hustle around and attend to business and
no one doos anything but figure on getting
in a cool spot and hence it is considered a
delightful country by fellows who have
lived in countries where they wre ex
pected to attend to business all the time.

noted with pleasure the interest the young

is expected that largo accessions to the
church will be made in this direction.
The seemingly universal request of those
who attended the organ recital Wednes
day evening, at the First M. E. church,
given by Professor Taft, to have him re
peat it, induced tne committee to request
him to do so, and he will appear again
this evening with a new program. Those
who missed this musical feast can have an
opportunity this evening. Tickets only
23 cents; children 15 cents.
THE LUNCH THIS EVENING.
The public is earnestly requested not to
forget the lunch which the Woman's Re
lief Corps will set from 5 till 7 o'clock this
evening in the vacant room next to the
telegraph office in the Sedgwick block
There was never an effort made in a worth
iercaube. Let the ladies gather enouirh
shekels to savo tho little home to the
mother and children.
Ladies are expected to have their contri
butions on hand by 3 o'clock.
ACTIVITY IN CIGARS.
Mr. J. P. Allen, reading the notice in
the Eagle yesterday morning about his
beiug 52 years old and inviting his friends
to have a cigar with him, said that the
fact had reached print just as he had in
tended it, and proceeded to hasten to the
front end of his drug store. Tho boys
were on hand promptly for their after
breakfast smoke, and the best in the mar
ket were ready. They went out at a lively
rate, and all day yesterday the Allen es
tablishment did an extensive cigar busi
ness. Last evening twenty-five or thirty of tho
Kniuht Templar friends called at Mr.
Allen's residence and a couple of hours
were spent most pleasantly.
OKE FOR TOI'EICA.
Quito a number left Inst evening for
Topoka to see President Harrison and at
tend the rounion. The Bock Island pro
vided a special car for the extra rush and
it was partiaily occupied by Caldwell and
The railroads yesterday reported quito a
good business from the southwest carry
ing people to the leunion. Along the
Santa Fe main line there was quite a rush,
also from the south many coming up from
the Oklahoma country. They seemed to
think that things would be lively in
Topeka for a day, da- and a half or two
days when the town would again be empt y
and tho hotels would commence to figure
on some other attraction that would stand
double rates for limited accommodations.
ANOTHER CLOCK SIGN.
Soino time ago Mr. Ed. Vail was notified
that the clock for the new county building
had arrived, but it proved to be a false
alarm. The next thing authentic on tho
subject, a man arrived to place the clock
in the tower. He put in an appearance
yesterday but so far the clock has not been
reported at any depot. It has been on t lie
roml two weeks and supposed to be coming
slowly, not having arrived by this time. It
has been suggested that possibly some
Kansas City outfit had xemoved it from
the car and the clock could now be -ecu
measuring time in some building in Kan
sas City. It is believed they would look
angry to see such clever city indications
coining into Kansas. They might through
jealously conclude to capture it for service
and safe keeping.
A ITER PINE HOKbliS.
Mr. Samuel To! by of Houston, Tex., a
bu.-iness man there, is spending a few days
iu the city. He is not exactly crazy on
fast homes but is a lover of speed and
makes tho trip up into Kansas fora couple
of fine horses. He observed the other day
that Kansas horses were making a mile
the same day they started and, for some
time, he has been attracted by the Kansas
horses, and says he would rather have a
lino horse from Kansas than from Ken
tucky, owing to tho climatic conditions of
Kansas and Texas being more alike than
Texas and Kentucky. Ho will spend a
day at the Toler farm, also a day at the
Jowett farm, and hopes to bo able to find
iust the turnout he is looking for. Should
lie be suited, he says he knows of a num
ber of others in his citv. who ill also
place big money in fine driving horses.
CONCERT THIS' EVENING.
The succoss attained by Mr Frank Taft
at the First M. E. church Wednesday even
ing, has prompted the committee to per
fect arrangements for another concert to
be given this (Friday) evening. Mr. Taft
will be assisted by Miss Annie C. Reel and
and Mr. Robert Smythe, two of Wichita's
favonto vocalists, who will undoubtedly
be listened to with much pleasure by their
many admirers in this city. The follow
ing program will be presented:

