'Squire Uos, lhing on Ninuescah, lost a very valuabls cow list Thursday evening, bs Ing struck by lightning. Ills barn was also struck, and was burned down at tho same time. The third ward had two ties in electing dele gates to the County Convention. This time J. C. Millis and J. C. Itichcy, were the individ uals. Tho former pulled through with the longest straw. Ono dollar per minute is what it cost Sol. U. Kohn to como down from Newton on a loco motive when tho First National Bank closed its doors. Forty minutes was the time con sumed in the trip. Capt Davis, of tho livery linn ol Davis & Irwin, showed us an L'nglish two-penea piece the other day that was coinod in 1CTG, making itjust two hundred years old. It is a clumsy old coin, but very interesting and unique. Capt. J. U.

Dense clouds of the winged, horse-headed heathens lilted the air, several or which stopped to spend tho night, and lorgot to go tho next. day. Pink Fouts on Monday sold to Mr. Geo. A. GilTord 400 head or Merino sheep from his herd cast ol town. Mr. Giflord comes to this valley rrom Missouri fully satisfied that it Is I'ar superior as a sheep country to all others he lias seen. Success to him. As to the great calamity which beftll our city last week, (wo allude to the First Nation al Bank) we havo nothing in the way of relia ble data. The Institution is in the hands of United States officers, who inform us that it will take several days to arrive at any sound conclusion. The center span or tho El Paso bridge across the Arkansas river gave way tho other day, blocking tho mails and impeding trUvcl. It appears that the fouudation.or the upper-side center pier washed out and allowed the span to sway upon the upper sido. The span did not fall entirely down, but hangs a Tow feet above the water. The irrepressible Sam Wood, is out in a circular declaring his Intention to run for the Legislature. The circular sets forth, to some length, tho needs or the State which he pro poses to help supply. He is a llcpublican this year, which means that Chase county will give three hundred Itepublicau majority. For Wood certainly carries Chase county in his pocket. M. L. Sargent, General Freight Agent ol tho A. T. & S. F. Railroad, has given notice to -the different agents along the road, rrom To peka west as Tar as Kinsley and Wichita, that until October 15thc rate per car on stock hogs from Atchison -and Kansas City will bo twen ty dollars, being one-hair regular rates. Here is a special inducement, or a favorable oppor tunity, for farmers to ship stock hogs to this valley. It is much more profitable to turn corn into money, by feeding it to hogs, than to sell It for twenty or thirty cents per bushel.

By referring to the premium list, whleii is out in pamphlet form and can be had by askiug lor it at almost auy store in town, wo see that it commences October 3d and con tinuing lour days. They offer a good list or premiums. The rairs heretofore have not been as attractive, profitable and interesting as they mlcut have been, simply from tho fact that the people from the country, as a general thing, did not take any intcrestin them. The society is lending every effort towards maKing it a succsss, aud if each farmer, mechanic and artisan will contribute something and lend their presence during the exhibition, or part of the time, it will be a success. Such a ono as will be a credit to them-elvc3 and JJio county. On Tuesday morning a special train arrived hero in charge ol Mr. C. B. Schmidt, foreign agent of tho A., T. & S. F. U.K. He was- ac companied by the lollowing distinguished journalists, who express themselves highly gratified with the appearance of our city and connty: ' , Chovalior Ernst de Hesse Wartcgg. special correspondent llluttrirte ZUtung, Leipzig, JIYe ner imi7Mo, Vienna, aud Loyd Pcsth; Leo von Elliot, special artist llluttrirte Zeituvg, Leipzig aud Lt Hondo llluttre, BrusscN ; S.

