THE EVENING GAZETTE: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY Evening Gazette. Per forte..10 etn.1 DSLIVKBRD BT OARBUB. FRIDAY. FKB. .1. l»w. preceded by s\gn» In the heavens. We 1 Are P a P er that waan<t description of this most | then what it teaches in the way THE CHICAGO Evening Journal Is addressing letters to editors throughout Illinois enquiring their preferences for President and Governor. It should be understood that this early it is scarcely possible for editors to know the sentiment of their respective communities for the reason that it has not yet cryatalb.ed among Republicans. Democrats are all unaelnionsjor Cleveland; but there is less Hrity ot-prefer- ence among Republicans than is commonly supposed. In our opinion while a majority of the Republicans of this county prefer Blaine, yet there is a very considerable number who do not prefer him and most of those who do not are scarcely decided upon any particula- choice. —A -BOSTON —paper -lying before us says that thlsj8the_most_severe win- attempt no wonderful of the heavenly phenomena; like Niagara,Marnmoth Cave and other natural beauties pen and pencil fail utterly to do justice to the theme. ELSEWHKRE \VK publish a communication from Dr..J. H. Crandall, Health offlcer of Sterling, concerning the remarkable immunity of cavalrymen from cholera during an epidemic of that disease on the then frontier, in which he suggests that it may have been brought about by the killing of the germs of the malady by the ammo niacal gases arising in the stables, and adds that it may be true that ammonia spray may stay ita ravages. This may be, 83 he says, the beginning of a discovery, valuable as that of vaccination for small-pox. We were privileged to use manuscript designed for a Philadelphia medicrl journal. It is certainly worthy the most serious consideration of medical men the country and world over. If ammonia fumes will destroy the microbes in cholera, why not in cancer and.other fatal disorders V of progress and development will be appreciated as'well and ac.ed upon and carried out in good time. All this is »3 true aa that stars shine and day anil night come in their turn. —The delay in the trains yesterday on the Northwestern waa due to a collision between freight trains at Bertram, Iowa.. Several were injured, but no one was killed. —If weather tiikea a Rood ready for a long siege, then what may not be expected from the present foggy weather V Here it is on its fifth day, without snow, or rain, or sunshine. —Yank Newell, tlifi proprietor of the Muldoon's Picnic Company, Is a cousin of Frank Newell, of Sterling, and Mrs. Newell, (stage name Miss Many Hice.) was his guest Wednesday and yesterday. -r-Whiteside county circuit court convenes neit Monday at Morrison, Judge Grinnell presiding. There are upon the docket 4 people's cases, 125 common INTI-IIKSTfXG PEOPLE WHO INHABIT TROPICAL ISLANDS IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC. ter experienced for five and twenty years, and it proceeds to give figures to ptove it* statement. It is scarcely possible for one, we care not how prodigious his memory, to recall the seasons that are past and particularly be able to contrast them one with another. In the same morning a day or two since we talked with two men about the rigor of the present winter. One of them said: "If* lots colder taan It used to be. Why, the winter I came out here, It was so warm in January that people didn't have to have fires In their houses'" Said the other: "Talk 1 about this winter; it's nothin' to what it was when I first came here. Why, bless your soul, except a few days in January, regular January thaw, you know, the thermometer was •'way down below zero weeks at a time _ and the winter didn't break up until the last of May." Both these men are honest, and no doubt told the truth. Some particular fact or act will impress a season upon .us, and it gains intensity over others, because of the association. As we seek to recall, it IB those which are associated with some particular event that come up and it is with these we flre apt to make comparison. It is likely, that the Boston paper tells the truth, as it falls back upon records kept through all these years. Thirty-one years ago, however, there was a siege of cold beginning in January that exceeded any record of the present winter; but we have no datum at hand to tell how long it endured. In that winter down in North Carolina, where the editor lived, the people