effect to draw an unusually large congrega
tion to the evening services. The address
it was more in the nature uf an address than
a sermon was fully up to tho expectations
of his hearers; eloquent, logical, profound.
Rev. Harper docs not betray a belief in a
graveyard sort of Christianity, but that
religion wss intended to inspire the world
with a spirit of progression in things tem
poral as things spiritual And, withal, he
is a thorough scholar and deep thinker.
His Sunday night service was highly appre

The Christian church at tho corner of t
Lawrence avenue and Lincoln street was
dedicated with appropriate ceremonies last
Sunday by Rev. F. M. Bains, of Topoka.
Quite a large audience was present, every

has the appearance of having been mado
and arranged by an educated hand. The
pulpit was tastefully decorated with natural

The choir then sang tho hymn "To the
work, to tho work," &c., and when tho
music died away Rev. Hendryx stepped to
tbo book and read the first scrip
turer lesson from tho sixteenth chapter of
Mathew, which was followed by prayer by
Her. Rains. Hymn 28, -I love thy kingdom
Lord," dec, was then announced, and after
the singing of which Bev. Rains stepped to
the front and read sixth verses, beginning
with the six verse of the first chapter of
Paul's letter to tho Gallatians.
TBe sermon was a good one and well suit
ed to the occasion. The speaker has a forci
ble style, and on taking up a point never
leaves it until all his hearers gain its full force
Ho had well prepared his sermon, and deliv
ered it without the use of notes. A synopsis
embracing the leading points only will be
In referring to the verses read tho speaker
said the term scripture was used in its larg
est sense. He would contrast it with ovcry
religion. It would bo observed that tho
apostle was very jealous of his opponents.
He could not be moro emphatic or positive.
Tho teachings of the Jews wero so different
from his teachings that tncro
could scarcely be said to bo
any similarity. The gospel then is
tho gospel now. Wherever tho gospel is
preached men are better. Somo object to
it, it is true, but men object to everything.
They assume the liberty to compare it with
all tho false religions.
If the gospel does not meet every want of
man then it is ot divine. If it does it is
divine. It was as great a miracle to create
life for the cyo as to mako the eye.
Thero can be no better exercise than to
examine ourselves. Wo are much inclined
to examine others. Thero can be no better
exercise than to study ourselves, and if we
would do it more we would bavo ls time
to examino others.
Every man in his normal condition will
bolieve something. Every man ..ants some
thing upon which ho can fix his faith. Had
tho gospel met this longing cf tho human
Tho mainspring of christian conduct is
faith, little believing but faith. In ono
sense wo do not know there is a God or
heaven, and it is well. Wo know by faith
Is faith a mysticism or hard to believe?
How largo must my faith bt! How many
theories must I accept none. Tho apostle
never announced a theory or a doctrine.
One single proposition I must believe,
must believe that Jesus is tho Christ. Upon
this hangs our hopes of immortality. I care
not about your theories, but is Jeus tho
Christ, the Son of tho Hying God? This is
tho proposition I am to believe. This is the
eolden beam that Dermeatis both the Old
and tho Now Scriptures.
Every man in his normal condition wants
to be busy. Occasionally a man don't wnt
anything to do. Soma in the church are of
Outclass. I think Wichita hat tome of them
Occasionally we hear it said that society is
going to pieces. I beliove that pooplo aro
bettor hero than in tho cast because every
man hero has something to do to keep from
starving. In tho cast thoy hayo time
to be idle, and henco the causo of more
wickedness there than here. Let tho dys
peptic preacher cry out against society, but
we have no reason to bo alarmed.
Work is tho watchword of Christian life.
I never saw a growler in tho church who
was a worker. No busy member has time
Some bavo tho idea that tho church is
kind of perpetual 'motion, and will land
them in heaven.
Evorv man wants to love BOine ono or
something. Ho must have an object upon
v-hich to rest his affections. Has that foel-
ine boon provided for? God gives us an ob
ject worthy our regard. Wo want to be
loved we are loved. Wo want something
better. Wo build everything on hope.
Tho hope of something bettor tomorrow
helps us today. Wo hope for eternal rest.
This universal longing of tho human heart
is provided for in tho gospel.
I want to test your faith this
morning in tho gospel. You
rnm.ilain that hvnocrites are in - the
chufh. Docs that prove anything? No.
In complaining you compare yourself with
the worst. Don't do that. Compare your
self with the best. In doing this grumblers
will soo that they don't compare favorably.
We talk of tho great state of Kansas. We
forget that Christianity has built this coun
try. We h-ve built this chapel hero. It
(should bo r id for. Why? Because you
are getting rich. Do you know of a poor
man in Wichita? Of all co-temptiblo men
in this world it is he who always receives
but nter gives.

