The people of Upper Alton are sti discussing the startling events o Monday night, and the subject growing instead of decreasing in in terest. Since the publication ,of Mr. Job McFarland's burglar story, two othe persons, Mrs. Orson Hewitt and Mr Bert Stamper come forward wit stories of persons attempting to mak entrance to their houses the sam night. It was thought at the time be only Halloween pranks carried little too far, but since bearing of Mr McFarland's experience, both Mrs Hewitt and Mr. Stamper are of th opinion that their disturbers wer burglars. What started the fire in the Wab residence is also a matter ot muc conjecture. One of Mr. Wahl's sons now state that when he rushed down stair Tuesday morning in search of the fire he found an open window, which wa certainly closed when the family re tired. Mr. Wahl thinks some one must have forced an entrance into tn house, and accidentally or purposely set it afire, as be is entirely unable to account for the accident on any other grounds. People are beginning to suspeci that all the mischief was the work of the same parties. It is said that on Monday two suspicious looking strangers professing to be umbrella menders were in town, and attracted some attention because they were much better dressed and more intelligent looking than the average tinker and suspicion has fallen on them. The whole affair is a nine days wonder in the village and whether it was a Halloween prank carried to the extent of vandalism, o.' whether it was the work of Upper Alton's old burglar friends or the well dressed strangers, is yet an unsettled question. foot Ball at Sportsman's Hark.

Demutb sends the TELEGRAPH the following note. The family of which she speaks is a wortny one. The State has taken the father of the family, and has left the mother and children without support. Mrs. Demuthsays: "Mrs. Gracey, living on William street is deserving of all the help that charitable people can give her. She has three small children one of them a babe; and all are sick. Her husband is away and she is unable to work for the support of the children and herself. As she is in very destitute circumstances any help that may be given her will be gratefully received."
