Arkansas City Republican, Saturday, October 10, 1885.
J. F. Henderson and D. R. Beatty made a big cattle purchase Wednesday. They bought 206 head of fat cattle and the brand of Shepard & Dixon. The consideration was $4,500; 135 head were fat three year old steers, and will be slaughtered by Beatty & Henderson for their meat market. This is the largest cattle transaction that has occurred for some time.