actually had sleighing and they laid In their stock of ice for the following summer besides hauling wood In wagons across the river, and yet down there thus far this winter there has been no ice, no fro it; flowers bloom in greatest luxuriance and there has been delightfully mild weather the winter through. It is exceptionally and phenomenally cold weather indeed up north which will "visit that region with cold weather. —TTTK GAZETTE has never denied ability to Mr. Lamar; on the contrary it has spoken of him as an orator with most extraordinary ta'ent for pleasing an audience and as being most proficient in knowledge of belles letter litera- true. He is also, an excellent Latin and Greek scholar, besides having knowledge of two or three modern languages. It's objection is that he hasjnot practiced law, and is hostile to our form of government. TirK.Tuny in the Kelly—Donovan inquest return a verdict based upon the evidence, viz., that the two men came to their death by jumping from a train, they jumping from the same and being run over. WE HAVE referred to the aurora boreaiis, that wonderful puzzle of the skies, whose beauties have' delighted and at the same time terrified beholders. Scientists have long ago rejected the absurd notion that it proceeds from the reflection of the sun upon icebergs, and they now hold that It is the result of a magnetic storm in the sky. This last theory(f or it is but theory) is somewhat more satisfactory than the.old one; yet what Is it, after all, but a beg- —Manager Chamberlin cannot justly complain of last night's audience which greeted Muldoon's Picnic, for it was a well (Hied house, indeed; and if one may judge aught of expression on faces and cheery applause, the audience cannot reasonably complain that they didn't get their money's worth. There was fun all the way through without any stops. "Baldhead row" was Ailed with fellows whose hair is still in place, but there were old ones present as well as young ones, and tin y were equally amused with the younger ones. Michael Muldoon, by Harry Brown and Michael Mulcahy, by Lewis Farfell were brimful of rollicking fun. Kitty Muldoon, by Mary Rice, (wife of Yank Newell, the proprietor) was particularly well sustained. Frank Fischer and A. Devereaux, as Jack O'Brien and Jim McConnick did some good acrobatic work. The orchestral music was exceptionally good. The Muldoon, like Uncle Tern's Cabin, was never born to die; it always draws crowds and always pays. —The teachers of the graded schools of Whiteside county .are all at the Third ward school today, County Superintendent of Schools, iJ. F. Hendricks! being present. This is the iirat meeting of the kind held in the county under a recent act of legislature which permits the giving of five school days of the year to the teachers for the purpose of meeting together (or being called together by the county superintendent) to study methods of teaching. The law isa most wise and beneficent measure. While Institutes and nor- mals are held, there is no obligatory, attendance and many teachers abstain from attending them. In this case it is practically obligatory and comparison of methods and observing of practical work wi". result in good, ben- law and 111 chancery cases. ^—Oliver Wagner, a musician, advanced in years, died yesterday. He formerly had a band, and often played in Wallace Hall. He was known to many of our older citizens. He removed to Dixon in 1830 and bad lived there ever since. —It is to be regretted that parties should have busied themselves to prejudice fanners against the bell ordinance. Not a farmer or any non-real dent has been arrested, nor has there been any expression of purpose to enforce it against any non-resident, whether farmer or otherwise. —The Evening GAZKTTK literally scours the county for news. There is no paper anywhere outside of the lar gest cities which has so many corres poudents, nor such live ones either. At Sterling and Hock Falls its work is thorough. To a frienil at a distance the gift of this paper for a year would be equal to many hundred letters, as a single issue contains more home news than could be crowded into a dozen or fifteen letters of from 8 to 12 pages each. —It appears to be now the prevailing opinion that Governor Oglesby will not call an election for Judge until April, anyway, and, possibly, not until June. Well, while most of the lawyers of the county asked^ for a_p08tponement, it greatly gratifies us that some of them, at least, agree