Miss Elaskoll, on Saturday ovetiingVwelcoined he guests she had invited .to attend .ho concert of the Boston Quintette 'Inb, and then passed to the bedside of her father, where she remained until all was over. So near together n life's stream.flow laughter and tears —joy-and sorrow. So soon does the hand clasp of sympathy follow the greeting of hospitality. Mr. Haskell was a native of Massachusetts but for many years a distinguished citizen of Maine. He was a banker and ship owner,a man of wealth and prominence in the commercial world. He was also a leading politician and had been a member of the Maine State Senate. His religious connection was with the Congregational church, n which denomination ho was eminent or philanthropy and benevolence. Since the death of his wife he has made us home at Monticello, whore the tender care and devotion of his daughter smoothed the pathway of his declining years.

The End of the Same. There has been a rumor current in the city for several days that the only true and genuine "sea serpent" was on its way up the river and believers in the reptile have, in consequence, been on the lookout fonts appearance. A report was afloat yesterday that the serpent had been seen early in the raornine plowing its way up the stream with its head high in the air and snorting; like the 'soape pipe of a large steamer. A re-lie-able gentleman informed us today that the scaly monster was, headed ofl at the mouth of Piasa crook, not far above where the'Piasa Bird, met with a merited fate many moons ago, and was dispatched with clubs by three or four residents of that section. It was 168 feet in length and was as big around as the hogshead—from which the narrators ol the story procured their whisky, Society Contest,—The third annual contest between the Alpha Zota and tho Bigma Phi Societies of S.hurtleff College will take place at College ' Hall, Upper Alton, Friday eve., April 29.

LilMG A COKNER STONE. V In spite of threatening appearance of the wepther and occasional showers of rain, there was an immense a«sem» llage yesterday afternoon < to witness be ceremonies attending the laying of ihf) earner atone of the new St. Joseph's Hospital. About d:80 o'clock Mayor M'Piko, and the most of tho City Council, arrived on the grounds which are ocatod at the south west corner of Fourth a&d Walnut streets,just south of St, Patrick's church. The members of iho Western Gathohe Union, preceded by a standard bearer 'carrying their elegant blue satin banner, reached /the place at 1 o'alook. In a short time afterwards tho Catholic clergy reached the platform, on which wree seated the Mayor, City Council, Vicar. General Jannsen, Rev Fathers Peters, Zwelssler, Howard and Rev Father Neuthart, of St. Louis, speaker of the occasion. The orator of the day announced that the ceremonies would consist] of three short acts; the sermon, the collection, laying the corner stone with the blessing and consecration of the edifice and the grounds. The reverend gentleman commenced by quoting Matthew 25-40. "Inasmuch as yo have done it unto the least of those my brethren, ye have done it unto me." He remarked that hospitals are types of a high order of civilization, founded on the teachings of Christ, and are not known among heathen nations. 'The first, movement of the kind is spoken o( in the Oih chapter of Acts. The speaker paid an eloquent tribute to,Alton and said that this . beautiful city always reminded him of Rome and Bethlehem. He spoke of the religious advancement in this diocese since the consecration of bishop Juncker, 80 years ago tomorrow, April 2Cth. The speaker in closing paid a well deserved tribute to the Sisters of Charily for their self sacrificing devotion to their Christian work. At the termination of the address, which was well conceived and well delivered, couched in fine language and very interesting, ihe ceremony of laying the corner stone took place. The stoae basement and brick work of the first story are alulOst completed, but a space had been left above the stone at ; the northeast corner of . the edifice where a metalic box was placed by Vicar General Jannsen and sealed by Mr. J. B. KJrwiu. The cere monies were concluded with chanting, a processional march around the building and the consecration of the place. The hospital when complete will con sist of a stone basement and two and a half, practically three, stories of brick. The dimensions are 110 feet 10 inches long, 48 feet wide. The edifice will cost from $16,000 to $20,000 and will contain 500,000 brick' which are' being manufactured near the spot. The site is a commanding one, embracing a magnificent view of the Mississippi river.and the plains, hills and forests lying eastward and south of the city.

"I have just come from Washington," continued Mr. Towu- seiul, "but recently I spent four or or five weeks in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado. They arc building railroads out there in every direction. Real estate in Kansas City, Denver, Omaha and such cities is way up, They tell me that this section of the west has never had 'such a boom before. There is a now railroad projected across Missouri from St. Louis to Kansas City, with a bridge lit Alton, which will form au outlet for the Bee Line. Tho road has boon talked of for a good many years. Mr. Dovoreux used to talk to ino about it when ho was alive.
