The p'rogram given by the Temperance Society was of a musical and literary nature and was a decided success. The audience was large, every seat in the Academy of Music being taken and many were compelled to stand. Bach number of the^ program was excellent and each was appreciated by the large audience who applauded bsartily. * Bd.'MeQlnn, President of the society served efficiently as Chairman, Prestin's concert orchestra played two selections. A medley of patriotic airs was the first number. This selection caught thaBplritofthehousB.lt was render- •m Artistically and was vigorously applauded. ' Mr. McGinn .made the address of weldome. He said, the company was , fathered to celebrate the anniversary f day of Ireland's patron saint and to pay deserved homage to that much persecuted land. No land, he continu- «d, calls forth more devotion from all ages, and no land has passed through deeper trials. Her fame, her 1 sorrows and her joys have long been the theme of the poets. The entertainment, he Vaid was given "tcTrevive In the^~mlnds .of the youth the spirit of their father's* 1 faith and hope in old Ireland. Mr. Me •Glnn's sentiment in /conclusion was, •"May treayen hasten the day when dear old Ireland may be happy in freedom arid prosperity, and when that glad day comes, may she ever, like our own dear Columbia, bo the haven of refuge for the oppressed of every land.'.' • , At the conclusion of Mr. McGinn's excellent address the children sang, *'The Shamrock frond Glenore." Miss Lizzie McGrath was the accompanist: There were thirty-seven little tots, all dressed in white and wearing green jbair ribbons. Their singing was excellent. They were heartily applauded. M. 0. Ward then sang "The Minstrel ; Boy." Mr. Ward is always a favorite •with a Sterling audience as he well de- to be. He has an excellent bass 'voice and he sings in a highly artistic manner.

This was an answer to the address on' Oliver Cromwell recently delivered in Sterling by Dr. Gunsaulus., Its object was to.present the other side of Crom- <weU's character. ' Mr. Schmidt's ad- 'drees was well worded and was deliver- •e'd ID aaiekcellent manner. He showed Msoipiaionof Oliver Cromwell to be -well taken by citing many .historical facts in regard to that gentleman's ca> Seer in Ireland. , Mr. Schmidt, in the. beginning, qnot- 34 toe evening lines, from • Bobbie s, w VTa4Tome rpower theiif elcgle us, etc."tHe;called attention to the }ec- ture of Dr. Gunsaulus and censured that gentleman in no uncertain terms for the uniformly eulogistic tribute paid to Cromwell in the lecture here. The Gunsaulus lecture, Mr. Schmidt said, was a disappointment, coming as it did from a minister of the gospel. Ita tone conveyed approval of the life and character of one of the greatest buman butchers the world has ever seen.' He then rehearsed '.a story of Iralaad'a wrongs and 1 persecutions up to 1040.

Mr. Gallagher made ah excellent; address; bis delivery was excellent and his stage presence graceful. He paid a glowing tribute to St. Patrick and hla glorious deeds for old Ireland and epptee of the patriotism of the Irish race as. la shown in their heroic struggles in resisting oppression. He referred In stirring language to the exiles from their native land and to their children who are compelled to seek homes among strangers. He recited the'pathetic lines written by Campbell, the poet. ' • Mr. Gallagher drew a vivid picture of the change St. Patrick would see were he today to visit Ireland, the land which in his time was the seminary of all Europe. He told of the devastation of the fair land and its present pitiable plight; and paid a glowing tribute to the faithful, perservlng, tin- swerving loyalty of Ireland's sons, The speaker also referred to the widespread celebration of St. Patrick's Day. The Irishman, though driven from home, awakened the whole earth,' this morning with his shout, "St. Patrick's Day in the morning." It was heard round the world and has echoed and re-echoed all day long. In conclusion Mr. Gallagher paid a glowing eulogy to free America. He spoke of the Irishman's loyalty to his new home and of his devotion to it, notwithstanding his love for old Ireland. This countjy he said is a land of freedom; a land where religion Is not hypocrisy and where liberty is a reality., The oppressed Irishman, he said, is bound to raise his voice till Providence heals "Ireland's wounds and restores liberty to her people and freedom to her altars. • . Mr. Gallagher was heartily applauded. His sentiments struck a .responsive chord in the breasts of his audience. , •. "'; , The children then sang another selection. The program was concluded by "St. Patrick's Day." a selection by the orchestra. The entertainment was an unqualified success and the Temperance Society boys are to be congratulated on its uniform excellence. Dance Largely Attended. The dance held in the I. 0. O.F.Hall was largely attended, there being more than one hundred couples present. The music was furnished by Preatin's Orchestra.

