Rapid Increase of Sheep la the State.
June 1st was an important day
among the - wool growers and sheep
breeders of Kansas, it being the date of
the semi-annual meeting of the "Kansas
Wool Growers' and Sheep Breeders As
sociation." This city was . chosen as
the place for this meeting at the annual
session at Topeka last winter, and by
Wednesday morning a large number of
members of the association and strangers
were on hand to attend the deliberations
of the body. Among those not mem
bers who were called here by the meeting,
was Maj. R. M. Spivey, of the Santa Fe
railroad; Mr.. Henry T. Brown, of the
firm of Walter Brown & Co, of Boston;
Mr. Clark, of Boston ; Mr. Bogman, of
Boston; Mr.Saycn, of Chicago, ail wool
buyers, and Mr. G. Y. Johnson, of Tope

Cormick, of the Kansas City Price Cur
rent; H. A. Cone, of the Topeka Capital

DourUss, Butler county ; Hon. J. S. Cod
ding, of' Pnttawattoruie county,' presi
dent of the association ; J. B. Bartholo
mew, of Topeka, secretary of the assocl
atin, and others whose names will ap
pear in the list below. -
Two o'clock, the hour fixed for the as
sembling of the Association, found the
court house well filled' with those who
had come from far and near to participate
In the proceedings. It was as fine a look-
ing assembly of men as wo have seen in
Kansas a good representative body' o
the intelligent and stalwart producers in
one of the leading industries of the state,
. ;The meeting was called to order ' by
the president, J. S. Codding. In calling
to order the president made a short and
vigorous address. He alluded to the
work of the previous year, and the ob
stacles which had been overcome since
the last meeting and believed the lessons
learned from the experience of the cold
winter, and from the dust storms of last
summer and fall, would, in the end,
properly applied, be of benefit
the wool " growing interests ot the fu
ture Tlie losses had Worked a hard
ship to many, but the members had un
doubtedly learned - many an important
lesson as to the care of sheep which
would be useful in the years to pme
He spoke of the good condition of Kan
sas wool this year, and said the wool
growers can now proudly point to the
product of their flocks, with a feeling
that it will, tor the llrst time, compare
favorably with any to be had in the mar
kets. 'Passing to other subjects 'he
urged that some steps be taken by this
association to secure recognition in the
National . Wool . Growers' Association
and pointed out the importance of mak
ing an exhibition of the premium fleeces
ot Kansas in the National exhibition,
He also urged the importance of the or
ganization of. local county or district
auxiliary associations.1 He urged har
mony in the meetings, and devotion to
the interests which the body represents.
On motion the reading of the minutes
of the last meeting was dispensed with
It was announced the secretary, J. B. Bar
tholomew, was ready to enroll the names
of any who wished to become members of
the association. ,
' On motion of Senator Wilkic the
action of the . officers of this as
sociation in . accepting the proposition
of the Topeka State . Fair Association
was sanctioned by a unanimous . vote,
The State Fair Association hail offered
$1,000 to be used as premiumns in the
sheep department, to do all the adver
tising for the display by the wool grow
era, and to give them control of commit
tees and all other matters pertaining to
the exhibition by the Wool Grower1
On motion of Mr. Booth, of
Leavenworth, the president of the as
sociation was authorized to appoint the
awarding committees for the sheep de
partment from the members of this' as
A call was made by some member for
reports from those present of the condi
tion of flock?, and the wool clips and
for such other information as would be
useful to the members. -
on motion ot Major spivey, a recess
of ten minutes was . taken for the
purpose of giving an . opportunity to
join the association, the secretary be-'
ing first called upon to read the consti
tution and by-laws.
On being called to order, Mr. Shclton
offered the following resolution, which
was adopted :
Revolted That we heartily commend
the "Western National Fair Association
for the success accomplished by them at
uismaric urove on the occasion ot their
first annual fair held in September. 1881).
aad we recommend the wool growers of
Kansas to avail themselves, by their 1 ex
hibits and attendance, of the opportuni
ty its future exhibitions may give for ex
tending the wool growing interests of
Kansas. . . .. .
