The Odd Follows executive committeo reports a very successful financial ending of tho anniversary ball. Enough was taken in to pay all bills and leave a balance. Somo Newton folks took advantage of tho low rates during tho Odd Fellows anni versary to come to Wichiti to bay lots, but their gait was far too slow to catch on. In an accident which occurred on the C, B. A Q., in Illinois, Sunday, tho Chicago Tribune says Miss L. Briggs of this city, had her head badly cut and was seriously injured. All tho boys were asking Bishop Garrison yesterday when be was going to enter tho pulpit. He thinks he won't start out as long as Garrison's addition holds up and the canning factory pays.

So much for tho AVichita boom. Niederlander's grocery store on Douglas avenue between Topeka and Emporia, was sold yesterday by P. V. Ilealy, real estate agent, to a gentleman who is comparatively a stranger, but whoso name could not be learned. The building is twenty-five feet front and brought $12,500.

The Marriage of Miss Mattie R. Bradshaw to Mr. Grant A. Hatfield. Handsome Reception at the Bradshaw Rural Mansion The Guests, Toilets and Decorations. Wedding of Miss Lizzie Mead and Mr. G. W. Bartholomew. Tho broad portals of Mr. and Mrs J. F. Bradshaw's hospitable home, three miles south of this city, were thrown open yester day noon to about thirty guests, who thronged tho spacious parlors of the fine rural mansion to witness the ceremony and attend tho reception following the marriage of their daughter, Miss Mattie It. Bradshaw to Mr. Grant It. Hatfield, brother of Hon ltodalph Hatfield of this city. Tho fino country residence was handsomely and ap propriated decorated. Tho windows and mirrors were decked with wreathes of ever' greens and natural flowers. Tho bridal party stood beneath a bower of bloom, from tho center of which hung a beautiful marriago bell, from which hung a largo B, and H. outlined in artificial roses Tho brido and groom wero attended by Miss Minnie Abbatt and Mr. W. W. Toy. THE EHIUAL KOBE. Tho bride wore an exquisite wedding robe of rich whito crossgrain si!k, falliug away in panels on either side of a shining princess train of heavy pearlwhite dutchess satin sweeping tho floor in unbroken folds' Across the front drooped graceful folds of wcb-liko dutchess lace combined with point and adorning tho sides of tho robe with a jabot. The corsago cut hcart-Ebaped in the neck was mado with a beautiful collar of silver bro- crade, overlaid with laco and caught up with a handsome pearl pin. Two simple pins confined the light mists of tho tulle. which fell in puffs to the end of tho train, adding a rare touch of beauty to '.ho robe. In her hand she carried a large boquet of natural flowers. Her tall, graceful figure and tresb, blooming cheeks lent an air of dig nity to her person, and a flutter of admira tion ran through the assemblage as she en tered the parlor. Tho bridesmaid wore pink satin, with batiste clairo laco front, with applo blos soms, and she carried a boquet of flowers. rs tho bridal party entered tho parlor, Prof. Vrnold played tho bridal chorus of Lohen grin, whilo they took their allotted places. As the music died away, Itev. J. D. Hewitt, of tho Presbiterian church, stepped before tho expectant brido and groom and pronounc.d tho marriago service in a beautiful and impressive manner, conclud ing in measured tones with tho solemn in junction: "What God hath joined together let no man put assunder." At tho conclusion ot tho ceremony, tho piano, under the touch of Prof. Arnold's fingers, soundad the march from Norma, as the guests, after offering the customary con' gratulatlltns were ushered into tho dinner room, ivliero ono of the handsomest tables ever seen in this city was spread with a most exquisite repast. In tho center was a floral pyra mid of rare beauty. On one side of tho pyramid was a haedsomo vaso filled with flowers, and on tho other a silver fruit dish laden with tha same fragrant burden Threo magnificent wedding cakes wero ranged along tho table with dishes of fruits and tempting viands intervening. Tho dinmr was superb and after their invigorat ing ride of three miles through tho garden spot ot cedgwick county, tho guests wero ready to do it justice.

