Engraved upon the beautiful water pitchers In the seta are the words, following the names of the persons to whom they are to be presented. **From Northern Illinois District Fain Dixon, lUlnois, 18T9." The fortunate parties to whom this silverware wiU be presented are: Mra WiUiam Stewart, of of the Bellevue Farm, Ogle County; Abl Jah Powers, Palmyra; Samuel Dysart Plnea Farm; and Thomas Smith, Ogle County. It Is a very worthy compliment to our celebrated stock ralaers. In Ol —That gold hi-aded cane which Is to be voted to the most popular citizen on the seventeenth inst., at Union Hall, where the Catholic Fair will be ia progress, no smi.ll afiair. It is, in fact, a «-plendid staff on which a Credit-mobilier Con gressman might be proud to lean. It wil c «St about Sf venty-five dullars, and each citizen can cast a vote fur his choice It« prest ntatlon, for the small sum twenty-five cents. Any individual can duplicatehlsor hervote to the number of five for one dollar. Ia order to make the voting more Democratic-Republican in its nature the managers have conclud ed to open the ballots for all our citizens, outside of that church, to come in as candidates. It will be a sort of "sweep stakes' aflfair—free to all entries. May the best man win. —The law students of the Dixon Debating Society will have the following question "before the house'' at their next meeting. It is one of those peculiar cases that olten come before the Courts where there are no precedents, on which to buse a discission, and therefore muttt be worked out by sheer brain power and no dependence placed ^upon the '«gathered wisdom of a thousand years." Here is the proposition: ''Suppose a man owns a akiff; ha Iks-tens.the skiff to the shore with a rope made of straw; along cornea a cow; cow gets Into the boat; turns around and eats the rope; the skiff, thus let loose, with the cow on board, starts down stream, and on lu passage is upseU the cow is drowned. Now, has the man that owns the cow got to pay for the boat, or the man that owns the boat got to pay for the oow." -In this paper to-dav will be found the most interesting proceedings oif all which came before the Credit Mobilier investigation committee. It is where Congiess* man Kelly, of Philadelphia, and Vice-President Colfax, examined the briber Cakes Ames, an to their having s tares of stock. It is said that Mr. Colfax will be able to show how he came to deposit, at the bank where he kept his money, the twelve hundred dollars (the amount for which Ames says he gave a check) which was placed In the bank the day following that Credit Mobilier transaction. We do hope that our Vice President will dear this matter to the satistaction of his friendi!, for the thing looks a little against him on account of this droumstantlal evidence. As between Cakes Ames and Mr. Colfiix the people will not be Ikble to take the word of the former as against the latter. We are satisfied that Mr. Colfax will come out all light in the end. Bat If he does not, why then he must go with others in this bad business. -In our last week's issue We unintentionally Insulted the entire medical profession of the "Simon pare," old fiuhloned gathered-wisdom-of-lwo-thausand year's sort, in stating that Doctor Leffingwel had departed fTom Sterling with his saws and his quinine. Mow there comes Doctor to our office, who boasts that he is a follower of £M:ulaplus, and says that the said Leffingweil was not a doctor as finiteslmal doses of pulverized sugar, and therefore does not, as we stated, "use vile drugs" as one of the profession under-atanda it. Well, we never object—and lu fact—we take pride In rendering an apology; and we do now most humbly beg paraon of the medical profesdon, for calling one Ltffingwell, late of Sterling, a doctor; and next week we will endeavor to render such apology to the homeopath-ists as may be neceasarv. mifoBiAb HBwi vmok nc.

State Agent ot the Home of Columbus Insur-Company, took a inp over the Chicago A Pittsburg railroad and, in order to ride with comfort, purchased a sleeping car ticket and was directed to his section, by the porter. He had hardly got comfortably fixed In slippers when along came Mr. Conductor. Mr. Reed felt in his vest pockets; then In his coat pockets; then looked through his pocket book; and. In short, went through with that operation six or eight times, and then looked the fioor over and came to the conclusion he bad lost the ticket. Conductor stood there In all his glory. He was monarch of all he had charge and that was, Just then, Mr. Reed. He must have one dollar and fifty cents or the ticket to that particular stateroom which Mr. Reed occupied, or "leave the car." The train had not yet started and so the unfortunate pas senger had time to go back to the ticket f)ffice for a duplicate permit to ride. The ticket agent gave him a note to the con ductor, about as follows: **Thls Is the gentleman who purchased section 4, of sleeping car No.—for CrestMne, this eve mng." This should have been sufficient for any conductor but he of the sleeping i-ar demanded the original ticket or the money. The result was that Mr. Reed permitted bimselj to be put out of the car; and now a very interetting hiw suit will be the result, unless Pullman's Sleep ing Car Company **onme down" nicely Mr. Reed sent a notice of his intention to proceed legally, through the urbanity of Judge Eustace of this dty, whtch notloe was brounht to thif city, on Monday the same conductor, though very much humbled In disposition and very anxious for a settlement ot the matter. The conductor (we should have stated) found Mr Reed's Ucket in the car the morning alter it was lost and returned it. The Courts are now geUtng in a very sensible way ot punishing selfish corporations for any outrages committed upon travelers whom they get In their pnwer. Pullman A Co., will find that Mr. Reed did not buy a little card, but that he purchased a ride in a certain birth, on a certain night to a particular Dlace and he pave the conductor sufilcient evidence of that fact in the note from the ticket agent. tw - -Mr. B. aStileifottad a leltow loaftar aroaad hla bara aad hag pea kite the other night, and aaUdngthat tht yard gate wat open and a hog out, he dreef ntar to tha ttraattr a^ atked **whu'a bere 1" hot initmul of the ntctssary Information, the aldnliht loaler toòk to his heels and Mr. ^tllei**foUowed last anrf hiHowed fkater until an uomerdfol dlsaa-ter" In shape of a dltth ctused h(m to fall and then the auranifer, disappeared down the river bauk.
