II. ie>«. THE LESSON of the sges is that enunciated by Charles Darwin when he said, "Life is a battle fur place." What is Ureat Britain but a swallower up of other nations, that little isle set in the sea with her handful of people owning there htis boon frpont ami most intnlH gent discussion, and upon which our people have lixed their judgments beyond any possibility of change. THE AIR ot the mountain lop and of the Arctic land in winter is infinitely rarelied.' Mr. Wilson in his "I>and of Snow" (a journey through the Himalaya Mountains in 1872 and just published in I'.lnctwood's Magazine) called attention to the fact that at an altitude of 14,000 feet with the air at 28 degrees above zero (4 below the free/.ing point) he lay his thermometer down and in a few moments the quicksilver, under , in nearly one half the world? And since Prussia recovered from the attacks of Napoleon what Is its history other than that of a gobbler up of land and principalities. Patriots Lave not yet recovered from the dismemberment of Poland. Russia's march is north and east and her ambition is to seize parts of the Empire of China, If not to absorb that peculiar people altogether. And so little Holland, in imitation of her elders, has Java and Sumatra and other islands of the world. .Our own country has grown 'from 800,000 to 3,000,000 of square miles since the United States have had their being. And these nations are but as private individuals and corporations which absorb and absorb the property of the weaker; and but as the. beasts and birds of prey, which each after their kind extend their territory and live upon their weaker neighbors. These things will be explained and adjusted after awhile, but they are not easy of explanation just now. WITH MOST men music Is an instrument or the human voice pitched in lome key and giving forth strains agreeably to rules of harmony; but the definition is -infinitely broader than that. It is not only cathedral choir with grand organ and the human voice the powerful influence of the punbeam. ran up to 1B2 degrees (the boiling point of water at a slightly higher altitude). •?o explorers in Arctic lands have been terribly blistered in the sun when the thermometer should be in a below zero condition. The extreme difficulty of breathing at great altitudes (it is Mr. Wilson's opinion that one cannot live at an altitude greater than 18,000 feet, or about 3,000 feet higher than Mt. Blanc); the bleeding at the nose and intense feebleness manifest, are wanting in the Arctic regions, which would go to show that it is not so much the absence of heat or intense rarefaction, as the absence of some important gas (or its small supply) say, of oxygen. In Arctic countries it is possible to endure great journeys through snow and over hummocks without fatigue, while a climb In the higher alps of Alaska, Switzerland and South America, as well as the Himalayas will bring on fatigue in a very short time. Mr. .Tyndall in his Hours of Exercise in the Alps, and Mr. Tyndall Is one of the finest mountain climbers in the world, says that one can only endure the fatigue of journeys in great altitudes by practice of abstinence from alcohol stimulants, whareus In journeys in the Artclc regions while several voyageurs pronounce against the use of the ardent divine and the singing birds of grove and Held that are authors of music. Poetry is music, and oratory is music, and sighing winds and sounds of the lea waven and all other things in this world of ours, whatever" their name, which arousi .In the soul of man the higher and nobler passions. Any sermon of Dean Stanly, any lyric of Tom Moore's, any speech of Demosthenes was music. So one entering a beautiful valley at eventide, when the wind has fallen asleep—the flowers present in their beauty, the grasses'verdant, the trees splendid in their garniture, has music before him—music of silence, yet of beauty. The stars in their depths by night; the waters of old ocean when excited by the storm wind, are all but manifestations of music, and a Wagner, a Mozart, a Haydn reach their grandest climaxes of beauty and purity when they go to nature and Imitate some of her varying moods- Mu. BLAINE'S letter of declination will prove a more than ten day's talk. A man of his prominence can say nothing connected with public affairs that is uninteresting; but when he comes out and speaks for himself in so important a matter as that of candidacy of a party of nine millions of voters, it is peculiarly interesting. He, of course, lays himself open to all sorts of implications, and accusations. His enemies of the opposite party will say, ''O, .yes, a plain confession that he knew he couldn't be e'ected;" those of his .own party will either say the same, or they will declare that he isn't in earnest and' that he ouly desires to pose as a disinterested candidate and as one who would take the nomination as in spirit of martyr. In any event the letter Is out and it's authentic, too. He wrote it, and those who wish him shelved can u»e It against them if they see fit. They can