It will doubtless prove a lucrative scheme. 1'poii Ihe arrival in this city on Fri day of last week, of a freight train from the east, a cry of distress was heard pro. i-eciling from a lumber car, and upon oieniiig it a small Isiy was discovered with his hand jammed in lielwccn the boards and the car in such a manne that it became necessary to use an ax to release the poor lad from his painful position. Ho was from Kansas City, and after bis wounds were properly cared for he was put ou the train and sent back te that place. A painful scene occurred nt the court house Wednesday when the sheriff and his attendants endeavored to put the handcuffs ou John Hess, preparatory to taking him to Ossawatomie. It took the united efforts of half a doen men to accomplish the unpleasant task, so vio. lenity did the uulortunnln man resist Ihe operation. Hess has not eaten or drank anything for three days, and it seems he has conceived the purpose of starving himself to death. His nlx rnition is the result of physical derangement. At Ihe meeting of Ihe directors of the Athencum on Saturday evening, it was determined to offer the lmoks belonging to-tin; public library to the board of ed ucation, provided the latter would as siime the indebtedness, amounting to alsml f l.'iO, and provide a place where members of the organization may ob tain books. In the event of such a con summation, the Athencum will no long er exist as a public or free reading room, though memliers will be entitled to take out Issiks as heretofore. The question of its future will probably be settled at the Isiard meeting this evening. bility morning and evening. About one hundred and fifty peraons partook ot the sacninent of the Lord's supper in the morning. Pinafore . The rendition of the above named operetta, by the Chicago Church Choir, In this city Monday night, was one of the very best pertormance ever given iu Emporia, and while we cannot censure our people for protesting against the ex travagant price of admission, we deeply regret that so many of them missed thi truly great treat. Every feature of the entertainment was eo thoroughly good, that to accord any special measure of praise to the more prominent characters would be to do injustice to the humblest member of the c hoi us, which was com. posed of voices the like of which were ertainly never heard in Emporia. The tenor of Ralph Rackstraw was among the finest we have ever beard, while the soprano of Josephine was beautifully clear, sweet and powerful. The company is the best on the road in this operetta, and had their prices been lower, the house would have been packed. School Board Meeting. A meeting of the board of education was held at the office of Superintendent Davis last evening when the following business was transacted: The matter of arranging for the clos ing exercises ot the school at the end of the term was referred to the committee ou finance aud taxation. The question of the disposition of the public libriry was refered to a special committee consisting of Messrs. Tandy, Baruett and Kellogg. A numU-rof bills were allowed, after which the board adjourned to the oOice of Nichols & Squires,- to consider the plans and specifications for the new school house. After some time spent on different comments and suggestions, the architects were given a week to pre pare their final plans and specifications, which will be accepted at the next meet ing of the board. Posti-onkukst. The ladies of the First Presbyterian Church, having an nounced a strawlicrry festival for next Friday evening at Bancroft hall and finding that Ihe ladies of the Methodist church have announced one for the same eveniug, to avoid a coiillii f, ol interests, have decided to postpone their entertain ment until Tuesday evening, June 1st, when they will lie happy to s-e all their friends, and serve them with the choicest berries and cream ut the church. The proceed are to lie used in renovating and decorating the walls of the church. "COMMITTRK." Our Water Works. The first stream of water from the famous supply well was thrown over the Emporia National Bauk last Satur day evening, amid the shouts of quite an assemblage of citizens who had gathered to witness this important event. The pumps and engine worked charmingly after the reuioval of a few little hitches which are inevitable in the operation of any new works ol aucu magnitude, and early tiiis morning all the eight. six and four un.li pipes were filled, the effect on the well being to lower it three and a half feet. The test on Saturday was inaile at only nan pressure, and the fire stream which .was thrown over the bank did not percept! bly diminish the supply of water in the well, which is thought to be quite sulll cient for all ordinary purposes, the full test proposed is to put onto the plugs two one and a quarter inch noz zles, and let them run as long as the well will supply them, which will fully test its capacity for lire supply. The machinery, the pipes and the workmanship throughout are of the very best quality, and fully sustain the excel lent reputation of the' contractors, Messrs. Russell fc Alexander, the latter gentleman having given the work his persons! supervison and faithfully fulfil led his obligations to the city in every regard. Further tests of the well will be made quite soon and the water works will soon lie available for use by our anxious citizens. A l'hllunthrople Enterprise The News was favored with a call this morniug from Mr. J. O. Dougherty, of Ottawa, who, during his brief visit to our city, made some preliminary ar rangements lor the disposition of fifty boys ranging in age from eight to fifteen years, who will arrive in Emporia on the IStb of June, under the care of J. B. Brace, to seek homes in Lyon county. This method of disposing of the friend less boys of New York City, has been prosecuted quite siiccessfuly under the la-ncvolent auspices of Whitelaw Reed, editor of the New York Tribune, and Mr. Brace has already placed a large uumlier of them in Kansas, Bur lington taking care of forty, Ottawa, eighty, and Parsons and Ft. Scott over a hundred. Mr. Dougherty informs us ihat the party selected tor Emporia are picked boys, and are much above the average of those sent out from the crowded metropolis. He has enlisted the sym pathy and cooperation of Rev. Dr. Cord ley and others in the undertaking, and we earnestly trust that enough inter est will be taken in this matter to pro- ide homes for these orphans where they mav be reared under wholesome inflll- uces, and thus liecome useful citizens. It may be argued, and not without much reason, that Kansas lias about all sue is able to take care of, but there are many families throughout the county who could take care of an addi ional member without serious inconvcu- Peraonal Mention.

