SWIMMIXG- pool is
now in season. In
this age of enlight
enment it is not nec
essary to impress
upon people the im
portance of frequent
bathing for the sake
of cleaniiness for it
is everywhere ac
knowledged that
"cleanliness is next
to Godliness" hut
there are many ben
efits to be derived
from it that are
not so well under
stood. There can
be no better exercise
. than swimming and
. in this pastime mus
cles are brought in
to play that will

- in any other way.
h U . iuiiuiuy, uccii-
''V, yllf ing directly on the
crtf " subject of swim-
r&xs uay -srs ming baths is from
Jenness Miller's Magazine:
"Frequent bathing and physical exercise
are absolutely imperative if wo are to get
the best results of brain and body, and we
are thinking more about these rational
methods of caring for our bodies, and I
believe that a few years hence the patron
age of the baths and gymnasiums will
become so much a matter of course that
the man or woman who ignores their ben
efit will be regarded as a fit subject for
missionary work."
Mr. Joseph Koenig, the proprietor of the
Natatorium. is a practical teacher of phys
ical training and has fitted the place up in
the most elegant manner possible which is
just entering on its second successful year.
The building is opposite the Crawford
Grand on Topeka avenue having a front
ago of fifty feet and a depth of 140. It is
built of brick and stone and is two stories
high with a basement under the front por
tion. The entrance from the street is quite
imposing and the interior is in perfect
keeping with the exterior. The upstairs
is devoted to the gymnasium and is thor
oughly uquipped having everything neces
sary or ever found in a first-class gymnas
ium. Mr. Koenig has a large class at pres
ent that he lias had in training for the
past j ear which does credit to his teach
ing. A spectators gallery occupies ono
end of the irymnasium.
The gymnastic instructions embrace the
regular school calisthenics, as taught in
the public schools of Denver, Kansas City,
Milwaukee, Chicago. Cleveland and oth
ers. Tactics wand, clnb, dumb bell exer
cises, gymuastic games, evercises in walk
ing, running, jumping, hopping; and also
for the higher classes exercises on the ap
paratus as pulleys, ladders, round swing,
rings, parallel bars, horizontal bars, horse,
boxing and fencing.
The discipline in the classes below 18
years of ago will be as strict as in ordi
nary schools, and regular attendance will
bo demanded; and at the end of four
months' course regular reports of the de
portment, attendance and progress of each
scholar Avill bo made to their parents.
The lower story is devoted to the offices,
bath rooms and the swimming pooL The
dressing rooms are ranged along either
side as usual and the pool is sixty feet
square. It is four feet at the west end and
gradually deepens until it is beyond one's
depth. The pool and margins tire cemented
as usual. Mr. Koenig or his assistant is
always present to seo that no accident
takes place. There are spring boards,
swinging ropes, toboggan slides and otlier
queer ways of getting the full benefit and
enjoyment of the plunge.
The water in the pool is guaranteed to
be renewed every day and kept at a tem
perature of S0 Fahrenheit.
Every Natatorium bathing suit and
towel will be washed and steamed after
each use.
Every bather is required to take a thor-
ough wash in the shower baths before he
is allowed to enter the swimming pool.
Every bather may have his own brushes
and bathing suit, etc which will be kept
separate for his own exclusive use.
The shower baths are private and have
hot and cold water. A new one has been

p. m. Tuesday's and Friday's from 9 a.