"J 'V11 f 3 That I shall do some wili extravagance of loT6 ; pabjjc; ma tho foolish world, which knows not tenderness, will think me mad." Mrri4 At tha rtiidcBce of the bid! parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Head, in this city, yesterday, at 1 p. m., by the Rev. J. D. Hewitt, George W. Bartholomew and Lizzie A. Mead, all of AVichita. "So learn ye, whose tows are plighted, That hearts are one wnen ineyre united." The ceremony was witnessed only by a few intimate friends and relations of the bride and groom. After a lunch, which was partaken of by all present with hearty cheer, the newly pledged pair took the train for a several week's trip to the Pacific coast and its principal cities and points of interest, they intending to stop several days at Santa Fe, and other New Mexico towns all, in their happy flight to the setting tun. The bride, who b tho eldest daughter of Mr. Mead, was, in her modest, hut rich at tire, as beautiful as the bloom of a spring day, whose soft light fell upon her bright and earnest face, and as sweet as the frag rance of the flowers of her trousseau. A happiness born alone of soul-content, shone in every feature as the friends of her girl hood crowded about with their congratula tions. It is said that over all men hangs a doubt ful fate, but tho Eagle has no hesitancy in predicting for its friend, George Bartholo mew, a life supremely blessed, with the loyo of tho gentle being whom ho yesterday Towed to cherish and protect, ever and all his own. Love: '"Tis the caress of cv'ry thing; Tho turtle-dove; Both birds and beasts do offerings bring To 3Iighty love: 'Tis th' angel's joy; the god's delight; Man's bliss; 'Tis all in all: without love, nothing is." ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND. That nine-word telegram addressed to tho editor of tho Eigle and signed S. It. Peters, is mighty interesting reading. Tho dis patch is short, but full of consolation. It means that one hundred thousand dollars of available funds are in sight, with which to commence the erection of the government building on the Eagle block, front south and east, back door thirty feet from the EaqleS mailing room. AVe congratulate our worthy congressman and both senators. AVo con gratulate tho people of AVichita, and we will tako a small space of feeling good our self. GOOD FOR COL.W1CH. Geo. AV. Steward and C. F. Hyde came in yesterday from Colwich with tho three petitions, each signed by sixty-four names, and all resident tax-pyers, certified to by Mr. Steward. As the boys would express it, "bully for Colwich," which by this ac tion has evinced a genuine spirit of enter prise not only, but that her people appreci ate tho advantage of building up a great city at AVichita, where for grain, hogs, cattle and all other produce of this valley, will find a market at Kansas City or Mississippi river prices. THE WATER WORKS. An Eagle reporter called upon General B. B. Eggleston, superintendent of tho water wotks, j'Csterday, and inquired of him if his business was booming with everything elso in AVichita. Ho replied in tho affirmative, and said the daily consumption now was about 500,000 gallons. He said tho company expected to bo asked by the city to extend their mains in tho northern part soon, as they had already done in regard to the southern portion. Ho said tho company now had 900 taps and 00 consumers. Taps aro being put in at tho rate of thrco per d4y. Yesterday they were tnppiig fur the electric plant at the Santa Fo depot. About two miles of main will bu Iai.1 in tho southern portion of town a3 soon as pO".bV, an I ery soon about the sim.i miiouM. would be called for in the nort'i. The new reservoir 7ill bo compkud i:i about two week,, which 'will enablo the company la supply 50,000 pple with water. PAPEK MILL. AT CERBV. Tbo article that a prxared in tho Eagle somo d.iys ago, concerning tLo possibility of starting a paper mill in Wichita or vicinity, proved to bo a pointer for the titizens of Derby. It cnused them to investigate their own facilities for starting up an industry of that sort, and tako measures that may result in tho establishment of a paper manufac tory, An engineer who examined their fa cilities for water power, sas that by dig ging a rftco one mile in length, a full of eleven feet can be obtained abavo high wa ter mark. Tbi was sufficient encourage ment for somo of tho business men of that town to look up tho chances fur getting up a stock company, provided a good man could bo secured to manage tho affair. A committeo of three, of which Mr. II. C. Tucker, a banker of that town, was chair man, visited Mr. Kanouse.a wholesale paper dealer in this city, lor tho purposo of gain ing information concerning tho matter. In reply to a question, Mr. Kanoue told the csmmittoo that it would tako nearly f jrty thousand dollars to put up a paper mill, with tho best machinery. It would at least tako this much to be prepared to make pa per equal to tbo eastern manufacturers. Tho committee was advised to never attempt the affair at all unless they should turn out product equal to any mill in the United States. If tho water power were sufficient there are all the facilities here to insure the successful operation of a first-class mill. Mr. Kanouso sajs ho has gained the secret of making tho "champion butcher paper." It is mado of rye straw, and at present tbero arc onlv two mills in the United States that are able to make it. Ho is willing to as sume the supcrintendency of a mill in this section and mako the new and valuable paper. THE HIGH SCHOOL.. There are six members in tho graduating class at tho high school this year. They are as follows: Misses Laura Woodcock, Belle AA'ells, Mollio AVilson, Nettie Uattan and Ida Guthrie, and Mr. Harry C. Dunbar. Tbey all have taken the English course, but some, however, have read considerable Latin. Tho class as a wholo is pronounced by tho principal as being one of unusual merit. They seemed to have learned long ago that there is no royal road to knowledge but patient work by the midnight lamp is indispensable Although commencement is over a month ahead all eyes are turned to that occasion. Arrangements are being mado for it. The thing that most disturbs the graduating class is the final performance. It has not been determined where tho exercises will be held but most probably not at the high school building as there is no room large enough to accommodate the crowd. COLE'S BIO SHOW One of the most sensational acts ot the unusually thrilling programme presented by Manager . W. Cole, this season, is the mid-air feats of the Silbon family, who, for several years, have been recognized as the premier gymnasts of the country. It is safe to say that no such soul-stirring leap as is that of Master Eddie Silbon, who plunges from tho apex of the canvas to the out stretched hands of his brother, who swings picturesquely on a trapeze bar below, has ever been seen in any age or country. The Silbons are justly termed tbe "four human meteors." Their standing challenge of $10, 000 has never elicited a reply from any con temporary aerial artists. The elephant will be here May 15. POLICE COURT. Simon Kebol, Tom Harris and AVHliani Kelly were all banished to the stone pile for drunkenness, and the latter for the addi tional charge c! being disorderly. Richard Doe paid his $3 for a plain drunk. Mrs. Lv T. Ewen. of New Torfc CStr. joined her butband yesterday, who ha been in us cjij tor some use inng aner b mlwtate jarert its. THE UREAT PAIR.

