Mrs. Miller was awakened about midnight by some one moving in her room, and thinking It WAS Mr. Miller sat np in bed and askecl, "Is that you Lon?" For answer a m»n cams to her bedside and thrusting a revolver in her face, commanded her to He down and keep still, which she hastily did. After the burtclar departed, taking a few articles of clothing and a small sum of money, It was found he had entered through a side window and opened the front door. Mr. Miller's trousers and empty pocket book lay on the back porch. About 1 o'clock Mr. Blsland heard some one trying to pick the look on his front door, opened an upper window and fired his revolver. The burglar returned the lire but bent a Imply retreat. At the Waggoner residence he entered the house and helped himself to two overcoats and a pair of pants. Mr. Waggoner heard him prowling about bnt as there was no pistol or a gun in the house, was compelled to He still until the burglar was gone. As soon as he left Mr. Waggoner went for Constable Scovil! who scoured the town with his dog.

Today, for the first time in several weeks, the local dispenser of marriage licenses was busy. He had such a rush ;of business this morning for awhile that his office looked like a crowded fcbarber snop on Saturday night, and the Squire sat in his chair with a broad smile of satisfaction on his face as he called out for the next couple to step up and state their wants. The 11:20 Burlington train brought in three St. Louis couples, none of whom were acquainted. The ttrst couple to ask for a license was Wm. F. Wagener and Miss Lillian W. Slnclare both of St. Louis. The couple admitted_they were eloping and said tney would wire mamma when the ceremony was over. Both were of legal age and they were given a license to be married. They went to the home of |Eev. H. K. Sanborne and were married, leaving at 12:45 to return home and tell their .friends and relatives. The bride oaid she had relatives in Alton but they knew nothing of her intention to be married here. Then John N. Michel and Miss Mary Sweeney, who were waiting, applied for a license. After securing the license they went to Bishop Ryan's residence to be married but not having a dispensation were refused, and later they were married by Squire Quarto n. The next couple was Walter Cole and Miss Mamie McElroy. The young bride is a grand-daughter of Mr.Ohas. Magee of this city and lived k in Alton when quite a small child. Mr. lOole la the son of a prominent leaf tobacco merchant of St. Louis, and Is in partnership with his father. The couple went to BIshopRyan's house and were married there this afternoon. Mr. and Mrs. Cole returned to St. Louis thia afternoon to tell their friends of their marriage. A license was issued this afternoon toGeo. Pateeand Miss Julia Magee, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.Jobn Magee, of this city. The ceremony will be performed at the home of Bishop Ryan. Mr. Patee is a telegraph operator for the Belt line in the bridge office. Choice Venison. Michelbucb's Market. Phone 241.

The first of a series of lectures during the season of 1898-9, of the Shnrt- leff School of Music, was given last night before an appreciative audience that almost filled the Upper Alton Baptist church. Mrs. O. B. Robland lectured on "Organs and Great Organists." She fully sustained her previous reputation as an Interesting and instructive lecturer. Her handling of the subject showed muo'i research and study of the histories and biographies of great masters of the "king of instruments." Mrs. Rohland was ably assisted by W. D. Armstrong, who played selections from the great composers of organ music of each period. Mr. Armstrong's ability was never more clearlydempnstratod than last night. His playing was exqulaite and his part of the program very pleasing to the audience. One of the features of the evening was the singing of the Bach "Ave Maria" by Mrs. J. P. Wbyte, artistically accompanied on the violin by Mr. Leigh Wyman. Mrs. Whyte baa a beautiful soprano voice of much power and range. lor Sale.

Apply to Levl Davis, BURGLAR PROTECTIVE SOCIETY. Mr. E. M. Dor»ey Soliciting Name* for an Association to Hunt Down Burglars anfl Other Criminal!. As noted in the TBLEQEAPH last week, Mr. E. M. Dorsey today drew up a paper eollctlng names of citizens for the organization of an association whose members will guarantee to work for the capture of burglars or other criminals who may perptrate unlawful deeds upon the person or property of any member of the association. Mr. Dorsey's idea, as we understand It, is to secure as large a list as possible of persona who will be willing to unite with the society and pay a small initiation fee and annual dues, the whole not to exceed three or four dollars per year. The funds thus obtained to be offered as a reward for the capture of any criminal who may perpetrate unlawful acts upon the person or property of any member of the association. Mr. Doraey started-out this morning with his paper and met with a flattering reception. He will continue the work until he has made a thorough canvass of the Altons. While the city of Alton has been to a large extent free from the raids of the kinds mentioned, our suburbs have been badly infested and the nefarions visits may at once be transferred to Alton at any time. Upper Alton should start in at once and organize with the Alton society. The reward will induce men to work for the capture of criminals which will in a short time rid the Altons of the presence of criminals.

When the Judiciary committee of the council offered Its report last evening on the claim of the Alton Stoneware & Pipe Co., per A. F. Foster, for the tieoond street sewer, the report was referred to the City Ooun sellor again for report In writing. The committee recommended that a special re-assessment of the property along the sewer be made to pay for the sewer and this will probably be done. Mr. Foster, whose claim is for $1,045.65, has prosecuted the case through the Supreme Court and lout. The court said that the fact that the first assessment was invalid was not reason why a second should not be made. A reassessment is thereby sanctioned by the courts lu order that the contractor may obtain bis money and the council will probably pass the necessary ordinance. ^^ For a good shave, hot and cold bath go to Maul & Hall, Plasa st.
