Mr. Scott, of Nebraska, delivered a lecture to a moderate sized audience In Fourth street M. K. church last night, in the interest of the Good Templars. Thirty-six names were secured and they petitioned for a charter, with the following officers: John Hnrpham, P W. C. T., J. PX)verholser, W. E. T., Miss Chloe Hill, W. V. —A story is around town that two men were standing day before yesterday on the Q. track, opposite Mr. Sanborn's farm, when a snow plow came along and picked them .both up and threw them into the field, and that one of them subsequently died at Morrison. Diligent enquiry failed to give any confirmation of the story. —Last night a surprise party 'was made on the Misses May and Emma Suavely, living two miles north of Sterling, in honor of Miss Sallle Dodendorf, who soon leaves for Nebraska. The visiting company was made up at Sterling, but many neighbors also were present. The Misses Suavely were admirable hostesses and they and Miss Dodendorf made it delightful for all who were there. . . • . —Mr. Isaac Reed, of this city, celebrated his eighty-fifth birthday to-day.

He ordered chicken-pie and oysters for'his birthday dinner and assumed the part of master of cermo- nles at table, with as much ease and grace as a younger man could have done. —Tbe C. B. & Q. will lay steel rails from Amboy to Denrock, beginning work early in the spring. This will require a large force of men whose Headquarters will be at Sterling. What with the large fo ce to be employed by the Northwestern litre and that of the Q, it will mean considerable activity and the paying out of ' considerable sums of motiey for work, greater portion of which will go for board, cloth- Ing and other purposes. —Miss May Land is, 22 years old, daughter of Emanuel Laudla, who resides north of Sterling, died last night of consumption. She had been ill for some time, and her death wus expected. The funeral will take place Sunday morning at 10 o'clock.

From the house they will proceed to the New Mennonite church, where services will begin at 11 o'clock, liev C. C. Herr, of Osborne, Ohio, will offl- ate. ' • .•Last night Mr. Humphrey Anthony and Miss Phoebe Buah were united in the holy bonds of matrimony at the residence of the parents of the bride, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bush, two miles north of Sterling, the Rer. N. H. (J. Fife officiating. Only relatives of the family were present Mr. Anthony la a prominent farmer of Genesee township, and Miss Bnah has been a very successful teacher of thir county, she resigning one of the 'beat country schools of Wbiteslde a few weeks ninoe to make preparations for the wedding. There were many valuable presents given, and an excellent collation was served the guests. The newly marxled pair w\U settle at once on the farm of the giwm la Otonem. Th» QASKTTC —The Sterling Pleasure club bad Its regular danco in Masonic Hall laat night, thirty-five cotiplesbelng present. Professor Back's orchestra furnished the music. These dances are exceedingly popular, and those participating greatly enjoy them. —It is the duty of a newspaper to point out advantages to its people, particularly as its editorial force, by means of its large number of exchanges and Its constant communication with people, and being devoted Jail the time to Undlng of news aad learning of opportunities, become acquainted with facia not posessed by those whose scope of vision Is smaller, or whose duties, cares and responsibilities prevent their discovery of them. What we now invl e attention to is the fact that thousands of hogs are shipped from here annually- to Chicago, and freight Is paid upon their hoofs, hair and Intestines. Remember this fact and then let; usitell you this. There la a little village In Virginia called SmlthUeld. Well, if you go to New York or Philadelphia, or Baltimore, or any other of the many eastern cities, yoa-wlll^lQd • tEar fashionable-hotel^ and restaurants, and people generally, who can afford It, take pride in telling you that they have ( Hmithfleld hams, or Smlthtleld bacon upon their tables. And further enquiry would elicit the fact that said Smitbneld hams and shoulders, sides and middlings, sell from two to five centa more per pound than western products of the hog. It la not Smithfleld, as a fact, but the farmers for a radius of about sixty miles around that put np this bacon. In that region a farmer who would ship live hogs would be regarded as improvident. Now put the two facts together. Those Virginians 303 C! • II • I « M * K f «. Chimes of Normandy. C • II • 1 • SI * K • (*. Valentines Day. 55 cents. AboiU that Coal. As Mrs Knowles did not see any of the GAZETTE folks, nor know that her name or losses were going into the paper, it is not strange that it should get in a little crooked. She simply said, 'she wished she knew who around her is out of coal, then she might 'send them some." She ia willing to divide, for she knows it is hard to be without, but ahe does object to their taking it In the night. To put a stop to misjudging she now wishes to add, the tracks were never made by a woman's foot; the print of a big boot under where they took It out was Just as clear as of the big pails, or tubs, they put it in; several others saw it plainly. It was a big man, too lazy to earn his own; no hard working woman would do such a mean thing. We advise him to get his living honestly. M. B. KNOWLES. The purest Japan tea imported L. P.

