monks, "the ballet girl" and "Johannas

attracted much attention. Gretchen's
make-up, we must admit, was 6lightly
"loud," viewing it from the cultured
Kansas standpoint, and there was enough
of the masculine apparel visible to show
that she was the man of the household.
The "ballet girl" was another good

Ksigkts or Pythias Masieale.
During a long residence in this city, it
has been our good fortune to attend many
musical entertainments and we can trulv
say that the one given by the Knights of
Pythias last evening, fairlv surpasses
anything of the kind tbaLjvas ever before 1
attempted in this place. We think all
those who were present will agree with
us and not consider that we are trying
by this emphatic endorsement to cast re
flections upon the excellent musicales
that have preceded this one. Compari
sons of this sort would be unfair, for un
til now we have never had with us a lady
whose voice can approach that of Mrs.
Kirkland, even the famous contralto
lately introduced to a Dodge City audi
ence by Gilmore must take a second
Possibly those who were unfortunate
in not being able to attend, will say that
we are either prejudiced in favor of our
lady visitor or else they may doubt our
musical taste; if so, we will simply refer
them to any of the two hundred and fif ir
people who were present.
What can be more satisfying to lovers
of music than her rendition of "Sunset"?
Between this piece and Mendelssohn's
"Harvest Field," sung by Mrs. Kirkland
and Mrs. DeBois. many would find it
difficult to make a choice. These two
ladies, also Mrs. Arment. Mr. Lauber.
Mr. Clampett and Mr. Garland us usual
were obliged to respond to encores before
the delighted audience would settle into
a state of quietude. We have heard cele
brated artists sing "Annie Laurie," and
can safely say that Mrs. Arment's inter
pretation was in every way an artistic
success. It was naturally and beautifully
sung and evidently greatly impressed the
audience. One of the most pleasing
numbers on the programme was the
charming manner in which Mrs. DeBois
sang "The Watermill,"' as an encore to
her fine rendering of "The Day is Done."
It will be seen by a perusal of the pro
gramme given below that this entertain
ment was uuique in the fact that instru
mental solos were carefully omitted.
Xow while we think this a good idea
for as a rule, most musicales have too
many instrumental and too few vocal
solos, yet in this instance, we wish we
might have beard Mrs. Kirkland as she
is a most brilliant accompanist.
We should advise the Knights of Py
thias to give their next entertainment in
a larger room for it must have been very
uncomfortable for those who were obliged
to stand in the ante-room, being unable
to obtain seats in the crowded hall. Had
there been more room, many of our citi
zens would not have gone away, thus
losing one of the most enjoyable events
of the evening.
The concise and graceful little speech of
Chancellor Commander Lauber, thank
ing the friends of the Order for their at
tendance, was equally in keeping with
the excellent programme. g. h.

Death of James E. Wriirht.
Last Sunday mowing R. M. Wright
received a telegram from Guthrie, I. 'P..
stating that his son James had received
bis death blow at the hands of a man
named Campbell. He at once started for
Guthrie, but his son bad died before he
reached there. The only information we
have concerning this tragic death, leads
us to believe that it was accidental. At
an altercation Saturday night in which
a number of men took a baud, he stepped
between to make peace when he received
a deep cut in the groin, from which he
died Sunday morning. The weapon used
was au ordinary pocket knife.
The remains were brought to his borne
in this city yesterday afternoon, and the
funeral will take place this afternoon on
the arrival of his mother from St. Louis.

I Advantages of Ituildiiig- and Loan
The popularity of building and loan
associations form the best evidence of
tbeir sefiilue3. Thev have .-tood the
trial of years. They have steadily grown
in favor, and have met with uniform suc
cess. Their history ha. justitied the uni
versal belief iu their prosperity. Iu a
marked degree, they have accomplished
the great purpose of preserving the small
savings of the people with safety, of in
vesting them with security and of in
creasing them with certainty. They have
to a very great extent, taken the place of
savings banks, for the reason that they
are more profitable both to the laborer
and the capitalist. They have brighten
ed the future of the industrious, encour
aged economy, stimulated small enter
prises and enabled the bread-winners to
build, occupy and own their workshops
and their homes. The permanent char
acter of building aud savings associations
iusures increase iu the number of busi
ness transactions, a greater experience to
their officers and members, and opens a
field where the skill of the capitalist and
the savings of the worker can be employ
ed in union and harmony with profit to
each, whether borrower or non-borrower.
With such special features, and
many others not enumerated, savings
associations can justly preseut their
claims to the good will of the industri
ous, the economical, and the prudent.
The business men and citizens of Dodge
City should study and investigate the
merits and benefits of these associations.
They are not fictitious iu any sense of
the word, but are worthy of the patron
age and encouragement of any commu
nity. It is only the few, the very few. who
grow rich by speculation The foolish
notion that something will turn up, or
that we will very soon be the great com
mercial center of the universe, and thus
become rich, is only a delusion. Mil
lions have gone through life, following
after just such delusions, until a paupers
grave was reached. It i not what one
makes, but what he saves that make men
rich. And most men iu comfortable
circumstances have made their inoney
by savinic and investing tbeir dimes and
