IVK are just a -trifle afral Ipst ps-ople on the oatalde who get tt G»7.iTTE should think that, becans tlicre Is constant urging of Improve menta of divers kinds hpre, CO qucntly Sterling has nptd of these sal improvements. Sueli imprcssio would be erroneous. The GAZETT challenges any city of its size in th Union,— it cares not where, in popu lous SSew England or the less populou west^ in nil things, wealth, moral progress! verieasTin F~Hie~ fuiriisSurane tlmt our city will not suffer by compa i&on. We Invite earnest and carefu attention to what is said in this artlcl as it will give a faithful statement o our condition. .We claim, first, tha our young city la anomalous in ihl that what wealtJi Is horn has been pro duced here. Make a house to hous canvass, and one cannot find a ma who came here with wealth or with competency, even. It was the profit growing out of factories, or inerchai dlae, or the steady annual yield o farms, or legitimate business of bank ing which gave Sterling her^ggregatp wealth of many millions ' Visit on stores and examine their books W state from knowledge that every ma: In mercantile business in our city wh is possessed of capital sulllcient (At)' most of them are) to carry his busiues on is making money. It is likewis true that our bunks are doing a saf and profitable business, having pleat of money to meet the demands of th market. It Is equally correct that ou manufacturers are conducting sat and profitable businesses. And, look ing back, we find steady, successive ad vancement in wealth. Our city ha been free from financial depressioi and business failures which liav marked (ither- cities. We now read the proposition that our city is in sue shape that its future does not lepmir upon any single enterprise to-be, o succession of enterprises to-con.e I'o Its continued growth. The oontlguou funning lauds are, annually, throng] __ increased knowledge and experience,— through improved stock '("cattle, hoine ' and hogs) and through improved ma chlnery, yielding to their owners add ed Incomes, enabling them to npeti more freely and thus contribute t added business for merchants. An "_tbe diversified crops and products o the farms are multiplying the bus! nesses of Sterling, stock deiuandin one class of dealers, grain anothei chickens and eggs another, butter at othur, etc. Already arrangements ur making to have Sterling a horse mar ket and it is promised that there aha be a pork packing establishment here Our splendid roller mills already grin all the wheat of thla valley, and ou rye mills use up great part of the ry • And there Is our splendid, beautlfi Hock river flowing by our town an separating us • from Kock Falls b twelve hundred I'eet, yet spanned by beautiful Iron bridge and the tw places are practically one, as most o the factory owners of Itock Kails llv _____ In. (Sterling.. n8_do_many__Qf__the_pin ployes; and both are In the same Con gressioual township and governed b; the same board of school trustees This river not only affords dralnag' to our lovely, fertile valley, rlche than the Nile valley in times whw Joseph's brethren went thither fo grain, but It likewise yields .power fo our many busy factories, While It Is proposed, and the matter Is far ali.m| ou its way, to Construct another, dam at the head of '.tho r.iplds, some mil above our present dam, we desire to state to any in search for a site for i factory that they will not have to wni for the upper dam to be built in order to dud power, for there are 8,000 inches of yet unsold power; and by repairing . Of the flumes, and the stoppage of the leaks, and the clearing out of the races, the present power 01 the lower dam could be doubled. It being In the ownership of a most wealthy corporation, the same would be done i mined,lately upon demand being made fo? it. There are other projects on foot, wull being bored now In strong expectation of striking natural 'gas and opening up this wealth to our people Sewerage Is under advisement and a iplendid public building is about to bt erected. A street car line is a certainty In the not distant future, while at least two considerable factories will start up in the Spring, und at least two of our e*tiftlng factories will add largely to their present 1 force. Hesides all these, tho .North western railroad will, aa soon us veather per mlta, not only erect an elegant and costly depot bulldliig (an indubitable evidence of its confidence in our continued growth) but will also congregate here a great fqrce of men to lay an additional track between here and liix-helle, some forty miles away, thus glvlug double