He directs the flags of the offices be displayed at half mast on the reception of the circular and that the usual symbols of mourning be assumed for a period of thirty days. The officials ol the war department are of the opinion that trouble amine from the passage of cattle from Trxit through the Indian Territory is not tciled notwith standing the recent ordei irtm the interior department. When the htrt'fe reach the borders of Kansas and Colorado, renewed trouble is apprehended, because of the prospective opposition of the cattlemen who may fear thai. Texas cattle aie di seased. The 15CHh anniversary of the little town of 8t. Genevive, on the Mississippi rivar about sixty miles south of St. Louis, was celebrated yesterday by the citizens of the place and surrounding counties, in bth Missouri and Illinois. A historical ad drees was delivered by General Rosier and speeches were made by other gentlemen. There was also a military display of fire works and a grand ball. A. private letter from Kinney county, Texas, states that hostile bands of xndians are taking advantage of the withdrawal of the cavalry from this district and are at large on the frontier. The writer says that two Mexicans at the mouth of Pinto Creek, eight at Las Vegas, and about twen ty at other points have been killed in cross ing the Rio Grande, near the border, by Inaians,and that a band of raidiDg warrior have been in Kinney, near Brothers' ranch. So far as learned no loss of life has attended the Indian raid in Texas. A box was shipped on the express from Black River FallB, Wisconsin, to Chicago. The messenger became suspicious of the contents and telegraphed to tlie authorities. On 'the arrival of the train at ttiia place the box was opened and inside was found a man armed with a 33 calibre revolver, a billy, razor, botU8 of chloroform and a bunch of cord. He refused to give his name. The box was shipped to Sydney D Barn hard. Chicago. Two more persons supposed to be onfe'terete'' were arrtsted and all three are in j lil. It is supposed they had planned to 10b the mail and exprecs car. Nothing is known regarding the identity of the men. A dispatch from Now Iberia, Louisiana, says that charbon is etiil travailing to an alarming extent among the stock and cattle in that parish on Broad prairie west of that place. The decomposition of the carcasses are so numerous as to vitiate the at mosphere. Steps are being taken to have the carcasses disposed of by burning. For this purpose large quantities of oil and tar have been sent to the infected district. The malady has carried off herd3 of horses, mules and. ewes. It is reported that sev eral persons have been attacked witu the disease. In one case it resulted fatally. Similar advices are received from Cypde Bayou, Techire and on the prairies. The cholera remains inert in Spain. The largest number of cases occur in Saragosa. The late storm3 appear to have an adverse efiect upon the epidemic Many bodies are unhurried. The m ijority of the inhabitants have fled and the remainder are incapable of attending to the sick. The complete re turns of the progress of the diseasegives the number of oases at 2,388, dea'hs 879. Re turns from all but five of the infected dis tricts place the numb r of new cases in one day at 2,532, deaths 919. The contagion has spread to the Provinces of Lagono, where several cases have already occurred. Troops stationed in the city of Saragosa, where the disease is now raging, have been supplied with guitars to keep up their spirits. The music of these instruments can be heard day and night. Bab cock & Andrews of Syracuse, the proprietors of the big backet shop, probab ly the moat extensive in the state , tailed for $500,000 or more. The n m's principal officers was in Rochester New York and they had about eeventy-five branch offices distributed throughout the good sized in terior towns of this state, New England and Canada. The manager of the head offices here says they lost $75,000 on the May wheat bulge; (650,000 on the oil rise three wee ks ago and $35,000 in oil and $75,000 in Jersey Central. They figure their assets at a nominal rate mostly in office furniture and they haye $100,000 in customers' notes which are almost valuless. The bucket shop players all over tha state are badly hit. There is no list accessible of losses by outside parties, but it is claimed the amount will reach several hundred thousand dol lars. Reports received at the general office of the national cattle and horse growers association at St. Louis, from the various cattle raising regions in the west, are gen erally of the most favorable character. ViCo-president Prior, of Colorado, writes that the ranges are in fine condition, and the cattle fattening rapidly. General rains have prevailed, and all cattlemen are jubi lant over the prospects for a good year. A great many native and wintered Texas cat tle are leaving lor the northwest territories, and a general movement of cattle