NEW YEAB CALLERS.
Many Pleasant Calls and Eoyal Emtertalnment
The Young Ladles Hake it Very Pleas
ant for Their Friends.
Although there were not aa many call
ers out yesterday as on former years, those
that did avail themselves of the opportu
nity were amply repaid. It was generally
agreed-amongst the youne men that there
was mora enjoyment, and that there was
more genuine interest manifested in the
custom this year than ever before.
A great many kept open house to a few
intimate fi lends, and made the cheer more
than compensate for the absence of for
mality and numbers. It is seldom that a
uonuay passes aiioraing more genuine
pleasure to the majorities than did
A number of young ladies foimed them
selves into a club for one object. Each
lady was to prepare a list of young gentle
men friends for the ensuing year
and these lists were to be compared
last evening. A revised list was to be
made up from these and to contain only
such names as appeared on every list, thus
giving any young lady of the club the
power to black-ball any young man by
omitting his name from her list. The
young ladies entered into a solemn com
pact to adopt the revised list regardless of
consequences, and ignore any gentleman
whatsoever whose name did not appear on
the revised list. This revised list will be
published as soon as the reporter can get
possession of it.
At the parsonage of the First M. E.
church, the pastor, Rov R. T. Savin, and

church affiliations, called upon this popu

At General Murray Myers' ye reporter
was welcomed by Miss Kate Junkerman,
and was ushered into the delightfully fur
nished parlor, where we were pleasantly
entertained by the hostess and the Misses
Bessie Dagner and Gertie Lauck. With
the cheerful glow of the reddening coals,
the brightly burning lights, the pictures
on the walls, with curtins drawn, with
flowers blooming as with the breath of
spring, and three bright and smiling young
girls flitting here and there, welcoming the
coming guests, we thought we were gaz
ing into a beautiful room of Paradise.
After merry greetings of ''Happy New
Year," we were invited to partake of re
freshments. The table shono gaily with
beautifully decorated china, and our young
hostess poured for us a cup of that "drink
for the gods," chocolate. After partaking
of the generous feast we returned to the

At the beautiful home of W. T. Redman,
No. 1148 North Emporia, two of Wichita's
fairest juvenilis, Lilho Lewis and Cora
Lord entertained their young friends with
all the ease and cordiality of riper years.
Master Tommie Lord ushered the guests
from the sidewalk to the parlor, where
they were delighted by the sweet
piano solos rendered by Cora Lord. The
refreshments were arranged on a table in
the dining room and every guest was in
vited to partake of the precious viands and
fruits. They were neatly dressed and they
astonished their friends with the ease
and jjrnce displayed. A greeting to those
coming and a parting exhortation to those
letiring made each caller more happy.
The second place at which ye reporter
called was at the house of Mr. C. A. Van
Ness, No. 1205 North Lawrence avenue.
Master Earle Smith swung wide the door
and very gentlemanly bowed the callers
into the hallway where overcoats and hats
were laid, and then by the six affable and
winsome lassies conducted into the sunny
parlors whose bay windows were profuse
ly set with winter flowering plants, and
all appointments completing for the pleas
ure of the guests. The favors consisted of