with the GAZETTE that the election should not have- been put off. But if not one had agreed with us we still should insist that the Governor had no right to postpone, and particularly so for the reason assigned. , Movements of Population. ARRIVALS Mr. 1. N. Phillips, of Chicago, is y wit- ing here. County Judge W. J. McCoy was in Sterling to-day. James Mee, of Grundy Center, Iowa, and Martin Mee, of Mt Vernon, Iowa, brothers of John, are visiting here. DEPARTURES. Mr. Nelson Hall left today for Carthage, Mo. - Mrs. B. C. Church accompanied Mrs. C. G. Woodruff, a gueat of hers for some little time, to her home at Geneva, today. Mr. A. F. Parker, for Washington, Iowa, to attend the funeralolhis wife's mother, Mrs. Burgess. His wife is there now. KOCH. glng of the question? What Is magnetism?! What is a magnetic storm? Why [should it be in the sky '( are questions the scientist makes no attempt to answer. We give here a statement of fact, we have not seen recorded in any book, or newspaper, or magazine, or heard spoken of .by any one, but that we gleaned from reading of Arctic voyages and travels. Hall who roamed around from 08 to 70 degrees north latitude speaks In glowing terms of the frequency and the vividness of these celestial beauties, two of which were so sublimely terrible that he felt he would be perfectly willing never to see them again. Dr. Kane who wintered in the latitude of 70 degrees saw them now and then at intervals of a week or so* possibly; but be was not so greatly impressed with their .vividness. Those who wintered In higher latitudes, •ay from 78 to 88 degrees saw then much leu frequently. So, it would seem that the latitude of their maximum Intensity and frequency would be from 67 to 72 degrees and north of the point last named they decrease in vigor and frequency. This fact might lead to other discoveries. While less frequent as one proceeds towards the equator, yet In October 1870, there was a display which endured for a week, night after night, and was visible as tar as southern Florida. In the latitude of Virginia, they covered half the heavens and at their maximum brilliancy gave out the most of the rainbow colors, rosy red predominating. There would seem to be associated with them intensity of aqn0ous vapor in the air. We recall the Tact that in August 1859 there were again brilliant auroral displays and that in the days oWhelr continuance, there was observable at different periods of the day (one day in particular towards noon) "rings" about the •on; on one day there was one great ring about that luminary, within which was a much smaller one, while to the right and left of the great ring were other*, of nearly equal size with th* gteataat, being f.>ur IB all, visible at the came time.

Apart from its record of home and outside news, and its opinions on current questions, there Is the very important duty of recording what has been done as incentive to others to do something, as well. Men need encouragement, and competition is incentive. One man's success leads to effort on the part of others. We consider it the highest and chlefest duty of an editor in a city of any size to study most and best what is calculated tn incite his people to exertion in industrial things. The city that stands still is no place for a business man.—is no place for an ambitious man. The stagnation of no- growth affects the whole community and a lack of busines growth is a lack of intellectual and moral growth. A city stirred up to energy, is one that has inspiration all around it and all about it The contagion of do-something becomes truly epidemic and wonders are done. The live newspaper feeds this spirit of endeavor. It searches constantly for examples of what concentration, united effort can do and will do; It employs words that Incite and cheer; it will exclude all that dispirits or enervates; it has hopeful air; it will not confess to failure. And the influence of steady, persistent, earnest, honest utterances day by day in favor of progress must certainly and beyond question have wholesome influence. They cannot fall flat, inert, lifeless. People are not disposed to find fault with a paper as long as it does not censure but only seeks out what It can praise in It* constituents. They are intelligent and what is pointed out to them a* beneficial, they can weigh for themselves and determine ita value. Constant, cheery, wholesome lueUemaat to beet effort most and will b«ar fruit. Thia Ui true of any people anywhere.

