Prof. E. B. Cowgill, the well known
Kansas sugar man, or one who is authority
on sugar making in Kansas as well as
elsewhere, arrived yesterday morning and
u ill be detained in the city a day or two
looking after business matters. Concern
ing tho sugar making business
he stated last evening that this
year's experience was most gratifying. It
was considered and estimated one year ago
that the manufacture of sugar from cane
and beets raised in Kansas had passed be
yond the experimental stage, and this year
ouly confirms that opinion. The companies
in the state going at the business in a busi
ness-like manner in every respect are get
ting along quite well and are making
money. There is no overproduction fea
ture to cause alarm in the sujrar making
business, and before this point could be
reached it is thought fifteen hundred or
two thousand plants could be in operation
Tho business this year has faced a light
cane crop, or much lighter than last year,
owing to the drouth. This, however, lias
not in the laest impaired the quality of the
cane with reference to its sugar making
properties. Tho Medicine Lodge factory
as a sample shows 147 pounds of sugar
per ton of cane, while the total output of
that factory will double the average Louis
iana factory for the last five yeurs.
Tho Kansas factories have made ar
rangements for selling total output iu New
Orleans and at a price one quarter cent be
low quotations in New York City on day
of sale. The sugar from sorghum cane
coming in the market so early has the ad
vantage of the best prices. This is no
small feature in taking into account the
The Medicine Lodge factory is now
handling 200 tons per day, but
is now making arrangements to
double the capacity for next year.
Every factory in the state is going
to increase its capacity some double, while
others will not go far into the business.
Tho Medicine Lodge company has
already contracted for 4,000 acres of cane
for next year and the same acreage of
beets. The prices for cane are from 1.50
toj'2.80 pes ton for cane and beets $3 to &
Prof. Cowgill says the time has como
when capital will not be afraid to go into
the sugar business, since it has been estab
lished that the business is a success. Iu
order to insure returns on a business basis,
he says, a company must have capital.
By way of secondly business management
and third competent skill and with all best
obtainable machinery. Wherever these
points have been watched tho plants have
been a success.
Miss Helen Welch, of 231 Cleveland av

The Wichita Cooperage company is mak

in response to au increased demand for the

away as Dennison, Texas, and is absolute

It will be remembered that the factory
burned down some months aso and the
company temporarily took a building

Thomas, postmaster at Cheney, this coun

not been complaining and his sudden death
was a violent shock to his family and the
entire community. The cause of his death
is supposed to have been an apoplectic
spasm. Mr. Thomas was a member of the
G. A. R.; he had served as postmaster only
a few months, having been appointed by
the present administration to that posi
tion. He was esteemed by all who knew
him as au honorable citizen and au upright

most successful and interesting meeting
the leagues ever held. The very pleasant
weather the great revival spirit which pre

interesting program prepared for tho oc

ON THE HOME STKETC1L
Hon. W W. Cook, of Medicine Lodge,
who was in the city yesterday, says that
the sugar works down there have been a
gieat success this year and profitable. One
hundred pounds of sugar were gotten from
cane this year, as against seventy-odd
pounds last year. Next year he doubts
not that the Medicine Lodge factory will
turn off one million pounds of cane nnd
beet sugar combined. The factory having
exhausted the cane crop, goes to work ou
beets this week. The EAGLE has never
lost its faith in tho final triumph of the
sugar business in southwest Kansas. It's
in our soil, as all chemists unite in declar
ing. There is a greater per cent of sac
charine in both our sorghum and in our
beets than iu the same products raided
anywhere else in the United States. Tho
agricultural department admits it and ex
perts declare it. Of course with a hun
dred sugar factories, mora or less, in
southern Kansas, a sugar refinery will
have to be built at Wichita.

