A number of tegular army ofiicers
arc now in Washington protesting
ajrain't a farther reduction of the army
at has been propo-cd by foiiic thought
Ices and inexperienced persons. It is
souicthinjr of a new departure for army
olliccrs iu any wise to interfere with
legislative matters, but in this instance
wc arc confident the people of the en
tire wc-tcrn or frontier Mate will cn-dor-c
their action. Formerly politics
had but little to do with the army, but
now that the latter is sensibly affected
by the former, :iriny ofiicers are faiily
compellcd at limes to do more than
take cognizance of what if. pas'-inp in
the political world, by way of solf de
feu'c. At to the propriety of coHtinuiii";
the army at its present strength there
can be no doubt. All the troops that
can he spared are needed at the fron
tier postn to guard pettier trom the in
carcions by tlie indians. The Quaker
policv that has been experimented
with oflatu hr. failed to secure the
protection net tied, and shown that the
army is most to be relied upon. The
cozzening red devil-, of the mountains
and plain-, have neither love nor fear
for the Qurkci-i or their policy. (Jen.

adopted towards the iiidiaii-.

The 7th day of January, 1871, my-v-clf.
in company with live companions
Blurted for the pl.iius iu starch of
game. The firt night out we pitched
our tent on the north fork of the Xin
nocah. After a good night's sleep we
awoke at an early hour, and after
breakfast our tent wa-soonMnuk and
on the wagon aud soon was under way
with light hearts, plenn of grub and
bound we knew not where. Nothing
transpired that day wot thy of note
aud struck camp the following night
at what is known ar. Head's ranch. We
found that worthy in the midst of his
numeioit" insects scralchaing and
writhing in a terrible way. So seeing
the situation of allairs we did not con
sider it safe to Mop loo clos-o so we
look rell'nge at a safe distance where
weputinthe night without molesta
tion. On Ihe following morning at an
early hour we were moving on to the
Southwest where we had expected to
liud the butl'alo. At last night over
took ns once more and we struck camp
on Kim creek. The morning follow ing
was a cold dismal one. it -uoned and
Mowed at a terrible rate and wo were
obliged to p-.s the day there, s we
aititikcd our-elves as best wc could and
finally the day pai-ed oil and the night
approached at last, and that night was
a terrible one. one long to be remember
ed by many a poor creature upon the
plains with scant lood and clothing.
At la-1 dav dawned and with rather
less of spirit than tuual we aroc and
found the w ind blow ing steady and the
storm somewhat abated. We immedi
ately prepared for a start and was oon
under way, we reached Medicine Lodge
river in due time and camped for the
night, still no bulf-lo worthy of note
had been discovered. The morning
following was line, and we pulled out
for Mule creek. On arriving there aud
feeing no butl'alo we concluded to take
one team and light wagon and drive
out Southwest in search of them. We
drove all day and still saw none, we
camped that night upon a little stream
near the Cimeron. the following morn
ing we thought to take a ramble around
in search of game which wo failed to
discover after which we bent our steps
towards camp, on striking the creek a
little below camp aud following up to
ward camp until within a hundred
yards of camp when a sad scene met
our eye; ! There was the ruins of a
camp, plundered by the Indians, the
wagon burned to tubes, shirts, boots
and shoes, lut, vest etc. were upon the
ground, blood was visable in many
places the ground was btrcwu with
needle-gun caps showing that th'-re
had been a desperate resistance made
by the hunters. We searched for the
bodies or some clue to their names but
did not succeed in finding any. After
caininciiig the ruins and seeing nu
merous things that did not speak well
for our safety we headed for our old
camp on mule creek where wo arrived
that night then comnieuced the icarci
ty of grub for wc had been out longer
than wo had expected, aud as one of
our party expressed himself saying
-'that it was mighty hard to live on pan
cake straight and we were all of the
same opinion but could not help the
cause. The next monrn we etartcd
forborne, and after much trouble and '
hard drivingatid bad wcathrr we reach-'

