The weather, it strikes us, is of the most auspicious character to test one's faith in the ordinance of immer- The oldest ben on record died a few days ago at the farm of M. C. Stones, east of Larned, and it would not be diffi cult to obtain the affidavits of ttt least a thousand persons declaring that there respective landladies cooked her for din ner on Sunday. The project ot a telephone exchange in Emporia is looming up, the gentle man having it in charge reporting twen- ty-nve subscribers, witn encouraging prospect for many more. It would be a great convenience to Emporia, and we hope It may be established. We deeply regret to chronicle the re moval from Emporia of the M K. & T. land office, which was loaded up Tuesday for transportation. We can only observe, as it ia common oa occasions of such mournful character, that Emporia's loss is Parsons' eternal gain.

The lamps in the assembly room of state Normal need reorganizing. They behaved very badly Friday evening and exhibited the erratic tendencies of kero sene to the great discomfort of that por tion ot the audience who have not be come advocates of the process of crema tion. It is a pleasant commentary upon the faculty and students that the lamps are the least effulgent feature of the in stitution. There were no sleepers at the Congre gational church last evening. Dr. Cord- ley either forgot or threw away his man uscriptand though always good, we believe all were agreed that he had fair ly beaten his own record. The audience i held with the closest attention for perhapa twenty minutes although it hardly seemed half that. We trust 1 may have the pleasure of listening to many more of the eanie sort. Card of thanks To the many friends who were untiring in their de votion to my husband, A. J. Hughes, during his last illness I wish to express the gratitude which I feel for their many kindnesses.

Proctor, the dis tinguished scientist, will lecture on as tronomy in this city, on the 18th or 17th of February, under the auspices of the Normal lyceum. A man with such a world-wide reputation, needs no com mendation, and if the ball can accom modate the people on that occasion we have over-estimated the intelligence of the Emporia public. The Amateur band favored, with a delightful serenade Tuesday eve, a party of young folks who had gathered at the residence of D. W. Morris, on Rural street, to meet Mr. and Mrs. Tom Jones, who stopped off at Emporia some days since on their wsy from Illinois to Colorado. The serenaders were royally entertained as were all the other guests present on this delightful occasion. Monday, the 17th, was the. day as signed for resuming the taking of depo sitions in the Santa Fe bond suit, but as neither witnesses nor a ttorneys put in an appearance the matter went by de fault. It is very desirable that this case should be finally disposed of in time, at least, to spike the guns in the next local canvass of the pretended reformers who have heretofore utilized it so extensively in the manufacture of political capital AVe are informed .by Mr. J. B. II inkle that while the insurance on his bouse will cover all the damage which it suffered by reason of tae fire on Sunday morning, he will lose considerably in the destruction of clothing and bouscbeld goods, the es timated value of articles of this clsas which were burned being about $600.00. on which there is not more than $400 insurance. Mr. II inkle de sires The News to return his sincere thanks to the fire companies and citiaens who furnished such generous assistance in extinguishing the fire which menaced hia home. Jennie Garfield is now considering very seriously in what little girl's home she would be moat happy. 1 suppose she will go where she is thought the most of. The measure of this love is es timated by the number of votes cast. Only two more daya remain before she will be taken to somebody's home. The interest, as well as the votes, is increas ing, which may be seen from the follow ing record : Edna J.

