Boni.iNOTON JUNCTION , Mo. , March
2 , From Clarinda wo follow the val
ley of the Nodawny into Missouri ,
southward , passing a half dozen sta
tions , to Burlington Junction , the
crossing of.tho Villisca branch * of the
"Q " and the Wabash , a town of per
haps 1,200 inhabitants , and situated
on n projecting point of the acccnd
bottoms , or first table land , ton miles
from the Iowa atato line , about twice
that diitanco cast of the Missouri
river , and about85 miloa from Omaha.
Aa wo follow the river from the low ,
line , the valley widens , until at thi
point it seems to 'linvo almost lost it
identity , as the Gonosco does below
the city of Rochester , N. Y. , and th
great variety of grasses , the oven sur
face , deep , narrow cuts , washed ou
by the little streams , and the style :
of building , fencing , and farming o
the eastern sottlora who have locatoi
hero , call to mind , promptly , th
scenes in the farming settlomonte
along the shores of the great lakes
and relieved us from , surprise when
told that this is called "The Ohio ,
or "Tho Ohio settlement. " The Chi
cagu , Burlington & Quinoy railroai
haa probably done more to encourage
courage and build up the towns along
its line than almost any othc
road. Hero , at the junction , th
company purchased a largo tract eland
land as soon as the road was located ;
and proceeded to lay out a town , and
have faithfully stood by it over since
and much of the growth and.many o
its advantages are duo to the liberality
of the officers of that company.
The Wabash branch to Clarind
starts from the main line of that road
nearly a mile east of this place , when
a hotel and a half dozen station build
ings form the "Rosoborry Junction ,
which is apt to mislead the stranco :
who expects to find a village and post
The two roads from Clarinda run
side by side most of the way and sop
nrato as they near the main line , bu
it is understood that arrangement
have been made to make the curve
westward and be neighborly and so
join interests and use one depot for
the three roads , a great convenience
to the people of the town and the
traveling public. To this end Mr. 0.
R Doe , so many years the obliging
and respected agent of the "Q , " 'has
packed up his Roods and started for
Ohariton to take charge of another
station , while a compromise agent fills
his place. Wo passed Bradyvillo half
way from Clarinda , and noticed a fine
mill seemingly doing a good business ,
and the half dozen stores , two hotels ,
and clean school houses and churches ,
indicated a business thrift among the
farmers , and an enterprise and success
among the 300 burgers.
Maryville , fourteen miles to the
southeast , a town 6f 4OCO , , is the
county snat of Nodaway county , and
is the queen city of this corner of the'
To the northwest three miles , is
Dawsonville , on the Wabash , a village
of 100 , with a large now steam eleva
tor , , and "piles of corn , " while five
miles , further is Elmo , with its 200 liv
ing souls , a dozen stores and trading
houses , elevator , lumber yard , plenty
of wood , and struggling to got a new
label put on to its postoffice , which at
present is Ebony. The oak stumps
al > ng those hill sides , and the new
buildings goingup constantly remind us
of thosmoller hills about Washington in
war times , where the timber had boon
cut away to clear the ground in front
of the forts , or to got Tire wood , leav
ing the stumps nearly covered by the
young sprouts that como up about the
The enterprising firm of Colvin &
Murphy do a large business in lum
her and farm implements , and read
TUB BEE as do many others in this
thriving young town. Mr. Oolvin
states that ho has sold nearly a dozen
Clowe within the past week , and this
idicates enterprise and an early
spring so far. Several other young ,
or new , business houses have quite
recently hung out their signs hero ,
indicating that the place wilfsoonout
grow its present clothes as it has its
name. .By the politeness' Mr. J.
B. Ohrisingcr , of the Junction , who
is ag ont for the railroad lands , sells
musical instruments , is postmaster ,
and IB a motive power in a half Juzen
other kinds of business , we took a
ride withihim five miles to the north
west to the growing city of Olearmont ,
a town of two hundred inhabitants
and two depots , seven stores , two
churches , a graded school , two hotels ,
blacksmith shops , moat market , liv
ery stablelumber yard , broom factory ,
a beautiful masoniq l\all \ , a brick yard
just hatched , and a "big gun club , "
or big club of shootists , who brag on
their "best twelvo" and their captain
A. M. Scott. The enterprising firm
of Craig & Smith havq a good stock of
KenorafmorchandiBo in ono of the best
buildings in this section and also an
other store of hardware , and oh I their
bees ! the whole yard was full of the
hives and a beautiful circular building
in the centro looked as though it was
a house built for the "queen" to live
in. Wo wore informed that the boos
uro as much ot a success hero as any
where. Hero wo find plenty of "worm
fence , " or rail fence , and the blackest
kind of black soil , and Huch apples ,
and small fruit , cattle , hogs and fine
lior os , and the old fashionable largo
barn , that looks strangely enough to
us , who have boon tying our horses
to a wagon end called it "putting
them in the barn , " because in oun
childhood days wo suppossd horses

this ancient people ot a young man

lus. With iU depots on each side il
is like old Coririth built between twe
* ei\ports , and noted for a wonderful
fountain in the top gof the rugged
hill , while hero the fountain has medi
cinal properties which the Corinthian
could not boast of. Mr. Samuel
Corkon , a mile south of town , hru i <
medical spring , famed for its curative
properties , and J. W. _ Anderson liaa
found the same mineral water in a
well ncnr the Merchants hotel. The
scirntifio exports and the hundreds of
invalids who have como hero for as
sistance have thoroughly tested the
healing benefits offered by mother
earth. Both of these gentlemen are
fitting up accommodations much
larger ana moro ontonsivo than before
used , and expect to see full houses
this coming season , and as there are
qnito a number of hotels and board
ing houses , there will bo room for a
The fire fiend destroyed throe or

for protection against another such
calamity. With the streets in good
condition and sidewalks almost every
where , the few private lamps used to
light the streets , make it compare in
this respect -with many other young
The Catholic church has the only
church building in town , and the
Christian church is holding services at
present in an upper room over Ware's
bank , where a revival has been in pro
gress for some timo.
There are many fine brick blocks in
the business part of the city and the
residences are of a neat and substan
tial kindHv mo of the bettor class cost
ing three or four thousand dollars ,
while the neat fencing around the
dwellings , the flowers , trees and fruits
everywhere show evidences of thrift
and enterprise and that the proprietors
have evidently determined to stay and
"grow up" with the place
Burlington Junction is pro-ami-
nontly a "hotel town. " The City
hotel , near the station , is a good place
for the traveler and a homo
for the stranger , but the "commercial
man , " who ! knows' all the hotels
from "Chicago to 'Frisco , " is completely
plotoly non plussod when Jio sits
down to dinner at the Merchants'
hotel. The house was badly damaged
by fire early in the winter , but since
its reopening , a month ago , its old
popularity haa returned sevenfold.
Certainly there are few tables in our
larger cities that are sot so gorgeously
and ofler such a bill of faro , or where
your wanta are attended to more
promptly. A handsome park is being
tilted up , joining the yard , and before
many years the reputation of the
house and the mineral spring near by
will have made this place famous , it
nothing else does.

on a beautiful elevation across the

The authorities have secured ground
lor a large public park , and the coin

A saw-mill twfo or three miles from
town is furnishing lumber in limited
quantities , made of the native oak ,

Mr. J. T. Anderson , the genial proprietor
priotor of the large livery stable on
Lho main street , is a native of the
itato , was ono of the first to invest
icro , and is one of the prosperous and
mccessful business men , doing a largo
auainess in handling cattle and horses
ind real estate , and has the finest
iiouso in the city.
Goo. H. Hotalling & Co. are the
