these blocks three stone-, if this i-hould be
done wouldn't it bine the t fleet of making

They would loom up in such a wa as to

but fruit men will know. Two of the
apples measured thirteen and one-half
inches in circumference, but all of them
were perfect monsters. Two hundred of
them would fill a barrel containing fivo
bushels. If our friends don't stop this fruit

Ye-sterdaj- a gentleman who has been in
this citj- sinco last spring, was showing a
friend who had recently arrh ed, the sights
of the lore-t city. When they- meandered
around to tin) Tremont hotel, Dr. Hugh
Smith was oxerci-imr his portly military
looking form in the shade of the forest trees
in front of that popular resort. Our new
citizen inarched up to him and introduced
his eastern friend to Capt. Pajne, the great
Oklahoma boomer. The doctor straight
ened up and said mj- name is not Paj-ne
and 1 am not a boomer. Then the new citi
zen explained that some one pointed the
doctor out to him, several months since, as
Paj-ne and that he had mistaken him all
this time tor Paj-ne. He Injped there was
no hirm done.
The man, or thing, who insulted a kuly
on Water street, on Monday at noon, had
better "skip the gutter" nnd get out of town
ns soon as possible, ns her husbnnd has a
description of him and is looking for him
with n siv shooter. It seems almost in
credible that modest, retiring ladies, should
be insulted at high noon on our streets, or
that nnj thing in the image of God should
becomo so debased. It is low business
bojs, besides )t is dangerous, for if jou
triumph in your meanness, it is but for a
cry short time, for though the ladies maj
not be able to resent jour insults, thej-all
hate husbands, big brothers or protectors of
some kind, and you should know tho terri
ble feeling that such acts arouse in the
hearts of those to whom the insulted persons
are near and dear, and for policj 's sake, if
j-ou have no manhood, bo careful nnd give
no ofl"en-e of this kind.
A daring robcrj- was committed at the
Wells Bros', restaurant on AVest Douglas
avenue night before last or earlj- j esterdaj
morning. About 3 o'clock in the morning,
G. B. Dais, a guest, came down stairs nnd
told one of the proprietors that some one
had been in his room and robbed him of $9
nnd a ret oh er. Mr. Wells and Dais then
went up stairs but could find no one but
guests who had registered their names at the
hotel. Wells then told Davis to watch that
no one left, the house.whilo he went in search
of a policeman. He soon returned with Offi
cer Snj dcr and they proceeded to search the
house and the guests, but insfcad of finding
anj- cluo to who the thief could be, thej
found that G. W. Black, another guest who
registered from Sedgewick City, had been
relieved of $27. It appears that the parties
left their room doors open.
A memorandum book belonging to Davis
was found at the foot of the stairs, and the
two pocket-books minus the monej- were
found in tho back ard, but no cluo to the
robber could be found.
The proprietors offer $50 reward for the
apprehension and conwetion of the thief.
Mr. W. M, Callaway, of Gj-psum town
ship, brought in to Jocclj-n & Thomas a few
bushels of com together with a few sample
stalks bearing two cars each. Tho corn ex
ceeds for size, length and solidity the corn
which took tho premium at the state fair. It
is as big as the wagon load exhibited last
j-ear by Dan Jones at tho Fanners' Fair.
Fi(tj--two cars weighs a bushel and the av
erage of the cars arc from eleven to thirteen
inches in length. One stalk of the corn we
noticed had two ears one of which mcasund
eleven and the other nine inches in length,
and the lowest car was upwards of se en
feet from the ground. Mr. C. says the com
was pulled from a row jut as it came and
that the whole field will run about the same.
The corn is worth seeing.

DevkSiu: The present congress, 1 be

diers home west of the Mississippi river.
Several towns juid cities are working to have
it looted within their precincts. Notably,
Hot Springs, .Arkansas, is now making her.
most plaiisiblejrepresentations for tho prize.
But we do not hear of Wichita doing anj--thing.
It is tin doubt an oversight on the
part of her usually observant citizents.
When we remind ourselves that tho cipen
diture of a quarter of a million in cash is no
insignificant thing for a city; and that the
notorietj- and disbursements attending the
administration oftho homo i also of groat
importance, we ought to be up nnd doing.
The Iord helps those w ho help themselves.
Wichita is located in a dry and salubrious
climate; just far enough south to be out of the
rigors of Minnesota and Ioua winter, and
not far enough to come into the debilitating
mabiri.i of Arkansas and Teas. Kansas too
was wliollj-loyal during the war, and has in
her population of 1,.j00,000 a erv much
larger percentage of c-union soldiers than
