KKIDAY, FKB. 17. GEMKBAL HHKUIDAN was born at Albany, New York, March 8. iffll Thla in response to a query. He Is eligible for the Presidency, consqpuent- ly, and has a great many warm supporters. ^ ' RUTH WRITES to ask how the name "£?»" la pronounced. Answer, If contraction of Eyallne, It mi«ht be pronounced thus, Kv-a, as In ever; but If the full name be Eva then it la E va, long e, the first syllable of one letter and the second of two letters. IF GOVERNOR Oglesby desires to do what the people of the State wish, he will not pardon Joe Mackln. All must feel sorry for the devoted wife of Mackln, but It is a law of life that those who become criminals make their families Buffer with. them. Mackin infamously prostituted the ballot and his punishment Is richly merited. Let him serve out his term. DR. PATTON may be and doubtless is a mas of ability; It would be reflection upon the Intelligence of the trustees and faculty of Princeton to say otherwise; but his fame rests upon his tigrit with Professor. SwinK, and it is one of the few casei in which a man has reached an exalted place through defeat; for Professor Swing certainly came out victorious. Dr. Patton, by the way ia a foreigner, having been born In one of the Bahama Islands, and succeeding Dr. McCosh, also born under the British crown, the question arises,cannot Princeton find a native American to place at its head V THE LATEST wrinkle of criminals after conviction is to claim that they are In too poor health to g<> to the penitentiary. Banker Hopkins, of Cincinnati, »o weeps. A cynical philosopher once said that "Remorse Is only detected rascality." Mr. Jacob Sharp and Mr. Banker Hopkins ^werd well enough before they were detected ; their illness la assumed, or comes of their.detection. Some sick men can do as great evil as well ones. Besides, if it were given out that plea of failing health would secure a man pardon, every convict in the United States would cswear at once to a galloping consumption. COUNTRY UOAUS should come up for consideration at the several town meetings of the county this year, and if possible plans be adopted for currying the work forward more rapidly than heretofore. In Ohio wherever townships have had a general system of Improved roads built, land-* have increased greatly In value.' This' is manifest at once: for the nesrer a farrb ia to market, all other things being equal, the greater its value, and as improved roads Insure access to market all the year round, it stands to reason that any man who wished to buy a farm would pay more for one located on a road of a permanent character than upon one'that la walled in from market every time there is a big rain. TIIK WEEKLY GAZETTE runs npon its own merits. It is but 81.SO per year to pa'd in advance subscribers. II - li worth that or it is worth nothing. It gives all the news of the county,—lifty two times a year, at the rate of. less than three cents a copy,—scarcely the value of the blank paper upon which it ia printed. In the past-it .tried prem- _• iums and trial has proved it a failure. It is sorry that It ever tried premiums. Its aim ia to be always good; to always be fair, honest and straight and to give ' all the news. It is glad to receive new subscriptions and to hold all old sub- n cribera; but it does not feel culled upon to throw In a ten cent premium and is worth a half dollar. A newspaper baa no more right to give premiums than haa a grocer, or shoe dealer, or restaurant man, or banker. Those papers which give premiums have to make the gift up somewhere, and they usually do so, in reduced -amount of copy, Oiling in with advertisements, plates, etc. Our aim ia to give all the news, in best form and before anybody else. And we succeed, too. Price but 81.50 per year, and a splendid gift it is, too, to some friend at a distance. \\ ONDER IF it could be that in the multitude of candidates likely to arise after Blaine'a letter, there would be known to be failure to agree upon any one of them, and, that, consequently Mr. Blaine would be the "necessity" after all. Out of the race by his own statement, of course all opposition to him ceases. With many candidates there is apt to be a "compromise," and who compromise upon more than upon the niftu who retires from the contest at this early day, magnanimously getting out of tb|/race In the interests of harmony and unity '( There have been many stranger things happen than that in tola world. Mr. Uarfield went to Chicago In '80, the great pacificator, and hi* role of peacemaker gave him the nomination. If Blaine bad done tola thing in the idea that h« could get the nomination easier than though he had contended until the convention, It