AllOI DHL! BI W. T. XOBTON, COT. Third M4 P!M» StnwU, Alton, Ul. MONDAY fiVB.. AFKIL S6. N.— A VYMuuiirUm dl«» In the St. Louis SepuMicnn of yesterday rayi: Mr. H. O. Billing! of Alton, It!., who baa been filling the position of chief of the preemption division of the general land office for the put two years, and who was recently appointed register of public lands at Bailey, Idaho, by President Cleveland, was today presented with a ftne (Hirer water service by the clerks of his division. Mr. and Mrs. Billing) will leave here early next week for St. Lonls, where they will visit a week or so with the relatives of Mrs. Billings, when they will proceed to Idaho, where'they expect to permanently locate. They both leave a wide circle of fnends in Washington. Sanitary Conference. Dr. John H. Ranch, Secretary ol the State Board of Health, has issued invi- Utloni to cities and towns «f over 1,000 inhabitants to send delegates to a con* ference of health authorities to be held in Springfield, April 28 and 29, mder the auspices of the State Board of Health. UPPER ALTON. AwnvERSABiES. — The hmt indication of the approaching end of .the college year is the Junior class exhibition, occurring, generally, about six weak* bsfore Commencement day. Both classes beine small Bus fear tbe Juniors and Sophtmorei werejnoluded upon Friday evening's programme. Alter invocation by President Kendrick and a piano solo "La .Consolation'* (Dusiek) by Miia Delia M. Randall, of Alton, orations were debvered as follows: "Hnman Judgment Fallible," D. F. Molntire; "The Old and the New/? (awrtrnde P;. Clinton; "Twofold Progress," R.C. Denison; "Conditions of Ureatness," J. T. Coghill; "Dual Lives," Mattie Kendrick; "Influence of j iCUmata upon Character," J. V. E. Marsh. Mr. Mclntire's oration was perhaps as well written ns any, but he was not sufficiently familiar with it to . 'properly present it. Miss Clinton gave a well prepared renew of Tennyson's two "Lookaley Hail"; poems, a style ol production requiring study, but no exhanitiDg thought. Her manner is pleaaant and her voice good. Mr. Denison writes well and baa a mellow voice that "only . needs Ibta carelosa enuncia- 1 Uon to make him a fine speaker. His restless poise can be over come. Mr. Coghiil speaks earnestly but In what sounds like a false voice. and with too many clippings of his sentences into single clauses. Hit theme, while trite, Is one that cannot be too much dwelt on, till it be proved that there remains no truth m Pope's words that "Honor ftnd fun* from no condition rise; Aol well your part; there all th*. honor ll*i," Miss Kendrick gave a poetic turn to the otherwise practical drift of things by a charming conception of the realms of tho real and the fanciful.; Mias Kendrick can dispense with half her gestures . (to good' effect otherwise she. makes a fine appearance. kr. Marsh discussed climatic influences from scientific 'and historical standpoints and 'established his thnory In the minds of his audience. With a trifle lew angularity.; in his style, Mr. Marsh will make an exceptionally good speaker. Two ..violin, duets and a vocal solo which were «n the programme were, doubtless, prevented by the uncertainty ot the weather rwnUant upon the cessa. tioo of the City Hall weather signals. This Is to be .regretted as Mr., Wortmann and Miss Biggins are both favorites in Upper Alton. 1 BIBLE SOCIETY MEETING. , The Methodist church was crowded last evening, on the occasion ot the annual meeting of Alton and Vicinity Bible Society. The service opened wiib devotional services led by Uev. R. H 5: Manier, .Including an autbem by the 'choir. A brief, enteruininB address was delivered by Rev. Dr. Abbott followed by prayer by Dr.JBulkley. • : Rer. H.

HM- ell, the beloved Principal of the Semi» ary, and who has held that position >r the past twenty year*,was, as usual, 10 honored guest, and the life of the assembly. Indeed, a reunion without er presence would be like the play of Hamlet" with Hamlet left out. An legant luncheon embracing all the elicacios of the season was served tit 2 'clock. Each guest found beside her late a bouquet of cut flowers, nnd tt asty menu card adorned w^th a medal • on head of a lovely woman resting on cluster of lilies, nnd .bearing the incnption: 1877. 188". TENTH ANNUAL BEUNION. of the MONTICELLO SOCIETY OF CHICAGO, TUUMDAT, ArttlL 14, 1887, •- •:. at THE LELAN1), Chicago. In addition to these was a beautiful onvenir, designed expressly for the ccasion, in the shape of a toboggan of ongh cardboard, ornamented witn arrow seafoam ribbons, on which rest- d an exquisite photo grarure of the vy dad tower of Monticello. Beneath was painted in script the name of the gnest and the dates'77—'87. After the luncheon had been thor- uebly discussed, intermingled with much social chat,old time reminiscences nd remembrances ot the absent, the jorapany retired to the parlors where he following programme was carried ut; Opening remarks by the President, Irs.

