W. Newcomer gave a tea-party to a number of their friends last evening, —Mrs. Rutt, mother of Mrs. Simon Brenneman, is lying at the point of death with gangrene.- --—The teachers of the Third ward school and some of the Second ward teachers went up to Dixon to-day In sleighs. —Quite a number of Sterling people will go to Mary Dietrich's near Stone'Statioa to-night It is a leap- year invited patty. —A lady living at Mr. Wm. Hess' was thrown from a cutter yesterday evening. She escaped injury, but the horse severed on artery in one of Its hind legs. —Chronological: To-day is the anniversary of the meeting of the Confe* erate Congress at Montgomery, in 1881. To-morrow is the anniversary of the battle of Hatcher's run, Va., in 1805. —Reports were around town last night and this morning that Mr. Traister was dying or dead. To the contrary of this, he Is doing as well aa could be expected and his re )overy Is confidently expected. —Union Lodge No. 3, A. O, U. W, went up to Dixon last night to attend a meeting of Dixon Lodge of the same order, they having beeu invited over They went in sleighs and greatly enjoyed drive and visit. —Swan Peterson plead guilty yesterday in Judge McCoy's court to a charge of selling liquor at Deer Crove without license and was sentenced to 200 days in the county jail, where he will have abundance of time to ruminate upon the danger of violating the laws of this great commonwealth. —George and John Sullivan get 00 days each in the county jail, sentenced by Judge McCoy yesterday. It will be remembered that these two individuals stole an overcoat from a dummy In front of Isaac Wolf's store a couple of weeks ago. These two, Peterson and Rainone. all plead guilty. State's attorney Stager appeared and after making a'statement in each case to the court, they were sentenced as stated. —Mr. J. N. Hyde, of Dixon, a one- legged soldier, Is candidate for State auditor. Whatever Mr. Hyde's merits, and we understand he was ajbrave and good soldier, and is a good citizen and competent to fill the office, the Republican party is not likely to take two candidates for State office from the same county, and Mr. Dement happening to be within the charmed circle of party managers, Is most apt to get ahead of Mr. Hyde. —Old Timer has laid up all the winter, but this morning a friend brought him in to see us on his cutter. The old gentleman has changed greatly. His old time garrulity is all gone, and when we said we thought this the longest siege of winter fog we had ever seen, he readily acquiesced. So great is the change in him, that if he had not f begged a quid ot tobacco ana retained I the whole plug, we should have feared I*! | he was near the end of his journey. '—The Geneseo Republic says that at a recent meeting of the Business Men's Association of that place, parties present from Galesburg said that at the —Mr. Fol. Seeley again requests settlers to have their taken without delay, AS it is not possible to delay much longer the taking of that group picture, anrl those not doing so iwill hare to be left out,— a contingency it pains him to think of. —A six-year-old boy of Sterling had the following chapter of accidents to befall him In a single day. Before breakfast burned his finger badly trying to hook a bit of potato out of the frying pan on ths stove. At ten o'clock or thereabouts fell off a chair and made a big bump on his head, and an hour later utterly mined a new suit by tipping over into a tub of slops. Just before dinner while out sledding with a boy a little older, was thrown off and skinned his left shin very badly. Two o'clock, while playing In the hall upstairs slipped, fell and rolled to the bottom, picked up unconscious, but rallied in a little while; was given the house-cat to play with, pulled its tall, and bad his hands scratched from end to end. Along about five o'clock, In taking scissors away from_his little brother, had one of the blades to enter bis cheek about a-half-inch below the left eye. Finally and as a climax, after supper, insisting on running about the room, he ran against the table and knocked over the lamp, which broke all to pieces, but which by an infinite miracle, went out in falling. The youth however In going over with the lamp, had a piece of the glass to enter his thigh. When his father had dressed that wound his mother took him to bed and ended his troubles for one day. —The remains of the late Isaac Wolf will be taken to Chicago to-morrow, Sunday morning, on the limited and taken to Chicago depot, and thencs will be borne to Rose Hill cemetery, where they will be interred according to the Jewish faith, in which Mr. Wolf was brought up. The suddenness and consequent unexpectedness of his demise have added to the regrets and sorrow which so sad an event would ordinarily excite at the death of a man so widely known and so heartily indentlfled with- the interests of our city. Looking back now, all who knew him well can see that he was afflicted greatly and that his death should not have been so great a matter of surprise, but the chasm between life and death —The Odd Fellows will escort the remains of the late Isaac Wolf to the .Northwestern depot to-morrow morning and an escort, composed of the following named gentlemen, will accompany the remains to Chicago and thence to Rose Hill cemetery: U.S. Street, Benj.

