The Missouri Pacific Railway has named four stations on that line after as many players of the Brown Stocking Club, all the towns being in Kansas. “Foutz” is a town of about 200 people, and is said to be strung out for about half a mile—being long and thin. “Latham” is situated on top of a high hill, and is rather a windy place. “Comiskey” is a point where a great many steers and mules are shipped from, and it is said that some of the steers are terrible kickers. “Bushong” is the oldest and prettiest place of the four. Within its limits there are situated two churches, two schools several country stores and the usual doctor and dentist. The town proper is situated in a beautiful valley, and on its outskirts runs a small stream which finds it way from the mountains in the distance. The Sporting Life November 3, 1886 [N.B.
