It EXCURSION—rThe pupils of Upper Alton schools, under direction of 8u» perintendent Powell and the teachers, went to Urafton today, on the Hudson, on their annual excursion. IT geeins that the officers who notified the railroad company m regard to placing thn flagmen at certain crossings and respecting the speed ot the trains through the city limits exceeded their authority. The resolutions introduced were referred to the Railroad committee for report and that committee, so Aldermen Armstrong and Roper inform us, have had no meeting and issued no orders. It seems that Mr. Klble's resolution had special reference to the rate of speed between the Union depot and Ninth street, especially the ballast tram m the evening. There is no disposition on the part of the Coun cil to antagonize the railroad, and the trainmen, per conlra, should not attempt •; to make the ordinance odious by crawling through town at the rate of two miles an hour, when six Is permitted. An easy solution of the matter is, we think, that practiced at crossings in eastern towns where the watchman, on the approach of a train, lets down a long pole across the street by means of a mechanical appliance, thus barring access to the track and permitting trains to run through the streets, at any. speed, with perfect safety to the public. This (plan IB almost universal in the eastern and middle States, and is perfectly practicable. A Fine Programme. Rilly Arlington, the "old timer," gave a first class performance last evening, for the benefit of the G. A. K. local post to a delighted audience. Virgie Bunell, bis wife, Baby Marie, his little daughter, and Frank LeReux, engaged for the occasion, shared the honors by their marvelous performances. Mr. Arlington is especially good in his banjo tact. We commend them very highly to the amusement loving public. —Jacksonville Journal.

A young lady, one of the brighteit and prettiest of this galaxy of pretty girls sends us this poem entitled: QII1LS OP TUB MIDDLE CLASS. There Is a class of Jolly girls Whs goto Lincoln school; They keep tho room In sundry whirls But seldom keep a rule. Miss Ada Wise and Blanche McCluro Are of the studious Jew; Arithmetic they can't endure, And Latin they eschew. Miss Mabel Beers is in this class, Hiss Lucy Gary, too. Such lovely belles we mustn't pass, No, that would never do. May Buekmaster Is Crosar's friend, And stands up for his nation. The Latin scholars hold their breath, At her nerrect translation. Miss Oracle Stolle, with golden hair, Is full of sparkling grace; ' Tell us, which is most sweet or (air, Hor'e, or Mamie Baker's face? Miss Barbour and Miss White come next, They both deserve a mention, Of studying they make no pretext But always pay attention. Hiss Etta Stamps Is raving Over Algebra I hear, Miss Lucy Ash Is saving Most of her strength for next year. The middle class has a motto, 'TIs, "Look back and Improve," And tho' they don't they ought to All try by It to move. A member of the middle class Who did this nonsense write, Is not a very striking lass So I'll keep her cut of sight. And JoaieNlTren.doav, good girl- She studiesOiusar, too; You seldom find nor In a whirl, For she has something else to do. In geometrical Invention Hattle Fhinney doth excel, And things that 1 might mention She doe s them all so well. The highest girl In the class last year, • I mean Kiss Lulu Lehno, Keeps up her standard, and it's clear, An honor she'll obtain. Miss Emma liuehn Is merry—quite, And dwells en State street still; Miss Sadie Phlnnoy, too, Is bright., And Is partial to a mill. Sarah Wilkinson, who has a will 2?!> And always finds a way, Tries all her missing steps to fill— You'll always find her gay. May Armstrong is her father's child- Miss Edith Blair the same; So studious are they, good and mild, They'll rise to lasting fame. Will Close.
