E. D. Eddy Family

                                                  EDDY, THE DRUGGIST.

Notes made by RKW years ago...
E. D. Eddy was one of the pioneers of Arkansas City.
He came to Arkansas City in 1870. His drug store was the first store south of Sipes’ Hardware store (now Bryant’s Hardware Store). He ran this store until he retired in 1900 and moved to Chicago.
While living in Arkansas City, he met and married the sister of J. H. Sherburne. [See file on Sherburne.] They had two sons and two daughters, all born in Arkansas City. One daughter was born July 17, 1877.
After retirement as a druggist, the Eddy family moved to Chicago. Mrs. Eddy died and was brought back to Arkansas City for burial in Riverview Cemetery. When Mr. Eddy died March 8, 1925, he also was returned to Arkansas City for burial beside his wife.

Four tons of goods—the first installment of Keith & Eddy’s drug store—arrived today, meeting with a hearty welcome.
Emporia News, February 3, 1871.
Arkansas City has one of the finest locations for a town to be found any place in Kansas, but as this has been written of so often and so extensively, we will pass it for the present. The city contains about eighty houses, some of them are very good buildings.
Keith & Eddy, a Leavenworth firm, are selling drugs.

                                            [Notice Dated November 4, 1871.]

B. Snow’s office, Eldorado; Post-office, Augusta; Douglass House, Douglass; Alexander & Saffold’s office, Winfield; Keith & Eddy’s Drug Store, Arkansas City.

                                                [From the Arkansas Traveler.]

Keith & Eddy have some specimens of brown umber and ochre, which is found in large quantities near this place. Parties are investigating the mine, and will soon make arrange­ments for the manufacture of mineral paint. This discovery will be of great benefit to Arkansas City by inducing manufactures.
Walnut Valley Times, February 16, 1872.
Keith & Eddy, merchants in Arkansas City, were arrested a short time ago and brought before the United States Commissioner at that place upon a charge of passing counterfeit money. It appears that they bought a draft from a man by the name of Hoyt, who afterwards paid $150 to another party. Somehow two of the bills of the denomination of $20 each found their way into the U. S. Land Office at Augusta, and resulted in the arrest of Keith & Eddy as above stated. One of the parties was examined upon the charge and discharged, and the case dismissed. They are both highly respectable citizens, and no one at Arkansas City believes either of them to be guilty of knowingly passing coun­terfeit money. But notwith­standing this, Mr. Brig. Gen. U. S. Deputy Marshal Barnes re-arrested them, and took them to Wichita for trial, where they were again discharged for want of evidence against them.
This man Barnes needs taking down about two button holes. He is cutting most too wide a swath for a man of his caliber. It has been but a short time since this same official came to Eldorado on a splurge. He arrested two boys traveling through the country on a charge of horse stealing; took and locked up their horses, and turned the boys loose. He swaggered around town during the next day, and seeing the boys were not disposed to run away and leave their horses, he released them. When asked for his authority for arresting them, he was unable to show any; when the boys asked for legal advice, he abused and threatened the attorney, who being unarmed, had to take it. It seems that the Government ought to be able to find efficient officers who are, at the same time, gentlemen.

                                                     Item from the Traveler.
Yesterday was the last of E. D. Eddy’s soda fountain for the present season. The supply of ice is exhausted and none to be obtained nearer than Winfield. The same cause will also compel Hermann to close up his ice cream saloon. It is strange that sufficient ice is not stored up to last the summer through, when the cost of putting up compared with the profits made is so small.
The Commonwealth, March 7, 1875.
Mr. Eddy, of Arkansas City, has coughed up an oyster shell which has stuck in his throat for five years. He will never take his oysters on the half shell again.
Winfield Courier, September 16, 1875.
                                   TO THE VOTERS OF COWLEY COUNTY.

This is to certify that we, whose names are hereto sub­scribed, do most heartily recommend for our next County Treasurer, FRANK GALLOTTI, who has for the last year and a half faithfully and satisfactorily performed the duties of said office while acting in the capacity of Deputy; and we do hereby further certify that his character during that time has been such as to fully entitle him to the recommendation. The records of said office kept by him, bears ample testimony of his capability and efficiency. We consider him well qualified to fulfill the duties of said office, and therefore cheerfully recommend him to the voters of Cowley County as well worth of their cordial support, and who, if elected, will most faithfully and systematically perform the duties of said office.
                                   E. D. Eddy was one of those who signed petition.
Winfield Courier, October 7, 1875.
E. D. Eddy, the popular druggist of Arkansas City, passed through town Tuesday en route for the east. The genial Will Mowry is the chief “disher up” of quinine during his absence.

As the railroad time in Wichita is being changed so often, and cannot be depended upon, arrangements are being made to have the standard time obtained from there every few days, and kept at E. D. Eddy’s, Houghton & McLaughlin’s, and elsewhere, in order that all living in the City may have the same time together, instead of so many different ones, as at present.

So, Joseph Troutman, of South Haven, that is you! We vouched for your grub at the City, and quinine at Eddy’s, under promise you’d be in next week. Next week hasn’t come yet, and it was a month ago. If we could kick you by mail, we’d feel like trying it.

