Evans, the Fort Sill sutler, passed through this place Saturday morning, en route lor Washington, to tell what ho knows about the post trader business. Tho directors of tho lair havo been busy a part of tho week perfecting arrangements lor the fall exhibition. Tho premium list is nearly ready for the press. W. C. Woodman and wife have returned from the Centennial stronger in the convic tion that there is no place in the United States to pleasant as the "happy valley." Jliss Dell Baldwin was tho recipient of a handsome and tine toned piano last wcek,aud now sweet strains ol music greet the car ol the passer-by ol her pleasant home. J. Jay Duck, of Emporia, by a few siort and well-timed remarks at the Republican rally, Friday evening, showod conclusively to the nudienco that he was master ol the situation. Mr. Goodyear bought and moved the old land otllcc building which was on ".lain street and formerly belonged to Joel Goodrick, to the comer of Douglas and Emporia avenues. Tho voting precinct ol Illinois township has been changed to ths shool house in district No. 01. The precinct was formerly at Jen kins' hou?e. The Township Trustee has ordered It changed. The speech ot S. A. Cobb, Friday night, bristled with patriotism and lovo lor his coun try. Ills points on transportation wero well taken and well received, as it is one of the key notes ol the citizens of this valley. Sunday afternoon, while the bell was ring ing for Sunday school, we saw nineteen boys, ranging in ago from eleven down to Cvo, head ed by a lKi,ot-b!ack, wending thoir way to the river for a swim. Thcio is something quite suggestive in this. Uustcll thinks cast-Iron rings will not do to uso in firing an anvil chorus. One ol the rings burstcd and struck a man on the arm and tore his coat sleeve nearly off, aud then went through Scblichter & Itussel's glass front aud imbedded itself in the window casing. It. 21. Ocminsr, a commercial traveler Ironi Pittsburg, died Tuesday evening at the Occi dental, lie had been here several days trans acting business. He retired at an early hour aud was discovered, a short time alter retir ing, in tho agonies ol death. Apoplexy was the cause. Hon. Thomas Ityau's was ol a historical na ture. He reviewed to some extent the two great national parties, Democratic and Repub lican, the former tried, "weighed in tho bal ance and round wauling," while tho other had been true to her trust and would be given a hew lease of power. Wo are under many obligations to Jirs.E. G. Wright lor a very handsome boiuet. It is aregular beauty. Wo undertook to count the different varieties of flowers contained there in but gave it up. Tho taste displayed in ar ranging it is in full keeping with her home and its pleasant surroundings. Wc havo heard of tho little jokes, but for a big joker, one to make fun for the boys, and tell a story and make an application of it that hits right betweeu Uio eyes, commend us to Tom Cavanaugh, Secretary of State. He "turneu himself loose," Friday night, and had tho whole audience on a regular stampede with him. tcrs. rcnucstinir tint thev bo mailed at tho proper time. Ha then called lor a cool pleasant room saying ho wished to Ho down and take a sleep, as he was not feeling very well. The clerk showed him up to a room on tho third floor, No. 42, and returned to the office, which lie had scarcely reached when he was In formed by one ol tho chambermaids that some one had shot off a pistol in or near rcmB-Noi-tiv Tbcerkrimmctjkrtcjy returned to-nbat Win, Snrd arrived jest in time to wrest a pistol from the young man's-hand while in the act ol shooting himself a second time. Tho unfortunato young man's namo is T.obert Aimsby, anattroof Monmouth, Illi nois, whore the most of his relatives aro now living. Ho came to this place about two months since in company with an ;uucle who purchased quite a large farm, over two hun dred acrcf, furnished it with the necessary farm implements, teams, etc., and gave it iu charge ol the young man; also letters of credit in one of the banks ol the city,wlth a promise that if ho was successful on tho farm, and ex pended his funds judiciously that he would be ftirntshcd larger amounts and ho might buy land and open out a thousand-aero farm, ll ho so desired. But he had formed habits of dissipation which he, seemingly, could not shake oil, and, after spending a considerable ofhis time in tho city in riotous living, ho seemed to grow despondent aud sought to put an end to his existence. Tho pistol used was a Smith & Wesson. Tho ball entered ills body about one and one-half inches above the left nipple, passed through tho upper part of tho left lung, striking the lower part of the left shoulder blade and lodged in the bed clothes. The wholo affair seems to have been deliberately planned, as he had taken off his coat and boots and laid himself dowu on the bed and then did tho deed. Dr. Fur ley was called, dressed tho wound and tho probabilities are that he will recover. The Meeting Friday Night. The largest political meeting over held in Wichita assembled last Friday ulght to listen to addresses by Hon. S. A. Cobb, of AVyan dotte, Hon. Thos. Ityan, ol Topeka, Tom Cav anangh, Secretary of State, and J. Jay Buck, ol Emporia. About sunset, several gentlemen having the arrangements in charge, began tho firing of anvils, and amid the booming of the anvils and muic of tho baud a largo crowd gathered, and when the time arrived lor tho speaking to begin, Eagle Hall was filled with a very intelligent audience, not less than one hundred of whom were ladiC3. llr. Cobb was the first introduced, and although wc have heard him on several occasions, we frankly admit that we never heard a happier effort, for a brief extempore address. Jlr. Ityan fol lowed in a strong appeat to Kepublicana to bo true in tho future as in the past, to their prin ciples. 