Marshal Leslie brought into our office

stalks of corn, the tsltest of which
measured fifteen feet. This growth was
made after the 25th of May, and had it
not been for the dry weather the field of

several fields which are estimated at
from 40 to 75 bushels to the acre. A

The time of year has come, earlier
this year than usual on account of the
drougnt, when the destruction of fences,
stacks of grain and hay and farm build
ings by fire is daily reported. It i
time for the greatest caution. Pipes,
matches and rubbish fires should be
caret ully guarded. It is the part of wis
dom to protect stacks and out-buildiogs
by plowing a few furrows around them,
so that if fire starts from any cause, the
progress may be checked before destruc
tion results. A few hours' work may
save the products of a whole season's
labor. Let the work be done at once.

Christian Chnrfrh, Meeting;.
A church meeting of the congregation
of the Christian church was held last
week to transact business which in
cluded the selecting of a pastor for the
coming year. Upon taking a vote the
present pastor, R. L. Lotz, was unani
mously chosen to continue here another
year. The condition of the church was
found to be prosperous, and the congre
gation Is growing in size and import
ance. The public at large will be pleased to
hear that Mr. Lotz has been continued
another year. Since bis arrival here on
August 26, 1880, be has done very satis
factory work ia his calling, and has
made many friends by the faithful per
formance of his duties as a minister and
as a citizen.
A Very serious Aeeldeat.
While a young man named David
Davis, in the employ of Col. Whitley,
was riding through town Thursday
on horseback with a wash-boiler in one
hand, his horse began prancing when
near I. D. Fox & Co's., and threw the
young man off. He fell in such a posi
tion as to cause a compound fracture
of the ankle, we believe, and upon
taking him to the residence of
Mrs. Connor, on Merchants street, it was
found by the attending physicians that
amputation of the limb would be neces
sary, and that operation was to have
been performed this afternoon. Mr.
Davis was unmarried. He was a brother
of the Davis who was klllod by the
falling of a derrick at Cottonwood Falls
some time ago.

Institute, in case sufficient encourage
ment is offered by our citizens. He

couragement shown, and ' that he

L. H.
Mote, of Travel.
Last Friday I boarded Lewis' train,
Missouri Pacific, and rode all the way
to Americus. There I boarded a buggy,
drawn by two mules, and set sail for
Four Mile creek. Rev. J. VanVoris
was both engineer and fireman on the
mule train. We made twenty miles in
five hours, not very easy. The sun shone
with August fury upon us, and tho wind
whirled the dust right into our faces.
On our way we crossed Wright, Rock
and Big John creeks; the Neosho near
the mouth of Four Mile creek, then
drove up Four Mile to a point four miles
south of Council Grove. We also drove
by the city of Dunlap.
Four Mile heads up in the hills of
Morris county, runs almost directly east,
and empties into the Neosho about five
miles below Council Grove. The bot
toms are narrow and fertile. There is a
good deal of second bottom land on the
north side of the creek. High, rocky
hills press up closely to the creek on
the south side. The creek is sup
ported by springs and affords a good
supply of stock water. The herd law
prevails, the crops all grow outdoors
and the people live on the commons. I
think the people are about ready to
fence. Wheat was about half a crop;
early planted eorn ditto; late planting, a
failure. I found some old friends here,
J. C. Pickett and Wm. Johnson, and
they are readers of Tbb News.