declare that the spirit of the letter Is against his candidacy; that it lull• mates victory can come to the party only through hafmony,—which is impossible in his cose. Mr. Blaine. is a genius In politics, aud one not a genius is unable to interpret his actions and utterances. It is only fair to give a man credit for honesty in speech until the contrary is proved, and since Mr. Elaine has said his name will- not go before the national convention of his party, it Is but fair to so accept it, until the act of some close friend of his demonstrates to the contrary. spirits, yet It is none the less true that most of them do uae It up there, General Ureeley declaring that he found a ration of a gill In the evening helpful to body and spirits of the men In other words, we merely desire to invite attention to the fact that while in some respects the conditions are the same, there is yet difference between the cold of great altitudes and that of the frozen north country. IT is not within the purlieu of the GAZETTE to discuss the morals of dancing or any other matter about which its readers may honestly differ; hence, we must decline to give our view of the subject, as asked for by a reader. In response to h ; s query whether the practice be not an unlver sal one,—that is to say, found among « all peoples, we answer, yes, and also that it has been indulged in since the beginning of history. With the Jewish people in the time of David it partook of a religious character. Incidentally, we would remark that there is misapprehension concerunig 111- chal'a course (David's wif« and Saul's daughter). She was not incensed against him for dancing,—because that practice was general; but because be . usurped her place, it being customary at that time la any religious or other affair in which, the family 'of any man was interested for the woman, the favorite wife of the husband, to lead off in the dance; hence, she was angry because she waa made a fool of—because be had anticipated her. Among Indians, negroes (barbaric) and Eskimo, dancing U adopted by medicine men for the cure of the alcK, as well as in their religious exercises. The Shaken, a religious body of this country, likewise dance during their worship. However popular dancing may be in our dsy, quite a number of Protestant bodies roundly condemn it, aud regard it *3 evil la it* tendencies. On the contrary, other religious bodies s«e nothing reprehensible. Whatever our opinion might be, it would be but that of asiugle Individual; atuf aa it waa years ,ago Fernando Wood died. He was one of the remarkable products of this remarkable land. Born obscurely, all of a sudden he rose to prominence, being elected Mayor of New York and afterwards being elected to Congress where he remained for many years. He demonstrated in the fullest man's capacity to adapt himself "to changed conditions. Ug'y things were once told of him; in- dei d in 1801, while Mayor of the great city of New York he actually proposed that New York secede and go with the south. His associations at that time were not of the best,—to draw it mildly, But once in Congress all was changed and he became elegant, courteous, polished, refined, dignltied; a gentleman in all things that pertain, at least, to the outer man. Charles Darwin, king of naturalists, declares that handwriting is hereditary just as eyes, or nose or mouth; that being true, Mr. \\ ood's handwriting, some of which is in our possession, would indicate angularity and irregularity in some of his ancestors. He was in shape as angular as his penmanship; but there all ended. In speech and manner he was courtesy Incarnate. His private life was thoroughly exemplary and his associates were the exalted in society and morals. He was a prime leader in his party and his death, some what premature, caused infinite and general sorrow not only in his party but among hosts of those whom he had antagonized politically for years. Gov. OQSLESBY in a confidential talk withered Wines.head of Illinois Chair- ities not long since asked Mr. Wines if he (Wines) could recall anything he had done that was good and that he cared to remember, Wines said he could and told the Governor some of them- Ogsiey then said: * Well, In looking back over my life, I've come to the conclusion, "Dick Oglesby, you are a d—d old fraud." Some people are perfectly willing to tell truths upon themselves but would be mortal mad if somebody else said the same thing about them. written pon.e twenty-two years which he said he was fighting siriflp- handed the other editors of that paper for a protection to American Industries. Mr. Medill was anxious to get control so he might wipe out free trade. Shortly after he did obtain control and his frifnds wondered where he g>it the money; and the Times intimates that the rabid free trade articles written by Mr. Medill after he got control, would indicate that Oolwien club gold purchased the Tribune control. — Senator ('ulloiu yesterday introduced a bill in the Senate appropriating 9100,000 for a government building at Sterling. will be