LETTER FROM KANSAS.
We'are . permitled lo copy
t lie lollowing letter from James
Miller, liirmerSy ol llii county,
to a Iriend. - Ed ! '
URBANA KANS. May 15, 1874.
Agreeable wilh jny promise
I eliall atiempt a description
oL,.iuia eouniry as1iti presents
itself to me.. After a residence
here (or two years 1 feel that I
have learned something of Ihe
country and of the people who
inhabit it. Shortly alter my
advent in this country I took
up my abode in this thriving
little town of Urbana, situated
within three miles of the gen
graphical center of Ibis (Neo
sho) county, and on the line of
ihe Missouri, Kansas & Texas
Railroad, about forty-five miles
Irom the Missouri line and
about forty miles from the In
dian Terriiory, and about two
hundred and li'ty miles from
the northern boundary ol Texas.
Within lour miles of this town
is the Neosho River, ihe most
e
important stream in ihe coun
ly. This river enters the coun
ly near the north-west oorner
and runs diagonally through
the county and passes out near
the Bouth-eabt corner of the
county, being a distance of
about lorty miles irom the
point of entrance to the point
ot exit. There is some timber
on this stream the average
width of the timber - belt is
about one mile, this Is usually
scrubby, seldom yielding over
two saw logs per tree. The
principal timber is walnut, oak,
cottonwood, hickory, back
berry and pecan. There are
many soiall streams which
nerve to supply the country
ganerally with good stock wa
ter. There are but lew good
springs in this portion of the
State. The toil louiid here on
the river bottoms is in part
very good, though there are
portions that are very inferior
in quality, known here as
"gumbo.' The foil on those
bottoms js a black sandy loam,
lortued by the decomposition
ol vegetable ruatter which ao
counts for ihe depth of the soil-
The land nearest the banks of
the river , is el vated above
that which -is near the .first
blufl or bench, consequently
the laud near the- river suffers
but lilllfl irom overflow. The
soil on those smaller streams la

are many .fine farms on Elk
Creek which' runs within less
than a mile of this place. The
most that can be said of the up
land prairie is that it is good
for pasture, though it can be
improved by cultivation "and
fertilizing. I will next attempt
a description of the towns situ
ated in this county. First in
importance Is Osage Mission.
lhi place was established
about twenty tour years ago by
a Catholio priest, and was for
merly known as the Catholio
Mission. It is at present the
county seat of this coonty,con
taining a population of .two
-thousand inhabitants The next
is Chanuie. situated eight miles
above here at-tbe Junction o(
the L. L. G. H "It "with the M.
K. (fe V.i iThis town
was laid put (ess than four years
ago and now contains a popu
lation of I welvn hundred. .The.
next in .'Importance is Thaver
situated' on the' line ot the K
li.'0, l. K. six milea irom this
place;, BesidJs those already
mentioned there are 'several
smaller . towns in the county,
among which is Galesburg, Erie
and Urbana, all towns of no
mean' importance. There are
at present (our printing offices'
in the county; eaoh publishing
' "county paper. And "now,
permit ino, for a short lime, to'
dwell, on a parual description
of the people whu inhabit this
county.,. ' Germany, " France.
England, Ireland, Sweden, and
in fact every; known sect and
naliou is represented' liere,-a;
also e've'rj Siute in the Union,
and .to giv an ijtocurate de
scription, of their : habits' and
customs would bufflVihe pen of
a. Thackeray. As a general
rule they cultivate no habi's of
inddstry, depending ratheron,
iheir sagacity and chicanery
lor success iu business. A an
jorily ol (he business men are
from that clus who, haviiip
met with niisforiunes in the
East, have come west to better
iheir condition.
The uiHjuriiy oi (he people
here come Irom Ohio and Indi
ana, and those who come now
with the view of buying a fool,
will not be likely to invest
their money. A regards soci
ety, it is not what it should be,
though the people are gener
all v hospitable. As for religion
and Christianity, it is a thing
much needed though little
sought for. The temperance
movement And the currency
bill, I presume have both mis
carried, as we have not yet felt
the effects ol either. I suppose
thev hive both been vetoed.
With reference to legal trans
actions in this btata there is a
lack of similarity to those of
Ohio. Within fifteen miles ot
thia place there have been
twenty-one murders committed
and ot this number the court
has failed to convict a single
individual, Two ol Ihe murder
ers have been executed by
"Judge Lynch,' and two others
shot by a mob. Five others
were hung tor committing what
I term a' a rape" on the per
sons of some women of ''ill
shape." None of' ihe Bender
crew have been arrested in
in this stale, though. the old
gentleman, I suppose, was ar
rested in Ulan, at least a man
supposed to be taim, was arrest
ed and is now in Custody lu To
peka, and if this prove to be
Bender and is not convicted by
J udge Guodwin,"Judge Lynch"
will iuterpoae and be very sure
lo'convict him and execute him
as well. 1 was summoned as a
juror, a lew days ago, on a case
where two hundred ilieu had
participated in hanging an in
dividual for murdering his tain
er-iu-law. One of tbe two
hundred was brought before
the court on a charge of mur
der, but tie jury tailed to agree
Consequently ihe jury were dii

