The following is the annual report of
Mrs. J. L. Dyer, secretary of the Child
'Tjookinsr back to that daw four years
ago, when a few charitable ladies met to
try and do something lor me nomeieaa
waifs of our city, and then casting our
eyes over the scene before us, it seems
wonderful to think that this should have
been the outgrowth of that, and once
more we are impressed with the import
ance of small beginnings. From the first
this work has made steady progress, but
the vear mist nassed has been the most
eventful of any in the history of the home.
A year ago we gathered for aunual
meeting in our old quarters on tfenn are
nue a small, rented house with many
inconveniences, and entirely inadequate
to the needs of the work. Today we sit m
our own commodious building, well
furnished and equipped for our needs, and
standing in tne miust or our own spacious
grounds. Tin's result lias been largely
due to the faithful devotion and untiring
zeal of our president. In her tertile brain
and large heart originated the idea of the
"brick books," which was tiie starting
point of the whole matter. When once
the friend of the children knew what was
needed, right nobly did they respond. We
had to but express a wish and
lo, like a scene from a fairy
tale, every thins sprang up to our
hand. In looking over the year's history
we see how all this has come about, and
the record of each month marks a mile
stone on our journey towards our goal.
Iu June the building committee, after
much deliberation, purchased lots on
College Hill, at a cost of S50S.G0. This was
indeed an important step; and oh! how
nroud wa felt when we realized that we
were "property owners." Then came the
problem of a house; should we buna or
buy? Much time and careful thought
was devoted to this matter. Persons own
ing vacant houses were visited; carpenters
and architects interviewed, aud business
men consulted. Finally the September
record shows that a house had been bought
of Major Powell, and contract made lor
moving it. At this time our hearts were
saddened by the removal from us of our
dear co-laborer Mrs. Shields, who had
beeu such a faithful worker in our ranks.
In October came our annual donation day,
which brought us many nice donations,
and added $11.50 to our building fund. In
November we had the joy of moving "out
of the old house iuto the now," and it was
certainly a time of general rejoicing. In
this month also came our Thanksgiving
donation, which kept a number of us
busy all day unloading parcels, and left
our storehouse fairly running over with
good things. Later in the month wo bad
au old fashioned "house-warming,"
when many of those interested in
the work, both gentlemen and ladies,
came out to the home and spent an enjoy
able evening with light refreshments and
a spicy little program. December brought
the glad Christinas time, and it was de
lightful to see how, amid the whirl of
holliday cares and pleasures, many a lov
ing thought found its way to the home in
the shape of gifts for the little folks.
Twenty happy boys aud girls sat down to
their Chusimas dinner, for which Mr.
Mnjor kindly provided two nice turkeys.
When we gathered for our January meet
ing aud transformed our reception loom
iuto a thing of beauty. A bright new car
pet, lace curtains, handsome furmtuieand
even pictures on the walls had all been
generously donated by our kind friend Mr.
Cash Henderson. And so on thiongh the
entire year, each month has brought its
own fresh proof that the Children's home
has secured a permanent place in the
hearts of Wichita's people, and that over
an is our iratuer's loving nana, xurougn
all the confusion aud extra work of build
iug the new house, the regular routiue of
the home lias gone faithfully on. Tho
directors have met every mouth to trans
act business and consult the best interests
of the work; the ouly variation being that
during the summer mouths the time of
meeting was changed from the afternoon
to tue forenoon, aud so in the cool morn
iug hours the busy housewives
luid aside home cares and gathered to
plan work for those who, but for such
gatherings, might be wandering on the
streets homeless and friendless. Our
president, though pressed with many
family cares, has never once faltered in
her duty to the home, but has ever been
active, ever faithtul and ever on tiie alert
to advance the interests of the cause so
dear to her heart. The other officeia and
members of the board have also been
faithful, rallying around their leader and
seeking to hold up her hands. Our mat
ron, too, has stood faithfully at her post
through all the work and worries inci
dent to the year's changes, and never once
have we found a duty neglected or u task
unperformed. Looking after the moral
and spiritual welfare of tho children a?"
well as their bouily comfoit, she has ever
proven herself a second mother to the lit
tle ones, making for each aud all a warm
place in her great, loving heart. Tho vis
iting committees have carefully looked
after the wants of the home, and through
their solicitations many valuable dona
tions hive been secured. These visitors
have always been unanimous in reporting
everything at the home beautifully neat
and clean and the money placed with, the
matron carefully and wisely expended.
During the year rifty-five children have
been received into the home: forty-nine
have been placed in homes or recalled
by friends aud two have listened
to tho loving call of their Heavenly Father
aud gone to brighten the homo above.
Many comforts, conveniences and even
luxuries have been added to the home this
i ear, and considerable work has been done
on the giounds to beautify them. Through
the winter there was considerable sickness
among the members of the family, both
old and youug, owing to la grippe and
other prevailing diseases; but we are very
thankful to have escaped so well as we
have, and feel that in view of all the bless
ings which hae come to ns during the
year, this should be u gala day. And yet,
as the brightest day ha its sUadows, and
the sweetest mubie its miuor strain, so in
the midst of our gludness comes a thrill of
pain which touches all hearts alike. Ever
aince our last annual meeting we have
rested uuder the shadow of a fear that our
loved president might possibly leave us.
Through tho past months this fear has
giadually grown into a certainty, until
toduy we sit under a cloud so dark as
almost to shut out tho light of this bright
day. Still, we know, somehow, it must
be right, for Mrs. Foster would never
williugly give up this work which has
grown to be a part of her very life, did she
not feel that duty bade her do so. God.
who has guided her all hf r life, is surelv
guiding her iu this, and in other fields,
and among other fi lends. He is calling her
to work for him. And so we try to look
up to his face aud say it must be right,
and, though our hearts ache, we lovingly
bid her Godspeed, only asking that He
cares for the sparrows, may raise up for
us another to fill the place she leaves va-cent.

