Emporia, Sept. 0, 1870.
Rxadikq. This is the name of a new town
laid out in this county, on the Atchison, Tope
ka A Santa Fe railroad, about fifteen miles
northeast of here. There has been no Mow
about it, but we observed, in passing Hfast
week, that some fifteen or twenty new houses
had sprung up in a surprisingly short time.
Knowing the proprietors that are backing this
enterprise, we predict it will soon make a
point of considerable Importance.
The office of the Probate Judge of this coun
ty was made vacant on Monday last by the
resignation of P. M. Foote. Mr. F. has tilled
the office very creditably since last fail, and
now is obliged to resign on account of failing
health. He left immediately, accompanied by
his amiable lady, for the mountains of Colora
do and of California. We earnestly wish that
he may be restored to health and vigor by the
healthful airs of the Golden State, and return
to make his home In Emporia.

To acquire any adequate idea of the whole
sale and retail interests of Emporia, it is abso
lutely necessary to step into the hardware,
stove and tinware houae of E. B. Holderman A
Bro., first door north of Thk News office.
They have the largest stock of hardware aouth
of the Kaw, and they have stoves, wagons,
etc etc., for all creation. They can sell as
good an article at as low a price as any other
house west of St. Louis. Their character as
business men is too well known to need our
Patriotism. Many instances of the patriot
lam of communities during the late war, lave
been mentioned. But we have one in our own
county which beats all others that we have any
knowledge of. In a conversation at Hartford,
the other day, Mr. H. Vpdegraff, an old citizen
of Eagle creek, Informed us that out of fifty
six voters on Eagle and Four Mile creeks, in
the southern part of this county, forty-eight
went into the Union army to fight for their
country. There is probably not an instance on
record where so great a proportion of the vot
ing population entered the service.

appearance of the first number of The Daily
News, yesterday, was entirely satisfactory.
The pleasure evinced by the community, we
are glad so note, waa equal ta the surprise,
which we take as sn auspicioua omen. "You
hsve been very sly about this" pleasantly
greeted us everywhere. We have only to say
that the intention to issue the paper about
this time is not a late conception, but no prep
aration had been made and no type had been
set for it, not even a headline, until the day
before It went to press. The favor with which
it has been received is only an expression of
the earnest desire of the community, and we
are assured the necessity for and public appre
ciation of The Daily Emporia News will
very soon warrant Its enlargement.
Insane. A young man named Winfield S.
Silvers came to this city a few weeks ago, and
although destitute of money, he obtained board
at the Buckeye House. He soon obtained a job
at building a cistern, and contracted for others.
He worked iiidustriously and manifested a
commendable ambition to obtain larger con
tracts for building, spent much time in calcu
lating the cost of certain buildings, and seem
ed to feel sanguine of success and hopelul of
his future. About a week ago he manifested
considerable unrest, and for three nights did
not sleep. He then obtained some whisky and
became intoxicated. The next morning he
was extremely crazy, and it became necessary
to confine bim. Physician were called, and
be was pronounced Insane. In the city prison
he tore hi clothe from his person, but has not
shown any vicious disposition to those about
him. Some provision should be made for his
The cause of his Insanity is believed to be a
difficulty in hi family relations, combined
with bis financial troubles and his failure to
secure the contracts he had expected to obtain.

Magnificent. It was our pleasure to spend
a few minutes In the handsome millinery es
tablishment of Mrs. Newman the other day,
examining the wonderful works of art in that
line. The perfection to which the manufac
ture of artificial flowers has been brought is
one of the wonders of the age. The delicate
tints, brilliancy and harmonious blending of
colors, the imitation of nature in all the minu
tiae that attaches to the natural growth and
even accUent In the lives of the tender orna
ments of the natural world, are so skillfully
and tastefully portrayed as to surpass in beau
ty and form even the flowers they were made
to represent. Only the fragrance and micro
scopic peculiarities of the natural are wanting
In the artificial to render them equal in value
and attractiveness. The skill of human hands,
as demonstrated by the exhibitions of Mrs.
Newman and Mrs. Kidder, is not confined to
their flowers. W were shown a "perfect love
ot a bonnet," which our knowledge of terms
peculiar to the .world of women and fashion
Is too limited to attempt to describe. Suffice
It to say that it cost sixty dollar, and is the
prettiest object of the kind we ever beheld.
The point lace collars, gorgeous sashes, et cet
era, with which the fair sex adorn their per
sons, shown to us on this occasion excited alike
our wonder and admiration. The more sub
stantial necessities of domestic economy are to
be found in profusion in the store below. A
visit to this establishment, reader, will recom

they expect to start up with a new mill, and as
soon as the necessary arrangements can be
made, they will put in two run of burrs and

Henry Adams, who owns a farm on Allen
creek, four miles north of town, devoted two
acres of ground to gardening this season. A
fourth of an acre was planted to melouB, from
which he has sold upwards of eight hundred,
at an average of twenty-five cents each, and
thinks there were fully five hundred more
grown on the same patch or $325 worth in
all. How is that for high? We have seen
some of the melons, and they were as large as
ever we saw in any country. From less than
one acre of potatoes he sold $100 worth, and
now thinks he will have $50 worth of turnips
on the same ground. The balance of the
ground also paid well for a "dry season." .

Southern Kansas, and is widely and favorably
known, not only as the oldest but as the heaviest,
cheapest and best. The work turned out is the
manufacturer's best recommendation. We have
lately seen some fine double and single harness
from this establishment that would do credit to any
St. Louis manufactory. Bundrem's motto has al

quantity, quality or cheapness of goods. And