Carpenter & and North Carolinians near Smithfleld cure bacon carefully and reap their reward; but they have no such amount as is raised here. Armour and a few others have grown enormously rich packing pork, and packing bacon and lard and butterine. Our hogs instead of being shipped alive from here, ought to be bought up here and killed and packed.^ A man of experience could, within two years, by making a superior and extra quality of hams, shoulders and middling get a, run on these goods that would insure the Lightest possible market price. The same could be predicated of the lard, while the pork would br fng its .fniir market Yftlue.._Iti8 of jio use to discuss the Tact of profit. If Armour could grow famously rich, so a company here can make money. Certain it is, it would start out with the advantage of saving freight, commission and other expenses over Armour at Chicago. Host of this work is by hand. Armour has to pay much higher prices and his expenses are greater proportionately every way than would be expenses here at Sterling. We invite attention to this subject now, but expect to say something further upon 4t, later. —The Supervisor of Pine Creek ridicules the idea that a gill (one fourth of a pint) of wood (methylic) alcohol could have killed Myers. A gentleman of Chicago, and a dealer In the article, informed us yesterday tUat he had known two ounces to kill. It is a villainous compound, heavily charged with fusil oil (a rank poison); formerly it was used is a medicine being given in doses of from ten to twenty drips for consumption, and other diseases, but was abandoned and it is now only used in cutting varnish and for other chemical and manufacturing 'purposes. • How this supervisor determined that Myers drank just one fourth of a pint, we know uot; usually in drinking bouts, men do not stand by to measure ti>e amount drank; but granted be drank that much, it amounts to 1920 drops, nearly one hundred times as much as the ordinary dose once given. We grant a man might be found, one in a thousand, who could drink a gill and not die at once; but even that is questionable. One thing is certain, however; if Myers was a man In delicate health and if he drank that much, the chances are that the wood alcohol he drank kilted him. But the ' chances are that . he drank more than the quantity named. In any event the fact is that a drug^ gist sold the grocery man four gallons of wood alcohol and. marked it just what it was; the grocery man took the mark off. No one at Pine Creek who bought alcohol knowinaly would buy wood alcohol as a beverage because its vile smell and poisonous properties forbid. This grocery man certainly knew the difference between wood and regular alcohol, because the former sells for less than half what the latter does. But these peddling grocers must sell cheap • goods At cheap prices • to get trade. This wood alcohol was offered to these Pine Creek men as alcohol for drinking purposes at a price about one half of what they would have to pay at home' for the genuine article. They bought it supposing It to be the genuine article. There is certainly criminal carelessness somewhere, and it is the duty of the authorities of Ogle county to locate it. No respectable {druggist would sell wood alcohol for alcohol; 1 these Chicago druggists declare they sold this for Just what it was. The men who bought it, bought it for a drinking alcohol, because they went to work drinking it as soon as they' got it. There was gross deception practiced upon them and the miracle is that more of them didn't die, and it is mot improbable that they might have done so bad they not previously been drinking poor whisky containing more or less fusil oil, and they were consequently inocu- loted against it, on. the principle that men have prepared themselves for the reception of poison in large doses by previously taking • small ones and getting the system Inured to it The more that is revealed In tblc case at Pine Crsek, the greater la ghpwn the iMoa of layeatlgatloa aud piuiahment of Ut« guilt? pirUw. lor Hale.
