be let.i It lay unused for yrarsund open

gotten, diarerardod, his title disputed,
hut if he claims that land, uses It nud
fenced It, hia title Im-couiuo impregna
ble. If nill Jouee owaa a baud saw
and It lay over at Muaeofee sad he
never uses It, hia title U thereby weak
ened but If he ban it in hi bands, us
ing it, who shall dlspnte his title? So
with us, If we have this laud In use,
under fence, no man will have the face,
not the braton-jawod Oklahoma l'ayne
himself, wilt have the check to dispute
our right.
Hccond. People of cnrroundiiin

Too Llieiokties have vast country
and neither uso it yourselves nor wiil

ilisation." By ftnrlosior; this land with
a fence we destroy the foroe of this ar
gument and cloiw their lips ho.auno wr
nre uaintc It oureelves.
Third. It LC.it 08 etronK political al
lien and frisuds of these stockmen,
who with 'heir wealth are a powerful
organization. Th-y will work with us
to keep the country unchanged, and
upend their neuey If need be, not lrn

de.nio.vml by Millers, their buainese
pmie they would hao to in 11 out and
loaVH the strip.
Fourth. When our eolloctorH OmI
went out with reeotjuUed authority
thew cattlemen ebifled their hords
1 ickward and forward and acrms the
Kansas line, so that many herds cfi'oc
tualiy evaded our colWotrs and mon
ey whUh whoulj havo -ootne to our
safe, ataid Nafely in the aafj at Cahl

would he Impossible. Thus foncins: en
sures Uut collection of the tax. and will
largely lucieuse tho revenue.
Fifth. Since this fencing is in many
ways valnnblc to tho btorkuien and
slnco when feueel It woulJ bu worth
nmch muro to them, wo might, 'lntn
tho bflMuoaK ia BUlllciontly orsaiiirvd
rnlio tho tax from 40 cc&t.i to M oenls
per head and thus at ono stroke double
our already increased revenuo.
Ilesids those advantages to tho Na
tion nre others which a thinking roan
may see, rach as a protection from
State agression, the stealing and
liHUliirfr. out of tunlKr, unit, etc.

oua a :lto wil.l.' t (I'm vt;.mc, to
proro our point let nn to-day go
through fire aud water.
Paopla at large do not perhaps)
know the gnat probability there is
that souio of thoe dayo oue of our
rostly Hetninn.ries will be burnt lo
the ground ; and tho marvel Vi our
eyes in how thoy have escaped de
struction ho long. Tho present
system ol h-ating them is pretty
euro to result In burning thow
down. Within tlm Inst few months
we hare had a littlo blue or two,
extinguished duly just iu time to
avoid a conflagration. On day
last torni a bed wu ia llamoa ; pro
bably a aprk from the fir had fal
len on it. Tho boyi wire at their
leosoiH ; and without doubt the
building would havo been destroy
ed, hud not n boy, chancing to
leave the school room, perceived
the imoko. As it waa, it wast with
the utmost difficulty that tho mat
tresit could bo removed to the yard
to burn itself out quietly. We
hnvo no meatus of txliuiiirhing a
tlarao loo large to bo trampled
down, for thero is no water. But
w iull apcik of (hat a littlo fur
ther on.
The Beniinarlcs .ihould be heat
ed by hot watur. The preaent nr-
rviRCuieiit C'j'.ii'ts deBti'uetioM nud
will conio by it. Fur the graatcr
part of tho rooms are provided
with open fire-plarcs. In cold
weather tho buys make large lirea.
When thoy lcavo their rooma for
public dutiej, they build up the
firiot to bum till their return. Tho
wood rrftcklett, aotue of it flies out
on tito wooden floor, or outli" bed,
oa above related, nnd, unlena Home
body chuncea to be paisinr, Jio
wholo building intiBt burn out.
Aud those who know these thiugs,
ami yot will not rectify them nro
uerlninly rosponsiblo to tho Nnttbn
for tho buildings rutd to God for
nny lives lost.
And thcu this la a sAinnls of ex
travagant economy. The amount
of wood used in supplying :very
room vrtth a fire-placo in very
great j whereas one such Giro would
bo nlmoat suwelent to ivnrm tho
wholo building ; and the diflercnoo
would soon pay for tho outlay in
providing hot water apparatus.
This quostion chould bu oertainly
entertained by those who hnvo the
direction of public ofl'aira.
And now with regard to water.
Tho Male Hemlnary has no water
within a utile of iu front door,
whence proceed tho following un
satisfactory results. In ise of a
lire breaking out, we are positive
ly helpless ; iu (he summer .nonths
when tho water has stood in tho
can all day, it is w.:rm, unpleasant
and unwholesome : iii the severe
winter wwMher it friezes on Us way
from tho sjirins;, and wc bnw had
Uyo without J'oi two or thri tl.tyn
at a lime, usiu nothing but rain
water from tho roof. Aud in order
to comply with this absurd regula
tion and condition of tilings we aio
