The Poultry Exhibition a Decided Success so
Far js It Has Gone.
Yesterday the poultry show, now being
held in the Armory, assumed its proper
shape, as all the exhibitors' and exhibits
were present. The show is a success too,
and Superintendent Mnlky and Justice
Jones pronounced it the best ever held by
the Southern Kansas association. It was
visited yesterday by hundreds of people
all of whom expressed their surprise at
the size of tho fowls present. Some six
months chickens are actually as large as
eagles, while tho ducks, in some instances,
are taken for geese. It is amusing to ob
serve the spirit of revalry that
is manifested by the roosters
;is to which of them can crow the loudest.
One bantam over in the corner wants to
be heard in the world, and he crows. A
big rooster in the next coop to him laughs
at the pretentions of his diminutive neigh
bor and, with a twinkle in his eye, he
glances at his mates, as much as to say,
"You just lay low and hear mo crow," and
then he flops his wings, curves his neck,
and crows a crow that shakes the coop.
Over iu the opposite corner of tho room
there is a big Piymouth Rock rooster,
owned by M. B. Keagy, of Wellington. He
is not a bit proud or stuck up, but when
he hears the big roosters crowing over tho
little ones, and delighting in it, he crows
himself and knocks all the other
roosters silly. It is said that all the
clocks in Wellington are set by this
roosters crow. lie crows at midnight and
it is said that he was never known to miss
low twelve by a third of a second.
Mr. Keagy has one of the .finest exhibits
at the show. There are larger exhibits
there but none better so far as quality is
concerned. It consists of Plymouth Rocks
and single-comb Brown Leghorns. Mr.
Keagy is not only a breeder of fine poultry
but is also a breeder of some of the finest
Charles O. Albert of Wichita has also a
fine exhibit of poultry consisting of Ply
mouth Rocks.Light Brahmas, single-comb
Brown Leghorns, B. B. R. game and In
dian game. Mr. Alberts' exhibit is tho
largest at the show and consists of some
remarkably fine birds.
William Faucett of Wichita has also a
very large exhibit, among which are some
of the finest Plymouths, Leghorns, black
Minorcas and Indian Games, one could see
in a month's travel.
D. A. Snyder has some beautiful Wyan
dottes on exhibition. The Wyandotte is
purely an American chicken and is said
to be one of the best breeds known. He
did not originate in Wyandotte, Kan., as
one might suppose, and was given that
name by tho American Poultry associa
tion, on account of the fact that the n..mo,
like the chicken, is purely Americtn. Mr.
Snyder has also on exhibition some single
comb White Leghorns and Black Mi
norcas. C. M. Irvin of Wichita is another largo
exhibitor of fine birds. His exhibit con
sists of Rose-comb Brown Leghorns, Siu-gle-comb

play consisting of Light Brahmas, White
Wjandottes, Red Caps, Black Minorcas
and Pekin ducks. They are all boauties
and are destined to capture a prize.
Roy Allen, son of ex-Mayor J. P. Allen,
has somf Quo black breasted Red Bantams
on exhibition, and Vermillion Harris, an
other Wichita youth, has on exhibition a
pair of elegant Rose-comb Bantams.
Robert Murphy of Sedgwick county is
"in it" with the other exhibitors, for ho
has probably the finest pens of Silver Wy
andot tos at tho show.
J. S. Dey, a Wellington lawyer, has two
coops of Light Brahmas, two coops of
Rouen ducks ami a coop of the finest
brouzo turkeys iu southern Kansas.
J. G. Pars of Wichita has a fino ex
hibit of white fowls, consisting of Ply
mouths, Wyandottes and Lannsban3.
The other exhibitors are as follows:
Kellogg & Alexander, Black Minoricas,
Buff Cochins, Indian Game, trio of cross
bred Indian Game and Golden Wyan

pigeons and it Is unquestionably the nicest
exhibit at tho show The proud Famails
are there, both black and whit, and so are
the stately Jacoblus with their pretty
feathers ruflled about the neck. He has
also Tumblets and Pouters on exhibition.
There is one dog on exhibition. A dog
is not poultry exactly, but this one is a
uiid dog, heuce his claim to a pi "ce iu the
show. He is a Gordon setter and certain
ly a very fiue dog. He is owned by D.

THE MARRIAGE BOOSl ST1L.I, ON.
The matrimonial boom is still on and
Judge Buckner is enjoying the harvest he
is having. The past two days have been
very good for the probate court, but the
fact is, the marriages this year will fall
about seventy short of the number of
licenses issued last year. Tho following
licenses were granted yesterday before 4
o'clock: A. B. Oox, Andover, Orilla
Rison, Wichita; F. L. Cummings, St.
Louis, Maggie Guthrie, Wichita; E. E.