An Almost Incredible Story of Apache
Endurance and Canning.
I saw Geroaimo and a dozen of his
Apaches do something in Arizona in 1S87
which I would never have believed possi
ble had I not witnessed it with my own
The Apaches are unquestionably the
most dreaded tribe of Indians on this con
tinent. They are tougher, more enduring
and more unconquerable than any other of
their race. An Apache can lope up the
side of a mountain with the thermometer
marking 120 degs., and when he reaches
the top he won't show a drop of extra
perspiration, nor will he breathe a whit
faster than when he started. He will go
for days without a morsel of food or a drop
of water; he will live on snakes, mice and
refuse, or if the worse comes to the worse
he will shoot his horse and eat what he
wants of him raw.
Set out to pursue a band of Apache raid
ers, and if they are hard pressed they will
separate, each one for himself, so that the
only way to keep up the pursuit is to fol
low them individually, in which case the
Apache is sare to have the best end of the
contract. When the hunfisover the dusky
miscreants will come together at some
point twenty or thirty miles away.
There were twenty-five of us cavalrymen
returning from one of our fruitless pur
suits of the terrible Geronimo. Our horses
were worn out and so were we. It was one
of the hottest days I have ever known in
that throbbing furnace of a country. We
had several miles of baked alkali plain
still before reaching the fort, where we
could secure shade and water, and what
we needed most of a.11 else rest.
Whewl but it was hot. Had not the air
been perfectly dry neither man nor beast
could have stood it. The metal work on
our guns was so heated that no one could
bear to touch it with the naked hand. The
air shimmered and throbbed as it does over
a newly plowed field at noontide of a sum
mer day. North, east, south and west was
one level stretch of plain, on which not a
tree, shrub or even a blade of grass crew.
Far to the westward could be seen the out
lines of the fort, oddly distorted through
the quivering atmosphere, but in every
other direction was the naked, burning
We were strung along for a distance ol
several hundred yards. In f.act there was
a squad of five horsemen much farthei
than that to the rear. All the animals
were plodding slowly through the sand,
which, it seemed to me, was hot enough to
roast eggs, tnoir heads drooping, while we
were simply enduring it, grimly closing
our teeth, holding out to reach the post.
Was there anything to ba apprehended
from Geronimo? Could we old campaign
ers be entrapped? Low, level sand on every
hand. Well, right there in the midst oi
that flaming plain, with its horrible sandy
waste in which no spear of grass could
find root, that frightful chieftain and his
Apaches ambuscaded us. It sounds in
credible, hut it is the fact.
Suddenly I heard rifle firing at the rear.
It was a dull, odd sound, but was close at
hand, and as I turned in the saddle I saw
that the squad farthest away was engaged
in a desperate fight with a party of Indian
who wero on foot, shooting, striking and
darting hither and thither like so many
We instantly wheeled and hurried back
as fast as we could to the help of our com
rades, but before we could reach them
three saddles wero emptied and Geronimo
and his warriors were scurrying across the
plain at a speed greater than any to which
we could force our exhausted ponies, who
sunk to tbtir fetlocks at every step. We
gave them a parting volley, which wounded
several, but they managed to limp off with
the help of the others, and all were soon
beyond danger. I don't know how far
they traveled over that burning desolation,
but it may have been many miles, for they
were capable of doing it if they chose.
Those Apaches must have discovered oui
approach while we were a good way off.
Knowing wa were on our return to the
post, they could easily calculate where we
would pass. They then burrowed in the
sand, covering themselves entirely with
the blistering particles so that only their
snaKeiiiio eyes peerea iortn. Tnus we
passed within a few rods of them without
suspecting their presence. Minneapolis

