Sheriff Hayes was called Sunday to Hun new ell, where the authorities had arrested a member of a horse stealing outfit, and thought that tho horses he had in his posses sion at the timo of the arrest filled the discription of some that had been stolen from this city.

Among the festivities enjoyed m the me tropolis Saturday evening, was one of highly delectable character, arranged by Messrs. Howell and Man "Warn. It took plae on the new steamer, -'Eagle." All being ready Captain Dennis gave the command and Pilot Barley placed the boat at the wharf designated by the lessees. Tho in vited guests boarded her, and then lwgan a "picnic" which will not soon be forgotten by the participants. They steamed up and down tho river, and the easualobservers that liued the banks for some distance, seemed to come in for a share of the pleasure, listening to the music both instrumental ami vocal provided for the occasion. Before this part of the program became monotonous, they lauded at a beautiful grove on the east bank of the Arkansas, and then a collation of goodies, "good enough for the gods," was served by the ladies. After thor oughly refreshing "the inner man," the music again reverberated through the forest trees. "The tiddler being ready his Arm being strong, They danced on the Sod for one hour long." At the sound of the whistle they reassem bled on shipboard, and headed for home, and as the journey was retraced the merry songs and peals of laughter made night glorious. A safe return was made, an expression of satis faction manifested by all. and thus ended one of tho happiest events of the season. Messrs. O. C. Daisy and Richard Tarlton have returned from Minneapolis. They think for pleasant weather, big fish and loads of fun, that is the place. ' -.- ' 1 INSTITUTE NOTES. Yesterday was a regular scorcher, it was wann in the morning, warmer at 10 o'clock and boiling over at 12 o'clock, everyone be gan to show the effect of tho weather but still the exercises went on as usual after the opening exercises, but still it was hot. The arithmetic classes were well attended J and the question of percentage was well ex plained fey Mr. Joy, but he looked hot while going through the exercises, but the class seemed to ignore the weather and exerted themselves to the l)Cst of their abilities. The class in penmanship worked by music, having the organ played by a member of the Class to assist in keeping time. All seemed to catch the idea and made the lesson very profitable, but the weather was so hot that everj-one looked very meek at the close. Physiology is as attractive as ever, and the numbers on the increase, as it is a branch that has not been looked into for a longtime, but now every one has to be examined in f physiology before getting a certificate, but all are improving. Yesterday the chemical properties of food were given, and other points of information which were good but every one seemed exhausted at the end of each recitation, but by the use of fans and plenty of ice water they would recuperate by the time they got to the next they are ready for the next exercise. The class in constitution was very prompt with their replies and questions. The sub ject of bills of attainder, postfacto laws, and a number of the ow ers of congress given as well as a number of items of importance in state rights, also the treat' between England and the United States that is now pending, also the acquistion of territory and -the cost of each, and some other points were explained that were good, but it was getting to be ter rible hot by this time and every one struck for the ice water, but it was soon drank up slick and clean and the i est had to take it straight, it might be very health' but it was not. The time of recess was taken up by the members of the institute in fanning them selves with fans, hats, books and papers everything that would cause a commotion in the air. so that when the bell rang every one found their place and the class in Philosophy took up the subject of pneumatics and the ac tion of air and g.ases was explained, different kinds of pumps, also the barometer was de scribed. The class in granimcr w as visited, but it was so hot iu there, just think every seat full, about twenty boys standing around the room. The windows were open but tilas there was about four young men in each window that cut off the only supply of fresh air that wo could have had at any price. Keep out of the windows boys-. Geography was conducted in an interesting manner. That mysterious question of the tides was discussed, but I hardly think it is settled yet. The class in leading had an exercise with cards, showing the manner of teaching small children, which will be continued. The class in bookkeeping had a good reci tation, and the process of posting Avas weil explained, so that most of the books will be posted at the next meeting; but how hot it was in that room! Every one was glad to make a change, and when the institute closed every paper collar had wilted and the young men that generally come here looking so sweet, with then hats sticking on about three hairs, and looking as though they had just been taken out of a drawer, were terribly dc 11101 alized in looks, paper collars wilted and handkerchiefs wet with mopping their noble brows. As for tho young ladies, that usually look so good and sweet that every one has a great amount of regard for them, they looktd as though they were eutiieiy sick of this world, for spit curls and bangs would not remain in place; and if their had been any of the young ladies that were given to painting, it would have been discovered. But everybody says it is hot; so I say. Mr. Thomas Clark, of Millstone, Pennsyl vania, arrived in tho city a few days ago, having started west with the avowed inten tion of visiting Wichita to see what all that "boom racket"' was about. He says it did not take him long to see w hat was tho mat ter, and as evidence that he comprehended the situation he invested largely in real estate. He says tho city is even more than its "boom ing reputation"' in the oast. He left last even ing for a few days' stay in the western part of the state and will return to the city and remain some days. Look out for our price list on groceries.
