It Don't fail to see our 76o and $1.00 Opera Slippers, at Star Shoe Store; It INTERCOURSE WITH THE COUNTI SEAT. If some capitalists would buy the road ight miles long, from Edwardsville Crossing to Edwardsvillo,and run trains on it so as to accommodate the public, it could be built up into a paying enter prise. This being the most populous part of the county there is necessarily » jroat deal of travel between here and Gdwardsville. But under the present arrangements one must go around by way of East St. Louis to get to Ed wardsville, at all, and then stay there all day, when, probably, all the business that took him there could >e transacted in an hour. Business men don't like to'waste a day in doing an hour's work. The only alternative is to drive over and back, which takes thp reater part of a day and is also cxpou* sive. Now if the trains on the Edwards- ille road could be run so as to connect with the C. & A. trains to and from St. uis in the morning; with the train eaving here for St. Louis at 12:60 >. m. and the train reaching lere from St. Louis at 6 p. m. people ould come here from Edwardsville in he morning and return at 12:50 p.m. or :SO p. m., and our people could go to he county seat either in the morning, at noon or at night. .In this way Ed- wardiville people could spend the half >r the whole day at Alton, and our people could spend either half or the whole day at Edwardsville, as they •leased. The change would be a great lenefit and convenience to the public »nd would quadruple the intercourse letween the two places. Of course the imo card would have to be made to onnect with the C. & A. trains, not ith the I. & tit. L., as no one cares to hauge cars twice between hero and the ounty seat.

They will proeeed with out delay to penetrate tho earth for the black diamonds so much in request those days of modern booms. HALL MUTES. [For tho Tclegraph.l Larry Corcoran will play with tho Hoosier League team. The latest term for a hit by a base on balls is "a phantom bit." ' Put the scythe to woik in tho out Held; weed the diamond. The people want strong ball attractions for July 4th and 5th, in Alton. Robinson, of the Browns, can, it is claimed, throw well with cither hand Put Hhe llutlsous on to the next "strong" St. Louis team that wants to play here.' Mr Louis Klein, a prominent mer* chant of Bethalto, spent the afternoon tn town. For the iirst home run in Indianapo- is Denny won a spring overcoat, a box of cigars, and two new hats. Let us all hope the Unions will play jotter ball than their predecessors. This club was formerly the Peach Pies. And still the Altons are weak, in «pots! Don't you really think BO; you will when they get whipped onoo or ,wice! Dave Fouli is lining out the ball in every game. Ho used to bo a low-ball bitter, but now he takes any kind wilh- n reach of his bat. Weiss is certainly ^developing into a good back stop, say, did you hear hat Smith and Weiss were about to ign with another club? Wonder if us he fine Hibernian hand of Von der Wold reaching out from Wichita P The patronage will fall off at the Alton games, if better clubs are not brought here. What the public wants o see, is good playing by both teams. There was very little "home" comfort n the last game. The enthusiasts who 'ell to bring on the Browns, should hink a little moro. We can take care if Inter state clubs, but when we expect o "rattle" the genuine stuff with our present nine, well—See you later. Warner has won the Iirst game for he Scranton club. The Republican of bat city says: "Warner pitched a very good game throughout. The visiting cam found it difficult to solve his do* ivery, as the base hits show. He was ery steady and cool at the most critical momenta,and only gave one man n base balls. His new catcher, Schnver, gave binvexcellent support behind the >at."
