FABLES MACHINE WORKS.
MACHINE SHOPS, EEPATE SHOPS,
BOILER W0BKS, P.EASS AND
IE0N P0UNDEY. 6
The Faries Machine Works were Opened
Six Years Ago in a Very Mode3t
Way and now Have an Immense
Trade The Demand for In
creased Facilities in the
The Faries machine works were estal)
lished in Wichita on Fourth avenue. In
abont three year the business of the con
cern had increased so that more room and
better facilities were imperative. The
plant was then moved to its present loca
tion, 124 South Washington street, and
has been enlarged each year as necessity
It was soon necessary to build a boiler
shop and foundry separate and later on a
brass foundry. The immense ma
chinery and lathes that may
be seen m the works today
look very different from the small single
lathe that did all the work at the com
mencement. Mr. R. P. Farries is a practical machinist
and founder and gives all work his per
sonal supervision, allowing nothing to
leave the works without having been thor
oughly inspected by himself. In addition
to the plant already referred to the repair
shop is an important feature in his busi
ness, and was added to meet a pressing de
mand existing at the time.
At present only fifteen hands are em
ployed, being all skilled labor, but during
tlie busy season a much larger force is
required. Entering the establishment from
Washington avenue one first passes into
the machine shop. The lathes and drill are
all run by steam power. There are three
engine lathes of different sizes for differ
ent kinds of work, three drill presses and
two simpers, besides a variety of machinery
for finishing anil light work.
These immense machines work iron with
as much ease as the carpenter's lathe turns
the wood. Large derricks are placed at
convenient places to enable the workmen
to handle heavy pieces of machinery with
case and despatch.
The adjoining building is the engine and
boiler room. A huge engine of the latest
improved design by means of an intricate
system of shafting drives the entire ma
chinery of tho plant.
Immediately in the rear of the engine
room is a ponderous steam hammer whose
action imitates the blows of a hammer in
the hands of a man. Its force though is
so great that the hardest iron after a few
blows is beaten out into a sheet as thin as
In the rear of these buildings are the
boiler works and foundries. In convenient
places the cutters and simpers are located
so that all of the work is reduced to the
minimum and time and muscle are both
saved. The riveting is all dono by hand
and to a casual observer this is
the most interesting part of the
works. As soon as the ears become accus-
, N i
tomed to the din one perceives that the
blows all fall with a precision thatJs quite
Adjoining tire building are the ijxn and
brass foundries. The molds were all set
for a run which will take place today.
Only the most expert moulders can le
utilized in this department as this class of
work requires greater exactness than any
kind of casting.
When these machine works were
opened Mr. Faries only contemplat
ed filling the local demand, but
he soon found his business would cov
er a very large territory and the repair
works and other additions became neces
sary. With the characteristic enterprise
of the Wichita business man he lost no
time in enlarging until he was able to
handle all the business he could get. It is
only the question of a very short time
when he will have to erect a separate
foundry for his brass works. His orders
come from as far west as Colorado and as

