THE EVENING GAZETTE: FRIDAY, FEBEUABT 0 1838. Evening Gazette. T K K rh . JO «•.*«. I ORMVKf'.SD H H : Per Vcsr. ? OARRIEB. FRIDAY. FF.B. 10. WE IIAVK always Insisted and now iadst, that tbera are great and vast cpportunitles here at Sterling outside of what is promised by manufacturers. For Instance: 1, see how many thous- ;uid8 and thousands dollars worth of cgga and chickens could be bought up here, the same being held to the Deal market. 3. A horse market would af- lord employment to a number of men and bring riches to several. :i. We could have a butter market as at Elgin and Uttca and other points. 4. Our merchants by combining in buying could build up a widespread reputation for Sterling as a retail trade town. .-,. We have spoken of a pork packing house. 6. So tomatoes, corn and pickles might be packed and made here indiflnitely. Now these six aug- t'eitlons carried out would In four years more than double onr population und add more than double to wealth iind general prosperity. "CAN IT be that 1 am twenly V" asks the youth of that age. And so it goes until the old man of ninety wonders if lie has reached that point. And, again: Whqn one is thirty he thinks of the possibilities of liring until seventy, while the man of seventy calculates his chances on living twenty years longer. But, toughest of all things is to realize that one can look back so far over intervening time and realize tlut so many years have passed. It was but a few days ago that we heard a child of nine say, "O, that waa a long time ago; why, I was but six years old when that happened. It was an age." So on the same day we heard a man of sixty say: "I declare it «eems but yesterday when I cast my first vote for President,-!! was in 1882." In regarding the past, we do not measure the intervening time, but our minds run back to an occimence which freshened by the recall, in vividness seems as though it had but just happened. And still, nevertheless, this is true: how long soever our sojourn, It will seem but all too Bhort when we are called upon to cross the old mystical river which all us have gone over, iind make ac'qtiaintance with old Charon; and although we reach to an hun-_ dred and upwards, we will say as the lllms gather and the spirit gets ready for its leap, "All too shortlall too short the apace between the ( birth and the death." '_ JEFF DAVIS took charge of his southern confederacy twenty-seven years . ago. Well do we recall (and it seems but yesterday) the huzza that went up from thousands of throats of men and women met to receive the tidings; and well, too, do we remember that those of us who didn't Incline to Jefferson und his cause, were careful not to express our views tou.boldly at that juncture. Jefferson thought, and and these people thought, the north would not go to war with them, but that it would be u peaceable secession. He found out his mistake. The smth. collapsed, but Jefferson is as bold and as out spoken and as firm believer in a confedercy and state rights as on that proud day when he became head of the secession cause, a place he got, not, because of the preference of the south for him. but because Howell, Cobb and Bob Toombs would neither le* the- other have it. Davis is serene now and happy In the admiration and affection of the southern people. • His ambition is to retain that affection; he knows his cause is gone and that there is no office that he ean hold,—perhaps he wishes none. To one living at the South an loyal to the government,-7-shut off frond-newspapers and from ctramunion with "the north, - and.seeing the enthusiasm and hearing the boosts of the Southrons, it was "blue" times indeed, about him. Jefferson and his people expected, in the event of war, that England and Frauce, if not the other European powers would.come to their assistance. It is all over now, and every patriot heart rejoices that the matter is settled forever, and that our great country is united and free and prosperous and happy. These States divided in sovereignties, there would have been perpetual differences between them and standing armies would have kept them all poor. Most of the Southerners see this now, and are not sorry that the confederacy oflDavia expired at Appomattox. ted that it was not permitted him to realize the picture, ai we have seen. it,—the real, living picture of a jolly sleigh ride,—a crowd of young people* nestled down in the body of a big wagon on runners, com fortably covered with robes and blankets, the air clear and cold, yet bracing, the snow smooth, the stars peeping down upon them, two or four horses pulli-ig them along, their voices raised in noisy clatter, or pitched to some familiar song. Could he but have seen this, as all of us have seen it, how much brighter would have been his winter talcs. The very poetry of motion is reached in a sleigh riae; no jar, no unseemly noise. Sound there Is, but it is that of bells of different tones, which 'twere misnomer to call jingle; rather is it musical and rhymthical. Sound there is, but 'tis of happy voices. Without effort the runners glide along over the path of crushed crystals, even the horses hoofs come down noiseless, musical bells and musical voices blended, until they sound out on air communicating gladness to those who hear and