Church Opened Yesterday at
Hall I-cautlfcUy Decorated Troth Flass
and llantlnc-A Good SUowlas
Yesterday was the opening day of the
German Lutheran fair at tho G. A. R. build
ing. Tho morning hours were spent by tho
various committees in getting tho different
booths aud oxhibits in place and in decorat
ing tho hall. It was a busy scene, with
hatchets aud hammers being applied to tho
nail?, and everyone urging Ilia rest in getting
his part of the work done.
Tha afternoon found everything ready fcr
exhibition. Tho hall presented a beautiful
scene w illi its elaborate decorations. The
attendance in the evening was larger than
during tho day. The crowd was as lanre as
was expected for the first day. It was suffi
cient to place courago in the minds of all
connected and assure them that tho cnter
nriso would provo a success. Tho eiforts of
the .solicitors for the different prizes to bo
awarded met with cheering success, and it is
safe to say that no one can complain of hav
ing no opportunity to get a chanco at many
desirable articles. Tho dimo that wauts to
vacate tho purse hoping to havo tho lucky
number will not bo at a los to find an ener
getic, rosy-cheeked little girl to givo it a
Hear the center of the hall stands tho offi
cers booth. It Ls laotcf ully decorated with
flowers, evergreens, flags aud bunting. With
in will bs found a largo collection of silver
ware and many ai tides of valno to bo voted
to popular candidates. Tho officers of tho
fair remain thero most of tho time, and
leud advico and instruction wherever de
sired. Tho following is a list of tho officers:
President. Mrs. Jacob Bissantz.
Vice-President. Mrs. Henry Bolto.
Secretarv. Mra. A. Wiegand.
Treasurer. Mrs. F. Summers.
Cors. Sect 'y. Mrs. A. Lucdicke.
Committco 01 arrangements. Messrs. F.
G curing, Wm. Tusch, aud 'ra. Meyer.
Entering tho hall the first booth discov
ered upon tho right is tho fish pond. It is
presided over by Misse-? Julia Summers,
Amelia Eissanzb and Emma CJribi. The
fisher can find almost any species ho desires.
Ho don't usually have to wait -y long or
quit talking and is never infringca upon by
a falsa alarm. This is proving 6no of tho
attractive features of tho fair.
The faucy work booth is undor ths control
of MesdamcsA. C. Weber, Amelia Tusch
and Agnes Summers' In this .department
cau be found all tho varieties of work in
that lino and a visit to it seems to bo espe
cially entertaining to tho ladles. Many of
tho exhibits are pronounced by all as espe
Tho doll department is managed by Miss
nortenso Miller and Frida Kleutr.. This
booth is well supplied with exhibits in that
liue. Tho littlo wagons and cradles woro not
Tho Spanish booth is presided over by
Misses Albertino Bilhnan and Amelia
Franke. Tho large display of candies and
fruits, almost delicious enough to make an
honest man steal, speaks well for thoso iu
charge. Tho musical instruments of Spanish
shapo and tona aro to bo found thcro, and
make it one of the attractive booths of tho
hall. A twelve pound pear, which was
brought here from St. Louis, catcher tho
eyes of many spectators.
Tho domestic booth is superintended by
Mesdames H. Tadgeuhorat, F. Wiscnfluh and
It. Schumacher. This collection shows in
dustry on tho part of tho committee. It con
tains almost everything hi their lino of ex
hibits. Tho west booth on tho north siiro is called
the curiosity shop. -It contains a number of
antique exhibits. The old tuno dressing ap
parel and household furniture is represented.
ltebccca at tho well is presided over by a
change of ladies. Last night Miss Anna
Gribi supplied tho thirsty with lemonade,
aud despite tho fact that "Jack Frost" was
about to capturo tho out world atmosphero
t'ae sales seemed to bo unusually numerous.
Tho fortuun wheel makes a turn every now
and then and usually "of toner," and many
articles aro given to an unexpected owner.
The coHeo and cako stand is carefully at.
tended by Mrs. A. Lucdicko and MissMinnio
Paul Theso articles aro served in a most ex
cellent manner, and their virtue is discussed
by tho many who partake.
The supper tablea are presided over by
Mrs. Win. Tusch, Mrs. F. Sclmiteler, Mrs. F.
