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.