Kdjtok Kacji.k: I'rcsumiiig that
partial delineation re-pecting the
social Mil-rounding- would not be out
of order; hence the following: The
past month has been one oi uuiutu
ruptcd bocial attttt&ciiieut. without it
glad to age. sex, high and low, rich and
poor, the silver headed ape. aud tliu
bloom of youth, all would join in 'iic
united and happy throng. The enter
tainments given wvru lirt a choice
baud of instrumental music well timed
with the light tipped toe and the heavy
bioad heel which would continue until
they would become weary and worn,
with eye-lids heavy ud red in the
dull January light. The rcene was
changed with the sudden sensation at
Jamesbiirg, the fourth grand rallying
of the so called fraternity of the 1. of
II., iu the way of al'a-neg-y-rtis a long
tablu extending from wall waited on
by gentlemen and ladies of exquisite
taste and lare culture, which present
ed a grotsijue appearance. All went
oil' iu harmony, owing to the great
good of the P. of II. For a time all
wan quiet until the evening ofthc2tth,
the shades of evening were drawing
near, iow distant tumbling could be
heard, approaching nearer and still
nearer anil the sounds were btill in
creasing uutill as it were the thunder
ing of the roaring billows. Upon a
nearer approach they were discovered
to be vehicles of almost all descrip
tions loaded with human forms going
at lightning speed with eyes penetrat
ing to the distant object and all con
verging to the same focus or combinat
iug point. llccoming alarmed we
wended our way to the concentrated
spot (the Attica school house) was en
vironed on every side with vehicle and
teams of every description leaving but
a narrow pass to the entrance or door.
Upon entering we were completely
taken by surprise at seeing so many
people comprising both bexes of all
ages and sizes, while the ear wa met
with a chit chat here and a laugh
laugh there, width here a squawk and
a it is no use, words will not portray-
to you any idea of the happiness mani
fested at such a gathering. While all
this merriment was rife on every
tongue. To the farther side of the
house was a long table extending from
one end of the house to the other wait
ed upon by ladies aud gentlemen ol the
vicinity, with cultivated tastes aud of
congenial endowments. It fairly gio.m-
cd under the georgeous luxuries and
the rich and rare dainties of Iruit-,
viands, trls, dessert, etc. Indeed the
whole catalogue of the culinary de
partment would scarce sullice giving
you any idea of iu ln.ignilicent graud
uic. Imagine to yourself a dense
crowd of people with strong gas.lrou.i
mieal propeiisaties awaiting to hear
the strong shrill voice of "forward
march to supper." Time glided away
at an unusual rapid rate. When the
cpic.it cans had all become satisfied,
order was again restored and an elab
arate address was delivered by one Mr.
Iiond, followed by toast--. One given
by Mr. Ly man, of Jamc-burg-, he said
he had long been puzzled to know' the
meaning of tiic word "!)ro," but now
he thought he knew. It means, said
he, big caters, as great men were said
to be big caters, he thoug'il that there
were surely great men present. After
which beautitul strains of music fell on
our cars, which was conducted by
your "Cow Skinner" correspondent ,
and was immediately followed with
installation of olliccrs in the order ofi
the P. of II.

Kditoh Kaiii.i:
I'oliuvill" till columns
of your paper are ever open to the dis
cussion ol every subject that is of in
terest to the farmers, and seeing that
the corn question is laid in the shade
, . .
tor the present at least, the question Ot
... . . i ... i .. i: i . .
cattle raising hav lllg been discussed to
some extent. While VCrr little has been
said concerning the raising ot sheep.
It is an evident fact that many of our
farmers are not so situated as to take
care of cattle while they are growing
their hedge fences, while if they could
get sheep they would be easily Jiered
through the summer, and easily cared
for during our short winters. Thou
sands of sheep could be kept in our
county, which would yield a large in
come. This would, of course, call for
a woolen factory at Wichita, where
the farmer could sell his wool for cash
or exchange it for cloth. Xow how
can this be accomplished? Many of
our farmers who could keep sheep have
not the means to go east and buy them.
Would it not be a good investment for
some of our moneyed men to go east
in the spring aud bring out a lew thou
sand, aud let them out to the farmers
on the shares; that is, let the farmer
take one or two hundred for one. two
or three years, demanding of him half
the wool and half the increase. I think
this would be a good investment for
both parties. Think of this. Under
stand that sheep can be bought at vcry
low prices in Illinois. W. C.

