THE EVENING GAZETTE: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY J8 1488. Evening Gazette. (',. & M. 1.. .MHN* Piihllshnn ami Proprietor*. • TFB3IH ! DKMVBRED BT OA!»RI«», f.j;ir*l stOie FntfS-« >! Sic<u d-Clm litHr. SATURDAY, FEB. IS. 1SS3. ALABAMA ANI> Georgia have changed completely In fifteen years, froiu a free trade to a high protection people. The manufactories have done the business for them. THE PKITLIAR revelations; now pomp on in connection with the Heading road may r?suit in other investigations and the correction of abuses, by which the employes and people generally suffer, and the few are benefltted. The reading of the testimony elicited is nol creditable to the honesty of the times. ACCORDING TO .HCIIEM, a high authority in anch matters, Christianity baa but about twenty-one per cent, of the population of the globe. But while numerically it is so inferior, it possea- seses three-fifths of the wealth and in- Bnltely, higher intelligence than the remainder. It, too, owns the greater part of the temperate region of the globe and is further advanced in morals and manners than the most advanced of Buddhists or Mohammedans Still, it has been gaining rapidly within the past century, and more particularly ID the past quarter of a century. A NORTHERN Ihinolsan said not long ago: "We Democrats have no show to gain strength up this way, because the Hepublican party managers are shrewd enough to not ruu politics into local elections. They are in a big majority and big majorities offer temptations to bolt or ran independent; then the •mailer party gets the malcontents, Frequent elections consequently enable the weaker party to grow, lint by drawing the lines only once in two years and not discussing much in the meantime, why there is no chance to get up strife within the party, and our only gain comes from natural causes- births and new comers to the section- I wish, you fellows would lug . politics intj all elections,—local, judicial and every other kind. We can't get up anywhere near to you until you do." He told some if airly, wholesome truths. When politics get into local elections there'is ten times the trouble in keeping the party together. (1) Because of custom, which allows the privilege of voting for H friend. (2) Because a man in a local contest will Tote for hU friend as against one who isn't his friend, whether the party says so or not. (3.) If party lines are drawn those, who dont fall In and work with the rest are called bolters and abused, and but too often go over to the other •ide in spirit of reveuge. (4.) Party service being test of fitness, bad men often get nominations, and good men will not support them, even if they be of their party. (5) If a man gets left in the convention, he is apt to run independent. In State and National contests one expects party lines to bo- drawn; he wishes them drawn; alt get interested. But it is only the very few who profit by politics, and it is not to be expected out side of the south that men will neglect business every spring for two or three weeks to whoop it up for party. The minority party could , wish.for such thing, becauae it is outs but the majority party could not possibly gain stiength, while it inevitably would lose by such an operation. It is always to the profit of. minorities to keep up agitation by frequent elections; it Is always to the interest of majorities to have them at no greater frequency than once in. two years, if it would keep its distance, As members of the party are not acquainted personally witb^ any of the candidates for State or National offices, there is no chance for them to fall out about them aud vote for favorites and acquaintance and friends as in local con- testa. . BIBLE HEADER asks us to give in the GAZETTE some information concern- lug the ancient Jewish manner of burial. Briefly we would state that they used no coffins, or urns, or caskets. The dead were laid oat in clothes worn in life, and were anointed with sweet spices and other perfumes. Until the Roman conquest, they interred their dead In natural caves, or artificial ones, which had separate apartments, say .two feet high, three feet wide and from six to seven feet long. They usually were of two storeys, and each floor had from four to twenty of these apartments, or separate places for the corpse's lodgment A stone was set ^groved) before the entrance of each cell, or apartment It will be remembered that when Christ came to when 1 Lazarus lay, he bade them roll away the stone. The reply was that being dead three days, the smell from the body (lying In its place protected only by its ordinary elothing) would be offensive If the stone were removed: After th~> Latin] (Koruan) conque-t, tombs came into use, and were used nearly or quite as much as sepulchers Saul and his three sons were incinerated, but that waa because the Philistines had decapitated them and hung their headless .bodies against the wall and David had them burned because of their mutilation. The remains were then