Angered and nettled at losing the city printing it makes a venomous and uncalled for attack 'on Alderman Hewitt, whom It seems to think chiefly responsible for preventing it from having its own way with this administration as it did with the last. We haven't seen Mr. Hewitt since the article appeared, and don't suppose he wants any reply made t» it,as his action in the printing matter needs no defense, and we shall make none. His reputation and standing are so high in this community that any attack upon him from such a source simply brands the assailant as a wilful slanderer The climax of absurdity is reached when the Democrat says; We congratulate the people of Alton, and the people of the Sixth ward, thst Mr. Hewitt holds for the short term, and Mr. Fries for the long term. Yes, the people want to bejcongratui lated(P) on that fact. They are wildly exultant and elated over it. No class, in fact, is so delighted over it as the active, sanguine business men who have taken up the work of pushing Alton to the front. *We are surprised, however, that even the Democrat's runlioe betrayed it into the admission that it does not want a citizen in the council so unselfishly devoted to the prosperity of Alton as is Mr Hewitr. ^ All goods now in demand are plenty, at the Globe Bazar.

As the pro* gramme announced the selections given were choice and attractive and those who had the executive duties to perform were among the most able of our amateurs assisted by Mrs. Cunningham, oj St. Louis. The first number of the programme, an organ solo. Communion in G, Batiste, was skillfully rendered by Mr. Levi D. Yager. His ability in managing the stops and the excellent pedal movement wore specially noticeable. The two songs tbat followed, Her Picture, and the Daily Question, by Schubert, were sung with pure and sweet intonation by Miss Topping. 'The young lady posesses che art celare artem to a marked degree, which, with the sweetness of her voice, render her selections attractive. Violin Elegle with Spohr's introduction, H. W. JBtnst, by Mr. :\Vorttnann, with piano accompaniment 'played by Miss Cora Cole, was an enjoyable and musicianly selection. Both performers are proficient with their res apeotive instruments aud ^possess a technique that is highly developed. This was noticeable;also in the third number of part second, Le Beve, by Golterman, m three movements, that they played together. Tbe Cavatma, Bel Raggio, from Semiramide, Rossini, by Mrs. Cunningham, with molodi* theme and elaborate cadenza, displayed thehinusual compass and power of her voice with a grasp of the artistic possibilities ot the composition and an ease of execution that are seldom board in amateurs These tine effects of vocalizing held the audience spell bound as the immediate and enthusiastic encore attested. Tho encore A Lullaby, was no less attractive with its fine shading and tender intonation than the preceding number, though of a different stylo. Waltz Caprice, Rubenstein, one of tho Kussian composer's characteristic compositions, beyond the technical powers of ordinary performers, was givon by Mrs. H. E. Mills in her usually skillful manner. The Aria in St. Paul, Mendelssohn, sung by Mr. W. L. Tarbet, was a selection that Is difficult by virtue of its rigid adherence to tbe classical form of composition. In it Mr. Tarbet displayed to advantage ttto depth and power of basso singing. In the Angelic Salutation, one of Gounod's recent compositions tbat was introduced in concert by Mrs. Cunningham during the past season in St. Louis, her powers as a vocalist were again shown, though in a different manlier, tho sustained intonation being a diflU cult stylo of execution. Mr. Wortman's obligate was unusually fine. Tho encore, Angel's Serenade, Braga, a descriptive song,was beautifully sung, Mr. Worlman again playing tho obliga* to. MlBsWade.m this and the preceding accompaniments to Miss Topping and Mrs. Cunningham's Boleolions,exhibited rare powers in this art. Her smooth and unbroken phrasing with tho sweet and sympathetic cuntubllo are notiooa- ble and pleasing to tho cultivated ear. Tho piano duott, Overture, Fetor A VILLAGE—The election Tuesday upon tho question of organization as a village under tho general law called out a very small vote. It seemed to bo not that there was so much Indifference in the matter but that tho confidence in tho favorable result was so strong that many voters did not think it necessary to turnout. Tho total vote was 82, of which 71 favored, and 11 opposed the change. With a now code of ordinances conformable to existing statutes, we shall feel more confidence m tbo ability of tho munolpal government to enforce their laws. While tho powers of tho Council are somewhat broadened bv tho change, the expense of the new form of government will not bo materially Increased. COLLEQB"NOTBS—Tho exomlnatlonsjatten' dant upon tho close of tho year are in progress. Universal satisfaction Is expressed at the results of the year's work.

The Shurtleff boys were muchjdlsappolnted and not a little disgusted at the failure of the Blackburn University base ball nine, to materialize according to agreement, on Saturday last, |to play the return game of ball. They had made all preparations, even to advertising the game by dodgers distributed that morning and only learned at 11 p'oleck that the OarllnvUle club had weakened. The Blackburn boys should have telegraphed their change of plan at the earliest possible hour, Instead of depending upon the mall. They saved another defeat, but at the expense of their reputation.

Shirt For Children Ears and Scalp Covered with EC- zematous Scabs and Sores Cured by Cutioura. M ^ little son, aged eight years, has boon at- fltntflrt with BJezotna of the scalp, and at times a groat portion of tho body, ever since he was Iwo years old. 1* began in his oars, andextendod to bis scalp .whichbecame covered .with scabs and sores, and from which a sticky fluid poured out. causing Intense itching and distress, and leaving his hair innttod and melons. Underneath thosei scabs the skin was raw, like a place of beefsteak. Gradually tho hair oomo out and was do- strovod, until but n small patch was left at the back ot tbo hood. My friends In Poabodv know how my little boy has suffered. At night he would scratch his head until his pillow waii covered with blood. I used to tie his hands behind him, and In many ways tried to prevent his scratching: but It was no use, he would scratch. 1 took him to the hospital and to tho best plivtlolans In Poa- body without success. About thin time, so'ine frlonds, who had boun cured by the Outloura llomouios, prevailed upon mo to try them. 1 begun to u«« them on the 15th of January last. In seven months ovory particle ot tho disease was removed. Not a spot or scab romalus on his scalp to toll tho story of his suffering. Ills hair has returned, and IB thick find strong, and his scalp us swoot and clean as any oblld's In tho world. I cannot say enough to express my gratitude for tills wonderful cure by tho OutToum Iteuio- dies, and wish all similarly alllloted to know that my statement 1«i truei and without exaggeration.