BIRTHDAY PRESENT. A number of the friends of Miss Georgie Sherburne gathered at her place of residence last Wednesday evening for the purpose of presenting tokens of appreciation, when to the surprise and gratification of all, a fine, seven and one-fourth octave piano, worth $700 (A. M. McPhall, Boston, Mass., manufacturer) was brought in as a present from her brother, Joseph. The surprise was a complete success, and the presents gorgeous.
Arkansas City Traveler, March 1, 1876.
By mere chance we happened to discover that a “Grand Centennial Panorama” was to be given this evening, by some parties from Grouse Creek, to which the public are all invited. This “splendid exhibition of art” has been given before the crowded halls of Dexter and Silverdale, and pronounced to be equal to any magic lantern performance that has ever come up the Grouse. As we have not enjoyed a magic lantern show for nearly two months (since Eddy put his away), we have no doubt a multi­tude of our citizens will assemble to witness it. “Doors open at 6½ o’clock, Wednesday, the 1st of March.”
Arkansas City Traveler, March 15, 1876.

CANDIES. As a reminder that E. D. Eddy had received his new lot of choice and fancy candies, the office was tendered a half peck of them, and expressed themselves severally to the following toast: “May he ever live, and prosperity attend him.” The responses occupied more time than the devouring of the granulated saccharine matter.
Arkansas City Traveler, March 29, 1876.
The Fire Extinguishers are placed as follows: One at the Central Avenue Hotel, one at E. D. Eddy’s, and one at the Post Office. Houghton & McLaughlin have a private one belonging wholly to themselves.

The marriage ceremony of Mr. Kennedy and Miss Norton was performed by Rev. J. E. Platter, last Wednesday evening, at the residence of Mr. L. C. Norton, and was highly complimented by the competent judges who were in attendance. Mr. and Mrs. Haywood, Mr. and Mrs. Loomis, E. D. Eddy, Miss Sherburne, Mr. Kennedy’s brother, J. H. Sherburne, Mr. and Mrs. Newman, Mrs. Sherburne, and Mr. Burgess, constituted the party, with the parents and members of the family of the bride.
Arkansas City Traveler, July 12, 1876.
Animated by that spirit of independence which characterized our patriot sires of old, a small party of Arkansas City Fourth of July-ers turned their backs upon the great show at Winfield, and started for the Territory; where upon the broad prairies, by the sparkling waters of the Shilocco, we might have room to “spread” ourselves, and liberty to partake of the Legislature’s forbidden fruit for which we all had an “orful hankerin’.” Our objective point was the spring—everybody knows where that is. We left town at 8:30, with banners flying, and at 9:15 passed the State line and beyond the limits of the game law. And right here I would like to call the attention of the authorities to a system of lawlessness that exists along the border, which if persisted in will disgrace us as a community, and cause great annoyance to the Government. I allude to the disgraceful conduct of Polk Stevens et al., in cutting up the State line and using the pieces for well ropes, lariats, etc. After passing into the Territory, O. P. Houghton, E. D. Eddy, Kendall Smith, Henry Mowry, and others, armed with double barrel shot guns and dogs—I mean dogs and double barrel shot guns—started out to hunt for game, while the rest of the party went to look for the spring, which (everybody knowing exactly where it was) we found immediately. Here we corralled our wagons, and to the tops thereof stretched wagon covers, and soon had a comfortable tent commodious enough to cover our whole party of fifty. The next thing in order was to prepare the “wittles.” L. McLaughlin’s pony express came in on time bringing a game sack full of game, consisting of young quails, snipes, woodpeckers, and prairie chickens of all ages, from the newly bedged with parts of its late domicile hanging to them to the toothless old hen of “ye olden time.” Eddy, under the supervision of Mrs. Houghton and Mrs. L. McLaughlin, cooked the game in a very satisfactory manner, while Tyler McLaughlin, as chief cook of the coffee department, covered himself all over with glory and cinders. Kendall Smith and Jim Benedict roasted three pecks of wormy sweet corn, and Mrs.—candor compels me to say it—Mrs. Meigs ate it. Evidently the author of “Ten Acres Enough” had never seen Mrs. Meigs eat roasting ears. Other parties disposed of grub in the same proportion, but the undersigned sat between Jim Benedict and the “picter” man, and as a consequence, went home hungry, and “Oh! how dry I was.” After dinner we had a patriotic song by Mrs. Alexander and O. P. Houghton, and an eloquent address by E. D. Bowen, M. D. The toast, “The flag of our Union: long may it wave, from Kansas to Maine and Georgi(e)a,” was responded to by E. D. Eddy. Mrs. Alexander was the life and spirit of the party (she carried the spirit in a bottle). After our patriotism had effervesced, T. H. McLaughlin set up the lemonade, and we started for home. On the way Mrs. L. McLaughlin unfolded some blood curdling panther “tails” of the early days in the backwoods. Just as the Centennial sun sank to rest, we returned to our homes, with a feeling of pity for those people of limited means who could not afford to travel, but were compelled to put up with the skeetery and weedy woods of Winfield.

Arkansas City Traveler, July 19, 1876.

