TION. A tralkini; match commenced at tho rink
ycterdav forenoon tit 11 o'clock and will
continue for SO hourt, closinc at 11 o clock
to-nicliU Tho task undertaken, to be suc
cessfully accomplislied, will necessarily call
for both speed and endurance of a very high
order, and whether accomplished or not, the
contest thould make a spirited, exciting and
very interesting exhibition. Ir. Ilemman
is not the champion of the world for any
distance from one mile tip to tho six-day
record (G10 miles) as some time ago claimed
tv this paper, hut he claims that he U the
champion at pitrcinclv long distances, liav-
handsomely finished pictures that are always
to ho found at those gallerys. The raco is
nip and tuck.it being difficult to make a
decision as to who has the lead. The work
of each and both is of a high order of merit,
and worthy of the artists of tho large cities.
Sirs. II. (J. Hugplcs returned from Geuda
Springs on Monday, much improved in
health. She speaks in warm terms of the
virtue of the Eprings, and especially of the
management of the hotel by Messrs. Sheldon
& Sal ula.

time for that distance
It is not the intention of this paper to in
terfere with or belittle anyone or to attempt
to spoil their business anil it wishes every
honest cir.rt, success hut at the same time
the public is entitled to protection from
broadcast assertions. A representative pa
per is looked upon by tho public as some
thing of a critic in nil matters of general in
terest and must necessarily, for its reputa
tion, discriminate between the meritorious
and the mediocre.
In the article that appeared in this sheet
some time ago, there was no question made
as to whether .Mr. Hcrriman was a fast walk
er or capable of giving a thoroughly good
and entertaining exhibition mid tlic public
n-rrn tirrrd to iro and i-ec hinv- on general
iit-iririnW Tim exeentiotis were made sim
ply and only to the length of tho track; the
time w hich was gh en out for tho covering of
five miles; and tho sweeping nertion of Mr.
Hcrriman ns to his Vmg the champion of
the world, without stipulating or specifying
the particular distance or kind of a race, it
was entirely right. These things were
known to nil absolute certainty at the time,
or they would not havo been published.
.Now Mr. II. claims that ho is the champion
at fi.OOO miles and it may bo that he is,
especially as ho claims that his record was
made during the present year, nnd therefore,
cannot appear upon the annals where these
records are annually placed until March of
next year. At any rate Mr. Hcrriman has
demonstrated here" that he is a very speedy
walker and an enterprising and game man.
Ho Inn arranged in the nice now in procress
to be placed under the strict supervision of
a board 1 honorable citizens anu as
far as the exhibition is concerned, regard
less of the championship, it is safe to say
that the race will bo a thoroughly good one.
Mr. Hcrriman is working for a reputation
and honestly desires to accomplish tho task
that he umll'itook jesterday morning. His
speed, endurance and pluck are all of good
quality and he will doubtless accomplish
the task or make a linru and clo'o struggio
for it. Tiiis alony with tho two load run
ners, should make a first-class contest, and
one worthy of patronage from all. Last
night at !'.S0 o'clock the contest was being
fiercely waged, each contestant being in
fino condition and all doing good work. The
ecoro stood, Hcrriman, M miles and 17 laps;
Dugan, 41 miles nnd C laps, and Simons 4 J
miles and 17 laps.

The infant child of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. "V.

sad occurrence Unit deprived it of a moth
er's care, died on yesterday.
It will be remembered" that Mrs. 1'ructt
came to this city some time since with her
husband and infant child, that she became
despondent at being separated from her home
nnd re!aties and made an ineffectual at
tempt to take her life. She partially recov
ered though her mind seemed to bo some
what nll'ected, and when she returned to her
eastern home the child was placed in care
of kind friends bere. The fragile little flow
er, without the natural nourishment and
caro from its mother, soon pined, faded, and
duilv grew weaker, until yesterday whenit
passed to Him who said, ""Sutler little chil
dren to come unto Me, nnd forbid them not,
for such is the Kingdom of Heaven." The
funeral will take phicu to-day (Thursday) at
I! o'clock from the residence of.Mr.Kos Har

DEATH OF ANOTHER CHILD.
The little son of Jlr. and Mrs Frnnk Mu
ma, of Union township, died yesterday at
o'clock p. m., nged eighteen months. The
funeral will take place from tins family resi
dence at 11 o'clock this (Thursday morning.
The interment will be in the AVichita ceme
tery. Mr. L. Webster, who is the ngent for tho
Lamar nursery, of Ijimar, Missouri, and
who 1ms been "taking orders for somo time
past for fruit nnd ornamental trees from this
popular nursery, yesterday received two car
loads for delive'ry to his customers. The
trees of all varieties of fruit were done up
in bundles holes or trenches wcro dug in
the ground, the trees placed therein and the
root "o vored with earth. The trees arc
healthv looking and have splendid roots.
Thev arc two vcars old and stand seven feet
higli. Thev, both body nnd branches, have
been made bv tho knife. In even- particu
lar it is n most splendid invoice of fruit
trees and the large sales demonstrate the
popularitv of the firm from which they came
and the agent who handles this famous line
of goods. They can bo seen upon the va
cant lot opposite the trcmont house.
Mr. J. F. Kevnolds. of Goddard, was in
the citv yesterday and expressed surprise
at the news that lllaino would probably car
ry New York. Mr. Keynolds spent about
two mouths in that state last summer and
traveled about a good deal in the rural districts-
AVhen he got back to Wichita lie
told a reporter of this paper that, from what
he had gathered in conversation with per
sons who were generally rcpirded as good
authority, that the stale would go for Cleve
land bva large majority, lie also said that
his cousin, whose business took him all over
the state, cvprcscd the same opinion, al