names, adorned with a pea fowl feather
the hostesses of the delightful occasion:
Alice Van Ness, Mvrtle Sluss. Gertrude
Thomas, Sarah Foster, Daisy Nason and
Edith Mbffat. Each of these
young Misses wore a pretty
bouquet of flowers, carnations, Japanese
lilies, terns, hyacinths, and wreaths of
smilax were among the favorite selections
from Flora's best gifts. Refreshments
were served with all the delicacy of the
most skilled in the art. Through the
kindness of Mrs. VauNess, who assisted in
all the necessities of such an occasion, the
entertainment was a great success. The
callers will loug -remember the attention
We hastened along through the bright
est sunshine that ever blessed the land,
while "the New Year in his leaf less bowers
is waiting for the winter's snow," and at
1315 North Emporia avenue we ascended
the steps of one of the brightest palaces of
comfort that blesses our fair city. The
steps were palatial, doors were massive
and the interior was a revelation. Broad
winding stairs of the brightest oak led to
upper chamber where guests divested
themselves of overcoats and hats. This
room was furnished in style suitable to a
princess of America; carpets rich, rugs
fine, furniture elegant, the decorations
artistic, the result was comfort.
Descending to the parlor we were greet
ed with the spirit of Happy New Years by
the fair and accomplished hostess aud her
charming assistants. "Thoughtless of
beauty, they were beauty's self.
Wide folding doors, richly carved, open
ed from room to room. To our astonished
eyes it seemed that the whole world had
given forth her treasures for their decora
tions. The mighty oaks of our Atlantic
coast gave their ancient monarchs, the
wild animals of the forests of British
America yielded up their warmest furs for
rugs, the mines of California surrended
her hoarded gold for gilded frames, the
marts of Europe send her richest carpets,
and the tropics of both worlds contributed
their sweetest flowers. Gay festoons hung
from the candelabra gleaming with scores
of brightly burning lights. Antique
rockers and upholstered arm chairs and
sofas invited to rest and comfort. And
the effect of all these was heightened and
strengtheaed by the hearty greetiugs of
the fair ones who did so much to make
this day memorable and to perpetuate the
time honored custom of New Years calls.
We were invited out into the dinning
room to partake of a feast that would
have gladened the heart of any epicure.
The table was beautifully decorated with
fruits and flowers artistically arranged,
the side-boards were loaded with meats,
fruits, cakes and ice cream. Our fair
hostess and each of her charming assis
tants vied with each other in making each
guest feel that he was the honored one.
After refreshments each guest was pre
sented with a beautiful silk memento on
which was printed in gold letters the name
of the hostess and her assistants, and gen
tle fingers deftly fastened them to the
lapels of our coats, and when these I
of 1S90 have been caref ollr I
laid away they will awake our memory of
this day in future year, and
"That memory shall brighten o'er the

Maude Pratt, white silk and lace; Miss
Hattie Hays, pink cashmere and black

rietta, black ribbons and velvet; Miss Ida
Rudolph, black silk and lace; Miss Adelle

The grandest and most elaborate recep
tion was tendered the members of the Y.
(M. C. A. by the ladies' auxiliary at the
home of Mrs. Geo. Knorr, 323 South Law
rence avenue. The house was beautifully
decorated with house plants, festoons of
princess pine, pots of flowering Japanese
lillies, pictures "and bouquets. The com
pany was very large. The parlors, halls
and dining room were filled the entire
evening. Strains of sweet music
and song Hilled the whole house
as groups stood about the piano
or duets or solo3 entertained the coming
and going crowds.
It would be difficult to conceive of a
more happy occasion or any entertainment
which the kind hearted ladies could have
provided. If the young men of Wichita
could not appreciate such loving kindness
displayed it would not be possible to
bring them within the benign influenceof
morality, church and Christianity.
The ladies of the auxilliary had provided
tables loaded with refreshments, merits,
turkey, bam, sandwiches, coffee, cakes
There was abundance and all the gentle
men callers enjoyed the occasion in the
highest possible degree.
The souvenirs were white satin ribon
inscribed "Greeting '90" and tie of gera
nium leaf indicating that the recipient
had "turned over a new leaf."

