MAN OF all creatures has need for sympathy, creature as he is of weakness, liable to error, and knowing not when In moment of passion he may do that which calls for punishment; yet It. is none the less true that punitory enactments do restraitTcrime and that their non-enforcement does cause an increase. Murders are punishable at the south as at the north, but because of a mistaken sense of honor and the sentiment that he who .redresses a grievance by the taking of life should bare immunity from execution of the law, murders down there are of fre qaent occurrence. They who would hang the highwayman and the burglar, that aro there .,ii:-.!i:.;-'i i't H"!. I-"!-. !<''• '•••I «H ovc;!:! pessimism. As there iwo envious souls in every community, so there are numbers of men (and their number is infinitely in excess of the others) whose sense of fairness nnd whose admiration of ahility enables them to do justice to the object urder consideration; and as the anarlish, envious, unsuccessful handful yawp : and lind fault, the great majority overlook defects and praise the excelling qualities of the man talked about. And BO we repeat; as the thermometer-tells of the weather, so the gauge of man is the amount of interest excited in his community, in his words and deeds. But go not to the handful of snarlers and growlers to determine what the man is, but to the majority, and as their verdict is, so ia the man. FRANK STOCKTON, now 53 years old h«s been a persistent writer for the press and periodicals for more than thirty year*. Scarcely ten years ago, — Born to Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ii'-if and who would execute the assassin, let the redresser-of-a-grievance-murderer go scot free. Murderers have nothing to commend them te public favor, yet there is a wierd, uncanny, inexplicable fascination in the eyes ol many for a manslayer, as Is shown in the attention he receivts in prison, and the zeat with which people read of his sayinxB and doings while Incarcerated and the final scene on the gallows.. One hanging scene is as another; yet every morning paper of the large cities in ita every Saturday Issue has accounts in detail of hanging here and tlwre. which men read as they have read nun- di PtJa and hundreds before This inter- eat begets a kind of sympathy, or pity, which certainly affects the verdicts of juries, and which is altogether wrong. No man can say, "As I am free of blood, so I always shall be free of blood," because while it is true that •harp lawyers have played upon emotional Insanity,'and temporary insauit) and other forms of insanity of a transitory nature and have thus cheated the gallows oftentimes of scoundrels whose release proved a menace to society, at the same time. it Is none the less true that there IB such thing as a sudden, awful, wicked, uncontrollable passion seizing hold ol men and impelling them Irresistibly to ;he crime of man slaying. And st II we say, that ttioughlhil-be-true, JIM_ the example's sake, they who take . human life should receive the sentetid- a .id its execution which the law marks out, that those not Insane for the moment may not put In the same plen, and thus those that are wicked at heart may not like wise kill, knowing they can employ the subterfuge to escape pun Ishment. The most difficult enforcement of law Is that against what tin- termed "boodlers,"—officials of the cities, who by divers dishonest methods rob the city treasuries of money. This is so, because thli class of men is inadr up of what are called good fellows, men of jolly fellowship, hail fellows- well-met, liberal-to-a-fault, ready to •hare the last cent with their acquaintances and friends. --They got ollice because of these qualities, which are of » kind to call out the friendship of all they know, who as soon as criminality IB shown, begin at once to condone their offenses, sayiug-they are not bat', that they are only weak and yielded to temptation. Qratia exempli, saio. the Latins; for the sakti of example let the punishment be made that all may kuow that a man may be companionable and liberal and still prove* knaVe. Society must-protect Itself, If it would reach heights of enlightened morality. Mercy Is a divine attribute and there are extreme cases in which Its exercise would be beneficial; but as a rule, It.t uim who violates law suffer its penalty, If the people would see law respected and society protected. when he was upwards of forty, his articles were sources of great merriment to editors.who rejected them valorously His Rudder Orange struck a popular vein, and his Tiger or the Lady followed. Today he is one of the most popular writers of short romances in America. Jules Verne whose novels are translated as fast es written into every civilized tongue, and who has more readers than any living man, for years persevered in writing without gaining readers. The multitude of writers in this generation, and the millions of books already written make successful authorship the most difficult of all professions. When writers were fewer and subjects had been less exhausted, recognition was not nearly so dilTicult. And, again, hard as it is to gain popularity, even the moat popular writers make scarcely more than a good living. Alany writers known to favor do not make enough to support their families, but are compelled to teach, or follow some other profession, or speculate, In order to make out a support. The lack of an international copyright law. of course, adds to ihe difficulty; LADIES WHO BOARD. GAUGES ABE instruments which di- terralne the standard of anything; thus, a thermometer indicates the heat condition of the air; a uarometer, of the weather condition, while .a pair of scales determines the weight ii ounces and pounds of any body. J usi aa truly as either of these shows what they are designed to determine, just so truly can one declare the strength of character, the activity, energy, eto. ol a given man of any community by the,amount of talk that is excited concerning him. When it la r'o- • memb«red that desire, for notoriety, fame, greatness