The Races. The Emporia meeting of the South western Kansas Trotting Circuit closed ou Thursday afternoon, after a continu ance of three days, during which some of the best horses took part in. the sport that were ever seen on the Emporia turf. marriage ceremony of the -young The following is a compiled summary of couple.wbose arrival at the house of wor ship was awaited with almost breathless interest, and pending which the assembly feasted its admiring gaze upon the lovely floral decorations which transformed the audience room into a scene of rare beauty. Over the pulpit elevation ap peared the auspicious horse shoe of ever greens and flowers, inside of which was the monogram, "K. SV exquisitely wrought in scarlet and white exotics. A magnificent wedding bell was sus pended over the altar place, and on ei ther side of the chancel were immense boquets supported by statuettes, which added greatly to the artistic eflect of the general arrangements. At about half past eight o'clock the family friends of the happy pair entered the church and took the seats' reserved for them near the altar, and fifteen min utes later the arrival of the bridal party was announced by the graud notes of the Mendelssohn Wedding march, which was 'beautifully rendered by Miss Myrtle Hamilton, and to whose impressive measures the wedding cortege proceeded up Ihe east aisle fol lowing the lead of the ushers, Capt. E. P. Uruner aud Albert Phenis, in the following order: Mr. Joe Murphy and Miss Cora llortou; Mr. Ed.

The lat ter lady was magn.ificiently attired in a superb silk of the new color known as crushed Btrawlx?rrics, while from her head, which was crowned with a wreath of orange blossoms, fell a graceful veil of fleecy, white, which reached to the floor.

Although the attendance through out was only average, the best of feeling prevailed throughout the en tire meeting, the races were all close enough to be interesting, and conducted with perfect fairness, and the horsemen present expressed themselves as highly pleased with their treatment and as be ing anxious to visit Emporia again. The venture was not a financial success, and the association will probably drop mre or less on the enterprise. some chances, but to a man who under stands the business we are satisfied that it is the most profitable business to-day in the state. We wish the Capt. success in his new undertaking, not only for his own benefit, but for the general good of the county, for the more sheep we get here, properly handled, the better it will be for the county.