pool with the ladies will make it necessary
for him to extend their hours. Another

season he intends to build an addition
which will be exclusively for ladies and
open all hours.
For clubs of reputable gents and ladies
the Natatorium may be chartered after 9
p. m. The water is being constantly
changed and thus always kept clear and
pure. One can stand on the edge and see
the cemented bottom at any part of it.
The water is supplied by three drive wells
which are sunk over thirty feet and it is
pumped by a steamp pump which is kept
in constant action. The water as it comes
from the wells is naturally very cold and
is perfect drinking water, but before it goes
to the pool it is circulated through a
coil and heated to the proper temperature.
In addition to the change that is constant
ly taking place in the pool by the continu
ous addition of fresh water it is completely
emptied and scrubbed every night.
Mr. Koenig has spared neither pains or
expense to make his place attractive and
every convenience and comfort is added.
Practical lessons in swimming and no
one will pretend to deny the importance of
learning to swim. One may not often find
it absolutely necessary to know how to
swim, but like the Texan's revolver,
wanted only once in a lifetime but wanted
awful bad just then. On ladies' day a com
petent matron is in charge to assist Mr.
Koenig and the swimming bath is more
popular with the ladies than with the
men. The matron says the ladies gain
confidence in the water very quickly. They
first sit down and dip their toes in where
they know it is shoal. They soon take
more interest in the matter and
only a few minutes will find the
most timid in the midst of the pool.
They then try to swim and the matron
says she has yet to see the first failure.
They swim naturally, simply because they
only try to keep their heads above water.
When a man, who is a novice, gets in the
pool he usually wants to swim with the
major portion of his body above the sur
face and thinks that in any event his feet
should be higher than his head.
Yesterday was children's day that is to
say that on Thursdays the children are
admitted at reduced rates, and hundreds
of them take advantage of this. Prof.
Koenig has no trouble to teach children to
swim, for as soon as their first scare of the
water is past they take to it as naturally
as a duck does. The little fellows have
great fun on the toboggan slide and think
nothing of turning a summersault from a
spring board. Some one is always watch
ing the pool to see that the older ones do
not in any way impose on the younger ones
or that no accidents happen.
The hundred delightful sensations that
are experienced by a plunge in clear, cold
water can only be comprehended by those
who have tried it and every one of those
sensations is a preventive panacea for all
the ills that flesh is heir to. Every plunge
adds a year of comfort and health to your
At the Council the class in physical
culture, with a few select friends, were
given an intellectual treat. Through the
kindness of Miss Helen Potter a dramatic
recital was arranged, which gave an ap
preciative audience an opportunity to en
joy the wonderful histrionic powers of
this gifted lady. Owing to the extreme
warm weather Miss Potter would not al
low her friends to make any effort to dis
pose of tickets, preferring rather the
exquisite sense of a few listeners en rap
port than a crowded house of non-sympathetic
critics. Tho eloquent reader seemed
fairly lifted out of herself, at time thrill
ing her hearers with lofty aspiration, or
convulsing them with merriment at
numerous delineation, or racking the
heart with the tragic woes of Cornelia.
Miss Potter's impersonation of Susan
B. Anthony was positively startling in its
The recital closed a series of culture
lessons which the friends of Miss Potter
will ever remember gratefully.
Yesterday a minister of the gospel from
Wiufield reported to Agent Aspey that a
white girl from that city was in Wichita
and mixing with the colored people in a
way that did not seem to be quite proper.
Mr. Aspey found her, from his description,
just embarking on a colored picnic and
took her in charge and will send her home
today. She gave the name of Jennie Staf
ford, and said she was 15 years of age. It
seems that some time back she was the
victim of a man named Long, who is serv
ing fifteen years in the penitentiary for
the offense. According to her own story,
she has a half sister residing in Wichita
who wrote to her and invited her to visit
here for the summer. Upon her arrival
here she found out for the first time that
her half sister was married to a colored
man, but concluded to share their hospi
tality. Mr. Aspey did not think her sur
roundings were just what they ought to be
and will send her to her parents today.
Mr. R. F. Wilson contractor for the
jasperito paving on Douglas avenue, has
just returned from a trip to Sioux Falls,
Dakota, looking after the jasper for tho
paving. The crushing has been going on
at the rate of seven cars in two days and
with the exception of one break down no
delay. Tho trouble experienced is in the
shipments. So far but one car received
since tho 13th instant and there are twenty-eight
on the way and the one reaching
hero put in an appearance yesterday.
Tracers have been sent out and he claims
to be doing everything iu his power to get
the cars here to continue the work. From
information received yesterday it is under
stood that some cars will arrive this
morning and the work will be resumed.
The cars will be given over to the trans
portation companies as rapidly as possible
and it is thought no more delay will be
forced from lack of material.
There will be a few choice seats for the
Talmage lecture on sale at tho opera house
this evening. These tickets were held
back to fill some out of town orders, but as
parties have not called for them, the com
mittee have placed them on sale as stated.
There will not be nearly enouch to go
around, and "first come first served." Those
v ho have been disappointed in securing
seats in tho lower part, of the house, need
not hesitate to take tickets for the gallery,
as many of our best, citizens will be com
pelled to take these seats or miss the
chance to hear Dr. Talmage. The ventila