1 A discussion took place as to the feed
ing and care of sheep. This subject took
a wide range, and it was impossible to
hear what was said, or to learu the
names of. all who participated. 31 r.
Mathews led the discussion. Mr. Wads
worth had kept a flock of sheep mostly
on sorghum until the first of March.
Had fed no corn till that, date. His,
tosses were very light., He had fed a
good deal of millet, and lost no sheep
by feeding it. The president fed millet
one time each day, and does not believe
millet used judiciously with other feed
will hurt sheep. Mr. Mathews thought
sorghum, which can always be raised
abundantly, was the best : feed for sheep.
Senator Wilkie fed plenty of hay and
millet and some corn, having the fust
two so his sheep could get at it at their
pleasure.' ' Also gave them plenty of
water. Mr. Witfield said his experi
ence in feeding millet had not been very
satisfactory. " Mr. Colvin fed millet and
rice corn. Had taken pains in feeding
millet. Some considered It a good and
others a poor feed for sheep. , Where it
did good it was mixed with other articles
of food. He said sorghum was good
for sheep and he would use it principal
ly next winter. He thought it in
jurious to feed . too much i of
any one article of food. A He liked
rice corn, buffalo grass, and corn.
: The general impression we gleaned
from the discussion was that millet is
rather a risky article of food for sheep,
but might be used stintingly and care
fully; that sorghum1 Is to become the
staple article in the wen of Kansas
sheep, and that like their owners, they
like a variety, and thrive if they have it
. Mr. Sneidiker, of Hartford, saw . Mr.
Brown, of Boston, In the room and
wanted to know something about the
markets, the manner of sorting wool 'etc
Mr. Brown ' gave such information as
was satisfactory, and Mr. Bayers, of
Chicago, and other gentlemen were
called out. The discussion took rather
a wide range, and was undoubtedly
beneficial to the members of the associa
tion. The president made some vigorous re
marks in regard to the not very frequent
practice, he was glad to say, of dishonest
producers in loading their fleeces with
aad and dirt to make,, them weigh

One gi-ntlemen was asked in vegard to
the dinvrence in the quality of Kansas
wool between this year and last. He
thought this year's growth was far better
than that of last year. He aaid the
shrinkage last year was about 83 per
cent This year it would not he over CO
to 65 per cent
The president moved that a commit
tee of five be appointed to draft a code
of rules, and regulations to be recom
mended for use in organizing auxiliary
wool. giowers' societies, and to provide
for public shearings. The committee
was appointed as follows: G. II.
Wadsworth, A. B. - Matthews, A. H.
Thompson, F. Winfield and IL
On' motion the association adjourned
until 7:30 p. m. '
The committee appointed to consider
the matter of rules and regulations for
auxiliary associations, . reported that
owing to a lack of time they could not
report such rules and regulations, and
that it was impossible to suggest a plan
for such organizations now.
Mr. Richarson and Mr. Shelton, advo
cated the importance of auxiliary asso
One member wanted a plan by which
the state, should be divided iuto four
districts, in each of which an auxiliary
association should be organized, to be
known as . the- northeastern, southeast
ern, northwestern and southwestern as
sociations. Thought this would be suf
ficient, but the susevslion did not meet
The .; . , president again urged
the importance and usefulness of
auxiliary associations. : His ' remarks
were, as usual, solid," practical and
were well received, , , .
On motion of Mr. Shelton, the com
rnittee was continued in charge of the
duty assigned them, with the request to
invest ignte the matter farther and report
such plau as they thought best for locul
associations at the January meeting.
x On motion, the president and secreta
ry were added to the committee.
. On motion tr J. E. White, the thanks
of the Association were extended to the
officers of tlie A., T. & S. F. and the K,
P. railroads for their liberal reduction
of passenger rates to members living
along their respective roads.