track from Chicago to Clinton, 1S8 miles. The splendid iirayel pita, three tulles , west of here, will also keep nere through 'the summer, great force of wen to get that out for use on the double track as well as for other polnta along tho line. Sterling 'will likewise be headquarters for the gang of men to be employed by the same road for the construction of the fine new iron double track over the Rock riferat Nelson four mllea. east of here. No, too, the 0. B. & Q, road has purchased an immense amount of steel , rails which will 3'>;>n begin to arrive and will make new bed and lay new i alia and moktj new bridges and cul- v arts from Shabbosia to Denrock and tirtyojwl, the ho*dquart#m for the men bain? Storting; and when that work l» S**rtluf will be on C. B. A j (}. main lino as (well »• Northwester main line. Tho foregoing plain stute mcnt of fact, told without coloring an kii')wn to every reflective man of Ster ling, toarhes beyond peradventuro tha the upper dam project might fail, th gas well might not yield, the street ca llr.e not be b«ilt, and still that (Sterlin is on the high and grand way to pros perity that nothing can stop. I'nder stand, we can pee by prevision,—by th iinmistukeable signs of the times tha great public enterprises, so long and s earnestly advocated are coming to pass but what we insist upon, is, tha though they failed, (we mean, of cours for the prneent,—say a year or too,— because ultimately they are Inevitable even then the coming season will b one of greatly increased activity; w insist that the solid, substantial, pro gressive condition of our business a; fuTrs'dremonstrate fills fo the entire sai isfaction of all who have investigated Sterling has been very close and .dea to us for many years. We have ob served Us history and have written its history for nearly a decade, -and it healthy growth has sometimes startlet us We know men whose fortune have doubled, quadrupled, sextuplec In that time. There are about us a the signs and portents of coming addei fortune. Our climate Is bracing, strong conducive to health and promotive o longevity. No city of America lieatthier; no city of our size contain more old people. Ours is not only hear or hope of things to be, but heart o enjoyment of present fuition. And th buoyant, helpful, strengthening condi tlon of affairs about us, Is absolute as uiirance of tlie coming da>s ofmulti plied advantages and increased addiri] unto of chances for accumulating Nothing can daunt us,—nothing can defeat us. There Is no boasting here The (JA/.KTTE wishes none to settl here from the outside except after in vestigation. We want none to com under misrepresentation,, that they may afterwards regret and mourn thei choice. Our city has no railroad o land rings; we are prosperous and w realize that added population and add ed wealth will add to-our chances fo greatly increasing wealth. We are al here to stay, and we wish those wh onio here to come with eyes and ear open, and to take things as ttiey are We might, as our citizens do well know speuk of other prominent blessing which seem to be sure of realization but we wlah no Bonsatlonalismsrlher is no band of speculators here wit real estate to be boomed and be dis posed of, that present owners may se out and quit. We invite the strange hero, that he may be our neighbor an grow up with us and as he adds to hi fortune through our aid, so his pres enco and cooperation may add to our One thing, though, Is absolute and we' maintain It anywhere and everywhere Let every proposed ent-trprise 'fa through (a contingency absolutely im possible) and even then Sterling is o the high road to constant increase population and constant increase wealth. —In an enrly, perambulation thl morning we encountered, not exactly prince in disguise, but a hero, patrio. scholar,—lu rugs. lie was only a tramp and as he stopped us and begged fo "only twenty-live 'cents to get a squar meal, my stomach having been a stran ger to food for three days past," he add ed that he was down on his luck 'and that If we would but listen to his o'e sad tale, he could start tears to ou. eyes and our hand to our pocket book And what a story he did tell. At 2 lie responded to his country's call, with a gun upon his shoulder. He marchec with Grant to lielmont and was wltl him at Oonelson. He won' a lieuten unt'n commission In the Hornet's 'Nes'i at Shlloh and contracted a cousump tlon before Vlcksburg. Such was his ardor, though, his intensified patriotism, that he refused retirement. Or gaiil/,ed a regiment and figured in the eastern army at the wilderness^ and h: tho