Third. _ \VE A HE in recelot of a dispatch from the American Tress Association innouncing the death, at Washington, 'itc.flO o'clock this morning, of the eminent philhnthropost, V7. W: Corcoran, an account of whose Illness has ippeared in all the papers. Mr. Corcoran built the Louise Home for Indigent Ladles, erected and donated the Art Gallery bearing his name, Oak Hill cemetery and sundry other benefactions, beside a gift of a large sum of mouey to Washington Lee unlver- slsy. He was a bank** at Washington. During the war his sympathies were with the south. He was 87 years old, a remarkably handsome man and benevolence beamed from his countenance. Despite the large sums he gave away he died possessed of great wenllh. He was immensely sally beloved. popular and univer- —We publish elsewhere in these columns a letter written by Miss Emily Gait to her father. The letter was written in Spain and was forwarded by Mr. Gait to his family here. She speaks of the Alhamrmi, immortalized by Irving, who although he saw through eyes somewhat poetical and wasdisposrd to make romantic every spot, still his work is a masterpiece, nnd is read delightedly by every student of pure classic English literature. Miss Gait tells of the present condition of this palace of the olden Moorish kings. —A visit to the gas-projecting well yesterday afternoon made us acquainted with Mr. Hines, one of the proprietors cf the well-drill who kindly initiated the editor and Mr. W. B. Price (through whose kindness we were able to be present, for with our avoridupois we couldn't possibly have got so far) Into t 1 e myst«ries of deep-well drilling The drill was still plowing through slite, in which It cannot progress so rapidly as tnrough limestone rock; yet, even in 'hat element, headway in made at the rate of six feet an hour. Among ot'ier things Mr. Hlnej told us that las t year he had a contract for a well with a little town in Dakota, snd that he went through thirty-two hundred feet of the same shale as that the drill was now walking through at Hock Falls; and th-»t at 3200 feet the village called a halt, being absolutely bankrupt, and the well was abandoned. The peculiarity about it was that the shale was BHKVITIKt*. rap—Mr. Z. T. Gait is convalescing idly. —A big chimney (smoke stack) Is going up at the brewery. —The factories are all busy, and trade is good at the stores. —Complaints come in of a pond corner 1st avenue and Third street. • —Mrs Jarvis Dinsmoor givfo a tea this evening from 8 to 10 o'clock. —Horn to Mr. and Mrs.John Short,of the First ward, this morning, a daughter. —Chronological: To-day is the anniversary of the capture, in 18in, of the I'eacock. ' —Henry 13. Johnson got a judgment of $03.50 and costs in his suikJigninst John Dornhuah. —Please hand in'your items of newB. A newspaper always welcomes the bringer of a good item. ' —Chauncey Mulford and Tom Myers have completed their terms in the county juil and have been released. —The busy man cannot find time to bicker and he is too liberal In views to be angry with one who differs with him..' —At three o'clock thia' afternoon cloud's are heavy and durk, the wind Is oast north east arid there Is strong prospect of rain or snow. —John Ahrens & Bro., have rented the store known as "The Fair", and will stock it with tens, coffees and fancy groceries, about March 1, next. —The streel railroad sentim-nt grows, and It is as certain to be built us that Sterling exists. At the proper time the matter will be brought up for action. —William McCune & Co., have purchased the machinery and tools of Messrs. Cavert & Mallory. a»d Mr. William Bennett .will conduct the business for McCune & Co. —Mr. E. Leroy Gait is in receipt of a cablegram from his father. Mr. Thomas A. Gait, dated at London, and saying will sail for home, March 1 dry as powder all the way. Thia does no f often happen, and he added that he offered to guarantee water, if the village would allow him to go ahead. That's one thtng, sure and certain: if the drill is permitted to g i down deep enough It Is bound to bring water. But It Isn't water our peo.