NUCKOLLS COUNTY NEWS -- 1880

Superior, June 6---Superior is located on the north side of the Republican River in the south part of Nuckolls County, and but one mile above the Kansas line. It is very appropriately named, for all visitors pronounce it "the most beautiful townsite ever seen." The business part of the place is confined to one street, extending north and south. The town embraces 400 acres, of which not more than one half is yet built upon. The population is about 600, most all of whom are engaged in mercantile and mechanical pursuits, very, few farmers living in town. It was originally the property of an Omaha man, a foreman in the U.P. shops, and was purchased from him by Wm. LOUDEN, who is still a resident here.

Various additions have been at different times added, by the last named gentleman, and he is justly regarded as the father of the town.

Through the west border flows a fine stream from the north, and on it is located one of the finest mills in the state. The mill is owned and operated by GUTHRIE Bros., whose flour ranks among the first in the marts of both Kansas and Nebraska.

The toot of the iron horse has breathed new life into the place, and the same old rattle-to-bang of hammer and saw that greets the ear in all our western towns is the music of the progressive march here also. Among the finest structures nearing completion at the present time is the residence of Wm. LOUDEN, which will cost when completed nearly $3,000.

This is an old section of country, and has been settled nearly ten years. An abundance of cattle and hogs are ready for shipment. A. C. McCorkle, an extensive stockdealer shipped eighteen cars of stock yesterday to Chicago over the B. & N. road.

The lumber trade is an important item of business in the place, a large section of Kansas being tributary to the place in that line.

C. L. DAY, of the firm of DAY and FRENCH, superintends the Chicago lumber yard, from which and immense amount of lumber is being sold everday.

T. H. MATTERS, formerly in Clay county, is one of the rising attorneys of the place.

A. HUNTER, one of the leading men in the general merchandise trade, is an old Omaha man and a subscriber to THE BEE from its origin.

W. W. KENDALL, the leading druggist in the town, has resided here a little more than one year, and is well pleased with the prospects of this country.

The town is supplied with good hotel accommodations. The Superior House, kept by Sid ZIMMERMAN, enjoys the preference of the traveling public.

The town is full of strangers all the time and new-comers are settling all around. The number of pupils attending the grade schools has so much increased that additional building had to be rented for their use this spring.
