The Chimes of Xormandy. given by the
Hess opera troupe last night was, simply
the lincst. most artNtlc entertainment of
the kind ever gicn in this city. The
troupe had been to the cities of Old Mexico
and arc returning to the Atlantic seaboard,
taking in the prominent places. The ther
mometer stands high of course, and large
houses arc out or the question, but that en
tertalumeut last night will not be forgotten

Hentoii .t Wciricfc threshed on Monday
and half a day Tuesday 1,534 bushels of
wheat cut from fifty acres of ground be
longing to Robert E. Lawrence, who says
it was the quickest and cleanest Job of
threshing he ever had done for him. The
Held averaged within a fraction or thirty,
one bushels to the acre which yield did not
appear to surprise Mr. Lawrence who,
year alter year lias raised not only some or
the largest but some or the highest grade
wheat iu the county.
The Ilig.Uiver keeps up an unprecedent
ed length of time and at a stage which eve
ry few days threatens to break oerthe
banks. lVom the waters of the l!lg Itivcr
the Little Itlver is backed up for a distance
of two or three miles. Heavy rains on the
headwaters of the latter would be sure to
result in a vigorous demand for boats along
mauy streets In ibN city. The heaviest
snows for many years fell the past winter
iu the Mountains of Colorado, and our
latest advices from there says the surplus

The new house of Fred Israel, on north
Lawrence street, now nearly completed, is
uue of the prettiest in that portion of the
city where so many line homes arc located.
It is not only very attractive iu architected
design but the plan is ji wondotfully con
venient ouc. Tbu stylo conforms to the
prevailing one of two stories, angling roof,
low gables, hooded balcony and narrow
stoop with railed steps. The painting is of
unique colors and combinations. On the
whole Mr. Israel has a very pretty and a
very line home.
The shade trees of Wichita add wonder
fully to the beauty and comfort ol the city,
but would It not be an improvement irthoy
were all trimmed up ten or fifteen feet from
the ground. Then jou would not only
have the shade but a free circulation or air
under the trees, drying out the ground in
wet weather, and making it more healthy,
a well as more ornamental. F.
You are undoubtedly correct, Mr. F.
Your suggestion ir carried out would not
only result In all that you nay, but render
theclty and her homes murli more attract
ive. The shade is so dense aud the trees
so numerous that in rldingaloug the streets
one gets but the most unsatisfactory
glimpses ol the residences, and the many
pretty homes and their surroundings.
The Eagle last year called attention
to this matter but few heeded it. The reg
ulation sldewalk-trec should be trimmed
up fifteen feet from the bottom, be cut back
at the top so that the loots or homes could
not only be seen but catch the sunshine.

There has been some talk among the Ke
publlcans to the effect that our party would
have Judge Amos Harris to meet again this
fall on the stump, that he would be the
Democratic nominee for couutv attorney.
While under the prescut law there is as
much or more pay in the comity attorney
ship than In the judgeship. Judge
Harris has not proved the kind or a man
who worships shekels. Rut there Is a bet
ter reason why wc need not expect to have
him to fight this fall. Judge Harris bc-
ugs 10 uie out school of politicians,
and has great respect for the proprieties
and amenetles. Having lately occupied
the bench ot this district, be would prob
ably under no circumstances consent to ac
cept the position of attorney ir tendered.
While the judge is an able lawver. and
while he received a la.ge number of Ite
publUjjunotcs in this county in his late
canvass, he will no doubt encourage some
of the younger lawyers of his partv to make

THE TEACHERS' INSTITUTE.
Institute met as usual at 7:45, and after
the opening services readlajj of the critic's
report and the sews Items were tad, the
business of the day conranced iiVearnsst.
The first room we enterest was" that of
Mr. Jay, In wfaick the class la constitution
vf as reciting. The eld article of confeder
ation were dlscusaed and. tbelr defects
shown, also the diferaU 'Haste of govern
ment and their parts given In detail. The
only hesitancy I notleed was whenJlr. Jay
asked the name of the present governor of
Kansas, those that answered the rest of the
questions correctly were stuck on that.
Either the governor or the pupils must stir
around a little more.
The next class was in physiology, usually
conducted by Mr. Hammond; butyesterday
It was conducted by Mr. C. J. Reed, a gen
tleman well qualified to fill the position.
The subject of anatomy, or the bones, al
though a dry subject generally, can by
proper handling and a familiarity oc the
part or the teacher, be made an interesting
subject. An outline was placed on the
beard showiug tbe divisions of the skele
ton, the number in each division, shape
and uses, with quite an amount of informa-
lion'givcn on this subject, ao .that I made
up my mind that man was fearfully made.
Mr. ilalleck's room was next visited, his
class in Natural l'blloiopby was up for re
citation and the subject of motion, the dif
ferent kinds, uniforms, accelerated, retard
ed and resultant, were touched upon and
the resultant motion was illustrated on the
blackboard to the satisfaction or the class.
There was some talk on the subject of mat
ter, its general and specific (proprieties,
showing that the subject had been studied
up by tbe most of those present.
We next visited Mr. Uammoud's class in
Arithmetic, they were at work ou the four
fundamental rules. Some would suppose
that the four simple rules should be so
well unperstood by teachers that no time
should be taken for such things as those,
but we must remember that the ques
tion U not as to what is tbe
sum of Kiand 41, but they are to teach oth
ers bow to find that out, and without a
perfect knowledge or the subject it is Im
possible to teach others. There is ot course
a great deal or quibbling on small matters,
such as carry and borrow and the particu
lar words to be used, but still it Is a good
sign to see pupils ready and willing to ask
questions on tbe different subjects, showing
that there la a large number or teachers
that have arrived at tbe point where all
must arrive to be a successful teacher;
that is. they are willing to admit that tbey
do not know It all. Other classes were vis
ited and spelling, reading and other sub
jects listened to with profit to ail.
Didactics is as good subject as a stranger
could listen to. It Is a discussion, of the
different methods as tbey are presented by
the different members or the class. Yes
terday we had quite a discussion on the
old old story or whispering, and after an
exchange or ideas, the question was settled
as it always is, that we have the evil and
must make the best or it. About 09 out or
every 1W admit that in is Impossible to
stop It In school. Yesterday we received
eight more making our number 81, showing
a good number Tor tbe third day.
Wc had a lew visitors who made it look
pleasant. Hoping to have more hereafter.
I give you the names of our members for
Wednesday and close.

