WICHITA STEAM LAUNDRY
Will Tjc Heady for -.usi-icss 2 ex. Hon-

A reporter passing tho Wichita Steam
Laundry yesterday, which is located on First
street, between Water and3rain streets, saw
that everything had assumed a business-like
appcaranco ia that section. But a short tour
cf inspection disclosed that another enter
prise of no small dimensions was on tho eve
of operation. The building is a two story
brick with a front of forty feet and seventy
fivo feet deep.
The boiler is a fifty horso power and was
mado by tho Indianapolis Atlas Engine
work.. It furnishes all the steam used about
the establishment, both in running the ma
chinery and for tho many other purposes to
which it is applied. Theenginois a twenty
horse power and has all the modern improve
ThoTaragwanath heater is used for raising
tho water to the boiling point before it is
forced into tho boiler. It gains its heat from
tho exhaust pipo of tho engine. The dry
room is twenty feet long, seven feet wide
and seven and a half feet high. In tho base
ment of it is 500 feet of one and ono-half inch
pipe. Steam from tho boiler is ltd to this
direct from tho boiler by means of a pipe
which gives a temperature of 200 degreess
Fahrenheit. After passing through the pipe
in the dry room all tho water formed bycon
densntion is led to a large tank. It is used
in washing tho finer fabrics, suck as flannels,
blankets, silks, etc.
On the e:ist sido of the building arc three
washers. Ono of them is called tho Troy and
tho other two aro of tho Cambridge make..
The trio have a capacity of 200 shirts in two
hOTirs. They are all of the latest improved
style nnd have a reversablo cylinder. Three
revolutions aro mado in one direction and
four in another. Tho goods are washed by
falling and not subjected to any old-fashioned
rubbing piocess by which they aro too
often more or lo-ss injured usually more.
The Cambridge extractor is the piece of
machinery that is most calculated to catch
the oye of the spectator. It makes from fif
teen hundred to two thousand revolutions
per minute. Tho clothes aro taken from the
washers and placed in tho basin, which is
perforated. jThey are allowed to remain in
it but a fe.v', minutes, and on being taken
out in laundry parlance aro "not wet but
Tho copper starch kottlo is numbered
among the modern conveniences. The base
of it is furrounded by a pipe tin ough which
lam is passed, which nfioids enough heat
to mako eight gallons of water boil iadus
trIouly in one minute.
Tho collar and cuff starching machine has
a capacity of twenty dozen collars and cuffs
in half an hour. Iho collar and cuff damp
ing machine has unlimited capacity. It is
the only one of the kind in tho state and is
of great service. Tho "o. S Troy
collar and cuff machine irons six hundred
dozv.-n of collars and cuffs per d vy. It is the
only machine of that sort in the state. Tho
Wat'onshht honor has a capacity of two
hundred and lift 3- shirts per day. It is of
modern improvement and is tho only ono in
tho state. Another valuablo machiuo to be
scon in tie establishment is the Wilson &
binder neck band, wrist band, and ladie.V
tapocollw machine. Tho collar and cuff
simper and fhirt press aro alao ready for
When a dilrpidated collar first makes its
appearance in the establishment it is sent to
the marking room, v.heie it is listed and th.
owners name put on with iudelliblo ink. It
then goes to the w aching machine whero it
icniams about two hours. It then migrates
to the bluing tub and from thonce to the ex
tractor where the extra water is sent off at a
taugen. without ceremony. It is then re
moved to the starch table and is next ad
mitted to tho dry room. When dry it goes
to tho damper, then to the ironer and shaper
when it soon is seen upon the sorting table,
v.Loro it is given its place to await tho callol
The office department is sixteen feet square
and is uirely furni-hed and arranged, being
supplied with desks and counteis and every
thing necessary to carry on the business ac
cording to a system. It will always be oc
cupied by ono of tho proprietors.
Tho second stoiT of tho building is as yet
unorcupied. When the trade demands it
the capacity of the plant will be increased
by placing machinery in it. Tho boiler is
large enough to run three times the present
amount of machinery.
Tim steam pump should not be allowed to
r'-inain unnoticed, lc has sufficient power
to throw a stream of water over any build
ing in the city. It is fitted up and a number
of feet of hose secured ready to mnke war
on a tire if ic should mvade that neighbor
hood. It affords desirable protection.
The plant will bo ready next Monday to
commence work for the public. It
will bo in op-ration today and
this evening, and tho doors open for
callers. Anyone wishing to seo the best
steam laundry in the state has an opportun
ity to do so.
Tho plant cost somethiug over -$1S,000. It
is ov.ued by 'ewton Garst.'W. B. Eraser and
Thoimu. B. Garst, The former came to this
city in January, 'So. He had traveled for
some years iu tho west and all the time kept
looking lor the hot city in which to locate
iu bu-iue-s. Ho had spent somo time in the
glorious "climate of Californy" and visited
a number of tho booming towns on the coa.-r,
bat heai d so much of Wichita that ho de
cided to make an inspection for himself be-
foro coming to a final decision. On reaching
I hi.- city he decided to locato here. He was
joined the following Juno by his brother
Thoma-, and they operated a laundry very
suc--tully, it will be remembered, on West
Dougla- avenue, until their establishment
." burned hist spring. When
they met with that loss
th-forgot to ask for a bonus 111 order to

