GREATEST DAIRY FARM IN KANSAS.
ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS INVESTED
IR !.NDS. CATTLE AND MACHINERY.
Another of Sedgelck County's Great Enterprise's of
Which the World tat Heard but Utile.
Looming up In tbe midst of the wide,
smooth valley that stretches away in a di
viding ilaln, anil midway between the riv
en that bound It upon either ride, with Its
many red roof and walls gleaming iu the
sunlight like some newly-adorned cattle and
about which are marching and counter
marching unbroken columns, with here and
there a tingle mounted knight, advancing
towards or retreating from the shadows of
the dark line of timber that fringes and
marks the courses of the Little and Ureal
Arkansas rivers, seventeen miles north" est
of Wichita stands a cluster of largo and
small buildings. A nearer approach resolves
the cattle, its tower aud battlements and
other accessories into a huge factory, ele
vated water-tanks, ice houses, a dwelling
and numerous barns and out-houses, and
the moving columns into herds of cattle aud
their attendant keepers, all of the Anglo
American Lie Stock and Dairy Company.
We don't Luo w as we shall be able to give
the readers of the Eagle a clear Ides, of
this enterprise, which has within a few
months been started la our county, and o
quietly that sery few know any thing of its
character or magnitude, but we can tell
A two-hours drive last Friday, up along
the east bank of the Little river, crossing
at Hon. K. 1. Thompson's ford, and thence
along roads which for miles and miles were
hedged with com and freshly-plowed fields
In which the new wheat was makiug Us ap
pearance, we struck an open piece of prai
rie, or which at least was only fenced into
great pastures of hundreds of acre, und
across which, some four or live miles in the
level distance, we first caught sight of the
buildings uf the great dairy company. Our
carriage load was welcomed right heartily
by Mr.Kmest Dretes, the general manager,
and his accomplished wife. Sending the
ladles to the house wc commenced the work
n f systemstically noting every thing that
might interest our readers. The house,
factory and other buildings arc inclosed
with neat and substantial fences through
which graveled walks and drives run in ev
ery direction with borders of vines, beds of
flowers, and plots of gras, all ery nciv, of
course, but all nicely kept. Kverywhere
through the grounds and into every build
ing Water pipes are laid which are supplied
by an elevated tank that stands on a tower
and which is kept full of fresh water by a
steam force-pump located in the factory.
There are seven buildingslucludlngthe fac
tory, and all arc painted a dark lake orralii
eral red, cxcejit the residence. Thu waste
waters are carried olf in nciit little open
ditches laid in stone, but which will be ce
mented next year. No weeds are allowed
to grow anywhere, and no trees, except a
few eergrecns, within a half mile of the
liming taken a cursory view of our sur-roundiugi-,
Mr.Drevcs first conducted us to
the cattle lioue which adjoinstuccreamcry
on the west. This barn or stable is 40x170,
one vast room of oaken floors and of capac
ity sufficient to accommodate '-00 milker or
more. Jt is provided with fourteen sliding
outaide doors, through which the cow ou
ter. The room Is twenty feet to the roof A
system of shallow, circular-bottom troughs,
each thirty feet long, four feet wide aud
seven Inches deep, contain the feed. The
cows cit facing each other. Ihch auinul is
pruidcd with u halter chain which Is at
tached to an iron rod whereby, In one min
ute's time, one man can, from the oul-Me
of the barn, lelcaso the whole herd, while
another can, In the same time, open iery
door. To every trough and every animal
runs fiesh water supply-pipes, and to each
s) stem of troughs is a manure siuk and
drain, which can be washed out with fresh
water after which the whole is carted to the
lands. ach milker milks twenty-tivo cows
morning and evening. The milk Is carried
to a high platform to the weigher, who,
from his station can overlook every cow In
the barn, aud who weighs each cow's milk
and makes n record of It. The milker-, as
arc all the'nieu connected with the place,
arc f'crinaiiK who were brought up to this
business. A shaft runs through the entire
length of this building which HtUche to
machlucs that cut and griud all the fond
given to the milkers, Including cut hay.
