Arkansas City Traveler, December 14, 1881.
We had the pleasure of meeting, last Monday, Mr. G. M. Baugh, of Reynolds, Rock Island Co., Illinois, who is visiting our city with a view to locate. Should he decide upon that step, he will immediately open up a Stove and Tin ware establishment, in which business he has been engaged some ten or twelve years. A good opening exists in this line of business, and we hope Mr. Baugh may conclude to remain with us for the future.
Arkansas City Traveler, December 21, 1881.
Mr. Baugh has concluded to open a tin and stove establish­ment, but as yet he has not made definite arrangements for a building. He does not expect to open up, however, for several weeks yet as his business in the East requires settling first.

C. R. Sipes and Baugh & Son are employed in this line of business.
C. R. Sipes is one of the two merchants who first commenced business in Arkansas City. That was thirteen years ago, and he occupied his present site in a small room 16 x 20, in which he kept stoves, tinware, hardware, and agricultural implements. He now is situated differently, having erected within the past year a magnificent stone storeroom, brick front, two stories, 25 x 85 feet, in which he keeps the finest stock of stoves and tinware in the county. The means invested in tinware alone more than exceeds the funds invested in all four of his branches thirteen years ago. Even this structure is inadequate to meet his wants, and he is compelled to furnish himself with a warehouse in the rear of 40 feet in depth. He has gained success by earning it. His storeroom was built at a cost of $4,200, and is an elegant structure. He is a man upon whom you can rely thoroughly.
Baugh & Son have recently started in business. They do excellent work, and sustain the name of first-class workmen. All work entrusted to their care will be executed promptly.
