Mrs. B. was born at Jatskill, N.Y., Sept. 20,1803, and Mr, S. at Cornwall, Conn., May 2i<, 1799. 'hey were for many years residents of Sterling and vicinity. ^-Several of our friends are so kind as to send in in papers containing ar- icles which they think we might desire o see. We are always grateful for uch favors. Even if we do not use hem in their entirety, or refer to them, bey give us information which in ome way is finally imparted to our eaders. . —The illness .of a carrier not report- id at this office until after nightfall :aused a number of the subscribers of he EVENING GAZETTE on one of the outea to miss their papers on Thursday. Had it been reported, we should have been able to deliver the route, despite the absence of the carrier. But he fault lay with the carrier and not with the office. —In A. K. Hendricks' north show window is a frost freak that attracts much attention and evokes many thec- ies aa to its cause. He boa porcelain etters on the window, and one of these ,nd one only, an 8, is reproduced in the heavy frosting aofce five inches below nd two to the right of the porcelain etter. The puzzle Is why the one letter only should be formed in the frost- ng. One says it is the sun, another ays it is deflected wind which causes t. '•'.-. —Several newspaper brethren have got off upon us all the old gags about ;aa, comparing our utterances with ;hat fluid, one going so far aa to state ibat the best place to bore for it would be Intj this building. We accept the compliments, although they .were not ntended as such, and beg to say that Uiis fluid, the artiflcal, lights thousands, of cities, making it impossible for ihleves and scoundrels to play their trade after nightfall; so as long aa we are in the GAZETTE, we purpose that ta light shall reveal knowledge of what s good and expose what is wrong. Natural gaa la booming Plttsburg, ^iey and other cities; so'the GAZETTE shall boom its city • and contribute to the prosperity sure to come. -A letter from a niece at the south says: "I suppose you folks have lots of snowballing." And that Is the southern idea of it Snows fall so seldom down there that when they do come, the snow remaining but a few hours, stores close, schools take a holiday and everybody turns out for fun. The snow being In a meltlugshape and the air warm, they have a good time of it pelting one another in great good Uumdr, They cannot conceive of the dry, powdered atufl that crunches beneath the heel and that grind* beneath the runner* of sleigua; or of the crisp, cold air that would freeze one's ex posed hand In a few momenta. Nor can they think of the eaonotiiay of two •f three or four or S^afraonUta of ooa- —We shall be greatly obliged if cler gymen will send us in their church no ticps not later than 10 o'clock Saturday morning. When they come in later, it interferes with our plans for the day, and makes it more difficult for ns to get thftn m correctly and in their proper place. The GAZETTE ia pleased to publish these notices; and only speaks of the matter for the single cause assigned, viz., that when brought in late it Interferes with our day's work Of course, some of the notices are always In on time. —An exchange urges the putting forward of a Whlteside man for a State office. It costs more time, more money, more patience on the part of friends of the candidate than any State office is worth. Whlteaidecan and ought to join in with other Northern Illinois counties to nominate northern Illinois men for Governor and Attorney General; but we know that in order to nominate a Whlteside man some two or three persons would have to travel all over the State, that a thousand or two-letters would have to be written, that trades and combines would have to be made, and lota more of disagreeable duties performed. Indeed, to succeed in winning a State office, one must begin several years in advance,—getting acquainted every where and placing prominent men all over the State under obligations to the would-be candidate. —The ministerial association of Sterling last Monday adopted a resolution which was published in the GAZETTE of that day, deprecating Sunday fast driving as pernicious to morals and subversive of the good of the community. There is disposition in many quarters to sneer at anything like a strict observance of the Sabbath; yet Shat decalogue which God handed to Moses as he stood on Sinai hidden from •ils volntlle people beneath, Is In aa full force and effect as when they were first carven In the rocky tablet wMch contained their record. The 'fourth command in this law is; "Thou shall keep he Sabbath holy; six days ahall them work and do all that thou hast to do, Dut the seventh day Is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God, and in it thou shall not do any work, tbou, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor the stranger that is within thy gate." The beast of burden as well as the highest creature, man, is included In the interdict, and Sunday pacing ;akes in the horsesTas well as the man. Many who indulge in this pastime, may do so without, moral hurt to themselves, but the example of such conduct is bad for the young, who reason .hat if it Is proper for older people to do this, they may projit;rly do what they ploase on Sunday, u hile the day s not designed to be one In which one should remain at home and be racked of a quickened conscience; still, one can readily understand that fast driv- ng, whooping and hallooing are not in consonance with the accepted idea of Sunday observance. Sunday is a day of rest; man's nature demands it. He and the horse, too, live longer, when when they so observe the Sabbath. Apart fjwm any other consideration, the practice is most objectionable to our Christian people, and St. Paul went so far as to say, "If eating 'meat giveth my brother to offend, I will no onger eat meat." —Ohambersburg, Pa., is a horse market. Tnat is to say, there are dealers here who buy horses at various points n the west, (many of them borne from Sterling and vicinity), put them, out to •feeders" to get into a good condition and then dispose of them to buyers ast year more than a million dollars worth of horses were thus sold. Now. f Chambersburg can find this business profitable, and It does, ai the dealers are all making money, how much easier would it be to make a horse market of Sterling V A company composed of iwo or three good men with capital, might buy horses for a region an hundred or so miles to the north, south and west of us, and have them here for sale ;o eastern and other buyers. The Chambersburg papers take pride in the 'act that there is no jockeying done; horses are there sold precisely as they are, and it is the reputation that these hambersburg dealers have won that enables them to sell so readily and at good prices. So, if a horsS market ware started here, to be successful it should be .conducted on principles of .ntegrity. Eastern firms are here many times a year buyinsr up horses, spend- ng a week or • more every time they ;ome. If there were a horse market here, these eastern dealersjcould buy at once what they wanted and depart without delay,, This business IB one that there is a fine opening for; because our farmers are devoting more attention than ever to horse raising, and if Sterling had a horse market, it wou'd >e added stimulus to horse raising. The old -jockeying business is a thing argely of the past. Indeed "scrubs" are so scarce and knowledge of horses so general and so thorough, that nothing could be made out of that sort of deal- ng. Hence, men going into horse buy- ng would have no difficulty of that tind to contend with. Now we assert boldly, that if men at Chatnbersburg can get rich by coming out here and auyiug horses and taking them to their homes and sleeking them up, having to pay freight there and buyers 'afterwards having to pay from Chambers- buig'to home of owners, that by much more, men, right here on the ground; can make it, being able to buy at all times, at sales, and when owner* are hitrd up for money, etc. The GAZETTE baa in the past five or six years suggested many plans of money-making, but it has not suggested • single one that offers so certain large profits a* that of buying horses for local and eastern market*. What men urci there who will taia holdlof this suggestion > They will bav« good o*us« if they will, aftsrwani* to th»ok too QAZKTTK for brought it to Ui»ir a«U«*.
