A SULKY PLOW FACTORY.
The Formau llrothers, of Nashville, 111.,
wrote Gov. Glenn, of this city, that a com
pany Is being organized for the purpose of
manufacturing sulky and gang plows, and
that the company have their eyes on Wich
ita. These Implements have taken pre
miums at State Iain over all competition.
There Is no town in the west so favorably
located as Wichita lor this manufactory.
One plow concern alone baa had fourteen
agents making Uielr headquarter! at Wich
ita, and scouring the surrounding counties.
There are more agricultural Implement
sold in Wichita than in any other two
cities In the State, simply because it It the
center of the widest, blggtst and best ag
ricultural district west of the Mississippi
river. Another letter from the same gen
tleman says that a representative of the
company will be In Wichita within thirty
days. We will at least guarantee one
thing, and that Is the company cannot find
another town of Hi size in the United
States which sells as many agricultuaal Im
plement as Wichita. There is no other
section eighty miles square of rich, loose
oil without a stone, stub or stump, every
foot of which can be farmed by machinery,
and ucarly one-half of which is valley.
DIED IN THE COUNTY HOSPITAL.
Another of the old residents of Sedgwick
county has gone to try the realities of the
unseen, one who formerly held a county
office and who has probably hardly been
missed as yet. From a marked copy of the
Gunnison (Col ) Drmocrat, we clip the fol

to have a sister living at Atchison, Kansas.
He has been In the County Hospital at in

Some one remarks that however disas
trous floods of rain in Kansas may seem at
the time, yet at the end of all such seasons
it is noticeable that the farmers can't find
teams or time enough to get their abundant
harvests into market. There is a good
deal of truth In the observation. The pres
ent season has been an unusual one in
mauy particulars, and noted ror extremes.
For four weeks past the rain fall has been
almost plicnouilual. No doubt many fields
of grain will be lost, especially will corn in
flat fields suffer, but If nothing happens the
aggregate will be big. Wheat still remains
green, and when harvest will come no one
seems to know. Potatoes and other vege
tables arc simply immense.

the State Normal School at Emporia, was
awarded one of the prizes In the annual
contest in debate. The question was : re
solved, that the government should assume
the carrying trade. Mr. Phillips took the
negative side. He held, says the IltpaW
can, that to private enterprise we owe the
efficiency of our railroad system, and that
the increased patronage of power would be
detrimental to financial and civil interests.
The speaker also favored the present rail
road law of Kansas, but would not have the
government assume entire control.

A your readers know, I went to Sarato

a host of.others. The assembly lastea inir
teen day, including two Sundays, end in
the day time the sessions were mainly de
voted to reports and business. In the even
ing there were popular meetings on various
subjects. Many delegates were here with
tbelr wives and families, so that the num

the general assembly was really 1,500 peo

the same time, drawlngasmanymore stran

Saratoga i emphatically a place of resort.
One would imagine rrom the number or
"boarding" signs seen on the houses, that
Saratoga was one vast city, or village, as
they call It, or boarding-houses. The place
contains about 10,000 Inhabitants, and In
the height or the season accommodates 20,-
000 guests. There arc mauy large anu cosi
ly hotels,(not open yet) the largest oi wuicu,
the Grand Union and the United States, are
capable of entertaining 1,300 people each,
with rooms ranging rrom $1" to ?M0 per
week, board extra.
or course, the great attraction here Is the
springs, without which there would be no
Saratoga. These number about thirty, each
containing some peculiar medicinal quality.
The one mot Irequcnted by the commis
sioners was the Hawthorn, situated on
Spring street, near Hroadway, and It was
rather strange to a person from the proui
bition(t) State of Kansas to sec dignified,
gray-beaded, ministerial-looking men, with
high bats and white neckties, rushlngalong
the streets, before breakfastwlth brown
bottles, jugs, palls and pitchers, to get their
morning tonic; to hear sedate and solemn
women accost each other with the common
western query, "Shall we have a drink J"
to see even small, well-dressed children,
carrying bottles and Jugs home to parents,
all anxious for a glass. But during our
stay there, both Mrs. L. and myself so far
overcame our Kausas education that we
could take our morning dram with the best
Among the pleasant resorts around Sara
toga that we visited Is Woodlawn, a tract
or land nearly adjoining Saratoga, compris
ing 500 acres, bought a Tew j ears ago by
Mrs. A. T. Stewart, and under the super
vision or Judge Hilton and hcrseir, and by
the expenditure of $3,000,000, has become
one of the plcasantest parks In the land.
It Is most beautirully laid eut In lawns,
groves, and some natural thickets and
swamps, with more than six miles or drives,
with statues, cottages and mansion in seem
ing confusion yet on a beautiful plan, so
that in a very short drive one passes irom
the lawn, as beautiiul as can be made, Into
a thicket and swamp so dense that was It
uot lor the wide and smooth carriage way
would seem a place never visited by man.
This beautiful place Is thrown open to the
public for driving. Carriages and tally-ho
coaches being freely admitted, but omni
buses and picnic parties not allowed to en
ter. Another place vvc visited IsMuMcGrcgor,
twelve miles distant, to which place a nar
row gauge railroad has been built, and for
grades, curves and rocks, it throws the

the summit a most magnificent view can be

Another resort Is Saratoga Lake, a beau
tirul sheet of water nine miles long, on
which is a small steamer for excursion par
tics, and sail and row boats- innumerable.
Geyser and other spoutlug springs, about
three miles out, are also very attractive
places. In fact, the assemblymen wero so
well pleased with the place and their treat,
ment here that they decided to hdld the as
sembly of 1881 here also.
From Saratoga we came to Massachusetts
and are now visiting our old home and
friends among the hills of Berkshire. We
cannot but feel that the hills are steepcr.thc
rocks more numerous and larger, and the
fields smaller, than wheu we called this
home. But this grand, sturdy old New
Englaud shows unmistaken signs of decay.
The great, enterprising, never-satisfied
West has drawn beavlfy on the young and
ambitlonsmcn or this region. Large houses
going to decay, farms once rich aud valua
ble arc abandoned, and cellar-holes and
ruins greet one on every hand. Even the

Is abandoned and Is growing up to bushes

on some future time ; knowing that it will

Uses, makin;r friends who will welcome its
return. The excellence or thl exhibition
Is decided by the press of other cities to be
the best that ever traveled. The following
is copied from a late exchange :
"As predicted by many, our city wa fill
ed with people from the surrounding coun.
try yesterday, to witness the grand street
parade, also to visit the entertainments
given by S. II. Barrett & Co.' circu com
pany. Their fame as a first-class "show''
had long preceded tbem. The arenlc per
formances were far above those usually
seen, while the various icais oi norseman
ship have never been equalled In this city.
The menagerie was very large, containing
n-any rare cnlmals. In fact the Barrett
how came fully up to public anticipation,
and although much was promised in their
bills and advertisement we confess with
pleasure that no act or features were lack
ing In their exhibition every one was
pleased and delighted, and the universal
verdict ot the people is that it was the
very best show ever In Albany.
The immense canvas was filled at both
performances, although the weather was
very Inclement, raining very bard at times.
Noticeable among the audience were State,
municipal and county officials, from the
cblef executive down. Some estimate the
attendance 10 have been at least 10,000."

which make the good wile, and wish to
congratulate blm ou obtaining so fair a
bride. May they-IIrc such a life of peace
and harmony a to be an example of good

I must not omit mentioning that on

his many friends to call at bis home. At
about 0 o'clock on that evening we had all
