McCloy still continues quite 111. It Is reported that she has the typhoid pneumonia. —Pati"Spalding had his head badly cut in a fight with coal beavers lasi night. Dr. Frank Anthony dressed the wounds. —Parties can attend the dancing class by bringing a single admission ticket to-night. Mr. and Mrs. Sweet will furnlBhJthe^muslc. —A little daughter of Mr. Jacob Elck fell from a high chair upon the kitchen stove this morning and badly burned its face and hands. —Dealers In sleigh bells are selling great many of these jingling bells, people are getting ready for the new ordinance, which goes into effect on the 20th instant. —Mr. James Rao's little boy on Friday evening swallowed a penny which odged in his throat and caused him in finite pain. Dr. Anthony was called in and removed the coin, but the little fellow suffers considerably. —Miss Maggie Dillon gave a leap year party last evening to a number of ler young fneuds at the residence of lersister,Mrs.E E. Breneman. Those >resent were mostly schoolmates of Hiss Maggie. The youngpeople;enjoy- ed themselves very much Indeed. -The child of the late Mrs, Andrew YVarrick (Jennie Hears) died yesterday at Detroit, as a telegram to Its grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Sears, Bald. Chls death is but another sorrow to the parents of Mrs. Warrick, to 'whom death has brought many of late years. —We hope to get i ut a special ed ition before the campaign fairly opens, and give the names and address of the can- lldates for State office. Of course, it would not be possible to get them all n a single issue of this paper. We might Tun~them~along-like-aT5onttnued tory for two or three weeks and thus omplete the total. —This morning Marshal Fitzgerald onnd five or six tramps, some of them laying euchre, in one of the Northwestern buildings, and he sent them on heir way. By the way four or five arties who live off from the heart of he city, complain that tramps are )0therlng them begging for food. Again, we say, tramps are not objects f charity and to feed them Is to put a iremlum on begging and petty crime; or there Is not one of these miscreants ut will steal, or rob, if be gets a banco. If parties will report' tramps romptly to the Marshal, he will cap- ure and hustle them off. —Mr. C.E. Partridge, who lives in the eat end of the city, is under the im- ression that he has a-natural-gas-well, he water affording indication of gas f some kind. If the gas is really, there n any quantity, the filling of a tumbler 1th water and suffering it to stand or awhile, then pouring the water off nd quickly applying a match to the nterlor of the glass, will demonstrate t; for If present, it will give forth a ame for a second or two. It may be lat it U but carbonic acid gaa. This aat is frequently found in springs and rom the description given of it by our nformant, we should incline to .the no- ion that it is carbonic acid, rather ban the much sought-after natural aa. . -Mr. E. J. Boss's son is suffering onslderably from his arm. It will be emembered that he injured his arm at Geneva some little time since and a byaiciau of that place bound it up as lough it were broken. It is stated hat it was bound too tightly. He was rought home to Sterling and the ands removed, when it was discovered hat the arm was not broken at all and here was no necessity for. apply ing the landages, which by reason of stopping he circulation of blood and abrading the skin in one place, has..caused not nly great pain to the lad, but has also put his arm In such shape that it is ikely to be some time before it heals, inhere is considerable indignation in be family against the Geneva physician who, aa la charged, showed incom- petency in his treatment of the injured member. ; —The law aaya the governor shall appoint a successor to a judee, if the vacancy is within leas thanu year of regular election for said office; but that IB shall order an'electlon If it be more ;han that time. Does any one suppose for a moment that the law con- jemplated that any governor would for political reasons postpone an election [or six months ? and that, too, in a dis ;rict which for six months prior to the death of the judge was deprived of his services? If it did, then it would have said, ''If a vacancy occurs within a year ;he office shall be vacant until said regular election;" for If the Governor do not call the election until June, it will iavb been in effect a "year's vacancy) and that, too, in a district that has suffered greatly for years because of the absence of one of its judges upon the appellate bench. It U now an open secret that the postponement is asked for in order to make a political election of it, and BO "freeze out" a certain candidate. If it had been the practice to elect a partisan judge, it wouldn't look go bad; but wb«u it Is neeesaary to retard justice and cripple the district In order'to establish the innovation, it looks bad; aud cannot fall to reset upoa those who b.a?e be*a feMUWtt*uU} in bringing U »Jxtat. — A number of Sterling people too advantage of plennnnv weather, moon licrlit and splendid sleighing, to driv over to Dixon, where they had snppe at the Nachusa. —The Sacramento Daily Record Union has the following account of th cold at Loa Angeles recently. "W. B Milier, the well known jeweler of this city, onejof the parties referred