George E. Raymond

                                                          [Handled Sheep.]
                      City of Winfield 1880: G. E. Raymond, 45; spouse, Anna, 33.
Also: Mr. and Mrs. Frank K. Raymond. He was a court stenographer and like George E. Raymond, came from Ohio, going first to El Dorado before Winfield. It appears that Frank was related to George E. Raymond. He might have been his son.
                                               FROM THE NEWSPAPERS.
Winfield Courier, October 9, 1879.
Several fine Merinos were exhibited by Mr. Raymond, of Knox County, Ohio, who has recently located in our county, and intends to deal exclusively in sheep and wool. He has a flock of 500 thoroughbred Merinos, and is decidedly in favor of fine wooled sheep.
Winfield Courier, May 27, 1880.
Four more horses were stolen from this vicinity Monday night, two belonging to Capt. Stubblefield and two to Mr. Ray­mond. These make over a dozen horses that have been stolen within the past few months. Some stringent measures must be taken to stop this wholesale stealing, and if it continues we are liable to have a repetition of the Douglass tragedies.

Winfield Courier, January 27, 1881.

Wm. Newton called our attention to the fact that we were considerably off on the wool clip of this last year for this and Sumner counties. That it is very much in excess of the figures that we gave. The truth of it is that Kansas editors are so often accused of exaggeration, that owing to our natural modes­ty, we would much prefer to be below the real figures than above, but we have no intention of letting our scruples do an injustice to one of our most important industries. Another reason for our error was the report of the Kansas state board of agriculture, which is wrong in its figures. The wool clip of Cowley County last year, instead of being thirty thousand pounds, was upwards of two hundred thousand, and Sumner, instead of fifteen, was upwards of a hundred thousand pounds. George E. Raymond alone had twelve thousand pounds, Mr. Meech ten thousand, Youle Broth­ers fifteen thousand, Yarbrough nine thousand, Parks, of Cam­bridge, about the same amount, and lots of fellows yet to hear from. The truth of it is, the sheep interest in Cowley has in three years sprung from nothing until it has reached such propor­tions that none of us can keep the run of it.
Winfield Courier, June 16, 1881.
A considerable number of the citizens of Winfield met on Monday evening on the steps of the Winfield Bank to provide for raising funds for the immediate relief of the sufferers caused by the cyclone Sunday evening. Mr. Crippen called the people together by music from the band.
G. E. Raymond contributed $5.00.
Winfield Courier, June 23, 1881.
G. E. Raymond is shipping three or four carloads of wool daily.

                           Winfield Exposition for the Benefit of the Methodist Church.
When a church organization determines to engage in an important undertaking, whose success depends upon the patronage of the general public for its financial support and success, it is proper and right that the public should know what the object is, and for what purpose the money that is made is to be used.
About every person in Winfield, whether church members or not, feel a just pride in our beautiful church edifices. While the Methodist Church is one of the largest, yet extensive repairs are necessary to bring it up to the Winfield standard. These repairs will cost at least  a thousand dollars. Of this amount one-half has been raised by subscription, and it is in-tended to raise the other half by an Exposition. Before giving the general features of such proposed entertainment, or rather series of entertainments, it will be best to say a further necessity exists that these repairs be made this year, for reason that the Southwest Kansas Conference will meet here next March, and the house in which the Conference is to be held should be in a creditable shape.
So much for the object, and now the details.
The Exposition will be in charge of the ladies of the M. E. Church, who will be assisted by a large number of ladies who are not members; and about all the men who have been spoken to have promised their cooperation. It is an extensive enterprise and will require many able and hearty workers.
The Exposition will open Monday, July 3rd, and will continue during the week following.
It will be held in the Methodist Church; with the removal of the seats, it will give more room than any hall.
The following is a brief outline of the leading features of the Exposition.