The city council at its meeting on Monday eyening passed an ordinance permitting property owners to erect hitching posts in front of their business places on Commmercial street. We are not so lost to all sense of magnanimity as to say, "We told you bo," but It must be remembered that The News always fought the measure abolishing these con veniences from our principal thorough fare, and it felt well assured that the city fathers were acting In opposition to the wishes of the farmers and a large pro portion of the business men of the city when they passed the ordinance against which we entered our stubborn protest. We are rejoiced to know that the coun cil has come to its right mind in this matter, and that it has vindicated the judgment of The News which declar ed that our municipal guardians baa bitten off more than they could chew hen thev rjroaecuted their crnsade against hitching posts to the extent of driving all teama from Commercial street to the side avenues. We shall be glad to see our handsome trading thor oughfare again lined with wagons, a sight which is agreeable for all lovers of business activity to contemplate. Marriage Bella. . Ward Kkkler A pleasant event that had cast Its shadow before, to the Intimate friends of the parties most con cerned, transpired Wednesday morning at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Clinton Keeler, whose daughter Inda B. Keeler was united in marriage to Mr R. E. Ward, of Topeka. Miss Inda Keeler has been well and favorably known, lor years, in Emporia and vicini ty as one of our most popular young ladies, being noted for her frankness, sociability and kindly disposition and many good qual- it ies of head and heart. Mr. R.E. Ward, though a comparative stranger here, is one of the highly esteemed young men of Topeka, ' whom W3 will have to par- don for tresspassing upon Em poria, as we feel assured he will take good care of the prize he bears away. Shortly after ten, in the presence of a number of the relatives and near friends of those whose nuptials were about to be celebrated, the two whose hearts beat as one, walked into the room, arm in arm, and were met by Elder D. P. Mitchell. The ceremoay was pronounced in a brief and impressive manner. After congratula tions, an excellent repast was served the newly made pair and the guests, the witnesses of the ending of the separate lives of Inda Keeler and Eugene Ward and the beginning of the life of Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Ward. A number of handsome and appropriate wedding presents were displayed. An elegant silver tea service awaits presentation at Topeka, as the gift of a number of young gentle man friends, in whose honor Mr. Ward gave an elaborate supper last Monday evening, just before his relinquishment of his bacheller claims and customs. Many of Inda's old friends attended the couple to the train, wishing the two God-speed and happy lives, and all the good wishes implied in the pleasant time-honored custom of casting an old shoe after the newly mads husband and wife, parting with them with the feeling that though it waa the loss of friends here it was also Mr. Ward's and Topeka's gain.' the guests as an additional memento of the occasion were presented with the neatest wedding cards imaginable, saying "at home, Topeka, Kansas, after Janaury 20th.

The speaker was introduced to the audi ence by Prof. Sadler, in a very felicitous manner, and proceeded at once upon the elaboration of his subject, introduc ing with effective imagery, Corona, do.and his little group of titled cavaliers, as, in the remote summer of 1542, they gathered on the umbrageous banks of the Arkansas, near the site of the Wich ita of taday.'cherishing aweet memories of a stately court, whose splendors were only rivaled by the matchless skies of Castile, and indulging in vague dreams of newer empires as their eyes wandered over the boundless sweeps of yerdure which were then catching the first low sound of waves, where, in God's own time should roll a human sea. The Interested auditor followed with absorbing interest the march of the intrepid little band toward the rising sun, lingered with them as they halted on the west bank of the Missouri, and returned with them to New Spain or Mexico, where the spirit of adventure faded in the pleasures of the provincial capital. The expedition of Dustine, in 1719 marked the next epoch in the development of the Kansas of to-day, and then while the embryonic Republic whose shores afford an asylum for the down-trodden, and whose golden fields of endeavor tempt the aspiring of all na tions, was yet in the cradle of its dawn ing greatness, Pike came and marked out a pathway in the trackless wilder ness which has since become the high way of a mighty nation. Then, in 1854, when an inscrutable providence Was preparing America for a baptism of blood from which she was to rise, renewed of plumage, as a dove that ia covered with silver and her feathers like gold, came those intrep id pioneers whose stalwart patriotism ma tured within the shadow of Plymouth rock, and Lawrenee became a historical name, whose sacrifice and imperial glories shall live as long as the cause of human freedom shall render possible the accession to the proudest pin nacles of earthly power the sons of a Republic whose beneficent provisions, instead of freezing the gen ial current of the soul, foster emulation. furnish the facilities for a broad and gen erous culture, and, in the language of - one of America's gifted sons, "makes hope the tailor of every ragged boy." Thus, in our feeble way, have we endeavored to epitomize the lecture of Henry King, on the "Genesis of Kansas' the recollection of which will ever be to all who heard it, a pleasant thing and a perpetual joy. Borgia rr and Fir. On Sunday morning at about 4 o'clock, flames were discovered in the residence of J. B. Hinkle on Constitution street, by the inmates of the dwelling, who first became aware of the presence of fire by the smoke which issued from the apartment where it originated. Mr. Hinkle immediately ran to the' engine house and aroused superintendent Hammond, who aleeps there, and he promptly telephoned to L C. Munger, engineer at the water works, who lost no time in putting on the requisite pressure, which was up to the proper gauge by the time that Messrs. Ed. MacLennan, John Russell, and several others who joined them on the way, arrived with the hose cart at the scene of the fire. The coupling was quickly effected by Mr. Hammond, and the excellent work of the firemen soon told in subduing the flames, which did considerable damage to the north end of the house, and burned some bed- ding and other household goods stored in an upstairs room. There can be no doubt that the fire originated ihrough the inadvertance of burglars, who had entered the house by means of a window in the kitchen. which had been raised, and in rummag. ing among the goods in the room above ignited a feather bed and some other in flammable articles by the careless hand ling of the light employed by them in searching for booty. This theory is sustained by the fact that, while all the goods which were removed after the discovery of fire were carried out the front way, a fine dress belong. ing to Miss Sadie Hinkle, which had been left lying on a lounge, Is missing, and a gold watch and chain and a pair of bracelets which were lying near, were found in the garden, in the rear of the house, having evidently been drop ped by the thieves in their hasty flight. The damage by reason of fire and water is considerable, but it ia fully cov ered by insurance. Coaanllasanta-r. At a meeting of the class in elocution. ot the state Normal School, Emporia, Kansas, on the 17th day of January, A.