The Secretary reports an unusual merest taken this year in the doings of be association. She sent out 290 etlers of invitation, to nearly erory ne of which she received a response. Numerous messages of regret were sent, among them a beautiful letter from Mis, "'hilena Fobes, for over twenty five 'ears the revered Principal of Monucel- o. ..'-.-..• 'The Scholarship Fund is steadily growing and has reached §800, tua >resent pupils at Monticello sending a ;heck for $50. It is hoped the desired amount of $1,000 will be secured during ne coming year. Miss Haskell in her, remarks' alluded o the present nourishing condition ot ho school and its bright prospects for ho future. She also paid a tender ribute to the memory of the two launch and .beloved friends of the nstitntiou who have passed inU ;rest 2OO BAGS BIGGINS' FUREKA FINE SALL For Dairy and Table Use, Lu;14 ib. liuen sacks and 50 Ib. sacks, for sale by J.

D., of St. Louis, and Mrs. •'oho Mason, ot Cktdfrey. Dr. Post was for 88 years President of tb« Board of Trustees of the Seminary, and In that capacity bns presented her diploma to every grailuntc of the school during that period. His kindly face and gentle words will never be forgotten nnd his character &s judged. and esteemed by those who knew him can best be given concisely in Miss Haskoll's own words: "As presiding officer of the Board of Trustees of Mouticello Seminary, Dr. Post Was resolute but cautUtis; holding decided opinions, tho result of his clear, swift thinking, but expressing such in the tno« courteous speech. As a man, bis nature was grand, yet simple; stalwart, .yet delicate; heroic yet humble, and he united the brain of a sage with the heart of a child." The Association adopted unanimously the resolutions presented by the trustees on tbe occasion of Dr. Post's death, as the expression of their own appreciation of his uure life, his tender devotion to the interests of the school and his irreparable loss to his family and thu Chri 5 - tian world. "Aunty" Mason, as she was lovingly called,was a mother to every Monticello girl. The matron for 10 years in the early days of the Seminary,nnd married in its parlors, sbe loved even thing connected with it, and its growth and prosperity were tier constant delight and admiratien. Her great hope was to live to celebrate its semicentennial, but this was not to be. Every Monticello eirl will tenderly cast a sprig ol evergreen on the yet fresh mound which covers one of the gentlest, truest and kindliest spirits that earth ever know. The arrangements tor celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of Monticello Seminary, which will occur on the second Wednesday in June, 1888, are being perfected as rapidly as possible. It is intended to be Indeed a jubilee. Every one who has ever been at Monticello as teacher or pupil is cordially invited to attend, the husbands of those who are married being included. Tent! will be erected on the Seminary campus, a caterer provided and everything done to insure a pleasant tluie. • The Chicago ladies will probably charier a Pullman car .and go in a body. It may not be amiss to say here a word in regard to the gifted woman Mrs. Hattie Vose Bates, whose death has been referred to. Shu was tbe wife of Arlo Bates, editor of the Boston Courier, himself a writer of no small repute. Mrs. Bates came from the Hawthorne stock, and her childhood was spent in the old "House of the Seven Gables." Her facility as a writer was something wonderful, and her ideas were expressed in most delightful stylo. She was a contributor to many of the magazines under the nom de plume of Eleanor Putnam, but witi be perhaps best remembered by her "Salem Papers" in the Atlantic Monthly. .Death cut short a life which had but begun to bear fruit of the richest., rarest kind.

We suppose the boom has struck this place. "But entoyment and not sorrow, Is our destined end or way; If you have no money, borrow— Buy n corner lot eacfc day." Mr. Thomas Tltvhenal has fenced In "Fiddlers' Green" thus making a errant improve mcnt In that part of the pleagnre ground. Now fence in bloody coiner and we will be proud. SICK—Mrs. R.V. Jlnktnson is very sick. Dr. Halsey, of ttodfrey, U attending her. Mr. Oharlas Harrison is also quite sick at tbe present writing. We areglad to state that Miss Nellie Thompson who has been ou the sick list is improving in health. Tk« school election last Saturday was not as exciting this spring as It was a year ago, but th« one they would not have last spring was elected by eighteen majority.
