AMOH DAILY TELEGRAPH. i '»« W, *. Cot. Third ana fiat* 8tr«t«U, Alton, til, SATURDAY EVE., FEB. 19. Sherman 1 ! Boom. A Washington dispatch aaya that "the tide seems to be telling in the direction of Sherman ai the Republican candidate for President. Indeed, it is not impossible that it is going too fast that way. These premature "booms" ore liable to over-do themselves, and there ia danger ttyu with the convention more than a year off the Sherman boom is growing too rapidly. The general impression bore is thnt if the convention woru to be held to day, ho would be the party nominee." Lazy Legislative Bodies. The Illinois Legislature has been in session nearly hfty days. Its work should have been half completed by this time, and so far as completed should have been well done. But it has hardly boon begun. All hops of a short, busy and econom ical session has gone 'by. It is too lute for reform, even if the men at work by the day in making laws for the State should desiro to undertake it. The probabilities now are that the session will extend to May unless the State Treasury should give out and be unable to stand n draft for the j pay of members, — Uhicaqo Journal. SOCIETI Miss Fannie Batoman is in Bloom* ington. Mrs. Sid way , ef Godfrey, was with Alton friends the first of the week. Miss Brolaski, of St. Louis, is visit. ing her aunt, Mrs. Chas. Rodemeyer. Mrs. Eldridge, of St. Louis, was visiting her relatives, Col. and Mrs. J.'J. Brenholt during the week. Mrs. Frank Beebe, of St. Louis, is with relatives in the city. Miss Mammle Mullally, of St. Louis, Is visiting Miss Susie Barnett. Miss Ida Stookey,.oi Fairbury.i s the guest of Mrs. Dr. -Lemon, of Upper AN ton. Mrs. Aaron O. Auten went to Springfield early in the week where she will reside for a year. Mrs. Amasa Barry, of. Chicago, is here as the gtlest of her son and daughter-in-law, at the Hotel Madison. Mrs. A. P. Dodge, of Chteago,ia here as the guest of her sister, Miss Johnston. Mrs. H. O. Billings, of Washington, is expected here shortly: she will visit her sister, Mrs. Eugene Field, of Chicago, en route. Mrs. T, B. Spaulding, of Edwardsville, who was visiting Mrs. Boslwictt in Upper Alton, has returned to bur home. « Few things in the way of social pleasure have the charm that a masquerade ball has. This truth was verified by the numbers that attended the Benedicts' party on Thursday evening, both as participants and spectators. To go among a concourse of those whom you know to bo friends, whose idennty it lost to you and wnose familiar feature* are veiled by an impenetrable disguise, is like going into a "world unknown," which with all its unaccustomed novelty is nevertheless unfailing in its interest. To detect those who are so effectually disguised \a,, of course, the first thought of allj and this of course i.- where the amusement begins. It cuU inmates when the unmasking takes place and the mevxn and tnum is established beyond a peradventure. One costume, conspicuous for its beauty. • was that of N;#ht, a sable robe of black lace decked with stars, worn by Miss Emma Floss. Two sailor girls that were so alike in size aud dress, were found to be Misses Jyinie Siem and Carrie Hart. Miss Mamie Fbinney was a welt disguised city belle, and two nuns that went through the mazes ol the dance devoutly, proved to be Misses Kate Bateman and Fanny Hall. Mr. Hompidge as Hamlet was not "sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought," ex- aotly, but he took the part well notwithstanding. Ray Bowman as an la- dmn.was disguised with war paiut. Mrs. Bayle as the first prize- and Miss Emily Topping as progressive euchre had perhaps the most original costumes of the evening. The score cards aud euchre decks liberally used as trimming wore effective.' Misses Ida Yuger, was a Swiss peasant; Grade Stollo, tambonue girl; Mrs. Brenholt, an old lady; Misses Mamie Baker, folly; Julia Adams, a chestnut,' belle aud all; Mattic Hull, topsy ; Irene MoPike, beggar girl ; Jessie Roper, Qipsoy; pink dominoes, Julia Buokmaster, Josio Niven and Lillle'Root. Mr. Henry Phinney was disguised as a travelling man, the only uncertain thing about him being his walk; Mr. Adolph Wuerkor, a clown; Carl Wuorker, a dude; Wesley Sparks, an old colored aunty and Will Sparks his husband created groat merriment, and a long list of others too numerous to give in detail. The play of "School 11 wus givun lust night to & fine audience at the City Hall, T/ho Dfamatis Porsonae is given e dodgers that arc so freely ted that it is not necessary to ;h8 list bore. As it Is the drtt In public of almost every J>> % . 'if the performers in any important \ , • ; ,j[ u ' t f 1 role, criticism would be unfair. It If bowever.but Just to say that the charac ters were well sustained by all those tha had leading roles. Of the young gen tleraen Louis Yager exhibited unusna .dramatic talent in carrying ont hli character, as well a* clearness and do liberate enunciation showing an excel* lent conception of the requirements o the stage. Charlie Hatkinson, also pleased the andlcnce in •this regard. Of the young ladies, Misses Mabel Beers, Mane BuokmasteV and Graoie Stelle, who had the leading roles, us much excellence was shown as is usual in amateur performances. On Wednesday eve. a very delightfu excursion of members of the press am friends of • the officers of the Hudson from St. Louis, went up as far as Oration on the new steamer. The hos pitalitiesof the occasion were dispensec by General Manager II. 0. Fisher and wife,] of ai - Louis, and the genla oflicers of the boat, Mrs. O. B. Stelle, of Alton, was a guest upon thia occa sion. Mrs. G. F. Crowe and Mrs. T. L Foulds entertained their ifrlends with progressive euchre In a delightful man* ner on Thursday afternoon. Seven tables were filled with players, and an elegant supper was served. The first prizes were taken by Mesdames Taylor and Brenholt, lowest by Mrs. Milnor and Mrs. Cary. RIYER NEWS. The river Is about on a stand. The Hudson reached the landing las evening about 8 minutes ahead of the Spread Eagle, thus reversing the situa tion of the previous arrivals. The Jack Frost will arrive from St Louis tomorrow. The Hudson took down over & thoiv sand barrels of flour from Stanard's mill this morning. Coal. Buy your Hard and Soft Coal of H L.

