THE WICHITA EAGLE, SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 25, 1910 NSW CROP OF WHEAT IS MOVING COSTER" MEETING : TUESDAY Always Better Values at the Operative Store i The Operative s Literal Offer will Cause a Sensation Amonrf all PAGE TWO Wichita Board of Trade Handles Two Cars From Temple, Okla., One Testing 59V2 Pounds. . MINNEAPOLIS MILL GRABS UP SHIPMENT The first consignment of thi3 year's wheat was sold on the Wichita market ; yesterday. Two car loads from Tem-! pie, Okla., and consigned to the Hack-! er Grain company was placed on the ! market and one car load of Xo. 2 hard i -Wheat weighing 53 1-2 pounds to the ' bushel was 'sold to the Kemper Grain : company for the Pittsburg Mills at Minneapolis, Minn., for $1.12, delivered on track -at Minneapolis. This price netted the seller 94 cent9 per bushel at Temple, Okla., and is a pretty good price for new wheat. They seem to have had less rain at Temple and the new wheat was dry and in grod milling condition. Several car loads from Temple are on the way to this market and commission men expect a considerable amount of new wheat will be sold on the Wichita market this week. It is, however, hardly probable that very much of it will be In as good milling condition as the car load sold yesterday. o IT IS TO BE WORTH WHILE Winfield Chautauqua This Year Full of Instructive Entertainment. The announcement that the Winfield Chautauqua will meet on such and such a date, does not ordinarily mean much to some people especially to those who have not given the matter any appreciable amount of thought. Their idea is that a Chautauqua is a place where a bunch of school-teachers and club folks go to hear a lot of "cut and dried" wisdom that really has nothing to recommend it, outside of a lot of high-sounding, empty platitudes; or where they absorb as much as possible of "long-winded" lectures on abstruse topics that will be of no earthly use to the hearers, either in this world or the next. But this is entirely the wrong conception of the aim and ideals of this assembly. Their lectures are planned to-give each and all of the hearers new thoughts and Ideas on the higher things of life, and also on practical, everyday subjects those things thy will have need of, In their daily lives. This year, for instance, they will have lectures on Home Economics, given by Miss Francis Brown, head of the department of home economics of the Kansas State agricultural college. In which will be told the best and most approved ways for doing the various things that are vitally necessary in the successful management of the home. Rural community problems is another timely subject which is ably treated in its various phases by Rev. Wm. B. lampe, and Prof. Walter Burr of the Kansas stTte agricultural college, at Manhattan. To Bible students will be especially welcome the news that Dr. Camden Cobern, for many years honorary sec-; retary of an Egyptian exploration ex-j pedition which discovered many marvelous historical facts, has been secured by the committee in charge. His "lectures will be among the most interesting of the sertes. Child-welfare in all its branches, comprising moral, mental, and physical education for all types and ages of boys nd girls will be carefully gone over by Miss Nina L.amk!n, of the Northwestern university, Evanston. 111., assisted by Frank Root, physical trainer of the Winfield High school. Kindergarten work in this connection, will be in the care of Miss Elizabeth Wilson, .of Kansas City, a teacher of long experience In this line. Of unusual interest will be the course of lectures on the educational development of the mountaineers of Kentucky. Thes lectures will tell in a vivid way. by one who has been there and has worked with these people, how their education has been in a great majority of cases, accomplished and the difficulties they surmounted. The Winfield Chautauqua enters upon Its thirtieth session this year. It will be held from June 29 to July 9 inclusive.