see. Churlish is that fel'.ow who ran see and hear without himself being made glad that creatures are passing by, w'ho for the time have forgotten all life cures and sorrows, but invigorated, cheered and strengthened of the easy motion, the sound of bells and the bracing air, are happy,—full as happy as 'tis ever privileged mortals to be happy in this world of change and of too frequent trouble. Live the pastime! May each winter bring us snow and sleighing, for sleighing brings the young together, and their communion brings joy and gladness and-lengthens life. - • A year ago and just a jtar ago, too, bep in that extraordinary gorge which coti'/erted.Como bottoms into a gre;it lalt", and which stopped our factory wh els, and which made such an Arctic -cene of our river. - There is a law requiring children to i-.o to s hool so many months each yen'-. There are some instances in which,this law is evaded. Whose duty is it to see to this matter? Such query hat. been made of us two or three times of 1 ite. - "No man knows what a aay may bri;ig forth" yet a man met us this morning and offered to wager us a new hat that the sleighing would break up by the 2, r )th Instant. His reasons for his foreknowledge he offered us for pul illcation; but as it was all hlerogly ph to us, and would use up about three of the columns oi this paper, and as we don't believe in weather-foreknowledge any way, we declined the article and the bet. --Three nights ago a man went home awfully drunk and after beating his wife threw her outdoors and locked her out in the 15-degree below zero air. A neighbor took her in for the night. The following pight she returned, but he wodld not let her in, and again she had to sleep at a neighbor's. And yet sl.e will not have the brute of a fellow arrested. Were this paper to give names of the parties, the chances are the wife would decline to make good our statement. bellsl Don't you hear dem bells V" ringing out amid the bustle and noise of the day, sounding in the silence of the star-lit night. What a host of memories they awaken, and bow many hearts there are which beat close behind thejp. Black always suggests mourning; red, gayety; many colored flowers, pleasure; white flowers, punty aud death; while sleighing always suggests fun, rollicking fun. Old St. Nicholas, patron saint of children, is always pictured with his rotund form and jolly face within a reindeer sled; aud so, while the sled and sleigh are. used for all purposes that wagons and buggies and carriages are used, nevertheless, no winter picture of fun and enjoyment would be complete, to the mind of the northern Illi^ nols inhabitant, except there was a big sleigh with a bevy of laughing, rollick- in; boys and girls, or men and women. Charles Dickens, the finest word-painter and the most perfect-ttumor-pathos writer of any age, haloed winter with pleasure aud happiness: yet, because bis country did not enjoy the presence of snow la quantity sufficient to call oat sleighs, bis grand and glorious atorle* of Christmas are marted by absence of *lt?lgb*bell and sleigh; and ti-ne «nd tJtn# *f*io, sinee our life ID «iow-gtrt lUiaoU began and we have —Mrs. Charles Cochran is considerably better. —The railroads still keep exceedingly busy—freights heavy, and the rolling stock all brought into requisition. —William Hoffman, of Gait, was badly kicked Tuesday over the left eye by a young horse which he was hold- Ing while the blacksmith was shoeing it. —A Bohemian oats case (test) Is before the circuit court today. As it is pending, the GAZETTE refrains from commenting upon it, but may have something to say when it is over. —A man living not far from Sterling ate on a wager, a day or two ago, 12 dozen oysters (stewed) and four pounds of crackers at a single fitting, and then offered to eat four dozen oysters more, if they were paid for. —We never did hear of so many sleighing parties, as during the past six weeks. Not .even the Laplanders can hold this pastime in greater esteem; everybody, except editors, and some of theTn, for all that we know, engages in it. —Boring began in Rock Falls this morning for natural gas. Delays were caused by difficulty in getting pipe, which now has arrived, and it is expected that the work will be.prosecuted to the end without further interruption. —Let our farmers know they. can bring horses to Sterling any day in the year and sell them to honorable men at n fair value, as they now can sell hogs and corn, and an impetus would at once be given, to horse raising. Many ha^e objected to following it because the animal is usually three to five years old before it is really marketable and because then there must be found the right man and a considerable amount of dickering and oftentimes a note be taken for the animal, in order to make the sale. Horse raising is far more profitable than anything else in this locality, and a horse market would add greatly to the wealth of our region. There is no question about it; it would make rich any company of men who might engage in it, provided they un- derstoo I thelt business and managed it honorably and judiciously. —The Phantom party in G. A. B. Hall last night was participated in by about twenty-five couples, and the entire evening was one of greatest enjoyment. All present wore ' white and masks of the same color. It was a leap- year party and after the ladles and gentlemen had marched in from their respective dressing rooms, the ladies selected partners aud the dancing began. There was suggestion of the old Egyptian banquet about the affair— the cerements of the dead, yet gay hearts beat beneath the pure white robes and not a thought of sadness prevaded the room. Refreshments were served during the evening. The success of the party, and It was a great success, was due to the excellent taste of the committee of' arrangements, Clironlo Tea Poisoning. Dr. William N. Bnllard, of Boston, read an article on the subject at n Into meeting Of the Massachusetts Medical society, which the society recommended for publication. • c A. year nnd a half aco the author published n paper, giving the results of somewhat extended investigations on tho subject. These were that the poison Is not readily eliminated, but accumulates In the system; that its prominent effect is on the young and those who nre in a depressed physical condition; that the average amount of Oolong and Souchong teas (medium grades) needed to produce Injurious sj-mptoms Is a little less than flve cups a day, and that the most common symptoms are loss of appetite, dyspepsia, palpitation, headache, vomiting and nausea, combined with various forms of functional nervous affections, hysterical and neuralgic. These results have been confirmed by further Investigations — mostly among women who are accustomed to drink a considerable amount of tea daily, without taking adequate food, and when In an exhausted condition. ' Tho vigorous and well nourished and those actively engaged in the open nlr are not often similarly affected. Tho nervous disturbance, duo to chronic tea poisoning, Is of a peculiar character. Says Dr. Billiard: "The normal condition of t'ie nervous system is disturbed and replaced by a condition of hyper-ejEcitabil- ity, or of less stable equilibrium. This la shown by their want of calmness, their general restlessness and Irritability, and tho desire to bo constantly moving, while, at the same time, there IB a subjective sensation of a loss of self control, and of Inability to act slowly. Such persons are subject to exaggerated efforts from ordinary Impressions; th((f>are startled, jump at unexpected noises or sensations, or, In other words, react too freely'to slight external Influences."—Youth's Companion.

The writer says she is nlnete n and pretty, (the last, of course), that she has registered a vow not to marry unless she finds a man who has never smoked or chewed, or sworn, or lied, or cheated; that a >oung lady acquaintance of hers made her life miserable by having to smell tobacco smoke when' her husband was present, and that another lady f riemt married a man to reform him, and that he licked her before the honeymoon was over. She asks us if we know lucb a perfect creature as she would have for a husband, and as earnest of good faith, gives her name and asks us to refer such to her. Not being acquainted with BO angelic a single man, we give publicity to the matter and request that the name* of such men be sent in to u* and we will forward them to her. She adds that the .gentleman must not be worth less than Incldpiits In a Dentist's Office. Several years before tho introduction of nitrous oxUIo gns all kinds of experiments were tried to devise some method to extract teeth without pnln. One plan was the galvanic buttery,, or "lightning method,"a copper wire being connected from the battery to the forceps, which conveyed a ehock to the tooth, and was supposed to prevent pain during the operation. Our first patient, a robust, healthy man, whose teeth, were "put in to stay," wanted a large molar extracted. The attachment was made as usual, bnt the connecting wire proved to be too short, and parted Jnst as tho forceps grasped the tooth, of course disconnecting the battery entirely. The tooth came out after quite a Btrupgle. Our patient instantly left the chair and, with a smile on his face, declared It to be the greatest Invention of the age, saying he hod not suffered the slightest pain. In this case, at least, mind conquered matter. On one occasion, after drawing a tooth for a suffering, nervous patient, and, naming the price, he said: "Well, I hope your charges are high enough; Dr. the other day drew me all around the room and only charged-me n quarter." Quite recently a lady from a neighboring town brought^rr a set of teeth on a gold plate whicli/Hhe wanted to sell, saying, with a sigh,: "So long as my dear husband lived they were of tho greatest possible benefit to him; bnt, poor man, I buried him last week: he'll- have no more use for them, and I thought I could spend the money Just now to good advantage." A young lady with a beautiful set of natural teeth, perfectly sound, insisted that large cavities should be drilled In each front tooth, in order, she sold, "to show all tho gold possible." She was quite indignant at our refusal to accede to such an insane request.—Hartford Times. . Facts About Fleas. Fleas love dirt, and In it they flourish and multiply most abundantly. But in spite of St. Dominic's curse und their unclean haunts, they are interesting little fellows. Let us put one under the microscope.
