YARDS AND LAWKS.
I is worth one's time to ride over the
city and take note of the gardens and or
namental work of the yard and lawns.
The growth of vegetables, vines, herbs
and shrubs is really wonderful in their
vrdancy. There has not in the memory
of man been a more luxuriant and pro
fuse display of roses. The bushes are
literally smothered with them and their
fragrance perfumes the air in exotic
sweetness. Champ ClarK, on uitung
aenu has a veritable orchards of black
fa' rries, raspberries, strawberries so laden
with blossoms and developing fruit that
astonishes the senses.
One American beauty rose bush, not
higher than three feet has some forty
blooms and is a tropical delight. Mr.
Clark picked a strawberry from his vines
o large that Captain Burgess had to di
vide it in sections before he could get it
In his mouth.

A RUSSIAN MARRIAGE MARKET.
Perhaps the best known of these Rus
sian marriage markets is the one which
takes place annually at Klui, near Mos
cow, and which has just been held with
the usual success. It occurs during the
week of Epiphany (Russian style.) and
all the young women who wish to get
married in the course of the year are
mustered in a long row in the principal
street of that large and staggling country
town. In order to make themselves at
tractive to the young men who come to
see and admire them, they wear nearly
all their belongings on their backs. Their
finerly does not consist only of their best
clothes, but it includes a lot of old fam
ily trinkets, sometimes valuable scarfs,
cloaks, and furs, heavy silver jewelry,
and necklaces, jackets showing rows of
prettily clselated or filigree silver buttons
and many of the girls bring even their
linen and other domestic property along
with them in gaudily painted chests and
trunks, sitting on them like dragons
watching a treasure.
After exposing themselves for hours to
the close inspection of would-be bene
aiqts, the girls march off in a procession
to church, there to perform at the shrine
of some saint particularly potent in pro
curing connubial bliss, such at St.
Chrysostom and St. Niazanzen, worship
ful prayers. On the way to church it is
only permissible but good form for the
young men to follow and accost one or
the other of the girls in the way of con
versation. If any two of the young people think
they would suit one another, a formal
visit is paid by the intended groom to
the parents. But before the actual mar
riage is arranged a number of inter
views take place between the respective
parents, every item of the trousseau being
exacted beforehand and noted down as
part of the bride's dowry. Harper's
CHOICE OF THE PIVOTAL STATES
Whatever of doubht may nave lingered
in the minds of some as to Judge Parker
being the next Democratic nominee for
President must surely be now dispelled
by the action of the other pivotal and nec
essary, state, Indiana, in sending to tho
national convention a solid Parker dele
gation, instructed to vote for him as a
unit Thus one by one we have seen
three of the most important states New
York, Connecticut and Indiana swing in
to line with instructed delegations for
Parker, while New Jersey, West Virginia,
Massachusetts and Pennsylvania havve,
in effect, done the same thming by in
dorsing the New York Judge as second
choice. Atlanta Journal.
Mrs. Bertha Drenncn, a widow, at
Washington, died of heart failure within
a few hours after she had learned of the
appointment of her son as a cadot at
West Point. Joy is said to have caused
tho heart affection.