would be a shrewd movement on his part, ao it Is impossible at this hue dar, with IftM than four months before convention for a majority of the party to settle upon any single man. Failing to unite, who better than he.who withdrew in inUweat of harmony, eager to sacrifice hitpMtf for the good of the party! And «tlU it out? be tbat he would not wades an? eireuaistnucet accept the HIM, I* out square nnd straight for President on the Democratic ticket. [Us ldet» and liia fripnda' ia, that no man can get either Democratic or He- publican nominations except he have ;he endorsement of all New York. He ;hlnk8, further that more than one- ,hird of the Democrats of the United States are opposed to Cleveland's views on the tarifT. It takes two-thirds to nominal* in a Democratic National convention. Hill's idea and his friends' s, that Cleveland failing of a nomina- ;ion, that Hill, posing as a friend of Cleveland and all other Democrats, will come in as a compromise. But Hill and his friends are doing a great deal of unnecessary work. Cleveland will get the' more than necessary two-third* on the Drat ballot. He ia wanting in magnetism; he Is not popular with the eadera of his party; but he. was suc- :easful In 1884; and there/is nothing ike auccesa when it Gome's after tweu- :y-four years of waiting. 3'he Democrats tried Douglass, McClellan, Seymour, Greeley, Tilden and Hancock without success, and finally struck on Cleveland, and to their infinite surprise were victorious. Having won with him and not having recovered from the surprise of victory, the Democratic leaders laugh at the idea of any other candidate except Cleveland. And Mr. Cleveland laughs, too. He knows that whatever the popular feeling concerning hfcnaelf,—the likes and dislikes of the members of his party, that they dare not nominate anybody but him. Secure in his success, he smiles at Hill and Hill's friends. It ia strange that so astute a polititian as Governor Hill should suiter his ambition to be President to so warp his judgment as to think that his party would "swap horses while crossing over the bridge." And crossing over the bridge it is, for the Democrats are yet on trial. Having not yet had control of the govern ment (the Senate is a check . upon the House and the Executive), and Cleveland getting in fairly by the skin of his teeth, and yet getting in after twenty- four years of outs, it would be the part of Idiocy to try somebody else other than Cleveland. At least, that ia the way ninety-nine in an hundred Demo- erata talk. ^The Hock Island train has been on two months and it is satisfactorily demonstrated that it will pay the company. There has been average of at least fifty passengers dally since the holiday season. The company kindly put it on for Sterling's accommodation, ia gratifying to know that the Q. is the'gainer by it. We regard it as most important to. Sterling, because of the large number of people it bringa here to do shopping. —When the old gentleman saw hia cow cavorting around on a warm day in February he called out, "Never mine Moolcy, March hasn't come yet, am don't you go to thinking winter is past until March ia gone by." That is fairly correct; yet just ten years ago (in 1878, winter didn't manifest itself at all in March. It was an open winter anyway with mud, mud, mud everywhere; bul in February, we think about the 20th "large boys" left school in the country to go to plowing, and while there was a day or two of slight freezing after that there was no retarding of farm work' —A subscriber writes: "Why can't I and others throw our ashes out ot: the street, when the Superintendent of Streets takes them and throws them on the street somewhere? I can see m difference between our doing it anc his doing it." The difference is just this: There are grades to the streets and If each and every one were privileged to throw ashes and dust where they pleased, these grades ^>ould in time be altogether changed, and drainage suffer in consequence. The difference between individuals doing it and the Superintendent doing it, is the difference between doing the thing haphazard and doing it systematically. —"Student" writes to ask if there is such a thing in the world as "floating gardens." Answer, yes. In the lakes of the valley of Cuabmere (spelled also Kashmir) are Islets which have become detached from the land, and upon the leaves of th.e reed and other plants of these "lloaters" people place earth and fertilizers and grow as fine melons and cucumbers as are to be found in the world.. The waters of the lake keep the earth moist and large yields are the result. These lakes also furnish a plant the roots of which are gathered