Isabel

Isabel is a little village on the north line of the county, on the Mulvane extension of the Santa Fe, in Valley township.

It does not make much of a showing on the delinquent tax rolls, but it is quite a grain-shipping point for the thrifty and prosperous farmers living around it. It is located in a rich and beautiful plain, with nothing but comfortable farm houses, barns and orchards to break the view.

Those engaged in business in Isabel enjoy a good trade.
