and vivacity into the character as to com
pletely captivate the audience.

piece of actiug.
H. B. Emery, as William Peace, scores an

Mathias. as Rose, was decidedly good.
Walter Adrion gave a pleasing rendition of
tho character of Jemmy, and Mrs. Mary
Putnam's Mrs. Hcmpfaroier was well receiv

turns on the simiJiarity in appearance of two
men. They are constantly oeing lawm 101
one another, as tho two Dromios are in the
"Comedy o Errors." The audience was
kept laughing all the evening at the mistakes
made in the identity of the two leading char
acters impersonated by 3Iessrs. J. C. Stewart
and Paul Dresser. The support was good,
and the audience showed its appreciation of
the efforts of the company by frequent and
well menteu applause.

Market and Fir it streets. Tho president,

Yesterday bsing tho anniveisary of the
Bank of Wichita the officers of that institu
tion made a geueral siing-up of its business
for the ear. Every tiling w as found in ship
shape, and the shoeing entirely satisfactory
to the stojkhoMi.r.s. Mr. W. P. Robinson,
tho president of the bank, tendered his resig
nation of that podtion, and Mr. J. G. Fish,
of Decatur, 111., one of the btockholdci s of
the bank, was selected as Mr. Robinson s suc
cessor. Mr. Robinson's withdrawal, we un
derstand, was occasioned by the fact of his
unavoidable absence f 1 om tho city a great
part of the time, and the growing business
of tho bank making it necessary to have an
acthe man upon the ground all the time.
There were no other changes in the manage
ment of tho bank.

A SEW STEAM liAUNIIKV.
For some years Mr. J. L. Hanuey, of
Jacksonville, Ills., has been a traveling man
and visited Wichita ever' month regularly.
He had a chance to see the development of
the city, and finally became so favorably im
preseed that he concluded to locate here.
About three months ago he decided to sot up
in tho laundry business here. Ho secured his
lo-ation iu a quiet way on Wichita, street,
between First and Second streets, aud im
mediately ordered machinery. A month
later he commenced tho erection of a suitable
frame building, and by tho time the machin
ery sent for had arrived, was prepared to re
ceive it Tho bill for the same was some
thing over $2,000, and he expects to add
other as tho trade demands it.
At present he has on hand a washer, collar
aud cuff shaper aud shirt machine. A collar
aud cuff starching machiue aud extractor.
The drying machine contains near seven
hundred feet of pipe. Everything is run by
a twelve-horse power engine.
All the machinery was made and put
together in Chicago aud is in every respect
represented as first-class. Everything will be
read for business by tho last of this week.

priate address, presented to their genial host
an elegant gold-headed cane. After he had
taken his scat Mrs. F. Koenig, after making
ahort speech, put upon the finger of Mr?. S.

A CHANGE IN THE OKDCIt OK THINGS.
Mr. J. Becker, a farmer, w ho lives about
ten miles northw est of the city, comes iu
town with a rather extraordinary story. It
is not by any means discredited by anyone
who knows him or are acquainted with the
circumstances that tend to germinate the
state of affair.
He starts out by saying tiiat tho electric
lights in Wichita afford mora light in his
neighborhood than they do even in this city.
This being the fact, all the people in that
section have quit working in the day time,
but attend to all business matters of import
ance at night, when the lights give such a
This is not all of it The cropa have
adopced the new order of things, and are
getting in their last licks during the time
that constituted the old fashioned night.
They smilo the ordinary daylight out of
countenance and suspend operations and
cast a look of derision at the sun.
The reporter did not hear Mr. Becker say
the above, but 'received his information
Died at her residence, No. 280 South
Water street, October 6th, at 1:30 a. m., Mrs.
Emma J. Spaun, aged 48 years.
Mrs. Spaun had been a patient sufferer for
years from what prononnced itself rapidly
within a few weeks as a mortal sickness.
She came here from California, in hopes of,
getting relief, but it only came in the way of
the dark shadow that has bereft Tier three
daughters of a most tender and devoted
mother, a wise and affectionate counselor.
Mrs. Emma Spaun, since her brief residence
here, had won to her a large and devoted
number of acquaintances, who admired her
for the many endearing qualities or Drain
and heart that go to make up the truly re
fined and elegant lady.
The two remaining daughters, Misses Jen
nie and Laura, have the never to be forgot
ten consolation of having been constant at
her bedside and with loving caresses caught
the last fond look from the fading vision of
their dying mother.
Another sister, Mrs. George E. Greggs, of
Chicago, has been telegraphed and upon her
arrival the funeral will bo made.
The deceased was a cousin of our old and
popular townsman, Mr. Henry Spaun, w ho
was in constant attendance at the house and
with his well known sympathy lent all his aid
A large number of friends are in full sym
