in most cities have
sprung up gradual

so ou and it is safe to say that the failures
compared with success have been two to
one. In Wichita they have commenced
business at the rate of two or three hun
dred a year aud it is an encouraging fact
that it is very seldom a failure is recorded.
The rapid growth of Wichita as a distrib
uting point has effected all departments of
trade aud has naturally forced many retail
merchants into a jobbing trade that has
rapidly grown until it has astonished even
themselves. The vast territory west and
south looks to Wichita as a distributing
point and this constant demand has made
many of the merchants rustle. It is
a commonthing to hear that merchants
have to rustle for business but it is left
for Wichita to furnish an instance
where the merchants had to rustle to take

care of the business that came to them
without any effort of their part. Without
exception, however, this trade has been
taken care of and none of it allowed to
escape, and the enterprise of the Wichita
merchants has been equal to the emergency.
In speaking of this matter yesterday Mr.
Henry Schad said that he located in Wich
ita four years ago because he recognized
that there was an opening for harness and
saddlery and could clearly see that tho fu
ture promised enlargement of the al
ready promising field, but he never sup
posed for a moment that the increase in
his trade would be so fast and enormous.
He had also noticed with pleasure that his
line of business was not the only one
which was reaping a rich harvest, and it
was with a great deal of satisfaction that
he made up his mind to enlarge from time
to time and take care of the trade that
came to him with scarcely any solicitation.
He had opened up on a scale that was in
keeping with the trade which was in
sight aud being conservative had only
enlarged his factory as there was
actual demand for it. He considered a
comparison of his business from month to
month was a pretty fair estimate of the
proportionate growth of the entire city as
time had advanced. Such a comparison
was very gratifying to him aud there was
no good reason why similar comparisons
could not be made with as satisfactory re
sults in almost every business in the city.
Mr. Schad was a harness maker in War
saw, 111., for fifteen years and his practical
knowledge of tho details of the business
CASE OF TURF GOODS,
has been one of his greatest aids to snecoss
and has given his harness a reputation
that enables it to compete in quality and
prices with any manufactory in the west.
This experience and the high grade of
labor he employed naturally made his fine
harness a feature of his trade and uncon
sciously the higher priced class of harness
became a kind of specialty. It is jut
four years since the white horse, his trade
mark, first took its position in front of his
'establishment 105 West Douglas. If ever
a horse was well cared for this one is in
tho summer time he is covered with a
handsome fly net and such ornrmental
trappings as add to the comfort of an
animal aud during the cold blasts of
winter a soft wool blaiiket enables him
to defy all chilling draught. Reference
of anv length could scarcely be made to
Mr. Schad's business without mentioning

the white horse which is his trade mark
and is always associated in the mind with
anything appertaining to his business.
The factory is on the south side of West
Douglas avenue and is 25x73 feet, built of
brick and two stories high. The front of
the ground floor is used for a show room
and salesroom, while the rear is the repair
department. The regular workshop is up
stairs, where all of the latest improved
machinery is brought into play when its
work is equal to hand work. A new
stitcher which does the work of seven men
is an object of interest and quite a curios
ity. The nicetj- of its work is pronounced
equal to hand made in durability, whiie its
eveness and regularity is perfectly uni
form. Ten men are employed in the work
shop the year round, and with tneir pres
ent facilities about 100 sets of harness can
be turned out annually In spite of this
enormous production a glass show case
about twenty-five feet long and ten wide is
large enough to hold all the harness kept
in stock. Next year it is proposed to en
large the entire establishment again as at
present it is forced to work to its full ca
pacity, and the increase of trade which an
other year promises will be embarrassing.
Several traveling men will go out another
season to cover a still more extended ter
ritory, and this feature of the trade made
a separate branch. Mr. Schad claims to
have had the lead in the city trade for a
long time and the qualtity and finish of
his harness seems to warrant him in this
belief. The harness show case occupies
the west front of the ground floor is quite
an interesting sight. At present it contains

