The Cold Suns of Kansas.
A sugar broker from Louisiana was
in this city this week canvassing for bus
iness. He made a tour of the groceries
and became disgusted. He called at this
office and said that Kansas was being
fooled on the sugar question; that Kan
sas sugar at its best was only uhalf sweet"
that a "strong sweet could not be raised
under a cold sun."' Incidentally he let
drop the remark that he had found that
the Topeka grocers were all carrying the
Kansas sugar in stock and seemed sweet
on it, as it were. We do not think that
the Louisiana sugar broker ever visited
Kansas in July or he would be a trifle
backward in thrusting forward bis obser
vations concerning a stroag sweet under
a cold sun. Goodbye, Mr. Louisiana,
keep a sharp lookout or a Kansas drum
mer down in your country next year with
samples of the best sugar on earth,
grown under the cold suns of Kansas.
BY THE WAT.
Speaking with a friend the other day
concerning the coming of Gilmore and
his great band, the question was very
naturally asked me, "what will be the
price of admission to the Gilmore con
cert?" I am not prepared to say was
my reply, but think the price of tickets
will be one dollar. Of course there are
people in Dodge as there are in every
place who will think this price out
rageous, but let me tell you, as one who
has many times heard this wonderful
baud, that if you pay your money and go
to hear them you will never regret your
action, provided you arc anything at all
of a competent judge of music. These
complaints about prices brings
mind the old story told on an
farmer, which is an illustration
Having gone to New York City on
business one day. he was strolling along
Broadway, and passing a fancy restau
rant about the hour of noon, stopped and
"This be a grand eating place; I left
home before sun-up this morning and
feel sorter tired and hungry; I guess I'll
just go in here and eat."
In he went and ordered a square meal
at once. Now a square meal at "Del
monico's" or any other metropolitan
restaurant implies much, but the waiter
taking the old man at his word, started
for the kitchen. After spending some
thirty or forty minutes at the meal, the
farmer wiped his hands on the napkin
and drank the finger bowl empty, step
ping up to the cashier's desk he asks,
"how much is my bill."
Counting over the checks left him by
the waiter, he looks up and says, "32.25
"Geewhillikins," remarked the farmer,
"but that's a little steep, aint it? Well,
let me see, I had turtle soup and N. Y.
counts, fish, chicken, turkey with cran
berry sauce, beef a la mode, lemon ice,
celery, vegetables till you couldn't rest,
pie, cake, ice cream, a bottle of cham
pagne to top off with, gee whiz, boss,
but that touches the spot, and I don't
know what all I did have; I'm so full I
can't breathe. 2.25 did you say?"
"Well, it comes pretty high, but it's
worth twice the money, after all. Kin
you change five dol'.ars?"
Friday evening last I had the pleasure
of seeing the charming actress, Miss
Charlotte Thompson, in her thrilling
play of "Jane Eyre." This was some
what a surprise to most of the audience,
for they went there expecting to hear
her in "Hearts Astray." Her support
was very good, and "Jane Eyre" seemed
to give general satisfaction. "Jacob,"
the butler, was present in all his glory,
and took immensely.
But I am again called upon to say that
the same boisterous element were also
there; and to say that they were more
orderly than usual would be doing them
a great injustice. Would that they could
take to heart the good advice given by
the "Rev. Brockelhurst, of Lowood."
Too bad, too bad, that we should be
compelled to speak thus.
"Straws show which way the wind
blows," so, also, do bets show which
way an election will go. The other day
I noticed two men arranging bets on the
election and they were prominent dem
ocratsone betting on the republican'
and the other on the democratic result,
and after the bets were closed there was
no doubt left in my mind but that the p.
d. thought the republicans had much the
best show in the fight.
I thought that such a thing as a man
being "held up" was a thing of the for
gotten past, but only a few nights ago
such a thing did happen in the city. The
man who was thus relieved of his hard
earnings imbibes too freely; he was un
der the influence of the ardent on the
night in question, and was known by
several persons to have had in the neigh
borhood of one hundred dollars on his
person. -He knew not how or when he
landed in the lodgings he occupied that
night, but he does know that when he
awoke he was much poorer in purse.
Do our policemen know anything about
this matter? Here is an opportunity to
prove yourselves "one of the finest."
Mr. Charles Ball and Mrs. Rena Gil
bert were united in the holy bonds of
matrimony a few days since.

Mrs. Sheldon is spending a few days

The following petition is being circulat
ed through the entire southwest part of
Kansas and eastern Colorado, for the
signatures of citizens who are interested
in the subject matter thereof. Similar
petitions are also being circulated in the
north and northwest states and territo
ries. Read carefully and put your sig
nature to the petition when it comes
around your way :
To our Fellow Citizens who Represent us In
the Congress of the United States:
We, .your petitioners, would respect
First. That we are vitally interested
is- tue success of agriculture in south
western Kansas and southeastern Colo
rado, because, in good faith we have
settled here upon lands which were of
fered to us by the government of the
United State3 as suitable for settloment;
and we, our friends and neighbors, our
means of getting a livelihood and the
meanB of educating and providing for
the children of our families are abso
lutely dependent upon achieving success.
