C. T. U., spent Sunday with Mrs. Laura A. King. —Kate Cullen is in the lockup, arrested on Saturday for being drunk and disorderly and .will be kept there to board out an old fine. —Is it not strange that with steam, gas, gasoline and electricity as motors no practical road vehicle has yet been Invented, but that one must ride behind a horse, as men have done for thousands of years ? —Mr. U. G. Swairtoutleft last night for Chicago to assume duties as assistant in the despatcher's office. Mr. Swurtout is a very faithful and coin petent offlial. He leaves many warm Iriends here at Sterling. —If fogs continue to visit our region, the railroads will have to do what the ocean steamers do, viz., get up foghorns or use rockets, or fire minute guns in order to warn trains in stations that other trains are coming. —Jacob Decker was brought before Justice Alexander, this morning, arid lined 3150 avid costs for selling liquor to an habitual drunkard, as the evidence showed, at three dilferent times- States Attorney Stager prosecuted. —The precise location of the new Northwestern depot building at Sterling has not yet been made definitely known, but we understand that it is to occupy nearly the same site as the present, only, of course, it will take up considerably more room. —M.| IX D'Arcy, bar-keeper in Jacob Decker's saloon, plead guilty to a charge of selling liquor to an habitual drunkard, live different times, and was lined 9100 and costs. This was this morning before Justice Alexander, and State's Attorney Stager was prosecutor, r —Living people are judged by their faults; the dead by their virtues. It was'a Latin injunction which said, Say no evil of the dead. We have often thought If we extended the same kindness and charity to the living, how much brighter and happier would be this world of burs. —Frogs are In steady demand In Chicago. There are swamps enough in this county to make the Industry profitable, to a few people, at {feast. If the edible frog be not present it can easily be introduced. We might add 'that mushroom growirp is exceedingly prof- itable.and could be followed here easily. —Dixon has a Unlversallst society, and It will hold a protracted meeting beginning Feb. 23 and ending March 4, next. Our Dlxon friends ought to be very ready to take told of a rellgion|that promises them immunity from eternal punishment in the nexc world, provided those having the matter la hand can give the proper guarantees. —The news from Mount Vernon, this State, is terrible. Two thirds of the city Is leveled and numbers 'of lives lost by a terrible cyclone which struck it about 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon. More than thirty people are known to have been killed, besides large numbers wounded; and-it is thought that yet other dead will be found. —Vice Commander Harrison, of Will Robinson Post, reports the largest gathering of a similar nature that has ever yet met at Springfield. All had a grand good time, and some tip op good speeches were made As a matter of course all the candidates for State offices were theie, and exceeding- y glad to see the soldiers of the Grand Army. —The City Council, of Aberdeen, Dak., galled by the frequent references to the Dakota blizzard, at its meeting Feb. 0, last, as stated in the Free Press of that city, which a friend sends to us, adopted a series of resolutions setting forth that as the "east" had been 'visited by one of lho»e terrible storms peculiar to that region," therefore Aberdeen express sympathy witli laid unfortunate out and piopow* Ulkiag up contribution (Of aid Of 3*019. —"liertie" is informed that a horse, a man, a bird, and a flea, in fact all living creatures are animals; hut in America writers have grown into the careless habit of employing the term animal to distinguished ranmmalg, only. —Matthias Kohl was fined 820 and costs by Justice Alexander, this morn- iiift. for auppljing liquor to Edward Stevens, a man on the black list. The fine and costs amounted to twenty- eight dollars. States Attorney Stager prosecuted. —See the outside of the paper for most of our local news. The change in arrangement is for to-day only, ana was made necessary in consequence of an accident. To-morrow and afterwards the matter will be found where ivordinarily is. -Grandpa Whitney, of Franklin Grove, is la his 9-fth year, and yet he is in possession of perfect health and continues his allotted task of chopping and splitting stove-wood. Except for great deafness, which has increased upon him of late, It would not be credited that he is within twenty years of his actual age. He passed his 97th year about a month ago. —A farmer says: "Why can't I shoot prairie chickens on my own property?" Because, if it were permitted a man to shoot them on his own property,' ( it would be permissible for him to let an agent do it for him. A State has a right to adopt plans to prevent the extermination of birds and animals and It can only do so by forbidding absolutely any from killing them daring certain periods. —Mr. John Charter received a cablegram from his son James, bidding him send cuts of five different sizex of engines manufactured by him While the cablegram did not say so, Mr. Charter thinks this would indicate the close of a deal with European parties for the franchise, which Mr. Gait went to London to endeavor to make. The GAZETTE sincerely hopes that the deal has been consummated and at terms satsfactory to the gentlemen iiiter- ••sted. ' . —Philip Fein was put under 8100 bonda to appear at the next term of the circuit court to answer to a charge of furnishing liquor to an habitual drunkard. The hearing was before Justice Alexander and States' Attorney Stager appeared as prosecutor This man Fein for upwards of a year has had no visible means of support, beyond the furnishing of liquor to .ha bltual drunkards, as a party who knows him well informs us. .He was unable to give bonds and this afternoon he was taken to Morrison. —The sudden rise of wind yesterday evening was somewhat suggestive.of a tornado. Mt. Vernon tills State was struck by one a trille -earlier. These tornadoes (which are but cyclones of greater intensity and less area) come after a great change in the weather; that is, at those seasons when there are sudden changes.from cool or cold to great heat. The electrical and some unknown force as well aa the great violence of the gyratory winds, make the tornado a visitation much to ba dreaded by any people. •--—Would it not be a good plan for farmers to call a meeting here at Sterling to arrange for a regular "horse day" one day in each month. Such a meeting would cost nothing, and it would cost nottkiug to perfect arrangements for such a day. De Kalb has auch a day, and it draws together men from long distances who have horses to sell, and men from much greater distances who desire to buy horses. This would give an absolute, regular market for horses and would Insure the highest market prices for the same. -y*B." writes to ask If anything is being done about a street railroad. We answer that two separate parties are working at the matter and hope to be able to have something tangible done during the coming season. "B." asks, also, if the GAZETTE has lost interest or faith In the project. We answer that the GAZETTE has never yet pnK posed any project that was not practical and feasible; and it has never yet advocated any measure that it has lost confidence in. The street railroad is a need; it would prove a great public blessing and profitable to its •wnen. Later on we shall have much to any about the matter. —Envy never helped any man or community. While the envious man sits still,brooding over tbe good luck that has chanced to some individual, the big-spirited man if he does not rejoice over his neighbor's prosperity, he at least makes it a spur, to activity on his own part. Our neighbors at Dixon are just now felicitating themselves over the new condensed milk factory about to be put up. Let our neighbors have their good luck; we don't envy them, except so far as that we'd like to have all that they get and much more, also. Let Dlxon grow, and let us grow faster. Let us carry out tbe projects we have in view, utilizing all agencies at command, and thanking God our lines are cast in such pleasant places. —Great credit is due to the officers, States attorney Stager, Marshal Fitz gerald, Deputy Sheriff Drake and officer Shultz for the arrest and prosecution today of parties who nave sold liquor to individuals on the black list Ont- of the parties arrested Saturday for being drunk and disorderly let ouUomt nformation today at his trial, as tu where he got his liquor, and all tht- parties from whom he alleged that hi obtained it were promptly arrested ano either need or held to the next term ol circuit court.

She could not sleep but coughed almost incessantly. I was induced by a friend to try Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and was abtonished at the immediate relief it gave her and the cure it produced. 1 would not be without It in the house for any price. I have tried many remedies for coughs and colds, but this Is superior to anything I have ever tried. Prof. J. M.