RICE'S "WORLD'S FAIR."
The merry burlesque on the discovery of
America and tho world's fair to be held in
Chicago promises to be quite an event at
our opera house this and Thursday even
ings. Tho size and excellence of the com
pany, tho resplendent scenery and rich
costumes, together with the music, will
render the entertainment an exceptionally
enjoyablo one. The spectacular effects are
described as far above the ordinary and
receive unmeasured praise in tne press
where the extravaganza lias been given.
A strong financial merit of the production
is that it draws not only the elite but also
fills the galleries. The play b bubbling
over with wit and humor in travesties on
history, drama and opera. The title, "The
World's Fair," gives only n meagre idea of
tho prodigal splendor of the production as
it is rendered by Rice's "Surprise Party."
It comes direct from tho Warder Grand
Opera house in Knnsas City, whero it
played all last week with marked success.
The "Arizona Joe" company is un
doubtedly playing the banner engagement

Not long ago in the Peshawur district a
man went so very far to the bad as to shoot
a Mullah. It might have been an accident,
or he mistook his man, or pure villany;
anyhow the Mullah died, and like many
another outlaw the murderer had to fly
over the border. First he tried Buneyr,
but the news had preceded him and he
was refused shelter. He then tried the
Swat "Valley with no better success the
country of the Akhund would have none
of him. Even the AfridLe, small reverence
as they pay to spiritual advisers, would
have nothing to say to a ruffian whose
hands were died with the blood of a pious
man. Wearied at length of being hunted
from tribe to tribe he bethought himself
of repentance. vone of you will have
me," he said; "I can but be a martyr; I
will go and kill a Sahib."
So back he came to Peshawur canton
ment and walked down to the Mall to look
for a victim. Not finding one handy he
turned off and went for a cavalry sergeant
in difficulties with a troublesome horse, at
whom he took deliberate aim. As luck
would have it the first bullet was stopped
by a range finder the sergeant had on him,
but before the latter could go for his assail
ant the Pathan got another bullet through
the sergeant's helmet and made a bolt for
it. A plucky native ran in, and the man
was ultimately secured, tried by the com
missioner the same evening and, under
summary pow era, hanged the next morn

Gen. G. W. Rollins of New York City,
hns been spending three days in Wichita.
He leaves for home this morning via Chi
cago. In a call last evening Gen. Rollins
said that Wichith had carried him off his
feet, not only by its magnitude and by its
structural solidity, but by iu beauty. He
could not conceive how it all had been
done in eighteen years how the trees were
made to urow as fast as the streets were
hud out. and as tall as the tnliest snires.
Gen. Ro litis is here in the interest of a
groat eastern coriKrntion: and goes away
well satisfied with his mission.
Mr. Frank Logan found his horse yes

said h had found the horse wandering
around iu the suburbs and had captured
it to give bock to the owner. Mr. LogRn
is quite anxious to find out something
more about the matter.

Mr. D. C. Imboden, a prominent grain
merchant of Kansas City, and brother to
Adam H. Imboden, of this city, is in
town looking up the status of the cram
' IIow a Woman Cut a 'Trlend." '
A tender hearted little woman will per
mit herself to be drseged into an acquaint- j
ance which will causa her hours of weep- ,
Ing. She has not the moral courage to j
dehberately cut the woman, and the wom
an, being an intrigante, does not mean to .
let her. At last, however, she does get np .
tnough courage to strike the blow, and ',
the way she does it is very fnnny. The ,
chances are she meats the undesirable
when she is with sonw man to whom she
has told her tale of woe, or else with a
woman who knows th? world better than j
she does, and either one of these will give
her courace. i
She loots at the "cr'aUire"' (for she has i
cotten to call her thnU and starta vacantly j
as does a French doll; then she tarns to her J
protector and says: "Yon I could do it. j
bat do vou suppose he will write rae a note j
abotttit' That sh6 can leave the note i
enanswered never enters her small hend, j
and the "creature" likes nothing better
tba to have a lot f letters from her vie
tim, that she may display them to her own ;
circle and .show how intimate she is.

known photographer's here and an
