"BOOKS THAT,4iave helped me," ia thetrtl*«l.a.«w t noa o£ articles that are being published in a most worthy mag- a2lne, and written by men of prominence in letters, the ministry and politics, - Tliefirir-60liretmng-~pijzzling-in Buch a theme. Stan's education comes on the piecemeal order, he-re a, little and there a little. Here he gathers mental pabulum from a book, there from a newspaper: here from observation and travel, there fioJn cunrersatiou with learned men. How, then, is it possible for one to single out from nil the books he has read those that have afforded him most assistance '( It is possible, of course, that one may look buck through the long years and name this author and that who fed him with most wholesome food, that nourished him beyond any other; but to our mind that were about as dilncult as dBtermi- nlng what physical food made bone and flesh there; as diflicult as to declare what cookery gave strength to this limb and comeliness to the general form. True, each man has his favorite authors, and he is able to indicate certain sentiments copied and certain impressions received from this or that one; but we cannot understand at all, how ons who has read much can say that a given fifteen or twenty or thirty authors were to him more than all the rest Children of .thirty to forty years ago read Bunyan and Young and Josephus, and Judson, and Bascom, and Arabian Nights and Bill's History of the World, and Bailey's Festus, and Robinson's History, and Children of the Abbey, and Scott'a Novels, and Froiasart's Chronicles, and Shakspero, and Pope, (including the Spectator) and Dryden, and Swift, and Goldsmith, and other writers before their twelfth year; for in those days the world was not Hooded with children's story books how, then, can the writers of "books that have helped me," wander back to Impressionable early childhood, when every hour was iustinct with charact formations and say, "my life at thiit time was marked by development of character caused by this or that book They may say, "I read then so-and-so;' or, "My favorites were so-and-so;" but —iHadifflculHudeed-to-deelitre-thiU-ob- ligation rests most with such and such an author or authors? Still, because one cannot do u thing himself, it is scarcely proper to say no other mun can do it. It is only .that it appears BO strange that we note it. : THE DKEAM of Washihgton, Jcller son, Franklin, the Adamses and othe worthies of the Revolution was that o a Republic whose citizens should bi equally tree and intelligent and gener , ous and philanthropise, and patriotic all qualified to (ill any ofllce in th land and all BO unselfish as that they would be glad either to serve the! country in places of trust, or yield them to others. Little did they sup pose that a time would come when th uiany offices with their emoluments would develop a profession.—a class o men whose lives were devoted to se curing and holding places under gov ernment. Perhaps had they been abl to don the mantles of prophecy am have seen by prevision the dawn o that day when thu hero of Orleans .de- 'clared in hia heroic tones, "To the vie tor belongs the spoils" with the afte spread of the sentiment, until each community could show, as now, a • number of men greater or less, who become soured and glum because the; have not received that recognition they imagine their talents call for. and who daily cast aside their newspapers because they do not contain notices in their favor for this or that- blUce, and who are ready to do all, dare all, def; all, in order to win the prize of the! desires, it is just possible that thei faith in the Republic had not been so strong, and their pictures of its glories not bren so vivid. Could all but se behind the scenes just now and view as it is,—this one struggling to win that place,—and that fightlug to win this; how this one bemeans him self, making promises he can not keep begging,, beseeching, itn •plorlng assistance, as even would dls gust tramps, he would tind bimsel asking "IIus the glory departed from Israel?" Is true manhood departing from earth V Father, teach your boy early, that no greater curse can one en tall npon himself than to cultivate am bltion for political preferment; it em bitters life and is just A3 certain to fai of gratification as that ha lives to ex. perience it The chances in the politi ' cal lottery are less .than in one wit! one big prize uud forty thousam blanks. Nor is one fairly in office be fore be begins to dread dismissal, if i is appointive, or defeat at next election If elective. We have never been proud of the place we have won in this world and fully realize that if. we passed on of it, our demise would not cause any derangement of plans outside