DR. HOUSTON and “his son John” are worse than Arabs. They took up their tents, packed off to Leavenworth, stayed two weeks—and all done so silently no one knew anything about it until the doctor waltzed up to Eddy’s drug store, last week, and told it.
Arkansas City Traveler, August 23, 1876.
RUNAWAY. Monday afternoon O. P. Houghton, E. D. Eddy, and Revs. Fleming and Croco, went out in search of what they might annihilate, and found a flock of chickens. Mr. Eddy fired, whereupon the horses took fright, jumped up and down, straddled the pole of the wagon, broke it off, and started to run. Eugene, thinking mother earth a more desirable stopping place than soaring in the air, landed safely. Rev. Croco endeavored to, and partially succeeded. Rev. Fleming, with his usual tenacity, held off until the vehicle crossed a rut, when he got out suddenly. O. P. Houghton held on until the team was checked, when he expressed himself gratified that he had not ended the career of one deacon and two ministers.

The number of prescriptions filled by Eddy’s Drug Store since the beginning of Arkansas City is _____. Dr. Kellogg issued the first prescription, being “Five Compound Cathartic pills, to be taken at one dose.” If we could just find out the man who took the pills, now, we could make it a matter of history for future generations.

The election of city officers took place last Monday, quietly and peaceably, with the following result. Mayor: Dr. Kellogg; Police Judge: Jas. Christian; Councilmen: James Benedict, H. P. Farrar, James I. Mitchell, H. Godehard, I. H. Bonsall. There was another ticket in the field, composed of Wm. Sleeth for Mayor, Judge Christian for Police Judge, and A. A. Newman, O. P. Houghton, E. D. Eddy, J. A. Loomis, and J. T. Shepard, for Councilmen; but as one was composed of, or was generally understood to be “license” men, the issue was made “license” and “anti-license,” and the vote stood 70 for the former and 41 for the latter. Both tickets were composed of the best men of the community.
Arkansas City Traveler, April 3, 1877.
In the race for Mayor last Monday, H. D. Kellogg received 72 votes, Major Sleeth 40, and Rev. Thompson 1. For Police Judge, James Christian received 112 votes, and Rev. David Thompson 1.

Arkansas City Traveler, May 23, 1877.

For the past ten days heavy rains have been falling through­out this section and the streams are gradually rising. On last Friday the Arkansas was noticed as being very full, and on Saturday the rise was very rapid, bringing with it drift wood and live trees. Some of the latter being cedar, supposed to have come from the mountains. This would go to prove that the rains had extended to the mountains, or the immense body of water caused by the melting of snow. Until Saturday night no apprehensions of the destruction of the bridge were entertained until large trees came floating down and the water began to flow around the approach. The Township Trustee then engaged a number of men with poles to push the floating logs under the bridge; but they came so thick and fast, and the night being very dark, it was deemed useless, and they abandoned the work at eleven o’clock at night. At three o’clock Sunday morning, Wyard Gooch and others went down, and found all but four spans of the bridge gone. They then sent back for rope and tied the remaining span on the north side to a post and a tree about half as thick as a man’s body. Not long after a very large tree with heavy branches came sweeping past, and striking the span, carried it away. After being swept from the piles on which it was built, it swung around to the bank, and the force of the current caused the post to break and left it swinging on the one rope tied to the tree. This soon began to crack, and in a few seconds, the tree was pulled out by the roots and the structure went with the current. Those who were on the river bank most of the time say that large pine branches and portions of other bridge timbers could be seen every few minutes, supposed to have belonged to the El Paso and Wichita bridges. The bottom lands on the Arkansas present a wonderful specta­cle. Whole fields of wheat and corn opposite Arkansas City are completely inundated, and the country around almost under water. Nothing is left between Carder’s house and the Arkansas River except the sand hills, and the only way to reach the bank of the river is by boat. We made an effort to cross to the ridge just opposite where Davis’ house stood, on horse back, and the horse was compelled to swim. Wm. Coombs, James Wilson, E. D. Eddy, and others, while making the attempt earlier in the day, mired their animals, and had to wade ashore. On the island we found a dog, and every few feet noticed rabbits, gophers, ground moles, or snakes that had gathered there for safety. The current of the river is fearful, and the waves roll two feet in height. From the overflow at this place, we should judge the city of Wichita to be flooded with water, and the country adjacent to the river in Arkansas City completely deluged. The losses from bridges alone will be considerable, to say nothing of the great destruction of grain fields. The bridge at this place originally cost $13,000, and the damage to it cannot be replaced short of $4,000 or $5,000. An effort will be made to rebuild that portion that has been carried away at once, or to have a ferry run until it is done.

The picnic in Bolton Township, July 4th, was well attended by an intelligent class of people. R. A. Houghton, Hermann Godehard, and E. D. Eddy had stands on the ground and dispensed the lemonade, ice cream, candy, etc. We might go into details, but as we have two communications on the subject, will let it pass.

EDDY’s Christmas goods have come in, and the children are flocking in to inspect them. Even the old men and aged ladies go, “just to see them with the child,” and we go to get the item. He has every variety of funny things: jumping jacks, squalling babies, tin horses, velocipedes, wagons, sleds, locomotives, besides some interesting and instructive books of poems, story books, pictures, and many things that would make a nice present to our true love, your better half, or the girl of the period.
Arkansas City Traveler, January 2, 1878.