To ye reporter this has been afday of
surprises and of feasting. He felt it in
cumbent upon himself to see if the cook
ing club had good luck with their bread.
On ringing the bell at 1133 North Law
rence avenue the colored porter politely
invited us in and we ascended the steps of
a neatly carpeted stair to one of the most
tastefully furnished and neatly decorated
rooms we have ever seen. But wo were
anxious about that bread and did not tarry
long here but descended to the parlors.
Here we were met by the charming hostess
Miss Mignon Viele, who introduced us to
her lovely assistants. The parlors and
dining room were most tastefully decor
ated. Festoons of princes pine surround
ed the room and swung in gentle curves
from the center of the room to each corner
and to each wall. Windows were glowing
with flowers of every hue, their fragrance
exhaling on the air. Mantels were luxu
riant with green plants, blooming as in
the garden of Eden.
The table was a picture of perfection.
Fruits peeping forth from leaf and flower.
Bands of smilax adding lustre to the mel
low light of antique lamps. Brightest
flowers adding charms to the most dele
cate china and brightest silver. All these
were made more inviting oy a group of the
merriest and- most entertaining young la
dies that ever tempted mortal man to eat
food prepared by their own hands. That
bread was all right: we tried it. Wo ven
ture there has never been a supper given
in Wichita that surpassed this in the esti
timatiou of the quests. Salads,
coffee, cakes, angels' food nam
ed for those who make it,
salted almonds, pickles, in fact so many
things that one poor mind can not remem
ber them all, even if he did sample them.
"We ate, we drank, and in communion
We quaffed happiness and joy."
If success can give happiness this has in
deed been a happy New Year to the cook

THE BISHOP'S KETURN.
Rt. Rev. Bishop Hennessey favored the
Pro-Cathedral choir with a reception yes
terday morning aft the New Year services.
He bestowed praise for the good work
done by the singers during past ten
months against certain odds, well known
to himself and his priests. Some highly
amusing reminiscences were recalled by
him regarding his efforts to organize a
choir when stationed at the mining dis
trict of Iron Mountain, Ma, just after his
elevation to the sacred office. The visitors
were agreeably entertained, plans were
laid for future work, beat wishes were ex
changed, needed rebukes gently given, for
bearance requested of his reverence for
aught that may have been lacking in the
past, and all departed pleased and hope
ful and determined to give the musical
portion of the Catholic service aa appro
priate rendering during 1S30L The bishop
has just returned from a consecration at
SL. Paul and preached most eloquent ser-
mons on New Year' eve and morn.
THE GRAND FINALE.
A. Very Interesting Close of an Tateresttnr
Series of Entertajaaeafa at the J2m-
poria Avenue JSI.E. chorea.
A few months ago the young people of
South Emporia avenue M. E. church in
augurated a series of literary and musical
entertainments oneT fo be given every
other Wednesday evening for general
mental improvement and the. entertain
ment of the friends of the church. At the
second entertainment the house was filled
to overflowing, and so well pleased were
the ceople with the fine entertainment
given them, that the interest continued, or
even increased, to the end.
The ninth and ciosing entertainment of
this most successful series was given last
night. The managers made a signal effort
to make this, the closing entertainment,
the best of all, in which they were entirely
successful. The people anticipated this
and again filled the church to its utmost
After the usual devotional exercises the
program was opened with a comic recita
tion, well rendered by Master Oscar Green.
This was followed by music by Mill haubt's
orchestra, which was so delightful that
the audience would not be content with
less than three pieces from them during
the evening. Stock in this fine orchestra
went up to 219 per cent last night. This
band is composed of the following musi
cians: John Millhaubt, first violin and
leader; Albert Nix, second violin; Samuel
Dorsey, cornet; G. M. Brown, clarionet;
Richard Hartley, trombone; W. B. Bart
lefc), bass voil, and Jdiss Mary Brown,
Miss Lulu Dewey followed with a very
fine recitation, that was so well received
that she was recalled and gave the au
dience a very comical piece that taught
them how not to cut a rooster's head off,
and caused no little laughter.
