the academy were fully equipped and the
regular work of the school began.
It is in no pense sectarian. Its board of
trustees and its faculty are composed of
representatives of various evangelical
churches. "While religious instruction is

' The academy is located on Market street
betopn Sermd and Third in the central
I part of the city and conveniently accessi
ble from all parts of the city.
The building is constructed of brick and
stone having a basement and a superstruc
ture of two and one-half stories. It is
mruiNjve and imposing iu appearance.
Large and well ventilated class rooms,
special apartments for music, library, art
and literary halls afford all the facilities
for instruction that are necessary, while
tho spacious and beautiful chapel accom-

modates all the pupils who assemble there
each day for the study of the Bible.
The course of instruction in literature
and literary work is of such character as
to stimulate personal investigation and
original thought, hence everything that
will develop the student's powers will re
cei e special attention.
Special advantages are offered for the
study of chemistry. A well equipped lab
oratory has been fitted up during the last
year. In it each pupil is provided with a
desk and such reagents and apparatus as
is necessary for tho ordinary illustrative
Facilities for special courses in phar
macy, mineralogy and general chemical
analysis are also provided for such as may
wish to do advanced work.
Instruction in art is given in all styles of
work, but special attention is given to free
hand drawine and painting.
Special facilities are offered to students
by the Mount Conservatory of Garfield
University and Lewis Academy.
The opening date of each session is
identical with that of tho academy, its
terms lieing also of ten weeks each, in
cluding forty weeks as the school year.
Most of the lesons given are private

The above broad and comprehensive cur
riculum has been adopted by the board of
trustees and faculty of the institution as
the one best suited to the wants of tho pub
lic generally: The scientific and normal
departments are designed especially for
those preparing for business pursuits or
for teachers in common and graded schools.
Those who complete these courses will re
ceive an appropriate diploma. The classi
cal department will properly prepare those
who wish to enter the freshman class in
any of the colleges or universities.
It is an excellent preparatory course
for those also who expect to study law or
medicine and have neither the time nor
means for more extended preparation.
The classical course is designed to give a
better opportunity for the study of philol
ogy, and it is hoped that the patrons of the
school will appreciate the importance of
pursuing the study of one or more of these
languages, that the structure of our own
language may be better understood. Spe
cial attention in this department is given
to thorough drill in the principles of the
Latin, Gieck, Gcrmtu or French. Those
whocompletethiscour.se will leceive on
leaving the institution a certificate of their
attainments, and a letter of recommenda
tion to some higher institution of learn
As will be seen by the curriculum, the
faculty is determined to keep fully abreast
of the best schools in the United Slates,
hence they have introduced a complete
graded course of study of the best authors
in the English language. Beginning with
the first year ot the intermediate depart
ment, this sories of readings is pursued
throughout the entire course. Thus it is
hoped to develop in the student not only
acquaintance with authors and their
works, but also a taste for good reading
and -i critical ability to read with profit
whatever may be brought before him. The
authors that have already been studied
are: Lamb's Plays of Shakespeare, Scott's
Ivanhoe, Nicholas Xickleb-, Hawthorne's
Marble Faun, Irving's Sketch Book, Mac
aulej 's Milton, Shakespeare's Hamlet, J.
G. Holland's Letters to the Jones, Current
The enrollment of last year was 327
made up as follows: Girls, 103; boys, 112,

This academy also has the honor of being
the first institution in the city to organize
an almuni association. Although ic has
successfully concluded its third commence
ment, it has already an almuni consisting
of twenty-two members, some of whom
are possessed of ability and whose pros
pects for the future are exceedingly promising.
The third annual commencement exer
cises of the Lewis Academy were held yes
terday morning commencing at half past
nine. The large lecture hall "was filled
with the friends of the graduating class and
of the institution. Aside from the interest
felt in the class by the immediate friends,
the program was calculated to be generally
entertaining. The pupils acquitted them
selves finely and it was evident that they
had earned their diplomas and that the
educational standard of the academy was
high. A large floral pyramid ornament
ed the platform and the hail was tastefully
decorated with flags and floral ornaments.
The opening number of the program was
a pianoforte solo by Mrs. Lora, Bell which
was greeted with hearty applause. After
the invocation the graduating exercises
were opened by Mr. Fred B. Ross. Taking
for his subject The Magic Circle, in a grace
ful linking of ideas he made comparison
between the different cycles of history and
logically connected them in order to draw
practic il conclusions.
Miss Ida Montague Reese took for her
subject "Orbis Volvitur; Crux Stat," and
graphically recounting the multitudinous
changes in the world's history since the
birth of Christ established in a clear light

