limits. Sterling's area Is very considerable, already. —Mr. Frank Bunn, who has, for the past two years, been the agent for .the Charter engine in New York, has received an appointment in the Union Pacific railroad service, which calU him to Sacramento. This appointment ia more directly In the line of his own profession, and he receives a very lucrative salary. For Frank's take, and fov Uli mother and father's, as well, woo have labored no earnestly to train him to proper manhood and have so well succeeded, Ui* GAZJCTTS it p!ea*&d to ia*m «f hi* t arUmr —We gympathlxs with our Dixon neighbors In their IOBB by fire last night. There being BO little insurance, the loss Is the more grievous. —Let all look to the near future, as one of certain blessing to our people In the way of public improvement-! of divers kinds. —A number of the friends of Mrs. Frank Rife made a birthday surprise party upon her last night, bearing with them presents and refreshments, the latter being served during the course of the evening. —Mrs. Alex. McCloy lad a severe fall, one day last week, upon the pavement on Third street, opposite Mr. W. H. Miller's property. She is now confined to her bed, as we have . heard, in consequence of the fall. —The funeral services of the late Mrs. John N. Stevens will be held at the residence tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon, beginning at two o'clock. Mrs. Stevens was a gentle, kind, considerate, Christian wife and mother who bore uncomplainingly all trials, aud who discharged faithfully all duties during her life time. The memory of that life remains to family and friends to comfort them ,ln their bereavement and as example for their following. —Some candidates are taking time by .the forelock in several of the neighboring towns in the neighboring counties, particularly in that office, which by a sort of unwritten law, yet as po- tentialas though enacted by legislature, endorsed by the general gbvernment and carved in granite, tax collector, Which goes to the man who is thought to need it most. It Is about the only township office which pays a man for his trouble, and when an election comes around in any township and there be not at least two candidate for that office, then know that that is a town in which not a single indigent man lives, but that it is one where peace and plenty are as the manna of the wilderness, to be had for the gathering day by day, Sunday, even, included. —Several complaints have reached this office concerning the practice of bestowing gifts to graduates at the commencement exercises of the Second ward school. The substance of the objection is this, as stated by three or four persons to the editor, with the request that he made public-the-same: The Inequality In the value of the presents, growing out of the difference in the financial worth of the parents, causes humiliation when the presents are inferior In quality. The parties further object, saying that the publicity of the bestowment of the gifts detracts from their merits. They add, that where one gives- of coursa all must give and the only way to prevent a recurrence of the practice is for the board to forbid it. The GAZETTE gives the foregoing, as stated, by request of patrons of the school, and makes no comment itself. Whatever the opinion of the.editor it would not be proper for him to say anything coning the matter this year, at least. We but follow a rule, of allowing all to bring proper complaints before the public through the columns of the GAZETTE. —Our friend and very intelligent writer of an article signed G. W., upon the subject of thermometers in Ibis Issue, says what we endorse, except as to the value of mercury over spirit thermometers. The fact he states, that the thermometer with lowest register is apt to be nearest correct, bears us out In our position, for, without exception, we have observed that in extreme cold weather the spirit thermometers -register lower than the mercury. What the GAZETTE has said as -to the value of spirit over^mercury thermometers referred only to extremes of cold. He, G. W., knows, of course, that water is affected at 88 degrees (has, then, the beginning of freezing); BO mercury Is affected before 89 below is reached We do not recall precisely at what point, but certainly several degrees earlier than when it solidifies. Hence, we have said that mercury thermometers are not reliable in extreme cold weather. Our friend only differs with us as to the point where the mercury ther* mometer is unreliable; that is all,—a difference In degree/only. Pardon the pun. He says thirty-five below; we should say several degrees before that. All other statements of G. W., we subscribe to. —The Bochelle Herald thinks our chances in the future world will be slim indeed, if we don't stop that "dam money" business in the GAZETTE. That's all right. Incidentally, though, H tickles us to tee a few pious persona here and there who really suppose that the use of the word damn i» profanity necessarily. Neither the origin nor the long use of the word by itself, permits any such interpretation. It conies from a good old Latin word which means to condemn, and it is so used by all English writers from Shakspere to our own time. As used with the name of deity, or as associated with imprecations upon the soul of the individual assailed, it Is profane. Understand: it is inelegant by reason of its association with profanity, and hence its use should be avoided. At the same time, and as a fact, the little, word so carefully written with a d, a dash and an n, la not so wicked as those pious folks suppose, who in great good humor take «d vantage of the present dam project to wring in all sorts of plays upon a word which they 'durst not themselves use on ordinary occasions. Of course we do not apply these remarks to Brother Morrla, of the Herald, for he is "up" In English words and their uses, and only Indulges in that pleasant badinage which long time, friendship maker entirely admissible. w e but quote hia words to find occasion to inform those home people woo thought they were •wearing ou the aly that all their efforts have been In vain; that ttolr woold-bo wlokedoeM w*s uo wiexedaM* la foot, tf Mi* Infctflt of the After a very able and interesting lecture by the IIon.N.S.
