Her Illness has been protracted and she con- t'nues very weak Indeed. — There has been depided activity in real estate at Sterling in the past four weeks. An encouraging feature is the number of working men who are buy- Ing lots to build them homes. . —The members of the W. C. T. U. will on Friday evening* Feb. 10 give an oyster supper and dispose of a qnilt for the benefit of Coino Sund&y school at the Como church. All are cordially Invited. By order of the president. —At the meeting last 'Wednesday evening held at the Council. Rooms it was deblded to hold a . meeting every Wednesday night until arrangements are perfected for building the proposed new dam. ,.T^MlssJGleorgleJUianett_hns..rcs!igned her position in Mr. J. K. Chester's and is in Chicago on her way to Hastings, Neb., where she will reside with her mother. Miss Oeorgle leave.3 many friends here at Sterling, who will regret her departure. — Mrg. Kn >wles complains that parties have been helping themselves to her coal; that she has found the marks of shoes as well as of two fine-cut-tobacco pails in the snow by her coal shed. She wants it stopped and thinks that thieves ought to go to those better able to lose than she. , ______ —For the benefit of some who do not know how the dam business is progressing, we are Instructed to say that the committee are still at work securing the right to overflow and expect to be able to make a report on next WeoV nesday night, that will be quite satisfactory to everyone. —Another snow storm to-day. The ground hogs must all have been dead before the second of February, or else they all were so sound asleep that they forgot to come out at all; or else the clerk of the weather has concluded to no longer let that animal be the harbinger of early or late spring, as its movemsnts may be. . — Mr; J. Mlsbler has not sold either of his farms and will not until the 18th of February. Some parties have circulated a report to the effect that he has done so; he cannot understand why they should have so said, as it has been and is his purpose to sell on the 18th as advertised, and not until then, under any circumstances. " ' — Mr. Qeo'ge Getz Is suffering with a badly inflamed hand, caused by catching cold in a bruised finger, wbil& his wife has the quinsy and la unable to take food as usual, because of the swollen condition of her throat. While neither are dangerously ill, still being alone, (their children having gone to California) it renders tham very uncomfortable this stormy weather. ' —Racing on the boulevards Sundays will not be allowed hereafter. The officers will stop any effort at fast driving. Last Sunday there were three runaways, and there was near to being a tragedy, and one party was run into from behind and near to being apiked by a shaft. So the danger of this racing aa well as the morals involved will cause the officers to stop It promptly. This applies to the other streets as well aa to the boulevards. —The Publishers and Editors association of Whitealde county met in the office of the Morrison Sentinel yesterday afternoon. President Bent presided and A. W. Baatlan secretary was at bis post. The Fulton Journal, Morrison Sentinel, Morrison Herald, Sterling Standard, Sterling Gazette were represented by, respectively, A. W. Bastian, Charles Bent, Geo. B. Adams, J. W. Newcomer and C. John. Matters of Interest to the profession were freely talked over. The next meeting will beheld at Fulton. -We understand that the clothing business of th« late Isaac Wolf will be continued by his wife. Speaking of Mr. Wolf since his death to Mr. David Lingel, the latter told us that he never knew the deceased to refuse to give to an object of charity; that be aald he would rather give to a dozen bad persons than to let one good object escape him. lie added that he fairly idolized his own children and extended his fondness for children to others, being particularly kind to hU ( Mr. Llngal'*}. He Ukewiae referred to Isaac's devotion and care for bis mother anil sljter, which be wti p*rtieui*rly uaerstorioa*. —At the City Council last nipht Alderman Werntz thanked Alderman Platt heartily for hi3 assistance in the matter of securing plans and specifications for the proposed city building. —Remember the Citb.ens' meeting In the Council rooms tomorrow night. An Interesting report on overflow hind Is promised. Let there bb a full, rousing turnout. —Again, we would urge upon teachers to Bee that there pupils do not nit in draughts of wind. We speak, of it because complaints have come in to this office that due care is not taken in some instances. —Born this morning to Dr. and Mrs. J. Frank Keefer, a girl. Frank is nearly as proud over the event as his father, who Is at Morrison, will be when he reads this item and learns that he is a grandfather. —William Wilkinson, of Hopkins, tied his team in front of Chester's last evening and when he started to go home couldn't find it. He had officers and others to help him in looking, and finally after much quest, going back to the same place where it was first hitched, he found it all right. Some one had borrowed it and driven it around town. Still, that Is a violation of law. —In writing notices or communications for the GAZETTE, please write on but one side of the paper, leave a margin of an inch on the left side of th? paper, and be particular to write out every word in full. "Eve," meaning evening should be avoided; also write out days of the week and mouth. We can attend to the punctuation but abbreviated words olten necessitate our writing out an entire article. —The following attorneys are pres ent at this term of the circuit court; Walter Stager states attorney, C. I. Sheldon master In chancery, ,1. E. Me- Pherran, D. S. Efner, Walter Haskell, W. D. Barge, (.'