SUNDAY MORNING. DEC. 12, 1S80.
The grade stakes of the Rock Island
Lave reached Wichita and dirt will fly from
this on until the track reaches Douglas
avenue, the center of the city.
Yesterday L. P. Crouch, the sheriff of
Harper county, obtained a requisition from
Gov. Iartin for Josephine Lowler, who is
now confined at Omaha, Xeb. Mr. Crouch
will take the woman in charge and return
with her to Harper county, where she will
be tried for conspiring to murder her husband.
Senator Ingalls has introduced a resolu
tion calling upon the treasury department
for information as to the oporations of the
oleomargarine law. The officials of the
internal revenue bureau say they cannot
give the desired information at once, but
that the returns for the first month's work
will probably be in by the Kth of De
cember. A large revenue is expected,
some fficials placing the amount as high
The supreme court of Kansas recently
rendered a decision which will be very
gratifying to business men in all the towns
and cities of the state. Here it is: No
town or city has aright to sell any wares
or merchandise on the side walk or on the
street in front of the property of another
person. The street in front of a man's
place of business is held to be an appur
tenance to the lot on which his store is
erected and situated, and belongs to him
and his business :is against all others, ex
cept the right to travel thereon.
Look at'Wichita; but for the start given
thai town by the Santa Fe, the section of
land which comprised the original town
site would be a cornfield, instead of the
wonderful city that it is. Abilene Gazette.
Y'.s, just so. The liveliest burg in Kan
sas was that same "Wichita before the San
ta Fc 1 cached the Arkansas valley. And
another little disagreeable fact knocks the
wind out of the "beautiful picture drawn
from the lively imagination of our cotem
porary, and that h that the Santa Fe has
not lifted a finger to help make Wichita
"the wonderful citv that it is."
Senator Plumb writes the editor of the
Kingman Leader that the postmaster gen
eral assures him that mail service would
be put on the D. 31. k A. at once. For
-this the Eagle among others will be
WICHITA & TRINIDAD.
The Harper Daily Sentinel concludes a
lengthy and comjueheiisive article on the
pioposed AV. & T. iaihvay, and its para
mount importance to the territory to be
traversed and the towns it would serve, as
Wichita, our big neighbor to the north
Ciist, will reap the lum's share of the traffic
f nun this new enterprise, and as usual, the
knowing ones among her citizens are do
imr the most cfTcctual woik for this new
connection with the Rocky mountains. Wc
must now acknowledge Wichita as the
commercial center of Kansas, and more es
peciidly of the southwest just coming into
importance in a commercial way. In order
to compete with eastern cities. Wichita
must have through line connection with
the central marts of trade in the southern
tier of counties uest of her; tedious trans
fers subject to delay will not fill the bill,
and she is well aware of the fact. Not a

NO MAN'S LAND.
Yesteiday the Eagi.i: published a de
scription of No Man's Land, lying south of
the state of Kansas. From a reading of
our Washington di'-patcln.s this morning,
and also a private dispatch to the editor of
the Eagi.i:. it will appear that our repre
sentative Hon. S. It. Peters, secured the
passage of a bill esleiday e.xteudinir the
laws of the United States over "the public
strip," and opening the lauds of the same
to homesteaders. The private dispatch
from .Mr. Peter- says that No Man's Land
-will be attached to Kansas for judicial and
land ollice purposes, which inteiv-ts Wich
ita in so far as the United States district
court is concerned, a- cases aii-ing there
will be st nt to this court without doubt.
The action, however, is a timely one in
otlur respects, a- it opens the land- of that
di-trict to homesteaders, many of whom
have aheady gone in there fiom this state
the past suniiner. The action of our con
gressman will receive the unanimous en
dorsement not only of tin people most di
rectly concerned, but of the people of
Now let's have No Man's Land attached
to Kansas for all other purposes.
NAVE, McCORD & CO.
The AVichita Lagi.k has been screeching
itself hoar-e tellim; its roa ders that Nae,
M( Cord & Co.. one of the large-t whole
sale hou-es in Kansas City, would establi-h
a branch house in Wichita. It even said
the stock had arrived. And now here i
what the linn say.- to a Kau-a- City Star
report. i" "You can say lhat the principal
hou-e of Nave. MeCril v Co. have not
ostabli-hrd a house in Wichita and never
will. Arkansas City Republican.
