He's ready for the new law, anyhow. —The thermometer shows a "very decided change in the heat condition. This morning was very pleasant. —rJorn to Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Johnson, this morning, a girl. Mr. Johnson is in the employ of the Novelty Iron Works. v x ' —The pastor otthe Christian church at Erie has a queston box at the door of the church, and Sunday evenings he answers the queries. , —The Morrison Herald predicts the speedy raising of the remainder of the dam money and the construction of the dam. That's the size of it, George —Mr. Noah Loux sends us an account of the cold weather of the year 1810,—the year without a summer. We have previously published an account of it. —We are informed that some of the parties owning lands which.would be submerged by the tipper dam, this morning made transfer of their said lands to the npper dam committee. —A telegraph message from Milledgeville says -that Louis Reitzel was caught In the bolt gearing of Goshert's mill this morning and badly mangled. The message further said that he is not expected to live. A message received this afternoon jayaihatJvhlleJielLdaTigerpusly and painfully hurt, that Mr. Keitzel will recover. He Is brother-in-law of Mr. Goshert. . <• i —Mr. and Mrs. Callighau gave quite a pleasant party on the birthday of their little daughter Mabel, which was much enjoyed by those present. The guests gave her many pretty ai- tlclea, as tokens of their love. —More complaints come in about ice being taken from the immediate proximity of the drive path over the river. The complaining parties say that people crossing by night are in danger of getting into the river. —The funeral of Mrs. Eliza Alexander, which took place yesterday afternoon, was attended by a large concourse of friendsT many^coralngr trom long distances, Elder Mason officiated. The remains were interred in Sterling cemetery. —A night or two ago some fifty of the friends of Mrs. Adam Heckman got together, having previously filled baskets with nicely cooked food and made a "surprise" upon her. The evening was spent pleasantly, and supper was served by the guests. —Miss Ella McCue gave a very pleasant card party to forty of her young friends last Friday evening. Refreshments were served during the evening, after which games' were indulged in until a late hour, when 'the young folks departed, all claiming to have bad a very enjoyable evening. —Mr. August Frank Is In receipt of a letter from Mr. E. W. Edson in which be refers to the extreme cold weatber experienced in Northern California, it being down to zero when be wrote. He says, though, that is extraordinary, He Is greatly pleased with bla new home. 'Mr Edson expresses the h*pe that some of the proposed enterprises on foot here will be consummated soon. —Quite a number of Sterling people went out to Pralrleville to bear Rev. Dr. Robinson lecture. His theme was the all-important one of education and he bandied bis theme witb decided ability. He was for years identified witb educational interests and is enthusiastic upon, the subject. TbePrai- rieville people, with their accustomed hospitality, served an excellent supper to all the people who attended. —The Horseman r of a lata issue, gays that "Col. J. D.Morrissey, of Denver, has recently refused an offer of 810,000 for a one half interest In Els stallion Suprrior." will be remembered, Is from Larchwood stud, having been reared by Mr. Sanboru. and sold by htm to Col. Morrlssey two years ago this month for 86,000. Mr. Sanborn still owns bis full brother, Benefactor, which imimal, In his opinion, is, for stock purposes, quite as valuable as Superior. —Mr. Thoa. P. Bowman, for six years bookkeeper in the First National Bank, of this city, baa resigned that position, and accepted one in the Omaba National Bank. While tbe board of directors of the First National Bank are pleased to know that he has bettered bla financial condition and hence accepted his resignation, at tba same time it regretted parting with him, because he discharged bis duties witb faithfulness, honesty and ability and bla life was such as to wtn for him tbe personal regard of tbe several rnetaben of tb« board. He U a young man of most correct hablta of life and possessed of ability that will sustain him in uiy poaitlou to which be may bo called. The UAZKTTB would unite with the board ID wishing Mr. Bow- uiau all Btuscea* fWd happioeea ill bil fiuUt ol duty, —Mr. Z. T. Gait is convalescent. —Hare a care; guard against colds in this weather. —The snow was "givey" this morning, showing an above freezing point reneh of the thermometer. —Some more Sunday fast driving Is reported for yesterday. The GAZETTE must decline to publish names of alleged offenders, as requested to do so. —A very prominent citizen said to the editor today: "The . GAZETTE'S 'booms' of Sterling and the data has caused a wonderful advance in the price of real estate in the 'overflow' region." —Mr. William Reagnn, a brakeman on ti,. Sterling freight, fell to tho ground this morning trom a moving car. He escaped serious Injury, by alighting upon his feet, but he was badly jarred. —Quite a number of Whlteside lawyers have requested the Governor to postpone the calling of an election. Some have requested that it be postponed to April only, when township elections are held. Aud still the GAZETTE thinks It should not be postponed and that the Governor las no right to postpone.—Postmaster general Dickinson has issued a circular letter to postmasters Instructing them of. the change in the law In relation to third and fourth class matter (that Is to say, circulars, Ac., and merchandise) placing it where It was before. That Is to say tbe wrappers and envelopes containing circulars, pamphlets, merchandise, &c.,,may contain printing and cuts upon them, out may not contain writing other than the address. Some of the farmers at Saturday's meeting gave estimates of the value of their lands which surprised the natives. Such prices would „ cause won- deriul increase of taxes, if the assessor returned these lands on the basis of price named. Of course, though, in an open meeting like that, the owner of land Is not likely to understate his price.. It is probable that a visit to the owners singly, and a fair talk with them will result In a considerable re- duction'in their price. ; —Ben Bressler has begun digging for gas, or oil upon his place, at the polat indicated by the GAZETTE in two or three articles -re f errln g-to -the-su bjectv- The GAZETTE has said, and repeats it, that the Elkhorn creek region,v will some day yield rich mineral, or oil or gas supply. If Mr. Bressler's neighbors would turn In and help him a bit, it would be the right thing. If be strikes something rich, it will enhance the value of all their lands. He Is'hard at work, striking down after one of the precious fluids. —Dancing school on Tuesday evening. We are requested by Mr. Sweet to state that none will be admitted to the dancing hall except those holding tickets and those accompanying them as escorts, and tbe parents of members of the class. . He says, it will be seen at a glance that it Is not right for some t<F insist"upoiT" receiving Instruction for nothing while others pay for the same. This rule will be enforced.' All parents of members of the class, as •well as escorts are welcomo;'others will not be admitted unless they purchase tickets for the course. —There is a house near one of our depots, which has to be kept. warmed every night, and it is a rendezvous for tramps. Last night there were six or seven of'the vermin quartered around the Ore, sleeping upon planks, seemingly as comfortable as though they had beds of elder-down. One of them was not so comfortable. He had gone out for a pail of water (about 2:30 a. m.)and missing his way. fell Into the sewer, wetting himself through and through. One of them had on but two garments, and they both of cotton,—the pants being merely overalls, and the jacket a kind of blouse. He had on no. stock- Ings, no shirt in fact nothing but the two garments Qrat named, a pair of shoes worse for wear and an old cap. How he can travel from town to town in cold weather with such meagre supply of clothing surprises us. It seems that their favorite way of traveling now la to get into a car loaded with hogs and secure a first-class ride upon their backs, they claiming that the heat from the bodies of the porkers keeps them'as though in a Pullman or Wagner coach. The stock men do not go forward to look after the hogs- and so they are secure front, detection. Tax books for Sterling township are now open at Sterling National Bank. Parties are requested to pay their personal taxes on or before Feb. l«)th. WM. A. CONNELLY, dwtf Collector. James M. Fitzgerald's Restaurant. Meals at all hours; oysters In every style.