Quite a numln-r of farmers have shea- ed their sheep, but owing to the decline in the price of wool, most of them are hold ins: for Iictter figures. Vell in formed nartie say that the amount of wool produced in this county this sea son will largely exceed the yield of any preceding year, which bear out the declaration frequently made by Tub News that Lyon county is fast becom ing one of the largest wool-producing counties in the state, and that in addition to its extensive cattle interests it also of fer Inducements for sheep growing that is writing cUl trom various sections of the United States.

Monday the trustees of the Methodist Episcopal church iu this city, made sale of their property on the corner of Merchants and Ninth streets, including the old church and parsonage buildings and four lots, to W. P. B. Paisley for f 2.100 dollars in cash. Mr. Paisley, we understand, will occupy the parsonage as a resideuc and will donate the church aud two lots to his denomination, the Cumberland Presbyterian, which is about to organize a church here. The donation is certain ly a very liberal one indeed, and reflects credit upon tho generosity of Mr. Pais ley. By his act bis church at once ob tains the means of commencing opera tions here. This old church was dedicated in 1862 or ltC3, it erection having been commenced in 1859, when J. C. Fraker was the minister of that organization here. ' Chareli Ma-iaa. Rev. Mr. Dudley conducted the union service at the Presbyterian church Sab bath evening, and preached an excellent sermon to a full house. Rev. C. U. Itice, presiding elder of the A Sad Story. Some weeks ago, a young man broken iu health, and wrecked by indulgence in strong drink, found his way to the poor farm, where, after lingering out a few days of painful suffering, he died and was buried, bis remains finding a resting place among the other nameless dead whose dust has mingled with the earth of God's acre which is consecrated to the lasting repose of the humble poor. Bv some means intelligence of hi sad fate and mournful death reached his friends, who reside in In diana, and are people of wealth and lu Hueuce, aud yesterday parties arrived in this city from his native home, to con vey the remains of the deceased back to the place from whence he was tempted to stray by the power of a consuming appetite. A magnificent metallic casket was purchased and this attcrnoon the body of the young man, whose name we suppress out of consideration to his friends, was disinterred and committed to the expensive receptacle prepared for it. nreoaratorv to startinn east with it to-morrow.

Taking their places in frout of the altar, the contract ing parties were met by Rev.

Arriving at this place, the bridal party tooV their stand in the parlor, and for nearly two hours received the heart felt congratulations qf their many friends and their earnest wishes for their future happiness. This pleasant formality was broken in upon by the announcement supper', and the bride and groom with their attendants aud family friends, re paired to the dining room to partake of the delicacies which had been provided for the happy occasion. In the meantime, the apartment where the gifts were displayed became the objective point of the numerous guests, who viewed with delight the many handsome tokens of esteem and affection which had been lavished upon the young couple by their faithf'il and devoted friends. The presents embraced numerous articles of beauty and utility, which will no doubt be duly appreciated when the happy pair begin to set up their household gods.

Advices from all parts of the stale con vey intelligence or miuntilul rams, and the apprehension of the disastrous con sequences of a protracted drouth have liecn dispcled by copious and soul-cheering showers.

I In tli'n city I isl evening says that the illonwoo,! has been raised two or three feet by the rain fall in the vicinity of its headwaters. In Lyon county bountiful rains liave prevailed within the last twenty-four hours, and there is a very cheering prospect for frequent showers to-day. The dry weather of the past few weeks has enabled the farmers to thoroughly clear their corn of weeds, and the timely rains will give it a boom that will insure an excellent crop in this section. Wheat has suffered considerably, but there are many acres of this cereal in the county which will afford an average yield and which will be greatly benefitted by the showers of yesterday. The grass has taken on a deeper green, and seems to be shooting up with a rapidity that is almost visible. The ud vantage to the fruit crop of the late rain can scarcely bo estimated, and thousauds of bushels of peaches. apples and plums were saved by the - earlh-rejoiciug drops of yesterday's showers. In short. all nature and humanity are rejoicing over the grateful visitation which has brought cheer to fainting hearts and drooping vegetation, and has inspired with new hope the hearts of the people of the grand and beautiful state of Kan sas.