1. Indian Wigwam filled with novelties and curiosities made by the Indians, which will be for sale, presided over by genuine Indian with Squaw and Papoose in full Indian costume.
2. A Chinese department with native Chinaman, Chinese curiosities, and a refreshment stand at which will be served tea in Chinese style and eating a la Celestial.
3. A Curiosity or Museum department, where will be exhibited rare and valuable curiosi-ties from every source obtainable. Enough has already been promised to make this a leading and one of the most interesting features of the Exposition.
4. A Floral department at which will be for sale choice exotics.
5. An East India department, which will be filled with a variety of rare curiosities brought from the Orient by our Missionaries, and lent the Exposition for the occasion.
6. An Art Gallery which will embrace Paintings, Pictures, Stereoscopic views, and other works of art.
7. A Persian and Turkish department presided over by young ladies of our city habited in full Persian and Turkish costumes.
8. There will be a Fancy Bazar at which will be sold a variety of useful and ornamental articles. And it is well to say here that it is intended that every article sold shall be worth the money. Much that will be sold will be cheaper than if procured direct from the dealers.
9. Last but not least there will be new features and surprises. On the first evening there will be a Broom Brigade by young ladies in full costume. The company is already in training.
It is desired and expected that the Church will have assistance and patronage from sister towns and cities. Excursion rates are already promised.
Admission 25 cents. MRS. GEO. RAYMOND, President.
Winfield Courier, June 22, 1882.
In last week’s COURIER we gave a brief outline of the object of this great enterprise, and what the ladies of the M. E. Church proposed to have on exhibition. We are glad to be able to say that they have been remarkably successful in obtaining a great variety of rare and valuable curiosities. Everywhere they have canvassed, both at home and abroad, they have met a hearty response from all classes. The indications now are that it will greatly exceed in all respects their most sanguine expectations. Justly noted as Winfield is for her wonderful enterprise, and her great surprises, we think this “Loan Exposition” of the M. E. Church will surpass in value, real worth, and attractiveness all that has gone before it.
We invite all our people, all over our county and from adjoining counties, to avail them-selves of this opportunity to see this great collection of curiosities and works of art. We will mention a few of the attractions that will be on exhibition, viz.: A large collection of curiosities from India—including their peculiar costumes, their idols, real India shawls, Ostrich egg, elephant’s tooth, Mastodon’s tooth, etc. A large collection from China and Japan, and other foreign countries—stuffed birds and animals, geological specimens, ancient coins, choice and valuable oil paintings, battle flag of Gen. Taylor at Buena Vista, Bible that Bishop Asbury carried, old English law book 140 years old, parts of the remains of a huge Mastodon, and part of the head and horns of an extinct species of animal which measures nearly 12 feet from tip to tip of horns—both dug out of a sand bank near Wellington.
The articles already promised will amount in numbers to hundreds, and probably thousands; and they are still collecting from all possible quarters. Beside all these very rare and valuable collections, there will be very much else to interest and profit the visitors.

The young ladies of Winfield, with Miss Jessie Millington as their chairman, have generously offered to give during the evening some splendid aesthetic exercises in full costume.
The Persian and Turkish department, under the management of the Misses Aldrich in full costume, will be very fine.
The broom brigade of Winfield’s fair young ladies will be very amusing.
The fan brigade by the little girls will be very fine.
The Irish department, with the old Irish lady to sell peanuts, etc., will be rich.
The American Department, under the management of an able corps of the first ladies of our city, is intended to be the best of all.
The Ladies Bazar will be full of a great variety of their handy-work on sale.
The youth and children have not been overlooked. They will have a table loaded with the work of their own tiny hands, which work will be sold by them for the benefit of the church.
Of course, there will be lemonade, ice cream, soda, and a restaurant.
There will be music, vocal and instrumental, tableaux, etc.
We will give the details more fully in the next issue, but hope we have given enough in this to satisfy everybody that it will be to their interest to visit this first Loan Exposition of Winfield.
The ladies will also have refreshments at Riverside Park on the 4th of July, and a full line of omnibuses and wagons to carry all persons who may desire from the Park to the Exposition. Tickets will be on sale at the Park for the Exposition.
                                           MRS. GEO. RAYMOND, President.
S. S. HOLLOWAY, Secretary.
Winfield Courier, July 20, 1882.
The ladies of the “M. E. Church Loan Exposition,” made nearly $400 out of it, clear of all expenses. They most heartily thank all the good people of Winfield and vicinity for their very liberal support. On behalf of exposition. MRS. GEO. RAYMOND, President
S. S. HOLLOWAY, Secretary.

