BBKTITIES. —Mr. Fred Schaale Is quite sick. —Bora to Mr. and Mrs. James Dundon, Jan. 25, a fine boy. —Remember the eclipse; It will be a total one and visible just after sunset. —Miss Fannie Reed is recovering from a very severe siege of diphtheria. -The thermometer had climbed up to from 10 to 14 above at 7 o'clock this morning.. —The First National Bank "Inner walls, In the bands of ;an artist, is being frescoed handsomely. ^—Engineers _of_the_ North western road are .here at work surveying for the double track and the depot building at Sterling. —Mr. Ira Detra has purchased the house and lot owned by Ephram Capp, now occupied by David .Weber, on Third avenue. —Chronological: To-day is the anniversary of the death of Prescott, the historian, in 1859. To-morrow is the anniversary of the admission of Kansas into the Union, in 1861. —Mlsa Blanche Carpenter gave a leap year party to a number of her friends. There was dancing and refreshments were served. The young people had a very pleasant time of it. —David Flynn was bound Over, by Justice Alexander yestenlay, to the Febrnary term of the circuit court, in the snm of one hundred dollars for giving liquor to minors at the Grogan sale Thursday last. —The C. B. & Q., we see by one of the Chicago papers, has placed an order for a large amount of steel rails. A portion of these will be used on the track between here and Bock Island and between here and Shabbona this spring. —The Sub Rosa party last night attracted quite anunber 61 our young people, who, as usual, greatly enjoyed jhe dance. Prof, and Mrs. Parcell_fnfr —Postmaster Furlong, of Iloihelle, has had for long time n lot of fellows after his perch with polea a mile long, lie has his foot firmly planted, though, and will not budge an inch. The chain that holds him is a golden one, and the links are made np of party service and good fellownbip. Some of his assailants are rood and Insist that a survey of the situation will demonstrate necessity for a vacation of the premises. , —The Mt. Carroll Herald editor is having a "spat" with an Ogle connty editor, and in its last Issue denominates him the "leper", among Ogle County editors. A leper la one who was forbidden to go where others went, he might not drink from pool or fountain, or visit the home of wife and children. He was a literal Pariah. Surely our Mt. Carroll friend used the word Inadvisedly; he couldn't possibly have meant that his Ogle county contemporary is unfit to mix among his confreres ana crack jokes .with them and discuss delinquent subscribers and dead-beat advertisers. He probably used the word in a lickwlcklan sense.: —A fanners' Congress for this district has been called to meet at Dixon February 0 and 10, next. This Is a good thing, if conducted properly. It has been whispered to us, though, that two or three candidates for State offices are "down for a speech" ont hat occasion. We hope this Isn't true; the candidates have no right to run so important a meeting as this into politics. But that Is the trouble in this country; every general election year, there can't, bo a farmers' meeting, or v a camp meeting, or any other sort of a gathering of voters that these politician chaps do not attend and monopolize * a good share of the time. Yet these same chaps keep away at all other times, and It Is passing strange to us that those having these meetings in hand, do not refuse them the time they aak for. . —The almanac antedates the newspaper; and it Is as popular now as when It was first Introduced. For years Poor Richard, Benjamin Franklin's famous almanac, was famous, and, also, for a long time patent medicinemen essayed to control the trade, giving away that which in more meritorious form was charged for by others. The New York Tribune, under Mr. Greely first and since bis death, the Tribune company, ins, Hosiery, Gloves, Mitten * * » Corsets, Bustles, Handkerchiefs, Mufflers, And many other Goods to be sold very CHEAP FOR To reduce stock before Invoicing. CALL A1TO SEE. nished the music and Matt Wiilger call ed the figures. The Sub Rosa will give but two more parties this winter, as the lenten season will then come on. —As we go to press a meeting of farmers and business men Is being held In the Council Eooms, for the purpose of considering the question of overflow land. • Quite a number kave already come to terms with the,upper dam company, and it is HOW confidently expected that all will do so, with the possible exception of one or two. —Quite a number of the friends of Mr. and Mrs. Schraeder (he lives north of Sterling) made up a surprise party on them last night. They took provisions with them, and greatly pleased and entertained their host and hostess by pleasant conversation, and all fortlfled themselves against the rigor of a return ride In the cold by partaking heartily of the provisions they took with them. Billy Howard and officer Shultz were the getters up of the party. —The six schools of Palmyra township gave a joint entertainment at Uap Grove last night, and a crowded house was gathered to s«e the programme carried out. ./Mr. W. T. Tuttle, of Mound school, presided. There were recitations, songs and dialogues. The receipts which amounted to a