Quite a large amount of looso real estate
changed hands yesterday for which no deeds
were given. The wind blew furiously from
the south, and on the street not frequented
by Mr. O. C. Daisy's spriidtlers one was sub

the gale began to subside, and by the evening
hours was fairly i cspectable.
A number of beautiful shade trees of tho
city wero injured. Thu sigus along the
streets were tossed about rather vigorously,
and a fe r: started to accompany tho visitor
out of the citj'. Tho gentleman wearing a
white collar was as likely to bo relieved of
his hat as any one else. Tho stiff hats, how

A despairing spirit seemed brooding over
our happy valley yesterday, all day. The
heavens were darkly threatening. Weiredly
the trees tossed their branches of fading
foliage, and, as with a wan and lustcrless
face, the sun &auk amid tho heavy floating
shadows which fringed in gloom the low
western horizon, tha winds seemed burthened
with whispered recitals of tho dying season.
In them wo caught tho echo of tho song of
the bird that had flown, and the departing
sigh of tha bloom of a summer that is gone
forever. Fateful dirgo of the year, solemn
portals of the night, spectres of a life's hopes,
apparitions of all aspirations, how they fall
from the tombro folds cf thy robes, oh,

THE FARMERS LOAN AND TRUST COM
l'ANY OF KANSAS.
We announced in these columns some
weeks since that the stockholders of the
Farmer' Loan and Trust Co., at their annual
meeting, had voted to increase the capital
from one hundred thousand dollars to two
hundred aud fifty thousand dollars. Tho new
stock, wo are informed, has been placed iu
New England. Pennsylvania and this state,
and tho subscribers to it are now paying in
the par value of the shares, one hundred dol
lars each. By the first of November this
company will have a solid full-paid capital
of a quarter of a million dollars, making it
(one of i) the largest financial institutions in
the state, and one of such magnitude as would
b3 a credit to any of the older states.
The business of this company is the nego
tiations of loans on farms and city property.
It has had extraordinary success, v. hich is to
bo attributed to the well-directed energy and
sterling integrity of its officers west and east.
T. O. Moffet, tho president, is a clear-headed
business man, and is honest to the core. He
is also the head of the Ashland bank, and he
has just completed, to tho popular satisfac
tion, two terms as treasurer of Harper coun
ty. John F. Reese, tho vice-president, is ono
of tho wealthy citizens of Wichita, having
made bis fortune here; and although but a
young mau, has retired from active business
affairs. In him are blended the oouserva-
tivism of the native Pennsylvanian, and tho
broa I views of the adopted Kansan. James
M. Bent, the secretary, of Anthony, is w idely
Lnoinn iu southern Kansas, aud is admirably
fitted for tho performance of i ho intricate
details incident to tho duties of his position.
He is a prominent official in tho agricultural
sociot at Anthony, besides being interested
in other enterprises of public usefulness. T.
IL.Stevens, the treasurer, is a pioneer settler
of Harper county, and has been a commis
sioner of the county since its organization.
He is president of the First Natioual bank of
Anthony, and. is also interested in mercan
tile pursuits there. Frank Evans, formerly
of Wellington, but now a resident of Wich
ita, is the general examiner of thy lands
upon which tho company loans money. He
is amply qualified, by long and successful
experience, for this important tntst, and is
recognized as a man of clear discernment
and perfect honesty. Moreover he is univer

with this.stato. who have "grown up with
tho country, and w iihout whoso co-operation

The far-seeing sagacity of the solid men of

the golden opportunities of safe and profit

by the bread acres of the west, and th states
tnis side of the Mississippi river rejoice to-
