"'-K V " T Tl ,, i ; Ml SaiXg M..M. MURDOCK & BROTHER, Proprietors. PERSONAL AND LOCAL ITEMS OP NEWS. This is Decoration day. "Camillc" at the opera house this c cu ing. Hut few farraerh were in the city yesterday. Remember Miss Anna Jackson's art re ception tbis afternoon. Let every one turn out to tbe decoration oftbc soldiers' graves tbis afternoon Our incrcbant tailors are now very busy maMnjj spring suits, some of wblcb arc very elegant ones. Work on tbo outside of tbe new build ings about tbe city, had to be suspended yesterday on account of the rain. There arc several good shots in tbe Wich ita gun clubjMicnce their practice boot at the park to-morrow will be worth seeing. Yesterday Mr. lien Del'ul received a let ter from bis old eastern' friend Tom Whit ridge, that he had lately fallen heir to$2T0, 000, by tbe death of an uncle. "The Dandy Fifth" will be recited at the decoration of tbe soldiers' graves to day, by Wm. T. Doyle, one or the Char lotte Thompson dramatic company. Owing to the very unpleasant weather or yesterday, Miss Anna Jackson determined to postpone her art reception until to-day at 2 o'clock, at which time she will be pleased to welcome her many friends. The election held in Delano township yesterday for the purpose of voting $10,000 bonds in favor ol the capital stock of the "Wichita, Denver & Jlcl'hcrsou railroad company, resulted in the polling of 178 votes, of which 02 were against and 121 in favor of-said bonds. Miss Eliza Lowrcy died of consumption yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock at her father's residence, the lirst house south of tbo German Methodist church. The funer al will take place tbis afternoon at 2 o'clock, and the remains will be interred in High land cemetery. Jack Hilliard came in from Missouri yes terday with a fine lot of horses, suited for family and buggy horses. Ho will keep them here for a few days at tbe Topcka avenue stables. Persons desiring choice driving animals would do well to call on Jack before he takes them down to Arkan sas City. James W. Henry and Mr. Harris, in com pany with somo half dozen other gentle men, all merchants of Joplin, Mo., arrived in the city yesterday. They came by team from Joplin, and have been several days on the way, camping out at night. The jour ney has been a very pleasant one. These men arc on a prospecting tour, intending to purchase property before returning home. Several of them went to Harper, Saratoga nnd other points to-day. Mr. C. 1. King, the popular druggist, ol Leon, Canas, spent Monday in tbis city interviewing our various wholesale firms. I.eon has proved to be one of the liveliest business points on the Frisco road, we should judge, from tbe number of daily Laolk's bandied by Mr. King's news de partment which be runs in connection with bis drug store. The ice cream and strawberry festival given last evening In Itusscll hall, by the colored people, wai ery numerously at tended and greatly enjoyed by all present. This e enlng was Just warm enough to give a pleasant relish to the cream, and never were more tempting straw berries seen than those provided for this occasion. These, in conjunction with the delicious cake and cool lemonade attracted the attention of all until a late hour, when the merry-maker departed to their homes. "JANE EYRE." A cry laige and refined audience greet ed Charlotte Thompson at the opera liou.,0 last evening, and we doubt if there was one present at Uie conclusion of the last act who regretted it. Miss Thompson has certainly well merited the distinction of being one of America's most talantcd actresses, and she is ably supported by a line a company as there is on the road. The title role of tliirf popular drama, "Jane Kjrc," was assumed in a most intelligent and highly satisfactory manner by Miss Thompson, who at once made friends with the audience, and evoked the heartiest ap plause. The balance of tbe cast come in for a generous share ol approbation. The company will this evenin? play "Camille," :i cry pleasing drama, when we expect to sec the house packed. Wcdoubtll there lias ccr been a company iu Wichita who made so favorable an impression on their lirst appearance. IN LUCK. A DESERTED WIFE. Mrs. Wm.. Blatner Deserted by Her Husband and Left in Destitute Circumstances. Last Monday there ariived In this city from licntou ajoung man, bis wife and in fant child, who, on leaving the car at the Fort Scott depot, sought a boarding place which they finally found and secured at the Valley House, on Douglas avenue. Soon after getting into quarters the bus band told his wife that he was going out in town to look for work, and would also go to the depot and sec after their baggage. She bade him good-bjc aud thought no more of the circunintancc until supper time arrived, aud the evening hours passed iar into the night, and yet her hus band did not return. In the morn ing her anxiety became so great that she determined to go in quest ofbim. Tutting on her coat and bat, she left her child in charge of tbe landlady and went out in search or her husband. On visiting the depot she was nearly overcome with grief on learning that he had been there, secured his trunk and left for parts un known. He also carried the check for her trunk and all the money they bad, some thing over 200. She returned to tbe hotel where she told her story, giving as her husband's name, Wm.IJlatncr. She says hei' friends live in Louisville, Ky., and that she now wants to go to them, but she is in an utterly destitute , condition. 