Indebted for the foundation of this
academy, which has in three short
years grown to be aa institution of
considerable reputation and has a very
respectable patronage, which is rapidly
growing. The total number of stu
dents for last year was 81, pupils from
Nebraska, Colorado, Missouri, Con
necticut, Minnesota and Illinois being
sprinkled among their Kansas school
mates. The academy now has two
buildings. The dormitory is a new
brick building, three stories high,
heated by steam and with a capacity
for boarding and rooming 75 students.
The old public school building In used
for recitation rooms. Plans are on
foot for the construction of a large
third building, which will contain
recitation rooms, an. assembly room,
library, labratory, and perhaps some
sleeping rooms for students. The
academy buildings are situated in the

After the dinner hour Mr. Rodell
pulled up at the hotel with Amos'
canopy-lopped carriage and a fast

rkiden to Llndsborg with us, was In
vited to accompany us. We were
whisked out of town at a rapid gait.
We commend "Mr. Rodell as a driver
to all whom it may concern. He is
not only a successful driver but an
interesting guide. What he don't
know about that country Is not worth
knowing! Drifting soutbwestward
we cominepced falling in with a large
acreage of corn and broomcorn. The
Swedish peorSlens a rate possess this
secUon of til country. They are
large ahd prosperous farmers. They
have farmed according to approved
methods, and their culture of the land
is the best the country produces.
They came without money a few
years ago, and now they have abund

and sheds for storago of broomcorn.

What we have said of tho Swedish

a great extent of tho Swedish farmers
In Saline county. They arc among the
most thrifty farmers we have. But to
return to tho trip. Mr Collins was
much struck with the change that
had oome-pvor the country since lie
was buffalo hunting in that direction
We believe he utated that tho laic Mr.
Maxwell, living on Sharp's creek,
was the only sattlcr then in all that
region. Striking tho Smoky Hill we
came to the elegant farms of Mcdsr.
Beau aud Duncan. And there we
saw houses with front yards thut

ful maple trees, and if wo mistake not
evergreens shaded a well kept yard,
supplied with flower beds and shrub
bery, while neat fences encompassed
the spacious dwellings Why cannot
our farmers pay more attention to the
front yard luxuries? Trees, shrubs
and flowers are home comforts which
are by no mpans (bo good for the farm
We saw many other attempts nt front
yard improvement, upon our trip. It
shows full well that in a few years
Utae a perfect paradise of enchant
ment these Smoky Hill river farms
In due course of time we arrived at
the pleasant home of John P. Rodell,
the father of our host, who located
there In 18C0, when buffalo occupied
the land. There we found many well
kept acres of rich farm land ; neatly
trimmed hedges ; freshly painted and
whitewashed buildings and barns : a
fine orchard with the best and largest
apples we have seen this year ; a grand
little grove of walnut trees, and beau
tiful lines of trees on the highway.
It is but fair to accord to Mr. Rodell
tho honor of being a first-class farmer.
Not only this, but In a great measure
it Is to his zeal and persistence that
the honor is due for the erection of
FJIEW0NT SWEDISH LUTHERAN
in which he very properly takes so
much pride. Through the courtesy
of the excellent and worthy pastor of
this church, Rev. J. Soleen,wo were
shown about a church edifice, the like
of which we have not In Sallna.
There it stands In that beautiful valley
a wonderful pieco of architecture, with
a lofty spire (some 133 feet high we
believe) which is seen for many miles
around. The building was commenced
in 1SS1. It Is constructed in ttie most
substantial maunerofn beautiful red
prick uianufaetiireil Just across the
road from the church. The si7o of tho
auditorium) 40x80 fret, anil i.i sur
rounded on thrcottliit-s by n gallery.
It is safe to Say that the seating capac
ity of the church when completed will
be 1400. It is so near finished that
services arc held each Sabbath In the
building. It lias thUt far cost over
f 17,0b0, and It Will cost about $8,000
more to complete It. A bell weighing
1800 pounds hangR in tho tower, and
its beauUfal tones can be heard miles
away The congregation Is now talk
ing of putting in a $3000 organ, and
are consulting Mr Melbcrt, of Balina,
regarding its construction. Speaking
of the organ reminds us that Frank
Hawklnson, well-known lu Sallna, Is
chairman of tho organ fuud commit
tee. We ascended the tower, and
from its height saw as beautiful a vis
ion aa those who looked out over the
"Promised Land." It was a beauti
ful panorama of prairie, farm houses,
trees, streams and highlands.
Resuming our westward course we
passed by many farms whose owners
bear the names of men who in years
gone, traded at Balina; for Sallna was
then (before the S. de S. W. broke us
all up) the trade center for all this re
gion of country. It was a rapid and
short drive which took us to the town
named, we believe, for Marquette,
Mich., atid given by our old friend
Judge Underwood, whom It was our
fbrtuna to meet as we alighted. Mar
quette la not particularly a pretentious
town, but Is quite a lltUe trading
point There is here abo a large frame
church owned by the 8wedish Luth
erans. Thb village boasts of two or
three stores. Ferlen & Leksell of
Sallna have a branch store here and a
good trade. A fine water power and
a flourishing flouring mill bring the
farmers for ''grist" from all directions.
Mr. Hatton, formerly of Sallna, has
charge Of tho manufacturing depart
ment The Water fall is eleven feet
said id be tba best on the Smoky Hill.
The return trip to Llndsborg was
commenced about 3 o'clock p. Jr.,
which gave us ample.Umo to arrive la-
time to catch the Sallna train, and
take In more of the town prior to oar
departare. We were exceedingly well
pleased With our visit and more than
delighted with the royal treatment
reselval at the hands of Mr. Rodell.
