A quarterly meeting of the State Plumb
er's Association was held yesterday at the
parlors of Hotel Metropole. There were
present the leading men in the business
from every important town in tho state.
The association held a morning, afternoon
and night session, spending alL the time
earnestly attending to business. Many
questions were discussed of importance to
the business. Of course some were secret
matters. Plumbers are said to have secrets
in their business as well as other people.
It was said by one they had no desire to
cut prices. In fact they not long ago, came
to the conclusion they were doing work for
notning. As a result they were tempted
to raise prices, but he represented that
there was no elevated price understanding
about tho matter, but each one was allow
ed to go ahead for himself.
Ordinarily a state association meeting a
few weeks before the legisliture convenes
makes an effort at some sort of legislation.
It was claimed by eome of the plumbers
that the association had not the audacity
to make any requests in that line. They
would proceed under the evils they now
endured rather than run a chance of
bringing down more on their heads.
The meetings were presided over by the
president, James Foley, C. F. Prescott,
secretary and R. Mood, treasurer, also be
ing present. The following members

One of the leading discussions arose
over the topic of adopting a universal
form of contract somnthing similar to
that now in use by the Masters and Build
ers' association. There was a strong feel
ing iu favor of such a measure, and some
time was discussed in considering the
provisions of the contract form. The mat
ter was finally disposed of by referring it
to a committee composed of T. Loyd, of
Kansas City, Kansas, R. Wood and
C. States, of Topeka. The com
mittee was instructed to report
at the next" meet, a form taking into
consideration the suggestions made in the
The question of how to improve plumb
ing work was considered. It was generally
conceded that tho public would not object
to improvements. But work done right
ought not call for such a nice bill for re
pairs. However, it was thought an ad
vantage to the business to devise some
means of improving the standard of work.
It was decided to ask the council of every
city to appoint an inspector of plumbing,
the object being to protect the public from
bad work. A s committee to present the
suggestion to the various eities, the follow
ing were appointed: Proscott, of Topeka;
Toby, of Leavenworth; Done, of Lawience;
Allen, of Eldorado.
There was some discussion of how to
create a building boom m Kansas. It was
decided not to take decisive steps in the
matter at this meeting.
Tho association adjourned to meet at
Kansas City, Kansas, tho second Monday
of 1 -bruary next.

At the Crawford Grand, Wednesday
night November 19th.
Every lover of music and fan living in
Wichita cannot fail something closely
akin to a thrill of pleasure in seeing the
announcement of the coming of W. F.
Carleton's opera company to the Craw
ford Grand on next Monday and Tuesday
evening. Although it -will be the first
visit of the Carleton company to Wichita,
it will not come here as an entire stranger
by any means, as it has doubtless been
seen and heard by many residents while
visiting Kansas City. Chicago 'or some of
the leading eastern cities, where it has
been a regular visitor for the past seven
years. He is generally conceded to be the
standard of excellence among traveling
light opera companies, by the critics
of the press of all the principal
cities. One of the most substantial proofs
of the high character of the company is
the extremely high percentage of the re
ceipts which is guaranteed by Manager
Crawford. When it is considered that
they are the highest ever given by him to
any attraction he has brought to Wichita
then some idea of its standing in his esti
mation may be had. The company num
bers half a hundred of the best artists in
comic opera. Among them are Clara
Lane, Clara Wisdom, Marion Langdon,
Bertha Lavoy, Jennie Millard, Claire de
Short and Jeannie Winston; J. K. Mur
ray, Chas. B. Bigelow, Harold C. Blake,
Ralph de Mesa, Dushane, Cloward. Wal
ter West, Miles Parker, W. li. Dixon
and W. T. Carleton, himself aud in
addition a chorus that is acknowledged to
be, without exception, tho best in Amer
ica. On Monday evening, "Nanon," loveliest
of operas, which, with Mr. Carleton in the
principal role rau an entire year at the
New York Casino, and has since been sung
over 2,000 times by him in all the leading
cities from Boston to San Francisco, will
be given. On Tuesday evening "Tho
Mikado" complete version, and the first
authorized production of the opera ever
given in Wichita. Two more beautiful
operas could not be chosen aud given, as
they will be, with a wealth of special
scenery, gorgeous costumes, etc. They

suddenly and deliberately seated himself
on the floor, and remained in that position,
breathing heavily, for space of five
minutes. Then he abruptly arose, and for
ten minutes more enacted tho same mani
acal scene. Finally, being attracted by the
lightwhich he beheld at (he window,, he
cautiously approached, his eyes blazing
and his teeth grating with a sound like
that made by castanets. One of the party
called him by name. No reply. "Show
me your tcetu," said one. Instantly he
opened hL?moutu. "Are yoa all right

