Ernest Schilling, the male party to the unfortunate New York coachman elope ment match, which has turned out so poorly, thinks he knows when he has had enough of a peculiar line of experience. He was asked Sunday if he would get a di vorce and marry again. "Not much," he replied, "I'm out of the business. If a wo man came to me with a basket of gold and sat down upon it and said, ' 'take me and the basket,' I would tay, 'not much.' I would not marry another t oman. I don't care how irood her references are." A MIXED ROOM. Better than all, Empoiia litis never had a mushroom boom. Emporia Globe.

Mr. Charley Eichholtz writes us a com munication in which he claims, substan tially that he was defeated for the nomina tion for representative by a trick and in which he says that he will therefore make a direct appeal to the people, which fact he desires us to announce. This is the first intimation that we have had that Mr. Car penter's nomination was not in every par ticular satisfactory to the nominating con vention, and this intimation comes from a defeated candidate. AVc guess our friend Charley must have been a little mad and that he will think better of it. The truth is and he ought to appreciate it there are very few defeated candidates who ever think that they were beaten just quite fairly. THE NEW D. 31. A A. COMPANY.

A line to Iuka, Pratt county, will be Luilt this fall A LIVELY RAILROAD RACKET. Kansas Citj's First Howl a Senseless One. From the Kansas City Journal. For more than four months the Missouri Pacific railway company has been endeavor ing to secure from the Kansas railways a rate on freights to all common points in Kansas corresponding with the rates to the Missouri river. Failing in this, rates hare been made on the Fort Scott and Wichita railway to Wichita that are the same as those to Kansas City on the main line, the rates to both points being from St Louis. These rates have-been established through Mr. E. A. Smith, formerly the Missouri Pa cific freight agent in Kansas City, who has been working to bring about this end since the refusal o the Kansas railway companies to make rates that would leave them nothing. The Kansas City merchants who so gener ously gave 50,000 to the Missouri Pacific to close the gap between Paola and Kansas City are feeling that they have been unfairly treated to this discrimination in rates,which, adding a distance of 200 or 300 miles to the haul, places so entirely at the mercy of St Loui, is regards the Kansas trade. This discrimination can, however, very easily be remedied by the merchants of the river towns, as the withdrawal of the river busi ness from the Missouri Pacific and its distri bution among the other lines, would stagger that corporation to such an extent that there nould soon be a restoration of distance rates. The Frisco is a St. Louis road, and having no Kansas City connection, works for St. Louis trade, and yet it has not endeavored to make a war in rates in the territory it reaches. "While giving low rates there has been no attempt to ruin business. This first blow by the Missouri Pacific may nossiblv lead to a demoralizinz war that will 1 cause Wichita merchants to whimper more than they now exult, especially wnen tney find that the wholesale trade of that city will be ruined by rates that will allow smaller dealers to pass by them to St. Louis. In the evont of a war consumers would not be ben efitted, and they should not be deceived into encouraging any such state of affairs. The action of the Missouri Pacific in this is a direct blow at Kansas City. A small one, it is true, but one that shows her intent toward the great railroad center of the west. Should Kansas City merchants withdraw their patronage from that system we may expect a fight that will work Kansas more injury tlian it can possibly do good. The Kansas roads, on account of their de IK'ndencc upon eastern roads, connecting at Kansas City, Atchison and St. Joseph, will be forced to take a hand in the inelee, the ro bultof which must bo apparent to any ship per. It remains to be seen an hat Kansas City merchants will do. This move m the part of the Missouri Pacific may possibly hasten the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe connection with St. Louis and Chicago. Indeed it is probable that this will be so. The hand of the above is the hand of the Journal's Topeka col respondent, but ili voice is that of a railroad whose grip on Wichita is glowing nerveless. Has Kansas City, and the railroads terminating there, been concluding all these years that the Eagle's talks and plans for Missouri pool rates for Wichita but wild vagaries? When thcEGLE kept reittcrating for mouths that the Paola link was more directly in the interest of Wichita than in that of Kan sas City, did the people of the latter place think we were joking? The threat that the Missouri Pacific in taking care of her share of Wichita's east ern trafiic as against the Frisco, will bring on a war which may cause Whichita mer chants to whimper, is a ridiculous threat at best. There is a Kansas City, but there is also a city of Kansas. The city of Kansas is Wichita, which city the Frisco railway reaches, but the Frisco does not reach Kan sas City of Missouri. The Missouri Pacific reaches both Kansas City and the city of Kansas, and that the other lines should unite in a war against the Missouri Pacific for taking care of her trafiic interests at as important a point as Wichita is nonsense. As for the Paola link, Kaus-vs City raised 9,000 only, and not .