Last Sunday evening -was the twenty-
fifth anniversary of the marriage of Mr. and

their kind hospitality.

Mr. and Mrs. Myers were the recipients of
quite a handsome list of presents, as can bo
seen from tho 'following: Mr. and Mrs,
Charles Hatton, a silver fruit dish: Mr. and
Mrs. W. a Little, a silver butter dish; Mr.

Near 9 o'clock the party was invited to

A THRILLING CHASE.
Perhaps tho most exciting runaway that

occurred about 6 o'clock yesterday after

thing went on smoothly for a timo until
somo of tbo boys were feeling both patriotic
and important because of somo internal

STATE NATIONAL DANK.
The State Bank of Kansas opens up this
morning as tho slato National uanc oi
Wichita, without chango of officers or di

it was founded has been uniform and of

conservative, there has been no time when

MOw the National Holiday was Spent at the)
Metropolis of the Garden State.
Catching the inspiration of the return of
tho national birthday the innumerable em
bryonic patriots of the city were up beuassa
yesterday morning, and almost before tie
bright twinkle ofthe start was absorbed a
the brilliant sunrays they were out and
making the fresh morning air retonent with
alternate bursts of merry laughter and the
sharp pop ofthe fire cracker.
Although but little had been said in the
prints about the Fourth and its observances
in a public way, everybody seemed to be on
the qui vive, and as the morning grew into
midday multitude of people were wending
their way to the different places selected for
the day's festivities.
The chief point of attraction was the Riv
erside park, the place chosen by the Sent of
Veterans, where with their friends they
would celebrate the day. They had pre
pared a program for the occasion which
called for a public display in the city. Ac
cordingly at 9:30 o'clock a procession was
formed on Water street in front of Memo
rial hall headed by NsfTs bank; then a char
iot containing fourteen misses representing
the Goddess of Liberty and the
thirteen original states: next the
Sons of Veterans, In lino, under "com
mand of First LieuL . L. Ingalls,
led by their drum corps; next the Po-peep
company, in charge of Mrs. Clum, repre
senting the continental congress; then by
the Mulvane flag corps in bunting-draped
yehiclqej then representatives of the G. A.
R. loaal post, followed by a long train of
vehicles filled with citizens of the town and
country who came in to participate.
After parading tho principal streets the
procession moved out to the park. Reach
ing the park tbo exercises were opened with
an overture by Jeff's band. Rev. Hamon
then pronounced tho opening invocation.
and after music, Mr. J. D. Caldwell read
the declaration of independence, prefacing
the reading with a short re
sume ot tho circumstances wmen ware
incident to its origin; tho sufferings, priva
tions and indignities endured by the com
patriots of that day prior and subsequent to
After another musical interlude Col.
Milton Stewart, tho chosen orator of the
day, delivered an address, which for elo
quence, fervor and impassioned patriotic
sentiment did honor to his genius and no
bility ef soul no les than to the occasion
and those for whom it was specially pro
pared. (Tho full text of Col. Stewart's ad
dress appears on tho second page of this is
sue af tbo Eaole.)
After the address recess was taken until
1 o'clock. At that hour the order of exer
cosos was taken up.
Tho program of tho afternoon abounded
in a variety ot amusements, such as foot,
wheelbarrow and potato racing on tho
grounds, a scull race on tho river, theatrical
performances, etc , and a very entertaining
drill exercise by tho Mulvane flag corps,
under command of Capt. John Logan. This
feature was highly enjoyed by tho great
crowd of peoplo present, and was crcditablo
to tho winsomo misscn composing tho corps
and tho skill ot their tutor and commander.
After tho program was completed the
young folks betook themselves croqueting,
boat riding, rambling about tho park and
such other passtimes as they chose, and as
the day drew to a close gradually melted
away into the city and to their homes.
At night tho Sons of Veterans, under
whoso auspices the day's transpiring as
enumerated, gave a pyrotechnic display
from tho G. A. R. building, and afterwards
a ball in Memorial as a grand finale.
The arrangements for the occasion were
well planned and as well carried out, thanks
to tho inspirations of tbo generous Sons of
Veteran, not ajar or hitch, or the slightest
disturbance occurring at any timo during
Tho names of the misses representing tho
thirteen states, Uo-pecp company, and Flag
corpi, are unavoidably crowded out of this
report. Wo regret tho disappointment this
will causo tho dears, but it is unavoidable.
Every part of tho opera house was crowd
ed last evening to witness the production of
"Fanchon." Tho weather being v cry warm,
tho house crowded and tho celebrations of
tbo Fourth still in the minds of the audi-
encotnoro was some superfluous applause
and noiso during tho intermission, but
while the performance was taking place
there was tho best of order and respect to
the actors. Tho character of "Fanehon"
sparkled and sbined in the skillful handling
of Mrs. Maud Melville. Her leading sup
port, Mr. John D. O'Harra, is a promising
young actor. Tho other characters were
all well sustained, and it may be truthfully
said that the company is superior to many
higher priced affairs. Tho manager, Mr.
Miller, is a gentleman of refinement and
education, and ono of the most successful
theatrical manacers in Ameiica, and his
name is of itself, a guarantee of tho excel
lence of his company. Tomorrow night
will be given tho "Galley Slave," the la
mented Bartlcy Compbcll's master piece.