-le want; they've plenty of that; they want to strike salt or gas, or coal, or some other element of nature that will bring added wealth to our city. —The Lowville, New York, Journal and Republican, of Feb. 9, (we are indebted to the Morrison Sentinel for the Information) says: "One of our townsmen who is passing the winter in Whitealde County, Ills., writes that the suffering to man and beast is terrible. He states that cattle have died by pcores from hunger and cold. 15ut little fodder Is to be had." The GA/.KTTE would say .that.the.joan living in our midst who would write that kind of stuff about us Is not only pduce of liars but a vile ingrate. While, like all other regions in our latitude, wo have had some cold weather, there has not been H single case of suffering to man or beast in our county this winter. This county has more "fodder" in it tins year than it has ever had before in its history, ~ Thirty degrees below zero is more bearable In this section than is zero in more southern and eastern latitudes. .There is_a rule among savages, even, to avoid doing Injury to those among whom you live, and breaking of bread at one's table is guarantee of protection; but that Lowville fellow living n our county comes from an awfully nggestive place, for none but a low character would slander the people with whom he Hvea and particularly at the entire cost of truth. A copy of this, paper will go to the Lowville Journal and Republican, that It may learn the character for veracity of the "townsman In Whiteside." .' —The GAZETTE neyer had any patience with the practice of giving bonuses to manufactories to settle in one's midst. The evil of it IB shown now at Aurora, where the watch factory —Every citizen is interested in having laws in relation to the moving t>f trains enforced, for citizens either travel themselves or have friends and relatives who travel. There is a law which requires trains to slow up and stop on approaching a crossing. A few days ago a train that was passing through Sterling and that had been delayed by a wreck, narrowly missed a collision here at Sterling with another train by failing to comply with this law. A railroad train has precious lives on board, and every official on the train should feel the responsibility every minute and hour. There should be no Birch thin& as taking of chances; it is these taking of chances that account for more than half the accidents ou railroads. There should be no such thing as getting careless through years of service, for a single moment of carelessness has caused the wreck of a train and the wreck of the peace of mind forever afterwards of the careless person responsible for the act. provided lie lived through its perils. __— The Salvation Ar.ry, which at one irne so nourished here that it attracted crowds nightly into old Farwell Hall, now lacks a name and a place, in soms localities It is in most flourishing condition, but various causes com bined here to decimate numbers, until linally the Captain found it needful to t>reak up -camp; and Hud some more desirable territory. It may be that he found that Satan no longer had any forces to dislodge, for we are an awfully good people in this portion of the earth's domain. Take Freeport, now; why, the Salvationists find lots of strongholds to charge and are daily gaining strength. —As the weather' grows warmer the greater will be the need for guard- Ing against the tramp nuisance. The way to take care of it is-to put the tramps to work on the streets. i> iaftnlatlon.

It is one of the best dailies outside of Chicago." —A man named Martin Lemer, a German working In Bassett's wagon shop, got his hand in'a planer yesterday, and lost the middle finger of the right hand at the middle joint, analiad the tips of the two adjoining fingers cut off. —Mr. J.

We'll tell you for nothing. It's where there's big stock of latest styles in dress goods and all kinds of dress goods: Best some other city to locate la its midst. If we lived at Aurora we shduld say, "let the watch factory flicker, if it Is <o 'dlspoged'." Just as soon as the several cities of the country get to buying factories to come to them, there will be witnessed the spectacle of their bank ruptlng themselves; for factories that put themselves on the market to the highest bidders will remain on the market. It will be, easy for- them to claim breach of contract on the part of citizens, and will pull up stakes as often as they can get new bids. It may be proper enough to offer power in part, or In entirety, or abate taxes tor three or four years, but out-and-out donations of money are unbusinesslike and the practice can only have originated with factories that felt the need of considerable-boosting." The Aurora w«tch. factory, we have understood, is In good financial shape and has no need of assistance; but if it has got where it is in the market to go to the highest bidder, Aurora had aa well let it go. —Following IB the list of prisoners in the county jail Feb. 23rd 1888, with their sentences, kindly furnished by Sheriff Keefer; Swan Peterson, selling liquor without a license; 200 days in jail.
