I sec it yet o'er the sea of years
That sweeps life's stormay way,
And mine eyes are dimmed with falling tears,
For that old home far away.
The nodding trees their shadows swing
Across the open door
That our eager feet no more shall greet
Ere wc cross to the fadeless shore.
The sweet perfume of the lilac's bloom,
As its purpling blossoms swung
Like a censor rare, on the summer air
'Neath the trees where the redbreast sung;
Comes to me yet with a vain regret,
And I dimly see once more
Our mother fair, with silvery hair,
As she sat by the open door.
Can bear again the evening prayer
She taught us by her knee.
Ah! mother dear, you wait us yet
Beyond life's troubled sea.
Oh', mystic chords of memory,
"What power to you is given
To bring us back our vanished youth,
And dear ones long in heaven.
A hand-clasp, or sweet music's power.
The lilac's purple bloom,
"Will bring us back to childhood's hour
And ope the darksome tomb.

The Flambeaus and Plumed Knights of

J. "W. Carncr ten years ago made Kip
Van "Winkle his specialty, and was consid

ferson, who has been looked upon as tho
only "Hip" since Mr.'Camcr lias engaged
at playing a promiscuous line of characters.
A farmer named G. S. ICadish who lives
three miles from Derby was robbed of S20
on Friday night last in this city. The rob
bery occurred on Main street but wc were
unable to learn whether it was in a house or
on tho street. His pocket was cut open
with a knife and the money gobbled.
The beautiful and noiseless Domestic sew
ing machine that took seven premiums at
the fair, can be seen in the window of Tlios.
Shaw & Co., where it is operated and kept,
along with an illuminated movable sign, in

and where both make a very pretty display.
"Waite's Union Square Comedy company

"Damon and Pythias," before a large and
well pleased audience. The talented com

by our citizens whenever they may return.
The bright new town of Goddard, named
for the best General Freight Traffic Mana
ger in tho west, is about to be Incorporated,
at least her citizens have taken the necessary
steps, and will present their petition to
Judge Sluss within a short time. Sedgwick
county, within three years, will have eight
incorporated cities and towns within her
borders, may be nine.
Sjiecial attention is called to the artistic
arrangement of the show windows of Kobi
son ltros., and Munson, and tho elegant, rich
and beautiful goods there on exhibition;
and also to the handsome millinery to be
seen at Mrs. Kramer's, Mrs. Sherman's and
Mrs. KlenU's show windows. They are
enough to make one wish he was cither a
milliner or a millionaire.
We learned at twelve o'clock last night
that Mr. Popene of the Occidental had sold
his interest in the hotel but we were unable
to get particulars. It seems that Mr. Pop
enoe had placed his interest in the hands of
II. G. Lee for sale and the sab: was consu
mated about midnight. We could not learn
who the buyer is.
SCIENCE AND SKILL.
What is accomplishmcd by skill, Prof
Samuels, the great optician came for the
first time to Wichita about eight months
ago, he remained with us for only four
weeks, when he was called away to St. Joe,
Mo. While here on that visit lie fitted a
great many people with his glasses and each
of them speaks of them in the highest terms.
Here is a letter from a well-known gentle
man. His word will have great weight with
Wichita, Kan., Oct. 3, 1881.
Prof. Samuels : Dear Sir It affords mo
pleasure to inform you that the glasses you
fitted to my wife s eyes about eight weeks
ago, have given the fullest of satisfaction.
My wife used to complain for a good many
years with headache and when out she
usea to complain 01 dizziness, ana not oeing
able to read at any length of time. Your
classes have remieu all difficulties. There
conld be no consideration that would in
duce her to give her glasses up. My wife
and myself would adviso any and all per
sons to call on you. What is money in
comparison with suffering. I trust that all
will avail themselves of this opportunity b
calling on you, I remain yours wit
thanks. Horace CARrjevreR.

The Sedgwick City l'antagraph says
thntsomo publisher of a paper in Wichita,
folded n lot of real estate advertisements in
his paper and 'sent them out at publisher's
rates, thereby defrauding thegovernment
and violating aery stringent law. Tho
Pantagraph says no honest publisher would
allow any man to ui-e his paper to circulate
such mutter simply to avoid paying postage
Wo do not know who it was, although
one. paper a short time since printed a lying
communication on the postmaster of this
city, and ho may have been defrauding the
government with the tamo issue.
J. G. Steflee, teacher of our high school,
wishes to thank Mr. Herring.and Miss Wood,
of this city, for a largo number of botanical
sheets contributed to the high school Hcr
baruui which now contains about one uun
dreil and fifty tjn-ciinen. Mr. S. pro
cured tho skin of tho large pelican that hung
in the horticultural hall during the fair but
it was so badly spoiled that only the head
and neck could be preser; ed for mounting.
All zoological, geological, botanical and an
tomological s)ccimcns contributed to the
high school will be properly mounted, clas
sified and marked with the name of tho contributor.
Birds of a feather flock together. When
you sec a couple of girls walking arm in arm
and wearing campaign caps, the names on
tho bands are nearly always noticed to be
alike and it now seems that they do not as
formerly pair off on account of friendships
so much as politics, and thus tho undercur
rent dcvelopcs the fact that man is not tho
only element in tho great national struggle
that is upon us.
Kodgers, photographer, took the first
premium on tho photography at the fair.
Ho has the collection that won tho prize
nicely arranged ia his gallery, P4, Douglas
a;enue, and they are as fine specimens of ar
tistic photography as can be found anywhere
in this country. The display is well worthy
of inspection. Mr. Kogers employs but
first-class artists, and the collection which
he exhibited at tho fair certainly gave evi
dence of superior artistic skill.
A deplorable affray took place last evening
at the Douglas avenue house in wliieh pro
prietors and lessees were unpleasantly en

theso bitter feelings culminated in one per
son being pretty badly beaten by one of the
antagonistic party, while a second one of the
attacking party, as is reported, would not al

from, a shameful beating a the bands of a
powerful young one. This affsjir is to bo de

Mr. David Hays returned yesterday from
St. Louis and Chicago where he had been
several weeks on business. Ho ays while
the Kantas displav of ! fruit at St. Louis
didn't reach within forty rod of tho display
made at Topeka and Cincinnati by Sedg
wick county, jet it was away ahead of all
other dUplays there. "Ve asked Mr. Hays
about politics. Ho says he gave more or
less time every day to talking with heavy
manufacturers and merchants from New
York and other eastern cities, but principally
from Xcw York, and Democrats and Be-
publicans alike, or the great majority of
them with whom he talked, entertained but
the one opinion, that Blaine would be tho
next president. The greater number said
that tho country could not afford a change
at this time. Ono prominent manufacturer
of shirts, from Kew York, who employ over
one thousand hands, said he was for Blaine
and the Bcpublican party in the interest of
tho business of tho country, and that Now
York would give tho Bcpublican party an
$13 6j to the St. Louis Fair.

trip tickets to St. Louis, good until Oct. 13,
returning, at $13. Co each, for the round trip,
