The Company HUTCHINSON, KANSAS. We herewith show you a few styles of our Refrigerators, and this advertisement will continue but for a short time, it will be well for you to make a note of this after reading, so that if you are not ready to purchase at once you will remember us when you are ready to look into the merits of the Peerless. You are well aware that it costs money to make honest goods, ard as long as the Hutchinson Manufacturing Company make Refrigerators they will be made that way, and if in course of time we find that our business is not appreciated we will discontinue to manufacture them, as we propose to make the best or none. So far our sales have been beyond our expectations, so much so that we are making a larger number now than at any previous time. Yoa will hear this Patent Refrigerator spoken of, and that with rcnioveable lining, etc., so as to be cleaned. Use common sense in constructing a Refrigerator, get a pure air circulation and let the impurieties be carried off in the wastewater, and you will not have to keep your Refrigerator in the back alleys for fear that people will conclude on coming in the house that you have started a tannery on your premises. We have made several improvements to our Refrigerator this year, and expect to do so from time to time, as we feel confident that they are second to none, and for the benefit of some of our competitors making claims we still have confidence to offer the following on the Peerless: We will donate any charitable institution �50.00 if there is a better Refrigerator than the PEERLESS in the market to-day, and $50.00 to the party who can produce it. The qualities to be based on the economical use of ice, cleanliness and the preserving qualities of whatever is placed in the provision chnmber. As mouey talks it is useless to say more.

No one expects to find broad nnd regulur streets, with noble piles of buildings erected on both sides-buildings and srreeta rivaling in size and style of architecture those of some of the chief towns of England. Tho principal business street, Commissioner street,-extends for nearly two miles. It contains some of the llnoat buildings of tho city-tho new club, the I Jan I: of Africa, tho now Exchuugo buildings, two largo hotels, and several two and three storied erections occupying whole blocks and intended solely for business and for ofllces for tho hundreds of brokers and speculators who Und occupation there. All the empty spaces are being rapidly (Hied up with buildings of brick and stone, and tho chief sound that is heard above the shouting of tho brokers on 'Change is the noise of the bricklayer's trowel and the clink of the stonecutter's chisel THE WONDERFUL TOWN. The town proper h almost entirely occupied with husiin-ss premises; tho inhabitants have had to befnko themselves to tho outskirts to And suitable residences. Consequently, on the .'dopes of the hills on one side and at the extremities of tho city, several townships have sprung up. The principal of these is ntK.rufonUmi, an estate belonging to the water rompuny, which has been artistically laid out in allotments, on which substantial and pietuivsqus residences have been erected, and this forms tho llelgravia of Johannesburg. Tho city boasts of an existence of only two and a half or three yeara, and already it possesses an ample supply gf water laid on by pipes in tho houses and conducted through the principal streets from tho reservoir on tho hill above Doornfontein, to which it Is pumped up from several springs at a considerable distance from each other in the lower lauds. As yet the streets are in darkness at night, deluding for light on the oil lamps df tho host of canteens to bo found in every street. But a gas company has l>een formed. One of tho priucljuil features of Johannesburg is tho number of largo open sjhicos that have been provided for market squares und recreation grounds. Tho principal of theee i.s in the center of tho city. This forms the market square proper. Every morning It is Ailed with ox wagons ludeu.with produce, which the farmers bring in from all parts of tho Transvaal, and even from Natal, the Cape colony and the Free state, to be sold to tho highest bidder. The market house, a large brick building, covers tho center of this square, consisting of the market house proper, a large hull about 200 feet long and 100 feet broad, anil Burrouuded by coffee stalls. All tho materials used in the buildings, all tho doors und windows, the wood and the iron have been imported from England und America, und have been transported on ox wagons over 300 miles before reaching their destination. The price of labor is higher than m any other part of the world, and many dlfllcultlua have had to be overcome before a brick or a stone could be laid in the city. Perhaps the enterprising merchants of New York may also see that thero U here a vtwt field for trade, and those who uro experienced in the art of mining will also find that there is plenty of scope for their genius in a tUld where over ttOO gold companies have been floated, and many of them are at a low financial ebb, through the want of men of skill to deal with the refractory ore* that are being met with at increasing depths from the but-faoa-Klmberloy (South Africa) Latter.
