A TRIP TO KANSAS. I'p o lloom KaniM City. "Blessings brijrlucn as they take tlir.ir fight." The good that yesterday wo received with halt' repining and hut scanty thankful ncss because it was not greater, to-day wo long for and will not he coint'o.teil because we hud never counted its value until it sltpixul ur crasi) forever. Vu looked trom the windows ot St. James Hotel that dark and stormy morn ing walch'mir the muddy rivulets of water me rtnderint: over the streets and thought hon- much more reigned to the inevitable we might have In ou had no tantalizingly laiuuti ful Iroatn of the cloudkus sky of yesterday flitted before our vision. We listened most discontentedly to the soft dash of the rain on the panes and wondered how potts could find any music in .such discords, lor every drop crenied to add certainty to our gloomy convic tion that it would be impossible to go down town unless we were willing to face rctr'.bti tion in the shape of draggl-d skirts, damp t,hocs and t-osib!y a serious cold. We rcnu m. bered, and there was bitterness in the memory, that no womau has ever possessed the sublime gift of managing her inultitudioiw draperies with grace or her umbrella with ease, and w ith this thought came the distressing relied ion .sit 11 rave er witliout me 1101111 am i his pilgrim's stick must of Kocis.sity look over a city with superficial eyes. Our good fairy came to u in the shape of a roomy, substantial carriage under the charge of a gentlemanly driver who answered our manifold questions with nd'ability, and gave us unasked a great Heal of valuable informa tion. As if in answer to our fervent wish, the raindrops, which with !hccc ption of an occa sional ourburst of pettish fury had grown to be few in numbers and far between, troubled us no more and for the next four hours we rode up and down the sleep ascents and de scents of many streets looking with eager in terest over the business houses, the public edi fices, and the bonu s of tbeyoucg ami wonder fully energetic city which has redeemed its dwelling place from the " fastnesses of the hills" and built for itself a strange throne on the border line between two great states. "St ren cities claimed the Homer deuil Through which tlio living Homer begged Ids Oread." Kansas City is somewhat in the predicament of the famous poet in regard to rival claims, though it is hardly probable that she will soon unk into his condition of pitiable want, or that her sister owners will be forced in the near future to struggle for her sepulcher. Kansas City, Kansas on the plains, and Kansas City, Mis souri, on the heights, are twodistuict existences, one life; two marked individualities, one wed ded life, and alas ! unlike the Ideal union, some, what marred by conflicting interests, by indi vidual elforts and needless jealousies. Kansas Ciiy has a personality ull her own, not bor rowed, not copied from anywhereelse. Proud ly she has arrogated to herselfthe title of "The New Chicago" and though the claim is an ex travagant one, it. is true thai a portion of the mantle of the queen of the American conti nent has fallen upon her .shoulders. She hates stagnation. Life is ever throbbing through her streets reminding you of Chica go's great thoroughfares State, Madison and Washington. She lias redeemed her foethold trinu rugged hills and steep ravines. She has cut down the stubborn clay. She has forced the forbidding morass out of existence and lifted its low bed to thedignityof respectable soil in proper posit ion for the substantial foundation of a street or home residence. All nature was against her. all nature said to her, "Your abiding place shall not be here ;"but she only answered,"! (till clay." That answer decided her destiny and set her teet firmly upon the path that leads toward victory. You feel more vividly per haps than you ever felt before what a glorious thing it is to struggle tor and conquer, as you look up to those formidable walls and columns of clay looming thirty, forty and eighty feet above your head cold, delimit, haughty in their marble hardne-s, and remember that Kansas (hty Iris wrested a!in.st every foot of her territory from the grasp of such a foe. The plucky men who have rocked this city in the cradle of her infant poverty, watched der steps and moulded her ehara'-ter through an unpromising childhood and who now re joice as she enters upon the upward, glowing path af ra liant youth are more than willing I' i complete the good work they began in tin long ago by the liberal useoftimi! and money. Poor men wlm InIicvs that (!od has given them at least one right of which they can nev er be