The fancy table was well supplied with ornamental articles, which the fair ladies succeeded in selling to the bachelors and young men as particularly useful to persons situated as they were. The gentlemen in question had no other course than to hand over the cash and pocket the article, but just how an old woman hater was to be benefitted by paying fifty cents for an embryo apron made to pin around the neck, is a problem that remains unsolved. On this table was a veteran law book, 131 years old, con­tributed by Judge Christian for exhibition. Over the table hung a beautiful chromo, donated by Mr. E. D. Eddy, and to be given to the prettiest baby in the room. This question was decided by voting (ten cents for each and every vote, with the privilege of repeating ad infinitum), and resulted in favor of Claire, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. R. Mitchell. We understand the Society cleared about eighty dollars altogether, which will be applied to finishing their new building.

Deputy Sheriff Finch was in town last Saturday, and shortly after his arrival he and W. J. Gray arrested two young fellows who had driven down from Winfield but a few minutes previous, ostensibly on the charge of horse stealing; but the real cause was a threat to break the county jail. The parties arrested were E. C. White and T. Huffman, the former of whom was suspicioned of trying to effect the deliverance of his brother, Ike White, from jail. Huffman was arrested, taken to one side, and made to believe that the jig was up, and that it would go better with him if he owned up to the object of their trip to our town. Suppos­ing they were shadowed for horse stealing, he informed the officials of White’s intention to procure some acid by which the jail locks could be destroyed, whereupon White was immediate­ly arrested. All the proof against him in town was his asking for some aqua fortis at Eddy’s drug store, but both parties were securely tied to a wagon and taken to Winfield.

While believing Mr. Finch acted in good faith, we are disposed to regard the arrest as rather premature. Taking into consideration the time required for aqua fortis to corrode a lock, we cannot see that our jail was in any immediate danger, more especially as the officers were so thoroughly posted as to White’s intentions, and we question whether they had sufficient grounds for making an arrest unless they were satisfied that these boys were implicated with Ike White in horse stealing. “Fore-warned is fore-armed,” and a little careful watching probably would have resulted in absolute conviction, when the luckless White could have been put where he would do the most good. White is lately from Texas, is a reckless, worthless fellow, and one for whom we have no sympathy. It is only our desire to see such social lepers brought to justice that prompts this criticism. There is such a thing as being overzealous in a cause, which, of course, is far preferable to the charge of negligence. Of negligence, however, our present officers are never guilty.

Billy Arlington, the champion humorous lecturer in the country, will lecture at the schoolhouse in our city next Tuesday evening. This gentleman has been before the public for more than twenty-five years, first as a minstrel, but of late years as a lecturer, and has given such entire satisfaction that his name is a household word in Eastern circles. While in the Arlington, Cotton & Kemble troupe he built the Meyer’s opera house at Chicago, playing there until 1874. Mr. Arlington’s lecture is without exception the best thing of its kind before the public. In order to start a library for the school in our city, this lecture is given under the auspices of the literary society, and the proceeds will be devoted to purchasing books. Such a worthy object should not fail in drawing a large audience, and Mr. Sylvester promises to keep the ball rolling until we can boast of a good library. The Baptist church handles Arlington at Winfield, the proceeds to aid their society in building, and the library associations of Wichita and El Dorado take him in those cities. Reserved seat tickets are for sale at Eddy’s drug store; price fifty cents; regular admission thirty-five cents. For the sake of our school and library, let there be a good turn-out.

On Tuesday morning we went out to the grounds that have recently attracted considerable attention on account of the gold and silver formation said to exist there. This locality is about three miles northwest of town in a sandy region covered with a growth of black oaks. We publish in this number of the TRAVELER two assays of specimens taken from these grounds, and while we do not pretend to say whether the ore is rich enough to justify the expense of smelting, we know to a certainty that the supply is almost unlimited of both the black and red formation. If the mineral should justify the expense of smelting, it will soon revolutionize this part of the country and it is a gross fabrication to deny its existence.
OFFICE OF ST. JOSEPH LEAD MINES, San Francisco County, Missouri, Jan. 11, 1880.
Mr. Eddy: The two samples of sand stone you sent me each carried 18 ounces of silver to the ton. I say about 18 oz. because with the scales I used I could only determine that it was more than 15 oz. and less than 20 oz. I would have answered sooner but the package was delayed on the road and I did not receive it until two days ago. Yours, D. McK.

Just before going to press we received a call from Mr. Ed. Roland, of Winfield, who was accompanied by the renowned comedi­an, Mr. Burton. From them we learn that the Winfield Rifles, under the direction of Mr. Burton and wife, will present the king of comedies, “The Dutch Recruit,” at Winfield during next week, commencing Tuesday and closing Friday or Saturday night. They want to see an excursion train come up from this place well loaded with our citizens, promising us every courtesy wished for, and they will not be disappointed. Our people enjoyed the “Union Spy,” but this is a much better play, with a better cast of characters, than anything ever put on the boards in Cowley county. It has more true sentiment and richer fun than half a dozen “Union Spies.” Let’s all join together and go on Thursday night, June 3, 1880. We will give full particulars next week. A plat of Manning’s hall can be seen at Eddy’s drug store.
Arkansas City Traveler, June 2, 1880.