FOR IMMIGRANTS.
EL IF-SO.
The town of Et Paso is located on the east bank
of the gTeat Arkansas River, in the southeastern
part of Sedgwick county, Kaasas. It has many
advantages, among which are iu beautiful and
bealtby location, situated on a high, gently tlop-
inpr prairie, surrounded by one of the largest bod
ies of the mo: fertile land in tlie state, which is
all taken up by actual settlers, who arc energetic,
industrious and practical farmers. They are at
work in earnest, opening up their fanna and mak
ing thiinselves good, comfortable and permanent
homes.
ROCK BOTTOM.
There is a rock bottom in the river, extending
about three tmarters of a mile up and down the
stream. On the east bink the rocks are about fif
teen feet above low water mark, and on the West
bank about twelve feet below the surface of the
ground.
BRIDGE FACILITIES.
A good substantial bridge, two hundred and
seventy-Are feet long, spans the Arkansas Riv-r
at this place, thereby giving the farmers on the
west side ol the river access to the town at any
stage ot water and at all seasons or the rt ar. The
bridge rests on stone abutments on either bank,
and on two iron piers, which stand llrrcly on the
beil rock in the river It la naturally the beat
place on the river in this state for a railroad bridge
across iha great Arkans&s River.
RAILROADS.
Two railroads have already been surveyed to
this place; one from the northeast, via Eureka and
Augusta, crossing the river at this rock bottom,
(he other from the city of Wichita to Arkansas
City, which proved to be almost an air line, and a
very favorable route. No doubt, both roads will
soon be completed.
WATES PRIVILEGE.
There is- not the least doubt that here is the best
water privilege in the state of Kansas The great
Arkansas River, its source in the Rocky Moun
lains, is supplied with water in summer by the
melting snows in the mountains, by rain and Its
many tributaries in winter The water is alwav s
highest from spring until fall, yet It has nver
been known to overflow its banks at this pi:. it.
There is an abundance of water during Ihe w hole
year to ran all the machinery that can be placed
on the bank for several miles below.
FEASIBILITY OF A DAM.
The feasibility of a dam across the river U not
questioned, a solid rock bottom all the w ay across
to build upon, the width only two hundred and
seventy-live foet from shore to shore, a high bank
of clay and rock on the east side, and on the w t
side a bed of tongh clay covered with samt ex
tending for some ways up the river above the rock
bottom. This water priv ilege must and will short
ly be improved. Kl Paso will lie a manufacturing
town. The experiments last csason in rais'rg
cotton demonstrated that this soil and climxte are
adopted to cotton growing; then why not manu
facture it here where the corner stone and found
ation have betn naturally laid.
tiu: town.
The town is new, the buildings are subsM' !,
erected for permanent business houses an.l Loines
It contains one dry goods store, a drug store, tvro
grocery stores, one Hotel, a w.igon maker and
blacksmith shop, one shoe store, a meat market,
two feed stables, a good school house, and a num
ber of dwellings.
SCHOOL PRIVILEGES.
There is a good school from seven to nine months
each ycir. A Sabbath-school has been organized
and is now in a flourishing condition.
CHURCHES.
Two church organizations have been effected,
viz: the Methodist ami United Presbyterian, each
having regular servlers.
JUNCTION OF STAGES.
By recent arrangtments the Town Company has
suceeded in obtaining at this place a Junction of
the stages of the Southwi stern Stage Company. A
daily stage runs from here to Wichita, a tri-weekly
from here lo Fort sill, a tri-weekly to Welling
ton, a dally, via Winneld, to Arkansas City.
TIMBER.
The timber in this vicinitv consists of Cotton
wood, oak, ah, hickory, walnut, mulberry and
elm. Cord wood is delivered in town at four dol
lars wr cord.
RUS1NESS OPENINGS.
There is here a good opening for business men
of all kinds, mechanics of all trades ; honest, in
dustrious, temperate and energetic men are re
spectfully Invited
The policy of the town company heretofore has
been to donate lots to those who built houses on
them Now, for the Hrot time, they advertise lot
for sale
HOME SEEKERS.
Per-ons seeking homes or wishing to engage in
business of any kind, or desiring to locate in a
healthy, pleasant and prosperous new place,
among a good clasa of society, would do well to
piy this place a visit before settling elsewhere.