Makes Suggestions as to
How to Build a Wichita.
To the Editor of the Eagle.
For rent, any corner on the sidewalk on
any street in the city. Apply to the occu
pant of the abutting property. Empty
bottles or cases' and puddles of water run
ning across the sidewalk cut no ice.
If Is lived on North Market street or
Tenth street between Lawrence and Main
I would charter a car and take the resi
dents of those streets to St. Louis and
walk them through a resident portion,
Van Deventer place, so they could get
an inspiration and a few pointers on how
to. improve and beautify the unimproved
space la tho middle of those streets. A
little money, a little muscle and Market
street could be made the handsomest
street in the city.
Old time nasty streets will the mer
chants stand to have ouc-streets reeking
with filth soaked down, not even the
crossings kept clean, while heretofore,
with the white wings ladies could cross
the streets from store to store with light
low shoes on and not soil them? Now
they need rubber boots.
Said one grafter to another grafter yes
terday afternoon, when they met on
Douglas avenue: "This town is punk. I
have failed to work a single merchant so
far, and my graft has never been worked
in this town, either." Said' the other
grafter: "I am going to work my hotel
for tomorrow's, board and leave town
Monday and hunt a town where suckers
'Tis pity 'tis, 'tis true, that people will
steal flowers. I have neighbors who grow
beautiful roses in their yards, and thieves
come along and steal them. It cannot be
that they enjoy flowers, that they pull a
handful only to carry a short distance
and drop on the street. Such persons
only give themselves away, because any
one seeing them knows that they don't
Speaking of the St. Louis fair and of Its
incompleteness, I beg to say that there is
enough completed to occupy the attention
of the most industrious observer for sev
eral months to come. If you want to
find unfinished work it Ib to bo found, but
the buildings are finished, the grounds
arc nearly completed. There need not be
any hesitancy on the part of any one
about going now for fear of tho unfin
ished condition. The government build
ing alone has enough in it to keep one
busy for a week from sunrise until mid
night. The Pike, you may be sure, is
complete in every detail. The Philippine
grounds are complete, forty acres of Mis
souri woods, with here and there a bam
boo house occupied by the most com
pletely dressed lot of men since the day
Adam was invited to leave the Garden,
save possibly the fact that they use much
less material in their suits.
I wish the people of this city would
.hurry up and sign up on the gas con
tracts. Gas Is preferable to coal at the
same price. If in the use of operating
machinery, It saves a stoker, saves ma
chinery, and is cleaner and quicker. If
in a grate in your home one only needs
a match. If in the furnace a match is all
that isjf needed. No annoyance of cOal
wagons filling up cellar with slack and
tal; no ashes; no furnace cleaning. Why
don't yqu telephone in your name or sign
up contracts at once and let us have gas
for next winter? Don't you flatter your
selves for a moment that the rate on coal
will be"x;ut fifty per cent. Even if they
made the price of coaft equal gas is prefer
able. The resident on University avenuo said
to the resident on Lawrence avenue:
"When. are you going to pave?"
In St. Louis they are putting down four
kinds of pavement in the aristocratic res
ident portion of the city: cedar blocks
thoroughly saturated with tar and a
coating of tar poured over them filling up
the crevices; aspralt; brick laid as the
postoffice grounds in this city were built,
and a patent combination of sand, crush
ed stone and cement. The latter for wear
and endurance and slippery weather has
been pronounced the best. The cost is a
fraction more than any other kind of
pavement, and ought to be if It is so
much better, which is claimed for it. The
reason given by the parties who are using
cedar blocks is that it Is noiseless and
heavy traffic is positively forbidden to
travel on it, it will last for ages. "The
way traffic of any kind Is kept out of
these fine resident streets is that one end
of the streets is closed; but carriages and
pedestrians are allowed to travel on these
streets. The streets are kept clean, most
of them, by white wings, with the push
carts. One does not have to wade through
-filth in crossing the streets, because it is
cheaper. If each merchant will give 25
per cent of the money paid by our mer
chants for sprinkling, it will put two
white wings to the block, and if the mer
chants want the sprinkling continued,
they can get it done for less than tho
other 75 per cent.

Opinions of the Readers of the
Eagle on Current Topics.
. PARKIJv-GS TOO HIGH.
To The Eagle:
Which should be the highest, the walk
or the parking? That seems a foolish
Qusetion. when we consider that the pri
mary object of tho walk, is to keep us
out of tho mud and water when it rains.
Three grains of oommor, scisso applied,
should settle that question, and yet most
of the parking In Wichita is piled up
higher than tho walk, holding the water
back on the walk when it rains.
The city authorities ought to come in
with their good sense and authority and
settle that matter when "the people fail.

with disease-producing germs, sometime

ly reduce the diseases of children espe
cially, and the consequent awful rate of
mortality, particularly during the hot
summer months. Every competent phy
sician knows that a very large per cent
of the diseases of children Is due solely
to bad feeding, and bad milk is the most
potent nnd destructive enemy of Infantile
exlstoncecholera Infantum, bullous diar
rhea, and tho many ailments called
"summer' complaints." aro vastly more
preventable than curable. Milk is the
chief article of food for children during
the first year or two of th?lr existence,
and it is our solemn duty to protect
them from the use of an article thai Is
not absolutely pur cienn and healthful
in erry respect. Tho only way thl can
be dono Is to put the wholo dairy busi
ness under the supervision of a compe

To tho Kagla:
Allow me. an old iady, to contribute

to some of your readers. When I- was