our own household where our faults are charita bly overlooked and our virtues are magnified by affection, but we do con gratulate ourself that never, no never not even hardly ever have we for a sin. gle moment desired, wished, expected looked for, hoped,{wanted or expected ui office; and proud, too, are we thai never has there been a moment wbeo we would have taken, received, ac cepted or held soy office from that of school director to that of President 01 these United States. Early in life we were thrown into contact with those who bald office, and we taw their *or row, trouble, diatteu and often agooy ft&d it w«n a lewou that wo-bava proat ed by. Better a lowly home with tbort rattous of meat and occasional lower ing of til* flour sack in a situation th* »aou$te to fce*p the wolf lion away from thn door than an office whose tenure is uncertain, and which a desired by forty or fifty others, every m> of whom ia ready to mount mid own you, and every one of whom rcras it his duty, as it is His pleasure o slander you in season and out of eason. Some day. may be, the rtraam )f the fathers will be fulfilled and the ilTice will seek the man, rather than he man seek the office; but that d;iy now seems a long way off. Where the easn is 1 _there_wlilL_bn__tii.e_yu]turps, ind since a popular delusion it is that Ulce holding has no carea and no duties and lots of profit and honor, so It is hat office will be regarded as the easi- ;st, surest and beat way to make » 11 v- ng. And yet no better earnest of the allacy of such a notion is alTorded ban in the fact that ofilce holders do not amass filthy lucre. aiK'f>3 in dress and travel.

The increasing number of jocks and the increase, also, in the number of visitors necessitated the en- argement. The number of books ;aken out In January 1888 was IsSI; in January 1887 there were but ittfta. Number of visitors January 18SM was 2133. A list of new books purchased will be published soon. —Yesterday was Miss Carrie Brewer's birthday, and her mother, father and sister succeeded in keeping her in complete Ignorance of the coming of :ier classmates and other friends, to the number of a half-hundred, who had been cautiously invited to be there last evening. The young people gathered at Alderman Brewer's and remained until near the midnight hour. Miss Carrie's complete and bewildering surprise by no means preventing her from entering with spirit into the joy of the occasion. Elegant refreshments were served the guests. Those present will long remember the pleasant occasion. —A masquerade hall is one in which ample opportunity is afforded one to be lively as a cricket and gay as a lark; for his mask makes him or her as unknowable as an anonymous correspondent in a newspaper. Masking is popular the -world over for this reason, even among savage people, as well as the most civilized. At Rome during the carnival season and" at New Orleans and Memphis during Mardi-Gras onesees them everywhere. Maskec balls are fashionable in all civilized countries. Last night in ilaennprchor Hall, the Sterling Cornet Band gave one of these balls, and there was infinite jollity and fun and g'-od humor One of the managers assures us thai all went merry as a marriage bell; that things were decorous, and that all who went had a splendid time. —Justice Alexander sold this morn ing at master's sale, by decree of court the rarm of Charles Fellows, of Round Grove, for 82,805.50. Mr. Fellows los his farm in consequence of a Bohemi an oats deal. A write-up of the losses and mental suffering entailed by those Bohemian oats deals would contain long chapter indeed; aud the trouble is that it has brought trouble not only to strong men, but also to- ; women anc children, as well. We know nothing 01 Mr. Fellows' case beyond the bare statement that his loss came of a dea in these oats, but we have heard 01 cases where men were broken up root and branch. Had not the GAZETTE got hold of tne matter and published it promptly as soon as it did, there would have been many sufferers at this end of the county. —That Pine Creek affair ought to be investigated. A virulent poison (tneth yllc or wood alcohol) was sold for spirits of wine, or alcohol, and death resulted. Besides the single death every man who drank of. it sufferec from the effects of poison. The Bixou Telegraph' of yesterday published statement made by one Mr, Funk, who was present and who was first reported to be killed by the wood alcohol. He sayi the onlj reason he was no killed was because he did not drink any of it: that it smelled like benzine aud a single smell was all he could stand. The stuff does smell some thing like benzine, sure enough,—only worse. Mr. Funk says that every witness before the coroners' jury