passage of cattle from Trxit through the
Indian Territory is not tciled notwith
standing the recent ordei irtm the interior

about sixty miles south of St. Louis, was
celebrated yesterday by the citizens of the
place and surrounding counties, in bth

speeches were made by other gentlemen.
There was also a military display of fire

A dispatch from Now Iberia, Louisiana,
says that charbon is etiil travailing to an
alarming extent among the stock and cattle
in that parish on Broad prairie west of that
place. The decomposition of the carcasses
are so numerous as to vitiate the at
mosphere. Steps are being taken to have
the carcasses disposed of by burning. For
this purpose large quantities of oil and tar
have been sent to the infected district. The
malady has carried off herd3 of horses,
mules and. ewes. It is reported that sev
eral persons have been attacked witu the
disease. In one case it resulted fatally.
Similar advices are received from Cypde
Bayou, Techire and on the prairies.
The cholera remains inert in Spain. The
largest number of cases occur in Saragosa.
The late storm3 appear to have an adverse
efiect upon the epidemic Many bodies are
unhurried. The m ijority of the inhabitants
have fled and the remainder are incapable
of attending to the sick. The complete re
turns of the progress of the diseasegives the
number of oases at 2,388, dea'hs 879. Re
turns from all but five of the infected dis
tricts place the numb r of new cases in one
day at 2,532, deaths 919. The contagion
has spread to the Provinces of Lagono,
where several cases have already occurred.
Troops stationed in the city of Saragosa,
where the disease is now raging, have been
supplied with guitars to keep up their
spirits. The music of these instruments
can be heard day and night.
Bab cock & Andrews of Syracuse, the
proprietors of the big backet shop, probab
ly the moat extensive in the state , tailed for
$500,000 or more. The n m's principal
officers was in Rochester New York and
they had about eeventy-five branch offices
distributed throughout the good sized in
terior towns of this state, New England and
Canada. The manager of the head offices
here says they lost $75,000 on the May
wheat bulge; (650,000 on the oil rise three
wee ks ago and $35,000 in oil and $75,000 in
Jersey Central. They figure their assets at
a nominal rate mostly in office furniture
and they haye $100,000 in customers' notes
which are almost valuless. The bucket
shop players all over tha state are badly
hit. There is no list accessible of losses by
outside parties, but it is claimed the amount
will reach several hundred thousand dol
lars. Reports received at the general office
of the national cattle and horse growers
association at St. Louis, from the various
cattle raising regions in the west, are gen
erally of the most favorable character.
ViCo-president Prior, of Colorado, writes
that the ranges are in fine condition, and
the cattle fattening rapidly. General rains
have prevailed, and all cattlemen are jubi
lant over the prospects for a good year. A
great many native and wintered Texas cat
tle are leaving lor the northwest territories,
and a general movement of cattle is being
made in compliance with che law, and
without molestation. No fever has as yet
developed in any of the herds in this sec
tion. Vice President Milne of New Mexi
co, reports a healthy condition of the cattle
in that territory and that the crop will be
5 per cent, more than last year. Vice
President Harman, of Idaho, says that
while little rain has fallen lately the grass
is fine and the cattle doing splendidly.
There is no disease among them and the
cattlemen are very much encouraged by the
outlook for the present season. Large
numbers of stock catUe are beinsr shipped
from West Idaho and Nevada to Wyoming.
j Vice President Mitchell, of Nevada, reports
' a better condition of both the ranee and
SATURDAY, AUGUST 1,
cattle tnan for several years, and says
though the hay crop on the river bottoms
may.be lighter than usual the quality is
better and a greater number of cattlemen
will put up more hay for winter feeding
than ever before. All these gentlemen say
that the national cattle convention to be
held in St. Louis in November is looked
forward to with treat interest. and that the
attention will be largely increased over
that of last year.

The recent heavy rains have inter

in Phillips connty.
Potato bugs are doing considerable
damage in certain localities, and it is
feared will cut the crop short.
Despite flood, web worms and other
pests corn will make an extraordinary
crop in Wilson county this year.
Fredonia Citizen: The chinch bug has
had a hard row to hoe this season on ac
count of the excessive wet weather.
Coal oil diluted, one part coal oil and
seventy-four parts water, is a splendid
remedy for web worms, says the Cha
Fredonia Citizen: Those farmers who
have escaped overflow and web worms
say they will have more corn this season
than they raised last year.
A Kansas farmer says that he put a
stop to the heating of wheat by mixing
with each fifty bushels a bushel of salt,
and also kept weevels away.
Burlington Patriot: The corn fields in
this vicinity are makinga splendid show
ing; a good deal of it is four feet high.
The amount of damage done by the web
worms will not be as much as is gener
A man at Fort Scott has a curiosity at
his place in the shape of a grape vine,
which is filled with clusters of grapes
and blossoms too. The clusters are
about six inches long, with nice, round
grapes, and on the same side are blos
soms out in flower.
Iola Register: Farmers who have been
cutting prairie hay say that the crop is
nearly twice as heavy as it usually is.
Every available stalk of it should be cut.
It will go far toward supplying the
shortage of the corn crop. It is selling
in this market now for $4 a ton.
Medicine Lodge Cressett: A farmer
informs us that his second crop of alfalfa
is now ready for harvest. The first crop
was cut on the 31st day of May. His
only object in raising alfalfa in this
country is that it hurries a man to get
his first crop stacked before the second
crop is ready to cut.
Chanute Times: Our farmers have en
joyed good crops for some six or seven
years in succession, so that the psesent
shortage, by reason of high waters and
wet weather, should not be considered
as remarkable or unlooked lor. There
is no state that boasts of good crops for
more than four years in succession, and
then they are the result of constant ap
plications of Paris green and other pre
ventatives, used to drive away the ar
mies of insects that regularly appear to
prey upon one or more kinds or gram.
Kansas is certainly far less afflicted in
this line than any other state, and also
suffers far less from the floods or the
Oskaloosa Sickle: Out of over fifty acres
of flax put in by Mr. Ed. Snyder, some
25 or 26 acres is dead beyond recovery,
and Mr. S. thinks it was destroyed by
some insect, though he has been unable
to find any. The remainder of the field
is in Liost excellent condition. The whole
piece was in wheat, and in putting in the
flax half of the ground was plowed and
and on the other half the seed was
merely cultivated in; and the dead flax
is on the plowed portion, the good on the
cultivated ground. We hope the cause
of the trouble may be determined, as flax
has been considered proof against almost
any enemy heretofore.

of poor prospects for a big corn crop, a

five to seven dollars.
Leavenworth Times: A pet sheep is
one of the attractions in the courthouse.
It makes regular visits to all the offices
every day, and calls on the register of
deeds about three o'clock. It runs up

and takes no back talk from anybody.
The boys think a great deal of it.
Gaylord Herald: Messers, Scott &
Haskell have recently purchased and
added to their herd at this place two
thoroughbred Durham bulls, which are
probably the best animals of the kind
ever brought to Smith county, or we
might say, to this state. One is from
the famous heard of F. J. Barbee, of
Paris, Kentucky, and is registered in the
American herd book ns Airdiec of Gove

the English herd book for thirteen gen

animal, and one of the best of a
famous family. The other is registered
as Peabody 3d, and boasts equally as
good blood and ancient family as Airdie
of GoveHill. He was bred by T. B.
Hickman at Columbia, Missouri. These
animals are likely to become famous in
this part of the state, and lovers of fine
stock should visit the stock farm of
