There is a little hitch In Mr. Clement's

A HAPPY OCCASION.
June 28tb, being tho 27th birthday of J.
E. Coulter, a few of his friends thought to
celebrate tho occasion by giving him a sur
prise, which they proceeded to do by gather
ing at his residence, 240 West Topeka Ave
nue, at about 9 o'clock in tho evening. Af
ter a few moments spent in social chat, Mr.
Hatfield, tho speaker of tho occasion, invited
Mr. Coulter to occupy the seat oi honor,
and in a neat speech presented him with
some of the essentials of life. That we will
not name here. Als a fino plush covered
rocking chair, in which to rest himself in
his declining years. Mrs. Coulter, tho wife

After spending a very pleasant evening
tho guests all wished tho host and hostess
many hanDV occasions of this kind and de
parted. Mr. Coulter and wife will cherish
tho remembrance of this occasion in tho
years to come, not so much for tho presents
as for tho friendship. Ioyo and esteem of
kind iriends and neighbors.
Tho Eaole sometime ago noticed a propo
sition to build a Congregational church in
the south part of town. A meeting in that
interest was held last night, when tho plans
were submitted and a committee appointed
to rai'0 means for that purpose. The church
is to bo located on South Topeka avenue,
ono half a block south of the Wichita &
Western, and the cost is nut to exceed S5,000.
Mr. W. L. McBee showed tho reporter
the plans last evening, and if the church is
built alter these, it will certainly bo a very
neat edifice, with a seating capacity of
N. A. English, W. L. McBeo and Thos.

A meeting of North Side property owners
was held last night at tho offico of H. G.
Toltr to consider a proposition for tho build
ing and operating of a now street car lino
up Fourth avenue to Carey avenuo and then
down Washington to Douglas avenue.
There were quite a number present and a
great deal of interest was manifested in tho
matter. Owing to tbo inability of several
prominent parties to be present tho meeting
adjourned to meet at tho samo place on
next Friday evening at 8 o'clock, when
definite action and measures will be taken
to socuro the line.

JUVFED FROM THE TRAIN
A telephone message was received at this
offico at 9 o'clock last evening to the effect
that J. P. Moulds, who has been a clerk at
Bitting Bros, store and who had been east
somewhere and was returning, jumped
from the train about three miles east of
Newton and was killed. No farther partic
ulars was received. Bitting Bros, store was
closed when the message was received and
the reporter could find no ono who knew
the man bv name.
ANOTHER BIO HOTEL.
Mr. Demming was offered $35,000 for tho
property on which the Tremont is situttcd,
and to move tho house off it, but ho refused

The society re-convened at 2 o'clock. A
general discussion of strawberries was en
gaged in and tbo teaching of the discus
sion was tho thorough preparation of
tho land in the fall by deep
plowing, thorough pulverization and. plant
ing in tho springtime. The system of plant
ing was in rows 31 figt wide and one foot in
a row. Mulching was recommended during
the winter months and careful cultivation
during tho summer.
The practice by many of poor picking and
handling strawberries for the market was
condemed because of its tendency to create
Tbo samo preparation was recommended
for raspberry - plantations. They
should bo planted in rows,
six feet apart and three feet in a row. Thor
ough cultivation was recommended in tho
early part of each year. Tho cano growths
should, tbo first year, bo pinched in when
they attain the length of eight or twelve
inches. The second year the canes should
bo pinched back at a length of three feet.
The varieties of strawberries that seemed
to be preferablo for early season were the
Doolittlo and Soutbcgan; for medium sea
son, Smiths, Hopkins, Taylor; for lasts,
McCormick and Gregg.
Tbo net profits for one aero of raspberries
was estimated at $150 to $200. Of tho red
varieties tho Brand-wine, Cuthvcrt and
Shaffer's Colossal were preferred.
Tne evening session commenced at 8
o'clock. An address of welcome was de
livered by Mr. U. R. Hatfield, and in a very
appropriate manner tho society was wel
comed to tha hospitality ana kind homes of
the citizens of Wichita. Ho spoke in
very high terms of the work of
tho society in fostering interests which was
so much needed on our western plains. The
welcome wus re ponded to by Dr. W. Wil
liamson, of Washington, who performed hit
duly in a vury crediutblo mmnc-r.
An essay was then retd by Mr. A. Willis,
ofOttowa, on the subject, "Importance of
hoiticultu'e a an industry." His paper
contained both practical and theoretical in
struction. The discusiijn of tbo blackberry was then
taken up. It was tho general opinion that
tho KJttatinny Snyder and Taylor
varieties havo been the most successfully
cultivated. They should receive thorough
and constant culture during the fore part of
the season. The growing canes should be
pinched back to two or throe feet the first
year for tbo encouragement of tho growth of
tbo branches or laltcrals, and should be
mulched during winter months for consecu
tive ycais. Several growers had realized as
high as $800 per acre. In this
count tho Kittntiuny seetne 1 to grow host.