The occasion was a genuine old-fashioned 'House Warming," given in honor of Mr. Grove's brother and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Louis A. Grove, who 1 " will next week leave for the East. It was planned by Mesdames Brimmer, Warner, Eeltzel and Loux. Mr. and Mrs. Grove simply furnished the house, and it was a decided and complete success in every respect. ' . • More than one hundred guests wete present, the first arriving as early as 7:30 o'clock, and so thoroughly was the evening enjoyed, that the' departure for home was not taken until the hour of twelve. The spacious new Grove residence was lighted from cellar to garret, and from the street, a prettier Bight was never seen In the city. Many a passerby gazed in with envy and wished that he, too, might be counted amtog the merry guests. All who were present inspected the new house throughout and there was not one who did not pronounce it perfect in every detail. The finishings and furniture are of the best and every appointment is planned for both usefulness and beauty. Mr. and Mrs, Grove received numerous congratulations upon the completeness of every feature. When all the guests had arrived the games began; cinque and crokinole ware theumln features and the tables" were filled throughout the entire evening. Some excellent music of an informal nature, was rendered by the young ladies. All are skilful performers and their efforts added much to the pleasure of the occasion.

Their cordial, warm welcome will not soon be forgotten. ' John Kobe?stein and several others found Mike's elder keg; now they wish they hadn't;' The beverage was so sour that it had turned to vinegar and the gentlemen had to admit that the joke was on them. The guests of honoc, Mr. and Mrs. L. A, Grove, were the "lions" of the Evening aqd they greatly appreciate' the reception which was tendered them, . The ladies who arranged the affair havb every reason to be proud of their efforts; there £ ever has been a more distinguished social success iu J he bi6 ' tory of our city. THE SUPERVISORS MEET. Owing to the Hard Times, the Bills Are Larger Than The Whiteside County Board of Supervisors held Its, last session of the present fiscal year in Morrison Monday and Tuesday. The ^business before the body was largely roqtine. Bills were audited and ordered paid. These are for the most part for temporary relief to the poor of the various towns. Owing to the' prevailing hard times, they were larger than usual. The bills from Sterling Township were increased in the same ratio as the others. Our bills for medical attendance," however, were less th.au last 'year. Just prior to the adjournment, the Supervisors passed a resolution thanking A. ' R. Hen- drlcks for his work as Chairman of the Board. This is very much appreciated by Mr Hendrlcks. The past year, he says, has been the most pleasant of his service on' t.he Board of Supervisors.' The affairs of the county are in excellent shape. The new Board will meet April 81. . YOUNG ULRICH IS TRIED. 11 jfttrenta Wl*b Him Sent to a Training - School.