is being made in compliance with che law, and without molestation. No fever has as yet developed in any of the herds in this sec tion. Vice President Milne of New Mexi co, reports a healthy condition of the cattle in that territory and that the crop will be 5 per cent, more than last year. Vice President Harman, of Idaho, says that while little rain has fallen lately the grass is fine and the cattle doing splendidly. There is no disease among them and the cattlemen are very much encouraged by the outlook for the present season. Large numbers of stock catUe are beinsr shipped from West Idaho and Nevada to Wyoming. j Vice President Mitchell, of Nevada, reports ' a better condition of both the ranee and SATURDAY, AUGUST 1, cattle tnan for several years, and says though the hay crop on the river bottoms may.be lighter than usual the quality is better and a greater number of cattlemen will put up more hay for winter feeding than ever before. All these gentlemen say that the national cattle convention to be held in St. Louis in November is looked forward to with treat interest. and that the attention will be largely increased over that of last year. KANSAS FARMING. Noteworthy Incidents Among tb Farmers of the .State. The oat crop is reported immense in Washington county. Some corn in Kingman county meas- ures seven feet in height. Barber county says the Cressett bids the fair to be the finest fruit county m state. About fifti en bushels to the acre will be the wheat yield in Davis county this year. The recent heavy rains have inter fered much with the work of harvesting in Phillips connty. Potato bugs are doing considerable damage in certain localities, and it is feared will cut the crop short. Despite flood, web worms and other pests corn will make an extraordinary crop in Wilson county this year. Fredonia Citizen: The chinch bug has had a hard row to hoe this season on ac count of the excessive wet weather. Coal oil diluted, one part coal oil and seventy-four parts water, is a splendid remedy for web worms, says the Cha nute Times. Fredonia Citizen: Those farmers who have escaped overflow and web worms say they will have more corn this season than they raised last year. A Kansas farmer says that he put a stop to the heating of wheat by mixing with each fifty bushels a bushel of salt, and also kept weevels away. Burlington Patriot: The corn fields in this vicinity are makinga splendid show ing; a good deal of it is four feet high. The amount of damage done by the web worms will not be as much as is gener ally supposed. A man at Fort Scott has a curiosity at his place in the shape of a grape vine, which is filled with clusters of grapes and blossoms too. The clusters are about six inches long, with nice, round grapes, and on the same side are blos soms out in flower. Iola Register: Farmers who have been cutting prairie hay say that the crop is nearly twice as heavy as it usually is. Every available stalk of it should be cut. It will go far toward supplying the shortage of the corn crop. It is selling in this market now for $4 a ton. Medicine Lodge Cressett: A farmer informs us that his second crop of alfalfa is now ready for harvest. The first crop was cut on the 31st day of May. His only object in raising alfalfa in this country is that it hurries a man to get his first crop stacked before the second crop is ready to cut. Chanute Times: Our farmers have en joyed good crops for some six or seven years in succession, so that the psesent shortage, by reason of high waters and wet weather, should not be considered as remarkable or unlooked lor. There is no state that boasts of good crops for more than four years in succession, and then they are the result of constant ap plications of Paris green and other pre ventatives, used to drive away the ar mies of insects that regularly appear to prey upon one or more kinds or gram. Kansas is certainly far less afflicted in this line than any other state, and also suffers far less from the floods or the like. Oskaloosa Sickle: Out of over fifty acres of flax put in by Mr. Ed. Snyder, some 25 or 26 acres is dead beyond recovery, and Mr. S. thinks it was destroyed by some insect, though he has been unable to find any. The remainder of the field is in Liost excellent condition. The whole piece was in wheat, and in putting in the flax half of the ground was plowed and and on the other half the seed was merely cultivated in; and the dead flax is on the plowed portion, the good on the cultivated ground. We hope the cause of the trouble may be determined, as flax has been considered proof against almost any enemy heretofore. STOCK MOTES. Items Gleaned from the Kansas Press Ap pertaining1 to Stock and Stock "Raising. Horse thieves are getting to be a disa greeable nuisance of Dickinson county A pork packing establishment seems to be one of the coming institutions of Wichita. Long freight trains pull through Dodge City daily loaded with cattle from the the west. A man in Cawker City lost a fine horse bv pinkeye for which he had re fused $300. Pilot: Cuba is the best hog market in Republic county. It is estimated that 100w8gon loads were brought in on Tuesday. 