THE EVENING GAZETTE: FRIDAY, JANUARY, k j7 Last Saturday evening a week ago Frank Andrews of Sterling gave B three hours' talk on Prohibition at the town ball. He gate them an overdose. So much so that E. K. Jenkins has been sick ever since. Supervisor Baer has the full sympathy of all Ms neighbors In his sad af- faction, and we think JSe appreciates the visits of friends and neighbors as they have so universally called upon him, and shown their heartfelt sorrow for his misfortune. - This la leap year and so Miss Carrie Schlck, Maggie Detweiler and Katie Ulm got up a surprise party In honor of Mose Deyo at Mr. Bipley Stauffer s on laat Monday evening. It was a complete surprise to Mose. There were lots of the young people there and the good time they had was piled up high and In such shape that It will keep a long time. Nelson Kldder, who has been haul- Ing hay from Sterling, was hauling last Tuesday when he upset just south of Penrose. He reloaded, and upset again. We hope Nelson remembered the good teachings of his parents jind didn't swear, for we know hii patience was awfully tried. William John Is another of those chaps who are sporting a heart-breaking, lady-loving and horse-killing new cutter. . • . John Hey has a bull and a boar that should be taken into the prize ring. They had, a regular pitched battle the other day and each drew blood. The boar out a long gash right over the bull's eye, which bled quite freely, and the bull cut a gaah on the flank of the boar, which weighs about five hundred ^pounds, and was taken up bodily by the bull with his horns and threw him out of the barn right through the doors, •mashing them into kindling wood. Miss Smith, of Clinton, Iowa, couisn of Nick, Matt and Joe Wilger, was over and spent the evening at Elmer Mensches' last'Monday in company with Joe and his sister. They are a jolly set. The girls took and hid Joe's new cutter behind the straw stack was down at the store and tried to make him believe some' one had stole it. During the cold weather laat week Mr. Stearne had three bead of cattle to fresze to death; Jonas H. Uaer bought' a new cutter a short time ago, not for the purpose of taking the girls out riding, but for his and his family's pleasure and comfort, but now thinks it will be of no -use-to him this winter unless the snow should lay a long, long time. Bat we hope he will soon be out and able to enjoy the new sleigh. It is reported that the directors of the Fairview district have put their big official foot down on the young people having a literary entertainment in the new school house and oyster sup per in the old one. 'You will, have to toe the mark bow boys. Our parlor is t.o nice for use—only to look at, you see. . The brother of Samuel Page and the father and brother of Mrs. Samuel Page are visiting them at Penrose. They are from east of JDixon somewhere. The ex-storekeeper at Penrose, Mr. Chaa. Bennett, was married on the 10th inat. It is no wonder that no one knew what had become of Charley. Uncle Henry, bought some-outs for little Roy and Bertie Baer and when he gave them to the boys Bertie commenced to crack them with his teeth. We asked him If he didn't Jinow that to crack them with bis teeth would : spoil his teeth. "Why, no," he said, "i am to dumb to know that." Leander Menscb, who has been up to Freeport, -selling patent bells, has returned home and reports as having done right well, but would have done better had the weather not 'been so cold. He expects to go back when the weather moderates. If you want a dog, and want one real cheap go and steal the dog that follows Reuben Williams around. He has tried to loose the dog a number of times, by getting away from him in town, but it's no use for just as soon as be gets home there the dog is too,—no dog no tax you see. Prairie chickens are getting plenty. We have seen more and larger flocks tbia winter than we have seen for a number of years. . Jacob Till man has been helping Ben Bresaler.dlg for gM, oil or coal,but they have had to stop to get a drill, it is nidthe Indications are strong for a find of gas, and when they struck trie blue clay, oil could be seen on the wi- ter. Success to them. We are Informed that Jerry Hess has been .beard from. Ilia whereabouts has been a mystery to a great many,, but if rumor can be-relied on he will torn up with a wife before long in Pennsylvania. Willie Hey-who is butter maker for Hey Jk Baer, 'north of the mound, was hauling saw dust the other day and bad an upset with his load. It is »»W Willie hopped around pretty lively and used some pretty choice words to boojt, * for a boy. We understand that Mrs. Chas. Hej ' has taken a back set and is quite sick with lung fever. She was very low last fall but it was thought she bad entirely recovered. We are informed that Baer & Hey aie doing right well with their creamery. They are new beginners at the business, having only, commenced last fall but the*! say they are there to itay and make it pay for Baer & Hey. Several years' ago N. P. Wilson bad A tpau of horses stolen out of his stable ftod tome time after Home moaey and « watch stolen by the thief (ticking * long pole in tee window end fishing out bia panto. Aud a few eight* ago soaw persou or person* went all titroac&psis tNtttt aad ttabta* prouraa- tily in «Mxeh <at fcojsjw*, ten .whether gutt ffjg&twieOi off or weatlwfr there was none that- suited them we nr» unable to say; they stole nothing however so far as we can learn. The Mound school—Tuttles—on Wednesday jumped into a couple of sleds and took in the Prairieville and Gap schools. Jncob Trout, in the spring, will move on the Chase farm—the one Jake's father bought of Mr. Case; and Will. Wolcott wll' move on the farm where Jake now lives and keep bouse for Fred. Trout, «hr» will farm the .place; and George will farm tlie home farnj. Horace £ John was lost In the late blizzard in Dakota in going from the barn to the house, so a letter from Dakota WITH, and would hare"lost his life had it not been for Austin Smith 'call- log for him at the house, and directing bis way to it. The Ore over at Diion the other evening was seen by quite a number of our people. ! Wm. D. Detweiler, the new P. M. and store keeper at Penrose, goes abobt the business as though he was an old veteran, both at handling out the mall and weighing out tea and coffeo. ' Mart Book thinks BO, and_so__do._we i that when a man sells a horse and' don't reserve the shoes they should be left on, but he thinks it admissible to put on an old halter In place of a niw one when a harm is sold. A. J. Buckingham had one of his mules die on Tuesday night—quite; a loss as it will break his team. Mrs. William Davis a widow, lost a horse which broke its neck in the stable Tuesday night.