Yesterdiy morning, the hearts, hands
and destines of Miss Rilla Taylor of this
city and Mr. Charles S. Aldrich of Evan
ston, Ills., were joined together in the
holy bonds of wedlock, by Rev. Mr. Hart
ley, pastor of the First Methodist church,
and iu the presence of numerous friends
of the contracting parties.
At 9 o'clock, sharp, the bridal pair en
tered the church to the beautiful strains
of Mendelsohn's wedding March which
was admirably rendered by Mrs. S. S.
The bride was attired in a toilet of
bisque gray cashmere and embroidered
chiffon. The skirt was slashed in sharp
points and festooned with chiffon and rib
bon. The bodice was poiuted with corsage
slightly ronuded and filled in with lace,
which was cascaded down the front of tho
bodice. Full puffed sleeves, finished with
a fall of lace at the hand; gloves to match
costume. She carried a large bouquet of
white La Grange roses aud hyacinths and
wore hyacinths in her hair.
The bridesmaids were Miss Fannie Jj.
Jackson and Miss Sue Weaver. Mhs
Jackson wore a handsome costume of
mouve wool crepe, with trimmings of
guimpe of darker shade; pointed bodice,
rounded corsage, Elizabethian sleeves,
long gloves, bouquet of pink March 'Neil
roses. Miss Weaver wore a dainty costume
of shell pink Henrietta and lnce, made
prinjess. Tho corsage was square with
high medici collar. The fullness of the
bodice was gathered in from the shoulders
at tho waist. High puffed sleeves, tan
cloves and a bouqet of cream rosebuds
completed the costume.
Tho groomsmen were Mr. Charles F.
Martin and Mr. Fred Guthrie of Evans
ton, Ills. The ushers were Mr. Herbert
Stevens and Mr. W. F. Tomlinson. of
Miss Taylor is a young lady who is pos
sessed of a very sweet disposition and will
make a life partner for Mr. Aldrich that
he can feel proud of all his life. She is
well known to, and universally admired
by all tho young people iu the city who
mingle in society, aud she Js especially ad
mired in scholastic circles, having been
for quite a long while one of the teachers
in the public schools. The presents given
the happy couplo were numerous and
Both left on the mornine train for their
future homo at Evanston, Ills.
Last night at the residence of W. K.
Clifford, 2l North Emporia nvenue, Mr.
S. S. B'llingsby aud Mifas Ella Worbs were

Mr. Hartley, p istor of the First M. E.
church. Both of the contracting parties
live in Wichita and are well known and
highly esteemed young people. The cere
mony was performed in tho presence of a
number of the most iutimate friends and
relatives of the contracting parties.
Mr. F. L. Cummings, of St. Louis, and
Miss Magglo Guthrie, of Wichita, were
married hist night in this city. The wed
ding was quite a swell affair and will be
p trticularized later on in the Eagle. Miss
Guthrie has a host of friends in Wichita,
whose best wishes go with her to her new
homo at St. Louis.
A CUKE FOR THIS OKU.
La grippe is getting a tighter grip on
Wichita every day. Hundreds of people
are now sick with it, butfoitunatoly there
aro no serious cavs of it so far as heard
from. The physicians aro taxed to their
utmost capacity and the drug stores aro
doing a rushing busindss. Some physi
cians claim that there is no cure for the
grip, and that tho best thing people can do
is to tako preventives, while other physi
cians claim it is as easily cured as a cold
a light fever. One gentleman who was
aitacked with the grip last week found no
relief by tho use of medicine and
was about to surrender in disoair when
he fouud a receipe in a Chicago paper
which ho tried with excellent rosults, for
he is now up and around again and thanks
the recipe for it. The recipe which he tried
is contained in the lollowing interview
with Dr. Frederick Goodwin, Ph. G., of
the Chicago college of pharmacy. Tho
doctor says: "I have treated the disease,'
ho said yesterday, "on scientific princi
ples. I have fouud that alcohol, borax,
and heated air are deadly enemies of tho
organism which has caused so much
trouble during the past two years. The
weakest part of tho body is always at
tacked first, the eyes, tho nose or the ears.
Now, as soon as the sysptoms of the grip
appear tho patient should go to a stove
and inhale hot air. This ot itself is suffi
cient iu some cases to destroy the organ
isms. But iu addition to the hot air, alco
holic vapors and powered borax should be
For the eyes I would recommend a mix
tnre of four grains of borax to one of rose
water. When the ears are attacked
tieatmeut must be directed to the throat.
A small lump of borax may be dissolved
in the mouth. In any cae the patient
should keep warm and should sit by a
stovo and use the alcoholic water and
If tho fever is noticeable the same pro
ceedure should be followed. For adults
who are attacked by fever fifteen grains of
ncetanilid may be taken every half hour.
In cases of very high fever cold water
cloths miy be applied to the head.
The only object is to destroy the baccil
lus, and th:3 treatment never fails. 1 think
it a good plan for every person to carry in
the pocket a two-ounce vial of alcohol and
a small box of pure powdered borax and a
few lumps of borax to hold in the mouth
for the throat.
In this way every man may be his own
doctor, and I am ture that if these direc
tions are followed we shall be able to ward
off any serious effects of the grip.