Rubrlght, a brief account~of which appeared in yesterday's paper, and about which many contradictory reports .went out, we would say that we caused >lr. Hubright himself to be interviewed and his version of it is that he went to work after dinner in the Keystone foundry; that a gang of workmen had been teasing his brother Greely, aged 15, who assisted him in molding work; that two of them offered gross' Insults to his brother and that Traister standing by made a remark to which his brother replied by an oath; that Traister threatened to settle with him outside and that Greeley said he could do it now. Greeley and Traister went outside; he followed and when he got out, Traister bad bis brother against the side of the houBe and was smacking his mouth with his hand. Seized with an uncontrollable fit of anger, he hav s ing the tamping iron in bis hand, struck Traister with it. He said'that the recollection of the persecution of his brother and the sight of Traister slapping him caused him to lose control of himself. He expressed to the reporter the great- eat sorrow and regret for theT^bfccur- rance. As soon as the affair happened, he gave himself up to Justice Cadwell and as soon as he obtained bail went to Traister's and begged his pardon; he was to see him again this morning. Our reporter interviewed several spectators, who substantially agree with Kubright in his statement. They say. that Traister was not trying to hurt the boy, as he struck htm with his open hand. N»tlT*« of the Gilbert I-.!«nd« — Many 8perltnfn» of Manly »nd Womanly BxautT—• A Ciirlom Crowd — At Horn* la th<> Wn«-r—A Mi»rl<. A gentleman who hn.i visited many of the out uf t he way corners of the world gives thr following account of a group ot South Ken i-lnml* that Bre rarely visited by white men: There Is n race of people Hying almost exactly equidistant between ihe two continents nf America and Asia, who, though they dwell in (he tropl* urn! are not far distant from Iritids which are types of the InxuriousnpBS of vegetation, the abundance of moisture nnd the variety of scenery associated generally with the equatorial regions of the world, Htill have no words in their primitive language for such natural features ef a, river, stream, lake, pond, spring or other body of fresh water; or for a mountain, hill, valley, plain, crag or hlnff; fora meadow, pasture, field or grass pint of any kind; for any four footed nnlmal, save, perhaps, a species of rat; for any land bird; for bnt two or three fl oWeiTfof~ f r Q11 s^and f oFTHTTh i Serais ~br jnptalH l _BlinpIy_bccaiiEe none of these physical features belongTo^heif~lsnd. None of the fauna and flora BO common elsewhere are indigenous to that country. This singnlav region is now called the "Gilbert Islands," formerly known aa the "Kingsmlll Oroup," and locally, as the "Radick Chain" of Coral Atolls. They lie between 175 degs. and 177 dcgs. W. and 2 dega. S. nnd !iO mins. N. of the equator. On the Isothermic charts they are encircled by a line of their own, within which prevails the highest average temperature of any spot In the world, not that It seems to bo very "hot" there, but the temperature varies bnt little night or day, winter or summer. The gronp is mode up of some fifteen Islands lying close to each other in a long chain, running nearly north and south. Each island Is made of coral, bnllt, probably, on volcanic ^peaks, which are either the remains of a sunken continent or the highest point of areas of slowly rising laud. Whichever hypothesis Is correct there, these wonderful Islands are thousands of miles distant from the nearest Important bodies of land, each lying—to quote Professor Dana's words in his "Coral and Coral Islands" — "like a wreath" thrown npon the water" in the illimitable waste of the Pacille. The Gilbert Islanders, while probably nearly related to the Hawailans, are not their equals physically or mentally. Still they ore a flno looking people, nnd among them may be found many specimens of manly and womanly beauty. There Is no difliculty in noti.ig their physical clmrac- terlstlcs, as the ordinary "clothing" of the men is a short mat wrapped around the middle, and of the women a thick fringed belt tied about the hips jiifit below the waist. Sometimes the females—th« older ones—arc further screened by a child carelessly thrown over the back or riding astride of one hip, but this is only done when the howling youngsters refuse to be left behind when the villagers rush to the beach to see the white strangers. The young girls often coquettlshly screen Their heads and necks—from the sun—with broad fans simply braided from a palm lent. One article of dress they much affect are pretty little models of a woman's bonnet of the "coal scuttle" pattern. These are not worn on the head, where they would look ridiculous, being only big enough for a small doll! but are fastened to their coal black, glossy hair, which Is very abundant, and of which they are very vain. This rather scant costume is completed