Tuesday night was a picnic evening with horse thieves. Mr. Raymond had two horses stolen, Mr. I. H. Kinney had his two ponies stolen, and Mr. Hurd lost his buggy, harness, and saddle. There was also a horse stolen from near Udall.
Winfield Courier, July 27, 1882.
Nothing has yet been heard of the thieves who took four horses from Kinney and Raymond and a buggy, harness, and saddle from Hurd, last week. They left an old brown mare here which they had stolen near Wichita, and one of the thieves is a Wichita jail-breaker.
Winfield Courier, August 17, 1882.

Sheriff Shenneman captured two negro horse thieves Monday. They had stolen horses from the Territory and sold them to Patterson, of Arkansas City. As soon as Shenneman got his eyes on them, he knew they were horse thieves, and took them in. He raked in another man Tuesday. It was the one who stole Mr. Raymond’s ponies and Mr. Hurd’s buggy some weeks ago. Some think it is Tom Quarles, who will be remembered by early settlers as a pretty bad case. He was living with a woman at Independence and had in his possession Hurd’s buggy and harness, one of Raymond’s horses, and a horse that was stolen from L. C. Norton at Arkansas City. Shenneman is a terror to horse thieves.
Winfield Courier, September 21, 1882. Editorial by D. A. Millington.
Denver is a great, a wonderful city. To a tenderfoot it is difficult to explain why Denver continues to grow so rapidly and increase in its business and he is ready to predict that it has reached its climax and will soon be on the decline; but such predictions have been made every year for the last fifteen years and no symptoms of decline yet. On the contrary, it is growing more rapidly this year than ever before. Though it has an almost countless number of large, beautiful, and costly buildings, yet very many more are being built this year and there is demand for all of them.
THE EXPOSITION. The grand display of the mineral, agricultural, and mechanical products of every state and territory west of the Mississippi was much the finest and most beautiful display we ever saw. The high merits of the display were largely enhanced by the beauty and taste of the arrangements, the Exposition building was large and magnificent, with plenty of room so that there was no crowd or jam; the weather was cool and pleasant, and everything was delightful and enjoyable.
We met in the Exposition building, Mrs. Geo. E. Raymond of this place. She was looking well and expected to return home next week.

From the following items found in the Wellington Democrat, it seems that a good many of Winfield’s citizens were in some way attracted to that burg last week.

“Ivan Robinson, of Winfield was in the city this week. Henry E. Asp and wife, of Winfield, were in the city on Wednesday last. Dr. Cole, Miss Nellie Cole, and Dr. Emerson and wife, of Winfield, were in the city on Tuesday last. S. G. Gary, J. Wade McDonald, and F. K. Raymond, all of Winfield were in the city this week attending court. Senator W. P. Hackney of Winfield, was a pleasant caller on Tuesday last. Although opposed to Mr. Hackney, politically, we cannot help admiring the man. Tony Sykes, the foreman of the Winfield Courier for ten years, was in the city Tuesday, and we had the pleasure of a hand shake with him. Sykes is one of the best job and general printers in the State.”

Judge E. S. Torrance and Frank Raymond left the law-dispensing machine at Sedan Sunday, drove twenty-three miles to the railroad before daylight, and came home to spend six hours and take dinner. They made the same route in the evening, arriving at Sedan in the middle of the night. Men who will ride one hundred and fifty miles to get a square meal and a peep at “the folks at home” deserve chromos of the highest merit.

Court is ended. Judge Torrance, Frank Raymond, and Senator Hackney, whose pleasant faces had almost become familiar among our citizens, left Sedan Tuesday as court adjourned. This has been a long and wearisome term and it failed to reach any civil business at all.

