J. S. McIntire

                                               FROM THE NEWSPAPERS.
Winfield Courier, December 14, 1882.
Mr. J. S. McIntire has purchased the McInturff photograph gallery over Wallis & Wallis’ grocery store. He is reputed to be a very fine artist.
Winfield Courier, December 21, 1882.
A Card to the Public. Having bought the Photograph Rooms formerly owned by A. McInturff over Wallis & Wallis’ Grocery Store, and having remodeled it and refitted with side-light, making it second to none in the state, we feel confident that with our present facilities we can please the most fastidious in taste and style of pictures. We make a specialty of copying and enlarging old pictures and working them up in Oil, Crayon, India Ink, or Water Colors. We also keep on hand a full line of frames, albums, etc., cheaper than the cheapest, for framing our own work. Please give us a call and examine our stock and work before going elsewhere. We are practical workmen, having operated in some of the largest cities in the East. We hope by strict attention to business and promptness in doing our work to merit a share of your patronage. J. S. McINTIRE, Artist.

Winfield Courier, January 18, 1883.
J. S. McIntire, the photographer, would inform his patrons and the pubic generally that he guarantees his work to give entire satisfaction. He does all his own work and finishes the same, the report to the contrary notwithstanding.
Winfield Courier, January 25, 1883.
We will resit any of our patrons with pleasure if first proof is not satisfactory. Remember the place, McIntire’s photograph gallery, over Wallis & Wallis grocery store.
Winfield Courier, February 1, 1883.
The following petition was circulated last week by Frank Manny, taken to Topeka, and presented by him to Senator Hackney.
WINFIELD, KANSAS, January 23, 1883.
HON. W. P. HACKNEY, State Senator, Topeka, Kansas.

Inasmuch as the Prohibition Amendment, as enforced, has always resulted in injury to the material development of our town—it having signally failed to accomplish the object sought, the suppression of the sale and use of intoxicating drinks—we would respectfully urge upon you the necessity of so providing for the enforcement of the law that its application shall be uniform throughout the State. If this is impossible, don’t sacrifice our town on the altar of inordinate devotion to an impracticable principle.
J. S. McIntire was one of those who signed above petition.
Winfield Courier, May 17, 1883.
Mr. McIntire’s skylight got demolished by the hail storm, doing considerable damage.
Winfield Courier, September 27, 1883.
BIRTH. Mr. J. S. McIntire, the photographer, is feeling very happy in the possession of a nine pound boy, which made an appearance at his house on Wednesday night of last week.
Winfield Courier, September 27, 1883.
The first place visited as nearest the entrance, was the general exhibition hall.
Next to this is the Fine Art department, conducted by Miss Kate Millington, the most prominent among which are specimens of photography from the galleries of Winfield’s artists, Messrs. Rodocker, McIntire, and Beck Bros., and a finer display we challenge the state to produce.
Winfield Courier, December 27, 1883.
A merry party of young people, all members of Mr. J. S. McIntire’s Sunday school class, met at his residence Tuesday evening to wind up the Christmas festivities in social intercourse.
Winfield Courier, October 2, 1884.
M. F. Kelly, of northern Indiana, has bought the photography gallery formerly owned by McIntire, is open and ready to do first-class work. Give him a trial and be convinced. You will find Kelly a gentleman and always ready to wait on his customers.