Main DROP YEARLY MODEL CAR Henceforth There Will Be No "Jones Six" of '16 Or '17 But Just "Jones Six," An Important change has come to the Jones Motor Car company. This change is the- passing of the yearly model. "While automobile manufacturers have been engaged In getting enough material to produce cars to meet the demand, one of the most important changes which has taken place in the industry has been passed by unnotlce-ed," says J. J. Jones, president of the local manufacturing concern. "Year after year there have been attempts at meetings of the national association to eliminate this alleged yearly model. These efforts alway failed. Last January several of the larger companies set the pace and now; nearly all of the progressive companies have abandoned this bad practice of the Sacred Mountain To Be Reforested Chinese Emperor Shun Offered Sacrifices On Elevation 23 Centuries Before Christian Era. Tainanfu, Shantung Province, China, June 24. Mount Talshan, the famous sacred mountain of China where Emperor Shun offered sacrifices to heaven 23 centuries before the Christian Era, is to be reforested through an effort inaugurated by the Chinese department of agriculture and heartily supported by Christian missionaries and Chinese educators. This sacred mountain, which rises 6,000 feet above the sea level, and has long been sought by tourists because of the wonderful contour of the peak and" Its historic temples, was denuded centuries ago of trees and Its sides have been washed and cut by the freshets no longer checked by trees and grass.

GETTING AWAKENED TO ADVANTAGE OF OIL FIELDS if Wichita fell down on the job of giv ing her soldier boys a rousing send off. We couldn't have sent them away under more depressing circumstances they had been going on a disgraceful task, instead of the greatest duty of all, that of serv ing their country with their lives. But we can make up for that neglect. A movement has been started to look after the wants of those dependent on the soldiers, while the latter are away at the front. It is probable that congress will enact a bill making provision lor the support of those left behind. But, even if it does, there is need for action by the peo ple of Wichita also. Red tape is always tedious! Rigid rules don t meet all cases. Wherever the government fails, Wichita should be prepared to step in. And, our mayor to the contrary notwithstanding, there should be nothing of charity about it. Our soldiers want no charity, only the square thing. And we should see that they get it. Efforts to secure the co-operation of the city's three chief organizations, the Wichita club, the Rotary club and the Kansas club, in the campaign to give Wichita and its opportunities publicity, launched by the Real Estate Dealers association, will be made at a mass meeting of business men early this week. Practically all preparations were completed by the men back of the movement yesterday. The meeting likely will be called for Tuesday night. Leading bankers and business men have all signified intentions to co-operate with the present movement. They realize that in order to utilize the oil fields as a factor in adding to the city's growth its opportunities must be put before the people of the country in such a manner as will make certain of their being fully appreciated. Data relatiner to Wichita and the opportunities its oil fields offer to both men and capital is now being prepared and will be sent broadcast throughout the country. Wichita's oil fields will be utilized chiefly in its publicity and the public's attention will be focused upon the districts to the south and southwest of the city, where immediate development work is projected, as well as the developed fields along the Walnut river. It is realized by the business men behind the campaign that the development of these newer fields will make of Wichita a real oil center. Consequently every effort will be put forth to ' Impress upon investors that the possibilities of fortunes to be won in the oil fields about the city are still as great as ever. The public also will be made fully acquainted with the fact that large fortunes have already been .won and that as a result of the past -year's development oil to the value of approximately f31,500 is being produced here daily. ft Crraham Bays Cafe Robert Graham, who recently sold out his restaurant in the sixth block on East Douglas avenue, after cleaning up a small fortune on 25-cent meals, has again entered the cafe business.

The Jones Motor Motor Car company has broken away from this practice of having yearly models and I for one, can see the vast amount of benefit to our own company and particularly to the consumer. "I can see no reason why a few minor changes made to justify the announcement of new yearly model, say the 1917 car, should be allowed through the mere change of a model name, to depreciate over night a purchaser's investment. No more can I understand why a manufacturer should hold up improvements six months to a year, depriving the public of their benefit, just so he might announce a nw annual model latfr. Nor can T justify a policy which made a dealer sell his customers one car one- day and an improved car tomorrow. These faults appeared to me as radical faults in automobile merchandising. Hence, the 'Wichita-made car has eliminated this feature." o FIRST TRIP OX TRAIX NEW LOCATION n ? 1 am now in mv new office !n the LJl1. c e Theater liuuding, rooms ;,and 4, 215 East ;!figlas Av., and I invite any man, .'j woman or child suffering from , c h r o n I c. blood. skin, organic, or functional disease .or condition. to consult me free.
