JEKKESS, president of the Leoti Town Company, was born in Canada, but is of New Hampshire stock. Hi ancestry dates back to 1635, when a colony of English puritans, fifteen years subsequent to the landing of the Pilgrim Fathers, settled at Rye-Beach, N. H. The subject of our sketch is a worthy descendant of that sturdy and resolute band of pioneers, and he has inherited the qualities which have obtained for the pilgrim fathers of our country an imperishable name. Mr. Jenness removed with hi parents from Canada to DeKalb county, Illinois, in 1844, and was educated in the common schools of that county. He came westward, oh! to Kansas in 1857 and settled in Franklin county when the "noble savage" were numerous in the eastern counties of this state. He was elected sheriff of Franklin county , in November. 1SG5, and held that perilous and responsible office together with office of mayor of Ottawa until 1809, and was again chosen by the people as sheriff from 1872 until 1875. In 1 S70 he was elected to represent the 27th district in the Kansas legislature for two years, and in 1878 removed to Cherokee county, where he engaged in the coal business and operated a colliery in that county until his removal to Wiehita county in December, 1885. Soon after his arrival in Leoti he was unanimously elected president of the Town Company, and he has, by his untiring energy largely contributed to the successful outcome of Leoti as county seat. Mr. Jenness is a member of the Wichita County Land and Loan Co. THE LATE E. F. HARDESTY. We can not omit from the biographical reminiscences the name of the !ate E. F. Hardesty, brother of Gue C. Hardesty, our energetic townsman. E .F. Hardesty came to Wichita county in the summer of 1SS5 on a prospecting tour to seek a location for the firm of Hardesty & Pelham, of Wellington. He had traveled over the southorn tierof counties, but finally decided to identify himself with Looti and its then proposed town company. He became a member of the company, was appointed secretary, and looked forward to an eventful career incidental to the settlement of a new county, when t!ie preat harvester, Death, gathered him into the "bourne from whence no traveler returns." Being in delicate health, he had returned to Wellington to sojourn through the winter, and in the spring of 1880 he manifested considerable anxiety to be in Leoti early in the season. The journey to Leoti exposed him to the inclemency of our spring storms, and con tracting a severe cold, his delicate physique succumbed in a few Jars after his arrival in Leoti. His grief-stricken mother was summoned just in time to receive his last wifhes ard to close his eyes. The news of Mr. Hardesty's death was a severe shock to the wide circle of friends in Wellington and an irreparable loss to his conferees and the people of Leoti. who looked up to him as one of the ablest cham pions of Leoti's claims for countv seat nonors. j-j. r. Hardesty was the first martyr to the cause of Le oti, and his remains were interred in the cemeterv two and a half miles from the city.

Odd Fellows' Anniversary at Leoti. Last Tuesday evening, April 20, being the sixtyeighth anniversary of Odd Fellowship in America, the members of Leoti Lodge, No. 2U7, I. O. O. F., with their families and friends assembled in their hall at 7:30 o'clock p. M., where they celebrated the occasion with an appropriate entertainment. At eight o'clock the guests in the well filled hall were called to order bv the N-ble Grand R. A. Ramey. The exercises were opened with music instrumental and vocal followed with a prayer by the chaplain, after which Past Grand C. II. Coan of Pittsburg Lodge No. 150, formerly of Columbus, now of Leoti, treated the memliers of the Lodge and their friends to a very interesting review of the history of Odd Fellowship in the United States, and also gave a brief outline of the work, aims and objects for which the Order is laboring. At the close of Mr. Coan's speech an intermission' of twenty minutes was gifen for introduction and a general extension of acquaintance, after which the house was again called to order, when J. I. Whistler was called on for aeech. His remarks although extemporaneous, were highly interesting and held the attention of the audience. He was compelled to speak from what he knew of the ov.tsido work ings of the Order. At the conclusion of the speaking a feast of goid things, which had been prepared by the ladies, was brought in; to sav the least this part of the program was a credit to the ladies and a source of satisfaction to all who partook of it. At eleven o'clock the entertainment was brought to a close with appropriate lodge music. The members of the Order regret very mucli not being a die on account of the size of their hall to have made their invitations more general but hope to do letter next time. W. H.T.
