Mr. J. L. Armstrong, one of West Bolton’s wide awake and prosperous farmers, made us a pleasant call one day last week.
Arkansas City Republican, April 17, 1886.
A Card to Farmers. Reports are in circulation to the effect that I was refused credit for a wagon by Geo. E. Hasie & Co., because I was a farmer. I wish in this to correct the injustice that is done these gentlemen by such an erroneous statement. The facts are as follows: I offered to buy a wagon from them, giving my note for six months, but being a stranger to them, they asked me to come back in half an hour. In the meantime I purchased elsewhere. Mr. Hasie saw me soon after on the street and said I could have the wagon on terms I proposed, and on my replying that I had bought, he said very pleasantly, “All right.” I bear no ill-will toward these gentlemen or their business, as doing what they did, they only acted as good businessmen should do, as I was a stranger to them. J. L. ARMSTRONG.
Arkansas City Republican, April 17, 1886.
BIRTH. Born to J. L. Armstrong and wife, Tuesday morning, a nine pound girl.
Arkansas City Republican, Saturday, May 22, 1886. From Friday’s Daily.
Yesterday there met upon the streets of Arkansas City, six persons, each of whom were born and raised until maturity in Armstrong County, Pennsylvania, and then all removed to this vicinity except one. The group was composed of J. L. Armstrong, J. S. Craft, J. B. Guyer, D. P. Marshall, A. G. Keller, and C. W. Ellenbarger, who is visiting his friends here. Some lively and interesting talk was indulged in by the crowd. It is seldom so many persons meet upon a street so far away from their nativity.