"Do you see that tall, spare man lean

James Vance, steward of the Athenian

in which he played an amusing part.
Some years ago Haquette & Kaggeman
got in a big safe, ail gorgeous with paint
and glorious with impossible landscapes.
Ernest Haquette was very proud of it,
and in his bustling, eager way would
show it to all old patrons of the place,
expatiating upon its merits.
"One evening he was engaged in show
ing a party of gentlemen tho wonders of
tho safe, and ran on; No burglar could
ever get into that, I tell you. He couldn't
open it in a week. It's the safest saf o in
this town, for money.'
" 'Oh, I don't know about that,' said
that tall man, who was then leaning on
the bar just as he is now leaning on the
rail. 'I don$ think it's so safe.'
"This startled Haquette a little. No
one had ever questioned that safe before
in that off hand way. He flushed a lit
tle while the stranger regarded him non
chalantly. Haquette felt nettled and at
last blurted out:
Til put $500 in that safe and if you
can get it out in six hours you can have
it. Axes, jimmies and all tools are al
lowed, but dynamite barred.'
" '111 go you,' said our tall friend.
'We'll just make it half an hour and nc
"Haquette promptly damped $500 into
a bag, put the bag into the safe and
turned the combination. 'There you
are,' he said defiantly.
"The tall man got down on his knees,
put an ear against the safe where the
tumblers work and began turning the
knob of the combination. He didn't say
a word, but steadily clicked away. Ha
quette began to sweat and step around.
"In twenty-three minutes tho safe was
open. Our friend over there took the
bag of money, handed it to the dun

A Number of Details Pertaining to tho
Subject of Formal Visiting.
The usual hours for general visiting are
between 3 and 6 o'clock. Formal calls
should not be made before luncheon.
When strangers arrive in your city to
whom you wish to show civility the first
step is to call upon them. In France the
newcomer pays tho first call, but this is
not the custom in our country.
It is not good breeding to invite people
to your house until you have left cards
upon them, though this courtesy is some
First calls should always be promptly re
turned; that is, within seven days. If a
first call is immediately followed by an in
vitation to some entertainment the call
bhould be returned at once and not delayed
until after the entertainment. After the
entertainment a second call should be made.
The recipient of any especial hoSDitalitv.
such as a dinner, luncheon, breakfast,
dance, etc., should call thereafter as soon
as possible. After having been invited to
visit in a country house a call should be
made upon those extending the invitation
immediately after their return to the town
residence. After a lady is married her ac
quaintances should soon call upon her.
A gentleman should wait fof a lady to
signify that his presence in her house will
be agreeable. A card from her giving no
nce ot a aay at home or containing an in
vitation to some entertainment, of course,
gives him the entree to her hone.
If a gentleman or lady is making a call
and other guests arrive, the first comers
should withdraw w ithin a little while.
A gentleman should immediately rise
when ladies or older gentlemen enter or
leave a room in which he is sitting.
An unmarried or younger lady should
also rise when married or older ladies en
ter the room, and also when they leave it.
To the foregoing hints gi en by a woman
of society in a little handbook on "Man
ners," it may be added that if you receive
cards to a series of "at homes" and for
some good reason cannot accept the invita
tion, you should send your card on the last

How Animals Bear Fain.
One of the pathetic things connected
with this kaleidoscopio nonsense people
call life is tho manner in which the animal
kingdom endures suffering. Take horses,
for instance, in battle, and after the first
shock of a wound they make no sound.
They bear tlie pain with a mute, wonder
ing endurance, and if at night you hear a
wild groan from the battlefield it comes
from their loneliness, their loss of that hu
man companionship which seems absolute
ly indispensable to the comfort of domesti
The dog will carry a broken leg for days
wistfully, but uncomplainingly. The cat,
stricken with club or stone or caught in
some trap from which it gnaws its way to
freedom, crawls to some secret place and
bears in silence pain which we could not
endure. Sheep and other cattle meet the
thrust of the butcher's knife without a
sound, and even common poultry endure
intense agony without complaint.
The dove, shot unto death, flies to some
far off bough, and as it dies the silence is
unbroken save by the patter on the leaves
of its own life blood. The wounded deer
speeds to some thick brake and m pitiful
submission waits for death. The eagle,
struck in midair, fights to tlie last against
the fatal summons. There is no moan or
sound of pain, and the defiant look never
fades from it3 eyes until the lids close over
them never to uncover again. Florida
Stopped the Miracles.
The tomb of Saint Etienne de Muret,
canonized in 10S3, in the Abbey of
Grandmond, was so great an offender
on account of the number of miracles
that the religious were completely worn
out by the rush of votaries. The priot
devised, however, a very simple but ef
fective remedy for this grievance. Be
taking himself to the tomb, he spake as
follows: "Servant of God, you preached
tons the delights of solitude and yet
you assemble in our retreat as many
people as if it were a market or a fair.
We are sufficiently persuaded of your
eanctity not to be curious about your
miracles. If, then, you will not leave
off working thein, we protest and declare
on high, in virtue of the obedience we
have promised you, that we will un
earth j'our bones and throw them into
the river." As might be expected, the
threat was sufficient, and Saint Etienne
de Muret did no more miracles. All tha

It is a common belief at the present
time in south Germany that if children
play soldiers very often in the street
there is a war coming, and if they play
