ANOTHER LITTLE ANGEIi HAS JOINED
To the Editor of the Eagle.
Little Howard, son of Mr. and Mrs. How

1890. These lines are inscribed to the
grief stricken parents and grandparents by
a sympathizing friend:
Sweet little Howard has fallen asleep,
Lulled by the angels in Paradise.
There's another bright star in the blue aznre deep
Another pure soul llown far o'er the skies.
Another 'white flower is blooming above
All fadeless and perfect. Oh, little love!
Another sweel face where bright angels are.
Is peeping at mamma behind a gold star.
Another little bed is empty tonight.
Unruffled In silence, all purely white.
Another heart's breaking in borrow so deep.
Dear little Howard has fallen asleep.
Somebody's clasping a half broken toy,
Jlanima ia calling her dear little boy.
Two little eyes have been closed from the bright
Of earth's fleeting beautv and heaven's more bright
Two little hands are folded for aye.
Two more little wings fly over the sky,
Two little feet are lain side by side
In sweet, peaceful rest, and papa's own pride.
His dear little boy. has flown o"er the blue.
Where sktes are all cloudless and hearts are all true
Another little mound in the graveyard today,
A sweet, nreelous hov Is rnv laid mvv
Look heavenward, mother, pray to your God
While your heart In its sorrowful grief has been

