Communicated. Rev. J. A. Scarritt
took his departure yesterday for Alton, his
future home, for this conference year at
least. Since Mr. Scarritt's sojourn with us,
he won the hearts of not ouly his church
members, but also many of our citizens, and
it is with genuine regret that we are called
upon to part with him, but shall we not
hope that, like many others, ho may, after
while, come bick to Cairo. We trust
he may win as many warm friends in Alton
as he has in Ctiro, and that he may be as
succes3ful in his church relations as he wis
here. We congratulate the 51. E. church
at Alton on their good fortune in securing
Rev. J. A. Scarritt as their pastor. M.
We were walking down Washington
avenue yesterday when three young ladies
came tripping along,' all talking at once,
and from what we heard we imagined
they had been to the gypsy camp. One
was particularly happy, and the others
seemed a little out of sorts. The one said
Bhe "believed every word of it." The others
said "the old vixen don't know any more
about it than we do," At last tho cause of
the discussion was revealed. The fortune
teller had predicted that the ono who seem
ed satisfied was to marry a tall young man
with an elegant mustache. Neither of the
others had been promised a lord with a
hirsute ornam?nt above bis feed orifice,
and that was what broke them up.
Mrs. L. E. Williamson's fall opening
this week was a grind success and attract
ed a large number of ladies. We noticed
a number of imported bonnets, plumes and
rich laces. Tho hats and large bonnets are
very elegantand unique in shapp, and it is
impossible for the many varied tastes of the
ladies to fail to be suited. On tho corners
were displayed extremely long kid gloves,
laced, of every shade, very fine duchess lace
handkerchiefs, chenille and beaded fringes
and trimming?; also, a fine line of ladies'
and infants' clonk?. Mrs. Williamson has
also a Cue stock of fancy goods, notions,
jewelry, handsome velvet albums and
frames, Jet ornarrents, ribbons, etc. Mrs.
Williamson deserves a great deal of credit
for the elegant goods that she has ex
hibited. It gives every one a chance to see
the styles that can usually only be seen in
the larger cities. Her store and goods can
not bo excelled In any city in Illinois out
side of Chicago; Her souvenirs wero vcrv
pretty and given away in profusion.
