Another one of the robbers,; Jlmmie Martin, was seen at Fulvon Sunday, but he as- caped. The amount stolen was ab ut 85,000. The .evidence Is said to, be conclusive against' them. —"Riding out in the country yesterday my daughter made the remark, Jthere is a redheaded girl and now for the white horse,' There was a team in front and sure enough they were a span of white horses and the only ones we met that dajr. I had almost supposed that to be a superstitious notion of people, but now I know It is true." 0. R. Powell. ' —On Tuesday night thieves went to the residence of Jphn Q. Frank, of Jordan, living one half mile this side of the Center school house and stole between fifty and sixty chickens. These thieves were particular to pick out hens only, leaving the roosters. About six weeks ago Mr. Frank had life and property. Fnrmers cornintt here to town were entitled to protection as well. Hence the ordinance was passed to protect farmers, as well as others. We have consulted attorneys who assure ns thBtlRe"ordinatiC9 could not l»! enforced against non-residenta —farmers or anybody else. Not a single non-resident has been arrested, and we understand that in view of the legal oponion that it could not be enforced except as to residents, the ordinance is not likely to be enforced against any except home people. —The Chicago Herald of M*onday contains a veryjludlcroua story told by Col. Morrison, of the Inter State Corn- Bustles, Handkerchiefs, • \ "- • Mufflers, «'* And many other Goods to be sold very CHEAP FOR CM To reduce stock before Invoicing. OAX.I.

It is scarcely needful to adc that the young folks had a* capita tima. Their only regret was that the party could'nt last all night. —The Bochelle Herald statement that the attorneys of Whiteside will not attend a convention to nominate a judge if the game be held at Freeport must be a mistake. Freeport is one of the most Inconvenient points in the district and Whiteside lawyers know that; but they never could have said that they would not attend a convention if held there, because such action would simply freeze Whiteaide out of the contest. Evidently some one baa misinformed the editor of the Herald. —It is evident that the sleigh bell or dlnance has been made capital ot bj towns considering themselves rivals o: Sterling, and some *of their citizen have been trying to prejudice the farm era against Sterling. Instead of tbi farmers getting angry they should be j thankful for the efforts made by our authorities to protect them, as this ordinance was designed to do. But two days before it waa adopted a woman wan killed on Third street by a collision which might have been prevented if the two cutters had had bells. Besides this, two pArttes that we kuow of bad been injured by cutters that had no bells, while iwveral had narrowly escaped'se- rious injury. There had been a great deal ol <*»t driving by people here ID towiv who, h&rtag no b*Us Chairman of the Committee on Ways and" Means and Mr. Burchard was a member of that committee, each of them received a letter on the same day from Dement father and Dement son, both of Dixon, the former now dead, the latter now Secretary of State. The two congressmen compared notes. Mr. Morrison received a letter from old Mr. Dement, a Democrat, and"It said that his 200 men employed In the Jute mill at Dixon were Democrats; ihrtt If the tariff on jute were Interfered with all his 200 men would turn Republicans and the Democratic party in tbe dis triot would go to pieces. Mr. Secretary of State Dement's letter was to Mr. Burchard, a Republican, and It said that the 200 men in the mill were all Republicans, but that all would turn Democrats if tariff on jute were interfered with, and that the Republican party in the district would all turn Democratic, or at least be infinitely jeopardized. It was decidedly convenient to have a Democratic father and a Republican son In the same factory, as it enabled them to reach both political parties in Congress when the tariff question came up. Morrison and Burchard having compared notes, each showed the«81etter to the other, however, It Is not likely that they would have great weight upon the matter at issue. —The inquest over the bodies of Dan Donovan, fireman, and Edward Kelly, farmer, killed by jumping from a stock train at Rock Island Junction on Tuesday night last, began its session yesterday afternoon at 4:10, Coroner H. C Donaldson present. The jury were II. S. Street foreman, W. A. Sanborn, O. A. Oliver, George Davison, S. P. Gld- dings and A. H. Foot, and they met in Justice Alexander's office. The jury had reviewed the remains in the morning. J. E. McJPherran, Esq., was present as attorney, appearing for the family of Mr. Kelly deceased, and C. C. Johnson, Esq., for the railroad. Engineer Ashley, of train 22, testified to the effect that it was foggy; but that the accident happened In front of the depot and that the lights of the station shone upon his engine; but that train 20, which he was following, was enveloped in fog and darkness; that his train and No. 20 were an hour and a half late; that usually the two trains traveled close together, some fifteen minutes apart; and that he supposed bis associate was at or near Sterling; he supposed No. 20 was statlonar>; he discovered after the accident it was moving nearly as fast as he was, about 8 miles an hour; he made proper signals, reversed engine and 'jumped off on south side; he fell down, it being Icy and for a moment feared he would go under; he didn't see the two men in the cab with him jump— "was busy with hia duties, Brakeman Sweitzer said be was on the fender when his train, No. 22 drew up close to No. 20; thinking there would be a telescoping, he sprang from the tender to bin place at the brake on rear end of first car, and applied brakes; he saw Kelly and Donovan, one after the other, jump, they falling a rod apart; ran down side of his car and jumped to the ground; all happened quickly; caught rail of side track as he 'struck ground, which saved him from going inder; said there waa no bank there- ground was level; strained bis leg, but licked up lamp and limped to rear of ;raln and told men to go forward and see about the two men; bis train stopped i* about flve car lengths and n>ere- iy touched other train; train ahead went about a mile and stopped; his leg hurt him so that lie went into caboose. Authur King, of the construction gang was questioned in regard to the lay of the ground where the njbn sprang out, but he said he did not know whether a bank was there now or not,—it waa level a month ago, but didn't know whether it was level or not at present. John Hee testified as to money and other effect* found upon, the person of Mr. Kelly. The witnesses, the engineer and brakeinan, testified, of course, as it out. Sterling Beecher and Charles Coohran stay tn'.the lockup to work out old Ones. George ^Monroe waa fined $10 and costs for Belling a keg of beer to an habitual drunkard. Mulford had been having Beecher and Cochrati come to his place and drink beer. Tbe officers had been watching the places fe- cause of Its bad name, and three of them raided it. aa stated last night. —Temperature of the month of January, as ckept by Albert Powell for the last 6 years at about 6 o'clock In the morning: January 1833 average 6% above. 85 " 4Ji " 80 " 10J^ " 87 " bjtf " 88 ' " 4% C.

In the United Slates tbe tendency to extravagance, combined with the mis- I taken notion aa to tbe nutritive value of costly food, causes exceptions to the rule. Taking the world through, however, the poorer communities and classes of people almost universally select those foods which chemical analysis shows to supply the actual nutrients at the lowest cost. But, unfortunately, the proper proportions of the nutrients In their dietaries are often very defective. Thus In portions of India arid China rice, In northern Italy maize meal, In certain districts of Germany and in some regions and seasons in Ireland potatoes, and among the poor whites of the southern United States niatze meal and bacon, make a large part of the sustenance of the people. These foods supply the nutrients In the cheapest forms, but tboy are all deficient In protein. The people who live upon them ar« 111 nourished, and suffer physically, Intellectually and morally thereby. On the other hand the Scotchman, as shrewd in his diet as In his dealings, flndl a most economical supply of protein in oatmeal, haddock and herring; and the thrifty Inhabitants of New England supplement the fat of their pork with the protein of beans and the carbohydrates of potatoes, and supplement maize and wheat flour with the protein of codfish and mackerel; and while subsisting largely upon such frugal but rational diets, nre well nourished, physically strong and distinguished for their Intellectual and moral force.—Professor W.