The author of "ADemigod" (Harpe ft Brothers) is certainly possessed of urea Imaginative power, ana unusual tklll in put ting lilg extraordinary characters Into extra ordinary situations, without .doing too grea violence to the probabilities. He baa al«' succeeded in writing a book, the heroine o which Is a Boston girl, without once mention Ing hor glasses, or her superior Intellects, attainments. This anomaly Is not sufficient however, to account for the sudden popular! cy of the story. The hero, rather than the heroine, ij the striking figure. Hecto Vereisa murvelous combination ot bodll strength and beauty with high mental vigor Ue 1 i tha result of an experiment begun lou ur five generations back by one Kenelm Vere who, determined to Improve at least on family of tbe human race, sought a liom >tmong the mountains of Greece, married th most nearly perfect woman he could find,ani brought up his ehUdren|ttltbriheBt»lclestcodi ot menttil and physical health;bnlolninguDon mem tofolow his example and teachings and to transmit tbe aamii obligation to tbel descendants. The result of two centuries o this severe training appears in our hero, a finely proportioned giant, a model of manly beauty, a remarkable man, doing remarka bio deeds. His mountain borne, where ho lives with his mother, is a stronghold, alrnos Impregnable,in which he has gathered abou Him alt the refinements of civilization. He rescues from tbe banditti a party of Ameii cans, takes them to his bouse, shows him i<elf an accomplished host, falls in love wltb the Boston girl, arouses thereby the jealousy and hate of hor cousin, also a wooer, is be trayed by tlie latter Into tbe bauds o( his robber .enemies, is put to torture so terrible that only big splendid physical make-up and bl» will power save him from dying in tbe bands of bis tormentors, Is rescued, and brought back for healing to his sorrowing mother and ills promised bride. While a trifle tedlouH at the htart, tho story grows in Interest, and becomes more and wore absorbing to the end. Bits of true philosophy, suggestive of high' and noble living and thinking, are abundant. The conversation is lively and often witty. Particularly noticeable Is the part in It borne by Major Paul, who, from the time whoa wo find him gazing at the ruins of the Parthenon, and ei claim Ing, "What, in the name of the Young Men's Christian Aisociatlon, was It ever good for jutto look ui?" is always to be recognized by his peculiar explosives. One wondeis whore tbe author made such a collection < I odd expressions us those put Into tho mouth of this eccentric character. (A. 0. McOlurg * Ou.)

X. Ears and Scalp Covered with EC zcinatous Scabs and Sores Cured by Cutlcura. "fJt\ little son, aged etoht years, naa been af AU flictcd with Eczema of ths scalp, and at times a great portion of the body, ever since be was two years old. It began in bis ears and extended to uls sca\p ,wb(oh became cov ored with scabs and Bores, and Irom which a stick; fluid poured out. causing intense Itching and distress, and leaving his hair innttod and lifeless, underneath these scabs the nkln was n.w, like a piece ol beefsteak tirndually tbe hair came out and was do Btroved. until but n smuH patch was left a the back of the heart. My irionds in Peabodx know how niy 11- tin boy has suffered. A night he would scratch his bond until his pll low was covered with blood. I used to tie his hands behind him, and In many ways tried to prevent his scratching; but it wus no use, be would scratch . 1 touk him to the hospital and to the bust physicians in Pea body without success. About tills time sotie frlonOs, who bad been cured by tbe Cnticura Ueraeillo-, prevailed npon mo to try them. 1 began to USH them on tbe Dth o January last. In seven months every parti ole ot the dlseane was removed. Not a BDO or scab remains on his scalp to tell the story of his puttering, tils hair has returned, and is thick and strong, nnd bis gcalp as swee end clean as any child's In the world. I can not say enough to express my gratitude fo this wonderful cure uy tbe Outlcuru Bemo dies, and wish all similarly afflicted to know that my statement is ti ue and without exas geratlon.
