Coffman. from Salina, who is stopping at the Fifth Avenue hotel for a few days, is one of the pioneers of the state. He came to this part of th country in the year 1855. The first that he ever saw of Topeka was when as a boy of 17 he made hia first trip from Kansas City, Mo., to Santa Fe. N. M.. over the far famed Santa Fe trail. There were only a very few houses, or rather cabins, in this vicinity at the time, and he says that only occasionally did a train of over land freighters camp on the trail south of here. The first man Mr. Coffman met In Topeka was John Billings, who In partnership with his brother, was keeping a small general store down on Clean out vcur or warehouse of EflST TOFiKfl HOIESI roaches and other vermin hviisintr teams' Electric Rat and Roach Past ThU ; Cn Death to all these vermin.

Sheila barger when the Shawnee mill was built and remarked that Shella barger had the first steam power "flour mill in this section of the country, to hi knowledge. In 186 he went overland to Califor nia with the mule team freighters. The company that he happened to be with sold the wagons at Salt Lak City to the Mormons, and traveled on through the mountains on mule back to San Francisco. He remarked: "I have been asked again and again why it was that there were so many tracks side by side in many parts of the trail. It was simply because the Indians bothered us a good deal and in order to prevent them from pouncing i down on the rear of the train, which some times was very long, we bunched up and traveled eight abreast. In this way we were all together and were ready for them." Mr. Coffman is a man well along In years but still vigorous. He saya that he is a pioneer, always has been, and is proud of it.