The “Dutch Recruit” will be given at Winfield in Manning’s Hall, tomorrow night. The play has been running this week, but tomorrow night has been set aside for the benefit of the theater going people of Arkansas City. Mr. Ingersoll will run a special train for the accommodation of those who desire to go, for $30. Let us get up at least thirty couples, and take in the best play ever in this county. Mr. Burton, under whose direction the “Winfield Rifles” are playing, is an actor of twenty-eight years’ standing, and is supported by his wife, a lady of talent and experience. The Winfield folks will meet us at the depot and extend every courtesy we could ask. They have reserved the best part of the hall for our citizens, a plat of which can be seen at Eddy’s drug store. The omnibus fare to and from the depot has also been reduced one-half. We feel confident that our people will feel fully satisfied with the entertainment, and would like to see a crowded train leave the depot tomorrow evening.

There was a call for the businessmen of the city and country to meet at McLaughlin’s Hall at 4 o’clock, April 13th, to take into consideration the building of a railroad from Arkansas City, Kansas, to Coffeyville, Kansas, and west as far as Caldwell, and farther, if desired. Meeting called to order by Dr. Chapel; T. H. McLaughlin appointed Chairman and Wm. Blakeney, Secretary. Chair called for remarks. James Hill being asked to state, in full, the object of the meeting, spoke in a clear and forcible manner of the great advantages that a railroad would do us, as a city and country, running along so near the Territory line, making a direct road from this city to St. Louis, thereby saving much time and expense in getting our stock and grain to a good market. Mr. Hill also stated that if we were not up and doing, other cities would take all the things of advantage to themselves, building up their cities and counties, and we would be left out in the cold. Rev. Fleming spoke on the question with much earnestness, advising that whatever was done be done at once. Many spoke very freely on the question, all taking a deep interest in doing something to help make our city a better city and our county a better county. After the project being understood, a committee, comprising James Hill and Dr. Chapel, was appointed to solicit bonds, along the line, from the cities and counties. Another committee was also appointed to solicit funds to meet the expense of surveying. Committee: James Huey, E. D. Eddy, N. T. Snyder, and Wm. Sleeth. Motion made to adjourn. WM. BLAKENEY, Secretary.

With this happy family came Mrs. Morse’s mother-in-law, a lady who has attained the rare old age of 87 years, and who is possessed of a life and vitality not often seen in women thirty years younger—attesting a marvelous constitution and perfect health. We trust the breezes of Southern Kansas may fan her aged cheeks even more lightly than have the rigorous winds of the Atlantic coast.

Mr. Eddy has used it for a long time in his own family, and is now satisfied that the article in question comes as near perfection as it is possible for mortal man to make it.

Barn Burned. Last Thursday afternoon our citizens were startled by the cry of “Fire!” and the dense column of smoke seen in the southeastern part of town convinced everybody that there was something in it. It proved to be the barn of Peter Pearson, our furniture man. His little boy, aged some five or six years, had raked together a lot of rubbish in the alley at the rear of the stable, and was having a “camp fire,” as he afterwards explained; but, unfortu­nately it got beyond his control, and almost before the lad knew it the fire had communicated itself to the stable. Inside the stable were some coffins, a fine hearse, some harness, and other articles of less value, all of which were complete destroyed, making a total loss of about $1,000. A very high wind was prevailing at the time, and for half an hour the chances seemed favorable for a general conflagration in that neighborhood, which however was prevented by the strenuous efforts of the crowd. A small stable belonging to Mr. Eddy was burned, and considerable fencing was either burned or destroyed, which is the extent of the damages. Mr. Pearson’s loss is complete, as he carried no insurance. He has ordered a new hearse, which will be here in a couple of weeks.

Master Hollenbeck crashed in through an open window of T. J. Sweeney’s grocery store Sunday afternoon and relieved the money drawer of about five dollars in cash. Shortly afterward the theft was discovered, and Billy Gray set out to catch the culprit. He caught young Hollenbeck and searched him and found $4.75 on his person, the remainder he had made away with. He tried to buy beer at Eddy’s drug store, but was refused. Hollenbeck is just entering his teens, and unless he absorbs some of the reformation talked about to the Democratic platform, suddenly, he is sure to come to some bad end. He was not prosecuted.

The Ladies have not held a regular festival for one year and have cheerfully assisted others in their work and now ask the liberal patronage of all our people. A special invitation is given to strangers, and a cordial welcome to all. The following committee of gentlemen to assist in the work have been selected by the ladies of the Presbyterian Aid Society.