or any other quality which may bring man to the front, if congenital and that a man cannot possibly overcome this desire, and furthci when it ia considered that man realize he must curve out his own fortune, it will be seen what sacrifice is demanded to praise one who baa already attained unto that which all aim at. ''Jl if," human nature says,, "help by praise to elevate this or that neighbor, I increase the difficulty of getting U> the goal of my desires; for only about B certain number in each comtnuni'j can reach fame anyway." And, tin n, from the frequency with which envy ia condemned in the Bible, it will l>e admitted that that undesirable quality is too of ten found in man; and envy (and Its slater,-jealousy) suggests unfairness in the object of praise and gossip, in reaching his place of prti-r moot. We might point out many i>' h er resaona why the man that Is on t up is talked about, misrepresented, i> ln- undertttood, maligned, slandered, bui.-k- bitten; why combine* are made tod: him off his pedestal; show his moti. es to be selfish, his character to be doi. bt- ful; bow ttdTantage is taken of In* every mistake, fault and blunder; how ooloi i» given to nets of bin which in others would be unuotlced; and ftaaliy, why *» many are interested in black* u- injfhi.n, JJut, enough ha* boon said le show that the man of prornlueucv is in toe way of others who wish «uo lu INI proi»lo«Bt, MKt henc« it U ttu*t gw*8lp wa4 wtde»j>nsmd gemip about an A Ljuicllixly Telia Why They Are Und*- •Irnble H« I.oclcert—Not Iln-Oiti'sRllke. "What is tlio mutter that women who hnve no home IIml It BO dilllcult to obtain wliat passes for one even by p.iylng for Itt What advantage hus a irmu over n woman RS roomer or boarder? I am beginning to find the burden of my woman's ivlnte too heavy to bear. I have hltliertoconsUlered it very enjoyable and honorable, but the experience of the last three days has made hie willing to change places with the veri- est wretch that ever wore tronserH. Now, will you, out of your own experience and observation, solve this mystery, for you do not seem like one to hold au unauthorized opinion?" "Of course," replied the lady, "there are bonnii-rs nnd boarders Just as there are landladies and landladies. For my part I like ladies In the house. Every house Is plcasnnter and should be the better for thjelr presence. But the fact remains that they are more trouble than men. When they are In their rooms all day, where they have a right to be, they are .generally wanting something not In the bond. They—I am talking now of the careless, selfish, or simply incousid- erateones—tiiHlstnpon extra service; they will ring for the girl to corao up three flights of stairs to put a lump of coal on the grate, to open a window or shut it, or to flnd their nightdress. They'll go into the bathroom, even those who have no need to economize, and wash out all sorts of things, laces and handkerchiefs and stockings; this In time fills up the waste pipe with shreds and ravellugs, and the end thereof Is a plumber's bill. They will either ring for a flatlron or else they will come down into the • kitchen with their trailing skirts and attend to the pressing out of their gowns there. They will bother the girl, want a little more tire and an Ironing, board, a little starch • and a holder, and it will frequently end by the, girl offering to do the work for them just to get them put of the way. They want a little thread, or a darning needle, or a teaspoon, or some mustard, or table salt, or camphor. It seems to me there's nothing from a pin to a porous plaster that I have not been asked for by my lady lodgers. "They want frequent changes made In the arrangements of their room. The bed doesn't stuud the right way, the curtains are too thin or too thick, the back of tho rocking chair Is too high or too low. They lose their paps keys and burn the gas to heat curling Irons and pipe stems wherewith to curl their hair. They receive colls, properly enough, but they forget that it requires the time of the .servant to_ answer the bells for these callern. And aa women spend money less freely than men they do not consider that extra service should receive extra pay. If the truth must be told, I find It much easier and more pleasant to transact business—from email matters to greater ones—with a man than with » woman. Women ore not businesslike, and they will pay $20 for a bonnet willingly and haggle over a wash bill. Again, in a house full of lady lodgers or boarders there are occasional strifes and envylnga, jealousies nnd gossipings not pleasant. These are a few of the reasons why women are considered undesirable as lodgers and boarders."—Carlotta Perry In Chicago Tribune. • Doctor* Dying; Out. Accustomed as we are In America to the overcrowding of the professions, as If by a law of nature, It seems scarcely conceivable that in a country like France the numbers of the medical profession are actually diminishing;, notwithstanding the increase of population. In the four years 1883-fl tho number of dlplom.'is annually granted by the medical schools of Francs steadily diminished from 603 to 540, whilo the numlwr of physicians was also an steadily reduced, of course, by retirement and death. The phenomenon ia parti} explained by the circumstances that the falling off Is In tho rural districts, where French thrlftj with penury and "proprle tary medicines," wotfld naturally tend tc starve out the practi'.'oner.—Medical Bccord. Scarcity of Buffalo Rob«*. Much has been written about the terrible loss ot life in the northwest during tho blizzard being due to the scarcity of buffalo robes, which contribute tlr only defense against the rigors of that country. It Is true that a buffalo robe or coat U now beyond the reach of those with (lender purses, and It IB true that for certain purposes the buffalo hide and fur are superior to any others. This leads me to the suggestion that It some of the great cattle kings of the west would give np raising cattle anil go Into buffalo they would flnd it aa Immense!} profitable busiuea*.