an oration by Mr. Montgomery Hallowell.
At the outset the speaker referred to the
Spartan bravery of old and demonstrated
that the Spartan spirit still lived and still
asserted itself as opportunity offered and

subject "Talks and Talkers," brought out
many ideas in connection with this most
popular mode of interchanging thought.
She divided her subject into different

that certain of the fine arts may bo intro

ordinary affairs of life was enlarged upon
in nn entertaining manner.
Miss Virginia Beatrice Shultz spoke of
"Etherial Symbolos" in pleasing rhythmic
stanzas that received the usual applause
accorded to each effort.
Miss Nettie Harris read an interesting
paper entitled "Noblesse Oblige." The
foundation of the argument was the result

OrBcpresentative Business 3Ien upon Several
Pertinent and Important Questions.
An Eagle inquisitor in his rounds yes
terday excerpted the following interesting
data from conversations listened to and
participated in by him:
Henry Schweiter "Cattle feeding in
Kansas, properly conducted, is very profit
able. Last year I bought 300 head of cat
tle. I raised about 0,000 bushels of corn
and bought the balance. I sold a part of
the cattle about a month ago and the bal
ance last week, and calculate thatl cleared
53,000, thus making 75 per cent on my in
vestment in six months. I can raise corn
at an actual expense of not over 7 cents a
bushel and with as much certainty of a
good crop as any country in the world and
at a less cost. When this country feeds
more corn and ships less this country "will
be more prosperous."
John Kelly "I have always observed
that a cool April and May was the fore
runner of a good crop year in this locality
and am confident that 1S90 will be a pros
perous one for Kansas farmers. Such
weather as we have had for the past month
could not have been more favorable for
wheat and, if I am not very much mis
taken, we will have a very fine quality of
wheat. While the stand is not as heavy as
in some other years, the plump berry will
increase the yield a good deal and offset
the light stand to a great extent and will
bring the top of the-market.
George L. Rouse, president of the board
of trade "The most preposterous thinn
that I can thmk'of at this time is that so
much of our corn is being shipped to and
through Illinois, It is like carrying "coals
to New castle," and the sooner we look for
some other market the sooner will we do
the wise thing. I am a crank on the ele
vator question, and the more I look into
the matter the more thoroughly am I con
vinced that the crying need of the hour is
a well constructed grain market and am
ple elevator capacity. My observation has
been that when a good live stock and grain
market is established other commercial
interests .follow, and j-ou could not stop
them if you wanted to. We have the grain
at our door, why not handle it in a busi
ness way. "We have demonstrated what
we could do iu live stook, and. by the way,
what point in this country has ever made
as great a showing in so short a time as
has Wichita's stock yards and packing
houses? I understand that last week we
stood number eleven as a packing point,
and I predict that we will cut that down a
good many points before the end of this
L D. Skinner The board of trade of
Wichita in my opinion deserves much
more credit than the casual observer gives
it. I have never seen a body of men more
harmonious in their actions; men in the
same line of business striving to outdo
each other, bankers scheming to extend
their business even at the expense of their
competitors come up to the board meetings
and take hold of anything that is to be
done, worl: on committees with each other
as harmoniously as brothers. Several
prominent businessmen of eastern cities
have said to mo that no one thing con
tributed so much to their faith in Wich
ita as the fact that she had such energetic,
enterprising people, and that they all
pulled together. I sometimes wondered
what we would have done without some
such organization as the board of trade to
iook alter puuiic enterprises, out J can
hardly realize a Wichita without her
board of trade. I do not believe there is
such an organization a ours in any town
in the country. The amount of detail
work done is enough to keep the secretary
and two assistants busy often making fif
teen hours a day a regular correspon
dence is kept up Avith parties in all sec
tions of the country and the secretary in
forms me tnat he has in some instances
corresponded for a j ear with some parties
before he could get them to the point of
deciding to come here, but anyone desir
ious of coming to Wichita wanting in
formation is sure to get it by correpond
ing with the secretary.
H. L. Pierce The most surprising thing
to me is the lack of elevator facilities that
exist.-, in Wictiita. There is no point in
the state where so many cars of loaded
grain is found standing upon the side
tracks, and I should think that in self-
defense the railroads would take hold of '
the matter and build elevators. During
the past six months there has been a car
famine in this vicinity, growing out of the
fact largely that the railroads have had to
furnish storage in cars that should have
been supplied by elevators. I think this
matter should le agitated until relief is
had. This condition of things shows a
natural concentration of the grain busi
ness, and further Wichita has always been
recognized as a purchasing and distribut
ing point, which has brought here more
buyers than at any other point in the state.
J. C. Rutan Fire insurance is a business
that has been very much negleeted not
only in Wichita but in the state of Kansas.
Iowa has not less than six local companies
all prospering and making money, all
having started in business with a limited
capital and a number of them now show
ing a capital of not less than $250,000.
It seems to me that a company in Wichita-
conducted with- good business judg
ment would le ti success from the start.
Certainly we send more moneyout in pre
miums than the companies pay out in
losses and the insurance that could be
placed on farm buildings would he an im
mense and a safe and profitable business.
I am surprised that some of our business
men have not taken hold of this matter.
Frank Williams If the people of the
city will only pursue their present course
in advertising, I feel that Wichita and
Sedgwick county will soon become thor
oughly known throughout this country.
The board of trade, the real estate ex
change and the Sedgwick county i migra
tion bureau have each put out within the
three months hundreds of thousands of
pamphlets, folders and papers, and while I
may be an enthusiast on advertising I
know we will reap a rich harvest from iu
While on a visit east a short time ago I i
met a gret many people who said that j
they were hearing nothing but good re- i
xrts of W ichita and southern Kansa and
that they proponed to come out and .e for
themselves as soon a tbey could find time.
What some of our people fail to under
stand is that all other new states ara sys
tematically advertising and when we fail
to keep our advantages constantly before
the people we fail in onr simple duty.

