Pait second consisted of original come
dies presented in a very amusing manner.
The first of these stnkiug presentations
was one of Stauley's discovpries in the
form of a dwarf elephant, which was fol
lowed by Dr. Schank's donkey robed in si
gaud' caparison and mounted by the
worthy Dr. Schanks himself. So great was
his obstinacy and "kickabilitv" that it
was impossible to lead him off from the
stage belore he had most cruelly lolded a
bystander un in one corner, whom he left
groaning with excruciating pain; but Dr.
bhanks was soon recalled to his rescue
accompanied by Dr. Hopkins, who finally
succeeded in amputating the poor suffer
er's limb in the presence of a few young
followers of E-culapius, who were the re- i
cipients of a profound medical discourse
from Dr. Hopkins. The audience was iu a
state of laughter almost continually from
the timo the curtain was raised until it
dropped. ToDsy. so originally imperson
ated by Miss Loye, would have defied the
attempts of Mrs. H. B. Stowe's Topy.
The burlesque opera singiug by Mrs.
Ewen was loudly applauded until she re
appeared and presented "Pretty as a
Picture." The soug by Mr. Hyde was
rendered in such a vivid manner that
some of the audience were more terrified
thau Macbeth when he saw the ghost of
Bauqno. A pleasant and sociable time is
tho comment of all who were there.

When the Ladies Social Literary societ3"
was organized two mouths ago, it had a
membership of five, exclusive of its offi
cers. This little band of five were how
ever active and staunch workers, nnd un
daunted by the face that some of the re
cruits,coutited on as sure of enlisting in
their ranks, when approached on the
subject with elevated noses, answered,
"No, I have not made up my mind to join
any society 'yet' " with strong emphasis
on the vet. Today, however, the society
has a membership of twenty, and some of
the ladies that declined at first to join, ate
now waiting with fear and trembling,
while the membership committee pass
upon their character aud social standing.
It is a "fad" to be literary, and not to
be a member of a literary society is some
times considered detrimental to one's so

. About three hundred and fifty years
ago Coronado pitched his tent in Kansas.
Prior to that it is believed that the foot
of a white man had not been the author
of any footprints to speak of -within her
borders. The early reddish Indian had,
up to that date, been the sole proprietor
of that country.
Coronado found a fat and friendly set
of Indians, quite a number of whom lie
married, in a cursory manner, after
which he went away from the place.
Ho formed the acquaintance at that time
of old Wideout, chief of the Cowbiters,
a very warlike and revengeful race.
Wideoufc weighed, it is estimated, 400
pounds, though not very tall, say live
feot four inches in height. So we may
classify him as tho widest red American,
aside from Noah Webster, of whom his
tory informs us.
Coronado, however, was not in search
of Indians or a homestead, or even rest
and change of scene, but he was looking
for gold at the time, being a cold, grasp
ing native such as flourished during the
luxurious Castilian days or under the
New Orleans dynasty.
CHEEF WIDEOUT A2D COP.OXADO.
Not finding any gold in the region of
Wichita, and town lots being far beyond
his reach, he retraced his steps. He
lived, however, to regret that he did not
secure property there and hold it for a
For some years the Wichita Indians
and the Osagcs occupied the most desir
able portions of Sedgwick county, and
tho buffalo with the foreshortened nar
rative walked the main streets of Wi
The first white man to settle in the
county was John Ross. He was followed
by his hired man, both being buried in
tho samo grave at the earnest solicita
tions of the Indians.
In 1863 Hon. James E. Mead estab
lished a trading pest on the site of Wich
ita and began killing tho buffalo in order
to clear off sufficient ground to start tho
new board of trade building. In three
weeks Mr. Mead killed G30 buffalo, and
saved S00 pelts in addition to his own.
He also saved 3,500 pounds of tallow,
which served to lubricate his boots all
William Mathewson, who, it is claimed,
is the original Buffalo Bill of tho fron
tier, then settled here. His wife was the
first white woman to come to Wichita.
The first official act of the county com
missioners was to issue a license for a
In 1870 D. S. Munger kept a hotel, was
postmaster, carried the mail in his hat,
and had time to do a general real estate
business, watch repairing, lunch at all
hours, saws set and filed, and also to fur
nish insurance and bulk oysters to one
and all. Now it requires thirteen letter
carriers to spread the mail.
In 1872 The Wichita Eagle broke its
shell, and with a shrill scream bought a
new hand press nnd began the opinion
molding business. The editor now oc
cupies a luxuriant office, with rich tapes
tries torn from the treasures of European
princes. He lolls back on a Turkish
divan in a beautiful suit of pajamas,
while silent eunnchs from the cast do
his bidding. On the walls are seen
costly paintings of Socrates, Plumb and
other prominent Kansas men. A group
picture consisting of Messrs. Ingalls and
Demosthenes hangs above the etruscan
fireplace. Costly works are seen on
every hand, and in rich bindings, side
by side, are the poems of Homer and
Thomas Browcr Peacock.
There also !
may be found the published speeches of
Cicero, tho Thomas OchDtreoof hi time, j