SECOND DAY AT THE NORMAL.
The teachers were all on hand bright and
early yesterday morning ready to do an
other day's vigorous work at the county
normal institute. The morning devotional
exercises were conducted in a very impres
sive manner, and at 9 o'clock everything
was in readiness for the regular work of
The classes are now thoroughly organ
ized and are doing the best possible work.
The early morning classes are very popular
with the teachers who are early risers, and
the majority of the teachers seem to be. It
is a very pleasant thing to get up at 0
o'clock when it is cool and come down to
institute to recite calesthenics to Prof.
Lawrence, or reading to Prof. Charles.
Prof. Lawrence evidently believes in
"physical culture," and it was a wise pro
vision on his part to have the class in calis
thenics as near C o'clock in the morning as
possible, in order to exercise while it is
Prof. South had a rather
"bony" subject in physiology yes
terday morning, discoursing upon the
structure of bones, the classes of bones,
and also the structure and classification of
joints. His class is full of enthusiasm and
interest, and is already doing cood faith
Prof. Xaylor is quite at home in natural
philosophy, and, in fact, everything else
for that matter, and it was a treat to hear
the interesting and valuable facts, theories
and truths he elicited from his class of
teachers, about the properties of matter,
the laws of gravitation, velocity of bodies,
etc, and words of learned length and rules
of thundering sound were given in de
scribing tho variation of velocity and
weight according to distance, etc.
Prof. Charles was busy in his gram
mar classes wrestling with the
noun and pronoun, subject and
predicate and other grammatical enigmas
of a similar abstrues nature. It was a
very interesting sight to watch Miss Bry
son conduct the class in orthoepy and or
thography. She is mistress of the situa
tion and is thoroughly conversant with
the subject, and presents it in such a way
as to be impressive and interesting. The
lesson yesterday morning was devoted to
the relation of orthography to grammar,
and some time w;is devoted to a discussion
of the common errors in articulation, en
unciation and pronunciation. All this
time Prof. Pence, the worthy county
superintendent, was not idle, but was the
busiest of the busy, enrolling names, tak
ing the necessary dollars, giving advice
and instructions to a dozen at once,
and visiting the different departments,
and assisting in every way to get every
thing in good running order. The normal
is graded and classified into different de
partments making it valuable to both ex
perienced teachers and beginners the ex
perienced teachers can have some time for
discussing methods and theories, while the
beginners are given the most practical
work in methods of instruction and how
to present subjects to tho pupils for the
This is quite a valuable training school
and new teachers can not afford to miss a
day. So far all is well.
The teachers are going to have a social
and reunion Friday evening of this week
at tho academy building. All are wel
come. Prof. Pence's usual happy countenance
is wreathed in smiles over the good pros
pects for tin unusually successful insti
tute. The social committee will spare no
pains to make it a success. They will pre
pare a short program and after that is
over tho re-t of the evening will be de
voted to conversation and getting ac
quainted. The Sedgwick county teachers are noted
for sociability and this year promises to
exceed all others in tho way of picnics,
etc. So let it be.
Quito a number of the city teachers
were present yesterday morning. They
are welcome and must remember that
Wichita is a part of Sedgwick county.
To the visitors who were present an in
vitation is given to come again and stay as
long as you please.
A general interest is manifested by the
teachers in good publications and man j are
subscribing to the best papers having a
bearing on institute work.
Arrangements have been made for some
fine lectures on pertinent subjects next
week, of which moro will be said later.
A grand entertainment is to be given at
the close of the course, and the proceeds
will be devoted to the purchase of a gooil
library for the teachers. The book cases
are already in sight and the books are just
beyond the horizon. They will come in
very bandy for the use of the reading
The attendance yesterday was upwards
of 100; what is the objection to making
AT TJIE H031F,
The Childrens' Homo is in need of some
clothing, and although some has been con
tributed they want more. There is not a
lady in the city but knows exactly what is
wanted, and could send somo if she would
take the trouble. There are certain days
in the week whon visitors are expected at
the home, and the gentlemen are partic
ularly invited to avail themselves of this
opportunity to see the children. Don't go
out there if you dou't want to help to sup
port tho home, and scarcely a week passes
that an opportunity is not offered to do
something for it. If you once get a look
at these children and have any heart your
pockotbook is at their service henceforth.
A gentleman said the other day that he
would like to do something for the home
but he was not able to do much and no
one had ever asked him to do anyth ng.
Go out to the home on visitors day and
Mrs. Foster will leave some brick books
there. You can buy one brick for 10 cents
or one book for S2.S0 or ten books if you
wish at t hat rate.
Mrs. Craig has amongst her charges a
very fine baby of nine months and he is a
great judge of human nature a sort of hu-
man thermometer. As soon a stranger
takes him he puts- up his chubby little
hands one on each cheek and looks entently
in his eyes and soon finds a verdict.
If the stranger is fond of children and has
his sympathies aroused by the sight of
them the little fellow's countenance fairly
beams in a smile that seems to throw a halo
about the room and envelopes one in a
luminous atmosphere. If the verdict is
otherwise he will shrink from the stranger
and if not relinquished immediately of
course will cry. He is never known to be
mistaken in an individual and the rough
est exterior or the most insinuating smile
can not deceive his strong sympathetic
nature. This may be a hard ordeal for a
man, but if he can not stand the test suc
cessfully he had better go and ask the
all merciful God to change his
disposition. In a very short time an en
largement of the home will be absolutely
necessory, and it is to be hoped that the
building fund will soon assume such
proportions as will justify the board in
locating the new home. The Humane
society find themselvessadly in need of an
industrial school, and an effort will be
made to build and establish both at the
A GRAND OPENING.
Emporia Avenue M. E. church inaugura
ted another series of their popular enter
tainments last night with an open air con
cert and lawn festival in front of the
church. It was the grandest success of
the season. The committee on entertain
ment had provided for a large number,
but the crowd was so great that it was
impossible to accommodate them all.
Nearly a thousand people were gathered
on that lawn during the evening. There
never was a more delightful evening for
such an occasion. In the fore part of the
evening a short program was rendered,
consisting of music by Willhaupt's orches
tra, the Townsend quartette club,
the Haven-Grabam quartette club,
and two choice recitations by Miss
Mabel Moore. This rising young
elocutionist, who, though quite
young, is one of the most popular elocu
tionists in our city, was expected to recite
one of her humorous pieces, and it was this
expected treat largely that drew the great
crowd, but the people would not be con
tente! with one piece, and at their urgent
request Miss Moore rendered another, win
ning great applause.
The young ladies composing Joe H.
Lindsey's class, numbering about a dozen,
were designated to wait on the tables dur
ing the evening, but the job was so great
that the force had to be increased. They
were all dressed in white dresses, with
black aprons and caps and were really or
namental as well as useful.
At least twenty-five gallons of ice cream
would have been used on this occasion
had it been on hand in time. The com
mittee regret their inability to accommo
date all present, but they were taken by
surprise by the immense gathering, and of
course due allowance was made for them.
If this entertainment is to be taken as
an omen of the success of those that arc to
follow at regular intervals, the public
may look for some rich treats in this di
rection during the season which was so
auspiciously opened last night.
J IOW TO GET AN OUTING FREE.
There is a general complaint amongst
the ladies at the sea side resorts on account
of the scarcity of young men and the hotel
men are afraid their next season's busi
ness will suffer unless the deficency is
made good. The' have made a compact
with some of tho ladies and clubs are be
ing formed to remedy t e matter before
the season closes. No attempt will be
made to draw the eastern dudes to the re
sorts but the objects of the clubs is to give
the young men of the west an opportunity
for a summer's outing free of expense and
a chance to capture an heiress. The hotels
and the ladies between them have
raised a fund which Avill de
fray all expenses of club members
lor a month or six weeks. All the require
ments for membership are a good moral
character and a good wardrobe. There
will be arrangements made whereby the
members will be known and no imposition
can be practiced on the hotels, aud at the
same time not to prove embarrassing to
the young men.
Several years ago the hotels found the
same state of affairs, and as a natural
consequence it was almost impossible to
get any ladies at the sea side reports the
next s ason. This year they propose to
guard against this if possible and at the
same time excite the jealousy of the young
men of the east. All cities of importance
in the west will have an agent represent
ing the scheme and all application for
membership must be made to him. He
will also furnish all necessary information
to suitable parties. Mr. II. L. Pierce,
secretary of t he board of trade, will be the
agent at Wichita.
A GREAT TRAVELER ON AVICHITA.
Rev. S. Sherbernc Mathews, formerly
pastor of a Congregational church in
Wichita, called yesterday. Mr. Mathews
is again making Boston his home, being
a secretary of one of the benevolent socie
ties of the Congregational church. He is
now out on a tour of inspection of the mis
sionary schools of New and Old Mexico,
Utah and Arizona, which work will kop
him traveling till late in the fall. Mr.
Mathews says that when he stepped from
the train and got fairly onto Douglas ave
nue the old conviction came back to him
that here is the air, the spirit, the life of a
coming great city- He says in all his
travels, and he traveled 100,000 miles last
year, he finds few places of the promi
nence of Wichita. Whatever may be said
of speculative properties within her bound
aries, the brick and the mortar, tho people
and the business are here, and all of the
character of tho genuine center and me
tropolis. Men in various sections of the
country who have never been in Wichita,
or who have made up in their minds a
gloomy picture of her status from rending
outside lies and criticisms, have only to
come and see her to be convinced that she
was never so solid and substantial as she
is today. However prejudiced he may be,
no man with an eye for business can spend
a week or day in Wichita and fail of being
convinced that touching her future there
can be no question.
Frances Umburger. wife of Deacon C.
H. Umburger, of the Pleasant View Bap
tist church, Grant township, Sedgwich

