"Wild grapes, says the "old inhabitant," never

this year.
The 31. E. Church arc preparing to have a
strawberry festival and general feast on the
Cth of June.
Laborers have been engaged this week in
putting in a tuni-tablc and building a switch
to it from the depot.
"Have a shine, sir' and "Here's your City
Eagle" reference to our bird have been
the on v street brawls this week.
The freight depot is to be enlarged at once.
It is now the size of the one at Emporia, but
much too small for this city.
The first regular dray, pigeon-tailed and
Iron-bound, made its appearance on ourstrccts
last week, Pat Dolan, landlord.
Mr. Weslake, living on Mrs. Everett's place,
claims to have had a valuable black horse
stolen from him a few night since.
W. C. Walkcnshaw, an old Leavenworth
railroad man, Is here on the new reform move
ment to be made in the railroad postal service.
Black & Xixou have received from St. Louis
a large Invoice of oranges and lemons. They
are the largest we hnvc yet seen in this mar
ket. Do not fail to read the advertisement of
Abram Kelly, Jr., "Farm for sale." Mr. Kelly
has one of the best located farms in this section
of country, which he is offering very low.
IVork on the flouring mill was commenced
"Wednesday last. It is located near the switch,
south and west of the depot. According to
contract it will be grinding by the middle of
July.
Some barbarian sings barbariouly thus:
"I want to be a Indian, a Arapahoe or Utc ;
I'm tired of being a white man, and a unpro
tected brute." Granted, ns far as we are con
cerned. "We lmve received one poem at lat, but ow
ing to the author withholding his name we are
unable to publish. To insure publication it
requires a name as much as au application for
anv other insurance.
The Wichita and Southwestern railroad have
the contract for the shipment of government
freight to this point for forts south and west of
here. This compels them to immediately erect
another freight house.
T. J. Tctcr bought twelve acres, last Satur
day, off the southeast corner ol X. A- English's
addition, where the cattle yards are being per
manently built. The entire twelve acres are
to be enclosed immediately.
Wc counted thirteen new buildings, all be
gan within the last four days. The town is
growing so rapidly that a three-days absence
from any one locality makes one go for Ills
guide-book to ascertain his bearings.
Xow come Hayoen and King and claim that
they hauled the first load of freight ever
brought by car to Wichita. This matter is as
suming such importance that wc expect pretty
soon to devote nil our pacc to the discussion
of it.
A Texas man informs us that there arc
twelve herds of cattle grazing on the Xenncis
2ih, comprising about fifty thousand head, and
a hundred and fiity thousand have crossed
Bluff cre'ek, all wailing shipment from this
point.
The man Minch, who was drowned on Mow
Jay, was not found until Saturday afternoon
last. He had got fastened in the roots of a
tree, and was so disfigured by the water as to
be almost beyond recognition. He was buned
on the river bank.
Charley Hill returned from the east Monday,
after enjoying a plethoric mess of everything
pertaining to city life, lie also laid in enough
drugs to drug this market. Soon he will be
heard singing his sweetest song, which goes
on, "Come yc afflicted."
The force on the Big river bridge was trebled
this week and the contractors pledge the for
mal opening of the bridge for travel one week
from to-day. They arc building handsome
toll houses at the bridge ends, and tilings arc
"whooping" in that locality.
Fred. Martsolt is putting up a snug little
rookery for himself on his handsome lots in E.
1. Waterman's new addition to the city.
Fred's cottage by the river is modern, and
will adorn that side ever so much. Wc hope
he may live long and tenderly in it.
It is a safe rule that whoever gets "'grosser
koph," or big head, when elevated to a little
power, never stays long in It. Whoever is
afflicted this way, from an M. C. to a railroad
king, has n weak iittle spot somewhere in his
head that is active food for drivelling idiocy.
An indignant Main street merchant declares
that he "can walk with his coat on his arm"
from Wichita to Cottonwood Falls and hire
teams there and have his freight hero two
weeks sooner than he can get it by ear. The
complaint is general. There is something
wrong somewhere.