The screech was neither long or loud.
As for the above there is no denial of what
the Eaolk ga e as a piece of news. We
never said anything about "the principal"
house nor of a "branch Kansas City
house." We simply sissertcd that the firm
or the gentlemen composing the firm of
Nave, McCord Co., who owned jobbing
establishments? in several cities of the west,
had taken the lease of a building in, Wichi
ta and would open a wholesale establish
ment in this city. That building is now
being filled with goods in uubroken pack
ages, which lelong undoubtedly to the
gentlemen composing the linn named, but
whether the AVichita house will be known
by the uame of Nave, McCord vr Co., or
McCord, Nave & Co., or McCord & Co.,
or Nave & Co. we don't know nor care.
They are here with their business and
goods and that is enough for us
The following exposition of the science
upon which the new cure by faith is claim
ed to be based, is from the pen of a student
of the new school and is published by re
Christian science is the word of God ex
plained scientifically. It gives a higher
and deeper meaning to religion than can be
derived from any other source; in fact, this
is the only source from whence true relig
ion can be derived. Science and health,
the student's text-book, and the Bible the
ground-work of their faith and practice.
Deep, careful thinkers, recognize Jesus as
the master scientist, His works are all sci
entific and understood scientifically, can
hz demonstrated scientifically. It removes
the mountains of myth and uncertainty re
garding God and His creation, or God and
His idea, which is man and the universe.
It clearly defines the relation existing be
tween God and man; and supplants the un
certainty of belief with a certainty of un
derstanding. It also clearly defines the
personality and individuality of God and
His idea." God self-existent eternal
omnipotent His works co-existent and co
eternal with Himself. "God the author of
all good and perfect gifts." It clearly sep
arates Him from the molochof the age, and
enables His true followers to walk in the
straight and narrow way, "and Christ is
this way "He is rlrutli, and Lite, and
Light, and any one coming to the Father
inlhis way, or by this way shall in no wise
be cast out." And this way scientifically
understood gives the student a comprehen
sive view of immortality he fails to get
from other sources, especially from the
mythical uncertainties of belief. It teaches
the student how to define His word in a
right and acceptable manner. So they
can well say that it is the guiding star to
all who desire earnestly to walk in AVis
dom's way. It teaches" the difference be
tween the knowledge of this world and
the understanding of Truth, and clearly
shows the worthlessness of professions
without tins understanding, and with this
understanding grace and peace and a near
ness to God that is incomprehensible with
out it, and it gives a comprehension of the
law of God, enabling one to so order their
walk and conversation and know there is
no law but the law of God. The so-called
laws of mortality, materiality and me
diumship are the seemings. "That
which seems to be and is not" the
evil which Christ came to destroy; so prov
ing them not the works of God, but the de
ception the illusion which Christ said was
a falsity "A lie from the beginning."
God never sent His Son to destroy His own
work, but the work of the evil one "And
then shall that wicked be revealed, whom
the Lord shall consume with the spirit
! of His mouth and shall destroy with the
nnghtness ot ills coming. 2u l nes., 'd
chapter, 8th verse. He sent His Son to re
deem that which was lost, and bring back
I lis inheritance to an understanding of
I Iimself .
This is the most important question of
the aire, and let those who do not under-
stant it hs careful to search the scriptures
well before they reject it. For therein they
find life eternal. And they must remember
"The letter of the law killeth," but the
"Spiiit givcth life everlasting.'' "Blessed
are those who do hunger and thirst after
righteousness for they shall be filled."
"The scoffer hath his place appointed with
the unbelievers." So one sees that it is
better to remember that Christ forewarned
not to offend these little ones. "It were
better that a millstone were hanged about
his neck and he be cast into the sea."
Luke 17, ii., Mark 9. xiii. Christian
-ciencc declares "God a spirit, and they
who worship Him must worship Him in
spirit and in truth." John 4, xxvi. It de
clares Him Divine Principle, not person,
pervading all things, and from whence all
blessings flow, the one Life, omnipotent,
omnicient and omnipresent. The creator
of all things "He made all that was made
and there was nothing made without Him."'