31ar shal Cairns learning of the affair visited her at the hotel, and found her al most prostrated with mortification and grief, aud not knowing what to do or which way to turu. She seems to bo a very nice young woman, but eslreniely illiter ate. She can assign no reason for her hus band's leaving as they had alwajsgot along pleasantly together. On reaching Wichita he wished to go ou to Dakota, but she insisted on stopping here, and with this exception they have nev er differed on any material point. Marshal Cairns is try ing to find the whereabouts of Blatner, but if.unsucccssful a pass to Louisville, Ky., will probably be furnished this distressed lady, when she will return to her parents. A man who will thus purposely get his wife in a strange place, and among stran gers, steal her money and then desert ker, is too mean to associate with wolves, let alone men, and if Blatner is found be should be made to make all reparation pos sible. PERSONAL MENTION. Sheriff Fisher is "taking in" the Topcka convention. Wm. Jezzaid, one or the clerks at 31 Kohn's dry goods store, ii on the sick list We arc sotry to learn that Carl Ilibargcr Is confined to his room with chills and fever. 3Ir. and 3Irs.

Jlor-e, of the Wdlingtenian, of Wellington was among our most agreeable callers yesterday. He savs that W. is nourishing, and that business lias been ex ceedingly good in that city tbis spiing. L. D. Walton, Eq., a banker ol Harper, and one of the rising voung men of the southwest, is in this city on his way home from Foit Scott, where ho has been inter viewing the r.ii!ro id nrmager on matters appertaining to the interest of Harper. LAND SLIDES. Some mouths ago a certain dealer in sec ond hand goods in thisclty, was called upon by a man who was very anxious to dispose or his household effects, as he was about starling for the west and did not want to carry his goods with bim. Among the arti cles was an old and badly worn sofa, which had seen better days, but they dated long into tbo past. This tbe dealer was loth to purchase, but finally struck a bar gain, getting' the sola for about its worth as kindling wood. When the other articles were brought to his store, along with the old sofa, which was pitched to one side where it had laid until a few days ago, when the dealer thought he would tear it to pieces to get out the springs. Iu doing this, what was bis sur prise to find nicely stored away in a scam iu the back a roll or greenbacks amounting to ?42. They bad evidently been placod there for safekeeping and then forgotten. The dealer has also forgotten the iiame of the party selling him the sofa, so as a mat ter or course ho is about $40 ahead on the traueaction.

It is not oltcu that our attention is called to a sadder scene than the ouc presented at the residence of W. B. Drunnen iu West Wichita, Wednesday. Last Saturday 31 r. D. was taken violently ill, and atoncc telegraphed for his father und mother, who live in Grand Island, Nebraska, but ere their arrival the fatal disease that afflicted him had ruu its course, and the spirit of Mr. I), had gone back to its 31akcr. The fuccral ceremonies baa been at ranged, and the corpse was ready for the grave when the deceased's rather and mother ar- rived, who were nearly prostrated with grief on learning that their son, whom they were hastening to see, had passed from earth. The affcctlonato wire and mother was so v crvvbclmcd with sorrow and the attendant excitement that her nervous sys tem gave way beneath the severe strain, and she was thrown upon a bed of fever, and was unable to attend the funeral serv ices of her husband, which took place Wednesday afternoon. The family were but recent comers here, and have not an extended acquaintance. The mother is now laying at the point of death, and is wholly unablo to care for her family of little children, but no doubt tbe parents of her husband will afford her help, and we feel sure that the good citizens of West Wichi ta will be generous in their aid and sym pathy to this afflicted family. Another Rats to Chicago. In order to j-ivc the people of tin city the advantage of the low rales made by the Kansas City and Chicago lines the Santa Fe have reduced the round trip tickets for the Chicago convention to $20.8o. This is one fare for the round trip. The tickets will be on sale al the union depot this morning, by the Santa Fo and 'Frisco roads. The train leaves by the former road at 7:30 and by the latter at 9:50 a. in. These tickets will be on sale till the 3d of .lime and good for return passage till the 10th. The above is a very low rate and a large number will take advantage of it to viit the great city and assist in the nomination of the presidential cmdidate.
