They all seemed to enjoy the occasion and everybody said they had a nica time. —There was a large skating party on the dam pond last night—a big lot of them. The nistht was very bright, although light clouds overhung the sky, and it was a jolly scene : that presented Itself to the onlookers. —Brakeman Stevens, of the Q., formerly running on a train out of Sterling, but now of Aurora, had his shoulders crushed pretty badly a few days ago, by being forced against a signal post while standing out upon an engine. —The Sub Rosa society will give another of their charming parties In G. A. R. Hall next Friday evening, Th« success of these parties with the added Impulse given to dancing by the dancing school, insures a good attendance. —This morning, as we learn, a man with a carload of stock got off at Round Grove declaring the train men Leggins, Hosiery, Gloves, Mitten Corsets, Bustles, Handkerchiefs, Mufflers, And many other Goods to be sold very CHEAP FOR CiSH were trying to rob him and refused to go od. He was crazed from drink (ho had been drinking since he had left his home in Iowa). —A rumor prevalent yesterday that J, Sykes Wilson, formerly of Jordan, had frozen to death In the late blizzard in Dakota, and that his remains would arrive at Polo, is without foundation. He was out in the storm and suffered somewhat from frost bite, and that is all the foundation there ia for the atory. —M. F. Spalsberry sends ua a list of 25 .mammals, wild, to be'found In Wnlteside county, as follows*: Wolf, fox, lynx, beaver, coon, badger, skunk, mink, rabbit, fox squirrel, gray gopher, striped gopher, weasel, wood chuck, chip munck, rat, mouse, mole, muskrat, grey squirrel, grey wolf, otter, flying squirrel, field mouse. —Pat. King waa in to see lis to day and he says that Sullivan was not hurt by any of the coal heavers ;that he was around the depot that night and that there were others around there apd that the condition of some of them makes it easy to see bow he might have got In a row and got hurt; but that he can easily show that no coal heaver waa in any quarrel with Sullivan'' and that no one of them struck him. —The deaths' of Mrs. McCloy and Mrs. Anthony, one following the other BO quickly and both of them members of the same family by marriage, but intensifies the sadness and grief of their large connection of relatives and their many friends. It baa b«en the one theme of conversation wherever we have been to-day. Kegrets are universal and sympathy for the bereaved ones Is aa general as it is heartfelt. —A very pleasant affair waa the marriage of Mr. Robert F. Bosien, of Chicago to Miss Minnie Reinke of this place, last evening at the house of the bride's father Mr. Gust Reinke, Rev. H. Moser, of the Evangelical church officiating. A company of about thirty of the relativea were present to enjoy the happy .occasion. Mr. and Mrs. Dosien will leave for Chicago tod y, which place they .will make their future home. The best wishes of their friends accompany them. ' —The dancing School will be continued to Ita close. Mr. Sweet, the instructor, announced yesterday that the school had not been paying him, and waa not likely to do «jo, and that he should be compelled to ask for a release from hla compact. When thla announcement waa made, Mayor Elliott busied himself, on behalf of the little folks, and soon perfected plans which insures profit to Mr. Sweet and the school will positively go on uninterruptedly to ita close, on Tuesday afternoon and evening as heretofore. —The Chicago Timea of yesterday -The Young People's Society of Christian Endeavor had a sociable lost night in the Congregational chnrch. —It would not coat the city one hundred dollars to keep the snow off the sidewalks through the winter, and a plow with a horse attached would take, it off In better shape than would the average property owner. Such an arrangement would leave just about snow enough on the sidewalk to make walking easy and lessen the chances of sllppinjfor falling. Since it is a fruitful cause of discontent to expect property holders to keep the walks clear, and since it would cost the city so small an amount, it does.seem thai the easiest and best way to do is to let it be done by the latter. It is not possible, even, to make men belelve it to be their duty to maintain the public walks of the city—because running by their property. The city retains control of it and demands It for public travel; th« owner