A large aadieuce assembled in College Chapel lest night to bear the dramatic entertainment and musical given by the Sigma Phi Society. The progam consisted of "Sweethearts'" a dramatic contrast, and "Lend Me Five Shillings," a farce. In "Sweethearts" Mr. Harry Spreadbrow (W. W. Dudley) comes courting Miss Jennie Northcott (Miss Lillian Warnack 1 who in maiden perversity flouts his honest love and sends him to Inria, where he all but forgeto her existence. Hetnrning 30 years after ho finds her a broken bearted old maid but true to her flrst love. Touched by her long devotion, some of his old passion for her revives, and the play ends with the lovers reunited for life. The minor purtu of Ruth, the.maid servant, and Wllcox, the gardener, were takan by Miss Kloise Burnapand O. 8. Abrams. "Lend Me Five Shillings," Is a ball room farce, giving the adventures of one Golightly in his attempts to borrow five shillings to hire a fly in which to take his lady home. The leading parts were taken by Misses Rutb Hanna and Etnehvyn Coittenden, and Messrs. W. L. Kline, A. W. Sherwood, T. H. Fitch, A. J. Hoag and H. W. Johnson. The mnsi- cal part of the program was delightful. Mrs. J, P. Wbyte saug "Le 8e- rau," Prof. Armstrong played, nnd a chorus of eight voices from the Dominant Ninth nang two selections. Mr. W. M. Kingsbury, a professional whistler from St. Louie, was present and bis artistic renditio%of Schubert's serenade was met with a storm of applause. Altogether the entertainment was very .successful, and one of the best of Its kind ever given in Upper Alton. Only 3 Days to \mas! WE LEAD IN EXPORTS.

Irwiu, who was sent west to look up tho bank property about Spokake, and also of the assignee's reply. There has been much feeling over the manner m which the assignees have discharged their duties and spine of this feeling bubbled over during the proceedings. One of the creditors who suspected another one of favoring the side of the assignees, openly accused him of the fact. The discussion became heated and the accused struck his accuser in tbe face, slightly scratching him. The latter drew a knife andpro.ared to defend himaolf but bystanders interfered and the incident passed with out serious mishap.

Onr advance, considering tbat iu tho middle of tho decade we passed through one of tbo most disastrous panics ia oar history, has been wonderful. November's export trada broko tbo record. Tho treasury department bureau of statistics' preliminary figures for tho mouth show that our exports of domestic merchandise amounted to $127,483,407, exceeding tbe record of December last by $4,330,384. Including the few exports of foreign products our exports hist month amounted in all to $129.783,512. The December, 1897, record was $125,053,861, while tbe record prior to that was $117,185,826, made in December, 1890. Tbo November exports fbow nu increase of over $13,000,000 over those in last November, while tbe increase UTBJ the November exports of three, years ago ia over $42,000,000. Sir C. T. Ritchie, president of tbe English board of trade, in a epeecb bo- fore tbe Croydou chamber of commerce tbo other day, calling attention to tbe critical state of tbe foreign trade of tbe kingdom, elated that while in the period of 1891-7 the exports from France bad increased 1 >£ per cent, those from Germany, Holland and Bulginm 12% per cent, and those from the United States 18 per cent, the United Kingdom's exports had fallen off 5 per cent. Up to the end of October the English exports for the year bud fallen off £2,600,000 ($13,000,000), wbilo the imports bad increased £14,000,000 ($70,000,000). He attributed the wonderful increase of our export trade to tbo development of our natural resources and said tbat our tariff was in a large part responsible for the decline of England's, export trade. Tbe United Kingdom's exports of ber owu products last year amounted to $1,138,941,015, while our exports wero valued at $1,079,834,294. Thu British lead of $170,000,000 in 1896 was enf down to $60,000,000. We are not only going to overcome this $00,000,000 thia year, but we will lead the United Kingdom by from $00,000,000 to $90,000,000. Tho.British total will probably bo a little less than last year, while onrswill be between $1,200,000,000 and $1,225,000,000.- Our domestic exports for the 11 months of tbo year wero $1,098,089,130, uud a December total as low as tho lowest December record in years would bring tho year's domestic exports tens of millions of dollars iibove •-Engluml'B. Our excess of exports this year will reach remarkable figures. November not only broko the export record, hut made » new record for a mouth's excess of exports. While the exports were nearly $130,000,000, tho imports were only $52,109,500, the exact excess of exports buiug $77,673,952. If the De- comber excess is up to the average, the year's "balance of trade" will come close to being $000,000,000 in our favor. Last year we thought $360,000,000 a grunt record. The wonderful progress of our export trade in this decade is apparent from a glance at this table: Excess Exports, over Imports. 18(10 JS67.502.548 1801 ero.coo.iuo l&K! 938,420,080 1803 870,108,781 1SU4 825,102,248 18116 824,6«0,la« 18W) 1,005,843,241 1SW 1,OW,7K807 1S1I3 *1,280,UOO,000 •Estimated.

For the 11 mouths of the year the total exports from Iho United States were $1,117,681,1(19, an increase of over $243,000,000 over the corresponding period last year. Witb the new record for merchandise exports iu 1898 will come a now record for gold imports, and a remarkable record for excess of gold imports over exports. The record of 1880 is already swept uway. For the 11 months of the year the gold imports were $14 9,3 90,870, aud the exports $14,975,316, an e.vusa of imports of $1H4,4S.'1,054.
