REMNiNIS OP DRESS GOODS, SILKS, v EMBROIDERIES, RDCH1NGS, - HOSIERY, , « MM OTHER GOODS TO BE OL.OSKD OUT AT ABOUT HALF PRICE, —Chronological: Today Is the anniversary of the treaty of Paris,—In 1793. —Miss Amy Shaub, of Prophetstown, Is dangerously ill, with cerebro-nplnal- menmgitis. —The Fourth street M. E church has purchased an organ for Its Sunday school service. —There will be a party at Mr. Anson Thummell's to-night. Many Sterling people will be present. —Ice on the river must now be near to thirty inches thick, and it is not possible to find auy anywhere that Is firmer, clearer, cleaner. —Yesterday's thermometer showed thirty degrees below zero; this morn- Ing's ranged from 0 to 12 below. The wind being from a southern quarter and moisture laden, made the cold of this morning wellnl.?h as cold as that of yesterday. —The funeral of the late Nicholas Rael took place this afternoon, beginning at 2 o'clock, in St. Patrick's church, the Rev. C. J. O'Callahan, D..D., officiating. The remains were interred in the Catholic cemetery. Quite a large concourse of friends joined the family in attending upon the obsequies. —Elsewhere will be seen a communication by "Observer" concerning the condition of our streets, and where rests the responsibility for it. Its an- thor is a reflective man of excellent taste and judgment, and its calm and considerate tone with the good sense it displays makes it well worthy of a per- Bual. —The Fourth Avenue and B ulev.nrd whist club me.t last night; there was a large attendance and the evening was spent delightfully. -After card playing, refreshments were served and dancing and singing then followed. The party broke up some time midnight, all bearing home with them pleasing memories of the occasion. —Why don't Governor Oglesby let the people of this district know whether he will or will not order an election for judge. It he purposes putting it off until June, as he has most likely resolved to do, why don't he write to Judge Bailey or some other friend of his In th" district and tell him so; that all may know just'what to expect? —Mr. H. P. Greene, a farmer of Prophetstown, has purchased the Prophetstown Spike and It will be con ducted editorially by his wife. Mr. A. D. Hill will continue in charge for two or three weeks longer. Mr Hill has been identified with the uewspa- per business of this county for eighteen years, and possesses talenta well qualitted to fit him for the country newspaper business, as he can write editorials or locals,—can raise money, to meet bills and fill any position connected with such an enterprise. —Two or three complaints lie on our table, to the effect that private games of poker are running here at Sterling, and that some of the participants are too youthful to indulge inH^at sport, which toW requently leads toNmlsery and despair. One of these articles is exceedingly lengthy, and, we'think, is too personal for our columns. The difficulty about the matter ia that if played in a private room, It would be next to impossible to convict unless some man "squaled" upon himself,— which he Is not likely to do. —The Dixon correspondent of the Chicago Journal telegraphed that paper on Wednesday that the pine Creek affair originated in the brain of a Dlx- on editor. That correspondent is a live, get-up-and-get fellow, who, living within seven miles of a tragedy, which, taking all the circumstances into consideration, ia one of the most horrible that has transpired in this region for twenty years, is so ignorant of the facts as to deny their truth. He had better study up on wood alcohol, and consult a work on moral philosophy In order to learn the heinousnesa of selling a virulent poison as pure alcohol. —Yesterday afternoon about 2 o'clock, two tramps broke Into the residence of Mrs. Isaac Wolf and tooV away some of the outer wearing apparel of her late husband. Mrs. B. C. Church, Sr's., hired girl saw the tramps about the premises and sent a boy for an officer. Just before this Marshal Fitzgerald accompanied six tramps up the track, having ordered them out of town and' going with them to se« that they obeyed. We would warn our readers that tramps are getting numerous and they should not encourage them by giving them any food. Tickle a tramp and a thief laughs, every time. —"What about the upper dam '(" is a question that comes to us about forty seven times a day, thus proving the wide spread Interest in this question. We reply that the committee is engaged in the matter of settling, the overflow business, and have not attempted to raise additional money In the past two or three weeks. It ia not needful that we repeat day by day long appeals for money, as the committee are now adjusting matters with men ownlnf overflow lands. We are informed that they have little or no difficulty in settling. Tusra wore many to be «««n and the committee has had a &?«a sl»al to do in thU dlr*cUoa. — A t"lephone message waa received } Irom Morrison this morning that Miss Clara Kepfer was during, and several •members of the family went over there to-day. Miss Keefer, some three years ago contracted a severe cold and since that time her health has been very poor, Indeed. About a year ago she had a severe attack of typhoid fever, which left her in an enfeebled condition; but she rallied and was apparently on a fair road to recovery, when she was again stricken by disease and for the past fortnight her life has been despaired of. —Brother Morris, of the Kochelle Herald Is mistaken: we never said wo went to the skating rink to gee the boys (or girls, either) skate. We don't know anything about skating; the single lesson we took left more painful recollections than that of Mr. Winkle in his memorable feat, on the pond at Mr. Wardle's. We took but one step; then we saw all the stars of the northern hemispi'ere with the southern cross thrown in. The knot on our head would have tickled a phrenologist half to death as proof that the bump of phi- loprogenitiveness was bigger in us than in any liviug man. That was years ago; we've never seen any skating since,— don't wish to see any; wouldn't go to see the most beautiful ladles in the world engage In that pastime (?) —Dlxon is ablaze with excitement. The