They danced on the

bled on shipboard, and headed for home, and

Yesterday was a regular scorcher, it was
wann in the morning, warmer at 10 o'clock
and boiling over at 12 o'clock, everyone be
gan to show the effect of tho weather but
still the exercises went on as usual after the
opening exercises, but still it was hot.
The arithmetic classes were well attended
J and the question of percentage was well ex
plained fey Mr. Joy, but he looked hot while
going through the exercises, but the class
seemed to ignore the weather and exerted
themselves to the l)Cst of their abilities.
The class in penmanship worked by music,
having the organ played by a member of the
Class to assist in keeping time. All seemed
to catch the idea and made the lesson very
profitable, but the weather was so hot that
everj-one looked very meek at the close.
Physiology is as attractive as ever, and the
numbers on the increase, as it is a branch
that has not been looked into for a longtime,
but now every one has to be examined in f
physiology before getting a certificate, but
all are improving. Yesterday the chemical
properties of food were given, and other
points of information which were good but
every one seemed exhausted at the end of
each recitation, but by the use of fans and
plenty of ice water they would recuperate by
the time they got to the next they are ready
for the next exercise.
The class in constitution was very prompt
with their replies and questions. The sub
ject of bills of attainder, postfacto laws, and
a number of the ow ers of congress given as
well as a number of items of importance in
state rights, also the treat' between England
and the United States that is now pending,
also the acquistion of territory and -the cost
of each, and some other points were explained
that were good, but it was getting to be ter
rible hot by this time and every one struck
for the ice water, but it was soon drank up
slick and clean and the i est had to take it
straight, it might be very health' but it was
The time of recess was taken up by the
members of the institute in fanning them
selves with fans, hats, books and papers
everything that would cause a commotion in
the air. so that when the bell rang every one
found their place and the class in Philosophy
took up the subject of pneumatics and the ac
tion of air and g.ases was explained, different
kinds of pumps, also the barometer was de
scribed. The class in granimcr w as visited, but it
was so hot iu there, just think every seat full,
about twenty boys standing around the room.
The windows were open but tilas there was
about four young men in each window that
cut off the only supply of fresh air that wo
could have had at any price. Keep out of
the windows boys-.
Geography was conducted in an interesting
manner. That mysterious question of the
tides was discussed, but I hardly think it is
The class in leading had an exercise with
cards, showing the manner of teaching small
children, which will be continued.
The class in bookkeeping had a good reci
tation, and the process of posting Avas weil
explained, so that most of the books will be
posted at the next meeting; but how hot it
was in that room! Every one was glad to
make a change, and when the institute closed
every paper collar had wilted and the young
men that generally come here looking so
sweet, with then hats sticking on about three
hairs, and looking as though they had just
been taken out of a drawer, were terribly dc
11101 alized in looks, paper collars wilted and
handkerchiefs wet with mopping their noble
As for tho young ladies, that usually look
so good and sweet that every one has a great
amount of regard for them, they looktd as
though they were eutiieiy sick of this world,
for spit curls and bangs would not remain in
place; and if their had been any of the young
ladies that were given to painting, it would
have been discovered. But everybody says
it is hot; so I say.
Mr. Thomas Clark, of Millstone, Pennsyl
vania, arrived in tho city a few days ago,
having started west with the avowed inten
tion of visiting Wichita to see what all that
"boom racket"' was about. He says it did
not take him long to see w hat was tho mat
ter, and as evidence that he comprehended
the situation he invested largely in real estate.
He says tho city is even more than its "boom
ing reputation"' in the oast. He left last even
ing for a few days' stay in the western part
of the state and will return to the city and
remain some days.