The Wichita & Western will join the
greac Santa Fe and Frisco combination
promptly July L Those employed at
present will be given employment with
the Santa Fe if so desired in departments
in which they are best suited.
There is some anxiety manifested in
finding out whether or not the Wichita &
Western will be extended to Dodge City
according to the request made some days
ago. It is believed by those most inter
ested that the extension will be made
some time this year and the advantages to
be derived will be of great importance to
the country interested.
A member of the finance committee of
the council stated yesterday that it was
high time that the levy was made out for
next year's taxes. The matter some time
ago had been referred to as, the council
and the various committees having charge
of matters requiring money were requested
to present an estimate of the amount they
would need next year. When all the com
mittees had reported the total would give
the levy for the city's expenses next year.
While the levy so far for funds to run the
city government had been low, much
lower than any other town or city in the
state he was afraid the jump this year
might be just a little startling. He did
not think it would be alarming but just a
little startling. With the increase result
ing from extensive bond sales and the
like he did not think the total would come
up to any city in the west of the enterprise
of Wichita. In the face of bonds to the
tune of several hundred thousand dollars
added within the last year he thought the
individual departments should cut down
expenses. With all kinds of lights being
increased at every council meeting to fix
up some fellow for future use the expense
in that department could not be reduced
to any alarming extent but there
would be an alarm on the other side and
would no doubt be continually increased
in the nature of men but not always from
demand. The new hydrant called for
often and in fact by numbers, in his judg
ment, would require more money for the
next year. The increase would be $50
multiplied by a big number. Then in ad
dition to the various departments sepa
rately expending more money it would
take, in his judgment, a little increase on
general principles. The total would be a
It is thought the various departments
will have estimates ready by the next
meeting, when the total amounts will be
known and the matter settled. The school
board will decide the levy question for
that department at the first meeting in
Some of the census enumerators were
swapping stories yesterday and each de
clared to be simply reporting actual ex
periences. C. H. Reed went into a shanty and a big,
stout man who seemed to live there most
of the time caught a glimpse of him and
immediately hustled out the back door.
Reed took after him, cornered him in the
back yaid and wanted to know his name,
having prefaced the question with a re
mark intended to assure him that he would
not be hurt. The fellow recovering
somewhat said ho did not want
to give his name for he did not
want to pay poll tax. Reed explained that
the poll tax was a chestnut and he would
not be called upon for any 3, but tho fel
low would not believe it and thought to
act smart by giving him another name.
All the questions being answered Reed
secured the right name from a neighbor.
The fellow found it out two or three days
later and tackled him on the street, threat
ening to smash him in tho event he was
called upon for his poll tax.
Charles Case found one woman with a
family of a half dozen around her, who
did not want fo answer the ques
tions as she was afraid of the
compulsory education law. She was sure
if it was found out she had children around
her the authorities would make them go to
school. She did not believe in education
and she was not going to give any one any
chance to get the best of her in that
Webking, called on a small family, apart
of which consisted of ten children, the
youngest apparently 1 year old and the
oldest about 10 years. The robust boss,
who estimated the husband as only an
amendment to the original motion, was
quite sure she was being called upon
by too many fellows with big books. Sho
never had answered their foolish questions
and never intended to and she did not.
The intimidated husband watched his
chance to get in a word on the sly aud as
sured Webking he would meet him in the
next block and did so. According to the
latest information the boss thinks she
give Uncle Sam's man a bluff that will
last him even more than ten years and the
next one that comes won't come.
About 200 names were reported to tho
board of trade yesterday and were given
over to tho enumerators to .look after.
Receiving their lists they go out, secure
the necessary information and add it to
their report. The good work will continue
it is hoped until a reasonably correct re
port is made out.
The Woman's Relief Corps gave a social
last night at Light Infantry Armory which