Miss Minnie Dewey also recited a piece
that was among the best efforts
of the evening, and wa3 well
received. Something unusually good
was expected of these young ladies, from
the popujar reputation they have enjoyed
for some time as elocutionists, and they
carried off new laurels last night.
Miss Belle Waynick was a new candi
date for elocutionary honors, and right
well did she earn a high place in the esti
mation of that audience by the grand ren
dition of her fine piece. This young lady
is a teacher of elocution, and though she
has been in our city only a few monlhs,
she has a good class and already stands
high as an elocutionist.
Miss Amy Hays was among the elocu
tionary contestants and well maintained
her reputation as an elocutionist, for one
The piano duet by Miss Laura Nus3 and
Edna Kirkwood was very fine. The bass
solo by Charley Loveless, with the piano
accompaniment by Mrs. J. M. Monroe,
was well received.
The vocal duet by Mrs. C. H. Brooks
was one of the best musical productions of
The cornet and saxiphone duet by
Claud Neff and Charley Loveless was so
good that they were recalled and treated
the audience to something still better.
The D. G. Quartett club sang two pieces
which were good. This olub is composed
of J. M, Townsend, first tenor; T. E.
Weaver, second tenor; E. E. Townsend,
first base; J. F. Miller, second base.
In this case it may well be said that the
best of the wine was kept till the last of
the feast, for the program concluded with
Mr. J. H. Purdy, the elocutionist, whose
rendition of two very comical pieces was
near the climax of the whole evening's en
tertainment. He was simply rich.
At the conclusion of the entertainment
Mr. D. Smythe, the attorney, offered a
resolution which was heartily adopted,
expressing the thanks of the Young Peo
ple's society of Emporia Avenue M. E.
church to the daily papers of the city for
their announcements of the series of en
tertainments, and especially to the Daily
Eagle for the liberal space it has devoted
to announcing and reporting these enter
tainments, and to all the ladies and gen
tlemenespecially outside of the church
who so kindly offered their services and
whose superior talent was so highly appre
ciated, and added so much to the interest
and success of their grand series of enter
tainments. A LOST TKDK.
Yesterday morning early a well known
citizen was rushing frantically through
the streets as if he wanted to secure the
earth in a minute. An investigation
brought out the fact that he had good
cause for alarm, although everything
turned out all right afterwards. Late the
Dreceding evening a friend of his, living
in the same house, was about to leave the
city and paid the transfer company to go
and get his trunk. Owing to a mistake of
the servant the transfer took the wrong
trunk to the union depot. When his
friend arrived at the depot, not seeing his
own trunk, supposed it would bo late and
went on, telegraphing back word yester
day to hold his luggage here.
In the meantime the first gentle
man's trunk was left standing on
the platform of the deot without a
claimant. Securing the services of officer
McNainara the transfer man was soon
found and the trunk located. He at once
went to the depot claimed his trunk and
proved ownership. He next unlocked it
and took out some papers and entrusted
the trunk and the balance of the contents
to the transfer company to be returned. In
spite of the holiday it was not more than
half an hour before he had a bank official
out of bed and his papers safely deposited
in the vaults of the bank. He will now
defer committing suicide.
COLLEGE HILL. SURPRISES.
On last Saturday evening a large com
pany of the young people representing the
society and friends at Minnehaha Center
and Fidelity came from five to eight miles
to the M. E. parsonage on College hill,
bringing with them donations of money,
produce, feed, poultry, and subscriptions
of more to follow, and with their hearty
good cheer made the evening pass all the
more pleasantly because the surprise was
complete, and the Kansas zephyrs made
music without. And again on 2ew Year's
eve there came more than thirty of the
College hill friends, with no note of warn
ing, and the parsonage was theirs.
After a social reunion, such as these
good people know how to enjoy, thedox
ology was sung and they departed, carry
ing with them the benediction of grateful
hearts, and leaving behind them many
good things with which to cheer our way
as we go forth upon the journey that leads
to the home where the evening shadows
fall not and the years are no more.