The next day the sign had been punctu

Most all the windows of the town were
also shot out as a mark of disrespect.
Finally a cowboy was secured red hand

Wichita is the largest city in Kansas,
but does not care to have anything said
about it. Electric street cars run clear
away out to the slaughter house and on
into the forest primeval, sc-that sports
men frequently go by street car into the
haunts of the pheasant and the bear. It
is not uncommon to see an eastern capi
talist returning at night, after a good
day's sport, with a dozen grouse aud two
good sized building lots.
Kansas is said to bo the most remark
able grain growing state. Her soil is
rich and black, her people full of hope
and good victuals. Com is low at the
present time, but thero is enough for
food and fuel for the winter, the crop
being unusually large. The man who
said that by the light of his burning corn
the Kansas farmer was enabled to read
tho mortgage on his farm was a pessi
mist with a tendency toward uxoricide
Out of the labor and anguish of war,
drouth and pestilence in Kansas was

borders dwell a proud, prosperous and
Corn grows to a great height, and so
do the pleasing anecdotes regarding tho
productive soil of Kansas. I saw an ear
of corn two feet long the other day, and
stalks of corn twenty feet high. Also

Kansas, is one of the most healthful
states in the union. People live so long
here that they got tired of life. The
death rate is only 8 to every 1 ,000 peo
ple, tho mortality being almost as low
as it is among French duelists.
Tho Arkansas Valley is now called
"the American Nile." All the rich allu
vial and such things as that havo been
borne down f'om tho eastern blopes of
tho Rocky mountains and spread over
this fertile plain. For six thousand
years it was a pasture for the buffalo,
the deer aud the antelope, and while
awaiting its destiny as a great agricul
tural hotbed, it has been watered by the
dews of heaven and enriched by ihc de
caying aristocracy of the Osngo and
Wichita Indians. Tho dust of preada
mito man, watered by the tears of the
more modern and renaissance grasshop

the granaries of the world aud stimu
lated tho bright eyed prevaricator to do
honor to his state.
Emporia is a more quiet city, with
fewer reading notices than Wichita, but
a thriving business and good prospecte.

At Lawrence I visited the university,
and wish especially to return thanks to
Professor Snow, of Bnow hall, for a de
lightful hour among his fossil bstrachiaar
and giant straddle bugs. He has a geod

ished at i early date and who made
footprints in tho sands of timo which
have been handed down to posterity in
tho limestone of our day. He ha the
lower jaw of a mammoth, with Woe
porcelain teeth, which lor laany years
stood in the middle of a small stream, &o
that when the water was kw the boys
used to stand on this monster's chin and

would be to the savant and the scholar
in future years. One day a sportacaan
stopped to spit on his bait, and glsncia
