Owens, Tony Sruhen and Lon Hoding. Owens de scribed a battlo in the highest tactical banner. He might take up the Bridge at Lodi, for instance and tell how General Bonaparte swung Company de Rochefort. -.rtiilery. No. 10. consisting of six ten ,ounders. five eight-pounders and four Bix-pounders, to tho right flank, General Lombard meeting this maneuver, with a charge of infantry, 10,000 armed with mus kets, threo rounds of ammunition, covering their advance by a flank movement of the right division. There was no powder, no blood, no cries, no wounded, no dead in Owens' descriptions. Nothing but move ments, guns and their calibres, advances and retreats and mathematics. Tony Bruhen's description of a battle deals with the generals over-looking the field. The French and tie Germans are fighting teeth and teeth, toe-nail and toe nail. On an eminence stands General Von Molkte. At a little way apart stand Bis marck and General Phil Sheridan, who was visiting Germany at the time. Inch by inch the French are driving the Ger mans back. Sheridan says: "Count, the French are pressing you." "I see." says Bismarck. "What do you suppose Von Molkto thinks about it?" asks Sheridan nrvouly. "I'll ask him." says Bismarck and forthwith rides over to Von Molkte and asks: "What do you think?" Von Molkte does not turn, but says: "Bismarck give me one of those good cigars." Bis marck hands over a oigar and goes back to Sheridan. Still with awful force the French come on, stubbornly beating the Germans back. Again Sheridan says: "Look Count. What does Von Molkte mean?" I'll go and ask him." says Bis marck, and again goes to Von Molkte and says: "What do you think. Von Molkte?" Von Molkte does not turn, but s.ays: "Bismarck, give me another cigar." Back, back crowd the Germans. Von Molkte" is shading his ayes. His form straightens. In the distance he sees the delayed Bavarian cuirassiers. Down they come, riding like death. Down they come horses and men, a raging, roaring torrent. They are at the French. The French waver, break, retreat! Von Molkte rides to where the German emperor stands, salutes and saya: Your majesty, the vic tory is youra." "I thank you," says the emperor. Lon Hoding tells of war In a different way. In his description there are mighty few guns and mighty few generals. It is the private Hoding thinks about, the private at either side and under his own coat. He is standing in a long line, so long that he can not seo either end. The Bun is shining brightly. It mocks him and he keeps his eyes on the ground. Away down the lino he hears a huzza, faintly, then stronger, Btronger, roaring to where he stands, and now past him. Ills hat In oft with the others, mochan- ically he shouts a General Joe Hooker, with his brandy nose a-shlnlng in the pun, rides by in the face of th6 enemy, his binoculars on the enemy, his hands held backward waving with his hat en couragement to the men, his aides fifty yards behind him, for the sharpshooters are picking at Hooker and tho bullets plunge directly behind him and the reti nue must not ride too close. And now an awful sound comes, a faint child-like cry, an echo, almost Inarticulate. Louder it grows, louder and nearer, and at last it is distinguishable. It Is "forward." Ho has started. Are the others with him? He knows not. He is marching march ing Into a hell of flame and smoke. There is a strange voice In tho air about his ears, in his hair, everywhere. It is the b-r-r-r of lead. Ho Ib marching. His gun Is gripped until his knuckles are white. He Is fighting. When did he fire first? He does not know. Ho docs not look to ryee. Ho Is firing. He is inarching. He Btop's mechanically. Hoarse Toioes tell him thai the day is theirs his! His sight re turns. All about him are the dead. The men who were at his either side are gone. He is leaning on the wheel of a cannon, n cannon with all its woodwork riddled, and its brass barrel dulled with pelting lead. And his eyes are open, and he sees men dead and others dying, plowing tho ground with their hoeJs in their last agony, all about him, wounded horses cry ing, men leaning on others covered with Wood, and he staggers from tho wheel and lifts his eyes to heaven where the sun of a bright Muy morning Is shining peacefully on all and he mutters: "War la helL" A PERSISTENT BIRD. An oxsiOTple of maternal devotion to in stinct, aa woH as steadfast, patient zeoi, has boen notod lately tn a caso of a mother bird, a sparrow, ax the Dold packing house. On the outside or what is known as the "shacklo-pcn" is a I reaght elevator t tr carrying up into the killing room all Vrips" ind "slow" hogs which cannot climb tho "cihuto" to their early doom. This otevafor is sot used all the time, in lot it te sometimes whole days that It is not required. In the pulley-block through wiiich play the heavy cables for hoisting rind lowering- the car, a sparrow has built a nest, in ifact many nests, for as fast as one is completed the machine is wanted, arid ks motion up always tears down arwl ruins tlio little home which tho intle CaUffRbie bird Ivas erected for her pros P motive