MEETING OF "OLD FOLKS."
Vnl. Henry I.. Webb, II r. .trier, Dffasr,
rxlirr, JsatMli, Hatirortl auil ii'illlain.
There was ii very ploasant rc-union of
"old folks'1 In this city, yesterday, at the
residence of Dr. Arlcr, on Tenth street.
Tho party consisted of Col. Henry L.
Webb, now entering tho fourth quarter
of his century, who located In Illinois
about sixty years ago, and who, forty
eight years ago was a member of tho Illi
nois legislature. A. II. Safford, cashier of
tho City Nntional Bank, who landed
among tho rushes nt tho mouth of Chicago
river thirty-four years ago; 3Ir. Macklc,
of tho firm of Mackle & Co., of this city, a
gcntloman whoso years of maturity bordor
upon arty, -Mr. Mcars, father-in-law of D.
W. Munn, who is about 70 rears of ace,
Dr. Tabcr, father of tho Tabor Brothers,
of this city, Dr. Arter, aged 74 years, and
Capt. Geo. D. Williamson, an old resident
of tho county, although not n rrry old
man. The vcnerablo John S. Hacker was
on a visit to his son-in-law in tho country,
and could not thereforo accept tho invita
tion to attend.
At ono o'clock the party sat down to
dinner, and right heartily did they dicus
tho sVjre of well-served edibles .Mrs. Ar
ter had provided. ot ono of the nuin
ber was too old or feeblo to partako frceh
of tho roasts, tho vegetnble, tho cakes,
the pastne", the Jellies and delicious cof-
fco that were set before them In .neh
Within tho limited i.nnco of a "local"
article it would t impossible to detail the
reminiscences thee "old folks'" dug from
the well of tho past; to repeat tho stories
of old times And adventures they told ; to
epcak of the old memories they revived or
of the life they seemed to live over again.
Col. Webb hsd lived over a half century
nlrnot within slghtof tho Junction of theso
rivers, and possessing a vigor of mind und
body not common with men of his ago,
most retentive memory, and rare conver
sational powers, it was itllko pleasant
and profitable to listen to descriptions of
times and scenes, the men and measures
of fifty years ago. A memory of all tho
events, changes, Important occurences and
tucidents in tho early history of Southern
Illinois, is still retained by him, and it is,
apparently, a real pleasure to draw upon
that memory for the edification of his
frionds, and especially for the entertain
ment ol'sttch n party that of which he
was the center yesterday.
Doctor and .Mrs. Arter were exceedingly
kind and hospltablo to their invited guests,
and did all tbey could do or should have
done to make tho occafion an interesting
Thk Eriecoi-AL Festivai The Epis

pectedly successful. Thu "foreshadow
ings" were favorable; but who drearaod
that In n singlo night, from strawberries,
cream, lemonade, etc., the sum of six hun
dred dollars could bo realized?
The "ring" was nwarded to Miss Anna
Pitcher, as the most popular vonng ladv
in attendance. Nine hundred nnd sixtv
five ten-cent votes woro polled, nearly
one-half of which were cast for a married
ludy of tho city, to whoso cheerful and val
uable assistance much of the success re
alized is due. Tho ring netted ?9C.C0.
Tho barrel of whlto wheat half-dozon X
flour, donated by Mr. Charles Gallghcr,
was sold five or six time, netting an ag
gregate of 503.
The Silver Comet band ndded tho charm
of most delicious music to tho occasion,
drawing hundreds of persons to tlm front
of the hall, from all parts of tbe city.
Tho crowd separated about 1 o'clock,
delighted with the evening's entertain
ment, and assured of tho pecuniary suc
cess of tho occasion, by tho depleted con
dition of their purses.

Tho first and second classes aro primary.
Tho first class, consisting of 8 llttlo fel

their parents and friends what a fow
short months' propor training nnd dlli

Tho second elms, which is composed of
M pupils, between ages of C and 8, be
trayed excellent progress, and passed tho
test successfully. Edith Oberly wat

Tho third class, composed of 11 schol

In tho first class, in which Otto's Trans
