S, of ;he First Baptist church are maturing reparations for a Washington's Birthday entertainment. —The Baillie, in tho "Chimes" meeta with many misfortunes and to cap the ilimax loses hia bride. Frank Tum- )leson takes the part. —A surprise party was made up on Mr. and Mrs. Reuben Reed. -The callers took refreshments with them. The evening was spent very pleasantly, indeed. —The Michael Fleming case comes up after the Austin-Westphal case is over. The police officers and Justice Alexander, witnesses, went to Morrison this afternoon. —Mr. John B. Hughes was thrown 'rom his cutter Saturday afternoon, his lorse having run away and got beyond his control. He was not hurt to any extent; the cutter was badly smashed. —An incipient fire at the coftln fac- ory was put out by the fireman.yes- -erday morning. The wood of a window took lire from ashes thrown hrough it. • It did but little damage. —Sunday services at the various ihurches yesterday brought out good- ized congregations, the delightful weather preventing any save the sick rom offering excuse for remaining ndoors. —Mr. John liichardaon died at his esidence in this city at 2 o'clock this afternoon, after a lingering illness, which he bore with fortitude! lie was aged 75 years and leaves a wife and fi ve :hlldren. —The mother of Mrs. James Dun- Ion fell Sunday morning upon ice in ront of Mr. Dundou's residence and broke her right arm /both bones) near he wrist. Dr. J. P. Anthony set the broken member. -The frost of this morning was peculiar; not "flakey,", or "needled," or of ordinary crystal formation, but line and inoalpable,—looking somewhat as a sprinkling of very fine flour upon pavement and sidewalk and fence and oof. • ^Hockford has had lots of devilment going on within its limits in the past ear or two, and now it proposes hav- ng Sam Jones go there and "wrastle" with its issues. Sam may "fetch "em," iut he has about as tough a job before lim as he has ever yet encountered. —The type made us say the case of Austin vs. Westphal was one of Bohe- ian oats, when it should have said It was one of alleged selling of liquor ,to n inebriate. The Round Grove mas- £r's sale was confounded with the one hat was on trial In the circuit court. —The change In the weather from old to pleasant caused some' melting f snow yesterday and to-day, but there as as yet been no interference with he sleighing, which is yet excellent,- Ithough of course.two or three days of uch weather would cause a breakup. —A young Mr. Ellsworth, insane, ivlng seven miles from Prophetstown, walked that distance the coldest night aat week, barefooted and with only his underclothing on.

Speeches were made by Miss Mills of U<ickford, Mr. Harry Hosteller, W. F. Eastmau ,nd others of this city. This meeting s held every Sabbath afternoon in the 'hristian Association" Room at S o'clock. , —"How about the street railroad project?" writer a subscriber. Our answer la, that agreeably to request made .by friends of the upper dam movement, we have refrained from urging any public measure which might seem to distract or divide public nterest and endeavor. The street railroad will come in due time. —The attendance upon the Farmers Congress at Dixon on Saturday was not very large—not enough to till the opera house. If It had been held here, a room five or six times as large as the opera house at Dixon could have been tilled with the crowd from our streets, and then the number would hardly have been missed. In all earnestness, there were more people In Sterling on Saturday than there has been in any single day since the Saturday before Christmas, trade was unusually good on that day. —A son of Andrew Kirwin, living 9 miles west of Harmon, came into Sterling yesterday afternoon looking for an officer. Hia story was that the hired man of his father, named Grant Weinburner, 17 or 18 years old, who came to his house five or six weeks, ago and hired by his father, did yesterday while the family was at church, disap pear from that aection, first taking with him a single barrel gun and gome money—amount not known. Marsha FlUgeriUd of this city and Marshal Brewer of Rook Falls, made thorough 6**rch ol Sterling and Hock Full* fo lfc# young man, but without wall. i —Tiie Dixon Telegraph saya that "Master Tyler Brierton found a grain of oata on hin pillow ye?terday (Friday) morning when he awoke. He thinks it was forced into hii ear three years ago." If that grain had b>en in some ears we wot of, it would have sprouted and matured and seeded for another crop lu much Is-sa than that time. —An editor can not be ubiquitous, nor can he claim oomlacience We are always glad to chronicle good luck chancing to any individual, or the advent of any enterprise promising bene- 1t to the community; but moat of these we cannot find out except we learn from the parties most directly concerned. We would repeat; will not