Dr. Keefer was- sent for this afternoon to attend him. The street commissioner complains about people damping ashes out apon the streets, which act, Is a violation of an ordinancce of the city. —Mr. Louis Beitzel, of Mtlledgeville, so badly injured at the mill last Monday, la getting along as wall as could be expected. A number of his friends from Sterling were up there to see him yesterday. —The|regular meeting of |the publishers and Editors Association of Whiteslde county will take place next Monday afternoon, at 3 o'clock, at Morrison. We hope all will be present. The organization is an Important one,all can profit by it. —The boom has certainly struck our city; judging from the fact that within one week a piece of acre property can be bought subdivided and one-half of the lots disposed of to parties, who, in a large majority, mean to build on Toboggan Caps, | —Mabel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. B. Holtslamler, celebrated her seventh birthday on .Saturday by entertaining a few of her friends. They all brought her some little remembrance of the day. —The meeting of fanners find business men of Sterling last Saturday afternoon was one that was most gratifying to all. The farmers owning lands subject to overflow in the event of the building of the upper dam, impressed with, the sense o£ fairness evinced by our business people, met them in equal spirit of fairness, and the result was that most of the farmers came to terms that were satisfactory. This Is highly creditable to the public spirit of the said owners of land, and the GAZKTTE takes great pleasure in recording the fact. They will lose nothing by it; for the dam built, the population of the city will be added to, and added population means increase of the values of their lands. The GAZETTE returns thanks to the farmers . for their liberal spirit and begs to assure them that it is appreciated fully by our people generally. —Said one of the men prominent In the upper dam movement and one who haBTubscribed most liberally to lt.-to the editor on Saturday evening: "Do you just say in the GAZETTE Monday (today) that that.dam ;is all right and that it will be built; no if and buts about it; but put it rieht down in black andjwhite—the dam will be built. We've got all the farmers owning overflow lands except two or three to agree with us as to amount of damage, and on Monday morning the committee starts out, refreshed and reinvigorated to raise the rest of that money. Of course we'll raise it; we've got to raise it. No such thing as fail." And three or four other gentlemen, alao active workers in the movement said, "That's so," and directed that we publish what we have written. We do so cheerfully and the GAZETTE and its editor will rejoice infinitely and .beyond measure when theyjiave the pleasure of chronicling the first work done upon the dam. —"Why do-you continue, to have faith In your'clty of Sterling V" asked a friend a day or two ago. That answer is easy. Does any one suppose for a moment that Gladstone, or Bismarck, or D'laraeli, or Talleyrand, or Webster was unconscious of his strength when he was young? We once heard a learned logician declare that no man possessed qualities of greatness without being conscious of the fact. Now, just as a great man realizes his ability, DEPARTURES.

Chamberlin is not only assisting in the dam movement, but appears to be having remarkably good success in selling property at the same time, he having already disposed of nearly one-half of the new subdivision on Second avenue, this city. —Oood people, all of you, remember this: The dam means the street railroad right away. No nonsense about this, but honest truth. The dam mehns the railroad, and it will be built and runnidg by the time the dam is bu'lt. This should be added incentive to subscribe for the dam. —William J. Furlong has been confirmed as postmaster of Bochelle.

Ralph was clerk of the Revere house and Mrs. Clark was wife of the proprietor who died last fall. Her son died a short time ago The GAZETTE does not give this mar riage as by authority, but It Is so reported about town, and we obtained our Information from relatives of the young man. —The case of the people vs. Timothy Haley and John Egan came up before Justice Alexander this morning. The case was finally dismissed; Mr. Timothy Haley taking _the note.

[All of which i» «s edifying KB. day, stronger, even, lhan in the past. If our citizens coming here without any capital can .show such abundant, evidences of wealth, by how much more can this be added to now 'thiit they have wealth to add to wealth. Give one young man of 21 the sum of ten thousand dollars and another nothing and let them start out to make wealth; any one know that if both possess equal talents, that the one with the 810,000 would increase his by ten fold before the other could accumulate S50.000. Several men of means have assured ua that their hardest fight was for ten thousand dollars; after that, money came in easily and they were rich before they knew it. Now, we have numbers and numbers of men worth ten thousand and upwards; some worth twenty, some fifty, some an .hundred and some several hundred thousand dollars. The wealth of the community will add unto Itself faster than when the people were all poor. Besides what is made in business, there, is Interest that comes of outside investments. But, more, one of the most gratifying signs of the times is that fact that our business meu are uniting wealth to the. common good; thus not only purposing to make pro- It In business and profit upon invest-' ment, but also to contribute to the general good by attracting people from the outside and so adding to population and wealth. Anyone will admit that the larger the city, the larger one's fortune will grow, because one can make more in a large city than in a small one—can carry his business farther and find mare opportunities for investment and •r iquent turning over of money.' New York has hundreds offmHlionalres; a city of ten thousand scarcely contains one. As we have said, the agencies and potencies which gave our people the wealth they possess, are all'now here; but farm lands now increase in value because they Increase iu profits; it is proposed to more than double the capacity ot the dam by putting in another; growth in capacity of factories gives out more money In the community as well aa increases the population. Increase of population advances real estate values, by increasing demands for it One thing more: we don't get discouraged because the certain-to-be growth don't come all at once 1 Our people are conservative: ;hey made their money honestly and by hard work. They don't want to lose it, and so they carefully investi- Fair Warning. The new dam will be built and all property in this city will advance at least 20 per cent with the coming of Spring, therefore parties who have been thinking of investing at Summit Place on Second avenue, are hereby notified that after Saturday, February 4,1888, the price of lots will be advanced to 8125 and all lots already subscribed for must be secured by getting contracts and making first payments this week. 40 lots sold. . 100 GEO.
