Ksratof.ky has fitted up a little the inoii ex
pensive and gorgeo"iis show windows ever at

race, but be will come off second no man of
our city In business He is as lull of life, en
ergy and push as old Vanderbilt himself and
knows no such word as rail, even when con
flicting three separate lines of business, as he
IrTrHil Hst slimmer arid will tills. 'Harris make"
f - "-
is a sufficient passport in this city when it
comes to a matter or stylinb suits and tastes.
Geo. E. Harris is or the kind of men that win
in the race ot life, nnd his admirers iu Wichita
are numbered by the score.
James Bryden or Corpus Clirlntl, the well
known and cxtenthe Texas cattle dealer, ar
rived in town this week. His herds are on
the trail between here and the southern line or
the Indian tenHxSrr, moving north as rapidly
as the backward spring and grass will permit,
and will be shipped from this point. Mr. Bry
den is a thorough gentleman, a successful bu
siness man and a fast friend or Wichita.
Grady's circus has come and gone, and,
much to the surprize or all, turned out far bet
ter thau was expected or even ndvcrtUed.
The balloon was duly inflated and shot up into
the air, about sundown, with its dariugtraiieze
performer dangling-at its tail, mid loud buzzas
from the meneTeams from women, and cry
ing of frightened children. That inflation
process and tho bedizzened, mcdaled and
smutty gentleman that had charge of the fire
works were immense the biggest thing that
ecr struck this valley.
P. G. Ilalberg, the great Emporia nursery
man, was in town the other day with a carload
of select fruit trees and plant1) for Winfield and
vicinity. He brought down the two century
plants which were ou exhibition at the
state fair last fall, nnd which bad been pur
chased by William GriffiniHein of this city, for
the sum ot thirty dollars. They aro magnifi
cent specimens and can be seen by lovers of
plants and flowers iu a few days in Mr. G's.
front yard. Mr. U. has in his greenhouse at
Emporia, nearly every variety of plants and
roses, which cau be ordered by freight or ex
press. We have heard but little complaint this
spring as jet, about the lost of cattle, yet we
are very certain that our Sedgwick county far
mers must have suffered more or less, as also
those who have wintered Texas stock on con
tract. The fatality among tba cattle of the
state this soring is very largely attributable.of
course, to the late cold storms and backward
season. Despite our mild winter, the grasi is
nearly a month behind. Cattle, unless strong
ly fed upon upopjiutricious food, readily sue
cumb to cold spring rains, lbe late severe
storms north and east, although they did not
reach hern, vet they effected tho temperature
of our winds and raius to such an extent as to
render the month juit gone very disagreeable
and, we should judge, diaitrous to their cat
tle. The rain last Sunday night, while it was
not cold, .must have proved very severe ou
cows with young calves, uulcsn they had shel
ter, which is tho exception.
Tbo spirit of home improvements and adorn
ments has fairly taken possession or our peo
ple. To fix up has almost become a tnauia.
Husbands, wives, brothers and sisters, all ap
pear to be taking a hand at gardening, plant
ingflowcrs, and better than all, setting out
trees and shrubbery. It is well. Each tree
successfully transplanted not only adds to the
value or each single lot, but to the comfort and
value or the ntir city. The mistake made
by turec-fourfliat the new town In Kansas
was the neglect to plant trees. Wichita is ev
idently profiting by the result or these failures.
It is not to late yet to put out trees providing
it is done carefully followed by mulching. If
there is an owner of a home in the town that
has neglected to put out trees let him do it be
fore Saturday night. Uuder our laws no hogs,
cattle or horses, are allowed to run at large, so
it is the easiest matter in the world to succes
fully grow trees, without boxing them, which
process ruins so many trees.
Our farmers arc getting fifty cents per buxbel
for corn iu the ear upon our street.", wbicli
fact Is noted with pleasure. We only vv ish we
could make it a dollar. Thero are thousands
of rich, productive quarter sections iu this val
ley, owned and tilled by broad-guaged, enter
prising farmers uho only lack a few hundred
dollars each to render themselves and families
not only independent of panics, but prosperous
and happy. A little money to stock up with,
a little more to liuiljl and rxprov e with, and in
a rew years thh valley will rival in product
iveness that ofthe historic Mile, while its
fame, and that of its commercial metropolis,
Wichita, will reach the uttermost limits oft tie
continent. '-Fifty cents per bushel for corn,"
or a round or even a square price for the
thousand and one things that the warm soil of
this valley so readily and abundantly produces,
and money will be five per cent, per year, in
stead of so'much per mouth. With no fences to
build except as they are grown, with no forests
to clear away, with a climate that challenges
the world for health; water in abundance and
pure; the finest natural roads in the world, and