all know the quality of this line. Every
conceivable thing that is incidental to the
business or can be called for is carried in
stock in qualities to suit all orders.
Every piece of work turned out in the
factory is subject to the closest scrutiny
by Mr. Schad personally and thus his har
ness has never been known to give dissat
isfaction. His long experience enables
him to avoid any material that is not up
to the mark and his policy is that the best
is the cheapest for both himself and the
consumer. The establishment is well
ordered and everything about it is ar
ranged according to the method that is
THE COUNTY" NOltJIAU
The Sedgwick County Normal Institute
opened yesterday morning in the Lewis
academy with the most flattering pros
pects of any institute that has yet been
held in Sedgwick county, there being a
much larger attendance for the first day
than in any previous year.
The large assembly of teachers was
called together at S:40 in the large audi
torium of the academy, and the first ex
ercises consisted of scripture reading and
prayer by Prof. Naylor, after which Super
intendent Pence extended a hearty greet
ing to the teachers, and addressed them
briefly and to the point about the purpose
for which they had come together, and
gave them many valuable hints as to how
they should best improve the time and
make the institute a success.
The popular conductor, Prof. J. M. Nay
lor, was then introduced, and gave an elo
quent and glowing account of the prepara
tion a teacher should make for his import
ant work, and showed the benefits that
could be derived from faithful work and
earnest endeavor at the Normal institute.
The corps of instructors are eminently
qualified for the positions they fill, and
are exceedingly popular with the teachers,
and County Superintendent Pence deserves
due ciedit for tho wise choice he has made.
Prof. H. W. Charles is the oracle who has
charge of reading, bookkeeping, grammar,
and the efficient work he did last year is
the best intimation as to what will be his
success this year.
Prof. J. C. South is thoroughly con
versant with his subjects georgraph phy
siology and writing, and with the energy,
scholarship and enthusiasm fpr which he
is noted, his classes cannot fail to occupy
the front rank.
Prof. R. S. Lawrence has charge of
calisthenics, arithmetic and constitution,
and to judge by beginnings, he is master of
the situation and will be a popular and
Something new iu the institute is the
primary department, under the charge of
Miss Bryson, who is one of the most suc
cessful of the citv teachers. Miss Biyson
has charge of primary reading and ortho
graphy, and gives most excellent instruc
tion in regard to teaching beginners how
to read, and likewise to spell and pro
nounce. Everyone in attendance at the normal
seems full of enthusiam and energy, and
the teachers are just warming up
to faithful earnest work. The rooms
in the academy are most pleasant
ones, and the four weeks will
be weeks of pleasure as well
as of profit. The classes were all organized
and good lessons were heard, and the first
day passed off pleasantly, all the teachers
present feeling that it was a good begin
It was noticable that the number of
young teachers is far in excess of any pre
The funny man of the institute was not
there yesterday, so there are no jokes to
day about the "survival of the fittest" etc.
The teachers all feel thankful for the
pleasant location of the Lewis academy
nnd think it is just the place for the nor
mal. There are many new faces among the at
tendants this year, and doubtless when all
the "old standbys" return Sedgwick
county will again have the banner insti
tute of the state. Such are the prospects
and such will lie result the grandest,
best and most profitable institute of Kan
sas will be right here iu Sedgwick county.
THE CHJLBKEVi JIOM.E CAME JN HANDY
Yesterday evening just before dark a
man having the appearance of an honest
laborer came into the police court, carry
ing in his arms a little girl probably not 3
years of age. He laid his burden down on
one of the seats, using a buudle which he
had as a pillow, and asked to oe directed
to the Childrens home. He gave his name
as Michael Graham and said he had just
arrived from Argonia, telling a strange
story. A continuous family broil, which
was no recent affair, decided him in leav
ing home, and his wife's weakness
for strong drink made it advisable for
him to take the child. He found himself
in a strange city with very little money
and a child in his care which would cer
tainly be taken sick if not placed where it
could have proper nourishment immedi
ately. Through the kindness of the police
he was directed to Agent Aspey, who got
the little one in the home for the present.
She is a sweet little thing and cried piti
fully when separated from her father.
Mrs. Craig ordered a warm bath for her

