He presented the appearance of a nomad to the officials, —Yesterday morning the thermometer registered zero at 7 oolock, and this rooming at the same hour it showed 10 degrees below zero.

The accident happened near,the Keystone shops in Book FalW. The little sufferer is doing as nicely as could be expected. —A believer in the ground hog theory, living but : a mile or two out from Sterling, made a wager ten days ago ,tha^ he would have hla garden plowed and seed in by the 1st day of March. The wager la sufficiently large to cause him to regard the thermometer anxiously. He'll have to be lively and use dynamite blasts in lieu of plow and hoe, if he would win hia money. —We are informed that the Chicago train of the C. B. & Q. will continue to take the mail, but mail only, until the Jurlington can provide an engineer willing to run the regular train. The lock Island train left on time this uf- eraoon, as usual, Conductor Horn aot- ng engineer. This train will make its egular trips despite the strike, taking mssengers, mall, express, etc. fne Aurora Beacon says that Stering has asked for ao appropriation of J100.000 for a government building and ihat'lt has sent a delegation on to Washington to urge Congress to pass auchablll. It adds the rather lugubrious information that one hundred and sixty other town* In the country are asking for one, too. Sterling IB the moat modeat city in America. Ttila is th« at*t thing it has ever asked of gov- ernmsat, and on tbe principle of fair j>l»», atc^ ours ooghl to be oa* of tu« tote**! eltiwi la «d« —The Uf-rman Lutheran church draped in black on the pulpit and around the altar yesterday morning; on the aftar hanging a black cloth, with the motto, "Christ diea for us," which was in white siik and tinsel. —The Company (Around the World in Kighty Days) had gravn feara as to ability t < get up here to-day, from Rocl< Island; fortunately, though, Conductoi Horn is familiar with the workings'ol the iron horse, and he mounted it and brought them here in safety. —Yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock the ice on the north side of thu river broke from the dam and after running six rods lodged, forming a par tial gorge and causing a rise of watei below the dam to a degree that ii necessitated a stoppage of the Sterling Roller Mill today, it demanding a veo considerable amount of power. The other, factories are running.. Those upon the other side are not affected by it. It is not thought that there is anything serious in the matter, and Mr Church thinks the delay is but for a day or two. —The eastern bound train, at 1:40 ibis afternoon, brought to Sterling the mortal remains of Mrs. Col. W. C. Robinson,, accompanied by her brother, Rev. R. Wilson and wife, both of Fairfield, Iowa, where Mrs. Robinson died. Many of the friends of the deceased were at the depot awaiting their coming, and accompanied the body to the Sterling cemetery, where with brief but touching Words from Rev. N. H. G. Fife, it was placed by the side of her greatly loved husband. Mrs. Robinson leaves one child, a. boy of tender years. Mrs. Robinson had been greatly alllicted. She saw her husband gradually fall day by day, assailed us he was was by that insidious foe, consumption, knowing that the end must be death; but^tqo soon. VSince his death sh« was never really well, and at la t WHS stricken by a fatal malady. But her afflictions she bore with tnat resignation which alone can be found in those who have faith in Him who is king ever death and the grave. Sidf by side, her mortal remains and those of her loved'and devoted husband now lie,—their spirits united, where pain and death never come. —This morning &t 4 o'clock the engineers aud firemen of the great Chi cago, Burlington & Qulncy system went out on a strike. Our generwl news contains account-of-tho troubli- between the men and the road; hence we refer here but to the local troubles;. We would say, first, that all freights are abandoned. Early this morniuy Doc. Boynton went to his train in Rock Falls and sought to persuade his engineer, Cornelius Hurley and his (ire man, Dan Daley, both residents ofjllock Falls to make their regular trip; bui, no, b'ir; they were bound by the rules governing their respective organizn tious. Doc. admonished them of th< danger of delaying United States mail? Postmaster McCune was called up. He talked with the two.employes about the importance of the mall servicerami the dignity and greatness of Unclt Sam, aud fiually prevailed upon them to take their train out. It made rea.i) and started on its trip about 8 oclocfc; but the engineer refused positively ,tn go with the train, unless everything ex cept the mall -car was taken off. So there was not a single passenger, nor « pound of express, or freight of an) kind taken. There were the engine and the mall car only taken. —Steps have been taken for the or ganizatlon of a Soldiers Monument at* soclation here, and as soon as plans are perfected, the GAZETTE will refer ti the matter at greater length. For aev eral years past this paper has urged ti memorial of this kind as a worthy trio ute to the brave soldiers who now lie ii. the cemeteries here; and 88 a proof ol the gratitude of our people.' Nevei have we taken a trip to Freeport arid viewed the handsome monument then .without upon our return speakiu,, of It, and urge that what Stepl - enson county has done for its soldier?, Sterling also should do for its soldier* Rome today is filled with reminders ol the deeds of Its great soldiers of tweu ty centuries ago; but Trajan's Columi. the Arch of Titus and all the other* are in honor of the kings and grea' "generals; what is purposed to be rearei here is in honor of thuse who did theli duty most faithfully, who gave ui home with Ita comforts to die if needh be for the sacred cause of liberty; mei> who did not command armies or n - oeive, individually plaudits and fann , yet who nevertheless were aa faithful to trust as any of earth's known heroes. D—Mrs. Anna Kornhaus Nice, wife ol Mr. Philip Nice, a merchant of our city, died yesterday afternoon at three o'clock, after an illness which dates back about three weeks. The distress of this sad. bereavement to the surviv ing husband Is udded to in the fact that she leaves an. infant child, but three weeks old, besides five older children, all of whom are yet ao young as to need the care and attention which only a mother can bestow. Mrs. Nic- was a most exemplary Christian lad> (a member of the Menuonite church) a faiihful wife most happily wedded, a fond and devoted mother. All tboso acquainted with the deceased were attached to ber by her genuine worth, and they sympathize deeply with the stricken husband and children in their great aorrow.
