' THE WICHITA DAILY EAGLE: WICHITA. KANSAS. SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER, 9, 1884.
V.. M. MURDOCK, Editor.
SUNDAY MOUSING, NOV. 9.
Beautiful land; land I love,
y.iirerthan any that earth lias known,
Let one enter thy gate 'ncath the ehadow
To uutxlur again m-ar my childhood'
For oft as the curtains of night are drawn,
Decked hero and there villi eihery
I mss through the imstic portals of sleep,
To enter the beautiful land of dreams.
I hear the inunncr of mountain rills,
Sec the csimscn and gold of the maple's
And the wild winds sweep o'er the pine
And rustle the boughs of the hemlock
There are faces there, divinely fair.
That beam on my lision with rapture
I hear the echo of is ell-loved tones,
And my mother smiles, ai of old she
The v,ce bright-head of my baby girl,
1 Ii pillowed again on my aching breast,
And neck encircled by baby arms,
I sweetly sleep and dream, and rest.
Tho music soft, of familiar tones,
Mav neer fall on mv uakine car.
And tho forms I" clasp 'inid tho land of
The sod ha hidden for many a jear.
Busy hamlets now stand where the wild
wood Once gleamed with the maple and ash,
Gone! gone arc the haunts of my child
hood, And silent the mountain streams ripple and
Then matters it net if the night be dark,
Or silvery lights by moonbeams glow,
So I but ms tlirough the gates of sleep,
To tho Lord and lost of long ago.
Mrs. M. E. Lkask.
Wichita, Nov. 8. 84.
Tho cheek of Boss Mannning and the gall
of IJarnum stand monumental and unap
proachable. There is one consolation and
that is that they made fools of all tho Demo
crats in the country night beforo last.
HER NAME IS MARIA.
Tho Beacon comes out last evening with a
glaring head Tine, "Carry the news to Han
nah." "We thought our contemporary bet
ter posted as to Cleveland' woman's name.
Her name is not Hannah, but Maria.
AN ORIGINAL BOOMER-
WicniTA, K.. Oct. 8, 1884.
To the Kdltorof thr Dally haile.
Now that the election is over, and the ex
citement consequent thereon has settled
down, pleao contradict the statement that I
was arrcited and put in tho guard house at
Fort Itcno; alo ho kind enough to contra
dict the statement that I was "led astray by
D. L. Payne." Its a frigid day when your
humble ren ant is led astray by anybody.
As regard matters which gjvo tho to the
roport jou published, more when I shall re
cehe a communication which I am expect
ing from the honorable commUtioiur of In
dian uflair. Yours, etc.,
W. 11. Hutchinson.
Totht EIUrft(.t l.ly funic.
Here are a few pointers for the "bird."
The conimirtium-ni caiitaid the oteof
the county to-day, and time were 2,0.".0
olev polled. ThoMOmgo Bepublicin ma
jority is about MW. The county tickets were
not political, one :t People's ticket" nomi
nated at Anthonj, and tho other a "CitirenV
ticket at Harper. Tho former elected rep
rrvntathc and district clerk by a largo ma
majority, and the latter elected probate
judge, county attorney und superintendent
by reduced majorities
Tho Harper fellows had a littl county
Mat ote of their own, but it was without
any authority o." law and w ill come to naught.
Ono half of the electors did not ,oto on tho
subject at all, as they had been notified by
the board of commissioners that tho election
would be null and void. Tho county attor
ney obtained an injunction from Judge
Slu's restraining the commissioners from
making any canvass of the vote on "county
scat," " so ono by one the roses fall."
General Manager Miller and Chief Engi
neer Woods, of the "Sunflower," are in town
to-night. They say thutthe road is booming
right along and if the weather holds out
good they will soon bo here. Then all your
little booms will bo declared oil', and in order
to see a good one jou will liae to come to
the " future great."

