KATIK PUTS AM.
This iady begins a three nights' engage
ment at the opera house, on Z-Ionday evening
in Lena, the .Madcap, concerning which the
Louis vill Coui ier-Journal says:
Mis Katie Putnam played again Lost night
before the laigest audience which has assem
bled here this reason. If we n.ay except the
first act, which is in tho nature of a prologue
to what followed, the play throughout, was
one of deep interest, and was well sustained
by ihe entire company, jliss Putnam, in the
diameter of Lena added new laurels to her
already well establi.-hed fame sis an actress
in this city. FJars maybe often aro picked
in the playing of the most finished artists, but
the best means, after all, of the judgment of
the merits of an actor or an aetit-ss is by in
quiring of the public. An artist w ho toucLcs
the hearts of the public, who satisfies its de
jjirc for tm.u'emuit, pc-teses meiit whether
it can be dc-monstiated by the value of crit
icism or not. This faculty Slits Putnam pos
sesses in a degree far above tho aveiago and
to an talent that entitles her to rank among
tho stars of tho American stage. Applying
this rule to the t'eifoiinanccof last night she
ia entitled to unstinted praise."
The manner in which tho new guttering is
being tieatcd by .cme parties engaged in
building is thought by many to be worthy of
criticism. Li places ttono and all sorts of
buildinjr material is bcinir dumped out upon
the new work, battel ing it and injuring it to
no small extent. In fiont of tho I'oble, Mc-
Clces, Myei-s & llcist'i man building on Main
street, between First and Second streets can
be tec n an exhibition of injurious treatment.
The citr inglnecr says ho is paying close
attention to Air. Sumption's woik,
who has- tho contiavt of laying the
guttering, and he knows so far he has been
doing an excellent job.. This leads him to
Kiy t hiit ho will accept the contract from
him w hen completed although careless con
tracting and "don't care'' employes damage
the work to no in ouiderable extent. He
thinks tome measures should -be taken fo
make those who arc the cause of the damage
to pay lor the tame and tho authorities in
structed to arrest anyone doing damage to
that part of the ciij s properly as airy other.

AVhen this oS?cr attempted to put her tip

howling so as soon to attract a very large

THE SKVKNTII BAY ADVENTlsTS.
The Seventh Day Adveatista aro arriving
and making preparation for their camp
meeting. All yesterday afternoon the mem
bers of this sect who are now hire wore en
gaged in erecting a tent upon the level tract
of ground in West Yfichita just cast of Syca
more street. This is tho smaller twit and
will bo used for the German part of the con
gregation; the other oue, which is now on
tho way, is much larger and in it will be
held the main devotional services.
The first meeting will 'be held tomorrow
evening, commencing at T.-SCo'elock and will
be iu charge of Elder Cook, of Ft. Scott, one
of the leading men of this sect in the state.
On the following Sunday, the 10th iusfc.,
the camp meeting proper will begin and"
continue for seven days; sessions being held
both during the day and at evening. It is
j expected that about three hundred members
will bo present, among whom, will bo the
most prominent of this state. Elder Rodgers,
i of Emporia; Bugby, of Moline; Cook, of Fort
Scott; Hill, of Gonola. Elder Sehultz, of
Nebraska, the noted German divine of tho
Sjct, will also bo present.
Tho tenants of their faith is a strict observ
ance of the commands of God and believe in
the coming of the Lord. They do not pre
tend to be able to predict the exact tiui3 at
which this great event will take place, but
believe ic will be ia the near future.
Peter Settingrew, yestesday in tho police
court, where he was brought beiora his hon
or for being drunk, reported that ho had
been robbed tin night before. His story is
that he had six fifty-dollar bills and some
twenties in his pocket when he left homa,and
that on Thursday night about 12 o'clock ho
had been knocked down by somo ono ap
proaching him from behind and robbed of
every thing he had with tho exception of a
few dollars. Policeman Liioy, who
saw him shortly after ho said
ho had been robbed, noticed that
his face aud clothes were covered with
dirt and his eyo blaeke 1. He told tho same
story, but as ho was intoxicated not much
attention was paid to it.After his repeating
it in the court tho oHiccr made somo inquiry
aad found that he received a short time be
fore about $UiK) from John Coodyeav. This
may perhaps bare been tho. money of which
he claims to have been robbed. The police,
however, do not put mum faith iu his stor
and think it is only an imagination of his
di unkeu brain.
