V WESTERN KAS. WORLD. W. 8. TILTON, - Ediior. Saturday, .March 21, 1885. Early grass we yet hope for. Last Tuesday was. St. Patrick's day. "Jack" Downing, Hays, called Tues day. See Dr. Scott's new advertisement. Isn't it a clipper? Sheriff Baker is fencing a quarter section of his Big creek valley land. "Well, this has been a rather cold week, with a north wind the most of the time. A. H. Blrir moved down the railroad Thursday morning, and back home in the evening. Osborn & Monroe have purchased of CoL Fellows the Grammar School build ing and lot. Lee Monroo took a run down to Kansas City on Monday, and has been gone all the week. Rev. Mr. Stajt will begin his preach ing at this place to-morrow, (Sunday.) He will preach at 11 o'clock a. m. and in the evening. Mr. J. C. "Wilson, of the southern part of Graham county, was a caller on Monday. He reports that a good mam strangers are now moving into that region. That new sign of McKnight Bros, ib a gorgeous affair. The stranger who would not halt to inspect it has no eye for cut-and-dried cuteness. Ducros painted the eign. Thursday evening, in "Wa-Koeney, Probate Judge Conger 'united in matri mony Jink Davis, of Scott county, Kan sas, and Miss Nannie "Wrighter, of Gove county. Of course, we cannot furnish, thi week, a report of the school entertain ment which came off last evening. We have no dougbt, though, that it was a grand triumph. It is a boy. v Postmaster Millard la claim to it as soon as ho saw it. It made its appearance at liis residence last Sat urday morning. It weighs 8 pounds, and the father steps high. Three wagon-loads of cattle hides, in front of Frick's livery stable a morning or two back, suggested that a teirible raage had run through the innocents perhaps on the range to the west. The drawing of the DucroB tigress painting came off on Friday of last week. W. B. McKnight, that "m$re boy," downed nearly fifty men with his number 27, and took the painting. Bev. E. 33. Elder, of the M. E. church at Ellis, preached at this place last Sun day, in the forenoon and ovening. We are told that he and Dr. Scott used to be neighbors in Evanston, HI. To a number who, on seeing the name of L. Ducros in the head engra vings of the "World, have asked us whether he sketched the design, we have responded, "Yes; we never send east to buy goods of the class which are for sale at home." School land in this county, it occurs to the World, is getting rather abnormally valuable in the minds of some fresh bidderf. At the sale at Treasurer Kelly's office, the fore part of the week, some oi tins class of land was inn up to 3.75 per acre. Wo have a lot of extra copies of this week's World. They are splendid things to send to friends and relatives in the East. If they don't conclude that a el ass of people who will enable a pub lisher to issue such a paper as this are worth traveling to see, you may mark us down as a poor guesser. It seems, from the Dodge Cowboy of last Saturday, that Gloyn, the insane man, had not, up to that time, reached Podge City. That paper had heard o! him when he was fifteen miles south of Ness City. Gloyn was then claiming to be gcing to Dodge. Deputy Sheriff Swem had also been to that place to look after Gloyn. Froni Mr. J. H. McQuown, who started to establish a mill in Wa-Keeney a few summers ago, and then concluded notto do so, we have just received this intelligence: 'T am a resident of Ellis ' county; located five miles east of Hays, at the new town of Toulon. You will please send my paper to Hays City, in stead of Kirkwood," (HI.) Mr. H. Skinner, of Eden township, has a valuable horse afflicted with what was pronounced glanders. H6 placed the horse under the care of J. Wagner, veter inary surgeon, of Wa-Keeney. When in town last Thursday, Mr. Skinner told us that the animal was almost well. Persons having horses afflicted with tins disease might do well to consult the doctor. Arcss City Kewt 14. Miss Lizzie Schwanback was thought to be dying Friday evening of last week. Nearly all the doctors, in town were sum moned to her bedside, and her parents, who live in the country, sent for. She was working at the Commercial House, and had thrownsome oxalic acid out of a tincup, dipped the cud into the water bucket, and taken a drink. The girls at tre hotel, we hear, had been warned of ib.3 poisonous nature of the contents of the cup; but Lizzie surely did not undpr ttand this. The next morning, Lizzi? was about as well aa usual. Getting orlr a little of the rank poison was her on Jr salvation for earth. In the partial eolipee.of the son on Monday last, between the houxg of eleven and twelve, that .luminary waa cut down to about the apparent dimensions and shape of a respectably-afced new moon.4 A nalo r naze, 11 such an expression be permissible, overshadowed the land here-' about. People were filled with curiosity to view the stranger. Some would take a glance at the eclipsed orb, and then throw their hands before their eyes as if trying to use them for a telescope.-Osborn drifted off into style, and useda scalloped lamp chimney through which to make his observation. Judge Conger feels as important about it as all get out, as the sayingjuns. He lays claim to a Plymouth Bock hen, which will reach her first year post this spring, and the said animal read about the action of Mr. Kelly's hen, and went forthwith and did likewise, if not a little better. In other words, she laved an egg which measured 6 1-4 inches one way and 8 the other, and weighed an even quarter of a pound. Next! Rev. Mr. Kincade, of Illinois, did not arrive in time to preach last Sunday, as we had been authorized to announce that he would. However, he did arrive in time to preach Wednesday evening, and has preached several times since. SCHOOL LAND SALE.