"He pronounced His work good, yes-, very
good," so if lie had have created evil it
would have been good, and there need be
no necessity for its destruction; but, being
deception it passed under condemnation,
therebv forminjr a need for a destroyer;
thus Christ becomes the destroyer of the
evil, becoming the atonement, and "by
whom we have now acceived the atone
ment, Homan ., xi. "A willing sacri
fice," "The only begotten of the Father."
"That we through Him might be saved."
"Blending His spirituality with personality,
and suffering the 'just for the unjust' "
"the death on the cross" perfected once
for all the atonement, whereby God could
remain just and the jnstifier of him who
believeth in Jesus" Rom. o, xxvi.
The scientific statement of being proves
man the image and likeness of Geil spir
itual and not material evil, unreal and
temporal, without fo nidation in fact or
scientific origin. The completion of
Christ's works will be the destruction of all
en or, "the last enemy being death." "Then
shall the Son also Himself be subject unto
Him that put all things under Him, that
God may be all in all." 1 Cor., lo, xxviii.
The clergy should be careful how the'
denounce christian science, "lest haply
the' be found even fighting against God."
"It is hard for thee to kick against the
pricks." It is astonishing how they can
read the scriptuie and not discover the
Lord's truth. Mrs. Eddy's students are
authoried to say that she will teach every
earnest clergyman free of charge, if they
will go or come to her. but she does not
want, nor will -he have skeptics, nor scoff
ers, nor self-opinionated bombasts, nor
si If righteous, self sufficient Pharisees, but
earnest tliinkeis and woikers, who are al
ways wanting -sand seeking more of the
manna of life, she will teach willinjrh and
She is a noble-hearted. Christian woman,
and richly deserves all the praise her stu
dents award her, and honor and esteem
they render her. Her lectures are well
worth the pa ing for. and when she oilers
them to ou freely it is a rich gift and
you -houfd render hei honor for her pro
tracted labors and good works. If you do
not quite understand her system of theolo
gy, remember the Bible was and is her
only guide book. And she has diligently
and prayerfully studied and searched the
scriptures, and" she has found AVi-doiu"s
way and she is ready to point it out to you.
with an understanding mind and a grace
and intelligence very becoming to so
erudite a scholar. She will not only point
it out to you. but she unhesitatingly" walks
in it herself, discerning the Master's works
and demonstrating it. " "They shall take
up serpents, and if they drink" anv deadly
tiling it shall not hurt them, and they shall
lay hand- on the sick and they shall re
cover " Mark lt. xviii.
To the Editor of the Eagle.
fcColwich has been silent for sometime, but
her eyes and ears are wide open if her
mouth is shut. Improvement is still the
mode and progress rapid. Our town is not
the mere result of a short-lived boom, but
everything is permanent and substantial.
All our people are thoroughly awake to
the public interests, and what is better yet
they pull together.
Articles of incorporation were this week
drawn up and signed and forwarded to
the secretary of state for a joint stock com
pany to be known as the Eagle Custom
and Merchant Milling Co., and we are to
have a $10,000 grist mill in a short time.
Mr. C, Merkle and G. AV. Stecnrod are the
principal parties who have brought this
about, and every one turned in and helped.
Ituinor has it that there are good pros
pects for the location of the new Congre
gational college here. This college would
have several of the best counties in the
state tributarj' to it, and wield an immense
influence. Itev. Hiram Myers, from
Maize, came down and organized a Con

Mr. J. P. Allen, of Friendship, N. Y..
a gentleman of considerable means and in

residence, and formed a partnership Avith
G. AV. Steenrod in the general merchandise
business. They are going to enlarge their
present quarters, making a room
7G feet deep and will shortly put
in a complete stock of everything a persoa
wants. They will arrange it so as to take
grain and produce of all kinds at the mar
ket price in exchange for goods.
Mr. Allen has bought Mr. Haskins' in
terest in the Town company and is building
one of the finest dwelling houses in town.

AVlry, I know. He went down to Win

Some two weeks since Mr. and Mrs. J.
