Preparations for His Barial.
Headquarters Grand Abmy op
the Republic, Department
Wichita, Kan., July 23, 1885.
General Order )
No. 6. J
It is with profound sorrow that these
Headquarters learn of the death of our
eminent comrade, General U. S. Grant,
and, believing that the entire comrade
ship of this Department will join in show
ing respect for the noble deceased, by
proper memorial services, it is therefore
ordered that the Posts of this Depart
ment meet at their respective post rooms
or other places of public assembly, on
the day and hour named for burial, where
memorial services will be held in accord
ance with the service book of our order.
By command of
L. N. Woodcock, Ass't Adj't Gen.
State of Kansas, Executive Dep't,
Topeka. July 23, 1885. )
A telegram announces the death of
"Ulysses S. Grant.
This intelligence, although anticipated
for many months, will be received by the
people of this state with all the shock and
sorrow of a personal bereavement.
For nearly a quarter of a century past,
Ulysses S. Grant has been the first citizen
of the United States. His exalted patri
otism, his genius as a soldier, his brilliant
services as the Commander of our armies,
his honest and loyal administration of
the Presidency, and the purity and mod
esty of his private life these splendid
qualities, so signally illustrated during
his whole career, have filled the world
with his fame; and the people of every
civilized Nation will mingle their tears
with those of the citizens of this country
around his open grave.
As a mark of respect for his illustrious
memory, the Executive Council has di
rected that the State House be draped in
mourning for a period of thirty days, and
that the Executive Offices of this State
be closed on the day of his funeral. And
I do hereby suggest and request that the
people of Kansas assemble, on that day,
in churches, school houses, and other
places of public assemblage, there to do
fitting honor to the memory of the most
renowned soldier of the age, and the
First Citizen of the Republic.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto
subscribed my name, and caused to be
affixed the Great Soal of the State. Done
at Topeka, this twenty-third day of July,
in the year o'f Our Lord one thousand
eight hundred and eighty-five.
JNO. A. MARTIN.
By the Governor:
E. B. Ailex,
Secretary of State.
General Grant's funeral will take place
in New York City on the Sth inst.
Kiverside Park is the burial place.
The general's body is in charge of U.
S. Grant Post G. A. E.
There will hardly be an end to the
number of civil and military organizations
which will have a place in the funeral
precession. General Hancock has been
designated by the president to assume
command of tho procession.
By reference to our report of the rain
fall at this place for tho month of July, it
it will be seen that tho aggregate is six
and seventeen-hundredths inches. It has
also been so well distributed as not to
threaten for a day or an hour the injury of
the growing crops. Farmers express
the belief that an elegant corn crop is as
sured. But the water gauge does not re
veal quite all the water which fell here in
July. The rain of Thursday? the 30, was
very heavy; so much so that the gauge at
the railway depo, which holds two and
one-fifth inches, was overrun. Mr.
Moore, the gauger, thinks that about two
and a half inches fell during the day of
the 30. It rained, considerably in the
night, and the gauge, as can" be seen,
macks only- two and thirty-eight-hun-dredths
inches for both day and night
The boom is here to stay for nearly an
other year, at least.

Monday afternoon. He had reached

started down to North Millbrook to view

He had not become fairly seated in the

ride until the said-to-be drunken driver
caused the vehicle to take a sudden and
frightful jerk forward, throwing Mr.
Baker violently to the ground. The back
or the top of his head struck the ground
with great violence. The wonder is that
his neck was not brokeu. As it was, his
head, neck and body -were bruised se-'
-riously, and for several hours he lay
unconscious. Toward evening conscious
ness was regained, and he was barely
able to sit up. He recovered gradually,

Mr. T. J. Hinshaw has frequently asked

Times reporter has tarried there, and we
take great pleasure in publishing his
statement in full:
''On his return from Wa-Keeney this
week, Mr. Sam. A. Smith stopped awhile
at Mr. Hinshaw's, 7 miles this side of
Wa-Keeney. Mr. H. has a fine bunch of
cattle and is also a good farmer, but what
he prides himself on is his success in
growing fruit trees and vines. He has
only been on his farm three or four years,
but he has succeeded in raising raspber
ries, plums, &c, and has apple trees
growing and loaded with fruit, that are
only three years old from the seedling.
Mr. Smith brought one of the apples,
called Hinshaw's Favorite Seedling, down
with him, and we have seen it with our
own eyes. We speak of this matter sim

- Ness City Near, July Jfj:
Last Sunday morning Ed. Walters, of
Highpoint township, lost a horse in the
Walnut at Wooddell's crossing, and at.
the same time had a very narrow escape
from-losing his life. Mr. Walters had
started for Wa-Keeney, and in crossing
the stone bridge over which about afoot
of water was flowing his horse became
frightened and jumped from the fridge
on the up-stream side. After floundering
about for some time the horse was drawn
by the current under the stone arch and
swept away down stream, and drowned.
At the same time Mr. Walters was car
ried to the bridge, Tmt succeeded in catch
ing the stone and held his head above
water until his cries arrested the attention
of D. F. Wooddell and his father, who,
fortunately, were near the scene. - These
gentlemen quickly came to the aid of the
unfortunaie man, and although they were
able to reach him, their united strength
was not sufficient to overcome theforee
of the current which pressed Mr. Walter's
body beneath the stone arch. To their
efforts was soon added the help of another
party, but the three were not able to ex
tricate Mr. Walters from bis uncomfort
able and perilous position. At length a
long rope was procured and the three
persons above mentioned, with the aid of
Gilmore Kinney and others, attached it
to his body, and by going up the" stream
succeeded in rescuing the almost drown
ing man from what was a very near ap
proach to a watery grave.
