Winfield Courier, June 6, 1878.
B. F. Baldwin has sold out his stock of drugs and books to Messrs. Brown & Glass, and retires from business. This is mainly on account of his health, which has become much impaired during his active business life in this place. His gentlemanly address and genial smile will be sadly missed at the counter by his numerous warm friends and customers, but he will remain with us and attend to his property interests.
Winfield Courier, June 6, 1878.
The new firm of Brown & Glass, who succeed to the business of B. F. Baldwin, is composed of Mr. Henry Brown, late of Pueblo, Colorado, and Mr. Quincy A. Glass, late of Chicago. Mr. Brown is one of the early settlers of Kansas, having lived at Lawrence for seventeen years and having taken an active part in the early Kansas struggles. He is a gentleman of good address and will please his customers. Mr. Glass is an experienced druggist, having been in the business from early boyhood. He is a pleasant gentleman, and the new firm will sustain the popularity of the house.

Clisbee, the most popular drug clerk in the town, has just returned from a visit to Topeka, and is at the prescription case day and night.

MARRIED. Mr. Quincy Glass has just returned from a visit to Chicago, where he was supposed to have gone to buy drugs, but it seems that he was after something besides drugs. A fair lady accompanies him, who has taken him for better or worse. We congratulate the happy couple, and hope this fabric of glass will prove of the “can’t break ‘em” variety.

You cannot keep George Rhodes down. Though burned out Wednesday morning at three o’clock by fire, he has secured office room from Quincy A. Glass and was again filling orders for coal. It has only been about two months since he purchased the burned property from his former partner, A. Hughes.
Ivan Robinson is just boss when it comes to working at a fire. He saw the danger to Glass’ awning and he grabbed a small club and went to work trying to beat it down. There were three fellows on top if it at the same time, and fortunately for their necks, Ivan failed in his desperate effort.
Scene of the fire Wednesday morning: Two emotional young ladies standing near the burning buildings as the Winfield fire department came clattering up with the chemical engine. “Oh!” says one, “they’ve saved the sausage stuffer!” “Why, no, my dear:” said the other, “that is Quincy Glass’ soda-water ma­chine.”

Winfield Courier, May 5, 1881.
                                               QUINCY GLASS, DRUGGIST.
My general trade is better than it was a year ago. My prescription trade is less, because there is less sickness. I account for a better general trade by having a better stock and better location. I do not think the prohibitory law has affected my trade in any way. After May first I do not intend to sell liquor on prescriptions and that will effect my trade but slight­ly.

After the supreme court shall have defined the law, I shall decide my course, but at present I do not deem it prudent to give bond and take out a permit. The law is putting druggists in an unpleasant situation, but the idea that it will be a damage to the city and county is all nonsense.
                                                   HENRY BROWN & SON,
Druggists and Booksellers: Don’t think our trade is quite so good as it was a year ago, but it is very good, much better than we expected. Our trade would be much better ordinarily, but there is very little call for medicines and almost no sickness in the county. Physicians are all complaining of little business. We are going to take out a license, and sell for legitimate purposes in a legitimate way, and the prohibitory law will not affect this part of our trade in any way. We like the law and are going to support it. We have commenced to build a new house for our business. It will be 23 x 77, two stories and basement, of Winfield stone with brick front, iron columns, and plate glass, and will cost $3,500.
Winfield Courier, May 19, 1881.
                                             WINFIELD, KAS., May 16, 1881.
To the Editor of the Courier:
It has been the custom for some time among a certain class of newspapers to take every opportunity of assaulting and vilify­ing the drug trade. Your paper has been no exception to the rest.
These assaults have generally been borne with silence, if not patience. Your editorial of May 12, contains a direct attack upon the course adopted by myself and the great majority of druggists in Kansas in regard to the new prohibitory laws. I should be false to myself as a man, and false to the reputation of the honorable business I follow, if I allowed this last article with its gross misstatements to pass unanswered.
Your assertion that our State Association is controlled by men who have been selling liquor as a beverage, under pretense of medical purposes, is untrue. Our president, Mr. R. J. Brown, of Leavenworth, bears as good a character as a Christian gentleman and temperance man as any man in Kansas, and the other officers and the members of the executive committee stand at the head of the profession in their respective localities. Our meeting at Topeka was held with open doors, and the proceedings were pub­lished in every paper in the State which chose to print them. I challenge you to find one sentence in the resolutions, or address of our president, recommending any violation of law. On the contrary, a strict compliance with the law was urged, and the recommendation to abstain from taking out permits was limited to the time necessary to make plain our status under the law by decisions in the courts.