deprived, the sacred right bv the toil of their hands given to the service of another in return for a fair and honorable moneyed com pensation, to provide for their birdlings a hap py home nest secure from want, find in Kansas City an abundant and fruitful Held for their elTurts. Thus capital and labor in blessed nr. cortl g' ant nan 1 in had to till up the deep val leys and level down the high hills, making both the glorious gateway through which shall Row the mighty business current of the West. The grading which is buch an imnerative and essentia! feature in the growth of the citr is roi imiy inoorious uui aisu very expensive. The preparation of the lot on which the new post dlice will soon lift its stately head cost $ )000, and the grounds for a private residence located very near this hit amounted to $70iK). Necessarily this has greatly increased the value of property and ho who expects to either pur chase or rent a home in Kansas Citv must draw somewhat heavily ou the rcnourcea f his pocket-book. IxniKing at a pretty house of roiiiioruioie, yei. vrry mou.-s. dimensions, en titled by a tasteful yard of moderate capaci ty, we opened our eves somewhat widely when told that the people who desired to make their castle within its walls must pay $;oi) per year for the privilege. Possibly the fact that tlii cweuiug manus in we heart or the most aria tocratic portion of the city with upleudid rel dencei leaking down upon it from every side lias given to it a value never by reason or ommon sense iu own. out undeniably the rit i'to uiiiiu new m property consiuera- ioqs run lurougu me wuoie city from its nal aces to its hovels. Ten years ago a lone-head, ed man with a little extra change might have bought the plains on which Kansas Citv Kan eaa, now standi for $1000. Today We dare ot esiimatetue wealth that happ- man wculd possess had he effected the transaction Yet even here, where so many rub the lamp of fortunate circumstance to find to their iov that the slave, wealth, baa answered to their amnions, there are unfortunate .j doomed localities who never have and sever will learn the art of rubbing the lamp. wJl i..,i.f r ,i,ia i,,Mi ,ik- g rode down tho Grand Avenue.

Tho-c linns import their foreign goods directly from Kuropc and carry on an extensive wholesale trade, supplying many bouses m Kansas wi'h their entile stock. The sales of each firm amount to from three .quarters of a million to one million dol lars yearly. All their windows are fascinating studies in color and soilness and harmony of outline, tor these are tilled with han l-ouie toi lets, rich iind costly fabrics m velvet, silk and wool and the charming nothings which go so far in making a woman's costume . wqnisite. PossiUly .Mr. Finery's establishment excels that of bis rival, .Mr. Sinith, in this Particular teature and for Ins rare skill and taste- in mak ing the drapery of his windows an irri-sistable temptation to leminiue tastes and feminine purses. The gentleman who performs thin work receives the snug salery of $100 per month. What would have been ulinot.t a miracle four years ago is now scarcely a nine days, wonder. All business portions of the city are within telephonic comuiunicotion and many houses constantly use it. Wo were surprised ti liud that this city, which seemed to be the very impersonation of energy and whose watchword was constant progress, bad constructed no fountain, bad erected no statue, hud planted no trees or Dow ering shrulis on the ouly ground which was the common property of all its citizens. We looked for a wealth of bloom and green luxu riaiiee in the public square; we found a tree less, grassless, desolate waste of ground, occu pied solely by movers' wagons. Our surprise deepen -d into amazement when we learned that in!y a short time before the space covered liy tlihsc grounds was a valley eighty feet, be low the, level of the road over which we were traveling. We weie comlorled. The indom itable will which rolled ihat ravine out into a plain will som.Mlay make it, blossom as the rose. Never ilkt a city )ht with mote fairness than Kansas Cily ol her beautiful fair grounds. Dull to all hively forms of nature mu.st be the eye which can look unmoved upon this forest domain of agricultural skill, .lust here our guide whispers to us a most lilting and grace ful fact. These grounds belong to the fairer and gentler part of humanity. They belong to a lady and y her are leits.