A lively competition among milkmen here
has reduced the lacteal fluid to a minimum of
six cents per quart. We sometimes think the
late copiousness has had something to do with
this reduction. It being a principal ingredient
not only in milk but in everything lately, wc
are safe to attribute it to this cause, and so wc
will.
Mr. Frank Babcock. of the State Jlecord, To
peka, left some of his gcninl at our office on
Tuesday last. He was hen- for the punosc of
working up the subscription of the J!eccrJ,and
we hope lie will receive all the encouragement
in the world of newspaperdom. He l a clever
hoy, well up in his part, and can scarcely tail
of success.
The amount of freight shipped to this point
by cars in the last few days is simply enor
mous. We tried to ascertain the figiires, but
the manner in which the few clerks behaved
while we were there convinced us that to aj
proach them for such an item, so busy were
they, would be suicidal. Wc will try to give
the figures next week.
Mrs. John Marshall, wife of "Curly" Mar
shall, died in this city on last Monday and was
buried from the First Presbyterian church on
Tuesday at 2 o'clock. She died in the belief of
a blessed Redeemer, and wc believe she is en
joying all the blessings of the skies. She was
attended to her last resting place by a large
concourse of sympathizing friends.
On the farm of Mr. James Royal, situated on
the classical (called Cow skin), happened, dur
ing the late heavy rains, one of those rarely
seen occurrences, a genuine water-spout. Mr.
Royal says, while he was working about the
hou-c his attention was attracted by a heavy
rolling noise and the sound of rushing waters.
Glancing in the direction from whence the
sounds proceeded he saw a dark cloud like a
column, within twenty feet of the ground,
from whence poured like a small torrent a col
umn of water as thick a a man' body. It
lasted about ten minutes, and swelled the Cow
skin in that time to a mad. roaring river.
It lias long been appareirt that a bridge was
needed acnxs the Little Arkan-a-- river neAr
Wichita. The complaint conies longer and
louder than ever from the other side, since, the
continued rains of late have made the river
imfordable for the la-t two weeks. This is a
serious drawback, not only tothe farmer over
there, who haul their freight from and do their
marketing here, but also to our dealers and to
our entire city in a business point of view.
The rich and thickly populated region lying
between the river- is a source of revenue to
the city which it is safe to say is cut off, owing
to the high water, for two month at least in
the year from trading at this their most access
able point, and either forced to go to Park
City or do without sometimes even the neces
saries of life. A petition has gone into the
board of county commissioners, the twenty
right names on it having been procured in a
single day, for a hridgc across the Little river
at or near the upper ford on Wcidncr's place.
The bridge can be located there, or at the ford
by Munger's, just where a competent engineer
determines is the most economical, safest and
practicable place to put it. AVe hope an elec
tion will be called at an early day to vote bonds
for this most useful and necessary object. Let
us have a bridge by all means, and let it be one
for all time not only subtantial, but ornamen
tal. The best of stone for piers can now be
procured at Florence, as cheap as our native
rock. We hope the commissioners will take
immediate action in this matter.
In the stirring inarch of events in this quick
ened locality none have kept up their end in a
business way with as great a show pt success
as the "Blue Store" boys. The firm of Hough- t
ton, Mills V Co., 77 Main street, is the fashion
able emporium of the Southwest. Clothing of
the latest cut and style, gents' furnishing good
in every variety and kind, are among the prin
cipal articles they vend. The latest "swell"
styles can be obtained here ready made, or
measures left and clothes returned on the
shortest time from New York City by express.
Samples of latest goods worn shown to cus
tomers "you takes your choice." Hats, caps,
boots and shoes, of the new pattern, arc also
sold or procured on order. When you desire
regaling yourself to a gentleman's complete
outfit you can do so by calling at 77 Main
street, where, with the rapidity of a drama,
you can shake your worn-out jeans and step
into the street with a plug hat on and a silk
umbrella under your arm. Of course you will
need other clothing to match.
Under the head of new advertisements in
this week's issue will be found the business
showing of the Florence Stone Company, J.
Exton & Tucker exclusive agent at Wichita.