I do not find in the law any requirement to take out a permit and sell whiskey. I find that a druggist may take out a permit if he chooses, but nothing compelling him to do so. To my mind, the druggist who takes out the permit and goes through the humiliating process necessary to obtain one, is the man who makes acknowledgment that it is impossible for him to live without the liquor trade, and not the man who refuses to sell at all. And I would most respectfully suggest that the place for you to look for violations of the law is not among those who are out of the liquor trade entirely, but among those who are furnishing it to the people by permits and prescriptions.
In conclusion, I will say that I have memoranda of at least one open violation of the law since May 1st, which is at the service of either yourself or the temperance committee if you have sand enough to engage in a prosecution which might make the law odious.
                                     Very respectfully yours, QUINCY A. GLASS.
Mr. Glass is evidently a little excited about something. He grows warm over our last week’s article on “Making the Law Odious,” and rushes recklessly into print. Had he taken time to cool off before writing his article, what he has to say would have been entitled to greater consideration. We give place to his communication not because he has the right under any rule of newspaper courtesy to attack us in the columns of our own jour­nal, but because he desires to be heard; and we are willing to gratify that desire so far as we can consistently.
When Mr. Glass asserts that this paper has taken “every opportunity of assaulting and vilifying the drug trade,” he states what he and everyone of our readers knows to be false. To oppose legitimate drug trade would be puerile. It is true we have condemned the sale of intoxicating liquors as a beverage, whether by druggists or others. We have convictions in regard to this matter that we have spoken freely and which we expect to continue to express. In our doing so, we have not supposed that we were interfering in any manner with the trade of any honorable druggist. We have always supposed that Mr. Glass was doing a straight and legitimate business and are scarcely able to account for his sensitiveness in regard to this matter.
We have nothing to take back of what we said concerning the men who control the druggists’ association of the State. The statement of Mr. Glass in regard to R. J. Brown, of Leavenworth, and the other officers of the association, is not conclusive evidence. We read the papers published at the homes of some of these men, and we have not forgotten the items they contained in regard to “long rows of well-filled jugs” sold for a day or two previous to the first of the present month.
Mr. Glass pretends to know of someone who since its taking effect has violated some provision of the prohibition law. If so, why does he not like a good citizen walk up to the County Attorney’s office and give him the facts? That is the manly course for him to pursue. Others may hesitate to act until they know what they can prove. If he knows that the law has been violated, let him state the facts. He will soon discover that the friends of temperance have the “sand” to see the law enforced.
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.

The Winfield Archery Club met at Riverside Park Friday afternoon for their first shoot. The distance was 30 yards at four foot targets. For novices the shooting was excellent.

Cowley County Courant, March 2, 1882.
We call the attention of our citizens to the communication from Mr. Thorpe in this issue, and we are glad to see them investigating the matter. The prospect of such a manufactory is decidedly pleasant to us, and we would like to see the matter given full attention. We don’t think there is any danger of Winfield becoming a “way station,” but we would not lose an opportunity to build up this city or advance her interests. Winfield is flourishing now, and we want it to continue in so doing and we think all our businessmen are with us in that desire.
The following are some of the well known citizens who fully endorse my proposition and who also agree to take shares in the corporation.
                                                      Listed: Quincy A. Glass.

                                                 A PETITION AND REPLY.
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.
                                  One of those who signed petition: Quincy A. Glass.

                                   The Stockholders Meet and Elect a New Board.
                                                         A Splendid Record.
On Monday afternoon the stockholders of the Cowley County Fair and Driving Park Association met in the Opera House for the purpose of re-organizing the Board of Directors for the year 1884, and receiving reports of the condition and doings of the Association for the year.

                                                              More Fires.
Again, on Sunday evening, an attempt was made to set fire to property in the city. A lot of hay was stuffed under the rear end of Hendricks & Wilson’s hardware store and ignited. It was done about half past seven o’clock in the evening. Mr. James McLain, who has been acting as night watchman, first discovered and put it out. Shortly before, when walking across Manning Street and Tenth Avenue, he passed a man who was walking hurriedly. As soon as he passed, the man broke into a run, and a moment after McLain discovered the fire. When he turned, the man had disappeared in the darkness. What the object of these incendiaries is cannot be defined. The fire in the Hodges barn could have injured but little business property if successful. The fire started in the Shenneman barn, immediately after, when the hose was handy and hundreds of people standing around to use it, could not have been set with a very villainous intent to destroy, as the destroyer might have known it would be put out in a minute. The setting of the Sunday evening fire early in the evening, when everyone was about, showed a lack of deep intent to do great injury.

