Editor Traveler:
This is a new place on the bottom opposite Rocky ford. It is a place that in the near future promises to rival all other cities in Cowley County. The bottom contains about one thousand acres—its size admitting of its being densely populated. Its settlers have tried to raise corn and wheat for exportation, but the raging Rackensack forms one boundary, and impassible bluffs the other, and the citizens have generally given it up until aerial navigation shall have been perfected, or the Government appropriates money to help build the Topliff, Moore, and Denton road.
Arkansas City Traveler, July 10, 1878.
LOST. In William Moore’s peach orchard, on the road to my dwelling in East Bolton, on the 7th of July, a small pocket memorandum book, of no value to anyone but the owner. Any person finding it will confer a favor by leaving it at this office or letting it be known.

Arkansas City Traveler, May 14, 1879.
Wm. Moore, Proprietor of the lime kiln southeast of town, started for Colorado last week to see the country and no more lime may be expected from him this summer.
Arkansas City Traveler, May 21, 1879.

The people over in Bolton held a picnic in Moore’s grove last Saturday afternoon. In the evening a dance took place at the Bland Schoolhouse and everything passed off lovely.
Arkansas City Traveler, December 24, 1879.
DIED. Mr. William Moore of Bolton township died in Colorado last week, of heart disease.
Arkansas City Traveler, August 10, 1881.
Mr. Walter Fry, who has been renting the farm of his sister, Mrs. W. H. Moore, in East Bolton, has sold out his interest in the crops and proposes to remove to Guildford, Wilson County, Kansas, where he will engage in the stock business, untrammeled by the restrictions of a herd law. He, with his wife and child, will make the trip by wagon, and they expect to start today.