placed in a cepulcher. This Is the only instance of burning the dead The Jews, likewise had a horror of earth burial, as practiced now by all Christian peoples. The ceremony of burial waa very simple. The dead was placed on a bier and borne by friendly hands to the sspulc- er, where in the larger room, in the walls of which were -, tae several cell*, it was placed and pro- ceas of anointing eone through with, when the body was laid away and the stone placed at the opening, not to 1* removed «ver more. Eulogies were sometime* pronounced. The mour&.'jig wa* rary demonstrative, the bereav«-d ones clothing themselves In sackcloth and aehoa and lamenting with loud voisa*. Friends aad r<tl»tlv«e usual,y remained with the family, ami joUu-U In t&e waiting, for *om« day» after a*- fuHttrt. —Mr. R. <t. Swartout has been called to Chicago as assistant in the train dispatcher's office. As this is a promotion, we congratulate Mr. Swartout upon it; at the same time, we are sorry that Mr. Swartont is to leave. The <iAZETTE is under obligations to him for many favors in the way of news Items. Mr..K. 11. Webster, night operator, takes his place; and night operator Scanlan, of Dixon, is to be night operator here. —Dr. Snyder, ('oronerof Ogle county, has been presented with a petition signed by leading citizens of Rochelle asking him to re-open the Myers (he sometimes went by the name of Morrison) inquest case The Rochelle Herald, Dixon Telegraph and STERLING GAZETTE have insisted and insisted that an outrage of this kind shall not go unpunished. It is all moonshine Devlin & Go's plea that they did not know the people wanted the alcohol to drink; for their agent offered the vile stuff at numbers of houses, as excellent for mince-pies, and for culinary purposes generally. If Devlin & Co. didn't sell it for drinking purposes why did they tatce the druggist's mark offy There would have bssa no hann in their selling wood alcohol, duly labeled for painting purposes, or for "cutting" varnish. Let the case be reopened and by this time it will be possible to tell something that will cause that jury to render a different verdict. Six children have been made .orphans and one woman a widow by the sale of that wood alcohol. The parties responsible for that sale should be made to give a handsome sum for the support of these fatherless children and widow. Somebody should be punished for. trying to sell liquor without license, and somebody should be punished for compassing the dtath of Myers. Let the jury resume Its labors. —It seems to us that|the Chicago & Northwestern railroad would lind it profitable to employ a watchman with police powers to take oversight of the yard and passenger houses at night. There being no one down there with police powe'r, of course no employe feels like assuming authority and driving off a few "home hums" and tramps, who appear to be attracted towards railroad depots and who in winter crowd into the water tank aud place where coal men spend their time waiting for trains aft&tysupplying the engines, and in summer sleep around in shedH, or on lumber piles, or engage in brawls or noisy conversation. Fights occur between them now and then, and the tramps getting lodgment, of course are attracted here in winter particularly. Getting a place to sleep, in the morning, they dodge the marshal, aud sneak around the less populous portions of the city and scare women who are alone at home into giving them food. Nearly always the railroad has coal in the ground that is exposed, and J,here can be no doubt that much of this commodity being unwatched is stolen, and it would seem to us that if the company would follow the example it sets in other places, that Is, have a watchman, stoppage of, stealing would go^ar-tswards paying his wages. It certainly would correct this, tramp nuisance to large extent, and^put a stop to the gathering of home burns down there, who too frequently havie whisky and other intoxicants wlt(i them and wind up their drinking bouts in brawls. This suggestion is offered to the company in. good spirit and In the hope that it will act upon it. —Old Timer gave us another story this moruing,— in regard tj prairie chickens. It was some forty-odd years ago he said, and the winter extremely cold. lie got "prairie-chicken hongry' and fixed up a trap on a big scale. Taking eight sixteen-foot boards, he fastened them together by three boards driven across and then made a kind of topless box of boards by running an eight-inch board oa edge all around their border. That is to say ho had a box sixteen feet long, eight feet wide and eight Inches deep. He sawed out a foot square from the center of the boards, and made a door of it by fastening on leather hinges. He placed this contrivance on his sleigh and hauled it out to the edge of a grove about half a mile from his house, and carefully scraping away the snow set it on the visible earth with an old figure 4 fall. He then scattered under it a bushel or so of corn and drove back home. This was about