Sallna believes in patronizing "homo institutions' In at least the theatrical line. Last Thursday was no exception to the rule. The opera house was filled on that occasion by a select audience to witness the play of "Esmeralda" as given under the supervision of tbe F. M. O. Club. The young ladles unquestionably are very much gratified at the re sults In a pecuniary point of view- as many good, solid dollars went i down Into the general fund from i this source; certainly every lady and gentleman present felt that they received full enjoyment for the moueyexpeDded. "Esmeralda" Is a beautiful society drama, where Is depicted tbe worth of true affection when brought Into coufllct witli the dross of gold. Tbe heroine, "Esmeralda" (Gertrude Powers), Is the daughter ot honest "Old Man Rogers" (F. U. Audrews), who loves the old home down In North Caro lina; the "Mother" (Ella Klugman) is a virago who cares for little else than tbe world's affectation. "Es meralda" is loved by "Dave Har dy" (Frank Hamilton) with a love that Is unbounded. "George Drew" (Ed WIttraann, Jr.) buys the home homestead from "Mother,, and causes great grief from "Old Man Rocem," "Esmeralda" aud "Daw Hardy." The family turn up In Far Is, aud the sceue Is different from that of good old Ellzah 'tbtown. "Esmeralda" I forced Into society by her mother aud becomes the fian cee of "Marquis Munlressin" (Frank Xorvel) through the manipulation ol "Mother." "Dave Hardy" cone from Xoith Carolina and there Is re joicing by "Esmeralda" aud lid father, who for the tirsttlme a-er. theuiKeives. There follow happi neas all along the lli'e, except wltl "Mother" whose plana have beei frustrated, but she finally accepted the situation when she discover "Dave Hardy" to be rich aud shi IHior. "All's well that ends well.' The play ends as it should, with r most happy denouement. Ver; important adjuncts to the product tlou was "Estahrook" (Frank Her ton), "Jack Desmond" (Frank Hun -mers), "Nora Desmond" (Oertrude Andrews), "Kate Desmond" (Clara Ibtebuck), and "Maid" (.Marie Nel son). It was a splendid combination. The Tohey orchestra (seven pieces) furuifched the music aud added greatly to the interest of the even lug. The room was suitably decorated. hoard of Education. There may be said to have been a meeting ot theboard Jast night just nuout fifteen minutes. Tbe finance committee failed to put in appear ance, aud as there was little else to transact than acting on claims tbe quorum Cor seventh) member con cluded to go to prayer meeting and departed. From this circumstance it may be divined that some very good people are members of the board of education of the city of Salina. The board will meet again next Monday night. The city superlnteudent, Prof. A. II- Owen, occupied tbe attention of the sig remaining members for nu hour. Tbe talk was informal,but was ou a subject of great Importance to the city aud was one which seem ed to put the board and the supcrin tundeut to their wits' ends. The matter under discussion was the overcrowded condition of tbe schools. The Professor presented a list of forty-two children whohad made application for admittance to the schools but who pan pot abso lutely be accommodated under the present arrangement. He also olTered a statement of a majority of grades, showing them to be filled to excess. Few are below their aoc-jm-modalion capacity, while others are above that condition in number of scholars. The defect existed not withstanding schools had been es tablished at the beginning of the school year. The Professor was ninob flt a loss how to remedy the exlstlug complaint. The Idea was broached of putting additional seats into the present rooms, but this pro posal did pot receive earnest con sideration. The board thought it advisable to provide for a mixed grade, In the South Park bullilng, and by thinning out the present grades from among those children who live convenient to South Park to supply the latter school and also to meet all demands. Tbe superin tendent was Instructed to furnish a list, at the next meeting, of children who can be apportioned to South Park, with a view of comingto some devised plan whab shall meet the emergency. Hence, parents aud those interested may see relief in the distance. Kansas TV eelejaa Notre.

Both prisoners were charged with disturbing the peace. The difficulty occurred at a dance last Saturday night on Seventh street, near the Missouri Pacific railroad, at the time of the cutting of Goodall by young Grant. It's another story with a woman in tbe case, or a num ber of them. According to the state ment of Goodall, Grant had been telling lies about Goodall and Mar tin, to the girls of the latter, and bad not only done this once but several times. Grant refused to retract. Goodall going up to Grant at tbe dance struck him with his fist and In return received the thrust ot a knife blade iu his shoulder. That ended tbe melee. The wound was not serious.
