Bond for 820,000 filed and approved. . —David Wink saw a fire proceeding from a basket on the porch in the rear of Rea Frazer's cigar store this mom- ing and rushed In and suppressed the flames before they did any damage. —The GAZETTE desires to have reported to it all cases of real estate transfers in our community; also all parties who purpose erecting residences, business houses, or .other struc^ Cures the coming season. —There is talk around the depots this morning that some man shot Into a passing freight last night. The name of the alleged offender has been repeated with the report, but no motive has been ascribed foi the act. —Fulton, Morrison, Clinton and Lions Odd Fellows had a very pleasant time, socially at Fulton' on Monday night, the members of the lodges from the several places named having met there for cultivation of acquaintance and meeting of old friends. —A farmer having ten acres of corn In shock in a field not far from his house informs us that large numbers of prairie chicken have been boarding at his expense all winter and he begins to wonder whether the State ought not to suffer him tovmake reprisals,— get some board out of them, as it were. —Charles Cochran plead guilty before Justice Alexander last evening to a charge of furnishing liquor to an habitual drunkard. He was held in 8200 bonds, unable to give which he was taken down to Morrison on the I: iff train. States Attorney Stager prosecuted. . rsMonday night Fulton "had a flre; loss about 8500. The building was occupied as 6. residence by J. I). Farwell aud L. P. Hill. The Journal invites at tention to the fact that in six years that city, has lost no less than a dozen houses by flre. In the same time Sterling has not bad a single conflagration. —Chairman Jones, of the State Central Committee, has issued a call for a meeting of the State Central Com ; mlttee at the Grand Pacific Hotel, Chleago, March 6, next, for the purpose of' calling a State convention The usual Invitation In extended to leaoing Republicans to be present for conference and counsel, — Stanton Morgan, of Hock Falls, was arraigned before Justice Alexander this morning on a charge of furnishing liquor to an habitual drunkard. He was held in 8200 bonds to the circuit court and being unable to give which he was taken to Morrison on the 1 :18 train this afternoon.' State's attorney Stager, prosecuted. —Mr. George W. Bre'wer, alderman first ward was completely surprised by a large number of friends from Sterling and Jordan calling upon him In a body, bearing refreshments, which they subsequently served. The evening was spent agreeably to all. Mr. Brewer exhibiting decided pleasure at this manifestation of the esteem of his friend*. —Jacob II. lloofatitler for more than ten years past a lecturer in the temperance fleld, but who for several years has not appeared before a home audience addressed last night and the night before an audience in the Broadway M. E. church and will again favor them this evening with a lecture upon the same subject. Mr. Hoofititler's talents as a speaker none will deny who have heard htm, whether they are friendly to him or the cause he espouses, or contrarily inclined. —Au amusing Btory is going the rounds of the northern Illinois press ,o the effect that a party not long ago came into Sterling In a sleigh to which BO large a bell was attached, that it geared all the people aud horaes, half to death and net the members of the Council lu a terrible quandary aa to what they should do,—repeal the bell oniioAiioe or regulate th« aize of the bella to be u»«d t «tc. «o away from home to l«arn w>w»,—tt»*t dent h»p- •!*"• —Clinton, Fulton and Lyons ail look for beneficial results from the proposed new bridge across tho Mississippi at, that point. —Not a singlo outward manifestation anywhgro today thiit (ieorge Washington had a birthday. Gutss we'll have to change his birthday to Decoration day or Fourth of July. Incidentally, we knew nman who lived to. be (is years old and he died in the firm faith that Washington was born on the Fourth of July. —At Leaf lUver in Ople county on Saturday and Sunday, so a private letter Informs us, there was great excitement growing out of a report that the murderer of A. J. Snell had passed through the village. Quite a large party of citizens organized and scoured bush and wood and fleld. " The man proved to be somebody else nnd the $2,000 reward they will not get. —Agreeably to a law passed by the late legislature the Governor of this State will soon by proclamation flx a day to be called "Arbor day" (Latin, ark>r r a tree) in! expected that people generally will set out trees in this State. Trees are a necessity