Second. That, after bearing more
than the usual hardships, discourage
ments and disappointments incident to
frontier life, we find ourselves achieved,
but with unconquered difficulties thick
before us, our energies and resources
drained by repeated disastrous failures
of crops, and without means or encour-
Lagemcnt to continue the unequal strug-
gle,""uqles8 we may depend upon speedy
Third. That it is proven that at least
partial .irrigation is essential to success
ful agrjcoluture throughout our bounds,
and this, we are conviuced can not be ob
tained in time to save our property aud
interests unless the government will ex
tend its powerful aid. We are satisfied
that an abundance of water can be se
cured by using the surplus surface water
and the available subterranean resources
of the river valleys, and that such sup
ply may be obtained with certainty,
speedily and cheaply; yet the work is of
such a nature aud of such magnitude,
that to wait for the slow and uncertain
process of development by private means
will lose us the results of our labors the
advantages that may be derived from ir
rigation ; because we are not able to hold
on much longer under the uncertainties
and discouragements attending farming
Fourth. That the government hav
ing opened to us these lands for settle
ment on precisely the same terms and
conditions as the lands in more favored
localities, giving us only the same acre
age, charging and accepting the same
price per acre and requiring the same
residence and improvement, is under
moral and equitable obligations to at
least put us in the way to an equality of
advantages, since it can do so at reason
able expense. As we have in good faith
accepted the proffered lands and paid
our money and expended our time and
our labor upon them, we believe it to be
incumbent upon the government to make
good the implied warranty that the lands
were worth the effort and expense.
Fifth. That the territory embraced
within the limits described by this peti
tion, yield to the government in past and
certain future payments more than
twelve million dollars in cash.'
Sixth. That we believe that but a
part of the money thus paid by us into
the treasury of the United States, if de
voted at once to our benefit, and proper
ly expended, will not only make our
lands habitable aud productive, but will
be the means of adding to the wealth of
the nation many, many millions of dol
lars above such cost.
Seventh. That the government has
already expended for public improve
ments east of the Mississippi river at
least five times as much money per cap
ita as west of that line, and as we have
neither rivers nor harbors to deepen nor
improve, nor coast defenses to provide
for, but may, on the other hand, become
a garden and granary of the nation, the
demand for public expenditure must re
main comparatively slight.
Hence, as our necessities are great and
pressing, and action by the government,
to be of benefit to us, must be immedi
ate, and, as it is asking but a small part
of the money contributed by ourselves,
we would, therefore, most respectfully
and urgently pray that you will grant us
from the treasury of the United States a
sufficient appropriation to carry forward
to practical success the development of
that water supply which is of such impor
tance to us,and which will be so profitable
to the nation.
Farm Better, 'ot More.
The mistake most farmers make is in
trying to cultivate too much land. If
they would but realize that there is
scarcely a limit to the productive capac
ity of an acre of land, they would not
attempt to cultivate so much, but would
do the same amount of work on half the
number of acres and realize better re
sults. When farmers learn the results
of the "little farm well tilled" idea, the
mortgages will rapidly disappear from
the Kansas farms. One cannot success
fully raise mortgages and sunflowers on
the same land at the same time.
Wichita Eagle: A larse and; distin
guished audience assembled at th
Crawford Grand last night and applaud-
ea with profound discretion what was on
the whole a worthy performance. Mr.
Beer's revival of Enoch Arden is ascenic
splendor. Hoyt's master brush can be
seen in the perspective. In the fore.
ground Beers can be recognized in the
management of detail, conceived artis
tically as well as expressively of Eng
land's Poet Laureate's best idyallic
poem. It was such a production that
awed the usual patrons of the Crawford
to silent admiration.
The cliffs of old England's seashore
were wonderfully reproduced on can
As an illustration of the progress of
the story Mr. Beers must be welcomed
and encouraged. As far as colors and
ensemblagegoit is the most complete
and interesting production ever seen oi
The wreck of the "Good Fortune" was
the best stage effect ever presented in
Wichita. It realized almost perfectly
the idea of the gloom and terror of a to
tal disaster. Mr. Beers is a sincere and
robust Enoch Arden. He has given the
production most generous and wealthy
surroundings. As far as correctness of
scene, expense and implied gorgeous
ness of the scenic artists talent, it com
pares favorably with the most preten
tious production scene on any stage. The
company is oue of the most satisfactory
seen in the Grand. The specialties were
received with much hilarity.
GIL.nOBES CHEAT BAND.
THIS FAMOUS MUSICAL ORGANIZATION
SOON TO HE HEARD IN DODGE CITY.
The great Gilmore's Baud, of New
York, will be heard at McUarty's opera
house, Monday, November 25th. This
world-famous musical organization is
said to be the finest of its kind in exist
ence, and its great head, 3Ir. P. S. Gil
more, is the most popular and enterpris
ing of all leaders, and has accomplished
the most wonderful things in music on a
gigantic scale. He was the originator of
and executor of the memorable Boston
Jubilees, the most stupendous musical
affairs recorded in history, with a chorus
of thirty thousand voices and an orches
tra of twenty-five hundred musicians,
with the addition of many novel and
iensational features which astonished
There is nothing passe about Gilmore;
he is riding on the very crest of the wave
of popularity now, and his band is the
pet musical organization of New York
and many other parts of the country.