Inspitoof tho dieagreeablo evening tho
fair was well attended. Tho little books are
fast filling up with names and as the time
draws near which is to decide who aro the
holders of the fortunato tickets the interest
iew articles are continuing to be added to
the already large list. 2frs. P. V. Healy

elegant pair of vases, 3Irs. J. C. Strong a
perfume cushion, Mrs. C. H. Smyth a piano
cover, 2Irs. Copeland a brush holder, Irs.

very highly entertained the audience. The
new featuret promised for this evening is a
recitation by Airs. il. E. Lease; a ong by
Hiss Emma Hazeu with piano accompani
ment by 3Iiss Clark.
One of the best patronized departments
last evening was tho "draw stand," presided
over by two charming Jittlo mis.es of ten.
They corralled Capt. Richey and before he
could retire, they had all his loose change,
and ho was loaded down with all kinds of
fancy articles and toy3.

Last evening Judge Wall, about dusk, left
his house, No. I3o North Emporia, to go to
the Tremont for a fow minutes; Mrs. Wall
was also away from nomo. When tho judge
returned hi found tho door partly open and
thought ho heard a noise in tho rear of tho
house, but paid littlo attention to it. He
then went to a case for a cigar and found
cigars and box gone. His honor began to
suspect someone had gono through tho house,
and, after making a thorough investigation,
found that the thief, who had very evidently
a fondness for fine clothes, hnd taken two
suits belonging to tho judge, himself, and a
suit belonging to his little boy.
Tho only clue so far is that the burglar may
be a stranger who entered a restaurant on
Douglas near tho corner of Emporia about
the time of the burglary carrying a bundle
of clothing under his arm and acting in a
Judge says ho has been wanting an excuse
for some timo to buy a now &uit of clothes,
and now ho has it.
Last evening at 7 o'clock Mr. J. O. David
son and Miss Bassio Carver, of Jacksonville,
Illinois, wero married by tho Rev. T. S.
Hodgson at tho residence of Mr. and Mrs.
Will Woodman, at the corner of Waco ave
nue and Oak streets. The marriage was a

number of eastern cities.
They wero tho recipients of many elegant
and costly presents.
Some time ago Mrs. A. G. Waldeu missed
a fino pair of gold-rimmed spectacles. Mr.
Waldcn had his suspicions as to tho uerson
who had taken them, and determined to put
his suspicions to a test. Yesterday ho sent
tho suspected man to his house for a trunk,
leaving a 2 bill upon tho table of his room.
When ho called Mrs. Walden left him alone
in the room for soma time, and upen her re
turn the money was gono. After his return
to the A. D. T. office, ho was searched by an
officer, but tho money could not be found.
The man was then about to bo dismissed
when ho was seen to throw a chow of tobacco
into the stove. This was quickly taken out
of the coals, and within was rolled up the
bill. Thus detected, ho gave up tho glasses,
aud was taken to the cooler by Officer Clark.
He gave the name of Wilson, and his busi
ness a drayman, his correct name, however,

