Bullene erects new building opposite cigar factory...
Winfield Courier, December 6, 1877.
J. G. Bullene is erecting a new building on Main street, opposite the cigar factory.
I gather that the cigar factory was that of Mr. Chas. Birnbaum. The Winfield Courier never gave an address for this short-lived factory.

A. McInturff left yesterday morning for Florence. He will probably go into business at that place. He is a first-class artist in the photograph line, and we wish him the success he so well merits wherever he may locate.

Died, on Monday evening, at 4 o’clock, of croup, Albert, son of Mr. and Mrs. McInturff, aged 6 years.
McInturff was listed in the 1880 Winfield Directory. However, the newspapers did not print anything about him until April 20, 1882. It appears that in 1882 McInturff was located above the Wallis & Wallis Brothers Grocery Store...
Cowley County Courant, April 20, 1882.
A couple of ladies were examining the pictures in McInturff’s show case the other day when a wag, whose name we will not divulge, pointed out to them O. M. Seward’s photo as that of Jesse James, when they both exclaimed, “Oh, my, he looks just like a robber!”

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, November 22, 1883.
ROLL OF HONOR. We publish below the roll of old soldiers in this county drawing pensions from the government for injuries sustained on account of service, with monthly rate of allowance. It shows that there are one hundred and forty-six soldiers in the county drawing pensions, and that the government pays to them monthly the aggregate sum of $1,509.66¾. This is a record that no county but ours can show. It is certainly one that “Cares for him who has born the brunt of battle and for his widows and orphans.”
McInturff, Andrew, Winfield, g s w rt shoulder, $8.00 monthly.
Above item was the last one that I could find on A. McInturff. MAW
