you away fi-eling that jou will loc the
whole world more and will emulate the do
otion that is sung in ciery land' of Pythias
One who knows s:is he saw the men last
vioning upon our streets, three of whom arc
notorious robbers and pickpockets, well
known to the Pinkerton agency as among
thuiery slickest men that traiel and ply
their nefarious trade. The other two arc
equally as bad but not so noted. He gave

Moffett & Hartrxll, proprietors of the

which will enable thorn to earn- a stock
of from $50,000 to S7f,000, which will be as
large a stock as any furniture house in Kan
sas City carries. (Jood for Wichita.
Six banks jn. Wichita! That's what we
said. One of the'in, on Thursday, tho Wich
ita National thinsactid business, that is its
clearings amounted to two hundred aud ten
thousand and odd dollars. Husincss done in
Wichita! Well we should reckon. It's all
business and nothing but husiuc. The
town comes nearer leing "old business him
self" than any weluie let read of. One
bank, in one day, two hundred and ten
thousand dollars and a daili nine column
morning, full-fledged paper filled with ad
vertisements of Wichita's business houses.
"Old business" did von sai !
LAST NIGHT'S PLAY.
The seating capacity of the opera house
was again taxed to its utmost last night at
the production of "The Widow Bedott" by
the celebrated Waite Union Square Comedy
Company. The audience was kept in n
tinual roars of laughter from the raise of tho
curtain to the close of the entertaini'icuL.
T. W. Canier as the poor lonesome "widow,"
was irresistibly funny. J. K. Waite was
particularly clever in his impersonation of the
"Deacon." The mirthful laughter and ap
plause of the audience wa unbounded. The
courtship sceno between the "Widow" and
"Deacon" brought the house down in a
storm of applause. Seldom has an audience
quitted our opera house in a happier mood
than arose last evening upn the fall of the
curtain upon the wedding dance. The
company appear this afternoon in a matinee
producing the comedy "That Jirl of
Brown'!,,, and close their engagement this
evening in "Damon and Pythias."
THE CLOSING HOURS.
Yesterday evening witnessed the closing
exercises of the greatest' county exposition
and agricultural lair ever held In the State
of Kansas. We say this for all it means and
without any fear of contradiction from any
quarter. A large number present on both
of the last two days, who had lisitexl the
state fairs at Topela aai Bismark on sc cral
occasions, declared that they never saw such
crow ds of people at cither place. The great
majority of people were citizens of Sedgwick
county, which made it peculiarly our own
show and the success therefore is our own.
Sumner, Hutlcr, Kingman and Harper coun
ties were all represented by quite a number
of people, but there were not one hundred
people present from beyond the confines of
the state. The weather was lery propitious
and liio stock of no description suffered.
Considering the great number of people, tins
three days witnessing the presence of twenty-
flietotwenti-scvcn thousand, the accidents
and casualties were indeed very few and
slight. The officers and directors aro
to lie conirratulatcd upon the
success of nearly ci cry feature of the enter
prise whilo the average citizen naturally
stood up taller and swelled out bigger in
glancing about over the unusual throng of
contented and happy people. The jiagle
has tried to givo a fair and honest report of
the more salient features of tho exposition
and whatever it lacked of detail was attri
butable to our want of room and not to in
disposition to to tell it all. It was impossi
ble to tell it all, in fact, cicn to sec it all.
The attractions being so numerous and con
stant. We heard no complaint or growling
that might be termed sueh, Tho cattle, hogs,
horses and sheep displays wcro not only
en-ditable but suth as to be proud of. Tho
fruit display excelled nnj thing of the kind
probably cier shown in the west, while the
corn, wheat and legetable were such as only
grow in tho great i alley. Let it be set down
in memory, in books and in flies of the Ea
gle that the Sedgwick county fair for 1884
was a great and unprecedented success of
which fanners, stock growers and business
men of Wichita were alike proud.
AN EXCHANGE OF COMPLIMENTS.
On Thursday night a shooting aft'ray took
place at ono of the noted bagnios in this
city which came lory near closing the
drama of life for a man who gave his name
as John Hart. This person had mado a call
at tho place referred to which resulted in
developing a misunderstanding between
himself and one of the soiled doves who was
an inmate of tho domicile. A war of
words ensued when the proprietress of the
den ordered tho man out of j tho house and
said, as the best information obtainable
shows, tint if he did not at once obey the
command sbo would shoot him. He
replied that he could shoot us well
M she but rather than haie
any further trouble he would go, and pro
ceeded to leaie; but just as he was about to
pass through the door this woman fired uj
on him, the bullet from her roiolvcr passing
through his hat aud cutting a small furrow
along his scalp. He was surprised, as he
did not expect her to fire and he had his
back toward her, but ho seems to haie
thought that it was now his turn, a? hedrew
liisreiolicr and fired upon the woman,
though his shot was harmless. Tho man at
this juncture left the house aud tiie
woman swore out a warrant for. him
both in the police court and the
justieo court. He was arrested
and apjieared before each, and
as he knew the ciidcnce would
all be against him and coming from
uch a source that he would stand no show
as to truthful eiidence and believing it the
cheapest way out of the difficulty", plead
guilty to the charge and wits fined $5.00 and
costs in each court, which was certainly a
cheap settlement of a difficult!- that came
lery near costing him his life.
This is but another argument against the
toleration of such places and an additionul
admonition to givo them a wido berth.

A beautiful trio.
Mr. J. W. Bear, as he came from the fair
last evening, was tottering under a load
which he carried in a basket and some assis
tance was offered him, but sitting down to
rest he uncovered the contents and lo, they
were pears; three pears which he had had
on exhibition at the fair and which were
marked by the committee, "best but not
full number" the full number for a com
plete display entitling to premium was made
to bo six, and but for the tact that the little
dwarf-tree about C feet high and 1 inches in
diameter had exhausted itself in bringing to
maturity these three monsters, Mr. Bear
would surely have captured the prize on
this kind of fruit, for of all tho immense
specimens of fruit that has made our "mouth
water" this l car in this great fruit country,
these three representatiies of tho Duchess de
Angoulcme were the most monstrous.
