Mllnor's r*li<i«.ticf, the spacious pftrlori twlfig owsttpletl 67- a refined, oultureu audieuoe. . The programme opened witti Gotts* cha'k's arrangement of the overture to William Tell," Rotnini, given by Misses Sophto Hopkins and Bessie Forbes. Tins, said to be the flnt st overture over written, was played in magnificent style, worthy of its excellence, by the joune ladies mentioned. Misses Lizzie and Mamie Biggins, Mins Lucy Begins at the piano, sang Domme Deus," Oioria, In a manner to delight the bearers. Both voice* were fine and blended aaone in harmonious combination. <L Mrs. C. tt. Houland delivered «n able aUdresi treating of the dilHoiHtiof •ncountered in the organization of a allies' musical society, the results icbieved, concluding with some suggps- tl-ms of what might be done by the State and the municipalities to foster he arts, especially muslo. An instrumental quartette consisting of B. H. Wortmann, first violin; W. L. Tarbett, viola; Wm. Oltmann, second violin; Ernst Scbweppe, flute; Dr. C. Robland, .'cello; gave an Allegro and Larghetto, Uoearl, with rare skill and taste. This number wan . a revelation >f what may be accomplished by ama* teurs through application And practice. Mrs. O. B. Stelle sang "Angol'k Serenade," Braga, a selection that dis* ulayed her superb voice to fine advant- ige, the scope of tone and exptession being particularly noticeable. The dano accompaniment was by MiHK viary E. Wade: violin obligate, Mr. U>uU Pates. Miss Wade followed with an "Impromptu, B flat," Schubert, a gem of nstrumentation, a splendid exhibition jf the artistic ability of the pianist. H» lumber on the programme received nigher commendation from those best qualified to Judge. . '•Concert Waltz," Dudley Buck, was ung by Messrs. L. Beiz, Wortma^n, Sobweppe and Tarbett; a most attrac- ive number, the vocallsm, both in execution and expression, being all that ;ould be required. After an intermission of ten minut»s part second was opened with a piano duet, "Symphony in B minor, and Allegro Moderate," Bchubcrt, by Mlssec (iraon and Cora Cole. The artistic xcellence acquired by these young lath artists was abundantly manifest in this cli'sic number. Mrc. M. Milnor delighted the audience with a v«calsolo,'»The Storm," Hullah. which was rendered «ith feeling, grace and expression rarely equaled, Mr. Levi . Yager at the piano. The Schubert quartette, composed of 'he stringed instruments of the quintette mentioned above, gave •'K'iiser,"-(rh'' Austrian Hymn) Haydn, ID a mot lini«bed manner, each instrument, alternately, playing the-theme. A song. "Spring Flowers," Beinteke. was beautifully rendered by Miss Jennie Siem: piano, Mrs. RohUnd; violin obligate-, Prof. Wortmann. Miss Siem sang In the characteristic, manner that his placed her in the front rank of our leading vocalists. Mrs. H. E. Mills gave muslo-lovers a rich treat and added to her reputation as one of our most finished instrumentalists, by a rendition of "Soherio, B fiat minor, Op. 31, Chopin.' It is but rarely that Alton a«dionces. have the privilege of hearing Mrs. J. W. Coppinger m public, hence the the song "Esmeralda," SponMli, which she rendered as s solo, was appreciated accordingly. ; The accompaniment, Misi Lucy Biggins, piano; Prof. Wortmann, violin; Dr. Rohland, 'cello; added to the finish of this fine number. The entertainment closed with "Good Night," Suck, by the D. B. Quartette, t fitting ponoliHion to a most brilliant, enjoyable programme. The Mendelssohn Society aro to be congratulated on the great snocesx achieved at thetr first anniversary reel 1*1. Tbe officers are: ' Musical Director, Miss Jennje Stem; \HKistants, Mrs. O B. St«lle, Mis MnuiiH Biggins; Stwi'tary, Mitts Mary E; Wade; Crilio, Mrs. C. B. Rohland. I'ho Society regrets that all personal friends could not be invited, .(owing to limited seating capacity,) but only the families of members and a few other musical people. Advice to Mothers. Mrs. Winslow'a Soothing Syrup, for children teething, is the presorplion ol one of the best female nurses and physicians in the United Slates, and 1m- been .used for forty years with never- failing success by millions of molhen- for their children. During the proooM. of teething its value is incalculable. It relieves the child from pain, ouron dysentery and diarrhoea, griping in'the bowels, and wind-colic.