three o'lock in the afternoon. The next morning about nine o'clock, he threw a chicken coop on his'sleigh aud proceeded to Ms trap. He found it was down and as he neared it such a 'fluttering did he hear that he found it difficult to get his horse to approach it. •'An' sich a iintterin' ye mjver did hear," be said. "1 was mortal amazed, but I went to work a takin' them out, but bless your soul, I tilled that there coop up three times, goln' home with a load an' coinln' back. I counted 'em keerful- ly, an' shore's I'm here, I tuck out one hundred and ninety-four as tine prairie chickens as ever ye see in yer life. I sold 'em, 'ceptln eight or ten I kep' out fur hum eatln', fur thirty dollars. But I never ketched no more that winter;— sorter cleaned out the neighborhood." When we asked the old gentleman how so many could get und«r there before thd trap fell, he became angry and declared that if we ware always doubting his * ord he'd tell as no more; bat » friend having previously left us a cigar we uaudmi that over to him; lighting which, hi* face toon resumed Ita tranquil look, *ud after predicting that "March *ud b* a wIM an' quiet tutiuUi," be departed. —A nuiiibcr of Sterling people got sip ;i slt'Ighing party lust night ami went out to Mr. Robert Smith's, living a mile west of this city. They had an excellent time of it. Dancing was Indulged in until a late hour, and the only regret was that the good time finally came to HU end and they had to return dome; but memories of the festive oroasion are fresh and pleasant. —Superintendent Hendricks, assisted by Mr. M. • II. Kelly, has completed iiboat one half his work of examining the pupilft of country schools, to ascertain how many are qualified to enter the high schools of the county. A diploma from the country school (issued by County Superintendent of schools) entitles the bearer to enter the high schools. —"A prophet is not without honor savein his own country." On this principle, the Grand Army post acts wisely In securing a man from abroad to speak here on Decoration day. It is not that our community is deficient in men of oratorical ability, but it is that people likn to hear some one they don't know—whose distance lends en chantment,—to their fame. —Ours, is a moving people. See the large number of sale bills. Of course, it does not follow that all men who have public sales are going to some other State; but some sell to move Into town; others to get rid of surplus stock, etc. There Is about the usual number this year, and the sale's as usual come on most in January and February because March is moving times with farmers. —This is an actual occurrence. B., a Sterling man, execrates cats. It was 10:;JO last night and be was In bed. • A noise awoke him; he listened. "An abominable (he used a naughtier word) feline," he muttered, arose, slipped ou his pants, and the noise continuing, riwhed down stairs to massacre, 'seizing a huge stick, as he went along. Opened his front door, whence sound came, aud to his astonishment found it was daughter's beau, who had come home from a neighbor's with her, and was singing a new song for her benefit. —We are reliably informed that a party ou the border .if Lee county proximate to Ogle, bought from a Chicago firm ( ur informant thought it was the same who sold the Pine Creek parties) a five gallon lot of wood alco-* hoi. It would be well to tlnd out how much of that vile stuff has been sold in Lee and Ogle, and it is the duty of every newspaper to warn its readers, against the compound. It is a rank poison, which has been rejected by medl cat men as being unlit to be taken into the stomach even in smallest quantities, —The Hubbard vs. Chicago Burlington & Qulncy railroad case, closed yesterday at one o'clock and the jury retired. At 5::iO o'clock It entered bringing in a verdict of $3,400 for Mr. Hubbard. Mr. Hubbard brought suit to recover damages to property, alleging in jury thereto • by the running of the tracks of said road so near as to depreciate value by noise of locomotives and trains, and causing farmers and others to be unwilling to drive across to his property.as well as other damages. It is the intention of the railroad to appeal the case. :_; —A sleighing party composed of two big sleighs filled with a considerable number of people went out last night and surprised Mr. Charles Seidel and family. They were most hospitably entertained and remained until about midnight. One of the sleighs reached home in good time; the other had balky horses, which were very much averse to leaving Mr. Seidel's or to return to Sterling and they c«-n- sumed about three hours in making the journey. They unquestionably would have taken more time but for the indefatigable zeal of Uncle John Lefever, who encouraged others to help the horses, along; and it was a refreshing sight to witness the strength aud agility he displayed in pushing the sleigh along, assisted by others -when the horses declined to move for themselves. The party on their return wished him a vote