yefc he has a monopoly of the Oklahoma
trade in special branches. In an interview
Mr. Faries said that lus trade came to him
with very little soliciting, and it had in
creased so rapidly that he had his hands
full taking care of it without .ooking for
more. He had never turned away work
but had often wished it would come in
just a little slower. By another year he
hoped to have a plant and a skilled force
that would enable hiirt to take care of all
the work in his line west and south of
AX OL.D CITIZEN GONE.
The funeral services of Dr. J. C. Dean
were held at his late residence on Law
rence avenue, yesterdav at 10 a. m. The
pastor of the First Presbyterian church,
Rev. David Winters, of which church Dr.
Dean was a member, conducted the exer
cises. He first read some appropriate pas
sages of scripture and offered prayer. Bev.
J. D. Hewitt was asked to offer some re
marks upon the life and character of the
deceased. In the course of his remarks
Mr. Hewitt said that he had known Dr.
Dean ever since he came to this place. The
life and character of the man reminded
him of two of Bunyan's representations in
the "Pilgrim's Progress." Dr. Dean, lie
said, was like Great Heart. He was
a man who had such a broad and general
interest in all snterprises that tend to ben
efit mankind that they found a place in
his sympathies and always commanded his
generous aid. In the church he had al
ways been a faithful and hard working of
ficer. He was a man of great mental vigor
and activity. In the course of a long busi
ness career he had been more than ord
inarily successful. Like most men he had
met with many reverses, but like another
of Bunyan's characters he was always
"hopeful." The resuy; of such a life is not
to be measured by what he left behind him
when he passed to the other shore, but by
what he took with him across the river.
A man leaves all he has but he takes with
him all that he is. Dr. Dean had become
a fully rounded character.
At the close of the addrers Dr. Fleming
offered prayer, and the procession moved
quietly to the new cemetery lying east of
Dr. Dean had been an invalid for nearly
two and a half years. During this long
illness he was faithfully ministered to by
a devoted wife and children.
"Let me die the death of the righteous."
bCHOOIj HOAR!) JIATTKKS.
The school board committee to select a
corps of teachers for the work during the
next school year completed their work yes
terday. It was by no means a pleasant
task, and its importance called for close
attention and care.
The bids from contractors to construct
the college building will be given to the
clerk today. The plans have been exam
ined by a number, and as a result several
bids are threatened. The board will hold
a meeting Monday evening to open the
bids and probably award the contract.
The report of the committee selecting
will probably be submitted to the board
and acted upon. As represented, it is not
thought probable that there will be any
difficulty in deciding on the corps of teach
ers. The Sixth ward new building is receiv
ing its finishing touches, and in a few days
the building committee will be called upon
to make a report on the question of its ac
ceptance. The Third ward building is
about ready for the roof, and it is thought
work will commence on the College hill
building within a short time and be com
pleted in time to be ready for use at the
beginning of the next school year.
LOOKING OVi;it WICHITA.
Mr. W. E. Farlow, of St. Joseph, Mo., a
leading live stock man in the Missouri val
ley, and, in fact, a leading man in his bus
iness in the west, spent yesterday in the
city. As he represented it he had no time
to spend in Wichita or in any other city
for fun, but it was purely business. Most
of the afternoon was put in at the stock
yards and around the packing houses. He
was taking in Wichita as a business town;
looking after the cattle market and pack
ing facilities. After a careful investiga
tion he was prepared to say that Wichita
is more of a nucleous of a great city than
he had ever expected to find. While he
knows southwestern Kansas, the Terri
tory, Texas and all the wonderful domain
which would naturally demand a livestock
market closer than the Missouri river he
had not become acquainted with the city
and with the fact that the demand, which
was logical, had resulted in the establish
ment of a market. He seemed greatly sur
prised at such a wonderful start Wichita
had gained and he was quite sure there
would always be a rapid development.

nently a review school for teachers, while
the best methods of teaching will be dis
cussod and opportunity given for special
work in higher branches.

CA1TA1N CI KEY AT HOME.

main here four or five days looking after
some important business matters, when he

