A new bench of retorts to increase tbe capacity of the gas works will arrive in a few days. The improvements will be made at a heavy expense and. will make better service in all branches of the company's plant. Serious Runaway. A horse driven by a young colored man from Wood river township, whose name could not be learned, ran away last night on East Second street and came near to causing tbe death of the driver and a young woman who was with him. The horse dashed down the street and leaped into Shield's branch between the O. & A. and Big Four bridges, landing on the stones at the bottom twenty feet below, and was badly hurt. The occupants of the buggy were thrown out on tbe 0. & A. track just as the Kansas Oity train was coming along. Persons who saw the accident ran to their assistance and helped them out of the way before the train came up. The train was flagged and stopped but the precaution was unnecessary. Mr. M. H. Stock and his son, who were standing near, helped to pull the horse out of the branch. The horse had to be killed. It transpired today that the horse belonged to 'a farmer named Edward Jackson who lives near Wood Station, and that the driver, Marshal Alexander, had taken the horse from Jackson's place without permission. Jackson was wroth when he heard of the accident and came to town to secure a warrant for the arrest of Alexander on the charge of driving the horse to death. Alexander will probably be charged with, horse stealing also. EXAMINE OUR CLOTHES And you will aoe that the patterns we »how are tbe newest ami the beat.

G ZERO WEATHER. ;old Wave Breaks a Record of Two Years Standing.—The River Is Blocked. The degree of cold attained this morning was the lowest that has been recorded this season. In fact tbe blizzard that has had control of things 'or the past week broke a record this morning tbat has not been broken for iwo years. This morning at 8 o'clock :hermometera about town indicated ,he coldest temperature that has been mown this season and since 1896. The lowest temperature noticed this morning was C degrees below zero, and the records about town varied up o 4 degrees above zero. Fur caps and warm gloves were a necessity. The cold is not the kind that causes great inconvenience. It is a still, dry old that gets in its work in good shape on the ice fields across the river mt does not penetrate to the boaes of a human being. A look at the mighty Mississippi will convince any one that the weather is cold. The channel is almost blocked by floating ice and a gorge will soon form if the weather remains ojld and the river continues to fall. The fields of ice floating in the river are of many acres in extent and some of them would if thick enough block tbe narrow passage now remaining at the bridge. From the Illinois shore the ice is piled up in a stationary mass so far out as the raft span of the iridge. From the other shore the ice extends to the sixth pier, leaving only iwo spans of the bridge unblocked. Great masses of ice come down the river and seemingly can not pass this narrow opening but the floes soon ield to the sharp granite upper ends of the bridge piers. Across the river the bay behind the _ove»nment dike is now thick enough to bear foot passengers, and a path was begun this morning. A skiff ferry between the Illinois shore and the dike has been doing a good business all day. RIVER BLOCKED. A gorge formed in the river at the kilns of the Alton Lime & Cement Go. ust before noon today. The gorge was formed in a very narrow channel where a long sandbar on the Missouri bore and a jutting point on the Illinois side make a secure hold for tbe natural bridge. The gorge is similar o the one of, last year being at the lame place. It was formed earlier by two weeks this year than last year.

Tne Blaoa: ilawks will break their owu roojtftf, so they say, and further they say the :>arty will be the very llaeut tnut ever ;ook place in Alton. Their young .ady friends are preparing to give a party ou tbe Tuesday preceding tho Friday of the Black Hawk party, aud this too is to be a swell event at tho Madison.

The remaining part of the leather mail pouch stolen from tbe Alton post office, was found at Qreen Ridge, twenty miles south of Girard, on the trucks of a car, Thursday, by a 0.& A. teight conductor. When the pouch was found by the conductor he at once concluded that it had been xtolen, judging from its mutilated condition. A few days after the robbery, the bot- tora of tbe pouch was found with a jile of opened mail matter in tbe shed used by the Alton to shelter tbe hand- oar and section tools in this cicy. It s supposed that the thief, after cut- in g the bottom from the sack, placed :he larger piece on the truck of the reight car and there it remained un>il yesterday while tbe car was on its .ravels. The piece of the pouch found at Qreen Ridge bears the facing slip of the Alton office and is certainly tbe one stolen here. The government autborities have earned nothing new in the mysterious disappearance of tbe pouch and tbe thief should now bo £ safely out of :he way. Try the Best, "LaBelle," 84.00. Sale of Stock.