:A communication with .the coin pi i
mcnts of the ladies of the Presbyterian
church of Emporia was received, and
extending an invitation to the iuembcrs
to attend the strawberry festival then be
ing given by, the ladies, and.sthe, invita-
tiou was accepted by many of the mem.
bers. .. . r '
Mr. C. E- DiehL of Suawneo offered
the following resolution which was
adopted: , ; , i . i ,
Ec4oIiM(i. That .inasmuch as this asso
ciation has accepted the management of
the sheep department at the coming
state fair to be held at Topeka. and
the fair has offered a liberal amount for
premiums, that we, as members of this
association, will take such interest in
the exhibition in our department as to
make it a complete success. '
A vote of thanks was next given to the
officers in charge of the court rooiu for
its free use for holding the convention.
A gentleman from Pealiody wanted to
hear further as to the manner of feed
ing sheep, and the best food to be used
Another gentleman ' wantert informa
tiou of the diseases of sheep and partic
ularly as to the manner of trcatin
"scab." A rather lengthy ' discussion
followed, as to the treatment of this
disease. The president said that by
vigorous setting down on those who per
mitted scab in their flocks in Pottawat-
tomie county, the local association had
met with snch'success as to leave only
one flock in ' that' county that had tli
disease. A short time ago nearly" all of
them were afflicted with the 'disease
ne reocommended a vigorous enforce
ment of the law against parties who
permitted disease toxist in their flocks,
and thought tlifs' association ought to
agree to stand by- any person who will
prosecute the owner of diseased flocks.
After some further discussion Mr.
Matthews offered the following resolu.
tion which was adopted :
Resolved, That this association will
stand by any person who will prosecute
those driving diseased sheep into the
state in violation of law.
,. This was modified so as to confine its
operation to the , part of the state lying
cast of a line drawn north and south
through Lamed.' ' ' '
The tobacco cure for scab was gener
ally endorsed as effective, although two
or three members said it had failed to
cure their sheep. Wc" believe all but
one admitted that where it had failed it
had' not been properly prepared or ad-
ministered. The fault of the failure
was theirs. "We believe one gentleman
though, insisted that it was not always
effective. - '
. The inquiry was made as to how ion
a time should elapse after dipping sheep
into the tobacco cure before they could
be turned with healthy sheep. Six day;
to three weeks was given by various
parties, but the president insisted on
the latter time with - another week
thrown in "just for lack." '
There was but one dissenting vote on
the proposition that the tobacco dip was
a sure cure for scab. - 1
.The president offered the followin
resolution which was adopted :
Rcolced. That in the opinion of the
members of this Association there is no
need of the existence of scab in sheep
over tour weeks alter the tact ot its ex-
istence is discovered.
The following was voted by ,the Asso
ciation as the proper remedy for tlio cure
of scab : Tobacco, 50 lta. ; sulphur, C to
10 lbs. ; water, 100 gallons; to be applied
at a hoat of 120 degrees.
It was voted as the sense of the Asso
ciation that "all dogs, found away from
home unaccompanied by . their owners
should lie dealt with according to the
law of sheep men, which we take
mean that they should be "shot on the
spot" , . .
Mr. McConnick, of the Kansas Cily
Price Current, urged the -importance of
a program for the next meeting, which
should be followed in the discussions.
r The "scab" question was again "haul
ed in" by some gentleman, and occu
pied some time, but a3 it was getting to
wards train time, and- all were tired an
adjournment was had with sonic closin
remarks hy the president - "'
: STATISTICAL.' !
The following hfct of members in at
tendance, .with the number of-sheep
owned by each, toellier with the 'clip,
estimated in cases Where the sheep had
not been shorue, is as full .and correct
as wc could get it, after persistent effort
to 'get the names and figures. -Many
went away in the afternoon, before the
list was commenced, while others did
not seem to deem it of any importance
to give their names and the; statistics
sought. The following - is . correct
and., reliable' as far as it
goes, and will give some idea of the rap
idly growing sheep interest in Kansas
We believe the members of the conven
tion represented considerably over 100,.
000 head of sheep, the wool clip of wh ich
will be nearly 1,000,000 pounds
