After the ride, the young people had a dance. —Sims' Hole was fully described by Mr. Sims' himself In a work published some thirty years ago. Any Cincinnati publishing house probably has it. _A number of our G«Tman"people went out Bast night and made a party upon Mrs. Pfulb, who lives with her son Henry in Jordan. It {was her 72d birthday. —Mrs. Newton EUraaker is devoting her leisure to painting, and especially in animal painting, has been much extolled by her friends. —Our heart IB just burdened with sadness because of the epidemic of calamities that has been prevailing hereBbonts.for ; the past two weeks. -In response to an Inquiry we would state that the name Candlemas is given to the 2nd of February because of the great number of lights used by the church on that occasion.-the purification of the Virgin Mary. -Deacon M. L. Whitman, aged 82 years, stopping with Lewis Wolf in the First ward, and widely known as an old resident and identified with the Baptist church here for upwards of thirty years, is dangerously ill, and his death may be expected at any time. —Burglars made two separate at tempts to enter the house of Mr. A. B. Spies on Tuesday night, but were frightened off In both instances by Mrs Spies in her husband's absence from the city. Aa it happened on the same night it is not unlikely they are the same parties who tried to enter Kev. Mr. Parker's residence. -Chronological: To-day is the an- nivers ary of the birth of Horace Greeley, in 1811. Although passed out of life and out of the memory of most people, Mr. Greeley was for many years one of the foremost men of this country —We have been informed that the ; company which sought to collect the drive well royalty is solvent and that It can and will relmbnre those who have paid them. In any svent those who have paid should forward their claims for collection. _ If all would unite in presenting them, the cost of doing so would be so slight as not to be felt by any one. —According to the widely accepted tradition, the ground hog failed of seeing its shadow yesterday in this locality and hence we are to have an early ipring. But how about those localities where it was able to see It? And also those where the animal dosn't live? Far be it from us to cast ridicule upon so honored a faith aa this; but just suppose Jt had been cloudy at Fulton and clear at Sterling, as it sometimes is, bow would it be possible for one place to have an early spring and the other six weeks more of winter weather? This ground hog business reminds us that in England as well as this country when the horns of the moon are up it will be dry weather, while In Scotland, it is just the reverse. It is possible to find in Great Britain people living within a mile of one another—one in Scotland and another in Englaad—which hold exactly opposite views, viz : In .the former that that the horns up mean wet weather, in the latter, the horns down, mean dry weather. How can it be possible that both statements are true ? You nwl not go one stop farther than the Boston Store for [anything in th» world that is to be found in a dry goods sto'-e anywhere.

The first witness called was W. A. Berry, of the Bock Island elevator; said the tragedy occurred near midnight,—the forward one going 10 miles, the roar one 15 miles an hour; could see the red lights 20 rods; he was in elevator at time of accident and ran out to look; the appearance of snow where the men fell was that one fell upon his knees and slided under the train; that the other it looked as if two men had scullled and pulled themselves under; the ground was level, but there was 18 Inches of soft snow; accounts for their rolling in this way, that after falling they grasped at one another and rolled under.

It was but Tuesday, three days ago, that we saw and accosted him at a short distance. He then looked pale and careworn; that evening he was driven to his bed and last night at 9:80 o'clock his spirit passed away. There Is that which is terrible in the thought that one we greeted upon the street but three days since, possessed of energy to walk, to think and to transact business, now lies dead; that which made bis entity and constructed his character gone forever, and that onr eyes shall see him no more. It admonishes all of us that In the midst of life we are in death, and that none may predicate even- of the near future.