just as easy to say the bill will not pass HS it was to say it would not be introduced. Senator Cullom, Senator Farwell and General Henderson will do all they can to secure the passage of the bill, and our chances for getting an appropriation are as good as those of other cities of 20,000 and under in the country. Any of our citizens who have friends and acquaintances in Congress will confer a favor by wri.iug to them in the interest of said bill. There is considerable surplus moneyin the treasury and It is a good thing for this great United States not to be a renter but an owner of its property. That sentiment is a growimg one. Our city's growth and its present demands entitle her to a building and if our citizens will take hoW of the matter and push it vigorously there is no reason in the world why the bill should not pass. —•The funeral of the late John Richardson will take, place tomorrow morning at 11 o'clock, at the residence of his son-in-law W. B. Bennett, 610 Locust street, Uev. N. II. (5. Fife officiating. The deceased was bom in Hchuyler- ville, N. Y. iu 18ia;'came west in 1800; was a contractor on the Fox river improvements; removed to Polo in 1800; in 1881 to Sterling. He had suffered more or less from ill health ever since he was in Wisconsin and for several months past had been invalid. The attack which cost him his life began from a cold last Friday. His wife survives him and also five children: . Mrs. W. 15. Bennett, Mrs. C. II. Strong, Kacine, W. B. Richardson, Polo, and two daughters, unmarried. Mrs. Strong, Mr. W. B. Richardson, aud Miss' Alice Hichardson are here to attend the. funeral. Mr. Richardson was a man who 111- deavored fully to discharge the duties of life and he lived at peace with his fellows. He died in the fulness of years.-ha'ving passed the period named by the Psalmist by full five years. EATERS 'OF WHALE BLUBBER. —Judge Griunell presides with ease, and he conducts business with great fairness, being mindful of the rights of jurors and witnesses. He bids fair to win. fame on the bench should he remain there as he won notoriety as a prosecutor of the Anarchists. —Misses Chloe and Luella Hill entertained quite a number of their friends at their home last evening. The time was spent in playing games and music. Refreshments were served, and at a late hour the company broke up; all expressing themselves as having enjoyed themselves. —People of wealth in the great cities go to parties and stay late; but they are careful to sleep late the next day, so that no inroads are made upon their health. Young people who must rise early in the mornings will pay the penalty of late hours in premature loss of freshness of colour and facial beauty. —The Chimes of Normandy to be given to-night by the Wednesday Club U sure to draw a full house as most of the downstairs and a large number of the upstairs seats are taken. This organization's giving of the Mikado was highly satisfactory and it is predicted that the Chimes will be given with equal if not superior ability. —The Cherokee Times nays that Hon. A. A. Terrell, now of Cherokee, but formerly of Sterling, and who for yeari waa correspondent of the Chicago Tribune at Sterling, showed the —Pure in spirit as the covering of earth in the cemetery where they laid her body this afternoon was Clara Keefer, whose brief life was marked by so much physical suffering, yet whose courage to endure was equal to the trial laid upon her. There is that out of harmony In the death of one so. young and to which man can never become reconciled, when the young is gifted as the deceased with qualities of mind and heart that stamped her as pattern for those with whom she mingled. Many were the friends who gathered to pay the last sad tribute of respect at Mrs. Harvey's; and touched were all hearts as Clara's pastor, Mr. Fife, spoke of her gentle, kindly, earnest, affectionate, loving nature. . The mystery of death cannot be unraveled; it is the sorrow for which there is no comfort. Outside of God and his rove- lation_there_ls no explanation and we turn the pages of Sacred Writ in vain to learn why the good are taken in their youth, when nil hearts are most attracted towards them and all most desire they should live to gladden a d brighten the home that is theirs. Were there no resurectlon, our hope of meeting again vain, theu were all of us most miserable; for who is'there of us all who has not tasted the bitterness, the death agony, wellnigh, of looking for the last time on earth on the face of some loved one and been comforted in part in the thought that as by man comes death by man -comes also resurrection from the dead, and that when all is over with us, we shall see the departed again In their glorified, bodies '( Now we see through a glass darkly; but there is the promise at last of see- Ing with all the mists cleared away. May the memories of the shoit, sweet, pure life of Clara and the promise of after meeting come as angels to solace the sorrowing ones of her household, and the many who loved her though not bound by ties of blood.

