In the old K.M- loon days when free lunch was equal to a young meal for tho sum of five cents for glass ot beer, each and every hitching post was used by Harm«ra salesmen and others with business in the town.

Lale In tho evening, delicious Editor of Alton Evening Telegraph: As General Chairman of the Centennial Building Campaign for Shurt- left College, I should like to call attention to one feature of the effort that Is a source ot concern. I do not know of nny campaign where there has been such general commendation for tho record made by those in charge of the institution as in this one.* Everybody with whom I ha,ve talked speaks favorably and enthusiastically of the record made by Mr. Potter as president ot Shurtleff College. I think that everybody with whom he has come In contact is his friend. We hnve had a most difficult time in getting people to help In tho campaign. I know that everyone Is busy but on the other hand Shurtleff is of Inestimable value to Alton and this district. It is difficult to Imagine Al ton without Shurtleft. It is one of the things In which every citizen takes pride. Our campaign to raJae $260,000.00 formally begins Friday evening. We need more helpers. No one will ba asked to do an unusual amount of work, but there should be more people to assist in the campaign. J hope there will be others who will volunteer to assist. It they will telephone to No. 403 or 404 we shall tell them in just what way they can help. It has been Impossible for all the captains to see everybody who might be available and certainly a willing worker is most desirable. I thank you for giving space to this appeal and hope that more citizens of Alton will volunteer their services. Sincerely, HAROLD G. POWELL. The members of the C. I. C. class, of the Grace M.

Berger Graves Is confined to Forsythia Has Turn This Year There are 212,000 plants of various kinds, most all of them having some kind of a bloom, but just now one of them stands out from alt the rest and It Is Forsythia. This pretty yellow bloomer gets Its name from TV. A. Forsythe, nn English botanist, who like our own Asa Gray was a student of flowers n plants. For the last five years the seasons have been so cold In latter March and the nights BO cold that Forsythia lias not bloomed. Many people had tho decorative bushes in their yards and because It did not bloom did not know that ,it was a bloomer. But this year it seems to have hit It just right and every bush of Forsythia Is now In- full bloom, blooming right along with the crocus and the daisy. If one will observe they will notice that Alton seems to have a large number ot Forsythia bushes and the yellow picture just now is proof that for the first five years this early bloomer beat the cold nights and the snows apd lea and got Its picture be- foro the public, certainly a beautiful one to tho flower lovers. Falrmount place Is especially beautiful with this bloomer now. Dr. Truex Speaks on "Power" at Revival A large congregation braved the inclement weather last night to hear Dr. Truex at tho First Baptist church speak on the subject of "Power—a New Experience for Believers." Taking MB text from the second chapter of the Acts, ho said In part: "Thosa early believers were men and women of conviction. They believed In the dlety of Christ; they believed In his resurrection. Doubting Thomas was there but the doubt had all been taken from his heart. They believed In the efficacy of bis atoning blood. They believed he was coming to earth again. Watting, believing, praying, they passed those 10 days In the upper room until the promise ot the Holy Spirit was fulfilled In His coming with a sound as of a rushing, mighty wind. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak as the Spirit gave them utterance. He unlocked sealed lips, He liberated Imprisoned energies so that these believers, filled with a, new and wonderful power, weiit forth to spread his gospel to nil tho world." Preceding tho sermon the congregation was led In a 20-minute song service by Rev. Hubert L. Sparks, with Miss Leila Kruze at the piano. The singing »of n. chorus entitled "Everywhere" featured the song service last night. Dr. Trucx announced as his subject for tonight, "A Helpless Cripple at a Beautiful Gate."

The tour of tha New Tork String Quartette has been on» continued series of musical triumphs. Their concert In Chicago was highly commended as was their appearance In the larger cities, Every master composer- has put forth his best efforts in writing for the string quartette, it represents the perfect balance of string tone. Franz Joseph Haydn was the founder of this form, later to be extended by Mozart, and at last reaching Its perfection In Beethoven. Tho program presented by the New York quartette embraced both the classic" and modern composers. Beethoven's Op. IS. No. 1—the two movements showed the composer at the height ot his genius, It Is both dramatic and brilliant. Smctana, the Russian musician seeks to give a, tabloid history of bis llfo In his quartette. The lour move ments depict his early musical Im presslons—his yooth and fondness for tho dance—his romantic life, aw lastly, his love of national melbdle and the approach ot Ms last flay spent In deafness and gloom. Another group of pieces by the Rus slan composer Borodin were charac tcrlstlo of his country's folk song and dances. Gosson's "By the Tarn" Is a. dainty bit of writing, the author being a con ductor who knows how to scoro el festively for the string Instruments. Edward Grclg's Salterello froni the G ij%nor quartette Is a lively gracefu movement, and while It Is Italian in form, It contains much that Is Norwe gian, in that Its rhythms and melodies are distinctly typical? It Is superfluous to comment on or compare the playing of the ind vldual members of tho quartette a their reputations In the musical worlc are firmly established. They gave an evening of some of tho great master works, artistically interpreted. Th encores were an old English sir "Drink to Mo Only with Thine Eyes, —the celebrated "Minuet" by Boc cherlnl and McDowell's "To a Wll Rose." Mrs. C. B. Rohland spoke of tho lif of compositions ot Beethoven the mv slclan, whose one hundredth annlvei sary ot his death has been observed 1 all countries.
