Congressman J. P. Boyd arrived in
Genoa Thursday morning of last week
and nMBsinad until the train went west
in the afternoon. During his stay in
Genoa Mr. Boyd, visited the Indian
school and wm abown through the diff
erent departments by Superintendent
Davie, and promised that he .would do
all he could to further toe interests 'of
the school before the Indian department
in Washington. Several old soldiers
who desired to ham pension matters
adjusted, called on Mr. Boyd, and their
oases will receive his prompt attention.
Mr. Boyd ia the first congressman ever
elected in the third district to call on
his constituents for the purpose of learn
ing their desires and offering them ss
sietance in his official capacity. This
wm the plan adopted by Henry Clay and
other congressmen of his day, but for
some reason the statesmen of the pres
ent day are not in the habit of dropping
around once a year, previous to their
departure for the national capitoL to
ascertain what good they can accomp
