In view of this some of our citizens will tear away their fences atui leave their grounds open. Hence there will be a greater liability to damages by tho owners of stock running at large as there will be nothing to restrain the vagrant animals. IF tho Inter-State Commerce law is earned out according to the original intent it ought to give a boom to western factories. Eastern factories find their main markets m the west, but factories in the Mississippi Valley can find a market in any direction by shipping their products a much less distance than their eastern competitors are obliged to. This matter of favorable location, therefore, under the new law would, if the law is strictly enforced, give the western factories a decided' advantage in the way of freights. For Kent.

The young ladles who have organized a Lawn Tennis Club, in Middle Alton, entertained their friends at the home of tho Misses Armstrong on. Monday evening. The time was delightfully spent in games and social converse by those present. Tho interest in the society dramaj"0nr Boys" grows apace. The rehearsals that occur semi-weekly indicate that this play will be of more than usual interest. Those who have the leading parts in the cast give promise of excelling all former efforts. The milk maids' carnival, under the auspices of W. C. T, U., will be given early in June. Arrangements have been made by Mrs. Brilla Cartwright to train a large chorus of young ladies. Under the management of this .popular and efficient leader this will probably be one of the most attractive features of the entertainment. A very enjoyable party was given by Miss Kittle Pates to her : young friends on Thursday evening.a large number of invitations were issued to which about thirty young people responded. The large parlor was arranged for daneing and other apartments for cards. Tasteful souvenirs and a delicious supper wero features of the occasion. The supper given by the ladies of tho Methodist church • at Root's building, Tuesday evening, was a very successful affair, financially as well as otherwise. The sale of fancy work accompaning it proved very pleasantly that skillful fingers and willing hands had been a work. There was a large attendance, also, notwithstanding the Inclemency of the weather proving that the efforts of those who had the affair in charge were not unappreciated by their friends. A very elegant dinner was given to the ladies ot the High Noon Cooking Club by Mrs. H. G M'Pike, yesterday. The menu of this club always embraces the cheicest viands of the season and this dinner was by no means an exception . The table was beautifully decorated with a profusion of cut flowers, and the entire affair was a most elegant and enjoyable One. Mr. M'Piko presided at the table in his usual urbane manner, in the absence of Mrs. Sprague who is one of the twelve ladies who comprise this very delightful club. The ladies present wore: Mrs. Morrell, Mrs. Mathews, Mrs. McKinuey, Mrs. Job, Mrs. Wade, Mrs. Phinnoy, Mrs. Drummond, Mrs. Gary, Mrs. Daniels and Mrs. Martin. A new stylo of afternoon party that ought to commend itself to our Alton ladies is tho progressive luncheon and quotation party. Ono of this description was given in St. Louts last week. Small tables are laid with covers for four and decorated as the taste of the hostess dictates. There are several conr- 808 served, and with each course a card is handed to every guest upon which is inscribed a familiar quotation from a standard author. Tho guest is requested to assign tho author's name as well as the work from which it is taken and then to sign her own name. At tho end of each course the cards are taken up, and those who name the correct author and work progress to the next table, thus giving as many guesses or exercises of tho memory as there are courses. Prizes are awarded at the conclusion of the entertainment as in progressive euchre. The lady who invented this now and interesting diversion is Mrs. Arthur Mosher, of St. Louis, very bright mid highly educated woman. ' Card or Thanks.
