While there they discussed Sunday school matters. —The continuance of fog for three days' at this [season is something worthy of record. As we go to press it still continues, and frost still covers the trees and telegraph and telephone wires. —The thermometer for the past three days haa not run down lower, at any time than : l8 above zero, and after the extreme cold weather that has visited us for so long time, thl» sort of atmosphere Is pleasant indeed. —The fog of this morning was denser, even, than that of Monday or Tuesday. It waa suggestive of those that hang, about the walls of the Gulf Stream, or that visit the New England coast from time to time. —John Grady, a brakeman on the train of which Mike Kael Is engineer, had two fingers of his right hand crush- •Mr. Hause captured an estray horse and cutter last night, near his stable. Some time later, Mr. Jacob Book, of Empire, came in and claimed the property, stating that the animal had run away and thrown him out, just this side of Empire. —Brakeman J. Stakes, on the Northwestern road, had his arm badly broken aud his back injured at Clinton this morning at 4 o'clock, by the colliding of a switch engine and a freight train. He was on top the cars and jumped off receiving Injuries, as stated. —Mrs. Anna Pf ulb haa received a big assortment of dried California fruits from her daughter' Mrs. Ed. Cushing living in California and put up by herself. They are in excellent condition and certainly reflect credit upon the housewifely skill of the lady. —A party of about twenty couples gathered at the hpuse of Mr. Thomas Williams last evening and enjoyed themselves dancing until a late hour this morulng. Refreshments were served during the evening and all unite in saying they had a pood time. —Messrs. D;Lr Miller & Co.-have sold their livery property, horses, sleigh's, &c., to Albert Flschel, banker, of Pittsfield,Ills. Mr. Reefer will for the present manage the business, and Mr. Is rumored, may remove here, after sixty days. —A.word more concernlngthat natural gas enterpsise. WGateV^. may be said, it does speak volumes forthelr enterprise and the public' spirit when they will Invest money upon a thing of this sort.

He was near Round Grove at the time. Mr. Grady has relatives living south of Rock Falls. —A fog is a menace to ships at sea, so It has proved disastrous to railroad men. Besides the death of the two men at Rock Island Junction last night, a brakeman was killed yesterday at Clinton, two men were killed near Freeport, there waa a caboose crushed at Sterling yesterday rooming, and other minor accidents in the past twenty-four hours. —To-morrow is Candlemas day, or feast of the Purification of the Virgin Mary. It Is commemorative of the presenting of Mary with her child at the Temple In obedience to the Mosaic law which required mothers to present their newly bdrn children to the priest within the temple, there to offer a sacrifice. On this day, candles are blessed In the Catholic churches of this and other countries. —The High Old Time Comedy Company played last night to a rather smaH audience. The trouble with this company was that the people knew nothing of Its merits, and they are slow to patronize a show with which they are unacquainted. Its performance on Monday night was not of that exceptionally high order which would advertise It sufficiently to call out a crowd on the following night. Last night's performance was equal In merit to that of tha evening before. —Following is the report of the Whiteslde county Infirmary, as made by Superintendent F. M. Barnum, for the month of January: Present Jan. 1:2 males and 80 females; since admitted 6 males and 4 femalel; discharged 2 males: remaining at end of,month 20 males and 34 females, all white, and also one colored male there through the month, making In all 64 Inmates, the largest number that the GAZETTE has ever made record of, we believe. —We learn from the Fulton Journal that Archbishop Feehan has ordered Rev. Mr. Sullivan, pastor of the Oath Corsets, Bustles, Handkerchiefs, Mufflers, :». .». ••» •%—*** . . , olio church at Tamplco to report to him at Chicago; also that he baa ordered the church to be closed and the parsonage and furniture to be sold or rented. ?he Journal adda that a few yean ago ibis was one of the most flourishing Jatbolio churches in the county, but hat dissensions (have so divided the ihurch that' a majority do not attend or contribute to the priest's support. —Prohibition conference and mass meeting to be held In the Opera House In Morrison, 111., commencing Friday February 3d, 1888, at 2 "o'clock p. m., and continue until Saturday, including Saturday evening, under the auspices of the State Central committee of the Prohibition party. Everybody invited to attend. 'Among the speakers f roin abroad are General Singleton and Nathan Jewett and others. Home speakers are F. E. Andrews, 8. T. Shirley, 8.

