THE EVENING GAZETTE: MONDAY, JANUARY 23 1SR8. Evening- Gazette. I r from their, aa no -from know, «s hln» Per < T K B M » : . .10 eta. I P«sr Ye»*....«5,OO D BY OAJlllISTt. MONDAY. JAN. 23, IMS. Trti: EDITOR of the Standard thinks we "fawn" because we favor "no politics" In judicial elections and thinks that kind of "fawning" may do at the south where the editor of the GAZETTE was "raised", but not for northern Illinois. At the South that kind or "fawn Ing" was never heard of, for there all offices from constable to governor Is made political, and the "fawning" of electing a non-partison judge wouldn't be tolerated a moment; whereas, In northern Illinois, where the Standard editor says such "fawning" will not do at all, it has been the custom for years to elect judges in the district by the said "fawning" process. The GAZETTE when it recommends electing a judge -after this fashion pursues the same kind of "fawuing" as was done at the past three elections for that office. Perhaps the editor of the Standard in his ponderous thought got hold of the wrong word. He ought to be aware that this district has about 8,000 Republican majority and if those of the majority are willing to foregojpolitics and choose judges on. merit, why the dictionary calls that "magnanimity" and not "fawning". The GAZETTE hasn't said a word about putting in a Democrat; the Republican lawyers of this district outnumber the Democrats about three to one; why the mortal agony that the three Republican lawyers will find it impossible to discover a\ Republican of sufficient ability to hold the office, and in consequence be compelled to put in nomination a Democrat? There appears tu us to be a great deal of unnecessary fuming and considerable degree of very decided-iliiberality. In insisting upon drawing party lines. Of course, the Democrats draw the lines wherever they can and run in their own men for judges as well as other offices. And it Is because, the Democrats do this, and because evl< has grown out of the practice that we are of the opinion that the office of judge, at least, shall be filled in such way that the incumbent shall not -owe his place to politicians.—But~we~ have'nt said that we want a Democrat to Oil judge Eustace's chair; with the bar as it is, there don't appear so much chance for a Democrat to get the nomination. The tricks of politics are dirty and smirch judicial ermine as well as coats of Congressmen and governors. MEN WHO have names of animals, or things, or qualities, or properties, as wolf, bun, brown, smith, price, bell, etc., are compelled to undergo an infinite amount of banter and endure an Infinite amount of punning upon their Bald respective names. The father of the editor after he was fifty yearn old and upwards, had* been so annoyed by these old chestnuts of gags upon his family name, that when be was introduced to a stranger of punning or face- tlons tendencies, he would say, "Now • spare me this and that (naming them one after another) play upon my name. I've heard them all. My father told them to me; his father told them to him." We are now forty years old and one year added and have been hearing these same old plays upon our name until we've got so used to it that we're rather disappointed upon meeting a stranger if he doesn't try one or two of them upon us. Honestly, we do not care a snap about the matter; the only thing that we object to is that we're expected to laugh and enjoy them when they are got off in pur hearing. How can we do this, since it has become so monotonous f We knew an old man who had just three stories to tell, and-these three he told to every neighbor who called, it mattered not how often thn same ones came; and what puzzled these neighbors was that his four grown-up sons and two grown:•• up daughters laughed heartily when each joke came in, although they had heard them over and over again every day since their childhood. The mystery was finally explained; the old man thrashed them soundly if they didn't laugh, alleging they had to appreciate a jjjood joke, it mattered not how often they heard it told. Now we don't believe any one can laugh at these old gags, heard over and over again, un. less a licking is the penalty for a refusal to do so. Yes, we are willing they shall be made upon our name as often as any one takes pleasure in so doing. To vary the mouotonj. though,' we would suggest to those who are not . „ ..„„„„ aware of the fact that the word cob water power, and local improvements, has infinitely more meanings than are they would aee it soon enough, and usually called up, when; some fellow profit by it. We repeat, though, what wishes to be funny at our expense. In- we have beforo said, that a city like deed, the only comparison yet instltu- j an individual can take on great mater- ted between us and something else is ,'al growth if it will do so, and will bnt the spike which holds grains of corn use the means at band. When a city the two forming the complete ear of '•-----maize. Yet a little reading or a little knowledge, (but these name-pun fiends are seldom guilty of reading or knowledge) would tell them that beside* its most common meaning, it also means a,top, or head; also a rich covetous person; a lump, or piece of anything; likewise a spider; also a herring; Item a punishment with a strap; also clay mixed with straw; ako a kind of horse; likewise a sea-gull; also a Spanish coin. Will not some of these funny fellows who every time they meet aa wish ua to laugh, fall back upon some of them other meanings and give ua a rest on "corn ihelled off," "good to burn," and others of tb-e same kind. However, aad, anally, tnose read In word* and their uses will know that our name is not cob at all, but eobb, a word which means a baveu, rest, harbor, peaoe, gttatlenes, protiwiiou, and ju*t as different as air i* frota *re, «* val« tiow. wright Is from rite, and as shoe is from shoo—fly, don't bodder me any mon about it. SOME TWENTY years ago, a very young man announced himself R candidate for Congress. He was scarcely knowu outside of hia own county and being so very young, some ot his friends desired him to wait. They knew he had ability, which muat even tually be recognized. But he was in exorable. Said he: . "I passed through collage at the head of my class at flf- teen' although two years previously my family physician declared I'd die beTore I got through. At twenty I received my diploma as an attorney, though friends said, wait. built up a big law practice and wlah to go to Congress. Those who wait ge left." And he was successful, being elected and serving his district severa terms