It will be the size of the present barn. —Misses Jennie and Annie 'Smith gare]a leap year partylast nlgbt.and the time passed vary delightfully. A very nlcn supper was served. —Because a man pays two dollars for a sleigh ride, that does not warrant him in taking twelve dollar* worth of use out of the horse In speeding it beyond its ability, or in pounding it beyond its deserts. —Here is the latest through the telephone: "Send me a ton of coal." "All right; anything else?" "iTes, send me a dozen bananas." "All right; we'll give "em to you. "Much obliged; but don't throw 'em on the coal before you weigh it; can't afford to eat 'em at the price of coal." / —Mrs. W. A. Goodenough, living two miles west of Morrison, sends us a bottle of preserved green gages, put up by her 25 years ago; the fruit raised on John Goodenough's farm in, Elllsburg township, Jefferson county, New York. That is a goodenough housekeepers record for anybody. —Chronological: Today is the anniversary of the surrender of Fort Donolson, in 1802. What associations that event awakens! It was one of the first Union victories of the war, and it the beginning <-t the fame of Grant, which grew brighter and brighter from that time onward until the surrender at Appomattox. — Tuesday evening while the {congregation of 'the Broadway M. JE. church were at prayer, a chandelier containing six lamps, fell to the floor, striking in its fall Mrs. James Buzzard upon the shoulder, and sha has been- suffering severely ever since in consequence of the shock.

She is praised highly by the Pharos newspaper of that icity, as wife, mother, neighbor, sister and friend. —Mr. Milton Klllposie was in town yesterday. Mr. K. is a gentleman, who travels about over the continent and sells his "poems." Killposie IB uugge- tive,— killjpoesy, for instance. Yet, there ia the first name Milt n, with all his glory of immortal verse. Mr. Kill- posie has a pack on his back and that pack la filled with his own poetry. It may not be as classic aa his namesake's, but he ia just as proud of It, never-the- less. — Bessiewlshes to know if the 25th of December is really Christ's birthday. Answer:"" The precise "day and year even arc unknown; but aa Joseph and Mary came up to Jerusalem, in otied- iince to a decree of Ctusar Auguatuu, and aa Judea'a bills and valleys are and were almost impassible in winter, it is thought that he was born In the spring time ;lthat. it would',be in that season, aay May, when roads were good, that the emperor would be most likely to convene his people at the capitals of the their several provinces. , —The Citizens Association met last night in the Council rooms and elected the following officers, all of whom are re-elections, except J.

Thome and D. B. Strlckler. Reports were make on the upper dam overflow matter, and matters of general moment to the city;,consldered. The question of a government building also was spoken of. —Overheard from the editorial room hla morning: names only fictitious. Sam, hand me that abootlng atick and '11 make that form trim." "Bob throw ,bat man into hell." (a stereotype cut of some patent medicine; hell lathe epository of old type) "Jo Where's the devil?— "Dlstributln 1 pL" "Ben slug ;hat column." "Hurry put a head on ;his." And besides these there were confusing sounds of leads, dupes, takes. aorta, chases, racks, cases, atands, alleys, justify .and other words unknowable to auy gave printers, while ever and auon there broke oat ia stertorous tone tout single word "copy." this last ifae mortal kvtmiaa of Imlf the *diton —Sheriff Keefer and Deputy Sheriff Fuller brought up the jury In the Hub bard vs. C. B. & Q. case on the 10:28 train today to look over the ground in dispute. They returned oh the 1:10 train. —Cold weather out iu Los Angeles and coal up to from 820 to 825 per ton, and that so poor, according to a paper of that city, that it takes two hours to hent a kitchen, up. People suffered greatly while the cold lasted, while men on wages found coal a luxury almost beyond reach. —Frost this morning took on strange freaks. In some places it was "spotty," anil inclined to be globular in form; in others it was flakey, and in others it was fine impalpable and very dry,— three separate and distinct manifestations of it in one morning and within less than a half acre of space. —There were a large number of the frleuds of the late Mrs. Ueulah Gid- dlngs gathered at Mr. S. P. Giddings this afternoon to attend the funeral services over her remains. Rev. M Post officiated and spoke earnestly and feelingly of the virtues of this estimable lad j, now gone to that reward for which she labored so faithfully for upwards of sixty years. Her remains were interred in Sterling cemetery. —Sterling Lodge, No.. 300, I. O, G. T., met last night and completed its organization as far as possible. The next meeting will be on Wednesday evening of next week, at the hall of Pearl Lodge, A. O. IT. W., in '.Union block over Oliver & Co., and It Is hoped Hi lit all who wish to assist in raising the' fallen, and keeping others from falllrg will rally to the work, and bring the Lodge up to be a power for good In the community. The regular night of meeting has not yet been settled upon. —"Politics" is informed that Jackson was not entitled to the Presidency in 1824 by reason of his plurality vote; the law is that Congress shall choose some one of the three highest candidates. If it had meant that the man receiving a plurality of votes should be elected by Congress, it would have said so. Jackson and hla fr .ends did insist at the time and for four yearsjaf- terward that be WbS entitled to it, but this was said to deceive the Ignorant voters, oil whom there were many more proportionately in 1824 than[l888. —Mr. W. M. Ulllon, of the Northwestern Barb Wire Company, and Mr. J. ArJ. Zeller, of the Rock Falls Barb Wire Company, are at St. Louis in attendance upon the barb wire manufacturers' association. The meeting ia for the purpose of fixing prices and establishing friendly relations with Washburn & Moen. The manufacturers refuse to pay the royalty any longer. Aa the Washburn & Moen folks' royalty amounts to 8390,000, they decline to give it up; as an Iowa decision declares they don't have to pay, the manufacturers-wish to keep that 8390,000 to themselves. Washburn & Moen don't feel like going in with the others so long as the royalty ia not paid. Except amity be had, there is not much chance for a pool. —Memorial exercises were held In the court house at Morrison Monday evening over the late Hon. John V. Eustace, judge of this circuit. At the last term-of this court, Messrs. O. F. Woodruff W. H. Allen and J. E. Mc- Phorran were appointed a committee to draft resolutions and memorial upon bis life and work. Mr. Woodruff accordingly presented resolutions supplementing them with a speech.. Then Mr. J. E. McPherran offered a memorial of peculiar strength and beauty in a speech that won for him the highest praise from all who heard it. He paid a just tribute to the memory of the deceased in language that was chaste, pure and elegant. Fitting and feeling remarks were likewise made by Hon. James Dlnsmoor and Mr. William Barge; also by Judge Grinnell, who ordered the resolutions to be placed on the records of the court and a copy to to furnished the family of the deceased. —Country correspondence is always read by the subscribers of the localities whence the articles come flrst of any ' ; '>|—The farmer is the principal aim of petty sharpers. Elsewhere we refer to a grocer gamo being played. When it isn't one, it la another. The only hope of the farmer is to have no deuls with a stranger—if the deal looks inviting. Men don't go around the country enriching farmers to impoverish themselves. Mterllng Boomlnjr. Call on P. T.

She could not sleep but coughed almost incessantly. I was induced by a friend to try Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and was atttontshed at the immediate relief it gave her and the cure it produced.
