. Very 111 at Atchison, Kansas.
Colonel H. C. McMaken this morn
ing received word from Atchison,
Kas., that his brother Andrew, well
known here, was In a very critical
condition and that physicians had
abandoned hope for him. Mr, Mc
Maken had been ill with heart trou
ble whlvh developed into pneumonia
several days ago and last night he
was rapidly sinking. Owing to his
age which Is 78 years, he is unable
to rally from the effects of the at
tack and the end is momentarily e
pected. The many friends of Colonel
McMaken and his family will unlt
in the most sincere grief over the
report and it is to be hoped that It
is exaggerated and he may even yet
take a turn for the better. Colonel
McMaken will probably make a trip
down to see his brother this evening,
although he had not fully determined
upon that this morning.'
Attorney William Deles Dernier
Talks of Trip.
William Deles Dernier, the prom
inent Elmwood attorney, came to
the city today as told in another
place and proceeded to come storm
ing Into the Journal office full of
war and desolation. He was some
worked up over a little personal that
appeared in the Journal about two
week3 ago, shortly after his return
from Ness and Brown counties, Kan
sas. When he saw ye reporter he
assured him that he didn't .like the
wind which blew In Kansas and the
item was innocently printed Just as
l given. The fact is and he so wants
the public to understand, he struck
Kansas on one of the days when
the wind was blowing there Just as
it did here on the same day and he
had a disagreeable experience just as
our home folks did. He says that
so far as not liking the soil and the
prospects of the sunflower state is
concerned he certainly does like both.
He is especially of the idea that Ness
and Brown counties are mighty good
locations and that there Is every rea
son to believe a great deal of money
can be made by Judicious Investments
in these counties. He describes the
land as a rich, rolling prairie, fertile
as any land lying out of doors. At
one place he asked a man acquainted
with the country the distance to a
range of hills In the distance and
was told thirty-five miles which sub
sequent Investigation confirmed. Ev
ery foot of this land from where he
stood to where the hills loomed aloft
was carpeted with a dark, rich green
field of wheat. The yield which this
land promises to make this season
is something which is extraordinary.
Mr. DelcsDernier noted a handsome
feature of the landscape while there
consisting of stone fence posts. There
is a rocky formation in some of the
valleys of that land which can be
cut into fence posts and to which
wire is easily attached, making, an
almost Imperishable as well as very
handsome fence. Mr. DelesDernler
contemplates, returning to Kansas in
a few weeks when he expects to buy
some of this' land. j He found after
getting back ,here that' the same' wind
which made ' things uncomfortable'
there had been blowing here and it
was! Just as bad ana that 'was the
only kick he had. lje expects to also
move on west to near Pueblo, Col.,
while in the country and look Into
some land projects there. He states
that he is glad to be able to confirm
the good words for Ness and Browu
counties which Messrs. Patterson,
Moore and Wiles said through . the
Journal Beveral days since and he
is glad to add his enthusiasm to
their regarding it. Mr. Deles Der
iers's trip to that region a few weeks
ago was made in company with
Judge Travis who is also interested
In some land there and who is this
year satisfied that his land will again
yield heavy returns on the invest
ment as it has a fine wheat crop in
process of raising. Western Kansas
is said this year to be In far better
shape than the eastern part of the
state and there is more money to be
made there than in what has always
been looked on as the best part of
Ship Much Stock.
Cattle business from the flourish
ing city of Murray is on the boom.
Yesterday there were eight cars of
animals loaded ' at that point for
South Omaha. ' Charles Chrlswisser
loaded three cars,' Z. W. Shrader
loaded two cars,' Mr. philpot loaded
two cars and Jake' Hild had one car
for the market.' The gentlemen hope
for good prices today 'as they all
have, excellent . animals. . Messrs.
Chrlswisser and Shrader came up to
this city last evening and spent the
night here, Journeying oil to Omaha
this morning for the opening of the
market. Murray is one of the best ! hi446!