WHAT THEr HAD FOB BUfSEB.
Just after dinner yesterday a number of
gentlemen were sitting in the office of the
Hotel Carey when a walk was proposed by
one of the party. The idea was discounten
anced by the majority in a minute on the
grounds of having eaten too much dinner.
This led to a discussion of how their
friends were faring for dinner, when one
gentleman produced a letter and read the
following extract: "Your uncle and aunt
will dine with us on New Years, and we
regret exceedingly that you are compelled
to be away from home. More especially
in the far west where they can't possibly
set a very tempting table. Remembering
your weakness for a good dinner we feel
for you." Now, said he, I am sorry I had
a good dinner and I do not deserve that
sympathy. Another proposed to send a
bill of fare to several of his friends who
would be solicitous about his wellfare,
but there were enough menu
cards to go round. The first
speaker then suggested the Eagle be re
quested to publish it and that motion pre

DEGREE OF HONOR ENTERTAIN.
The degree of Honor gave one of their
enjoyable entertainments last'nicht at the
A. O. TJ. W. hall and their guests were
legion. These entertatnments are famous
throughout tho city and as soon as one is
announced everybody flocks to the com
mittee for invitations. The hall was so
full that dancing was impracticable for a
part of the evening, but all seemed to en
joy themselves nevertheless. Although
the number in attendance fur exceeded an
ticipation the ladies were fully equal to
the emergency and managed to set an ele
gant supper for all and still have twelve
baskets of fragments left. Soon after
supper the hall became clear enough for
dancing and nearly everyone participated.
In the anteroom were several yery pleas
ant card parties. There was a variety of
amusements and pastimes, and when it
got near going home time, everybody
hated to go. This was pronounced by all
present to be the most successful and
pleasant social of the season. The ladies
of the degree of Honor earned the compli
ments that were showered upon them from
Grau's Opera company presented "The
Brigands" last night at tho Crawford
Grand to a full house. The company is a
large one and the piece is cast with great
care. The comedy parts are not so very
fat but the comedians manage to keep the
house in a constant titter. The topical
songs always go, and last night was no
exception. The audience was pleased with
the performance generally, and greeted
the principals with generous applause.
The choruses did credit to the careful
training of the lady musical director.
This afternoon "Viririnia" will be given
for a matinee, and the company will close
this eveninz in "Amorita," with a full
CHIP O' THE OLD BLOCK.
The "Chip O' the Old Block" wttl be
given at the Crawford Grand on Saturday,
matinee and evening.
"Chip O' the Old Block," was put on the
stage for the first time in Sacramento at
the Clunie opera house. We have bad so
much of the light comedies of late that th
public has been pretty thoroughly satiated
with them, but "Chip O' the Old Block"
possesses so many pleasing features wholly
its own that it rises above the level of the
fantastic creations referred to. It brims
0Tr with light and sparkling eongs, and
the music is freh and jingling. A plot is
interwoven iu the fabric of the play, and
the dramatic dialogues maxe the comedy
parts all the more acceptable. Scott and
Mills, the leading comedians understand
their business thoroughly and possess that
quality which takes so well with an aud
ience a natural way ot making every
thing they do seem so comical. Takinfl it
all the way through tho company is un
usually good and the play i3 worth going
to see. "Ex.

"Peck's Bad Boy" will open at the
Crawford Grand for one night only on
next Tnesday evening.
"Peck's Bad Boy" is a michlevous "ens"
and is a person who illustrates the fact
that a boy can be mighty mlschievious
and have a good time generally, without
being vicious. The hero is "bad" clear
through. In a certain way, but he is good
humored and kind-hearted, and his bad
ness is simply the result of high spirit,
which means that he Is jcot bad at all,

THE METKOFOLE'S NEW 1'KOPKIETOKS.
Tho management of the Hotel Metropole
changed hands yesterday to Casebeer 9t
Dean. Mr. J. E. Casebeer comes from Cin
cinnati, where for some years he has been
engaged iu the hotel business, and has
spent twenty years at It, mostly in the
state of Ohio. Some weeks ago he cams
to Kansas, and ha found 820 acres of land
near Udall, in Cowley county, that suited
his eye, and ho thought that good enough
to let someone else handle it mostly and ho
would get into his favorite business in
Wichita. The arrangement was made
with Colonel Stewart, and yesterday the
lease U a term of years with Casebeer &
Dean went into effect.
Mr. Dean is well known in Wichita and
to the traveling public in the west, and is
known as a ost efficient hotel man. It is
proposed to spend considerable money dec
orating office and dining room and in add
ing conveniences iu many particulars,
which to those of the present will make it
one of the most' aristocratic hotels of tho
state. The new proprietors taking charge
yesterday made themselves known quite
forcibly at the New Year's dinner Many
of the guests are young men in the city,
with parents" and relatives and friends
east, and have received many letters of late
wishing they could be home during the
holidays, for table enjoyment especially.