Hanson and others. - . can to advance the Interests of the two towns and believing that it is their duty to seek to find that which If discovered would bless every man, woman and child here, they took stock and have begun work. Their «hances are as good as those of arty similar companies any where, and many companies have been successful. We care not whether they are successful or otherwise, the gentlemen composing that company are entitled to the sincere thanks of Bll our people for their subscriptions. If earnest wishes, hopes and prayers will avail, they can be sure of ours all the way through, and with every foot of boring, we shall look with ardent eyes for the appearance of - that- matchless gas,, .which, discovered, will bring wonderful prosperity to our people. —Last night there occurred on the Northwestern road west pf S erling one of those unaccountable tragedies which despite best government do visit railroads now and then. At about 11:15 o'clock last night a two-section stock train was coming this way, when as the engineer of the rear train was entering a cut near Rock Island Junction the engine of the rear train came up with the caboose of the head train. Supposing It had stopped (supposing, we say, for It had not, bat the rear train had accelerated speed) and that he would telescope the head train, (it was very foggy at the time) the engineer bade the fireman and a stockman who were in the cab to jump, and also jumped himself, first reversing bis engine. The other two had au awful fate. Springing oat upon a sloping bank, they fell backward, rolled under the train and were both killed outright. One of them, a stockman, from Gladbrook, Iowa, named Edward Kelly. He is a brother-in-law of John Mee, of this city. The other, the fireman, named Daniel Donovan, lived at Marquette, Mich. They need not have jumped, for the engine barely reached the caboo»e. The remains of the unfortunate men wers bi ought to Sterling, where none who saw them will be likely soon to forget the spectacle of their mangled forms. It is not for UB, unacquainted with the rules governing —Engineer Mathows well known here, who runs the Freeport night express, C. & N. W.;ran over a man some where on his route, the man being instantly killed. Yesterday he attended the inquest held at Chicago, and on his way back fell off from his epjrine having both his legs cut off. H« died this morning. —An eight-year-old youngter caught on to a bob sled driven by a 200 Ib. man this morning on Third Street and caught oft just about as soon, the driver having whipped up his horse, and that lad tumbled one complete somersault and half of another. When he got up, he was somewhat dazed, but began running after the bob sled now a fa'l block away, yelling as hard as he could, "Hold on there, hold on there I yer dassent try that ag'in." The ludl- crousness;of this chick of a child pursuing an over-grown man with fight expressed In his little smooth face is better Imagined than described. —Nature can put on beauty when she tries real hard, and she did put forth last night one of her very best efforts, revealing to the gaze of mortals here with the morning light an exquisite display of ice crystals, which assuming the form of tiny needles gar- nttured the trees thick as their foliage In summer season. The pines and other evergreens In the early dawn were especially beautiful, being gray in color, yet sending out flashes of diamond brilliancy. These Icy needles, too, covered the sidewalks so thickly in places as to suggest a light snow fall. This huge appearance of Jack Frost with the widespread snow mantle and long pendant icicles from roofs of houses suggested the couplet 0 how canst thou renounce the boundless store of charms Which Nature to her TOtary yields? If the tropics exceed us in wealth of foliage and luxuriance of flowers, they are strangers to the occasional phenomena offered during the winter season by the freaks assumed by his majesty the Frost. A conflict for possession. When your system becomes disordered do not let disease take possession. Take St. Patrick's Pills at once. They act promptly, cure costiveriess and biliotis disorders. They ward off disease and tone up the whole system. Btrickler & Bcorse. . tf Dr. LBader.of Fulton,'Kan., says: "I have been practicing medicine for 47 years.

OAJLt SEE. —Who can tell what a small thing may bring about. A man left home yesterday without his overshoes, In an unwary moment his heels flew up and his head came down. And this happened .just as a man was coming up o whom he hada't spoken- for five ears, and his right leg came against hat man In such fashion that he, too, ame to the ground. Under the clr- umstancesthe "ice was broken" (figuratively; the literal loe showed no ravages, although both came down tip- on It particularly hard), and they spoke; each assisted the other in rising. They went down, town together, got a cigar, talked over old dlfferencaa, made 'em up >nd parted after an hour the best of friends. Had that man' pat on his overshoes he would not have, fallen.

Coroner Donaldson came up on the Clinton passenger and made up a jury which viewed the remains. 3 Mr. Kelly while taking stock to Chicago, was a farmer. He was crushed from the shoulders up, and was a mangled mass about the neck and head and face; Mr. Donovan's head was severed and his trunk was divided asunder. The inquest was postponed until four-four this afternoon in order to enable the engineer of No. 22 to be present Mr. Kelly was about thirty -five yean of age and leaves a wife and four Mrs. Harden retained a large quantity of gloves, hosiery, corsets, cloaks and jerseys, when she sold her stock to Fiye & Davl*.