by suspending about the neck a flat disk cut from a pearly shell, but that this Is not strictly an essential part of their dress was proven by their taking off and giving us several of them—for tobacco! The crowd that mustered on. the beach as we landed was noisy and curious, but good naturally so.' When, as happened In a few instances, they were not accustomed to a near view of "white" men, they—the young witches of girls especially —Indulged In much merriment at our un- ,coutb appearance. They made great fun, our Interpreter told us, of the heavy ^homes'' (broad leafed hate) wo wore, of onr being wrapped up In clothes, and of our feet being cased in little canoes (our shoes), BO that we could hardly wade through the loose, dry sand. .But . whe.n from the pockets of our "loose skins" we drew plugs of tobacco, their ridicule changed to respectful admiration, and a hundred little attentions were paid us) They knew what tobacco was, and coveted It. ; The Gilbert Islanders manage to have a good deal of fun. Being as much at home In the water as they are on what land they have, they all—Uig and little—go In bathing at nil hours of the day nnd moonlight nights. What they can't do in. and under the water isn't worth attempting. Ill the serioiut business of fishing, too, they are up to all sorts of tricks. A man ~ will provide himself with a lot of water tight cocoanut shells as floats, and from each ho suspends three or four short lines armed with fish hooks made out of sharp ttsh bones. These ho takes in his canoe, and, going out a little way. baits his hooks and sets the shells floating about. Soon he will see one. bob and whirl around, and then, slipping overboard, he disappears under the water for a time. I While down he goes from f}oat to float, ' detaching the flsh from the hook, stowing them into a net hung around his neck; ' bolts the hook from a supply he curries In his mouth, and eventually returns to his canoe with his net crowded full. All this he does without taking breath, apparently. I At times they will discover some spot. in the lagoon where a shark has estab- , lished himself. They will feed him for a day or two with a mixture of flsh and cocoanut meat until he is gorged. Then, calling the village out to help in the sport, a thick rope of cocoanut fibre Is laid along the beach, the noosed end being carried out in a cnnoe until over the sleeping brute. One man then slides overboard, I aud, quietly descending, manages to slip .m.i the noose over the shark's tali and draw , It tight. This being done, the signal la -<-. , rf given, and ns the crowd of villagers, '_FflCfe (gf chanting merrily, tramp over the beaah JVrnlinrltlot <A I.)rTi<>n«, The Hcheti l<s remarkable for the grt'nt which It livri; there 1* gwrt ground for boliev'-K that they endure as long as 100 years. An nnthority states that some plants have been found by actual observation to endure 4"i years. Their growth is exceedingly sluw, Indicating that only a little- nourishment, serves to keep them alive. Tn » dry time they have power of suspending growth altogether, renewing It again at the fit 11 of rain. In time of rain they change their color, becoming (greener. Another Interesting fact about lichens IM that they grow only whero the air Is free from smoke or dust. They are never found growing in the neighborhood of towns, where the atmosphere Is Impregnated with soot and smoke. Thus these plnnt.s afford ftn Indication of th* purity of the air.—Forest and Streard.

Of course people cannot expect a first class deky for a couple of rupees; although the best of everything Is generally understood to be the cheapest in the end, It takes money to buy marble, red paint and gold leaf.—Thomas Stevens in Outing. A great many .young lawyers come out of the law schools every year who find It difficult for many months to make enough to live on In their profession. It Is hard to get money for office rent, hard to keep the ball rolling or to follow the social cue. In former days, in the day* when all lawyers took their term of training In some old lawyer's office, young men were glad to pay a small sum yearly for 'desk room and for a chance to • serve under a wise head. A legal friend of The Athenian declares that nowadays It U Impossible to find a young man willing to serve an apprenticeship such as he served, even for pay. He said he would be glad to give office room and a reasonable salary to any young fledgling who could make himself useful while gaining years and wisdom. Bnt, strange to Bay, It Is not possible to find a young lawyer willing to take the training and money.—Boston Advertiser. "As-l sat hy the window the other afternoon," nald aslckrnun, "and looked at the people as they trudged along In the sleet nnd snow, It occurred to me that a sprained ankle, as well aa the mnsqnito. had its uses.

Suddenly I was startled by hearing shrill tolces speaking In a foreign language, and glancing up saw two Italians of the male sex hastening toward each other.
