and abaft the shaft, and she is a good one.
I don't blame Marsh Murdock for staying
with her. Of course she is spread over a
vast territory, a good deal of which is non
productive, but her inside is reality. It is
a busy mart worked by a busy people. The
owls and bats have shifted quarters and
gone to Leavenworth. The electric line
transportation is good and extending. As
is usual with people of great expec
tations, their eyes were like the
boy who gobbled onto ten apple
dumplings bigger than their stom
achs, but like the man who had been
worked by the three card monte game,
they have lots of experience. The dense
foliage of great big shade trees along the
sidewalks makes the way pleasant for the
pedestrians even at the noon hour.

The professor introduced his subject
with a little story to illustrate the blind

sad sight to see so many people who have
missed their calling. Men are found in

Actions denote characteristics. People
who "toe in" know it all. Those having

WERNEK AND XA"VT.
Emile Werner and John IsTaw, old time
friends, got into a little difficulty yester
day, which resulted more seriously than
was intended. The dispute arose about a
loan of 5."), and, during the heat of the
discussion, Werner's cane struck Naw's
head, inflicting a severe gash. They both
claim it was unintentional, although
neither of them knew exactly how it oc
curred. A warrant was sworn out and the
case will come before Judge Museller this
evening at 5 o'clock.
BIG PAVING CROP.
Mr. J. M. Thompson, of "Valley Center,
left at the EAGLE office, yesterday, a
sample of broom corn from his this year's
crop of about eighteen acres. Some of the
brush is full three feet long and the quality
the very finest. Mr. Thompson is confi
dent that he will harvest a qurter of a ton
per acre from the entire crop, and the
quality being the best he expects to get
the top price for it. If lie does it will pay
him $30 per acredouble what almost any
other crop would j-ield.
A PLEASANT GATHERING.
Last evening Mr. and Mrs. Will Collins
entertained a number of their jentlemen
friends at their pleasant rooms in the Stem
block. An elegant lunch was served, in
cluding all the good things to wit, and a
large bowl ornamented the center of the
table. Cards and a variety of amusements
went to make up a pleasant evening.
Amongst those present were: Messrs.
Harry Sheppard. W. S. Sheppard, W. A.
Smith. U. S. Hoagland, Captain I. W.