-d to the associa tion. A large, substantial and homelike brick mansion occupies the center of the grounds, surrounded by bountiful tin bards of Iruit trees and a garden where llowcrs give to the passeas by Iheir wealth of largrance and color without money unit without price. With dc licioil.i gentleness the hills roll up and away from tin; gate. No blinding, choking sand weeps up to your lipsand clings to your brww as you cnlcr lor every I'm it of the enclosure is carpi ted with a luxuriant turf of blue grass. Kvery building is adapted to its purpose mid kept in fast ill ins order. The gay ami cozy lit tle homes of the (',' 1'rt.is, Tim', .Inurmtl and oihers looked as if tiieir owners had stepped out for an hour and would return pres ently. Fvcrywhere were scattered seals for the weary. Tocrow n this lovely picture grand oid tree., true moiiaiebs of the forest, 1 died their massive trunks toward the heavens, showing in every movement of their stately lirauehes t royal lineage. ISeneatli their ..hall ows a poet might have set bis thoughts to w rit- ten and immortal music. The home-- o Kansas City in their settings of emerald green wire as fail as the homes which originate in the novelist's brain and that is saying a great deal. All that art and wealth and the thousand conveniences which make a modern habitation mole inviting than a queen's palace w as in the past century has hecn done to enhance Iheir charms. Around Iheir ..lately portals sweep lawns ol velvet soil blue grass, the most magnificent upon which our ryes had ever rested. Here and there are beds uf bl jssoms whose petals seem to have stolen the matchless brilliancy ot color trom the balmy tropical breeze... " So prodigal ol iheir tloral wealth are the happy possessors of these treasures that they have introduced a de lighllul innovation by placing beds of bloom between the sidewalk and street. The soli pink of great sea shells arranged in fantastic tonus in the luxuriant grass was a new and strikingly beautiful feature or garden oruaincu tation. often a graccl ul statue or the silvery music of a fountain lent new loveliness to the scene. We reinemlur one home which a prince might well have coveted, though, alas fur romance it, belonged to plain Mr. Smith. It looked down from the heights to the plain over a straight wall of clay fifty feet or more in distance, and commanded a far reaching vu w f the valley beneath. Far away with the ciiy sweeping like a crescent around it rolls like a slow and lazy giant the w ide grav Missouri. On the right Imt nearer rise abrupt ly the pctpcndictilar walls of clay, so like and yet unlike their far famed namesakes the Pali sades uf the Hudson. Winding dwn from Ihecity on the bill to the city on he plain is a lonjr stret-t trowded w ith Hlltiost t-v.-ry lorin of; carriage-son wheel from u str.--t car toaiJonk.-v cart.

I.ijrlit and gnice!ul a the fanciea of a dream are the columns which sup port the beautiful piazza. In those la-da of glorious blossoms the fairies might well build their palaces.

Judging from the past it set-las quite the correct thing. At a meet ig last spring it wu determined to issue a pam phlet stating all the facts concerning the town that any person could desire to know who con templated settling here either as a merchant, manufacturer or gentleman of leisure. Outside of three or four men nt one aeemed to take the slightest interest in the matter. The compilers of the book became discouraged naturally and the hot weather coming on, the whole subject was dropped. Throe weeks ago a meeting of the association was called. Two men attended. Perhaps the business of this fall may have made our people think there I uo need for the action eontf iiated Iit said Ansoeiatiou. It is certain ly true that all have had a splendid trade. But is it nil Ottawa can do? Is it all she wants. Is there any reason to expett that the trade of this cily, as it now stands, will ever lie any better than it has been this fall? Win r is it to come from? The majority of our merchants advertise no lunger, nor try to force trade into the city. The whole town depends on a few bonnes for all the advertising it gel. Hut tor a few men whom we could name in a very short amount of npaee, the outside world would not know but the town had become deserted. People may taik as they please, the fact in certain that although done pri marily for their individual interest, advertisers should be looked un by citizens of the towns where they reside, as public benefactors, ami they should be encouraged accordingly. One mer- chant who advertises cltcusively is worth to his own town and its people more than forty that never show themselves in print, and should le for this reason alone preferred, assuming that he is. of rutirse, a fair business mau In point of fact, he w, nine times out of ten.
