No pig on their arms brings them in such revenue annually. —Chronological: To-day is the anniversary of the capture of Nashville, in 802. What a day that Was, and how he news flashed across the country, and what sentiment it aroused. Why, oldier boys, and others of older friends, twas only yesterday, wasn't it '{. "Tis a mistake about its being twenty-six ears, ian't it f But, no, there are Tom and Bob and Jim who were born since hen, and they are married and each laa child or children of his own. .But, blesa us, how time does fly. —"Citizen" ia informed that in iVhiteslde this year, besides electing township officers and aldermen (five), an election will be held in June to choose a successor to Judge Eustace and to Judge Sheldon supreme court udge; in November, electors for Pres- dent and Vice President, governor, ieuteuaut governor, secretary of state,, state treasurer, state auditor, attorney reoeral, member of Congress.members of the legislature (lower house), state* attorney and circuit clerk; also mem- >ers of the State board of equalization X ' —We thank our friend for his information concerning road vehicles by steam and electricity. We were aware that such had been patented, but we knew as well that they had not gone Into use, and that it ia likely to be years before they do. We have taken the position (we so wrote five years ago and many times subsequently) that the time will come when wagons and buggies will be propelled by electricity. What we said was, and that Is true, that they are not now la use. Uneven roads appear to be a great difficulty to overcome; and to get & vehicle down to tU* pocket of a man of coearu Is yet, , .1 problem. —The dam meeting last night wns attended by a goodly number of citizens. Mr. J. V. MoC-arty presided anc D. 15. Strickler was secretary. The overflow committee reported through Mr. Chamberlin that there are but three persons owning overflow land yet to be seen. It was resolved that a ma-s meeting be held in the Academy of Music three weeks from last night, where the aim shall be to llnish up complete all subscriptions and prepare for the construction of the said dam. Following Is a committee appointed to wait upon all farmers within three miles of Sterling and all men able to subscribe and prevail upon them to attend the mass meeting: for Sterling, A. R. Hendricks. H. W. Bunn, Geo. F. Shuler. Eugene Scales, Harry Hoover; for R*ck Falls. W. B. Price, George Packer and Isaac I. Bush. All committees were urged to complete their duties by the time of the said mass meeting. Remarks were made by Messrs. G. W. Chamberlin. Eugene Scales, P. T. Van Home, John Lawrence and others. —"Hegular Reader" writes; "Why not suggest as a substitute for spelling matches which appears of late to have revived in interest, pronunciation matches. It would seem to me in view of incorrect pronouncing of many words in common uae that inprovement were more needful here than in spelling." Regular Header's suggestion ia good as to practice in pronunciation,— it would be safe to say that not 60 per cent of words are sounded as the die tlonary directs and many of them are far off from directions there given. At the same time, accuracy in. spelling is of great value. Ode pronounces in conversation or set speech, and it ia forgotten. Spelling, after school days are over, comes in only when writing, and words written may stare one in the face years afterward. Practice in both were desirable. There is not much chance for our language to progress, or change, now that dictionaries are in general use aud are accepted as authorities. It is only possible for pronouncing a-.d spelling to modify when both are arbitrary. Since Johnson and Richardson were accepted in England and Webster in America, there have been no appreciable changes . Hence, one may learn'Both the sound and letter arrangement, in the assurance that once learned they will continue the same through natual lives. —Old Tirner'8~yaTu~&bout~trapplng prairie chickens recalled a deer experience of his, just as soon as he "see 'tother in ' print," and he hastened around to give It to us. Along early in the forties there 'wure many deer around his place, and one day he told wife he was "venison hongry and she might git ready fur a hearty mess." He had seen a herd in a timber about n mile away-frornn his log cabin, and thither he directed his way. He had an old flint and steel, long single,barreled gun, into which he had placed a strong charge of powder and upon that two tight lilting bullets and a few uu:k shot. There was snow on the ground and a crust had formed on it Reaching the "timber," he sat