to, says he "went skating on an ice pond in Los Angeles on Sunday Inst. The people down there are so badly frozen up thai it will taije them all next summer to thaw out." Wm Curtis, another Sacra- mentan caught in the cold snap at I,OB Angeles, says, "the plumbers of thai cily are reaping a rich harvest from bursted water pipes. The plumber has for the present knocked out the real estate agent, and the poor Easterner will have to succumb to this second Dick Tnrpin, who will size him up for all bo is worth, and what the real estate dealer failed to gobble up the plumber will surely get away with." It adds that the newspaper of Los Ange- es have suppressed the facts, and that ihey are fca given above. —The Tornado thought the ice nto- ries told in' last Monday's GAZETTE were pretty tough. Wonder what it will think of this one, told us to-day by a party. He says that on that same ilonday morning he walked down town with a friend, at the same time telling ilm a story which had been repeated to him the night before. During the recital he had spit two or three times n order to clear his throat. He was rather surprised that the friend did not augh, as the story was an exceptional- y funny one. The mystery was explained after they entered the friend's office, which thny found well warmed; 'or the whole story had frozen in bis mouth, and began to thaw out, and every word be had supposed he was ar- iculating came out clear and distinct, ind at the points where he had spit, as he thought, pellets of ice issued follow- ng the clearing noise he had made in his throat at the-, time. In short, the words and the expectorations had fro- en In his mouth and issued forth only after the thawing process bad begun , of course, we would not have the Tornado, or any one of our readers hlnk that we tell this as having; actually occurred; we'd have'to see it to be- ieve it, and even then we might doubt; >ut the Individual who told us declared t was so, and offered to bet us a quar- er, provided we'd leave the proof of it o his testimony. . . ' —Here is an actual occurrence. A ady of this community is an intimate riend of another lady, and one day while descanting upon the- merits ot er darling and only boy, told this riend that he was rather vain; his mustache is youthful and downy and venlngs he rubf, burnt cork upon it to irlng out the lines. Now this youth is ir was particularly partial to a daugb- ,er of his mother's lady friend, and his would be mother-in-law isn't nearly as oud of him as of his mother.. In truth he has spoken of him aa lazy and had iven her daughter Instructions not to ive him the slightest encouragement, 'he daughter dutifully acquiesced aud o loJ the old lady to believe she was s indifferent to the young man as was her mother, that she consented to et him take her daughter , out for a leighride one evening not long since* t being stipulated that she was to be ack home by nine o'clock. The ride ras taken, and the daughter came trip- Ing up the walk within a minute of le hour, and with rosy cheeks entered Lie room where her mother was seated waiting her return. Mamma looked p at miss aa she stood by the big amp, aud then with startled air, let er eyes fall upon a book she was read- ng. The movement was unnoticed y the daughter, whose radiant face evealed inner happiness. "Did you ave a pleasant ride V" presently asked marntna. "O delightful," replied the girl; then checking herself, she added, 1 That is to say, I enjoyed the ride." 'ha mother then changing her tone to ne of colder manner, asked, "You on't care for that lilly boy, do you, my ear ?" "O no, of course I don't mamma. I just barely tolerate him. Qf ourse I have to be polite."—Here mamma arose te her feet and walking up to miss, seized her hand with one f hers and taking the lamp in the other hand, led her to a mirror. "Tolerate, iolite, indeed; you've got every drop if the charcoal from that wretch's baby .mustache upon your lips and nose. How, go to bed, and if I ever catch you speaking to him again, I'll send you off to a convent for a couplsj of years.". —The Chicago Times of yesterday lad a somewhat lengthy article taken Irom the Omaha Herald, being an Interview had by a correspondent of that >a'per with a gentlemen now living at SJarysville, Cal The party Interviewed jeing then on a visit to Omaha, said that.fifteen years ago he, bis father aud mother and an elder brother left Whiteafde eounty_for California, and ;hat they stopped over at Courcil Bluffu. He was aoout nluteen years old and the last evening of their stay n the last named city, he went out by himself to see the town. He went to one saloon after another drinking at four or Uve and peeping in on an occasional game of faro, He got very full and finally visited one of the concert rooms of that then f ronteir town. He then lost consciousness, and when he awoke, he found himself by the side of a corpse. It was broad daylight, and he fuSd been robbed and pitched into an alley. He had been sleeping by the aide, of a dead man, who, too, likely was robbed and then murdered. What the GAZETTE would enquire Is, Who is the man telling this story to the Omaha paper? Whatman, then nineteen and who would now b« 84 yean old left Whiteside with father mother tuid elder toother atjd ti cow living »i CaLV Some Of our<H4«r a^Jgbt iw Pay YonrTaxe*.