WHAT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN WORTH.
Judge Amos Harris is a believer in the
theory of producing rains by artificial or
human agencies. He cited yesterday an
instance of his boyhood experience where,
in an eastern state, at the suggestion of a
man who had been brought up as an In
dian captive, and during a time of extreme
drouth, by the farmers firing simultane
ously the drift accumulations of a small
river or creek for the distance of twenty
miles or more, a copious rainfall was pro
duced, or at least it followed within a few
hours after the fires were started. A good
rain ten or twelve days ago would have
been worth to the corn crop of Sedgwick
county a million or more dollars. If the
burning or explosion of ten or twenty
thousand dollars worth of powder would
have produced such a rain throughout the
county the gain or profit of such expendi
ture would have been, as we said, worth a
million or more of dollars.
STREET KAIliWAY NOTES.
The electric cars are expected to be run
ning south on Main street on schedule
time on Saturday, and west on Douglas at
the same time. Five new cars are ready
for shipment from the shops and their ar
rival will greatly increase the service.
A short service is to be put on from the
depots on Douglas to Oak street and Main,
and these cars will run between the time
of the College Hill and Garfield University
lines, thus affording double .'ervice on the
busy portions of Main and Douglas.
The power house is being rushed rapidly
to completion. The engine house is roofed
over and the foundations are ready for the
engines- The boilers are being set and a
few more days will make a wonderful
change in the present appearance of things.
The Riverside line is now running down
Main street on its regular time.
Mrs. Kramer's house on Topeka avenue
was entered by thieves who stole a lady's
chain and 1S in money. None of tho
articles have been recovered yet, although
the police are working up a clue.
A friend of Mrs. Weitzell also lost sev
eral valuable diamonds and as yet no
trace ot them has been discovered.
Presumably the same gang of thieves
entered a residence on Lawrence avenue
yesterday occupied by a colored family
and stole two watches, one gold and one
silver. The gold watch has been recov
ered, but the silver one is still missing.