Tbe occasion was one of the most pleasant In the history of the social affairs of the church. The early hours of the evening were devoted to a business session. The Treasurer of 1 the Ladles' Aid Society preeented a report and other business was attended to. Six months or more ago a number of the ladies of the church each took a pledge to earn one dollar, which should be placed In thfe pipe organ fund. At that time It was agreed that an experience meeting and social would be given and each dollar with the story would be placed In the organ fund. Owing to the Inclement weather, not more than one-third of the number of ladles was present, but the reports received were very interesting. Some of the methods of earning money were quite original. Mrs. Wing made a waist;Mrs. W.R. Hinds cleaned, house in hot weather; Mrs. Coe worked in a store; Mr. Matlack hired himself to do clerical work; Mrs. Mack wrote a poem; Mrs. Hill., baked cakes; Mrs, Mafilack starved her husband; Mr. Woodburn dug potatoes; Mrs. Conner's dollar "just growed," and Mrs. Charles Woodburn earned two dollars by baking cakes. There were a number of other reports, but those given above will show the various methods employed in raising money. ' At the conclusion of this feature of the program, refreshments were served and a general good time was enjoyed. The social was a brilliant success, there being J60 or more present. Quite a material sum was added to the organ fund. '..;:_ _~^_: ' " ' ' THE ROARING ROCK. It In n Corker \Vlicii H Gets in One of It '• TantruniH. DlxonSun: A dispatch from Oregon states that the pressure of high water and ice of the last two days there has resulted in the breaking of the dam, taking out one hundred .and twenty feet of the west end. Mr. Jones the owner of the water power has a force of men at work/putting stone around the bulkhead, as it is feared it will go also. Rock river when in its tantrums is at times, as every old resident Knows, very profligate with property and life. On March 20, 1847, it carried away; the north half of the toll bridge that had just been erected here, causing an outlay of 82,000 for repairs. In J une;i851 the river overflowed its banks with two feet of water on the public road around Grand Detour; where on, the eighteenth of that month a stage crossing the flow was preclpalted into ten feet of water,, drowning all the horses. February 14,1857, the river rose to the tops of the bridge-piers iwhich stood below the railroad . bridge, and lifting up the solid ice which had formed around them, carried the entire structure up with it from'its resting places, so that it had to be entirely rebuilt. Ten days later the toil bridge at the f90t 9? CH^WS syenue woe carried away by the high watet and floating Ice. JuneS, 1858, both the wagon bridges at this place suffered. A portion of the free bridge was carried away. In February, 1859, the breaking up of the ice by a heavy freshet carried away tbe Dixon dam and the new toll bridge. Two months later, April 23, two factories and a saw-mill ai the north end of the bridge were undermined by the rushing water from the dam and when the buildings were'slow- ly moving toward the water, which was twenty feet deep, the machinery was removed and they were flred to save the bridge below from the fate of the one that had been swept away so recently. . . '•...' March 7, 1868, the free bridge waa swept away and battered down a pier, of the railroad bridge, precipitating two spans into tHe river. A V BIG RAT HUNT. Great Excitement at the Bee illve Grocery Thursday. There was excitement at the Bee Hive ^grocery Thursday and Will Rohrer is the hero of the hour. For some tlmb'.the clerks have suspected that a gang of rats was holding high carnival in the rear end of the store, but until Thursday, no traces could be seen of them. Now, however, the festive rodents are no more—they were bearded in their den and promptly annihilated. . '•'•''. It happened this way. Will Rohrer was working out in the backroom and f hearing a auspicious scratching over in one corner, began a still hunt for the cause thereof, Sneaking quietly up to a couple of washing machines.he found that a fine den, containing seven large, plump rats, was cosily established there. He immediatoly called the other clerks to his assistance, gent over to Wahl'e for his email do^r, and began the «rueade. For a time there was lively scrambling, but eo*on six of the rodents lay piled iu a heap on the floor. The other is still at large, but it is expected he will eopo be captured.

' • Sorry that many of our beat pupils still have to be out of school because of the measles, "Fatigue is nature's kind warning agalhsf overwork. It is to the watchful teacher what the safety valve is to the engineer. The struggle of the will between duty and inclination is a leading cause of fatigue. Fatigue ought never be allowed to go to the point of exhaustion. Fatigue with proper rest periods recuperates promptly. The rest periods do not interrupt the gain in knowledge and in processes. .Programs should be modified in order to gain rest periods. Mental fatigue, rather than physical, concerns the school.