fifty cents (or com, and a good market for other
things, is all the people of this valley ask.
Now a few word about Wichita, tier past,
present and future an item or two sustaining
assertions or the Eagle, heretofore made,
touching our city government under the ad
ministration or James G. Hope, written for
the consolation or tax-payers, and for the ed
ification of all who take any intcrcs in the af
fairs and growth of this four-year-old city.
While the growth of Wichita for the year 1872
stands almost unparalleled In the history ef
towns in the west, yet last spring round us in
debt $1,000 and upwards, principally Tor street
improvement). The teasou opened up pros
ptrously and continued lively throughout
1S73. Even during the past winter, commer
cial agents and others visiting our town were
want to remark that Wichita led all towns in
the state for real solid business and general
evidences of prosperity. Starting in last spring,
with an indebtedness of l,3oOrths police force
was increased, over three miles of sidewalk
were built, two streets were traded, nine
stone crossings were built, and about 1 4,000
was expended In the cattle trade. Now, we
find from official sources, that we have cash in
the treasury f 1,6.11.78, besides as assets 11,500
expended in sidewalks, which individuali
mutt refund to tbt city, and not ouc cent of
city tax was levied last season, and we don't
owe one dollar. With all this prosperity and
financial success, we have bad as orderly and
well governed city as can be found anywhere.
V.'c challenge this state, or any other, for a
parallel, white we sincerely congratulate the
out-going board and the new mayor upon the
favorable showing.
Many or our citizens are beiug now, and
have been in the past, put to a great deal uf
unnecessary trouble and expense iu determin
ing the boundaries of their lots. Many of the
improvements on the resident streets do not
line, offering anything but a pleasing effect to
the close observer. These blunders mar the
appearace of Main street even, and or Douglas
avenue. Anew survey of Emporia avenue
last week whether ofbeial or not we know
not if correct, damages the property holders
upon that thoroughfare to the tune of tbou
sauds or dollars. The lines made out by the
last survey differ from two to twelve red from
original surveys. This is perfectly inexplica
ble to us, and we would counsel the property
owners upon that avenue to bring the matter
at once before the city authorities and not
move their fences and improvements, as some
are doing, until lines have been properly and
legally determined, with the variations, plats
and field notes all recorded. The law prov ides
for the recording of every hue officially run,
together with the variation. It further pro
vides that the surveyor shall correct this vari
ation by actual observation, at least twice a
year. t this has been doue there should arise
no trouble. We ask the new council to take
immediate steps for the proper establishing ot
lines within our city, and to the establishing
of the permanent grade of the two principal
business streets, as the longer the matter is J
pottpoued the more expensive and perplexing
will it become. In the mean lime, we would
suggest to citizens employing private parties
to hunt up lines, that there is a government
section corner stone in the centre of Lawreuce
avenue, near Mr. Mead's residence, and an
other on Green way street at Its intersection
with the above named avenue. By setting a
transit at one of these corners and a staff at the
otber, the variation can be determined very
readily at any time, upon which surveys made
will come out correct. If this whole matter is
not right tpetvdily settled it will be fauna a
fruitful source of perplexity and expense here-
alter which say in turn lead to litigation and
The tint quarterly meeting of the M. E.
church in Wichita for the year will be held on
the 25th Inst. The election ot trustees will
take place on Saturday between S and 4
o'clock. The new presiding elder. Dr. Buck-
ner, will preach on both dart. The Lord't
supper will be administered on Sabbath.
J. W. Phillips has recciv ed his two brick ma
chine, one of which is being put in position.
They are Hall's pateut and are manufactured
by. B. C. Taylor,igtMyton, Ohio. The ma
chines are light and simple, with a capacity of
about 15,000 brick each per day, and should
the weather prove favorable, Mr. P. will be
able to fully supply the urgent demand lor sub
stantial building material.
That cotton seed has been heard from. It
left St. Lonis on the 7th, and will no doubt be
ou hand before this Issue of the Eagle it out.
It was purchased at Memphis. There are 191
sacks ofit, or 20,000 pounds, enough to supply
all who desire to try their bands. It will be
distributed gratuitously. A letter which left
Memphis at the same time ssys that the
planters even that far south bad not yet put in
their cotton, owing to the backward spring.
But it should be got in the ground as soon at
possible.
The new Occidental hotel at this place Is
getting up a wide-spread reputation for its
unexceptional management and choice bill of
fare. It Is the largest and most complete ho.