on Mr. Thomas Newcomb, of YAoo North
Main street, last evening. A host of his
friends, young and old, just took him by

Mr. M. J. Fanning, representing the

Michael Davis, a young colored boy, was
caught yesterday in the act of stealing the

so much as they did the loss of their

Wichita people are more scattered this
summer than ever before. They maybe

AT THE GARFIELD HALL.
Miss Flavin will lecturo on Sunday eve
ning at tiie Garfield hall on "Father
Damien the Leper Priest." When Father
Damien went to Molokai the whole world
hailed him as a hero. When Sister Rosa
Gertrude followed in his illustrous foot
steps unmeasured praise was also lavished
upon her. Miss Katherine Marsden, of
Boston, has recently taken her life in her
hands and gone to Russia to do what she
can to emeliorato the condition of tho
lepers in that country. So much has been
written and said of this dread disease that
it is not strange that an unusual interest
is awakened in tho lecture to be delivered
by Miss Flavin. Her ability as a pleasant
and forcible speaker justifies the expecta
tion of an evening profitably and pleas
antly spent. Those desiring good seats
would do well to look after the matter at
There will be a grand Sunday school
picnic at Haysville, (eight miles south of

good singing, good speaking and a general
good time for all. D. M'Cokmier,

one of some half dozen suburban places
near by tho metropolis of the Pacifio
Tho city of Alameda lios across the
bay from this city, and covers a penin
sula about four miles long by an average
width of one milo Along either eido of
tho city is a deep channel of salt water.
Ona side ends abruptly on a hluft eome
twenty feet above high tide, and shades
off into a sand shoal at low tide, afford
ing an excellent bathing beach at high
tide and a fruitful oyster and clam shoal
at low tide The other sido of the city
shades off into a lowland or salt marsh
to a shallower arm of the bay, which is
"being dredged into a channel for heavy
draft vessals. When this ship canal is
completed the city will be cat off to
form an island, having a ship channel
around its entire area.
The population is now about 11,000,
and ita streets and avenues are models of
neatness and f-mriixering tasi. There
are miles on miles of wide, smooth, arti

But the most striking featuro of Ala
meda to the student of sociology i ita
non-partisan municipal policy. Hero,
indeed, party politics is ignored, and
men are ohosen for their fitness and
not for party or personal advantage.
Tho schools, the police and the sanitary
interests of tho place are looked after by
the best men of tho city regardless of
political affiliations. Tho nominating
conventions are a novelty. Tho last one
was called to order by the president of
the Democratic club, and tho permanent
chairman was the president of tho Re
publican club. Tho secretariea wero the
scribes to tha respective party commit
tees and the vice presidents included
the American party, and I believe also
tho Prohibitionists were not overlooked.
In this respect I do not know of any mu
nicipal or civil organization in this coun

It is not necessary to add that a mere
handful of policemen aro to bo seen,
and thoy liavo but little to do.
Tho worst features of tho placo aro the
gophers, which plow up tho cultivated
lawns, and tho fleiis, which render lifo n
burden to tho women and children.
Naturo has hcon lavish in her gifts, and
art has been called upon freely, making
Alameda a delight to tho eyo and a
comfoit to the lover of a quiet and
beautiful home. In driving through

through corn fields, and soon tho spray

green lawnu and cultivated flowers.
The growth of Alameda has been com
paratively eIow but steady, and the
space being limited, it never will be
moro than a quiet, delightful, sleeping
camp for the busy clerks and buxinc&i
