He has a full stock, at liberal prices, and is one of the best and most reliable business men in Manhattan. He j doing a straightforward, honest business, and those who de.il with him need have no fears of being deceived. Those going from this section to mill at Manhattan should give him n call. He takes all Westt.ru Kansas " shinplasters" at par. !Tj" On Tuesday evening, March 9th, the house of J. L. Winfield, on Humboldt, was entered by some twelve or fourteen men, and "cleaned out." A small portion of household furniture was de stroyed, and two horses ran off. It is said the part' were soldiers from Fort Riley. Winfield has always been a notorious, out-spoken seces sionist, for which reason we have no sympathy to express. Thus far, a man who has been true to his country has been saved such visitations when a bold, out-spoken loyalist is served in this way, then we'll howl, and not till then. We understand Mr. Winfield has received notice to quit the country within ten da3's. He has re covered his horses. A Reliable CcnREscr. We are pleased to see that our shin-plaster dealers are sparing no pains or expense to relieve the wants of the community in relation to small change. We have this week to notice that the currency of our friend, Lewis Kurtz, of Manhattan, has been made legitimate, and its circulation accordingly extended. Mr. Kurtz has tiken out a banker's license under the Internal Revenue law, and made arrangements for the redemption of his bills at Leavenworth. Our ettlers, who do business at Leavenworth, will hus be relieved-of the inconvenience arising from the non-circulation of these notes at a dis-.,tnce- We now have two houses in Western Kansas issuing shinplasters under authority, which are enough to supply the demand. Set tlers can therefore take the bills of Kurtz, of Manhattan, and Streeter &. Strickler, of Junction, as a reliable currency. m m m m Our Salt Rtgioss. Captain Stewart, Com mandant of Fort Riley, has lately been up the Republican. He writes as follows to the Con servative as his observations in the salt region. He says the half has not been told," and con tinues: "My duty as commander of troops led me re cently about seventy five miles up the Republican j T , nsas "ver. where mv attention was called to-a-salt marsh, where some few men were producing a very good article of salt, and that in abundance, though with verv inferior apparatus. The ground for a great extent was literally white with salt, though it cannot be gathered without considerable dirt, but the process adopted is very simple and easy. It is scraped together, dirt and all. The salt is then dissolved in water and the dirt allowed to settle at the bottom, when the water is poured off and boiled down. " While resting my command a few hours, Ve tried the experiment of boiling in a common soldier's camp kettle, and I herewith send yon a sample of the salt thus produced, which I think is very goou, considering uie kkiuc uiq oeen used a long time for boiling coffee, and other things. The only drawback to the work is the proximity of the'Pawnee Indians, whose hand is against any man's. But we hope to be able -.ooa to remove this impediment, when afield will be open for the accumulation of vast for tunes, and a great saving to the State." The editor of the Conservative says the salt tent them bv the Captain is of an excellent quality. ELECTION NOTICE !
