ABILENE.  Hon. J. R. Burton, of Abilene, asserts that the published surmises that he is about to leave Kansas have only the slight foundation that he has made some investments in Colorado. He says that he expects to live, die, and be buried in Kansas; the two latter events to occur sometime in A.D. 1988, at which time the public places in Kansas will be closed to do honor to his burial day. – Topeka Commonwealth.