offspring. All day, perhaps two dxy, 810 will patiently tod and labor, finally gaining he satisfaction of viewing in the result of her labors her nest com pleted. About Chat time a. crippled hog will require elevating, and awmy goce her xift. Then she begins all over again, only to Imve the seme unfortunate experience repeated. This- hppenl no one knows Vmv often, and etill she tolls, with a srrtm d:ersita&ton to locate that liule palace la no other spot. DR. PETRIE'S ANOESTER. The great srandfts-ther of Dr. Petri of th: city was ono of the caibinct officers of the tlrst NoJeoo. Hie name was Conrad Max'mUMcui, and he served as one of the cd vapory council of the "great Borvapaxte c' inns: most of the sKcring and critical 1 eri vte of Cbe master of Europe. He had bj(T htai in all his varying moods, in de feat and triumph, success ai humiliation. H wv3 a great admirer of the nleboan mon&rcfe. nd received from fcJm only kftntaass and ooTESicoratien. HE WAS CURED. M WaJls.ce, head buyer for the DoM Pa - company at the Union stock j ar .id Mr. H. C. Tilford, Inspector at the .eras botii enjoy a joke and both like to t ' .: ca each other. A few days ago the off c full of commission men. step per &" buyers fell to discussing- rhc qj.- .j i magnetic and curative powers of h-s especially endowed people. Mr. T -ford is very skepttotU on these matters, and to prove that : e possessed thete gifts IiimseJf, Mr. WaLoca took Mr. Tilford up siswaais&wisiaiatSBtoisKftmaTgKc SIP FOR HOME PEOPLE Sig5THSg5SgSg55-asia-aisia.,55 near a window and placing one of the lafcter's hands against the glass took tflie other in his own hand, and after some sort of wierd incantations asked his won dering subject If now he could not feel the pain. It vras several minutes before the dazed audience and Mr. Tilford realiz ed tiiat the word Mr. Wallace meant to convey was window "pane," and everyone .solemnly walked away and the discussion abruptly ended. WANTS TO BE A NURSE. A communication reaches the Eagle from the West Side that Miss Pink Cory of Indiana, who is visiting friends here, has volunteered as a nurse in the coming war. The communication says she will mjke a captivating nurse. That settles it. The government takes no women for nurses who are pretty. They mu-st be over 35 years of age. Miss Cory, however, is to be commended for her tender of ser vices. She has a letter from President McKiniey, but what it con-tains the com munication does not state. NEVER KNEW OF A CASH. Mr. George Adams says in his elgTvteen years' Jaw practice "he has never known of a case where a man was convicted of a felony that he over jumped his bond. THREE FAVORITES HERE. Fort Scott has turned out threo men all of whom are favorites In this city. First is Eugene Ware, for poetry: second, L. C. Boyle, for oratory, and third, Newt Ury, for etory telling. All three of them are A number one, and are always wel come here. WILL SOON BE OCCUPIED. The Sheets building, on the corner of Market and Douglas avenues, will soon bo finished, and It is understood will bo occupied Immediately, stocks already be ing put in. SHOW OF BONNETS. The churohes today will probatAy have a larger attendance than on any other Sunday for a year past. It would be un kind and uncharitable to tnifrgest that this was caused by tho desire of ladies and gentlemen desiring to show off their new spring outfits. WILL 'NEED AN AMBULANCE. When the Wichita hospital get into their new home, the old Martison block on the West Side, an effort will be made to induce tho city or the board of police commissioners to buy a first-class ambu lance. It is qui to necessary and Wichita, should have one. LADTES FREE TO BALL GAMES. Manager Alexander will soon issue an order that all ladies will be admitted freo to 'the ball games during the season. This will bo appreciated by the fair ones, as many of them (here are as well posted on the game as tne men. SCHOOL CHILDREN'S PRIZE. In 1893 the Wichita schools children took tho prize at the World's Fair for the best school work display. The blue ribbon and the certificate now hangs on the wall in Superintendent Dyer's office. SIGNED MANY BONDS. Mr. T. M. Lane says since he has lived in Wichita he thinks that he has gone on no less than 150 bonds. He says he is positive that his name has been attached to 100. 'He unquestionably has the record for Kansas. He never has lost a cent by having anyone to jumnius bond. BUYING PAINT FOR HOMES. A painter said the other day that one of the sure signs of prosperity v as when people began o fix up their homes and improve their lawns. He says that there has boon more money spent here this spring in point for residences than for ten years past. THE TACK NUISANCE. There is not n, town in the west that is bo universally disfigured as Wichita is with telephone, telegraph and electric rail way posts, with signs and pasters tacked and pasted. About once a week some traveling bill-poster comes along, hires a lot of boys, and proceeds to paint the town poles some cotor or other with tin or waterproof advertisements. One of the worst features of it is, in