Editor Gazette: Dear Sir!—As I am a former resident of your city possibly it will be interesting to some if I at this time write a short sketch concerning one of the worst storms ever experienced by the 'oldest settlers which commenced about 9:80 o'clock Jan. 12,1888. On said morning people were alive to the fact that the weather had changed from Severe cold-to a warm, quiet winter morning,.but just as in all of life's brightest mornings and every one was expecting to enjoy life's pleasure, the storm king - with.' aQ of his fiercest wrath with which imagination can imagine or pen caa picture or portray, we were all surrounded with the fiercest wind and snow storm ever known to the oldest settlers. Our school had called and in the school house were huddled ISO scholars of all sizes. People of our town and surrounding country were beginning to bestir themselves. Many going on the road with teams never to return again, as many were caught and perished in the storm. One poor miafortunate started home some sixteen miles, distant, with as One a team as one could wish to drive. Became bewildered and lost; unhitched from his sleigh, drove his team and walked behind them 20 miles ontil one horse fell and perished in the blinding snow. He worked and tried to get it up, but could not. He- then travelled on'to the southeast with the storm for 3 miles and had to yield and die as determined as he was to live. Another man in our county'going for'the doctor on horseback fell dead from his horse. Miss Maggie Dunn, a school mistress, in going to , her. school went astray in the blinding blizzard and perished one mile from her school house; but worst of all was the case of farmer Goalee two miles north east from St. Lawrence, Hand county, Dak. He being an old gentleman 06 years old who lived alone, and went in the evening to tend his stock, lost his way, passed within five feet of his own house, went right along side of a wire fence for sixty rods within five feet of it, traveled three miles and died in* a pasture.. Others were lost and frozen quite severely, but will recover. Four deaths by freezing In Hand county, but none who were formerly from Sterling or vicinity, except T. E. Gilkeson, of Huron who was out drawing hay and could not find his way bacjc to the house; his body was found four rods from his own bouse. No school children froze in this vicinity but ID some localities school children perished within 4 few rods of home. Turner county lost the greatest number, some tbirty;in all; but human suffering was not. all. The loss of stock cannot be estimated. Cattle died by scores; some few horses; and t e mercury only showed 30 below zero at the coldest point in the storm; but the snow melted the instant it touched and formed an ice in few seconds, and a person or brute froze almost as qulqk as the ice formed. But we are thank- full .still knowing that other good coup- tries are affl^ted .with sore scourges; Nebraska, Kansas* and Iowa suffering nearly as bad if not worse, aud they are grand good States, anil have always had blizzards; but we don't want any more experience wjth one; yet hope our eastern friends won't be alarmed concerning us DakoUana. We are nil right yet, *ad desire to still liv* in Hand county, Dak. PKTKR E. MoCnA Y Th« swladi* ol the ag«a; anthracite 00*1, In this era of transformation and reform- when parties change front and States are whirled round on turn-tab) i platforms— there U to be foand outside of politics new methods denoting how men nnd women find content nnd hnppinew, discarding the old, uncertain means of riddine themselves of bodily misery.. They Keck, find . nnd hold on to, not what merely relieves, but what cnrea without recurrence of pain, Mr. llnrry Williams, dru^ist, notary public nnd late postmaster of Greenville, Cal., not content with a mere statement of facts, affixes thereto his jurnt nnd oflloinl seal, evidently an emphatic method of niuking it unquestionable. He says under date of Mnrrh 6, ISd-i, attested in the manner described: "1 am willing to stole nndcr sen] of iny office, from repentcd^observaUons,-:! have-seen more benefit derived from n single application of St. Jacobs Oil than nny remedy I ever used or sold in twenty years' constant handling of medicines. I have recently had under olwervution n lady who for two days suffered severely from pain in the hack KO intense nhe could not nit np. One application of St Jacobs Oil applied In the evening gave tlie patient ,n good night's rest, nnd Rhe got up well the next morning." June 21, Ift^, lie again writes: "I do n.ot he.iilate to renew what I have said—that too mnch cannot Iw Raid in favor of your wonderful Oil. Having used it in my own family, besides a great numhrr of sufferers who have applied to me, with almost infant and pcrinnneut relief, I can truly say llii't its use has effected curefl to my knowledge and afforded relief that seenied incredible and almost mai-velouR." Also Sniicaut Thos. K. Hogan. Northeast Police Station (residence, 2ll. r > N. Castle