Last Tuesday evening, at the residence of J. L. Huey, the social event of the season occurred. The Presbyterian ladies are renowned for their successful entertainments, but this, the auction social, excelled all others. The weather was somewhat inclement, but nevertheless the large residence was filled to its utmost capacity with guests to partake of Mr. and Mrs. Huey’s hospitality. The entertainment of the vast assemblage was begun by a panoramic view of a dream by Frank Hess. Mr. Hess indulged his appetite to too great an extent in mince pies, which caused him to pass into dreamland. As he lay in the arms of Morpheus, several unique, as well as very laughable, scenes were presented to the audience as Mr. Hess performed the role of a gentle deceiver. One scene was where Frank’s thoughts reverted to the laughing darkey who made the pie; finally Mr. Hess was awakened from dreamland, and the guests were then entertained by music and singing. The Chinese song, rendered by Messrs. Hutchison and Grosscup, was justly applauded. Their shadow picture imitations of Chinamen eating rats, resembled the real performance so perfectly that some of the guests’ appetites were stayed before supper was announced. The selling of the ladies now occurred. Rev. J. O. Campbell performed in the role of the auctioneer. To say that he was a success hardly expresses it. It sounded somewhat natural to hear his well trained voice crying: “I am offered 95, who will make it $1?” The auctioneering of the ladies was highly rousing, and the bidding lively. The good natured contest for the lady on sale, made the entertainment more enlivening. The ladies were all masked. The prices ranged from 75 cents up to $7.00, Miss Ida Lowe being the fortunate lady who brought that price. It will be seen by a glance at the list that Geo. W. Cunningham was almost equal to Brigham Young. We always knew George was a great admirer of the ladies, but never thought he had turned Mormon. Appended is the list of the “sold” ladies and their purchasers, as near as we could obtain them.
                 Listed: Miss Ella Love to E. D. Eddy; Mrs. E. D. Eddy to Ivan Robinson.
The purchase of a lady entitled the buyer to his supper. The handsome sum of $43.75 was realized in this manner. Mr. Cunningham’s disposal of one of his ladies to her husband for $1—25 cents commission. Songs were rendered by Mrs. Frank Beall, Rev. Harris’ two little boys, and others. Good instrumental music was interspersed in the programme. All in all, it was the event of the season.

In accordance with the announcement made in last week’s TRAVELER, the committee to count the beans in the bean guessing scheme of Sweeny & Smith, met in the office of Collins & Shelden at half past nine Tuesday morning. The number of tickets sold was about 1,350, of which 1,000 had been returned with guesses. A. C. Gould, J. M. Collins, W. J. Gray, and Will V. McConn, the committee, after a careful count, found the exact number to be 9,327, and awarded the prizes as follows.
First prize: a set of French-China dishes of 52 pieces, J. L. Mann. (Number guessed: 9,322.) Second prize: set of fancy table dishes, Joseph Hoskins and R. Knapp, tie. (Number guessed: 9,333.) Third prize: silver castor, J. Q. Ashton. (Number guessed: 9,326.) Fourth prize: hanging lamp, H. S. Ford. (Number guessed: 9,338.) Fifth prize: Meerschaum pipe and cigar holder, Edward Nail. (Number guessed: 9,300.) Sixth prize: Meerschaum pipe and cigar holder, H. S. Ford. (Number guessed: 9,293.) Seventh prize: five baskets of fine Japan tea, Mary Shindel. (Number guessed: 9,368.) Eighth prize: chamber set, Joe Garris. (Number guessed: 9,369.) Ninth prize: fancy lamp, E. D. Eddy. (Number guessed: 9,379.) Tenth prize: calico dress, Frank Bryant. (Number guessed: 9,282.) Eleventh prize: mustache cup and saucer, S. R. Turner. (Number guessed: 9,400.) Twelfth prize: fancy lamp, L. Pile. (Number guessed: 9,401.) Of the twelve guesses the farthest is only 73 from the number, which is very fair guessing for Kansans. It is to be remembered that the jar which contained the beans was globular—a form very deceptive. This will perhaps explain the difference in the guesses. It is extremely curious the different ways people look at things. For example, this bean guessing. The number guessed ranged from 1,320,000 down to 150; a slight difference of 1,319,850—the extreme views taken by two men. This business of guessing, like everything else, is governed by common sense rules that every man should certainly have at his finger’s end; and which every man may acquire a knowledge of if they only thought. A comparison instituted just here will illustrate our meaning. Ask almost any groceryman and he will tell you that a pint cup will hold in the neighborhood of 1,100 beans, average size. This is something we all ought to know. Taking this as a basis we have the following results: The man who guessed 150 guessed an amount that would just about cover the bottom of a pint cup—while the globe which contained the beans holds a little over a gallon. About one-third of the guesses would not figure up one pint. Take the other extreme now. The largest guess figures up over eighteen bushels. At least twenty-five guessed over five bushels. This is not good guessing, even for Kansans. Neither the shape of the vessel nor the difference in people will explain this wide difference. The only way we can solve this is that a great number of the guessers did not make use of their usual horse sense.
P. S. We will warrant that those who read this article and also guessed at the beans will never forget that a pint will hold about 1,300 beans—which is the moral that adorns the tale.

E. D. Eddy met with a serious accident last Friday. He was doing some work on the platform back of his store, and by some means slipped and fell, falling a distance of about ten feet onto the stone steps leading to the cellar, lighting on his side and stomach. He was quickly taken home, and Drs. Mitchell and Westfall, after examination, found bruises of a somewhat serious nature. We are glad to learn, however, that he is recovering faster than we thought possible.

The Winfield Courier states that the druggists of Cowley County have formed an association to be known as the “Cowley County Druggists Association,” whose purpose is the advancing in knowledge of pharmacy and understanding the proper application of the pharmacy law now in force, and for mutual protection and benefit. The druggists of Cowley seem disposed to deal fairly and honorably with the new prohibitory law. Should any one of them, however, take the risk of violating it, the penalties are such as to bring remorse deep, and awful; and with our present officials, no violator will escape. The meetings of the association will be held on the first Thursday of every month, at such place as the Association shall designate. The next meeting will be held in this city, when permanent officers will be elected. E. D. Eddy was chosen to preside at the last meeting.