son,
: With, reference to ; the pro
ductions, crops, fc,t of this
part of th4 countrv I will give
ybu ' my 1 own ; experience in
farming here, t cat say that
land yeilds well here, as it is
not uncommon to gather seven
five , bushels nf cornj from a
single acre.', The ground is
easily prepared, Ihe crop eros
rspidlv, and is eas;ly t cultivat
ed. Wheat, oats, rye,4potatoes,
melons, pumpkin,? &o., all
yield well. Barleyflnx, -cot
ton, and castor bains have
been grown here to a certain
extent and with a degree ot
success. Fruits of (all kinds
are- cultivated here and the
prospect fora 'epleildid fruit
country is-fitttpring,' as is the
peach - crop .tor (hip year. As
for qat tie there are a variety of
breeds. - There- is a greater
nunber Te:xa, cattle' than
any;-flhfrfthnujfh 'there are a
great min.v Cfierofiee"- Oatlla.
These are small rough horned
cattle, seldom weighing more
than 1,000 pounds, but easily
fatted. There is a big trafic in
cattle hero as it is not unii'finl
for one man to own 15,000
head and further west where
the country is sparsely settled
men own from twenty to thir
ly-five thousand head in a sin
gle herd. The mnjority of the
horses kept here are Texas and
Cherokee ponies, of the dark
est black to the snow white,
or an color, some are spotted
as leopards. They can endure
more hardships than any
American horse, hut are only
adapted to the paddle und light
dralt. They never eat more
than five ears ot corn at a
feed, and are alwavs ready for
duty. .1 wish I could send you
a pair of these ponies. They
make most -elegant buegy
teams, they never get tired
driving. They are easily
matched and are cheap livery
stock. This is a great place
for stylish livery rigs. These
ponies and grade cattle' are
sometimes sold as low as fifteen
dollars from that to forty-five
dollars apiece. As for sheep
and hogs, they are not raied
here very successfully as ye';
hogs do not thrive here on the
prairie, the sun affects them
seriously, but they do very well
when kept in the timber.
Bheep live here very welt, but
are often troubled with the
scab, . foot rot never, affects
them here.
It may interest yon to know
something of the wild game of
this country. Bufalo have de
serted thi portion of the coun
try, but are to be found yet in
great herds in the western part
ol the 8' ate; detr are occa
sional found yet as also wild
turkeys, Wolves are numer
ous as they everwas here.
there are here wlat are called
prairie dog cities. Those cities
are said to be inhabited by tbe
prairie dogs, owj and rattle
snakes. There ee two varie
lies of rabbits hre, the one

eve is the proper appellation

very closely and are much.
arger than the common rab
bit.
We have some insects here
as well as other wild animals.
It ts supposed that there is
somewhere in this country a
mount similar to which Noah's
ark was launched, though more
elevated where it is supposed
that those insects found safety
during tbe flood, as the- scrip
ture gives noacount ot any
sucjjn insects ever being ad-
mired into the ark, and there
is no name lor thein by which
they may be called. There is
oue gentlemen, however, that
is pretty well known to most
Kansas farmers. They call him
chintz bug." They usually
have1 good appetites have
been known to devour an en
tire wheat field in the short
space of twenty four hours.
These insects are al present
preying upon the wheat, oats,
corn and rye, and the result is
dreaded by the farmers. There
is no mineral here except coal,
and that in Vinton county,
would be regarded as almost
a nuisance. The veins are sel
dom thicker than ten inches
though many bands are em
ployed in some of the mines
and succeed in producing con
siderable coal. So with this
ends my history ol Kansas.

on page 122, the following:

was a pretentious tasting ol

their hearts would have pre

a little way off, there was a