THE SUCCESS OF A KANSAS BOY.
Lieutenant J. G. Harboard, of the Fifth
cavalry, who is now on recruiting service
iu this city, is a Kansas boy,
if such an appellation could be ap
plied to a dashing officer who has all
the graces and the bearing of a military
man. More than that, he is a southern
Kansas man, and five years ago was
teaching school about twenty-five miles
east of Wichita. He was then an ambi
tious youth and joined the regular army in
hopes that by good conduct and a studious
application of his mind to the dnties of a
soldier he could rise to a higher position
than a soldier of the ranks. Like all Kan
sas men with nerve aud ambition he suc
ceeded, and about five months ago was
promoted to the rank of second lieutenant.
At that time fourteen soldiers were pro
moted from the ranks and out of the four
teen two were Kansaus, winch i a re
markable showing, cousidetiutr the fact
that there are only very few Kausans in
the army. Lieutenant Harbord is a
graduate of the Kansas Agricultural
college and has many young friends in
the state. He is a very pleasant
yonng gentleman and is entirely free from
all that unpopular aristocratic gloss and
veneer that characterizes graduates of
West Point. Among the fortunate soldiers
that were promoted with him was Lieuten
ant Hays, who was wounded a few days
ago in Texas in a fight with Garza's Mexi
can revolutionists. Mr. Harbord's father
was a soldier in tho Illinois Fitch cavalry
cavalry during the war, and for that
reason ho has a pardonable pride in being
an officer in the TJuited States Fifth cav
alry. AN OLD illSSOUKl PACIFIC HAS KILLED.
A special dispatch to the St. Louis Re
public, dated Tuesday, says: "George
Kruger, night yardmaster for the Hous
ton and Texas Contral railroad in this
city, was shot and fatally wounded by
Waltar Heniksen today. The shooting
took place at Maurice Lacey's saloon,
where Heniksen was employed as a bar
tender. Kruger who was intoxicated,
ordered drinks for the crowd, and then re
fused to pay for them. Instead, he hurled
a stone match-box at the bartender, who
dodged the missile, which ladded in the
glassware behind the bar. Heniksen drew
a gun and shot at Kruger as the latter was
leaving the saloon, the ball lodging in the
small of the back and touching the spine.
Kruger, who is paralyzed from the hips
down, was taken to tho hospital in a dying
condition, and tho shooter was jailed.
Kruger is about 30 years of age and single."
Kruger was an emoloye of the Missouri
Pacific road until about a year ago, and
was well known in this city to all the
railroad men as well as the local sports.
He was a fine looking man.asmart fellow,
and those who used to associate with him
here say that he was a nephew of ox
Governor Thayer of Nebraska. He was a
wild young fellow, however, and were it
not for the fact that he was a first class
railroad man, ho could not keep a job ten
days with any railway company in the
laud on account of his drinking habits.
The last time he was here he stopped at
one of the second class hotels, and in a
difficulty with the laudlord he knocked
the latter down stairs and had to skip in
order to avoid arrest.
WILL JiNFOItOIt THE GAME LAW.
A number of local sportsmen met yes
terday in the Sedgwick block to take some
action with reference to tho protection of
prairie chickens and quails after Jan. 1.
From and after that date it will be a
crime, punishable with a very severe
penalty, to kill quails or chickens. It will
also bo a crime to sell them or offer them
for sale, and it was the intention of those
who met yesterday to watch the stops
critically and cause tho arrest of any
parties in whose possession either
chickens or quails shall be found
One of the sportsmen mentioned in speak
ing with an Eaglk reporter last night,
said: "Yes, the law will bo enforced
after January 1st. There never was a time
during the past ten years that chickens
aud quails were more numerous in this
section of the country than they are at
present and if thoy are protected tho sup
ply next shooting season will bo sufficient
for everbody. The only way to stock up
the prairie with game of this class is to
protect it and we propose to do it."
"What plan will you adopt?"
"We will get after tho dealers. There
will bo no inducement for anybody to
break the law if they cannot turn tho re
sults into cash. The dealers can't claim
that tho stock is left over either, for no
matter when a chicken or quail is killed if
it is exposed or offered for sale after Dec.
31, the party can be prosecuted."
JUDCIE UTILE TALKS.
Judge Little of Junction City was in
town last night on his way homo from
Anthony, Harper county, where he had
been on legal business. Judge Little is the
very soul of good fellowship and has an
easy 'democratic way of doing and saying
things that makes him quite popular with
all those whom he meets on his trips. He
is a dyed in the wool Republican and nat
urally enough takes a deep interest in all
current political doings. He thinks that
either Perkins or Ingalls will bo the suc
cessor to Plumb and seems to think that
Perkins' chances for tho plumb
are the best. The judge is trim
ming his own sails for congress
next year, to succeed John Davis, and is
qnite positive that if he is not elected
some other good Republican will, as the
people of the district aro getting awful
weary of the Alliance representative, who
can do them no good whatever. Junction
City, he says, is doing well, and all the
prospects of the agricultural surroundings
are very bright. He thinks, however, that
things look better in the Arkansas valley
than anywhere else and paid a fine com
pliment to the wheat crop between here
aud Anthony. He said that Wichita is
livelier than he over saw it before, and ho
has been making periodical visits here for