LOTS OF TROUBLE.
D.iv,t I.. Owin vs. ltjvle.. JJerr-er
trim! bJ!'C.-..W -.!'.;,' n..r plaintiff. :o and
i'ratt Center is in Pratt county, a county
and city with which Wichita will ere long
be united by rail, or at least we hope so
and so do they. There is a town in Pratt
county, also, by the name of aaratoga,whlcn
Is on a line more or less direct from Wichi
ta to Pratt Center. That these facts are
known to a majority of our readers who
take It ibr granted, it la said that the feel
ing existing b' tween these towns Is some
what tinctured with what might be de
nominated a spirit or rivalry not altogether
tree of sharpness. That Is none of your
business orour. That Piatt Is bound to
be a treat couutv. and that she will boast
one or two good towns in tbe noar luturc,
i nevertheless as certain as the majority or
western probabilities, and nothing is more
absolutely certain to come to pass than a
wotcrn probability, if we except tbe pro
phesies of the Bible and the de
feat of the Democratic party. Now the
Daily Mousing Eagle, the only full-
fledged, sonic, time since dispatched one of
Its emissaries out into the territory encom
passed by the lines of Pratt with instruc
tions to take every subscriber offering, and
not to rail to tell tbe readers or the great
Happy Valley Dally all about the towns,
settlements and improvements by him
uoted, to the cud that the minds of our
readers hereabouts might be disabused of
the Idea that t be jumplng-off place or this
mundane sphere was the west line
or Kingman county. ow comes
in the run the kind or fun
that ripples up iu a Republican convention
when a prohibition resolution is introduc
ed, tbe kind of fun which has tbe effect of
drawing out tbe features or our ordinarily
good humored face to a length that would
dwarf the elongated countenance ofllar
uum's'sacred elephant, so realarticly depict
ed iu the Illustrated advertisement of
the only pure ivory soap.
Our long winded and long legged
traveling correspondent got there. There
Is no doubt on that head as a generous list
of subscribers fully attests, got there in
part, but not altogether or all over, as it
were. Saratoga be saw, be writ up, but he
didu't conquer. The conquering business
was on the other side, at least we should
judgo so from a column and a half
In the Pratt Center Press of last
week, containing an introductory expla
nation two rather, personal letters and an
editorial devoted to him who in sorrow
pens these few line. The Eagle traveler
flew high, but high enough to take in only
Saratoga, when he came down to tell tbe
world or his adventures. To this kind of
partiality Hon. T. K. Simpson, secrtary of
the Pratt County Town Company, most
vigorously protests as does the editor of
the Press. We don't know where that
correspondent Is now, but we kindly
warn him to keep awap from Pratt Center
if he has auy desire to live long enough to
vote for Maine.
In conclusion we can only say that regu
lar correpondent, traveling correspond
ents and occasional correspondents arc de
lightful nuisances when it comes to getting
the responsible editor into trouble and
other people by tbe ears. This paper nor
any one connected with It has the least feel
ing against man, woman, child or town
company in Pratt count. Our sole idea
so tar as its readers and patrons are con
cerned is to build up, in the shortest time
possible, a paper which shall lie a true and
creditable representative daily for the sec
tion of the state or which Uichlta is the
natural center. We hate no intrreit nor
will wc take any Interest In any rivalries,
nor tbe side of any one ot these as against
any other. While it I tluioe impossible
for the average local correspondent to say
something for his own town without dis
paraging some others, we nevertheless will
guard these matters as closely as
possible. So far as Pratt Center is
concerned we can only say that tu soon ass
possible, we shall have our traveling agent
visit that place and write up it advantages
In a fair and truthful manner, without re-1
flection on the Interests of ay other locil