of the adjacent property cannot control, or hold, or manage it In any way, and he regards it as a sort of Imposition to compel him to shovel snow from it A plow or two would remove it in a very-short-time; and the expense being maintained by public taxation, why every one would feel that that la the fairest, best and easiest way to] settle it. —It la with deepest sadness that we chronicle the death of Mrs. Isabella Me Cloy, wife of Mr. Alex McCloy of our city. Her maiden name was Oalt, and she was a sister of Thomaa A.,'John M., Dr. W. J., and Z. T. Gait; also of Mra. Amanda Ciawford and Mrs. Dr. Pennington, a numerous family and one of the most prominent of our community. It ia scarcely two weeks since Mrs. McCloy was well and out upon the streets. A deep cold she contracted settled upon her lungs and she was attacked with violent typhoid' pneumonia, which from the Bret resisted .all the efforts of the physician and on the ninth day she died. Her death has shocked her large family of relatives and larger circle of Mend* greatly; being so sudden, they can scarcely realize that the awful tidings are true. Mrs. McCloy came of sturdy Pennsylvania stock, and possessed the industry and zeal which stamp all the members of her family. An excellent housekeeper, her home waa a model of neatness and attractiveness. She had two children, Mrs. George M. Robinson and Mr. Will Mc- tJloy, tcTwEom Bhe~wasTlevot6~d~sml"tO" whose rearing she gave the best energies of her strong character. Her death is a sad blow to them and to her —Everybody, yes everybody should show interest in the upper dam by being on hand and taking part in tonight's meeting.

CALL SEE. husband, whose many years of life with her were spent contentedly and happily. Mrs. McCloy in her busy life found time to read and inform herselfcjind took great Interest in the affairs of her country. She was an earnest, zealous, upright Christian womau, of large sympathies and a most kind neighbor, whose death will be felt keenly by those who have experienced kindness at her hands in hours of distress end grief and bereavement. The editor tenders his profoundest sympathy to his friend the bereaved husband and the stricken children of the deceased. Her death occurred yesterday evening. She was born at' Conestuga, Lancaster Co., Pu., Feb; 14, 1830, waa married to Alexander McCloy, at Straaburg, Pa., In 1858; removed west twenty-six years ago and resided here ever 'since. The funeral will take, place at the residence Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the Rev. N. H. G. Fife, her pastor, officiating. —Although death had months ago laid ita hand unmiatakeably upon Mrs. Martha J. Anthony, wife of our townsman, Dr. J. P. Anthony, and although for weeks past her life-breath had been continued solely by the skill of husband and son and the most tender nursing of devoted daughters, yet a feeling of deepest .sadness went out over Sterling this morning when it was announced that at last (at about 0 o'clock this morning) the long struggle was over and that her spirit had passed to the other world. During her greatly protracted illness, Mrs. Anthony suffered intensely; yet she endured her afflictions with great fortitude, and when, finally, she realized that her illness was unto death, this intelligence she likewise received with that courageous spirit of Christian endurance which enabled her to endure uncomplainingly the bodily Ills she was suffering. The wife of a physician, Mrs. Anthony proved an help meet indeed. When her husband responded to his country's call during the war, Mrs. Anthony cheerfully took upon herself the added responsibility of caring for her children, and upon his return home and resumption of practice, she was ready to make lighter, aa far aa she could the arduous life of a practitioner In this cold clime. She waa spared to sea her children grow up, and much of the happiness of her last years was in the knowledge that they, too, were happy In their lives. The record of the life of a woman who was a good .wife, sensible and devoted mother, a kind and sympathetic neighbor, Is worthy indeed to be inscribed and to be read that it may prove example to others. While it is true that husband, sons and daughters had long known she must die, yet, today, the household is dark indeed;the body of the deceased is there; but the spirit which was the lite some money, once, tf TILT chance Come and see me at GEO. \V.
