THE EVENING GAZETTE: THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 16 1888. Evening Gazette. ('„ fs H. L. JnUN ruMl.ihnn" R»<! T R B n N : .. JO rtn. I Per Year.... LTVlCHKn HT .'JARHIBR. it Hi TM u littir. THURSDAY. FEB. Ul. IS*. IT is just six years ago today that the EVENING GAZETTK started out in life. Since that date It has nerer failed of a single Issue except on Sundays and holidays. Ita managers Announced courageously at its appearance that It had "come to stay," and while desire was general that its life might long be spared, yet previous efforts to found such an enterprise having proved abortive, it was natural In view of the smallness of our city that many of Its friends should doubt tha possibility of a lengthened existence- It Is here to stay. While Its income by no means equals that of the Standard Oil company, or the Chicago Tribune, even; it Is a healthy, rugged child, eager to grow in strength and influence, and has demonstrated to the entire satisfaction of all that it is where it can take care for itself. Its future course is indicated by its past record. Devoted to home news and enterprises it will ever seek to give its readers all the doings of the day «nd to incite our people to public npirit and public improvements. It earnestly plead for water works month by month and rejoiced infinitely when our city fathers perfected the plan for water supply. It advocated and worked for the free mail service here at Sterling. It talked unceasingly for a gas projecting company until men of energy organized a company to drill for that natural blessing. It has urged for years the building of a street railroad, a general sewerage •ystem. and to these two most necessary things it is pledged until their consummation. So it has declared for permanent side-walks, for a city building, for an upper dam, and for various industrial enterprises whose establishment would bring added wealth and population to our city. It defends Christianity and morality, the public schools and all other things calculated to make better and wiser our people. In its columns appear no slanders; it defends no clique, or faction; is run by no machine; has the courage to point out evils in any political party and insist upon its abatement. As it has been '.and is, so it will seek to be in the future, endeavoring at the same time to improve in the quality of its utterances. It will always be just to all aiming to be the friend of all the peo pie, without reference to their religious, political or social views.. The owners of the paper are grateful for the patronage bestowed upon it and stand pledged to the promises contained in the foregoing. D.B.LOCKE, better known as Fe troleum V. Nasby, Is dead. . He was foremost among political satlslsta of the century, and made a million dol lars as a writer of political articles the most famous of which were his Nasby letters, that were powerful for good during the war and' that have in finitely assisted the Uepublican part] since the war. lie died Tuesday a his home in Toledo! Ohio. IOWA WILL present Allison's name for President and now it may be that Illinois wilt present a favorite son, aa; Cullom or Lincoln. MR. CLEVELAND is aware that he is not the preference of his party but he knows absolutely that it dare not take chances upon any other candidate. ST. Louis is giving Chicago a hard rub for the national Democratic con vention, Chicago, would rather It would go to Africa. —A letter from Senator Cullom to the editor of. the GAZETTE says that he will do all he can to have the 8100, 000 appropriation bill for a government building here passed by the Senate 'Cullom has had greater success in hav lug his bills pass than has any other Senator of even much, greater years o service in that body. The bill ia started; if all our people who have friends in Congress will write to those friends, to look out and do what they can to secure its enactment, they will but do their duty and greatly increase the chances for its passage, —The delay of this morning's western bound freight to arrive kept a number of witnesses from going down to the county seat. More and more' it is manifest that the Northwestern ought to give us a morning western bound train. One must now leave at 3-30 in the morning, or he will have to depend •upon a most uncertain and uncomfortable freight, or wait until 1:16 in the afteruoon. The accomodations east are all that can be aaked for; but the lack of a western bound morning train inconvenience* many of our people. As it now is, if one goes over at i :16 p. m. ho has to depend upon an uncertain evening freight to get back, or else watt until a *k m. The Northwestern has been the recipient of enormous sum of money from tbk point, and it would •eem that It could afford