It is perhaps ncedlesa to attempt any

have already been dilated upon to such
an extent by tho correspondents of
the different newspapers of the west

country immediately Mil rounding it, we
ahall havo accomplish d all that we start
ed out to do. The town .of Cowles was
named for Mr. W. 0. Cowles, who for
years, an i up to the time of his death
in Omaha in 1876 was General Freight
agent of the B. &, M. in Nebraska. The
name of Cowles if pronounced as though
spelled, c-o-a 1-s. The town was sur
veyed and platted by A. B. Smith, town
