an opportunity to obtain a busiuess educa

ing of a large plate glass, which a colored

A BUSY CITY.
Yesterday was another busy day in the
city. Tho business streets were crowded
with people from the morning hours until
late last night. A lame man whp could not
keep up with tho crown or was unable to be
an expert in getting out of the way, found
littlo entertainment in trying to stem the
tide. It was interesting to hear a couple of
gentlemen who had lately arrived in the
city taBc while standing ou the comer of
Douglas and Main. One of them was from
Ohio and the other from Iowa. "What
crowds of people,"' one would say. "I
wonder where they all come from'''" the
other would remark. -'Whoa will the pro
cession endf and many similar expressions
were made. Roth seemed to think that
they had never expected to seo anything of
the kind in any town in Kansas.
In conversation with the proprietor of one
of tho leading hotels hi the city ho said that
during the last week the arrivals iu tho city
had been much greater than for some weeks.
All tho eastern states are largely represented
bothbymeen seeking business aud specu
lators. JUSTICE COIIItT.
Yesterday Bud Wariuouth, a jointist, on
East Douglas avenue, was arrested aud
waltzed before Justice Walker, charged with
having "put a head' on W. Lumbert, a con
stable from Goddard. Bud told his story of
the affair with tho expressed hope that he
would get off easy. He said that Warmouth
came into his establishment with a crowd of
toughs and called for "some goods."' While
he was getting tha "goods" ready tho crowd
pulled matches to see who would have to pay
for tho "goods." They fi daily stuck the
"goods"' under "their arm' and started to
walk out. Ho interfered, and was received
rather harshly, and not being disposed to al
low them Lo ran over him he opened up a
box of a peculiar spscies of persuasive argu
ment. Ho was tared ono dollar and trim
mings. A NEW STUDIO.
Mr. W. S. Rogers, tho photographer,
opened up a branch house last week in AVcl
lington. It is in chargo of Mr. Russell, who
worked with him in this city the past year,
and who is favorably known as a crayon
artist. Mr. Rogers expresses himself as well
pleased with tho opening trade at his now
studio.
Mr. Rogers has taken tho premium on
work in his lino at the fair in this city for
six consecutive years. Tho Kansas Photog
raphers association, recognizing his ability
in tho profession, made him its president at
the meeting held last September at Topeka.
He says ho means to turn out as good work
for tho Wellington people as for "Wichita.
This is suggestivo of congratulations for tho
former city.