HOGS, HOGS, HOGS.
Forty-One Honored and Ten On the Wichita
Yesterday was certainly a record break
er by several hundred hogs at the Wich
ita union stock yards. They just poured
in from every direction and on every train,
from early morning until after the market
closed at night. Every body connected
with the yards took the heavy ruu in a
matter of fact sort of a way, as the supply
of hogs on this market during the past
few months has been so far in advance of
the hopes of the most sanguine that it
makes little difference how fast the sup
ply increases, they think it is as it should
be, and manage to take care of the hog3
in good shape and find a market for them
without the least bit of excitement.
Who says now, that the new; live stock
market of the southwest is 'not a sure
winner? Just watch her for about one
year longer, and see her take front place
among the great live stock markets of the
world. The wonderful and rapid increace
and growth of this market is attracting a
great deal of attention from the great
packers of Chicago, Kansas City and
Omaha, and it is safe to say that if this
wonderful increase and growth continues,
that July 1, 1S91, will see two or three
more large packing plants in successful

CHILDREN'S HOME SPEAKS.
Will the mothers of Wichita please spare
some of their half worn calico dresses to
be made over for the girls at the Children's
home? We have taken iu three girls, 4, 10
and 12 years of age, who are destitute, and
since the first of May, 1S90, have sent out
twenty-three children. With all of these
we send a change of clothing, so our stock
of garments is quite reduced. Anythiug
will be acceptable, and can be sent to the

A COUNTERFEITER JAILED.
Sheriff W. Lyttle, County No. Three,
Oklahoma, who brought up one of the
counterfeiters lately apprehended and
bound over, called yesterday after seeing
his prisoner safely locked up in tho Sedg
wick bastile. Sheriff Lyttle exhibited to
us some of the bogus siiver dollars with
which some of the towns in Oklahoma
were flooded. The work is rather poor, but
one man at Gutdrie got eight of them in
one day. Mr. Lyttle says that outside of
the Chickasaw nation the crop prospect in
Oklahoma is exceedingly discouraging and
that the Chickasaw country will not make
more thin a half crop. It has been both
hot and dry, but the people know that
they have a good country aud a good soil
and are hopeful.
CHANCE FOR JJENEVOLENCE.
There are so few cases of real destitution
in this city that a case now and ttien it
seems should be looked after. Mr. O. C.
Daisy yesterday received a note from .Mrs
Thornton, 937 North Market street, and
although it was evident from the contents
the letter was not intended for him he aud
his wife paid her a -visit and found that
she was really in need of assistance. She
is very low with consumption and her
only company is an aged father and
mother. Pride kept her from ask
ing assi-tance until the case
was desperate, when she wrote to
Mr. Daisy, confounding the name
with Basley which she had heard men
tioned in connection with the benevolent
home. Mr. Daisy gave her $5 just to set
a good example and suggests that the
benevolent ladies of the city take it upon
themselves to investigate the matter at

Mr. C. T. Champion received a dispatch
yesterday announcing the death of T. IL
Robinson at Dallas, Texas, of typhoid
malarial fever. Mr. Robinson was form
erly a partner of Mr. Champion's in the
stationery and book trade aud was well
known in this city a3 an energetic young
business man of much promise. He came
to this city with Mr. Robinson, from
Tennessee, three or four years ago, leaving
for Dallas but a few mouths siuce. The
news of his unexpected death will startle
many and be received with general regret.
He was 27 years of age, a native of Shef
field, England, where his parents reside.
He has also several brothers aud sisters
who are at home. He came to New York
bix years ago, where ho has relatives, to
seek his fortunes in America, and after
remaining there a short timo came to
Knoxville, Tenn., where he also has re
latives, and located in business. A little
more than two years ago he and Mr.
Champion located iu Wichita, when his
energetic business ways brought him into
notice. About six months since ho opened
up a business in Dallas, Texas. Duriug
the early part of this month he made a
trip through southern Texas, where he
contracted typhoid malaria and has since
been under the physician's care. It was
not generally supposed among his friends
that his symptoms were alarming, and it
was therefore with much surprise that
Mr. Champion received a telegram yester