to j?nt iUell oat a trifle to accornnnxUte our people ia U>i* matter. We nave never had a W«*t«ra bound morulng.Umtu, Mt4 h»-« one. —Lots of Blainn's friends nmonp editors have acccptpd hia letter as (Aniline and are raising thf> t\ng for thrir next best, favorites. —S. D. Besse has a yearling Xor- mmn colt coming two ypars old, on the 2'ith of April, which he brought to ;own the other day to weigh and it jrought the scales down to tho 1220 Ib. notch. Who can beat it? —There are yet nine persons owning overflow lands, or having riparian fghts to dispose of, have yrt to be secured, five overflow and four riparian. ifoat of these have agreed to sign, as we are assured by the committee. -Mr. O. W. Chambe,rlin tells us that t is hoped by next Wednesday night to have the capital stock of the upper dsm company raised, the $25,000 called 'or in the articles of incorporation, and organization perfected immediately .hereafter. —Miss Nellie Overholser burned her forehead and right hand yesterday afternoon while experimenting with jhosphorus in the chemistry class. While the burns were painful, they do not interfere with her attendance upon school. —A number of Sterling people made up a surprise party on Messrs Jewett and Fred Buell at the home w place in Montmorency, last evening. 5 ' There were games of bean-bag throwing, cards and dancing. Musicians were aken along with the party. -Work to be effective in any enterprise, must be continuous. Spasmodic attacks upon this or that evil, or peri- odjc assaults avail but little, because people are apt to ascribe such movements to desire to gain some advantage to self. —The latest swindling wrinkle out is for men to go around and sell groceries by sample at prices far below market rate, to be shipped by express, C. O. D. The parcels are paid for before opening and after investigation shows them to be inferior, adulterated and short weight. Of course the scamps then skip the country. They haven't got this far yet, but it Is likely they will. —It has been stated to us by an alderman of our city that at the next meeting of the Council there will be insistence made that something determinate be done with the city building and sewerage questions. If that some thing may only be what it ought to be, viz., the starting Sterling on her career of great prosperity, as public improve ments certainly would, then would the Council rear for itself monuments, of enduring fame. —The Bohemian oats case has been continued to the next terra of the circuit court. There is much that might be void of the inconvenience, loss, annoyance and the suffering in conse quence of the bold, wicked game by which citizens of this county were robbed of thousands of dollars. Never was there a more transparent fraud The case in question is a test one, to prove whether parties who gave their notes for payment of said oats shal pay the same. In Michigan, or Wisconsin, it was decided that they should not be paid, —The columns of this paper cannol be opened to discussion of politica subjects. The GAZETTE is a local paper—devoted to home and general news and home enterprise. It treats all political parties fairly. The Presiden tial campaign will soon open, and If it suffered every one who desired to pub lish articles on prohibition, tariff, etc. It would soon have to give up its news space and thus destroy the very objec of its existence. The patronage we receive will not warrant our setting up any more matterthan at present. What political matter goes into the paper is designed to convey Intelligently, ye' briefly, the news, and while our. prefer ences may be recognized, yet we never knowingly, and never will intentional ly misrepresent or do injustice to any party. -i-A well-known citizen got tired this morning and sat down upon the pave ment; at least he sat down, and tha very hard, too. He preserved his sol emn until he saw a man and a] woman looking at him and smiling as they die so; and then he forgot his pious train ing and said BO horrid a word that the female gave a scream of affright am indignation, while the man stepped up and asked if he was hurt. This didn'i Improve his temper a bit; and as he sat there he actually objurgated am declared 'he had a great mind to sii there untill he contracted a lungfeve. so he might be abl- to sue the city for big damages. Arising he spent severa. momenta gazing at the sidewalk and insisting upon finding the precise piece of ice that caused him to slip. He then announced his purpose to see the mar shal and make him conpel the owner of the property opposite the offending sidewalk to clean it off. A fall-down does "rattle a fellow like sixty" some times. Movement* at Population. DEPARTURES. Mr. E. C. U issett for Peoria. 'Mr. W. F. Eastman for Chicago. Mr. Wm. T.

