West of the lOOtb meridian tba land is baked as bard as a rock. It is unfit for agricultural purposes unices irrigated. At one paint. Garden City, irrigation ditcbes are being dug on an extensive scale. The settlers told me that they gave one teu lb of the crop to the rail-* way company for the ue of the water. Of c«>ur«\ tb« railway build* the ditch. It is a move iu the right direction Western Ktnus and eastern Colorado mu<t be irrigated or abandoned as an agricultural countiy I iuet many wagon* filled with boueehuld g<»>ds and wouieu and chit* wb» w-ie returning to Ibe E*st e n Sut*»*.

Asking these men why they did n<>t try the mountains, they answered: 'Wa have boeu there.

'What! drive them back uow?' I aaked. •Yea. now,' wes the answer. I smiled, and aufgeirted that the cattle woald re main in the Arkansas Valley nntil grain grew; that it was not possible to drive them to the Republican in the present condition of the range. The horseman turned to as* end said: 'Do yon know nnything about cattle? Do yen know nnything ebout buffalo grass?* 'Yes, I do. I know bow to handle cattle. 1 have seen the buffalo nnd the bunch grass. from the Yakima Biver In the Bod Biver of the North.' •Yon have! Thsa why do yon question me?