unusual phenomenon is presented of people being seen on its streets, and that, too, in large numbers. The attraction is a meeting of candidates for State office 1.1 get acquainted with the farmers of northern Illinois. We beg pardon; a meeting of farmers to hear candidates talk;—no. as the programme puts it, it is a meeting of farmers to talk on farm Blatters. At any rate, the candidates are there and several of them will be heard on farm topics. As most of the candidates don't know whether peas grow on trees or vines, and are in doubt whether a polled An gug belongs to the turkeys or tne goose family, and have often puzzled their brains in effort to determine whether a harvester is a plow or a newly patented wagon, it is not likely that the farmers will gain- much edification from their talk. — The Henry County News publishes a screed to the effect that a Dixon man has a bad taste in the mouth when Sterling is mentioned and that when a Sterling man mentions Dlxon -he Invariably spits in order to clean out .his mouth; also that Dixon and (Sterling editors devote most of their time to abusing one another. Now, Ben. Shaw, do you write Kiner, the editor of 'that News paper and tell him that the affection existing between Sterling and Dixon is close as that which bound David and Jonathan; as that which held Damon and Pythias; that neither is happy except the other is blessed; that Sterling holds a grand celebration whenever Dlxon enjoys some special favor, and that Dixon gets up a grand supper and torchlight procession* whenever Sterling gets up some big enterprise; and that the people of both cities are looking forward confidently to a time when the two cities shall have so enlarged as that they shall be merged into one great metropolis, greater in Its strength than Babylon with Its great walls and hanging gardens, and richer by far than London with Its Tower and Bank of England. Tell him this, Brother, that he may leave off slandering us. —Now, let every one say what he thinks about thu natural gas project; let as many us please say, "We know it will not be struck," if there is any comfort in saying it; but just the same what any one may say will not affect in the slightest the prospect; gas is there, or it is not; and if there, all the talk In the world won't prevent its coming to the surface. As for us, we long ago resolved to tak« a hopeful view of things, and so we say. Look out and listen for the glorious announcement. In any event, It Is highly creditable to the generosity of the stockholders that they should have taken chances and risked their money in an enterprise that is by no means certain. Whether gas is encountered or not, they deserve credit just the same. —Concerning the pork packing business. It Is foolish to object that some people have tried it and failed. On the same principle, one might object to carrying on any kind of business; for there is no business upon the earth that does not show failures. At Chicago several men have grown fabulously wealthy at pork packing. A man can certainly do better here than there. It demands no expensive machinery, and if one engaging in it here were to make a run to superior goods.he would stand still better chance of making money. For years and years Southern states shipped wheat to Baltimore and bought their flour there forborne consumption and kept themselves impoverished. The true policy to pursue by any people Is to prepare what is grown in their region for the market; wheat and ry_e and oats should be ground; corn shoufd be turned into glucose or starch; flax into linen or thread; hogs should be packed. This last Is a need. Our section grows large numbers of this animal, and~to ship them to Chicago and lose the great profits that would come of packing Is to be guilty of improvidence. .

"I was driving along quietly out on the edge of town just now, and a wol- loppingbig fellow came slashing along In a sleigh and blamed if he didn't run right Into me, smashing one of my runners and causing my horse to shy off and dump me Into the suow. I picked myself up, and began to tell him thas I was clear over to the right and that be was to blame and that he should pay fof damaging my cutter, when he ordered me to shut up at once. I don't weigh but 120 pounds and he weighs, I am certain two and a half times that.' •Where are your bellsV asked he. 'But you haven't any either,' said I. 'Never mind that' said he, with a sneer. 'You are damaged and I am not; It's you that are asking for damages. If you'd bad on bells maybe I'd a turned out of the way.' 'But,' said I, meekly, because he did glower at me, savagely, 'I was on my side.' 'Blame take your side; why don't you have bells on your cutter? I forgot them,' I answered. 'All right.' said he, touching up his horse and starting on, 'folks that will not have bells on their rigs mustn't find fault if they're run into. I aint run Into, so I'm- not growling.' And there he was gone sure enough. Now, I want to know if that's so; can't I make him pay for my damaged cutter." We suggested we thought he could, but that we were not posted in the law's Intricacies. "Well I ain't mad," he repeated,—"I ain't mad, but I ought to be. He was a big man,—bigger than me,—if he hadn't been I should have ot mad and tbf-n I'd have licked him. Jig fellows have advantage over little nes. He'd have licked me if it had >eeu me thut had run into bis sleigh, say,'taint fair. Why coundn't I be big, too. I'd have liked to have got mad, so I could have licked him. But ou see I couldn't lick him, sol couldn't ;et mad. It would have eased up my eelingd, I know it would— eased them awful, If I only could; but I couldn't." And for several minutes he kept repeating over and over again that be should have got mad, if it had done any good, and that he ought to have got mad, et4? We Qnally suggested that he might hire some big fellow to get mad for him and that that fellow could do his fighting for him. This suggestion struck him very favorably, and he went oH declaring he'd try and dud such rnln and If his price waaa't to high. be'< furnish as an Item MJor« Uw paper Grand masquerade ball given by the Sterling Cornet band In Mannerchor hall February 10th, 1838.
