120 YEARS AGO h From May 1, 1886 Star During the present season, it is estimated that not less than $50,000 worth of trees have been sold and set out in this county. In less than five years we shall be abundantly blessed with tim- bet. School districts No. I 1, 34 and 35 are preparing to vote bonds to erect school houses. District No. 43 completed its organization the 20th day of April. Several other districts are in process of organization. Comanche County now has eight newspapers, viz: Coldwater 2, Protection, 2; Neseatunga, 2; Avilla 1 and Evansville 1. There is no reason why our county should not be well advertised. There is said to be a vigilance committee organized in the northern part of this county for the purpose of mutual protection against petty thieves who are in the habit of stealing from differ- ent houses and farms. This com- mittee is determined to stop these thieves if they have to use a rope. We have received vol. 1. No. 1. of tile "Western Advocate," published at Protection in this county. L.P. Kelnper. It is a live paper and comes out with the true Democratic ring: We liope the citizens of Protection give it a rousing support. Robt. H. Davis has taken care of the "'Comanche Chief" at Reader. Robert is a good news- paperman, and we expect to see him publish a spicy paper as long as he is a the helm. Charley Beymer intends to open up his ice cream parlor as soon as the weather will permit. ~> 110 YEARS AGO