be served from G until 0 o'clock. Proceeds

"TAKE IT AWAY."
The weather yesterday was measley and
paralyzing. A cold rain commenced to fall
near noon and about 4 o'clock was badly
mixed with snow. The snow became thicker
and thicker until it was all snow and it look
ed as though it was coming to stay. The
mud called out the rubbers, and was too
much for the bootblacks.
Yesterday morning the fire alarm sounded
at 5:30; tho department hurried up North
Main and found a house, occupied by a col
ored family named Burson, and situated op
posite the Occidental grocery, in flames.
They succeeded in extinguishing the blaze
but not until it had almost completely de
stroyed the house. The origin of tho fire is
not definitely known.
As tho foot race ka fallen through with,
tho next entertainment promised the sport
ing fraternity is a prize fight. Tho two con
testants are now in the city; on a resident
of this section, the other more recently ar
rived, nnd now undergoing training for the
coming match. Tho ght, however, it is
thought will not take place in tho city, but
THE FOOT RACE.
The foot race failed to materialize and last
evening Mr. Kettlemaa and his manager,
Swain, left the city for the east.
Different reasons are assigned for the fail
uro to complete the negotiations, but tho
one most generally given is that Kettleman
would not givo tho odds that Gibson and his
backers demanded. Thero is soma regret
expressed among sporting men, 03 they were
anxious to see a race between these two men.

Last Wodnesday nighs a gambler on West
Douglas avenue, whoso nose by virtue of its
color would stop a locomotive, thought to
clean tho tablo when the game became doubt
ful. His opponent did not consider himself
able physically to induce him to do other
wise and it wa3 very evident that nothing
olso would fit tho crime. Another lad of tho
gambling brotherhood appeared upon tho
sctno and tho danger signal was soon turned
up to tho gas light. Tho third party mado a
temporary court out of himself, issued and
served a search warrant, and the money re
gained as a result.
Tho Woman's Guild of St. John's Episco
pal church last evening gave another of their
delightful socials at the residence of Col.

though very disagreeable, did not prevent a
large crowd from asssmbling. Refreshments
wero served alter the following most delight

The cold, disagreeable weather of last night
caused every person to seek shelter from the
storm. In the room of an East Douglas ave
nue joint wero gathered around tho stovo a
crowd of worn out .porting men and pro
fessional bums. The weather at first became
the subject of 'conversation, and in their
efforts to tell the biggest lie of the coldest
day that over crossed their respective paths,
a general row ensued. Beer glasses filtod tho
air, bottles took wings and bobbed around
tho faces and heads of tho party, and
furniture of all kind took a rapid rising ten
dency. In about ilvo minutes order was,
through the interference of tho jointisc,
somewhat restored, but tho establishment
sold nothing more to drink during the night
and the proprietor went out and locked the
door of ono of the most completely wrecked
rooms that man could ever expect to see.
ALL BROKE UP.
Yesterday a gentleman was lamenting to a
crowd of friends about his bad luck in betting
during tho past few weeks. He said he had
bnried a good deal of money on the late elec
tion. He had not made a bet that he thought
was at all doubtful. Most of them ho consid
ered a "sure thing" and. before tho decision,
was inclined to censure himself for being un
fair. Fortune, however, turned against hiai
and he got left to a dol!r.
Next chance to mako his money back, n-j
ho thought, was on the foot race. Ho filled
his purso with a few hundred and started for
the fair grounds. Ho was uro ho was on
the inside and thought now his chance to
make up for reverses. He let himself loose !

his mind, that they had cast no shadow before