TJiillTMXG STRIKES TO RELIEVE THE ELECTRICAL TENSION OF THE ATMOSPHERE. tlio I-'lush Take* Place and Why —Conducting- Current*—High HOUKOK. Now, n^ n charge of electricity has the property of Inducing another charge of !lcf:lricily of an uppwtlte kind to Itself on any '•eniidiirting" matter near it, and as tho enrtli it composed of what Is called conducting matter, It follows that n charged clcmd sailing over tho surface of :he earth injures an opposite charge, on :.he urouti'l l»elow. The«e two opposite charges, line of "positive" the other of 'negative" electricity, tend, by another well known property of electricity, to rush toward'each other and combine. Hence when they are able to overcome the resistance of tho air between, which keeps them apart, they leap together with a flash uiid crack, producing the familiar phenomena of thunder and lightning. Sometimes another cloud floating near She first one takes the place of the earth, uid then tho lightning flash takes place Between them. Lightning of this kind does not strike the earth; but It might liavc a destructive effect on the latter for all that, bcranse it might gfre rise to the "hack stroke," which is sometimes fatal to life. The "back stroke" is not due to tho direct flash and discharge. It Is rather tho reaction after the direct discharge hns taken place elsewhere. Suppose, for example, that a track of upland :ountry, a rural district with trees, farms, and here and there a church dotting It, is covered by a thundercloud, which induces a charge of electricity upon It. In order that the charge upon the earth may get nearer to that upon the cloud, so as to combine with It, the electricity, by another well known property, will heap Itself on the most prominent and pointed objects of the landscape. That In to say, it will accumulate on the trees, barns, chimney tops and spires of tho district. The whole atmosphere of the region is in a state <.f tension and suspense. The bolt is trembling In the balance, but no man knows where it will fall. Presently there is n blinding flash of light, the sky is rent with n lurid stream of flre, and Instantly the tension is relieved. Tho discharge has taken place at one point, the point which offers the path of least resistance through the air, and at which the- electric tension was most critical. At every other place where the electricity had. seriously accumulated, there Is consequently a sudden fall of electric potential, of a collapse to its old condition, or, as it in.called, a "return stroko." This instantaneous change is sometimes as fatal as tho direct discharge, and it may ruin a building or destroy life several miles from tho scene of the flash. The return stroke Is therefore more mysterious and unexpected than tho flash, but fatal effects are comparatively rare from it. Nevertheless, since the latter have been attributed to this cause, a person cannot feel quite safe, although a thunder storm •with lightning Is still several miles from him; the number of miles being estimated by counting the seconds which elapso between the Hash and tho peal, am] allowing a distance of four mjles for every second counted. Ho may feel safer than If It were close upon him, but there is still Bomo room for fear. In fact there is no real safety except within tho area properly protected by a lightning conductor, or. in a building which Is itself a protector, for . Instance a eheet iron, house. Every building, then, should bo protected in order to be safe, lu tho country, where these are often isolated, a lightning rod would bo required for each; but In towns one rod would sometimes protect more than one house around it, according to its height and conductivity. The flash takes place at the point of least resistance, because it is bore that the two opposite electricities can easiest rush together. But the eagerness with which they tend to rush together is another thing to be considered. These two things taken together determine the discharge. There- may be less resistance to tho flash at ono house or tree than at another, but 4f the attraction between the opposite electricities is less at the former, tho flash may traverse tho latter house. " Hence ono cannot exactly say if one tree or building will bo safer than another. There is great uncertainty, and this is »~ reason lor tho instinct of awe and uneasiness which most animals feel on the approach of a thunder storm. In general, however, we can say that high houses, or thoso perched on high 'ground, are moro likely to suffer from tho discharge than small low lying houses. Tho former are therefore all the more eligible for protection; and they aro to bo avoided in seeking shelter from a storm. 60 are houses surrounded by trees, and with ponds or pools of water close beside <hem. For trees act as imperfect lightning rods, having a good earth connection, ;and especially if they are wet tho dis- jsharge may strike tho house in order to 'reach the ground through them, or, in the case of the pond, through the water. Ono should not shelter under trees of any .kind, but more especially tall, soft trees Jtke poplars. Many deaths have boon incurred from sheltering under poplar trees In Franco. Thunder storms arc said to bo more frequent in open, treeless countries, such 'as the Transvaal or the Scottish hills, and the fact bus l>een attributed to the unchecked ascent of electrical vapors; but on the other hand they are probably less destructive in such countries. Chimneys, by creating currents of warm smoke aud by their lining ol conducting jSoot, : are dangerous parts ol houses, and there are many instances of the discharge taking that road. It were bettor, then, to avoid sitting near a flro in a storm. Indeed, thu safest place.in the house on such on occasion would seem to be iu the cellar and basement rooms or upon an iron bedstead. In tho open air thero'cannot bo safer place than a dry hole or ditch, for it places the body bolow the surface of the ground, and therefore not exjmsed on a prominent place. But it should be a dry hollow, cist the water in it may invite the discharge; for water, being a conductor in good connection with the earth, lowers the resistance to the discharge.—Engineering. IlrarU'i Diamond Mines. A gentleman who returned from the diamond districts of Brazil recently says that tho stories of exhaustion of these once profitable mines are pure fabrications, designed to influence tho market. He declares that he could buy $1,000,000 worth of uncut stones in Rio Janeiro tomorrow—if he hud a million dollars.— Hew York Mall and Express. The PenoiylTanla Encampment. ALLINTOWN, fa..