down under an oak for a minute's rest and "to study out which way to go," when he heard sharp quick clicks over the crish snow. His heart beat fast. "I knowed in a minnit'twere deer. I crawled behind the"tree7s6's to beTout b' sight. Pooty soon, I saed 'em,—five in all; a buck, doe and three fawns e'enamost growed up, fur 'twere in November. They was .oping along gentle like and payin' no tuntion to me. I were awfully upsot, aut I was oat fur deer an' my old gun ied never.gone back on me yit. Well, Sir, 'long they come, close along, the live side by side. Just as they got off •agin me, I blazed away; there was such a charge, it kicked me eend over eend. When I got up, I seed aich a klcklu' on ;he snow, an' thar, Sir, shore's you's thar an'I'm here, all five on'em were down, three dead an.' 'tother two I Inished with my knife.', At this junc- :ure, we gave a loud whistle followed by such a look of incredulity that the old gentleman took himself off In high dudgeon, declaring that "ignurance al- lers misdoubts the man that knows somethin'." —IT is the duty of A paper to give space to grievance*, 'when they come from responsible parties. We say responsible parties, because often they come in from people who have grudges rather than grievances. A great trouble ls,*however, that BO many having them appear to be timid. In their anxiety to avoid detection by the parties against whom they complain,,they will endeavor to preserve their incognito from the editor himself. We have we guess, an hundred' unsigned com, plaints of alleged evils iu our mldst- the.collections, of a few months, gome of them doubtless, just, some doubtless unjust. One would think that by this time all would know that an eminently respectable paper like the GAZETTE could be contlded in so far as for the writer of an article to let the editor know who he is.. If a man were to impart to us information and ask us not to let any one know whence it eame, we would not tell if it were to save our life. And one would think, too, that it would be universally kuown that a paper responsible at law like the GAZETTE will not publish any article that could be constructively llbelous, .even if its editor were disposed to do so,—which he is not, aa all his friends do know. It IB only irresponsible newspapers, conducted by very irresponsible men who will publish plandera and scandals, the publication of which can serve no good end, but tend only to gratify a vile taste for vulgar and low and debasing yarns. As we said at the outset, the GAZETTE will readily publish actual grievances, but the complaints must come from respectable persons, who are known to the editor to be truthful and oot seeking to get even with some enemy.

L Mohler, of St. Paul, general freight agent of the St. 1'aul, Minneapolis & Manitoba railroad, ia visiting Ing father, Mr. George Moliler. —Our city is in a prosperous condition—growing steadily and healthily; it is where it does not depend upon any one thing for Its life, but where it can project many enterprises. Our future is certain. —The accident in Rock Falls this morning by which a man came near to losing his life again comes as a warning to all who are around machinery, that'safety can be assured 'only) by constant caution. —Bernard Oltmanns, a young German, who haa been here but four months, was arrested this morning by Deputy Sheriff Drake on a State warrant sworn out by Henry Krohn, and was taken before Justice Alexander. States Attorney Stager was present as prosecutor/Two of Mr. Krohn's daughters, Mattie aged fourteen and Amelia aged twelve, testified that one evening last week while their parents were absent, Oltmanns came home from the store where he was clerking, (he boarded at Mr.Krohn'sJand attempted a most horrible crime upon both of them. Tliey resisted, and their father came home opportunely and prevented the deed. Mr. Krohn was made acquainted with the fact yesterday (it evident that Oltmanns had frightened the children Into silence) and drove Oltmanns off. The Justice aound him over" in the sum of $1000 for each offence. The evidence of the fids was stratght,although the prisoner denied the charge. He could not give bail and was taken to Morrison jail this afternoon to awaii the action of the grand jury, Officer Drake taking him down. This of Oltmann's is a penl- icntiary one, and he will richly merit i good round sentence. -Attempts at crimes of this nort should be punished jy the fullest rigors of the law.

' ^ tf THE CHILD HECOVEHED;—My little girl, aged seven yeai s, waa afflicted with a severe cough and cold. She could not sleep but coughed almost incessantly.