                                                        Petition for Fishways.
It has been an evident fact for some years that the fish facilities of the crystal Walnut were not what they should be, and as a result its supply of the finny tribe was gradually exhausting. With an eye toward a remedy, Mr. Q. A. Glass recently inaugurated the following petition and got the signatures of over two hundred of our more prominent citizens.
To the State Fish Commission of the State of Kansas:
We, the undersigned, represent that there are several mill dams now constructed and maintained in the County of Cowley, State of Kansas, across the streams of this county, but principally across the Walnut River in this county, which are obstructions to the passage of fish, and in violation of the laws of the State in this case made and provided. Said dams are not provided with fish-ways as by law required, and we respectfully urge that you make an examination of said dams to the end that, if in your opinion the dams ought to be provided with fishways, the owners thereof may be required to construct them. We further represent that the Walnut is a considerable stream of extraordinary clear and pure water, equal in this respect to any stream in the State, and superior to many; it is fed by springs, and is well adapted to the growth and propagation of the better varieties if fish, and we respectfully ask you to examine the same and if proper and possible, that you place some of the fish stock for general distribution in this State in the said Walnut River.
Winfield Courier, October 16, 1884.
Quincy A. Glass has received a long letter from Fish Commissioner Giles relating to the fish-ways in the Walnut. The Commissioner has notified the County Attorney to have all dams provided with fishways at once. Mr. Glass has done an excellent thing for the public in drawing attention to this matter.

Winfield Courier, Thursday, January 1, 1885.

Mr. Glass entered the drug business in Winfield in the early days, and has ever maintained a good trade and business reputation. He is a first-class prescription druggist, carries a large and pure stock, is courteous and obliging, and will ever remain at the head of the drug procession in this city. In addition to his drug trade he deals in all kinds of coal and dispenses a large amount of this article.

                                            What it Takes to Preserve Health.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, April 9, 1885.
On the 31st day of March all the druggists in the county holding permits filed the applications of the persons to whom they had sold liquor with the probate judge, as provided by the new prohibitory law. The sales only covered part of the month, as the law did not go into effect until the 13th. Each druggist filed with his bunch of liquor applications an affidavit setting forth that they covered each, every, and all sales of intoxicating liquors made by him from the date on which his permit was granted to the 31st of March. The application which the party buying the liquor must make is to the following form:
My name is J. Michael O’Rafferty. I reside at Winfield, postoffice at Winfield; I want one pint of whiskey to be used for medical purposes. Said whiskey is not intended for a beverage, nor to sell or to give away, and is necessary and actually needed for the purpose stated. Said whiskey is for myself and is for medical purposes. The above statement is true. J. MICHAEL O’RAFFERTY, Applicant. Attest: JAMIE G. FAY, Druggist.

This, with the number and date attached, is the only document upon which Mr. O’Rafferty can by any legal construction procure “a drop of the crater” with which to wet his whistle these dry and dusty days. If he happens to indulge too freely, in other words, takes of his self-administered medicine an overdose, he is arrested and must dance to the following interesting passage which occurs about the middle of the new law.
“Every person whose statement as made for the purpose of obtaining intoxicating liquors shall be false in any material matter, or who shall sell or furnish any of the liquors  thereon obtained to others as a beverage, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction thereof shall be punished by a fine of not less than one hundred dollars nor more than five hundred dollars, and by imprisonment in the county jail not less than thirty days nor more than ninety days.
In other words, he must pay and go to jail both. Then the druggist is made a party to the act and if he winks at Mr. J. Michael O’Rafferty in a suspicious manner and gives out liquor on the statement, is bounced. . .

The dams must have fish-ways, and the Commissioner will see why they have been neglected. No river can be damned to the detriment of the finny tribe. Mr. Glass took this matter up some time ago, circulated the necessary petition, and has succeeded in getting initial action.