friends slmlly post us in all such cases. —An exchange |ays: "AlH,crlminals dread the newspaper." And it might :iave added that all would be criminals and all committers of minor offenses. Why, there is not a daily paper probab- y in the country but has some one man connected with it that must give more or less time each day te men who save transgressed law or decency and who seek to show palliation thereof, in order that they rcay escape exposure. Welinigh any editor of a daily saper who has had ten years exper- ence could fill books of experiences with this class given. And what is 'unny is, that they are In no wise conscious of the power of the press to show them up, until they have done ;hat which' Invites the attention of .he editor to their cases. Then he becomes an important person in their sight and they become wonderfully 'ertile in excuses, "being ready to show ault does not rest with them at all, but with somebody else. It is fortunate for this class of folks that editors are merciful and in no wise anxious to make trouble, and that they understand the fraillies of humanity. It is n editors' everyday experience that men come up to them to ask the favor of "being let up on" this or that.mis- lemearor, offense, or crime, who have >eon particularly abusive of the very iditors whose clemency they crave. • —At eight o'clock last night Clara lachej, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. 1. Keefer departed this life, at tha lome of her parents, Morrison, this couuty, after a painful and protracted llness. She was born in Hopkins ownahip, June 13,1808, and was, consequently, in the 20th year of her age. Of the deceased it may be truly said ,hat none knew her but to love her; for ihe possessed in high degree the quali- -ies of modesty, purity and gentleness. A.n obedient and affectionate child, warm-hearted and generous, her death s a terrible blow to her parents, to whom is ever present the measure of heir irreparable loss. The eldest born she was always a pattern and example and a guide to her sister and brother, as she was a companion to her mother and an object of greatest affection to ler father. For several years past she lad had a lung difficulty, and last year the had a protracted siege of typhoid 'ever. Although she recovered some, what, yet it was feared that it was not possible for her long to survive. She sore her sufferings with a submission hat could come only of resignation to hu Divine will. Conscious that her nd was near,, she was prepared to de- iart, being an earnest Christian,—a member of the Presbyterian church. Gone in her youth and purity; the re- ord of her short life is an example to ,11 who knew her. Gentle, lady-like, reined, sw.eet-dlsposltioned, modest, unassuming, pure and good; in fact hers was a combination of virtues that but erve to make heavier the blow of her ,eath. —In England and Scotland and also n the Southern States of the United States it is a common impression that ilrds mate on St Valentine's day; and, ndeed, while birds do not have a par- icular day of the year in which to mate, at about this season, in the south, ne fond of rambles in field and grove- may observe those contests of song, or hysical strength which precede mat- ng. Because of the popular Impression •eferred to, there grew up a custom, now coextensive with the bounds of 2b.rlstendom.for young people to send ove missives to one another- on that day. At first written In words of tender passion, trade afterwards stepped n and provided valentines made to land. In the larger might observe to-day some of the most exquisitely beautiful and costly valen- .inea; while In the smaller ones may be seen those' 1 that are elegant and moderately expensive. The talent of great artists has been called into requisition to sketch symbolic pictures, while the greatest of poets have thought it no dishonor to exercise their rifts in writing fitting words to je used by a love-sick swain to Communicate' his feelings to ;he object of his affection With this harmless and poetic custom lias grown up one that is not so commendable, viz., the socalled comic valentine. We say socalled, because there is nothing comic in sending an anonymous enclosure to a person, depleting some imagluery or real physical or mental weakness. There is no fun in bestowing pain; and no man or woman is so inured to attack as to receive without indignation a covert at tack of this kind. That these "comic" valentines demand a certain order ol talent to get them up—both in the picture and "poetry" caricatures, is true; but they are not funny to the man or woman who receives them. Our post office here ia making a good ready for a big day's work on toinorrovfi-St Valentine's day. Oue of the carriers laughingly told us this morning thai everywhere he had been, almost, the young-people told him they'had BO many and so many to send out.
