Arkansas City Republican, June 7, 1884.

Noble & Willard will commence the issue of a second paper at Geuda Springs shortly. They will also have a real estate agency in connection with the newspaper.

W. J. Willard of Geuda Springs, called upon us yesterday, and informed us that the first issue of the Geuda Springs News, will appear next Wednesday. Mr. Willard will be editor and proprietor. This will give Geuda two papers and will help to enliven the town.

Winfield Courier, July 10, 1884.

The first issue of the Geuda Springs News made its advent upon the journalistic sea last Thursday. It starts off with a healthy appearance, and will be a benefit to Geuda, though, with two papers in that place, we hardly think the editor will become a bloated bond-holder very soon.

The little three year old daughter of Mr. S. M. Curry, living southwest of Geuda, was bitten by a rattle snake on the Fourth. She is rapidly recovering under the treatment of Dr. Holland. Geuda Springs News.

We were informed that S. H. Foss had all his hay in the Territory burned last week.

Geuda Springs News.

Well, it was Mr. Foss’ hay, and if he wanted it burned, whose affair is it?

Arkansas City Traveler, October 15, 1884.

The Geuda Springs News is looming up and making it interesting for the Herald. The “survival of the fittest” theory is a good one to apply to newspapers.

Arkansas City Republican, November 15, 1884.

DIED. A sad accident happened Saturday forenoon at the residence of Mr. J. S. Alter, about two miles northwest of here. His little ten year old daughter while at work at his cane mill had her dress caught in the cogs, drawing her leg into them, crushing it in a shocking manner. Drs. Long and Holland were summoned and decided that amputation was necessary. Dr. Woodside, of Arkansas City, was telephoned for and came over immediately and performed the operation. All was of no avail, however, and the unfortunate little one passed away Thursday. Geuda Springs News.

Arkansas City Traveler, December 3, 1884.

Walter J. Willard, of the Geuda Springs News, called upon us Monday.


Arkansas City Traveler, January 14, 1885.


An attempt was made one night last week to break into J. H. Noble’s drug store.

Last week while Mr. J. Diemer was returning from Arkansas City, one of his best horses dropped dead.

Mr. F. A. Brady commenced his series of union meetings at Smith’s hall Tuesday evening with a good attendance, although the weather was very bad. Mr. Brady is an excellent speaker and an earnest Christian worker, and everybody should come out and hear him and get the benefit of his labors here among us.