Last Sunday the body of a stranger 1was

west of Butler county. It was lying on the
track horribly mangled, both legs cut off
and head terribly crushed.
He was about five feet and seven inches
high, weighed one hundred and forty.
pounds and was between 25 and 30 years
old. He had sandy hair and wore a light
mustache. Ho wore a dark jeans pants, blue
shirt, sear sucker coat, vest and straw
hat. His clothes were in good order
and his appearance suggested that he was a
man of good family. Only two cents, how
ever, were found on his person. When the
body was found coroner J. W. Wingard
was notified and responded as soon as pos
sible. He examined everything in connec
tion with the case as closely as possible but
could gain no knowledgo of him, as no pa
pers could be found of any sort. It is sup
posed that he was killed by the esst bound
passenger train about 9 o'clock at night.

however, until sho heard of a body being

She also states that the conductor
appeared nervous and excited after that. It
is not the custom for the train to stop at
Andover unless thcro is some ono to get off
or get on. As there was no one to get on
ho let the train go past tho station before he
recalled the fact that tho lady was to stop at
that station. When ho thought of it he

THIS ILLUSTRATED REVIEW
Tho proposed work of tho Enterprise
Publishing Company, which is being gotten
up in the interest of Wichita, will provo
very valuable to our interests as a city and
as a people. It differs so widely from all
ordinary advertising schemes and catch
penny jobs and is altogether Fn such an
attractive form, that it will not only catch
the attention but hold tho interest of every
one into whoso hands it may happen to fall.
Of courso no ordinary sized town could war
rant so great a work and expenditure of
money because nothing is charged for tho
matter or fur lh illustrations. Cities of
twenty-fivo thousand aro few in which it
will pay to publish such n review. Kansas
City and Memphis secured tho advantage,
and they wero tho only two towrs in this
section of tho west. Tbo business houses
and interests of Topeka and the other larger
towns in tho state wero enumerated, but
found insufficient in number and magnitude,
and tho company did not oven under the
circumstances propose tho scheme. But
there is only ono Wichita.

Kansas City Journal: Brambilla is ac
companied on her concert tour by Miss E.
F. Backus, pianoist, and Mr. John Behr,

launch out on a trial effort; they go laden
with experience and power that is the gar-
nared rrtull of natural talent, persistent ap
plication and thorough training under the
supervision of tho ablest teachers and most
merciless musical critics of the age. When
Miss Backus was under the tutorship of the
celebrated Scbarvenka the appeared in
chamber concert before members of the
royal family and others in Dublin, and was
received with enthusiasm.
New comers and those who have been in
the city only a short time, are loud in their
complaints about there being no way of tell
ing the name of a street when one comes to
it, and they havo good reason for complaint
It requires more asking to find out anr
where than is at all pleasant, and probably

as this. The Junction addition has guide
boards at the corner of each street although