Hood returned from Ottawa Monday and report a strong sentiment at that point in favor or the construc tion of the Kansas City & Emporia rail road. Mr. Will Shelden, of Grand Haven, Michigan, stopped in Emporia Tues day, on his way to Colorado, and was the guest of 1. E. Lambert. He was greatly pleased with our city, and as he is prospecting for a location, may con clude to settle here. Miss Zeline Mantey, the violinist of the Litta troupe, spent the Sabbath in Emporia at the Park Place hotel, visit ing with friends from Council Grove, which was represented at the concert on Saturday night by a handsome delega tion. We are pleased to announce that Jack Gilchrist, who was so nearly frozen while driving persons to and from the Cross party on last Thurs kay night, that his recovery was at one time considered doubtful, is now convalescing. Jack is a citizen that Em poria could illy spare, and be must not atay out so long next time. Rev. Mr. Dudley, who has filled the Presbyterian pulpit in this city for more than a year with the utmost ac ceptability to his congregation, preached his farewell sermon Sunday and left on Monday tor the east, where he has been called to a charge at Corning, a flourishing new railroad town, near Columbus, Ohio. The parishioners of Rev. Dudley part with him with a feel ing of regret, the intensity of which is only equalled by their solicitude for his continued success and future happiness. Track Talk. The new time card on the Missouri Pacific railway took effect Sunday, the 16th, at 1 a. m. No material change on the Neosho division ; passenger train going north leaves her e at 1 p. m., in stead of 1 :02 p. m. The Missouri Pacific railway gives no tice that on and after February 1st no stop-over privileges will be allowed on anyclasa of tickets. Passengers wish ing to stop off at any point must pur chase tickets to that point only. Mr. Burnett, the Missouri Pacific agent, informs us that he received a car load of freight at 4 p. m. Friday, the 14th, which left St Louis on the 12th, thus making the time in two days via Holden and Leroy cut-oil. Thia places our merchants on time orders from St Louis on au equal footing with Kansas uity.

Editors News: I regret that I can not regard this institution as at present constructed through the rose colored lenses of its friends. The manner in which it originated and its history up to this time hss not been such as would commend itself naturally to disinterest ed, thoughtful citizenship as being pure ly pro bono publico. I do not mean to say that its personell is not good, as far as individual integrity is concerned, but unfortunately its organization waa per fected in a rather quiet way. Its officers and directors are largely the mem bers of the supposed syndicate, their personal friends and adhe rents, and by a curious - coincidence are divided almost equally between the two monied corporations yclept banks) that have hitherto antagonized eacl. oth er, bnt are now pulling together for their joint interests. The railroad com mittee instead of being in the interest of the city is composed almost and I think entirely of the new construction com pany and its friends and one member ex-Governor Eskridge is out now advo cating the Ottawa & Emporia extension upon tne stump, it is a curious coalition that can harmonize their interests, and cause sucn men aa senator f lumo, u. C Cross, Judge Peyton, C. V. Eskridge and P. B. Maxson to work together. I very much regret that the organization of said board has been such as it is and that its membership is being recruited by means of private circulars instead of a general invitation to tne Business men of the city, as such a course natur ally breeds suspicion on the part of the public generally that the organization is in the interest of speculation and to fore stall public opinion, an aid rather than a hinderance to the schemes of which ru mor hss spoken. I do not forget that there are men in the board whe are above the suspicion of having axes to grind, but I fear that they will be powerless to prevent the accomplishment of the pur pose of those financially interested. I hope I may be mistaken in my surmises aa I mnch reeret circumstances ahould indicate any auch state of aflairs in thia community. CmiH. Earaatt's Caeaalaa, tas Beat Hair Bresriac la tn World.
