This newspaper comes from the collections of the Kansas Historical Society and was digitized with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program. On March 2, 1871, the Saline County Journal made its publishing debut in Salina, Kansas. The seven-column, folio-format Journal was published every Thursday as the "Official Organ of Saline County" with a Republican affiliation. During its tenure, the Journal frequently reported on the arrival of the Texas cattle trade and railroads, and the effect that livestock and agriculture, particularly wheat farming, had on the Kansas economy. Even though the Journal experienced several editorial changes, founder Mason D. Sampson continued his lengthy proprietorship until he retired in June 1891. The last issue of the Journal appeared on March 9, 1893.
