Meeting on Wednesday night in the council rooms. —The editor acknowledges receipt of an invitation to attend the commencement exercises of Hfthnanran Medical College, Chicago, Feb. IB, next; sent with the compliments of Doctors J. K. Ebersole, W. B. Carolus and F. J. Scott, all of Whiteside. 'No man can tell what a day may bring forth," applies to the weather hereabouts; only it appears to be necessary to insist upon it that in speculation upon It, it is just as well to conclude that it will be somewhat cold. —Following are the representatives of G. A. R. to attend the annual State encampment at Springfield beginning tomorrow: Senior Vice Commander Harrison was appointed, to take Commander Dillon's place; Capt. J. W. Niles and Capt. A. H. Hershey. —When snow and Ice begins to melt, as soon as an inch or so of water covers the surface then the process of melting is very slow indeed,—on the principle that the water is a retarder of the suns rays, it also receiving a measure of chill from the ice and snow beneath it. ' ' . . . —To-morrow being Ash Wednesday, Episcopalians and Catholics tind to-day the last they may give to amusements for forty days to come. The Catholic churches of the city will hold regular services through the lenten period, and the Episcopal, church on Wednesday and Friday of each week. —A committee of three haa been ap- poluted by the Will Robinson Post, G. A,R. to select a speaker for Decoration day. It is the sentiment of the Tost that a speaker ot great prominence from abroad should be secured, in order to add to the interest and consequently insure an unusually large attendance. Following 1 is the committee: Capt. J. W. Niles, Capt, AVilliara Parker and Capt. A. H. Hershey. —Following is the committee appointed by Commander Moses Dillon, of the G. A. R. Post upon Soldier's Monument: A. Bayless, K W. Blossom, Capt. J. W. Niles, Capt Wm. Parker and C. Elsele. Capt. Moses Dillon was added to.the list by vote and made chairman. A committee of live prominent citizens will be appointed also and the same be announced at an early day. This matter is one that appeals at once to patriotism and gratitude. A number of smaller cities of the country have already reared handsome moun- ments to their dead soldiers and Sterling, so live and enterprising, should not be behind them. -The New York Spirit of the Times speaks as follows of Larch wood: •From the very beginning Mr. W. A- Sanborn, proprietor of Larchwood Stud, Sterling, 111., has issued an annual catalogue which we regard as a modfcl for breeders. It is printed in legible type and says no more of each animal than is absolutely necessary. The. catalogue for 1888 contains the pedigrees and descriptions of 123 animals, the ma- jot ity of which are standard." After speaking at some length of the horses Capoul, Combat, Benefactor and Yao it goes on to say: "Mr. Sanborn has not yet decided what to do with- Wil liams. Last season he started fifteen times, winning eleven first moneys, two second moneys, third and fourth moneys once, each. lu his two, three, our and five-year-old form he trotted ilrty races, winning over fifty heats n 2-.30 and better, and was never un>laced. This is a record no other station has to his credit." The Spirit of ;he Times then proceeds to speak of the >rood mares in terms of praise. It also predicts for Brown, now owned by J. I. Case,{ but bred at Larchwood a wonderfully fast record this season. The article concludes with an injunction to carefully examine the young stock department of the catalogue at containing animals of the finest pedi gree. Praise from to high a source ft* this la prfci** intlaad. —Work at the ^rell (natural gas 'projecting) is suspended on account of non • arrival of pipes which should have been here before this lime. —Numbers of people remark to us: How many strangers ona sees on the street now-a-days, and how many people there are In town anyway. —Will parties interested please report actual real estate transactions to this office V Also any other matters indicating business activity. —Those whojjurposs building residences or other houses daring the coming year will oblige us by giving us their immes, not for publication necessarily, but for our own information. —On account of "the giving of the Chimes of Normandy, the entortain- ment part of the i'. P. A. S. of the 4th street M. E. church will be postponed, leaving only a short business meeting at half past seven. —A small boy accosted us this morn- Ing with: "I say, Mr. Editor kin I arest a boy for sesdin me a waluntlne that calls me a donkey?" And he-pulled out of his pocket a crumpled illtjBtra- tion of that much abused animal. We told him we thought that if he could locate the Individual positively and could prevail upon his father to begin suit against thi father of the offeuder for t espass on the case;damages might be allowed by a sympathizing jury made up of men who bad themselves suffered from the same cause; but unless he got hold of a jury every member of which had received an objectionable valentine which lacerated his feelings beyond degree, that the chances were rather against bringing the youth to grief. Presently a bright thought struck the little twelve-year-old, and said he: "There's no law agin' my lick- in' him if the Marshal don't find it out is there '(" and before we could express an opinion upon this new point he ran off. A couple of hours later ho willed at our oflice, and he had a handber chief bound over one eye and apiece of black court-plaster over his ^pper lip. "I say, s'pose you don't say nawthin' 'bout me an that waluntine. 