Onr com mittee aro still on tho war path, and will try to visit most of you before the week is over. Ilespeclfully, Murray Myers, Sec'y. SEVENTY-ONE THOUSAND TWO HUN DRED DOLLARS. Did anybody tako the pains to foot up tho total of tho real estate transfers yesters as appeared in the Eagle yesterday. Seventy one thousand two hundred dollars for ono day's operations probably was equaled by no town in the west, certainly not in Kansas. Wichita is not only the biggest town in Kansas when it comes to her daily commer cial transactions, but no other city can be gin to show such a boom, measured by her "ggregato " reaf cstato transactions. Will the Kansas City-Times please stop its gov ernor racket and pay closer attention to our real estate figures? BLIND BOONE. Tho entertainment given last night at the Presbyterian church by Blind lioono was well attended. All had read of the famous musician, and many had heard him tho one class expected a musical feast and tho other was certain of it. Long before tho entertain ment commenced ono could see anxiety de plated upon every countenance. AVhen Boone first appeared it is safe to say that many of those who had novcr seen him wero not favorably impressed. The continuous motion of his body, backward and forward, causes an unpleasant fieling to arifo until it is overcome by tho superior ity of the music. Like tho orator who has faults, but who is able to overcome them, beeomis more effectivo becau-o of his fault.", o with Boone. The constant nod that at first is so unwelcome could almost bo translated as being an ornament where he has had but a half a chance toexibit his real merit. The iej that dance away are made almost to staro at him before he has com pleted his first selection. To say that any one who has a speck of music in bis soul was highly entertained and went homo hap py is putting it mildly too mild indeed. He is certainty a freak of nature. To prove his musical memory, his mana agcr asked that somo ono play a piece on tho piano, and much to tbo supriso of many, said Boono would reproduce it. At tho re quest of all present. Prof. N. AV. Sickner re sponded with a difficult selection. Haying finished, "Boone" played it through, but in tho most difficult parts followed the air only. Ho represented almost every in strument of music, from the violin to the bass drum, on tho piano. Ho also imitated a tornado and did it excellently, as was at tested by tho hearty cheers ho received. A little girl, who sang some pieces, is a good vocalist, and added much to tbo entertain ment. LAWN TENNIS. Lawn Tennis bids fair to becomo the most popular out-door sports for tho coming sum mer. Of courao boating will come in for Its share, but it can be used when tenni" would bo out of the question, and hence will not trespass upon its time. The organization of a club of young men has already been started. Tho officers usual to any organization have been elected, and as soon as tho grounds havo been leveled and marked off, the field captains and other officers necessary in the progress of the game will be selected. No special costume has been decided upon, but all will wear flannel shirts, and such as nave tho physical developments will wear close-fitting knee pants. Tho ground which havo been selected aro on tho east sido of North Emporia avc nue, between Pino and Oak streets, which havo been secured at a small expense. No name has yet been given to the club. The first game is to bo played on next Friday evening. The officers of tho club aro Paul Ozane, president; C. L. Robinson, secretary, and G. W . Heller, treasurer. Other members are Messrs. Harry West, F. A. llnisell, B. B. Cushman, E. Dillett, L. D. Washburn, a H. Pool, Charles Miller and J. E. Hum phreys. The above eleven are the only ones who have yet joined, though ibirty-flvo or forty have declared their intention of doing so. The necessary nets, rackets, etc for two courts have been re ceived, but many more courts will be pro vided as the later accessions demtnd. Several private courts have been set up and the pUycrs are becoming rapidly prc- fecient in the game. Besides the above it has been learned that there is now a club for young married people being organized, which will be under the management of Mrs. Jack Lindermouth. Bro. Mr&socx. I am all at sea this morning. I knew Sunday that I was at Clearwater and preached to two very intel ligent audiences and yesterday I was sure of the same thing as I came up on the morning train, but upon reading in this morning's Eaglx that "the ReV. B. S. Garrison preached ia Clearwater, etc" I haye about concluded that "things is not what they teem." I am net quite sure whether this last cold wave is this winter, last winter or next winter. I have no doubt that our friend B. S. of the canning factory will he gratified at the