Meissr.er, Mrs. A. Bruhu, Mrs. Scheuler, Mrs.
Springborn, Miss Aunio Holler, Miss Fannie
Beck aud Miss Minnie Yollmer.
Everything necessary for a good sound
squaro meal is erved thero. A good busi
ness was started last night; aud tho ladies are
reasonably sure of holding their customers.
Nothing Wiisrafikvl oil last night, butauum
ber of articles will find owners tonight. Tho
candidates for tho gold headed cauo, Messrs.
Wm. GroifTensttin.and II. D. IIeierman
have not loomed up very ouorgotically yet in
thit department, but some iutcrest from
that section is expected before they reach
ths home stretch.
Tho plug hat candidates, Messrs. Fred.
Hoffniaster and C. B. Stocker are still upon
the anxious scat, each apparently afraid to
make the opening campaign effort.
The candidates for prosecuting attorney
are out on tho prairio cha?iug tho fleeting
votes, but will no doubt havo their interests
repeaicd in that section.
The tally kecjwrs of tho balloting are
Messrs. John Knnobianch, Henry Ivalte

Among tho latest schemes that have made
their little tow into tho city is an asphalt
roofing manufactory. The question has been
under discussion for a number of months.
Mr. J. S. Biser, who ha3 for sometime been
engaged in laying asphalt sidewalks, and who
is familiar with questions of that naturo has
been giving considerable attention to tha en
terprise. There has been a utoek company raised
with a capital stock of 25,000. A charter
has been applied for. Tho following gentle
men aro connected with the company: C.R.
Miller, J. O. Davidson, E. P. Hovey, J. S.
Riser, and Messrs Niedler and Wray, of Ean
sasCity. A site for the plant has been do
nated in tho southeast part of tho city,
and at an early date work is
expected to commence on the building. It
will havo a forty foot front and be ono
hundred and twenty feet deop. Tho -sides
will be built of carrogated iron. The use to
which it will be applied docs not call for but
a single story, which will b near fourteen
Tho cost of machinery and tools and tho
necessary teams which ic is proposed to start
out with will possibly not exceed $3,000.
With this capacity tho manufactory will
furnish employment to twenty-five men.
Tho success of tho plans will determine
whether tho forco will bo increased. Tho
prospect, however, in tho minus of thoso
most familiar with tho business, is flattering
enough to cause them to believo this force
can be doubled when tho material is onco
thoroughly introduced into tlw country.
Tho company propose to work tho schemo
for what thero is ia it. Tho facilities for
getting all tho necessary rough material here
aro considered good and the company will
supply all the adjoining counties with tho
rooffing. First-class gravel can bo secured
but a short distance from whero tho plant is
located, and taking everything into consid
eration, it is believed that tho roofing can bo
manufactured as cheap as in any other city.
It i3 not kuowiTdeflnitely when tho plant
will be ready to commeco work. It is pro-
posod to commence tho eroction of a building
in a fow days and tho necessary machinery
is already ordered.
Tho two members of tho company from
Kansas City left last night for their home.
Thoy will return in a fow days and make ar
rangements to mako this their futuro home.
That bricks of a good if not of a superior
quality can bo and has been mado at the
yards of Wichita, the many fino brick resi
dences and business buildings, tho walls of
which aro constructed from material burnt
at tho kilns of tho city, aro tho best evidence.
Ono of tho latest additions to this industry
was called to tho attention of areporterwhilo
in tho northern part of the city.
It was tho yards situated between Seven
teenth and Eighteenth streets near Chisholm
creek and owned by Jolmathan
A7ilsoa, a gentleman who recently caino
t) the city from Lawrenceburgh, Ind.
About twenty men aro employed, five
mills are operated and over 10,030 bricks
moulded daily. A massivo kiln, containing
about 500,000 bricks, i3 burning and will
soon bo ready to cool. Another as large was
Tho sand used was dug near tho mill and is
said to bo excellent for tho purpose; it ap
pears to become better the deeper gono
down; but on account of tho water tho exca
vations aro not over sovon feet deep.
Thero appears to bo a great demand for
this land of building material. Mr. Wilson
said that his bricks are disposed of sometimes
oven before they are cool enough to handle.
