The Arkansas City Traveler says Inspector Ua
worth is spending a week at the Chllocco school,
overseeing the receipt or cnttlo and noting the gen
eral progros of that Institution.
There is no better located or stocked range In
the country than W. E. Campuoirs, which ho has
advertised for sale, ills increase In cnlves this
year shows up llnely, and as they are from lirst-class
bulls, will show up on the scales In two or throe
years In great shapc-Caldwell .Journal.
The horse market tlio past week has boon vory

was so sort that it was Impossible to work the herds,
and honco but lew sales were made. With a rew

this market will bo greatly diminished .Caldwell
A small bunch of the Noz Purees have Just made
their annual visit to thoCheyenncsand Arapahoes,
this being their regular custom, It seems. Chief
Yollow Bull was In charge, and as thoj went about
the Agency, they could bo easily distinguished from
other Indians by their being dressed In eltl.ens
clotliing and the marked contrast In their fenturos.
The Nez Percos are quite a civilized people, to say
the least nearly or Quito all of them having adopt'
ed citizens' dress to lake the place of the clumsy
blanket. They remained hero over a week, talking
over olden times and feasting with the Cheyonnes
and Arapahoes. Having known Yollow Bull for
several years, of courso ho called to see the "papor

Hie same pool. The cattle weie sold range count,
and the supposition Is that there are 1,750 head of
mixed stock, and these were run In, Including the
range and puol privileges, at Sio per head lor
evoo thing branded before this yoar. Considering
that the cattlo are In a pa; lure, the lease lo which
runs for four years, and that it Is one of the best
ranges on the Cherokee Strip, the nice paid was
no more than the stock was woitl. The fact that
the purchasers are perfectly acquainted with the
properly they purchased, all being large owners in
the same pasture, Is an indication that they are
satisfied to run cattle In the Territory. Medicine

A t'w iemrks on the physical geography of the
so-called Oklahoma country will probably be of
Interest at this time: "The southwestern portion
of It has much sandy, hilly, barron and uompara
tlfidy worthless land, upon which grass grows
st-Hrscly, and which Is wholly unlit for agi (cultural
purpoies. Some good land lies along the Cimar
ron bottoms, but the dlvidos or ridges between gul
lies and gulches that loud oil the small creeks, are
very high, sandy lands, that work easily, and are
bairen and sterile after mid-summer. The bouth

the country Is also worth but mile for tanning. Its
lowlitiuh, marslies and swamps produces some ftir
gras- and Umber. Taken as a whole, the Oklaho
ma, country is neatly over-rated by those who have ,
given It but a suicrilclal Inspection, and by those i
who, i mm interested motives, are lobleiing and'
keeping ulhe tltche suil-aiiiiu.il or .-eml-oecaaion-

are lit for grazing purposes only, and the strangest
thing is that there are men ton-.tant'j leaving good
farms to seek new ones m this untiiul country
when they know they can gain nothing. Hut the

An exchange says : The aversge cowboy is it
much abused personng'i. It Is he who stands ao
cusod of all tho frontier crimes when tho authors
are unknown. A mail train Is robbed, the thlovos
escape and knowing newspapers declare It Is tho
deed of cowbois. A fence Is cut, and tho same
news peddlers raise a howl against cowboys. A
man found mur.iered. tho lougo burnedj a town
painted or a sheriff stood oir, and Iho whole thing
Is laid lo the cowboys. Now, boys, what has
brought this bad name upon a class of sturdy citi
zens, whose occupation is as honoruble and peace
ful as an) v It Is the presence In your midst of a
few, very lew, coarse, wicked spirits, for whom
hanging would be about the proper article. A cow
boy should be a boy or man who works with herds
and drives entile. Would you clear the term "cow
boy" from tho odium it boars? If so, drive from
among you the wild, reckless characters, whoso
presence only serves as a bad example. Tho
vicious, Idle curs are tho ones relored to, those who
shirk their share tf the hard woik, and prefer to
loaf around towns and scare some tcudeifool with
bragged-. clo airs, to standing night herd or riding
lines all day. 'ILc forLlddb.g of car rjlng deadly
weapons Iims It u suggested by n.any persons and
publications as "a means of laming tho cowboy,"
This Is a mistake; tho cowboy does not need "lam
ing," and it Is fair Ibat every honest man in charge
ot valuatlc property should be armed until the
thicker felticrftent oi cattlemen on the ranges and
moieefilelent operation of the clltcer ol the law
enables them to dUpeusu with Winchesters and
six-shooters. Tl' general lun or cowboys' work la
not laborious, and the wages paid in most ca&es Is
bUHreient lo enable the economical herder to lay by
a competence, wmch, by .jiidieioiii Investing, may
mow into a nko bunch ol cilllo. Many a "cattle
king" entered Iho business as a herder, but you

did never Indeed away their time in gambling