L nder Mr. Taft's manipulation theorgan
becomes an m-trument of unlimited tonal
effect, and the artistic contrasts in the
"tone couleur" he employs gives his play
ing a peculiar charm that is delightful.
The wonderful magnetism that emulates
trom his clever treatment of the organ
wins the immediate attention of his nudi
euce, who follow his various moods, as his
fancy may dictate. Now all is life and
activity and the verv soul is stirred by the
martial strains, but in an in-tant all is
calm and repose and as the plaintive tones
sing their sons of devotion the listenor is
carried to some scene of eatiy childhood
whoreby the most tender associations
arie and inspire a true and noble purpose
iu life's battle. Technical difficulties are
seemingly unknown and the ease and pre
cision with which he masters the intricate
passages iu the various scores is astonish
ing. Through this, uneonscious of exist
ing difficulties, Mr. Taft is able to give his
entire attention to the "artistic or true
meaning of the printed notes, and thus
the compot-er's original meaning is por
trayed in the truest and most striking
light. It has often and truly been said
that Frank Taft is the "Patti" of the or
A FAIU FOR THE SUUTH WEST.
There was some talk yesterday about
organizing a fair association with financial
ability to go at the business with an assur
ance of being able to meet obligations no
matter what happened. The recent exper
ience was such as to inspire confidence on
outlook for a district fair. For every dol
lar invested by the present association the
surplus, after meeting all obligations,
shows $149. This is thought to be a rather
clever and profitable investment. It is not
known yet whether the present association
will declare a dividend and reorganize
completely anew, or whether those having
an interest in the present association will
take stock in a new association and place
in it the money already made in
the fair business as a starter.
The stockholders expect to hold a meet
ing soon and determined what action will
be best suited to the situation and circum
stances. All seem quite anxious to pro
ceed in some way to getting up a strong
association. Some favor the whole matter
being placed in the hands of a few and
others think it should be a stock company
covering the great southwest. It is in
sisted that in this many more people would
be directly interested nd more influence
would be secured as a foundation upon
which to make a great success for south
It is believed the great southwest is
quite able to support and maintain a big
annual fair. There is enough territory, it
is rich enough and everything, it is argued,
insists on having a fetrong association at
some point reached most easily by the
people interested. One phenominal suc
cess has been scored at Wichita and this
is supposed to clear up all doubts for the
future on this question. It is believed a
united effort will be made resulting as no
one doubts in contined success.
THE FINISHING TOUCHES.
It is though that by the middle of the
week the work of putting in tho small
pipes for flushing the east main of the
sewer system will be completed. The en
tire neework of meet the demands of tho
eastern flush tanks is 14,509 feet long.
This is being put in at a cost of about
All the right-of-way has not been se
cured for the laterals; so far nearly one
half mile not completed. The contractors
could have had all that work done six
mouths ago had the council furnished the
right-of-way. Tho delay is traceable baek
to a few property owners who have persist
ently insisted upon fabulous prices or
wanted tho city to do something extraor
dinary for their bonefit. The compromise
with "Yankee Miller" after the suit was
practically won has not reached the point
to allow the main put in. Work com
menced yesterday putting in the delayed
laterals near Water and Lewis streets. It
is supposed that within tho next four or
five months tho right-of-way will be se
cured and the laterals put down. In the
meantime tho contractors are going over
the entire sj'stem, cleaning it out. As the
work proceeds the city engineer inspects
it. So far this work has covered tho two
west mains north of Douglas avenue.
While doing this the flush tanks are ar
ranged to give surface, and so far eighty
have been reached. The entire system
calls for 270 tanks and it is thought tho
work of inspection will require three or
four weeks yet.
CONCERNING CITY SCHOOLS.
Tomorrow is pay day with tho city
teachers. Clerk Fegtly was making out
the checks yesterday, and the total amount
that will be paid out shows $."5,910.
The high school building will probably
be ready to occupy by tho first of next
month. The contract specfies that in tho
event tho building is not completed by the
15th inst. the contractor shall donate to
the city at the rate of $10 per day for the
time ho withholds tiie building from the
use of the schools. This seems to have
had the effect of rushing the work. In
this instance very little trouble in receiv
ing material Mot of the contractors
havo an "awful" time to get material,
this, that, or the other when there is no
danger of financial trouble in tiie event of
.spending double the time necessary. It is
thought 10 per day would have given
Beard-ley & Co. considerable more energy
and it would not have been so difficult to
have found average siz e slate.
Tho present enrollment of the high
school is 205, or more than at an' other
high school in tho state. Tho present
facilities are about sufficient to accommo
date one hundred and fifty, and tho addi
tion will provide breathing room for one
hundred more, and the building as com
pleted will be sullicient to give accommo
dations for the pre-ent year. It is thought
by some that the high school enrollment
for next year will increase at least one
hundred over the present year, and in this
event more room will be required next
year, calling for another addition to the

The electric railway company is quite
anxious to find out what has become of
the electric machinery that was coming so
fast a few days ago. The power plant so
far, in the absence of dynamos and the
like, fails to furnish much power. In fact
Manager Fitch has not the courage to
make any circuit connections or attempt
it without dynamos. He confesses that he
don't know much about the electric busi
ness and he ain't far enough along to get
electric power out of a brick sufficient
to operate the cars.
The latest news about electrical ma
chinery is that it will be shipped in a
"few days." This has been the latest for
some weeks, and it is thought may be the
latest for some weeks in the future.

