The Daughters of the American Revolu tion of this city have been given a triangle in the Central Riverside park and will decorate the grounds and place in the center of the triangle a large sun dial. Some time ago the members of the society in this city offered to decorate a plot of ground in the park, to furnish flowers end Fhrubbery and build walks and a suitable monument. The park commissioners decided to give to the society the plot of ground made by the three drives at the northwest corner of the circle and just nouth of the deer pens. This triangle is made by the circle drive itself, and the two roadways leading from it and connecting with the river drive which enters North Riverside park. This triangle has a base of forty feet and the two sides are sixty feet long. From four sides there will be walks leading to the sun dial. Around the outer edge of the triangle there will be a box hedge and the flower plots in the different divisions of the triangle made by the walks will be filled with old-fashioned flowers, Sweet Williams, pinks and other flowers, so popular many years ago. This will make an unique plot in the park and will be one of the most beautiful spots in the entire system. The members of the society will furnish the dial and the flowers and the commissioners will see that they are properly cared for. The sun dial is one of the largest in the country. It was made in Massachusetts and arrived a few days ago. It is stored at the Burton warehouse. As soon as the base arrives the dial will be placed in the triangle. The base is to be of polished marble and on this will be cut appropriate words, showing when it was given and by whom presented to the park. During the week the commissioners re ceived a large shipment of dogwood trees from Fayetteviile, Ark. These trees were presented to the park by x''. G. Gully of Fayetttsville. ilr. Gully was here soma weeks ago and after being shown the parks announced that he would like to make the city a present. G. M. Dickson of the park board accepted the proposal of air. Gully. Isot only were the trees secured by Mr. Gully, but he paid the freight to get them here, and all the park commissioners had to do was to set them cut. The dogwood trees are some of the most beautiful trees of the southern for ests. They have white, leaves. They thrive best in heavy timber and they will be set out in the timber in North River ide. The workmen are busy arranging the triangle at the north end of the Grieffen tein bridge, which will bear an entirely new set of flowers this year. They are also draining the lily pond and after cleaning out the pond new tub-ess of lilies will be set out. ORRINE SAVED THE HOME Helped the Drunkard to a Cure and Made the Wife a . Happy Woman. "For five years a mechanic earning $22.50 per week had not taken a full pay envelope home. He was induced to try Orrine," writes V. K. Schmidt & Co., one of the leading druggists of Grand Rapids, Mich. "He wad faithful to the medicine, following the directions and a complete cure followed. "What appeals most to the thinking r.erson is the prosperity for the family which can be attributed directly to Orrine. The man became worth more to his firm, received an advance in pay and about a year ago purchased a home on the contract plan. By the aid of a saving wife, he is able to carry out his contract, and when in the store a few days ago, said in sixty more weeks the home will be entirely paid for." This shows the good results following the Orrine treatment. The- remedy is absolutely harmless, is thoroughly scientific and is so uniformly successful that in every box is a registered guarantee which entitles you to a refund of your money if Orrine fails to effect a cure. Treatise on how to cure drunkenness free on request. Orrine Co., Washington D. C. Orrine is in two forms. No. 1 which can be given secretly without . the patient's knowledge; No. 2 in pill form for those who wish to be cured. The price of each is $1, and both are sold under a guarantee. Use Orrine, quit drinking and make wife and family happy and prosperous in their own home. Orrine is for sale by Higginson Drug Co., 400 East Douglas avenue. minr iifAirr nnumn I nuuc IIMVL UUlillllU IN ARKANSAS RIVER Wall of Water Due to Reach Wichita This Morning BEFORE TEN O'CLOCK Telephone Messages Told of Great Flood. benefit district.

There are a number of important matters which will be considered but unly urgent questions will be taken up. The new fire limit ordinance will come up fnr passage.