Eaolk's notice, but I fear for the lots of identity and the Rip A'aa Winkle effect upon two of the Garrison family atones. Respectfully, Brr. A. E. Gaskuox. Tbe members of the Wotsasa Belief Corrs ara reccssted to meet at the residence oftbepreadect.Mrs.Iu K. Woccock, tha; aiteraooa for the purpose of eocpleiisc ar-j foetitG.A.S.ir. I AT THE OPERA HOUSE. The prize contest and elocutionary enter tainment last night at the opera house was certainly a very creditable performance. The contestants showed marked self control, and accurate drill in the elocutionary art. The contest was so close that no doubt the judges experienced trouble in deciding who should be rightly named the successful one. For some reason the decision of the judges was not made public. The three-act drama "Rebecca's Tri umph," was a decided success. Miss Lil lian Brandon, as Meg, a vagrant, sustained her part in a most creditable manner. She has a rich, full voice, and plays the emo tional with great success. Miss Clarissa Colemen, a spinster; Miss Lottie Butler, deserves special mention. The quaint Ka tie Connor, an Irish girl Mr. J. C. Bran dom seemed to be a favorite with the crowd. It would bo unfair to compare this per formance with trained professionals, but we frequently see troups whose acting on tho whole is by no means as creditable. Miss Brandom deserves great praise for the outcome of last night's performance. Wichita may be truly prcud of her the atrical ability. Tho large audience of last night will bo greatly increased whenever Miss Brandom chooses to appear again. Bounds of applause greeted the many strik ing features of the play. PERSONAL.. H B Nickerson, superintendent of tho Santa Fe, was in town yesterday. Mis3 Jackson and Miss Peterson, of Newton, who have been hero a few days visiting Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert, receiver of the land office, left tor homo last evening, Father Casey leaves this morning for the Catholic conference, touching the divid ing of the diocese and tho location of the new Episcopal see, which convenes at Leav enworth to-morrow. Misses Agnes Lynch and Mary Mc A'icker left by train for Kingman last eve ning to join Willie Lynch and others who had gone on by wagon. They havo a com plete camp outfit along, and will proceed by wagon to Sun City, where Miss Lynch has a claim which she will inhabit for a while. They propose to have a regular high time. GRACE HAWTHORNE. This charming emotional actress will make her first appearance in this city on Monday night next, at tho opera house. lie reper toire will embrace "Tho New Camille," "Oliver Twist" and "East Lynne." Miss Hawthorne has just finished a brilliant en gagement at tho Gillis opera house, Kansas City, and returns from a phenomenally suc cessful tnur of tho Pacific coast. She is an emotional star of great merit, and comes supported by a powerful company who have been associated constantly with her for tho past two years. MAGISTRATE'S COURT. On Monday last there appeared before 'Squire ATalkcr one Richard Roe, who plead guilty to having charge of a joint at tho corner of Fifth and Douglas avonues. Tho usual $100 fine and thirty days were admin istered him. The cases of tbo stato against James L. Moore and August AA'agner, for running a slaughter house so near the city limits as to make tho odor arising therefrom very of fensive, havo been commenced in 'Squire Thomas' court, but were continued until tho 28lh.

It is said that black will be more generally worn and more fashionable during the present and the coming seasons than for several years, Its possi bilities of various arrange ment seems to hae been dis covered anew by those who have discarded it for colors some time since, and there are some authorities who even go so far as to say that the fash ionable world will soon be plunged into a season of unre lieved sombreness. This seems hardly possible, glancing now at the magnificent display of brilliant colors that greet the eye in the windows and on the shelves of tho fashionable dn goods house of Innes & Ross. They are also prepared to suit tho taste of those who prefer to wear the dark colors. They are showing some beautiful black silks in gros grain, armure, faille, Francaise, etc. There are a large number of ladies who wear black silk from choice considering it at once more quiet and elegant, and possess ing a style that no color can claim, especially when trimmed with those rich garnitures of jetted bands, steel and dull leaden beads, front panels and lace decorations. Admitting that tho greater part of the above is tho correct thing, there is no renuon for ex cluding colors from one's ward robe, and it will be diflicult to THE ABOVE IS TAKEN FROM THE LATEST NEW YORK and PARIS FASHION JOURNALS, and the MATE RIAL CAN BE FOUND AT INNES & ROSS, isrxTRO.