When the varied superiority of the Queen City of Southern Kansas is fired at a Wellington citizen, it completely paralyzes him. Listen to the Standard’s honest acknowledgment: “Frank Raymond, our ‘short-hand’ friend of Winfield, came over to take the evidence in the Edwards trial and during the week put in his odd time blowing up our sister city. He seemed attached to the Standard man, who in an unguarded moment made some complimentary remark about Winfield, and for that one foolish statement we were referred to for all kind of facts that we knew no more about than ‘the man in the moon.’ Frank Raymond and Judge Torrance are very agreeable companions until you mention the subject of ‘Winfield.’ The best course after the conversation takes that turn is to skip for any place where you can get out of sight.”

Frank K. Raymond has been appointed official stenographer of the Nineteenth Judicial District and is now reporting in the Sumner County court at Wellington. While he is engaged in the courts of our district, his duties in that district if coming at the same time, will be performed by a special reporter. Frank is recognized as one of the most expert and accurate stenographers in the west, and receives honors accordingly.

Winfield Courier, Thursday, June 18, 1885.
F. K. Raymond, the court stenographer, heard last week for the first time that the Newton branch of the Ft. Scott road ran through his Butler County farm, and instead of going home for Sunday, took a run up to Butler to learn the truth. The first thing he saw upon arriving at the farm was a construction train which was puffing through his land. The road enters the land at the southeast corner and leaves it at the northwest corner, cutting the stock water from the grass land. To say Frank is disgusted with railroads is but faintly expressing his feelings. The Wellingtonian suggests that he immediately lay out a town on his land, in the way of hedging against loss. Wellingtonian.

The Chautauqua Union held a very enjoyable meeting Friday evening in the capacious home of Mr. and Mrs. G. S. Manser. An interesting literary and musical program was rendered, notable in which were the duet by Mr. Slack and Dr. Guy, with piano accompaniment by Miss Bertha Wallis; the Chautauqua, a splendidly edited paper by Moore Tanner and a recitation by Mamie Greer. The Chautauqua sparkled all over and exhibited much natural tact and application. The genial entertainment of Mr. and Mrs. Manser made the heartiest sociability. This Union, including old and young, is one of the city’s most beneficial and pleasurable societies. Its next meeting convenes in two weeks, with Mrs. Frank K. Raymond.

The most fashionable novelty is five o’clock luncheon, a full-dress reception of ladies only, for tea and an hour or two of social chat, such as only ladies, when untrammeled by the awkward presence of men—who were never made to talk—can enjoy. Last evening Winfield had the first full-fledged introduction of this pleasurable novel. It was a reception by Mrs. A. H. Doane and Mrs. D. L. Kretsinger, two of the city’s most delightful entertainers, at the home of Mrs. Doane. A little after four the invited guests began to arrive and by 5 o’clock the parlors were a scene of the liveliest mirth and social freedom, the following prominent ladies being present: Mesdames C. H. Taylor, C. L. Harter, Ray Oliver, George Raymond, George Rembaugh, J. F. Balliet, G. H. Buckman, O. Branham, W. H. Albro, Ela Albright, E. M. Albright, J. J. Carson, L. M. Williams, J. A. Eaton, J. C. Miller, Col. McMullen, J. F. McMullen, B. W. Matlack, C. C. Collins, Henry Brown, Lewis Brown, J. H. Tomlin, E. P. Young, J. N. Young, Dr. Van Doren, M. J. Darling, W. H. Shearer, R. E. Wallis, D. A. Millington, Wm. Mullen, H. L. Holmes, W. P. Hackney, Dr. Brown, M. L. Robinson, Geo. Robinson, S. D. Pryor, Dr. Emerson, M. L. Whitney, J. L. Horning, J. D. Pryor, Geo. W. Miller, Edwin Beeney, Frank Doane, and Miss Lena Oliver. At the appointed hour a luncheon of choice delicacies, with a sprinkling of appropriate substantials, was bounteously and gracefully served. It was one of the happiest gatherings imaginable. The ladies were all handsomely and fashionably attired. By half past six all had departed, realizing the pleasantest reception for many a day. The main object of the “five o’clock luncheon” is to dissipate the inconveniences of the “fashionable call,” where all is prim form, with little opportunity for forming genuine friendships. It is certainly a most admirable mode of widening friendships among the ladies of the city, as all will attest who experienced the very agreeable hospitality of Mrs. Doane and Mrs. Kretsinger, on this occasion.
