E. TYNER'S. KAKSAJ CITY COMMEKCIAL CLUB, The special train bearing the Kan sas City Commercial Club and many other prominent business men arrived in Baxter Springs Tuesday evening about 6:30. It was met here by a large number of our representative men, women and handsome girls with an unknown quantity of cordial greet ings and a large number of vehicles of various descriptions in which the vis itors were given a lively spin through our city to the river aud back to the train. The twentv minutes allotted to Baxter Springs by the managers of the excursion were utilized to tne oesi possible advantage and the visitors certainly departed with the best Im pressions of our city they could possi bly form iu the brief glance they took at it. The train was a special and stopped at nearly every towu of any impor tance on the Memphis line, the object being to better acquaint the business men of Kansas City with some of the towns and people whose trade they enjoy. The Kansas City Globe reporter had the following to say about the stop at Baxter Springs, which, barring the population statement, is very good : "At Rivter Snriuffs The sun was just sinking when this place was reacned, out mere were carnages in waiting for everyone and the city was hastily viewed. It has a DODUlation of 4000 people. Magnificent water power, mineral springs, nounng muis, electric Jijrbt works were some of the ihi. Thfl Missouri Pacific line from Chetopa to Joplin through here Is projected and anticipated as a oig thing for the town." GIRABD SCHOOL PICNIC All of the pupils of the Girard pub lic school, accompanied by tbeir teachers, members of the board of ed ucation aud many other citizens of that city came to Baxter Springs Wednesday for an outing on a special train consisting of seven coaches and a baggage car. The train was packed full of pttople, nearly all school chil dren, and arrived here about 11 o'clock. The uicnickers were met at the depot by a large delegation of Baxter people and the procession which formed with the Girard band at the head and marched with flying banners to our Springs ParK was a signt to see. It is estimated that the train brought 1000 persons, who heartily enjoyed roving through our numerous groves and viewing the many beautiful scenes of nature which abound in and about Baxter Springs especially at this time of the year. After a glorious basket picnic in the psrk the visitors scattered hither aud thither about town, some going boat ing on the river, others to the dam while some took a drive to the terri tory. v At about 5 o'clock the whistle sounded the warning that the time for returning homeward had come and soon afterward the large proces sion of little folks with happy hearts and probably tired limbs followed the band to the depot and soon were whirling along on their homeward way. They had a most delightful day and from all appearauces had a most delighful time. The teachers and members of the Girard school board certainly deserve much credit for their excellent management of this pleasant event. CHEBOKEE COUNTY BREEDERS' AS SOCIATION. fin Anril lfi a meetinff' of the Chero- kee County Breeders' Associsuon was hnld in Rixter Bnrinfirs and officers w M -Hr-- a ulectttd as follows : President.

Pnranant to a call of committee a meeting was held in Baxter May 20 at which the desirsbility of changing the fair from a county fair to a district fair was discussed and it was decided to work to that end. The aAcretarr was instructed to cor reanond with the Droper persons in aurroundinr counties expiaininr the object of the association and request- tng their attendance at ue next meet ing Jane 10. Now we want the people of this county and especially of Baxter Springs and vicinity to wan up ana take bold in earnest and make the fair a annrAam. Wa caa a no reason whv a permanent fair on a large scale to draw a long ways csn not be estab lished at Baxter. Remember the meeting June 10 and attend it and when roo leave It you will have fair on the brain. G. E. Rccxia, Sec NUMBER 15. MEMORIAL DAY, 1890. Owing to the fact that Memorial Day came upon our regular printing day this year aud to give any account of it we were compelled to hold our - paper one day late it is now impossi ble for us to giro the occasion the writeup its importance merits. Al though within the past few years the custom of holding memorial services in esch and every town in the country, whether old soldiers are buried there or not, has become quite general and we do not expect the number of visi on from our sister towns that we did in former vears. upon this occasion, still thero was the usual number of people in Baxter yesterday, who en tered into the celebration of the occa sion with noticeable manifestations of earnestness. The weather was somewhat threat ening, but this does not seem to haro kept many away, for the early morn ing brought a stream of vehicles from almost every direction into our city. The 10 o'clock train brought Col. T. B. Haughawout of Carthage, orator of the day, and a number of people from Webb C'ty, Joplin and other towns along the line. About 11 o'clock the Melrose and Keelville district delegation arrived headed by the Four Mile Cornet Baud in full uniform, which presented quite an imposing appearance as it moved down Military street The Lowell people also came en masse, a large number of them riding in a large canvas covered wagon drawn by four horses. This might have been mistaken for Noah's ark. It was a noticeable feature, anyway. After dinner the regular services began. The fast waning and tottering remnant or a once proua ana crave soldiery was drawn tip in line near G. A. R. ball on south Military street and slowly followed the lead of the band in a gentle shower to Spring- Park. Here were assembled several hundred people. The exercises had hardly been begun when a lively shower caused many to seek shelter. The program as pre-arranged was cloBely followed, however. Col.. Haughawout spoke most eloquently for over an hour and was listened to attentively. Immediately after this service tho people formed in proces sion and moved to the national ceme tery where the G. A. IL ritual services' were performed and the graves of the dead defenders of our union once more made beautiful with sweet flowers of various hues which were placed by the sons and daughters of the veterans. This part of the program was unusu ally impressive and interesting ana notwithstanding the approaching storm which threatened, was witnessed by a large number of people. The occasion passed off very quietly and the police force bad a remarkably easy time of it Intoxicants were very scarce and not a single arrest was made during the day or night. Hardly had the services closed until a severe wind and rain storm came on from the northwest which did no littfo damage. The jain fell In torrents for an hour or more aud the wind blew sufficiently hard to damage many trees and other property iu this vicinity. Many of our visiting friends must certainly have caught a severe duck-' ing from this storm on their way home. J. 9. TKIBLEY8 REMOVAL.