Tills stone Is now accessible to all of our peo
ple, city and county. In quality and appear
ance it is unrivaled anywhere in the United
States. Wc are glad, and no doubt all here
are glad, of the change from wooden window
and door caps to the ornamental stone ones,
resembling marble and just as durable. Ex
amine their advertisement for a complete list
of what they manufacture. They furnish flag
ging in any size, aIo curbing, stoops, columns,
in fact all work pertaining to the best eastern
quarries. 3Ir. Exton is well known to our
citizens as an energetic, honest business man,
and wc are glad that he is selected as the agent
for this important enl crprise here. Fort Scott,
Osage City shaft, Burlingamc and Carbondale
coal will be kept also in yard by him, for sale
in any quantity. Ofllce for the present with
Shellabargcr fc Leidigh, near the depot.
Few business men are entitled to more cred
it for energy, business tact and zeal than Mr.
George Shlichtcr, our extensive hardware
dealer. By his industry and devotion to his
calling he has built up a trade and credit sec
ond to none in our state. He began here in
the midst of our frontier struggle and has
worked gradually and determinedly into the
front rank of our public-spirited citizens. He
has united with him Mr. A. L. Houck, a gen
ial, clever gentleman, of large means, untiring
industry and successful business experience.
These two are a team that are pulling the St.
Louis Hardware Store Into wide-spread popu
larity. Their sales per diem would astonish
some of our river wholesalers. Success con
tinue with them sav wc.
D. S. Mungcr led us exultingly through his
fine three-acre garden this week and showed
us convincing proofs of the vegetable produc
tiveness of Arkansas valley soil. He has been
using, for nearly a mouth, radishes, lettuce
and onion- gathered in his garden. Gooseber
ry pic is his latest ; and from vines planted last
fall in ins garden the yield was a quart and a
pint to the bush. The prettiest and most en
ticing place in all the surroundings of this city
is the elegantly kept garden of the kind-hearted
D. S. We only regret that others who have
large grounds do not likewise try to adorn,
beautify and turn to practical use so much of
God's-rich alluvial.
It affords us pleasure to announce to our
citizens and strangers contemplating building
here, that the firm of Reese & Sawyer, whose
advertisement will be found in this issue, arc
prepared to take contracts on public and pri
vate buildings, of whatever dimensions, and
to do work in the most modern and approved
styles. Messrs. Reese & Sawyer are among our
best mechanics, honest, straight-forward and
capable. All work done by them carries its
warranty upon the face of it. We earnestly
recommend them to our readers as among the
best mechanics in their calling. Their shop is
on Market street, near the corner of Douglas
avenue.
The soda water manufactory of Harris fcCo.,
an advertisement ol which will be found on
our second page, is doing an immense trade
here and at the surrounding town. Mr. Har
ris has already increased his facilities and pur
poses immediately starting wagons to make
regular trips to all towns south of us with a
view of supplying them with this innocent,
healthful and invigorating beverage. The firm
of Harris & Co. manufacture here the best arti
cle of soda wc have tasted anywhere, and we
arc glad to note their success.
At the regular semi-annual meeting of the
First Union Sabbath School of this city, held
oil the 4th Inst., the following officers were
elected for the ensuing term: Superintendent,
F. C Martsolf ; treasurer, Wm. Reese ; libra
rian. A. A. Gard; secretary, T. L. Nixon;
choriter, S. A. Sturgls; organist, J. M. II.
Allen. This school is prospering finely, and
bids fair to do a good work. The sessions of
the school are held every Sabbath morning at
8 o'clock, in the Presbyterian church. All
arc cordiallv Invited.
Wm 3Iahanah, whose riderless horse came
back to Sedgwick City last week from the ford
of the Little Arkansas, has not been heard of
nor found, notwithstanding active search, ne
had just arrived at Sedgwick from Illinois, and
was going to see his sister, who lived on the
opposite side of the river. He is reported to
have had a thousand dollars on his person.
Later. The body has jut been found a
few miles below the ford, after having been in
the water nine davs.
Steele A Smith, our extendi e and enterpris
ing real estate dealers, have done a larger bus
iness since our last Is-ue than ever before in a
single week. They sold over fifteen thousand
dollars worth of property. Included with this
is lot 47. rain street, sold to 31r. George W.