It is well-known that we exclude patent medicines from our columns, because so large a number of the nostrums are villainous combinations which should be labeled “poison,” instead of “cure-alls.” The only exception to our rule is made in favor of Smith’s Bile Beans, a pill which has certainly proved a specific in the community for torpid liver, dyspepsia, biliousness, and chills and fever. This medicine has within our knowledge, effected remark-able cures which have been extensively noted, and has never failed to prove in the highest degree satisfactory and beneficial to invalids. We are always willing to advertise and assist the sale of a reliable remedy for human infirmities, hence the departure from our rule in favor of Smith’s Bile Beans. Texarkana Inter-State News.

Everybody was calm at the fire Thursday afternoon; no one was excited. E. D. Eddy was one of the most self-possessed men there. He was very cool. On his back was strapped one of those hand fire-extinguishers and he was getting in some good licks. He was standing at a side window of the burning building from which the smoke was pouring in big clouds, looking for a place where he could do the most good with a small amount of acid and water. Suddenly a red-headed man stuck his head out of the window. Bro. Eddy supposed it was the flames bursting forth and let drive with his extinguisher. Jim Ridenour, who was standing close by with his armful of hand grenades, banged away as fast as he could throw them at the supposed flames. Eddy’s extinguisher and Ridenour’s grenades were too much for the red-headed man. He disappeared from that window and shot out of the door looking for the men who were throwing brick bats at him. Eddy turned around to the admiring crowd and remarked, “See how I quenched those flames?” “No, you didn’t,” exclaimed Ridenour. “I did it.” Who put the flames out as yet has not been decided.

The liquor trade of the county for July seems to have been an exceptionally good one; in fact, the best since the inauguration of free whiskey. The total number of statements filed for last month is 3,079, against 3,052 for May and 2,607 for June. Compared with last month Arkansas City has dropped a little—very little—in number of statements while Winfield has pulled up a notch or two. The former phenomena may be accounted for by the burning out of brother Grimes, who had latterly stood well to the front in amount of whiskey disposed of. These 3,079 statements are divided among the various towns and dealers as follows.
Winfield: Harter, 122; Glass, 132; Brown & Son, 259; Williams, 208. Total: 711.
Arkansas City: Steinberger, 536; Fairclo, 208; Eddy, 208; Mowry & Sollitt, 236; Kellogg & Coombs, 290. Total: 1,478.
Burden: Woolsey, 355; Grand Summit: Avery, 155; Dexter: Phelps, 182; Cambridge: Rule, 20; Udall: Martin, 69; Roberts, 103. These statements represent a nice little harvest to the probate judge for this month of $159.95. Winfield Telegram.
In justice to our druggists and the name of our city, the REPUBLICAN announces that it is informed by Judge Gans that fully one-half of the statements filed by our druggists are for parties residing in the Territory. While the Winfield men claim we drink so much, the fact is we do not consume as much liquor as the inhabitants of the Hub. Our Territory trade is all filed from Arkansas City.

The ladies of the Presbyterian Church gave their concert Tuesday evening in Highland Opera House. A large audience was in attendance and thus in every respect the entertainment was made a success. The performances bespeak well of the musical talent of Arkansas City. Our space this week is quite limited, therefore, we cannot mention the performers individually in detail. Little Miss Bertha Eddy and Master Geo. Fairclo rendered the song of the “Little Milkmaid” so charmingly that they captivated the audience. “Come where the Lilies Bloom,” by the quartette (Messrs. Hutchison and Meeker and Mesdames Eddy and Newman) was especially well rendered. Mrs. J. O. Campbell sang the beautiful solo, “When the Tide Comes In,” superbly and pleased the audience so well that they would not allow her to retire without favoring them with another song. The “Song of Seven” was well rendered by Misses Pearl Newman, Mary Love, Mary Theaker, Abbie Hamilton, Flora Gould, Nellie Thompson, and Belle Everett. The recitation of Miss Lillie Cunningham was pleasing and the lady was long and loudly applauded. All the performers received frequent and hearty encores.

On Monday, Mrs. E. D. Eddy gave a farewell reception to Mrs. Walton, mother to Mrs. Stacy Matlack and Mrs. Topliff, who will leave the city for her home in Maryland, next Tuesday. This estimable lady has been the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Matlack through the winter. Those present at the festivity were Mesdames Walton, S. Matlack, Topliff, Searing, Newman, Wyard Gooch, Carrie Morse, Betsey W. Sherburne (mother to Mrs. Eddy), Joseph H. Sherburne, and Frederic Lockley. Invitations were sent to several other ladies, who were probably deterred from attending on account of the inclement weather. A pleasant afternoon was spent, and in the evening an elegant repast was served. On separating the guest of the evening received the warmest assurances of esteem and friendship from all present, and her departure will be regretted by all within her social circle.

Died, in this city, on Sunday night, of laryngitis, Carrie M., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. Eddy, aged 6 years and 5 months. There was an elegant display of flowers at the funeral services of little Carrie Eddy yesterday, and among the most liberal contributors to this floral profusion was Mrs. H. P. Standley. When the funeral cortege arrived at the grave, it was found that the loving hands of playmates had decorated the mound of earth with wild flowers woven into tasteful designs, and the sides of the grave were similarly garlanded.