There have been three or four lousy Kaw IndianslBaling around town for the last week. They havo gotten themselves up a U Sitting Bull. It is rather amusing to sc a lot of our citizens congregate around them aud engage in com ersatiou with them, and to hear Mr. Indian say "Mc no understand," when the facts arc, they can speak English bettor than thoy can their native language. The fact is, that a majority of the young men now left In tho tribe can read. Col. Jno. W. Forney, ol Belle Plaine, Sum ner county, wa up the other day. Ue and his brother, whose extensive farming opera tions we have noticed heretofore, arc sowing four hundred acres of wheat this fait, one fourth of which is alrc.idy In. They hare sown, this fall, also City acres or barloy and fifty acros or rye. making a total of five hun dred acres or small grain. Tho last day or the summer or 187fi was typical of the season, the thermometer stand ing 103 degrees in the shade, on Main street, at 2 o'clock. The hottest summer in sixty years was closed up with a storm in tho even ing, and next morning, September 1st, the weather was cool and bracing. Judging from tlio winds, the melancholy days aud an early autumn arc close at hand. A note was sent rrom this oillce recently to Marsh Murdock, lor a cut of the ;State Uui-ver-!ty,whicli had appeared in his paper. The follow ins; reply has been received : W. la Will send don a cut uiusey. Mmmmmk. Junction City Vnion. Now everybody, except the editor or the Enfo;i,know6 what our answer was which' will not only notily President Marvin, but may ruin the University. How thoughtless In a profoiscd rriend to thus give the fttll text or a private correspondence. Robert Baird, who a few months since built a stonswaro manufactory at Burhngame, which has proved an entire success, was in our town with a car load uflils ware this, week, Introducing It to our merchants. The quarry or material from which It is manufactured was discovoredbut two or three years ago. A sample or the ware is on exhibition at Phila delphia. No doubt it will grow into an im portant industry for that portion or tin; State. The Cowley County Telegram, W. W. Alli son proprietor, has absorbed the Cowley County Democrat. Tho last number of the Teleram says : "This consolidation places the Telegram far in the Iad or all country newspais In South western Kansas, except tho Wichita Eagle, as to circulation, etc. Its incroascd value as an advertising medium will certainly be re cognized by all business men and they will be governed accordingly." Grant Graigo received, a few days aso. a fine library, consisting in part of all the best works on agriculture, horticulture, pomology etc. It is certainly a very wise step for granges to procure good libraries. There is no reason why every grange in tho county should not, in a short time, provide them selves in like manner. Wirt Walton signed himseir "Snovr Bank" at tho Topeka MaJt office a few days since. "Snow Hank I" Ye gods 1 If ho is a "snow bank," then in the name of all that is wonder ful, what docs a coal bank resemble? Cowley County Telegram. William, you arc prejudiced. Wo know a girl that thinks Wirt is a regular chunk of lily white. Sixty fat hogs, awaiting shipment at the the yards, died In ono day last week from heat. Who they belonged to was not reported. Wc linnr.l finnflinr vtMnmnnt in tlin f(Ti.f Hint many hogs were dying hereabouts rrom ' cholera. The editor or the Eagle has becu confined to his home the rnostot the time for the past week, with a cold aud bllious'attack, and tho business managcrabsont until yesterday. Any shortcomings will be overlooked. A man who lias had experience with tho grasshopcrs in the West Indies writos to tho Council Bluff Globe that a pound ol sulphur burned on charcoal, in the middle of modcrato sized field, will effectually protect the crop rrom tho ravages or tho pest. The farmers of Nebraska and Colorado, who aro suffering so sovcly from grasshoppers, can well afford to give this simple reclpt a trial. Messrs. Bussell and Furlong lnvo replaced their horse-power with a steam engine, and are prepared for elevator business! These gontlcmen havo come in our midst to remain, having removed horo with their families. Wc lcel confident thoy will never have occasion to regret tho steps taken by them. Sitting Bull thinks his tribo more numerous than the entire whito race. Had he seen the number of palo laces in our city when the First National closed, liU views would havo experienced a radical change. The statement in the Commonwealth, and also a street rumor, to tho effect that the offi cers of the National Bank had to bo guarded at their respective residences to protect them from violence by the maddened populace, is without any fouudatlon whatever, as nothing of the kind was nor has been anticipated.

Over ono million and a half in use. The moat durable and lightest running machine iu the world. As an evidence, the Singer, Rem ington and Whcoler & Wilson were iuvented about the same time and put into market, and at tho present t'av the Singer has over one million and a half in use, tho Wheeler & Wil son liai about five hundred thousand and tho Remington has tho Email, m-ignificant num ber ortivo thousand nine hundred and lifty throe, which can be seen on tho urpcr end of the needle burr, which makes the Remington the last choice ot the people, and thoy would not havo sold one quarter that number had they not sold them under a fictitious name. For many years the Remington machino com pany have attempted to force their machines on the market as tho Remington, but failed, which reminds mo of several occurrences. Fifteen years ago the third day of July, I was in Bloomington Illinois, stopping with a friend by tho name or D. II. 'Horner. There were two agents at the place, tho Wheeler & Wilson and the Remington. Tho Wheeler & Wilson agent had confidence enough in his machino to sell It on its own reputation, but the Remington agent's confidence failed him, and he attempted to sell it as the improved Weed. Some five years ago, while I was sell ing the Howe, I happened to meet an agent that wa3 selling tha Remington. Ho had as little confidence in his machine a3 the first one 1 met, and ho attempted to sell it as tho improved Howe, aud 1 have been creditably iulirmed that the Remington agents arc sell ing their machines here as the improved Singer, which is false. Thero is no improved Singer except tlio original one, which cannot be sold in tho Southwest except by or through me. Those who wish to buy the Remington are welcome to, but I deem it my duty to inform the good people of tho South west, through the columns oryour paper, so they will not be imposed upon in buying ma chines. A machino that cannot be sold on its own reputation should not be sold on tho merits or a machine that has been long tried and proved, without doubt, tho best in the world. The impositions offered are of the deepest dye. W. .Mason, General Agent for the Southwest.