of thanks, if they did not give it. , —It is now the betwixt and betweeu period of .travel; the kind of roads are on us that makes a man if he stalls out in a buggy, sorry that he didn't take a sleigh, aud if in a sleigh is ready to kick himself because he didn't start out with wheels. There is no wagon track, and the sleigh tracks having melted irregularly, being gone in some places and drifted in others, what there is of the tracks is decidedly, huin- mocky. Well, there's one consolation anywbow; the people' had two months, of sleighing and th« sleighing was as good as was ever seen in this section. —Friends of Mrs. W. H. Smith got up a leap-year surprise party last night, and it was a surprise indeed. The occasion was her birthday. They took edibles along and also a very handsome chair. Although they went as early as 8 o'clock, Mr. and Mrs. Smith had retired for the night. Our express agent, as all his friends know, is a great home body and a firm' believer "in the early to bed and early to rise" theory. But it was with alacrity that he and bis estimable spouse attired themselves and received their company and with pleased surprise welcomed them. The cullers remained until midnight spending the time in card playing, and conversation, ana finally left, with the assurance of having conferred pleasure upon Mr. and Mrs. Smith and of having greatly enjoyed themselves.

OPPOSITE GALT HOUSE. PURE LARD NO FUN TO BE A CZAR. VS. REFINED U D, BUI N.rc'n Dl>»«rtatlan nn Some Ohrlont Dlflcnmforts of Royalty. If anything could reconcile tho average American boy to tho fact thnt he is not a cznr, it would be tho late ntory of Mr. Btrakosch to the, effect that, his imperial majesty once, when the czarowltch played i French oblignto to the song fdvcn by Mme. Nllsson, nnd that yeurs after, when he had Income a full blown czar, the or- :hestru ufleeted him to teara, for It 'drought back the memory of that bless<Hl time when he did not have to put on a sheet iron overcoat to go out and get the mornliiR paper. Happier indeed waa this great man, with hln French horn and his portfolio as czarowltch, living from hand to mouth, than in after years as-a thirty-second degree czar with a mighty empire under his thumb and s fractious bomb under his throne. Greatness brings with It newspaper crltlclflm, loss of appetite, languor, cold feet and death." And even In death a great man does not stand much of a chance. Kclic hunters come and try to break into his grave and carry fragments of his system away to'remember him by, and the historian criticises him to his heart's content. For this reason wo ought to appreciate a country where we need not be great If we would rather not. A czar really has no alternative. He can avoid being a tznrlim by beginning in .time, but when fee discovers that he is a czarowltch he knows that It is good-by, John, as the Russians have it. Here the rules ore less Boverc. A man may escape greatness for years and years. He may be president ot the United States today and promoting pullets to-morrow. The utmost latitude is given to an American. He cannot only abstain from. belng{great, but after he has been great our people will excuse a man and allow him to Insert himself into obscurity again tn cose he feels more comfortable that way. But a czar has no chance. He really has no fun at all. As soon as he discovers that his lineage IB big he la open to criticism, and cannot do anything nn- dlgnifled. , • A czar who vronld play Bhprstop tn a picked nine or go about the country delivering a h timorous lecture, would be ostracized. Many a long, .hot summer day lie has to stay on a big red throne and reign while mediocre men go fishing. Just as he thinks he is alone nnd takes oft his hat, ermine trimmed robes, thinking that he will sit tn his nhlrt sleeves and play a few strains on Ills French horn, a courtier comes in and, making a low obeisance, states that ho has a ukase which ought to be Issued in time to catch the 3 o'clock mall. Then It is disagreeable for a man to be a czar and suddenly find himself the parent of a grand duke whom he don't exactly feel at liberty to spank I No man really wants to spank a grand duke, no matter h6w little he Is. As Americans, we do not fully appreciate the blesatngs ol freedom which are denied to a czar. Czarinas also have a pretty hard 'row to hoe, to use an Americanism. They have to meet all the social demands that are made upon them and entertain neighboring potentates, see that they have hot water and clean towels,, in their rooms while visiting at their houses, and show them the best places to trade while in the city. They also have to have general oversight ot the children, so that their distracted country will not run short of a monarch. It is no uncommon thing for a czarina to say to a vlsl^ng dynasty: "Excuse ma a moment, your royal altitoodleum; his nibs, the grand duke, has juat informed me that her eminence, the grand duph- ess, his sister, has got a Lima bean up her nose.—Bill Nye in New York World.
