1. Mitchell, of Topeka. Pi-licr. of Lawrence,
Kelly, of Emporia. Hartniin, of Kl lor.idn. Ll
der MrQui-toii, and two or three m!ni!ers of
the di-trict were present. The d ly being an
c.Mremelv pleasant one, the attendance vv.i-
large -o large, in fact, th.it quite p. iiiiiiiIh r
failed to gain admi-sion. Tlie iimrntrg mt-
monvras preached by Dr. MiU hell, on "1'lie
rise and progress of Cliri-1's kingdom on
earth," which wa- able and eloquent, and wa
listcncd to with marked attention. After the
sermon a financial statement wa- made- by .Mr.
Frakcr, showing that the societv had bought
lots, built a commodious par-onage and church,
finished and furnished the church with -eats,
ofas. chair-, c: rpets, chandeliers and bell
everything complete leaving them with an
outstanding it'debtedne of about sixteen
hundred dollar, which the congregation was
politely aked by Uev. Mr. Mitchell to Toot lip.
After raising six hundred dolliis. the meeting
was ili-iui ed to meet again at 2J o'clock, at
which time a grand Sunday -ehool ma meet
ing of all the schools in tlie city was hold, sing
ing and -liort spi-eches being the order of the
exTcis-, at the close of which all were in
vited to attend the services of tlie evening, to
be condiuted by Dr. Fiher. who preeihcd a
very able discourse on "The divinity of
Christ." W. B. Smith then made a statement
of what had been raised in the morning, show
ing that a thou-and dollars was jctto be raised
to clear them of debt. Mr. Kelly then took
the stand and. in his usual happy manner on
such occasion, made a few remarks which
were (minted and pithy, and In thirty minutes
time the thousand dollars was raised, ilearing
tlie church entirely of debt. Tlie house was
then dedicated to the worship of God. Great
credit Is tine the public generally for respond
ing so gencrouslv when called upon tor help in
this christian enterprise, and of three or four
we might make special mention, but our citi
zens know who they arc. Services will be

The nostotHce has been rcmov ed fi om its
old location on Main -trcct to the Laglc block
on Dougl is av enue. Hearing that some par
ties had stated that we were concerned in its
removal, we here state, for the benefit of all
such, that it is a mistake. We ncv er -poke to
the po-t-i aster with reference to the matter;
m fact, wc knew nothing of it certainly until
two days before its occurrence, at which time
the Hon. .1. It. Mead informed us that it would
in all probability be removed, and he was op
posed to its removal. Ol course there aru two
sides to the question; in all probability there
will be champions upon both shies, but as we
have often said, in local differences we cannot
take any part. What little interest m the way
of properly that wc have would be best con
served if the pn-tiiffiru was up about the Lin
pirc House, and il it should go there, or to
the old court house building, we should neith
er vv ork for or again-l it. Our idea of a post
office is that it should be located as centrally
as po-sible, compatible with silety and con
venience for business men. IVr-tms living
outside of town do not care what end of a
street the postoflicu i- on, or even what street.
Do our authorities know anv thing of the
condition of the three bridges that spun the
Chishohn cast ol town? They are very unsafe,
lottery, rotlen. without railing, ami all ready
to tumble. If these hiido'0s arc not soon
looked after the tounly, township or city will
have to pav in damage- three tiuie what new
bridges would tost. Three Hob-on truss
biidgcs, ot one sji in each, can be built across
Clii-holm at a v cry trilling t ost, bv lcav ing out
stone abutments. Drive down piles and nuke
the appro.ii he-ol tlirt filling. Such biidge
will la-t years, and the arc exceedingly ehtap.
The Little Arkansas river, the Xemie-cali and
Cow -kin will all have to he bridged, and we
-ugge-t that thev all be biidged in that way.
The bridges are just as good, while the last,
as those with stone abutim nts, while good oak
piles will last lrom ten to fifteen je.irs. Some
thing must be done about those Clii-holm
bridges right avvav.
We do really think that Wichita and the
surrounding country can boast more hand
some women than any other locality in the
state. This is a common boast of tiewpapcr
witli refcreiiie to their respective town-, but
the truth is, we have looked the matter square
ly in the face, without prejudice, ami unbiased,
and that is the solemn eoiuliisioii ariivedat.
And that is not all. The streets of Wichita
will, on any given pleasant alteinoon or Sun
day morning, show a greater number of fash

Plain Talk. Every intelligent American
citizen knows full well that advertising is sim
ply a gross humbug some men announcing
that they have the Iargist and best selected
stock of goods between the boundaries of the
Atlantic and Pacific oceans,offeringsuch fearful
bargains and sacrifices, troin which the novice
woultl infer that they were public benefactors
distributing charities ad libitum.
Sow. reader, can a merchant pay for his
goods, employ help, pay rent, pay for Ins liv
ing, clothes, incidentals, etc., bcidcs realizing,
as many do, great wealth, without profit, and
large profits at that? You answer, no, sir. Be
guided by your decision. Don't be duped by
thoe Hauling advertisement, for iow prices
look very well in print, and immense stocks on
a hand bill or circular dwindle into insignifi
cance on the shelves.