Tiic Wonder of Visitor and the Adi
We comet imes wondfr whether the topo- !
graphical location, elevation, climate, the
picturesqua bcenery, and Uhs feeling of b
ing at home ia Wichita, as it nmt be. mvd
as a mutter of fact is imprtd upon
EtranRers, are properly appreciated by onr
own people. In a state of nature Kanwut
was almost treeless, beautiful and jcraud,
and never to be forgotten by t hose fortun
ate enough to have een it, freh from tbi
hand of nature, but it wn observed by tho
hardy pioneer, that their camping places
were always by preference in the ralleyi of
the streams among the trees, for there they
felt at home, and where the trader guides
and other border men struck the site of
Wichita, it was here tbey Mngured, finding
many pretext for remaining in a "pot so
pleasant, beautiful and so safe.
That being at home feeling still survive
and is very strong in the breats of the
sons and daughters of Wichita, and it
would be inM ructive could we enumerate
the people who have decided to eaat their
lot with ns for no other reaeoni. That feel
ing has influenced our citizens throughout
the years of our dty3 young life until Uy
day she is not excelled by any of New Eng
land's elm embowered towns and cities In
that which is their chief pride and glory
and the inspiration of home make toe
country oier her grand countle old trees.
There is probably no street ia Xew Eng
land that in that respect excels Lcwrence
avenue and some other streets of our city,
for the trees are here and M the expense of
a few dollars in pruning, ia cultivation of
the utwa, an occasional fence or walk a
result would follow that the landscape
not improve upon. Yes,
the trees are here, and what more glorious

not as beneficent nor as dear to the heart

priceless possessions of Wichita; it U not a
possibility but a itA that we must not
underestimate, so let ns by a proper prido