Adjoining the cattle stable, but separated
Irnni It by nn nlr-llght partition, is the
creamery building which Is of two stories
and a window-glass dome, under which Is
situated the machinery conststlugofa cheese
mill and cheese press, a centrifugal separat
or, a Hlauchard churn, and a revolting
butter-worker. The engine-room and boiler-room
adjoin this again, but separated
from It by air aud dust-proof partitions and
doors. All the machinery ol thu creamery
room Is run by steam and one man oriees
the whole work. The room Is probably
thirty feet sqti re with a smooth flagging
stone floor, oirr which cool, clear water
urns. Adjoining the creamery room onouo
side Is a cheese room of clean-scoured
shelves and stone floor aud subdued light,
in which 273 cheese' eau bo put through the
curing process at ouo time. Another room
adjoins the main room called the cream
room with two immense tin vats inclosed in .
wood, also a stone floor. Still another room
to the west of the machinery room, also
with stone floor, Is the packing or tirklu
room. Hut the main room Is tho one or
chiefest Interest. Hero revolves a great
tln-llned tank that will hold llrty barrels of
milk, SO feet Iu circumference through
which travels a many toothed revolving crab
that cuts the curded milk into millions of
little pieces. Next comes the lllanchard
cburn, clean and sweet, bciug scalded ev
ery day, as arc all the tanks and vends
with its gTeat revolting paddle-wheels that
bring butter from sweet cream, lty the
way, Mr. Dreves informed us that the
churna used In the Kansas creameries were
no good, being too complicated and not sus
ceptible of proper cleansing which is abso
lutely necessary to street butter. We notice,

Of our long talk with Mr. Droves about
the different kinds of milk cows and bis ex
perience, wc have room for but little.. He
has been in America less than two years,
but talks Kngllsh very well, as does vMr.
Dreves. Krnest Dreves Is a man probably
any-live years of age. His whole life has
becu spent In the business In, which he is
now engaged, and the supcri'ntendency ot
twenty-eight farms belonging to "his duke"
who died last April, and for whom he en
tertained a real affection then and pleasant
memories cow. Ills son Is a cavalry officer
In the German army, and his daughters, by
his first wife, are all married to men of
the higher class in bis native country. In
our after-dinner talk he exhibited their pic
tures with no little pride. He Informed ui
that be hud tried every breed of milkers and
almost every conceivable cross of the fam
ous milkers of the world, but of the' Kng
llsh, Scotch, (lerinan, Holland and Swiss
breeds of milkers, none, nor the crosses of
any, would come up to the "black and
whites" aud Holstelns. Xcxt to them are
the Jerseys, Guernseys, Aldcrneys aud Ayr
shires, but In quantity of cheese and but
ter they, on an average, fell short from two
to three thousand pounds of milk annually.
His whole herd of black and whites and
Holstclns he said would average upwards
of 10,000 pounds of milk per annum. As an
earnest of his success and standing as a
breeder of milkers, after a delightful din
ner he showed us upwards of 200 prizes aud
awards taken by htm in the cattle shows of
Europe. He has Iu his private office at his
residence upwards of thirty silver prizes.
The most of these consist of a solid silver
corrugated base, a smooth sliver colnmu
surmounted by a Holstelu cow. On the
smooth columns are engraved th name and
age of the cow or bull and the year of the
award and name of the society. He has
three wall brackets tilled with these valua
ble and coitly mementos of bis. success as a
breeder. Two of these are very tine, being
large silver flagons on bases of porphyry,
and two are bulls on metallic or bronze
bases, ornamented with medalions. He has
also separate oil paintings of three of his
famous cows and one bull hanging oil the
wall of his room. One cow, a "black aud
white," took four successitc premiums, as
a one, two, three and four-year-old. An
other animal wc must honor with a notice
and that Is a dog which it would pay any
lover of the canine to take the trip just to
see. All of our readers have heard aud
read of Prince Hismarck's Franz, an im
mense blue mastiff that follows the old
chancellor everywhere. This dog's sire Is
a brother of Hismarck's Franz. He is only
fourteen months old, a pup, but weighs 110
pounds in very thin flesh. He it simply im
mense aud looks like he might be a cross
between the father of a mule and a Hcngal
tigress. Wo would rather. meet, the ".Old
Scratch" himself of a dark night than this
great ponderous blue mastiff.
Hut our notes have gone as far as they can
possibly Interest, aud wc will close tho ob
servations of the day's ramblo by stating
that the Anglo-American Live Stock and
Dairy Company is another of Sedgwick
county's big things, that the Jntcstmcnt is
now valued at 100,000 and that withlnwo
years Mr. Dreves fays it will be worth 200,
00, aud that it will pay a good dividend on
that capital. Tho company consists of five
men: C. II. Schmidt, the general foreign
agent of the Santa Fe Company, president;
11. Warkenteti, vice president; dipt. It.i M.