D tinkle, or Baxter Spring, for $1(50. 3Ir.
Dunklc will immediately erect a business
houe thereon i"xTo, which he intends "chuck
ing" full of dry goods a soon as it i finished.
At tlie other end of our long bridge Is located
that busy mart West Wichita. If it was known
to some that a splendid opportunity is offered
there for the building ami opening of a hotel,
and that a land office business awaits it, besides
the liberal inducements offered for buildings of
all kinds, and that live shares in this thriving
suburb of Wichita remain yet unsold, tlie
president of the company,Sol. H. Kohn, would
be hunted up and "tilings would goon again."
In another column will be found an article
written by the editor before leaving for the '
cast, which diciises the probability of a re
moval of the state capital. Because of the
llings at our town by the Topeka daily some
might construe the article into a jocose retalia
tion, but from expressions made by Col. 3Ittr
doek wc are satisfied that he considers the re
moval of the state capital in the next ten years
an improbability by no iiuan.
Tcpeka is wild over the biting of (wo persons
there by mad dogs, on last Saturday. The po
lice anil citizen have commenced an Indis
criminate slaughter. Large intoices of sau
sage way be expected here soon. Our dbg
bii-incs i in statu quo. and is likely to remain
so until some valuable life is lo-t. Then the
mayor will blame the council and the council
the mayor. In the meantime the corpse will
be borne to the cemetery and the dog tied up
by its owner.
Capt. E. S. Mosely has just got in from Kio
wa City, Barbour county. The captain brought
some beautiful specimens of pure magnesia
and salt with him. He says there are a great
many fine timbered claim close by him. Coal
I found in the sluices. The promises for
other mineral wealth are abundant. The land
is the richest he has seen anywhere south of
the Arkansas valley, and of the same character.
Emigrants should note this.
On last Sabbath, at the close or the morning
sen-ice, there was a Baptist church organized,
with twenty-six members, and we learn that
measures will be taken soon to erect a house of
worship and have regular services. The la
dies of the society have organized a mite soci
ety or sociable, and they will hold their first
meeting at the house or Mr. Hobbs on next
Tuesday night, at 8 o'clock, to which all are
cordially invited.
At an adjourned meeting or Odd Fellows, as
sembled in theom.ee orSluss, Reeves & House,
on Tuesday evening last, all the necessary ar
rangements were made for the full and com
plete organization or a lodge at Wichita. An
other meeting is to be held at the same place
next Tuesday evening, to which all members
in good standing are earnestly invited.
Impudence and abuse combined itself in the
knocking down of a little red-faced man in one
of the lower end saloons this week. As be
arose, and while balancing on Ids knees, his
husky persecutor said: "What doycr wear
sucli long-toed shoes for and ycr won't be Tall
in' over ycr feet."
MAJtltlED.
On Thursday evening, at the Mungcr House,
by the Rev. J. P. Harscn, of the First Presby
terian church, Mr. Fred. C. Martsolf to Mrs.
Alice 31. Ledford.
The above did not take us much by surprise,
a wc have noticed carryings-on for some time.
The bride and groom left last evening for the
cast. We congratulate both parties. Fred
has got one of the noblest or little women for a
wife, and Alice has exchanged herself for a
man whose qualities of head and heart arc in
perfect accord with hi pure christian life.
SPECIAL NOTICES.
3icClure & Co., lumber dealers, are at Wich
ita with a stock of lumber, not the largest
stock in America, but a stock sufficient for all
demands. W. P. 3IcClurc was a partner in
the firm of John Wayne & Co., at Topeka,
Burlingamc and Emporia until two years ago
since that time on the L., L. & G. R. R. at
New Chicago, Thayer and Independence, and
on the 31., K. & T. It. R. at Chetopa. Our
shipments last year on those roads were over
500 car loads or lumber. We do not claim to
buy and sell cheaper than any one, but from
our long experience in buying and handling
lumber wc know something about it. We are
satisfied to let Chicago make our grades, and
ir we cannot sell standard grades wc will get
out and quit the trade. Office and yards at
Wichita on Douglas avenue, on the cart bank
of the river, between the bridge and the Ave