The pension was procured in one month and fourteen days after the application was made out and this is probably the shortest time that a pension has ever been secured by a YVKhitan. A telephone message from Hutchinson to the Easli yesterday afternoon announced that a huse wave of water with an actual front eleven feet bigh was sweeping down the Arkansas river, and that it should reach 'Wichita early this morning. At three o'clock a telephone message from a farmer livrig along the river near Colwich stated that the wave had passed his farm a few minutes before he called up the Eagle office. The water is traveling at the rate of five miles per hour and it should reach Douglas avenue between nine and ten o'clock this morning. The wave of water is becoming dimUished in height about four inches for every ten miles, so that It should be about nine feet high when it reaches Wichita. The heavy snows in the mountains and the western part of the state is the cause of the sudden rise in the river. For several days hig'a water has been reported from numerous points up the river, but the extent of tie flood was not known un til yesterday afternoon when the message from Hutchinson was received. It is slid that the huge wave is a. most beautiful sight as it rolled down the river, back of it being a great sheet of ' water which fills the river bed almost to the level of the basks. At low planes along the river the water has overflowed, but there has been little damage thus far, as none of the crops likely to be seriously damaged by wattr have been planted. The rise in the river Till not continue for more than a few nouns. At eight o'clock last night the river had fallen at Hutchinson so that there will be no danger of continued high water here. The highest point of the flood Is at the very crest of the wave which is scheduled to reach this city this morning, i A peculiar coincidence with the coming of this great wave of water is that myri ads of frogs are migrating northward up the Arkansas river and this morning Wichitaons will have an opportunity to witness a most unusual sight today. A migration of thousands of frogs is sched uled to reach this iity this morning, and from the reports cming from points below Wichita the river bed is literally filled with young frogs. They are traveling northward, leaving devastation in their path. The frogs are led; by a number of old ones who have just lug themselves out of their winter lairs. 411 of the frogs have been hatched during this season and the cause of the early appearance is the over flow of the I.-itile Arkansas river. The warm water of this strea mhas warmed the ground about the, banks of the stream where the eggs of tht) frogs were laid and the bright sunshine with the aid of the warm water has caused the eggs to hatch, and the old frogs to lig- their way out of the holes into which; they went at the beginning of winter. ; A number of frogs have already been seen about the river here, but today Wichita may see hundreds of thousands of these amphibians. At Tulsa, I. T., the frogs were first noticed and the army of "hoppers" has been gathering strength aa it has passed up the streams. The vanguard of the army reached Arkansas City Thursday night and hail reached Mulvane yesterday afternoon. A: the rate the frogs are traveling they should reach Wichita about ten o'clock this morning. At midnight last night John Snooks, a farmer living near the bank of the river two miles north of Derby, telephoned to the Eagle office that the vanguard of the army of frogs had reached his farm. Mr. Snook was greatly exdted over the an- pearance of the frogs, lie said that they wcre overrunning every hit of grass on the islands and near the river bank. They were even gnawing- at the roots of trees standing on the bank of the stream. The horde of frogs number many thousands. At Arkansas Citf the frogs were thirty hours in passing the city and from the reports which came to the Eagle office yesterday the river bed is covered with frogs for a distance of eleven miles. They are young and are able to tarvel very fast. It is said that the rivpr w; i literally covered with green frogs, and j that the appearance of the river is com- i plctelv changed from tht usual yellow j sand to a moving mass cf green as far i as the eye can reach. It will be an in- ' spiring sight this afternoon to watch that ' vast army of frogs pass up the river. The i frogs should appear at the Doughs ave- j r.ue bridge between nine and ten o'clock ! this morning "There Are Circles Within Circles" And it's impossible to name any one thing- that brings success to a man, but a good appearance is the first step. Now, that you may know how, beginning Tuesday we will give a series of SHORT TALKS on HOW TO DRESS. In other words we will tell you, in five chapters, how to present a "good appearance." Talk No. 1 will be on the cut of the coat; see Tuesday morning's paper for it. HERMAN (Zb HESS SELL FOR LESS I .
