They didn't do that but they did manage to break harness and damage the cutter somewhat, —Last night was Miss Nellie Over- holser'a birthday and so some fifty of her friends proceeded to her homo bearing refreshments and the present of a handsome rocking chair. Her father likewise remembered h»r with a liandsome gift. The evening wai spent very pleasantly Indeed. —The hired girl at Mr. B. C. Church's a day or two ago threw down a match Into a tub of clothes setting In a bathtub, 'she supposing the flame of the match had expired. The result was the burning up of the clothes, many artl- eles of which were expensive.

OA.IX AWD SEE. did no further damage. —Bert Bard plead guilty before Justice Alexander yesterday afternoon to a charge of permitting minors to play billiards In bis place, and was assessed a flbe of 830 and costs. He was nn- able to pay it and was consigned to the lockup, where he will have to stay 70 days, unless friends come to his rescue. '; —The Sterling Pleasure Club's dance In the Gait House last night was en- gaeed In by about thirty couples, and was kepi up until about one o'clock J Professor Buck furnished the music In highly creditable manner and the affair was a delightfully .pleasant one to all engagecfin it. —Saturday next, the sun sets at five o'clock; the moon rises Immediately afterward, being at that time completely within the earth's shadow. An bonr and nine minutes later (at 6.-09) it will begin to emerge from the shadow, and an hour and one minute later (at 7:10) it will be clear; but for an hour and two minutes later, it will be In the exterior shadow, or penumbra. Let all bear this in mind. • —Married, yesterday, at the residence of the officiating clergyman, Bev.N. H. G. Fife, Matthew Crlchton and Elizabeth Coats, both of Jordan, Ten years ago the groom was a pupil of the editor in a Jordan school and if he proves as good a husband as he was an obedient and tractable scholar, it will be all that bis wife can ask of him. The bride is a very estimable young lady. May their married life be a happy one. —Mr. David' KaufTman driving home from Bound Grove yesterday afternoon, found a man lying in the snow'a mile this side of Empire, in an insensible condition. He placed him on his sleigh, rubbed .and chafed him and finally brought him to. He then-wished Kauffman to belt him on the nose that it might appear he had < been beaten and robbed. Kauff man had met him previously in a wagon; but his team had got away from him and came to town, but a lot 61 the contents of his wagon, drinkables, were scattered along the roadside, from the point where he was found into the city limit. —Johnnie Crawford is settled down at Kansas City in business with Mr. Patterson, and now speaks of Sterling as a city that used to be bis place of habitation.. We thought of John as a fixture here, and never supposed he'd be contented elsewhere; but he declares that be has gained many pounds in flesh, is in excellent health and doing well in business. We're glad that be Is satisfied and that conditions are all favorable. Still his heart warms up at mention of Sterling and his memory often calls up pleasant scenes and faces in his boyhood and young manhood's home. —Judge Grinnell is to preside at the February term of the circuit court Report says he can have the Democratic nomination for Governor, if he wishes it. His fame in connection with the successful prosecution of the Anarchist*, together with his general ability M prosecutor for Cook county makes him in the estimation of many a very available candidate for chief executive of the State. But thli is a Presidential year; Illinois has a big Republican majority, and party lines are drawn taut The Republicans will probably run a very available and popular man, anyway, and it is not likely that the Damoerau can ciomintte • man who would r>:u ahe»d of bin ticket u!<#e tbau * tiouAsiscS -jr go votes. In a Pr«»U0aU*l year » aoasUiailon js la f, $t*i* in vest pocket, Jo breathes free and easy' now. —Judge Grinnell says he don't wish the Democratic nomination for Governor, but does not say he will not accept it. It looks as if he'd be a candidate, after all. —Mr. Moses J. Wentworth, nephew of Long John Wentworth, is in the county, looking Into the claims of Mrs. Harriet M. Tuller, of Prophetstown to certain north .side Chicago property. The GAZETTE published a^full fclstory of this claim some time ago. Long John Wentworth purchased this property and held It awhile; hence his present Interest Interest In It. Many of the present owners of the property have settled with Mrs. Tuller's attorney. —Mr. Frank Bunn Is here from New York, having arrived on Tuesday evening. He will leave on