MUSIC AND THU DRAMA IN WICHITA.
A Weekly Review of Music, Art and the
Drama, Prepared Expretsly for the Eagle.
To the CdUor of the Daily Kaglt:
Fcrtiiku Developments. And now we
arc to have a glee club, and already our fem
inine imaginations aro responding to the
sound of manly 'xoices and midnight scr
nades. It was whispered gently at first. I
tried not to hear it, but as it grew louder and
more frequent, I concluded it was public
property; so I'll tell you nil about it.
There is Mr. Collins, who is one of the
tenors. I am told he has a very nice voice.
He is a comparative stranger in our midst,
having recently come to the city. Throngh
this medium he will soon be well, and I trnst
favorably known. Wo have more tenor in
Mr. Xorthup, who will sharo the laurels
with Mr. Collins. Messrs Clark, Hull and
Hamilton will stir the depths with their well
balanced bass notes. Mr. Aldin figures as
the baritone I will not betray the pro
gramme they hac in rehearsal, I am sure it
will be mora satisfaction to be apprised of
that fact through the medium of their own
oicca. In wishing this project unbounded
success, I am, I feel confident, but echoing
the sentiments of all our music-Io ing people.
Our Ciicbch Choirs The time has come
when our strictest church members aro be
ginning to think with Charlei Wesley, that
the dctil shall not have all the good music
in the world. Tho Kcv. J. W. McCormick
once remarked that if it wcro said of men
in general, "Tho man that hath no music in
himself, is fit for treason, stratcgems and
spoils," it might bo said of Christians in
particular, that whoever has no music in his
soul is not not fit for heaven." Ho sustained
his theory by the w orks of naturo and tho
word of God.
In a hasty research for biblical points on
this subject," I find these commands: "Praise
God with tho sound of the trumpet, with
psaltery and harp." "Praiso him with
stringea instruments and organs."
"Admonish one another with psalms and
hymns and spiritual songs." ot only aro
wo commanded by the word of God to wor
ship him through this medium, but by our
own natures. 1 am reminded ot an occa
sion when I first heard Philip Phillips sing:
"Flee as a bird to the mountain,
Thou who art weary of rin."
It was to me, at tho time, an appeal moro
impressive than any I had ever heard before.
It combined tho force of sentiment and song
and touched the heart, where it otherwise
might lme failed.
VVo have all seen, if not felt the spirit
ual elfect of mmic and should, therefore,
thoroughly appreciate its aluoand encour
age its growth in our churches.
An excellent course is being pursued by
some churches tor tho advancement of con
gregational singing, by placing the Sunday
school under the care of the organist and
instructing in the ihurch hmns instead of
the lighter cla, and in many inxtime-,
worthless (musically -pntMng) ela-s of bun
diy school iiiiHtc. 0 r future congrcgition
comes from tho bunua sdiool, and much
can be acciiinph-hcd tut tho future good ol
( huroh singing by drilling Sabbath school
-diol ir with a Mew to this fact.
At our M. 11 Church we find .Miss Caliin,
a cignmst, and among Ihe pi f net pal oiccs
arc Mrs. Harding :m 1 Mr. Iiibuden, so
prano; Mrs. Abbott, lontralto; Mr. Pollock,
tenor; Mr. Inboden, bus. Tho musical
erx ice include two anthems by the choir
and hymns by tho congregation. It is not
j et determined whether a pipe organ will
grace th new church or not. An improve
ment on the prc-ent one w ill be secured at
The Baptist church claims Mrs. Furlong as
orginist. Misses Oberist and Lawrence, so
prano, Mr. Stem, contralto, Mr. Strfleo,
tenor, and Mr. HolTmaster, bn?-.
Their musical sen ice consols of one an
them by tnn cuoir anu congregational sing
ing, l'rof. Sickncr is organist at the Presby
terian church, and with tho singing material
in that society we are led to conjecture why
there is not an organized choir.
Tho Catholic choir has been much im
proved by tho Introduction of Mr. Arnold
and his sister. 1'cter'n mass in I) was gieu
complete last Sabbath. Weber's and Far
mer's mase- aro now in rehearsal. Miss
Mnnassa is second soprano, Mr. Higgins
bass, Mr. Movers tenor, Miss Mcisinger con
tralto. The Christian church has congregational
singing with Miss Brooks ns organist. The
German Methodist the same with Mis
W'icham as organist.
When tho Episcopal society will havo per
fected their church arrangements, they pro
pose tohuon well organized choir and
render the beautiful mimical service of that
church in tho most approved ttvle.
llov. Woodrow, the pastor of the Univer-
salist cliurcu was on tne outlook a lew davs
since for an organist. They will havo con
gregational tinging only for time being.
At tiik lthCEi'TiON Music and recita
tions formed a prominent feature of the suc
cessful party given at the residence of Mr.
Lew, one week ago, (andifitwero not for
mv letter head, I might givo vent to my in
clination to say something about salads,
oysters, cake, confections, fruits etc., which
appealed quite as forcibly to our more prac
tical appetites; but I must bow to my re
strictions. The music was as interesting as
it was varied, leading oil with a selection
from Gottscholk which was brilliantly exe
cuted by Mr. Arnold, of Stcinway hall. His
sister favored us during the evening with
two v ocal selection", "Deep in my heart"
and the famous romanza lrom the opera of
"Mignon." Miss Oberist in her usual good
stylo sang the bewitching air of "The Daisj"
by Arditi, which was followed by the quaint
little ballad "Jcanette." Ono "of Emmets
popular songs was rendered later on by Miss
Oberist and Mr. HolFuiastcr.
Then came the waltzes all kinds and keys
delie-ious, dreamy, brilliant. We could'nt
sit and listen, so wo took the floor and en
joyed a two-fold delight. Miss Jackson
touched upon some liuman weaknesses in
the course of her recitations and man's vani
ty and woman's love for seal skin sacqucs
wero portraved to life. 31is Jackson has
an agreeable personality, und reads her lines
with vigor and intelligence.
THE ST. JOHN VOTE.

years in the penitentiary instead of four of

concratulate themselves on the result of their