A very interesting program was also ren
dered in addition to the eatables.
Miss Anna Boyd recited "TheJiner,"
being a narrative of a young married man
who joined everything. His wife stood it
all until he wanted to join tho select
knights, and there she drev the line. He
came homo from his initiation in such a
pitiable plight that his grand mother could
not recognize him.
Miss Mary McCollougb recited "Asleep
at the Switch" in a very pleasing manner.
Miss Ona Boyd recited "How Persim
mons Took Care of the Baby" while his
wife went to the E. S. A. and discussed
woman suffrage.
Miss Virgie Little closed the program
with '"Laska," which,met with hearty ap

Hon. Wm. Greiffenstein arrived in the
city last night from the Pottowatomie
reservation and reports that the Indians
of that tribe signed the proposition made
them by the government through the com
mission. Mr. Greiffenstein will return
again in a few days and will lend his in
fluence with tho Indians to the commis
sion. Mr. Navarre and his attorney were
present and did all in their power to frus
trate the aims of the commission. They
both left as soon as thedeal was closed and
probably went to the Kaws in the hope of
working up a protest in that tribe which
will secure them their fees. The Indians
having signed the agreement on their own
account they filed a protest with the secre
tary of the interior against the payment of
any money as fees to Navarre or his
The amount the Indians are to receive
from the government outside of their al
lotments is $100,000. Mr. Greiffenstein
said he believed one band of Shawnees had
signed and that the others would follow
suit directly.

parents want to prosecute, it will go hard
with them. The Humane society has not
taken any action in tho matter yet. The

of that period in a condition of inde

In all that goes to make a nation great

wealth and credit and national honor we
are at the very front, abreast with the

In 1660, after fourteen years of a rev
enue tariff, just the kind of a tariff that
our political adversaries are advocating
today, the business of the country was
prostrated, agriculture was deplorably
drepressed, manufacturing waa on the

neither, as tho legacy of the Democratic
revenue tariff. Wo have both now. Wo
have a surplus revenue and a spotless
credit. I need not state what is k fresh
in our minds, so recent in our history, aa
to bo known to every gentleman who
hears me, that from the inauguration of
tho Protective Tariff laws of 1861 the
old Morrill tariff, which has brought to
that veteran statesman the highest honor
and will give to hitn bis proudest monu
ment thi3 condition changed. Confi
dence was restored, courage waa inspired,
the government started upon a progress
ive era under a system thoroughly Amer
ican. With a great war oil our hands, with
an army to enlist and prepare for ser
vice, with untold millions of money to
gupply, the protective tariff never failed
us in a single emergency, and while
money waa flowing into our treasury to
Eavo the government, industries were
springing up all over the land the f oxa
daticn and corner stone of our prosper
ity and glory.
With a debt cf over $2,800,000,000
when the war terminated, holding on. to
the protective laws, against Democratic
opposition, wo haT reduced that debt
at an average rate of more than $82,000,
000 each year, $174,000 every twenty
four hours for the last twenty-five years,
and what looked to bo a burden almost
impossible to bear has been removed
under the Republican fiscal system until
now it is $1,020,000,000, and with the
payment of this vast sazn of money the
nation has not been impoverished. The
individual citi2en has not been bcrdened
nor bankrupted. National and individ
ual prosperity has gone steadily on un
til our wealth is so great as to te almost
incomprehensblo when put into figures.