street), Italtimore. Mfl., slates: "My wife hud been a miflVrer five or six years with intense pains in her back—hnnliagu—mid found no relief from doctors. She used besides nil kinds of remedies-without benefit until finally I was induced by n brother officer, who hud been cured by SI. Jacobs Oil, to give it a trial to relieve my wife. I did HO, a'lid she used two lK>tlles, which cured her completely. She lias had no return of the pain While using it our boy fell from n shed nnd sprained his leg badly. A portion of the Oil wns used on him and it cured him promptly. My wife attends, to her lions hold duties without trouble." The pusiliic nnd permanent cures—no relapse, no return of pain—arc the point* to which public attention is turned. Modern re- fonri in selecting only such nnd keeping It on hand is the indication of the timea toward what is best. DESOLATION. Alone I sit in Korcnotia ntnte, And view my gnlbered treasures rare, Which neem to mock my cruel fate— My louely lot, so bleak and bare. Within Is wealth and warmth and Hfcht, Close- curtained from tho wn'tatHng wind, . That sweeps aud swirls with reckless might. Whoso breath brings death to human kind. But the cold wind of her deep scorn Has blighted all my Joy of life; Within my soul no hope Is bom— No rest or peace or savage strife. Aud what coro I for pride or fame, Since love from out my heart Is driven! All, all Is hut an empty name- Ashes the prize for which I've striven. Dead ashes from a deep despair, A heart burned out by passion's fire— 0 Ood: she was so false, no fair. And blind was I with fond desire. 1 loved with lovu that ne'er p*ows old; My worship followed where she led; But weary of a tale oft told, Sb« left mo!—and the world Is dead: '—Martha M. Boss ID Times-Democrat. A BICYCLIST IN BENAREJ3. Idols and Temples, Mosques and Bathing Ghats—Gods of the Heathen. At length I reach Benares, wheeling down the luxuriant Ganges valley. Of all the cities of the east, Benares is perhaps the most interesting at the present day to the European tourist. Its 1,400 shlvalas, or idol temples, and 280 mosques; its wonderful bathing ghats, swarmjhg. with pilgrims washing away their sins,' the burning bodies, the sacred Ganges, the hideous idols at every corner of the streets and its strange idolatrous population, make up a scene that awakens one to a keen appreciation of ita novelty. One realizes fully that hero the idolatry, the "bowing down before Images" that in ova- Sunday school dnya nsed to seem so unutterably wicked and perverse, so monstrous and so far, far away, is a tangible fact. To keep up their outward appearance on a par with the holiness of their city, men streak their faces and women mark thio the parting In their halt with red. Sacred bulls are allowed to roam the streets at will, and the chief business of a large proportion of the population scorns to be the keeping of religious observances and pay- Ing demotion to the multitudinous idols scattered about the city. : • Everywhere, In niches of the walls, under trees, on pedestals at frequent corners are Idols, hideously ugly; red Idols], Idols with silver faces and stone bodleq, some with months from ear to ear, big idols, little idols, the worst omnium RatU- ernm Imaginable. -Sati, nothing visible but her curious face, beams over a black Mother Hnbbard sort of a gown that corj- ceals whatever she may possess in the way of a body; Jagoddutri, the Mother Of •the World, with four arms, seated on b lion; Brahma, with five eyes and four mouths curiously made to supply quadruple faces; tounadevaT- the handsome little God of 1/ove (the Hindoo Cupid), whom the cruel Siva or.ce slew with a beam from his third eyeball these and multitudinous others -greet the curious sightseer whichever way one turns. Haij- nman, too, Is not forgotten, the great Monkey King who aided Rama in his expedition to Ceylon; outside the city proper is the monkey temple, where thousands of the sacred anthropoids do congregate and consider themselves at home. ' Then there 'i» the fakirs' temple, the most beautifully carved shivolo in Benares; hare priests distribute handfuls of soaked gram to all mendicants who present themselves. The gram is supplied by wealthy Hindoos, ind both priest* and' patrons consider it a great sin to allow a religious mendicant to go away from the' temple empty hauded.—Thomas Stevens In Outing. • Dakota Editor** Complaint.

Father remained up all night and by morning the storm had abated, so much that they went to work shoveling snow and finding the animals. The snow Is piled up everywhere—crept into the house. The only place not full of snow Is the cow barn; It drifted over the door and sealed It up, which saved the animals. Friday evening the mercury stood at 22 below and HatuWtmt^nlug '32 degrees, '^y ^ One woman was burled art Ze'll, that had gone to milk the cow and could not find the house again. A woman north of Zell went out to get straw and was found dead o'n a tree claim. -A fourteen year old boy at Zeh saved eight little children."
