Mr. Thomas F. McGinnis arrived yes
terday morning and will spend a few dnys
in the city. He is president of the Texas
Elevator company, which is one of the
leading compauies dealing in grain in the
country. For some time the company has
been contemplating putting in an elevator
n this city and it is on this matter that
Mr. McGinnis makes this visit. He has
leeu hero two or three times within the
last few months and has given this ques
tion special attention. He is quito well
satisfied this section of the southwest pro
duces corn and wheat which is one -thing
suggestive of an elevator. He is also quite
certain that Wichita is in the center of a
great grain producing district with more
railroad facilities than any other point. In
his investigation he finds packing houses
doing good business which is an important
pointer on the inducemens for elevators.
Should the company decide to erect an
elevator here, it will be of a million bushel
capacity which will be readily recognized
as an important step in that line of busi
ness and be of great importance to the
city. It is thought tho question will be
determined upon within a few days.
The directory of the Union Grain and
Elevator company expect to hold a meet- j
TOuuiiun, in ma unpleasantness ol
tho last few days there has been, prac
tically, a cessation of business in many
sections, and this condition seems to have

some correspondence about plans for the
building and plant which will probably
command attention. It is thought a good
idea to have some plans and estimates be

Templar friends called on him last evening
by way of a surprise, and ali had a most
pleasant evening of it. Among those pres
ent were: C. M. Jones, Jerre Cole, Oscar

games for the most part, and just before
leaving. Mr. J. P. Allen, in a very pleas
ant manner informed Mr. Arnold that his
Knight Templar friends desired to be re- .
membered by him, and as a token of es
teem as a friend and Knight Templar they
presented him with a Knight Templar
charm. It was a very handsome one, cost
Mr. Arnold responded with thanks for
tho handsome present, and assured them
his friends in Wichita made it quite sure
this would alwavs be his home.
THE MISTAKE IN I'JIK COUNT.
It makes tho average member of the
combination very angry to intimate th.it
Ayres has not been elected. They hu-tled
around and Mowed in an abundance of
cash trying to secure that very imponant
office. It comes in from some of the town
bhips that tho judges lound W. W. Ayers
on some of the tickets nnd M. W. Ayres
on others. They supposed this was in
tended one and tho same "Ayres" not
knowing that the prohibition candidate
and the combination man were separate
individuals. Also on some of the tickets
it was written plain "Ayres" and these
were al.-o counted for the combination
crudidate. It is said the Republicans will
be cruel enough to insist on the mistakes
lM-ing corrected and should it appear that
Luhug has more votes than either of th
"Ayre," it may be insisted that Luling
be declared tho next district clerk. This
would bo cruel indeed, but in the count if
Luling has been elected, it would prob
ably be concluded that he should have the

would look upon tin- conditions in the

Secretary of Suite Win. Wiggins camo
up from Vt elbngton yesterday aud re
mained in the city until noon, when he
loft for Topeka. He give it out to the
boys that the republican state ticket was
defeated nud he had no sore spots. He
claimed if Robinson had been elected he
would have felt rather sick, bnt as it was
he did not consider he had any more reason
to be sick than some others. But, on the
quiet, it was discovered soon after ho left
town, two or three fellows proceeded to
swing around considerable money on
Humphrey. It is a deep suspicion that
there may have been a tip somewhere and
that Hiegins was not exactly satisfied that
Humphrey was defeated. Last night
there was considerable money put up on

The second car load of slate for black

necessary is on hand. The representative
of Bwirdsley & Co., of Hamilton. O., is at
work putting up the boards aud so far tho
work completed at the Kellogg building.
Some of the slate distributed for the other
buildings and it is thought that within
ten day all the buildings will be supplied.
Dr. Stevenson is hearing complaints
every day about tho inconvenience result

In many instauces temporary accommoda

is quite unsatisfactory.

There was much figuring yesterday on

Higgins on the street, and he rushed up
ind reque-ted that he send a list of ap
pointments in the hands of the governor.

