Judge (}rinnell going into Chicago this morning- . —Superintendent Hendricka is examining applicants for teachers' certificates in Wallace school building today . —Ming () Conner,-Western Union Manager at this place, is 111, and a Miss liush, of Chicago, is taking her place. —Chronological; Today is the anniversary of the inauguration of Jefferson Davis as President of the southern confederacy. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the first national thanksgiving in 1795. —A class is forming for the study of the new language "Volapuk." The gentlemen interested are enthusiastic and confident that a time i» coming when those prolicie'.t in it will command big salaries as teachers of others. —Henry Dement is reported as say- Ing he's a trifle afraid, the people will be unwilling to give him a third term, Out he would be very glad to take it. Naturally. Whenaniau retires of his own volition from A fat office, then he will be an eighth wonder of the world. —Editor Patrick, of Erie, besides sundry other presents to his daughter, gave her a one-half interest in bin paper, the Independent, at her marriage with Mr. Ilannon, who is local editor of the paper. The presents were many, and most of them expensive. —The frost this morning was a heavy one,—the tiny crystal kind. With the rising of the sun there was "consider- aljie of a fog which held on to some extent throughout the morning. The thermometer at 7 o'clock registered 1R degrees above zero. —Complaint comes that a "cat" who has had a couple of warnings from .this paper, in the past has been again wandering from home. Kslrays of this kind are sometimes picked up by the police, and sent out of the State, or down to Morrisqn. x —'Ihere was a surprise'party made upon Mrs. II. L. Mangan last night. She was out visiting and coming back at 0 o'clock found her house occupied by her neighbors, whom she welcomed gladly, and so pleasant did they find it that they remained until 2 o'clock. —Our local , weather prophet says, Ualu or snow in thirty six hours, with c ,ances in favor of the former." He hadn't courage to hand in a prediction for two months and this is published with the definite understanding that if he fails, he suffers another freeze out. —Ben Bressler deserves credit for his. enterprise and pluck In his explor- ing'for gas. He is confident that nature has deposited a wealth of gas or oil, and he is prosecuting his work with energy that merits success, . The UA- ZETTE will be greatly pleased to be able to chronicle success as the result of his labors. —Just a quarter of a hundred young people proceeded in sleds to the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Martin • Qrubb, living north of Sterling, last night, bringing surprise but- pleasure to the enforced hosts, who exerted themselves to the fullest to make all enjoy themselves. An oyster supper was served during the evening. —We thank our anonymous correspondent, .the "earmarks" , of whose handwriting told us who he is, for correcting us as to Mr. Spinner's home. Being personally acquainted with him and bavin? heard him speak, of the lovely Mohawk valley, we -knew his home was New York State, and we don't know how we came to write it Pennsylvania. . —Last night there were several sleighing parties.—some • larger and some smaller, doub.tless BO many because they regarded it as about the last possible to be taken for the season. Many of .them regretted the taking them. In some places there wasn't much more snow than in July; in others there was too much. Xow it was up and now it was dow.n, and all the time it was sort of joggetty jog. But they called It a sleigh ride all the same. „'..•—A young gentleman told us this morning that he thought he had now so arranged matters that a substantial toboggan slide would be constructed by him and some others this fall, in readiness for the next winter These slides have been decidedly remunera- tlvo In other places. It Is said that the exercise is a most fascinating one, and that once one baa engaged in it, he or she will avail themselves of every opportunity to Indulge in it. Hence the profit to the owners. —The new postal law makes it larceny to take a newspaper from the post office and refuse to pay for it, and a story is going the rounds of the press to the effect that an Illinois printer brought suit against 43 men who had not paid their subscriptions and 28 oi these making affidavit they had no property, he had them aneeted for petty larceny aud held in 3300 bonds. |Aa a« name of newspaper is given, we doubt w hetaei ttitt story u true, but stiU, uts'ior the law, it ta poulble to have suea s Ihmg happou. —A gentleman said to us to-day, '•Do you notice that fog? See how the steam arises. It means there is no frost is the ground. Therfi is no frost except where the first snow was blown oft from the ground. You don't see any water running, d» you? No, and you won't until more falls from the clouds. There was a big lot.of snow,— an awl'ul big lot. The sun has sucked up only a part of it. The rest has gone into the thirsty ground, and