BBF.VITIKW. —Mrs. Fogg sa quite ill, her malady hating taken a turn for the worse. —The town board of highway commissioners held its, regular session this morning. —A number of Germans went out n sleighs to Mr. Adam Glffro's on Saturday evening. —While the aun shines warm today, ;he prevailing wind, laden with moisture beat chill against those exposed to it. —Circuit court will convene this afternoon ^about 4:40 o'clock, Judge Grinnel presiding. He is to arrive on .he train that gets hero at 4:04. —The war on rates haa resulted In a cut of about one-half on freights be- ween Chicago and the Mlssooriy river, and tbe result la that Sterling gets lotne benefit In goods westward bound. —Mayor Warner is out in a card leclarlng he will not be a candidate or reelection aa May or of Dixon, and he Dixon Telegraph says that Col. No)le Is the only one spoken of as Mr. Warner's successor, and adds that If ,e will accept, be can be electe'd wittt- ut opposition, —A number of the young friends of jouls Reltzel went out to Milledge- llle tcrseo him on Sunday, and report hat he is getting along nlcoly in rccov- ring from the terrible mangling he re- elved in the mill. He Is cneerful and f good courage, and hopes to ultimate- y recover In pretty good shape. —At to-night's meeting of the City Council the city hall matter will come ip for consideration, and will probably ie brought to a vote. The plan shows moat elegant structure, one which, spends upon its stately and imposing hape and its dimensions, rather than pon ornamentation, for its beauty. —Miss Hattle Abbott, killed, and Mrs. Cyra Battey, and Miss Bertie Bat- <ey injured at Steamburg Station, New fork, yesterday, and said by the Triune to be from Sterling, according to he Times lived at Sheffield, this State. Diligent enquiry failed to discover any cqualnted with these ladies; hence, we assume the Times to'be correct, or o be mose precise, the Tribune to be ncorrect. f 1 —A young couple who were out for he enjoyment of the beautiful weath- r and grand sleighing on Sunday af- «rnoon were spilled out of the cutter nto a snow bank, up on Sixth avenue uat as slick as could be, by one of the nes slipping from the driver, turning ie horse into the ditch. No harm to ig or occupants. But while the couple •ere gone for ten minutes after the one, somebody gobbled the blankets iat were left where the accident oo- urred. —Mr. and Mrs. Sol Seeley. gave a re- eptlon on Saturday evening to their aughter Miss Dcllle and her friend, Mlsa Elsie, of Chicago. The evening. •as spent In dancing and card playing, inglng and playing- on musical in- truments. Home forty guests were resent. The wants of the Innur man ere carefully looked after, Mr. and Mrs. Seely serving the company with n elegant repast. The occasion was Miss Collie's birthday.. The two young adles returned to Chicago this morn- ng. ' —The .editor acknowledges receipt t a hearty invitation fron Colonel H. '. Noble to be present at the farmers' ongress to be held a Dixon this week. He says in his letter that these, meet- nga held elsewhere have dona great ood and that this one will doubtless va profitable. We should be glad to be resent, were it possible to get away rom our daily grind and would add hat while there Is tbe objectionable eature to the programme of two or hree professional politicians down for" peeches, yet there are several most Ingres ting papers promised by practical 'armers. —Yesterday morning early our thermometer registered two degrees above zero. At 12 o'clock noon, we observed that it stood at 14 degrees above, and yet snow was melting slowly upon the sidewalk at the time, it hung on the north side of a post of a porch on tbe west side of the house. We transferee} t to the south side of the house, where the sun could strike < it, and in ' five minutes it arose to 34 degrees above, a change of 20 degrees; and yet we removed it but ten feet. This la proof that much does depend, upon the] position of the thermometer out of doors Returning it to Its former position, In a few momenta It again fell to 14 degrees above. ' • . - ' —The remains of the late Isaac Wolf accompanied by his family, and also by Messrs. H. S. Street, Benj, Ourtisen Mr. Loos and D. B. Holtalander, representing the Odd Fellows, and Messrs Louis Oltmanns and Nicholas Gaol' rapp, Sr., representing the MennechoT society (he was a member of both these orders), weie taken Into Chibago yes terday morning on the limited train; at one o'clock, they placed upon the funeral train and taken to Rose Hill cemetery, where brief services were held lo toe cemetery chapel, Rubbl Hlrtob officiating. Next Sunday regular fun era! services will be held in the Rabbi* synagogue, the family to be preseo with tbe other friends of tbe deceased The family and toe geuUeaien n*cn»K above, returned on tbs limited tut —The death of Morrison at Tine reek and tha dangerous illness of six others from drinking alcohol, high wines, or whisky bought fro-n a ped ar of a Chicago house la but another sroof of what the GAZETTE has so of;en insisted, viz., that the place to buy roods la from home people. Of cour&e ;he GAZETTE doesn't advise the buy- Ing of whisky anywhere; but this Chicago house sells groceries as wall aa whisky, and if its Whisky Is so drugged that It kills a man outright, it would follow that its other goods are adulterated. No one Is such a fool as to hold that any whisky, Injurious as that article maybe, would kill one man and nearly kill six more from a single drinking,—It matters not how far it was carried. We have always advised our readers to buy f spm home merchants; we know they can do better. This foul whisky that killed this man