1 reckon I made a tnistake. He weighed 'bout ten pounds more'ji I did. I beginned the fuiss by tellin' him he was a sneak fur sendin sich a valentine and a hlttin' him under the chin. That was the last pass I got. at him, and you see what he done for me, and ef it hadn't a 'been for Jim (the editor leaves oil the rest of the name) I wouldn't had got up here to tell ye. Next time he can cull me a g'ralf, hipperpotermuss, donkey and clown all in one, and I'll stand it without a word. But say, Mr. Editor, its'party hard to get a walintlne an a lickin' from the same fellow all on the same day." We promised not to give away names, and the youth departed, somewhat comforted but infinitely puz- zle'l over the incomprehensible mysteries of life. —Again death is iu our midst and has taken away Mrs. Beuiah Brown Giddings, who died ntt'ie residence of her son, Mr. S. P. Giddings,last evening at a few minutes $ifter ten o'clock. She was born In Pawlet, Vt,, March 29, 180C, and afterwards removed with her parents to Poultney, ^Vt., where she married July 10, 1829' Mr. D. N. Old- dings. She and her husband lived for 39 years on a farm in the south p»rt of Poultney; thence they went to Rutland, in 1808, to live with their son, arid in February 1878 accompanied him to Sterling. In 1882 (Feb. 1.) her husband was thrown from a carriage and was so injured that he lived but an hour Before her marriage she united with the Congregational church and she died believing and trusting in that Saviour whom she had served and loved for more than sixty years. She leaves two children, Mr. S. P. Giddings and the wife of Mr. Norman Clark, the son and son-in-law constituting the firm of Clark, Giddings & Co., of this city. The deceased was one of those beautiful characters whom it was a delight to know; possessed of the Christian graces of gentleness, forebearance, patience, charity and kindness. She filled all her life duties well; a loving, faithful wife, a fond, tender mother, a devoted follower of Christ. She died, full of years, passing away as one falls asleep. Such a life is worthy of study and worthy of record, attesting as it does the strength and beauty of uprightness life. —Many of our exchanges are getting off pleasantries 6n the proposed dam and other proposed Improvements at Sterling. All right, brethren of the press.. Just keep it before your readers, and you may make fun or be serious aa it pleases you. Sterling Boomlnfr. > Call on P. T.

Ba measured for a stylish suit at moderate prices. 9 A —The Good Book saturated with excellent counsel for man's guidnncei has within ita pages this: "Precept upon precept; line "upon line; here a little and there .a little;" and these w rds aptly illustrate the manner of bringing about publly improvements aud public reforms. Man's chief weakness is to bo content with what is about him, or, at least, to be unwilling to make experiment at improvement. In all innovation there is risk, and he who has toiled hard for what he has must have strongest and mightiest assurance that he will personally and Immediately bene'fitted ere he will stake his earnings upon that which is new, and mismanagement of which will bring him measurable financial distress. This should not be found fault with. Conservatism is needful to the world. If all were Imbued of spirit of experiment and speculation, the world would fly to pieces in a brief apace of time. But by dint of persistent effort; by saying thla to-day and that to-morrow; by meeting all objections and by show- Ing all advantages; by taking the examples of those who have tried and succeeded, a sufficient number are finally won over to propose projects to effect their alms and ends. But it is by precept upon precept; here a little aud there a little and in this way only. We advert to this now to perauade those who get weary and worried sometimes because desired improvements do not come soon enough for them. Again is suggeated a Scriptural injunction: "In your patience, -possess ye your seuls.'' W 1th. Buch certain advantages aa are enjoyed In our locality,'the promised improvements are absolutely certain to come about; it is only a question of time. Does any one' suppose for a moment that half or tvro thirds the power of Ilock river will be suffered to run on undisturbed to the sea? or that the vast granary and pastures around Sterling and Rock Falls will not develop an infinitely larger population ? or that our people .will do without sewerage? or street railroads? or city building V or other suggested and needful things y As soon make us believe that a great tract of rich country would be suffered to remain unsettled in the heart of thUr continent; or the coal beds would remain undeveloped. This civilization of ours demands and insists upon utilization of all possible means of making money and upon bringing about such enterprises as will conduce to comfort, happiness and peace of a people. It is all and only a question of time. If it don't come to UR, our children will enjoy it. It is natural for us to want to enjoy it, too; and we will. JJut, certain as that the world advances, sure as that men age, sure as that blessings multiply upon th 'Be who labor therefor, just so truly aud surely will our two towns grow and prosper—adding to population aud wealth and all iu good time, too.
