'To tho gentleman who dropped us tha

limp market with a thud which would knock
the heart out of his mouth and the ducats

he would .soon forget his sneering card to the
editor of the Eagle. As for his lots, they
would be found iu tb.3 columns of the delin

For a good many years has the Eagle
claimed that Wichita would be the greatest
city in Kaunas. Not only that, but we have
steadfastly maintained that should Kansas
become as populous as the state of Illinois,
that thou the greatness or magnitude of
Wichita sis a commercial center would be
hard to estimate or measure, for tho more
populous the surrounding towns and the
more prosperous the surrounding country
then the greater Wichita's possibilities as a
city. We have gone farther,. and held to it,
that Wichita would be tis great as Kansas
City and it hasn't been but a week or fo
since r big paper in the northern part of the
state and another light here in this city
made fun of the idea would be as great as
Kansas City for exactly the same reasons
that account for Kansas City's greatness.
We still hold to those ideas just as determin
edly as ever, just as confidently save the
outside craze additions as ever, nor sneer
ing cards, nor skeptical newspapers.nor envi
ous contemporaries can cloud our faith or
discourage us in our work, but a tithe of
which work ever appears in or through the
Eagle. Therefore "let the galled jade winco

Some days ago a gentleman of this city
received a letter from one of the largest
hardware (inns west of the Alleghauies
stilting that the company had decided to es
tablish a wholesale house at this city. They
had come to the conclusion that Wichita
was necessarily tha distributing point for
the great southwest, and having arrived at
that conclusion they thought that the earlier
they got here the better their their advan
tage to control a large amount of the trade
in this section. The letter stated that tho
company was desirous of getting
hero as soon as possible and
for ti building. The wanted a very largo
building aud would like to occupy tho first
and second floors.
The letter was shown to a couplo of busi
ness men in the city who decided that they
could furnish the building desired. They
told the gentleman to writotiie company to
send a man with plans and specifications of
the building desired and if a contract could
be agreed upon the thing was "a go.'7 These
gentlemen say that they will put up the
highest and best building in the city. They
will locate it on Douglas avenue. It will
have a front of fifty feet, one hundred and
twenty-five feet deep and six stories high.
They claim the will make it six stories aud

"The latest progress in religious circles is

$1,2()0 per year, who devotes six days ot tho

Last evening the local homceopothists ten
dered a reception to tho. visiting physicans
and invited friends at Masonic hall. Near
two hundred people had as-embled by 8:30
o'clock. The time was pleasantly 'pent in
social conversation and making new ac
quaintances. The program as given in yes
terday's issue was rendered in a manner
highly creditable to U the participants.
The recitations by Miss Maud English were
received with cheers. The poem of Attorney
R. A. Haste is given below and was favorably
commented upon by all:
When one is asked to give a toast
He must not quail but go ahead
And, like a h-ro at his post,
Keep at it till his friends are dead,
Or lie a pale and wandering ghost.
The Ladies: If I should digress
You'll surely pardon the digression
When I am trying to express
My thoughts 'tis tiard lo find expression
Except my folly to confess.
Had I been asked for a rosponso
To "Little Pills" on this- occasion
I should have gone to work at once
Without a word of moral suasion
And written something for the nonce.
You see I have not had a chance
To gain a knowledge of "iho Ladies"
Mv knowledge I would oft enhance