                                               ABOUT THE FINNY TRIBE.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, May 7, 1885.
I came into Cowley County and Winfield on Thursday, looking after the interests of fish culture and propagation, and on investigation, I find that there are a large number of persons who are engaged from time to time in catching fish in the Walnut and other streams, by the use of seines, nets, and various other devices other than with the hook. Now I wish to say to all persons who have been thus engaged, that it is in plain violation of law, which forbids the catching of fish in the state of Kansas with a seine or net of any kind, during the months of “April, May, and June,” and all persons who so engage, are subject to a severe penalty, and it is my intention to see that the law in this particular shall be strictly enforced hereafter, and I call on all law-abiding citizens to desist from the violation of this law, and to assist in its enforcement, by reporting its violators to your county attorney, whose duty it is to prosecute all offenders. This law applies to all the waters of the state, whether the Walnut, the Arkansas, or any other stream. Especial complaint has been made of the extensive violation of this law along the Walnut, below Searing & Mead’s mill. Now, I want to say in all kindness that those parties must desist from this continued violation of the law at their peril. I wish to further say that after the owners of mill dams put in fishways (which they have all agreed to do) it is absolutely a violation of law to take fish with a seine or not within eighty rods of a fishway at any season of the year; and parties so violating the law are liable to be arrested and fined on the information of any citizen. Before closing, I desire to express my appreciation of the kindness which has been shown me since coming into your beautiful city and especially to your fish association, through their representatives, Messrs. Q. A. Glass and V. R. Bartlett. Persons desiring any information on this subject will be cheerfully answered by addressing me at Wamego, Kansas. S. FEE, Kansas State Fish Commissioner.
                                                    WHISKEY BUSINESS.
            The Returns From Last Month as Shown by the Probate Court Records.
                  Arkansas City Still Very Sick—Nearly Three Thousand Invalids.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, May 14, 1885.
                                         SOME ONE SHOULD BE NIPPED.

The first full month of business under the new prohibitory law ended on May first. Owing to the enormity of the task in figuring up these returns, THE COURIER is late in presenting them. When and as presented they furnish much food for reflection on the part of persons who care to observe the effects of whiskey on prohibition or prohibition on whiskey. The first bunch of statements tackled was that filled by S. E. Steinberger. It was a very extensive job. He filed five hundred and seventy-five statements, covering 407 pints of whiskey and 159 bottles of beer. Fifty gallons of whiskey in thirty days. This is a rattling good business. Many flourishing saloons would be proud of such a trade. The Chicago market report published in our news columns quotes whiskey as “firm at $1.15.” This is about the kind of whiskey Mr. Steinberger probably sells at never less than seventy-five cents per pint or six dollars a gallon. If it costs him two dollars a gallon, he has cleared at least two hundred dollars on his whiskey and twenty-five on his beer—a nice thing. The most probable thing is that his net profit on his beer and whiskey business was over three hundred dollars for the month. Steinberger this month as last heads the list. The sales at Arkansas City are as follows.
Steinberger, 575 sales, 407 pints whiskey, 150 bottles beer.
Grimes & Son, 438 sales, 172 pints whiskey, 120 bottles beer.
Butterfield, 226 sales, 156 pints whiskey, 8 bottles beer.
Fairclo, 206 sales, 100 pints whiskey, 76 bottles beer.
Mowry & S., 241 sales, 161 pints whiskey, no beer.
Kellogg & Co., 237 sales, 245 pints whiskey, no beer.
Total sales: 2,007. Total pints whiskey: 1,315. Total bottles beer: 581.
Thus it seems to take four barrels of whiskey and nearly six hundred bottles of beer to keep the city of Canals, boomers, and ineligible councilmen in good health for thirty days. The Winfield record for the same period is as follows.
Harter, 175 sales, 175 pints whiskey, no beer.
Williams, 182 sales, 171 pints whiskey, no beer.
Brown & Son, 197 sales, 136 pints whiskey, 215 bottles beer.
Glass, 108 sales, 138 pints whiskey, 24 bottles beer.
Total sales: 662. Total pints whiskey: 618. Total bottles beer: 239.
Mr. E. W. Woolsey, of Burden, files 226 statements for 191 pints of whiskey and 43 bottles of beer. This makes the record for the whole county stand: 2,755 sales, being 2,221 pints of whiskey and 863 bottles of beer. Of the whole, Arkansas City sells over half and double that of Winfield. There is something rotten down there. An examination of the statements will convince anyone of this. Steinberger has sold three times the whiskey of any Winfield druggist, and twice as much as his competitors. If he is doing a square business, then Winfield druggists must not be making a living. It is the duty of our officers to look after Mr. Steinberger without further delay. The most salutary thing that can be done is for Judge Gans to revoke his permit. Chop his head off smack smooth, and let County Attorney Asp wrestle with him afterwards.

