The eating of meat will go into disuse for seven weeks and a day. —The Chicapo papers again speak of the bill for a 8100,000 building at Sterling, referring to it and some others as being listed. —Sterling has a dramatic club and there is some talk of its giving a public entertainment before many months shall have passed. —This issue closes the sixth year of the EVENING GAZETTE; tomorrow, six yeare ago (February 10, 1882) the first copy of it was printed. —Another very beautif nl day, which beginning very cold warmed up graciously as the sun climbed to the zenith and held on pleasant after it began its western march and indeed until this writing, 3-.15 p.m. —Married yesterday at Clinton. IH., Mr. John Boyers to MlssEOie M. Stull. both of Sterling. They leave at 1:40 this afternoon for a visit to Chicago. —Give a man confidence in himself and his success in life is fairly .assured. It is the same with a community. That confidence is growing constantly here at Sterling. —If all the rye and oats and corn raised in this region might be ground up as all the wheat is, it wo'uld be a wonderful contribution to the wealth of our section. |; . —The funeral services over the late Mrs. Buelah Giddlnes will take place at the residence of her son, Mr. H. P. Glddlngs tomorrow, Thursday afternoon, beginning at 8 o'clock, her pa»- tor, Kev. Martin Post, officiating. —Miss Kate Ulm, of Jordan, was "surprised" by a sleighing party last night. The pleasures of the drive and the warmth-of their reception made the trip one long to be remembered. —A large number of witnesses were called to Morrison this, afternoon in the Hubbard vs. 0. B. & Q. railroad case, which comes up Immediately after the Bohemian oats case, which is now on hearing, Is disposed of. —A Swede, named John Weedin, is laid up in bed by a strain to one of his legs, while endeavoring to raise a mule which had fallen while hauling bran form Sterling t'o Mr. Sanborn's farm in Jordan. While he was aiding the fallen mule its mate started up, which resulted in Wesdin's hurt, as stated. —Regular meeting to-night in the Council Room in the interest pf the UpporDam project. It is desired that there be a lull attendance, as the committee has report to make. The committee has done a large amount of work, and it looks to encouraging beneficial results from these meetings. —The flouring mill of Fette & Goshert, at Havana, this State, of which Reuben Reigle, formerly of Sterling, was foreman, was burned to the ground last Friday night. Mr. Reigle has not yet decided wehther he will remain, there, or accept one of two offers that have already been^ made to him to take charge of other mills. —Mr. John A. Page and Mr. E. G. Church, representing the paper mills of Sterling and Rock Falls, respectively, are in Chicago in attendance upon the meeting of the Western Wrapping Paper Association, It is prqbable that the association will make an advajiie of one-fourth of'a cant upon the product. 4f. ' —The open winter and ground hog prophets are now poking out their heads a bit and predict a late' Spring and short crops. One of them caught hold of as this morning and offered to give us a dozen unfailing signs that it would so be; but as he stopped us one day and predicted open winter and another day and said the ground hog would settle the matter, we excused ourself and hurried on. —Justices of tho pPFi'-s should be 33 careful in taking sureties on bail bonds ns a bunker in taking signers on a note. "Straw bail" only serves to degrade •luw ia the eyes of the lawless and thug tends to increase lawlessness. —The unusually splendid weather of the pnst two months has resulted in the coming of farmers' to Sterling from longer distances than usual, und the reasonable prices of goods have advertised our merchants most fav- vorably. —Lord, Owen & Co., of Chicago, say that Devlin & Co., ordered wood alcohol of tliem and it was the wood alcohol which they shipped to those parties at Pine Creek, and that caused tbe death, of Myers and illness of others. They add that Devlin & Co., refuse to set them right in the matter. More light shows greater need for investigation and punishment. If Devlin & i.'o., are selling pure and good goods, why refuse to exonerate Lord, Owen & Co? There Is chance for punishment of the guilty parties, as Lord, Owen & Co, will demand it in their own defense. — A gain we must decline We cannot suffer criticisms to bo nude upon the utterances of clergymen in their pulpits, unless what they say is published in the columns of some newspaper. While the church is in some sense a public place, in that air may attend who desire to do so, at the same time there is no compulsory attendance, and one is privileged to leave when the words of the preacher do not please him. Further, there is not one man In an hundred who can repeat word for word what is said, and there is danger of misrepresenting; and finally, the newspaper Is in no sense a judge of what should or what should not be discussed In the pulpit. That is a matter that pertains to the preacher, who is in turn amenable to the official of his church. —An actual occurrence at Sterling within the past'week. N&mes suppressed for feeling's 'Bake. Voung man calls at house of young lady. She darts into pantry-closet as young man enters the room without waiting to be asked by her mother who has opened the door. Young man sits for two mortal hours, to mama's Infinite worry. Finally I'.aks if the young lady is home. Mama answers, No. "Will she be soon?" Mama cannot say. Young man concludes to wait a little longer, anyway. He finally leaves at ten thirty, and the young lady comes out of the dark, cold little pantry, nearly fro/en and with stock of anger to last a month. As the only outlet to the pantry was into the room where the young man was, she couldn't come out without making her presence known. The cruelest part of the affair is that the young lady declares tho dark and cold pantry was infinitely preferable to his company. —The Wednesday Club should certainly feel gratified at the very large audience which gathered la the Academy last night to witness their presentation of the opera of The Chimes of Normandy, It was the largest that has assembled there at any entertainment this winter. The Wednesday Club is a filed institution of this city and last night's work is one which, following the successful presentation of the Mikado insures for the. Club full houses in the future. A long experience teaches us that people's criticisms of amateur preformances are biased necessarily to some extent by the esteem in which they hold the several actor*. At) proof of it today we interviewed or caused to be interviewed some fifty who were present, and while criticism was favorable and pleasing, some gave the palm, of best work to this one and some to that, and some to others. Knowledge absolute that we cannot, therefore criticise individual acting in manner to be endorsed by a majority, even, of those present, we refrain, but add that it ia for that reason solely. The parts throughout were well sustained and reflect credit'upon — Let US help f.-,ir"."-h-.": priors ought to PuptT- -* t ought to be curried fv;t. ought to be a grand one of Sterling.

We are assured that it is getting along all right and that the delay comes only of waiting to get the overflow lands arranged for. Those having the matter in hand tell us that efforts will not be 'made to secure the remainder of the subscription until the overflow land Is arranged for and -then the work of "booming" the upper data will be begun. —The following ladies and gentlemen occupied the boxes at the Academy of Music last night in full dress: Miss 'ennie Hodges and Mr. Roy Wilson, Misa Li.