and made into a flour that makes very palatable bread. Fish likewise abound. So It Is a fact that the lakes yield the people all the food they n- qulre; indeed, the 13,000 people living in the valley might be 60,000 and still the lakes would sustain them. —To-day's warmth and the "north- ing" of the sun suggests Spring. It may be a month or*six weeks off, yet, but suggesting it calls to mind the activity soon-to be by the two railroads here. The Burlington will employ 'a large force for the laying of steel rails and the repair of roadbeds preparatory tothe putting on of a lightning through train from Rock Island, via. Sterling, to Chicago. The Northwestern will have a pet larger force laying double track from |; ere to Rochelle, as well as a force to put up a passenger depot and other buildings in its yard. It will have, also, a large gravel force for the pita near Gait, whose headquarters will be here at Sterling. It would be very gratifying if some of the improvements had In contemplation by our citizens might be begun at the same time the two roads begin their work. There is Inspiration in numbers,—numbers of enterprises. SUrt up great activity in our city, as the history of Minneapolis, St. Paul, Kansas City and Omaha show, and lo! people are drawn to It from the east, wast, north and south It U not only-what the people living In the city would do, bat U is what, also, tho*> attracted hero by the activity and b>j»- U« would do,-** well. —"Ground" is showing pretty freely about in spots here in town. ; —The Kochelle folks still are g.-ti;>:fj lopes on getting that courthouse; Imt Oregon ia just as anxious to have it remain within its confines. —Maim -ges have decreased In num- aer since February began. As February was in olden time the most popular month for mating, we might enquire, why the decrease now? —The earliest possible time for Easter to come is March 22; so that as "Felix," who writes us concerning; tlif matter, will perceive that it does not 'come this year the earliest possible time." —Hon. James McCoy, first mayor of Fulton, George A. Whitcomb, the first mayor of Morrison are living, the former at Fulton, the latter somewhere in the west.JMr. Lorenzo Hapgood the first mayor of Sterling, died two years ago. —Judge Grinnell la a capital storyteller, companionable and jolly. He doesn't think he'd be the man to carry Chicago on the State ticket, however popular lie might be on a local Issue. He thinks the Socialists would get after him. So we are informed, and it la added that, hence, he la not a candidate for Governor. —All the geologists declare that oil bearing shales are not found In this county; hence that it is futile to hope for the finding of that precious liquid. The same of coal; they say it gives out before It gets this far. But there are other precious things within the earth's bowels, and may our projecting company encounter some one of them in quantity that will insure greatest wealth to the members of the company. —Those gentlemen who promised us to pnt watering troughs on the road in front of theli premises with the opening of spring are herewith respectfully jogged in their memories. When they do construct them, it Is our purpose to explain the plan and give the cost in the GAZETTE, that highway commissioners may see how cheaply and easily they can be constructed. The horse is a noble animal and man's best friend of all the brute creation, and it is only fair that he shou'd have opportunity for slacking his thirst, when he is journeying for man's pleasure, or profit. —The little bridge about a mile and a half beyond Rock Island Junction is to be taken out and a large culvert IB to be put in its stead, In fact, work is already begun upon it. When the culverts are in and the steel rails are laid as they soon will be, the Q is cer tain of liberal patronage, because its route by way of Sterling is twenty-four miles shorter to Chicago than is the Rock Island & Pacific road, and being able to save people an hour in time ba>- tween the two cities will give such advantage as to insure it greater patronage. —When Mr. Ferguson was ' deputy collector here he collected upwards of a million a year; so Mr. Street collected something like two million during hia incumbency. In all, Sterling, paid probably fifteen millions of revenue to the government, and the giving back of an hundred thousand of it for a post- ofiice would be about fair, we think. Cities of our size which have practically paid the government nothing in the way of revenue, have got buildings. Besides the millions paid in Internal revenue, Sterling likewise pays the postoflice department » very handsome profit, the receipts-being