Winfield Courier, Thursday, June 11, 1885.

Cowley County is recovering her health—or some of her druggists are getting very bad. The batch of statements returned by the druggists of the county for the month of May show a decrease in sales that means something. From the earnest protests from some quarters against THE COURIER publishing this “legitimate” business, it would seem that caution, that better part of valor, had been punching them in the ribs. But it is rumored, as an explanation to the decrease in sales, that certain druggists are dispensing the ardent without requiring statements or prescriptions, or failing to file them when they are obtained. This matter will be thoroughly investigated, and Judge Gans has uttered his determination to chop off the head of every druggist of whom he has evidence of such proceedings, and County Attorney Asp will attend to the remains. S. F. Steinberger, the April lion, came up with a gentler batch. The first of May he filed 575 statements, covering 407 pints of whiskey and 150 bottles of beer. This month he files only 372 statements, covering 209 pints of whiskey, 11 pints of alcohol, and 10 pints of wine. He has sensibly retired from the beer business, as have most of the other druggists. The medicine business of April, as published by THE COURIER stood as follows.

E. W. Woolsey, of Burden, was the only suburban druggist with a permit in April and filed 220 statements for 191 pints of whiskey and 43 bottles of beer. Several permits were granted in May. The May medical record stands.
Thus it will be seen that, while Arkansas City is still very sick, she shows some evidences of improvement—possibly owing to the decampment of the boomers and soldiers, who breed great gobs of miasma. Steinberger must look to his laurels, or his “rep” will be gone. Grimes & Son down him this time in the aggregate, showing a blasted monopoly on the beer business. Nearly two barrels of “rot gut” isn’t so bad for A. C. It ought to either kill or cure her invalids pretty soon. Winfield shows a small decrease from April. Compared to Arkansas City, Winfield is a perfect heaven of healthfulness. Our interior department appears to be about status quo.

Winfield Courier, Thursday, August 20, 1885.

A. T. Spotswood and Q. A. Glass are home from a novel three days’ fishing expedition. They took Quincy’s skiff and went down the Walnut, loaded with fishing tackle and expectation—and recreative determination. The first night they hauled up at Mr. Hunt’s, near Odessa schoolhouse, with a good string of fish. The next night was spent at Magnolia farm. They brought back no fish, having loaned them all out, but they were weighted down with the realization of the best and most novel recreation they ever had.

Thirty new names were handed in for membership. The Club meet next Monday evening to make final arrangements for the hunt. This Club’s annual hunt have occasioned for years more genuine recreation and fun than anything ever inaugurated in the sporting line. But game is not as plentiful as yore, making the boys scramble to run up a big score. They always wind up with a big banquet at the Brettun.
                                              OUR FESTIVE SPORTSMEN.
                                                 A Day Amid Shot and Shell.

Winfield Courier, Thursday, November 26, 1885.

The annual hunt of the Winfield Sportsmen’s Club, yesterday, was all in a conglomerate mass on the floor of the Brettun House office last evening, where President Harter and Secretary Glass conducted the count of the terrible slaughter and gave the individual scores. It was a tired crowd of hunters, many of them looking very sad eyed. The unlucky ones swore on a stack of powder that Cowley County is just about gameless—some of them didn’t see a cotton tail all day; yes, some of them didn’t see anything, which is verified by the nonentity of their score; but hardly by the appearance of their ammunition, which seems to whisper, “wasted on the desert air.” But an honest consultation of hunters was unanimous in the verdict that they never did so much traveling for so little game. The game appeared to have been notified of its impending fate and crawled in its hole. Capt. Huffman’s division laid it over Capt. Hunt’s division by a good majority. The losing side sets up the banquet at the Brettun tonight, when a big time is anticipated. James McLain, as last year, bobbed up serenely with the champion score and raked in the gold medal. Dr. Riley, with a score of 20, raked in the tin medal.