IN THE POIilCE COURT.
Yesterday morning Judge Keenan dis
pensed the police court justice, and in the
afternoon Judge Museller resumed his seat
again. The legal aspect of the case was
such that the commissioners would have
been somewhat perplexed had not Judge
Keenan handed in his resignation. The
commissioners met at 4 o'clock and ac
cepted Judge Keenan's resignation, which
virtually recinded the resolution declaring
the office vacant, and left Judge Museller
with jurisdiction. They then passed a res
olution declaring the office vacant in thirty
days. This seemed to compass the difficul
ties and be satisfactory to all parties and
relioves the case of all legal embarrass
ment. LOOKING FOR ltUKGIiAKS.
A young detectiva as yet unknown to
fame has been studying up the recent bur
glaries that have taken place in the north
part of the city. Although their depre
dations thus far have not been very alarm
ing they have been, to say the least, very
annoying. He claims to have a clew that
will lead to some arrests directly. A bunch
of keys that was found in Mr. Carlisle's
house, he thinks is a part of the same bunch
that was found in the rear of the Arcade.
Officer Dunbar says he has not seen the
keys, but he is pretty sure that there is no
connection between tho two. The men he
discovered were evidently novices, and dis
played very little judgment in everything
except in getting away and he attributes
that to their stupidit-.
A SII..VEK PI,ATE COMPANY" HEADED
Messrs. William Rogers' Silver Plate
company some time since entered into
negotiations for the establishment of a
branch house at Wichita. For some
reason the matter was postponed and by
many it was supposed to have beon drop
ped. The facts in the case are that they
simply wanted a location in the west and
before the negotiations were completed
their attention was drawn to Denver,
Omaha and possibly several other cities.
As often happens those who had the mat
ter in hand insisted upon the short sighted
policy of keeping everything dark. Those
who were directly interested in defeating
the location at Wichita of course knew it
while the general public was in ignorance.
This fact alone gave rise to suspicions in
the minds of their representatives which
of course proved to have no other grounds
and as a natural result a thorough canvass
of the west litis been made and Wichita
must stand on her merits.
It is now understood from .in authorita
tive source that Wichita has been decided
upon as the point for location and negotia
tions will le resumed again very shortly
with a good prospect of a satisfactory
A VISIT TO TUB HO.UK.
Yesterday a few friends paid a visit to
the Childrens' Home. It would have been
inconvenient for oue of them to visit the
home on Friday, the regular visiting day.
so the party depended upon the good na
ture of the matron. .Mr-. Crnic, to receive
them anyhow. Although it was uninten
tional and the fact wa not noted until
after the visit, an admirable opportunity
was had to see the inside workings of the
home, for the reason that the visit was
quite unexpected and at Jin unusual hour.
Everything was found in apple pie order
and the general arrangement and neatnes:
of fll 1,ome. wns commented upon in the
most complimentary manner. If the pub
lic generally would avail themselves of the
invitation extended to them to visit these
homeless little ones on Friday afternoons,
their sympathies could not fail to be
aroused, and the home would never want-
friends - much less a dollar. There were
1i"er cnnuren mere tnan usual yesieruay,
and several of them are al readv promised
good homes, but in a few days the- expect
to have to receive two families of small
children from two weeks old and upward.
The children very soon learn to
like the place and it seems hard, although
unavoidable, that they have to be removed
to the permanent homes provided for them,
and loarn the hard lesson ot parting at so
early an age. It is a long time before the
older ones forget their lirst place of refuge
and write long letters to what they term
their home, and want to know all the in
teresting particulars of their daily life.
After a glance at the neat reception
room and sleeping apartments adjoining,
the party was ushered into the nurser-.
Two little wee ones were playing about
the floor intensely interested in some game
which no oue but themselves understood,
but finding a great deal of enjoyment,
nevertheless. In r crib, surrounded by n
miscellaneous assortment of blocks and
trinkets, 'sat the autocrat of the home.
Having just been fed, he was vary quiet
and seemed to enjoy the homage paid him
bj" nil. Although only recently having ac
quired the art of sitting alone, he sat bolt
upright with pleasing a.vsurance. He has
one fault peculiar to one of his age, how
ever. He is in a league with the rooster
to get everyone up : daybreak.
As soon as night fall he drops off
quietly to sleep but he is awake by times
and insists upon having the bnstie of the
day legin. The other children, probably
eight- or ten of different ages, were playing
in a pile of sand under the shade of a tent
in the yard- Their main occupation at
the moment was a fruitless effort to bury
the cat. The good natural pussy hod put
..i .ui. t-j.i .. . !. '
up with this kind of treatment as long a&
her feline patience could stand it when a
cry from one of the smallest of the chil
dren and a hasty retreat of pnssy ander
the house put an end to the fun. The
little one who cried could not. talk vary
nlain litit mtmauad u aru!Mlat too
pussy had hit her. This was probably
true, yet no evidence of pussy's claws
could be found, and while searching for
this the little one forgot her troubles and
was ready again to join-in the building of
a castle in the sand. The children also
take quite an interest in the flower beds
and the garden generally; but if you want
to know anything more about these little
waifs go out and sed for yourself next
Friday from 9 to 5.

