There Is at last a chance for the fellows
who have long desired to bo postmaster pure

service will bo badly crippled, ; and nof only
that, but thousands ol good, careful .aiid effi
cient postmasters now in service will resign,
only to hare thc offices fall into Incompetent

The authorities or the M. E. Church of El
dorado, having tendored the use or the church
building to tho Presbyterian pastor and so
ciety for tho mouths ol July aud August at
preaching hours, aud tho tender being ac
cepted, it cives the undersigned the much
needed opportunity for rost and recreation.
Our official board kiudly granted me this
privilege, which I propose to use to the best
ofniy ability and hope to return with re
newed vigor to my pulpit and pastoral work,
September first, Walter Oaklev,
Pastor of M. E. Church.
Eldorado, June 2J, 1S7I. Eldorado Timet.
Wo don't wonder at all at tho authorities
or tho 31. E. Church at Eldorado tendering
the use of their church to another congrega
tion and minister. Tho only thing that does
surprise us is, that they did not make it for
thc remaining portion o: the conrcrcnce year,
if the sermons of their pastor have been like
the one "dished up" to a largo and intelligent
audience at Ihc 21. E. church in (his city last
Sabbath morning. Folly minutes were con
sumed in trying to explain what Brother
Ilanna did at tho close in less than one minute
with less than a dozen word.
Tho question has been asked us several
titno3 during tho past week, whoso business
it Is to fix the approaches to the frco bridge.
They nre reported in a very bad condition.
Wc don't know, but to guess at It, wo should
say the road overseer or Delano should keep
the west end of tho bridge fixed, and for the
cast or north end of the bridge, the road over
seer of Wichita township begins. But be
that as it may, the road ought to bo fixed.
And while wo are talking about roads, wc will
call the attention or tho proper authorities lo
tho road al thc Chishohn creek, near 31c
Campbell's. It Is almost impassable, the
bridge is in a dangerous condition and should
have a railing on each side.
A couplo from Reno county no; since wo
coino to think about it, there icre three of
them, viz : an old gentleman sixty-four.an old
lady Torty-two, and a young man twenty-one
years or age drove into our city late one
evening last week. They pulled up at Treas
urer Woodcock's office, and in an excited and
breathless manner the old gentleman rushed
in and asked ir ho was tho Iiccnc judge.
Upon being told of thc Probate Judge's
whereabouts, he told 3Ir. Woodcock to lay
low and not say any thing, lor something was
going to happen, which ho would undoubted
ly hear or next morning. The three proceed
ed to Judge Little's office and were joined in
the bonds or holy wedlock then and there in a
very solemn and impressive manner by the
grave and sedate license man. The bride was
attired in a rich and costly calico withi only
two widths in the dress. It was nemo of your
pull-backs with over skirt and under skirt,
panicr and polonaise and trail not a bit of it,
no roolishness about it. Tho groom's ward
robe was plain and unpretentious; it consist
ed or a blue Denims shirt and buckskin-colored
corduroy pants, tan-colored shoes,
flesh-colored socks. The groomsman, the sou
of the old msn, (ror he was supposed to be a
widower.) was dressed a la Arkansas sand
lappcr check shirt, Dcuims pants and bare
footed. Woodcock acted as usher and bride's
maid. After thc ceremony was performed,
aud the usual salutations from tho party pres
ent, including the honorable judge, the groom
drew himself up in a diguiiicd manner, aud
told the lricnds present that ho and the old la
dy had farms adjoining and ho did not see
any reason why they could not put their
things together and keep house, whereupon
she kindly consented. He then borrowed
some matches from the uaher.stalmg thai they
would camp out that night, and took their
The Horse Fair.
The races Monday and Tuesday were toler
ably well attended. Tuesday quite a large
crowd was present at thc afternoon races.
The programme was well arranged, tbcjraces
pleasantly and satisfactorily conducted, and
all thc horsemen present expressed themselves
satisfied with thc conduct of affairs. Thc fol
lowing is a general outline of thc races Mon
day: Trotting race; open to horses that had not
made a mile In three minutes. Tho following
horses wcro entered : Chief, by B. 31. Ter
rell; Bashaw JIaid. by T. 31. Lane; Pat, by
Sam. Adams. Chief won first money, Ba
shaw Maid second. Time 3:3.
Pouy race, hair mile dash, won by Kansas
marc. Also another pony race.half mile dash,
six entries, won by spotted pouy.
Pacing race. Horses entered : Honest
John, by J. T. 3Ic3Iillcn; Bay Unknown, by
Cantain Davis: Sleepy Kate, by Frank b as
set. Won In t;vo straight heats by Honest
John. Next was half mile dash by Sleepy
Tom, Sleepy Jim, Button, Pogwood, Spot
and Rattler. Button won first money, Rat
tler second; timeuOJ.
A now feature was then introduced in the
programme, which consisted ol .a foot race.
Nine men entered for a purse of five dollars;
distance kixty yards; won by Jasper Kyle .
The most exciting auU the race that created
the most Interest and excited a great deal of
enthusiasm was a pacing race by Limber Jim,
entered by Dr. Owens, and Wichita Charley,
rntered by By Terrell; threo best in five.
Both horses being iu tolerable good condition
neither had tho advantage in that respect.
First heat was won by Wichita Charley; tiino
2:55. Second heat by same; time 2:50.
Third heat by same; time 2: 13. Between the
second and third heats of tho pacing race a
pony race occurred. Onc-rourth mile dash.
Won by bay pony.
Premiums were offered abo on stallions ot
two classes, dralt aud blooded Frank Fasset
had three horses .entered, viz: Phil Sheri
dan, which took the Jirst premium for draft
horses, aud Tim Line, which took secoud.
The exhibition oi blooded horses was good.
Captain Tarlton exhibited two young horses
which were perfect pictures for horsemen. It
is a feast to look on them. Mr. Tariton's
horse, Oram I!oy, wo will venture to say.cau
not be beaten iu the State; also his horse,
Blue Grass, a two-year-old, is a fine specimen
or horse flesh. B. F. Jones' horse, Lawrence
jr., Is a very lino horse and shoves his "jioou.
He took tho second premium.
Upon the whole thu exhibition and races
were good, and great credit Is due to tho di
rectors, who, under such adverso circum
stances, conducted tho two-days fair so suc
cessrully. The premiums will all be prompt
ly paid, and it won't be many years before
the society will be able to oiler larger premi
ums, and Wichita will be the fast horse cen