in Congress. The application 01 the foregoing is this: Men must no sit quietly by and wait for opportuni ties to come to them. After the war was over, Henry Watterson was a re porter on exceedingly meager salary the editorship of the Courier Journa became vacant and he by aid of his own push and his friends' help got it,he succeeding the most brilliant journal 1st in America and having to-day repu tation equal to that of his distinguish ed predecessor. But for his resolution he might still be a reporter On alim sal ary. It was grit that took Wbitelaw Reid to New York and nerve tha made him editor of the New York Tribune. Why, there is scarcely a case of success In the United States, but is due to the prompt Improvement o chance. Holding back, caution, fear o failure, have kept down millions o men, with talents to fill honorable sta tions that were offered them at various times in their lives. AVe know two young men who went to a city togeth er, and secured employment of the same kind in the same office, at the same salary. They applied themselves to their employer's Interest. A vacancy occurred in the management of i branch house and it was offered one o them, who, the employer thought pos sessed more executive ability than the other; but the responsibility was grea and the man was young. He was sure of what he had, and being afraid he mlghtrf9il-ln-the~othOT~plffc clined the distinction. It was offered to his friend, and he promptly accept ed it. To-day the latter is head of this establishment and a millionaire. The other is a grey haired clerk in his em ploy, with scarcely more salary than when he first entered. His present em ployer is his friend; but he felt that he could not be trusted in a higher place be'cauae'he had refused the first promotion when it was offered. Now* with a community it is the same as with an Individual: It can seize opportunity as Omaha, Denver, St. Paul -and Mln neapolis have done, or it can pass them by as a thousand sleepy little cities in the United States have done. When a man says to us, in bis obstinate way "This or that enterprise is not possible, we always feel like saying to him, "No It would not be if the city were made up of fellows like you." Any man o average Intelligence can go, to Con gress, or can get rich, or can win repu tatlon in the literary world, provided he will apply himself and wotk to the single object in view. And there is no acity of five thousand in the United States, but can, if its people will, maki itself a city of 25,000 in ten years. Fo; instance: Suppose our people here a' Sterling would build that dam, a city building, and have sewerage and stree rallroad.does not any one know that thi impulse given to business would attract people from the outside who are constantly on the lookout for live cities V And .would not the concertec action of our own people with the additional strength from the outside inaugurate a growth that would not stop short of 25,000 or 80,000 .In five years V Talk about not being too near Chicago! Why, that Is boshl Are not Brooklyn, Jersey City, Trenton and other cities much nearer New York? See the number of cities of 20,000 and upwards that are closer to Boston than Is Sterling to Chicago. We predict that many Chicago factories will seer 'Sterling and other near cities for their location because of the labor troubles in that city. Where there Is great concentration of foreign labor, there Is always more or less trouble. In the smaller cities factory hands are made up of men anxious to Improve their condition, many of them owning property and being averse to trouble of any kind. Let us show Chicago manufacturers that ours is a most desirable place in which to locate. If we had has as many natural advantages as has Sterling, the question does not admit of discussion. Shall we growV It is for the people to say. Give no heed to croakers and objectors; let them drag along after their fashion, and let them be content with present attainments, but let us, whose eyes are opened to the priveleges that are ours, improve these talents to the fullest, that we may receive the approval of our consciences as well as the benefits that us jointly and severally accrue to thereby. M tax to lMk*> *• THERB HAS been the stone age, bronze age, Iron age and golden age- now we are in an age of labor-aaving saaehinery, and the very nature of Our civilization demand* It shall so continue.' More can be aaid in favor than against it; for It multiplies opportuni- ttea for wealtfe and lucre*** the poor »*n'i comforts. A^taonsand things b« N» sever -s-Tfi hn.-l but for the JnfU;)'.^ —J^.,,,, .u coMt of manufacture. Even foodstuffs ara cheaper by reason of it; ninety ypars ago, a man did well who cultivated ten-acres of land; today ht is not extra smart if he tends an hundred. Corn and wheat would be much cheaper but for cultivators, harvesters and threshers. So, too, It does not prevent men from becoming skilled mechanics; there la always demand for this class. And, more, the price of ordinary labor Is higher than before labor saving machinery was introduced. Choose but otto example from among the thousands of the luxuries thatcome to the poor man, viz., the watch. Ten dollars will now buy aa excellent silver time-keeper, that handmade coujij not have been had for fifty. There is one drawback, though, that impresses Itself upon ns almost dally, and that is the danger of maiming. Why, it appalls us sometimes, as we reflect how many cases have occurred under our observation here at Sterling in the past six years. How many men are lame In foot or leg, or minus arms, or bands, or fingers, or have had ligaments wrenched, or have been Rilled outright in that time. Working around' these machines, one is more impressed than ever with the sentiment;"Eternal vigilance U the price ofsafety." THE EDITOR of the Dixon Telegraph has lived at Dixon for more than thirty years, aa editor. For a while he was editor of an Amboy paper, but lived at Dixon. Since I.e began editorial life, children have been born and grown up and married and have had children of their own. and yet his smile is as pleasant and his eye and brain as clear ua when he first began. Affable, good- natured, level-headed he baa recorded the doings of hia people all these years with ability, and fairness such as one rarely finds in this century of "each man tor himself." It fs few places that are blessed ab Dixon with an editor who holds his own year by year; always giving his readers something fresh, sparkling and bright, always showing entire fairness, and always showing growing force and polish in his writing.