A. Itew lost their only son, Albee, with
diphtheria. He was a handsome, bright
boy about 12 years of age, and it fell a
very hard blow upon all his sorrowing
friends and playmates, as well as upon the
parents, who have but a daughter left to
bear them up in their affliction.
Mr. David Mitchell, of the Sedgwick
Pantagraph, is going to start the Colwich
Bamblcr and will get out the first paper in
a few days. There is certainly a fine open
ing here and a well run paper cannot help
but succeed. Mr. Mitchell comes highly
leeommended and seems like a man who
understands his business.
Mr. and Mrs. G. AY. AYarreu entertained
a very pleasant progressive euchre party
on Friday evening. Mr. AYill Carr took
the head prize, which was a very pretty
hand glass, and Mr. Steurod the booby
prize, a beautifull' hand painted and artis
tically striped jumping jack. The game
ended at hair past ten and nuts and pop
corn "filled up" the balance o the evening.

To the Editor of Eagle.
Lest you should forget us, permit mc to
say to you that Augusta is not only all
here yet, but that "she booms" as well.
The way real estate has been changing
hands here in the last few days ought not
to be considered beneath the notice of your
Wichita dealers, and the transfers have not
been windy, not by the wind, although the
wind this morning is causing some transfer
of real estate in small quantities, or rather
I should say in large quantities of small
particles, up State street. But seriously,
our people have worked up a boom for
this city that seems to be genuine, as is
shown by the way they put their money
into "dirt." The prospects for railroads
don't all cluster aiound j'our city, and wc
confidently expect railroad connection with
Mulvaue as one of the events of the near
future, whereby the A. , T. iV; S. F. pro
pose to begin tho process of straightening
out its line for the great southwest. Ann
when it shall straighten its line from El Do
rado to Emporia you can easily understand
that this liue must become one of great im
portance as being the most direct line from
your Missouri river competitor to the great
southwest. Then the production of their
line south from Arkansas City toward the
gulf will necessitate or call f&r a division
of this poiut, which. Mr. Eu'i.r, must be
of vast benefit to our little city "'03- the
waters." And then the near future will
find a road from here up tho White Water
Vallev to Xewtcn, bring the rich and vast
product of that valley to our city So you
will pardon u3 for idulgiug in a little flap
ping of wings and a little imitation of what
wc have seen so much of in the Eaci-k.
Elder Hurlbutl. a Baptist evangelist,
closed a series of religious meetings Itcre
on last Tuesday night, which had been
going on alternately at the Baptist and
Methodist churches and at the opera house,.
and which had been so heartily and har
moniously engaged in by the Christian
people of our city without regard to sect or
creed that one could not tell whether it
were conducted by the one or the other de
nominatlonr Much good is said to have
resulted from the meetings. We under
stand that ten were added to the Baptist
and about the same number to the Metho
dist Church, and several "back-sliders" (is
that the name Mr. Eaglh? I understand
you are a Methodist) reclaimed. Since
Eider Hurl but has gone we leurn that Rev.
Funston, of the M. E. Church, assisted by
Christian people of all churches, are going
right on with the meeting and with satis
factory result?. Zeke listened to Eider II.
several times while here, and liko Agrippu
(I guess il was) was constrained to
say, "Almost thou pursuadesl me
to be a Christian." There, did
I quote it right? If I did I think there
is some hope for poor Zeke
"thank Gd and take courage."
TVe hear that two prominent business
men of our city are lawing over seventeen
cans of mushrooms, the whole sum only
reaching a little more than $.'.
Oh, dear, what mushrooms they must
be. Come, come, now, just give the
mushrooms to Zeke, and contribute the
money you will spend in lawyers' fees and
costs to buy shoes, stockings, bread and
meat for the needy of our town. You'll
spend $20 each in a foolish wrangle over
nothing and yet Zeke doubts whether
either would contribute live dollars
for a trulj- charitable purpose.
Fie, fie, boys, quit such foolishness;
sensible people will laugh at you, and
when you are done you will both feel as
if you had been run over by a lame
donkey. Don"t play the mushroom any
longer, but act like sensible men.
I had forgotten to say that plans for ad
ditions to our city arc being made out.
Water works talk agitates the air and
street car lines, "alnm!" are talked of.