ment there. He was met by a number of
friends last evening who were quit sbwl j
to see him again in Wichita and also quite
glad to remind him of bis promise to re
turn to the city early in the fall to remain.
SUICIDE BY THE PISTOL ROUTE.
Anjnist Waencr Ends HU Life Almost Instantly
by Shooting Himself la the Jtlouta
Financial Troubles the Cause.
Yesterday afternoon about 3:80 a pistol
shot was heard in the vicinity of Main
and English streets and seemed to come
from the residence of Mr. August Wagner.
A moment later Mrs. Wagner rushed out
of the residence and seemed greatly ex
cited, and some parties at the Hotel Met
ropole hastened to her assitance. Mr.
Wagner lay struggling on the floor of the
front room and it was evident at once
that he had suicided by shooting himself
in the mouth. Dr. Edward Whitlock was
sent for but before he received the news a
block away death had arrived. An ex
amination showed that the ball from a
44-calibre Bull Dog had entered the roof
of the mouth ranging upwards, but had
not come out. The mouth was burned
and the face blackened with the smoke.
Blood had escaped freely from the wound,
nose, ears and eyes.
The news of the sad affair spread rapidly
over the city and while to most who heard
it, it was a great surprise to his most in
timate friends it could scarcely be so desig
nated. A few minutes before the fatal
shooting he met some friends on the street
and concerning a business matter said "I
will see you tomorrow if I don't kill my
self." For some days he has intimated oc
casionally to friends that he had about
concluded that he would prefer death to
living. Some thought he meant what he
said, others thought him certainly not sin
cere in what he was saying.
The source of his trouble was in the fact
that for the last two or three years his
business ventures have not been so suc
cessful as desired and recently he has been
hard pressed for money. For some time a
claim for $2,200 has been in one of the
courts and yesterday he was convinced
that the suit would go against him. He
tried to place a mortgage on some of his
property and could raise $1,800 but
that would not settle the claim nor
could he arrange for time on the
remaining $400. He seemed to get discour
aged about the matter and troing home
about ten minutes before ending his life
told Mrs. Wagner about the financial
trouble but seemed cheerful withal, acting
perfectlj- rational and natural. Walking
into an adjoining room was followed a mo
ment later by the report of the pistol.
While there may seem little doubt about
how he came to his death the remains were
visited by the coroner and jury last even
ing and an inquest will be held this morn
ing. The deceased was in his 45th year: born
in Prussia, Germany, and moved to Wn
thena, Kan., near St. Joe, in '73. Living
there about a year he married Miss Mary
Larman and he moved to Wichita in early
'74. He opened the first butcher shop in
the town and has been in the business ever
since. He leaves five children, ranging in
ages from G to 15 years. The arrangements
had not been completed last evening for
the funeral services but they will be held
some time Sunday.
"Thekla" was given last night at tho
Crawford Grand for tho benefit of the
Childrens' Home, and over $300 was real
ized from which the expenses of the pro
duction will be deducted.
The scene from Ingomar was very good
indeed and the statues by Miss Chambers
were very favorably received. The drama
was well rendered without a hitch. The
fairy drill was very entertaining and ap
preciated. The specialties were all good.
Miss Lucy Ford, the musical directoress,
had evidently done her work most thor
oughly. Mrs. Toler's hopes to give a first
class performance must Have been fully re
alized. In short, the entertainment was
far superior to what, was expected, and as
a matter of fact the Wichita public is sel
dom treated to a finer performance.
The word good might bo truthfully
written opposite every name on the pro
gram and, in a few instances, clever, cute,
pretty, artistic, neat and great might even
be used without varying from the truth
Thekla will bo repeated on Wednesday
evening, .lune is, and every one win Know
enough to secure seats well in advance.

The LICu and Literary Work of Mrs. Kdira
Boston, June 2. Mrs. Edna D. Cheney,
of tins city, who has just published a sequel
to Ibsen's phi', "A Doll's House," under
the title of "Nora's Return," is a very in
teresting figure in Bostouian life. Hoi
home is in the beautiful suburb of Jamaica
Plain, which is the old family reeidenco oi
the Ticknors and where Channing also
used to live. Mrs. Cheney's maiden name
was Edna Dow Littlehale. She was born
in Boston in 1824. In 1850 she married Seth
W. Cheney, an artist of local prominence,
who died three years Inter, leaving her
with one child, Margaret, who grew up to
be a gifted and beautiful young woman
and died some four years ago in all the
brilliant promise of her life. Miss Cheney
was one of tho few women admitted to
study at the Institute of Technology, of
which Gen. Francis J. Walker is president,
and her memory is preservod by the "Mar
garet Cheney Room," an apartment fnr
nished with articles closely as.vciat'-d with
her, and which is dominated by a fine por
trait of the lamented friend and pupil.
Mrs. Cheney's life has Ik-ch wholly de
voted to philosophic and literary research
and work. Her eariy womanhood ttbs
passed under the most stimulating influ
ences. She was a member of one of those
famous conversation classes which Marga
ret Fullermstituted in thedecadeof 1830-40,
when the "peerless Margaret" led a tran
scendental talk which m&de itself the
fashion of the hour in Boston. There was o
regenerative sort of gospel in the air. Thr
transcendentalists held that the earth
shculd educate and cultivate the soul, not j
the soul the earth Margaret Fuller held :
infinite faith in her own spiritual capacity '
and that of others. Idr. Channing said of
Margaret cherished a trust in her powers.