His jubilees mven in New York during
the past summer were the largest attend
ed and most enthusiastically received mu
sical affairs heard there for years. No
building could hold the crowds, and
thousands were turned away from the
three concerts every day for eight days.
They were a part of the series of jubi
lees the great leader is giving through
out the United States in celebration of
the twentieth anniversary year of the
Boston jubilee, and the one here will
be the same. Gilmore will bring his an
vils, electric-firiug artillery, special art
ists, etc., and will have the assistance of
the following celebrated and world-re-nouned
vocal artists: Mme. Blanche
Stone-Barton, the most pleasing and cul
tured American soprano, and Miss Jen
nie Dickerson, the famous American con
tralto of remarkable European success.

ATTICA SUGAR WORKS.
Great Results Binsr Achieved ami the
The Attica sugar works, notwithstand
ing the many breaks in weak parts-of the
machinery,. the unavoidable mistake in
not securing a sufficient aud constant
supply of water, caused, not from a lack
of water, but from the mode ol getting
at it and faulty pumps, the unripe con
dition of much of the cane used, caused
by the backward season, the delays ne
cessitated in adjusting the machinery,
and other delays which follow in the wake
of a business yet in its infancy, show
better and more satisfactory results than
have yet beeu obtained in the state.
Thfe is the more gratifying, because the
machinery in the Attica mill, in major
part, is of new and heretofore untried
models. It Is expressing a well settled
conviction on the part of the company
when we say that the improved methods
in use in their mill here are much richer
in results than were really anticipated,
hence the satisfaction expressed by the
Cane raised upon the soil here shows a
richness in saccharine matter not met
with at any other mill in the state, it
shows as high as fifteen per cent,
sucrose in some, the average at pres
ent being fourteen. Calculating upon
the latter per cent., a ton of field corn
contains 22 pouuds of sugar, yet the
company, from the fiist run, only secure
100 pounds, or a little more, of sugar and
from tbirteeu to lifteeu gallons of syrup.
As the sale of syrup is not remunerative,
and contains a large per ceut. of sugar,
it will be tored, and after the crop of
cane is disposed of, the syrup will be le
boiled, from which will be obtained
thhty pouuds of sugar fiom each twenty
gallons. Add this to the first niu and it
foots up 130 pounds of sugar as the
product of one ton of field cane, still
leaving a remainder of syrup.
The company yet hope, and beliee.
through the adoption of wise experi
ments aud new processes, to largely in
crease the output of sugar per tou of
cane. However, should this fail, and no
increase be obtained, then the sugar in
dustry remains a grand success in its
present status and a paying investment
Up to the present time the Attica mill
has manufactured a little over 1.10.000
pouuds of sugar, which shows a very
flattering output, when it is stated that
oyer sixty cells of juice soured and were
a total loss, besides about one hundred
tous of uncut cane on the ways were also
lost. Add to this the frequent stoppages
of the mill from various causes, and the
Attica plant shows it to be a most suc
cessful one and the company wise in its
planning. It is not reasonable to think
that the second season's run will be a
more successful run than has been this
Since Monday noon last the mill has
cut at the rate of 200 tons of cane per
day, Wednesday night being the largest
run, filling 01 cells with chips, requiring
122 tons of field cane to fill them.
Wednesday a strike of 13,000 pouuds
of sugar was made and another yester
day of a like size.
The company in making contracts for
cane, estimated the yield per acre at not
more than twelve tons per acre, and the
early variety planted here at uot more
than ten, whereas it has run from thir
teen to eighteen in all varieties. This
surprised the company and forces extra
effort to use the crop.
The first runs of sugar were not up to
what was wanted, but all subsequent
runs have proved to be the very best yet
manufactured from sorghum, testing 9S.
One hundred barrels of sugar were
shipped last Tuesday, aggregating near
ly 35,000 pounds. There are fifty more
barrels ready for shipment and thirty on
the reel room floor, and more awaiting
Thursday night there was 6,500 pounds
of sugar run through the centrificals in
twelve hours. The sugar i3 of a splendid
grain and very light ia color.
American Beef Abroad.
The outside butchers away from Lon
don and Liverpool want to get the bene
fits of the live cattle from this country.
The prejudice against American beef
cattle Is all gone, and the superior clas-.
of high-grade beef cattle we export are
eagerly sought after at better prices than
last year. The ships are all engaged for
weeks ahead and crowded to their
utmost capacity. Successful shipments
have also been made to Germany, and
the whole world will be our market for
all the good beef cattle we can raise, but
the scrubs are not wanted in any country.
They will not pay to ship, and unless our
farmers quit raising scrubs and raise
only high grades the foreign countries
will take the best and leave us the scrub
to eat at home.
A Santa Fe circular hasbeen issued di
recting that the custom in vogue among
employees, of making presents to supe
riors be stopped. That will make a big
difference with the watch trade in Kansas.