several thousands annually In excess of the expenses. —It comes pretty straight to us from Springfield that the Governor will call the election for judge in June, when the Supreme court judge is to be elected. Thus the plan of some to throw it into April failed. And thus Judge Bailey's little plans are pleasing to him so far. But the best laid plans of men and man do aft gang uglee' and by forcing the election into politics the astute gentleman from Freeport may not make his own calling and election surer. In June farmers are at their busiest—their very busiest and are not apt to turn out and vote. Democrats being In a majority and anxious to show strength will be sure'to get every possible man of their party out to the polls, and as their strength is strongest in" villages and cities, they can succeed. Again, Judge Bailey is not popular with editors, whom he characterized as "irresponsible." So he may get the nomination for supreme court judge; but by forcing the matter into politics, he has not done the wisest thing by any means. 1 Had this election of Eustace's successor been privileged to be made, and the June election come on without contest, there would have been no opposition and hence no chance of defeat. —The most famous chicken raiser In the world is a woman, a lady in France who has grown very rich pursuing this industry. A small amount of intelligent supervision and care and some slight knowledge of the virtues of the various breeds of fowls will be sure to be rewarded by success. A decided mistake made by many is in keeping old hens. It has been demonstrated to a certainty that after their second year of laying, they are not profitable. So some breeds lay much better than Others. The egg and poultry business of America is enormous. Nothing the farmer can raise will pay so well for the investment* He can double, or quadruple, or sextuple the number he raises, if he will If a pond or creek be close by, duck raising may also be profitable. Turkeys are not so hardy. But chickens are easily raised and always come In handy to sell. There is no danger of the market being over stocked. We recur to this matter so frequently becauso^he GAZETTE knows it is profitable for the farmers to raise them, and it knows, too, that their revenue* can be greatly Increased by do voting more attention to the bust- —We wish some fanners would experiment with hemp in this locality. He might try btitn few square rods. It seems to us that ft might be made profitable. —The Drummer Boy of Shiloh is said to be a living miracle with the drum sticks. He has won highest praise from the leading newspapers of this conntry. — Peter Bressler is still working away on his farm after gas, or oil, or both. He Is sanguine that gas, at least, is ther«,»nd be is prospecting with an earnestness that merits success. —When will it be the best time to bring up the question of manual training In schools before the several boards of education? It would seem that there raicht a beginning be made in some things. —The case of Hubbard vs. C. B. & Q. railroad was argued to-day by the attorneys in the case, Mr. Manahan & Ward for the railroad, and John D. Crabtree and A. A. Wolfersperger for Mr. Hubbard. —Dixon will soon have a municipal election. There is great difficulty in getting a candidate for mayor; salary ain't big enough. Offices that pay huge salaries always find .candidates enough. —From 2:35 a. m. to 6:30 p. tn. there are four passenger trains for Chicago, —three by the C. & N. W. road, and one by the C". B. & Q. Wish one would go west about" a. m. on the Northwestern. —Two poems on spring have already been received; In time for the fires. Send 'em in before warm weather. The fire maker of this office insists tbat poems on spring start fires better than any other kind of paper. —The large number of prairie chick ens and their comparative lameness is demonstrative of the wisdom of the game law of this State. Just as these birds show themselves; so fish would abound in our river if the fish laws were lived up to. Men but destroy their own chances when they take fish out of season, and when they take out tiny ones. Properly treated the fish yield would be" ten-fold, aye twenty- fold, what it now is. It is ardently to be hoped that as the river opens all violators' of law will be reported to the authorities for punishment. —A tramp stopped at a Fourth street house this morning and asked for something to eat. The lady of the house refused to give him anything, bidding him, "go work for a living as I do." "Hump! I don't have to," he ejaculated sententlously. "Too many people willing to work for me." And off he started for another house, where, sure