testified that the effects were as stated, and he is very indignant that the autboritlu should be seeking to hush up the mat ter. The Telegraph and the GAZETTE are Insisting and will .continue to in slat that tl.e guilty parties be brough to punishment. Business men of Ogl< county ought to combine and enforci prosecution, i These Chicago pedlars are selling inferior goods in competi tioh with their honest goods, and now they have a good case against them they ought to make them sweat for it If the Chicago sellers of that vile poi son be innocent, why is it they, do not go for those who are demanding their punishment. — Then was Jesus led Up of the spirit into the wilderness where .he fasted forty days and nights. From this event in the life of the Christ comes the practice in many churches of observing lent. This last word conies from an Anglo Saxon wore meaning to lengthen, because the days lengthen at this season. It begins on Ash Wednesday (next Wednesday) and continues until Easter Sunday. In the Catholic and Episcopal .churches, there is not only church observances, bul fasting is also observed in imitation of the example of the Christ; it's mern- oers are also enjoined to abstain from festivals, parties, balls, theater, and opera-going. Whatever may be said of the religious feature of thia world-wide observance, coming as it does at the close of winter amusement* and in which too many society people suffer in con*equenc« of dissipation!, none can deny lU hygienic benetit*.

The owners of the merry voices and the occupants of the sleighs hailed "rom Sterling. It was a leap-year par- tp and on the road and at Mr. Myers' and on the return, there was keenest pleasure, and the members of the party lave mind and memory full of the delightful episode of last evening. —Two or tliree of the Baptists !iave requested us to correct a statement In our obituary notice of the late Deacon Whitman, to the ellect that lie was one of the founders of tho Baptist church here; that he did not reach Sterling until four or live years after the church was founded. In the absence of information from the family, we relied upon what others said; in any event, he was an ardent, zealous, devoted, earnest member of his church from the time he came until his death. —Superintendent of Streets, Lightcap, was in'our olllce to-day aud says that it Is erroneeus to suppose that the streets and alleys are in a bad'coudi- tion, but some parties have been guilty of throwing ashes on the streets and In the alto)B; thjs is violation, of ordinance, whether thrown in' a heap or scattered. The ordinance, he says, will be rigorously enforced: that he bas-received instructions from the commit telTouTitreBts audTilleys so to do; The committee has instructed Mr. Lightcap to remove all garbage and ashes wheo-they are placed in convenient receptacles and accessible. There has been leniency shown towards those who have offended, but Mr. Lightcap says he must and will enforce the ordinance and that all will please regard this as definite and final. He does not wish to prosecute anybody, but his duty is im- 'perutive and he must insist upon all complying with what is conducive to the health of the people and the attractiveness of our highways. —We make following note of the farmers institute at Dixon. Most of the sessions have been such as would be expected at a farmers meeting and some of the papers were able and practical, notably that of E. C. Lewis on roads and road-making; but Friday afternoon wasmajnly devoted to politics. L. D. Whiting formerly a Repub licau but since his failure to secure a reelection to the State senate an independent, gave a paper charging all the evils of the farmer to a low tariff, to which Dr. Loomis of the Amboy Journal made an able reply. The meetings were held in the Dixou cold storage rooms, known as the Opera house. By taking turns'of Bitting at the register a part of the audience kept almost warm. Arrangements were made to hold the Institute at Sterling next year Air. E. .B. Warner of Morrison was appointed on the district committee from this county.

He has sent another son of his to Dakota to search for him. 1 Work on the gas well will be prosecuted day and night. Regular steady work was first got at at 8 oclock last evening, and from that hour until 10 o'clock this morning the drill had penetrated thirteen feet, of clay and rubble.

But it is now ascertained from the difference of soil, ulilch is not at all adapted for building material, and the mode of construction, that they are of Christian origin and were Intended from the beginning for burial places. Another error, that they were places of refuge from heathen persecution, has likewise been abandoned.