to rainfall; their entire removal have converted fruitful places Into deserts. These is too little forest area; there are too few trees In Illinois. We hoj>e and believe the law will result in great good. —The GAZETTE boldly predicts great activity here tnls spring; or to put it more correctly, for there la activity here now,—greatly increased activity in the spring. What with the great •(mount of work which will be done by the 0. H. ifc Q. and the Northwestern railroads, the construction of an elegant city building, the building of a complete and thorough sewer system, the dam increase, and other enterprises, to say nothing of the street ntll- roae and the starting up of new factories,.and the possible finding of natural gas, it is of no use to go further than Sterling to find a live city in which to settle for money making. Add to this, we are one of the healthiest cities on this continent. —The pictures of the Battle of Shiloh and the feats of the Drummer Boy ofShiloh attracted a moderate sized aadleuce to the Academy last night. To those fond of martial anisic, or "fcho take pleasure in the results of continuous practice in any given direction, such performance as was given by the Drummer Hoy would have been exceedingly pleasing. 1 To play as he did with two, three, four and live sticks; to imitate the battle charge, the musketry (lie, cannon boom, and the other sounds of battle, aud, besides, to give a thousand and one other Imitations, with but sticks and parchment stretched over a cylinder, to be able to make sticks rattle so fast that eye could not follow;— to itake them beat against one another and against side of drum, and al to rhymthical measure, are to attain the climax of skill and .artistic results in that single direction. It demonstrated the possibilities of application. Besides old soldiers present had brought before ithem more than once' those scenes of twenty-odd years ago when death rode on every breeze and dwelt In every camp. —Mental processes must be the same la Individuals; ..else how can one explain the finding of the same artl 3lo in ten or twelve exchanges, each claiming it to be original ? By the way; a number of newspapers are insisting that to take a newspaper from an office without paying for It Is petty larceny; but how about taking articles .from other newspapers without giving credit for them? It passes our comprehension that any man should assume.the duties of editor and yet be compelled to resort to the c'-nteraptible device of palming off the labors of another as his own. An exchange, and a daily, too, trom a county north of ua is before us. and we detect nine articles on a single page Of its issue, that we have seen in other newspapers. Yet the paper In question palms them off for its own original matter. This practice is as bad as claiming any sort of property. A conscientious editor will work like n galley slave to get bold of items, and then will be subjected to the mortincation j of seeing some one else steal his articles and pass them off as hia own. The GAZETTE has always consented that its news items shall be used without giving credit; but its 'opinions, comments, etc., it does' insist shall not be used except this paper be given due credit therefor. —The local editor of the Freepo'rt Journal evidently tortured to find local Items of news puts In one of its columns the slander from the Chicago Tribune's Washington correspondent, to the effect that Sterling is a chronic seeker after a government building. Sterling has asked for nothing before from the government. It did once ask for the 8->ldlers home from the State, but failed to get it Sterling has paid more revenue to this government than all the other cities of the three upper tiers of counties of northern Illinois combined (leaving Chicago out), and has never had a cent iu return; never" had Congressman, or a collector, or assessor of Internal revenue, or any other Presidential office except postmaster and -the law compels him to be a resident of the city. Sterling has dons loyal duty by the new tf ,id of X. Carpenter & WtrrllBj Bonmlnfr. Call on P. T. Vanllorne for plans and specifications for all ktads of buildlnga and cut of same. tf l<ot* tor Male.

The Chicago papers speak in high 'terms of her lecture, and as further proof of them tfe cite the fact that she ras lectured it Aurora live different times under the auspices of-the Ladies Aid Society .)f that church.

THE CniLU KECOVERED;—My little ijirl, aged seven yeai s, was afflicted with 4 severe cough and cold. 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. I 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 1 have ever tried. 1'iof. J. M.
