We have watched with considerable inter rat the progress of this important industry; and long (o we noted the probable devel opment of the wool growing burioest. Oji conjectures have proven correctly; and we are pleased to see the growth of the wool crowing interests. The correspondent of the Leavenworth Timta writing from Larn ed,iaj(: Wool growing haa become a lead ing and profitable business in the Arkantu Valley, and in no one county is it more successfully prosecuted than in Pawnee. In 1878 there were 6,383 ehtep in the county, being an increase over the number 1877 of 1,185. I hare not been able to procure the figures as to the wool clip of 1878 and 1879, bui for 1877 it amounted to 18,686 pounds. The mild climate, the well watered country and almost limillea) range make this coon try a most suitable place to raise sheep. Al ready the attention of leading ehtep men has been attracted here, and Pawnee county to-daT numbers among her farmers some of the moot experienced and successful sheep raisers in the country. Samuel Archer, a breeder of thoroughbred s beep and who is authority in such matters. hits: "I regard the gruses of Central and Southwestern Kansas as better than those of Colorado, New Mexico or any portion of the country on the west side of the plains. The east side of the plains, Southwestern Kansas, is undoubtedly the btst in every re spect; the grasses growing thicker on the ground and growing longer. The water fa cilitits are much better in Southwestern Kansas than any other section I know of in the west. Another great advantage over Northern Kansas and Colorado is the milder winters, fewer storms and lighter wind?, thus not calling for so much expense in providing shelter and food. G. II. Wadsworth, whose saeep farm ia near Lamed, makes sheep raising his busi ness. With him agricultural pursuits are of secondary interest or consideration. Quoting ftom a letter written by Mr. W. some time since, in which he is relating his experience with ahwp in the Arkansas Valley, he save: "I fed the winter of 1876 about fifty tons of bay, and some seven hundred bushels of corn. My entire loss from disease during the winter was lour head. The winter O, 1877 I fed thirty-five tons of hay and five hundred bushels of corn, and my loss for the year was only per cent. I am using the Spanish Merino bucks. I have sold the past two years $3,375 woith of wool, and 3,713 worth of sheep. Sir. Wadsworth agrees with Mr. Archer In what he says in regard to this being the best portion of Kansas in which to raise sheep. He says: "I do not eee how any one in the Eastern States can compete with those here in the production of wool it Mfe so much to winter stock where there . CCSUEg is no winter range, and requiring to moch high-priced land to feed upon in summer." King & Kjder started in earlj this spring near Larned, with 500 head of very fine sheep. Their flock it in very fine shape, sheuing a little over eight pounds each this season. As a fhtep and wool-growing country cone belter can be found on this continent than is to be found right here in the Tails; ot the Arkansas Valley, in the very heart oi which lie the lands of the Atchison, Topeka and Sinta Fe Railroad company, and mil lions of acres invite sheep raisers to come .and occupy them. Several families of colored people from .North Carolina are about to try the advan tages of Indiana as a plica of immigration In their class. Indiana is a good State, bat its political complexion can be very much improved upon by a liberal inflax ol color ed men. HAY. The Leavenwjrtb Times' correspondent writes of one of the future industries of the Arkansas Valley, a subject we have before referred to. lie eiyi: Another leading in dustry in Pawnee county just now (of which I may call it such) in hay. One firm alone, Lowrey. Boyd & Curlett, of Lamed, are shipping 200 tons per month; thi hay is worth at Larned from $3 0 tu a 5 60 prr ton. This firm lt.n n-ccmly purchased an right-borse power steam pros, of the latest and most approved pattern, at an expense ol $2,000. The enterprise ol the firm is to be commended. Their daily expenses amount to $50- Their markets are at Las Vegbs, Canon City, Pueblo, Ltadfille and Denver, Only the very best quality of hay is pressed, the inferior being sold to the proprietors of the flouring mill, who Use the same for fuel. Educating the Indians. The Wichita Beacon says the Indian Com raisiioner haa selected six boys and four girls, from the Arapaboe tribe; sixteen boys and four girls from the Cheyenne, to te educated. They came up with the wagon train and were on their war to Carlisle, Pa. They were all examined by Dr. Hodge, U 0. A., and passed a euccessml examination as to health and physical condition. The majority of them were dresed iu civilized dress and looked clean and bright. It seems to the Beacon that the Govern ment has at last chosen the most effective way of civilizing the Indian, in selecting the young for training, and removing them beyond the daily contact and influence of the breech-clout Indian'. In a few years they can be sent back as native ml sionaries, and in such numbers that they will have a social and moral power not possessed by the few. A good work is also being done at the agen cy. The older Indians are gradually be coming Self-reliant and docile, and while the progress is slow, yet from year to year we can see a decided improvement. HlsXIGIQUB. Presbyterian.
