Leoti, the county seat of Wichita county, is centrally located and is on the Missouri Pacific R. R. It has 2 banks, a flour mill, a weekly newspaper (the Standard), stages tri-weekly to Lakin, Carwood and St. Theresa, telegraph and express offices, and an international money order postoffice. It is an incorporated city of the third class and the population in 1910 was 288. It was settled in 1885 and was formerly called Bonosa. Five years later it had a population of 341. Then came a depression which was common to all western Kansas, and the population fell to 151 in 1900. Since then it has recovered from the hard times and is again in a thrifty condition as shown by the increase in population and by the number of business houses. (See Wichita County.)