On Saturday evening Mrs. Lockley, living in the first ward, gave a grandmothers’ tea party. The principal guests were Mrs. Morse, mother-in-law to Mrs. Carrie Morse, aged 90 years; Mrs. Eddy, mother to E. D. Eddy, on a visit to her son’s family, but who left the city yesterday to stay awhile with another son, Mr. George Eddy in Leavenworth. This bright old lady has attained the patriarchal age of 80 years. Mrs. Sherburne, mother to Joseph H. Sherburne and to Mesdames Eddy and Morse, was another member of the party, but this lady was a comparative juvenile, being under seventy years. Mrs. Jerome Steele, also a grand-mother, but brisk and debonair, was another of the party, and the hostess herself is also a grandmother. Mrs. E. D. Eddy and Mrs. Carrie Morse were also present, but these ladies may be classed as juveniles. The more ancient sisters kept pace with the younger folk in vivacity and small talk, speaking of themselves as girls, and deprecating their unconstrained behavior. It was a notable gathering, and when the party broke up, the old ladies, with the exception of Mrs. Morse, who begins to feel the burden of ninety winters, walked home as briskly and in as good spirits as a bevy of city belles.

E. D. Eddy has a very stiff and a very sore neck. He was storing a crate of his holidays wares away in his cellar, which weighed about 500 pounds, when it rolled over against him and gave his neck and shoulder a severe jerk. In connection, we wish to say Mr. Eddy is getting in a mammoth stock of holiday goods. Probably it is unequaled in Southern Kansas.

For some time past E. D. Eddy has been having an unwelcome nocturnal visitor at his house. He came around when the family retired every night and got into the cellar. The inmates of the house had no difficulty in discovering when he came. He heralded his approach by a very peculiar and offensive odor which is unpurchasable at any drug store. Friend Eddy determined to cut the visits short, so last evening he placed a trap in the cellar and caught the animal which caused him to dream of skunks for a fortnight past. To get rid of him was the next thing on the program, which was done by introducing chloroform into the box-trap. In consequence of the above, Mr. Eddy has a suit of clothes to dispose of very cheaply.

Remembering the Poor. We mentioned, a few weeks since, the misfortunes of a deserving family in the first ward, who lost their oldest son, a boy twelve years old, from typho-malaria, and their next boy, eighteen months younger, down with the same disease. They have since moved into the second ward somewhere near the Santa Fe track, the young sufferer still prostrate with this malady and the family suffering from extreme poverty. They do not belong to that class who are forward to make their wants known, and the ladies of the different church societies overlooked them while going about doing good. On Christmas eve, however, their condition became known to Capt. Rarick, who has a big heart to feel for another’s woe, and accompanied by a neighbor, Capt. M. V. Caller, [?] who is here from Colorado to spend the winter, the two in a short collecting tour, gathered up $19.80, sufficient to make their beneficiaries a Happy Christmas. They took the money to the Diamond store, where they bought a turkey and half a wagon load of useful provisions. The proprietor, John Kroenert, sold the goods at cost, and threw in a sack of flour as a Christmas gift. E. D. Eddy also gave proof of his liberality by dispensing medicines for the sick child at a nominal cost. Dr. Grimes was detailed to deliver the goods, and he presented himself to the delighted family, a veritable Santa Claus.

The jug breaking last night at the Presbyterian Church was a great success. The ladies of the Home and Foreign Missionary Society sent out jugs into the homes of the congregation last July and met last evening to ascertain the result. An interesting programme had been arranged and was all carried out as follows. Singing: “Work for the Night is Coming,” by congregation; Bible Reading, conducted by president, Mrs. Atwood; Prayer, Mrs. Jenkins; Quartette by choir; Secretary’s Report, Mrs. Fleming; Treasurer’s Report, Mrs. L. F. McLaughlin; Recitation, “For Love’s Sake,” Miss M. Theaker; Solo, “Not a Sparrow Falleth,” Mrs. Eddy; Jug Breaking, by Odie McConn and Mamie Oliphant; Counting of money, by J. C. Topliff and Irving French; Amount: $80; Recitation, “Last Hymn,” Miss Cunningham; Benediction, Rev. S. B. Fleming. The music by the choir was very fine and the recitations by Miss Theaker and Miss Cunningham merit special praise. The house, notwithstanding the stormy evening, was about full and altogether the entertainment was very pleasant and profitable to all present. It is to be hoped that the good ladies will frequently exercise their gifts in such entertainments.

Dug Smith was the handsome blonde clerk in the Arcade restaurant. Yesterday morning a man by the name of Waterhouse went into the Arcade and walking up to the counter behind which Smith was standing, pulled a carving knife from his sleeve, and remarked: “Dug Smith, come from behind that counter.” Smith replied, “Alright,” and started for the opening. As soon as he had gotten around, he scooted out the back door and around across Summit Street into Eddy’s Drug Store, and through the back door. He was followed by Waterhouse, who was stopped by one of Eddy’s clerks fastening the back door as soon as Smith went through. Smith has not been seen since. Waterhouse and wife left town this morning. Waterhouse charges Smith with endeavoring to win the affection of his wife from him.
