The Board of Public Improvements has accepted the Fifth aud Uldge streets paving contract from Contractor Kyan. After the adverse report of the Council committee, as to the acceptance of the work, It wftfl determined that the Board of Public Improvements needed some bolstering up, so three engineers were on- gaged to give the report a coat of whitewash. The engineers performed the duty for which they were hired and then the conscience of the Board of Public Improvements was clear. The board, it Is Interesting to note, consists of the officers who are responsible for the quality of the paving. _ Christmas fruits.

From what the TELEGRAPH'S Edwardsville correspondent says, it is very evident the county seat has a guileless quota of business men. The innocents who do business over there are easy marks for pretty women, keen men and unprincipled* fellows generally. We suggest to His Honor, Judge Early, whether It would not be a good plan to request the Public Guardian to take charge of the county seat's unsophisticated business men.

Bowman & Co.'s, have agreed upon a settlement with the insured, and the loss is now .adjusted. A satisfactory conclusion of the negotiations was arrived .at this morning, but as to the terms nothing can be learned. Mr. W. H. Humpidge today said to a TELEGRAPH reporter, that the terms are to be made known to no one, for private reasons. He also said that the adjusters are authority for the statement that the settlement is one of the quickest on record. The fire was extingulsned Saturday a 9 a. m., and in just 98 hours from that time the five insurance companies had agreed with the insured as to the amount of damages sustained. Mr. Bowman was very anxious to secure a settlement while the Christmas trade was still at its best and to this end ho and his assistants have worked night and day. The store will be opened for business tomorrow. UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE •"flHwSB :•: THE :•: PIERSON & CARR D, Q. Co. Will be Found In Their Office In the Second Story of Dorsey Fuei;Co On Piasa Street.

It is handsomely printed, and bound In green board covers. It is attractive and neat. Its recipes are no doubt of t he highest order—at least we so, judge from the manner in which the mechanical part of the book is executed. The book Is dedicated to Mrs. George W. Smith, wife of the pastor, and h a delicate, faultlessly expressed compliment, which every one who knows her will recognize as most worthily bestowed. It is: "Dedicated to Mrs. George W. Smith, who, dear, near and true, no trner- has fed us all from her wealth ofTove and modesty, and made sweet Sur cups from musio lhat hath charms; °f sweeter life can be to thee.take th is, andknow that they who wrote it, honoring your sweet faith in them, S2ve known one most uncommon, a friend who loves at all times." Walls Are Dangerous. Fire Chief McDonald today condemned aa unsafe tho walla of-tho Pierson & Oarr D. G. Oo. building. The walla are old and in tha ordinary courseof events their useful ness would be over in a short time because of age, but the Ore of last .Saturday morning has put an end to them. Fire Chief McDonald noticed a few days ago that the walls were cracked and bulged so as to render them a menace to public safety. He made out his report today, and has ordered that the walla be at once torn down. This action of the Fire Chief will make a new building necessary. Mr. Johnson, of Philadelphia, owner of the Duilding will be in Alton next week. When he arrives ho will no doubt decide to erect a modern building in the place of the destroyed one. It will be the beginning of much needed advancement in the replacing of old dilapidated store buildings about town with modern structures and may thereby signalize the return of business prosperity to Alton. Fire Chief McDonald also eon dem- nedj the building occupied by H. J. Bowman & Co. aud served notice on Mr. Bowman today that tho structure must be immediately torn down. Tho four walU of both buildings are full of yawning cracks and the interstices of the bricks where mortar once was are now empty. Iron anchors have been placed in the brick work to help support the walls, but these anchors are pulling out under the strain and make the walla uuaafe to life and adjaining property. Mr. Bowman will erect a handsome new building to be occupied by his store. Iftheflra of last Saturday is to be the beginning of improvements in Alton's now long-neglected business district, it will prove a blessing in disguise, and 4 oue that no one, excepting the lnfmrj.uco compauies.need regret deeply. For many years this part of the city has been almost a disgrace to a town of the importance of Alton. Antiquated fronts and inconvenient, badly lighted business Houses have been tho rule, aud time has now come for a step forward. ^^ ^ ^^ ^ —-^ LOVE POWDER." j ( You d.n't need any IOTO powdcrl If, vou nre In lovo buy your sweoth hwt a box of Sparrow's Delicious Chocolates,{ an atomizer, or a bottle of rich, swell and «y.nuiaito pertumo. < ' Something to tickle the palate, please^ the ovo and BensB of smell / \ Remember your mo'hor your sister and -i her llttlo brother.