It has always been the custom in all the

to be procured at midnight on Dec. SL
Now Wichita should not fall behind m
this matter any more than she has in any
thing else. The music made by the bells
of Cincinnati is simply grand and is heard
at no other time. This Ls a matter in
which all can join, be he Protest-mt,
Catholic, atheist, agnostic, drunkard or
dude. Wichita has enough large fine bells
to make music enough to be beard for
miles around. For tne past three years
only the discharge of some eight or ten j

the county and surrounding country.have
been more than pleased at their liberal
patronage and have purchased liberally.
The wholesale trade iu Wichita is growing
steadily, and the men engaged therein are
pleased, with the past year, and extremelj'
sanguine as to next year's business.
Editor M. M. Lee of the Republican
Banner of Greensburg, with Mr. A. R.
Norton a well known lumber merchant of
Greensburg, were here yesterday on busi
ness. These gentlemen were calling upou
Senator Bentley, Gerald Yolk, and other
business men in the city. Messrs. Lee
and Norton, who are prominent Republi
cans of Kiowa county, say that that they
are for a man from tne southwestern por
tion of Kansas, for senator to succed Sena
tor Plumb. They are greatly interested
in the early building of the Wichita and
Western railway through from Mullin

There was a family reunion held a few
days ago at the family residence of Mr.
nnd Mrs. Piere Hall which was participat
ed in by all of the family of Mr. and Mrs.
John Stetler of AYellington, who are the
parents of Mrs. Hall. Besides the father
and mother there were present Mr. and
Mrs. Hall, Mr. and Mrs. St. Clair of Bello
Plaine and Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Stetler of
this city. They all had a delightful time
aud one that will be remeaibered as oao
of the most enjoyablo events iu their lives.
Bert Minnicb, a well known young mer
chant of Derby, was here yesterday, deal
ing with the whoiesalo merchants. He
reports a fino business in his town, consid
erable grain coning in, and trade very
fair. He says that a good, heavy, soaking
rain would suit the farmers, though noth
ing is suffering at this time. Since the
affliction of his father, A. Minnicb, who
was stricken with paralysis a few years
since, Bert has carried on the business at
the old stand in Derby.
Ernest Dreves, a well known and pros
perous German farmer of Valloy Center
township was in the city yesterday on
business of importance. Mr. Dreves has
an important financial scheme on band,
in which several of his Wichita friends
are taking an active interest.
Again last night there wa3 a large
audience to seethe Payton Comedy com
pany in "Josh Whitcomb." Isaac Payton
in the title role was fine, playing it true to
nature. Mattie Keoue as "Tot" was good,
and her songs in tho first net were greeted
with great rounds of applause. Tonight
they will produce Tillotson's four act
comedy drama, "The Planter's Wife," a
fine military drama.
Tonight the drawing for the handsome
silk dress will take place. Remember the
ticket that draws the dress must be in the
THE LAUGHING EAGE.
The screaming farce comedy, "Skipped
by the Light of the Moou," will bo pre
sented at the opera house Tuesday even
ing. The best advice to give about this
piece is to go aud see it. No matter how
deep-eeated may be the blues, "Skipped"
will banish them. The St. Louis Globe
Democrat has this to say about it:
"Any one who has ever seen 'Skipped by
the Light of the Moon' in former seasons,
should go around to the Standard this
week, if only to learn how great an im
provement has been worked in this great
farcical comedy. Under the management
of Fowler & Warmiugton the laughable
features have beeu intensified and the
whole is one stirring succession of comi
cal creation and odd mishaps that force
the tears and pain the audience with a
superfluity of mirth.