Rolla, Mo., August IS, IKK).
To the Editor of the Eagle.
If you want to know where I am, I'm in
Missouri. I left Wichita suddenly be
tween two days. That is, I left on the
10:40 d. ra. train on the Frisco, the night
after the golden wedding. You see, I ban
once made application for an appointment
to an important position, but was
graciously informed that there were forty
applicants for the place and that a man
had been selected to fill it, and that they
would see me later. Some time later I
was informed by the favored ones who
hold the fat places in the palms of their
hands that there were tAvo vacancies to fill
and I might have one of them, and I was
asked which one I should prefer. One of
them was plenopotentiary and envoy ex
traordinary to the court of St. Petersburg,
and the other was census enumerator of
the 3SSth district of the 4th supervisor's
district of Kansasas. I told them
1 had no choice in the matter,
that I felt as how I would be equally at
home in either place. I supposed there
might be a little difference in the compen
sation in the two places iu proportion to
the work required, but the compensation
cut no figure with me. All that I, its a
loj-al citizen, had a right to expect was a
federal appointment, and after considera
ble important correspondence with the
big muck-a-mucks I was finally assigned
the responsible and arduous position of
Ever since the completion of my labors
as enumerator myself and wife have been
racking our brains in an endeavor to de
vise some suitable means whereby we
might be able to squander the proceeds of
my unprecedented good fortune. First,
we thought of a trip to the mountains
where we might cut a splurge at Colorado
Springs or roam at our own sweet will in
the "Garden of the Gods." or drink in
tho disinfected atmosphere on the
dizzy summit of Pike's Peak.
Then, again, we thought of making the
tour of Europe and visiting tho different
points of interest, and especially such ro
mantic and historical places as Loch Kat
rine, Ben Lomond, Aberfoyle, and Glen
gyle, the home of my warlike and cattle
stealing ancestors. But, after much ma
ture deliberation, and taking an unpreju
diced view of circumstances as they exist,
we concluded to come here to Missouri and
livo with my wife's folks, and that's what
I'm doing at present.
I am soiourning in a peaceful vale in the
Ozark mountains, in the laud of butter
nuts, persimmons and pawpaws, far re
moved from political strifes or
religious animosities. My principle
occupation is roaming in the woods, com
muning with nature and getting ticks on
myself. I am living 011 the fat of the land;
I don't have to eat my Scotch oats for
breakfast with sky blue fluid from the city
dairyman. Aunt Josie serves up cream
and sugar with a lavish hand.
Crops are good and the people seem to be
in comfortable circumstances. But it is
difficult for a man who has lived twenty
years in the valley of the Arkansas to
comprehend how they manage to thrive
with such limited areas in cultivation.
After leaving here I will go to St. Louis
and take in the exposition. I will then
have to hurry back to Wichita to help
organize our fall party of colonists for
Topolobampo. William Ross.

"From Dondo we take it a foot fifty-one
miles over hills, mountains, and vales by
the old caravan trail of the ages to Nhau-
guepepo mission station. Our property
there is worth about $0000. It w.is de
signed to be a receiving station in which
new comers might be acclimatized, taught
native languages and prepared for advance
work. It has, however, become specially
a training school for native agency under
the leadership of one young man of our
first part j from America, Karl Rudolph.
We already have an organized Methodist
Episcopal church at this station composed
ot itnrteen converted men and boys who
are giving good proof of the genuineness of
the change wrought in them by the Holy
"The forenoon is devoted to manual
labor by all hands, then school and relig
ious exercises in the afternoon. The work
of each day is distributed; two of our boys,
called 'pastors.' have the aire of about 100
head of cattle belonging to the mission.
Several boys are taught to yoke and work
oxen in sled or plow; several boys have
learned to be stone masons, and when I
was there last were engaged in building a
stone wall around the cattle corral. One
boy is trained to business in the little
store belonging to the mission. One very
trusty fellow is the man-of-all-work about
the house and the cook. All these varieties
of work are done by our own converted
people, and not by heathen hirelings.
This station yields ample sustenance for
all these workers, and is making improve
ments continually and paying for them
out of their net profits." Bishop Taylor

St. Louis Globe-Deniocrat: About eigh
teen years ago, in the city of Buffalo. N.
V., tnere was a concert given ior tne uene
fit of the poor of the city. Among the vol
unteers to sing was a curly black-haired
boy, a mere youngster. He was put down
for a son:;, and the one he chose was called
"Daisy Dell." After that concert, the
boy's fame was mode; he was the hero of
the evening. He immediately took to the
stace, and was afterwards known as the
"Boy Phenomenon." He has since grown
to manhood, has changed some in looks,
but has still that black curly head, and his
voice still retains its old sweetness. He is
none other than Mr. Pete Baker, the well
known comedian, who opens at Pope's to