Of course all of us would be glad Indeed to see that road constructed. - —Lulgl Bainone, the Italian who iiaa been In jail for two months, charg- ed'with assault with deadly weapon' up on his brother-in-law, yesterday pleat guilty before Judge McCoy's court and was sentenced to three months in th younty jail. While Hainone shot at his brother-in-law, he declared he had n purpose to hit him, but only endeavor ed to frighten himjbesides behad be«o knocked down by his uiater'»,husband. Rainone's character h£d previously been good. In view of these facts and the further one.that he had lain in jail two months, the judge gave but three months in the county jnll. Rainone promises upon his release to go to work and continue In peace with everybody. —Over at Oregon at the close of tbe term of the circuit court, the jury sent to Chicago for a hat to present to Judge Grlnnell, w; : » testimonial of, esteem. The evening was set for the presentation and. the speeches, that of presentation and bis own of acceptance, had to be' made just the same aa though the hat was on land, but it didn't come just tb« same. The Judge is somewhat amused at tha greai curiosity of people to see Jim,—"the man who tried (prosecuted) the Anarchists," M they tell him a hundred or two times a day when he is In the country. Aa Whlt««lde people are human, it is probable that hitpre- euco at this term of tbe court will eattte number* to go to Morrison to •WhUa, M tl»«y want to Oregon tot tho •*%* is so great,—it is so...utterly impossible for humanity to realize what death is and Its manner of coming, that so long as one nils his place among us and Is one of us, It Is not possible that we can realize that the land of shadows and the unknown is so close at hand. It came to him suddenly this thing we call death and his place will not be tilled by him again. The deceased was a kind hearted man who lived in good fellowship with hla-nelghbors. The shadows are deep in his household and those remaining there sorrow greatly. Their only solace can be found In the memory of his life which is better known to them, to whom he unbou&m- ed himself, than to his friends on the outside, however near they might be. His long afflicted body now has foand rest, and his spirit Is with God who gave'it. ' .. ' —Absence of moisture marked this latitude all last year, .and we had to "waste-basket" several articles sent to us for publication to which it was claimed that the drainage of swamp lands had so interferred with the ordinary processes of evaporation, radiation, rainfall, etc., that the clouds for the future would withhold their moisture and that the harvests would be a thing of the past; We did not publish them, lest by so doing some might really be scared Into thinking it true and be offering their farms and other property for sale at a-sacrifice. We didn't think there was as much in it as they would have ns believe and whether we believed or not, we should have done «o anyway, preferring to wait for the evil day rather than antl- ipate its coming. Our motto Is, Hold ast.on to hope—let it always be for he best.

It may be true—probably is, that summer, strictly local rains, restricted to very small areas and evidently brought about by mainly local causes may be affected somewhat in large drainage areas by this practice of ditching and tiling; but it is not possible to declare how far out the Influence of rain ex tends. The infinitesimal atom of water picked up by a sunbeam in the far-off Indian Ocean may be carried a'ong in air until it reaches Wblteside, where it may be condensed with millions of others and fall in a Sterling alley, or on the nose of a frightened dog on Third street, running albng to get out of the approaching storm. If summer rains were all local, and all local rains were due to local causes only, there might be. danger; but, as we say, one can't tell whether local rain? are strictly local as to cause, and while the influence of drainage maybe felt and most where there is large drainage area, it is doubtful whether the damage can be appreciated in a locality so near to the great lakes as ours. lor Hale.