                                           THE SPORTSMEN’S BANQUET.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, November 26, 1885.
Thursday night was the occasion of the annual banquet of the Winfield Sportsmen’s Club. The annual hunt occurred the day before, the victors and defeated had received their scores, and now was another meeting, to eat, drink (water), and be merry; the “greenies,” or unfortunates, telling how they walked and walked, and fired and fired, and came out with only a few cotton-tails; and the victors were to explain how they managed it in getting so much salt on the tails of their game. The banquet, of course, was spread in the large dining hall of the Brettun, “set up” by the losing division, under Captain Hunt. Messrs. Harter & Hill did themselves proud in the preparation of the banquet, a magnificent array of about everything obtainable in the culinary art, with waiters most attentive. At nine o’clock the feast began, partaken of by the following.
Victors: P. A. Huffman, captain; Jas. McLain, J. N. Harter, Fred Whiting, K. McClung, Chas. Holmes, F. Kessinger, John Eaton, J. R. Handy, Q. A. Glass, Dr. J. G. Evans, Dr. Emerson, Dr. Riley, J. B. Garvin, T. J. Harris, L. M. Williams.
Defeated and had to set ’em up: J. S. Hunt, captain; Jas. Vance, F. Clark, Jap Cochran, H. D. Gans, J. B. Nipp, J. Denning, Geo. Jennings, M. L. Devore, Geo. Headrick, A. H. Doane, Geo. McIntire, G. L. Rinker, J. Barnthouse, Hop Shivvers, D. McCutcheon.
Judge Soward, an old member of the club, Ed. G. Gray, the scribe and a few others, were admitted to the feastorial court as guests.

The feast over, Judge Gans, in a happy speech characteristic of the Judge, presented James McLain, whose score of 1755 made him the champion “sport” of the club, with the gold medal, a beautiful solid shield, engraved: “Presented to James McLain by the Winfield Sportsmen’s Club, for the highest game score, in 1885.” Jim was all “broke up,” as he should be, and asked John A. Eaton to the rescue for a response. John is always equal to any occasion and set the crowd in a roar with his unique remarks. Then came the presentation of the tin medal to Dr. Riley, for his lowest score of 20. Judge Soward’s wit bubbled out in a speech very witty and sparkling, full of happy hits. The Doctor’s response was very appropriate. Lively toasts on the “pot-shot,” the “professional shot,” and various subjects were dissected by Huffman, Vance, Emerson, Nipp, and others. It was a very happy occasion throughout, one to be long remembered.

A wise father never trifles with his family’s health, nor buys patent medicines that are publishing testimonials of cures he knows nothing of, but deals with reliable druggists who know which medicine has in reality cured. The undersigned druggists of Winfield have sold Primley’s Speedy Cough Cure for two years, and can truthfully say: That it has never failed to give relief in the most obstinate and stubborn cases of coughs and colds. Consumptives will please ask for special instructions, and if it does not help you, it will cost you nothing. Every bottle warranted. Price 50 cents and $1. For sale by the following druggists: J. N. Harter, Quincy A. Glass, and L. M. Williams.

                                       OUR FLORIDA CORRESPONDENT.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, March 11, 1886.
Previous to leaving for Key West, I will give you a few of my ideas concerning this land of orange blooms, and perpetual summer. Two weeks ago, when I was yet in Orange County, on the banks of the lovely Lake Dora, every tree, large and small, gave positive proof that Jack Frost had betrayed his trust, and killed each leaf with his frosty breath. However, the amount of damage done to old groves is not nearly as great as was at first feared, when the mercury ran down to 150 above zero, with a northwester blowing a gale which chilled the very marrow in our bones. Like all calamities the horrors increase with repetition, and certain croakers delight to put the worse side out.
The South Florida railroad has been in operation for a year, and the Florida Southern completed nearly as far as Fort Ogden, must, as per contract, reach its destination on Charlotte Harbor by the first of May.
Yesterday Mr. Harden took us in his carriage to Eagle Lake, one of a chain of most lovely lakes in this great lake region. The soil surrounding it is a black sand, susceptible of producing all the same tropical fruits and many of the varieties grown north, and the berries to perfection.
On the southwest side of this lake I have bought six and a half acres and shall proceed at once to have it cleared of palmetto and pines, and as fast as practicable, build myself a home in this balmy climate. Not more than a mile off is Lake McCloud, where Quincy Glass and Will Hudson are landholders, in a fine location. The South Florida railroad runs midway between the two lakes, with a depot and town staked off. The idea that Florida is all swamp, is a myth, for I am confident that all this part of the state, and as far as I have noticed, is as healthy as anywhere, judging from the rosy cheeked people who have lived here for years.
After I return from the gulf, accompanied by Mrs. Harden and Maj. Mansfield, I will describe the people and their customs. H. P. MANSFIELD.

Charles H. Slack, formerly with Quincy Glass, is preparing to start a drug store in the north room of the old Commercial House. Charley is well known here to be trustworthy and a thorough drug man, and will no doubt command a good trade. He will make a specialty of prescriptions and fancy goods.
