Keota Eagle
Before 23 April 1890 when it was reprinted in the Washington Press.

Keota Eagle--A number of young people from Washington were seen on our streets Sabbath, and succeeded in attracting considerale attention. Childen who do not know how to behave abroad, should be kept at home,especially on the Sabbath.

(The following articles are all from the Keota Eagle of 21 January 1898)

"A thousand thanks to the very many who have cashed up on their subscriptions. It puts new life into the publisher, and besides, it has enabled us to pay our coal and bill and rent promptly. Let others come and do likewise and the scribe maybe can afford a new $5 suit of clothes when the flowers shall bloom in the spring. Tra la la!"

"It will please the Eagle and all of is readers if each and every  one of our correspondents will send in a newsy letter every week regularly without fail. You have no idea how anxiously people look for your items and how pleased they are to find them. Help us to make the Eagle the best local paper in this section."

"Omer Singmaser went to Ottumwa Monday and purchased the finest colt he ever bought he says. Weighs a thousand as an eight months old and is clean and smooth. Omer brought him in Tuesday."

"The cob pipe factory in Washington is booming works fifteen men. It seems to have got the better of its contemporary, the cigar shop, for the latter factory has closed its doors. the cob pipe represents the best phase of the vice of smoking--if there is any "bes phase" to such a pernicious habit. The cob burns out before the pipe has a chance to become so strong that its stench will upset an ordinary stomach at a twelve pace and it is more economical than the 5 cent cigar. It never has a chance to become saturated with deadly nicotine and while it may not looks so aristocratic as a brier pipe or a meerschaum yet is is more sanitary and cleanly, and cleanliness is next to godliness, you know. All smokers ought to use cobs in the interests of society and economy."

""Were glad to make the acquaintance of Joseph Wells Wednesday Sunday School Missionary for Keokuk and Mahaska counties. He has just closed a series of meetings at Talleyrand held for ten days in the Baptist church. He reports several conversions as a result of his efforts, and he has left a promising field for some able minister to take hold of."