"Dodgi: Crry, June 21, 1S70,
"El)ITon Eagli: Pull down yo'ur vest,
wipe off your chin aud show your colors."
Wc presume tiiat the party who sent the
above request is some string beau who had to
leave Wichita on account or not having any
visible means of support, and went to Dodge,
of course. In order to show colars "to eom
peto with Dodge wc whould have to have
dance-houses, gambling halls and garroting
shops and such like, but we are happy to in
form him that that species of barbarism aud
wickedness has long since departed from our
city, and Wichita stands to-day, morally, as
well as any town iu the State, aud physically
ad commercially she has no competitors in
the west, outstripping them all. Her pros
perity to-day is greater than it over was be
fore, and in throe years from now she will be
a city of six thousand inhabitants. These arc
our colors. If you have any allusion to the
Texas cattle trade, wo have all that wo asked
for. The trail has been kept open and a
number of choice herds aro on the grazing
grounds west of the city. As to the chin and
vest bu-iucs3, that Is old.

Tho Singer Sowinar Machine. "
Over ono million and a lirjlf In use. Thc
most durable and lightest running-machine in
tho world. As an evidence, the Singer, Rem
ington 'and Wheeler & Wilson wcro invented
about tho same time and put Into market," and
at tho present day tho Siugor has over one
million and a iiairiu use, the Wheeler .t Wil-.
son has about five hundred thousand aud the
Remington has the small, Insignificant num
ber of five thousand nine hundred ami firty-
threc, which can he seen on the tmper end of
the needle burr, which makes the Remington
the last cnoico of the people, and they would
not have sold one quarter that number had
they not sold them under a fictitious name.
For many years tho Remington machine com
pany have attempted to foreo their machines
on tho market as the Remington, but failed,
which reminds mo of soveral occurrences.
Fifteen years ago the third day of July, I was
in Bloomington Illinois, stopping with a
friend by the name orD. II. Horner. There
were two agents at the place, tho Wheeler &
Wilson and the Remington. Tho Wheeler &
Wilson agent had confidence enough iu his
machine to sell it on its owii reputation, but
the Remington agent's confidence failed him,
and he attempted to sell it as the improved
Weed. Some five years ago, while I was sell
ing the Uowo, I happened to meet an agent
that wa3 soiling the Remington. Ho had as
little confidence in his machino as tho first
one I met, and he attempted to sell it as the
Improved Howe, and 1 have becu creditably
informed that the Remington agents aro sell
ing their machines here as' the improved
Singer, which is false. There Is no improved
Singer except thc original one, which cannot
be sold in the Southwest except by or
through me. Those who wish to bay the
Remington aro welcome to, but I deem it my
duty to inform tho good people of tho South
west, through the columns of your paper, so
they will not be imposed upon iu buying ma
chines. A machine that cannot be sold on
its own reputation should not be sold on the
merits of a machine that has been long tried
aud proved, without doubt, tha best in the
world. The impositions offered are of the
deepest dye. W. 3I.S0K,
