A woman has Just dlvd in Cuba, alter much hesitation, at the age of 1S8 years. ' Mr. H. W. Hart, who returned Monday from a trip to Kansas gives vivid sketches of the "boom" that prevails at Wichita, Newton, Wellington, Winfield and Arkansas City.. . -Mr. Hart infers that the boom nt the most of these places is merely a reflection of that at Wichita. He preferred Newton to any place that he visited. Ii Is a city of 8,000 Inhabitants; is on a fine location, and has street care and the electric light. But at Wichita, tbe Altonians saw the circus and the elephant combined. It was like a St. Louis Mardi Gras season, the streets crowded and business on a rush, apparently, day and night. A $400,000 hotel is being erected on a $60.000 tract of land, that was bought for about $600 a few years ago, An unsuccessful attempt was made to play the Altonmns for ' 'Suckers," a game that succeeds with many. A resident of Wichita, one evening, pointing at a splendid bank building, ablaze with light and lively as a bee hive, remarked: "They employ two sets of clerks there, one company through the day, another at night." One plan to secure investments is to take advantage of the arrival of capitalists and have a street car railway in operation on a thoroughfare where the lots on sale are located, and then, when the desired purpose is dccomplish- ed, move the rails and locate the road on another street. There are hundreds of keen, shrewd, wide awake real estate agents not only at Wichita but at the other places named, and when they con scoop a gudgeon by paying one another a big profit on alleged sales they don't hesitate." More than this, confidence men have taken advantage of the excitement and swindled honest seekers after investments out of thousands of dollars. Two weeks ago a meeting was held in tbe Methodist church in Wichita and in half an hour $47,000 was subscribed for a Young Men's Christian Association buildiug. This is but one example of the effect the boom has on any and every entorpnso In contemplation. The only question with Mr. Hart is: How long will outsiders put in money and keep up the boomP He didn't invest at ruling prices. RAILWAY MANAUKBB COMING. President ..Haitman and General Manager Fisher, of the St. Louis and Central Illinois railroad, will arrive in this city tomorrow morning on a visit of innpeotion, and would like to confer with our citizens as to the feasibility of extending their road from Elsah to this city. We trust all our citizens who feel an interest in this important extension will meet with these officials and talk over the enterprise in detail. Advice to Homers. Mrs. Wlnslow's Soothing Syrup, for children teething, is the presorption of one of the best female nurses and physicians in the' United States, and has been used for forty year? with never- failing success by millions of mothers for their children. During the process of toothing its value is Incalculable. It relieves'' the child-from pain, cures dysentery and diarrhoea, griping in the bowels, and wind-colic. By giving health* to the child It rests the mother Price 26o n bottle. ia lo m w H wt NOW DEVOTE ATTENTION TO E m b r o i deries, AND Goods, Blind Tom. (Philadelphia Beoorti)'. One peculiarity about this extraordinary genius is, that uncouth as he appears, seemingly holding all nation* a! attributes in obedience, be has power to draw around blia the elite of the city. Men of intellect, men of minds nil go to see Tom--not to witness his antics, not to listen to his imitations, but to be astonished, confounded and amazed, at the effect he [produces on the piano. His nutes are so thrill* ing. and his execution so perfect and startling as to amuse every listener. The piano itself seema gifted, and sends forth in reverberations, praises, as it were, to Blind Tom. There fs music in all things, but Blind Tom Is the temple whermj mnsio dwells. He Is a sort of door keeper besides, and wh«n be opens the portals, music seems to Issue forth to wake the ecstasy. THE CENTRAL MISSOUuI. •t. Louis Alarmed. FUNEltAL BITES, MRS. FRENCH. The funeral of Mrs. Eva French took place at 10 o'clock today from ihe residence of her son-in-law, Mr. Homer Stanford,wilh a large attendance. Tbe solemn services were conducted by Rev. J. A. Soarntt, of the M. E. church, Jerseyville, and opened with scripture rending after which the hymn "Rock of Ages" was sung. The invocation commenced with the quotation: "Oh, God, our help In ages past, Our hope (or years to come, Our shelter from the stormy blast, Aad our eternal home." This was followed by the touching hyrnj: "Safe in the Arms of Jesus." Mr. Soarritt took for the foundation of his remarks Isaiah 36:10: "And the ransomed of tho Lord snail return, and come to Zion with songs and ever-lasting joy upon their hearts; they shall obtain Joy and gladness and sorrow mid sighing shall flee away." tie spoke of the last few years of tho deceased, crowned as they were with good works and faithful devotion to her Master. Tbe things of time scomud to lessen in her view as eternity grew nearer. A short sketch of her life was given and all were tdvlsed to fol'ow her good example and have their lamps trimmed and burning when the bridegroom oomelh. "Hut now she 11 gone! Another robe is appropriated; another crown worn, a palm Is waved and greetings exchanged between those long purled." Closed with the hymn; '•Ahk'ep in Josus." The silver plato on tlie oanket was inscribed with the word "Mother," and some beautiful floral devlrei bore fra* graiiuestinjonytotheappieolationoftue worth and merit of tbe dvpaited. The bearers were: Messrs. D. R, Spark.", H. 0. Priest, 8. F, Connor, John D. Ho- The Republican publishes interviews this morning with a number of leading St. LouU merchants] In regard to local terminal facilities. Among others- Mr} W. E. Sohweppe, President of the Schweppe Grocery company, who said: "We of course n<ed freignt yards and freight depots along the levee. I am in favor also of railroads on the business s-t.-eets wherever they are needed. Nicholson said he would like one on Sixth street and 1 think he is right. A certain part of the city should be condemned for railroad purposes. We must remoraber that we »ro doing bus- iuens bore up and down ih) river front for almost fourteen miles and yet it is haul, bsul all ihe lime. The monetary con.ideration, as great as it may be, is not the greatest one, we should retuem* ber. I tell you the very fact that wo have railroads all Ih rough our city would be spoken of wherever the name of St Louis is spoken, and it would aid us very materially in getting hold of the Southwestern trade. Another thing I am fearing is the Central Missouri railroad, which now proposes to build a bridge across tho Mississippi river at Alton and connect with the Bee Line, which is a Vanderbilt monopoly, and which is working against St. Louis in favor of Western ciiies. If they would only build a bridge across the Missouri river at St. Charles and run down to the Chain of Racks' and connect with the roads that come over the Merchants' bridge and then go across to Alton it w'<uld be a Godsend for us In tbe way of transportation facilities. I have been watching these matters with uiuob Interest, but I hear now that ihe bridge will certainly bo built at Alton Instead of St. Charles." DIKD.