Probably one of the most, common headaches, if not the most common, is thai called nervnns. Tho class of people who arc most «nb)i>rt to It are certainly not rour outdoor worker*. If ever my old 'rlend tho gardener bad had a headache, 't. would not have been one of this descrip j Jon. N'or dws Darby, the plowman, nor Tarver. the 'bus man, nor Greatfoot, the pa'ugcr, suffer from nervous headache, 3or any one else who leads an outdoor llfp, or who takes plenty of exercise in the open atr. But poor Mattle, who slaves away her days In a stuffy draper's shop, and ,rettiml» in her lonesome attic, bend- ng over her white seam—stitch, stitch, stitch—till far into the night, and thousands of others of the Indoor -working; class are martyrs to this form of headache. Are they alone in their misery? ; for my Ijidy Bonhomme, who comes to have her ball dress fltt«d on, has often a fellow feeling with Jcannie and Mattie. She, however, we cannot afford to pity quite so much, because she has the power to clmnue her modus Vivendi whenever she chooses. What are the symptoms of this complaint that makes your head ache so? You will almost know it Is coming from a dull, perhaps sleepy, feeling. You have 10 heart and little hope, and yon are restless at night. Still more restless, though, when It comes on in full force, and then for nights, perhaps, however much yon may wish to, you can scarcely sleep at all, "How my poor bea.d does ache!" This you will say often enough; sadly to yourself, and hopelessly to those near yon, from whom you expect no sympathy and ;et none. And yet tho pain is bad to bear, although it Is generally confined to only one part of the head. The worst of this form of headache lies in the fact that it is periodic. Well, us it arises from unnatural habits of life or peculiarities of constitution, this periodicity is no more than we might expect. If I Just note down some of the most ordinary causes of nervous headache, people who suffer therefrom will know what to do and what to avoid. I will then speak of the treatment. Overwork Indoors. Overstudy. Work or study Indoors, carried on In an unnatural or -cramped position of body. Literary men and women ought to do most of. their work at a standing desk, lying down now and then on a sofa to ease brain and heart and permit ideas toflow. They should work out of doors in flne weather —with tli.-lr feet resting on a board, not on the earth—and under canvas in wet weather. It is surprising the good thto simple advice, if followed, can effect. Neglect of the ordinary rules that conduce to health. Want of fresh air in bedrooms. Want of abundant skin exciting exercise. Neglect of the bath. Overindulgence In food, especially of a stimulating character. Weakness or delyllty cf body, however produced. This run only be remedied by proper nutriment. '. Nervousness, however induced. •'The excitement inseparable from a fashionable life. Exciting passion, anger and jealousy in particular. Tli Ink There'* an Opening for Alger.

DES MOINKS, Feb. 18,— The Republican •tote central committee met here Wednesday and decided to have all district delegate*: to the national convention chosen here at the same time as tbedelegatot-at-large are chosen by the state convention, each district selecting ita own delegates, but holding IU caucus hero instead of within the district The committee is unanimous and enthusiastic for Allison for president, and favors tn early convention and putting him it once in the field. Members of the legislature and all representative Republican here say that Iowa IB now •olid and enthusiastic for Allison and will push bis candidacy with great vigor. Mollenry Know! All About It. LOUISVILLE, Ky., Feb. 1ft.—The Hon. Henry D, Mollenry, of Hartford, Ky., member of th» Democratic national committee, was here Wednesday morning en route to Washington, to attend the meeting ol tha committee next Wednesday. In an inUr- vlew with a reporter at The Evening Time* he uid; "Ol), Elaine seee the handwriting on thi wall. He sew the mugwumps waiting for him wilb a stuffed club, and knowing be con not carry New York, nor be eleote-1 without that state, he acts upon discretion a* tha better part of valor, and will take the alternative of becoming the power behind th» Allison throne. He will dictate the nomination, giving it to Allison, and again become secretory of state if the Republicans are successful." LARRABEE GOES THE WHOLE HOQ. He Proposes to Regulate Wages, Too— L*g>- fBlatlva Proceeding*, DES MOINES, la., Feb. 16.—Governor Lar. rabee Wednesday night made an addrest to the senate railway committee, urging tha passage of the 2-ceut fan bill, during which be offered a chance for the railway men present to refute him if they thought they could. He told tba committee. (o go ahead and not mind the talk about reducing wage*; they were small enough now, and if necet- sary the legislature wquld take hold and regulate them, too. The sonata Wednesday engrossed the bill limiting peremptory challenges in criminal cases' to ten. The house spent most ol the day on the election law and recommitted it A blir was passod making fraud used tn ob- talng a negotiable instrument a bar to collection. After' a hot debit* it was resolved to permit Helen M. Qougar to addrew the house on the woman suffrage bill when It Is under consideration. The opposition was based on the proposition that to addrees the house when It la in session It is neceuary to be a member, and that tha action proposed was a bod precedent. * Th» Dally Wlfe-Shoot'lng; Item.
