Mrs. D. K. Campbell, of Lltchflold, read a stirring paper urging the groat duty of "Fidelity. 11 The Corresponding Secretary, Miss Wallace, read her report, showing the encouragements and disappointments of tho work.and blending variety, raciness and point.

In Metnoriam exercises wore held for Mrs. McNeil, of Alton, Mrs. Lucy Dryer, ot Alton, Mrs. Pernn.and Mrs. Eldred of Oarrollton. "The workers dlo, but tho work goes on." Miss Edwards read a paper on "Child Widows of India". No pen can describe tho horrors of woman's life In India. As a wife shoisaslavo; when hor husband dies sho Is robbed of her ornaments and subjected to ovory i ,' Indignity. To become a, widow Is to be ^ accursed. la India are 21,000,000 , widows; nearly 100,000 under ton years of ago. Miss Edward's papor was very finely written. Mrs. Nulling read tho story ol "A Little Purse." Miss Myra King, a hum- bio member of the Presbyterlal Society, deaf, blind and lame, dlod a little ovor a year ago, leaving a little old fashioned purso containing threo dimes, which she requested be given to tho Society. At East St. Louis a year ago It was decided to pass tho purse around tho Societies for .additions; it has gone the rounds part.way, and the three dimes have grown to nearly $69.00. When tho purse has gone round the Presbytery, Its contents will bo consecrated to ft special purpose. Miss Nichols rooltod a beautiful little poem founded on the Incident of an agod Brahmin who said to tho Missionary, who told him of Jesus: "My hair has grown whlto waiting those tidings." Mrs. C. H. Taylor was appointed delegate tn the mooting of the North Western Board, at Davenport, lo. Tho following resolutions wore adopted: Resolved, 1, That tho ladies of Alton Presbytonal Society return our warmest thanks to the ladios of Alton Preaby. terlau church for their gonorous hospitality and thoughtful kindness und euro for our comfort, tho memory of which will jjo with ua to eur homos to help and ohcur us for tho coming year. Bcaolvcil, 2, That thanks bo given w tho ladios who have taken part m tho exercises, tho sweet singers and to all from slater onurolaes who brought us words of encouragement, and assistance in making those aurvicos so Interesting and prolltablo. Beaolved, 3, That wo, as members of the Presbyional'Socloty, heartily sym- pathise with Mrs. Alary Clomunt Lcavitt in hor arduous labors, as round the world Missionary for tho W. • 0, T. U., and recommend hor work to our representatives la nil lands. After » Question Dux exercise, the Society arijournod. All tho ladies pro- nounoo this one of tho very best meotK ings thoy havo ovor hold. Our Alton people ware delighted with thnir visitors, and when tho Sooloty wauU to oomo bctok, It will bo warmly welcomed o Alton.] Qt,n SBTTLBM — Major Franklin Moore and Mr. Zophoniah Lowo have lately been making a list of the names and postofflco address of all those persons who became residents oi Upper Alton and vicinity, before the "winter of the deep snow," 1831-2, and are still living hereabouts. All who came hero subsequently to the above year tho Major calls "carpet baggers." The list, as It stands, is aa follows: Upper Alton—Zephanlah Lowe, Mrs, E. M. Miller, Mrs. P. Wells, Jesso Wright, Wm. 11, Wright, James H. MoKeynolds, John McRoynolds, M. A. Lowo, R. E. Lowo, W. C. Lowo, D. W. Collett, D. B.

Alton-Thomas Stanlon, L. B. Sidway, Wm. Austin. Fostcrburg—O. P. Foster. Dorsey Station—Jacob Pccuitt, James Preuitt. Bothalto—Wiley Preuitt. MUNICIPAL—There appears to bo a doubt in the minds of some of the outgoing Council whether they should declare tho city organization vote favorable or adverse to the change of municipal government. Tho case is this: The vote on city organization, under tho general law, was 118 for, and 103 against, a majority of the votes cast upon this subject being favorable to the change. But there were fourteen persons who voted for Councilman, or othor candidates, who did not votu on city organization. The question is whether it requires a majority of all tho voters, whether they chooso to vote on tho matter or not, or simply a majority of tho ballots cast upon this proposition to decide the matter at issue. IMPROVEMENTS — Prof. E. Wyman has begun some extensive improvements upon the property opposite his Institute grounds. The intention is to grade the street and tho lots, making a park out of what is now an uneven stretch of land, two blocks in length and about half a block in depth.
