THE POET'S CORNER
TO W. U. TCCEEB.
You plead for a "poet's corner"
Away on the iniido page;
You fondly imagine that corner
Could not fail of becoming the race.
Just listen a moment, I pray you,
A ftory I nith to relate,
How, veart ago, such n corner
Decided n poor poctV fate.
In joiith I Iocd a fair maiden,
Ax Mm know all trua potts will;
Kjt afa! I was dreadfully bashful.
At you know all poett aro still.
Mt ru-sien, I dur-t not dcclaro it,
So I vrota tome beautiful lines
Inscribed them to darling Jennio
l'or th3 "Weekly Yillago Times."
Enshrined in tbo "poet's cornor,"
I called on my lovo last night.
Sho said not a word of tho poem,
So 1 left the paper in tight;
I called again tho next evening:
O.those ttaczas.tlo mentioned them not,
Hut said, at f ho g.ve mo tbo paper,
"Here's something I guest you forgot.'
"1 left it for j oil my darling.
Did jou read iil""I earglj- crieJ.
O, horror! in accents to cruel
Those beautiful lips then replied:
O. did ou! Ho kind of jou, really;
In return pleaso accept my thanks.
I n-ad it all through excepting
That corner devoted to cranks."
I seized my list in a hurry
And found roy wav to tho door,
At I mentahy voueJ, in tbo lu'.uro
To wo my tweet charmer no more.
That wopirted then, and forever,
I've only tint corner to thank;
l'or bow could I summon up courage
To tk her to lnarrv a crank?