1885. The floods in Crawford county have been the cause of considerable .lose of stock-raisers. One man lost 100 head to sheep. Clyde Herald: Mr. Emory Hakes, last week, lost by death, a very valuable stal lion, of which he estimates at $2,000. It was sick only twenty-five minutes. Knssell Live-Stock Journal: A car load of high grade shorthorn yearlings, ar rived her a few days ago. They were brought in by a party from Illinois, who will locate in this county. Topeka Journal: Nine hundred head of cattle, occupying eighty cars, were shipped from this city last week, to points in Colorado. This is the largest shipment ever made from here. Bu3sell Live-Stock Jovrnal: The assur ance of a large corn cro has stimulated some inquiry for hogs t j feed. Two farm ers in this county are wanting so con tract for 200 head of feeders each. Sedan Graphic: This" county' is over stocked ith hogs, and in consequence of poor prospects for a big corn crop, a man can get a porker by the mere ask ing for it. Last year a pig weighing 50 or GO pounds would readily sell for from five to seven dollars. Leavenworth Times: A pet sheep is one of the attractions in the courthouse. It makes regular visits to all the offices every day, and calls on the register of deeds about three o'clock. It runs up and down stairs as nimbly as a chamois and takes no back talk from anybody. The boys think a great deal of it. Gaylord Herald: Messers, Scott & Haskell have recently purchased and added to their herd at this place two thoroughbred Durham bulls, which are probably the best animals of the kind ever brought to Smith county, or we might say, to this state. One is from the famous heard of F. J. Barbee, of Paris, Kentucky, and is registered in the American herd book ns Airdiec of Gove hill, and his ancestors are recorded in the English herd book for thirteen gen erations back. He is a very handsome animal, and one of the best of a famous family. The other is registered as Peabody 3d, and boasts equally as good blood and ancient family as Airdie of GoveHill. He was bred by T. B. Hickman at Columbia, Missouri. These animals are likely to become famous in this part of the state, and lovers of fine stock should visit the stock farm of Messrs. Scott & Hasfiell near town and make the acquaintance of these repre se ntativeB of royalty. THE TjKMDEKSEX. items of interest pertaining to them. The 18 year old daughter of J. M. Stebbins, of Spring Valley township, McPherson county, while kindling a fire with some light wood, was burned to death by the fire catching to her cloth ing. Mr. and Mrs. Stebbins had gone to Canton leaving the young lady and two smaller children at home. The children were out or the house at the time of the fire. The young lady ran out of doors and to some distance from the house, and when found her clothing was all burned off and her body burned to a crisp. She lived twenty-four hours. The house was also burned. A brother went to Dodge City last week to rescue a sister if possible, and reclaim her for the mother who gave her birth. It was the same old story. She had been deceived by her lover who had led her from the path of virtue and then deserted her, leaving her among strangers and friendless. After consid erable persuasion the brother succeeded in obtaining his sister's consent to re turn home. Her parents are respectable and highly connected people of a city in this state. Marysville News: Miss Maggie Fleish man met with a painful accident last week which came near proving fatal. She was going up stairs with a lamp, and when near the top the lamp dropped from her hand and exploded. The oil caught fire and the flames flashed np around her, setting her clothes on fire. Luckily help was near at hand and the flames were soon extinguished, but not until her arms and lower limbs were badly burned. A Mrs. K. JohnBey, of Wichita, came near going to her death a few days ago, while attempting to light a fire with kerosene. If it had not been for the timely assistance of an outsider, the lady would have burned to death. Leavenworth Standard: Mrs. Annie Griffiieshas filed a petition with the clerk of the district court for a divorce from her husband Phillip Griffies,on the grounds of gross neglect of duty. Manhattan Nationalist: One of Man hattan's most worthy women started out, the other dav. to circulate a petition that mothers should keep their children in their own yards. Mrs. Gibb, wife of a minister has been delivering some very eloquent sermons at Delphos, to great satisfaction of her audiences. A little daughter of A. Smith, of Attica Harper connty, died in horrible agony a few days ago. Cause: A Kerosene acci dent. ' Le Boy prides herself on having one of the best musicians in the state. Mfci Amanda Schmitt.