Dr. J. B. Walker, the attending physi
cian, said: "It is a remarkable case of peri
odic insanity, although in no respect a
typical one. For sixteen weeks every night
this man. at precisely 7:40. has become vio
lently insane, the attack lasting about half
an hour. At all other times he is as ra
tional as any man. Close study and ob
servation have convinced me of the genu
ineness of his insanity. I have adminis
tered as much as sixty grains of chloral to
prevent a paroxysm, with no perceptible
effect. He receives a warning of one min
ute before each attack.
In order to test the case Rider was called
before a small party at the hospital one
evening, and Dr. Walker said to him:
"Eli, these men are physicians, and we
have concluded, as a last resort in your
case, that if jou have another attack to
night it will be necessary for us to burn
your spine along its entire length with a
red hot iron."
Rider grew pale and strongly objected.
"This is severe treatment, it is true, but
necessary if you have another attack, aa
we have all agreed."
Still he objected. It lacked only fifteen
minutes of his time for the spell. In front
of his door an attendant was heating an
iron rod in a soldering store. Rider winced
as he glanced at it, but entered, the room.
An attendant refused to put the straps on
the patient. It was 7:39.
"Then give mo the cuffs," exclaimed the
doctor, and before ho had finished the sen
tence Rider's teeth were grinding and his
hands were at the throat of a spectator. A
terridc struggle ensued, and it required
four strong men to throw him to the floor.
The straps were adjusted, chloroform was
administered, and in hali an hour Rider
was again himself, but oblivious of all that
had taken place. Chicago Tribune.

fact, scarcely a building has been erected
in the absence of a bill for extras or some
trouble in some way. It wa3 thought a
good scheme to put up one building with
out a contractor and see if a satisfactory
settlement could bo made.

Chas. A. Gardner, one of the finest Ger
man dialect comedians now bofore the
public, appears nt the opera houso tonight
in "Fatherland," a Tyrolean comedy which
is better constructed nnd mnch more In
teresting than many of the dramas now in
vogue. Mr. Gardner as Herman Leopald,
a Tyrolean guide, is the central figure of
the play, and the various scenes give him
abundant opportunity to use a good dia
lect, to sing a number of songs and to
dance, ne has a very sweet voice which
he uses with effect and the songs which he
sinus are pretty and tunefuL There is a
charming widow played by Miss Eva
Byron, who is pursued by a rascally
brother-in-law, and the hero, the
gallant Tyrolean guide has . his
hands full in taking care of the widowand
making love to her in the interval of the
villian's pursuit. Virtue is, of course,
triumphant and vice baffled. The four
acts of the play afford a chance for a great
deal of local color in dress and scenery,
and strict attention hns been paid to detail
in these respects. "Fatherland is musical,
entertaining and humorou. The songs
sung by Mr. Gardner in his own delightful
manner, are "Pretty Bobolink," "Shut
Your Eyes Tightly," "Chamys Hunter,"
"Gesundheit" and the "Lilac." AH of
which are catchy and taking airs, fall of
melody. As Mr. Gardner has always
drawn good houses upon former visits he
will no doubt be greeted by a large au

rural Highgate, the last rusting place of
Samuel Taylor Coleridge. A mote dismal
spot than that which contains the dust of
tho poet can hardly be imagined.
Situated in the center of the crypt of the
chapel of Highgate grammar school, which
is entered by open archways from two sides
of tho building, the unsightly proportion
of tho tomb is conspicuous amid its lugu
brious surroundings. On the fiat surface
of the massive stone is engraved the name
"Coleridge," while immediately above the
entrance to the vault a list of the family
interments is inscribed. Alongside the
poet's grave a temporary lodgment has
been formed for a number of disused school
desks, upon which, from their antique
and rickety appearance, school boy prede
cessors of the poet may have practiced tho
engraver's art. Pall Mall Gazette.

There are few tables now where dishes
are set on and left. Where the custom still
prevails there is the same necessity as of
old for dinner mats, but tbi-y are so de
forming to the symmetry of the table that
people cover them with embroidered linen
pieces. For an old fashioned housekeeper
a young friend could make an acceptable
gift of a set of these mat covers. Half a
dozen is a set. and there should bo three
sizes, each slightly larger than the straw
or slat mats they are to cover. The edge
may be button holed in a heavy trefoil
scallop, done with yellow linen floss.
Above tho scallops may be three rows of
feather stitching, done with jellow. Or
the work may all be done in white. Tho
linen used for the mats should be heavy