will help to Qll the wells with water. —An old gentleman who claims to have observed the matter for fifty years, assures us that for every day of fog in February there will be a day of frost in May. The first four days of February were foggy and today being so, and the statement above made being true, there are five days of frost already charged up against May. Understand, this statement is not ours, but is made by one who believes in it as firmly as others believe in the ground hog theory. —If any community, we care not wkere, could have the time given to slander and scandal devoted to labor to be paid for at ten cents an hour for each individual engaged, in ten years It would have a sum big enough to build fine school-houses and churches sufficient for its accommodation, as as well as a city building, macadamized streets, brick or stone sikewa'lks and sundry other improvements. Or if devoted to intellectual talk, it would result in the higher education of all its'people. —The fact that Colonel Stam'baugh has received quail from the south for distribution in this county, again suggests the idea that it wiuld not cost much to send south and purchase several hundreds of this most toothsome bird. From ' hunting and the severe cold of two or three winters they have become nearly extinct up here,—but it would demand but little time for them to become plentiful, now that they are protected by law, as they are very fecund. A thousand: of these birds well scattered over the county would If left alone undisturbed for four years, so multiply as to make their reduction a necessity. They can be bought lin any southern market for a dollar a dozen. It would not do to delay matters much, as they will soon be mating down there; indeed, it is probable that outside of the mountain regions of the south, at all points south of North Carolina they have already mated. —Six years ago to-day, the EVENING GAZETTE was in the first days of its being, and it published a letter from a friend to the eltect that he was pleased with the paper and that it was just the right size. In these six years, the paper has just doubled its size, and nearly trebled its news. If it continues to grow in that proportion in a century wo.ild be bigger than the London Times. In these six years while the GAZETTE has grown in size and circu : lation, Sterling has also grown in population and wealth, and -grown particularly in public spirit. While it can point to but two public enterprises brought about, viz., the water works and free delivery, both of these are important and valuable. But the people have got out from themselves and are boldly discussing measures of general moment, and confidently look forward to their coming to pass. Corresponding spirit and endeavor on their part will show infinitely greater results in the next six years. Our people have taken a good ready and are resolved to effect something that will give the city an upward Impulse which nothing can stop. —Faded now seems everything. The glorious mantle that for yearly two months concealed the brown earth from gaze, has melted before the ardent embraces of old Sol, and -there is mud where a few days since was that which afforded pleasure to our people, as with merry hearts to music of jingling bells they gilded over Its surface. Yes, in the city here, one looks in vain for the spread, whose covering seemingly so cold affords waimth to earth, and which if It remains through the entire winter gives |sui'h strength and nourishm nt to the soil. In the country, it yet .lingers, but IB there, too, fast going, and only too soon will it have gone, except the clouds generously send another supply. These transitions bring sadness to the sensitive mind, always, as showing the tran- sitoriness of earthly things and th- pasoage of time. How it is winter and now summer and each changing season Is but an onward stnde toward the end of man's pilgrimage. Is the spring really at hand, or are yet days and weeks of more snow and ice t Let him tell who knows. —It ia now drawing near to the time when the annual predictions of ''no fruit this jear," will be made. —The canning factory (old packing house) WHS sold 'at chancery Bale, in front of the post ollice this afternoon toMr. E. H.Sears.'or?2!>r,o. —There is a sparring and exercise club here at Sterling, and the dexterity with which one or two use the gloves causes them to dream of rivalling Sullivan one of these daya. —Sterling is an orderly town. What of vice exists is hidden from sight. We'll pit it against any town In the United States for law and order. Doubtless there's some wickedness,— but it keeps clean out of sight, and seeks darkness. The law breaker when known gets speedy punishment. —Despite the anything but good condition of the roads, there was quite a large crowd of people in town today. Two or three farmers suggested to us that as there was but little if any frost in the ground, a warm sun for a few days would leave the roads in excellent condition for travel. Ntrrllne lloomtnr.

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