subsequent battles where his brav- won plaudits from his superiors lie was at Appomatox. Mustered out he went home, married and settled down to practice of law. Practice in creased, he was sent to the State Sen ate.. Here he paused, and wiped, or essayed to wipe, a tear from his grimy face with his ragged sleeve. This wqs live years ago. In his absence a fiend in human • shape ;empted his loved wife from home (he had no children). He followed the mim uid encountering, killed him. He wa arrested, arid lay for a long time in prison. He was tlrst sentenced lo ten 'ears in the penitentiary, but granted a new trial was acquitted. Two years n prison and lawyers fees left him a muper. Life was a burden. His wife had died while he was In jail; he had no near relatives, "and. and—1 became a vagabond," he said hesitatingly. 'For three years 1 have wandered like' he Wandering Jew restlessly. 1 have braved the rigors of cold, and have uttered from sweltering heat 1 can't >ray. yet daily there go up from my heart earnest longings that each day may be my last." Here he became athetlc indeed, and he is unquestionably a consummate actor, if he did ot tell the truth. Ilia story as told us s not strange as that of the South Carolina governor who has filled an undred prisons in the past ten years U we left him, he resumed bis journey] is legs trembling u he walked. —Again would we repeat our appeal or help for the Mt. Vernon sufferers. Kher cities are responding generously o the call for help, and our pride in terling makes ua especially anxious mt it should maintain its reputation or geueroalty. Our people are gener- us; they only need to be assured of the merit of an appeal and they rotnptly respond. This is a most leritoriom cjue. L«t via have your uhMriptiona in any amount and we rill forward them promptly to their e»Un*tioa. . < — Matters aro» vf-ry qniPt, induce around town. The police dockets are all empty. A couple of tramps cam along and got lodging in juil and thi morning were sent on their way. Thi for twenty is all in the way of arrests four hours. — Freeport is doing hersMf proud! regard to the Mt. Vernon sufferers The .Journal of yesterday says it is ex pected to raise a thousand dollars. W should be pleased to see our citizen take liold of the matter and raise som snm in order to testtfly sympathy exhibit charity. —Judge Grinnell said to a friend tha he should adjourn court for the term some time next week, but that he coul not now tell precisely what time would be; that it was not likely to las through the week. No r.ases of impo tatica remain-- on the docket -for- thi term. — The Hennepln people are not at a confident of getting any big appropria lion; indeed, as we understand, the will not ask for it. What they will tr to do is to get 8500,000. Our frien General Henderson, while we don't lik the Hennepln deal, certainly has stuc: earnestly by the Hennepin folks, yea by year laboring to secure an approprii tion. —Ice is good in its place; hut it i sometimes averse to being disturbed,— is stubborn, as it were, as a good-na tured merchant fopnd it this morning He first stepped upon a sheet of it an then sat d wn upon it— real hard, too He talked to It when he picked himsel up by help of a friend and told it, i had no business there; and still it de dined to move. —The postofllce patron reglste shows constant accessions of populn tion. September i, .last, a eomplet house to house canvass was made, ani everpbody recorded. Since that tlm. there has been constant growth In pop ulation, not a day passing but one o more new names have been added, an oftentimes a goodly number of name in a single day. As but very fev? hav left and as very many have been add ed this is proof irrefutable that ou dty is growing in population. CONDENSED NEWS.

The people profess ft kind of Christianity almost identical with that of the Kopts unil Syrians, nnd very similar to that ol the Greek mid Russian orthodox rites. They are Monophysltea, who recognize bul one nature In Christ. The head of the Abyaslnlnti church bears the title "Abouna," or "Our Father,"'und takes runk as a patriarch of the orthodox Greek church. He U always consecrated Alexandria, In Ejrypt, by the (senior patriarchs of the Coptic church In that country. The whole country swarms with priests, monks and nuns, whose religion consists In the performance of utterly unintelligible and monstrous cere- Monies. Altogether, the Abyssinian church Is the most utterly debased form of Christianity, just as the habits and customs of the people denote tho reuinunts of i most debased form of. civilization.