Charles Hent, editor of the Morrison Sentinel, was at Sterling this' afternoon and called at the UAZKTTK office. : —Mr. L. M. iiarrett, of Hopkins, was | fined by Justice Alexander this after j noon, one hundred dollars and costs for j furnishing alcoholic drink to Kate Col- ; lins, an habitual drunkard. j —Jacob Decker has been summoned by Marshal Fitzgerald to appear before Justice Alexander March 1, next, to answer to the same Charge upon which he was convicted for violation of State law, viz., selling liquor to a drunkard. —As will be seen elsewhere, in cor- lesdondence between the office; s of the respective organizations, the Wednesday Club will re-present the opera of the Mikado, devoting the entire proceeds to the Sterling Public Library. This opera was presented (in highly creditable manner and called forth high praise) by the Wednesday Club Pleasing so gteatly and the proceeds devoted to so laudable' an ubject, it would seem that a crowded house mus 4 ; greet the entertainment. —There is great suffering at Mt. Vernon. It was not expected or asked that individuals parties should give large sums, but that if persons would deny themselves some single luxury but a day or so, and ; &iv,e one dollar, fifty centa, or twenty five cents, they would thus show sympthy, while the aggregate would be considerable. The GAZETTE would onco more urge this matter up n its readers, asking them either to send themselves or leave at this ofllce any sum however small. We guarantee that whatever is left at our ollice shall reach the sufferers and lie distributed among them. The money when received at Mt. Vernon is faithfully divided among the needy,—every cent of It, those parceling it out charging nothing for their services. —Increasing population, and it is constantly going on, will demand soon increase of room in the school buildings of Sterling and Rock Falls. If a central high school were established the number it would take from the fmir districts would obviate the necessity of building houses in each of them for a time, at least. It will not cost nearly so much to build the one high school, asjt.jfflll to put up four_Btructure_B_ The expense of maintaining theschools wonld be considerably diminished by this arrangement. The children must have school room provided for them; the Wallace (Third ward) has already had to invade Us basement; the Second ward, by adding another edifice in ispn in not crowded just now, but- soon will be, for it has no spare rooma now; the First ward is crowded to its fullest, ah is also the Hock Falls school. So, it is H matter that cannot be long postponed. I f, as is certainly true, it will be cheaper and more beneficial, to have a central high school, and do away with tbe four that now are in existence, why not do that good thing, aud why i ut it off 't —The GAZETTE fallows its practice, n declining to comment upon the rouble between the Q and its employ en. t is a matter which while all the pubic is concerned in it, is yet one which hose outside cannot thoioughly under- land.

Whether the mail cars will cease running remains yet to be seen. The Chicago train pulled out this morning with but the mail coach. The Rock Island train came in this morning an :iour late, and was run by Conductor Horn; Mr. Dempsey, the fireman,being too young to join the Brotherhood, tired the engine. Robert Fraser, conductor of the freight that arrives here at 1 ;30 was conductor. The train had an extra baggage car containing the paraphernalia of tbe Around the World in Eighty Days. There was quite a number of people down to see the train come in. It will leave on time this afternoon. ' • —The one subject of talk around the depot, and a very engrossing aubject of talk all around town Is the C. B. & Q. trouble. Aa ia natural, one hears two. sides, aotne blaming and others sympathizing with the strikers. All aorta of predictions were made as to the duration of the trouble and the manner of Ita adjustment.

Its founders were wise women. They forbade the discus- Stan of religions beliefs and opinions, and the two or three other questions upon which people are prone to get fighting mad. To that wise constitutional provision Is clue the credit of holding the club together for twenty years, In the face of the widespread belief that women are able disintegrators.
