About one week ago their nine years old daughter, Ida, was taken with the terrible child enemy, and after a short struggle the unequal contest closed with the oft- time fatal results that attends the disease. The little girl died Friday evening. The afflicted parents will have the genuine sympathy of everyone, especially because of the relentlees- ness of this disease. In the past three years tbo family has been visited three times with the same disease and several of the children have suffered with it eacb time. The funeral of little Ida took place this afternoon from tbe family home. A New Order.

Officer James Patterson Pack (Dr. Hawkshawe of the Alton police force) was notified last Tuesday that boys were skating on tbe then thin Ice of Smith's pond and in the interest of the lives of the children he was orJered to stop it. The order slumbered peacefully in tbe place where his brains should be, until today, when he happened to remember what be was told to do. Jim hurried to Smith's pond and there .found dozens of boys and girls enjoying tbe flue skating. He ordered them all from the ice threatening to arrest any who disobeyed him. The ice is now perfectly safe being six) inches in thickness. Persona . Miss Anna McAdams, of Otterville, spent yesterday in Alton with relatives. Mrs. J. S.

St. Charles County Want* the Belt Line to Pay Its Taxes and has Seized the Property, Sheriff John F. Schneider of St. Charles county, baa levied upon and seized all of the right, title and interest of the St. Glair, Madison & St Louis Belt Railway Company and the Central Trust Company, of New York n and to 2 37 miles of railroad track n St. Charles county, and including one-half of the Alton bridge, under an execution issued by the Clerk of the Circuit Court of St. Charles county Dec. 5,1898, to satisfy a judgment rendered at the August term of court for the back taxes of the year 1895, amounting in the aggregate to 93,126, :3. The property upon which the evy was made is valued at 8284,400, The execution is made returnable to the February term of court in 1899, and unless these taxes, interest there on and the casts are settled prior to that time the property will be sold. Superintendent J. E. May, when asked about the seizure of the prop erty by tbe Sheriff of St. Charles county, said that the taxes claimed by the county of St. Charles, and for which the execution was issued, were for the year 1895, about which there has been a dispute. He said that the Sheriff In- iended merely to protect his county igainst any possibility of the property >f the Belt Line changing bands. Just at the time in 1898, when tbe suit against the St. Olair, Madison & St. lOnis Belt Railroad was brought by he county of St. Charles for back axes,the Belt Line property went into he hands of a receiver and proceed ngs were dropped. For some reason be receiver has not seen fit to pay he taxes of that year although taxes mve beon paid promptly since for subsequent years. Mr. May said that he owners of the bridge will pay up ather than have their property sold >y the Sheriff. ID some quarters it is elieved that the non-payment of axes was simply a ruse of certain ersons to bring about a sale of the roperty for purposes quite frequent- y accomplished by large stockholders n a piece of property. A sale might ie forced and then the property could e bought in by the capitalists who are after it. It is denied, however, hat there was any such motive on the sari of the large stockholders, and it s claimed that the failure of the re- eiver to pay taxes was simply be- ause of a .dispute with St. Charles ounty officials. for Men Only.

The water works company and the City Council are to have another parring exhibition next Tuesday jvening. Strictly speaking, however, he council is to do the sparring while he water works company will com- ilaoently sit there In the person of its luperintendent, and take it all. In these sparring contests the water woiks company has some of tbe characteristics of a rubber punching bag, or it is always ready for the next •ound, and never shows the effect of •ough usage. Chairman Hoffman of the Fire Department committee la preparing julte a speech, which be is to deliver, excoriating tbe company. He is prac- ;iclng it now at every spare moment, and it would be advisable for the water company to take a long bracing drink of its water to give it enough of sand to stand the racket. Tbe ea»u» >elli is the failure of the water works ;o supply presure to the firemen at ;he flre, when Mr. 0. F. Sparks' house was destroyed. For this failure the water works company is to be Inflicted with the most cruel tortures and alderrnaniccondemnation. Of course ,he water company is guilty, it never pretends to be not guilty, and that IB uat the point that gives the ad van- age against Mr. Hoffmann, It never ^alka back, Just gons right alone drawing Itu pay at pay-day and luiin- )ly permits tbe aMonuun local!

More Cold Weather Probable. Last night was tha coldest of the season—zero weather being registered at many places, and several degrees below by some thermometers. There Is very cold weather—much colder than we have here—east and north of this section, while the south is receiving a fair share o( old Boreas' attention. Snow prevails on all sides of this section. The probabilities are for much colder weather Dr. Hyatt, the St. Louis weather observer, says tbe present winter probably,will develop into a record breaker for cold weather. He says that, officially, the United States weather authorities do not make predictions more than 24 or 48 hours ahead of time, but, like nearly every citizen in private life, be has a certain theory, sign or indication, whichever it may be termed. Dr. Hyatt judges unofficially by the river and fortifies his judgment with the record of the Mississippi for tbe last 37 years. In that period the river ba<j never remained open for more than three years at a time. For tbe last three winters the river at St. Louis has remained open to navigation continuously, but Dr. Hyatt thinks that boats will be tied up for several weeks before the next signs of spring.

Put together small things, enough, and behold! they are no longer small }ut great and lasting. "Many a little makes a miohel," says the Scotch adage, and a small gift added to many more, and the hungry are fed, clad, and properly cared for. There are few who would not, if they thought about it, deny themselves some small luxury or trifle and thereby bo able to donate 25 or 50 cents that the aged poor may have their home. Tbe board of directors are paying for the home now, and this necessarily means heavy additional expenditures every mouth. They are about starting out therefore, and it is by no means an easy task, to systematically canvass tbe Altons for money and gifts for this most laudable purpose. If an average of 25 or 50 cents a year from each inhabitant could be obtained, the payments could be made easily and this charitable enterprise could be placed on a sound financial basis. There are few so poor or so young that they cannot spare this amount, and even if all cannot, there are those who can, and probably will, be glad to give more, thereby paying for themselves and others.
