J0LLANDWARD. newspaper files and pamphlets; and in addition to these, this and former reports show a collection of manuscripts picture statuary, relics and objects of historical illustration of every kind and description almost countless in number. The character of these materials is such as was contemplated in the organization of the society and such as the law directs the society to bring into its libraro and collections. They are chiefly the printed and and written records of the people of Kansas.

The history of the strug- gles and triumphs of the people of Kansas, from the earliest day to the present, have been and arc being more fully recorded by pen ar.d printing press than ever before was that of anv people; and our histori cal society is very fully gathering in and placing accessibly placing upon its shelves the record as thus being made up. The published statistics of the libraries of the country show that the library of the Kansas historical society is the largest historical library west of the Misissippi river, and the largest but one west of the Alleghany mountains. When it is considered that this library is not composed of evanescent books of the literature of the day, written and printed for ths amusement of the hour, but that it chiefly contains the original records of the facts in the history of our own pioneer people, 'of the first generation of the founders and builders of the state, it may be said that when we speak of its remarkable growth in the number of its volumes, we present a future of but slight consideration compar-ed ith that of the character of the volumes which it contains as origi-matcrials of history. The legislature should make ample appropriations to carry on this work. Mrs.

County School Signal, issued monthly at Bunker Mill by County Superintendent Bickerdyke is before us. It is neatly printed and well edited, and contains many use and practical suggestions for pupils, parents, and teachers, and is deserving of a good Dorrance Nuggett. For the year ending December 31, 18S8 the Brookville creamery took in 3,246,412 lbs. of milk, made 138,523 lbs. tf butter, and 22,591 lbs.

of cheese. The disbursements among the farmers for the year amounted to $30,710.64. The average price of milk was 94 cents per 100 pounds which would be about 30 cents a pound for butter if macle on the farm. Farmers beat that if you can. There is not a purer, better, or more helpful magazine published than "Woman's Wontt." It seeks to elevate the the character of periodical literature, and admits nothing of a harmful nature in its reading and advertising columns.

The entire field of home interests is ably overed its departments embracing Art, Literature, Poetry, Fancy work, Floriculture, Mother's Corner, Home Physician, Boys and Girls, Bright Babies, Cooking, Vegetable Garden, Poultry, and miscellaneous matter of the highest order. None of the prevailing trash of the present day. Every member of the family from the lit-ones to the white-crowned grand-parents will read it efgerly and derive benefit from its pages. Published by L. Mitchcl, Athens, Georgia, at only 50 cents a year, J.
