Hutchinson is a hard one to down when it comes to estimating one of her assemblages. Tile Capital says that nearly one hundred Boston capitalists have bought real estate near Topeka and they in tend to set to work without delay to make Topeka one of the great cities of the west.

It is entirely within the range of possibilities that many counties along the Arkansas river may raise fine crops of cotton . in Uie future. Two reports from Kinsley differ con siderably in estimating the crowd at memorial exercises last Monday. The first was to the effect that there were about 200 in attendance. The next report states that there were at 7,000. evidently the goou ope of Kinsley had not heard .om neigh hor ing towns when first estim...
