In another colu mi will be found a very

Hju. G. W. Clement, who-e faith m our

The Hon. R. E. Lawrence sold yesterday

Mr. M. F. Carr, who was lately connected

is at present stopping in this city, called yes
terday in company with Dr. Miuich.
M. B. Cohn, of Vv'tot Douglas avenue, is
doing a regular western wholesale business

company hauled from his establishment a
heavy txo horse load. This seems to bbut
a fair sample of i day's sale.

She has nor.- the start in population, loca
tion and wealth. Her daily and weekly pa
pers are not inferior to any in tho west.
They are devoted to her interests. Her citi
zens are loyal aud true. And while it is the
duty of all of them to neglect none of her
interests, to stand by her iu full faith,
every one should bj doubly assured of her
future upon reflection that Wichita's destiny
has from her incipieucy survived the assaults
of innumerable adversaries foes of no mean
order bent upon her distruction.

New York Herald: "The Black Hussar"
was produced last night at Wallack's Thea
tre. If one were to judge of the loud ap
plause v hich greeted the end of euch act,
then the piece was an immense succos. Col.
McCaull, as wo have frequently mentioned
here, has gained a t ell deserved reputation
for the sumpruous manner iu which ho has
put his operas on the stage. He has fully
justified his fame by last night's perform
ance. "The Black Hussar" was strongly
cast it was an evenly balanced company
and all worked smoothlyandhaimouiously
no ono rising in undue prominence. The
hause was packed, and we predict a long
and succetaful run for "The Black Hussar.'

on Friday last, called yesterday in company
with Mr. Joseph Morse,whohe says inveigled
him out to Wichita. Mr Carpenter says he

Tho lecture delivered last night in the hall
of tho Young Men's Christian Association
wasvell attended. Dr. Wilson's subject:
Physical Developemeut, was handled m a
masterly way, and many hints were given
on plrysicnl developeiueiit which if acted up
on will provo of inealeuable benefit to the
voting men. At the close a begirt y vote of
thanks was ten lered tho Doctor for his val

Undoubtedly Wichita w as, yesterday, the
liveliest city in the state for its size aud pop

Sunday night a young man with a big dog
was coming leisurely dovn Main street, aud
when between First and Douglas he was
stopped by a remark that struck him as not
being exactly nppi opriate. He halted and a
heated conversation took place. The dog
pitched in to take the part of the master
w hen he received a vigorous kick; this so
enraged the master that he struck the dog's
assailant. A lively fist tight was the result.
and at hist wheii the pugilists weresejxiraud i
both had badly bruised aud bleeding faces. '

The German Catholics of Wichita are
forming now a congregation of their own
under the care of Rev. John Loevenich.
They are at present looking around town to
picli out a suitable place for a German
church and school, which will be built as
soon as tho necessary grounds are obtained.
Until their new church is finished, the Ger
man Catholics will continue to use the pres
ent Catholic church in common with the
English speaking part of the congregation.
They will, however, hold their services at a
different hour aud in their own language.
Next New-Years day will be observed as a
holy day of obligation, that is, just like a
Sunday, by all the Catholics in tho whole
Tnited States. This has been tho case in
some states already before this time, but the
Catholic bishops assembled in a plenary
council at? Baltimore in November, 1SS4,
have made this obligatory for every state in
the union to commence with New-Years
day of 1SS7.