A strong argument In favor of the presumption that the Central Missouri will oro»s the Mississippi at Alton, is thi«t at. Louis already fa»* throe direct roads to Kafisaft City. At -tut M ttut trade between those' two cities i* ton- Mrned there Is no need of another road. The new enterprise would simply get a part of the St. -Louui trade and a small percent, of the through business com' ing over the Gould bridge. This would hardly be enough to make the road a paying one. Further, if it entered St. Louis from the west with the expectation of eventually crossing on the pro* poied Merchants' bridge it would have to wail to ir or five years for the com. pletton of that structure. Unless the directors of the Central Missouri have a groat deal of money and a limitless supply of patience they cannot affoid to await the building of the Merchant*' bridge. * Per contra. By bridging the river at Alton the directors .would save time and distance on through bu<lnegg, 'j'h« heavy bridge tolls at St. Louis which the company would have to pay until the Merchants' bridge was built, would btt avoided. Tbe time for (passenger trains from the east to Kansas City, via the Bee Line, would be reduced two hours. Through freight from the east could be delivered in KanJas City more quickly tha'n via St. Louis, under the present facilities for crossing from East St. Louis.- An- itber consideration is, that if the rivei is bridged here the Central Missouri <vould become the short route from New York to Kansas City and would oe the line selected for the fast mail. Farther, crossing the river at Alton loes not cut St. Louis off from (hi- ienefits of the road. Through train- irora Kansas City would run into Si. Louis direct, and the route via Alton would be shorter and quicker than 'hat of the C. & A. between St. Louih md Kansas city. Other considerations favoring Alton as the eastern terminal of the Central Missouri, instead of St. Louis, could be urged but these are sufficient to indicate '.hat there is n» commercial necossin for building the Central Missouri except for the sake of the through business and unless time and distance are lared by crossing at Alton. That was the origi- ml intention, and the scheme was sound ind judicious, worthy of the eagacioui- ind far-seeing projector, Col. Hayward To divert the route from the origin 1 plan would emasculate what was a {rand and promising enterprise, and vould render it scaroaly worthy the consideration of capitalists. ILTOH IMPBOVEMKHT ASSOCIATION. A second meeting of business men fur the purpose of projeeting and discussing plans for the' improvement of •hecity, was held last evening at tin <>ffiu« of McKinney 4s Hewitt, and wa? attended by a large representation of leading business' men and property holders. Mr. Chas. W. Miluer was called to the chair and Mr. Geo. K. Hewitt appointed Secretary. After a general discussion it was decided to organic »' c <mpany, to be known as the "Alloi I uprovement Association," with a capital stock of $25,000 for the purpose 01 •K-veluping the material advantages ol the city, purchasing real estate for manufacturing and residence purpose*, erecting an opera h*ote, building street ratlroadi, etc. Several gentlemen de- <ired to make the capital stock 9100,000 but it was decided to start with 926,000 dad increase the amount if necessary hereafter. The ^corporators nameu were Messrs. C. W. Milnor, H. WaUar, I H. Raible, M. R.Phinney and Wiu. Armstrong. Messrs. George B. Hewitt, J. F. M< • Ulnnis and George F. MoMnlty were appointed a committee to draft a com., mutton and by laws. The meeting adjourned to meat at the call of the Secretary. This movement owes ita inception and Inauguration to the efforts and enterprise of Mr. Geo. K. Hewitt, than whom Alton has no more publio spirit ed and energetic citizen He has fnitb in the future of Alton, and has proved his faith by his works. Tbe other gentlemen, who have enlisted in this enterprise, are of like calibre, and we expect great results from this organic* tion.