21r. Buck rather surprised those to whom he wa3 a stranger. He was very elo quent, aud was heartily applau Jed. llr. Cav anaugh said there was nothing left for him but to tell stories, which ho proceeded to do with the happiest effect. Tho meeting was enthu siastic to the last degree, and when at tho close W. C. Woodman, the president, said "this meeting was called to ratify tho nominations of Hayes and Wheeler, now let us ratify, the audience will please rise to their feet,"' the ladies waved their haudkerchiefs, with three as hearty cheers by tho men as were ever given for any cause. It. II. Boys, an attorney from Michigan, has opened a law office in the Centennial Block, where ho will bo pleased to meet, at any timo parties desiring legal advice or business. Mr. Boys comes to our city with very strong en dorsements, or letters ol recommendation from some of the prominent citizens of Lansing, Michigan. There is work for the health officer ot this city, and work, too, that demands immediate attention. The amount ol filth in tho back alleys ol this city is simply frightful to behold and sickening to think of. With tho vast amount of water that has fallen and the rank vegetation, there necessarily arises a miasma that will surely causo a great amount ot sick ness if measures are not taken to guard against it. True, the city authorities are doing some thing in tho way of cleaning up the city,but tho street commissioners, with one or two. nun, aro not adequate for tho task. Let the health officer go in person and take a look around this city (and we will guarantee that he willgct a smell us he goes along.) tako a lUt of the names of tho property owners who have these filthy out-houscs, pig-pons, cow-pcus and sta bles, and have them notified immediately to clean up. After cleaning up, disinfectants must bo used freely, Lime is an excellent pu rifier and is a cheap disinfectant. This much the city can do aud have done, and it must be done or the inhabitants of this citv at large will have to suflcr the consequence.0. The health interest of this city demands that im mediate aud positive woik should be done to ward cleaning up. Ehcwhcro will be found the advertisement ol the Kansas City Surgical and Medical In stitute and Women's Hospital. The institu tion is perfectly reliable. Dr. Cooley, who has charge of the surgical department, has a wide-spread reputation as a successlul practi tioner. For lurthcr reference enquire of our fellow townsman, J. A. Miller, who Is v, ell ac quainted with the parties conducting it, and he Will take pleasure in answering questions. J. C. Meigher was quite badly hurt Friday evening while engaged in firing the anvils. While in tho act of pouring powder from a can into the ring on ths anvil the powder took tiro from eomo cause or other there seem j to bo a difference of opinion how at any rate the can exploded, a piece hitting Mr. Moigber in the face, also a piece struck him in tho thigh and made a very ugly wound, which will tako a long time to heal.

For many years the Hcmington machine com pany have attempted to force their machines on the market as tho Hcmington, but failed, which reminds me of several occurrences. Fifteen years ago the third day of July, I was in Bloomington Illinois, stopping with a fricudbythenaraeorD.il. Horner. There were two agents at the place, tho Wheeler & Wilson and the Kemingtou. Tho Wheeler A Wilson agent had confidence enough in his machine to sell it on its own reputation, but the Kemingtou agent's confidence failed him, and he attempted to sell it as tho improved Weed. Some five years ago, while I was sell ing the Howe, I happened to meet an agent that was selling ths Hcmington. Ho had as little confidence in his machine as tho first one I met, and he attempted to sell it as the improved Howe, and 1 have been creditably informed that the Hemington agents aro sell ing their machines hero as the improved Singer, which is false. There Is no improved Singer except the original one, which cannot be sold in the Southwest except by or through me. Those who wish to buy the Hcmington are welcome to, but I deem it my duty to inform the good people of tho South west, through the columns of your paper, so they will not bo imposed upon in buying ma chines. A machine that cannot bo sold on its own reputation should not be sold on the merits of a machine that has been long tried and proved, without doubt, the best in the world. The impositions offered are of the deepest dye. W. JIasox, General Agent for tho Southwest. Wichita, Juno 27, 187fi. M-Gm -I - T - If T --!---" .GEO. X.SMITH, t'Lir ,yavoT! ',". rf:i !y.

A visit to Wichita a fv days ago, to attend the Democratic ratification meeting.conlirmcd all that we havo been hearing and reading, during tho last two or three years, of the wonderful development that has been going on there. From a town of about two thou sand inhabitants that we lound tbero four years ago, It has grown to bo a thriving, pros perous young city of lour thousand or more, and is decidedly the liveliest place, in the way of business, to be found in Kansas. From morning till night its streets are thronged with people aud teams its merchants and business men busy, and every indication ! an active, ueauuy iraue. Auout tho railroad depot, especially, the streets arc ordinarily crowded with wagon loads and buyers of wheat. Wichita is the market town of a very largo breadth ol country, and as tho crops for two year have been very excellent, and the Immigration heavy, the towu is enjoying, and promises to enjoy lor many years in the lu ture, an extraordinary degree of prosperity and development.
