A BAD MAN.
UL Russell" Shoots at V.
Appleby, His Employer.
'When I get mad, IStop not to Com
mit. Murder nor to Burn."
Last night a desperate and determined at
tempt at murder was made at tho corner of
North Main aud First.
V. E. Appleby, proprietor of the Wichita
Planing mills was returning with his wife
from the opera house, when they were met
on First street about fifty feet from the cor
ner by J. XI. Russell, one of Mr. Appleby's
employes. Mr. Appleby seeing the man
coming toward him and fearing danger,
dodged behind, the crowd of people and was
just running around the corner of Gandol
fo's cafe when Russell fired; the bullet, how
ever inflicted only a flenh wound.
Mr. Appleby then ran into the
cafe followed by tho desperate man
with tho revolver in his hand. Dr.
Longsdorf, Mr. King, of tho Lombard Mort
gage company, ana ..r. uuuun, 01 .b-uusus
City, were leaning against the cigar case and
between tho first two of these gentlemen Mr.
Appleby ran for safety. Russell walked
quickly to him, placed the revolver to his
eye and was endeavoring to pull the trigger
when his hand was knocked aside and the
bullet passed through the show case. The
revolver was wrenched from his hand by the
three gentlemen and he himself was taken in
charge by Councilman Pat Kealy, who was
passing when tho shooting took place. As
soon as he was arrested he exclaimed, "Gen
tleman, withhold your judgment: I had a
just cause for thooting at htm."
The injured man was then removed to his
home, Dr. McBurnio called, and the wound
dressed. Besides tho fle-.li wound upon his
body there is a large swelling over tho eye,
caused by the blow from the revolver. He
appealed, however, to consider himself most
fortunate in escaping as vellas he did. He
says that he had been out to Kingman din
ing the day, and when he returned home
Russell came up to his house, asking lor
money which ho claimed was duo htm. As
the settlement had been made by tho book
keeper, he asked Russell to wait until Mon
day and he vioulday him. One woid
brought on another, aud a little scuille took
placo in front of the house. Russell left,
tolling Mis. Appleby that ho would bo
revenged. "When I get mad I stop not
to commit murder nor burn." Mr. Appleby
said he did not fear tho man, yet "I knew
him to be desperate, and if ho had his mind
set on a thing he would do it."
Russell was handed by Mr. Healy over to
Officer Clark, who was soon at the scene of
the shooting, and taken by him to tho
As ho was locked up ho exclaimed, "A
young lifo ruined through a wrong trying
to get what he had earned." Ho appears to
be a smart intelligent man, but is recogniz
ed by his colaborers at tho planing mill as
determined and bulldogish. Ho has been in
tho employment of Mr. Appleby sinco the
first of April and was a very good work

Mamma "Why, my dear?"

angels would never find me. I nant to die

THE WRESTLING CONTEST.
Capt. Tom. Shields, of New York City,

at the opera house next Tuesday night. Capt.
Shields is six feet and three-fourths inches in
heighth, weighs .vheu stripped ono hundred

.five inches around the chest and looks verily
like a giant. He says he is in good wrestling
trim but will keep up exercise until the ap

was twenty years old, having won several
medals. At the ago of twenty he carno to
Canada and met Johnson, and won
over him in a wrestling tournament.
Later in the same Year ho aiet Rock and

nian games and won first and second prizes.
In '82 ho met Ross in Boston. They

'S3 threw Tom Cannon at Philadelphia.
In a tournament in Canada tho same year

In '84 he was matched with J. F. Keeting,

defeated him again last year. In a match
with Tom Cannon last year he de
feated him. He threw Crommoth five
times in twenty-seven minutes. Last sum
mer he threw Charles Moth, of Minneapolis.
One of the best matches of the summer was
with the famous Jap at Rochester, iu which
the latter was downed in fine st3"le.
The match booked for Tuesday night has
for some days been creating no little interest
in sporting circles. Tho Chicago champion
will be accompanied by a number of sport
ing men who aro his backers, and there will
be others from that city who havo easy
money for Capt. Shields. St. Louis, Kansas

city has an encouraging ring about it. The
people of tho city seem to enjoy the song of

This delightful opera was rehearsed at Col.
Stewarts last even by some twenty-five of the
local cast under tho instruction of Mr. Fred
Dixon, who unquestionably possesses a high
order of talent ia this particular line, and
under his management the most popular op
era of tho day will be given to our people in
a manner unsurpassod by any professional
troupe in tho large cities of the east. Just
stick a pin there.
Thcso who havo heard tho melodies in the
Mikado class them as inferior to those sang
in Robert McCairo; for instance tho "Whis
tling Song," "All for Glory A Soldier's
Life" and the "Lullaby' and "Good Night,"
soDg, as a lady expressed it, are just too
sweet for anything.
Manager Dixon promises a treat for Wich
ita not only in this opera, but in others that
aro to follow by professions.
It might be proper to state hero that the
proceeds of Robert McCairo are to bu devo
ted to the expense of putting in a stage aud
scenery in tho Garfield Opera house, and in
providing opera chairs for this popular re
sort. The object is commendable, and will
not bo lacking iu patronage.
Col. Stewart gave an elegant supper last
evening to the cast at the Haldwell house.
This was heartily enjoyed after the work
of ths evening.
Yesterday the band at the Museum was