addition to the disfigurement of resident property, these signs are fastened on with tack", which are scattered along the curbing and side walk, point up. ready to enter a wheel. If tho wheelmen, boys and girls, wiH in stitute a war of extermination againrt the tacking up of these signs by promptly tearing them down when put on the poles in front of the residences thev will soon be rid of this nuisance. A new member of tho council con make a big and popular hit among the bicyclists of this city by seeing tthat an ordinance is drawn putting a stop to it. It is dono in other cities and con be dono here. Wheelmen will bo under everlasting obligations to him for it, as well as the people who want their premises to look nioe and inviting. WAS READY FOR THEM. The police commission made its hard est fiht on Genald Volk for the council. They had him considerably worked up by their opposition and he had prepared to publish a statement caling his candidacy hopeless, should ho bo defeated. Ho was elected by a majority oC 120, a ble; ma jority for that ward. GETS FEW PUNCTURES Mr. Aylc-sbury h(LS ridden a bicycle four years and has had four punctures, a punc ture a yaar. The average bicjcllst has about ten punctures a year. THE LONGEST FREIGHT TRAIN. V group of railroad men were recotvtly "discussing tho leisch of trams pulled someunvfes undsr emergency, and the haul ing powera and capacity of engines. The ditcusston brought up t2ie :n6taoce some years ag-o In which II. L. Ptere laicr secretary of tha board of trade, figured aa the cbieif actor. Mr. Pierce was then agent of the Santa Fe at Newton, and had be-n repeatedly told by the eupenwendeas to kep tho yards at Newton clear of empty cars. In spko of all ho could do, however, the empty freight cats would accumulate and nM up the sdinps invariably causing wraCh and repeated warnings from tho ! superintendent. On day tills fimoCtor.ary loomed up on the embaarassoi Oareat ua oxpecrecly. s& after taking a survey of the crowded yards warned Mr. Pierce fur the iast rhiw chai If he came back tn two days ajrwi found thvjj crs jammed is there the agency ax Newwn would tb-w and Aere bo vacant. The superior oSicia! had no "Xor got out of town than Mr. Pierce summoned the eng-.neec of Use pony yrd-ertae ol asked h.ai the capacity of liis engine. He fourJ it way snort of what-he wanted itfor. but as the skua- ttan, require! prompt autl heroic treatment rgiaiajyitfgteriirf'StiSlg a;aiafe,a;a;s ' ,tfgg,a05i8:afatefa;.asgiaia'.atea;:a?g!; he gave orders for the engineer to hitch on to every car in the yards and yank them down to Wichita. The veteran engine-driver only smiled scornfully at this, muttering something about the nerve and inexperience of the agent. Tne orders, nevertheless, were imperative.and the task was commenced. When, after hours of persistent efforts of the yard force, the long train stood on the main track in front of the depot to receive final running orders. To the dismay of the agent, he beheld 104 cars stretching away into the suburbs of the city. No conductor or crew could be induced to go out with the retinue, po Mr. Pierce sent the engineer alone. He wired for a clear track to Wichita, and the procession commenced one Saturday night. He waited patiently for word from Wichita saying the train had arrived, but in vain. Midnight came and went, and the hours dragged painfully along till daylight, and still no response from here, the outfit had not arrived or been heard from. Regular trains of im portance, including express and mail trains, had to be held at both Newton and Wichita, and confusion and dire distrac tion held sway. But the nervy agent had obeyed orders explicitly, and he only grimly smiled, even though the smile was haggard and wan. At last, a Htti after noon on Sunday, the caravan pulled slowly anV solemnly into this station and with the help of two more local yard engines was scattered over the yards, and for once the Newton sidings were f re from unused cars. The superintendent had been obeyed. LOCAL OPINIONS MTNCED. Joe Brubacher The Cuban war scare will serve fa a good politi-al disinfectant of the American public mind. Sam Amidon What Wichita needs most is an industrial school for girls. Ed Vail The chainless wheel Is slow, but it has come to stay. Will Church We will put in that new street railway. F. W. Swab Thre will be no war with Spain. Henry Huttman The Semon's Extrava ganza was the rottenest show that has been in Wiohita for ten years. O. A. Boyle There will be a thousand visitors here on the occasion of tho 'Messiah.' Mayor Ross There never has been a time since the boom when there was so much building improven ents in Wichita as now. Rufe Cone Stanley will be elected gov ernor. J. Giles Smith Leedy Is still governor, but his police board in Wichita has lost its grip. SUPT,. DOLAN'S DIVISION. On Superintendent F. T. Dolan's divi sion of the- Santa Fe there have been constructed in the last year 7,300 feet of Iron bridges to replace wooden ones. Other new bridges are now In course of construction, and limestone ballast is be ing put down very day. The