Daily To be Increased "When Duild-'
' Ing is Conlpletcd.
Some montho ago Mr. George Kuisz.
St. Louis, who has spent twenty yeava in
the paint lousiness jind who was operating
a paint establishment in that city, decided
to make an observation of the west with
the intention of storting a plant farther
west, if the surroundings called for it. He
visited Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska,
and Denver. While they offered some in
ducements for such an enterprise, he was
not thoroughly satisfied to make a change.
Returning to St. Louis with the intention
of continuing. business there, near two
months ago 3Ir. Steinhaufcr, of Stein-hauser-Merkle
who "had heard of his
looking for a more suitable loca
tion, called on liim to talk Wichita
and Kansas. Mr. Krusz had heard con
siderable of this section, and was easilj-
mduced to give the matter an investiga
tion. On his. ay to Wichita he stopped
at Leavenworth and Topeka, taking in
their importance as manufacturing towns.
Reaching the city he made an iuvestiga-
tion lasting some days, and then took a
I trip down into the southwest and out
west. Returning lie decided to locate
here, and immediately work wsts com
menced in organizing a company. It was
not long until the Kansas Paint Manufac
turing company was organized, with a
capital stock of .S.")0,000. 31 r.
George R. Steiahouser is pres
ident, E. Steinhou-er vice-president,
II. II. Linze, secretary and treasurer; Geo.
Krusz. expeit and superintendent.
As soon as the organization was effected
Mr. Krusc returned to St. Louis, closed
out his business there and visiting Chi
cago and New York, purchased machinery
for the Wichita plant costing 20,000. No
time was lost in getting it here aud put
ting it in place.
For the piesent the machinery is in the
third floor of the Steinhauser-Merklebuild-
jng. V. ork was commenced last Tuesday
and the plant is turning out over twelve
hundred gallons of paint per day. The
establishment gives employment to
firteen hands. At present one
traveling man, Mr. Hamburg, is on
the road and two moie will be added on
first of next month. Theordeis from the
city have been especially encouraging,
while the trade in the southwest and west
has been even more than could be ex
pected Yesteiday's mail from Winfield
"and Caldwell brought good sized orders,
the result of seeing the price list of what
Wichita can do in the way of manufaetur
ing and wholesaling points. This is a
feature ouite enco'irnirinir to the cnmmtnv
and makes sure ( he improvement and in
crwise of cipacity decided upon souk'
weeks ago, pro, ided tiie business come up

that paints can be maniiiactuied as cheaply
here as in St. Louis. He had fignied on it
costing something more but happily found
he was mistaken.
The company will make perfectly pure
paints, ground inliuseed oil. lead and zinc,
muKing a beautiful finish and more dura
ble than lead In oil The machinery is of
the latest improved Mr. Krusz claims
that his ideas ot mixing paints are new
and best chemistry on the subject is fol
lowed. The company is electing on the sooth
side of the Steinhauser-Merkle building a
four stoiy brick with a front of fifty feet
and one hundred aud forty feet deep. The
building lias reached the second story and
when completed -will lieentiiely occupied
by the paint fact on.
The machinery will be run bj two twenty-five
horse power engines furnished with
steam by a sixty Iioim; power boiler. A
kiln and crusher will be added, and the
machinery of the plant will be increased
costing not L'ss than ."o,0iX). They will
then nnke all varieties of colors ;md
be the largest paint manufacturing
onipany west, of St. Louis if not
the largest west of Pittsburg, Pennsylva
nia. It is the only establishment of the
laim in uie tnie and the company is more
and more pleased every day with" the en
terprise. They are "daiiv filling good
ouiers in the city, one of the most impor
tant of which is orders for the Burton Car
Machinery has already been ordered for
the plant, to be p.it in the building now
lK'ing creeled. When work is commenced
with the increased capacity over fifty
hands will be employed. The company

of guests was large and the company elite,
the luncheon mot daintj', yet elaborate,
and the evening ranks the most en

very affable and entertaining hostess, and
her last luncheon fully sustains the popu

the guests weie presented with a novel
souvenir in the form of three chestnuts
on a twig. As seeral gentlemen of
the city have been known to
to disapprove the exclusion of tliee ladies'

Prof. Naylor then jnesented the practi

in common schools as a means of interest

his arguments by the history of numerous

and practical, and opened up new fields of
thought and inquiry to many teachers.

Prof. Fitzpatrick, so well known in onr '
county, next spoke in a very interesting
manner. He denied that teaching!
has yet arrived at the dig-'
nity of a science. The problem '
of life is before us all. and manv of us will
work it out successfully in as many difier

child is the prime element in successful !
teaching. "Executive ability i that abtl-1 " '