Iven an eminently successful one, and yester
day was but a sample. The houso was crowd

greater number are promised bv the enter-

GARFIELD GOT THERE.
Also an Important Industry to be Opened Here
in the Spring.
Everybody knows how impossible the
brick makers of this city found it during the
past summer to suonlv the demand. Trains
were busy all summer delivering brick and
stone to Wichita contractors. The brick
came principally from Kansas City, St.
Louis, Carthage. Rich Hill and Ft. Scott, the
stone from the quarries in Butler and Cow
ley and Chase counties. The board of direc
tors of the Garfield University being now al
most ready for tho brick work concluded
that if the- waited until spring depending
on the local yards here that the chances
were tho work would be delayed throughout
the summer. Thus concluding a buyer was
sent out to Leavenworth, to Kansas City
and other points to inspect large stocks
in kiln. Yesterday Judge Campbell in
formed us that they had foaud two and - a
half million brides at Ft. Scott, belonging to
E. G. Lotterer, which were purchased at a
satisfactory price, together with ono hun
dred and twenty-live thonsand of outside
pressed bricks. Tho bricks will be delivered
this winter and as fast as wanted in the
spring upon the University grounds, so that
there will not be the slightest delay when the
great heavy walls commence to grow and
continue to grow until there shall stand re
vealed on the beautiful plain on the west side
a structure which shall command the
admiration of all. The Eagle congratu
lates the level headed men who had the fore
sight to see what was necessary, men who
have proved wonderfully adapted to tho
great business of building a monumental in-:
stitutiou which Garfield is to be.
In this connection comes another
piece of nows for Wichita. Mr. Lotterer,
who called yesterday, informs U3 that for
months he has been testing all the clays to be
found in tho vicinity of Wichita, going out
in different directions along the lines of rail
roads from 15 to 20 miles. Ho thinks he has
found a clav which will make a brick which
for color, smoothuess and compactness will
rival the best brick of the w est. Ho has
abundant capital and it is his intention to
open out with all the improved machinery
for brick making next spring. Ho says ho
will make one hundred thousand per day.
That will bo .something like, aud wo con
gratulate our contractors that they will not
bo compelled to go through the sweat to
which they were subjected last year.

AT THE G. A. R. HALL,
In the report of the very successful concert
of the choir of St. Johns chnrch as given at
G. A R. hall Friday evening, mention was
inadvertently omitted of several very pleas
ing features which added not a little to tho
success of the entertainment.
The vocal selection, "Amo," by Mattei,
was rendered most artistically by Mr. A. L.
Crawford. This is the first time Wichita
people have had the pleasure of listening to
Mr. Crawford in concert. He possesses a
beautiful high tenor voice, great compass
and breadth. His singing was delightful not
only for its sympathetic qualities but for his
true interpretation of a very high order of
music. ITpon a hearty recall Mr. Crawford
favored the audience with a selection from
Across the Far Bln3 Hills Marie, one of
Blumanthal's greatest songs, was sung by
Miss Hamblin. Such a song tests not only
thereal powers of a singer, but shows, if well
rendered, the artist much moro than any
operatic selection. It combines dramatic
force with true aud perfect enunciation. In
this Miss Hamblin proves herself equal to
every demand, and sang it as only na artist
can, with an intensity which reached the
hearts of alL
Mrs. Crawford's rendition of tha Mendels
sohn concerto merits the highest praise. We
have heard eminent artists who might envy
this lady her exquisite touch and superior
technique. Mrs. Crawford has received the
bes-t instruction from the foremost teachers
of Boston, and won richly deserves praise
for her masterly playing.
In the last few days over thirty lots have
been bought on Washington avenue, between
Sixteenth and Eighteenth streets. Tb-y

The Sedgwick County Teachers Associa
tion met at the high school building at 2 p.
m., president in tho chair. Tho meeting was
one of tho most successful over held in tho
county. This fact was very gratifying to
the hard working teachers and educators who
havo been doing all in their power to create
an interest iu tho work and mako tho associ
ation a success.
After singing "Ono Sweetly Solemn
Thought," the minutes of tho last meeting
wore read and approved.
Mr. Swaney's paper on "Tho Use of Text ,
Books by Teacher aud Pupil" was a good
production. Somo points were: Use books
as guides. Stimulate; not depress, the minds
of pupils. Allow pupils to uso other books .
than those used in school and think for them
selves. Mako education practical. Teachers ,
should make thorough preparation before ,
earning to recitations, and uso no text books
during recitation. This gives tho pupils con
fidence in tho teacher's scolarship aud inter
est. Narrow-minded teachers make narrow
minded pupils. Wo should do and bo what
we expect them to be. Understand princi
ple! aud uso text books for definitions. Do i
not teach many points at onco. Make text
books servants, not masters.
In discussion Mr. Moody, of Clearwater,
thought having no books during recitation
was ver' good m theory but weak in prac
tice. Tho next paper wa3 "How to Sacuro the
Co-operation of Parents" by Edith A. Weye
neth. Then followed "Literary Work in Schools;
how much, how secured," by Mr. Moody.
Tho value of literary work depends on their
character. No exercise not elevatiug should
bo tolerated. A twofold aim is reached by
proper literary exerci'-es. A development of
the mind, and a pleasant entertainment. It
develops confidence and self-possessiou in
the pupil. A half hour once in two weeks
is sufficient, but whatever tho plan tho
teacher should direct and control it. This
was discussed at some length by Mr. Sturde
vaut, Miss Hays, Messrs. Shull, Clearance,
Swaney and Prof. Chidester.
Miss Crowther gave a lesson in numbers,
flnvolnnin" the number 5 with a class of