The one who makes tno least auvaucc.
I think I gained some knowledge when
I was a boy of sweet eleven;
I lived at home w ith sisters then,
I think the number only seven,
But often seemed full more than ten.
The ladies sisters, mother-, wives
'Tis hard sometimes to get tho latter,
Some men keep trying all their lives,
Although I'm willing quite to flatter
Tho world of ouo this boon deprives.
Your patience I will not devote
Discussing woman's sphere and end;
Some 'think the lanies all should vote,
Although the ago seems thus to tend
I think tho time somewhat remote.
When still quit? young I couldn't see,
Governed well by seven sisters
Who daily took mo on their knee
And left me well endowed with blisters,
Whence came in the charity
Of allowing ladies so much space
On which to use authority.
I submitted to it then with grace,
But by a large majority
I thought the treatment realy base.
0 men, 0 brothers, let us fling
Ourselves a moment, from our thought,
Aud to the shriue of virtue bring
That homage due though all unsought
Hotnago our pride admonishing.
Oh, Woman, sisters, unto thee
All our ambitious are consigned:
Loved, honored, cherished shaltthou bo
For in thy angel face enshrined
Aro traces of divinity.
Your power o'er man's superior mind
Dwells in your continence antl trust;
The purer elements combined
To torni your nature surely must
Exert an' influence refined.
Superior did I say : ah, yes,
superior in a strength that fails
When tempters thickly round him press;
Superior in a mm I that quails
lJefore the world's cold hautiness.
Inferior in that God-like trait,
To suffer silent and alone;
Tho stern decrees of adverse fate,
Her heart is broken; but no moan
Her sacred love will desecrate.
Inferior in the power to bo
In sympaty with natures God,
Inferior iu the right to see
The justice of the chastening rod
Anil judge mankind with charity.
I hold it true that ho whose life
Is moulded by a woman's love,
Be she a mother, sister, wife,
Receives a strength as from above
To do any conquer iu the strife.
As is tho days of chivalry,
I'll pledge my brothers to this toast,
"Tho laditss." cherished let them be.
And he who honors them the most
Is knighted with nobility.
Tho music was certainly one of tho inter
esting features of the occasion aud the Silver
Strings Mandolin club came iu for their
share of applause.
Near 11 s'clock the entire party repaired
to the notel Gandolfo. where an extensive
collation was served. It is needless to say
that the doctors were iu their element on
reaching this part of the program

the parquetto by ladies aud gentlemen, while
the ubiquitous small boy aud tho peanut
fiend failed to show up. Tho crowd was quite
large and filled the house with the excopuou
of several of the front rows of seats. When
the curtain went up a little murmur, of ex
pectancy agitated tho people, and when
Miss Moore first appeared she presented a
vision so fair that a little involuntary buret
of applause greeted her. She is a blonde of
the most pronounced type, and is possess!
of regular features, aud a dazzling tair com
plexion. Her arms and neck are plump and
rounded, her hands shapely ami her figure
perfect, all of which personal charms so ma
terially aid an actress iu the struggle for
fame and success Her acting throughout
was free from affection, aud iu tho trying
scones was characterized by a degree of
strength which was not promised by hc-r ex
quisite lenperness iu tho balcony scene.

Tho lectures of Major Henry C. Dane for
tho past four years in tho Unity Club Course
in this city, have made an epoch. He has
steadily gained in favor aud each year has
drawn fresh additions, while holding on to
all his old friends. I hope ho may be heard,
not only in the Unity Club lectures, but iu
those prospective courses of evening lectures
in this city which are possibilities in tho
near future. I know ho cau always hereafter
command large audiences iu Cincinnati.
Wo have had his "Up the Rhine ami Over
the Alps with a Knapsack." "Great Naval
Battles of the Rebellion,"' "Summer in
Greece," and "Constantinople, Queen of
Levant," each delivered to largo and enthu
siastic audiences each putting fresh
thoughts into our minds in an indelible
manner, so that the thoughts remain. The
'Great Naval Battles" is the most wonder
ful lecture I have ever heard; his "Summer
m Greece" and "Constantinople" stands
very closely behind them.

Senator E. Southworth, of Iho Fortieth
district, Illinois, whose homo is at Litchfield,
made us a pleasant call yesterday. Senator
Southworth was an original property owner
in Minneapolis and being familiar with the
wonderful history of that city he says that
ho must acknowledge that Wichita beats
them ail in rapid development, growth and
prospects. Tha senator is a Democrat but
thought he might venture to call on as lively
and liberal a Republican paper, as the
Eagle. He called in company with Dr.
Tilden, who is an old friend of the senator.