What w'll prove one of the brilliant and
fashionable events of the year in a theatri
cal sense, will be the engagement of the
great emotional actress, Mande Granger,
which begins at the Crawford Grand to
night. For the past week her coming has
been one of the principal topics of conver
sation among our society people and thea
tre goes in general. Everybody has heard
of Maude Granger. She is an actress of
the same school that has produced Fanny
Davenport, Kose Coghlin, Clara Morris,
and others of the more prominent Ameri
can actresses, but the west has not until
recently had an opportunity of seeing her,
as her engagements have been confined al
most exclusively to the eastern cities. With
the exception of occasional engagement in
San Fraucisco she has never been seen in j
anv of the cities of the west, a&ida from I
Denver and Salt Lake, until this season.
Her engagement which opens tonight will
present her in her new play, "Inhe-ited,"
or "L'Heritage d'Helene," as it was orig
inally produced in Paris at the Theatre de
L'Application. Tomorrow night she will
be seen in her own version of "The Creole"
as played by her over 500 times in the east
ern cities. A strong feature of the engage
ment will be the excellent supporting com
pany she will bring, which comprises such
well known people as Harry Mainhall,
Frank Kilday, Charles H. Mestayer, C. M.
Gray, Harry French, the Misses Esther
Williams, Carrie Elberts, Jennie Eiberts
and others, not forgetting sweet little Baby
Parker. The engagement has been antici
pated with pleasure, and Manager Craw
ford is to be congratulated on securing
Miss Granger for Wichita.
Harry Gilfoil is a stranger here, bnt he
jumped into popularity at once by his re
markably clever imitations in "A Trip to

cat fight, a buzz saw: eta, has never been
equaled here, and he is a champion whistler
as well. His specialties took at once.

Thirteentn century only tne single glass
was in use.
In 1'jyo the double glass was invented,
some say by Saivino degii Armati, others
by too monk, Alexander of Spina. In the
Fourteentn century spectacles were used
quite ircquently by tne very wealthy and

men retuscd to hear him, gave to the poor,
accoruing to the iegenu, not oniy nis ciotnes,
but also nis spectacles.
The first spectacles, which were very ex
pensive, were made in itaiy. Somewhat
later the manufacture or cneaper glasses
sprang up in Holland, and it spread late in
the Fourteenth century to Germany. Xurn

He pointed outbtatcn island as Blackw ell's

that had just passed under tne bridge as
"probably a Cunaruer going to sea," and,
diverting his eloquence to Brooklyn,
knocked about all the remaining facts in

And the big, grim faced policeman, who
had relieved the monotony of his beat by

"Why "Wo Scream.
So used aro we to our"aggompaniment"
that the organ must give it forth in more
or less vigorous mea.nro while the mar
riage ceremony is perlurmed. The nwrtll
"charge" laid upon tbo conscience of the
contracting parties, the pledge and re
sponse of husband and wife, tho very pray
er and benediction, are lost in the waves of
sound. If the average American hnd his
way a bras3 band would be established in
the vestibule instead of the piped and keyed
instrument, but thus far church and pre
cedent are too strong for him.
As a nation wo are not musical. As a
nation and as individuals wo love llare and
blare, sound and sensation. We liko to
feel that we have a big place in the uni
verse, and to fill it full! Satirists might
trace a connection, remote but actual, be
tween our taste in this respect and the in
fluence of our national emblem the bird
that flaunts and soars and screams.
Wo need toning down nil along the line,
and in nothing more than in our language
and voices. The one is florid; tho others
are loud and untrained.
In general society, too, many of our best
dressed women suggest inevitably and
ludicrously an English novelist's descrip
tion of peacocks, who "were attitudinizing
and conversing in the hijrh key in which
they always proclaim a change of weather
and their innate vuh,- .nty to the world."

Investigation into tho causes of the re
cent fires on steamships has shown that
tho use of a very simple menns of lire ex
tinction, tho injection of carbonic acid gas
into the hold, is very often not resorted to
when it would be of the utmost service. -It
is a matter for surprise that this effective
safeguard which requires for its genera
tion only a few barrels of marble dust and
twenty or thirty gallons of hydrochloric
acid, with hogihcads for the confinement
of the gas and hose for its injection, is not
universally employed for tho preservation,
of life and property on the high seas, es
pecially as in the hold of a vessel, which
can be tightly closed, the principal of chem
ical extinction can be applied with almost
certain success. The adoption of such a
system would result not only in the saving
of property, but might at any time prove
the means of averting Io3 of life. New