business at Wichita ran about $230,000, Wellington $108,000, and Perry, O. T., $176,000. QUESTION OF MAJORITIES. J. Giles Smith, recently elected to the council from the Third ward, had a ma jority of 20 votes. The first 'time he ran ho had a majority "of only 4. This will make an Increase of 15 votes in four years." Figuring on the probabilities of a natural life-time, Mr. Smith arrives nt the conclusion 'that he will run for the council twenty terms more. What he wants to know is what his last majority will be A PATROLMAN'S ASSISTANT. Patrolman Ste-wart "has a big dog that makes the rounds of Mr. Stewart's beat at night as regularly as Mr. Stewart him self. Two or threo times during the night he will make the back doors of all tho business houses on the beat, and can tell in an instant when a door is unfastened. Not long ago this dog found a negro try ing to break into a North Main street place and gave the alarm. The negro tried to get away but was detained by the dog till Mr. Stewart arrived and put the burglar under arrest. STILL TAKING MRS. LEASE'S AD VICE. An Irishman who has watched the Eagle bulletin boards 6inoe the Cuban) difficulty walked into the crowd Thursday which surrounded the hoard and asked Dr. Schultz to tell htm the latest, as he had forgotten his glasses. "The Sagasta people, aided by the Pop ulists, are about) to riot in Madrid," said tho doctor. "Ah, Populists there, too, and a raisthin h 1 as usual. They ought to be trans planted to Ireland and put after the Brit ish governor." THOUGHT IT HAD COME. Tho greatest war excitement in Wichita the part week occurred at the Eaglo bul letin board Thursday. Reports all tndi- j caied war, Faying that Lca had left Ha vana and tSw family of Woodford had left Madrid. Discussion was. high. whsn suddenly a bicycle tir exploded wtth a snarp sound. The sidewnJk was cleared. OUTDOING HIS CAT. There is a man livrog in Wjchita wlio has been iJd out for dead twice. He Is now living, and a hat- hearty old mar Twice In ins life he hs been prepared for burial, and supposed byod anv question to be dead. The first time the cause of this strange phenomenon was a severe accident affect!:? tho spln and nerve centers- The e-NXT-d was tynhoKI fever. From both these approaches to the brink of the crave he recovered and lias lived many years since. STYLE IN SMOKE-STACKS. People who are observing may have no ticed that in the past fw years none of the bin- locomotives on th railroads have ( tue "pot boiled" smoke-stack that was once universal.

It is now down In the body of the engnie n front of the steam chest, and this accounts for the increased length of the machine. A cap filled with fine hole3 lies at the bottom of the stack and all cinders and sparks stop there, and before being expelled pass through a jet of steam and water. This simple device saves probably millions of dollars to the railway interests of the country every year. RELATED TO WILLIAM. Pat McKiniey, one of the oldest shippers to the Union Stock Yards was on the mar ket one day last week, and to r. group of the yards officials confessed that he was really a relative of the illustrious presi dent of United States. It must be so, for Pat, among many other admirable and praiseworthy traits. Is an Irishman and a Republican, a combination supposed to be impossible. In fact Pat has no little pride in this unusual situation. He tells with great gusto of a time when he lived in Ohio, when in his neighborhood were forty-two of his countrymen, all Democrats but he. No threat or entreaty would pre vail, and he once told a mob who had come to his house to whitecap him during the Cleveland and Blaine campaign, "I would rather be scourged the length and breadth of ould Ireland than to vote for spalpleen, Grover Cleveland." Like many of his people, he cordially hates Ireland and the English, and he justly reasons that Democracy and free trade help and enhance English interests. But as to his high born kindred. Without any cheap claims of distinction or unseemly b6ast Ing, he tells the simple tale which ex plains his relationship to the president. Three generations, the president's ances tors and Pat's were of one kin, and all devoutlyattached to their country and her independence from English rule. So great was their zeal, so bitter their hatred, and active their operations, that the charge of high treason was finally lajd to them. The grandfather of Pat found It conveni ent to take a long journey for his health, never to return. Three brothers of the president's family were placed under ar rest. One of them was hung, the other two, James and William affecting their escape. The president is the great grand son of the William McKiniey who was one of the brothers -who made their safe get-away, and whose name he bears. Both families came from the town of Darvock in County Antrim, about forty miles from Belfast. Pat came to this country In 1S73, and for twelve years has lived in Kansas, a successful farmer and stock grower. He is a character, possessing the native wit of his race, and good natured to a degre. WICHITA TEN YEARS AGO.
