The Secretary of the State Board
of Agriculture o"f Kansas, states that
Kansas for the year 1SS3 was but

the average loss for the United

same year, the showing is verv
flattering in favor of Kansas. He
states further that most of the cattle
in western Kansas were almost
entirely without shelter and had as
feed but little besides buffalo grass
throughout the entire year; and the
largest per cent, of loss has hereto
fore resulted from lack of shelter
and from insufficient food.
Caldwell Journal 17th. A pool
of all the cattle men holding be
tween the Cimarron and Canadian
river, in Oklahoma, was formed
Tuesday. The pool is composed of
seven outfits, and will contain,
when stocked up to the limit, 50
000 cattle under its control. A
board of seven-directors was elect
ed, and on August 1st a full set of
officers consisting of president,
treasurer, secretary and pool boss
will be elected by the directors.
The ranchmen turn all their stock
into the pool in his own brands
and then put the pool brand on
in addition thereto. The pool pays
all expenses by assessment pro
rata with the number of cattle held
by each member. To a 1,000 cat
tle one man and eight horses are
turned in. The annual pay roll
and expense bill on the pool" plan
will be cut down over 75 per cent.,
as under the pool plan twenty-five
men and 150 horses will do the
work that it now takes 75 men and
50f horses to accomplish. The
name is to be Cimarron and Cana
dian pool. As the brand has not
been decided upon yet, we are un
able to give it.
som every dcscribable character of
impurities. Did you ever in child
hood days dig a minature well by
some gravel fringed brook or upon
a sand bar? AVhen you reached or
passed below the level of the wa
ter in the stream you got water in
your well. Whether you dug one
foot nr two or ten you got the same
result in water which you knew to
be a part of that of "the stream.
If the sand or gravel was course
the filling was rapid; if fino and
compact it was correspondingly
slow. (We ar! to-day big children
digging big wells but the same
principles and results arc identi
cal.) This was a case of diffusion.
Liquids sink perpendicularly more
rapidly than they diffuse, until
they reach a surface of impermea
blc'stone or dense clay when the
case is reversed. The inclination
oi the stone determines their fu
ture course. The surface ofthc
earth may slope in a given direc
tion and that of the underlying
solid stone in the opposite. When
water has once entered the earth
its direction is not to be
judged by any surface inclina
tion, riltny accumulations arc
usuallv adjudged safe because they
are upon an inclination of surface
below the well and they arc sui
posed to travel from the well.
This is true as long as the liquids
do not enter the earth, but when a
vault is made, or they arc conduct
ed by any means into the earth it
may be turned back into the well
by some solid substratum whose
inclination is in the opposite di
rection. From the foregoing it
follows that if we dig a deep hole
in the earth we drain from the
shallow ones until their level is
reached. In soil like this in Vini-
ta when a well is sunk it makes a
drain from every direction as a
cupping glass would do. It turns
the course of all ths water to that
common center, detracting a por
tion from every filthy source with
in reasonable distance, if a well
be sunk within forty feet of an un
clean vault a large portion of the
latter is dratrn off tor drinhinnmir-
votes. If the distance be a hun
dred feet we get less, and what we
do get is better filtered and by
reason of time and distance is
chemically improved, ilie amount
and quality being alwavs an in
verse ratio to the distance and den
sity of soil. There is a notion in
the world that gravel soil is a bet
ter purifier of water than compact
soil. If so, why not strain milk
through a wicker basket? Char
coal has an intrinsic virtue of ab
sorbing impurities, but gravels
have none. They may take up
something possibly by accrition,
but the common idea is essentially
a fallacy. Transfusion through
clean dense soils is very slow as
compared with porous gravel soil,
hence the greater time for chemic
al changes, and particulate mattor
is more perfectly "strained out."
Organic impurities arc discovera
ble at long distances in gravel un
derlain with compact clay, and
they may enter crevices in rocks
and be transported in exceptional
cases in abundance long distances,
even beneath hills from one side
to the other.
Water may be cool and sparkling
and yet abound in impurities. An
epidemic of cholera sporadic with
a mortality of 40 per day ocairred
in the city of Nashville, Term., in
the year 1S65, resulting from the
polution ot the public reservoir,
and yet nobody perceived any al
teration in the taste of the water.
Tho health authorities analyzed
and condemned the water. The
consequence was complete subsid
ence of the disease within a few
days. Filtering of liquids through
the earth relieves them of thoir
odor and may change favorably
their taste,butdoes not correspond
ingly relieve them of their disease
germs. Again it might be disgust
ingly filthy and produce no dis
ease. Not every unclean thing is
capable of engendering disease, yet
we apprehend that few people care
to cat trash because it neither pois
ons nor kills. There is nothing
belter established in the causation
of disease than that a very com
mon means of communicating ty
phoid fever is through the dairy
supply. Our medical journals teem
with instances of communication
of this and other affections in that
way, and yet no perceptible change
in the taste of the milk. Upon the .
other hand not everything that'
tastes and smells bad is poisonous '
by anv means. These senses are
entirely unreliable. Limberger
cheese is not poisonous but the
most delicious dish of mushrooms
are often intensely no. However
it may be stated in general that
filthy alleys, streets and privies
most seriously endanger the health
of a town by polutingthc wells and
the air which we breathe.

We know that living matter in all
its forms may lose its chemico
vital status and pass to other forms,
being often transposed at a single
step from the vegetable to the ani
mal kingdom and vice versa. All
life and growth is but transforma
tion a rcapplicatiou. The food we
cat forms the brain and blood and
bone, and yet of that very forma
tion it is written "earth to earth
and dust to dust." Wc have bor
rowed from earth a body, from
heaven a mind; with a cycle of
changes it returns. These tilings
remind us that above us. beneath
us and in us all is activity; rest
is nowhere. Mutation is written
upon everything, and that machine
preserves" its integrity longest
which having least friction is most
in harmony with surrounding
forces. That life is longest and
beet which is most in harmony
with natural law. The dashing
rain, the lightnings flash and tho
moving of the atmosphere are so
many natural devices for the cleans
ing of this mundane habitation of
maa; and yet it would seem that