Qaecn Christine of Spain.
A prominent Spanish statesman was
asked to what he attributed the strange
fact that a woman, and a foreigner, held
the reins of government successfully in
her hands in a country f-o undermined as
Spain by polinctl intrigue. "The marvel,
if marvel there be," was the reply, "can be
explained in the simplest manner.
"The queen maintains her position be
cause she is tho exact opposite of an in
triguing and conspiring woman. She tells
no falsehoods, has nothing of the hypo
crite about her, is as simple and modest
as she is honest, and there is nobody in
Spain who is not convinced that he trie3
to do her best for the country. The queen's
popularity especially with the women of
Spain is a real power which gives her
much of the hold which sho has over her
subjects. Natural tact. Intelligence and
kindness aro also among the weapons by
which Queen Christine maintains her posi
tion. "Like our own queen, the queen regent
of Spam has worn mourning ever since the
death of her consort, and only quite lately
has she begun to wear jewelry on state oc
casions. In public the queen, who is 81
years old, appears only with her ton, tho
little king, with whom aoe takes drives in
the neighborhood of Madrid. The queen's
two daughters, aped 6 and 7 respectively,
talk Spanish, French, German and English
fluently, and are both very strong and
healthy looking children. Since it has be
come known that the queen calls Alphenso
XHI Bubi' in memory of her Austrian
home Spanish ladies have bejrnn to call
thoir children by the name, which Igno
rant of its real derivation trorn bube, boy
they trace back to the English term, baby,
or more tnKenioosly from 'pappy.' "Pall
An Empress "SVTio -"mokf.
Empress Elizabeth of Austria smokes
from thirty to forty Turkish and Russian
cigarettes a day, and for many years it has
been her inveterate custom to puff away
after dinner at a strong Italian agar, one
of those with a straw runninjc through it,
and which brought te her with her cup
of Turkish coffee etery evening on a sold
salver. She says herself tbas eraoking
soothes her nerves, and thAt wheaevcr she
feels "bine" a cigar or cigarette will do
more than anything else to caue her to
see things in a happier light She is a
perfect Greek and Litis scholar, and when
writingskesnioke almost continually. On
her writing table are always a large silTer
box of repoasse work filled with cigarettes,
a natch box of carved Chinese jade and a
capacious ash receiver, made of the hoof of
a favorite hunter, which broke its spine
over a blackthorn hedge several years ago
during one of the autumn meets at Schlosa

A New Profession.
At fi.st it seems like a humble one tc
mend but every work that Is well done is
honorable. Elizabeth. Florence and I are
all busy women. All the day through the
click of the typewriter, the "swish" of a
full pen or the two and two and five being
added up are about cs. When evening
comes the eyes are too tired, the fingers too
weary and too unaccustomed to holding
the needle to put a darn here, mend a shirt
there or put the loose buttons in place on a
coat. Now why cannot some girl who has
made well, not quite a success at dress
makingbe known to us, a girl to whom
the size of the trunk or the wardrobe is
given with a request that she will "straight
en things'" I do not know whether false
pride keeps them from this work, bnt ic is
much better to be a good mender than to
be a poor dressmaker, and once you get
your circle of customers be sure you will
be kept busy. Florence's black skirt all
freshened up and mended will sing your
praises. Elizabeth's stockings daintily
mended will tell of your deft fingers, and
the buttons sewed firmly in position on my
coat will, martial like, stand out and give
a military salute to your ability. That's
one profession for women who 6ew well in
which a good living could be made. Ruth
Ashmore in Ladies' Home Journal.

"If the wind keeps blowing in this direo

will bo rain," ventured the first speaker.
"Um I'm not so sure about that," said
the other cautiously.
"The wind, at least, is dead south now."
"It certainly isn't north."
The lean individual pursed up his lips as
if about to whistle, looked at tho sky again,
shook his head slowly and said:

Another careful examination of the
firmament and the cautious remark:
"It may be raiuing and it may not. You
can't always tell about these things."
"Great Jehoshaphatl Can't you see there
isn't a cloud in the sky?"
"Um likely enough. Likely enough. It
may appear that way to some folks. But
it's best not to be too sure."
"May appear that way? Why, good
gracious, manl Haven't you got any eye3?"
"Maybe I havo and maybo I haven't,"
retorted the attenuated individual, passing
his hand over his faco as if to find out.
"All I know is that there's nothing certain
in this world. You think there is a fair
ground out at the end of this street, per
haps." "I certainly do."
"Just so. I was certain of it yesterday
myself. I was certain there was a man
out thero with two or three walnut shells
he was moving about on the head of a bar
rel. I was certain I could tell which shell
the little black ball was under. I was just
as certain of it as you are that it isn't rain

find out that I didn't knowanything about
it. I am not going to bo sure of anything
again as long as I live "

only come from un country of sunshine.
An English or an Aiu-ru.an bonnet is
too often overtnramed, but the French
one seems to hare been thooght out of