Tommy, listened to this speech rather demurely. "Tommy is homesick," said Oom Konh. "He wants to get back again. He lias two pretty wives and three ngly ones. I like'California very well. It's nice and warm down here, and when I go bock next year I'm going to bring my three Bisters and rome down here to live." "These queer people," said J. C. Greene, •who was with them, and who was wrecked off Behring's straits, Siberia, in 1881, "do not hold the lies of marriage very sacred. Another thing, they no not pnnlsh for murder. Murder, however, Is rare. There are probably 10,000 or 12,000 Esquimaux within n raclina of 8,000 miles of where I was wrecked and where Oom and Tommy nre from, and these «peak twenty-five or thirty different dialect*. Ypn may be able to understand one dialect and be completely knocked out, by another. The people live In Ice houses, 800 or 400 in n Tillage, back a little way from the water. They are very superstitious people, too. When the W. F. Marsh went to pieces and we were cast away, we fell In with the simple Esquimaux and got a couple to guide us to distant St. Michael's. It was the latter part of August, and we wore beset with such fearful storms that we could make very little progress. Our guides thought an evil spirit was among us, and went to work to get rid of It. One of them lay down on liia right Bide, while the other fastened a rawhide string round his neck, with a stick attached to it so It could be'twisted tight. Pulling at this he would raise and lower his head, while both howled out their weird chants to the gods. After awhile they changed off, and the Esquimau who had been down, arose and became chief howler. ,. He prayed to the gods for less wind, and the two then indulged In the most hair raising groans and chattering and grinding of .teeth. Finally one of them piled a big stone on his shoulder, and whirling with It, uttered the most doleful sounds. Then the other Indian was thrust up there, the whirling and moaning und hullooing going on as before. How either tue ntone or the Indian staid there I don't know, for neither was held, but just seemed to lay there. It was Bouie sort of legerdemain. At length, completely worn out aud exhausted, they quit, and the wind going down about that time, they thrttiKht they had made a good job of It, and we thanked them and moved on."—Son Francisco Examiner.

"I saw a. funny sight the other day," said a gentleman in the habit of observing things pretty closely. "It was on North Broad street, on Sunday afternoon. Three dogs of. mongrel breeds, and of different uizes and variety, were gamboling about the street in the utmost good humor and seemed to be identified with a carriage containing a family party that had been out for a pleasure ride. The dogs raced each other playfully, and seemed to be carrying little knapsacks on their backs attached to a comfortable cover that clothed them from the neck to the tail. On looking closely I found printed on the covers the name of a brand of cigar, and came to the conclusion that the maker must be the occupant of the carriage and was utilizing his peta to advertise hla wares. T^ie dogs seemed to enjoy it as much as he did. But It was a poor way of advertising, nevertheless."—Philadelphia Call. The Grocer and tbe filet. A Chattanooga grocer, being greatly- troubled by flies, put twenty-one sheeta ol sticky fly paper about his store. In the evening he gathered them up, amd noticed how much heavier they were, being covered with fllea. Ho weighed the twenty- one sheets and found they weighed seven pounds. Then he' put twenty-one fresh Bheets on,the scales and they weighed four pounds and four ounces. Thus the flies weighed two pounds twelve ounces. He found that there wer« twenty flies to each square Inch of the fly paper; each sheet had 838 square Inches and 6,720 flies, and the twenty one ibeeU had 141.120 ttlet Thus one may ascertain the weight of a fly; {or, If Ml,ISO fiiea weigh two pound* twelve ouurta, It's ea»y to calculate what im« will wdgli.—New York SUB. Industry of Jn]mii.'~' It Is certain, also, that the efforts now being made for the Introduction of foreign arts in Japan are opening up new fields of Industry,' and. creating, In their Incipient Blast's, something like the conditions which prevail In onr own rapidly developing country. The Japanese have not yet begun railroad building In a large way; but they are engaged at the development of their Iron mines, and practice many of the Iron industries. They are also stimulating ship building In a tnanner to Indicate I hat they may soon become an enterprising maritime, power. The construction lit junks after the model familiar to every school boy who has seen pictures of oriental craft has been prohibited In Japan. Only ships constructed on western models are now allowed; and the Japanese, by means of steamships, have taken possession of the linos of communication with China, thereby nearly running their more conservative or duller rivals off the rout*. 