His experience ia this regard ia tho same as
thai of many others of tho owaors of tho
largo yards of tho city.
'DON'T L.K1 IT OUT. ' '
Yesterday a couplo of prominent gentle
men of tho city thought to ceaie from busi
ness for a timo and discus3 politics for a
change. Neither of tV em were sworn sup
porters of either of tho two great parties, but
incliued to be "independent." They had not
been engaged long until a question was sug
gested upon which ueithor was very' pain
fully "independent.'' Soon 1111 animated dis
cursion was the result. Tho forco of tho re
marks increased rapidly as tho moments
passed, aud soon both were occupying a
staunch attitude while hands on their gesticu
lativo errands did not miss tho fares but a
few 'inches. This distance diminished
very rapidly until ono of them camo in con
tact with a chin. Tho owner of tha afore
said chin took immediate action for the lit
tle demonstration and a straight cut and out
scrapping match resulted. Tho gentleman
in the adjoining room had a volume of
Blackstone in his hand and was attracted by
tho disturbance. Tho cessation of hot words
aud commencement of blows was the signal
for him to attempt "to bring about peace
among his ofii-e neighbors. Ho mado haste
to do so, and was joiued by some others who
assisted in increasing tho spaco between tho
belligeients. !No one killed and tho word
said quietly, "dou't let it out.''
Last Saturday morning this paper stated
that H. G. Leo received a telegram from
a doctor at Xyack, X. Y., that Mrs. Lee,
w'ao had been visiting there, was dangerous

A COtlPKTKT JUDGE.
A prominent Kansas City business man,
who spent eovoral hours driving about the
resident and business streets of this city,
stated yesterday that Wichita had made a
greater growth this year than had Kansas
City during any single year of her history,
especially was the fact observable a3 to the
resident portion and line homes.
Last night about 8 o'clock the notorious
Ironclad sent in another periodical police
call. The officer responded with his presence
and found that a couplo cf innate toughies
were holding a picnic over each other's
bones. Everything was in a flurry of ex
citement U3 though pistols and knives had
never been seen in that locality. Tho cala
boose opened its doors and allowed a few
more lodgers for the evening. John Doa is
en deck for today in tho police court.
2d"r. Wilson Myers wa3 out driving yes
terday on tin West Side and had occasion to
hitch his horso to leavo him for a short time.
On returning he found that the carriage aud
horso was gone. A short timo after ho
learned that ki3 horse had' dropped dead a
few blocks from thcro while- engaged in a
first-class runaway. The carriage was also
considerable damaged' but did not die over
"See here," said a corpulent gentleman
yesterday, to ono much smaller thau himself.
'I want to put you onto a littlo schemo so
you will know not to blow it when you hear
by accident some day a fellow talking about
it. A fow of us fellows in this city are go
ing to build a brido before long, and wo are
now working up tho Eubscription."
The sub rosa talker then gavo the locality
of the bridge, but that part of tho conversa
tion will bo withheld, as it was tho only part
that waa not known to the humble scribo be
fore. POLICE COUKT.

A NEW DEPAUTUKE.
Thero has been laid upon our table's little
folio sheet entitled "The Searcher," published
br Dr.s. Breen and Wilson, of this city. This
paper starts out with the observation that
"It is a matter of profound regret to us a3
well as to thousand of other truo physicians
aud surgeons, that our co-do of Medical Eth
ics will not alloiv a legular practioncr to ad
vertise. As specialist.-;, therefore, being very
conscientious, we propose to do our duty."'
We never could appreciate tho old school phy
siciau's code touching advertising. Dr. Breen
who has spent years hi fome of the largest
ho-'pitals of the world whero the eye, ear and
thi oat only are treated; namely: tho Royal
London Abthalmic hospital, Morfiold, Eng
land ; tho New York Eye and Ear Infirmary,
and tho Illinois Stato Eye and Ear Infir
mary, Chicago, surely does the proper thing
iu informing tho public of his ability and fit
ness as a surgeon to treat especially diseases
of tho eye, ear and throat. Dt-. Wilson is
the inventor of popular surgicai device.-, we
believe. These gentlemen can bo found at
their rooms, 151 North Main street.
