Alonzp'Babcock, who has been in pdor health for 18 months past, died last night* The funeral will be held , Thursday afternoon at two o'clock at tho bouse on North Eagle street. A special train on the Michigan Cen tral railroad, carrying a daughter of the late division superintendent C. B. BuXh tp the funeral of her father, made the distance between Nilea and Jock sou, J10 miles, In just two hours. There will be; a matinee at the fair ground Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock for horsemen and wheelmen. Th»re will be five Dicycle races and a number «>f t.rpttinjtraces.

If they cut the fare in two they will have'to carry twice us many people to make as much as they do now, besides being to the ex pense of extra trains.

The request wasjjdt heeded and the clerk lifted him to bis feet and told him to walk. He staggered, to the edge of the side walk and got down quite limberly. Soon he tipped dver and lay on his back on the side walk. The hose wap brought out and the water turned on, the stream striking the squatter square in the. face with considerable ; force. He stood it .for some time and then slowly moved off on aH fours, going around the cor ner out of the reach of the water. He will probably pot visit that locality again when he wishes to take a, nap. There seems to be a growing disposition among the railroad officials, says the Chicago Tribune, to attribate the small world's fair business .to the flutm eial situation and not to the, fact that railroad fares are too high. Many of them profess to believe that no amount o* reduction in passenger fares will, at the present time, result in large crowds ol visitors.