1 The weak point In the Industry of Japan, however, Is still to be found In the old fashioned hand work processes of manufacture. Were the Japanese to avail themselves of the use ol machinery, their cheap labor, which may be had for a few cents a day, together with their Intelligence and natural aptitude, would soon make them very formidable rivals ot other countries In all the markets of the world for many Industrial products. But they are still working in their old way, and losing the advantage of their low priced labor In the restricted amount of the commodities that can be produced.—New York Sun. . • Movement* ol Population. AI* OLD NOTE-HOOK. BOMB CHANGES THAT HAVKTAKEN PLACE. In a snng little honja, on the prairies of Illinois, many years ago, a travels i made the following memoranda i* his note-book. The old diary is a cariosity, and as much so is the item referred to. He wrote: "A man •wanted me to buy town lots. The place was a marshy bog and a few shanties. It was alive with gnats and a breeding place for rheumatism and break-bone aches." The place, so-called, Is k the spot where a magnificent city arose In its might and majesty, went down in a night to ashes, rose again in its power, and is to-day Chicago. What marvelous changes have taken place in fifty years history recounts, and in parallel progress science recounts also what it has done and is doing for the relief of human suffering. Apropos of this latter progress, a few citizens of the State testify as follows: Mr. Percy A. Folsom. city editor Daily Pantograph, under date of October 18, IHHfi, snys: "I think that it was in 1880 that I was cured of rheumatism. I had it nil tny life, and it finally settled in my left nukle; unable to walk without a cane. I bought a bottle of St. Jacobs Oil; used it according to directions. In a few days the puin was gone, and to this day have not had a touch of it." This presents n chronic cnse of a lifetime; a few applications cured it, and during the seven yeais since he hns not had a touch of it This puts the remedy in the line of pro- -gress beyond competition and abreast with the greatest wonders. Agnin: Mr. J. Silversmith, Editor and Secretary Occident Publishing Company, Chicago, writes May 30,1887: "I take pleasure in reiterating the good offices of fit. Jacobs Oil by saying that after it wns used as directed I received permanent relief from the' rhenmntict attack rrora which I in 188.'!." Here is four years of permanence; but not to he confined to n clnss, let a laboring man speak. Mr. John F. Schutz, Blo-omington, Ills., signing himself "A Working Man," under date of April 8, 1887, says: "Suffered three years with rheumatism in the limbs, stitches in the side and general paralysis. I used various remedies without any result At last I tried St. Jacobs Oil according to directions, nud it cured me permanently of all these pains of three years' standing.' 1 And here we have a word from a banker, which goes straight to the mark. Mr. Ira Brown, real estate dealer und private banker, Chicago, Ills., April 8, 1887, writes: "I feel it my duty to say that I lay for three months on my back with rheumatism. I luirued of St. Jacobs Oil and tried it. I have never been troubled with rheumatism since. 1 ' Mr. Peter Brcreton, Huey, Clinton county," Ills., writes, February 15, 18H7: "Was permanently cured nf'-inflamiuatory rheumatism by fit. Jacobs Oil; sufl'ercd excruciating agony, and it gave mutant relief." "Ten years ago," says Mr. Joachim Witt, • of Evanston, Ills., .writing ^ February 11, 1887,."wns suflering with rheumatism and could not leave my bed. I used St. Jacobs Oil and was permanently cured. Since then I fell from n building thirty feet high and was badly bruised. In one week I was cured by St. Jacobs Oil. It's the best in the world." Mr. Frank Monroe, Francisville, 111., writes Jan'y 30, 1887: "For a number of years was troubled with rheumatism in shoulders and hack, and three years ago it was so bad I could not dress myself. I was induced to try St. Jacobs Oil, and to my joy one bottle cured me and I have not felt a thing ol the pain. I am a man sixty years old and poor, but I would go without breitd in the house just as soon as I would without St. Jacobs Oil." Mrs. I. II. Hammond, 358 Dayton St., Chicago, 111., writes Nov. 29, 1880: "Several years ago my arm was broken. For years I was nc\'er free from pain in that arm. I used less than one bottle of St. Jacobs Oil. I have never been troubled with it since, that is iwo years ago." So these evidences accumulate, and the "break-bone-aches" of the old note-book, have surely found their antidote.