•. C. Johnson, W. II. Allen.,1. W. White, A. A. Wolfersberger, W. J. McCoy, V. S. Ferguson, J. and.J. Dlnsmoor, O. F. Woodruff, J. D. Andrews, Jno. G. Manahan, II. C. Ward, W. H. Bennett, Henry Green, O. F. Marfleet, J. W. Alexander, Charles F. White of Chicago and H. K Malone of Wisconsin. Mr. Bargo is of Dixon; the others are all of Whiteaide. L. K Tut- tl6l8TBlerk,~GeoTG;'Keefer sheriff with C. C. Fuller, M. Lumm and Fred Hines as bailiffs. —At a p"oint two 'and"a"fialf~milef< west of DoKalb, the Clinton passenger, last night had an accident befall the engine. The train was delayed two hours in consequence. The breaking of a pin on one Bide caused all the work to be done by the other; the overstrain broke the driving rod, which played havoc 'with the cab, it also caused escape of steam and hot water into the cab, scalding engineer Larry Gagln who lives at Sterling. He got the air brakes IHed so as to stop the train after it had run a mile down grade. The engineer and fireman then Jumped from the engine, being driven, off-by the steam. Another engine was finally secured and the train pushed ahead and arrived at Clinton about 11 o'clock. Mr. Gagln will be laid up for about a week. —A too common Impression prevails that an editor too gladly gobbles all that comrs in his way and exultingly puts the same in his paper. While we can truthfully say that all our reading and study and conversation are with reference to the' GAZETTE and tbat we are all the time on the lookout for matter that may be of interest to our renders, yet It is none the less true that the job of knowing what not to put in is harder than anything else. To add to this labor, not a day passes but some one or more comes In and requests that an item, which in most cases hits already been written and set in type ready for the paper, be left out because it will hurt this or that one's feelings. We try to be merciful and we would not add to the sorrow of any human being, but sometimes we think that those making request are over sensitive, or over exacting. People insist upon having the news; we try to give it in unprejudiced manner; if we had left out though all that had beeu ashed of us, some days the^ paper would have been scant of local jftems. A man gets in a fight, or has a runaway or does something improper on Sunday, or gets drunk and disturbs the peace, or has a business deal of some sort, or something-or other happens, and he concludes it is his own private affair, so he rushes to the editor and takes up anywhere from ten to forty minutes of his time to prove to him that it should not go into the paper. Wo have observed, too, in several instances that those asking this favor are those who have previously chided us for doing the same favor for others^ Sometimes it is a question with us whether we have the right to leave out, and particularly In cases where the publication would prove warning to others. —As will be seen elsewhere, seven indictments were found by the grand jury. The jury did its work speedily and adjourned. States attorney Staler is to be congratulated upon the expedi tloii used i»nd the successful finding of the indictments. Three of the guilty parties plead guilty before dinner. Of late years parties inducted decline to fight, but choose to plead guilty. The last one who held out, if we remember right, answered not guilty, was hung. The States attorney is cautious and careful, and if we lemember right no man indicted by any grand jury since his going into office has escaped punish- meut. C^H'I'M'K't*. „ ~" Chimes of Normandy.

Alderman Palmer offered a resolution instructing the committee on public imp'rovemdnta to purchase an iron watering trough and place it on the corner of Third street and- Avenue B. (A wooden one stands there now- south of Hause's livery stable.) The treasurer's report shows on hand Feb. 1: Consolidated fund 82:45; water fund 863.41; library fund 830.41; light fund83l.»2; sewerage fund 82,058.87; total 82,797.90 Alderman Bell being absent, the consideration of a city building was postponed. The bell ordinance evoked considerable discussion, but no action was taken and the ordinance remains as it was. The Council adjourned after some talk by some of the alderman on the subject of additional lights and also electric lights upon the bridge. —There is "kicking" at Dixon among parties who have been working for the shoe factory, they alleging that they could not support themselves comfortable upon the wages paid there. -One party declared to our represntative that it was proposed soon to have hands work by the piece and that at the price to be paid,, wages would be still lower. Of course we have no knowledge of this matter other than what is said by ex-employes, and would not speak of it except that so many complaints have come in to us on said score. Aa we have said before, we wish Dixon well and-hope that the Henderson factory will prove a bonanza to that city; but it, or no other factory can be profitable to that or any other people except it pays good living wages. It may do so; we don't know; we do know that infinite complaints are made that the wages are altogether too small. —Circuit court conversed at about 4:30 yesterday afternoon, Judge Grin^ nell presiding. His presence excited general interest, a big crowd being at the train and followed him up to and in the court house. He is not of the heavy build that judges are supposed to be, but is rather small in size and of rather low height and contrary to the traditions, wears a mustache. He began at once by appointing a foreman for the grand jury when States Attorney Stager pave that body its Instructions and the Judge directed that they carry out the charge of the States Attorney. After the jury had retired the petit jurors were called, when three or four were excused. A call of the docket wai then made, some of the casea being dismissed, a majority passed for the time and for the term «nd others set for trial. Court then at about 8 o'clock p. m,, adjourmd until 9 JLot« tor Male. , I will offer for a few days my remaining 4 lots in Park Place at a bargain as 1 want to dispose of them. Call on GEO. W.