VISIT TO THE SEQUIN SCHOOL. 8omi-thlT>K About th« Institution "Whwr Feeble Mlnilrd Children ArB Trained. When observing the unfortunate children born physically and mentally undeveloped It would seem that th»re U litU^ to be done for them, as in many Instance* their tnlud Is a blnnk. They are bronehl to the Scgnin school showing all the terrible signs ot idiocy; unable to articulate coherently, without a ray of intelligence, not knowing how to use feet or hands, and with mouths hanging open. Daring the life of the late Dr. Edonard Scguln he made idiocy a study and became the first successful teacher of children whose mental and physical development had been arrested. His definition of idiocy Is "An arrested development ol body and mind, or both, and not an absence or paralysis ot the intellectual faculties. The idiot is nn infant whose mind, and often his bodily powers, have remained in the infantile condition, and h« can be successfully treated by a training similar, but more protracted, than, thai by which the ordinary infant !• developed into an active and Intelligent child." A morning passed among the ten children now under treatment in the Segnln school convinces one of how much can be done In transforming these poor ereatnrea into normal children; those who have been under tuition for two or three yean are not 6ven"pecullar;"Br8 helpful «nd eager to learn, and have BO altered in their expression an not to be recognized ai tha same beings. Mrs. Seguin says: "Three of my pupils, and those not the most promising in the beginning, have, after three years of instruction, been so far restored that one has entered a school of high reputation, and Is making good progress among children of excellent intellectual ability; another made a European tour without an especial attendant, and a third, under extraordinary difficulties, has become a moat lovable and Interesting Child," The first lesson in the morning was counting and making change with money, which was accomplished readily by tha pupils somewhat advanced. All kinds o] coins were laid on 'the table, and these were distributed In different sums, which the scholars counted and made change with as requested.

It is no easy thing to conduct a newspaper in a large city where the identity of the editors is not known; it is infinitely more difficult to do so In a small city, where the editor is known and seen of everybody, and where he has to take sides on every question that cornea up.

The Hot Creek Indians have a summary way of treating their physicians when they fail to cure their patients. The relatives of the deceased are Justified In killing him. A case of the kind occurred recently. Miss Madge related how the woman that washed for them lost her husband, and before ho died he told his wife that he could not rest in peace unless she killed the doctor, an old squaw who had practiced among them many years. The considerate wife left hia bedside just at dawn, and, stealing into the wigwam of the doomed woman, dropped a slip noose round her neck and jerked it quickly tight, so that it was impossible for her victim to utter a sound louder than a hor- rlblo gurgle. The wife Afterward described the whole ghastly circumstance with a fidelity that proved her keen enjoyment of the agony o£ the wretched squaw. She explained in vivid pantomime jnst how she continued to tighten tho noose by a peculiar twitching motion, while she dragged the writhing creature round and round the room. When she had at laat ceased to struggle, the wife returned to her appeased lord, Who breathed hia last with u tranqulliz- Ing sense that he had brought about a noble vindication of hia death.—Ninetta Eames lu Overland Monthly. . The "Lofely Maid." The German who was driven from the Quintans hotel by the coarse table manners of the British and their habit of putting their knives in their months, during one of his first strolls In Capri saw a beautiful girl la the old costume of the [aland bending over the edge of a [rightful precipice. Hurriedly advancing, the kind man. In his best German-Italian,, besought her to leave the dangerous spot. But the girl would not stir, only sadly shook her head.

The subject of his lecture was: "Has de World Advanced Fur 'NufTr' Ho had been before the committee on inquiry, and had answered all questions, and he would now be brought In and given every opportunity to acquit himself with honor. It was a subject of deep interest to every member of tha club, and it was hoped that each and every one would pay the closes^ attention to the stranger's remarks. * The committee on reception and abduction escorted the Hon. Blvins into the hall amidst profound alienee. He was a stately looking man of middle age, having a cast In one eye and some trouble in one of his knees. He bowed right and left with the grace and suavity of an emperor, and upon ascending the platform gently observed: . "My frens, I do not come bofo' you aa an impostor nor yet as an adjudicator.
