The Weekly Kansas Chief, Births, Deaths, Marriages and other News Items and Current Events, April 1886 - December 1887. NOTE FROM THE COMPILERS: You will find, as we did in this weekly paper, stories of adventure in serial form and very good illustrations in serial form, which we mentioned. About mid-year 1887, the editor began printing histories of Civil War battles, complete with the pictures of the generals and officers involved, and detailed maps taking up lots of space. These were left out due to their length. We hope to compile these in a separate book. Another new feature is a list of new books and their authors, some novels and others ot edcuational value. The presidential campaign is warming up to 1888, and the general public is fed up with President Cleveland. Many settled farmers were selling out their land and livestock with full intent to moving to California to partake of the milk and honey. More than a few of the younger generation were getting married and leaving for one of the remaining terriories in order "to grow up with the country."
