Vol. 1, No. 39. By Ben H. Keyser, editor. Published every Saturday morning at Junction City, Riley Co., K.T.
Prospectus....This is the most Western town of any importance in the Territory, being three miles west of Fort Riley, and located immediately at the junction of the Republican and Smoky Hill forks of the Kaw River; it naturally commands the trade of the settlers upon the rich and beautiful valleys that spread towards the west and south from the banks of these streams.

H. Keyser, editor Junction Sentinel.