One week ago today a tingle and married
gentleman were tiH"; on general topics
They were intusate friend aad assumed the
utmost liberty In all matters pertaining to
each other. . On this occasion the former
gentleman in a quiet way imparted informa
tion to his friend that intimated that his
wife wat not true to him. This for a time
was vehemently opposed, and even treated
with scorn by the intuited husband. He
could scarcely allow himself to hear the
word that brought trouble to hit fireside
without resenting it in a violent manner.
Finally from forces brought to bear by
the gentleman who had ventured the
delicate information, he entertained the
statement, but not without believing that
his friend was mistaken.
The following day suspicions arose in
his mind and doubl began to gather,
which led him to Investigate the matter.
The name of the party who it was alleged
was succeeding in gaining nit wife t affec
tions wu furnished him. This gentleman
occupies an office on East Douglas avenue.
He determined to utilize tho information. Ue
wrote a note to his wifo and signed
the name of the one charged with the crime.
The note contained a request for the lady to
come to "his office" at 12 o'clock last Fri
day night. It was sent by a messenger .boy
who returned bringing an answer of accept
ance. He had some hours before, however,
told hit wife that be wu going east Satur
The answer wat etpecially "spooncv in
its nature, calling the supposed writer "dar
ling dear," "lovely creature," and many
other "names" calculated to put the most
valiant to flight-
Receiving this letter, it wu no
longer a suspicion. Doubt were supplanted
by certainties. His effort then should be to
The time arrived for htm to start on his
eastern trip. He packed bis grip and kissed
bis wife a kind good-bye at the door. He
failed to take the train, but repaired to the
gentleman's room who had first imparted
the information, and there remained con
cealed ,the remainder of the day and until
after 11 o'clock that night. A short time
before the appointed hour he placed himself
at the foot of the stairs leading to the office
aforementioned. A few minute before
the timo his wifo appeared and started up
the stairs. At this moment he made his
presence known, muoh to the discomfiture
of hit wife. She seeing that she wu caught,
burst into tears, imploring her husband to
forgivo her. He replied to her entreaties in
a way that suggested be proposed to insti
tute proceedings for a divorce.
The conversation luted somo minutes,
when a passing party wu attracted by their
conversation. They, seeing him, started
home, and for the timo being discontinued
It is suspected, however, that he means
what he said, hut this remains for tho future