terests of the Topeka, Iola & Memphis
railroad last week. It this road ia com
pleted it will be a great benefit not only
to this part of Kansas but also to the
capital, as it will give a direct route to
Topeka, instead of the round-about way
by Ottawa and Lawrence. No doubt
much trade will be transferred from
Kansas City to Topeka. Ia case tins
road is built, the large machine shops
here, for many years unoccupied, might
again be put to use.
The track of the A-, T. & S. F. road,
which was washed away for a considers,
ble distance between Alburquerque and
Deming has been repaired and trains
will now run regularly. For four days
it was necessary to transport passengers
in carriages over Glorietta mountain, a
distance of twenty miles, which was
done at a great expense to the company,
who also provided meals, and, where
necessary, sleeping apartments. The
passengers experienced . some incon
venience, of course, but in speaking of
the incident, said they enjoyed the
change from the cars, and the pleasant
Eureka Herald : It is reported that
an engineer corps has been ordered to
Howard to run a line from that place to
the south line of the state for the im
mediate extension of - the Kansas City,
Emporia & Southern road. The matter
is not fully ready at present, we believe,
owing to the necessity of making repairs
and finishing up work at several points
on the main line. But it is said that as
soon as the men and material can be
spared from these it is the intention of
the company to extend the line as above.
We hope the work will be speedily ac
complished, and that the business and
length of the road will justify the run
ning of a regular passenger train daily,
instead of the mixed train we now have,
A correspondent of the New York
Tribune, writing of dishonesty in Mexi
co, says : "In regard to stealing, this I
know, that nothing along the line
of the. great 'Mexican' railroad from
Vera Cruz to the city of Mexico is left
outside after dark; nothing that the
strength of two men can lift Even the
car couplings are taken inside the station
and locked up. This road once intro
duced air breaks on their cars, but the
workmen punched holes in the pipes
and stole the tubing, so they were taken
off. On the 'National' road, and doubt
less on all others, also, they stole the
borts that fastened the rails to the ties
until they were finally riveted on. One
of a gang of workmen undertook to
steal the cap off a cartridge of dynamite,
and the result was that he and several
others went to their reward."

Major Anderson promises the finest
display the Flambeau Club ever made.
Generals Sheridan and Pope are rus
ticating in Colorado, and will undoubt
edly be present at tho reunion. Other
notable army officers have also been in
vited. The fireworks to be used during the
sham battle, were shipped from Chicago,
yesterday. The list embraces 200 dozen
eight ball colored Roman candles, 10
dozen half pound colored rockets, 2,000
No. 5 cannon fire crackers, 50 four inch
shells, and 50 maroons and the mortars
from which to fire them.
The organization of the members of
the corps that marched with Sherman to
the sea, was proposed to Capt Geo. R.
Peck, and the idea struck him so favor
ably that he at once took steps to see it
carried into effect As a result, all
members of Sherman's army who
marched to the sea, arc requested to re
port to Capt. A. M. Fuller as soon as
possible in order that all may be en
rolled, and the details of the proposed
march be completed. The plan, so far
as developed, is that the Shenoen men
shall march together in the grand march
to the fair grounds, on the 15th, singing
"Marching Through Georgia" and other
songs. This, like many other happily
conceived projects, will add greatly to
the interesting features of the reunion.
In answer to the strictures of the daily-
press charging the management of the
Stat Fair with offering attractions
which they knew would not be on hands,
the Topeka papers claim that as to Grant
there is at least a possibility of his being
there and that when they promised
Maud S. and St Jclien the managers
had reason to believe that they might be
procured. It is, however, unfortunate
that in the face of the lying promises
made by the Bismarck fair last year the
managers of the State Fair this year
should have promised so many things
which they will not be able to show up.
There will be a series of contests at
base ball during the State Fair between
the Westerns, of Topeka, and a profes
sional club of the west

the Machine.
Office or Plankinton & Ahmocb,
Kansas City. Ma. March 6, 1880. t
Gentlemen: We would say that we have been trying for nearly ten years
to get a sewing machine that would sew satisfactorily the heavy muslin bags for
hams. Have tried a number of machines, but until we tried the Royal St. John
we have never been able to get a machine that would make a long elastic stitch
without drawine or nuckerme the cloth. Your machine does the work perfectly.
on account of the firm, round, elastic stitch peculiar to the St, John ; and by its
rapid motion and light running we are able to make on one machine about 1,500
sacks per day with ease to the operator. This we could not do on any other ma
chine, although we tried them thoroughly. We also regard it as the simplest, most
durable and lightest running machine we have ever tried. We have put it to the
severest test and freely recommend it.
Plankinton & Armour, per W. P. Alleutt, Supt.
What they say after
would be equal to 3 hours
dinarv family use. No
lly machine.
Messrs. Trcmbclu, Reynolds &
inquiry as to how we still like the
bought of you, would say that alter using tnem almost constantly tor some eigntcco
months, and makins on an a vera so of over half a million sacks on each machine,
or at the rats of 1,500 to 1,800 on each machine per day, we like them as well as
when we first bought them. Cannot see any precepuble wear, and no Sewing Ma
chine that we have ever seen would have done the work as satisfactory and with
as little trouble and expense to us, not having cost one cent tor repairing.