enough, he did find some body williug to feed ^ini. But his remark hit the nail squarely upon the head. If others were not willing to maintain tramps, necessity would drive them to labor. Wlicnt Horrent In ituiula. The whea t ia Htacked at flrst like that of America, except In the matter of cap sheafs. Instead of three or fqur top shenfa just one Is placed. It is turned hcada duwu ami spread so as to cover the entire stack. The heads of Russian wheat are long and slender and the grain small and red. It would be graded at Duluth or Chicago as No. 3. The straw Is rank and Blender, and the yield a little more prolific than In America. It Is harvested aud sown In the same month, August. When the wheat la sufficiently matured it Is hauled on long, slender, one horse wagons to the windmill on the farm and threshed. Hauling wheat to the - thresher Is a leisurely and lazy work, and ia never done till the plowman wants the ground It occupies. The windmill which furnishes the frail power for the threshing is. tha same found throughout Holland and Germany. It Is double armed, the same as the one Don Quixote set out to conquer. These mills are very common around Warsaw, In Puland, and are n$ed for evory/> conceivable work, the women even grind 1 Ing their coffee, churning and washing with them. The slightest breeze sets them going, as their faces are turned against the wind BO as to catch its full force. This appears, however, to be the only labor saving Institution found in Russia. I asked a landlord why he did not Introduce the modern Implements on his farms, and was Informed that labor was too cheap; besides, it was found advantageous to give as many people work In the country us -possible, because If they go to the towns or cities they become troublesome! It will not be till the serfs leave th farms that Russia will have modern improvements, mid not tjll then will she compete to any great extent with the United States In supplying the wheat markets of Europe —St. Petersburg Cor, New York Mall and Express. •' , ' A Queen'* Ambition Dliappolntod, It Is now twenty years since the curtain was rundown on the bloody drama which the Imperialist party played on Mexican soil, aud what Is the impartial verdict of the men and women who knew the Inside history of Maximilian's reignf I have talked with several of the leading personages who played a part in the sad business, and they were among those near to the emperor during hi* whole stay In Mexico. They agree on one point, and that is that Maximilian was inadequate to the situation; that he was vasclllatlng where Carlotta was firm; that he was swayed hither and thither, and accepted the advice of the lost man who caught his ear, while Carlotta used men and events with masculine strength and was, behind all, the guiding and animating spirit. She, the daughter of the king of the Belgians, had the heart of a soldier and the head of a statesman. It was her dream to wear an imperial crown, and It was the low of her crown, and not the death of her husband, that unsettled her reason. Disappointed ambition, and not a shock to' her affections, made a mad woman of her. Her Intimates here say lhat there was no love lost between her Imperial husband and herself. Theirs was a marriage of state and dictated by no sentiment beyond aad above that of governmental policy. She was ardent, ambitious, a woman of large projects; he was better fitted for .the eltgunt life ot a scholarly prince, and was unsiiited to the tempest ,of war aud the clash of arms.— Mexico Cor.

Union Camp, No. 140, Saturday evening, Feb. nth, 1888. in the Banes school house, Montmorency, was a decided success. The address of welcome was given by W. A. Jamieson, who made some very appropriate remarkc. All felt welcome after hearing It. Then followed recitations and music by the young folks. The music was very good. Mr. B. Devlne spoke feelingly of thfl merits and good of the order, and Its lofty aspirations, and created a very favorable impression upon his heurer?. It Is not possible to give the remarks in full of any of the speakers; all did their parts well, and all seemed to enjoy themselves. It will be a night long remembered. The most' chipper" Woodmen we know of in the camp at this time are Messrs. Jamieson and Murray; the rest are cast In the shade. Yep, Indeed they are. In fact, the Woodmen Intend to stay, as the membership is from solid oak. Not the least deserving of praise was the sumptuous supper, tastefully spread for the hungry Woodmen. 'The tables fairly groaned with their weight of edibles. The goat was tied ;'the|beetle, ax and wedges were put away; and the knife, fork and spoon took their places.