OUT OP THE KINK
The Matter In Controversy Settled, and tbe
Wichita ft CoIcmJo Pull Ont
A board,r an association of Wichita meiij
aftir months of work, may, by advene cir
cumstancrvind unforsem blundcrt.bavc been
weakened to a degrco harclv noticeable, and
to fev.1 that they had almost reached tbo end
of the string, bejond which their labors
would go unappreciated and count for
naught, but when backed by tho unanimout
tympatby and united work and efforts of tbe
businest men of tho cntiro city, u was the
cawi jestirday, no task too great could bo
set for their accomplishment It is to, alto
with a newspaper. "Work based solely on
faith, in the abeenco of sympathy and con
fidence, is discouraging to tho last degree.
while appreciation it a ttimulous equalling
inspiration. Tho Eagle's appeal of "ed
desaay morning may havo -teemed a little
strung, but ilia cxegencics cf tho caso war-
rant"d v en moro than was said. It was a
cri.is a rulminating point, which, to havo
disregarded would have wrought tuch disas
ter as yean might not havo made wholo.
Tho retponto that followed showed
that the enterprising among o-t business
men fully appreciated the situation in its
true light To them we most willing award
a full measure of praise. As for those who
live to fatten off the enterprise and labors of
others and who would not lift a finger or
offer a word of encouragement, neither thdr
praito or jticism can now avail anything.
If, and providing the agreements made
j cstcrday aro carried out in good faith to
day, wo are authorized to say that every
thing of i disagreeable nature will be for
gotten, and all tho original intentions and
proiniscj carried o Jt to tho IcttT. If, as wo
say, tbcro Is no further hitches in tho mat
tor and wo havo not tbo least doubt that
every ram will do as he has agreed, that
dirt will bo flying all along tho line by to
morrow's sunsrisc. And with no more
such mistakes tho lino will, as it pullt on
towards the letting tun gather strength and
magnitude with each mile, while "Wichita
will continue to sweep forward in her rapid
course as tbo coming commercial metropolis
of tho great central state.
W. K. AND L. t. ARL1SLE.
Wo acknowledge a very pleasant-call yes
terday from "W. K. Cailitlc, Esq , who, with
his family consisting of his wife and child,
havo come to make their homo in Wichita.
Air. C. was accompanied by L. K Carlisle,
Esq , a younger brother, both of whom aro
tho tons of tho honored speaker of the Na
tional house of rcprcsentavct, Those re-election
by the way it forgone conclusion. The
Messrs. C. who aro very pleasant and enter
taining gentlemen, liko their father-are, law
yers, fully imbued with tho progressive
spirit of tho times, and who, therefore, seek
a homo among tho mott enterprising peoplo
of this country. Tho elder brother informs
us that before locating he had visited many
young cities ot the west, coming direct from
Omaha to Wichita, but ho tayt, ho had
hardly taken his seal in a street cai at the
union depet before bis mind was mado up.
After spending a day or two ho went back
to his old Kentucky home got his wife and
baby and camo on immediately, accompa
nied by his younger brother. They havo
taken a home on uppor Topcka avenue, and
us soon as they can find office room will bo
ready for business. Airs. Carlisle it de
lighted with our city, country and climate.
The E igle w eleomes them, ono and nil,
with tbo expressed hopo that they may take
kindly to our brusquo western ways, and
that they may realize hero their fondest
hopes and ambitions.
i SURE WAY OUT.
As to tho Alvtinson difficulty tho Goroian
knot ns cnt by Capt Smyth, N. F. Nieder
landcr, 1'. V. Ilcjy and Mr. Anderson by
baying tho land outright last evening. In
congratulating the gentlemen for their en
terprise and thanking them tor their prompt
aclion, we must at tho samo time commend
their foresight Tho truth of the matter is
Martinson was not damaged to the amount
of a single penny, but only benefitted. To
pay him a good price for tho land taken was
all right, but to allow him damages all
wrong. How in tbo namo of common
tenso can a man's property be damaged by
adding a hundred thousand dollars to its
valiu;. If Mr. Alartinson had wanted bis
land for farming purposes or for any other
purpose under heaven than to make town
lots of it to sell on tho strength ot that very
railroad, there might havo been somo senso
in damages. We hope the gentlemen who
purchased it may make a cool hundred
thousand out or it and that Martinson may
live to see them rolling in wcilth realized
from that identical piece of land.
NAMES OF STREETS.
At a meeting of tbe city council a few
dajs ago a committee was appointed, con
sisting of Councilmen Kiche), English and
Stone to report a list of streets having names
alike within the city. The committee re
quested the city surveyor to furnish tho
names of such streets to tbo committee to
enable them to determino w bat action thev
will take in tho premises.
The list so far furnished tho committee is
here published. So fur tho committee has
not mado out a report designating tho names
they proposo to recommend, but at the next
meeting will suggest to the council tuch
names as they deem suitable foi confirma
tion. Tbe streets proposed to bo changed
from present names aro these:

Is to be completed within thirty days. Tho
sale of (own lots latt Saturday was quite
largely attended by parties from this p'ace,
also Wichita and other points. Lots sold
high, ranging from 75 lo ?180 each. The
prospects aro that Colwicb will boom for the

Mr. Irtughlin, an extensive stock man,
whoso ranch is on the Cimarron, in the In

the purpoo of selling COO head of cows. In
conversation with a representative of tbe
KiQLE he said that bo had heard that the
mabtary at Camp Russell, bad received or
ders from the interior department to round
up all tho cattlo in the territory and take
them out without notifying the cattlemen at
In answer to the question if the order to
remov o the cattlo had not been fully com
plied with, Mr. Laughlin laid: "Tbe terri
tory is full of cattle jet, and tbo soldiers
will find it a more difficult task to remove
them than the boomers."
Tberiglt of way is secured and tbe dirt
will begin to fly all along tbe Eagle lice.
Messrs. M. "W. Levy, George Steenrod and
A. W. Oliver came in last night from Union
and Sherman township;, where they had
been to cecuro the right of ay on tbe
Wichita & Colorado line. They brought
the deeds home in their pocket all the way
to tbe center of Sherman township. Thero
It now nothing ! tbo way and tbe work will
be pushed as fait as hands can do it.
Look at it! We mean the half page ad of