s but proof that the kind of goods carried by these pedlars from Chicago louses are not what our people should buy. Of course, adulterated teas, cof- ees, sugars and other goods would not kill outright like the whiady did, rat they are harmful just the same. Our grocery merchants sail on small margins, and if these Chicago pedlars ell cheaper, they can only do it by sell- ng greatly Inferior goods,—goods that lave been adulterated, as this whisky vldently wna. Again the GAZETTE repeats: Buy from home merchants. —Deacon M. L. Whitman haa passed rom earth to that reward which un- uestlonably belongs to those who alth fully, earnestly and persistently uraue tho cultivation of Christian haracter. It Is exceptional to find a lyman so thoroughly committed In word and work to the church as was )eacon Whitman. Coming here upwards of thirty years since and flnd- ng no organized Baptist church here, e with a few others In ifioO organized he First Baptist church of this city, nd from that hour until his death, he •as actively identified with its inter- sta and loved It as he loved scarcely nythlng else. The church, too, felt hat the deacon was a part of Its being nd the members all knew that In all hlngs, at'all times and in all places he •as thoroughly and essentially a Bapst—a Christian,—one who was de- oted to the .church and to the cause f Christ. The deacon leaves no pro- erty; Indeed, the good things of this fe did not come to him as to others, ut worry about temporal things was 0 part of his nature. He lived long, or he had passed his eighty-flrit ear; but death would have found him •eady at any time. He leaves a wife, daughter and grandchildren to mourn is loss and to remember his life. One f the windows of the First Baptist tmrch bears his name, a memorial laced there by a friend who sought hus to testify the old man's zeal and ove tor the church. The funeral aer- ices took place this afternoon at 3 'clock. He was born at Falrfleld, New ork,June 1,1800; was married Nov. A, 1832 to Emellne Platt, who survives Irn. He joined the Baptist church tty years ago; has been for 20 years deacon and S2 yean a teacher in the hurch. —We feel an Interest In that horse, market project. At present farmers eel that while horses aell readily that here la large amount of jockeying one in trading, and moreover that it emanda considerable higgling and al- 1 that much Ignorance prevails aa to he value of horses on the part of many uyers. .If there were, however, a horse market here, run by men thoroughly ompetent to determine values, ready o pay spot cash, honest and truthful; n other words, if farmers felt that ley could take horaeu to town and sell hem on their actual value as they now an aell corn and wheat and oats, there la no question but that they would alse three or four horses where they ow raise one. It la obviously-true that t pays much better, far, far better to also horses than to raise grain or cat- le; It la not necessary to stop to prove his. The only trouble in the world as been the fact that the market is ot so absolutely certain. We have re- erred to the fact that Chambersburg la .a big hone market and that It pays well to deal In horses there. It does not demand argument to show that if t pays to have a horse market at hambersburg, it will pay 'to have one here. That statement likewise is ax- omatic,—proved without argument. Tor certainty if men at Chambersburg :an afford to send men out here and at ther western points to pick out horses aking two or three weeks to pick up a Ingle carload, fcnd then haul, them to /hambersburg, and after getting them there, hire men to get them into tip top condition for market, it follows so >lainly that a blind'' man can see, ,hat it will pay Inflnitely better .0 have men right here where the lorses are raised, and where they can latten them themselves. Once It was mown that Sterling was a horse mar- cet orders would come In from the east for them. Or men could be 'sent on east—to Philadelphia, New iTork, Boa- ion and other eastern points with carloads, letting the fact, be known by a dollar's worth of advertising a day or two in advance. Here is a great big chance for some folks to make some money and we wish to see them do it There's no envy in our bones or skin- not a bit; we don't care who makes the money, so that the horse market Is started up. Of course, we've plenty of men who have money, and of course we have plenty of men who have judg ment and knowledge and experience and we have men who have been think lug seriously over the matter. W have no census book at hand to tel us the population of Chambersburg but our leaullectioa is that, even if ii.i rebels did occupy it once during Un war, still that Sterling is larger in population; and what is more and better to tbo point uuder consideration H i* undealably txu* Ui»t UxU Is » bet- : point! for buying horses than la Chambersburg, and if Chamberaburg could sell upwards of a million dollars worth of horses last year, it. follows that Sterling could nee that and go I' a million better in a year or two, once the market WAS started. —Saturday morning as one of our carriers, Johnnie Reed, was making his round of collecting, and got to the house of Mr. Jacob Hey, after knock- ng three or four times he heard some unusual noire and entered. He found ;he house impregnaetd with gas from a base burner stove and the old gentleman stretched upon his bed in an almost unconscious state and unable to :o speak. Johnnie called in neighbors and Mr. Hey was relieved from his dangerous situation. As Mr. Hey was alone in tho house, it is probable but 'or the timely arrival of young Reed, he would have lost his life. —Rev.
