OF

BARTON COUNTY, KANSAS

DEDICATED

To the pioneers of this section of Kansas to whom too much credit cannot be given for undergoing the hardships and privations that were necessary in reclaiming that part of the Great American Desert now known as Barton County, Kansas, one of the richest and most prosperous sections of the country where the homes of the residents are surrounded by all that makes life worth living, where the best of educational and religious advantages are found and where the people are happy, progressive and contented.