Saturday for his new post of duty at Sacramento, in the mechanical engineering department of the Central Pacific railroad. He is to be congratulated upon bis good fortune In securing so desirable a position, and especially upotfwinnlng it through his own merits. It Is seldom that so young a man secures such speedy recognition of his talents In hU profession. * —Constant confirmation of the un- deslrablllty of Southern California as a place of residence. A paper, the Sioux City Journal, sent us by Hon. A. A. Terrell says the land boom cannot possibly last'through n?xt summer. Already the newspapers of that region are laden with advertisements of lands for sale,—a bad sign, showing that buyers are decreasing, it might have added that its chiefest attraction "genial climate'Vis gone—the late blizzard wiping it out. —In the wood works of the Novelty Iron Works this morning, a stove pipe Pay Yenr Taxen. Tax books for Sterling township are now open at Sterling National Bank. Parties are requested to pay their personal taxes on or before Feb. 20th. WM. A. CONNELLY, dwtf • Collector. James M. Fitzgerald's Restaurant. Meals at all houre; oysters in every style. Prices very reasonable. Under Reefer's drug store, corner Srd'and Locust streets. tf of a cannon stove fell down and water was poured in to put out the fire. Charles Long, a Swede, an employe was in front as the water was poured in the stove, and he was badly scalded on the left arm from the wrist well up to the shoulder, the skin peeling off at once from about the elbow. Dr. Keefer was called in to attend the suffer, who will be laid up for three or four weeks. —A couple driving a sleigh last night had'a narrow escape from serious injury, owing to the shortness of the traces. The animal frightened by the sleigh fetching up against its heels, would so increase Its speed as to cause the driver to pull on the lines, which but served to Increase the assaults upon the horse's rear. It was an exciting scene and when finally the animal reached the stable where It was owned, it was a relief not only'to the occupants of the sleigh, but also to the spectators, who expected momentarily to see the horse use dts heels. It was found that the horse's heels were badly cut and this morning it is well "stove up." —Our neighbors at Dlxon are superlatively happy. It is finally settled positively that the Anglo Swiss condensed milk factory .'is to go there. The Telegraph of yesterday announces the fact and gives the details. The land, 25 acres, is purchased; the build- Ing will cost 9200,000; 250 hands will be employed and it will require 0,000 cows to supply the demand. The Illinois Central has agreed to run side tracks and do other needful things. This information Is reliable. .The factory will be put up during the coming season. Truly when one considers Dixon College the shoe factory and the condensed milk factory, he feels like saying, Some towns are bom to luck, some towns achieve luck and some towns have luck thrust upon them, and of the latter Dixon is undeniably. —M. y. Johnson, who has won unenviable notoriety because of his war record, a lawyer of Galena, has called-a convention of lawyers of this district, to meet at Freeport today, to nominate a candidate for judge. Mr. Johnson's authority to call a convention Is about as substantial as would be his right to to assume the dictatorship of Illinois. We do not know bow numerously bis convention is attended, but a man going out before the people with M. Y. Johnson's endorsement on his back, would sUnd about as much chance of an election as would a Republican can- dldats for Governor in Kentucky or Texas." That convention had better adjourn without doing-anythlng, unless it happens that Mr. M. Y. Johnson has a deep-eeated grudge against somebody and wishes to nominate him so he can Be laid out —Our townsman, John S. Stager, Esq., has with his ingenious hands and by the help of his lathe made a miniature spinning wne*l, and flax wheel complete; the kind that our great grandmothers used. And the remarkable thing about It is that he should be able to call up the machines in all their parts, and reproduce them perfectly Retired from active business, Mr. Stager finds amusement and recreation m making divers ornaments and useful things for the household. HU own home and those of bis children contain many truly beautiful and elegant articles of hia manufacture,—clocks, brackets, frames, bask eU,boxes, etc. To our tnifd. though, his latest effort is peculiarly interesting to ua, recalling the old plantation of boyhood, where the hum of the wheel* of which tb«*e are mw.h sd»lr*l)i« wuaUrfait*. could b& U«aH from ra*y more So dew; sv» No Mlatafcc.