generous sum, were equally divided among the six schools. Palmyra is a live town,— live In its schools, as in its people, and this entertainment fully sustained the previous reputation of this model township. —Kochelle will be glad when the lle- publioans get control again of the government; It baa been In a regular stew over the* postoffice ever since the Dem- eorata got into power. But'come to think over the matter, maybe they won't for all, because under Republican dominion, say along In 1879 or '80, ;here was a regular ~ monkey and parrot time of it over that self-same post- office. By the way, though terribly exercised over the postofflce matter, Eochelle finds time to offejr $60,000 to the county, If it will remove the courthouse within its limits. —We have been looking back over a period of ten years and fall to recall a winter in which there has been go many sleighing parties as during the present season. The exceptionally fine sleighing, and the bracing weath er have caused al who coald and a who enjoy sleighing to indulge in It freely. The easy gliding motion, the jingle of bells, the tonic of the air, the pleasure of company, all combine to make this the most delightful of all pastimes. Hence, concerto, parties, entertainments of any kind within a dozen miles of Sterling are sure to attract a greater or less number of our people. —The Coleta correspondent of the Milledgeville Free Press tbreatens~that Coleta "people will not come hereto trade because it requires people driving sleighs and sleds to hang out danger signals." We don't believe there is another man In Uenesee except the writer of that article who would talk In that fashion. Why, the beU ordinance was made for the protection of fanners as well as others. There is no expense attendant upoa the matter, as almost any farmer has a cow, or some other Und of bell about his place, which he e»u use U he ha» not a jingle of bells and doe* not care to buy one.

One of the best of ajl of these Is that of the New York World that abounds In Information of all kinds. Close behind it follows the Tribune and the Chicago News. Our old friend, the Lancaster county almanac, never loses its Interest. Patent medicine ones abound and can be had at any drug store free of cost and most of thorn predict the coming weather with the confidence and Ignorance of weather prophets the world over. Let no one sneer at the almanac; like the Bible, it ought to be in every household. It la good, If only to tell the rise and set of the sun and the moon's phases. But, the fellows who make up these books are wise and shrewd and sagacious,— even the makers of the free for nothing patent medicine ones. Sneer not at any of them. They are good things to fall back upon on a rainy day, when aH other books lose their Interest, while those sent out by the leading newspapers are really Invaluable because of the infinite amount of Information they contain. —A young gentleman of onr city wrote two letters a few days since. One of these was designed to go to- a cigar dealer at Chicago and the other to the girl of his choice in the same city. It should be explained that he has a weakness for a certain brand of cigars and that he unloyally to his town orders his favorite direct from the Chicago boose Instead of through a home merchant. The Chicago cigar dealer was electrified at receiving the following; "My darling Josle: I carry your image inimy heart; I love you beyond measure. Asleep or awake you ire ever in my thoughts. • You are charmiBgist and best among all created things. : I love you to distraction. I shall be in on the 2:15 Saturday and as soon thereafter as possible take you to my loving arms. Yours, devotedly. j onn .» But picture ,if you can the feelings of the young lady when she opened an envelope contalng her address in well known handwriting and the contents in the same familiar hand as follows: "The last installment was a regular fraud. I wish you would change your perfume, as that you now use is enough to destroy the stomach of an ox. No doubt you get lots of threats from the multitude of your admirers that they'll change off to some other favorite, because man is an awfully changeable being, and so don't attach much Importance to such throats, but I'm a plain spoken man and I. speak right oiit fr«m the shoulder, as Johnny Sullivan strikes, and I tell you, honest Injun, if yon don't get better stock and keep closer to old time virtue, I'll give you the go by. I'll be in Chicago soon and give you a call and possibly one more trial; but I tell you honestly, that you have got to show lots of improvement, or you and I will not speak "we pass each other by." Yours, you bet,.. Jonnle. The young man had, as the reader perceives, sent the letters crosswise,— the cigar man's to the. lady and vice versa. So woob for buying away from home. We've told our subscribers they never should do so. Some may think this a make up yarn,—but it is as true M true can be. We did hear what tort of reply the young man got from the youug lady; but we spare hli feeling, only let him koow we know It, and so moral; wh*t»v«r oa b»r» to but "Better late than never," but better never late when troubled with a cough or cold.