$.10,000. But even if she had wont the Chicago and St. Louis lines terminating at Kansas City play this new Paola link into Wichita as against the Santa Fe? Of course they will. Tie Journal's talk in that direction is but the whimper of a whipped child. As for Wichita's merchants tfiey will take care of themselves, at least mc Journal need lose no sleep on their amount. Kan sas City's merchants upon die other hand will withdraw their patronage from the Missouri Pacific only hen that road fails to make it to their hteres t to remain with it. If the Kansi City merchants should cut off their noes to spite their faces or to please the Sita Fe, they will find them selves noseless. That's all there can be to that preposition. Ay for the action of the Missouri Pacific hastening the Santa Fe's extensions to Chicago and St. Louis, that wouldn't hurt Kansas. Not very much. But how would it effect Kansas City? t One other point attempted to be made in the Journal is childish and unworthy an answer. Kansas roads from this time on will in no sense be dependent on connect ing at Kansas City. In fact, the U. P. and the Santa Fe are the only two Kansas roads which are tied up at Kansas City, and the Journal even in the above admits that the Santa Fe is going to get out and go to Chi cago or St. Louis or both. As for E. A. Smith, the man who has so summarily played smash in the estimation of the Journal, we take pleasure in stating that because of his smashing abilities and smashing proclivities he was elected by the 3Io. Pacific for Wichita, and that he is now a Kansan and not a Missourian as a man, but as a railroader he is for the Missouri Pacific and not Kansas Pacific, for the city of Kansas and not for Kansas City. Brethren, do you tweak? I'll ATT, KANSAS. To the EUItor of the Eagle. Not seeing anything in your valuable columns from this place for some time wc appreciate the golden opportunity of in forming your many readers that Pratt stands at the front with all the resources of commercial prosperity and bids fair to the coming future. Soon the iron hore rlll "trot"; then Gabriel's trumpet shall blow and resound to distant climes. , Baseball excitement has struck our city, ind bills fair to be carried to extremes. Nevertheless the boys have done nobly on Several occasions and now their reputation is won. On hist Wednesday our boys jplayed an interesting game of ball at "Niu- nescah. The contest closed in fayor of Pratt, the score standing 9 to 0 for Pratt. A good crowd attended and as it ended loud cheers rent the air when it was found how the score stood. i School will commence next Monday. Let all the parents that can send their child- fcn the first day. All that is necessary for a successful school is the hearty co-operation ol the parents with the teacher. Our city is being dotted here and there with some very handsome buildings, among them the magnificent structure of the new Presbyteriun church. A new bell was placed in the M. E. church last Saturday and now the hour of worship is signalled by its ringing. W. H. Thompson, of the firm of Clark, Thompson & Co., is spending a few days in Kansas City. The first annual exhibition of the Pratt county agricultural society will be held at the grounds one mile north of town, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, October 14, 15 and 10. The track is nicely graded, and will be as good a course as any fair ground. Arrangements are also in prog ress for a fund of amusement with which to entertain the people. There will be an ex citing chariot race, a slow mule race, run ning races, trotting races and other sports teo numerous to mention. Three hundred premium lists have been distributed throughout the county, giving all necessary information. A Rogers, who has been on the sick list for some time, is now convalescing. Rev. Richards, of St. John, preached for us on last Sabbath at the quarterly meet ing of the M. E. Church. Quite a large attendance was present both morning and evening. Miss Laura Jackman has gone to Win field where she will attend school for the winter. Quite u large number of our citizens drove to Cullison on Sunday last. Pratt is still achieving greatness. We boom! A Catholic church located here since the inducements were so flattering among our friends to locate their church here. There is at present no church in tow n belonging to that denomination, and the de sign to build a church in a central location so that it will be county headquarters for the adherents of Catholicity in this locality. The Pratt County Teachers' association to be held at Iuka on Jie 24th inst. will likely be well attended by our live teachers of this locality. Simpkins' Two Boyf. OUR FAIK. To the EditOT of the Eagle. Xsxt ilo.nday the creat fair of the state of Kansas opens at Wichita. The pros pects for a large aud successful fair sur pass our most sanguine expectations. Ap plications and inquiries are pouring in upon us from all quarters. The Michigan Buggy company will be represented with some of their fine work. Another party writes for twenty-five hog pens to be reserved for his car load of porkers. Another firm wants coops for seventy-five chickens. Another party has engaged eleven stalls for cattle, and another fourteen stalls for cattle. All of the above applications are from outside of Sedgwick county. Our horse and cattle stalls in our four large stock stables arc very nearly all engaged, and the applications for space in the agricultural and other halls are pouring in larger than on any of our previous Jyears. The side shows will form an attractive feature this year. The great panorama of the battle of Gettysburg. will be on our grounds. The dining halls will serve up good metis and more privilege can be pro cured. The baby show will also be an attractive feature to the contestants; lirst, second Mia third premiums for the handsomest babies under 12 mouths, and lirst, second and third premiums for the handsomest twin babies under 12 mouths. 1 he hand somest gentleman over oO years of age will have an apportunity to win premiums.

The line display in boots and shoes, stoves, ranges and hardware goods w ill be largely and artistically represented by our leading merchants. There will be no lack of variety; the applications for space are too numerous to mention. The facili ties for visiting the fair will be better than in the past. The street car company ex pect to have their track laid to the gate of the fair grounds this week. Farmers will please bear in mind the samples of grain and grasses to be sent to the state board about four quarts of cereals and of grasses a small bundle, say three or four inches in diameter. Sedgwick county can head the list. A committee will be on the grounds to receive and take charge of the samples. The grain can be put in muslin sacks and brought to the fair. Give us your best. D. A. Mitchell, Sec'y. ANDALE ANTICS. To the Editor of the Eagle. One of the most profitable rains of the season fell on our portion of the globe Sat urday night.