not only immensely popular with our citizens
but deservedly so with the traveling public,

day slowly faded out, loving hands tenderly
consigned to rest the little wearied form
around which had clung the heart-love of the
now lonely parents. Beneath the tod on the

bloom in beauty, and the birds of spring ting
in gladness,thc casket was only bid away from

Cleo, released from pain and the sorrows ot
earth, is now upon the evergreen shore with
sister spirits, happy.
"As the bird to its sheltering nest,
When the storm on the hills It abroad,
So her spirit hath flown from this world of
unrest;
To repose on the bosom of God."

Watchmen patrol the line day and night, be
fore and after the passage of each train, to see
that everything it in good order. This system
of watchmen gives this road extraordinary ex

the best quality or new steel and iron rails,
laid on broad, new tiet. This road continues
to run six fast express trains, two more than
any other road between the Missouri and Mis

EL PASO.
Tnc town of El Paso U located oa ike east babk
f the great Arkansas Rlvrr, in the southeastern
art of Sedgwick county, Kansas. It baa many
drantarrs, arsons; which are its beautiful and
ealthy location, sitsated on a high, atntly lop
na; prairie, surrounded br one of the Urrtst bol
es of the roost fertile land in the state, which is
dl taken up by actual settlers, who are energetic,
ndustrious and practical fanner. TTarr are at
vork in earnest, oiwnlngup their farms ami roak
ax themselves Mod, comfortable and permanent
aomts.
ROCK BOTTOM.
There la a rock bottom In the river, extending
ibout three quarters of a mile up and down the
rrrara. On the east bank the rocks arc about fif
eca feet above low water mark, and on the west
sask about twelve feet below the surface ot the
round.
HtUDfli: FACILITIES.
A cooJ substantial bridge, two hundred and
evrnty-Uve feet Iodic, spans the Arkansas Rivtr
it this place, thereby rliia; the farmers on the
vest side ot the river access to the town at any
tajre ol water and at all seasons of thr year The
ridge rests on ttoue abutments on either bank,
'ml ou two Iron piers, which stand flnr.tr on the
srd rock tn the river It Is naturally the best
jlace on the rirrr in this state far a railroad bridge
serosa ths srrtat Arkansas Itive r.
RAlLltOAPM.
Two railroads have already been anrvryrd to
'his place ; one from the northeast, via Kurrka and
ugusta, crossing the rtrrr at this rock bottom,
he other from the city of Wichita to Arkansas
City, which proved to be almost an air tine and a
very favorable route JSo doubt, both roads will
-oon lie completed.
